For as long as I can remember I have always been the one to help others even to the point that I put myself in major debt.
I have gone and done it again, the difference this time is my once secure job has now become unstable. I have gone from full time to only working 15 hours. I have spent the past month job hunting but I haven’t had very much luck. Due to COVID alot of businesses where I am have either closed their doors or have reduced their activities. I am also fighting along side thousands of unemployed people.
I have tried to get government assistance, I’ve even gone to 4 or more non profit organisations for any kind of help, only to be told ” I’m sorry you aren’t eligible” or “I’m sorry you are a New Zealand citizen, so you aren’t eligible”. I have even gone back to the people I have helped financially and asked for help only to get their backs along with the attitude of “what money, we don’t owe you anything”. I have even asked other family and friends only to be given one excuse after another.
I have been falling asleep crying this past week trying to figure out how I can pay all my bills( the loan, overdraft, money for airfares, the utilities and put food on the table for myself and my furbabies), I owe thousands alone and need thousands to just move countries.
Thank god for my boys (furchildren) I don’t know what I would have done if it wasn’t for their unconditional love and because of them I cannot give up hope. I must find a way.
This disaster was brought about because of the sudden change in my employment. I am also in the lower income bracket.
I have also just been advised my rents going up, I have tried to talk to the owners about my situation but to no avail. My pleas fell on deaf ears.
I have become seriously stressed and super worried about my situation. If I am not careful I am heading towards homelessness.
After the latest round of getting no help because of my citizenship I have become disheartened and wish to return home. But to do that, I need to clear all debts owing and booking myself and my furbabies on the next flight back home. What a happy dream that would be.
And so I turn to you, I hope you find it in your heart to help me, even a little. Every little bit helps.
Help me get back on my feet and to get myself and my furbabies back home.
May you be blessed for any philanthropic help given.
I will forever be grateful.
