Thank you so much for your contribution! We were able to move last Friday (talk about walking by faith) but my car payment and DTE were delayed. When I received the email that you all had helped my family I instantly broke into tears. Being self employed can be a struggle, but I chose this life so I could make a living for my children and be able to spend majority of my time with them. This, is a reminder that maybe everything will be okay! There really are angels walking around the earth. With the car note and dte now paid I can focus on rent for June and continue to thrive to be the best example possible for my kids. They really love our new complex! It has a pool, a park, and we�re walking distance from an ICE CREAM SHOP! The day �it takes a village to raise a child� and I am SO fortunate to have modest needs in my village. My prayer is one day I am able to give to those the way you all have given to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you. Thank you.
We're on The Verge of Getting a Stable Home, but We Need Help With a Car Payment Please!
I have two amazing children that I'm raising on my own. My daughter's father is absent, and my son's father is incarcerated. It's hard being a single mother, but I've always fought hard for my children and will always continue to do so. I'm the first in my family to graduate college, and my dream is to be the first in my family to own a home. My daughter is my oldest and will be 11 years old in May, and to be honest, we've really grown up together. She's taught me more than I ever thought anyone could. My son is only 2 years old, and oh man is he a typical boy! He loves trucks and playing outdoors in nature. He always keeps me on my toes and is just a bundle of joy.
Before the pandemic began, I was working as the director of a daycare but lost my job when everything shut down. Since then, I've hustled to make ends meet for my family, and I started two different businesses. I'm offering nanny services for one of my businesses, and the other one is a salon service doing hair. God has blessed my business, and my state of mind has improved so much from where it once was during Covid-19. We're finally in a place where we can pay our rent and have some stability in our once turbulent lives. We even found an apartment and were in the process of securing everything when suddenly, I woke up one morning to find my bank account hacked. The hackers charged my account, caused me to incur overdraft fees, and now, my account is completely frozen on the eve of us moving into our new apartment. On top of that, I still have monthly bills to pay and can't afford them until my banking situation is resolved. I'm worried about falling behind and losing our car and our electricity just as we're about to move, so I'm asking for help with both of those bills.
Until this situation with my bank account is resolved, we're completely stuck, and I'm worried we could lose out on securing a new and stable home, or worse, we could end up losing our only means of transportation. For their entire lives, I have fought for my children, and I've fought through difficult situations to make sure they have what they need. We've been homeless, we've hopped around different houses, and just when we're finally about to secure a more permanent home, we're on the verge of losing everything. It's hard to swallow, but I know that we can get through this like we've gotten through everything else. This assistance with our car payment and electric bill would get us through this difficult time, and for that, I want to thank everyone who helps us.
