Blessed Day, Maam/Sir!

My name is Anecharcon Niez Licardo (I go by Charm). I am a mother of 4 kids, a wife, a daughter, a sister of 3, a sister in law of 2, and I am God-Loving woman. I live in a small rural community in the Philippines which has a little over 100 people including my own family.

My story is one of significant challenges that we are facing due to Covid19.

Before this CORONA pandemic happened, we had work (me, my husband, sister, brother-in-law and my mother) and some people in the Village all were able to earn money - enough to support our Family needs (basic needs).

Prior to Covid 19, I was diagnosed with a Gall Bladder Stones and I was advised to stop working for a Surgery. Then, Covid19 struck, and suddenly all of our employment stopped.

So, I had no choice but to use my saved money (small amount of saved money). Naturally, I used it decided to used it for food and formula milk (9kids), and for the 17 people in my immediate family and it lasted 1-month for all of us. Then, whatever money we had together ran out.

So, we turned our focus to gather fallen food from a coconut trees and banana trees, thank God! But, we had no choice but to give the babies water with sugar as substitute for the Formula Milk. Suddenly, we were without enough food or money to feed ourselves and were and have been living on 1 meal a day, drinking our also short supply of water to stay alive.

We did also asked our neighbors to pay us just for $1 for getting them some water downhill for us to buy food. I experienced too selling the banana of our neighbors and pay me for $1(50pesos) for me to buy 1 kilo of rice. This worked for a short while but soon it too ran out and we all found ourselves in a very desperate situation, without money or food as even what we could gather from the fallen fruit has since ran out.

So, we decided to asked help from our GOVERNMENT, RELATIVES, FRIENDS and most of all to UNKNOWN PEOPLE on FACEBOOK.

Thankfully, we did receive some help from the government but it was not much at all, certainly not enough and it too soon ran out!

So, out of sheer desperation, I asked for help from unknown people on Facebook and thank God too because doing so has literally saved us. Specifically, I found support from the Global Meditation and Prayer Facebook group created by Michael O’Connor (https://www.facebook.com/groups/607997629811630/). Although he explained that this group was not a charity, he recognized the desperation of my situation and so Michael supported me by guiding me to create a GoGetFunding page and a Facebook page so that I could share my story more fully with pictures and videos. I did that and I we set our goal for support at a modest $1000.00 USD, thinking that might be enough.

Thank God, I found this group, Thank God for GoGetFunding (https://assets.gogetfunding.com/business-for-my-families-future/) and their wonderful platform which directs all the money donated directly to my account, except for a small 5% fee – no middle men taking from what is donated!

And Thank God that some kind-hearted people have helped us, even they don’t know us.

Here is a list of the people who helped us with their donations and who we are deeply grateful to for supporting us in this time Covid19 global pandemic, and I sincerely hope I have listed them all. If I did not, my apology and thank you, you know who you are and what you have shared and I am so grateful:

Mr.Michael O'Connor, Ms.Christine Berger, Ms.Deanne Bingleman, Ms.Deana Ledford, Ms.Sandy Corlett, Ms.Toni Hayward, Ms.Rachel Landers, Ms.Shileen Jacks, Ms.Natarsha Misins, Ms.Cody Rockall, Ms.Brandy Jenskin, Ms.lisa Summers, Ms.Amanda Stimmel, Ms.Tabitha Vincent, Ms.Renita Juan, Ms.Christine Lewis, Ms.Jersey Haye, Ms.Erika Gary, Ms.Sonya Sidhu, Dr.Jo Stroud, Ms.Karina Robinson, Ms.Sara Gabisson, Ms.Susie James, Ms.Kari Six Cocos Angels

Michael O’Connor and others from the group, people we don’t even know and who do not know us, have been generous enough to help us to realize our goal, and it has proven to be just enough to see us through, but not 1 dollar more, literally, and yet now that campaign is over and we find ourselves at a critical crossroads again, and we are very frightened and hungry.

Covid19 is still here and our struggles and our collapsed economy is not over!!! So, here we find ourselves, desperate again and reaching out to the compassion, kindness and generosity of people thousands of kilometers away literally on the other side of the world!

Thank God for this help and these people. If they had not helped us, I don’t want to think about how it could have been for us. Already when I first reached out, our children were showing signs of malnutrition such as sores on their body…

So that was started last May until Now and we were able to generate $1050. USD. Every dollar donated has gone to support our needs for FOOD, FORMULA MILK and MEDICINE. So, we have survived, but barely, and we are not out of this crisis yet…

So, I am now again cornered by Covid19 and am reaching out to your compassion, kindness and generosity to help us. This time, I am looking further down the road. I have created this next GoGetFunding campaign to cover us for the next six months with a target amount of $8,000.00 USD

And, I have also decided to also take matters more fully into my own hands. I reached out in desperation and am not free from it yet. But, I have also decided to focus to create an online business, a family business.

We have decided and are determined open a Convenience Local Grocery Store on our own lot/place selling daily basic need foods (canned goods, noodles, biscuits, seasoning, spices, hygiene products, toiletries, frozen foods, cooked viand,) etc…

Of course, for us to do this we really need to have a Capital to start up the business and that is why I am setting the goal of $8000 USD which will allow us to buy food to survive in the short term, but also, hopefully to be able to create our store and buy supplies to sell.

It does so happen that July 19 is my birthday and I am praying that it is one that I will be able to celebrate with peace and health and not with fear and desperation.

I…, we do not want to have to ask for this support, but we find ourselves with little choice.

Yet, this time we are asking not only reaching out for funding to survive, and be able to help the others in our community too, but we will also use it to support our goal to become self-sufficient in the midst of this pandemic which God only knows when it will be over.

We pray and are so grateful for any support you can offer us in this time of crisis and desperate need that we find ourselves in.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to read this and for any financial support you can spare. As I have done before, I will also again post photos and videos of how the money donated is spent.
