I know I may seem too desperate to start this funding page, but I hope y'all see it.
My family is from the Philippines. Before the pandemic, we're struggling financially, but we're able to make ends meet. My father, mother, brother and me is working before the pandemic.
Days before lockdown happened in the Ph, I resigned on my job since I would like to find different opportunities or company, and to also look for a job that provides higher salary. Without knowing that Covid was around the corner and everything like this would happen.
When the lockdown started, my parents weren't able to go to work, my family doesn't have money to get through the next weeks expecting that lockdown would only last for a month. I did save money on my bank account while I was working, but they we're spent on our food for the weeks during lockdown.
During lockdown, I was trying to look for job, but I wasn't able to receive any feedbacks from the companies. Luckily, my mother's client was also helping us during peak of lockdown by sending foods to us. But it stop since he realized that he's spending to much while also helping other people. But we admire him since in a short span of time, he's able to help us.
You may blame me saying that I shouldn't quit my job, that I should've saved more. But everything was unexpected, we never thought that a pandemic would happen.
I am still looking for a job right now. But had problems since we are unable to pay for our electricity and water bills for almost a year. During lockdown, my mother is also trying to owe money from different people until she realized that it was too much and we can no longer pay for them since they don't have money, and we all don't have work to pay for it.
As no one was calling me for a job these past few months, I am trying to look for new things like discovering that I can do art (Vexel art), I was starting to learn it and will plan to also accept commissions from anyone if I can but may take time to take and do them all since I am a newbie.
2020 was a terrible year for our family, and I am starting to feel that 2021 is the same too. This year has only started but it is started to taking a toll on our health. There comes a time that anyone on our family will be sick, I am getting sick sometimes too.
I might be desperate for doing this, but it is better to be like this than to scam other people, sell myself to do bad and immoral stuff, right? I'll never do that.
I hope you'll help me and my family to get through all of this. Thank you so much!
