I'm the type of person who never asks anyone for help. But as of right now, I have no other choice but to seek this means. Single mom, two young daughters under the age of 11, and having just recently been given two life-altering diagnoses 8 months ago, it has definitely been a huge struggle to end my and my daughters' stresses and woes. Moreso, mine.
I am currently work two different jobs - trying to get caught up again just so that we can be able to stay afloat again and as we always have - but because of everything over the course of these past 8 months, everything's crashing down, piling up, and no matter what I seem do or how hard I work to cut financial corners so we can get caught up - we can't.
About to lose the roof over our heads, not to mention that Christmas is coming up for my 2 girls, and having to not wonder when the next big grocery store visit can happen for us would be a huge blessing also.
I've already applied for state assistance and tried to obtain it, but they say that my low paying wages are disqualifying me as "getting paid too much" to receive assistance. Ironic though, because what the state considers "too much pay" is what real-life actually constitutes as "poor" and "has nothing" ...
I've spent my whole life giving back to others, paying it forward, donating money and time, and even helping to coordinate volunteer & donation efforts in different areas of the USA - And now, here I am - I'm the one who needs the charity. I love helping others, but I really hate that I'm now the one desperate for the help.
If anyone out there reading this is at all able to help me and my 2 girls, then I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Any amount, no matter how small, will help us and be such a blessing & so appreciated.
