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!

    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
    • It's really tough when you put your heart and soul into planning your destination wedding and people aren't supportive for whatever reason. I think maybe letting people know how much it will cost for 2 weeks may be an issue -- a lot of people can't take that much time off and I"m guessing because it's such an extended period of time, the price may seem high to her. A good way of presenting a destination wedding celebration is to give rates based on 4 days, 3 nights -- which is typically what resorts will require for a group booking. This way, people will view it more of an extended weekend celebration and the time off as well as the costs becomes much more feasible to people. More likely, you'll have guests who will opt to stay longer and at that point you just let them know how much the extra cost will be. I suggest you talk to your best friend straight up about this and let her know how important it is for her to be there and find out what is holding her back. Communication is key!!
