My name's David Wallace. I've known Keith Gregory Russell and his wife, Tomoko, for a long time. They've always been there for our community, helping anyone in need. Today, I share their story with a heavy heart. It's about resilience in tough times and why we need to support them.

Keith and Tomoko have spent their lives helping others. Keith teaches English, and Tomoko is a dedicated head nurse. But in 2003, Tomoko had a serious brain hemorrhage. It left her struggling with her health and inability to work.

During this tough time, they trusted a caregiver to run Keith's English Language School. Sadly, this person abused their trust. She stole money from the school and their savings, leaving them with no money and huge debts of over $50,000. She even manipulated them into taking out loans they couldn't handle. Keith now suffers from PTSD because of her actions.

Despite all this, Keith and Tomoko never stopped helping others. But their financial situation got worse. They couldn't afford Tomoko's medical needs or make their home accessible for her.

But there's hope. We can help them. Our goal is simple: raise $50,000 to ease their financial burden. With your help, we can pay off their debts, make their home accessible, and support Keith in starting a nonprofit to protect vulnerable adults from financial abuse.

Even if you can't donate, spreading their story can make a big difference. Let's come together as a community to show Keith and Tomoko they're not alone. This is our chance to repay their kindness and support them in their time of need.


Please join me in spreading the word and rallying support for Keith and Tomoko. Together, we can help them regain stability and respect. Thank you!
