First off, let me begin by saying I would never ask for help in such a big way unless we truly need it. I am a single mother of two incredible little boys aged 3 and 6 years old. I have been unable to properly give them the life they deserve due to financial incompetency. I have been struggling with chronic depression and anxiety as a result of growing up in a broken home. I have been struggling to keep my head above the water ever since. Despite my best efforts in trying to make a life for these boys, I somehow managed to lose everything I've ever worked for, including our own home, a car and my only source of income. It has truly been a never ending sequence of events that pop up at the worst of times, making it near impossible for me to recover from. We have been jumping between several houses since 2013, with no real place to call home. I lost my car after falling behind on the payments, which in turn led to me losing my job due to difficulties finding a ride and/or babysitting arrangements when I was able to work something out. I have resorted to finding other means of making money just to keep us afloat...things that will follow me for the rest of my life all because I was trying to what I could for my family. I'm on the verge of losing both of my boys if I can't recover from all the failed attempts that led us to where we are now. I have hit absolute rock bottom and I'm truly terrified of what may happen if I can't dig us out of this rut fast enough. Those boys are all I have, and seeing them worry about things they should never have to think about absolutely kills me. This is definitely a last resort effort to be made but it is also quite possible that this may just be the very last chance I may have to turn things around. I'm asking for $5,000 to help us get a car so I can begin working again. My plan is to purchase a van or SUV big enough for us to comfortably stay in if/when proper housing is unavailable. However, if I reach my goal and can find a reliable car for a fraction of the price, I will use the rest of the funds to put down on a place for us to stay in as long as I am able to find a stable job that will cover all the bills and expenses of living on our own. I have never used any resources like this, so I really don't know what to expect. But I can assure you, if you were kind enough to help our family in need... I will gladly send updates and take advantage of any other offers or advice you may have to give. This is my story in a nutshell...as I am afraid to give too many details that may wind up putting me in an even tougher situation... So please feel free to message me and ask me anything. All I need is a chance to someone to fully hear me out before turning the other way... I'm truly crying out to whoever will listen and possibly be able to point me in the right direction to a more secure & fulfilling life with my boys. From the bottom of my heart, I hope you can be the one to help save my family. I will take any thing you feel is going to be helpful in these dark times. Whether it be $5, 2 pennies or just a piece of advice...every little effort counts.
All my love,
