Dear famiy and friends,
I am reaching out to you on behalf of my life mentor. This is a man who is not only active in his community, but has also committed his time to help steer me in the right path. I met him when I was 18 and I attribute much of my success to mentorship and guidance. This is my attempt to give back to a person who has given so much to me.
Recently, he and his family were robbed through a home invasion. They ravaged his apartment and literally took everything and I mean everything. The intruders not only took all his valuables and collections, but they also took all his clothes. He is left with absolutley nothing and has two young children to care for. I tried to imagine myself in his shoes and would not know where to begin.
As a testament to his humility, he was more thankful that no one was hurt from this ordeal.
As he shared this information with me, two things crossed my mind:
1. Admiration for his courage
2. How can I help?
I figured the least I can do is try to raise some money for him as he attempts to rebuild his life.
So I am now reaching out to you for support. If you could find it in your hearts to help donate I would truly appreciate it. Any and all contributions are welcomed. I will collect all contributions until December 24th, 2012. I plan on giving him 100% of all donations on December 25th, 2012.
In the spirit of kindness,
