👋 Hi to you!
My name is Sarah, and I am the proud daughter of two extraordinary people. 😊
Today I came here to ask for a little help. So please, allow me to take a bit of your time to try to explain why I need it...
I thought a lot about starting a funding campaign before today. The thoughts of: "your reason it's not good enough, there are a lot of other people who deserves better" always crossed my mind and demotivated me, so I would just put it off and think that if I saved well I could deal with it without asking for any kind of help, but I could not - and it's good to admit when yourself alone is not enough to achieve your dreams - since I don't have a job with stable payments for a considerable amount of time, just like millions around the globe.
So I have to believe that union is power, and that when kind people gather something amazing can happen for the ones I care the most!
I have an amazing father and a wonderful mom, that were able to give me a lot through my childhood while they were working, but now that they are retired and need the most, they can't do the things that they want, because of rent, bills, medicine. It's a lot of expenditure for the small amount that they receive, so their wants just keep being a "wanting"...
So I wanted to give them what they most want to, but that they just push it aside because of not being able to afford:
A SMILE! 😁😁
A dental treatment that they want so much, so they can finally stop felling embarrassed whenever they go to chat with someone, and specially when they want to laugh. And also some aid for their financial problems.
A small bit of these two complete strangers I am hooking you to help....
My father has 77 years and about 8 years ago he had a stroke that unfortunately left him with a few after-effects, but having he by my side is all that matters to me. He is shy but also a lot proud, the type that will only ask for help as a last resource, but when he does..... it's so cute that I can't help but end up teasing him a lit bit, before saying "yes"!
My loving mother, it's exactly his opposite. She is that person that will always talk to no matter where she is and how you look like. If you are in a bus stop, she will talk to you and you won't leave without sharing a little of your life with her and getting some amazing life advises. She says that chatting is the best exercise there is to your mind, it relaxes and helps to take our minds of the problems, and also is nice to have a new chat buddy! She is the strong and fearless person that went through all my father accident without shed a tear while in front of me, at the time I was too young to understand and to help her the way she needed.
But those two have not been so cheerful as before. The last time my dad went to a doctor consult he told me he was so ashamed of speak to her. And my mom said that the now at least the face mask covers her mouth so no one can see how it is.
That broke my heart so hard for not being able to give them not even 5% of all the thing they gave me. 💔💔💔
Now, after this looong text that I know it took you a while to read - and I hope you read it all - I humbly ask you for your help so I can turn that "wanting" into a possibility and even to something concrete.
For now, I will use my own smile as the campaign image, until I can share my parents's.
Thank you for your time, dear friend of mine!
