Hello! My name is Andres Aavik and I’m a Freelance Web designer. I’m originally from Estonia but this year I finally decided to take action and fulfill my long lasting dream to travel to the Philippines, experience the local culture and also enjoy the warm climate. I don’t consider it as a full-on vacation because I’m working like everybody else, it’s just a bit more flexible.
The second night after I had arrived I had my wallet stolen after meeting a couple of friendly locals. Thankfully I didn’t have too much cash, but all my debit and credit cards were in there. From there on out I had to use very expensive money transfer options through my relatives back home. My work hasn’t been going too great either because I haven’t signed contracts with my clients and a couple of them owe me considerable sums that could pay for my trip back. The possibility of me receiving those payments in the near future are slim to none and thus I’ve turned to you guys as I can’t think of any other options to get back in time.
I’ve been here for 4 months already and now I’m really getting homesick. This is my first longer trip and I came here alone, I’m really starting to miss my family and friends. My brother is graduating high school at the end of June and I’m his only living relative who could make it to the event. Because of my situation right now where my clients probably won’t be paying me in the near future, I have nowhere else to look for help. I would really appreciate it if you guys could help me with the plane ticket home so I could make it to my brother’s graduation and see my family and friends.
If the collected money would exceed the costs of my trip back home, then it will go to charity for kids in Anda.
