Amanda and Joseph
$550 allowed me to get my little man’s bike back on the park. I asked the first bike shop if I could pay off the $36 over 2 payments. The shame when they just stared at me.
Three weeks ago my partner became violent. This money has/is allowing me to leave and set up a safe new home for me and my three children. I have been able to breath a little easier, as I had to save for a new bond, advanced rent, moving costs and two full new school uniforms.
Its the first time in 3 years that I don't have to choose between medication, medical appointments food or transport.
