Help Us Start over.

$1,345 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 27 people in 8 months
Hello!

This year I made the decision to make the leap to improve the quality of life for my partner and I. We moved from a moldy building that was making us both ill to a great urban apartment complex.

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control our move cost us almost $3,000 dollars more than we budgeted for due to delays, flaky movers/helpers.

I work full time and my partner is disabled. 

Currently we need to raise $2500 to finish this move and get our lives restarted.

Due to some unexpected extra expenses and a medical bill for me, we haven't been able to get our old apartment paid off.

Here is what we will be using the funds for:
800$ for move out payment.
490$ for med bill.
150$ for two months health related expenses.
300$ groceries/staples.

Half of any further funds will go into replenishing our savings and the other half will go towards regular expenses until we are caught up and have room to breath.

If I surpass my goal, I have chosen family members I would like to be able to support. Several of my close family have had major disasters and it is my goal to be able to help them as folks have helped me.

Thank you for reading.

Hi folks!
Thank you all so much. Donors, y'all have really been the most amazing.

Recently, my partner had a situation that almost landed him in the hospital and kept him incapacitated for over a month. Then because my body does this, I got overly stressed out and got very ill for about three weeks.

Y'all know I work so, I wasn't able to take time off. And I unfortunately had to spend most of my savings due to the elevated cost of keeping us alive from the end of Nov through New Years Eve.

Right now here's where things stand.

With the help of a dear friend, and if we can fully fund this fundraiser we will have our start over.

Here is what I need.

There is $1470 left to go in this fundraiser. Raising those funds would enable me to pay one large outstanding bill before it hits my credit report or goes into collections.

The remainder would go into my fund to buy a new modern laptop. I am a writer. I don't have a computer or a tablet and trying to work since my computer died has been almost impossible. With the help of my friend and getting this fundraiser fully funded, I will be empowered to work again and be ready to launch some new projects by March.

What I need from y'all is this.

If you are unable to donate, please share this. Please. My biggest obstacle has been getting this fundraiser shared. Please don't tag me due to some bad behavior by folks but yes please share where ever you can.

And if you have a buck, throw it in the bucket.

Thank you all for your amazing support and your love of my family we really appreciate it.

Love,
Shannon

Hi folks.

Good news! I've been able to pay off all but one remaining bill from our move. The last one is a biggie and is over $1000.

If we can fully fund this, we will be able to pay off that bill and replace my ruined winter coat and get some new pots and pans so we can do more cooking from scratch.

Thank you everyone for your support.

Even if you can't donate, please boost we appreciate it so much.

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!!

Y'all thank you so much. I've been able to take care of TWO bills that I'd forgotten about in the chaos of the move. That is amazing news.

All further funds raised will go towards my big looming last bill.

I've got 745.98$ left to raise and save.

What else have I been doing? All the hustle all the time.

Donors please watch for some thank you stuff.

And thanks for checking this out.
