Iv’e never done anything like this before and haven’t heard of this site until today. I googled “who can I ask for money in an emergency?” and a site popped up with different links to beg for money. This is really digging into my pride but I wouldn’t ask if I wasn’t in dire need.
My husband and I were recently blessed with our second son in July. The very month our bundle of joy was brought into our lives, our financial life took a plunge down the deep end. My husband had fallen behind on work because his previous employer had taken the profits from a job they were working on together for himself and left my husband high and dry without a contract, the biggest mistake that could’ve been made yet we learned our lessons from. I have been relying on accumulating $10 insurance gift cards, from taking our son to frequent check-ups, to buy diapers and wipes. I have been doing surveys online, using money making sites (that just doesn’t do anything for us at all), I have sold our stuff on Facebook and at pawn shops, I have even tried taking up courier driving jobs to help with bills in my spare time (full time stay at home mom over here with two boys and no family in town to watch the kids). Our bills, of course, hadn’t stopped and now our bank is -$856.72. This has all happened in just one week of missed work. He has of course picked up a new job, but now we’re behind. Every paycheck goes straight into the bank to pay all of our late fees and missed payments, then it’s the same thing the next week. Things are slowly getting worse with accumulating bank fees and if we only had $1000 to get our bank back in the positives, we could work our way back up and put our bank back in good standing. Anything at this point will help. I have taken off debit card coverage, and stopped all automatic payments and even tried calling all of my providers to try and postpone any payments. I don’t know how else to ask… please help us before we loose this roof over our heads…
