"As one person I cannot change the world, But I can change the world of one person."
-Paul Shane Spear
I am asking everyone able to lend a hand to a mom in need. She has a small child (a year and 2 months) and they are in need of a place to stay and the means to get by for a few months. She is an Irish living in the chilean countryside, isolated and with little to no connections and transportation to the city. She currently works as a freelance English teacher but students are few and far in between and it will only get worst as summer approaches.
Currently she is living with the child's father but he wants her out as much as she needs to be out. The situation has reached toxic levels and a solution must be found very soon and with few friends and no family nearby to help her out she needs our help. Going home isn't an option as the the laws in Chile make it impossible to leave without signed consent from the child's father.
She wishes to remain anonymous because she is afraid of adding fuel to the fire and escalating an already difficult situation especially in regards to the child.
All donations will be greatly appreciated no matter how small and will go towards housing, daycare, utilities, groceries and other daily expenses until she gets back on her feet. The idea is to become self sufficient. To take care of her daughter by her own merits. Not to take anyone to court to force them to be responsible for their child. She is already of the mind to forge her own path and become the role model her daughter deserves.
The set amount will help cover all the expenses afore mentioned for about six monts this will allow her to find a place, settle down and find a stable source of income. Keep in mind that Chile is an expensive country even for Latinamerican standards and being a foreign female makes it a bit harder to find a job so we need to gather as much money as possible. This amount will be decided on a monthly estimated budget as follows:
- Rent + utilities: 600/800 USD
- Daycare: 400/500 USD
- Food: 200/300 USD
- Healthcare: 150 USD
- Transportation: 80 USD
We need every penny we can collect, please share this link with your contacts and let's show this mom she is not alone and that someone cares.
Be the person you wish would help you in such a situation.
I will endeavor to send updates so you can all follow the situation. I also hope that at some future moment the mom will gain courage from your generosity and address you all personally.
Thanks a million!
