Weʼre raising £2,000 to Visit last living grandparent who I haven't seen in 18 years
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.
My grandparents moved back to Hong Kong a long time ago and my grandfather passed away there. I last saw them 18 years ago when I went with my eldest. My grandmother is now 92 and doing well though her memory is going on short trips by itself.
I had a heart attack nearly 4years ago and died briefly. My family want me to go visit my grandmother and see her one last time however as a single parent I just cannot afford the plane tickets. She's never met my youngest and it would be great to meet other members of my vast family, once. I have a new niece who was born just days after my heart attack.
I'm asking you for help to help me achieve this and to enable me to visit my grandfathers grave. My other grandparents are buried in London which is easier to visit.
The money would be used to purchase 3 plane tickets to Hong Kong as well as travel insurance as I have been diagnosed with heart failure amongst other things.
I don't know how else to express my gratitude to you other than to say a heartfelt thank you for helping to fulfil a wish
