My name is Ben, I am going to be completely honest, I am not thrilled with the idea of posting here. While I think it is absolutely acceptable to ask for help when needed, I do my best to fulfill my responsibilities and take care of myself. That being said, I am not in an ideal situation.
Here is my current situation. Back in May of this year, I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in HR management. During my time in school, I was also working full-time in a warehouse. At the end of June, I was about to buy a new car, because while my current car is still running, I can see the writing on the wall. It will not last for much longer. It is well past its life expectancy. Before I could buy a new car, I was laid off from my job, due to work slowdowns and rising shipping costs.
After this, I immediately started applying to HR positions to start my new career path. After 2 months of applying, I haven’t even received a phone call. It has been a little discouraging, to say the least, but I am not letting it get me down. Just this past week, however, I got a job in another warehouse. However, it is only part-time. So by the time I build my finances back, I will be in hot water.
The car situation doesn’t only affect me, but I am also the main form of transportation for my legally blind Sister.
I am also trying to launch my own Etsy store, as well as doing other side gigs to make money, but all of this will take time. So If you could find it in your heart to help out I would be extremely grateful! If I could raise $12.000 that should be enough to get a good quality vehicle.
Thank you in advance for your kindness!
