Hi my name is Philipp Weiss the last few months have been very difficult for my family both emotionally and financially. I live with my fiance and my two year old son. Recently I lost my job of 3 years after a workplace injury which made it difficult to perform my duties. While I have been seeking new employment my fiance has paid the brunt of the bills and expenses. Just weeks ago she experienced a bout of illness we were given the bad news by her doctor that she was being medically forced into disability which means she would be forced to resign her position at work. The combination of these two events has sent us into a spiral the last two months from which we are having a difficult time recovering. On top of it all the recent events involving hurricane Irma have taken their own toll as preperations and rations on top of the ridiculous price gouging here in south florida have taken their toll on our already slim budget.
Our landlord has now ordered us to vacate the premises immediately or face eviction proceedings. I have sought help from every avenue imaginable from government assistance to local charities, I have even asked friends and family. All of this has brought me here. This is my last option. I am not asking for anyone to pay so I can live for free only to help my family so we might be able to find a new which is safe for our son.
I have estimated that 6000 dollars should be enough to pay our back rent, moving expenses and find new housing before we are removed from our current home. I cant convey how desperate our situation is in this post.
If you can not donate I completely understand I only ask that you please pass this campaign on to those you know in hopes that someone may be able to assist us in our time of need in any small way.
The funds are needed as soon as possible due to the fact that we are currently being asked to leave our home and every day that passes brings us closer to possible forceful eviction, which would render us homeless. I have a 2 year old son, I cant risk not having a place for us to live.
I close in saying thank you to anyone who has read this and donated or shared I'll keep you updated on our situation as it progresses and let everyone know how we are doing.
