Hi, my name is Ms.Roberson and my son name is Brandon. My son and I need your help by making a donation.

Brandon's dad was deported to his country in the West Indies before Hurricane Sandy.

 Me, a single parent, part-time day care assistant, and Avid volunteer for many causes...

 At this time, I can't afford to fly me and my son over to see his dad. Plane tickets and passports for us both are expensive at this time.

My son was and still is very close to his father.

My son has never stopped crying over his dad since his departure before Hurricane Sandy by  Looking at his pictures of them together makes him cry and it hurts me as a mother that I can't help him.

my son is in therapy to help him to heal from his emotional wounds that this sudden dramatic event-caused in his life.

 Your donation will help provide us with passports and plane tickets to fly to the country. 

This trip will give Brandon the chance to see him once again and bring hope to his heart and a smile on his face.

I ask you all to Please find it in your heart to make a donation for this trip.

Immigration/deportation destroys families;please don't allow another family to be destroyed.

Note: If our  financial goal is not met,I will place a new campaign and The monies already raised will be placed in a special savings at my financial institution. 

God bless,

From Brandon and ms.Roberson
