Attend my Father's Funeral

Organized by: Iain Paruig Fancourt McDonald

THE STORY:

So, my father passed away on the morning of Sunday, 13 March and sadly my career has not boomed just yet. I thought I had more time to prepare for a new airfare for when this day finally came, but I did not. I live and work in Los Angeles as a dog-walker outside of my acting career. Unfortunately, I am without the finances to get myself promptly home to attend my father's funeral service and to be there for my mother and sister through this trying time. My heart breaks that a part of me has accepted that it's likely I cannot be there. Crowdsourcing is not a route I would ordinarily take, but too many friends have said "You should do it. Just put it out there and see what comes. And if it's meant to be..." So, here I am, hat humbly in hand asking that... If I've ever brought any joy or assistance to your life... be it for a moment, a reason, a season or a lifetime, now is the time that I have worked to make peace with the somewhat unfamiliar vulnerability required to gently ask for your assistance at this time. My goal is $2500USD to cover: - last minute return flights, connections, etc from LAX to BNE - connection trains from BNE Int'l Airport to Roma St Train Station - cheapest available return train/bus from Roma St to my parents' house in Maryborough, Qld. - part of my lost income from being away from home (only enough to cover the part of my monthly rent that I cannot earn while I'm away), - any leftover contributions will be used to assist my Mother in packing the house ready for relocation to somewhere smaller. I intend to be there from Sunday, 20 March to Sunday, 3 April so I don't have much time to make goal so if you're considering if, even just $10 please act now. Postponing action may make the difference as to whether we can make this happen. I will be living frugally and miserly to keep the costs down and have been conservative in my research on flights, travel, etc. Between $10 and $20 from enough of you, my beautiful amazing people (who've brought me to tears with your love and support these last few days) would go much further than you'd know. And if I make my goal and I DO get to be there for my family when they need it most... I will not forget this pivotal moment in our lives that you were there for me. I mean that. I will be keeping a list of names of contributors and I will find a way to return the favor for you paying it forward in my time of need. And I'm good at getting creative. Thank-you for taking the time to read this, I will happily put money towards yours if you ever find yourself in such a pickle or have a creative project.
