My name is Ryan Kelly, i am 25 years young and my girlfriend, meagan leader, 29 years young, recently moved from Long Island, New York to Hickory, North Carolina to start a life for ourselves. We have been living with her best friend until they kicked us out for making coffee at 6:00pm on a Saturday, November 8th, 2014. Yes, they kicked us out because we made coffee. I wish this was a joke, sadly, it is not. After getting kicked out for the obsurd reason, My girlfriend and i have been homeless in a town we have hardly any idea how to get around in. We both recently accepted job offers at walmart in hickory north carolina. Due to carelessness of an employee doing drug screening, they have alerted me that we have yet to go for the screening and that we went for together on the 18th of november. Going back and forth to walmart, searching job after job after job, trying to find our results that are most definitly a passing result, we were notified that due to the neglect of customers from a certain East Green Company, we are now not eligable for rehire for a year from the mistake that the company has made on their part. We continue to live in the car we both own, cold, tired, and unbelievably hungry. I am writing this from a public wifi hotspot. It is now november 25, 2014. and we have yet to recieve a job offer or even an opportunity for an interview. In these hard times, we both have agreed that in the comming holiday season, we would want nothing more than to be in a warm, cozy home or apartment with a bed. No gifts or any material possesions could ever add up to the value of what my girlfriends happiness means to me. She was nervouse to move and had the courage with me to do so and go against all her parents told her. I would do just about anything it takes to keep a smile on her face. Ive sacraficed eating, sleeping, blankets, any bit of money we had so she can eat. She had a job at j.c.penney for 9 years and now is heartbroken with confusion of why nobody will hire us. is it because we are from new york? i hope not, we are the most generouse, kind hearted people youd ever know. If money is too much to help with, the only thing further i could ask is for some sort of employment for me and/or her so we can earn our own way through this. I am proficient in computer graphic design, animal science trade school, vet tech- vet assistant work. I am a jack of all trades and a master of none.
To be offered a job/carreer within my skill range, i would gladly give up accepting any Money donations to create a steady income of my own to support the financial needs of my girlfriend and i.
Basically, i hate to ask for help, and id rather earn my keep than to have it handed to me. You appreciate what you earn more than when its just handed to you.
Thank you all in advance and god bless all of you, donating or not for taking the time to read this.
