I have never had to ask anyone for help and I can honestly state that this past year has been a rough one for me. I going through a rough divorce and recently became unemployed. I am a hard working individual and feel that within 3 months I will be back on my feet; however, at this point I just need funds to pay my rent, utilities, and car insurance. I am looking for employment and believe that I will not have a problem in finding a job. The reason why I am unemployed is simply that my recent employer encountered financial problems and has been unable to pay me my last month's wages. I am working to recover those wages; however, the bills are due. I need about $1,500 to pay $1,069 in rent and late fees that were due on January 1, $61 to pay the electric bill that is due on January 11, $186 to pay for car insurance, and some money for food and gas. As I stated previously, I will get back on my feet, one day I will again be successful, and I will find ways to help other people who find themselves in the situation that I am in. Please do not hesitate to contact me or ask me any questions. I am also a veteren who proudly served my country as a Marine during the 1991 Gulf War. Please help or provide assistance any way you can. Thank you.
