Help Mr. Koffi Get Home

For many years my family has had the priviledge to get to know Mr. Ahoutou Koffi.  He is a kind and gentle man who came to this country from the Ivory Coast to try and fulfill an American dream and to help support his family back home.  For years Mr. Koffi has delivered groceries to customers homes from our local supermarket.  In the cold, the snow, the rain, the heat Mr. Koffi undauntedly would make sure his customers received their goods.  Always with a smile Mr. Koffi would gently knock at your door and hand delivery multiple heavy bags of groceries.  He never missed a day of work and even when his hands and back ached he made sure his cusomers got their groceries and he never complained.  
Now, as he has aged, Mr. Koffi would like to return home.  We have gifted him some money to help begin paying for his plane ticket and get him the expense money he needs to go home and enjoy his later years.  We ask that you reach into your heart and contribute any amount you can to help him realized his dream and return home.
We should all hope to work as hard and be as honorable as Mr. Koffi and perhaps someday have kind people help when needed.
Thank You in advance for your kindess!
