Betsy's Moving Fund

     After losing all my retirement money due to the 2008 Global Financial Crisis, I ended up also losing my home in 2013. I moved to a nice little rental house in South Sarasota where I expected to live out my days. But now, 4 years later, at my current age, 75, my landlord has effectively doubled my rent which I can't afford. Neither can I afford to move. But, I AM moving, downsizing once more, and I have no money to pay the movers. Will be doing as much advance packing as I'm physically able to, to defray moving costs. And I will enlist the help of friends to pre-move some packed boxes and garden things--large potted plants, my orchids, my lemon tree, etc.  But I still need movers to do some packing and then the actual move. Will unpack myself. The move must happen at the end of October and will cost $2400-2600, maybe less, maybe more. The funds must be in my bank by Oct. 30.
     All financial help will be gratefully and gracefully received. Thank You. Muchas gracias. Mille grazie, Merci. And LOVE to all.
