Let’s fly Céline and Val to Portugal
Organisé pour : Céline Mateus
Hi guys I’m here today because I need a huge favor.I need your help to fly my sister and my niece to Portugal this summer. My family and I have been renting a house there for the past 5 years, it’s a place that we really love and where we can recharge our batteries We had invited my sister Céline and my niece Val to join us this summer, but a few months ago Céline was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. She’s been in a lot of pain since, and suffers numerous side effects from treatments. She’s had to take time off from work and had to meet unexpected expenses. She told me recently that because of this she couldn’t afford to buy plane tickets to join us in Portugal We’re so bummed this is happening to her. She’s a single mom and works her ass off to provide for her and her daughter. My niece has diabetes, she was diagnosed at age 4, m’y sister has been raising her alone for 17 years.Three years ago our mother passed away unexpectedly, they were both very close to her and it hit them pretty hard.And now the psoriatic arthritis.Yet they never complain, they’re so strong and brave.I feel this is just too unfair.I hate to ask for anything for myself, but this time I have to ask because Céline and Val not being able to take this vacation us just not possible with all they’ve been through.I have recently written four headband patterns, two knit and two crochet. I put one up on Ravelry a few days ago and was gonna do the same with the other three, but I figured I’d wait and offer them to you instead to fund my sister’s trip to Portugal. Anyone who contributes any amount to this fund will receive my patterns as a huge thank you You can use them yourself, or give them to someone you love. Thank you so much for reading this, and thank you for your help !
