My name is Valentin. I have 25 years and I am student. I live with my mother in small Russian town in Russian province. My mother have problem with eyes and can not see.

I work very hard to buy things of primary necessities for us, but my salary is very small.

During last months prices for gas, oil and electricity became very high and we can not use it to heat our home anymore. The winter coming and weather very cold here already. We do not know what to do and we very afraid.

The only way for us of heating our home is to use portable wood burning stove which give heat with burning wood. We have many wood in our region, therefore this stove will heat our home all winter for minimal charges. But we cannot buy this stove in our local market because my salary is very small.

Thanks to free internet in our library and library computer I finded several addreses and decided to ask for help. 

May be you have any old portable stove which you don't use any more, I will be very grateful to you if you donate it for us and organize delivery its to our address. Please let me know if you can help and I will give you our address.

I wish to you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I wish that New Year bring you hapiness, good health and all your dreams come true.
