Hi, my name is Lyne. I'm a 43-year-old single mother of four. I once worked in one of the government agencies in my country, but my place of assignment made me non-existent in the lives of my kids. Added to that was the fact that the long-distance was one of the reasons why me and my ex grew apart from each other.
I had to prioritize my kids because they were still of tender age back then, and I couldn't pay for nannies and all that stuff. One of my kids was even involved in something tragic and really traumatic for all of us. It was then that I decided to never leave home again and stay with the kids. I was honestly at my rock bottom back then. In fact, the situation is still the same until now.
Although I am currently on a retainer by one angelic client, and the work she gives me is only really minimal, but my pay is really not enough to compensate even for our basic needs. I could not even put food on the table on some days. I DESPERATELY NEED ANOTHER JOB, but because I only have a netbook, most of the companies that I have tried to apply to rejected me.
It's the only gadget that I have for this job and it's barely even functioning. It has served its purpose after all those years. It had given us the necessary income to buy food and other school expenses.
The headset I am using for my transcription gig is an ordinary phone headset that doesn't even have a noise-canceling function. I can live with that, yes, but the problem is, I could not apply for a higher paying gig due to my lack of the necessary gadgets. I couldn't afford to buy them.
I tried approaching my family but because they all have their families to provide for as well, they simply refused to. The father of my kids is totally unreliable as well. I couldn't even get hold of him. I guess he doesn't care.
So because of this, I am here knocking on your kind hearts to help me realize this rather selfish project of mine. Please know that the main purpose of this campaign really is for me to be able to buy a reliable laptop, camera, and a noise-canceling headset for an online teaching job that I was trying to apply to. The rest of the money, if there will be some left, would be for my blog, which I have been trying to launch, but because of monthly subscriptions, I could not do it.
With your help, I will make good of it so that I can provide good enough food for my kids and save some for their education and health as well. I know for sure that I am not the only one in dire need, but please, just a dollar or two would be greatly appreciated. God bless you all.
