Project get back on my feet
Organized by: Ron Bartley
This is most likely one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. My whole life I have been the guy that hustles, works hard, helps friends, family members, and even strangers. I'm a 43yr old father of two beautiful girls, (12-10) that mean the world to me. A year ago things took a turn for the worst. I lost my job, got diagnosed with being bi-polar, diabetic, mood swing disorder, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Now I have been in the fitness industry for over 20yrs and I figured I was healthy. Turns out you help others and tend to forget about yourself. Now I was a sub contracted employee and I was making a decent living and was a good provider. I paid child support, had a home, cars, a motorcycle and saw my children almost every weekend. Since loosing my job I have seen my children possibly 10x in a year and it is eating me alive. That's the only thing that matters to me. Seeing my beautiful girls. The materialistic stuff I could give a damn about. I love my daughters and because of the debt, fines, no job, medical bills, claiming bankruptcy, and a failed relationship that left me with nothing....I am finding it to be very overwhelming. I have even gone for social assistance and the Canadian Government wouldn't give me enough money per month for food for a week. Both my daughters live quite a distance away from me and I've been trying to get my vehicle on the road so I can spend time with them. I've never been the guy to ask for a hand out or even help for that matter, but I've recently asked friends and family for help and they can't do it. I have accumulated $41k in fines because I broke the law and drove my car uninsured in an attempt to see my girls. I know...I am an idiot, but I love them that much. All I want to do is get the fines paid off, get rid of my debt, get my vehicle on the road so that I can actually make it to job interview to be a good provider again and spend time with my daughters. I'm hoping that there are people in the world that can empathise with my situation and help me out. I have a business plan that I am in the middle of going through with and when it takes off...because it will....I will gladly pay every single one of you back. Thank you for reading aka listening and if you can help me....thank you very much. I wish you all the best....even if you can't help me. Cheers.
