Help Dane and Dave save up for their own home.
Dane(age 19) and her little brother Dave(age 11), are both responsible, and very wise children. They are my fiance's far relative and neighbor before we moved together.
Back in 2017 we reconnected with Dane and we found out that their family was falling apart. Their parents spit because they found out that their dad was having an affair and he left them for good(He now lives with his new partner in a different country). Now, their only source of income is their mother(age 44), a high school and college teacher.
Late 2017, Dane and Dave found out that their mother was having a relationship with a man that is also working as an educator from a different school. They had no problem with their mother trying to find love again, but what really bothered them is that their mom, told them to call her "Tita(Aunt)" from that moment on, in public places and at home even if they're the only ones there. The mother's boyfriend knew Dane and Dave as "Mga pamangkin(Niece/Nephew)"
Early 2018, Their mother and her boyfriend broke up because her boyfriend found out that she lied and told him they were her niece and nephew from her older sister(Fact: She does not have an older sister.). A few months later, Dane went home coming from school and saw a young-looking guy at their house,with their mom. With Dane thinking that he's another boyfriend, that was the time that Dane has had enough of it, but she dismissed it because she couldn't do anything about it. A few days later, after her classes, while waiting for a ride going home he saw that young-looking guy again, but this time he was wearing a high school uniform, from the same school where her mother was teaching. By the time she went home and saw her mother, she confronted her and asked if she was dating her student. Her mother pulled her into her bedroom, locked the doors and told her that she was dating her student younger than Dane, he's 17 years old, the mother is 44.Her mother also told her not to tell anyone or she'll evict them from the house. It went on for months.
Christmas 2018, their mother told Dane to come with her to go grocery shopping. Dane was surprised because her mother bought a lot of food. After grocery shopping, they went back home only to find out that all the groceries she bought was for the boyfriend's family and nothing for them. Their mother told them that she will be spending Christmas with her boyfriend's family in a different part of the city. They had nothing to celebrate last Christmas, all they had was each other's company. Dane always complains how much their mom spends on her boyfriends but barely on them. As a matter of fact she's never able to save anything for herself, even for a cheap meal during lunch at school. Her allowance is 50PHP a day, and is barely enough for her transportation.
January 2019, A co-teacher of their mother saw the teenage boyfriend and the mom together in the shopping mall. She then lost her job recently, and now struggling financially. This resulted in her even taking Dane's own personal savings that she saved up from her birthday gifts for a long-planned trip she wanted to take to get a breather away from the stress she receives in her own home. Recently, her mother asked Dane, to come with her to pawn some items because she couldn't afford the tuition fees anymore and is planning to make Dane and Dave stop schooling.
Their mother broke up with the minor because they were caught, but is now dating another man, around his 20's. All we ask is for you to understand that we're doing these children for the sake of their sanity.
Dave, at a young age of 11, is already having thoughts of jumping from the balcony, losing interest in school and having stressful situations that a young boy cannot handle or even understand fully yet.
Dane, is carrying this as an older sister and is also struggling with balancing studies and protecting her little brother.
A little amount is already very helpful. Any donation will do.
