Help Eli

Dear friends;

I am embarrassed to have to do this, but I need your help.

After I was assaulted while riding on my bicycle early last month, I racked up several repair and medical bills. Then, this month, I fell very ill and had to take off work. Just as I was recovering, I fractured my left heel and had to take off even more work. Needless to say, there have been more medical and medication bills.

Of course, the regular bills never stopped. There were weeks when I couldn't even afford to do my laundry.

I basically have no cash right now, with my rent due in just over a week. Additionally, the place that rents me a storage locker is threatening to auction it all off if I miss a single additional payment.

The money I'm asking for will go to cover my June rent and to pay off the storage locker company so they'll let me move out my things and get them out of my hair.

I'm back to work as of tonight, although in a lot of pain from my foot, so once these immediate debts are taken care of, my situation should be stable again.

Any amount at all will be appreciated. I'm not exaggerating, even a couple of dollars can be the difference in doing my laundry!

Thank you again, my friends, and sorry again to have to ask this of you.
