Help Me Rebuild My Life After 14 Years in Prison

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Joanne, I am writing to humbly request your financial assistance through I recently completed a 14-year prison sentence in the United States and was released back into society with nothing. During my time in prison, I had a lot of time to reflect on my past mistakes and have worked hard to make positive changes in my life. Now that I am out, I am determined to stay on the right path and make the most of my second chance. Unfortunately, starting over is not easy, especially when you have nothing. I am in need of financial assistance to cover basic necessities like food, clothing, and shelter, as well as transportation costs, job training or education, and any other expenses related to getting back on my feet. I am committed to turning my life around and becoming a contributing member of society, and your support would go a long way in helping me achieve this goal. During the past decade of my incarceration, I grew an infinity to assist the downtrodden and help people from feeling the pains of abandonment when lost in the prison system. At times it may have been as slight as a warm hug or a small meal, and other times it would be to assist them in researching the legal opportunities to obtain their physical freedom. Now in my own freedom, I would like to continue in this ministry of compassion but find myself seeking the same kind outstretched hand to assist in a gentle tug to put me on my feet. Any amount you can donate will make a big difference in my life. Your donations will help me cover the costs of necessities and provide me with the resources I need to start a new life. I appreciate any support you can provide, whether it's a donation or simply sharing my campaign with your network. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and for your consideration. Your support means the world to me. Sincerely, Joanne
