HELP My Mom - Government Shutdown

Donation protected
As many are aware the president has called for a government shutdown.

I am 14 years old who is in 8th grade and my brother is 12 years old who is in the 6th grade. What the president does not know, my mommy is not a democrat or a republican she is an independent. An independent mom who works for the federal government. My mom is a single mom of 2 boys trying to make ends meet.  My mom does not get help from the state, she works really hard to provide for me and my brother. She raises us to know that education is #1.  She is a strong independent woman. The last few weeks have been really hard. My mom was in the process of trying to move so my brother and i can have our own room.  This has come to a stop now.  Because she has not received her pay check and interest rates have gone way up. In addition, our lease is up and we don't know what we are going to do. My brother and I came up with an idea... If we can get help, we can help our mom for a couple of weeks so she doesn't have to go on unemployment, she mentioned she has to pay all loans and unemployment back and i know that will be just another stress for her.

My mom needs new glasses for the new year because she lost her old pair. Shes afraid to go to the doctor because she will have to pay.  I think its kind of funny, that my mom now ask me to read whats on the TV, or hands me a piece of paper and say " Robert read this".  Prescription Meds, I know she has not picked up. Gas, to pick us up for school. Rent, her bills.  We need lunch money and groceries for our home. My little brother drinks 2 gallons a week, cause hes a growing boy and he loves cereal. My mom has given her life to the country and has worked for the government for the last 10 years. i feel so sad for her. 

My mom cant get a second job because we are her second job.  She picks us up and drops us off to school everyday and also take us to our sports every day. 

My brother and I are reaching out to the world to see if we can raise enough money so that she doesn't have to worry anymore. We just want her to relax and know that everything will be okay, despite her job in jeopardy. 

Thank you world for reading this. 

God Bless Everyone as they go through this difficult time in America!
