I was going to lead this post with some "factoid" I picked up on YouTube claiming there are more people alive today than have ever died. Upon further examination (googling), however, that interesting soundbite appears to be factually inconclusive. Link
So, never mind that right now.
writing to you because I hope you can help me with something. I’m trying to
raise enough money to One, get my drivers license back*, and Two, purchase a used
mini-van so I can take co-workers back and forth to work**. This may eventually
help me leave warehouse work, which is getting harder and harder for me to do***. I believe I may be able to do Uber later on, after the tracking device is taken off the vehicle****.
asked family members for help, but that’s going as well as it could be expected. My mother in
Florida sent me a little money but she’s on a fixed income. I’m lucky she was
able to help me at all. I've asked two of my three sisters and they are helping as much as they can. I'm reluctant to ask my brother and littlest sister.
would really appreciate your help. If you can help, please use the PayPal Donate link to the right.
Yours trully, Lem.
* Post 2nd DUI costs in NJ are exorbitant.
** I have about 6 co-workers living near me using mass transit like myself. it take us over an hour for a 20 min ride because we have take two buses.
*** I almost broke my leg when I took a false step into the gap between a truck and the gate. I assumed there was a ramp when there wasn't. I was lucky I was able to recover in time to only get away with a painful scrape to my shin.
**** It might look strange to a fare, to see me blowing a tube connected to a sobriety tracking device.
