I am working at 1 full time position as a line worker, and 2 part time sales positions and I am still struggling to get out of debt. I am lucky that I can type this at work on break; otherwise I would not have the time to ask for help.
I never thought I would beg; but I am hurting and so is my family. I am doing my very best to keep it together. My parents went through a bankruptcy and lost everything but the home because my step dad ended up in prison for a DUI. I am trying to keep up with my parents house & utilities as well as my own because I live way too far away from them to be able to live with them.
Also I dropped out of college in 2015 when my step dad first went to prison, in order to begin working at multiple jobs. When I dropped out of school I lost my financial aide and ended up owing the school $4935.00 which ended up in collections because I was unable to pay it.
I have maxed out the number of loans and credit cards I can get to keep the electricity on for my mom and little brother that live in Idaho. I was in Oklahoma when this happened and working full time already. I just took on 2 more jobs in order to take care of myself a little too. I don’t smoke, I’ve never done drugs, I just was about to finish college and I can’t abandon my family no matter how far I live from them.
Therefore; I am begging you to help me and my family get out of this situation so that I can go back to school and my mom can take care of my little brother without worrying about feeding him, but about what shirt to get him for a new school year. The total debt that we are in right now because we took out loans and credit cards to pay mortgage, rent, utilities, and buy food, and clothing is roughly $58,000
My monthly bills that I am taking responsibility for is $3200.
I have been using the Earnin app and Speedy Cash to keep up with these bills because most of the time I don’t have enough money by the time the bill is due and I’ve ended up in this vicious circle of paying them and renewing them over and over.
If you do donate please give me your email address so I can properly thank you and keep in touch for when I finish my engineering degree and start getting ahead to give back.
Thank you so much for reading this entire message if you made it through. <3
