Times are hard, I'm sure I don't have to tell any of you who read this that, but it's true. I honestly don't expect you to donate, this is sort of a last ditch effort, so go big or go home, right?
Hello, my name is Leandra, Lea for sort. I am currently eighteen years old, living with my large family of six, and I am honest and truly stuck. I know, I know, I'm still young, I've got plenty of time, but that doesn't make this any less hard. I am currently unemployed, since my last employer moved away last year, and have been trying virtually everything to get back to making some money, but to no avail. My family are up to their eyeballs in bills and debt, though they loath to admit it. My dog just had a litter of six puppies that we can't afford, we can't even afford to take her to the vet... I've got two dead front teeth that are going to fall out sometime in the foreseeable future, and I'm in the very early stages of a thyroid condition, meaning it will soon give out, and I'll have to be on medication for the rest of my life (not to mention that it also means I'm prone to depression).
All of this, and it doesn't help that I have to get my GED because I was kicked out of school (not for anything bad, I used to get sick a lot, so I transferred to Virtual School, and then I over loaded myself so I wasn't finishing my classes, so they kicked me out because of my age), my grandma has a rare form of cancer in her leg, and we can't go see her because she lives in a different state...
All in all, I'm just having a hard time keeping it together. If you donate, wow, honestly, thank you. If not, thank you anyway, for reading all of this nonsense. I hope your life is fairing better than my own.
