Currently at least 800,000 federal employees are not getting paid, and we are quickly approaching a month since the shutdown began. This means being forced to go to work and not know when the next paycheck is coming.
As many of you know my sister Stephany Ulloa has been a community outreach and resource coordinator for almost 6 years, serving families with disabilites in need. This is not the first government shutdown she has faced, but this one couldn't have come at a worse time. Stephany works hard to support her family, not only working full time, but also striving to make a better life for them as a current paralegal student.
Stephany is a single mother of two boys a 9yr old son and a 8 month old son. The cost of raising an infant are insane, along with a special needs child, and everyday bills. It is all quickly adding up and getting more difficult by the day.
Though it is not being asked by my sister for this to be done, it is well deserved, and needed. We all struggle, and could use a helping hand sometimes. Sometimes life is completely out of our control, like in this situation.
Please do not feel obligated to donate, but if you are able it is more than appreciated. Good thoughts and prayers are just as appreciated.
