Trip to Disneyworld USA 2011
In 2010 we were the recipient of a fantastic week in Disneyworld, Orlando, USA courtesy of the the Huapai-Kumeu Lions Club in Auckland. Air New Zealand offered us discounted airfares which were covered by the Mellowpuff Trust (www.mellowpufftrust.co.nz). We fundraised for the remainder of the trip and received the most fantastic support from the community. Money found its way to us in many ingenious ways. Donations were received following an article in the Midweek newspaper, people donated via Rory's website, letters arrived in our mail box and at Smokeylemon, staff came up to us at work, Inglewood Primary organised fundraising events and people visited our home. A total of $15,000 was gifted which enabled us to extend our stay and visit Kennedy Space Centre, Legoland, Downtown Disney, several wildlife reserves and enjoy an airboat ride. We were overwhelmed and deeply touched by people's generosity and also their stories and best wishes. I tried to record the names of all those who helped make the trip possible. We feel like you were with us on our adventure.
