Skylar has resided in the United States with her husband for five years now, was reported to have said: “I was facing deportation as my green card renewal was coming up and due to COVID-19, I lost my job. I was stressing about how I was going to afford to renew it. I had until Wednesday of next week to get my paperwork sent off. My last day in the US was scheduled for June 22nd.”
“I would have been deported had Taylor’s generosity not come through, I’m using the money to renew my green card and if there is any remaining afterward I will be using it for a flight home to visit my family who I haven’t seen in over 3 years due to financial struggles.”
Just one day before she received her payment, Skylar opened up about the rush to remain in the United States.

I’ll have to renew my green card within the next 2 weeks and I have no idea how I’m now going to afford an extra $680 when I can barely afford to eat and pay my bills. Every tear, dollar, piece of paperwork, mile drove to appointments, etc. is about to go out the window if they deport me due to the government’s strict timelines with things like this.”
In addition to a link to her PayPal account, Skylar also revealed that a week after losing her job, her husband Matt was also unemployed due to the global pandemic.
