Hi - I hate asking for money, but I urgently need help, and have run out of options. My best friend and partner went overseas last June to work with a concert venue. After the crew left, he stayed behind to research a property investment. During a routine taxi ride, he got jumped losing his paperwork, credit cards, jewelry and all money. Since then, he has been robbed twice, beat up, and fighting the serious depression of loneliness because there is no one else with him. He has no immediate family at home in the States, so he has relied on me solely to try to get back home, and I have run out of all financial options to bring him home.
His name is Darlingthon, and he is one of the best people I've ever met. He is funny, solid, honest and just a great person - he is my best friend, and it absolutely kills me that I can't afford to raise the money for him to get home on my own. He has been pushed down from living a very comfortable life to staying in undesirable hotels, trying to raise little cash on his own so he can eat and feeling all alone because no one else is there with him. All both of us want is for his quick and safe return to his normal life.
The airfare is roughly 3,000 dollars give or take. Please find it in your hearts to help bring my best friend back home to me and his young son - he is needed more than I can express. Getting him home urgently is the prioritiy.
Thank you for any help you can provide!
