Paul "The Main Man" Morison is a man who, like many of us, is afraid to ask for help.
So I've decided that in a time of need and at risk of losing his home and his business, that it's time to reach out to our community and ask for your help.
Paul is a father of two and a man who is in the business of creating positive change for people through the channel of boxing for fitness. He is also an established boxer and the epitome of a professional athlete.
He has helped thousands of people and changed numerous lives in the short time he has been in business.
I've been his coach for two years now. He is the hardest working human I've ever met. He trains like an animal, never drinks, never smokes and never does drugs.
He is up every morning at 5am running and is more committed than ever....
So, why are we telling you this?
A week ago, Paul's world was turned upside down when, like any other morning, he went to work only to find that the doors to his gym were locked and bolted.
Unfortunatly he has had everything taken from him in a heart beat. Paul sub-leased a part of a gym in Perth and like any responsible tenant, paid his rent monthly, as per the agreement.
If you're wondering how this happened here's a snapshot....The guy he was renting from, was renting the entire building from the property owner. He hadn't paid the property owner rent for so long that when Paul showed up a week ago he found his gym and his livelihood, shut down, literally locked.
His clients are like family and to protect them, Paul has decided to freeze the monthly debits from his accounts and all money owed to him is being held by his direct debit company.
The Human Impact
In the past week, as a result of the stress, Paul has gone days without eating and (as a true fighter) still shows up to sparring. However, the impact is starting to show and with an average of two hours sleep a night, the impact is beginning to show, as it would for any parent, business owner or athlete committed to creating positive change.
How can you help?
As you now know, Paul is a fighter and in addition to fighting to save his business and family, he is also training for his next event on December 11th.
But needs help.....And he needs it now!
He won't ask, but I will.
What we are looking for is financial support for him to eat, pay his bills, continue supporting his children, see his physio and basically get a good night's sleep!!
When do we need the funds?
As soon as possible.
With Christmas just around the corner, we are praying that you can help Paul. If you know him or if you have ever been in a situation where it seems like life can shut you down, please donate a few bucks to "The Main Man" Paul Morison! My friend!
