Help with time to find employment

$8,748 of $9,500 goal

Raised by 118 people in 5 months
i am  55 years old, and in December 2016 had an illness called Rhabdomyolysis which almost killed me. This illness also came with an injury, which has left me to be considered  partially handicapped. After 2 months, I had recovered enough to begin driving for Uber to make ends meet. I did this very successfully for over a year, working 80 hours/week.  

in January 2018, Uber changed Insurance companies. On an annual account review in June, my driving record was deemed no longer acceptable to drive for Uber, as I had an at fault accident in 4/2016. No insurance payout, just a bump in the rear end, but on my record. No appeal possible. Upon inquiry, all other driving services I have found have the same policies.

This campaign is to ask for help with simple living expenses, as well as the cost of taking Uber/Lyft to job interviews. I was renting a car from Hertz to drive Uber, and had to turn that car in once deactivated as a driver. I will find something to earn money, as I am willing to do whatever I am now physically capable of to earn a living. I have been in Sales and Project Management for over 30 years, and any job leads in North Georgia would also be greatly appreciated.

The goal figure mentioned represents about 6 weeks of basic rent and grocery expenses, with the mentioned job interview transportation expenses. 

I am down to about a weeks worth of these expenses now, and would appreciate any help you could extend at this time. Things get really bad next week. Please feel free to spread this request to anyone who you think might be interested in helping. 

Thank you for listening to my story.

Good Evening all. This is Calm Mentor from the AOS prayer list. I'm sorry to contact you this way. AOS has recently asked that no GFMs be posted there.

I have had no luck in getting employers to respond to me during this 7 month ordeal. I can't tell if it is my age, physical status, or some other issue. I get no input.

I thank you four past help from the bottom of my heart. It has helped greatly in keeping me afloat. Unfortunately. I now find myself in the financial situation described in the campaign again. Any help that you could offer would be greatly appreciated. AI have mentioned in the past, my only family is a brother that I was helping financially. My "friends" were apparently only there due to a marriage that ended about 4 years ago. If I had somewhere else to turn, I would.

Thank you for reading. I can be reached at teboyletd@aol.com by anyone who would like to talk directly.

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you. With your help, I've had time to arrange two phone interviews and one personal interview for next week. You are good thoughts and prayers would be appreciated for these meetings. Tim
