Hello,

My name is Krisz. I live in Hungary. I work as a teacher in Budapest and I also have a great passion for my hobby, which is playing music. I have started this fundraiser to help me get closer to buying a NEW MANDOLIN.

Let me tell you my story.

Has it ever happened to you that you left an essential belonging of yours at home, but you only realized it when you had left and were on your way somewhere?

Well, that is what happened to me. I lost my instrument, a mandolin. I left it on a train heading to its last destination in Budapest, I had gotten off one stop earlier. The moment I realized it was missing, I rushed through the city while on the phone. talking to the Railway Company, trying to send someone to find it first, before...

But it was too late. It was only a mistake, a moment of carelessness and it was gone. It felt like I had left my arm or my leg. On top of that, my band was going to have its first-ever concerts abroad.

The search for the instrument was not over then and there. I talked to several people working at Budapest Déli Railway Station, from cleaning ladies to engine drivers, but they said they didn't see it. We checked it at the Lost & Found Department, but again without results. I even consulted the local police officer to help me get some insights into the security camera recordings from the Station...

I also launched a search campaign on Facebook, starting with some 'Lost & Found in Budapest' groups and sharing news with friends. That day I ended up joining dozens of new groups trying to reach the person who I thought might have found it. I had the faith that he/she must be an honest person who would try to reach out to me as well.

It's been more than two weeks since the accident. By now my post has been shared more than 400 times, a lot of (even not that close) friends posted about it and have been asking about the matter. I've kept on looking for the instrument on several online auction sites, Facebook groups, and I have contacted musical instrument stores to keep an eye on the mandolin.

I was so moved by this amount of will to help me on behalf of all these people that I really believed that we might reach the goal of finding the instrument. Unfortunately, I was wrong. Until now I have got no news of the wherebeing of it.

By now, my only option to replace the lost instrument seems to be to buy a new one. However, due to the current rise in the price of everything (which you might have experienced on a global scale), and also my monthly income as a teacher (which is among the lowest in Hungary), I find myself in a difficult situation.

The reason why I decided to launch this Fundraiser Campaign is that I had wanted to channel the wave of helping attitudes from everyone to have a positive outcome. A happy end to the story, if I may. :)

I know there are better and bigger causes to support out there. But, If you feel you can afford to help me feel complete on the stage again, I totally appreciate it.

Thank you for your attention and your help in advance!
