Every day each one of us has our own struggle, our own family to take care of, our own challanges to face. Some have it easier than others, some are able to reach their dreams, yet others seem to have the weight of the entire world on their shoulders.
When I came across the story of 15 year old Tristan (TRISTAN DYNEL GOGIT) it was hard to even believe his strength and courage to survive. Because at just 15 years of age he is responsible for his 2 younger siblings, feeding them and watching after them. But it is Tristan's one kidney is already damage and he needs to survive on just one other and lack of a job that makes his care so amazing. This young man didn't give up, instead he sings for donations for medication and food.
There are so many people in the world that need help it can be overwhelming, but when I saw this story I knew that this brave young man truly needed and deserved some help so that he may not only live but also continue to take care of his siblings.
Sadly, his parents separated and have their own lives both with new families and without the resources to provide for Tristan or his siblings; Tristan is left to fend for himself. I can hardly imagine how difficult his struggle is and the burden he must endure all with his own illness and physical pain he never gives up to sing.
Tristan does not know me, he does not know that I have made this page and he will never know who you are if you donate to help him. But maybe, if we can see in our hearts to give we can change the life a young man that was left behind without hope. Maybe, we can help him change his future from dark to hopeful.
If you can, please help Tristan and his siblings. They are just one story of many children in the Philippines but it is at least one we can change. Tristan did not give up; let us not give up on him- I truly believe he needs and deserves an anonymous helping hand.
