You all don't know me. Many of you don't even have a reason to care. I don't blame you. Times are tough for all of us. Still, I am pleading to you... Please, donate or share. Help spread the word of my predicament.
I'm sick. I have no job and not for the lack of trying. My mother - the brilliant, remarkable woman that she is - supports me. She works full time at a job that is dangerous for her and her injured back. She risks being paralyzed every day so that we may have a roof over our head.
The trouble is... we might lose that roof because I can't pull my weight. I've applied to so many positions, but between my lack of experience, unfinished college education, and my un-diagnosed illness, it's hard getting hired anywhere. I even have a staffing agency helping me.
Back to the roof issue. We live in an apartment. Our lease is ending and management made a business decision to renovate everything. We found out via courtesy call when we were supposed to alert them of any intention to move, only to be alerted that we have no choice.
They gave us an option, though, and between everywhere else and all the fees just to try and get approved, we decided to take them up on that offer. It'll save us the thousand or so dollars that we do not immediately have just to move elsewhere for smaller space and similar or more rent.
The issue? It's 300 more expensive and we were already getting on by our teeth before the increase thanks to all of our debt. Yes, we tried looking elsewhere. Anything cheaper was far more than an hour from my mother's job. We couldn't accept that.
Until I can find work, we need help for rent. I beg of you. Please, help us.
