Help Josh Get Back on His Feet: An Unexpected Journey Through Financial Hardship
Hello, everyone. My name is Josh. If you’re reading this, I’m already thankful for your time. I’m here to share my story and humbly ask for your support.
For years, I was a successful video game influencer, living comfortably and building a life with my girlfriend. But life has a way of throwing unexpected curveballs.
In 2020, a trusted friend and business partner disappeared after securing $7500 from me to invest in a joint venture. It was a devastating blow, both financially and emotionally, and it was just the beginning of a downward spiral. My credit score plummeted, and I lost my job amidst company-wide layoffs due to the pandemic. Without a steady income, my girlfriend and I were forced out of our apartment, and we had to rely on our aging car and crashing on friend’s couches.
In 2022, we decided to settle down again, looking for a place to call home. But as we attempted to rebuild, we fell victim to a rental scam, losing $1000 of our hard-earned money. Each setback has been a blow to our financial stability and our spirits.
Today, we’re doing our best to get by. I’m working multiple part-time jobs, and we’re slowly making progress, but the reality is daunting. Our bank account balance is currently -$349, and we’re living on the edge of a financial precipice. We’re getting by with the basics, but we’re unprepared for any emergency – a car breakdown, a vet visit, or a computer failure could be disastrous.
I’ve always been someone who trusts in the goodness of others, and I refuse to let these experiences tarnish that belief. But today, I’m turning that trust towards you – towards this community. I’m asking for your help to get back on our feet and secure a stable future.
Every donation, no matter how small, will make a significant difference in our lives. It will help us cover our immediate debts, secure stable housing, and create a safety net for future emergencies.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story, and thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity.
