Hello friends and family! I am John Amos and I'm aspiring to become a streamer to pursue my passion for gaming. As a Filipino, playing video games is not really a thing especially during the time I was playing in computer shops in my local town (roughly 16 years ago, I was 8 years old then). I would always get into trouble with my parents because they believe that playing too much video games would result into nothing in the future but when you look at it today, the complete opposite just happened. Esports and all the twitch live streaming is actually doing pretty good; so good that it has given people the chance to continue their passion for gaming and make a living out of it.
My problem is my internet provider; it has very slow upload speeds and the minimum requirement for streaming is at least 4Mbps and I am rarely getting 1Mbps on mine right now. I'd love to transfer to a better ISP but there is a hiccup along the way and it is about my contract with the current ISP.
Ending the contract early (I still have 18 months on mine) will result in a termination fee and it is quite a hefty price for me right now and I need to start streaming as soon as possible because I just got an offer for sponsorship from a tech company and they promise to support my stream by providing me with the necessary equipment for live-streaming but if I can't fix my internet on time, they will be forced to give my slot to another gaming video creator. This is why I am turning to you guys for help; any amount that you can donate will be a huge help on my end and I will be forever grateful. To support my family by doing what I love is what I dream of doing and this is my first leap of faith. A helpful nudge for John would mean a lot!
