Hello beautiful people!
This is the first time I have ever asked for assistance. I am grateful for you reading my post and for considering a donation to me and my situation.
I have been unemployed for over a year and underemployed for 2 years. I was working up in the Arctic but then my assignment ended over COVID. Upon my return, my tenants refused to leave my house. I am in debt of over 60K due to them not paying rent and destroying my home. I am back in my home but the repairs, the bills, and the interest on the debt I accumulated while living in Air BNBs is destroying my mental health.
I live alone with one small dog. I have sent out many resumes each week but finding employment in Canada is very different than in the States, where I am originally from. I spend hours each week writing great cover letters only to get no responses. I am well-versed in administration and finance but I think the gap in my employment, my age, and ‘the times we find ourselves in’ are making me unemployable. I have worked since I was 15 and am now in my 50s. I have never been unemployed in my life until recently. I know this is many people’s story.
I am trying to start a business, I am trying to eat less, I don’t travel anywhere and don’t got out as I cannot afford a snack out with friends. I no longer own a car and so I take public transportation.
I would be so grateful if anyone out there is able to help support me, even in the smallest way. I have lived on credit these past few years but I am running out of space on my line of credit and without a job, the bank won’t work with me.
Much love to you and yours during these difficult times and during this festive season we are upon.
