Hello Everyone,

As you may or may not have known, Pete's grandfather has been suffering from various illnesses for the past year. Pete has confided in me, at more than one occasion, that he has not seen his grandfather for quite some time now. He is afraid that if anything would ever happen to the him, he would be extremely upset that he did not get to sit down with him one last time and perhaps listen to the wisdom that he has to offer.

My grandmother died of leukemia and bone cancer. My grandfather died of cancer in his trachea. I did not get to see either of them when they passed away. I am not an overly emotional person, but it remains a hole in my heart that all that's left of them is a silver necklace and a passport sized photo. I do not want the same to happen to Peter.

What's in it for you? Absolutely positively nothing. The beautiful thing about altruism is that it provides you with an opportunity to make the world a slightly more loving place without the potential of a return on your investment. You won't get accolades or high fives, you will do this from the goodness of your heart. The only thing you might get is perhaps a couple of pictures of the Slovenian countryside which I hear is a sight to see.

Funding Details

The $1500 will simply cover airfare from Kelowna to Slovenia (Airfare will vary but at least we can get him up in the air). The other 500$ (I will provide this value) is to give him some leeway if ever the airfare gets more expensive or he needs some extra pocket money. I will personallly give him a cheque for $1500 and will take a picture and perhaps upload it on Facebook with privacy settings that enable only contributers to see it.

Remember, anything from $1 (peanuts, no really he can buy peanuts on the plane) to $X is appreciated.

Other ways to contribute

If you know of his close friends back in Ontario, or you know of anyone who I might not be able to reach, please please contact them and let them know about this. With the $500 that I will put in, I foresee no real reason that we need to expand well beyond the immediate social circle, but I guess the more the merrier. 

Let it be known that this is my first ever crowd funded campaign online. My experience in the past has been with raising money for charity and overall I have raised over $8000 for the different charity funds. This is different but I will try to answer all your questions and be as transparent as...who's a superhero that's really transparent? You get the point.

This will indeed provide Pete with a little more reassurance that humanity is not as he percieves it to be.

Thank you very much.
