Let me tell you a little story about my best friend whom i've met 7 years ago. First time i met him i was on my 3rd year of University, i was a regular and he was on a break for two years. Before i met him my style of living was quite different than his, i use to smoke a lot, drink and party pretty much every weekend. And he was doing sports he played tennis and he was a really good player, also he was going to the gym living the healthy life. We started knowing each other better and better throughout our 3rd year and if it wasnt for him i would still be the same. During our 4th and final year we lived together for a while and it was this time that he helped me the most, i decided to quit my bad lifestyle and had a strong will and desire to be like him. We started going to the gym together, he knew everything there is to know about lifting weights and having to eat/drink proper meals/drinks. It was the best time of my life.
Now 7 years later i am the one living the healthy life and i am enjoying every second of it, he is the one i am most thankful for and will always be. On the other hand his life started going downhill since 2012, he couldnt finish his studies in time and he got sick during that year. First he got into depression, soon after he got other kinds of disorders such as anxiety, dizziness, sleep or insomnia. He started seeing all kind of doctors to help him out but with no results in the long run. During these past 4 years he stoped being active like he always use to be, having to drink all kind of medications made him stop not only being active in any sports but also his body started feeling pretty weak and the results were bad. He now suffers from tachycardia aswell.
I created this campaign to help out and pay him back atleast a little bit for all the good things he did for me, I made a thorough plan on how to do it, since i know that there are no gyms in his neighbourhood i decided to buy him some gym equipment. I know this will make him very happy and hopefully it will start a new chapter in his life. Also I am not doing this only to help him out and for the money, i want to show him that there are still good, kind people in this world who are willing to help out a stranger, and that kindness is still present in people.
