Blind kitteh @Chrisgroove1′s (human) mom Roxann has desperately been trying to get employment in San Antonio, Texas, and she’s finally landed a few hours a week, in a retail job. Unfortunately it’s literally only a few hours work and barely pays the bus fares and definitely not enough to live on!
Shockingly, Roxann’s employment benefits have finished and she’s not eligible for further benefits because when they finished, she was working less than 40 hours per week (meaning: her new retail job of literally only a few hours a week.).
She did everything in her power to get a full time job; she applied to countless jobs and couldn’t even get called for interviews because where she lives, unemployment is so high that just getting an interview is next to impossible.
Can you offer Roxann employment? She is very good at retail, well presented and a slim, attractive woman with a beautiful smile. If you have, or know of available employment, please let me know and I will pass the information to her. This is a genuine plea!
A small group of us have set up a Chip-In for @Chrisgroove1 and his mom, Roxann. Please do not feel pressured, but if you are able to donate anything toward Chris and his mom, it would be sincerely appreciated. No donation is too small!
Roxann did NOT ask for the Chip-In to be set-up or for this article to be written; in fact she has a history of shying away from help and pretending everything is just fine, when infact things couldn’t be worse. If you have an issue with this, please speak with me, @PepiSmartDog, by leaving me a comment below and I will do my best to respond to each comment.
Note: Roxann is under tremendous strain at the moment and I ask pals NOT to negatively pressure her, as everything is already very fragile. She needs hope for her future, so if you have questions, ask me.
Roxann’s story is heroic and sad. She nursed her dying mother and in doing so lost her own long standing job when the company she worked for closed down days after her mother’s death, due to the economic downturn. She was left with medical bills, a broken down house, a blind cat and no job. She does not own a car; she can’t afford one. There is no boyfriend or husband or father and she is an only child, so there are no family members to turn to.
A small group of amazing pals on Twitter (known as the ‘Cheerleaders’), have been helping Roxann out a little, buying Chris his kitteh food and kitty litter, as well as helping Roxann with food parcels now and then.
I am well aware of the ruckus about asking pals to help when one pal falls into a financial or emotional ditch, but quite frankly sometimes we just have to ask for help! This is one of those times.
‘IF’ Roxann made good quality pet beds, would you be interested in buying one or more of her beds?
She’s a talented sewer but unsure if anyone would buy her pet beds, if she actually made them. Please leave a response in the comments if you would be interested in Roxann’s pet beds. We are exploring all avenues of income for Roxann, as her circumstances become critical. Click here for Chip-In.
