Save Donte

Please help me give my little brother his flowers while he's still here! 2020 has been extremely hard for everyone but it has hit him even harder. 

In Donte's early 20's, he was diagnosed with Schizophrenia and PTSD.  He was cared for by his single mother and two sisters. While successfully working two jobs, he was able to move out on his own and take care of himself.  In March of 2020 he lost one of his jobs. Then his health insurance.  Still hanging on to his home and one job, he started using drugs and drinking heavy because of his mental health. In August of 2020, he lost his second job and home.  He hit rock bottom. After also turning 30 in August, he decided to change his life starting with rehab! After completing 60 days in rehab, he'll have a job waiting for him with nowhere to go. 

I'm asking for donations to help Donte with 1st months rent and security deposit for a new place to live independently. No donation is too small!

You can also send donations to cash app: $trusie or apply pay for iPhone users.
