Hi, l'm Lystra, the primary caregiver for my mom who suffers from Alzheimers disease. On the 22nd of May I celebrated my 46th birthday and in commemoration of this event I'm seeking your assistance in raising $4,600.USD to purchase an e-bike and to go on a vacation.
Why support this campaign? Well; putting it in simple language, Since resigning in 2008, I have been caring for my mom and sometimes things get more than a bit stressful. When possible I try to get away from the situation to destress myself, by riding my bicycle. Sometimes I end up far from home and by the time l make it back home, I'm really tired. An E-bike would be a great asset to me at times like these, seeing that I could ride-out the stress and then just use the power to get back home quickly and most importantly revived and refreshed to continue caring for my mom. Of late, I have been getting impatient and irritated for the slightest things and little things that never bothered me are beginning to really get to me. At times I am scared at my own reaction to things, it's like I'm falling apart. The last time I got a vacation was over three years ago and honestly speaking I'm drained physically, mentally, emotionally and otherwise. I really need a vacation, but honestly, I can't afford one. There are days I feel like I'll go crazy or worse.
As for which e-bike I'll buy or where and how long I'll go on vacation, it's hard to tell right now as that would depend on how much funds I raise. The Peak Magnum for $1,999.USD plus shipping and the X-Treme Rubicon for $1,199.USD plus shipping aren't too bad although what I really want is the Luna Ludicrous for $3,350.USD plus shipping seeing that it's made of quality materials, reducing the chances of something being broken and me having a useless bike. In Trinidad and Tobago where I'm form there's no e-bike shop for me to take it to so quality comes above price for me, but that depends upon YOUR SUPPORT.
Those who know me, know that I don't ask for help for myself and despite the fact that this seems to be about me, it really isn't, it's about my mom (Jean Marcelle, affectionately called Henry or Miss Thought For The Day) and being able to give her the best possible care that I can.
I know that there are lots of request for assistance and mines may not be as urgent as the others therefore you may not want to help and that's understandable, its with this in mind I make the following two simple requests :-
1, Donate $1 to help me.
2, Share my request with all you know.
Thanks for your time in reading and considering my request.
Blessings to you and yours always.
So what's in it for you??? Well besides the great feeling of satisfaction knowing that you have contributed to a worthy cause, you would have to checkout the rewards section to see if and what you qualify to get. And please don't forget to follow my campaign, this way every update I post will be automatically emailed to you keeping you informed, included and up-to-date.
Any extra funds will go towards vegetable farming.
