Alle Jahre wieder bittet Valentin um Spenden
Subject: AW: : (04-Nov-2008 16:04)
My name is Valentin. I'm 26 years old and I live with my mother in Russia.
My mother cannot see and her indemnity is not enough even for food and
Due to the deep crisis in our country recently I lost my job and our
situation became very difficult. Now I finded a new job, I work very
hard but I was told that this work will be only for a couple of weeks.
The price for gas is very high in our region and we cannot use it for
heating our home anymore.
I don't know what to do, because the winter is coming and the weather
is very cold here already.
I finded several e-mail addreses and thanks to free internet access
in our local library I decided to appeal to you for help.
If you have two old sleeping bags, warm clothes, electric water-boiler,
canned and dried food, vitamins, medicines from cold, hygiene-products,
I will be very grateful if you can send it to our address:
Ryleeva Ulitsa, 6-45.
The only way for us to heat our home during winter is to use a portable
wood burning stove from cast iron which give heat from burning wood, but
we cannot buy it in a local shop because it is expensive for us.
I hope to receive your answer. I also hope that this hard situation will
get better very soon.

We urgent need portable stove which heat with burning wood. We have many
wood near home, but we can't buy this stove at local market because it cost
equivalent of 194 Euro and very expensive for us.
If you have any old wood burning portable stove, I pray that you can donate
it to us and organize transport of it to our address. It usually made from
cast iron and weight about 150kg.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year!
