Honestly, I'm not the one to ask anyone for anything but after I saw my girls burst into tears last night. That told me i had to do something about it asap..
I'm a single mother of 6, I decided to move from New York to Bridgeport CT. 5 years ago looking for a better life for my kids. 4 years ago I was approved for public housing,I was happy comes out to be that we moved to the worst part of Bridgeport. I've been working on my credit hoping one day I give my kids their own home that they deserve. Monday through Friday I get up early take them to school and go to work. Sometimes i don't even get home until after 10pm picking up overtime just to make ends meet and give them what they want and need. Last week my 18 year old saw an ad on Facebook for acting and modeling, she suggested i try it out for Mia 11 years old and Aaliyah 5 years old. since they are always dancing, singing, and act like they are like the kids on the Disney channel, which is something they always dreamed about. Surprisingly I got a call from John Robert Power acting and modeling company for an audition. I hesitated on taking them that Saturday morning because it was an hour ride, I knew they would get hungry and I'd have to dig in to what was left being that my account was low and I needed money to make it through the week for gas and food until my next paycheck. I told myself I would probably regret it in the future if I didn't take my girls. A few hours after the audition I got a call back and they wanted me to bring Mia the next day because they wanted to start with her right away, and that we would also talk about Aaliyah because they were interested in her Aswell. After the amazing news they asked me to bring a fee, which I knew about but I didn't think they would ask for it right away. I told her I didn't have that kind of money, she said is their anyone who can let you borrow it. I told her it's 9pm how can I get that money in such short period of time. She than said well text me before 12 and let me know. After I hung up I told my girls they were elected they were so excited, but when I told them I didnt have that kind of money and they weren't going the next day. Mia burst into tears and ran to her room, my heart broke into pieces. I crushed my kids dream in less than a second. After I made a go fund me account to raise money for my girls, I decided to do a little research on John Robert Powers acting and modeling. Turns out to be they are a scam, I immediately took the page down and wrote to Ellen hoping she sees my message soon. so here I am now asking for help. I would appreciate if everyone make this go viral until it gets to Ellen, anything you can do will make my girls dream come true.. Thank you all in advance not just for taking the time to read this but for also helping me put a smile on my girls face again and believing in them!!!
