Hello to everyone who reached my campaing, I ask you for a moment to read.
I was working from home with an outsource company, the pay was ok. For this school period I enrolled my niece (15 years old) in a good highschool who asked for a monthly payment in dollars (which has become regular in my country, Venezuela) and at the moment I could easely pay the monthly payment.
I admit that I really wanted him to go to this highschool for two reasons: 1) is one of the very few who has an excellent reputation when it comes to actually working with students, they have a good rate of students that actually end up going to an University. 2) it is a semi-religious highschool. As such, they have several programs to encourage good behaviour, to be responsible. And quite frankly, with how things are in my country, this is one aspect I really want my niece to learn.
Starting this 2020, the company I was working with decided they didn't need their outsourced branchs anymore, so now I was unemployed. At the moment, my sister (my niece's mom) told me she would now pay for his highschool. She was (and is) in Peru, but she didn't have the chance to send anything. She was told the business where she was working was slow so they would call them when they needed their employees to work, and they would pay only for hours worked. With this new system, she barely was making money to pay for her rent, not to mention she has two more children (a 10 year old boy and a 3 year old girl).
So I started looking for a job, unfortunately everything I have found wont pay more than 10$ a month (in our currency, and I'm talking about profesional work). I also started looking for oportunities online, and if anyone reading this has experience with what is called "beermoney" knows exactly what happened next.
Honestly, I just wasted my time. I tried a lot of recomended pages, but I could only make like 0.02 cents a day. I tried survey sites only to find that I'm never elegible, those sites work for US residents in their majority. My country was not accepted in a lot of these sites. I managed to "work" in the dreadfull Humanatic, it was a nightmare to be honest, and when I went to request payout they frozed my account and then deactivated it, obviously not paying me what I did. When I email them what happened, they just send me a bot answer of finding some odd patern and whatnot. After more research, I found out they love to deactivate accounts just like that, my bad for not researching first.
I did have an oportunity back in march. A friend could get me a job as a translator in Colombia, everything was in motion to be hired and then COVID-19 said "nope". The Venezuela-Colombia border was closed. The papers I needed to apostille in my country before going to Colombia could not be done, as we entered in quarentine.
So, I haven't been able to consistently raise the money to pay my niece highschool. My sister did found another job, and then got fired because she was caught sniffing, so she was told that for security reasons they needed her to go (because of the pandemic). My niece's father is none existant, to this date he has never showed up, my niece doesn't know his dad, so I have been helping my sister raise him and have become a father figure.
At this moment, I'm still trying to figure a way to raise that money. I singned up in Utest, and started looking for sites that could land me a remote job. Unfortunately debts wont wait for me, and the highschool administration is pressing to recieve payment. I don't blame them or anything, I know I have to pay, maybe I'm a little surprise at how non-emphatic they are at the parents that are having a hard time to pay because of the current situation.
Anyway, in order to pay all of the remaining of the year the total comes to 350$. I'm still looking to work for them, but I have to admit that I'm getting a little desperate, so I'm also taking a chance doing a campaing to see if I get lucky enough to at least aliviate some of the debt.
For anyone who had the time to read, I thank you even if you don't plan to donate. In that case I would only ask you to share my campaing. Have a good day/night and God bless you.
