Help a WordPress Professional Find a New Beginning

Donation protected
Hi WordPress friends

My name is Tia and I am a professional in the WordPress community. I am reaching out for support during a challenging time for my family & I with the hope that we can finally find stability and safety in our everyday lives.

For the past year, my son, our beloved family pets, and I have been experiencing homelessness, moving around from hotel to hotel, and almost ending up in our vehicle a few times.

Just two years ago, my son was valedictorian at his school. We both had so much potential and hope. But I lost my job during the end of covid and it created an avalanche of loss and instability.

It's been a tough journey, but we've remained resilient and are now on the brink of turning things around, getting parts of our lives stable one by one.

He loves to bake and cook. He works as a line cook with aspirations to grow his skills. I am working on building a WordPress related company that helps support businesses and contribute knowledge to the WP community.

Still, we face difficult daily challenges that make transitioning into a stable home difficult. We lack good sleep. Clothes are washed and dried by hand. There is barely any room to do anything.

My son loves to bake but cannot practice his skills as we have no stove or oven. The location isn't exactly safe. Every single penny of our income goes into keeping a roof over our head and transportation.

We need help to transition into a more stable living situation closer to my son's work and into a permanent place to call home.

You can help the following ways:

  • Share this campaign (or social media post that it came from) with a short description about what we are trying to do
  • Contribute directly to this gofundme
  • Contribute via cashapp ($stompingunicorns) or venmo (@lizzylinn, last 4 of phone # is 4079)
  • If you have any WordPress related projects, please send them my way!
  • If you happen to own a WP plugin, theme, or related company: reach out to me for website or newsletter sponsorship.
  • If you are a WP related agency: I can help with overflow work

The funds raised through this campaign will be used to cover crucial expenses to help us make that transition into stable housing, including:

  • Residential application fees
  • Deposit & first months rent
  • Utility activation fees
  • Minor car repairs (oil change, fixing tire sensors, rotating tires, repair headlights, etc)
  • Furniture (we've lost everything. Having to start over: at least two beds, places to sit, kitchenwares)
  • Gofundme fees
  • Any unused amount will go into a savings account to help keep us stable

I am thankful having access to a hotel room keeps us off the streets, but it's not sustainable for the long term. With your support, we can secure a place to call home and create a stable environment where my son and family pets can thrive and put this awful experience behind us.

Every donation, no matter how small, even a share, will make a meaningful difference in our lives. Your generosity will directly contribute to our journey towards stability and independence, and help us put the past behind us.

We've come a long way, but we still have a bit further to go. With your help, we can make this transition asap and start a new chapter filled with hope and opportunity.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering our cause and for any support you're able to provide. A home and stability feels like a dream. ❤️ Here's hoping that dream comes a reality.

With gratitude,
Tia & Family
