Help Brandon get reestablished

Hello! As of a few months ago I no longer live in New York with my boyfriend, I had to move last minute, very unexpectedly, because it was not a situation where we could safely cohabitate. Because my name is on the lease, I am still responsible for partial rent in New York, while also trying to stay afloat in Denver living off of unemployment. I was laid off from my job in March due to COVID and of the hundreds of applications I have sent out over the months since then I have not had a single call back or interview, a disheartening first for me. The restaurant industry may never recover, and it certainly won’t recover in time for me to recoup my finances I lost during the move (furniture I left behind, cost of shipping things I could keep, cost of moving into a new apartment, rent I owe my ex). I need help to get back on my feet during this uncertain transition period in my life. Any amount helps! I wouldn’t be asking if I didn’t truly need it.
