Why I'm Trying To Raise Funds-
I am desperately trying to raise money to assist with tuition and much needed equipment for school to better myself and allow me to provide for my family.
How It Will Help-
The funds I raise will help in many ways. I am currently in need of school supplies and equipment (such as a laptop capable of running graphics/design soft wares and a Wacom Graphics Tablet) which I can in no way afford. I also have around $300 in cost to fix my recently disabled vehicle. I will receive a pell grant for tuition but it will definitely not cover what I need to pay for school so a portion will be used for tuition (I did work out a payment arrangement with Westwood College(where I go to school) but due to the fact I lost my job 4 weeks ago I am not optimistic I will be able to continually meet that obligation).
Some Background Information On Me-
My Family has been experiencing "financial hardship" for quite some time, I have always done my best to keep us above water but it hasn't been easy. I finally got a decent job that was making the cut (barely) and then 2 years ago my teenage daughter tried to end her life over a boy which put us tremendously behind as insurance did not cover the facility she was placed in. We began a downward spiral bills began to pile up and it culminated with us loosing our home and placing us in extreme debt (and a very poor credit situation). Then last year my wife's health began to fade and continues to interfere with our financial situation due to the fact she can not keep a job. So I have tried without much headway to keep us going. Four weeks ago I lost my job because of 2 reasons the first my car broke down second I missed a lot of time already due to many doctors appointments for my wife. I began to look for a job immediately but the job market is very bad currently and I have had no luck. I have applied for unemployment but it will take up to 6 weeks to get anything if I even get it. We have had to send the kids to a different state to live with family while we sort things out which was a very hard decision and has affected my wife severely. The only thing that has helped me to push through is that I am currently in school working towards a better life for us. I have to admit that I was hesitant to do this however we have exhausted all our resources getting through our hardships and there is no one left that can help us, Our only hope is the kindness of others.
Well the only thing I can offer is my sweat if you wanted it (I have no money for travle but I will do what ever I can either online or I can work locally If wanted) I would be more than willing to work for any assistance I received. I am not afraid of hard work and would do my best to return your good deed with honest hard work
