Looking for opinions here. My mom just got this information back today- my grandfather as a USMC veteran is going to be honored in a ceremony. This is very important to my mom, but there is no way she and my father would have the funds to attend (travel, lodging, etc). She left her job to be my grandfather's caretaker prior to his death, and since that time has also become the one taking care of and handling so many different nursing home situations in the family with Alzheimer's etc. I'm wondering if this is the appropriate type of situation to start a go fund me or kickstarter? I would love to see my parents enjoy some actual leisure time for the first time in years in addition to attending something so meaningful. Should I start one? Thoughts? Experiences?
