Disabled Veteran in Need

Hi there.

I'm Kelly, otherwise known as TheDarkPreacher. I'm a disabled Marine Veteran with PTSD. And I need your help.

My wife informed me that there was an error in her pay this paycheck, and that we are not going to be able to pay all our bills this month, let alone try and move.

The reason why we are trying to move is for health reasons. Our next door neighbor has decided that he needs to share his habit with the rest of the building, and every other week, our apartment fills up with his marijuana smoke.

I have stress induced asthma, which is linked to my PTSD. Smoke of any kind triggers an asthma attack for me these days and when that happens, it triggers a small panic attack. We have complained multiple times to our landlord, but since they have been looking for any excuse to get us out of this apartment for the last year so they can rent it to one of their friends, she hasn't done anything about it. We are trying to move into a house that the rent is cheaper than what we are paying now, with an option to buy it after a year, but if we can't cover our bills, we might be evicted, have our car repo'd or have our electric shut off. If we do pay the bills, that means we have no money left over for food, or even any money to move out with. We're looking for about $1500 by the end of the month to cover either our major bills or to cover moving costs and groceries.  

Thank you for reading this, watching the video, and all I ask is that you share the campaign, share the video, and if you possibly can, donate.

God Bless and Semper Fi.
