Okay I am about to leave McDonald’s and head back to our motorhome, so before I go, I’m making one final plea: PLEASE reblog the shit out of this. Even if you can’t contribute, and trust me I KNOW how difficult times are right now, PLEASE help me out with a signal boost. Don’t donate any money unless you can absolutely afford to, but if you can donate please feel free to send me an address (anon is fine) so my kids can send you a lovely card.
For those of you who don’t know the situation, my kids, myself, and my kids’ dad have been homeless for 2 months. We are currently living in a broken-down motorhome with no electricity and no plumbing. We use our truck to tow the motorhome to parking lot to parking lot when we get told to move on. The truck broke down Saturday, and without the truck, our motorhome is at risk of being impounded. Which would mean we’d be back to sleeping on the streets. All the truck needs is a new power-steering belt, installation, and a tow to a body shop that does belt installations.
I have been in remission from lupus and cancer since October, but since we’ve been homeless, I’ve been having arthritis flares. Getting the truck working is essential not only for the sake of our motorhome, but also so that I don’t have to walk to work. John and I own our own business, where we work 60 hours a week each. John also has a second job and is looking for a third. I have been looking for a second job fox six months and have an interview tomorrow. We don’t get any food stamps, childcare assistance, or housing assistance (duh on that last one).
Donations will be used to get our truck running, and if anything is left over, to get the electricity and plumbing in our motorhome sorted out. This would make a huge difference for my family— It’s not easy going 2 months without electricity or running water. Any help is appreciated, and if you can’t help, I completely understand but PLEASE help out with a reblog. Thank you so much!!!
