Single Mom in Need

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Monique and I am desperately asking for help, because I’m in a pickle.

Some of you may know my situation, some of you may not, but lately it feels like the universe is against me, and I just cannot catch a break.

I am a single mom, which in itself is not easy, factor in this economy + getting laid off + my abusive ex, it gets harder and harder to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

The reason why I agreed to let my friend create this go fund me, is because I have no other choice, but to rely on the kindness of friends, family, and strangers to try and keep a float.

Since the transmission blew on my van, I have been desperately trying to get it fixed or find a replacement.

I was lucky enough to have a friend loan me a vehicle, but now that loaner vehicle has got to go back to its original owner.

I am still unable to secure a permanent vehicle, and I only have two weeks to obtain another vehicle.

If I cannot, I will not be able to continue working nor will I have access to my children, since I have to drive 30kms every day, just in order to access time with them.

I need a miracle, I have not been able to get ahead. Every time I gain an inch I lose a mile. I have found an identical vehicle to mine on marketplace and have a friend that can help to use parts from that vehicle to fix mine, so I can continue to see my children and keep my new job I just started.

I know times are tough for so many, and I know my situation is not unique, but if you can spare anything to help buy a replacement vehicle, I will eternally be grateful.
