Help start our business so we can pay our bills

Hi, my name is Richard Vidair. I’m setting up this page because my wife Melissa and I are starting a new business. We are both licensed insurance agents and need money for start up costs like digital marketing, advertising, and equipment. We also have a couple of debts we need to pay off. We were hit very hard by COVID-19 and all the travel restrictions associated with it. We previously owned an airport transport business, but the travel ban that was in place for over 3 months caused our business to fail. We have been without incomes since March. Because we are both in a high risk category for COVID, we are starting our insurance business and will be able to work from home. This has been a devastating time for us as we have lost so much. We are struggling to buy food and pay our bills. We applied for food stamps but we only got approved for $16 a month and we didn’t qualify for unemployment benefits. We would truly be blessed by any support as well as encouraged.  We need the funds right away so we can start earning and pay our bills and buy food. It would be a fresh start for us both. We thank you for your support.
