Baltimore Couple Wins Trip Home to Milwaukee for Christmas

A Baltimore couple won a trip to their hometown of Milwaukee as part of a travel agency’s “CheapOair's Home Awaits” campaign, according to CheapOair.

Out of 2,000 entrants only three couples won a trip.

Laurie Smith entered the contest for her husband Joshua. She said her husband had not been home, to Milwaukee in eight years.

 “This is because he has been doing non-profit work, serving some of the most at-risk people who are living in poverty, in Baltimore. Every year, he was either hosting Christmas for people who would otherwise not get to celebrate, or he was not able to go home because his non-profit salary was just not enough to cover the trip. Two years ago we got married and we haven't been able to see his family since then. It would mean so much to him and to me, to be able to go home to be with his family this Christmas,” wrote Smith.
