dear people, As I am not person who often ask help from others, I came here to try anything to raise some money to buy a ticket to visit my wife and son( who is 3 years old now) in Indonesia. Every year I spare money so I can see them once a year around christmass and new year. Unfortuneally I lost my job and had to use the money on my spare acount to pay the bills in the time I was un-employed. This year I might not see them as I could not afford a simple plane ticket. My wife and son not might know it yet as I not want to dissapoint them, that I could not come to visit them this year. I met my wife when I was 19 years old, I backpacked true Indonesia where I met her in Surabaya. Some months later she turns out to be pregnant from me. from that time I turned back to the netherlands (that's where I live) so I could work and provide them with the things they need. I used to work as a sales men provided with a full-time contract and a regulair income. But just like many others our contracts where not being extended and the most of us lost their job because of that. I've been un-employed for 6 months now but doing some volunteer work where I get payed 30 procent of the minimal income what is better than nothing. But It is not enough to pay a plane ticket from the Netherlands to Indonesia. I live with my parents again as I could not pay the rent anymore. But gracefull that I can provide my wife and son enough money to pay theirs. I not asked anybody for any help before. but it would mean the world for me,to be with my family in the hollidays. I thank everybody who reads this or even help me to raise money for a ticket. I not expect anybody to fund me for this, as there are many others who deserve your fundings as much as I do. But for those who do I could not say enough how much I am gracefull for the help you gave me. I have not much to give so there is nothing I can reward you with. but for those who are interessted I can send them pictures of me and my family ,to let you know that the money will be used to good. Only I could raise enough money for actualy buy a plane ticket Whatever this will help me out or not, I wish everybody a great christmass and a happy new-year. p.s. my english is not perfect but I hope it was good enough to share you my story with.
