Sam and Family

My name is Sam, I am a martial arts instructor and personal trainer based in Hollywood. I am a husband and a father to an incredible 4-year-old son. Today, I am reaching out to you with a humble heart, as my family and I find ourselves in a challenging situation.

Over the past several years, our family has faced some struggles, starting with the pandemic that temporarily halted my work. The Hollywood strikes that followed became another hurdle in rebuilding my clientele. Despite these setbacks, I was able to supplement my income with online martial arts training and other content. It was a much-needed lifeline for our family.

Unfortunately, effort isn't enough. So much of where we end up is based on luck, good or bad. I know this from experience. In the past year, our family has gone through some health emergencies and challenges, resulting in not only physical and emotional strain but also medical bills and missed work. As someone who is self-employed, the absence of work means no income.

Now, we find ourselves at a point where even our lifeline is stretched thin, and to be honest, I'm not sure when things will get better.

I have set up this GoFundMe campaign with a modest goal of $500. I chose this amount because, in truth, any contribution, no matter how small, is a blessing that will make a meaningful difference in our lives. No matter what, it's a victory and a testament to the power of community. We also know many of you are dealing with your own struggles, so it didn't feel right to set a lofty goal.

If it's within your means, please consider contributing to our campaign.

With heartfelt thanks,

Sam and Family
