Laid Off Due to Coronavirus: Need Rent Help

My Story:

I am a young adult who graduated from college in 2017. I work full-time as a caregiver at a dog daycare and boarding facility, and I work part-time as a dance instructor for children. I have a deep love for animals and have my own dog, who is the love of my life. He loves going for walks, playing with his toys, and modeling the dog bandanas I make and sell through my Etsy shop.

Due to Covid-19, I was temporarily laid off from my full-time position at the dog daycare. Dance classes have also ceased because of the pandemic, so I have been laid off from this part-time position as well. My only income is the small amount in profit I make from my Etsy shop. I am struggling a lot with the complete loss of my steady income, and I am in a financial bind with rent and bills. I need help if I am going to be able to pay for my rent. I have been using every bit of money I can scrounge up to stay current on my rent payments, even when that means deferring payments on other bills or running behind.

This funding will allow me to make my monthly rent payment so as to stay in good standing with my landlord. I will then be able to use any money I may make to pay other bills and to buy food. I will be returning to my dog daycare position soon but will not be paid for a while. These funds will help me get back on my feet until I receive my first paycheck. My position as a dance teacher is on hold for an unknown amount of time, but funding will nonetheless make an impact and help guide me on my way. My situation is humbling, and I look forward to giving back to others in my future in the same way others may help me now. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your generosity.
