American Dream Come true for a family
Organized by: Lina Velez
My name is Lina Velez and like many people in this country, I am an immigrant . My parents brought me here when I was very young, my home has been and always will be USA. I am proud to be a citizen and I honor my red white and blue. I have struggled and worked to be able to provide for my children, as my parents did for my brothers and myself. We learned that we can achieve happiness only if we work hard.
I have met many people in the search of the American Dream and I have helped those that I could. This year I met a wonderful family they came to the USA running away from a country that does not believe in freedom or human rights. They came from Venezuela. They have endured the first 5 months working at whatever came their way and do it with passion and dignity. They are a happy group and a group that wants to stay together as family that shows its love for one another . The children are a 12 year old boy and 4 year old girl.
They have only one month to be able to file for their asylum otherwise they will have no choice but to be forced to return to a situation of danger and fear. Their story goes much deeper than that, but all I can say is that they deserve a chance to live a life without fear and where the children can grow up in a safe and sane environment . I ask you today to please help me out to gather some funds for this amazing family. I normally don't ask for things like this. I knock on doors and try to help as much as I can. But today, time is of essence and I can't do it alone. Please help them. $1 , $2 $5 $10 whatever you can does make the difference. Help me spread the word and let's help this family achieve their dream of a better life free from oppression and violence.
