Reunite with my son after 8 years

Welcome to my campaign Who would benefit from this campaign my son Xavier. He lives in Arizona with his mother and his brothers and sisters. I haven’t seen my son since he was 9 months old. But I took care of the family until we broke up. I was so broken hearted and at that time I couldn’t find work. So my old job in California decided to take me back with a higher salary. I couldn’t miss that opportunity because I had a son to take care of so I moved back to California. But every weekend I was flying out there to visit my son Xavier. I was not going to be a dead beat father like my father. My grandmother raised me up and my Godfather Alan Dean Foster the sci-fi writer was the only father figure I had and he did a great job. Xavier is 9yrs old he just turn 9yrs old on January 21st I didn’t see him because the mom and I stop talking for a very long time until now. Why we stop talking because she just stop calling me and when she did call it was always a block number. All of sudden she contact me though email asking me for my cell number telling me Xavier want to talk with me. So all day I waited but no phone call. So once again I contact her why didn’t Xavier call me she wrote me back saying he will once again I look like a idiot waiting but no phone call. Since then I know my next move is just have her sermons to go to family court for visiting rights. That’s when I decided to make a GoFundMe campaign because I can’t afford it at the moment are my family. Let me explain I’m the manager of a sober living home. I don’t make much but I love my job I give back to the clients by sharing my story of recovery. So I’m asking please reunite me and my son I miss so much time with him I don’t want to miss another chance with him. But I have a big heart I’m not trying to take him from his mom but one thing for sure I won’t be no door mat. I have rights to as his father I want to be friends with the mom. How soon funds are needed I have a week from today give me enough time to buy the plane ticket and pay the court fees for visiting rights. If I don’t do it in a timely matter I can really lose him for good. What support means to me Please share my campaign that will really help and donations I have been carrying this load alone for such a long time and your support means a lot to me. Xavier been without me for over 8 years. I’m so thrilled with the idea of being reunited in person with my son. Read More

Enter Your Details

The details are the foundation of your campaign. Determine how much money you want to raise for your travel campaign and by what date. Leave enough time for people to learn about your trip and to donate, but not so much time that they forget. Come up with a compelling title that is specific to the trip you plan to take, and why you need money (you can always go back and edit this later). A good title is actionable and gives visitors an idea of why you are raising money. The title introduces visitors to your campaign so explain why your cause is important and give people a reason to learn more.

Tell Your Story

Write a description that tells potential donors why you are raising money to travel and how you will use the funds. Be honest and genuine about your campaign and why it is important to raise money. The more details you can give visitors about your trip, the more personal and authentic a campaign becomes. When that happens, people begin to feel connected to a cause and are much more likely to donate.
