    We are a hard working middle class family. We believe in education and have always pushed our children to make good grades so they could get in college. We thought that would be enough. We are finding out that because we chose to work, our son does not qualify for any financial aid and we do not make enough to pay for it. He is attending Northern Kentucky. It’s Thanksgiving and I plan on telling our son after dinner,he has to come home because we can not afford to keep him there. He’s very intelligent. He was an honor student in High School. If anyone is will to “help,” it would be greatly appreciated. We are not asking for a handout and would be willing to try to pay some back or pay it forward when we can. Thanks. Desperate Mom.

Due to a layoff I’m on the vurdge of getting my water and power shut off at the end of the month iv fallen behind my car payment and insurance payment and I’m on the vurge of getting it taken away and I need it for doctors appoint ments and to get my kids around. Anything honestly would help me. Even if it was only $1,000 it’s could square everything away at least (and I know that it self is alot to ask for) that would help tremendously! I currently fenished school and am waiting to do my licensing exam I just hit a big pot hole n life. I’m an only child and don’t have family willing or able to help iv been doing it by myself my whole life but I’m literally am in a jam. But I do want to say thank you for the opportunity to at least give this a shot.

    Greetings my name is Michelle and I am a single mother of five children. My life is one of no luck, If you can imagine it I have been through it. I have been homeless six times and worked numerous jobs to make it all happen for my family. I now am suffering from pain due to lack of dental work that needs to be done immediately. I work in the culinary field and my body is deteriorating and I am unable to do a lot now. I am not old but I have been faced with so much adversity that I feel old. I just need help to put my children through college, get a car and hopefully after fixing my appearance make enough money to maintain my wishes. Christmas is here and due to the amount of stress put on me I just get overwhelmed. My youngest son suffers from epilepsy, my oldest son has a learning disability and needs tutoring on a constant basis. I have to work over 50 hours a week just to maintain bills and am hardly ever able to enjoy my children. I could go on and on with my sad story. But if just one person gives me that chance I promise you I will not let you down. I never won anything or really was able to achieve the most I needed. But I am a shark and I will never stop fighting. I just need a hand up not a hand out. Please, thank you for your time and consideration. Respectfully

5 Snapchat Hacks You Should Be Using

Published

5 SnapChat Hacks

I am hot on this platform right now, you guys. And you should be too. It’s a huge deal, and has lots of amazing opportunities for big and small businesses, marketers, individuals, personal brands…you name it. Let me help you guys get started with a few snapchat tips.

One thing before we start with these snapchat secrets: you gotta make sure you have the “filters” and all that other fun stuff switched to “ON” in your settings. Without those, what are you even doing on Snapchat?

 

1. Make emojis huge

emojis snapchat

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ever gotten a snap with a giant emoji in it? It’s too easy (and looks awesome).

After you’ve taken your snap, type in an emoji like you normally would, but then tap that big T button in the top corner. And there it is. Even better, now you can drag it anywhere on the screen.

 

2. Find hidden colors

Snapchat doesn’t show all the colors they have available. Crazy, right?

To find the hidden colors, just drag your finger to the left and bottom of the screen when you have that rainbow palette open.

 

3. Use location filters

Ever notice how when you swipe left and right after taking a pic, all these different filters appear?

Swipe once to the right and you’ll see a location appear. Sometimes there will be even two or three to choose from.

But even better: if you snap a selfie and use the filter, then download it before you send it out, you’ll have a pretty kick ass grid of all the places you’ve been in a few weeks. Free content. Boom.

 

4. Replay snaps

You guys, I’m totally serious. You can replay a snap. BUT you can only do this once a day from a snapchat username. Also, you can only replay the last one you viewed, so you can’t just go back and choose one from hours earlier.

First, enable replay in your settings. Then, to replay, tap the snap and a bubble will pop up asking if you want to replay. And of course, you say: yes!

Warning: the person will get a notification saying you replayed it. Choose wisely. 😉

 

5. Draw like a pro

You know those crazy cool influencers you see doing amazing drawings? They’re making them on an iPad. Seriously. iPhone screens are way too small for all that detail.

Even though there is no Snapchat app for the iPad, you can still download it and use it on the iPad. Get creative and detailed! And…use a stylus if you’re really ready to get serious.

    We are a hard working middle class family. We believe in education and have always pushed our children to make good grades so they could get in college. We thought that would be enough. We are finding out that because we chose to work, our son does not qualify for any financial aid and we do not make enough to pay for it. He is attending Northern Kentucky. It’s Thanksgiving and I plan on telling our son after dinner,he has to come home because we can not afford to keep him there. He’s very intelligent. He was an honor student in High School. If anyone is will to “help,” it would be greatly appreciated. We are not asking for a handout and would be willing to try to pay some back or pay it forward when we can. Thanks. Desperate Mom.

I currently fenished school and am waiting to do my licensing exam I just hit a big pot hole n life. I’m an only child and don’t have family willing or able to help iv been doing it by myself my whole life but I’m literally am in a jam. But I do want to say thank you for the opportunity to at least give this a shot.

    Greetings my name is Michelle and I am a single mother of five children. My life is one of no luck, If you can imagine it I have been through it. I have been homeless six times and worked numerous jobs to make it all happen for my family. I now am suffering from pain due to lack of dental work that needs to be done immediately. I work in the culinary field and my body is deteriorating and I am unable to do a lot now. I am not old but I have been faced with so much adversity that I feel old. I just need help to put my children through college, get a car and hopefully after fixing my appearance make enough money to maintain my wishes. Christmas is here and due to the amount of stress put on me I just get overwhelmed. My youngest son suffers from epilepsy, my oldest son has a learning disability and needs tutoring on a constant basis. I have to work over 50 hours a week just to maintain bills and am hardly ever able to enjoy my children. I could go on and on with my sad story. But if just one person gives me that chance I promise you I will not let you down. I never won anything or really was able to achieve the most I needed. But I am a shark and I will never stop fighting. I just need a hand up not a hand out. Please, thank you for your time and consideration. Respectfully

    I do not know if anything would ever happen, it seems like I never have any luck. I am in need of about 60K to finally get out of debt. I have four children and they deserve better. I do complete their basic needs and i do save and save for years to take them on a trip once in a while but nothing extravagant. They need to see me not struggling for a change. I do not expect anyone to help but if it would be possible, i woould love to have a little help. Thank you and I am sure that many more people deserve help more than I do. Thanks

5 Snapchat Hacks You Should Be Using

5 SnapChat Hacks

I am hot on this platform right now, you guys. And you should be too. It’s a huge deal, and has lots of amazing opportunities for big and small businesses, marketers, individuals, personal brands…you name it. Let me help you guys get started with a few snapchat tips.

One thing before we start with these snapchat secrets: you gotta make sure you have the “filters” and all that other fun stuff switched to “ON” in your settings. Without those, what are you even doing on Snapchat?

 

1. Make emojis huge

Ever gotten a snap with a giant emoji in it? It’s too easy (and looks awesome).

After you’ve taken your snap, type in an emoji like you normally would, but then tap that big T button in the top corner. And there it is. Even better, now you can drag it anywhere on the screen.

 

2. Find hidden colors

Snapchat doesn’t show all the colors they have available. Crazy, right?

To find the hidden colors, just drag your finger to the left and bottom of the screen when you have that rainbow palette open.

 

3. Use location filters

Ever notice how when you swipe left and right after taking a pic, all these different filters appear?

Swipe once to the right and you’ll see a location appear. Sometimes there will be even two or three to choose from.

But even better: if you snap a selfie and use the filter, then download it before you send it out, you’ll have a pretty kick ass grid of all the places you’ve been in a few weeks. Free content. Boom.

 

4. Replay snaps

You guys, I’m totally serious. You can replay a snap. BUT you can only do this once a day from a snapchat username. Also, you can only replay the last one you viewed, so you can’t just go back and choose one from hours earlier.

First, enable replay in your settings. Then, to replay, tap the snap and a bubble will pop up asking if you want to replay. And of course, you say: yes!

Warning: the person will get a notification saying you replayed it. Choose wisely. 😉

 

5. Draw like a pro

You know those crazy cool influencers you see doing amazing drawings? They’re making them on an iPad. Seriously. iPhone screens are way too small for all that detail.

Even though there is no Snapchat app for the iPad, you can still download it and use it on the iPad. Get creative and detailed! And…use a stylus if you’re really ready to get serious.
