I'm a single mom with 2 boys (ages 12 and 8). We have been impacted by the government shutdown, I thought I was prepared but I wasn't prepared for it last this long especially so soon after Christmas.  It has taken me days to ask for help through GoFundMe.  I haven't struggled like this since I was growing up.  My kids don't know the kind of life I had cause I never wanted them to grow up the way I did.  I've never wanted to tell my kids we can't do this or eat this because I don't have the money.  This shutdown became really real when we missed my first paycheck and we are about to miss the next one.  I am retired Navy and blessed to at least get a retirement check , but I still have bills to cover.

I  am normally the one that helps people out, I have given my last to family and friends.  I have opened my home to people in need.  I am hoping someone can do the same for my family.

I like to consider myself a strong individual but truth is this shutdown has broke me down. Any assistance that my family and I can get will be much appreciated.  Also any amount over my goal I will pay it forward and help another furlough employee(s).  Thank you in advance for the acts of kindness.

I would once again like to thank everyone that has reached out to my family and I with donations and words of encouragement. As you know they have opened the government for 3 weeks and we can only hope that they reach a deal to keep the government open. We don’t know when we will get paid but with your donations we will be all right. And I will still help my coworkers until they get paid too. Thank you so much for the kindness you have shown us.

Thank you!!! I’m amazed at all the help provided to my family. There are no words to express how grateful I am to you. With your help I was able to bless 3 of my coworkers as you have blessed me.

And thank you for the words of encouragement!!

I am absolutely blown away from all the support and love that is being shown to my family. Situations like the government being closed and having my fellow Americans reaching out makes me feel honored to have your support. Thank you so much!!!
