Laurie Frinnie has five children. She had recently lost her job and her husband just 24 months before that to brain cancer. One of the main sources of the family’s income came from Laurie’s 19-year-old son, Austin, a US army infantry solider, stationed in Georgia, who had taken over from his father and was sending home every paycheck.

Heartbroken and struggling, all Laurie wanted was to have her son Austin home for Christmas. Unable to afford the flight, however, Laurie who considered selling all of her valuables, set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for the ticket.

Jennifer Richardson saw the post and decided to help.
