My name is Emmanuel Gonot, a writer and video editor from the Philippines. I’m seeking your help to be reunited with my children.
Early last year, my marriage ended acrimoniously and since then, my kids have been living in two homes, transferring back and forth from my rented house to their mother’s in a suburb in Manila. This arrangement had gone on for almost a year but living in our old apartment (we lived there for 20 plus years) took a toll on my own productivity.
I was unable to do much of anything by way of regular employment, I felt I was trapped in that particular environment that was too stifling and paralyzing.
Last December, I decided to start over and change my environment to take back control of my life. I left Manila to relocate to my hometown in the province. In the meantime, I was doing odd online jobs and a small contractual job (web development) to support myself and send money to my children whenever I could.
It seems that the amounts I was sending them for food was just not enough and the situation have deteriorated quite sharply at their mother’s household since I’ve left Manila. Things came to a head this week when my children called me desperately asking me to return to Manila and bring them back home to the province.
My problem is, at the moment, I’m in between jobs and have very limited funds. I work on a contractual basis for a nonprofit but the job is limited in scope (website maintenance and video production) and it is almost completed with 90 percent of the revenue already collected and spent. I’m talking to several prospective employers but so far, no firm employment agreement has been reached.
I need about $600 to pay for the fare to fetch my kids from Manila and get us all settled here in the province to start anew.
I’m positive I can get back up on my feet with the changed environment and the support system my family can extend to my kids. I am hopeful that my kids, esp. the two younger boys who were most affected by the break-up can cope better and live normal lives once they’re here with me in the province.
Videos & Articles
I’m trained and experienced (10 years) as a web content writer and video editor. I would like very much to be able to work in exchange for any assistance you can extend to me and my boys, at this time. If you need blog or website articles and ecommerce videos (or other types of videos) – written or produced, please let me know. I will gladly create high quality content and edit your videos for your store or website if you need those types of services.
Here are some samples of articles I’ve previously written:
I can create unique and well-researched 500-word articles on any topic although as a web marketer, I’m quite comfortable and inefficient writing about marketing and personal development topics and ecommerce product descriptions.
Here’s a demo video I created for a client in the past:
I can do 59-second ecommerce video ads for any product to be shown on Facebook or Instagram. I can also edit and add graphics to lengthier explainer videos, lectures, list videos, etc.
Please contact me if I can help you with any of these services.
Please Help Me Get Back On My Feet
As a professional who value my independence, I’m deeply humiliated asking for help this way but I’m desperate to get this matter resolved as soon as possible.Rather than wait until “something comes up,” I’ve decided to be proactive and take action to solve this problem now and move on to better days for myself and my children. Life is too short, after all.
I’m asking for your help to raise $600 to be reunited with my kids and to start a new life with them in a less stressful and happier environment here in the province. I am humbled and infinitely grateful for any assistance you can extend. Thank you very much for your time and kindness.
