Devyn & I love Mark and Rebecca. They were my best friends and youth leaders in high school, Dev and I are so happy they're getting married...but devastated that we can't afford plane tickets to be there for the big day.

My name is Marissa and I live 3,341.6 km away from my home in Southern Ontario. I moved this far away from my family for my undergraduate and since moving this great distance I've met some of the most incredible people, fallen in love, and climbed some epic mountains (emotionally and literally).

So while you'll never hear me say I regret choosing to study in Edmonton, (since moving my life out here was one of the best things I have ever done)...there is a bitterness to the sweet life I'm enjoying now: Wedding invitations from long time friends back home.

Mark and Rebecca. Two people who I loved (and sometimes disliked) throughout high school were youth leaders and my best friends. They started dating during my senior year in high school and their wedding is this September!

Devyn and I have made the preparations needed to see my best friends exchange vows by rearranging our work and academic schedules. I want nothing more than to be in the same province, and same church, as my best friends on their wedding day. Devyn, who Mark and Rebecca had the chance to meet over reading week, has been invited to the wedding as well and is excited to support the couple on their big day.

As university students who struggle to pay for groceries, it is crushing that our finances are deciding whether we can attend this wedding.

If you are able to give even the smallest donation, you'll be contributing to a life long memory.
