Operation Homebound

From Marie Eagan

We're finally moving to Virginia! While we have been saving and continue to do so, there are still a lot of expenses to cover for the journey from CA to VA, most of which are *not* covered by the military.

More Info

Hi friends! We have a date for Mikey's separation-- August 28th! We'll be moving from Coronado, CA to Norfolk, VA to really start our lives together. While we're super excited, there are many expenses involved.

Current savings: $1800

Est total moving costs: $4800

What the military will pay for: moving our possessions to Norfolk

Our other expenses

  • Pets: bigger carriers, travel litter boxes, harnesses, "play pens" for when we're in hotels, updated vaccinations & grooming (we don't want Miss Joy to overheat!), cleaning supplies in case of accidents
  • Hotel stays plus possible pet fees
  • Gas
  • Food/drink
  • Car maintenance (we need to both make sure she's in top shape before we drive across the country and have money in savings in case something goes wrong on the way)

Of course, we also need money to get settled in Norfolk. This is why we're asking for your help! As mentioned above, we do have money in savings and are continuing to save. However, we have gone through our budget and what we can put away won't be nearly enough to pay for our travel and help us get through the first few weeks-- obviously, we need somewhere to live!

We understand that the past few years have been financially difficult for so many people. Even if you donate $5, you'd still be contributing to ensure a safe journey for all four of us and a good new beginning for us.

If you would rather donate through another medium, please send us a private message on Facebook. 

We appreciate the time you've taken to learn about our fundraiser and hope to give you updates on how donations have helped us =)
