I’ve seen people do this before— Asking around for money due to not having a place to stay or being able to pay the bills, and while I’m not someone thrown out on the street with no place to go right now, I may very soon be in that position, along with my Father.
Let me try to keep this short, I don’t really know how to do this, but here it goes.
My family and I aren’t really wealthy in the least, and we normally struggle with money problems and have been since I was very young. It got increasingly harder when I lost my Mother, which means my Dad is the only one working and that’s not much. Our Rent right now is 1500 dollars. He makes about 600 per week with his job. I’m sure everyone can do the math on that.
We’re down to the bone when it comes to paying our bills, let alone rent. We don’t have the money for much, or transportation to an important surgery for my Father. (We lost our car, which was repossessed in January.) Our extended family is either non existent in our lives, unwilling to help due to personal issues (Mainly from my Mom’s side hating my Dad) or have already helped and are seriously tired of doing it.
Right now, we’re looking to move to another town and to a cheaper house, but if you know a thing or two about renting homes, you usually need first and last months rent, plus a security deposit. The house we’re interested in is looking for a total that’s the amount of three months rent, first last and security, which is roughly 4000 dollars, including some added expenses for renting a moving van/something to move our items. Besides that, at the moment we have no oil for the gas, which means we can’t use our stove to cook anything, or take showers. We’re not going to make our rent in 3 days because while we barely had it to begin with, the oil will cost 300 dollars to get it back.
This is getting really long, and I’m sorry since there’s so much to explain. Hell, I don’t even know if people will read this. I don’t have anything to offer in return to you guys, I don’t draw or anything that would be of interest to give you, but I would really appreciate every last cent someone donates. I’m not picky, I don’t mind if I don’t get a crazy amount. Just, please, anything will do. 5 dollars is more than enough from one person. There’s not really anything left I can do but ask tumblr for a little help, and trust that you guys have good hearts and will help me and my Father.
TL;DR (Because wow do I type a lot)
I’m really really poor right now with no means of paying bills or rent, and I would appreciate any kind of money anyone can give me to help my Father and I get going in the right direction. Please, please please please. I don’t have anything to offer but I hope maybe you can find it in your hearts to throw something my way.
