Buried Loved One, Need Rent Help

My Story:

We are an engaged couple soon to be married. We have one adult son and one adult daughter who are currently in college. Our son studies technology and our daughter's major is English. My fiance work's full-time in fulfillment warehousing and I work part-time doing the same. I voluntarily look after an elderly, disabled close friend of the family twice a week.

We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. We had no savings set aside when an immediate family member passed away without warning. I had to open a line of credit to pay for his services and burial. These costs have put us in an unexpected financial bind and now we have to choose between paying our rent or utilities. My fiance and I need help to pay our rent this month. If we are late with our rent, we will be served a three day notice to pay or quit. We are worried that we will lose our apartment if we do not get back on track.

This funding will bring our household current with all of our bills again, and restore our sense of stability. I will be working full-time soon which will give us a chance to build an emergency savings fund for ourselves so that we will be able to maintain our expenses should something like this occur again. Your help would make a long-lasting impact on our family, and it would set a wonderful example. This will teach us people can truly make a difference in the lives of others, and this will be our inspiration to help others in turn.
