There’s a published report today (Thursday) from CNNMoney that nearly half of the families in the U.S. cannot afford such essentials as rent, food and transportation. This despite the fact that most of these people have jobs; some have two or three because wages have barely risen over the years.
It’s disheartening news, but it also means that I’m not alone in struggling to cover my needs each month. The deficit is less than it was a few months ago, but I still have a ways to go, despite working more hours than ever.
I also know this is a bad time to ask for donations. Many of you have other needs, and there are graduations and summer vacations to plan, along with paying for a child’s education this fall.
As you may know, each of these appeals normally brings a small number of donations, which is why I send them so often.
If you’ve had your fill, please unsubscribe.
On the other hand, if most of you could send me a donation right away, rather than gradually, I stand a decent chance to recover enough to keep going.
As of today, I’m still strapped for cash. Even when I recover the money stolen via that recent bank hack, it’s already spent.
If you can send a donation to help out, please go to: https://www.paypal.com/Send-Money, login and use the Send to friends and family option. Enter my email address, [email protected], and click or tap Next to continue the transaction.
If you want to send a donation by a different method, let me know and I’ll work out something.
If you’re not able to send a donation, feel free to forward this message to someone who might assist.
If you have any questions about my situation, please don’t hesitate to write.
