Hello. First, I want to thank you for taking time to read about my financial problems. In all honesty, my financial hardship is no different than millions of other people struggling to pay bills during this pandemic. Nonetheless, my sincere gratitude for reading this letter explaining my family’s struggle and financial hardship.
I am a single father of 3 children (BGB) 17, 9, and 1 year olds. My 9 year old will be a 10 year old in 9 days. During the outbreak of this pandemic, the company I worked for closed their doors and I haven’t worked for the past 14 months. During that time, I received UC benefits, which now was brought to my attention, I received by error causing a ‘Non Fraud Overpayment”of $15,000. I requested an appeal and await hearing date.
This is truly a humbling experience and I turn for help from you as a final resort before my family is affected further. On July 13, I received past due notices from utilities, Internet provider(virtual learning for the kids) and our family vehicle and insurance, all of which are at the 3 month behind mark. Not to mention being short on rent as of July 1 for $330.
My total monthly expenses for all the above mentioned is $1500, which was no problem when income was generated. It isn’t much at all. What led me falling behind was being assaulted, abused and strangled multiple times by my ex paramour. There is a PFA ordered for 3 years and we have had no contact with her since March 2021.
Since then, it has been a struggle for me in caring and supporting 3 children on my own. I have no family to lean on for help or support. We frequent food banks once a month and government assistance with medical and FS has been helpful. I’ve reached out to every organization in the area for any sort of relief and have been denied. I’m excluded from government relief until the appeal hearing is complete and an order is placed. Currently, UC appeals are behind almost 20k claims so it doesn’t look like it will be any time soon.
My family and I truly need any amount of financial help anyone of you are willing and able and to donate. I’m aware everyone of us and our families have our own issues and there are many who are worse off I presume, I am left with no other choices to keep this train wreck of a year behind us besides to beg strangers for donations.
I can provide evidence or paperwork or whatever to prove that nothing I have written here is fabricated or a ploy. I am hoping with kind hearts and compassion and generosity amongst you all, to receive $2500-$3000 in donations. I’m embarrassed to even write that but genuinely, any amount would benefit us.
Through these tough times, we are a family of love and gratitude. We express this with each other and the universe daily. I thank you once more for taking time to hear of our story and any donations you may give. Be safe!
