Hello, my name is Patricia, and I am reaching out to you today seeking support for my dear friend Nicholas Gomez. Today a devastating fire engulfed his century-old apartment building in Portland. He managed to escape with only the belongings in his pockets, everything else that he cherished was reduced to ashes. It is a miracle that his beloved dog was saved minutes before their part of the building exploded, thanks to the heroic efforts of the Portland Fire Department and a friend.
To compound his loss, Nick had already endured the pain of losing his sister earlier this year. The weight of these back-to-back tragedies is an emotional and financial challenge that no one should endure.
As his friend, I have had the privilege of witnessing his caring nature for over a decade. Nick has always been the first to lend a helping hand, supporting others in their endeavors and inspiring them to be the best versions of themselves. He is a dedicated and hardworking individual who poured his love, effort, and hard-earned money into creating a cozy and warm home in his apartment.
As you may know, housing costs in Portland have skyrocketed, making it even more difficult for Nick to find a new place to call home. Moreover, the inflationary economy has made it increasingly challenging to replace the essential items he lost in the fire.
I implore you to join me in supporting Nick on his journey to rebuild his life from the ground up.
Your generous contributions will help him secure a new home, replenish necessities, and regain a sense of stability and hope.
In times like these, our collective compassion and solidarity can make an extraordinary difference. Let us come together to show Nick that he is not alone and that there is light at the end of this dark tunnel.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness and support for Nick.
With gratitude, Patricia
