For those that have ever been probed by him or felt his dark corruption flow into you (sorry, had to inject some humor into a serious topic):

FreeHealsForYou(Ysmel) will be attempting to start a new life outside his home in Venezuela. For those who may not know, the country is going through some difficult times that only look to be getting worse.

Another fellow Panda, Smoke, is offering to help Healz until he gets on his feet if he can manage to migrate to the US. This would be a long, uncertain and difficult process, but it will be virtually impossible without physically starting on American soil.

With that in mind, Smoke has started a gofundme to get Healz started. Feel free to donate any amount you can spare!

A few things I'd like to say. Thank you Faulig for creating this thread, Smoke for not only setting the gofundme page but for also offering me a place in his home so I can start there and not just on my own. Kaisa for green lighting this thread and everyone who's helped or will help, this could be life changing for me! Also, it doesn't matter if you can't donate, you can share on fb or twitter if you can.

That is all, I must now return to my usual torturing and probing of innocent bystanders (Thank you)

As a little update to this, they've just granted me my passport appointment and I have a friend in Caracas (the capital city) helping me figure out the visa process since by orders from the "president" here, anyone leaving the country to the US will not be allowed to return so I'd be some sort of political exile (?).

Basically, I leave, they won't let me return and if I do, I'll probably get arrested for what they call "high treason"

Seriously though, trying to give this campaign greater visibility. Let's make this Panda American. ;)

My buddy smoke posted an update on the gofundme page so I'll just copy/paste it here:
Smoke wrote:
Some good and bad news. The bad news is there are no visa appointments being given in Venezuela and no hopes of that changing sometime in the future.. The good news is there is some ray of hope.

He doesn't need a Visa to travel to Ecuador and the situation there is a lot better, they switched their currency to US dollars back in 1999 and the living expenses are a lot cheaper than in the US.

This could definitely be the break that he needs to start a new life and help his family, if we get even at half the goal he could move and live for a while as he gets a job and it can be a stepping stone in order for him to come to the US, so please help in any way that you can. Even sharing this through Facebook or posting on twitter will help a lot..

This short video shows the situation in this country, this is what you'll be helping him and his family escape from!

A friend of mine is also helping by having this campaign being shared with some of her modder friends, so hopefully it'll have more visibility. Thank you!

Seems pretty risky to me. If someone drops the ball, you could be out $35k.
