Hello, my name is Rosa. Firstly, allow me to say thank you for clicking this GoFundMe! It means a lot to me and my girlfriend that you're taking the time to read this.
Secondly, this GoFundMe is to raise money so that I'll be able to bring my girlfriend home to me. I know what you're thinking. "OMFG Y R U TAKIN UP SPAICE 4 SUMTING SO EZ!!!11!!11?1?11???!?!"
Okay, you're probably not thinking that, but you know what I mean. As of right now, my girlfriend Jazlyn is in a toxic and emotionally/verbally abusive environment. I'm trying to do everything I can to save money to try and help her, but as we all know, minimum wage isn't cutting it.
So we move onto bigger things.
We have been thinking about this for a while. Here's the plan behind the amount you see above.
Currently my entire paycheck goes to supporting my household via food and bills. I only get $130 a week, and that isn't enough for anything outside of food and bills.
I currently do not have a vehicle of my own. My parents have to drive me to work everyday. This is already straining enough as it is, since we have to work around each other's work schedules as well as juggle gas money.
SO This is how I planned the money out:
To get a decent used car in the area, that will take roughtly 1,000 to 5,000 dollars, plus a little extra to get it plated and insured. We also have to include parts i might ahve to replace. So that's roughly 6,000 in total.
Now there's the gas money to get me to and from her home to bring her here. That would be roughly 100 dollars to get to and from place to place, due to varying gas prices.
Due to her family cutting her off the internet, our only way of contact, I have also taken it upon myself to get a phone for her. That would cost around 500 dollars to get a phone and a plan, then to be able to mail it to her. If I lose contact with her, then it's game over. I will explain this later on.
That leaves 80 dollars for her to get a State ID and her Birth Cirtificate, and then 70 dollars for food and drinks.
I've put a lot of thought into this and I've decided that I need to take action now.
A Message From Jazlyn
I've asked my girlfriend to prepare a message to you all before she gets cut off. This is what she has to say:
"Hello, this is Jazlyn, the girl who is in need of rescue. I'm writing this in order to tell you exactly what is doing on in my life at the moment. Currently I am 19 years old, unfinished with high school due to many issues surrounding my transcripts being moved from school to school, and is even currently having trouble getting into an alternative school to even think about finishing.
My family is another side of my rather stressful spectrum, one that's full of their Christian way of which I (respectfully) do not agree with, but they insist on forcing it onto me anyway despite my many explinations why it is ok for me not to follow or believe in the same things they do.
Which is what also adds to the fact that I haven't said not a single word about my sexuality, in some cases the thought frightens me because of the fact that they have made it obvious that they don't care for anyone who doesn't follow the rules of the bible. Or as they like to mask it with the usual "Love the person, hate the sin" speech.
My mother, while she was quite loving and caring at some point, has changed quite a lot within the past few years, the smallest slipups from yours truly is rewarded with verbal abuse, which I in turn began to argue back with, causing what could be considered a battlefield in the house, espcially when I decided to tell her that I do not identify as a Christian.
I have also been diagnosed with depression, though my family sees it as some sort of demon that can easily just be taken care of by praying it away, I was lucky enough to go to a counselor at some point, I unfortunatly could not continue to see her due to issues with my medical insurance, which has been an ongoing battle for years now, that seems to have gotten nowhere, even with the help of my estranged father, who has decided to come into my life again and even offered to put me on his insurance, though we haven't heard from him about it for months at this point.
All of this has been slowly building more and more stress, to the point of me thinking, and even once, extremely close to attempting suicide because I simply am not mentally strong enough to deal with all of this.
Now this may not be as extreme as many other people's cases, and I don't expect many to feel to simpathetic about it but, thank you for reading this story and if you can, please donate.
Thank you very much
Again, thank you for reading through all of this, or at the very list skimming it. I urge you all to please donate, or at the very least spread the word on social media. There is no time to waste.
Please, PLEASE donate! Every little bit helps!
I cannot thank you all enough.
