PLEASE Help us Start Over

Update posted by Raven Marlett On Jan 28, 2020

I am beyond excited to be finally moving into our house after being homeless for 7 1/2 months. For a month of that time, we knew we had a house, but was waiting for the occupants to move out of it. During that wait, I was diagnosed with a severe middle ear infection, and haven’t been able to get rid of it after 6 antibiotics. The infection is spreading, so I haven’t been able to work at all for the last three weeks. Since I’m on disability and a single mom, it makes for a very limited budget. So, I was spending money for our AirBNB, food, gas and hotel. And when we were wrongly evicted 7 1/2 months ago, we lost EVERYTHING!

I am so blessed to be having some items donated to us, so we can start over, but we are in urgent need of BEDS and bedding by Friday, January 31st, 2020. As, that is our last day in our AirBNB. We are URGENTLY asking for your HELP! GoGetFunding allows donations as low as one dollar. So, if we can get several people to DONATE a few dollars or more. I can go out and get us beds. Please also continue to pray, as we need them more than you know. God Bless you and please consider donating.

**Fees are extremely small, as I only pay GoGetFunding $0.80 per $20 donated

So excited, and stressed at the same time. I’ve had to use my disability money this month for our AirBNB, brakes, food and Gas. I haven’t worked for two weeks, due to issues with my car and still fighting this severe middle ear infection. On top of it, Jessyka brought home a virus and all three of us got sick for about a week. I’ve had this infection for over 6 weeks now and six different antibiotics. I have been referred to an ENT as my doctor has given up on antibiotics that aren’t working.

But, we can’t find an ENT in Tallahassee that takes my insurance. Positives are that I signed my lease in December and we finally can move in January 31st. I don’t have much to move in, and still need so much for the house. I also have Internet set up to be installed on the 31st, still need $69 before I can schedule the electric/water to be turned on in my name. I’m having bad episodes of vertigo due to my infection and have zero energy, so I’m sleeping a lot.

Praying I can start getting caught up on Minky and Weighted Blankets for customers, after we move in and start to get Valentines Day and St. Patrick’s Day products made up to sell. If you are needing a blanket, Scrunchies, weighted products or weighted blankets, please contact me to order. Another plus, is that I should get my Tax Refund in by the end of February, so I can replace my car that is falling apart. I’m so blessed for all of the support on Facebook, but asking if you could share my story and or donate. GoGetFunding allows donations as low as $1 and if several people could donate a few dollars, it would add up and help me out. Still struggling a bit, but hope to be back on my feet ASAP and make 2020 the best year ever! God Bless you all and prayers are also welcomed

So, I’m trying to get prepared to move into our new home and have been checking how to get Electric, Water, Trash and Internet into my name for our January 31st, 2020 move in date. Went to City of Tallahassee utilities and found out my deposit is $240 for Water and Electric. Trash is $160, as my last landlord screwed up my account. Haven’t contacted Redwire yet, but that is on my to do list for Tuesday, as Monday is MTKJr Day! I’m severely needing help with these costs, as I have been so very sick with this middle ear infection, for almost 6 weeks now and unable to work. I should have my first months rent of $750 covered from my disability money. Getting excited, but still need beds, dishes, a couch and food. Praying for help, as I don’t get my tax refund until the end of February 2020. Asking for prayers and donations. God Bless

Been really busy lately trying to keep my daughters healthy, trying to catch up on sewing orders and getting ready for our churches “Tallahassee Christmas Pageant”. Jasmine and I sing in the Christmas pageant and have had practices, rehearsals and performances for the past week. We had two performances yesterday and have one last one tonight. It has made it impossible for me to work for DoorDash and make hotel and food money. I was lucky to get a schedule for today, but Monday’s are really hard to get orders, as we are over saturated here in Tallahassee. Asking for prayers and donations, as we don’t have the money for today’s hotel room. Jessyka is at school and Jasmine and I are currently waiting to be shown a house. It is small and not in the best neighborhood, but getting desperate! Can anyone help with $96 for hotel room in the next 2 hours? There is no way I can make that in two hours. Down on my sore tired knees, begging for your help. We have now been homeless for 6 months at the end of this week. Prayers are also welcomed. God Bless

When we got wrongly evicted in June, we didn’t think we would be homeless still when winter hit. So we lost all of our warm clothes and jackets. It is now freezing and we are in dire need of warm clothes and jackets. Please consider donating, so we don’t freeze! Still looking for housing, but since I’m paying for hotels and food, can’t save money for deposit or first months rent. Prayers would be amazing as well! God bless

I wanted to thank those of you that helped me yesterday and a wonderful gift I received last night! I am so very blessed with the friends and strangers that have helped by donating or sharing my story/campaign. I don’t wish this on anyone, as I feel inadequate for my daughters, and disappointment in myself.

I’m killing myself every day to keep us in hotels and food in the girls stomachs, to the point of getting so sick that I’m unable to get out of bed. I have now been sick in bed for three days and feel worse each morning when my alarm goes off. I would prefer to be sewing blanket orders or out and about driving for DoorDash. But, I’m learning that if I don’t take care of myself, then I can’t take care of my girls as they deserve.

So, can I ask you all to continue to share, pray and donate (if you can)? You all have been a blessing and I truly appreciate all the prayers. Anything helps and I love you all so much! God Bless!

URGENT....PLEASE HELP and PRAY

On my hotel bed, with pounding migraine, burning stomach, entire body in excruciating pain, shaking from chills and trying not to puke.

Typing through squinting eyes and begging for help!! Check out for my hotel is in 30 minutes and all I have is $45. I need $40 more to pay for today’s hotel, so I can sleep and hopefully feel better to work tomorrow.

I’m begging for any help. I can get money through Facebook messenger, PayPal @ [email protected] , PayPal.me/JessykasMinkyDreams , Venmo @ Raven-Marlett or the campaign listed below. They are all directed into my same debit card account. Bless all of you, and please share, if you are unable to help with money.

I woke up coughing really bad, my voice is nearly gone and my whole body feels like someone beat me up. I’m supposed to go out to work and was hoping Child Support would come today, but nothing is there and I’m now sick with my girls. Is there anyone that can help me pay for the hotel today? We all need rest and medicine. Asking for prayers and help if you can! God Bless!

I’ve only received two donations so far, but I’m completely blessed, for your help. Things have gone from bad to worse as I didn’t get any state aid (cash/food stamps) this month and they have me cut off for next month as well. They say that I’m making too much money with DoorDash. They aren’t putting into account that, every dime I make goes into Hotel, food and gas. Now I am extremely sick and we had to check out of the hotel. We have no money and nowhere to go. I just want to get rid of this 101.7 fever, chills, sweating, exhaustion and nausea. Jessyka got sick first, but she seems to be starting to feel better. I can’t work, as not only am I too weak, but I handle people’s food, so it’s a health hazard. I just want to get better and back to work. If anyone can help with hotel for a few days. We really liked the Sleep Inn, the last couple of days, here in Tallahassee and hated having to check out.
