I am coming to you all to ask for a little help . Let me introduce you to Luis .
I have had the pleasure of working with Luis for the last 6 years , 3 of those years as his personal one on one para. Luis is 16 years old and is autistic , he is a student at JFK high school in the MIS center base classroom . He is EVERYONE'S friend!! He will greet you with a " My name is Luis " "shake hands " "Give me a hug " and my all time favorite " I love you " He is the most loving , friendliest guy I know and funny ! Luis is sooo funny !
The reason I am creating this Gofund Me is because Luis's family is really struggling financially right now . His mom is a single parent and was working nights , while his older brother worked days. Even though she worked nights , she would come home and get him on the computer to do his remote learning in the mornings, then sit beside him with little to no sleep .
Luis needs constant supervision , he is not the type of kid you can just sit in front of the tv . Mom's health hasn't been good and she recently was admitted to the hospital . She is home now but when I spoke to her last she still wasn't feeling well and might have to go back in. Obviously mom isn't able to work right now and his older brother is missing work to stay home and care for Luis.
So they have very little income coming in at the moment .
The reason I am doing this Gofund Me is to be able to help the out with a little something to cover rent / utilities and put food on the table . I know that all of us in one way or another are going through something right now and times are hard for us all. The last time I spoke with mom it broke my heart . She told me " every time I get on my feet ,something comes and knocks me right back down "
That night I only slept 2 hrs , racking my brain and trying to think of ways I could help them out . I am not the type to ask for help especially financially .
If I could take this financially on myself I would do it in a heartbeat but I can't , I need help . So I am humbly asking for help for this special family .
No matter how small of a donation everything adds up and we can all help this special family out . I thank you all in advance , if you cant't give can you please keep them in prayer and share this .
Thank you all !
