Hey friends!! So many of you have asked how you can help Christen get home from Asia for my wedding. Here you go. Please message Christen or myself privately with any questions or concerns. Thank you so much!.
Hi all! Christen's sister Kim here :)
Christen had planned to be in Asia for 2 years when, on Christmas morning 2021 (only 2 months into her stay in Bali), I was proposed to!! (At 49 for the first time) If you know us, you know what a major thing this is, and how I really never believed I would find my soul mate, best friend and the love of my life. He has brought so much hope and life into our lives, and having Christen here to be part of our day would be the ultimate and best thing ever!
Of course Christen freaked out, because she had spent A LOT of her reserves to get to Asia, to have lots of financial margin to rebuild and pursue new creative endeavors. She knew the costs (flights/food/visas/tests/xtra travel costs) associated with flying back to America was more than she had.
I took to my Facebook community to ask for help with lodging and when I did, lots of people asked how THEY could help bring Christen back for my special day.
So for all you amazing people asking how you can help…please see below.
1. Prayer…first and foremost. Please keep Christens journey home in prayer. We know God can and will move mountains to bring her home. Also for safety as she travels.
2. Financially…Money is uber helpful for flights, visas, tests, quarantine hotels, etc. So, if that's your preferred method of support, you can donate through this portal.
*If you'd prefer to use another method, just reach out to Christen directly via FB Messenger or Instagram DM @christen.rodgers
3. A few have asked if they can donate Frequent Flyer Miles. The answer is yes, of course. If you have miles you aren’t going to use, please contact Christen via FB Messenger or Instagram DM @christen.rodgers. I have no idea how that works and will screw that up.:)
Thank you so much for all the messages of support and love shown to Christen. She is so loved, so important and so needed here with her family for this amazing day.
