I just need a little money for food


I’ve found myself in a bit of a pickle ... I have been travelling for 18 months now. I made a few bad decisions and I no longer have any money. I am stuck in Mexico, I have no money to go somewhere else.
I’m trying to find work but in order to work, you need a work visa. In order to obtain a work visa, you need an offer of employment and it is proving rather difficult as it’s low season. 

I have been searching for two months without any luck or progress. I am currently volunteering at a hostel, doing the night shifts in return for free accommodation. But I could really do with some money for food. 

The work I am looking for is a Divemaster job. It is currently low season and nobody is hiring. But high season is in a couple of weeks and fingers crossed I will get something. My parents are not in a situation to help me and my friends have helped where they can.

It has been my dream for the last 10 years to become a Divemaster and I really want to be able to fulfil my dreams! 

I just need a little money for food until I am able to find a job and get myself back on my feet. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for any donation you are able to make!
