Hey guys, Amanda and Jeremy here. We're a couple who is expecting a baby on March 13th, 2021. A beautiful baby boy to be exact, Gauge Mathis Payne. Currently, we are in a little bit of a car payment issue due to being unemployed for almost two months during the pandemic. Together we have been surviving day to day, living on friends couches and trying to earn money working for doordash and postmates. But living day to day out of your only vehicle and trying to stay afloat while waiting on either unemployment or a job offer that can get you back on your feet gets extremely stressful. The great news is that Jeremy has found a job in his profession as a Plumber. He started work the week of September 20th. We now see a light at the end of a very long and dark tunnel. As of right now we are in process of losing our car. Our car is not only our transportation but also our home and source of income we're able to make. We have gone through all our belongings and have gotten rid of anything worth value to be able to get our basic bills paid but the one we have had a hard time getting the money for is the car payment. We are almost one month behind and have been trying to work with the company our loan is thru but since we have only had the car since May they aren't willing to help us even though we have kept up contact and even offered to make a payment of what we can by the end of the month and then be caught up by the end of October at the latest. The response we were given was we have to pay in full plus our late fee due to it being a new account they wouldn't be able to work with us until next month. Once it's forwarded to the next department our fees will go up drastically and there is a much larger chance of our car getting repossessed. This is our last method of help we could think of to get us through until Jeremy's paychecks start coming. Our payment for the car is due September 30th. Jeremy's first check will be here the first Friday of October. The full payment including the late fee is $363. We are asking for $500 so that we can get a little ahead for October's payment which is due on the first. At this point we are praying for help and have tried getting help from charities and the state. It just seems to be a bad time of the month to ask for assistance. Please, anything right now will help. Our biggest worry and stress now is losing all of what we have left, our home and our way of getting to and from work, doctors appointments and our means of survival. We greatly appreciate and thank you for your time, God Bless.
