The kindness of ASF glows in my difficult times
I'm in the midst of legal procedures against my landlord and his family who lives in the duplex I live in since June 2021.
I have a full time job while I'm also working on getting my art biz on the rails. I got with ASF in September and it took me a while getting things all set but when I was ready, I started the marketing part with the first step that ended at the end of February.
That's when the neighbours started their vengeance against my spouse and I for having called the police and warning child protection because of the violence we hear in their unit. At first, the landlord pretended to be nice with us and made us believe we could leave without problems because he always said he couldn't promise to solve the issues with his family which were getting worst. When we decided to leave for the end of March, we discovered the landlord's real nature and he made very bad references for other landlords so no one accepted our request for another apartment. We were held hostage to stay here and suffer their harassment and slander. The landlord has been since harassing us with his family.
Because of this, I put aside my art biz since March and every attempt I make to get back to it I'm interrupted by problems to attend because of them.
We have lost a full year for our projects, we have lost a lot of money, we have lost our well-being and we keep losing. But now the legal procedures against them have started and there is hope to find justice.
But I'm so short on money that I wasn't able to renew my membership with ASF, among other things to pay. So I resigned myself to cancel the renewal explaining why. I was not expecting such a kind and considerate response.
They are giving me free months to give me a chance to get through this difficult time and get back on track with my art biz and even offer extra support to jumpstart my work.
I never expected so much kindness and consideration and have been moved to tears by it. In difficult times, we can discover the true nature of those around us and I've also discovered the true nature of companies I do business with.
I already know that ASF is amazing but now, this is next level amazing! I am deeply grateful and it makes me trust ASF even more, and motivates me even more to keep pushing through my life trials and get back to my art and make things happen with ASF.
If ASF is so amazing, it's because of all those amazing people working at ASF. Mary Anthonette has been beyond amazing!
You won a customer for life, this is official! Thank you!
Your kindness has been a blessing and a much needed balm to my soul in the heart of this difficult year.
