Bum Thief Broke My Jeep Window fund

Thank you in advance for checking out my GoFundMe page.

As most of you know I have been working two jobs since November to try to save for my Tiny House on wheels. As some of you know, I have been working 70-80 hours/week to save as much as possible before the THOW arrives. As a few of you know, 80 hours/week is my cut-off for losing my mind. I need at least one day off a week to rest and recoup.

There was no resting or recouping this Sunday. Only anger, a sense of betrayal, and the ensuing depression.

My car was broken into at some point Saturday night. All of my tips from Friday were stolen. They totaled about $315. The money was hidden in my car as I was going to deposit it that night after work. I checked it between 4:00-5:00PM when there was a slight lull in my shift.

Not only has this thief robbed me, but he has robbed others of their good intentions toward me and my life. He has robbed me of my sense of security and made me more than a little vexed with my car. He's robbed me of the $315 in hard-earned tips and the $300+ it will cost to fix the window he broke.

I have to write two very big checks in the next week (one for the down payment on my land the other for the remaining balance for my THOW shell) and this $600+ swing is coming at exactly the wrong time. If you can, please consider sending just a few dollars to help me recoup this loss. It would be more appreciated than you know.

Thank you again for everything so far! Thanks to you I'm a little more than halfway there. I close on my property on Monday and my Tiny House gets delivered this Sunday, so I'm hoping for one last push to get me to my goal.
Coming soon!
