Hello Sir or Madam,
I am writing this letter to ask for help with rent and bills. Why choose me, when there are many others out there who are in need for help? Well, if I’m being honest, I am not sure why I should get chosen in the first place. I had a car to drive and a job to earn money at, but I unfortunately left my job as I was being mistreated after coming back to work since our lockdown ended in Texas on May 1st (I did not return until June 1st because I wanted to take precautions). The place I worked at did not take covid seriously, as most employees did not wear a mask or would even say things such as, “This is a joke.” A couple of their employees had tested positive for covid as well but the establishment refused to close for 2 weeks (even tho they were required to). I have had money thrown at me when it was rightfully mine (I actually asked the person who kept it to share, instead of getting mad at him as I considered him my friend). However, he got upset with me for deciding to stay home during a pandemic. So, because of that, I decided to leave my job and pursue a new career. I have always been interested in the real estate industry so I applied at an apartment locating company and was hired after doing a few online interviews with them. I was overjoyed until.. I found out I have to get my real estate license first. That did not stop me from being motivated though, I am now taking my online classes and studying for at least 3-4 hours a day. In June, something tragic happened and my friends and I lost someone dear to us (not covid related). She was only 5 years old and this broke our hearts completely. I took a break from studying to be present for my friends. The whole incident actually inspired me to start a little business: tie dying and embroidering. I have been tie dying sweatshirts/jogger sets for my friends who were close to the young girl who passed, and I would embroider (by hand) a writing that she wrote: “I feel brave.” The new hobby has been therapeutic for the most part and has kept me busy as I stay at home. I did apply at a few places to get more experience in a different field but I have not had luck with finding a job. I did not wanna go back to the restaurant business to devote 45-50 hours of my time to a place that did not appreciate me. I decided to concentrate on studying, my side business as well as taking care of my two loving dogs. My boyfriend and I barely had time to spend with them since we worked so often before the pandemic. About a month ago, I decided to try DoorDashing as it was a job that was flexible for my schedule. I was really excited to have something to keep me occupied on the side as well as a job that lets me be out and about. BUT! Bad luck loves to follow me some times and my car ended up breaking down after a week of DoorDashing. I still do if a few times a week while borrowing my boyfriend’s car but unfortunately, his car isn’t in the best condition either. Also, I recently had to get one of my dog’s teeth deep cleaned (about $700, including general exam) so that really put a strain in my wallet. I’m afraid I’ll be behind on rent and/or bills this upcoming month. I planned a date night for my boyfriend and I tomorrow because he has been working 6 day shifts (at least 10-11 hours a day) and this is the first week in awhile he’s getting 2 days off. He wants to pay for things for me but I also feel guilty as he’s been working so hard and need a day to relax & have fun. His birthday is coming up next month as well and I’m afraid I would not be able to give him a nice gift as I usually do. I still feel bad even when he tells me to not worry about it. I know it may sound a lot but if I could get at least $1,500 to get through next month, it would mean so much to me. I hope my letter catches your attention and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Thank you in advance.
