Someone I love needs help

I have a member of my family that has found herself in a serious predicament: In a foreign place with no money, little work, and very little hope for the near future, this person is one step away from homelessness in one of the most populous cities in the world. Her health is failing her and she is losing hope. Rent, food, utilities, all of this can't be afforded right now, by her. Thankfully I can give her rent and utilities which are due 8/13. Heading to the bank now. But one cannot eat electricity. Or stay healthy with the internet. This beautiful person didn't choose to live where she does. A victim of circumstance, of a love gone awry, and false promises, lies, and infidelity. This situation has gone on for months and months, she has struggled through it all, but I recently found out that things have taken a turn for the worse. I'm afraid for my loved ones life. I'm afraid that not getting help now, which is desperately needed, will result in me losing her. She has two cats that mean the world to her, and few people in Mexico that care enough to help her. She has people in Argentina , where she lived for a decade, and just wants to go back as she has a small support network there, unfortunately exchange rates being what they are and economies being what they are, those people can't help her move or pay her rent. I can't sit by and do nothing. Just as I can't solve the situation, alone. I feel helpless. I have to reach out to all of you. I have to ask of you, more than I would ever ask for myself. We've all been there, in need and unwilling to ask for help. I feel I've never asked EVERYone for money before, and I hope to never do it again. The number I've set as the goal is arbitrary. The need is immense. If someone you loved was ill and going to find themselves homeless, whether in a different country or not, you would want to help them... That's all I want, is to help. I cannot afford to do this on my own. I don't want to burden anybody with this, just as my family member did not want to burden me. I wasn't asked to do this, I chose to do it. I want to do it. I need to do it. I would never forgive myself if I let this happen without trying to do something. I'm willing to get a second job. I'm willing to give every spare Cent I have, but spending $3,000+ a semester on grad school is straining my bank account more than I care to admit, and my mortgage and car payment won't be ignored. So I have to ask all of you, to please give what you can: $10, $20, $50, 100, whatever it is. It will all add up. And will go a long way in Mexico and/or Argentina (pesos). I know I have special friends. There is a great deal of love in my life. And I know that none of us are rich. But all we have is our community and if we're not willing to take care of those of us that really need the help, at their lowest point when it's truly needed, what do we expect those people to do? Wither away into Oblivion? I think not. I would hope not. Please, help save my aunt. I promise to never ask again. The money will go to Food, legal fees, and a plane ticket back to Buenos Aires, the place she was before she was stranded in Mexico City by her husband that now lives in Miami, without a single care for her. I will never ask you for this again. I only ask that you give what you can. Yes, some of the money, a small percentage, will go to this website, but it's so convenient. And it's so important. Thank you for your time and consideration of my request. Much love and Light.
