Personal Belongings Fund

Hello my name is Josh and my good friend Kevin needs some help.  Kevin is very independent and would never ask for anyone’s help. Kevin has about 30 years of personal stuff that he collected over the years that he could one day pass down to his children. Kevin also bought some really cool collectibles when he traveled overseas. All of this stuff is in a storage unit up in Virginia. For two years, he was unaware of any fees associated with this unit due to the fact that it has been under his ex-wife’s name. His ex-wife works for the government, and he was under the impression that they were paying for the unit. However, two weeks ago, Kevin found out that the government had stopped paying for the unit that not only had his stuff but his ex-wife’s stuff too. His ex-wife was able to go and retrieve her belongings because she lives up in Virginia.  Kevin is preparing to walk away from all of his personal stuff because he simply cannot afford to pay for the fees that have been accumulating over that past two years plus the transportation to ship his belongings down to Saint Petersburg, FL.  As a friend and coworker, I am asking for help to raise as much money as we can. The total cost for this expense is about $11,000.00 but that is not my set goal. My set goal is $5,000.00. I know that Kevin would do the same if I was in his shoes because we care about one another. I would be forever grateful, as he would be too, for any donations.


Thanks,

Josh Gaubatz
