Flight For New Life - Hope this is okay to post!

Recommended Posts

So my friend is trying to do an amazing thing. And I hope its okay to post this, if it is not Im sorry mods! And please delete it.

 

Im going to post the email she sent out trying to help this family, and the website that goes with it to.

 

Quote:
The last six months have been incredibly hard for a family I know. A friend of mine lost his job and had to deal with the obvious issues there. But shortly thereafter, his dad passed away after a three-month health battle. While it is a part of life, it doesn't make it any easier for him or his family. He and his family, like so many others, have had a tough time dealing with the circumstances.

 

A bright spot in his life is that in about two to three weeks, his daughter will be having her first child. The only problem is that my friend is in Tuscon, his daughter is in South Carolina. He and his wife would love to be there with their daughter when she delivers to share that moment with her. All he needs is two plane tickets from Tuscon, AZ to Greenville, SC. Of course, when you can't even make your basic ends meet, purchasing plane tickets likely isn't too realistic. So, I've anonymously put together a fund for him, and I'm trying to raise $1,300 (tickets, as you know, aren't cheap). Feel free to go to Flight for New Life. You'll find information about the family as well as information about donations.

 

Here's what I need you to do: pass this along to as many people as you can in an effort to raise the funds needed. I know the economy isn't conducive to charitable giving...it's hard to pay for everything WE need, let alone trying to help others who we may not even know. That said, I completely believe that what goes around comes around, and you will be rewarded for your kindness.

 

If we can just get 130 people to donate $10, we're set. Or 65 to donate $20...you get the idea. There's no donation to small, and none too large. It won't take long for us to be able to make something amazing happen for this family if we just take a few minutes to pass this along!

 

Thank you so much for your help!

Please feel free pass this along to anyone you may know.

 

Thank you for reading!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
