scammers.

Dear Friend,

Please excuse me for any inconvience caused by this message.

My name is Valentin. I'm a student and I live with my mother in suburb of city Kaluga, Russia, that is 200km from Moscow. My mother is invalid. She cannot see and she receives pension from the government very rare which is not enough even for medications.

I work very hard every day to be able to buy the necessities and medications for my mother, but my salary is very small, because my studies still not finished.

Due to the crisis our authorities recently stoped gas in our district and we cannot heat our home anymore. I don't know what to do, because the winter is coming and the temperature in the street will be lower than minus 20 degrees Celsius. I'm very afraid that the temperature inside our home will be very cold and we will not be able to survive.

I applied to our local Red Cross and they said me that many people apply for help every day and they cannot help to each poor family. They adviced me to apply to the Red Cross located in Moscow, since they have more possibilities to help. I sent them a letter and they asked for documents confirming our situation. I sent the documents and within a month they answered me that they help only to the people living in Moscow and adviced me to appeal for help to private people.

Thanks to the free internet access at our library I was able to find different e-mail addresses and I decided to appeal to you with a prayer in my heart for a small help.

If you have any old sleeping bag, warm blanket, warm clothes, any portable heater, canned food, vitamins, medicines against cold, any hygiene-products, I will be very grateful to you if you could send it to our postal address:

Valentin Mikhailyn,
Ryleeva Ulitsa, 6-45.
Kaluga. 248030,
Russia.

If you think that it would be better or easier for you to help with some money, please write me back and I will give you details for sending it safely if you agree. This way to help is very good because in
this case I will be able to buy a portable stove and heat our room during the winter.

I hope to hear from you very soon and I pray that you will be able to help us to survive this winter. I also hope very much that this hard situation will get better very soon in our country.

I'm sending to you many thanks in advance for your kind understanding. Please excuse me, once more, for any inconvience I could cause you by sending this message.

God Bless You,

Valentin and my Mother.
Kaluga. Russia.



i think i might send my old bed socks
