Hello. I hope my story finds you in good health and spirits. I am writing to you with a humble heart, seeking your support and understanding during a challenging period in my life. I am a single mother to an incredible ninth-grader. Over the years, I have done my best to provide for him, ensure his well-being, and instill in him the values of perseverance and hard work. It has always been my dream to give him the best opportunities in life, including a good education. I have invested in my own education as well by making the decision to go to college after my son was born so that I could adequately provide for him. That decision paid off and landed me a good job which I absolutely love but has left me thousands of dollars in debt due to student loans.
I have been diligently paying off my student loan debt, which currently stands at $15,000. For years, I have managed to meet my financial obligations as best as I could, often making sacrifices and working tirelessly to keep up with the payments. However, the unforeseen challenges brought about by the global pandemic as well as a motor vehicle accident and two surgeries in less than two years have placed an overwhelming burden on my shoulders and I have been struggling to keep up with the payments ever since, more specifically, in the past two years.
Between the mounting costs of rent, car payments, medical expenses, and day-to-day living, I find myself sinking deeper into debt with each passing month. The physical and emotional toll of these surgeries has been immense, and the unexpected expenses that followed the accident only compounded my financial struggles, but I persevered for the sake of my son. There are nights when I lay awake in bed and cry when my son is asleep because I don’t want him to see this weakness in me. I’m all he has, and it kills me to know that most days I don’t know where our next meal is coming from because after paying our monthly expenses, there is very little left for groceries. Some nights we eat nothing before we go to bed. Thank God for school lunches and good friends who sometimes provide a meal for us or carpool with me to save back on gas.
I am reaching out to you today with a heavy heart, hoping for your compassion and support. I believe that with a little help, I can get back on my feet, provide a secure and nurturing environment for my son, and continue to work towards a brighter future. Any contribution, no matter the size, would mean the world to us. I just need to clear this student loan balance, which is one of my biggest bills that I am struggling with at the moment.
Your kindness will enable me to alleviate the mounting student loan debt, giving me the opportunity to breathe a little easier, and focus on paying my other bills and living expenses, while I continue to provide a stable and loving home for my son. It will also allow me to continue his education without the constant burden of financial uncertainty.
I want to express my deepest gratitude for taking the time to read this letter and consider my request. Your generosity will not only be a financial lifeline but also a source of hope and inspiration for both me and my son. We are profoundly thankful for your kindness and support during this challenging chapter of our lives. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your consideration and compassion. May you be blessed with all the goodness you bring into the lives of others. Here is my link if you wish to make a contribution : paypal.me/san760613 Thank you.
