In 8 weeks we will be homeless. We are trying to raise money for a down payment on a house for my elderly, chronically ill mother who will not have to worry about landlords or moving again.
My mum is 55. She has Sciatica and Diabetic Neuropathy. My sister and I are full-time students with medical conditions of our own and if we were to raise enough money, this means we wouldn’t need to move again or worry about landlords anymore.
Our current landlord has broken our lease because he intends to sell the property and wants us to vacate the premises by July 31st.
We have also found out that due to an improperly installed 5/6 year old dishwasher, mold has been growing in the kitchen for a year and a half without us knowing about it. As a result, our chronic illnesses have become much worse, amounting medical bills both for us and our dog Lola.
So we may need to get out of here faster than expected.
The home we can afford on a monthly basis is within 10 minutes of our current home and we would easily be able to move there by ourselves. Because of limited funds, we have nowhere else to go and will be homeless otherwise.
We are selling our possessions on Ebay to try and raise the money ourselves:
We are also asking for donations:
