I am reaching out to ask for your help. My family, including myself, my wife, and my four young boys, are currently in financial hardship. In addition to supporting my own family, I also help care for my disabled brother and my mother.
I know firsthand the challenges of growing up in poverty, as I lost my father at a young age and watched my mother struggle to make ends meet. I worked hard throughout my teens and twenties and was eventually able to start my own small business, which allowed me to provide for my family. I have always been a giving and generous person, and I made a point of donating and helping others whenever I could, especially those in need. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on my business, and we have struggled to make ends meet since then.
The current rental market in Australia makes it difficult to find affordable and suitable accommodation, and living expenses have increased dramatically. It is heartbreaking to see decades of hard work undone in a matter of months, and it is impossible for us to save enough money to relaunch my business with our current employment, which does not even provide enough to meet our weekly expenses. The stress and uncertainty of not being able to afford our basic needs has been overwhelming, and it is difficult to see a way out of this situation without help.
One of the ways that we have tried to cut costs is by withdrawing our boys from extracurricular activities. While this was a necessary decision, it has had a detrimental impact on their personality and behavior. They have lost the sense of structure and purpose that these activities provided, and we have all noticed a decline in their overall well-being.
We are in need of approximately $20,000 to cover rent and living expenses, and an additional $30,000 to restart my business. I am reaching out to ask for your help. If you have the means to donate, any amount would be greatly appreciated and would help us to afford our weekly rent and living expenses, as well as save for the future. I understand if you are unable to help at this time, but any contribution you can make would be deeply appreciated and would make a significant difference in our lives.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to reach out through this platform, and for the kindness and generosity of those who are considering making a donation. Thank you for considering our request, and for your help in supporting my family during this difficult time.
