A friend of mine approached me a few months ago asking what I had planned for next year. The answer is SO easy, big fat nothing. Being a caregiver and the person who brings home the bacon doesn’t leave me any energy or the ability to just go on vacation.
He has such a great idea and I’m stoked about it. I can’t wait to go on this adventure and for those local I have good news, you can come to! What we are planning is a motorcycle trip either our west or going east. Think my vote would be east. I will 100% NOT be on a motorcycle but in some type of RV. What my hope/dream is as I write this, is to get as many sponsors as possible and try to raise a bunch of money for charity. But also to take my family with me. We haven’t all been on a proper vacation in more years than I know.
The biggest obstacle right now is trying to find the means to rent a giant wheelchair accessible RV so that my mom is comfy, and has access to a bathroom. My plan is to vlog/blog and do other crazy things along the way to fundraise for both AboutFace and Sick Kids Hospital, if I’m super amazing lucky I’d like to add Grand River Hospital to the list.
This adventure is still in the early stages of planning. There isn’t a specific date set, I haven’t secured any sponsors or even have any clue HOW to do that. If anyone knows how best to get sponsors or may be interested in sponsoring me, hit me up!
I’m putting this out in to the world to bring good vibes and luck my way. Typically when I look forward to something it never happens but I hope this will be different.
Remember September is Craniofacial Acceptance Month, I aim to do a blog post every day this month and thanks to some really great suggestions I’m well on my way. If you have an idea for something you want me to write about, leave it in the comments!
TTYAT (talk to you all tomorrow)! ❤️
