I am currently working at home online. A few months ago I tagged my bestfriend along to work with me. Unfortunately, he got fired from the job and now is unemployed. Both of us has no college degrees but we still try to make it work with our lives.
Compared to me, my bestfriend's life is in deep right now, his mom passed away, and his grandmother too. They are a sibling of 3 and he sacrificed his 4 year college studies for his 2 younger sisters to finish up highschool. His father is working in an eatery here in Bulacan. Luckily enough, he managed to finish up a tesda course (building wiring) and a two year HRS course. Sometimes he gets work but only when he is called (short jobs that last only for a day or two). It's not enough for their day to day lives and I want to help my bestfriend out.
They say that we need not to give man a fish to eat but rather to teach a man how to fish. That is why I am knocking in your kind hearts to help me out with this fundraiser.
Because he stays at home, he accumulated a lot of experience in terms of cooking. He always makes the best snacks when he visits me at home. I want to help him out by giving him a small burger stand that certainly will help him and his family out. They live in a place with heavy foot traffic and I believe a burger stand business will really make it work.
I want to surprise him by giving him out this business before his birthday which is on January 1st. I really do hope you guys can help my friend out because I cannot shoulder the entire funding alone.
The funds will cover all business aspects including but not limited to:
- Emergency Fund
- Security Deposits
- Marketing Budget
- Misc. and Unforseen Costs
I will also contribute 10,000 pesos (around 218 USD) for my friend's benefit. I calculated the entire fund to cover the operational costs for at least 3 years. If this fundraiser succeeds, I pledge that I will pay it forward to those who also needs this kind of help and support by donating to a similar fundraiser whenever I am capable.
