Travel Ready to Aid the Challenged

$350 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 16 months

I would like to promote travel to more parts of the United States than my present Social Security benefits can afford to cover.

I am legally blind with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration and I am very frugal in how my monies are spent. I have zero credit card debt.

I am IATA certified as the President / and CEO to Travel Ready, Incorporated; a Corporation that has developed a website, with the visually and physically challenged in mind, requiring practically no typing necessary to navigate the Internet.

While Travel Ready is listed as a profit baring Corporation, it does not sell travel nor does it gain from any advertising revenues. Its' website represents about 10 years of development.

Visit Travel Ready's website.

United Airlines today, [June 1, 2017] has stepped up to the plate, creating a level playing field for me, in providing me with 5 CD75 Travel Certificates [comparable to the AD75 discounts given to Travel Agents that Sell Travel] that will be good for five round trip flights to anywhere that United Airlines flies at 75% off regular FULL FARE and they are good until May 23, 2018.  It is my hope that more of travel industry might show the same willingness to accommodate the handicap as Alaska AIrlines has already done and in how United Airlines has now done for me.

With United's help, I hope to raise enough monies to cover the reaming 25% to these air fares and assist on the remaining expenses to this trip.  A lifelong goal I have had has been to go to Paris, France and to use some of my French education that I had acquired in High School and again, while attending the University of Washington.

My anticipated expenses for Seattle to Paris, France will be: [30 days]
Round Trip Air Fare $ 350.00 - [FULL FARE: $1,398.00]
Lodging:  $1,050.00 - [$ 35.00 per night] - International Hostel.
Meals: $ 450.00 - [$15.00 per day]
Transportation - Euroline Bus Pass: 325 EU [15 day] / or 420 EU [30 day], Euro Rail Pass: $ 468.00 [5 days]

Eurorail Pass:

An ex-military officer, with whom I have travelled in the past,  will be accompanying me on this trip; should I be able to fund it.  During this trip I will be photographing all of the major landmarks along the way; progressively postimg them to my websites.

Background to Robert Wright:
I was in an automobile accident in 1955 when I was 16 days old [when there was no such thing as seat belts] causing damage to take place to my optic nerve and causing some degree of brain damage.  I cannot drive a car so my primary means of transportation is from public transit systems.

Since 1987  I have been attending  technology trade shows as a way of monitoring the advancements in technology; taking my discoveries and incorporating them in 1999  into website like:

United Airlines has moved the expiration date to their "75% off travel vouchers" to me to May, 2019 since I was unable to use them at this time. The money raised so far, $325.00;$350-[$25 GoFundMe service fee] remains untouched and still committed to this travel objective. Can you help me raise the needed $2,000 for a 30 day trip to Paris and surrounding areas?
