I want to start by saying thank you for taking the time to read this. I’ve been a little hesitant towards whether I should write this or even post this in general. I have a fear of people where I live seeing this and possibly judging me for asking for help on such a public platform. Well for starters I’m Abi and I am 19 years old and this would be my first time ever asking for donations or financial assistance on the internet this is my last resort. I normally wouldn’t ask for help like this because I am afraid of rejection and when I do ask for help people would not help me or support me.
Life has been very hard both financially and emotionally for my mom and I. My mom has battled seasonal/situational depression and it has affected her physical health. Since 2017 she has suffered with joint/muscle pains and pinched nerve occasionally. She would like to get an x-ray done to see what is really going on and we don’t have the money for that. My dad is doing the best he can even though that is not enough and he himself is struggling with his own emotional and physical health issues. We are up to our necks with bills being long overdue struggling to make ends meet, I have a student bill to pay off and I need to go to the dentist to get work done on one of my teeth because it has a hole and I possibly might need braces. In order to do that I would have to travel to another island to get the procedure done and yet again that calls for funds that are not available. Everything going on and how hard it has been growing up with financial issues, my parents raising a total of five of us, dysfunction in my family and my own personal hardships throughout my highschool years has me battling manic & seasonal depression and bad social anxiety. For as long as I can remember art and craft has always brought me some sort of comfort. I love art it allows me to express myself and what I am feeling safely.Art supplies and tools are very expensive and as stated before it calls for money. I would love to buy all the art and supplies tools needed to carry that out. All of this is just stressing me so much.
I want to travel for personal development and humanitarian/missionary purposes as I love to help people as best as I can and still struggle with connecting/socializing with people, but it gets better each day. To cover half the cost of what I really really really need for an x-ray for my mom, dental work needed to be done,student bill to be paid and credit card bills,and travel costs(July & October), my goal is to raise $12,000 (USD) by the end of this week or next week. That sounds vague or maybe impossible, but I have hope that maybe just maybe who knows I can get lucky. I am very appreciative when people help as best as they can. I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and reached out to people but unfortunately, they were not in positions to help and some simply did not want to help as stated in the beginning which is okay. However, I am out of options and this seems legitimate and I am just hoping and wishing that someone will feel the urge to donate out of the kindness of their heart. Whatever amount of money you can give I will be so grateful for.
Thank you again for even so much as reading this if you don’t help.
