It's said it's better to give a hand up, rather than a hand out. That's all I'm asking for.
I'm a construction worker, from Moore Oklahoma. Thankfully, my family was not harmed by the tornado that ripped through our town. And our house had a shelter in the basement so we, unlike many others, have a place to live while we get our lives back on track.
Unfortunately, like many independent contractors, I kept all my tools in my truck ... which the tornado removed to parts unknown. With the loss of my truck and tools, I am forcefully unemployed. Even with all the rebuilding necessary now, I can't get work due to a lack of tools.
I am hoping my fellow Americans will help me raise the money necessary to replace my truck and tools, so that I can once more resume my chosen career - as well as helping my friends and neighbors rebuild their homes and lives.
