Looking for some help - A story in three screenshots
Summary: Amidst challenging times, I'm contacting the community for assistance. While I've detailed my story below with some accompanying screenshots, there's also more information on the linked GoFundMe page.
My Situation: Just when I believed I'd hit my lowest point, last week proved me wrong. The funds had depleted, and I had just enough to cover a month's rent. Sharing my plight on the Facebook Group (refer to the 2nd image) was a cry for help, and the response was heartwarming. Members of our community uplifted me with their kindness, advice, and tangible support. Some assisted with essentials for my dog, while others initiated video calls, exploring potential professional opportunities with me.
The Fundraiser: This initiative was born from the encouragement of several 10C members who extended their help. Historically, I've been someone who's managed to navigate life's hurdles without external assistance. However, as I explore new professional avenues beyond my two-decade-long career, I recognize the urgent need for a stable income. This led me to consider driving for Uber/Lyft.
How You Can Help: My current challenge is obtaining a suitable vehicle for this venture. The used car market prices are steep, making it challenging to make an outright purchase. I aim to acquire a fuel-efficient vehicle like a Prius or Niro, reducing operational costs. While a used Tesla with complimentary supercharging would be perfect, it remains a distant dream due to financial constraints.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. Your presence and empathy are genuinely appreciated, even if you cannot assist. Your willingness to step into my shoes, if only for a moment, means the world to me.
