I’m starting a gofundme page for my hardworking grandpa! As some of you might know or for those of you who don’t know my grandpa, Khoua Neng Vang, he spends his days collecting tons of cans that he travels long and far for. I remember as a little girl my grandpa has always done this to be able to support and provide for us. He personally never takes any money from his family even when we offer it. Plus he enjoys the exercise! He collects bags and bags of cans to return to the disposal center at the end of every month. My grandpa is too old and unable to work a traditional job so this is his way of
1. Contributing to the earth clean up (even though he might not be aware of it, haha!)
2. Providing for himself and saving money for any emergencies/bills/daily expenses.
Unfortunately today, while he was gathering his bags he set them aside in his yard for my dad to load up once he arrived (14 large trash bags). He entered his home for a short moment to get ready and a black pickup truck who we assume has been watching him, pulled up and loaded all of his bags into the bed of their truck. Because my grandpa is too old to defend himself and my dad was still a few minutes away, my grandpa literally had to watch someone steal his hard earned money that he had been collecting for months. To make it even worse my grandpa even tried to chase the truck to no avail.. :(
Most of you can agree with me that if someone did something to hurt your grandparents you would do anything in your power to help them!!!
Which is why I’ve created this page. My grandpa is so distraught and upset over this situation and if any of you are able to help donate or even just share the link, it would mean the world to us. I am just trying to help him get his hard earning money back.
