Hi my name is Shawn I am a male and 22 years old since I was born all my life Ive had a windfall of unfortunate events. To start it off my father was never in my life and my mother died when I was only 9 years old from a rare cancer. At 9 I ended up living with my aunt who didn’t really care much about me and was only worried about the money that she received from the government to take take care of me.Eventually my aunt disowned me completely due to lack of government funds and at 16 I was forced to live on the streets with no family or friends to help I was all alone. Things were on and off until I reached 18 then life started to look up for a change I had finally got me a good job and a one bed apartment I could call my own and I even started to build up my credit but for me good things don’t always stay good for long the company that I worked for ended up laying off hundreds of workers because the company was planning on shutting down for good and I was one of the workers that had been layed off .Now I was back to square one once again I ended up going to my local shelter they helped some and helped me get a job at the McDonald’s in my area I stayed at the shelter until i was able to save up 7 months of rent and found me a little 2 bed room house and moved my girlfriend with me (now my wife) and we’ve been living in the house ever since. September 1st 2018 I married my soulmate of 2 years (she’s now 20 years old) everything was going so great until my job ended up being under new management and they started hiring a whole lot of minor because they refused to pay the workers overtime and they started to switch up my hours I went from 9 hour shift 6 days a week to 5 hour shifts 3 days every two weeks. Getting my hours reduced put me in a very bad spot and it felt my life was falling apart all over again I had no choice but to dip in my savings to pay my bills and pay for my wife’s college. She is currently enrolled in Delta college and is working towards being a obgyn but the bad things didn’t stop there now my savings are almost empty I would say I only have a month left before I have no more funds in my bank account and right now I barely make enough to pay half of my rent. Once next month hits i don’t know how I’m going to be able to afford anything and the town that I live in its very small and it’s very hard to get a job unless you know somebody that’s works there’s that can vouch for you even in fastfood but I’ve recently was offered a job out of state that’s could turn my whole life around but the job doesn’t start to the beginning of may . I haven’t told my wife about what’s going on she is a fulltime student and I don’t want to worry her about our financial issues while she’s going through school. My goal was to raise $6,000 to stretch us until i can start my new job but any donation that you can give even if it’s 5 dollars it will be very appreciated. I am a very humble and down to earth person who has helped a lot of people that needed help when I could help. All I’m asking if you all could find it in your hearts to help me and my wife in our time of need. I love my wife so much I don’t ever want her to go through any of the things I went through even if that means putting all the weight on my shoulders im certain she would do the same for me. Please can you help us?
God Bless You All.
