I am Aoki, but most of you might know me as GCDatabase. I would first like to express my gratitude to everyone who has been a part of GCDB in any shape or form, you guys made it fun for me to still update the site even after I stopped playing. I wouldn't be here without everyone.
Truth to be told I did not want to do this, but under the encouragement of good friends like Kabuki and Speedy, I decided to give this a shot. I'll try to keep everything short so please bear with me.
I live with my mom in Singapore and unfortunately she got Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor (stage 4) few years back and is still receiving constant treatment for it every month. We were still managing fine but COVID hit. She was self-employed in the travel industry so COVID basically killed her business. Because of her health condition and the pandemic, and that she doesn't speak English well at all, she wasn't able to find a job that's suitable for her and keeps her safe at the same time. I was also starting my degree so she pretty much had no income on top of financing my studies. Stopping my degree wasn't an option because my mom's against it. She wanted me to get the degree with good grades and then go to work. You guys might have noticed that I increased the amount of ads on the site, this is the reason why. Therefore, I would love to have any help possible to alleviate our financial status till I graduate in 2.5 years. And that is why I am starting this fundraising/donation.
First off, the bulk of however much raised will go to my living expenses and school-related fees. This way, my mom will not have to worry about me. A small portion will be set aside for emergency usage just in case something happens.
For those who wish to chip in, you may click on the logo below to go to the PayPal.Me link for the donation. I appreciate any amount and any sharing of this greatly. Thank you! I really can't express how much that will help out with the situation.
