So You guys know about my cousins 6 kids and how my mom has them now, I was wondering are there any type of programs that can help with getting them to DL? None of them have ever been and I know they would just love it, not to mention they could use the cheering up. I know the give a day get a day thing is over but do u guys know of anything similar? Or anyone I can talk to? Thanks all.

Haven't heard of anything but I'll definitely look into it - MsNick  55.7 #4558 8:22AM
Don't know but you could try asking DL. - NikkiMickey  1686.3 #99 8:23AM
Thanks MsNick. If anyone has any info please text me, I think these kids need a little Disney magic :) - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 9:28AM
Maybe ask their church? Or have all the family members pitch in some $ for the cost of tickets. - KissDclown  1089.1 #167 9:31AM
What KDc said! - toph  2418.2 #60 9:32AM

Maybe try the Make-A-Wish foundation? - thisredheadistaken  243.3 #1439 9:41AM
Church has donated a lot for them, including clothed and new beds. I know Disneyland isn't something they need, but I just think it would be so awesome for them right now.. I emailed Disney but I probably won't hear back for a while - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 9:45AM
Oh and they don't have any family, my cousins side of the family is very racist and since the kids are mixed, being half white half black, they don't have anything to do with them. Its so sad but thats why me or my moms side of the family doesnt talk to them. My mom is really all they have now :( - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 9:48AM
I'm so very very sorry Rickey. This breaks my heart...how can adults be so cruel to children - IHEARTSIMBA50  495.0 #431 9:52AM
That's really sad Rickey! It's heartbreaking to hear stories like that! I hope there is someone generous enough to donate tickets for the kids! - CaptainJill  42.2 #5112 9:55AM
Try setting up a donation/ pay pal page for donations, share it with their story via Twitter, Facebook, all those sites. You never know who will see it, and donate. It may take time, but worth a try. Email to news stations too. - Nicole  380.2 #590 9:58AM
That's a great idea Nicole! - CaptainJill  42.2 #5112 9:59AM
When are you planning to take them? I will buy 1 of the kids a 1 day hopper ticket. They have been through enough and they should have a magical day! Thank god they have you and your mom! - vegasbrat  420.4 #530 10:02AM
Wow!! @Vegasbrat, that is very sweet & generous of you! This is why I hang out in MW more cuz I see so many friendly people that one day I want to be able to call my friends! - CaptainJill  42.2 #5112 10:05AM
omg vegasbrat that is so sweet of you! let me see if i can get anything set up for them, maybe i can ask people to donate whatever they can like nicole was saying... maybe disney will even donate tickets? - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 10:07AM
Disney wont give you any tix. Ask a CM who can sign you in! - swingingwake  217.9 #1763 10:11AM
That's a great swingingwake! I'm sure there are CMs out there that are willing to do good deeds for your lil cousins! If there is a will...there is a way! Just gotta keep searching and don't give up! - CaptainJill  42.2 #5112 10:14AM
Just let me know we will work it out. If you get a paypal set up I will post on my fb page too. - vegasbrat  420.4 #530 10:14AM
I've had multiple CMs help me out. There are a million CMs that I'm sure will help you out :) - swingingwake  217.9 #1763 10:16AM
If there is a paypal account set up I'm sure my husband and I would love to donate some money towards essentials like food and drink. - DuffysJuju  628.4 #323 10:19AM
Rickey, if there is CMs thats willing to sign your cousins in...raise money for food/beverages/gifts cost! The kids need a souvenir or two from the magical day at DL! - CaptainJill  42.2 #5112 10:19AM
I can't donate much, but if you set up a Paypal account, post it here so I can contribute a little. Posting it here would be a great idea, considering MWers came together and raised $360 for pavers for Admin and family. You never know - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 10:20AM
I would donate. - vernswifevickie  400.5 #563 10:20AM
I'll donate what I can! - CaptainJill  42.2 #5112 10:23AM
aw thank you so much all, ive set up a donation button thru paypal but now im justtrying to figure out how to post it - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 10:33AM
I'm willing to donate what I can for the kids too. Just send us the link so we can post it :) - NightmareKaren  364.3 #629 10:40AM
i cant figure it out :( - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 10:48AM
I know it sounds crazy, and it's a long shot, but try the Ellen DeGeneres Show. They love to help families like yours. - CMsMom  446.7 #492 10:52AM
okay guys, i think i have successfully set up a donation page. if you go to facebook and search "Help these 6 kids get to Disneyland" the page should come up. you can donate there. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH! i hope i can raise enough money to take them! - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 11:44AM
I liked it, I'll donate on payday Thursday! - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 11:49AM
We would donate too. If you set up a paypal account txt me with the info. - Mrsblue  693.1 #285 11:53AM
I'm not sure if your mom and the kids are in the high desert as well, but if they are check out the "hdpheonixfoundation", they have done something like this in the past and may be able to help with fundraising. Good luck, they totally deserve some magic! - kerbear  212.7 #1841 2:35PM
Yes they are, thanks kerbear! Gonna check it out right now! - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 2:36PM
I just made a small donation hopefully you got it ok. I am praying for these sweet precious kids and your family. What a horrible thing they went through. God Bless! - mrssumr  70.4 #4147 3:32PM
Thank you so much! Yes I received it, anything helps :) - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 3:48PM
A couple of things. I am a police officer in northern California and can say these types of cases hit home with us. You may want to reach out to your poa (police officer's association) or SSS (deputy sherriff's association. We have done charity dinners, scholarship drives, and other fundraisers for numerous cases involving kids. Second, I was recently introduced to a website which I think would be awesome for you. It's www.giftwish.com. It is basically like an online gift registry where you could post what is needed. It links to your paypal account and people can forward donations toward specific goals and the site tracks progress. So you could make park hoppers one category with the total for all 6 kids. Then you could do a food, hotel, souvenir, and gas section and people could work to get you to each goal. The cool thing is the site tracks totals so it motivates people to get you to your goals. You can also post and tell your story, donors can leave personal messages and did I mention...... This is all free. I just met the site creator while working with my son's elementary school. Feel free to contact me for any info you need. Lastly, make sure to reach out to your local victim/witness program for counseling for the kids and family. Don't forget self care. Good luck to you. - unclebeezy  255.1 #1303 4:24PM
thank you SO MUCH unclebeezy, i am going to check that out right now! - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 4:33PM
unclebeezy i went to the website but i wasnt sure what to do, can you tell me how to get started? - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 4:38PM
Sorry autocorrect made it SSS. It should read DSA deputy sherriff association. Also porac is a police association that will often make donations to high profile crime victim cases involving kids. - unclebeezy  255.1 #1303 4:40PM
Rickey, I'm sorry just checked my email, the site is www.giftwisdom.com - unclebeezy  255.1 #1303 4:45PM
Rickey just sent you text hope you received it. Also get the local tv stations involved call their pr dept. - sewgirl  342.6 #697 4:49PM
unclebeezy can you email me? [email protected] - RickeyCalifornia  158.1 #2593 5:09PM
unclebeezy's post just reminded me of another site you can put this on that might get you some more paypal donations, wishuponahero.com, it's similar to the one he posted. I'm thinking the more exposure you get the better. Man, I really wish I was rich right now so I could help more! - kerbear  212.7 #1841 5:27PM
Just sent it through. - unclebeezy  255.1 #1303 6:29PM
