Hard Times For Our Economy...

  This Post is more of a 'thought' then anything... I was watching the news while sitting at my mothers the other day and mostly every news channel was talking about the economy and that over a million Americans have lost jobs this year (Wow).  There was this story about a man that packed up all his belongings and moved over 2,000 Miles away to start a new job with new hopes. And then come to find out, the day after his 1st day on the job, he received the 'pink Slip', which means he got laid off. I feel for him. They say he is taking it better then what everyone had expected. Now he is living in the basement of a friends house.

   I wonder, how much worse can things get, before they ever get better....

Don't Know What To Do....

I talked to my landlords today, even though they are good people, I think even they are getting a little impatient with me not being able to pay rent. I have payed every month on the dot, till  now. Things seem to be piling up and work is to hard to get. Not just a good job any job! I am now to be $1,070.00 behind! Don't know what I am going to do.....

Digital Chairty

I was wanting to Post about DigitalChairty.com. Mainly for 2 reasons:

1.) I just wanted to let people who may be new on here know that DigitalCharity.com is a place where you can go to state your case and if you have a Paypal account, then donations can be made directly to it. Your post is viewable by the visitors on Digital Charity and if they choose to they can make a donation to help you.

2.) Not to discourage anyone, but I was wondering if anyone has had a good outcome with Digital Charity? I think that the program is a wonderful idea.  So if there is anyone that wouldn't mind sharing their experience with it, please feel free to post it.  I just think it may give others some ray of hope that have not had much luck with it yet.

Is there any other Donation Sites out there?

About alkj1980

Hello to all... I joined Aidpages awhile back, I have had some hard times and some ups & downs, as I am sure everyone knows that it does happen in life. I am a single woman with no children. I have recently just lost my job due to being laid off, the comapny I worked for went through a big change and of course the lower on the todem pole you are, well you are the one that gets the pink slip. I wasn't making the best money, but atleast it was something. It is now the end of September, I have fell behind on my rent, which is $475.00 a month and since I lost my job at the end of July, I am close to loosing my apartment. I am truly scared! I don't have a lot of utility bills because they are included in the rent(thank goodness for that atleast). I have tried to go to my local treasury & other assistance type programs, but I do not qualify for help due to the fact I do not have any dependent's(children or anyone else who lives with me). Our town is quite small so there are not many places I can go for help. And other surrounding counties will not help you unless you live in there county. So I am truly running out of options. I don't have any family that can help, and what family I do have they are strapped financially themselves. I have been looking for work, but so far no luck:(. If anyone has any suggestions or information on assistance type help, I am all ears. I need help with groceries, and trying to pay rent. I can do without a phone, tv, and any other luxuries. I just need to get by on the basics.
