Swapping Adventures Part 4 by Emmanuel Lopez


This is a big THANK YOU to every single person that helped and supported my quest for a new home. Despite the tight budget and deadline, I am happy to say I found a peaceful new apartment with a fantastic view and a caring landlord.

During this adventure, I really came to appreciate the power of community and how willing people are to aid others experiencing financial crisis and isolation. I experienced the magic of Swapsity members when they were quick to provide apartment leads and encouragement after reading my blog post. Some even used Facebook to share the post on their own walls!

I also received personal messages of gratitude because they found my apartment quest inspirational. Those who were also going through difficult times said my story helped them to stay positive, persevere and ask for the help they need. In the end, my apartment search was all about inspiring others who find themselves in the same boat. My message to anyone feeling stuck in a crisis is this: Identify what you need, Find the courage to ask for help, and Believe in the power of community. Remember, you are not alone. There are good-hearted people waiting to help you in your time of need!
