I am a single mom and student who is currently unemployed in Southern California. I am NOT getting any unemployment, welfare or child support. I would rather be working. I have not been able a job due to the shortage of jobs in our area and that I am not bilingual in spanish. I have been living off my credit cards and have about maxed them out $13,000 in debt again. I have been using cupons and turning in recycling to get a little food. I am struggling with health issues Thyroid problems and gastrointestinal problems and am on the verge of foreclosing on my house that took me 10 years to get. And possibly losing my beat up car because it is having transmission problems. I am desperate at this point because the holidays are around the corner and I won't be able to give my son a Christmas if I do notget a job or help soon. I have not been able to sleep knowing I have a pile of bills I cannot pay and all of the extra stress is aggrivating my health problems. I have never paid late on my bills ever before. I am asking for any donations through pay pal to help us out or money orders can be mailed to Amy at the below address, It can be even a dollar to as much as you feel like donating. EVERY dollar helps. I have been trough alot Health problems, being robbed at gunpoint, son was kidnapped when he was 3 but returned, I was in an car accident and flipped a car in a ditch and am trying to stay strong and block out the horrible things and pray and keep hope that things will change for the better. My health is so rapidly deteriorating I have done a will because I am scared I wont be around for my son. I have been to 5 doctors over the last 2 years and am still waiting additional testing to find out an exact diagnosis. My dreams are that one day I would like to start my own home based business, that I will be able to silkscreen shirts photography, do graphics, business cards and flyers. That way I will be able to work from home and spend more time with my son as he is now a teenager in high school. But I have no money to buy all the machines and equipment to do so. My plans with this site if all goes sucessfull, is that once I get enough donations for all of my problems. To help other single moms out too. I will donate extra money directly to friends that are single moms or too charities designed for single parents. Below are things that I need to raise money for, I will add pictures soon. I will remove the items as I get enough donations to cover them.
Immediate need items
HOUSE PAYMENT due Dec 2011 $970.00
I have an infected root canal that causes my headaches daily I need $200 to have the cap removed and for them to redo the bad job the first dentist did
I have a thyroid and digestive problem that I have not been given a diagnosis yet, I am suffering. I have seen 2 doctors that gave me no answers and took $800 from me. I have no insurance and have no more money. I have a third doctor but it will cost $2000 to get new tests done. I possibly will need brain surgery for the pituitary gland. Doc said that my brian is not sending my pituaitary the right signals and my thyroid and blood sugar levels are all messed up. It scares me to death, I do not want to have a cat scan I hear they give you radiation that could cause cancer.
My son needs a hair cut and clothes for winter.
I have been living in my house for 2 years now and I cannot afford to get grass, so it still looks like a bank owned house. If I get caught from the city it is a $500 fine for no grass. It costs about $500 to get grass for my front yard only. I panic everyday that I will find a ticket on my door.
I have been driving the same beat up car for 11 years now. Several things are broken. Some one hit and run my car in a parking lot. So the whole front panel is dented in bad. Driver side door does not open or window does not roll down. I have to climb in the passenger side. Glove box broke off. Some one broke into the car and broke the wind sheild wiper handle. The trunk leaks water whenit rains. It is barely running. I either need a new one or money to get a tune up and fix the broken items. My car squels very loudly and wakes up the whole neighborhood when I leave or come home. Tires are bald and past due on the oil change.
I have pretty much raised my 14 year old son singley since he was nine months old. My ex even tried to kidnap him to avoid child support, I did get him back and had to file a restraining order. I have gone trough horrible things like being chased in a car at gunpoint I flipped the car trying to get away. They stole everything from my car and almost killed me including $600 of memory sticks from my camera, I will never be able to get those photos back. I am hoping that things get better for me and my son. I have alot of bad luck sometimes I feel cursed. My thyroid problem has caused me to gain soo much weight m clothes do not fit and my pants are ripping at the seams and gouging into my stomach. More than anything I just want a job, and then of course for my health issues to be resolved So I will be able to accomplish my dreams of starting my own business one day.
~as we struggle and pray for a better day we hope god answers our prayers
AS OF TODAY 12-6-2011 we have not recieved a penny of help. I have asked over 100 charities and about 40 local churches. They are happy to collect the donations but when someone is in true need, they WILL NOT HELP. Maybe if people don't have money to help, they please send your unused gift cards or gas cards to the below address. I have applied for over 700 jobs in the last 6 months had about 10 interviews but because im not bilingual in spanish or becuase I cannot type 90 words a minute I cannot get a job. It makes me really sad that when I did have money I would donate and help others out in need and now that i am in desperate need, no one cares. More than anything I just want a job and for my health to get better. all this stress is killing me and making my health conditions worse. Some one, any one, are there any angels out there that can help. Please Help
