I know these posts are often frowned down upon but I wanted to call out to as many people as I can.
Hi, I’m Sierra. My birthday is next week and I will be turning sixteen.
My dad is the only one making money in our family, my mom’s epilepsy makes her unable to work. Last night he OD’d saying that we will have more income with him dead than alive. It didn’t work, not saying that it just didn’t but because I told the cops. He had messaged our landlord saying that he didn’t want to faced with our electricity going off and being homeless again so he was going to kill himself. With that, my landlord called the police, who were going to leave dismissing the case, but I stopped them. I feel like shit. He’s in ICU at the moment and he might be transferred to the psych ward which lasts a minimum of three days.
Our electricity is scheduled to go off on the 11th. Three days. We have no money and no source of income to get that money with him in the hospital in such a compromised state. I don’t know what to do.
We can’t go to a shelter because of my mom and younger brother both having epilepsy. It’s counted as a risk and they won’t take them in. There are six of us; my parents, me, my younger brothers (6 & 10) and my younger sister who’s 4.
We’re are destined to lose our house if we don’t pay $900 by mid September. Our electricity will go out in three days if we don’t pay $600 dollars by then. With the electricity being out, our landlord will be furious as he lives downstairs in our closed off basement area. We are in a hole and I’m currently the ‘strongest’ person of us. I have school right around the corner. I can’t do this. Our car was stolen about a month ago from someone whom we accepted in our house so they could get back on their feet. We have no vehicle now. If someone has any ideas on what we could do, please let me know.
I opened a GoFundMe as I’ve literally have no clue how to work PayPal. You can also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can not donate, please at least signal boost this. Thank you for your time.
We’re at $55 dollars at the moment and that is incredible as it is. Please do signal boost this as much as you can. Every dollar counts.
1400 of you on here. I know I haven’t been on in ages but it means a lot to me and my family.
