This fundraiser is to help reunite me with my family that I have not seen in over 10 years!

Hey family and friends! I have started this fundraiser as an alternative to my birthday this year. On May 18th I will turn 22 years old and I will not be celebrating.  In lieu of any kind of party, gift or greeting card, I just ask that you make a donation of ANY size to this cause.

Last year, my estranged family in Argentina found me on facebook and told me how much they missed me and wished that they could meet me. I had been trying to find them for some time but wasn't sure where to start. I decided that I really needed to meet them and get to know them because they are the closest link to my dad, who I never knew. And I think I deserve to know my WHOLE family. I especially want to meet my grandmother who is very elderly and may not be with us very much longer. So, I plan to take online classes for one semester and go to Argentina and stay with family for a few months and really get to know them and let them get to know me.

The money will go towards the expensive flights to and from Argentina and living expenses while I am there. I have been diverting a chunk of my pay to an "Argentina account" since last summer and I had saved $1600. Unfortunately, an emergency caused me to have to spend all that I had saved. Everyone in Argentina already knows of my plans and they constantly e-mail me telling me how excited they are for me to come, so I am determined to stay on track. I am not letting this setback deter me from my goal and I continue to work and save.

As a college student with a full time job, I know how valuable your money is, but ANY donation is greatly appreciated and will help me to reach my goal. Thank you for your generosity!!!!!!
