Hello my name is Christopher,
I would like to introduce my self, I was born and raised in southern Oregon and have two younger sisters, when I turned 4 years old my parents divorced due to an abusive father, my mother divorced my father after 4 years of abuse and took us kids to live with my great grandmother until my mother got back on her feet. at 5 years old my mother met a well mannered charming country guy who soon asked me and my sisters if he could marry my mother, bieng a kid and getting to know him seemed like my mom was safe and growing up over the years proved to be the case and could not ask for a better person for my mother and I consider him as my father Robert. over the years we moved a few places and ended up in northern California. When I graduated high school I immediately started work as a local laborer for a roofing company and worked very hard for close to a year at 18-19 years old. One day as I was walking back to work from lunch dirty from the job, I was passing a furniture build literally next to my apartment that I worked hard for and as I was passing an older gentleman came out of the furniture store and walked straight over to me and asked me if I wanted a job, I told the guy that I already had a job and I was on my way back to work, and he says how much are they paying you and who do you work for? I told the man that I was bieng paid $6 dollars an hour and that I worked for a roofing company, he then says to me that he would pay me $7:50 an hour to start and that a raise would be had in 6 months if I stayed and proved my self, I said sounds great when can I start? he says can you start tomorrow 7am? I told the man yes I can and we shook hands and I turned around and went back home for the evening and got ready for my new job the next morning. its been 17+ years now working for my boss Ron at the furniture store where I started as a warehouse man/ manager and over the years have seem many people start and leave. I have worked my way to the top as manager and now my boss wants to retire and hand over the business straight across to me this coming year 2024 and that bieng said I am more then excited and happy and its been my Drean for many years to own my own furniture business and I am fully trained to do so and I am prepared for that kind of responsibility, however due to life and its road blocks I have had to as a father and a husband take care of my 6 children and wife all by my self financially for over a year now and my monthly paycheck from my boss just hasn’t been enough which has forced me to use my credit and that bieng said I am in debt 20k and paying my debts on time but at minimum payments to keep in good standings but its very difficult with only the amount I receive monthly, plus one of my children is only 3 months old and I have been trying to give my new baby daughter all I can. my wife was receiving some funds in the beginning but those funds have been terminated and so its all me and has been for 10 months. my boss is handing the business over to me Jan 1st 2024, I have already got my Ein, business name statement and published, as well as my business banking accounts all set up, however that leaves me flat broke now for any further capital to continue the process of bieng a business owner unfortunately and the problem is is that my boss is done as of the 1st of 2024 and he wants me to have everything on my end ready at that time so he can hand over the keys to me. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m afraid I wont have everything done due to my financial situation, do I know after I am my own boss if I can make it and or succeed with the business you may ask? yes I have the know how and the training as well as the strength mentally and physically to accomplish my goal as a business owner of my dream furniture store as well as the excitement to progress and grow my business so that way I have a future and my family can live happy as well, all I am asking is for someone with a kind heart to help me out as I have done for countless people I know over the years, I am the guy who gave his shirt off his back many times for people in need of help but are not able to help back. by all means I also am not the type of person who has ever begged for money because I have worked for everything I own and which due to this economy in the states and the pay nowhere near good enough unfortunately its landed me here and my pride has had to be pushed aside for the first time in my life. thank you for listening to my story and my Dream of bieng a furniture store business owner. if by all means you would like to donate for my cause I would be so grateful from my heart and I would also keep everyone who does donate to my cause in a personal journal and every year either try to give back and or write a letter letting everyone know how I am doing. I appreciate your time and god bless.
