Hello Vuelo

We believe everyone has the right to spend time with their loved ones.

At least once or twice a year, most of us are able to spend time with our loved ones - reconnect, share, laugh with grandparents, siblings, children, aunts & uncles, cousins, parents, and good friends. During holidays, special occasions or in times of sickness and need, we have the resources to visit the people who are most important to us.

Unfortunately, for many low income families often living thousands of miles apart, its not so easy to see each other. 

When low income families are struggling to pay the rent and buy food, spending money on a plane ticket is simply an impossibility. Countless families spend too many years apart - unable to travel due to finances, which is often made more difficult by restrictive immigration policies.

Hello Vuelo uses crowdfunding to purchase flights to reunite low income families. We connect families & friends who want to give with families & friends who are in need of support. 

"Vuelo" means flight in Spanish and so our project - Hello Vuelo - means a flight to say hello to loved ones and reunite. All donations are tax-deductible.


 
Seeing our 90 year old maternal grandmother, Maria, was the highlight of our trip. We were always with her since both of our parents worked - she is our second mother. We were finally able to hug her tell her thank you for everything she has done for us.
