Your generosity, support, and kindness is greatly needed and appreciated in this effort as  former Lt. Governor James Yangetmai must return back to Saipan to be with his family.  Sadly he does not have enough funds to pay for his moving expenses and the budget request that was submitted to the State Legislature to fund his moving expense was rejected, and now he has no other choice but to turn to his relatives, friends, and generous-heart donors for their generous assistance.  He even tried to have his office to dole out some funds to pay for some of his moving expenses, but that, too, was rejected.  

When Mr. Yangetmai relocated to Yap in January 2015 to take office, he paid for all his moving expenses, but decided not to seek any claim for reimbursement as he felt it wouldn't be prudent as he did not feel it to be an entitlement on his part.  Over the last four years there were other essential household effects that he also brought to Yap for his and his family's needs.  Now that he is moving back to Saipan he would have to mobilize some, if not all, of his belongings.

By early 2018, Lt. Governor James Yangetmai had already felt the inkling that he may be asked not to join up with his running mate for another four year term.  And knowing that his personal finances was running dry and that the government pays for moving expenses for its off-island employees including payout to expats for vacations to return home and back every two years, he decided to instructed his executive budget review committee (EBRC) to include in the FY 2019 budget request a total of $4,000.00 for his moving expense, which was sadly rejected by the then 9th Yap State Legislature.   His office wasn't receptive either, up to the last minute of his being in office, and so the only recourse available to him now is to kindly ask for your generous contribution.  He is in desperate need for help and he is praying and hoping that you do understand his plight, and will open your hands and heart to generously contribute to his cause.  Mr. Yangetmai wishes to convey in advance his sincere and deepest gratitude and appreciation to all of you, even if all you did (during the course of this crowdfunding effort) is a visit to our YouHelp.com site.  So, from all of us thank you so much.

Here in the State of Yap cost of living is so incredibly expensive, and the reality is most of us live on a paycheck to paycheck year in and year out.  For those of us from the neighboring islands working for a living here in Yap, Lieutenant Governor James Yangetmai included, our living costs are even more acute as we have so many close and extended relatives who come for medical, educational, or even pleasure reasons end up in our homes and become another burden on our limited earnings.  As the Lt. Governor, Mr. Yangetmai usually ends up hosting more than what his limited paycheck could actually afford to support.

Your generous financial contribution, even in the least amount of $3 or $5 would go a long way to pay for the handling, packing, and shipping costs of his household goods that he wishes to ship back home to Saipan.  The cost estimate by the shipping agency is in the amount requested.

Your kindness and generosity is highly appreciated and will never be forgotten.

Thank you so much for your generous support.

In spite the fact that Mr. Yangetmai was the Lt. Governor of the State of Yap, he is currently penniless and needs your generous assistance. He needs moving expenses f to return back to Saipan , and although currently poor and penniless, he may be able to reciprocate your kindness one days.

James Yangetmai came to Yap from Saipan in January 2015 to serve as the Lt. Governor for the State of Yap, and served in that capacity for four years. His term in office ended in January 2019 and now wishes to return back home to Saipan to live out his remaining years, but in dire need of financial support.

    Helping one another is what we do in our islands and as a family member, it is very hard to look away when someone is in need of our help. Wish I have more to donate more.
