Thank you for taking your time and be here to see my post.
My name is Eduardo and I live in Brazil.
I work fixing computers and notebooks (yeah, TI guy) but that's not enough to do much, pretty much it's to pay the bills.
Nowadays people use the internet to fix almost any kind of problem, it's getting difficult to me.
My plans with the donations are: to buy a new computer and to build a small tech laboratory with all the equipments needed to start fixing motherboards, gpus and cellphones.
I have some knowlegde on how to do this but I don't have the tools to do it.
Almost all equipments are very expansive and I don't have a minimal chance of buying them. This is the situation where you dream with something bigger but you can't do anything about it. My family can't help and my (very) limited number of friend can't help either.
I'll not ask for a loan, because, I really want to try this new business I do, but if, for some reason, this doesn't work, at least I can sell the equipments and use the money to try something else.
Basicaly the donation will be used not only to give me happiness (that I don't have for a long time) but will be used to try a new carrer.
I'm a self-taught guy, I know how to fix computers, notebooks, tablets. I have some knowlegde in electronics and I'm very interested in 3D animations, 3D modeling, programming and how to create games and to play games.
With the computer I have, I definitely can't do almost nothing. I'm thinking about with this new computer I can even try to become a youtuber (-maybe-).
I'm aware that the amount that I'm asking is way high but I have some explanations for that:
- This site takes a 12% of each donation. (Because of the eWallet).
- Paypal takes another % to transfer the donation to a bank.
- I'm not sure, but Paypal may take a % of each received donation too.
- The bank will take another % of each transaction that I'm gonna make to buy the items.
- And I live in Brazil, EVERYTHING here costs almost 3x, 4x of the price that you used to see. If "something" in your country costs, say, 5 dollars, the same "something" here in my country will cost 15+ dollars (minimum).
Please remember, I'm asking for only a dollar in donation, it may take a while to reach the amount I'm asking, but knowing that people are helping me even with a dollar is already an action to warm my heart.
But if you are just passing by and cannot donate can you please share this link with someone that you know that can donate ? Thank you.
Thank you very much (with all my heart) for at least been here to read my request. And in advance I wish you and your family an awsome Christmas.
