Filipino boy Jerry is only 8 and the bravest kid I know. His mother died tragically at Christmas time when he was only four years old and his father died in August this year. Jerry has been living with me for over a year now, but I am currently in Australia working and selling stuff to get back to him in the Philippines.
You can help me adopt Jerry and bring him to Australia by doing one or all of these:-
Thank you so much for your interest in our story, I’m working so hard everyday to earn and raise enough money to get back to Jerry in the Philippines. It would be so wonderful to spend Christmas together. We are so grateful to everyone who has contributed to our campaign.

Melinda, I read your post and think: it’s possible! Lot of time I thought to do something like you did. The difference is that I didn’t. How can we help you to adopt Jerry and bring him to Australia? I’m in Argentina.
Wow, Argentina. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and check out our story.
I’m currently crowdfunding so I can stay with Jerry in the Philippines for a whole year (uninterrupted stay) and begin the adoption process. During this time I am also actively building again my online marketing and copywriting business so I can support Jerry and I into our future.
Below is the campaign website with the not-for-profit crowdfunding platform Chuffed.org.
To help you could do any or all of these things below:-
1. Go to the campaign site and if it resonates, please make a donation
2. Share the campaign across your social media channels
3. Tell your family and friends about what I am doing
4. Recommend the story to any business or sponsors
