On Sept 3, 2012I was the victim of an assault in my home. I spent the next 7 months in hospital and nursing homes. Friends put what they could have my belongings in a storage for which I pa $180.00 a month. I live on $1125 a month of disability 10 cannot afford to ship my belongings from Miami to my home in Los Angeles. I have been quoted just under $2800.00 by Pods for the transport. I have already spent over $4800 in storage fees and have no access to my belongings. I don't even have a picture of my dad here. once my belongings are back I would gladly pay the monthly rental back to those who fund me now until I have paid back their generosity. and the universe gave me a space large enough to store and use everything that's in storage. And now I ask you to to please share this with friends. Thank you so much I've got to say this is one of the most difficult things I've ever done in my life

If I don't raise a hundred and eighty dollars in the next 24 hours pods is going to put all of my belongings up for auction. I have never really had the income to pay the rental fee at pods. Since my assault by electrocution in September of 12 I have been living on a bot 1100 dollars a month that is my permanent Social Security disability amount. By the time I pay the rent utilities food there is not enough money to pay them rental of the units in Miami. So I have been using the funds that I have collected to pay the rental unit rent which is a hundred and eighty dollars a month. In my 61 years of life I have tried to live by the Golden Rule and have given myself two friends in need to charities and to random strangers who didn't have enough money to pay for their holiday meals. People say I'm nice I say I'm just like people should be. I hope that you can find it in your hearts to donate so that I can keep the memories that are in that storage. I don't have a picture of my mom, my dad, my deceased sister or any of my friends who died prematurely from AIDS. Please help, I don't know how to beg but this is as far as I know how to do it.

Had my third of six surgeries done on my hand On June 16th, the doctors are hopeful. Obviously in a lot of pain and since I have no family in this country it's been tough. Having some of my cherished belongings, memories, photos I know would help me heal so much faster. Literally I only have a passport picture of my mom and my dad as the only photos of my family. I am very close to where I need to be to be able to bring my belongings back from Miami and here is what my arm looks like since surgery.

I am so close to my goal of having so many of the sentimental and religious items back in my possession. I've been told by the storage company they're about to be sold off and not having a picture of my mom or my dad is going to be killing to me. I asked, I beg, that's you look deep in your heart and think if you were in my position a victim of a crime left paralyzed would you not be asking total strangers for help.

each time I call to get an estimate of how much its going to cost to bring my belongings from Miami to Los Angeles the cost goes up. This is very frustrating to me. I am going into extensive surgery next week and it would be nice to have some of the things that are so important to me in my life. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
