Hello, my name is Carinna Cook. I am 19, I live in Bedfordshire and I am currently unemployed. I am in desperate need of financial assistance, I have a bill of £180 that I need to pay in 3 days, I have no food in my flat and my electric has just run over into emergency (I am on a electric meter). I have tried everything to raise this money, I have asked friends and family, I have applied for loans, I have applied for credit cards, I have sold all my electronic goods, games and DVDs. On top of all of that, since I recently lost my job due to a dispute with my manager over failure to pay me my wages, I have a phone contract to pay and I also have council tax and my share of the rent due in 6 days. The total amount that I hope to raise is £400. It may seem like a lot, but honestly it is for the necessities and so that I don not lose my home or end up in mountains of debt. If you can help me in anyway, please do, I will be forever grateful. If you could please spare a moment of your day to consider helping me then you are a fantastic person, thankyou, even if you can't donate, thankyou for taking the time to read about my plight. I am hoping that with this money I can put myself back on my feet, move on and get a new job and start supporting myself again, this is my last resort as I simply did not know where else to turn, it's incredibly embarrassing to have to ask for money, especially from strangers, but I have no choice. Thankyou again for taking the time to read this.
