Please help me move for new job!

Hello, family and friends! I hope this message finds you all well! I’m reaching out with an appeal for financial assistance in this season of transition in my life. As some of you may know, 2018 has just been a horrible year for me. Although it started off pretty promising, I was laid off my job in May and lost my biological mother two weeks later. While I’ve been pushing through and looking for a new job since then, I’ve had to have a couple rounds of blood transfusions and address other medical issues without any health insurance, incurring ridiculously expensive medical bills.

Though these situations have been sometimes overwhelming, God is still faithful. I was offered a  great position, still doing amazing work in college and career access beginning in September. This is an amazing opportunity but it requires me to relocate from Philadelphia to the NYC metro area. 

I hate to ask for help in this way, but this summer has been financially draining and I’ve been stressing out trying to figure out how I can afford this move in order to begin work in mid-September. So I turn to you, my village. I realize that 2018 has been rough on so many of us and I completely understand the sacrifice. However, if you are willing and able, I greatly appreciate any financial assistance anyone can offer to assist. Maybe you wanted to give me a belated birthday gift. Maybe you’ve been looking to sew into someone’s life. Maybe you just love me enough to part with a few dollars to help. Regardless of your reasoning, I am incredibly grateful for any and all consideration. 

If you can’t offer financial assistance, I ask that you seek the throne on my behalf, asking the Savior to guide and sustain me  in all ways. 

Thank you for your consideration and I appreciate your time reading this appeal.
