For the past 9 1/2 years, I've been working as a housing counselor for a non-profit agency providing assistance and guidance to homeless families in an effort to help them regain self-sufficiency. I recently learned that the grant I was working for will be transferred to another agency; therefore, my job will come to an end on June 30, 2014.

As a single parent, I've always struggled to make ends meet. I live life on the economic edge every single day. Trying to survive from one paycheck to another has always been difficult, but soon I won't have a paycheck at all. The clock is ticking and I have to implement a plan fast!

In 2009, I started a seasonal snack concession business in an effort to supplement my income. I purchased an ice cream push cart and began selling ice cream and snacks at various events during the summer.   Although I've had to put my business on hiatus for a while, due to financial difficulties, I feel as though now is the time to pursue my dream of becoming a "successful business owner" full time. I am committed to devoting 100% of my time to my business, BAIJ Sweets & Treats, and I’d love to have your support in this huge transition.  (The name BAIJ represents the first letter in each of my children's names).

Your financial support will help fund the purchase of a used concession trailer and would allow me to expand my operation. Please donate whatever you can; "Pennies make dollars" and all pennies are appreciated!

Thank you!
