Dear people of Go Get Funding,
I am writing to you in a challenging and frightening time of need, on the behalf of my family of three - myself, partner and our 20 month old daughter. We find ourselves stuck abroad, facing a world epidemic, a crisis. Our source of income has forcefully been cut off for the time being. Until the government decides it's safe to resume.
It has been a very trying time and we have exhausted all options to make extra money and do not have family or friends who can help us, and quite honestly we are exhausted. Every day is a battle to eat and pay bills and I feel like we are losing the battle. It's scary, especially when there's a child involved. Many people are currently in this situation and when they voice their struggles they get shut down by angry retorts saying they should have had their finances in order and prepared savings. Not everyone has the luxury of saving large sums of money and my heart and prayers go out to all those who are facing the same predicament we are. We were some of the many people who didn't have savings in place when the epidemic hit. The little bit we did have is gone now.
I am not comfortable with the idea of begging but as a mother and father we have to put our pride in our pockets and ask for a helping hand. Even the smallest donation would make the world's difference.
