    yes i am the one who personally asked the lawyer to charge a fee of $1000 from anyone who is receiving a donation from me so i know that the person is willing to make a sacrifice and can help others when he or she receive my donation. but i am willing to help you because you seem like a good person, so if you have $500 give it to my lawyer for the legal signing and then you get your donation"

    my self by going to Microsoft and Google to make a research. I decided to elope to Asia with my Son because of my poor health been a
