Relocation Loan Replacement Funds

So this is embarrassing. I'm moving. I applied for, and was promised, a relocation loan, that was supposed to be deposited on June 15th. The lender has rescinded the promised loan, because they can't understand that I am named for my mother (we are co-signers to the loan). Because I am named for her, although we have different initials, different social security numbers, and are two different people, they say that the information on the application "doesn't match" and there can't be two of us. I pointed out that if I was male, and I was named for my father with "Jr." attached, this wouldn't be an issue. The misogynistic response? "Men carry the lineage." Um, no. But I'm not getting the promised money, which was part of the necessary budget.

Anyway, I need to make up that difference, that was part of the moving budget, fast. Movers are here on the 21st. If a bunch of my followers tossed in $5-$10, it would go a long way.

I'm so embarrassed to even ask, but needs must. And I will pay it forward, as soon as I'm moved, and I can!

Thanks! Any amount is deeply appreciated.
