I Was Hit by a Truck & Am About to Lose Everything I Own. Please Help Me Save My Storage Unit!
I am a single woman who works full-time. I love running, boarding, reading, volunteering and getting my feet wet in all that I desire. I'm very motivated to excel in my passions and give back!
I had a very rough year. I started the year homeless and had to put all of my belongings into storage. While I was in a shelter, I used a lot of my savings to settle debts on my credit report so that when I'm stable enough I can lease a decent home. I was making great progress and was able to get back into an apartment. But then, last month, while I was out running, I was hit by a truck that ran a red light a red light while I was crossing a cross walk. This put me in the hospital, and suddenly, after everything I'd done, I ended up with medical bills I had no choice but to pay. To pay the bills, I took money from the part of my budget that was supposed to pay for my storage unit. And now, if I don't pay this storage bill, I'm going to lose everything I own.
I need help from Modest Needs to pay for my storage unit before before everything I own gets auctioned off to some stranger. If you can help, you'll bring me current on my storage rent, and I'll finally be able to get access to my possessions. At that point, I can bring my things to my apartment, and this crisis will basically be over. This will lift a lot of weight off of my shoulders and a give a sense of stability while I continue to gain my strength back. Nobody wants to lose everything they've worked for all of their lives. Thank you.
