Hi, I’m James Razsa, I'm 23 years old and George Bush Sr.’s pool boy. I work roughly 45 hours a week at $9 dollars per hour, after tax that’s $7.50, $300 dollars a week, $1200 a month. You’re thinking, “get a different job!” I tried to find a job for two months before I got this one. Honestly, I like my job fine; I’ve had much worse for much less money, I’m not saying this to complain, I’m saying this because I need your help.
I graduated from high school in Gray, Maine and went to college in Boston for film, my lifelong dream. But tuition continued to rise and despite the fact that I was getting dean’s list grades, after two years I had to withdraw. $22,000 for just tuition was more than I could afford. Since then I have been working in the construction and service industries. I haven’t given up on film and want to head to LA soon to try to get into the industry by starting at the bottom and working my way up. I’m telling you this because I want you to know that I’m not stupid or lazy, but I’m embarrassed to ask for help. My teeth are quite literally falling apart. I found a dentist that gave free dental assessments; he said it would cost $3000 to fix my teeth. This is more then I make in two months. The dentist diagnosed me with having "soft enamel" which causes my teeth to deteriorate at a faster rate than most even though I take care of them.
I have never been on welfare, unemployment, gotten food stamps or any other government assistance. I’m not a leech and have never asked for help but now I need it, or I will lose my teeth. Anything you can give, I truly appreciate. If you have any questions at all, feel free to email me at: Teeth4james@gmail.com
If we are lucky enough to reach our goal and more, we will donate all excess money to charity.
