Hello, I am raising money for small business affected by COVID 19, who are falling short of receiving other programs. Lets get money to small business in our area!!
My name is Whitney. I am an entrepreneur, business owner, and student. I am on my third year of nursing school. I’ve been running my own cleaning business. In February I decided to only do this and quit my other VERY part time job. It was literally an hour a morning to clean the local health clinic in our small town before they opened. So in March my company was my only job, but Covid-19 caused my whole business to plummet. Nobody will let me into their homes anymore. Even people I have cleaned for, before starting my own business. Understandably so, these people were only trying to keep their families safe. Week’s one through four I just decided I’d use my savings and credit cards as I applied for unemployment. I figured I’d be able to get back on my feet. Today marks 8 weeks!! I have had limited work for 8 weeks, and because of how I left my job I do not qualify for unemployment. They will not even look at my small company. I feel as if I am being punished for striving for more than the average person does, because I am motivated to achieve more, and because "I had a regular job". It sounds crazy right! The Cares act that Trump signed to allow those who work for themselves to qualify for unemployment is not being followed strictly. Instead huge companies are getting multiple millions at once, and draining what limited funds are available.
Going on week 9 and I have been told by unemployment that they just “haven’t gotten to me yet”. A manager I finally got through to told me I probably wont qualify. I have also applied for the Paycheck Protection Plan, I have also been denied for this forgivable loan. I do not employee people full time, just myself. I do hire some of my classmates as needed when I have a lot of work. This business allows me the flexibility to still pursue my degree and get to clinical rotations. I even volunteer and help those who can not pay for my services. More often these are elderly clients who are coming home from a hospital stay. I will get their homes in order so they can return home and only worry about their health. I have even gone as far as to meal prep, med prep, and even monitor blood pressures and glucose readings for them. I would like to think I am doing what I love, and learning, while contributing to my rural community. Having us be able to continue our work and become nurses will benefit anybody who ultimately ends up in our care! I am finally reaching out to a website like this because I have no other option. Businesses like mine are being left in the dust. We are told we do not qualify left and right. I would like to think that as Americans we are better than this. So I have started this page. Although, some of this money will go to my business, I have also reached out to other small companies and sole proprietors to raise funds for them as welll. If any of these small companies, including myself, end up qualifying for PUA. We will be required to return these funds so they can be distributed to people who are not getting anything. As I get their information I will add it to my page. Including pictures.
I also invite any small businesses who see this to reach out to me. I want to spread the love in our area to everyone!! Write me one page about your company, and send pictures if you desire. I will be happy to add you to the campaign!!
I am a good person who is just in a bad situation. Along with so many others out there who are suffering. I'm hoping to reach the hearts of people online, so we can actually get money to small business!!!
