Freelance Makeup Artist and Background Actor

I have been working as a freelance makeup artist for events and private clients professionally from 2019 until early 2020 and independent contractor for background acting from August 2018 until early 2020. COVID-19 has greatly impacted my ability to work. Since makeup artistry requires close contact with clients and production shutdowns were in effect since March 2020, I have not been able to work for months. I received the minimum of Pandemic Unemployment Assistance which means I am only getting only $159 after takes per week. Due to the $600 additional assistance ending last month it has made things even more difficult. The house I live in is in foreclosure and I haven’t been able to even get a job at a retail beauty store/counter due to company layoffs/furloughs. I had to write my makeup business off as a loss for last year due to spending more on business expenses than making a profit, so the hardships that came with that just further increased this year when the pandemic caused nationwide shutdowns and social distance guidelines. Since I care about my clients’ health/safety for makeup services, and since my mother and I share a bed (we live together in a very small house with my sister and another relative), she has certain health conditions that can cause her to suffer more if she were to catch COVID, I have not worked in makeup at all since March. I have exhausted my savings and am fearful of not knowing how long we have until we have to find a new place to live. I have bills/expenses (2 phone lines-personal business and secondary business, rent needed for a new place, we had to get a mini oven because our regular oven broke down, gas/light/water bills,) piling up as each month goes by.

Warehouse

I lost my job unfairly! I was fired just for asking for protection for my health and that of my colleagues! I have been without work for months, I am undocumented and I do not have any help! I have 2 chronic diseases and I take daily medication !! I was hospitalized for asthmatic bronchitis! I have no food or resources to continue! I feel desperate! And what little help from the food there is, sometimes I can’t eat. my need to get ahead is to get help !! unfortunately all the help is elsewhere !! Please don’t forget about the people of New York! there are many in need like me. I hope and you can help me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart 🙏.

A domestic house cleaner

I was cleaning people’s h iui uses and making pretty decent money. Until the Covid-19 crisis. I went from enough to nothing. No income and I was denied unemployment. So I’m really in need of money for everyday needs and food. If that was not bad enough now my car need a new transmission. I can’t catch a break .

Share the love, share #S4SNYC
Please spread the word far and wide to friends, coworkers, or anyone that’s eaten at a restaurant at some point in their lives, who may be interested in showing some solidarity now!
