I would like to take this opportunity to address you on behalf of a family and work team. I am former director of a small family business founded since 1998. Our business was gastronomy.
Since we were forced to close the doors of our business due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it was an incredible disaster. we struggled to keep our staff as they were unable to generate income. and we did it thanks to the company's reserves and some government aid, but after 3 months with its subsequent reopening, and we were surprised to continue to have more losses that were not projected for the coming months, despite our efforts I have invested our savings, to keep our doors open during the summer months we were not achieving even half of the sales necessary to pay our bills, employees and to keep our small business in operation. Coming to the hard experience of closing our doors for good. Since our reserve box reached its bottom. A very unpleasant experience that we do not wish on anyone. Our life has completely turned around, thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic we saw how many years of work, efforts, investment of capital and finally investment of our savings with the hope that the source of support for our family would normalize were left behind of those doors.
After falling two meters from the ceiling, tearing our heads off, and seeing that our profession, gastronomy now with the pandemic and the restrictions that are imposed on restaurants and bars as a result of it, is destroying small establishments and showing a indecisive future for these.
Despite all these causes, we have not completely let ourselves down, since in the period of confinement in the months of March and April, my wife and I were very moved to see the suffering of the victims all over the world and its great number that every day went and goes until these moments increasing, having these to die in solitude without being surrounded by their loved ones, and on the other hand their relatives with the frustration and great pain of not being able to be by their side in his last moments to give them one last goodbye and the funeral they deserved.
We decided to do something at that time to give comfort and support to the families of the victims of the coronavirus. and for the deceased victims who, although they were without their loved ones in their last moments, we will give them the honor and the certainty that their memories will be present forever in a virtual memorial monument and that they will be remembered by us and new generations.
This is how our vision came out that it was (and still is) the Wallforever website, which in its first version was the international virtual monument for deceased victims of the Covid-19 pandemic, a completely free service. We hoped to support with our grain of sand in those moments of pain for the whole world.
However, we never expected that this virus, without the need to infect or infect us, would make us one of its victims, not physically but financially, since we have been left without our job and with many obligations to fulfill. Thanks to this touch that covid-19 gave us, we adopted the idea of incorporating virtual holy spaces into wallforever as a way to sustain the web and work for us, plus a blog of help and psychological support for people who are going through it. mourning the loss of a loved one. the blog is in creation as we are looking for professionals and gathering a community of collaborators willing to offer their help in this wallforever space for the community.
We are ashamed, since our clients are people who may be going through a moment of pain and we have to charge for the virtuous holy space. but our work for each of the V.H.S. We do it manually and personalized, we are not and we do not want to be, a web of filling programming from a template, and then charging for this. we put in each V.H.S. our feelings and we want our users to really have a feeling for what they are doing for their deceased loved one.
At wallforever we want to promote and defend faith in humanity regardless of their religious beliefs or principles, because with a virtual holy space our users can create their Personalized Virtual Altar where they can celebrate religious rites, such as offerings, light candles, prayers to their God or gods. which will be available on the mobile phone, tablet or notebook, at any time and in any place.
Through all of our efforts, we have managed to assemble and form a small team interested in working for wallforever, and in all its future projections and services. We have also received so much love and it is great to know that so many people are supporting us in this project. But after several months of work we have not managed to make the existence of the virtual commemorative monument be noticed and even less our presence in the network, due to the lack of capital we are stagnant, because wallforever needs a whole launch campaign, as well as a professional in web programming, social media marketing, professional photography, and remunerating the work of team members to keep us united and that we can dedicate our time 100% to wallforever.
Many times, we asked ourselves how the project can be supported, and when browsing the internet, we found GoFundMe, and we realized that its users have a great heart to help those who need it. now we want to take this step here before you, before it is too late, and not let our intentions, work, investment and a new way of working for our family, stay deep in the internet. As the person in charge of a family and a team, I would like to leave no stone unturned and I am willing to give my all and do everything possible to avoid the dark future that awaits us if we do not find a sustainable way out for wallforever.org.
This is why we are here before you, because we want to work and we need your help, support. With your collaboration you will be supporting the following causes.
- Demonstrating your benevolence for the victims who died of the pandemic and offering a little support to their families, with the existence of the memorial for the victims of the pandemic for life.
- To the creation of a form of work for a family affected by the pandemic.
- The opportunity to maintain the union with a team willing to work very hard to provide support and collaborate with services for the community of wallforever users, which will be open and available to anyone anywhere in the world who needs or seeks support within of this community.
- You are contributing to my wife's mother, who is 91 years old. Which is suffering from Parkinson and Alzheimer's that has led to dementia and the total loss of her autonomy. My dear mother-in-law has lived with us for 2 years, because we did not have the heart to admit her to a specialized center for patients with this disease. Thanks to this she is still with us and alive. I do not want to go into the details of the care that a person with Alzheimer's needs, but people who know about this disease or have had a patient with this disease, know all the care that must be taken with the patient, which is 7/24 throughout the year. And thanks to your contribution we will be able to work from home and in this way be able to continue with her guardianship and all her care while God gives her the opportunity to be by our side and at home.
- The opportunity for Wallforever to have a professional website and register as an organization.
We look forward to every donation, no matter how small, it all helps. And we do not simply want them to give us the money, we would like to exchange your contribution for a virtual holy space for life in Wallforever.org, which with much love and gratitude we will create and design for you, I say we will create because we are not an automated website, the work and design are done manually.
Each collaborator, regardless of the amount of their donation, will receive as a thank you a virtual space for life of their choice for a loved one who has passed away.
To agree on the details for your Virtual Holy Space, send the donation confirmation to [email protected] and with all our gratitude from our hearts we will get to work on the V.H.S. for your loved one
In the event that a donation is not available to you, it would be of great use to us and we sincerely appreciate it if you follow us on social networks and share us with your contacts, so that the world knows us and we can achieve all our purposes.
