THE STORY:

I'm fundraising for A Ticket Forward, a new, travel oriented charity that launched in December 2014 to immediate global notoriety. We believe that travel is transformative. Our mission is to help survivors of abuse, cancer, and warfare (focusing on veterans and displaced persons) transform their lives through the impact of meaningful travel.

My love of travel was ignited at four years old when my father took the family to visit relatives in Scandinavia.  Later, I backpacked through England, France, Italy and Greece before heading south to Australia where I dove for the first time at the Great Barrier Reef.  I participated in Canada World Youth's International Women's Exchange to Ukraine where I volunteered in an orphanage for children with disabilities believed to have been brought on by Chernobyl.  I loved working in Copenhagen for five years where my bicycle was my best friend. 

Now I work fearlessly to help others with a desire to travel make their dreams come true.  If I win the world trip ticket, I'll donate it to one of our first four beneficiaries.  I would be so happy to help one of them achieve a travel dream.
