Struggling Single Mother Sells Handwritten Letter From President Obama To Stay In Her Home

Single mother of three, Destiny Mathis, was at the forefront of then Democratic Presidential Nominee Barack Obama’s campaign of “change” in 2008. She printed t-shirts, passed out campaign items and urged people in her area to register to vote. After Obama was elected, Mathis, a surgical technologist, had hope that things would begin to look up until she got pregnant with her youngest child, who was born premature and needed around-the-clock care for her health complications and shortly after, she lost her job. With her hopes of change dwindling and in search of answers, Mathis wrote President Obama a letter explaining her worries yet continuously offered up her support and asked for just a short response from the President of the United States to give her and her family a glimmer if hope. Within weeks, Obama responded with a short, handwritten letter which Mathis had no intention to sell … until her financial struggles continued to mount. Now, as a means of making ends meet, the single mother plans to sell the neatly scripted note from the president to avoid being evicted.
