My name is Shaun, and I'm in a rather bad situation.
A few weeks ago, my partner Kitty had a medical emergency. We live in the state of Victoria, Australia, where Ambulances are not free. I was getting paid Wednsday, and was finally going to have the $80 free to join us up for Ambulance coverage.
Our medical emergency happened the monday before. She was rushed to the hospital, where she had seizures and needed to be resuscitated at least once. She was in for three days before being released.
The bill came the other day. The fee itself is a little over a $1000 dollars, plus I have other related expenses (medicines, aftercare and loss of work to be at the hospital with her), so I'm hoping to raise around $1500 after the GoFundMe deduction.
I don't have anything to offer in return. I have no excess items I can give away or money to buy them, and I don't have any skills to craft rewards. However, as I feel it would be dishonest to take any excess money from the fundraiser, I will split it between donating to other GoFundMe campaigns as a form of pay-it-forward charity, and a donation to the Ambulance service, who are a not-for-profit organisation that is receiving an inadequate amount of funding from our State Government to be able to continue providing the great services they provide.
Thankyou for reading. Every dollar counts, but if you can't'donate, please Share amongst your friends and make the same request of them.
