Rico from Brooklyn, NY

Father of two. With your help I can make a career cleaning and detailing cars!

I'm passionate for cars & enrolled in automotive school. To start my upholstery work/detailing business, I need a power washer, car buffers, etc.


I am a 57 year old male who's been in and out the shelter system due to unforeseen circumstances. I am currently in automotive school learning how to do upholstery work/wrapping cars. I have 2 young children whom I love dearly.

My goals are to open my own mobile car wash/car detailing business., provide for my kids, and find and obtain permanent and suitable housing.

I need money to buy car upholstery tools to start my business: power washer, cleaning materials, car buffers, and sanding materials.

Meeting this need will help gain steady income and by also help me support my family financially.
