THE STORY:

As most of you have probably heard by now, my company is transferring me to Michigan to help grow a new location (which should help create several jobs in a struggling economy). Many changes have been made to their timeline, so now I have to get back to MI much sooner than expected. This means I have to pay for things I hadn't originally budgeted for, like lease break fees. (I had asked my employer about the transfer timeline, signed a lease based on their response, and then they changed the plans.)

I also don't have nearly as much time as I had planned on to save up money for things like a newer used car and a place to stay once we get back to MI. My current car is 15 years old and - if by some miracle - it survived another cross-country drive (which I don't want to make anyway), I'm sure it wouldn't last much longer after that. Once we're back we'll also need a place to stay, which most likely means first and last months' rent, security deposits, fees, etc.

$9,000 may seem like a high goal, but you'd be surprised how quickly things add up when you're uprooting your life and moving across the country. This is why I need and would greatly appreciate your help.

Once my roommate and I are back in MI with our furry kids and set up with our basics, any additional funds that had been raised will be donated to local (MI) charities, probably benefitting animals (because you know me).
