Help Me Make Our Dreams Come True

Hello, friends!

My son and I are facing a lot of big life changes in the near future and, in the midst of it, I have been laid off from one of my two jobs. This leaves me with less than $600 a month to afford bills and food and things for my one year old son. I am also planning to attend graduate school in the Fall, and in order to move into our own place and get on our feet, I'm going to have to struggle. I am looking for another job, but my options are few and far between thus far. What I'm asking for is help. I am not asking for a hand out, per se. I am asking for assistance. I have always, always donated to causes like this when I have the money. I have always worked hard. Now, I find myself in dire straits and I am imploring you all to find a little charity in your hearts to help us get through the next several months. I promise that, if you help fund our dreams, I will pay it forward, in full, to someone else who is in need of help.
