Hello there kind folks, my name is Tikky, I’m an Albertabound country & rock raised lady in my early 20’s. I am an animal lover & a Jeep enthusiast with a heart of gold that I wear on my sleeve & unfortunately never had a good start with life. My childhood was riddled with physical & mental abuse from a man who demanded I call him dad even though he biologically was not. He & my mum had met in high school & decided to give dating a shot after they had reunited years later. I was about 4 years old when my not so glamorous world turned completely upside down. My mother got pregnant with his child & it was then she realized we were in a bad situation. My mother was not allowed to get a job nor her license making caring for i & my baby sister difficult as, Bad man we’ll call him, was not home often & never gave my mother money to provide for us. Bad man would hurt my mum infont of my sister & I. He would hurt my sister & I for things that we never even did. He would take his anger out on us whether he was mad at the football game going poorly or his supper not prepared just right. He would hit me each time I refused to call him dad. I would break dishes to advert his aggression towards me rather than my baby sister all while mum was too sick in bed because of him to protect us. Finally though after one final brutal fight we found a way out. Packing nothing but the clothes on our backs we left packed in a single cab truck of my grandparents. Unfortunately even after our escape we were not out of harms way. Bad man continued to stalk us, throwing countless court dates at us sueing, going for custody & taking full control over the home he promised my mother would get half. Years of this has caused my small family to go broke due to lawyer expenses & fuel to travel to & from the court houses. I have tried & struggled for awhile trying to make income to help support my mum & little sister. They are currently living on my grandparents property in an old fifth wheel holiday trailer in the middle of almost nowhere, 45 minutes from town. I currently reside with my boyfriend in a very small space with his parents as there of course is no room for me in the trailer. My grandparents house is small also. I am asking for income for my family & I to make it through this winter. As Canadian winters can be unforgiving & a holiday trailer won’t stand against the cold without proper winterizing.. I am also asking for income for my family pets as they are family. I have a horse, a kitten & two beautiful betta fish who need feed, water & of course to be a bit spoiled here & there. I unfortunately suffer from chronic asthma & need an inhaler to breathe properly. They unfortunately are not cheap & I can’t always afford them. I would really love to raise at least $5,000 to help keep my family warm & fed this winter. My paypal link is at the bottom. You will be making a world of a difference for my small family & I. Thank you dearly.
sincerely a young struggling woman.
