    John needs your help!

    First of all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

    As you all know, 2021 was a strange year, what with all the Covid-19 measures in so many countries.

    Unfortunately, Greece (where I live) was not an exception. Several, crazy measures were implemented, starting from having to send an SMS (text message) to a special number, in order to go out of your house,making swimming in the sea illegal, etc, etc. Lately, the government has announced a new measure, to fight Covid.

    All those above 60 years old, and not vaccinated, wil have to pay 100 euros per month, as a fine! And yes, I am 64 yo, unvaccinated.

    In addition to that, several companies shut down, because of the stupid measures. That affected me too, as I am unemployed since February. If you add the fact of Biden's election and his threats against gun ownership, my income from advertisers in M1911.ORG has been greatly reduced, if not zeroed.

    I have now reached a point, where I can't even provide food for my family, let alone pay the monthly bills.

    I would therefore like to ask you, M1911.ORG members, to help me. I know this is strange, but I am out of alternatives.

    If it is possible, I would sincerely appreciate any small donation you can contribute. Ypu may use my Paypal account for that, at sv1cec@gmail.com. If you do not have Paypal, but still want to contribute, please email me at john@m1911.org.

    I would appreciate any help you can provide, no matter how small or large. This is an extreme situation for me and my family. This is NOT a joke!

    P.S.: Needless to say, that if someone can offer me a joh, it will also be appreciated! Very much so!

    Gosh John, life can be hard and feel it myself, I'm 77 now, but can't imagine not being vaccinated, I lost my sister to Covid in Dec. 2020 before the Vaccine was first offered. Please get it as a positive example to others who are resistant for what ever reason. It doesn't hurt and have had all three to date, this virus and its death toll is real. I will be happy to get a booster as often as recommended. Best.

    Well, the government said that this monthly penalty will be stopped, but I haven't seen it yet.

    The problem is that I am too old and most companies hiring people here are not very fond of 65 year-olds. So getting a job is next to impossible, been looking for one since February without any luck. I have a hard time putting food on the table for the family.
