hello, i’m an 18-year-old student in college in need of money. i may not be able to afford textbooks and supplies for my classes next semester, which is soon. my family is very poor and we are struggling to keep up with the tuition fees as well. this new chapter in my life is taking a toll on my mother’s daily life. she lost her job recently, so she is struggling to help me pay my fees. we also barely have food at the house and we struggle to find something to eat at times. another thing that is keeping my family and i poor is that my mother is behind on rent, so when she does have money, she has to spend most of it so we can stay in the house. furthermore, my mom and her boyfriend both have jobs that don’t pay well. two of their wages together make enough just to scrape by. i have also had a job before and i got fired due to the place shutting down. i have been job hunting in the past few months, but have had no luck whatsoever. something else that is hurting my ability to pay for college is my car insurance. it is very expensive and it’s getting hard to keep my car. it would be amazing if i got funded for this. i would be truly grateful if you all helped because you would be helping me become a fine arts major, which has been a lifelong dream of mine. i have loved art ever since i was seven years old. i one day plan on becoming an illustrator and animator. one other thing that funding my college will do is helping me save more of my mom’s money to put food on the table. since she’s been trying to help me with my fees and recently got fired, she is not able to get as many groceries. your donation would percent us from going into poverty. my goal is to get $1,000 to pay for it all, although i would definitely would appreciate more. once again, thank you for taking the time to read this, everyone. you’re not just donating money, you’re helping me shape myself into the best version of me and be able to thrive. in the future, i will look back and remember what these donations did for me. thank you so much.
