Friends and family please help me raise enough money to get, Yusuf Gooding released from Rikers Island.
On August 13, 2015, Yusuf was arrested and charged with possession of a fire arm. Since that date he has unfortunately, been sitting in Rikers Island Correctional Facility.
Many of you may not know or remember Yusuf, but he is the youngest son of, Eddie Gooding. He lives in Florida with his parents.
He's not a bad kid at all. He's 21 years old and helps daily to take care of his blind, aging and disabled father. Not too many bad kids today make it their business to make sure they're up on time to bathe an 82 year old man, give him insulin and other medications, check his blood pressure and feed him, before they start their own day. Eddie even calls him "his doctor" lol. And I mention all this to let you know the kind of young man Yusuf really is, despite his current circumstances.
According to his attorney, "Rikers is no place for a young man like Yusuf; first offence, not from New York, so young, Rikers Island is a dangerous place for him." She has stressed to the family that he must be bailed out as soon as possible.
I know it would seem like the amount of money I'm trying to raise to bail Yusuf out isn't alot. But when you don't have it and need it...it's really hard to make it happen.
So family and friends I humbly ask you to contribute any little bit you can, so that I can bail Yusuf out as soon as possible. Thanks!
