Edit: I have bumped the goal up to $500 because we never thought we would meet the $300 goal. If we can make just $400 we could make our rent.
Edit: I have bumped the goal up as that would cover not 1 but 2 weeks of rent
My name is Kalani. My boyfriend and I recently moved to Alaska due to losing our home in Tennessee, my family up here was able to help us briefly, but we are now on our own. We are both young adults aged 20 and 22. We have bitter families who do not believe in helping, we have been told to figure it out ourselves, so here we are.
I found a job when I first moved up here but was ultimately fired for my disability. My partner and I lost our jobs, and though we have found jobs, we do not have the money to pay our rent that is due on 10/05/2022. After that, we will be homeless.
My grandmother is letting us shower at her home, and we are able to sleep in a gym at Covenant house downtown. But there are going to be a couple of weeks before we get paid. We are both getting paid bi-weekly. This is the time frame in which we need help. We need someone to watch our cats during this time frame so that we do not lose them. This fundraiser is for anyone who wishes to donate a few dollars. It will go directly to things we need immediately: food, water, and shelter for our cats and us. Anything helps at all; if you can't help, then even sharing would mean the world to us.
Thank you to the person who recommended that I set this up; I totally forgot that GoFundMe existed.
