Hello World I am reaching out today with a heart heavy with the challenges life has recently thrown my way. My name is Devon, and I find myself at a crossroads that I never could have imagined.

Seventeen years ago, I started a journey with my partner that I believed would last a lifetime. We built a life together, raising four wonderful children who are my pride and joy. However, life can be unpredictable, and circumstances change. We found ourselves on different paths, leading to a difficult divorce that left me as a single parent responsible for our four children.

Amidst the emotional turmoil of the divorce, life decided to test my strength further. I faced my own health scare, a battle that I am grateful to have overcome. But then, another blow struck with the unexpected passing of my father, leaving me not only heartbroken but also grappling with the financial responsibilities that come with such times.

As if the universe wasn't done challenging me, I lost my job due to circumstances beyond my control. Suddenly, I found myself without a stable income to support my children and myself. The weight of my responsibilities seemed insurmountable, as bills piled up and daily expenses became a constant struggle.

With the determination to create a better future for my family, I took a bold step towards education to secure a stable career. I am now a 2nd-year student in a child and youth worker program working toward my Bachelor's in the next year. However, the journey to education has its own set of financial hurdles. As I work tirelessly to provide for my children, I am faced with the overwhelming task of finding monetary avenues to pay for school and cover our essential bills.

In this time of vulnerability, I am humbly reaching out for your support. Every donation, no matter how small, will help alleviate the financial burden that I am currently shouldering alone. Your contribution will not only assist me in pursuing my education but also provide a stable environment for my children to thrive in. Your generosity will be a beacon of hope, a reminder that in times of adversity, there are compassionate individuals who are willing to extend a helping hand.

If you are able and willing to support us, you can donate your kindness will make a significant impact on our journey to stability and self-sufficiency. If you are unable to donate at this time, your moral support and words of encouragement are equally valued and appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Your empathy and support mean the world to me and my children. Together, we can transform these challenges into stepping stones toward a brighter future.

  • It’s not much, but it’s a little something to say you should be SO proud of yourself for taking these steps (and many other difficult ones). I wish I could do more.

Still Moving foreward.

In a bid to remain transparent. I've had to remove the photos of my children from the original fundraising page due to the backlash from their grandparents on both sides. I would never use my kids for my benefit and even though I am asking for funding I still work
