Hello, my name is Richard Perkins and I am a handyman. While trying to get customers I found that there are a lot of seniors in this country that need help but they don't have the funds. I got the idea of putting this request up for them.

Seniors are the backbone of our country. They sacrificed throughout their lives to build this great country we live in. Many seniors live on a very small monthly income and they can't afford to do repairs or upgrades on their homes.

As a handyman I have the skills to help a lot of them but I do not have the funding to pay for the projects out of pocket so I thought I would ask the great people here for help.

The money that is donated wil cover costs of materials and labor that seniors need for projects from repairing bathroom and kitchen fixtures and appliances to building ramps and safe access to their homes as well as many other projects like yard work.

Because I feel appreciation for what the aging part of our society has done to build as good of country as they could throughout their lives I feel the need to give back to them by using some of my skills and talents to help them out with things they need done around their homes to make it a safer and happier place to be.

Since I am not independently wealthy I cannot afford to finance these projects so I am asking for help from the GoFundMe community.

Thank you to all in advance for your care and help. You will be helping people that sacrificed life and limb for us and you will be giving back to them by helping to improve their quality of life.

The picture included is of a small slab I did for a 90+ year old couple that needed a place to put their trash and recycle bins to keep them safely out of the way. This is an example of the small projects seniors need to better their quality of life.
