My Travel Story

Hello and welcome on my fundraising page, 

thank you for taking the time to read this. My name is Tom, i am 19 years old and originally i am from Germany but I am living in Australia for a bit more than 4 months now. I came here to work as an aupair for a family with 3 boys. The first few weeks were pretty amazing and it was great fun to spend time with my new hostkids. We had a really nice time (3rd picture). But after two months my hostmum started to become weird and grumpy and really inpolite. She wasn't as nice anymore as she was in the beginning and so i told here that i don't feel welcome anymore. She was a single mum so she was the boss in the house and it seemed she missunderstood my issue. I wanted to get rid off the problem and she wanted to get rid off me. So she kicked me out and i had to move in a hostel. I lived there for two weeks and lost my aupair job, which means i lost my weekly salary, my car and home. I was so incredibly lucky that my dad has a friend in melbourne i could move to for the first weeks. And now i am still in melbourne, but it is really difficult to find a new family, because there aren't that many families that are searching for an aupair at the moment, at especially not for a male one. I don't have money for the next months cause i had to spend it on the hostel, public transport and the flight to melbourne.

So i am asking you if you could help me by spending some dollars to help me become my expected adventure in australia real. Every donation, no matter how much, would be helpful. Thank you in advance and have a nice day.
