Hi I’m Daniella from Brazil, thank you for being here. I opened this fundraiser cause as so many others, my job, my financial life got affected by COVID-19 crisis.
I used to have a car for almost 12 years, it was from 2007 but it was mine, all paid. I was in debit with my bank account and paying an amount monthly for bank overdrafts, I sold my car in a very low price, to pay the bank and then buy another one. I couldn’t buy a 2019 or 2020 model so in 2019 July I got that C3/2012.
Paid the bank and started making extra hours in my job to receive more money to help me paying the car but i would never imagine that Covid-19 would happen a year later. Devastating families and turning everything into a chaos.
My mom doesn’t drive, her car license isn’t renewed for so long and my auntie has some Mental disorders and also she doesn’t walk long distances and her family is me and my mom.
We take her to her psychiatrist, to the doctors, to the pharmacies to get her medicines on my car. I was working for 1pm till 10pm. The pandemia started in March. I work in a school here in Brazil and we had to close it, so no more extras also my boss tried to keep our salaries in order but it was almost impossible.
Home office, also the students got 25% as a discount on their monthly payments to help and being a motivation to don’t stop the new era as virtual classes. As expected we lost some students and here in Brazil the companies have an opportunity to suspend the contracts and the government is paying a monthly fee to everyone who got suspended and unfortunately I got suspended.
The payment I get from the government isn’t enough to pay my bills and absolutely impossible to pay my car. I’ve been using credit cards to pay it postponing debits and it’s creating a huge emotional disaster to me. My car is a dream and is also the unique thing that I got in my whole life but isn’t fully paid yet and every single month I have to choose which bills I will pay cause if I don’t pay the car the bank will take it from me. So I’m here with all my love, honesty waiting for a miracle to happen in my life. I’m selling my stuff in a website, selling clothes, bags, shirts and everything that can interest someone. Selling my bracelets, necklaces and even tried to sell my sweet fifteen ring that my dad gave to me and it’s painful but I look for things everyday to sell online but after may, June people also stopped to buy as before cause we are having a huge economic crisis here in Brazil.
Organizing my bills willl help me keep my car, help my mom and help my auntie. My bro’s family also live with us and my bro, his wife, my niece and my nephew share the same room and I wish from the bottom of my soul that I would love to help them too. Now they aren’t going to the school cause of Covid, they are having virtual classes but when the school starts, it’s me that pick them and bring back home every single day.
I deal with anxiety and take medicine daily and it’s been really hard BUT I try my best to keep myself positive and I pray everyday for better days and I believe that we will go through it together and stronger. If my history touched your heart and you help me, I want to thank you already. God bless everyone, take care please, be safe. Love, Dani
