I'm Keri. I live in East Tennessee and have just about hit rock bottom as the old saying goes. I need help paying for rent and basics for this month. It has been a really bad year and many things have gone wrong. I admit that I am embarrassed and a little humiliated to have to do this to ask for help, but when things are this bad, you do what you can.  I am looking for a full time job and will gladly work two jobs. I just started a 20 hour a week part time job that I drive 40 mins to just to earn $8 an hour. I will not recieve my first check until Dec 10. It will not even be enough to pay rent much less pay other bills.  I have helped others in various ways and I hope that there are some of you that still have basic love and caring for your fellow human beings.  

What's going on with me?

My lease is up in Jan and I have to be out of here by Jan 23.  At this time I have no place to go and as you read, no real job. I am willing to move out of state to start a new life. I just need some help to get through the next few months. I can't even get a loan, because my ex-husband did not follow the divorce decree and my name is still on the mortgage even though I gave him the house without asking for anything. A lawyer has mailed him a letter, but will not pursue it unless I can pay her/him. I don't have money to pay for anything.  12/5/14 - Addendum: I just received notification that the process of removing my name from the mortgage has been started! This is a big relief. 

I guess you need to know how I've got into this bad condition. As far as money goes, I don't have health ins which was supposed to have been kept by my ex husband also, but he got fired from that job and could not put me on it at the new job. Therefore, I have had to pay for my doctors visits and medicines out of pocket, which thankfully have not been tremendous, but it adds up.   The job that I accepted when I moved to Seymour, let me go because they said that I did a good job, but I didn't fit in with the co-workers. (It was a pain clinic ran with family members) I found another job and they were having a lot of issues and were going to let two of us go in the next month. I thought there was no need in waiting so I called a temp service who said they could get me started the next week so I quit on that Friday. The temp service never would return my calls or emails after that.  

There are several personal tragedies/events that occured  throughout the year that I don't want to share with the world at the moment. 

I started selling my belongings in October to pay bills and I made it through the end of Nov with only owing some on a credit card.  I'm trying to do the right things.  I don't want to ruin my credit, which is still good, and I want to do right by paying my rent and bills.  

This is not about knowing me or even liking me. It's about helping a fellow human in need.  Do you realize how desperate I am to do this? I may not get one donation, but at least I've tried several things in order to help myself. 

I hope to post this all over so I hope the right people will see it and help.  Please remember I am looking for work and I can relocate at the end of Jan. with some financial assistance. 

What is your money going to help with?

 It will help pay my rent for December and hopefully January and if there is enough to pay utilities.  

Peace, love, happiness to each of you whether you donate or not. Thank you for at least reading this and considering helping.
