This person has left the following thank you note:
I would like to thank every one of you for taking your time and reading my request for help and then feeling compelled through your own kindness and generosity to donate to me. I never thought that I would have been in the situation to ask for help, I am usually the one offering help to others and for all of you to step up and help me, I am humbled by your act. In theses times, we are all unsure of what will be thrown at us next, but while I have been working to recover and help my parents recover, I have witnessed that people of all kinds are willing to help and this warms my heart and also gives me hope, that no matter the issue, we are there to lift each others hearts and look for a better and kinder way. Thank you all! Sincerely, Brian
Two Hurricanes & COVID Are Keeping Me Out of Work! I Need Help Keeping My Home Please.
I am a single man that lives by himself. I spend most of my time assisting my elderly disabled parents by helping them get to their doctor visits and by running their errands like grocery shopping. I also assist them with things around the house like home repair and maintenance, as well as lawn care. I work full-time as an hourly casino employee, which I enjoy.
When the pandemic began, I was furloughed from my hourly job and was using what savings I had, as well as the Covid relief money I got, to get by. However, my financial situation really got out of control when the hurricanes, Laura and Delta, hit and damaged my workplace. Since then, I have completely depleted my savings and stimulus money trying to stay current on all of my bills. Right now, I'm really worried about losing my apartment.
I'm asking for help with my rent so that I can stay in my home until my paychecks become steady again. I'm looking to potentially start a new job, but until then, I need help to tide me over. Not only would this assistance allow me to keep my home, but it would make sure that I can provide for my disabled parents as well. They rely on me a lot for help, so losing my home wouldn't just be a huge blow to me but it would be to them as well. Thank you all in advance for taking the time to consider my story and for your kindness, generosity, and compassion.
