Hello, my name is Rafael, I'm 29, I live in Brasilia, Brazil. I used to make a living working for the Entertainment market, as I would design temporary architecture such as stages, exhibit stands and promotional activations. Since Covid-19 pandemic started, I managed to keep my job based on working at some postponed events, but as the pandemic gets intensified in Brazil, with no good prospect of controlling it, all contracts were either suspended or terminated. Since I am not eligible for the Brazilian government's emergency allowance and I still have my monthly rent and basic needs expenses to pay, I was left with no choice but to appeal to crowdfunding.
On top of the pandemic moment, Bolsonaro's ignorance, selfishness and lack of a management plan is making my country suffer as never before. I hope Brazil recover soon from these two concurrent tragedies and I apologize the World for our country failing as a nation, failing to contribute positively to the international cooperation, to the Mankind, and to the Environment.
