Hello. I’m a 21 year old student who just enrolled in a university. I’m gifted in music and hopefully will become an audio engineer.
I need money to move to the town where my Uni is so I can get a job to support myself. I actually had a job for a week but when I told them I’m leaving in a month, they let me go. Also no one else wants to hire me when I tell them I’ll have to move to another city in a month. Places like McDonald’s need me to sign a contract stating that I have to work there for at least 3 months.
My parents are seperated. My grandfather passed away this month and there were a lot of funeral expenses. My uncle didn’t help because he didn’t like my grandfather, so my mother had to pay for everything, but my uncle also took half of my grandfather’s furniture because “he’s his son”. I asked my mother to take a loan but she’s in debt so the banks said no.
My father tries to support me and my sister as much as he can but due to the economic crisis going on in my country, nobody is paying him for his work. Many people owe him money. On top of that, the government requires him to pay taxes for the money he never got. He’s got a lot of debt for this reason as well. When I told him I need money for the train, he gave me his last 20 bucks. It really broke my heart to see my father giving his last money to me.
I also filled up my credit card for my everyday needs and have no way of paying it back without a job or if my parents don’t give me any pocket money, which they currently can’t afford.
We’re hoping everything will be better in 2 months time. Maybe some people pay my father, maybe my grandfather’s house gets sold, but 2 months will be too late because my studies start in a month and I need to move in ASAP, before all the cheap homes are already rented out by other students.
In short, my family had money but everything happened at once, and now nobody has the money to help pay for my studies or jump-start me getting a job in the city I will be studying for the next couple of years.
$800 in total would be more than enough for my problems. I will be really grateful for any donations. Thank you in advance.
