Good news! A friend has agreed to help me get to Indiana with a truck so long as I’m able to front the travel costs. Which currently I cannot do. As such, I’ve opened this in some crazy attempt to raise something, anything, to help me get out of this city.
What is not mentioned in this fundraiser is that I am currently living in the same home as my now-ex boyfriend. It is extremely awkward and rather depressing. The sooner I can get out of here, the better off I will be. I am applying for work as we speak, and I hope to hear something soon. I don’t want to be stuck there as I am here.
My name is Jessica Parker. I am almost twenty-two years old and in a bit of a pickle. I made some unfortunate choices, and when I moved here to Orlando, I was unable to find work for six months. I successfully blew through my savings just to survive and pay the bills.
My lease ends in February, and I feel that I need to move back to Indiana. I previously worked for Purdue University, and there are new opportunities for work there. Currently, I’m working retail and it’s hardly even covering my present bills, much less paying for the care of my two cats and I cannot even buy shoes to replace the pair that I have that are genuinely falling apart. I refuse to continue to live like this. I love it here, but I simply cannot afford to stay.
Due to my work situation, I am unable to put back any money for this move myself. I am requesting $1000 to completely cover travel costs for both myself and the friend that will be driving me and my things and my cats from here in Orlando to Lafayette, IN. Any remaining money will be put to use funding necessities like dishes, cookware, cleaning supplies, and whatever is needed to cover deposits on an apartment. If, magically, there is any remaining money, I can assure you that it will be put to bills.
Any help would be appreciated greatly, and thoughts and prayers are also appreciated. Thank you so much!
I am also willing to accept donations of dishes, cookware, and other what not in reasonable condition. Please contact me if you would like to donate.
Thank you so much for your support and kindness!
