Thank You for taking the time to read this. My name is Anthoney, I’m 50 years old, homeless, and work for a temp labor agency for close to minimum wage and could use your help to get back on my feet. My story: In 2009 I moved from my apartment in Long Beach to my mom’s house in Anaheim to help her with my stepdad who had contracted cancer, was in hospice and eventually passed away. I did not know that my mom had a severe gambling problem, for over 4 decades she cleverly hid this gambling addiction. As you already know this was the height of the “recession”. So, I applied for UI and it was approved, me being the oldest, loyal, but naive son I helped my mom save $21000.00 to catch up on her house which was in foreclosure, also planted her a veggie garden and little by little started fixing “her” house up. “Big Mistake”!, and I’ll admit that. Thinking she was going to use the $21000.00 to save the house I trusted her. Instead, she moved my “meth addict brother” into the house, the both of them teamed up on me and I became the enemy. It was heartbreaking to watch the destruction of my mom’s house which I worked hard to save. Needless to say, my mom gave the entire $21000.00 dollars I helped her save to Pechanga Casino and Resort, my meth addict brother either stole or destroyed all the family resources and eventually in May of 2013 the house was lost. So, to whoever can relate to this pain, I humbly ask for whatever funds you can donate to help me get back on my feet. Donations can be made to: Paypal.me/AnthoneyHolmes
Again, Thank You!
