Hey, you, kind stranger,
thank you so much for taking your time and reading my donation request, it really means the world to me!
Most of you will question why I go on a begging site to ask for money and I do owe you an explanation for that. This decision was not easy for me in the first place but I saw no other way as to do it this way.
I can’t ask family since most of my relatives passed away very early in my life, the only family I have left is my grandma and I don’t know how to contact her as we haven’t spoken in over 10 years with each other.
I can’t ask friends either as they were already so generous to buy clothes and food for my son (he’s 8) due to me not being able to afford it as I don’t have a job because of covid-19.
I lost my job at the end of 2020 while working at a retail store. They had to release most of the staff due to the regulations placed by the German government and even now when things are looking better in terms of jobs it’s so hard to find one due to lots of people looking for new jobs.
I do have pending offers going for job interviews but the competition is big and it’s really hard to find someone that employs a young mother these days it seems.
During the week I go outside and looking for empty returnable bottles but that barely makes enough to put decent food on the table for my kid. I don’t care about myself, I really just want to be able to afford food and clothes for my son.
It breaks my heart to hear my son asking when he can get for example a new toy or if we can go out and eat again like we used to do so often before all this stuff with the pandemic happened. The worst is though when my son comes home crying due to being bullied for not wearing the best clothes (even 8 and 9 year olds do that nowadays)
The debt of my credit card resulted in the loss of my job and me trying to buy food for my son.
The debt of that card is at 3500€ now and my card is obviously not usable any more.
I can barely afford rent for us but for the long term this wont help us.
Please help us, even the smallest amount of donation would help so so so much.
