Birthday trip to Hawaii

Birthday trip to Hawaii

From Heidi Adams

I know the only reason you won't be taking me out for a birthday coffee are the oceans & landmasses in the way, so I'm humbly asking you help me pay for a trip to visit my marvellous sister on Maui.

Final Update!
A huge MAHALO for the amazing gifts, large and small, from everyone who helped fund my Hawaiian trip. I exceeded my goal - not only did you help cover the cost of my big flight, but some of the extra travel costs such as train tickets and car rental. Thanks!

My lovely sis and I had a fabulous time- I think we spent the 1st 24 hours just talking our little hearts out. As I said before, it's been over 2 years since we saw each other, but I realized it might have been a decade since we've actually spend time together just the 2 of us. It was heaven to get to spend this quality time with Em. Thank you, thank you!

More Info

As you may already know, I live in England and my lovely sister, Emily, lives on Maui - we are oceans apart and rarely get to see each other.  It's been over 2 years since we saw each other in person and that was only due to a funeral - so a bittersweet reunion.  I'm asking that anyone who might be inclined to take me out for a coffee, might gift me that cost instead to help me pay for a trip to visit Emily this year.

Update #5

Up at 5 am this fine cold morning in Blighty, checked in and awaiting my 1st flight! Thank you for all your generous gifts! It’s not too late to help me reach my goal and you can gift me with as little as $2 - a bottomless instant joe from a roadside diner!

Update #3

Thank you, thank you! All the gifts I've received to help make this trip possible are amazing. Having just discovered my suitcase was broken beyond repair, we've now replaced it and I'm packing it up! I leave for London tomorrow night for an early departure Friday morning!! I'm so close to my goal of covering the cost of my flights - hooray!!

Update #2

Hooray! I'm over the halfway point. Many thanks to all the generous givers helping me pay for this trip to visit Em. This wonderful law enforcement officier, my sis, now has her shift schedule finalized and it's better then we 1st planned, meaning I get to spent even more time with her for the week I find myself in Hawaii. Again I say HOORAY!
I've attached a photo of our first trip to Hawaii ages ago before we ever imagined Emily would move there to an island in the Pacific and me move to another island in the North Atlantic!

Wow, thank you for the generous gifts I've received! My wonderful husband, amazing mother-in-law and a kind scholar visiting from Canada have worked out a childcare schedule to cover my household duties in my absense. As my sons will be on school half-term holiday during my trip, this is really big gift from them. I'm about half way there, please help me be able to return home.
