This random act of kindness is sought out by a desperate mother wanting to buy a home for my child and my soon to be child. Now you may be wondering, why are you asking for money. Welp, the first reason is my child who happens to be a teenager and constantly asks why we don’t live in a house like his friends. Though my answer only satisfies him temporarily, I continue to get asked the same question throughout the years. Now to discuss the soon to be child, she happens to be my best friend’s (now deceased) daughter. She lost both her parents, father in 2013 and mother in 2017. She currently lives with her grandmother whom is getting up there in age and has asked for me to take over. I’m trying to buy a home to give her some stability.
The second reason is this large sum on by back called student loans. I didn’t grow up with much so when I started college I took out student loans when it wasn’t necessary. However, I only saw an opportunity to have money in my pockets and to help my mother (father died in 1993). I did what most people do and look only in the present and not the future. Moving forward, I continued to go to school not knowing what I wanted to do but knew I wanted to be SOMEONE. This continued to eat up grants, thus, it wasn’t available when I found what I wanted to be and student loans needed to be taken out for that purpose. Went to school and finally graduated with an Associate’s degree. Moving forward again, I went to school to be a Registered Nurse. As mentioned earlier, I utilized all the grant money New York State had to offered so I RACKED up a ton of student loans. The rest was racked up obtaining a Master’s degree (one more semester to go).
Though I make good enough money as a single parent, I’m denied the chance to own a home due to my student loans. This is my plea for help to pay student loans. I racked up a good 140k. Please understand, I would be forever grateful for any amount.
