Coronavirus impacted my livelihood with job loss.

Oregon Health Authority computer contract ended in 13 months on March 31, 2020, rather than the intended 18 to 24 months, due to Corona virus pandemic.  Was forced to bring back to CA, and not re-donate used furniture and kitchenware purchased from Goodwill because pandemic closed all channels of houseware  donations, Goodwil, Salvation Army, etc.  from which to make furniture and houseware donations. My original intention was to buy, use, and redonate the purchased used furniture.

On my way home pulling a uhaul trailer, I broke down in a construction zone in Oregon on Interstate 5; concrete construction barriers, 18 wheeler trucks all around me,  couldn't pull over on a shoulder with the overheated engine, no shoulder available, had to ride it out through the construction zone on I-5,  destroying the engine of a 2003 Dodge Durango. So, also had to rent one way a uhaul truck to get the uhaul trailer back to California.

Oregon apartment lease ended earlier than anticipated because original Oregon Government job contract agreement was terminated early, leaving me with a  mandatory $500 additional apartment painting and cleaning expense which would have been waived on my original 18 month lease agreement.

This gofundme page will help with balance of completing engine replacement of $4000.  My vehicle is still in Medford, OR, while I am back in the San Diego County, California area.

Whether you make a donation or not is not as important that any donation be from the heart.  "God loves a cheerful giver", is in reference to giving time, money, or assets to people or organizations you care about; the giving will become non-obligatory.  "Pasted smile giving" can opt out of my needs.

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7).

Any funds will remain in this account until my final engine payment is due, coming within a month or two. Thank You.
