Hello everyone,

i am starting this fundraiser for my niece Shannon who has made a life altering decision to move to Fort McMurray, Alberta.

I've been here for a few months and wish i had come sooner as the opportunites are endless.   

Shannon has had a rough time throughout the past few years, starting with the unexpected death of her mother, my sister Josie.

Since then, life has thrown many obstacles in Shannon's way but she is strong and she has prevailed.  Unfortunately, BC is a tough province to make a living and make ends meet and this is one of the reasons Shannon is being courageous and starting a new life here in Fort McMurray for the sake of her kids and wanting a better life for them as well.  

But with this decision, i think she needs help getting here but too determined to do it on her own and won't ask for help!   Hence, this fundraiser.   

I hope to raise $1000 for Shannon for her to travel to Alberta and not have to worry about cost of gas or food or the what if's....

Even donations of $5 can add up if enough people did this and that's what I'm hoping for with this fundraiser.  Once Shannon gets here, i will take good care of her and you'll be able to follow her journey via facebook!  I'm sure some of you will even be tempted to come as well.  :-)

Thank you for reading this and let the journey begin!
