Hi, my name is Chris. I’ve never travelled anywhere. I desperately want to go to Hawaii for a week as I really need the break. I got myself into some credit card debt, along with debt consolidation loan and have been working 6 and 7 days per week to try to catch up but it hasn’t been working out so far. And, yes, I’ve cut up all my credit cards. I’ve learned my lesson the hard way. I only wish I’d taken it to heart when being taught about credit in high school. I’m a taxi driver and our market has been flooded by Uber so my income has dropped 35-40% over the last year. I am treading water and burning out in a hurry. A vacation would be a much needed break and I feel is well deserved.
I grew up in small-town Oregon and am used to nice people constantly surrounding me. Now I live in a big city and these people are few and far between. I still go out of my way to hold doors open for people and say hi. Hopefully it spreads. It doesn’t take that much effort to be kind. I know there are many of us out there in the world but I have to say they’re much easier to find in small towns. Other than spending way too much time partying my freshman year in college, I feel like I’ve always done the right thing, including helping my brother several times when he was in financial crisis. Unfortunately, he’ll never be in a position to help me so that’s why I’m here, hoping someone out in cyberspace will help me take this trip. I think $2,000 would probably give me enough to have a great time and recharge my batteries.
If someone out there is better off than me and can help me, I’d be greatly appreciative. I’d also love to send you follow up story along with pictures from my trip. If/when my financial situation changes, I’d even love to return the favor or simply pay you back. Thank you very much for reading this and thank you in advance if you help me.
I love the idea of a website like this to connect those that have money with those who need it. I hope to be on the donating side of this in the future.
P.S. I’m the guy on the left in the picture
