Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am 23 years old and currently reside in the UK. I work full-time in an office job. I have family in America i.e Nan, Uncles, Aunties & cousins who live there. Now i have never actually met them in person but we keep in monthly contact as best we can via social media mainly Facebook. I really want to take the next step and fly out to surprise them as my Nan isn't getting any younger and has heart conditions and does regular cardio exercises to make sure she keeps her heart as healthy as ever. Following that this makes flying for them very complicated and as we know flights to america aren't cheap. I want to get myself out there because i wouldn't be able to live with myself if anything happened to my family members before having the change to meet them. I struggle financially with a basic wage and paying bills the normal adult struggles.
My Nan always says how much she would love to meet me and it would be the best day of her life and i want to be able to make that happen, so any help would be highly appreciated. I cant explain the feeling of how much this means to me and you are probably thinking if he works and he really wanted to he would of saved and done it by now but life just doesn't work out that way i guess.
Please help me meet my family for the first time in my life it would definitely be one to knock off my bucket list and make an grandma the happiest she has been by meeting her first born grandchild.
