Help Me Get To RootsTech 2018

Campaign created 8 months ago

My name is Kenny and I am crowdsourcing funding again to help me get to RootsTech. RootsTech is the largest genealogy conference in the world. Why would I ask help getting here? Because I believe Genealogy can help with some of the problems in the Inner City AKA Ghetto.

I believe by helping kids know their past, it can empower them to have bright futures. This convention teaches a wide range of skills that I can return and pass on to others via my non-profit corporation, the Genealogy Gangster Foundation.

This week we were rear-ended on Interstate 25 in Denver, and the damage will cost us having a Christmas holiday and even more to get the car repaired as the insured driver's insurance company states the repairs are worth more than our car, so they won't be fixing it. We have to do that ourselves.

Having to fix said car will cost me the money I was hoping to set aside to get to RootsTech. I've also been hired (not for pay) by several small newspapers to cover the event, so I will even have a journalist badge which was already covered by FamilySearch I just need help getting there and the hotel costs. Can you help me? Going to this will help me educate the kids of the ghetto here and have a long-lasting effect on their lives and my own.

Two years ago this community has helped me attend via a gofundme campaign I set up then. Can you guys help me again?

Friends, with some financial difficulties that have hit our family over the past few weeks i cannot attend this convention without your help which shuts down my journalistic career in Genealogy and could have serious affects on my non-profit. I am begging for your help now, please help if you can, please share if you cant!
Us and Elder Stacy
