I would like to start off by saying thank you for reading this. I know most people were affected by this pandemic. My family and I have struggled to make ends meet. I was working full-time and was the main breadwinner. My mother works part-time and my father is retired. Unfortunately in June 2020 my hours were reduced to 8 hours every 2 weeks. I had enough money saved to last me a couple of months for household expenses. I am currently in a nursing program full-time, which I should be graduating by the summer. My family and I thought it was the best option to go on a forbearance plan for our home to help us save some money and not worry about our house being foreclosed. Well, the plan didn’t go as expected and now we have a large bill of unpaid mortgage payments. It comes up to $19,685.46. I work a part-time job now but it won’t be enough to cover the entire cost. I know that once I graduate I will be able to get a good job. Having this mortgage payment paid off can help us start on a clean slate again and resume our regular mortgage payments.
My family doesn’t know that I am doing this and hurts me to even do this because I feel like it is my fault that we are in this situation. This has really been making me depressed because it’s hard to see a way out of this situation. I feel as though I have failed my parents because they have worked so hard all their lives and now they have to deal with this. Being in this situation has affected me mentally and it’s making me lose concentration in school. I am in my last semester and I would like to finish strong. I could see the finish line and know that all my hard work will be put to use to not only my family but to my community as well . If I could I would try to work 40+ hours a week but being in a nursing program is very difficult to do so. I want my family and I to get back our feet again.
Any amount donated is greatly appreciated. I hope that one day I can give back to people in need you are doing now. Thank you again.
