Hi, I am a proud single mother with a disability and recently turned proud grandmother, both my kids and grandaughter lives with me.
My eldest is back home from another city for financial reasons to continue her university work and has been trying to find a job with no luck. My youngest is the father of my grandchild who lives with us as her mother cant cope. He has also been trying his damnest find a job with no luck either and its really having a huge impact on our mental health.
I work part time and try and get as much overtime as i can but it just isnt enough. I was only barely just about cover the rent so we have a roof over our heads, just about cover the council tax and part of the bills. Im really struggling with the rest of the bills and putting food on the table. Ive had to scrimp on the rent so bills could be paid and food could be put on the table. Its very hard and stressful trying to pay for everything myself without any help what so ever. I am now on a huge downward spiral and we could end up homeless by christmas.
I dread the thought of putting my kids and grandkid out on the street. I am not one to beg or ask for money, im usually too proud for that but i,m now in a situation (where I never dreamt I would be) and now I have to swallow my pride and give this a go. Im not asking for a huge amount, just a little to help us get by, to help us keep a roof over our heads, bills paid and food on the table for the next few months and hopefully by then my kids would hopefully have found a job and we're back on out feet and not trying not to drown under it all.
I will very much appreciate every little bit you can manage to donate (every little bit counts). Since I'm in a situation where I cannot pay anyone back, I'm a great believer in paying it forward. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and Im so very grateful for your help.
