Dear people, dear donaters,
We are not wishing for a lot. We just want to surprise our dearest father. He has been unemployed for 5 years now. Sitting at home all day, every day is starting to kick in. He still is the caring father, and loving husband like he has always been. But we can see that the unemployment is not doing any good for him, in any way. He is creative, handy, and always willing to work. After sitting at home for five years, trying everything to get a job, he is losing his hope, losing his sparkling eyes. We see him suffer. Suffer in silent, because to us he always acts as the positive, ‘doing-great’-dad he wants to be and truly is.
As said, we are not hoping for a lot. We just want him to get back at the jobsite. Having him to set his alarm clock to get out of bed for work, not setting his alarm clock to wake his daughter so she will be in school on time. He desperately needs a new goal in his life.
We know what he wants to do, what his goal is. Before he became unemployed he had always worked in construction. Now he wants to start a business for himself. This is what he wants to do, and is (sadly enough) his only option since he is considered to old at the job market (he is only 52). His dream is to have a business where companies can hire him for construction work.
To get him back out there, not a lot is needed, but obviously, after five years not having a job the money reserve has been dried out. What causes him not to be able to start this business himself. We want to surprise him with the tools and protection equipment he needs to do the job and a car to get to the jobsite. That is really all we need to make the dream come true.
Now all we need to do is helping him to realize his goal, giving him back the sparkles in his eyes and the pride as a man.
Please, are you willing to help realize this? We could not be more grateful!
