Hello. I came across this information a few days ago through a youtuber. I found out there are many kind strangers who are willing to help those in need. This is something I would never do but at this time, I have absolutely no energy left. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. I am an Ojibway Indigenous (Native American) woman living alone for the past 19 years. Recently, my life drastically changed with the recent loss of my 26 year old daughter in Feb 2023. This was very difficult especially after losing another daughter at the age of 25 in 2014. I basically lost my entire family, my Mom died in 2019, my Dad died in 2015, my brother in 2018, my sister 2022, my aunt who was like a Mother to me and two days ago a man who adopted me as his daughter just passed. All these were the ones who supported and helped me when I needed help. I was doing well and managing up until this point in my life. This turn of life events completely turned my world upside down. I am currently on long term disability to deal with my loss but more importantly seeking guardianship of my grandchildren who were left behind and are presently under the Child and Family Services system in Manitoba. This crisis has drastically shifted my financial situation to the point of not being able to manage my monthly bills, pay my daughter’s funeral costs or afford a lawyer for the upcoming court hearing about the children. I absolutely do not trust the Child and Family Services system due to past situations concerning my first daughter’s passing. I have nowhere to turn. I’ve always been the type of individual who had massive strength and determination to persevere through anything but now I am so lost in this dark hole. The grief, and fact that I have nothing to fall back on is consuming me with worry. My ex-husband who I battled with for the last 18 years took my retirement savings and used it to travel. He is also the person who chose to take the matter of our grandchildren to court because he wanted sole guardianship for financial reasons. He’s been struggling with alcohol addiction for many years which is why we are no longer married. Its a mess! I do my very best to live my life in a good way with no addictions to drugs, alcohol or prescription meds. I always do my best to help others in anyway that I can. I pray everyday. This is a prayer request that I am sending out for any financial help to get me through to pay my bills monthly, my rent, to feed my children, grandchildren, to pay for the funeral costs of my daughter and what is left owing for my Moms funeral and to afford a lawyer. I don’t know what to ask in amount. I will gladly accept any help that comes in any way. Thank you so much for listening to my story and I am hopeful someone will read and send some blessings my way. firstname.lastname@example.org
The request is to include my paypal link. I don’t know how to do that but I do have the above email address that is linked to my paypal. I am not sure about how this all works.
