I never thought I’d end up here, I’m usually not the one to ask people for help. Usually, I am the one doing the helping, and I’m praying that one day I’ll be blessed with good karma. Earlier this year I lost my job due to the company downsizing and at first, I had a great backup plan, I was going to work on starting up a crafting business to start doing what I loved to do. While working UberEats, I even picked up a 2nd Part time job as a Dasher! Things were going great. Until they weren’t.
With the prices of gas getting higher and higher, it made doing Uber and DoorDash a bit of a waste. I was practically only earning enough to be able to replace the gas used for the day. That’s when things started downhill fast. I eventually started driving around on fumes, The income I was making from my Custom Crafts project and the majority of my orders were all family orders and of course, came with a family discount (which I have Regretted). As with every business, I know there are always going to be ups and downs. I am trying to grow my business into something substantial, but without the materials to keep products coming It’s a bit hard. These past few months I’ve been scraping by doing surveys and side gigs, being a local dog walker with WAG! all while doing anything and everything I can do from my phone/laptop just to make a few bucks to make ends meet.
With a bit of time, plenty of praying, and help from my neighbor, I was finally able to get a PC set up so that I can work from home. After countless weeks of applying for remote jobs, and going through interviews only to have them tell me “We’ve found someone more qualified”, I did manage to score a position and I am currently in the training process with a company that I am excited to be servicing for! I’m so close to being back on track if only I had found out that Training was going to be paid before I accepted the job…but with me officially being out of gas, so many bills piling up, the Emergency Funds Jar growing cobwebs, I had no other choice… I couldn’t turn down an opportunity.
And That is where this request comes in. My first paycheck won’t technically be paid, until the 15th of August. With no gas to drive, and no extra funds for Car insurance I haven’t been able to pay my premiums. Now if I cant get my Car Insurance Re-instated by next week then I’ll have my license suspended. On top of that, My electricity wasn’t paid this month, if I lose my electricity then I lose my job, and without my license, I won’t have a backup plan… I’m so close to being okay again, but I’m not strong enough to do it on my own. So here I am Praying, Asking, and Begging for any help at all. I just need a little help getting past this next month. Will you help me get back on track, please? I expect to only need around 300 to get bills back on track, the Car insured and filled with gas. At least then I can go back to doing Uber until payday arrives.
I appreciate the time you took to read this and pray that good karma visits you as well one day!
Thank you so much and be blessed!
