Anything Helps! -Swift

Hi team!! Today, I've been left no choice but to swallow my pride and ask for your help. Last year, I did what many have said not to do; I put all my eggs in one basket by deciding to partner up at #ML108. As a new owner, I made some mistakes, but my drive, passion, and motivation never faltered. Because of a criminal decision made by someone I undoubtedly trusted, and more importantly, someone I met when I was 11 years old, I've literally lost everything! Some will lead you to believe that I lost #ML108 because I'm a drug addict... THE MOST ABSURD RUMOR and can't be further from the truth. Here's why:I will apprehensively lay my heart in front of you now. I lost both parents at the age of 9 to drugs. I've been on my own since that age. At age 11, I was adopted by an angel, Leyda, a single mother of 4... (This is the time I was introduced to my former business partner.) I tried my hardest be be invisible so as to not lose my home. I liked it there. I joined the US Army in 2003. My birth mother struggled with her addiction until she took her own life while I was deployed to Iraq in 2006... A devastating loss I still struggle with today. My birth father was the culprit who introduced my mother to drugs. Suffice it to say, I don't know of him. If you follow my social media, you know im attached to my two children. Repeating the mistakes both my parents made, which led to my abandonment as a child, is ludicrous!! My life's path is to succeed so that my kids don't have to feel my struggle. The vicious attack of my character set forth by a man I considered family in order to hide his criminality is soul crushing. So here's the danger I currently face due to this unforeseen betrayal:This morning (September 7th) I received notice my car is soon to be repossessed ($950 behind)I'm pending eviction from my home if I can't become current on the rent by 1 Oct ($3800 behind). I own a house in Texas to which I'm also behind on. In July, my tenant moved out, taking with him my washer, dryer and refrigerator. I haven't been able to rent it again without a fridge and don't have the money to buy a new one. I've put the house on the market for sale, however no offers since July. I've also recently received a foreclosure notice ($4500 behind). I also have other bills coming to a head, but you all get the point. I'm presently enrolled in school, to which I get paid for by the military, but my first check will be in October... That first check will only cover a portion of my rent... I don't know if I can make it past September. I'm asking for my friends to assist in any way possible, in that ANY THING HELPS!! Thank you all for reading my plead. Love and blessings to you all!!❤️ ❤️-Christian "Swift" Ortiz [phone redacted] [email redacted]
