I am ashamed of where my life is at this point and how I have to reach out to others for much needed help. I have always worked and helped others in need as much as I possibly could. Now it seems that I am the one that needs others to help me.
My story begins with a divorce that I did not know how to handle, unfortunately that is the case with many. I had a good job, was able to pay rent and electricity, as well as buy food and other basic needs, but due to my divorce I started to take time off from work, which led to my termination. Now I find myself in getting evicted from my place of residence, no money to buy food, or to pay for electricity. I have been two weeks without electricity, therefore living in complete darkness. Cannot cook or charge my phone...one that I might not have for much longer. Yes, I have hit rock bottom. My employer of 16 years refuses to give me severance pay or to allow me to get unemployment, which I am still trying to fight. I will be completely homeless if I do not pay back rent by the 11th of October. You may ask what about my family...well my family have turned their backs on me, which I thought would never happen, but unfortunately, it did. Now, my only alternative is to reach out to you and ask for help. Anything that you are willing to help with is greatly appreciated, goes a long way, and counts. I know I may be asking to much, but if you find it in your heart please donate. I will pay it forward.
This money will be used to pay my past due expenses and if any one wants proof of where the money is going I will gladly provide.
Thank you for reading my story.
