A mother's cry for help to anyone who will help.
Organized by: veronica colon
Hi all! I'm not dying, injured or need money to go on vacation. I'm not disabled or living on the streets. I have never won an award or been featured in a magazine. I'm just a woman who has worked very hard her whole life. Someone who has and will continue to sacrifice everything for her baby. A person who up until this year, has been able to always help others in need. A mother who realized one day that I can not afford to give the homeless Vet another dollar because I need that very same dollar to buy food. There was a point in my life where I had no financial pain. I donated, helped and gave to people and charities. Now, I am a charity. I'm embarrassed to admit it and I am ashamed to ask for help. I waited a long time to have a child as I wanted to make sure I did things right. I had a great job, insurance, money, house and food was never an issue to obtain. After I had my baby, I was fired from my job because I chose to breastfeed, the insurance backdated my termination date (which cannot be fixed, I've tried repeatedly) so now I'm stick with a ton of bills, I have no one to watch my baby , my mother is very I'll, I lost my house and my student loans have gone up and they won't work with me. I was forced to get state aide and am having a hard time feeling like a good mother since I've lost so much and about to lose more. The student loans are $27,000 and my payments are $335 per month. They will sue me if I don't pay. Probably take my car too. I spend so much time trying to make money by selling my personal items and by researching ways to get help ..anything. I came across this site and thought, "there are good people who care, people who can afford to donate $1 or $10 to an average person in need. I might as well ask. No harm in asking." The reality is, my bills are much higher and I need much more, but being in collections doesn't scare me ... Being sued, does. How much more do I need to lose to prove I love my daughter. Life is hard and I've spent a lot of my days crying and stressed. Please consider helping me. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you beyond words.
