I hope this letter finds you well. I am reaching out to share my story and humbly request your support for a new chapter in my life—a chapter marked by resilience, transformation, and the pursuit of a brighter future for myself and my two beloved children.
My name is Tamala, and I am a single mother who made the difficult decision to flee a dangerous domestic violence situation in Texas. Seeking safety and a fresh start, I relocated to a new state with my children, leaving behind my past in search of a life free from fear and full of promise. Your support can help me achieve this dream, and I want to tell you how.
Before my move, I found myself working a 9-5 job in Human Resources, doing my best to provide for my children and create a stable environment. However, the pandemic took its toll, and my job was eliminated, leaving me at a crossroads. The need to care for my children, coupled with limited childcare options, compelled me to take a bold step—to start my own business in Business Consulting.
This decision allowed me to be present for my children’s needs while pursuing my passion for entrepreneurship. Once I left Texas in pursuit to start my life over, I found a home for my children and me. As a single mother in a rural area with limited public transportation, I often find myself walking my children to school or relying on rideshares. Unfortunately, this has caused me to miss out on, certain Dr. visits, putting my children in extracurricular activities, crucial speaking engagements, and workshops that are essential for growing my business.
I’ve overcome significant challenges to establish my business, leveraging platforms like Shopify and Stan Store to provide value to my community. However, it’s time for me to expand and take my offerings to the next level. I aim to integrate new tools like Podia to offer courses and coaching more effectively. Additionally, I wish to bring on two staff members to help me run the business and pay them fairly. To achieve this, I need a functional office space and the necessary equipment.
This brings me to the core of my request. I am in need of essential resources to empower my journey:
1. Reliable Car: A car would grant me the ability to have effective and reliable travel for my children, seize in-person opportunities, attend speaking engagements, and expand my community outreach.
2. Comfortable Furniture: Basic furniture would create a nurturing environment for my children and provide stability as we rebuild our lives.
3. Business Essentials: Integrating new tools and expanding my business infrastructure will allow me to offer enhanced services to my community.
As I rebuild my life, I am seeking to raise $150,000 and beyond to fund these crucial needs. I am also open to in-kind donations such as vehicles, business software, travel miles, home furniture, and office furniture.
Your contribution, no matter the size, will play a pivotal role in my journey toward empowerment and success. I invite you to join me in this endeavor to rewrite my story and create a better future for my children and myself. Your support will not only impact our lives but will change our lives completely and will also ripple out to the community I am committed to serving.
