Hey guys, I've been thinking that my loyal and faithful domestic helper, Gaudie, who's from the Philippines, needs a new mobile phone.
Gaudie is my family's domestic helper, and she's been with us for 20 years and taken care of me since the day I was born. My family pays her about SGD 400 per month, which is about USD 320. All this money is sent back to her family in the Philippines. Her salary is not enough for her to invest in a good smartphone for the best communication to her family whom she misses everyday, and this is why I feel I should help her. In the past, she has saved money to purchase a small laptop and sent it back to her family. However, that really set her back financially.
My parents have been letting her have my family's hand-me-down mobile phones. I'd like to get Gaudie a brand new iPhone 5C. She would really love to use it to communicate with her family and friends back in the Philippines efficiently, as she only gets to visit them once a year. Having this phone would surely be a better way for her to do so.
An iPhone 5C from the Apple Store costs SGD848 for the 16GB model, which is approximately USD680.
As a college student, I don't have the financial ability to get a new phone for her, and that's why I'm turning to you. Please support me in knowing that you can help make someone feel more valued just by receiving something brand new.
