Help Angel Stay Afloat

Hello all and happy holidays! I never expected to create a a fundraiser for such a personally humbling thing. That said, I don’t think I stand a chance without it. 

In October of 2019, I discovered evidence of a crime in my home. I attempted to ask my roommates about these items and was immediately met with pushback, anger, and intimidation. I was assaulted by a pair of men attempting to cover their trail of crime and intimidate me into aiding their activities. One of the men, unfortunately, was a roommate. Once they realized I would not be silent or complicit in their wrongdoings and recklessness, they proceeded to put a beat down on me. I received a concussion and 5-6 contusions on my face and skull. I was somewhat fortunate that there were multiple cases against these men and they have since been brought to justice. That said, however, this attack left me battered and bruised for a month and half. This attack also forced my landlord to evict one roommate, and for me to continue to stay, I had to come up with another half of the deposit, and make up the difference in rent going forward.

Now, I’m a server.  Understandably, with my face looking like something from CSI, I wasn’t able to work my full-time serving job or return to the theatre for a few days. 

I’ve done all I can to help myself get back on track but it’s too big a deficit for one person in my position  to overcome. 
While I am still in the process of civil suit, the fact remains that I have fallen into a financial strait that I can’t seem to navigate alone. The combined extra expenses on rent and bills paired with the lost weeks of work and the hospital bill and it all has brought me to an impasse and I have to ask my community for help. 

If you can find it in your heart to help this hopeful kid make ends meet this month, I know somewhere down the line you’ll see the spiritual return. I’m sorry if this news is a disappointment. I don’t like to lead on that things are hard but things are very, very hard. 

Anything helps. 1 dollar.  Even a share, repost or a personal response. Thank you all so much for reading and hearing and please feel free to reach out with questions.
