I am sorry to ask but maybe I can repay or give something back somehow. It is a strange time to ask for help. I have never asked outside my family for any hand out, and now we are simply trying to get by.
Two months ago I resigned my position as editor of a small newspaper in Locust Valley NY. I was pushed out for political reasons, and the owners would not pay me. The mother and son brought in friends without jobs and were eliminating me after 7-years of working, as assistant editor and office manager. The original owner passed away almost 5-years ago. While the owner was sick he entrusted me to keep the paper afloat and running the paper. No matter what, I would juggle and spread out payments to vendors as the cash flow was always a problem. The new owner would put money into the paper but said last year, December 2018, she would put nothing else in. I bent over backwards to keep things on an even keel. The original owner believed it was his community service even though he made no profit. I loved the job and the writing. This has been a painful time.
When the owners would not pay me my salary, and I was belittled with innuendo and comments, I figured it was time to leave. I have asked many times, since January 8th to please give me my rightful due. They owe me $704. I have no savings and am struggling tremendously. My credit cards are maxed.
I am trying but it is not easy to find work. I am doing a few things here and there and have also started a website on Zazzle. https://www.zazzle.com/store/bluebuddhaone
It is very interesting. I use some of my art work and superimpose the work on leggings and t-shirts. I only make a few dollars for anything sold, and have sold some. I would like to find a way to use my designs with someone interested in starting a business, or find a manufacturer willing to work with me where I would be able to make more than just a few dollars per item. Doing this work could be successful.
I am behind in credit payments, and living expenses are difficult. I live with my 89-year-old mother and brother and am a caregiver. And my dear cat Baby is a 20-year-old boy with kidney disease and needs to go to the vet.
I need about $4000 but anything would be a help and a blessing. I thank you very much. I will get out of this difficulty somehow and would find a way to repay you if wanted. What a mess, and embarrassing. My heartfelt thanks and be well. Christine M.
