Subject: Request from Russia
From: "Valentin" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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 the
city of Kaluga, Russia. 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 take care of 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 now we cannot heat our home. I don't know what to do, because the
winter is coming and the temperature in the street can be lower than
minus 20 degrees Celsius. I'm very afraid that the temperature inside
our home can be very cold and we will not be able to survive.
Thanks to the free internet access at our local library I was able to
find several e-mail addresses, including yours, while browsing
different websites and I decided to appeal to you with a prayer in my
heart for a small help.
If you have any old electric heater, warm clothes, high-calories food,
vitamins, medicines from cold weather, any hygiene-products, I will be
very grateful to you if you could send it to our postal address which
Ryleeva Ulitsa, 6-45.
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
the necessities here are not very expensive.
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 wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2005. 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
Valentin and my mother Elena.
