THE STORY:

Dear Clients, Friends, Family, & Colleagues, Happy New Year! Starting a fundraiser was not part of my bucket list for 2016 however I deem this to be a very good cause and would welcome any assistance you can provide. The day after Christmas I reached out to a client, Esdras Herrera aka Smiley, that had just purchased a home. I had received a call about a home alarm promotion and decided to follow up in case he might be interested. Indeed he was, but not for his home rather for his business. They had been robbed that morning and were out several thousand dollars. You can imagine my surprise. I felt terrible given the circumstances and thought, I wish there was something more I could do apart from the standard words of encouragement to help. If I could gather enough funds to cover at least his first mortgage payment, it would alleviate a significant stress and allow him to focus on rebuilding at work. As you all know, I don't do social media, and I don't intend to start, but it occurred to me that leveraging the power of the internet might help. To that end, any assistance you can provide in spreading the word would be appreciated. I know that we have all over extended ourselves with the holidays so there is certainly no pressure or obligation if you can't contribute. If you have a few dollars to spare however, what you might spend at a local fast food restaurant or coffee bar, it would certainly help. All fund collected will go directly to Smiley. He has no idea. I elected to use this website because a greater portion of donations would go directly to him rather than to processing fees. I thank you for your assistance and know that your gestures of good will will come full circle in the future. Who knows, the beneficiary next time around could be you. Sincerely, Christina Koch-Garcia
