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.
