My name is Callum Buckley, I am 19 years old. Sadly I am in desperate need for a new computer as my current one is on its last breathe and has been with me for 6 years. I cant get a new laptop because my dad has been in great difficulty for the past 6 years and is still ongoing. At the moment he is in a new job earning below minimum wage and it had created a lot of debt and is struggling making ends meet. Another reason is there is no possibility of me going university in September as I was meant to go the previous year but due to the money issues I was delaying it a year later. So I wanted to do something in the time previous so I'm currently doing an unpaid internship as the UAE don't allow underage (below 21) to earn an income. Now September is almost approaching and preparing for university does not seem likely now at all due to nothing improving with the financial situation. I want to start and think of education alternatives to university at least for the time being such as online courses as they are cheaper.
With a laptop I could not only expand my knowledge but earn some cash online one way or another. I have found online course websites such as Coursera, edX, ALISON. Websites such as these will give me a better opportunity in the future.
Since I can’t elaborate on the specifics of the financial situation, money for the cash is all I ask for although there are other things I need but a laptop is the bare necessity I could ask for. I would be greatly thankful and can bless you. The fact that I have to reach out on this was a bold move as I wouldn’t want to do this. However, there has been no b’day or Christmas gift and no possible way of getting any item to help me.
Since my current laptop is broken, I am using my phone to type this up as my laptop can't get fixed because of how old it is and also because of no finances.
The reason I need that amount of cash is cause I want a laptop that can be with me for a decent number of years and not to bail on me. I can potentially try and earn some money through YouTube.
