“The other night I felt overwhelmed with loneliness, hopelessness, and I wasn’t sure how I was ever going to make it out of this mess into brighter days for my boys with such limited help and resources so I made a post on NextDoor and neighbors flooded my inbox and feed with unbelievable amounts of love, support, and encouragement…just their words have filled my empty with hope!”
In light of the message Jen left on NextDoor, many of her neighbors have requested that she create a GoFundMe.
She admits that she’s quite embarrassed to do this, but her neighbors are insisting so they can rally around her.
Jen’s neighbors have also stepped in to help make sure her sons have clothing and toys, and some are even trying to help Jen find a good job.
“Thank you to all of my neighbors for coming forward with a listening ear, a helping hand, and encouragement,” Jen wrote. “I’m blown away by everyone’s support and I can’t wait to pay this forward one day.”
