I am an American man whom life has tossed more than a few curve balls but I persevere. I was out of the country for many years. I have recently returned to rebuild my life in the US.
I am hoping to raise money to go to be with my girlfriend and begin the visa process to be married.
Your generous donation would allow me to fly to her country and pay the visa fees and application process. Next it would provide for a return back and cover much of the same fees here in the US. If the visa is awarded I would then fly back to her country, get married and bring her home for us to start a new life together.
Her and I have been "dating" (long-distance) for nearly two years. My having to rebuild my life left me taking a job making $10 per hour. I am grateful to have the job but it would take years to save up enough to make all this happen. She lives in Manila and makes about $1.00 per hour. Already the time and distance is beginning to weigh heavily on our relationship. If I am unable to go to her and start the process within a year, I fear she may give up. I love her so.
Were I able to reach my goal it would fundamentally change every part of our lives and make us a family. The pure happiness it would bring is beyond my ability to describe or measure.
I could just say I would be thankful but that is not the man I am. Once we are together I would make it my life's mission to pay it forward. Every cent. We each have times in our lives when we cannot solve a problem because we lack money. I would save money and seek those in need and provide all I can to help. Isn't that what everyone would do?
