Hey everybody! My name is Oscar and i want to help my girlfriend Katherine get through a financial rough patch.
Kathy is a sweet girl that has had a rough life. Since she was a child she’s been through abusive parental/guardian relations over and over. First her dad, then her grandparents, and now her mom. She’s had to rought it out her whole life, and figure a LOT of things by herself. Nowadays she’s studying Journalism, a career she loves! She dreams of being a reporter someday and creating her own newspaper.
Right now she’s living at her mother’s house (alongside her grandma, brother, and a few other relatives), her mother lives in the US (Kathy lives in El Salvador), and she’s been living there since she literally ran away from her abusive grandparents house. Her mother promised she’d repay the years of neglect and give her a full ride through uni on a private university even though Kathy wanted to study at a public one to avoid paying high monthly fees and the like, however her mother insisted that she would pay for everything and made her choose a private one. Now her mother has stopped paying for it and left Kathy in an ugly spot since they had a fallout (Kathy’s mom wanted to have a tight relationship with her, she wanted to force one and she can’t comprehend that’s not as easy when you’ve neglected your child for almost TWO DECADES, so they had a fight and her mom said she wouldn’t pay her student fees anymore). Right now Kathy’s surviving on his father’s pension (or however it’s called) since she took him to court and he’s now mandated to give her money each month. However, that money ($125) is not enough to pay the monthly fees ($65), enrollment ($160 each six months), personal hygiene products, food, etc. So she’s having a real hard time. Jobs are hard to come by in this country, she’s had a few but all of them were seasonal, right now she’s jobless but studying english so she can apply for a job at a call center (and she’s still applying to any job she can find online). We’ve budgeted all the money she has + whatever she should receive from her father and in theory she can make it (although living in really MINIMAL conditions). I help her with some money every now and then but that doesn’t suffice either.
She’s specially had a real bad time recently, experiencing some bad thoughts, and just being depressed overall. Life has been unfair to her, we’re working to help her get out of that hole, it’ll take some time but i’m sure we’ll make it. I just want to give her an extra push to get her through this year since next year she should be able to get a job at a callcenter and have a steady flow of cash going (+ me helping her out too!).
She could really use the help and i’d document where every penny goes to with receipts of payment, enrollment, etc. All the money would go towards her education and would really help her get on her feet until she can get a steady job.
Money would be sent to my PayPal which is: paypal.me/OAyala16. In my country you can’t withdraw or pay a lot of stuff directly through PayPal so i’d have to use a third party to withdraw it (they take about 10% comission) and as i said, we’d document where every single penny goes to.
BTW: Post is written and worded in a weird way because i originally created an “airfunding” post for it, after googling a bit the page has mixed reviews so i decided to create a post here instead (i’d use gofundme but it doesn’t include my country so i’d probably have problems withdrawing the money if it was even possible).
Thanks if you’ve read all the way through here! We would really appreciate it if you donated whatever you can. She doesn’t know i’m setting this up so i’m hoping it’ll be an amazing suprise.
If you can share this i would be extremely grateful with you! Thanks in advance to everyone who read this far, i really hope we can help Kathy out!
