Hello everyone! I'm starting a Fundraising charity to help someone in need, someone who unfortunately has been facing hard times, forcing him to stop studying. I don't know what are the chances of you knowing him, so I'll present him to you.
His name is Guillermo (Memo) Puga, a 21-year-old hard-working boy from Guanajuato, México, who has unfortunately fallen hard times. His desire to study on a University has been overshadowed by his economic situation.
3 years ago he was accepted at the UDL (University of León). He was supposed to start studying communication, something he really loves and he's really good at, but his family had financial struggles and couldn't afford have all their children in school, so he decided to stop studying, get a job, and give his two younger sisters the opportunity to have an education.
Last year he lost his job for a few months, he was trying to find another job, but as time passed by he needed the money to eat, so unfortunately he took a loan that generated high interests.
Now day after day he works hard to pay for it and support himself just to keep his family from spending on him, but his monthly earnings are not enough. He has to pay for his debt, he helps his mother pay off another loan she took a couple of years ago, and he still needs to pay for his own living expenses. It's so much, and he earns so little, up to a point where it leaves him days, and sometimes weeks without money to eat. It’s so frustrating for him that it has made him consider demeaning alternatives for his body to earn money just to eat (Prostitution), which I do not wish upon anyone.
He comes from a humble family, a family that's been working hard to help their kids become better people. They don't have much money, they can't afford much. One day he told me he has never had a birthday party neither presents, except for one time when he was 6 years old, his mother made her best effort to give him one birthday party. That's one of the most precious memories that he has and treasures because he knew his mother had no money, yet she did all she could for his child. That's why he treasures each gift he receives.
He's one of the kindest, warm hearted persons anyone could ever meet, he would do anything and would give anything to help anyone.
That's why I would love from us to give him this August 18th his first birthday present.
I’m asking you to open your heart, and help a young boy come back to life and fulfill his dream to be able to study. We would love to see him go back to school this September. Any donation, any kind of help is worth more than what you believe. Everyone deserves to receive help during tough times.
I hope we can help him achieve his dream of being able to study once again this September
