Washington Post Mom

Hello! My name is Shelbie Selewski and I’m from MI. I was featured in the The Washington Post story about people being behind on their rent and utilities. I lost my job in the spring and have had to stay home with my young daughter who was born with a collapsed lung right before Covid (Dec) and was hospitalized for two months after at Childrens. I have tirelessly tried to find employment along with my Fiancé but with Vada (daughter) being compromised and my 7 year old in Virtual School it has proven incredibly difficult. We have sold everything we could possibly sell and with that have always paid our bills as much as possible but it feels like every day something else comes up. From shut offs to actually being shut off, there is not a moment that I wish this Pandemic had never happened. I have never thought to make a GoFundMe but with Christmas approaching I just didn’t know what else to do.  We would be grateful for any help. The money will go directly to keeping our lights on this holiday season and trying to pay some rent so we aren't evicted. Any leftover money will go toward the kids.
