Almost two years ago, I met Ellie through random chance and after a few months we fell in love. She was and is one of the most honest and caring people that I know and I feel insanely lucky that I have her in my life. It is difficult, since she lives in Brazil and I live in the United States, but we make it work. Last summer, we managed to raise up enough funds on our own to bring her out to visit. That month with her was one of the happiest times of my life. It felt almost surreal, and every day I had to remind myself that this wasn’t some dream. When she had to leave, that nearly broke my heart. But we promised that we would be together again. She would come to see me and we would be able to hold each other again. But after a year of unexpected bills and money problems piling on top of each other, we’re short on funds. So we decided to see if the people of the world could help us be together. We don’t need much, just enough to help cover the cost of transportation. We would be forever grateful to anyone who could help us. We can’t be together permanently, but just being able to visit over the summer would be an amazing gift. I treasure every second that I spend with her in my life, especially those times when I could hold her hand and have her close to me. I often can’t ask for help, especially asking for money. But I feel no shame in asking for help with this because I want this more than anything else in the world.
