I'm fundraising for moving expenses from Denver, Colorado to North Carolina, as well as the downpayment and first month's rent on a new apartment. I need to leave Denver as the cost of living has outstripped what I make.
In the last year, I have had my life crumble, with one financial kick to the head after another. My goal for a while has been to move to North Carolina to help my sister with her own health, as well as find a more affordable place to live.
I have very solid job opportunities in North Carolina, and have just received news from my current landlord that they will not charge me to break my lease, as they want to renovate my apartment. This is a very sudden piece of good news which puts moving almost within my reach.
I have a friend who is willing to come help me across the country, and his airfare is included in this amount. This also covers at least the first month's rent so that I have a bit of time to unpack before I start working.
Please, please, please donate. I will not be able to handle another huge increase in rent in Colorado. The primary solution here is for me to move somewhere affordable. A nurse's salary SHOULD be enough to find a suitable apartment or home, but in Colorado, it's no longer feasible.
I will keep this page updated on my progress. Any money left over will go towards my sister's hospital bills.
