I would like to start off by saying I apologize if this is disorderly. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this and I am a little nervous, stressed, worried and in a rush as time is critical. I do think this is amazing and can’t wait to be on the other side with you guys one day helping others!
I am 37yrs old with two children both in their early teens. I have been barely making it for about a year now. I have always worked and provided for my children. In November of last year I lost my job for poor attendance. I will not argue the fact that yes I had poor attendance but these absences were out of my control. As I had missed for surgery, transmission not working in my vehicle and so on. Though I do not blame them as I was absent for more than policy allowed, it made and already tough situation even more so. I have been getting by and I found another job though it is not paying near enough. In my search for a more adequate career, once again things are making it difficult to provide and survive for my children and I.
I did have my transmission replaced and it was wonderful for a few months, now it is leaking transmission fluid and my warranty is out. My daughter is struggling with some emotional/mental health issues, and is requiring therapy. My grandmother was placed in a nursing home as the family could no longer adequately provide what she required, and we all are pitching in to cover the financial cost. I’m not one to make excuses and I know life is hard for many. I know that it will get better one day. I am working as hard as I can and trying to figure out every way possible to make rent, utilities, provide food, necessities and medical/personal expenses. And though I am doing this daily I have come to the point of I cannot provide rent, my utilities will be cut off, my gas already has been shut off and the reconnection fee is more than the bill. I am at a loss of how to financially cover all my responsibilities.
I come here requesting $2,000 this would provide my rent and for my gas to be turned back on. I do hope I was detailed enough to elucidate the reason for my request.
I do appreciate anything given and thank you in advance!
