I'm creating this in hope to raise enough money to send my older brothers to Milton Keynes, UK to see the band Pearl Jam. The reason I'm doing this is because they have given so much to me I was hoping to return the favor. My two brothers have basically raised my sister and me since I was 2 years old. Both of my parents are alcoholics and overall bad parents. My dad was abusive to all of us and are mother would leave us weeks at a time without food or heat. Eventaully 3 of us were sent to foster care because of neglect, and almost a year later my oldest brother finally convinced my father to return and take us out of the states custody. When my father came back I was 5 and was still a heavy drinker and phisically and mentally abusive. He kicked my oldest brother out every other month and threatened to send us back to foster care nearly every week because he (and my other brother) would try to protect us. My father got drunk every night, not kidding, every night. So until I was 10 they cooked us dinner, cleaned the house and protected us from our father and worked. Once both of them had full time jobs and had enough money to afford a apartment they took my sister and I from my dad. They have/are sacrificing so much of there lives to raise us, and have done there best to make us have normal lives. My sister is now in her first year in college and I am in High school and doing great, I want to give them something that can show them how grateful my sister and I our for what they have done. I know its a lot of money but I figure it doesn't hurt to try.
