Electric Bill

Electric Bill

From Carmen Ortiz

I'm trying to raise money to help my mom pay the electric bill so it won't be turned off since we can only afford to pay rent this month.

It's been very hard on my mom recently, since she got insurance for the both of us through her job, it's become harder for her to pay for bills. In order just to pay the rent, she's had to let go of a storage unit we had, (we had been homeless, but were staying with one of my school friends) that still had items in it, but that's not really a big loss when you could potentially lose your home again. 

This month, our electric bill is almost 350 dollars, and she can't afford to pay it. We have to pay our rent late this month ($650) along with the $65 dollar late fee, and she gets paid on the 7th, which is the same day the electric bill is due, however, the money from when she gets paid has to go completely to the rent.

I don't like that my mom worries about this. It makes me worry. I want to help her, but this is the only way I could think of.

If anyone could help, I would be greatly appreciative. I would be more than willing to provide screenshots of proof that I used the money to pay for the electric bill, or for any updates.

Update: got $200 elsewhere, only need 140
