Thank you so much for your help, when I get the notification that my application had been funded, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted off of my shoulders and I leapt for joy. I will be smiling for the rest of the week, in these dark times I have learned that there are still many good people in this world.
Single Dad Needs Help Paying Rent
I am a single father and I have an amazing 20-month-old girl, who I love more than anything in the entire world. I work in banking and my daughter goes to daycare full-time. In my spare time, I love to spend time with my daughter taking our dogs for long walks in the evening before bed. Normally, I earn enough to take care of us and all of our needs and expenses. However, because of Covid-19 affecting the banking industry so significantly, my commissions have been cut severely, forcing me to dip into our savings in order to care for my daughter and I. On top of my commissions being cut, I have to pay child support to my daughter's mother and her two other children as well. Both of these factors have severely limited my income as of late.
Ultimately, I need help making rent for this coming month because if I don't then my daughter and I will be evicted. I cannot allow that to happen and I will do everything to make sure that my daughter has a good life ahead of her, even if that means relying on strangers for help in our time of need.
These are incredibly difficult circumstances, but I recognize that we have nowhere else to turn right now. I hope that someday, when my daughter is older, I can look her in her eyes and tell her that in our greatest time of need we were helped by complete strangers. I want her to know what it means to help others, and this would be the ultimate example for her. Thank you all so much for your time and for your consideration of our situation.
