PLEASE DONATE/SIGNAL BOOST TO HELP US GET A NEW HOME. // 3rd May 2014 // 4,200 notes
Hello, my name is Ezekiel and in the photo above is my mother. Things in our life have taken a twist that we were not expecting, me and my disabled mother are going to be homeless and literally living on the streets in probably a months time.
Recently a close family friend whom bought us the house we live in now shortly after we lost our last one after my Mom’s accident, died. He meant a whole lot to us and we miss him dearly but without him here his two daughters are trying to take our house away from us. Even though the house is paid off completely and he told them and everyone else that it was ours it was never put into my mother’s name because his death was a complete surprise and really shook our house around Christmas time. They are taking it to court on the 8th of this month and we should (hopefully) have a good 30 days to get out, or rather look for a new home.
My Mother is first of all disabled, she has a very very hard time walking and holding things, she is completely unable to work at this point in her life. When I was about 13 my Mom fell on the job as a teller and it started a chain reaction of medical issues. My mom has arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Multiple sclerosis, the disks in her spine are slowly fusing and her bones in her fingers are doing the same. SHE CAN NOT WORK. We live off her disability but as things are it isn’t enough for us to put away some for a place to live and survive at the same time.
My Mom is trying her best to keep our home but it isn’t looking very promising, so I’m on the mission to find us an apartment or a house to rent-to-own.
I’ve talked it over with my mom and we think we’re going to need about 1000$ dollars to do this move, put things in storage, and start to make ourselves a new life just four years after we last did this. I’m currently job hunting to the best of my abilities but I have no experience and not many people are looking to hire an 18 year old high school kid.
You might be thinking “don’t you have family to help you guys?” well funny thing is we don’t. My mom lost both her parents at a very young age and divorced my abusive father when I was only a few months old. My mom is the strongest woman I know and I just want to make this a little easier for her, so I’m reaching out to all of you on the internet.
If you can boost this or just give a dollar it would mean the world to us, anything helps and it would honestly mean our lives if you could help us by just giving a dollar. If every single one of my followers donated only a single dollar, we could probably make sure me and my mother don’t live on the streets.
Please please reblog this or donate using the button on my tumblr page. Thank you for your time.
Please friends, if you can spare even a few dollars it would be incredibly helpful!!! Zeke is one of my dearest friends and he has always been so strong and fought his way through so much. So yeah really there’s only so much I can say— His family is in pretty dire straights and they need help! Please help!
