Bitter cold today looking for work. Back at the shelter for warmth. Brrr
Thanks for the Visit and God Bless!
Getting a good amount of visitors and contributors.
Thanks for visiting and I also like the words of inspiration and Ideas people send me. Some I will definitely follow through on.
Feeling alone, depressed and scared again, the holidays are hell when you do not have family or any local friends to hang out with. The shelter is rough tonight. The cold has brought in many more and tensions are high, and I mean high after the holidays. Been many fights and police called here.
I just hate it here and I want to get out. I need to reach close to my goal just to be able to move and relocate soon.
I had a humbling Christmas at the shelter. No presents, just other unfortunate people like me sharing stories and laughs and food. Who really needs presents anyway? Well i hope to make it through to the New year. I just hope it will be better than this year and I will be relocated somewhere more prosperous.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and thanks for caring and visiting my GFM page.
Just wanting to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
Thanks for visiting!
I had a really good Birthday yesterday. Stayed with my friend Mike who I mention in my story. We watched the Lions win over the bears and Mike Made a great meatloaf dinner for both of us.
I spent today walking around looking for work, got a few applications in, once place gave me hope and said a few positions will be offered in early January.
Well I turned 50 today, yep the big five -O. I would have never imagined in my younger days that I would be in this position in life I am in now?
I will be 50 on the 21st of December. I hope to be on way way to relocation by then. Please I really don't want to spend my Birthday and Christmas in the shelter. But i am looking forward to watching the Lions/Bears game at the recreation center. They usually have snacks and pop along with the game. They know it will be my birthday so I am sure a cake might be in order. 50 wow it's going to take some time for that to sink in.
Please read my story and my updates. And may God bless you all for all your kind words and contributions.
Thanks for the visit. If you are not able to make a contribution, could you please post a link to facebook , twitter or elsewhere. I would really love to reach my goal by the new year. I am over halfway. Thanks and god bless you all.
Thanks for visiting and reading my story. I am over halfway to my goal and I am very grateful to all my supporters and visitors. I really would like to reach my goal by the new year so I can start a new life in a new place in the new year.
I will turn 50 on the 21st. I really do not want to be in the shelter on my birthday and especially Christmas.
Please read all my updates or subscribe to them.
Again thanks for the visit and as always have a blessed day,
I had a great day at church today, went to the pastors house and watched the Lions game and had a wonderful dinner. I like this new church and he fantastic people there. I am currently back at the shelter but after today I have a lot of joy in my heart. I am still in the shelter and have hopes to get past this and soon be at my goal and unto better my relocation and a better life.
God bless everyone one that has visited my page. I mean that with all my heart.
At the library looking at the job websites. Going to head up to the main strip and check on some of the applications I put in and put in more at some other places I haven't tried yet. Wish me LUCK!
Please read all my updates and my story. All I want is my life back before all this homelessness. i really want to get on with my life and relocate. Please help. want to do is move on and it takes contributions to do it. i have no other alternative at this point.
Was out putting in applications in stores today again. Might have a lead on a couple of jobs also. keeping my fingers crossed. Was awful cold out there today, really need warmer gloves.
Thanks for visiting, I am very close to my goal, please find it in your heart to offer a contribution. I would love to be on my way to relocation by the new year. It would be great to get out of Saginaw and start a new life elsewhere in a new year.
Have a blessed day and thanks again for the visit!
Had a great Thanksgiving with a old friend downstate. The fun is over back in the shelter for now till I can either find a job and a place or relocate like I really want to.
Well at least i won't be alone for Thanksgiving a friend of mine down state will be picking me up at the shelter in about a hour or so. He says i can also stay with him for a couple days, maybe till Sunday? Then it's right back here at the shelter :-(
Wishing all my visitors a Happy thanksgiving!
Well if you read my last update I was trying to seek refuge with my friend who I mention in my story. Well he is bad off again today so I am going to walk back to the shelter for the night. I hope i make it there in time to get a stay and all the Ferguson arguments have been resolved. Uggh! I hate this life here. I got a cold 2 hour walk ahead of me now, bus don't come out here this late. ETA: I am safely back in the Saginaw Salvation Army Rescue Mission. Got back at 8pm and was given a room and 40 minutes on their internet. Wow that was close God Bless. It would be very cold under the bridge tonight..
Going to head over to my friends today and see if I can stay with him for a few days. The shelter is getting a little heated and rough after the whole Ferguson debacle. Been a lot of arguments and even a bad fist fight. I don't feel safe there right now.
Thank You for visiting my go fund me page. Please read my story. I have hope that I will reach my goal and be able to leave Saginaw by the first of the new year. or even by Christmas. This would certainly be a Christmas wish for me to achieve my goal and be onto a better life.
Again thanks for the visit and have a very merry Christmas and a Happy new year. I have high hopes of a better new year soon.
Just got off the bus at the library to use their computers to seek work and check messages. Have a blessed day and thanks for visiting and reading my story.
Thanks for visiting. it's being suggested on some of the places I have posted that I am a fraud and a scammer. I assure you i am a real person with real needs and I am not trying to scam anyone ever. I just can't believe there are people out there that rather than help or give advice instead they make up lies, call names and whatnot.
Grrr! Got mugged by a couple thugs on my way back to the shelter today. They came from behind me and knocked me down hard and took off with my book bag. This really sucks too. I had mt extra changes of clothes and all my toiletries, soaps, razor, deodorant, shower shoes. I really need to get out of this town. A guy at the shelter took this pic on his phone for me and uploaded it to my email so I could post it here. I got the police on the way don't know what they can do really. I did not get a good look at the two thugs. My head hurts, but I am ok.
Thanks for visiting and welcome to my GFM page. Please read through my updates. And please consider a contribution or share my story on FB or twitter.
I am sure I can reach my goal if I can get my campaign out to enough kind people like you that at least visit my page and read my story.
So I am off to catch the bus and head to the library to look at the newspapers and read the job boards online there. Wish me luck!
At the library today. The walk was nice, it's a little warmer today, especially with my new winter coat I received from a local Church the other day. Anyway looking at job websites, checking emails and working on my GFM campaign. Have a Blessed day folks!
Brrr! Need to get a warmer Jacket, gonna try to make it to this church i heard about and see if the have anything in my size. I guess they have a clothing drive or something going on today. It's supposed to get real cold here in Saginaw Michigan real soon.
Well I did have a stroke of luck last night at the shelter. They did end up letting me stay after all.
Ok this is messed up. I got back into the shelter over an hour ago and checked my msg's on their PC. Was ready to sign into a room for the night and they came back to say that I did not sign in on time. So now in about a half hour I will be ushered out cause they do not have room for me tonight? I am so tired of this. I guess I will be sleeping under a overpass tonight. Man this is gonna be cold and horrible. I gotta get off the shelters PC inn 15 minutes to and leave, Grrrr! Damn it's going to be a cold rough night. Dammit!
Thanks Joe after the crazy day I had today this put's me back into perspective. Twice today while riding the Stars bus in Saginaw today looking around for work, they dropped me off at odd locations. The second time I was totally lost and frightened where they dropped me off. Thanks and god bless you your your kind contribution.
Never did get to the place I wanted to go apply for the job I was after, Well maybe tomorrow?
Cold walk to the library today but the sun is nice. Anyway going to look at the Job websites again and see where they lead me today. Been applying at stores for Christmas help, would have thought I have gotten a call from at least one of them by now?
Not a whole lot happening today, library was really busy today, wasn't any job on the websites that I qualify for. Gonna go walk around for a few hours and see if I can get any applications in. Feeling kinda lonely today. I wish I knew more people in this area.
Thanks you dearly for your contribution. You brought tears to my eyes from this contribution. My hopes are even higher now that I will reach my goal soon and be on my way to better pastures.
God bless you all. Mark, Suzanne, Hailey, Savannah and Noah.
Just finishing up at the library looking at a few job websites and checking emails. Seen a few jobs I qualify for that I will go and apply for today. Then I am off to Vote and see if my friend I sometimes stay with is sober enough, otherwise it's back to the Salvation Army shelter. At least it's warmer today.
l am finally feeling like I am gaining some traction with my campaign. Once again I would like to thank all the people who contributed and also to those who leave kind words of inspiration. It all means a lot to me. I hope to reach my goal before winter sets in. Otherwise winters going to be real hard in and out of the shelters here. I already was given a warning from the director at the local Salvation Army that beds will be scarce soon. I still have my faith in god though. I know he will find a way for me somehow. Meanwhile I keep my contributions banked for the day I reach my goal and I am able to move on from Saginaw to better opportunities. Thanks Very much for the visit and have a blessed day friends.
Thank you very much Sarah for your kind words and your donation, this gets me closer to my goal and a new life away from this area. Have a blessed day.
Thanks for visiting. All I need is a few big donors to push me to my goal. I am or was a real person at one time. I feel so down about my situation lately. Please if you can help do it? Thanks and again have a blessed day.
Still have not been able to find any work in this area. And still in and out of the shelter. Please consider even a small contribution. Thank you!
Thanks Jenny, I appreciate the prayers, keep them coming. Hope to hear from you.
Pablo thanks for the kind words and especially the prayer. I really appreciate them. Being that you are only 14 I would like to give you some honest advice my friend. Stay in school and get as much learning as you can, I wish I understood that when I was your age.
Please find it in your heart to contribute and not judge me. Now that it has been getting colder I need help more than ever. Please I honestly need your help.
Looks like another cold night, heading back to the rescue mission. I just hope they have room for me tonight.
If I just had one dollar from each of the over 5000 visitors I would be at my goal and onto a better life in a better location. Please consider a contribution, thanks!
Last night was horrible for me. I went back into the shelter only to be harassed and provoked, did not get much sleep. I am starting to get worried now cause sleeping outside the shelter now is going to be cold, cold, cold. I hate that shelter so much.
Thank you Jaclyn, that means a lot to me. And Happy new year to you and yours. Stay blessed.
Thanks for visiting, Yes my story is real and no I am not trying to scam anyone. Please if you came here just to make life harder on me by bad comments? Please don't bother I am already at a all time low.
I can only go up from here.
I just would like to thank everyone for visiting and reading my story. Please consider a contribution, every amount will bring me closer to my goal and a new life somewhere more prosperous.
Thanks for visiting!
Fabián ! I am really believing my goal is reachable and soon I will be able to move away from this area and find a better life.
Thank you Meghan! I am starting to feel more confident that I will reach my goal.
Hanna And Ricardo! Hope you both have a blessed day. And Thank You!
I got a appointment through community mental health today about this severe depression I have had lately. Going to see if talking to someone might help. Personally I believe it's just this situation I am in and not having any relatives left and nowhere or no one to turn to for advice or housing. Just another reason I want out of here so bad. I know it's better in other places. I really would like to be able to make it to Austin. Well that's my hope anyway. Again I want to thank everyone who has visited me here.
THANK YOU DEARLY!
With over 3000 visitors now. if each of them only gave $2 I would be done here and be on my way to a better life. On another note, still feeling very depressed. At least the weathers been nice here in Saginaw , MI.
Thank you so much Thom, truly appreciate the contribution. Just wish more people where as generous.
Then I would be at my goal and onto a better life.
Thank you Christoph, I really appreciate the contribution. It bring me closer to my goal and hope of moving to a better locale and a better life. Thanks again and have a blessed day!
Thanks Sriram, That helps me get closer to my goal and a happier life. Have a blessed day.
Everything I in my gofundme page is accurate and real. I dont know why I would get a email questioning why it would not be?
2000 visit's so far. Still under a dark cloud of depression here. Sure could use more inspirational comments and definitely need more contributions to help reach my goal and get on with a new life in a more prosperous location.
Thanks so much for visiting.
God i am horribly depressed today. I need to get out of this situation I am in, and soon. I just don't know how much more I can stand?
@James Hornof my goal is actually to be able to relocate to Austin Texas. I heard there is jobs galore there.
Mike MacArthur, I really liked your comment. It gave me hope. God Bless you.
1661 visitors, if each of them contributed at least $3 I would easily be at my goal and onto a better life in a better area.
I would like to thank the people for their kind comments, they mean a lot to me. Much appreciated.

Still no changes in my situation. Thanks for stopping by.
Have been staying with a guy I met, but it's only temporary. Still looking for work though.
