I am writing to you with a sense of urgency and a humble request for assistance. As a single mother, life has thrown unexpected challenges my way, and I find myself in need of your support to navigate a crucial situation.
Several months ago, my children’s father encountered legal issues that led to his incarceration in a federal prison. Our lives were turned upside down. Everything was taken from us. I had a newborn baby and a box of clothes that didn’t fit me. That’s it. In the past two years, I have been able to climb my way out of the hole get us a place I have a job that I work full-time, and I am continuing every day to grow and make a better life for me and my son. I am no longer with my children’s father and since his departure I have been the sole provider for our son, and while I am committed to ensuring his well-being, I am currently facing a pressing issue that threatens our daily lives.
The car I currently have is on the verge of a breakdown. It has been a lifeline for us, facilitating my ability to manage work, childcare, and various responsibilities. However, the constant strain on this aging vehicle has taken its toll, and I fear that it may soon become unreliable.
I am reaching out to the compassionate members of our community to seek assistance in securing a new car or, at the very least, a down payment to address the impending breakdown. The thought of being without reliable transportation is daunting, and it jeopardizes my ability to provide a stable and secure environment for my son.
I understand that times are challenging for many, and the request for help weighs heavily on my heart. However, I believe in the kindness of our community and the power of collective support. Any contribution, no matter the size, will significantly impact our lives.
Your generosity will not only help us overcome an immediate crisis but will also contribute to a more sustainable and hopeful future for my son.
I appreciate your time and consideration. Thank you for being a beacon of support in our time of need.
