Just A Single Mom on a Mission.

This campaign is a personal journey I'm taking as a mom.

I don't know if there are other moms out there that can relate to me. If you can, consider donating what you can.  I'm just throwing this out into the universe in the hopes that someone is listening.

Here's our story.

I met my best friend online in 1999. We formed a friendship for the ages and when I got pregnant in 2007, we became parents together by pure happenstance. Together, we grew our family, raised our daughter, built our business, reached goals, made memories, got married, shared friends, family, and pets, and when all was said and done, amassed 20 years together. 

A week before Thanksgiving in 2019, she packed her things and left. She was leaving for a woman she met on the internet that she'd never met in real life. She moved in with her sister and that was the last we saw of her. Before she left, she chuckled and looked our daughter in the face and said, "People break up all the time; you'll be fine." 

That's where she becomes my daughter only and where I ask the universe to bless me as she has to date; I want to turn that life altering statement into a positive thing for her. It changed her inside; her bright and infectious smile was gone, her best friend vanished into thin air. She became reclusive and hopeless.

I watched her as a mother and realized that I had the power to change that narrative; so began a transformation of our life to show her that YES we would be just fine without her. I started helping my daughter express herself, I helped her engage in her interests, make friends, get active, address body image issues, and all around help to build her self esteem.

Now, here's the conundrum I'm currently in; I have run my eBay business successfully for 12 years but when COVID-19 hit, I lost 80% of my income. After I spent all of my savings to pay our bills, I quickly realized that there was not an end in sight to the drop in sales. At that point, I secured another full time job.  I am now working two full time jobs and schooling my daughter but being under and unemployed for so many months has taken me down to nothing. I am hoping to regain my footing even just a little.

My current needs:

1. Wardrobe for daughter
2. Camera for work
3. FUNCTIONING phone for daughter
4. In DESPERATE need of reliable transportation
5. Deep Freezer for meal prep so I can work
6. I am $300 behind on my rent due 10/01/2020

I know the worst that happens is what's happening now, and that's nothing. But at least I know I put it out there. Be well and stay safe. Thank you. <3
