Demolished Small Business in Minneapolis Riot

Imagine leaving your life of 50 years behind to move to a country for its freedom and opportunity to make a better life, then overnight, you lose everything. A business you built with the little savings that you had, and out of nowhere, everything is shattered with no one to help.48379414_1590715278191425_r.jpeg
These lovely human beings are my parents. They left everything behind to make a better life for their children (me and my brothers). Their small used car shop was destroyed on May 27th, 2020, in the Minneapolis riot that took place for George Floyd. A man who was brutally murdered by the Police, an act of injustice and racism.

I'm asking you for half of what is needed to help rebuild my parents' business back up. Everything helps. Please consider donating, even if it's $1, and share with your social group. I will be uploading a video explaining everything that has happened. And I will provide updates weekly.

13 cars were stolen from the shop, and everything that's been left behind has been severely damaged. Windows broken into, all car key stolen, the tiny office in the corner of the lot has been turned upside down, and according to the lawyers we spoke to, there is no legal action that can be taken since there were thousands of people involved.

The shop had just been rebuilt and completed this month, recovering from an electrical fire that set the entire lot and building on fire, destroying everything. Sadly, they did not have any insurance since their building was not finished completely which would prevent insurance agents from being able to assess the property value.
