Help HONY Tractor Guy In Pakistan!!

This is a fundraiser for the gentleman highlighted on Humans of New York: Pakistan Edition.  This kind gentleman needs a hand up from us. If you can donate a small amount, we can jointly positively impact this man's life. 

The gentleman is in debt for $5000. I set the goal for $6000 as he indicates he only makes $120 a month. I am sure an extra $1000 would be greatly appreciated for his home/children, etc.

Numerous people have voiced concerned this is a scam. I am not a scammer. I am just a lady in Tennessee trying to do something life changing for someone else on the other side of the world simply because I can. 

Thank you for caring, Internet. <3 

“Last month I had an accident that destroyed my tractor, and now my life has been ruined. I’d saved for that tractor for three years. When I finally bought it, I was so happy. Things seemed to finally be moving forward. I was working crops and making money. Now it’s destroyed, but I still owe $5000. I only make $120 a month, and most of that goes toward renting this new tractor. I’m still very injured from the accident. I should be in bed but I could take any more days off. I didn’t used to look like this. I used to care about my appearance and wear proper clothes. I used to eat proper meals. But I can’t afford any of that now. I have nothing left to sacrifice.”
