Help me visit my family
Organized by: Jalal Agouli
Where did it go? Why did it turn out this way?
Those questions are flooding my head time and time again. From MA to FL my family was split before the blink of my eyes. My world, at the time, came crashing down before i knew it.
I was 7 years old at the time when my cousin(Josh) had moved unexpectedly with his family down to Florida. This wasnt just anybody to me, he was my brother, my friend, and the only person that knew me best. It was apparent to anyone that had ever met us by the way we communicated and the love we had for eachother. Josh, being only 4 months older than me, was a mentor to me. Everything i have learned was from him and i wouldnt take it back for the world.
Every few years I would take a trip down and "catch up" in a short period of a week or so which was clearly not enough giving the time it takes just to get down and settle in.
The time is now coming where he is going to be graduating highschool. One of the biggest achievements of our lives that we had always dreamed of accomplishing together. The only thing holding us back? The money.
Why not pay for it yourself you ask? I have a job working 30+ hours a week, i am a frugal spender with my money and am not the average teenager going to parties every weekend or making dumb decisions. I am a hard working, highschool student, who plays sports and is maintaining average grades. My parents unfortunately this time cannot pay because of unexpected expenses that came around.
The reason i am reaching out to go fund me is to finally be able to connect with my cousin again. The money would be used to get me down there, watch his graduation, and stay the summer. Everything that i have ever wanted since i was a young child. Any left over money will be re-invested into another persons account. Thankyou for your time to read my story and i appreciate ANY donations made.
