Hi, I'm Jeff. It is our intention to collect funds so that Jed and I can meet, and possibly marry. I'm an hourly truck driver working for flat rate and he is a full time medical student. Despite my best efforts; house payments, car payments, insurances, taxes, etc., I'm finding it extremely difficult to save money to bring Jed to the US from the Philippines. I thought I had a handle on things until Obama Care soaked up the last of my paycheck. I realize that things are tough for everyone, but we could use some help.
The amount we are asking for will cover 1 round trip ticket on ecomony class plus visas and various government fees. I would've liked to go to the Philippines to get him, but the Philippine Govt. does not recognize gay marriage. Once Married, Jed will have to return to the Philippines to complete his medical school...simply because we can't afford medical school in the US.
I'm a proud man that rarely asks for help. That being said, have you ever met someone who, without even seeing them first, you thought OMG, he's the one? Jed is my life, he is gentle, respectful, and wants to help those who can't help themselves. How can you not love someone like that:) I've worked the legal amount of hours I can (70 hours) a week to make this happen but i don't think I can do it alone.
We are not expecting to raise the full 2500, just enough to fill the gaps. Whether you donate or not, we both hope you are blessed and have found true love of your own. Thank you!
Jed and Jeff
