A reader asked me to share the following story. I am happy to do so. God has blessed me, How can I not help someone else who is in need.
Shari Turrell is a single mom of two kids, her husband passed away in 2007. She started her own company doing events, nothing crazy just things that would help build memories for people. She grew up in Vegas so she knew another of vendors and could get things at a discounted price. She is also a big believer in creating memories because we never take material things with us when we pass. So when the pandemic happened she had just moved out of her house because it had a black mold problem. She had plans to rent another home, events lined up for the summer and the rest of the year etc. Well then the pandemic happened. Instead of finding a home she was using the money in savings and what she had gotten back to try and survive. Her son had just moved to Washington to pursue culinary school up there. So it was just her and her 16 year old daughter. She had filed for unemployment and had provided the state of Nevada with all her proof and then some. By this point she was living in her car with her daughter. After her daughter had suffered a heat stroke she had to send her to stay with her brother because she just couldn’t care for her the way she wanted to. This alone broke her heart to have to do this. She continued waiting and waiting on unemployment. Finally, in July she was approved and set for deposit. Her case manager finished it all on a Friday, that Monday a new case worker came in. Canceled her payment, flagged her as fraud and denied her from the program. This gentleman then had an internal investigation opened up against him and any other cases he may have mismanaged. Its been a huge ordeal. Shari had been attacked multiple times in her car while parked in parks at night. She mentally has been put through the wringer. Detr had her file an appeal and then it took two months to respond only to tell her she will get a hearing sometime next year. This woman has lost everything because of Nevada’s corrupt unemployment system and lost all faith in everything. She finally went to Washington for a job interview and I do believe she got it. So now while she tries to rebuild her life all over again. I just want to show them that people care and they do have a heart and that this year the holidays are not going to be lonely there not going to be scary. Let’s show them that their is a light at the end of the tunnel. http://www.gofundme.com/bringthisfamilybacktogether
