Rewarding Moments: Ruthie

Ruthie (Swag Name: Ragin13)  is from Portland, Oregon and has been a Swagbucks member since May 2016. Ruthie found out about us from one of our sponsored ads on Facebook. She loves taking surveys, watching videos and helping her team in Team Challenges!

Ruthie found us at a time when she really needed extra income to support herself and her children.

5 months after my dad passed i was diagnosed with an incredibly rare blood cancer. It totally debilitated me and i was no longer able to work or go to school due to the symptoms and amount of pain im in on a daily basis. I was put on social security but 700 is not enough to survive and raise 2 kids especially with the cost of living/rent increases where i live. I struggled and became homeless with my children and that took a toll on my already diminished health. A few yrs later i was able to get into a program that helps with rent partially so my social security can pay for rent and electricity but i still have other bills and things we need for the kids clothes shoes household items school supplies etc. Worst of all i have no way to give my kids a Christmas. Ive been doing swagbucks for a little under a yr now and ive been able to get 4 giftcards so far. I spend about an hr doing swagbucks stuff off and on thru out the day and the sb adds up fast. Thanks to swagbucks i was able to buy school clothes and ill be able to give my kids a Christmas. My precious babies don’t deserve to go without because of the health problems i have. So im very greatful i found out about swagbucks. Its awesome and fun

Here is a picture of Ruthie and her children.
