My mom, sister and I have fallen on hard financial times, and we need your help getting back on our feet.
My sister, who was making the majority of our income, got laid off from her administrative job at a real estate company, in July 2018. We then got evicted from a subletting living situation we were all three in. My mom gets a small social security check, which is not enough to sustain even one person, let alone three people.
We sustained a motel for about six months, before we drained all of our resources, and ever since March 2019, we have been in and out of motels, spending a lot of time directly on the streets.
Life on the streets is not even life at all. It is merely just existing.
It is a struggle everyday, just to survive.
There is the physical aspect of this plight, which is constantly lugging all of our possessions around, which is physically taxing on our bodies. We are also constantly harassed by police, security, business owners, and neighbors, who constantly tell us to leave wherever we are.
As long as we are all alive in physical, human form, we all have to have our physical bodies somewhere.
Experiencing this plight is traumatic enough on its own, but the harassment, judgment, the lack of compassion and understanding, and just the overall mean treatment we receive from a hostile majority, because of the stigma attached to this condition, makes functioning like a normal human being nearly impossible.
We are at rock bottom.
We don’t currently have any transportation to store any of our belongings, nor to travel anywhere we need to go, so with our belongings with us at all times, the horrific treatment we receive is magnified tenfold, as when many surmise that you are homeless, you are treated worse than the gum on the bottom of your shoe.
When outside, we are sleep deprived, devoid of showers, a bed, warmth (as our body temperatures are never regulated properly, so we are always cold, even if it’s sunny outside), and we aren’t eating a lot either, as our food supply is sparse. All of these things not only exhaust us physically, but cause us to be weary in spirit.
We have also discovered that organizations don’t get you housing, unless you are a single mom with small children, a battered woman, or you are disabled in some way.
Everyone else is on their own.
Most of the people we know are either willing, but not able to help us, or able, but not willing to help us.
We need the love and support of those who are both willing and able to contribute to helping us get back on our feet.
My sister, as I mentioned earlier, does administrative work, and has been on many interviews since being laid off, yet hasn’t landed a new job yet. She is very much wanting to land full time employment again, to be self sufficient again.
I am a musician https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/clrand, and I am also very astute at doing numerology readings (combined with astrology), and I seek new, exciting opportunities in these areas for myself, to make a decent living.
We are just a loving family, who have temporarily fallen down, and just need assistance getting back to life, so we can feel human again.
Even when we are in motels, we are riddled with constant anxiety, because we know we have to check out again a couple of days later, so we never get to truly relax, get good sleep, and we have no sense of stability and security to function from.
We need a new home.
We need stability and security.
We need a stable base to operate from.
When you are in survival mode only, with your basic needs being unmet, it is extremely difficult to do anything else.
We are not nomadic, gypsy spirits.
We want, need, and love having a stable home.
We just need some help right now, as we all need help in this life, as none of us makes it alone in this world.
Our intention is to raise $70,000, as “7” is a very spiritual number in numerology, and also, because, when you are starting over from rock bottom, the costs, just to get back to feeling normal, can add up rather quickly.
I have listed a pay pal link below, but I just created it, and I don’t currently have a bank account, so we can access your kind donations much quicker and easier through my sister’s pay pal account, as she already has a bank account.
You can donate to her pay pal account by using her e-mail address, mmr09loves firstname.lastname@example.org. That’s ZERO (the NUMBER) 9, not “O” (the letter) 9. You can put her name on it, which is Melinda Rand.
Thank you for taking your time to read all of this.
We greatly appreciate it, as well as your understanding, compassion, and financial assistance.
