I dream of being the one to make a difference in others’ lives, those that really have a need. I see this need all the time, whether it be a mother needing a car repaired, a family with no food in the cupboards or a kid with a pair of shoes handed-down that are worn out and just don’t fit. Then, there’s the Veteran, living in a car, too proud to reach out.
At this point, I find myself at the very bottom, humbly asking for help. This is one of the hardest lessons in my life, to ask, to reach out for help. I can relate to the Veteran, it is one of the hardest things to do, is to reach out and ask for help.
I am ashamed for decisions I have made to correct this massive debt, from owing the government to school loans, to maxing-out the credit cards. Mom and Dad are now gone. There is no family to ask or mentor to give me guidance. This is my last grasp to get course-corrected and off this endless wheel of debt. I am begging for help, ashamed and embarrassed.
I am reaching out to strangers begging them to consider giving me a helping hand. Recently unemployed, graduated with honors from SOU, and at age fifty-nine, the likelihood to become gainfully employed with a livable wage has become very daunting. I can understand from the employer’s perspective, they seek the younger employee. Currently, I am twelve-hundred dollars short per month just to make ends meet. I own thirty-one thousand to government, thirty thousand in school loan, and thirty-nine thousand in credit card debt. I am over my head. I cannot see a way out.
So, I ask you, I humbly beg you for help. I do need unprecedented financial assistance.
The dream is real – I want to be that secret person making a difference in the hardship’s others are enduring. Helping the Veteran’s with reasonable housing, getting additional funds to the educator’s that see these kids everyday with needs, working with the agency’s that can provide guidance to that single mother or family that is in real need. I will only be able to realize this dream to pay in forward if you can help me.
Right now, I am praying for a miracle to assist me in resolving my own personal hardship.
Would you consider helping me?
