Help a widow and her children

Donation protected
Hi! My name is Marie-Eve Mongrain. I am a 38 year old mom of two girls, aged 7 and 8. My husband, the girls’ dad, died in 2017 of cancer, leaving me behind with two babies aged 6 months and 2.5 years old. It had been 6.5 years and I educated myself and started a business as a lifecoach (marieevemongrain.com), but have not gotten any clients to pay our living expenses. I have had a podcast, with a chance to appear on a billboard in Times Squares, and helping many people heal and grow. I believe in the “law of attraction” and help people manifest amazing things in their life. At the moment we are living on government benefits with very limited resources. I have set up an Amazon store (www.amazon.ca/shop/mariemongrain90) (https://www.amazon.ca/shop/mariemongrain90)) and have not made enough profits to be able to live from that money..

In November, I had to leave my house near Montreal since the owner was repossessing it for his dad, and I ended up using my kids REEEs (post secondary education funds) to buy a camper and go down south in California to spend winter as it is warmer than Canada. You cannot live in this camper in such a cold weather we have in Canada.

I use our money for us to pay for gas and camping fees so we can charge our camper battery, buy some groceries, our car expenses, phone fees, storage facilities and sometimes some activities for kids.

We are surviving on child benefits and survivor pension plan, but we can’t do much as it is not enough.

In the past two months, we have gone down the East coast, across the USA to Vegas and down to California, all sleeping in Cracker Barrells parking lot and Boondocking in the past weeks. We have been lucky to find food banks to allow us have amazing produces.

I am homeschooling my girls in the camper and saving from our life experiences. The girls love getting dirty, baking, painting and being creative. They also love the beach and Minecraft. They are very social expressive. I feel bad as a mom that I don’t get to give them a life full spectrum of activities and tourist attractions as we travel across the country. We have done some activities which are free but it is not always possible.

At this point, I have 1.35$ CDN left in my account and thank God there is some money coming at the beginning of the month to pay the bills and I will have extra for our living, but any help is appreciated! All the money goes towards us not stressing out about where we will eat or be tomorrow.

We thank you so much for your support!

I do believe life is happening for us, so I choose this circumstance is happening f
or us.

May your day be as awesome as you are!
