I will be 66 years old on February 2017, my full retirement age. I'm working now, but my position may be up for retirement before me, so in light of this plausible problem. I'm in need of $24,000.00 to pay off a cumbersome debt so that I will be able to live off of my small Social Security and pension check when that time comes. I'm sure there are many others who find themselves in this same boat, but all I can think of, during this desperate time of need to take care of this problem, is to reach out to a generous community for help. There is a certain amount of embarrassment that comes along with this request as I'm not asking for money for someone else's charity or a dire medical issue, life just happens and some of us just don't prepare well for the inevitable....maybe it's denial, maybe it's ignorance....but alas.... I'm here, and the prospects of finding a good paying job at my age is not high. If 24,000 people were to donate $1.00 each, or 4800 people were to donate $5.00 to my campaign I could stop the stress and finally at this age start preparing right for my inevitable date of retirement. I am thankful for this platform and opportunity to ask for this help. I am thankful to all who can understand. I am thankful for the life I have been blessed with thus far, and will always return this favor to others in kind.
