I was laid-off from my position as Senior Systems Administrator January 2017. Worst, the company has not given me my government mandated 13th month pay last December of 2016 and is also holding my last pay. I have already submitted a report to the Department of Labor but it is taking some time.
I have also been trying to find another job, but so far the odds are not to my favor.
I have already used up all of our savings during these past 5 months. And have been in debt with friends and relatives, all of which have been slowly distancing themselves from me right now. I am at the end of my rope, if not for my kids and wife, I would have already succumbed to depression and would have eventually given up.
I am not doing this for my own, but for my kids, three of them to be exact. I just need to make it through this month of May since by mid-June I will be starting a new journey with a new company.
For all of you kind friends and strangers alike, I am asking if you can spare a few dollars. We don't need much, just 600 USD. The electricity company would be cutting our power come 20th of May, and the kids have not eaten any nutritious food since 1st of May. The kids are also stopping with school because of lack of funds.
This small amount would definitely be able to see us through the month of May, and would be a game changer since this would help our family be more stable. The funds would go to the children's food, and items for their personal hygiene.
It may not really be appropriate that I have turned to crowd funding, but I am really out of options, thus I am appealing to your kindness and generosity. I have been always a giver, and would of course be doing a pay-it-forward.
I thank all of you who have always been there, and those who have helped me. Prayers are also welcome.
May God Bless you for your kindness.
