Hello! My name is Yonatan. I am 13 year old small gamer who doesn't have enough money to buy myself a computer so I use my dad's 2012 MacBook pro (which was actually pretty good). I really... Ruined it. First the trackpad randomly stopped working properly. Then, I was stupid enough to lean my elbow on the trackpad without realizing it. And... It cracked. This was hard to tell my dad, but I did. The next thing that happened was the left arrow key. It started popping off, and I kept popping it back in a couple times and it stayed there for a couple of minutes, then it fell off again. I didn't realize this yet though, until it fell off and I tried to pop it back in. It wouldn't get back in. I did some research and realized that what broke is a tiny clip on the inside of the key. Then the right one started falling off too. This was even harder to tell my dad. He didn't get mad at me one bit though, and he kept letting me play on his computer. I think he made a big mistake because then, I dropped it (what the hell is wrong with me ) on the floor and... The screen... Shattered. The trackpad cracked even more. And the battery said 'Replace now'. the whole computer is really ugly now and everything is broken. Yes it does kind of work, but I feel extremely bad, especially because he wasn't mad at me even after that. I know I need to do something. But just fixing it wasn't enough. I decided, that for his birthday, I will buy him a new MacBook pro for $1999 and never touch it. But the problem is, that I'm just a 13 year old and earning money is slow for me. I've gotten 100$ already, but it was 3 months. I know I will not make it to 2000$ on my own in time for his birthday, January 28th. This is where I need help from awesome people, and I know that there are a ton of very kind people. Of course I will keep trying to earn money as fast as I can to reach the goal. And when I'll have enough money, I will order the new MacBook and film a video of giving it to my dad. I will upload it to my YouTube channel that I created specifically for this at:
Just want to say thank you very much for this... I hope I'll make it to $2000 until his birthday on January 28th and get him shocked! I really appreciate you reading and it would mean the world to me if I could actually get to that day where I give my dad the his new Macbook!
