Surprise Apartment for my Hero

Hi, my name is Jeanine and I was recently laid off. Shortly before that, what little family I have moved 2000 miles away for work. I find myself struggling to find work here and was able to secure a job where they moved. However, without any income I've lost my savings trying to survive and can't afford the moving expenses to get there and the rental deposit for an apartment. 

My roommate decided to move with me and also secured a job at the new location. Losing my job was unexpected so he's taken on extra shifts to help with our current bills. He now works 12 hours/day, while also helping support his mom and sister. He's always looked out for me like a brother and puts everyone else's needs before his own. 

This past week he visited the ER and was diagnosed with Gastritis, which resulted from the stress he's been under and ignoring. Even with that he only took 2 days off work because he refuses to let anyone go without. I'm currently trying to sell everything I own to save up for moving expenses but it's nothing compared to what he's doing for us.

He his my hero and my greatest wish is to raise enough money so I can surprise him with the security of a moving trailer and an apartment ready so I can repay the kindness he's given to everyone else. Then he can finally rest and begin his new job that he truly deserves and is waiting for him. I could also start the new job waiting for me and be with family before the holidays.

Any help is greatly appreciated and once we're settled I plan to pay it forward and help someone else in need! Be sure to support your heroes, they're not always wearing capes <3
