I never thought I'd be this bad off, but due to a series of bad luck, I am bankrupt. I thought I would be able to recover from this before I hit rock bottom, but here I am.

Currently I have no vehicle to go find a job, and need work to survive. I have lost all my stuff that I had in a storage unit, which had I been able to pay the rent, I could have sold my belongings to finance some wheels, but I couldn't find the funds to prevent that from happening. I did have a vehicle, but the transmission went out, and was too much to fix, plus the economy tanked around the same time.

Why don't I reach out to my family?

I can't do that. To ask for assistance if in a financial bind is to them more like begging, and is shunned, even though I know damn well they could help, they would rather turn down my cry for help and let me suffer and fail.

I've done nothing to deserve this, and I have brought NO shame to my family. I feel I am a good person, and I try and help anyone who may require it.

Do unto other's, right?

I am the youngest of 4 kids, but I'm not sure why I can't get help from them. Family is supposed to take care of each other, right?

Nope, mine doesn't work that way. I really don't think they know what unconditional love is, and the sad part is we were raised as Catholics. I am not sure what I've done to them for them not to seem to care much about me.

So you see I can't turn to family.



The only family that I have now is the only one that will always matter to me, and that is my beautiful daughters and Grand daughter, and I am so proud of them, I love them so much, and even though they have been thru some messed up events in their lives that they had no control of, they are going down the right path in life, so I guess I am doing something right.

But I can't take all the credit, My oldest kids mom, and my first wife Vicki has alot to do with that too, with both of my kids, even though my youngest isn't hers, she still treats her as her own, and for that Vicki, Thank you. ;)

Anyhow, I've been trying to brainstorm a way to fix my current situation, and here's what I've come up with.

Like the title of this note says "Charity", I was thinking instead of burdening anyone with my problems, I do this.

I have almost 500 friends on facebook, and I can honestly say I have had the pleasure of knowing a good majority of, and a high percentage of those I consided to be close friends more than aquaintances.

So my idea, if I could get friends to donate anything to the "Please help JW out of this F'd up situation", with your help, I would be able to raise enough funds to purchase a vehicle, which would greatly expand my job searching area, and help me get back up on my feet and get back on track with my life, and be able to hold my head up, smile and not be so stressed out about this place I'm in called poverty.

Does this sound like a workable solution?

I am so embarrassed about my current situation, but at the end of my rope, and I am desperate.If you can find it in your hearts to help, I would be so grateful.

I have a paypal account or you could send donations to:
2175 South Hwy 121, st 2132
Lewisville, Texas 75067

Thank you for your time to listen, and God bless you all.

Sincerely,
Johnnie
