China from Chicago, IL

My daughter and I need a fresh start! Bus tickets to FL will move us forward.

We're ready to move - I've secured housing with family and prepared for my job search. We need the bus tickets to get us there!


China sent a "thank you" message! Jul 11, 2014

China says, "Thank you again to all the donors who donated to my need. We have purchased the tickets and my daughter and I are so excited to start this new chapter of our lives! Thank you for making it all possible! God bless you!"


I am a 54-year-old female with a CNA certificate and a Mental Health certificate. I graduated in 1981. I got injured at my job in 2011 and have not being able to work since then.

My goals are to gain employment once I move to Orlando, FL and find permanent housing.

I need assistance to purchase two one-way tickets for me and my daughter to move to Orlando, FL in July. I'm trying to get a fresh start for me and my daughter and moving to Orlando, FL will allow me to gain employment and stability for my family.

Meeting this need will help me because I have already secured housing with family members once I move there but cannot afford to purchase tickets since my income is very limited.

Need funded!

Thank you for helping China fund this need.

I started working with China almost six months ago when her daughter's therapist referred her to me. China and I have been working on her employment goals but have been unsuccessful. China now has the opportunity to get a fresh start for her and her daughter in Orlando, FL and all she needs are two one-way tickets to get there. She cannot afford to buy the tickets since her income is very limited. She has secured housing with family members who will assist her in finding employment. China is very optimistic and hopeful about the future for her and her daughter and cannot wait to get a fresh start in Orlando, FL.
