Bus Life : Our New Home NEEDS REPAIR

Recently my daughter and I faced the challenge of losing our home, finances/expenses were more than we could afford. In our attempt to make the best out of a bad situation, and with limited time and minimal funds, we purchased a bus to live in and get us to and from work. With only 2 weeks to vacate our home, we decided this was the best and only option. We decided the universe believed we could, so we did! The funds we raised to save our home was not enough to save it so we took the money and purchased this bus…we had to leave 90% of our belongings, re-home beloved pets and ultimately lost it all. We only took what we could fit on our new bus. We drove our new vehicle/home around for 4 days, getting settled, trying to adjust to city restrictions regarding parking and we are both back to work...almost as soon as things were looking up, our little bus broke down. We spent most of the money on the bus and now we are stranded on a residential road and legally cannot stay here.  The challenge is, we dont know 100% what's wrong with it, towing to a shop with an unexpected repair cost is terrifying. We live in this bus with our furry friends and we’re trying to figure out a solution.  We have met lovely neighbors who are watching out for us, they suggested a GoFund me page to which we were hesitant at first, but after brainstorming and trying our best for several days, agreed to do this. Truth is we can't stay, we need to get her to a shop to get her repaired before time runs out and our home is towed away and impounded which would create an even bigger problem for us.   We really have been through so much within the last year, but we are trying to stay positive and keep pushing ahead despite a string of bad luck that was not within our control. This is our journey, we appreciate any help! Thank you Becci and Monell
