Before I start with this topic I really please you to read it to the ende before you write it off as stupid talking.
This is actually a topic that really hurts to write about:
I'm a 22 years young guy grown up in the western area of germany in a small town near cologne. I had a good life to be honest. I have a lovely family, great friends, had excess to good education and nothing to worry about my whole life. I finished german high school 2 years ago and started to plan my career. I always wanted to become a pilot... and no this is not what this funding is about... sadly. After a few months I reached my aim and started my pilot training at a school abroad. So far so good but here comes the part that hurts...
After turning 18 I started to live very careless. Even though my family has always been able to live in a good manner we weren't rich at all. So instead of asking my parents for money I had the great idea to go for a banks loan... and then it started. I used the money to pay for my life whilst visiting university in the first year after school. As you can assume I didn't finish because I used my one time only chance to get to the job I have always wanted to do. Well the good thing about it: I was able to borrorw the money for the training itself from school first so nothing to worry about by now. You might think at least. A lot of expedentirues were coming up suddenly where I had no idea to get the money from. With this kind of vocational traing you are not able to either work propertly, lend money from a bank isn't an option either and during training you won't get even one euro.
So what did I do? I applied for about 10 creditcards with a limt of about 2000 euro each... the only way I could think of how to get out of the problems hoping I would pass my trainig before getting in more trouble... well I was wrong. By now I have growing debts increasing by ~15 euros every day. Doensn't sound to bad but by now I am at a total status of -25000 euros, a "small" credit from my parents with 10000 euros, the older debts at the bank with almost 10000 euros and no idea how I'll pay my rent the next months and don't let me start about food, books or even smaller things like visiting my familiy in my hoemtown. The only good thing I can deal with is that my education is finally going to pay off in in less that 1 year. But 1 year without any money but debts higher than they should be for a 22 year old can be a tuff time.
So here I am, want to get into some more details about what I'm planning to do. To be honest yes this money I am asking for will be to eventually fulfill my training and my life until I will finally earn my own money. But I really don't think it's fair: I wouldn't say that my problems are minor because I indeed feel very suppressed by now (can I say it like that?). I don't think it's fair though because if we are honest a lot of that can be said to be my fault. So what I want to do is: After ending my schooling, fully estabished in my Job what will be happening in 2022 at latest as what my contract says, I will take money from my salary every single month to pay back what I got... but not to you (sorry ;) I will use it to support children who have dreams on their own. I want to support them that children with less opportunities less chances in education get what they need to fullfill what they are aiming for. And I really don't want to do this by donating to some charity or sth like that but I will do everything I can to start an own campagne standing behind it with my character and all the power I can apply. This aren't just empty words to make you donate now but if this funding will reach the designated value, I will start with this plan immediatly, planning and preparing and you WILL be a part of that. I really swear on my soul that I'will keep what I promise. And I won't disappoint you nor anyone else!
I really hope you guys can help! And thank you for being part of this support to me and being part of this foundation!
