In His Image Outreach or Belton started in my home in 1999. I wanted to help children ages 3-5 who had development delays by preparing them for school. After I started the program, I decided to home school my own children . Parents from the school where I was teaching at asked if I could started a school so I researched and began TCES in 2004. A parent from a local church heard out us and asked if his child could attend because he had been expelled from school for having marijuana on campus. We decided to help the child, and it was a success story that allowed us to get into a local church in Anderson SC. Our cap has been 10 students due to the cost of services. We were at the church until 2017 when they experienced a change in Pastors. The new Pastor decided that In His Image should become their church and dissolve. After consideration, we decided that we would take an offer of a friend who had a skating rink and start to provide services there. We went to the city, got approved. The city came back in April and said that we could no longer operate unless we brought the building up to code. They were not specific except for telling us that we needed an architect design. We found a generous architect who did help us, but the city rejected his suggestions for the building and said that we still need a fire sprinkling system. We already knew that we needed roof repair, new bathrooms, firewalls, and flooring. The lowest contractor is saying the total cost will be $300,000. We have 100 student who will be affected if we can’t raise the money for our church/school. Our organization is 501 c 3 and we are asking for your help. Help us save our building. The picture is of how our building looks after clean up at a launch of one of our alumni business launchings. Thank you in advance.
For years I’ve been trying to see-through a vision that encompasses my whole Life. Health issues, unfortunate events and downright back luck have plagued this difficulty. I am a bit of an underachiever in the music realm and have been sitting on a bit of a masterpiece for a few years. The situation financially has been tough for me like a lot of musicians trying to make music in this era but recently some things have really complicated what’s been going on.
It seemed a string of bad luck and misfortune came to an end last year when I was approached by a “super fan” of a band I have small connections with who offered to support us for my new record after hearing a demo.
To make the story short, he really screwed me. He sent me to the studio I wanted to be in, he invested in the instruments I needed, he took my band to lavish dinners and spent money on whatever. I took a couple months off work so I could devote my Life full-time to the record. I spent what little I had from my meager inheritance for necessities (rent, food) and put my entire Life and energy into making this happen. But then I realized I had wasted all our time everything came crashing down.
When we were nearly finished with the record the “investor” decided to take the recordings he paid for (almost the entire record) and force me to give him the rights to the material. The man was so difficult to deal with and unstable I decided to sever the relationship completely for the sake of my mental health. All instruments and everything he paid for are gone- he took it all back. I also have since been contacted by other bands telling me he did something similar to them and I was lucky to have gotten out when I did and apparently the guy is a lunatic. I wish someone had warned me beforehand.
I had a bit of a mental breakdown after this occurred. Someone taking your very personal artwork hostage is a terrible feeling. I have had severe depression and anxiety my whole entire Life and this definitely did not help and a lapsed into a deep, dark episode. I felt like my vision and my Life-long dream was right there at my fingertips and suddenly so rudely stolen away. However, I am lucky to have supportive friends who have kept me going and the music is good enough I know it is a reason for me to continue fighting on. I’m back on my feet and just want to make this happen. I just need a little assistance.
I am asking for money that will help me make the record. I can do it better now than we were doing it and I can record it for much cheaper than what he was paying at the fancy studio. I want to pay for it in my own name and choose what happens to the recordings. I’m asking for a simple $3,000. It’s just something I don’t have right now and really would make things a lot easier as I can hardly make ends meet. The money will go mostly to recording, gear for recording and musicians. I also would like to spend some of it on my antidepressants and another medication I need for a nerve disorder that weakens my hands and makes it difficult for me to play. I have struggled to work and save money for them since this all went down.
I have always had a really hard time asking people for help. I’m doing this now because I feel like there really isn’t much else I can do. I’m worried sometimes that I just can’t go on without at least seeing what I can do. I’ve waited for a break, and when it finally came I was railroaded. Time is of the essence in situations like this and I need to get back in and lay this stuff down ASAP. I really hope someone out there who can help me will read this and consider contributing. Thanks for reading.
Hello My name is Dorothy Strickland. I reside in Greenville SC with my father who is currently disabled. Previously I worked as a Cna for 20 years and became disabled, but when my health improved I resumed my quest and dreams of becoming a successful business owner.
While sourcing online websites for business loans I became a victim of advance fee loan scams, which caused me to go in debt and have to put my business on hold temporarily.
Although I still have my brand and website address. I would really appreciate some financial assistance are help with inventory.
My plans are to start my business back up and assist individuals with employment also.
Sincerely, Dorothy Strickland
Hi I’m Kiarah! I come from a family that has struggled financially almost all of our lives, and I want to break that cycle. I want to start a small business that will help out my family & I financially & hopefully, eventually grow in the near future, so that finances can stop being a huge worry for us and we can continue to stay focused on things that matter instead of how we are going to eat the next day.
I want to create a hair & makeup boutique that helps women feel & look their best at a low cost. I started to build my website and gathering inventory with the money that I was making at my part-time job. However, I had to leave that job due to the fact that my mother had to re-locate to another city, and I wanted to be close to her. My funds have been going towards the move and has left me virtually broke. I could really use a little extra help. I realize I may be asking for a lot. I just hope you understand how life changing this could be for me and my family. I’m completely dedicated to breaking my family’s cycle. My ultimate goal is to raise $2000. The $2000 will go towards legal fees such as: federal business name protection and federal website domain protection. It will also help me get started with a little inventory for the shop. I’m not expecting to accumulate $2000 overnight, and I am grateful for any donation given my way. I’m even grateful for you taking time out of the day to read my message! Here is my paypal link where donations can be sent: paypal.me/kiarahrodriguez
I am attempting to raise the remaining $10,000 of the $70,000 needed to start a food service business. I have 15+ years experience operating full service restaurants and food service trucks. The purpose of this business venture is to utilize my expertise in the food service segment and generate profits that will be donated to two entities that serve and minister to the homeless and impoverished children of Houston. The reason behind starting this business is to continue my father’s legacy and mission of serving those in need on every level. My father served the homeless and impoverished children of Houston for the past 20+ years even while he was battling cancer. My father recently passed away after a long 8 year battle with kidney cancer and he served these folks until he could no longer physically do it.
The two entities that I plan to finiancially support with the profits of the business is a hope center, which was dedicated to my father’s memory, and an inner city church, where he served every Sunday morning feeding and ministering to the inner city homeless. The hope center and church provide hot meals, a place to shower, wash clothes, counseling, job skill training, outreach, housing assistance and many more services that are beneficial to well being and revcovery of our most vulnerable adults and children.
Please help me continue my father’s legacy and pay forward to those who are in need the most. My hope and mission is to help those who have lost hope or help those that life has thrown them a curve ball and they need help getting back on track.
Any size donation is welcomed and deeply appreciated.
Warmest and Best Regards,
I’m a 48 year old guy that’s got 20+ years of IT (Information Technology) experience with working for several major companies. Since the financial crisis of 2008, I’ve had nothing but short contract positions that never lead to full time employment. For the past few years I’ve been forced to be either be self-employed and or under-employed. As time passes it gets harder and harder to make ends meet. I’d had to live off life savings and credit cards, which I know the later has been a huge mistake.
Lately, I believe I’ve found a solution to my debt situation and it involves investing in crypto currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. These have all been going up recently and projected to surpass their all time highs that they reached at the end of 2017. For example Bitcoin touched $20,000 on 12/17/2018. Ethereum has been as high as $1389, and Litecoin has been over $300. I’ve done my research and talked to a number of other investors who definitely believe that the values for these digital assets are set to explode in the real near future..
So here’s my proposal. Anyone that would like to participate in making some profit in the crypto currency phenomenon, but are completely alien to how to get into it, I am asking for donations with your contact information. My intentions are two-fold. First is to pay off my debt and second is to payback all the people that were generous enough to donate any amount that they felt they could donate. Any amount would greatly be appreciated, but the more I collect the more I can place in buy orders and holding those crypto currency assets until they explode well over 500% in profit.
I recently lost my son to SIDS. Being a mother was the most important, rewarding thing I’ve ever done. I loved my son more than life and one day, he was gone. I have no other children. My partner left right away, which was fine because that was a terrible relationship. I am grieving to the full extent of the word and I’m suffering from PTSD from his loss. I decided to move across the country to be closer to my family. Family seems like the most important thing right now and having people to love is so precious to me. However, they still live a few hours away from where I could find work. Moving across the country was expensive and I have many bills associated with both the birth and death of my son. I work for the government and the job I got here is extremely stressful. I have a caseload and am beholden to production standards so I have to make my numbers everyday. I want to have the self determination to live the best life that I can. My son never got the chance. I don’t want to waste mine.
I live with a lot of sadness, but realize my life could be better if I was able to have some control of my day to day. I noticed a business for sale that could be within reach, but I have no assets and no savings to give a down payment. I would love to be part of a community instead of just toiling away everyday to pay my bills. I want to interact with people and form real relationships. I think doing this would enable me to find at least a fraction of the happiness I had when my Roger was here. Please help me do this in his memory. Help me to not waste my life being unhappy at work and to know that I can make this dream come true. paypal.me/steffsaint
I have been working hard on building a successful life. I get my first job when I was 14 years old. I come from a family that has been deeply affected by the grips of poverty. I grew up in a single parent household, raised by my mother. Me and my four sisters never knew our father. We were too young to remember when he left.
With an adverse background comes many barriers on the road to success. Families who come from adverse backgrounds do not understand the concept or even support the notion of entrepreneurship. I always though I could raise my family out of poverty alone, but at this point in my life I realize that success come with the help of others.
I started a technology firm that focuses on leveraging the use of technology. My main clients are those who can use my expertise the most: Small businesses, non-profits, and other entrepreneurs. We live in a digital age and the effective use of technology is key to almost any business venture. I have helped dozens of people build a business that they never though they could have. I can work with any budget to make a business owners vision come to life. Digital literacy, innovation and creativity is the key to success. My team can do anything from web design, cyber security and infrastructure, application development, you name it, we can do it, and quite well I might add. We’ve built everything from intranets to cyber schools. There are no limits on what can be achieved and I love doing this every day.
With that being said, I’m at the point where I am stuck. I have to maintain a day job in order to continue to make my dream a reality. I’m stuck at making the transition from full time employee to full time entrepreneur. I have an established clientele base that I cant fully cater to because 8 to 12 hours a day is being spent at someone else’s company. I did the math, and with $10,000 dollars I can transition full time into making dreams come true. I have the skills, the clients, the passion, and the expertise. Now I just need the funding. I do have a brick and mortar office that you could visit anytime.
If you got this far. Thank you for taking your time to read this. I appreciate you. I love you.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Hi my name is Riana and I am 19 years old. I have been working on this swimsuit brand for 2 years now and so far everything has been coming to plan. I was able to make the most progress which I am proud of with no money.RI-MIX (my brand) defies the social norms of today’s society by introducing the concept of lingerie to the beach.Lingerie is known to be risqué, and something meant not to be seen outdoors. No one has stepped outside the box until now. My business will be the first Caribbean swimsuit label to present luxury swimwear in the form of lingerie.RI-MIX revolutionizes the way women wear swimsuits, merging the boundaries between risqué and classy all while making old new again.This business promotes self-love and the usage of positive body images.We provide fresh looks and timeless concepts.RI-MIX reintroduces the idea of the “real woman” embracing their imperfections back into mainstream media.I would like $8,000.00 to cover production costs and trademarking my logo.Right now the goal is to get my samples made, then promote, then do a launch party in Barbados then accept orders.The capital will really come in handy after all of this is done.I just need some money to start off. Im in the middle of getting my tech packs made from my original designs and then i’ll be ready to get my samples made to handle promotions.
My name is Sead and I am in need for some financial help to start in home business with creating apps for play store and to start my long time wish of creating home décor ornaments.
Normally I would not ask for financial help, but the thing is I am without a job at the moment and me and my family live under social welfare. I have supporting wife, four kids and twins on the way. State is helping out as much as they can, but that covers basic everyday needs. My biggest problem is that I don’t have a job. Not because I don’t want to work, but because I relocated from one non EU country to EU country where my wife lives. By the law, I am not entitled for work permit for next 6 months. By that time, my family will be seriously damaged by financial situation.
On the other hand, I have so much to offer in diy sector and apps creating business. The fee for developers account is 25€, which I can’t spare so that I can upload my works and start working.
I would appreciate any help with donations, so that I could start pulling my own weight and support my family properly.
Thank you in advance!
come one, come all to the amazing, astonishing, incredible…just kidding. Nothing incredible about this story, I promise! Recently I left my job at United Airlines because of some rather unsavory behavior from my superiors..like you haven’t heard something in the news about United Airlines! Beating passengers, killing pets..you name it. I decided I couldn’t do it anymore, got with a lawyer and the HR specialist in the company, and I’m making my way towards resolution!
While I worked there, I was approached by a VIP passenger who offered to guide me..a mentor so to speak. He taught me well, and now I am growing my business from the ground up. Getting regular traffic, making a few low ticket item sales, etc. starting this entrepreneurship journey has been hard BUT a brilliant mind once said, “People fail to become successful because they fail to treat themselves like they deserve success.”
But, I digress.
With the sudden loss of traditional employment, the fees associated with taking United to court, and the piling bills, I come to YOU, asking for help. I am seeking donations to help me during this challenging time. I appreciate you!
My names Carla. I have come up with an app that will help people in the adult entertainment industry. It’s the first of its kind, so the idea is under wraps at the moment. I feel like the idea could revolutionise the industry. I have looked into getting the app made and it’s in the very early stages. There is so much involved in the process it’s overwhelming. I’m also renovating my house, which for those who have done it would know, it’s a money pit!
I’m super keen to get this up and going, as it is such a great concept, however I’ve never done anything like this before.
For those in business would appreciate, sometimes you just need a good idea, but also funding to kick start that idea.
Ide love and appreciate some support from business minded people who understand the challenges involved with a start up.
Thanks in advance.
First of all, I’m a Peruvian architect (that’s why English isn’t my native language), with 29 yrs old and who wants to pay his debts and have the opportunity to start his own office.
Look, it all starts in 2015, I always want to find a job, and every time I find them they last for several months (government jobs here are achieved through influences and interests). As time passed, there was always an inconvenience in the house (I still live with my mother), and loans had to be taken from the banks in order to move forward. So it got to the point of no longer being able, finding desperate and frustrated having a debt that can’t be repaid, that my mother earns very little and that I find myself without work. It is frustrating and exasperating.
Why is there no work in private companies?, for the knowledge that acquired over time, the programs that I learned, what I want to pay is very little and work very poorly valued. Work and exponential clients exist, that my city is a small city and in a slight growth (Tacna, 400 million inhabitants). But people do not have confidence in giving money to someone who does not have an office or a place to go and look for them. He made my scams, he published me on the internet, but I can’t get it. This situation is suffocating.
My mother, despite all the problems we have had, has faith in me and I also have faith in me. He wants to help me, it turns out that in his house there is a space (with access to the street) where I could build my office. Currently I have online training (since I do not have money) with different programs to open my office and advertise online and start my own business.
Currently my debt is S/.6,770.66 (Nuevos Soles) = $ 1995.00 dollars, and we need the amount of S/.7420.00 (Nuevos Soles) = 2120.00 dollars to be able to build the office.
I’m going to be serious here. At least I would like to be able to pay off my debt and then take out a loan and open the office on my own.
But I could not thank you more and God if I have the money for both and start my own way with what I love most, architecture.

Hello, thank you for stopping by my story. A year and a few months ago I opened a small take-out. I started off with a very small capital and am having a very hard time running the place, even when I’m working 6-7 days a week. When I bought the place from the previous owners, it was a total disaster. Everything from the frig, freezers, stove range all left in bad shape. I was able to repair and save some of the appliances, but most of the appliances I had to either call the recycle shop or throw it away. I did not expect so much of my capital going to repairing, plumbing and payments to vendors and different licenses needed to open a restaurant. So basically, most of my capital went to and still is going to some of these payments. My take-out is starting to pick up and I can use the extra help, but can’t hire someone because I don’t have any working capital. I applied to a few funding places, but I don’t have good credit, so all the places I can get funds from are very high in interest. I put everything and literally all my savings into this small take-out and I would do any work to be able to keep this place. I know nothing in life comes for free. And I also don’t want to quit. I feel that every difficulty is an opportunity! Once my business takes off, I want to help others who are in the same situation that I am in. Any amount will help. Thank you for reading. https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/teeemixu
Innovative New Startup close to tapping into a 2.85B Market may fail if crucial support isn’t found.
– My name is David, and I’ve invested almost everything I have over the past 3 years; I am very close to production of a important consumer product that is expected to yield a handsome share once introduced, but I need crucial help from a supporter to fund initial prototype and production, or I will lose it all.
I have no prior investors or partners. I have very little outstanding debt, I just don’t make enough money at my day job to continue to fund.
My entire savings over the years has gone into this product. The money received from a supporter(s) will go directly into product initial manufacture. Please help me fulfill this business dream, and allow for this very important product to make it into production.
I thank you in advance for your consideration.
Hi, I need startup capital to setup a new business. I have lots of potential but the one thing that consistently gets in my way is money. Funding or lack thereof when you want to fulfill your dreams or goals but cannot due to this one thing. I’ve always had the time and energy, but just not enough money ever to get things moving. Getting it through more traditional means is even harder especially when it comes to credit and employment. My goal is to fulfill my business idea and get it up and going, and with the funding I could finally do that. Also, I’ve always wanted to get in a position where I could help others. I feel that if you can help someone in need, then we should. Of course if it doesn’t place a strain on self by doing so. Highly reach people don’t deal with the issues most people do and not all of us are looking for a handout. Some like myself, wants enough to get my dream and goal met then work at it and go from there. I personally don’t care about being rich, but I do care about getting in a position where I don’t have to struggle anymore. Being my own boss and the freedom to enjoy life for once and not always be stressed out about never having enough money. I don’t need an outrageous amount of money to get there, I just need enough to make this happen for myself. Call it money for me to become more independent and won’t have to ask again, but instead be able to give back. This is honestly what I want to do and will get started immediately after I receive the funds. I need 10,000 to accomplish my goal and be an owner instead of an employee.

My name is Chris, looking for a little help on my cause.
Im a Venezuelan, in this Country the minimum montlhy wage is around 3-5$, yes, 5$ A MONTH.
Since our economy is pretty damaged right now, i do my best as a freelancer on the net, doing different types of jobs to get a few dolars and exchange them for venezuelan currency. This was going too well, i could manage to pay my studies and help my mother.
This way of getting money was really good for me since dolars are way too overpriced in here.
But here comes the problem, few days ago some of my computer parts burned up as a result of some electric power shutdowns (This happens very often on my area)
So this time im asking for help to get my computer running up once again and also a voltage protector so it won’t happen again.
i would be very grateful if someone helps me out, i dont need a high quality processor or RAM since i can do most of the jobs that i usually do with a decent rig like i had (3GB Ram, Dual Core Proc at 2.0 ghz)
Of course, getting better parts would take me to a next level as i can apply for better internet jobs.
Thats everything i need. As a last fact, there are many stores in here that accepts payments with amazon giftcards, and this way would be easier for me to buy them.
Thanks in advance.
This is my story.
I’m ethical vegan woman. I am atheist. I belive in love
and in its power. I think it is the only way for save us
and our world. Five years ago I started searching and
reading unconvetional sources of information to
understand better the concequences of industrial
capitalism. Many associations, organisations, groups
kept saying how incredibily important protect, conserve
and help the environment but too often these requests
are almost never heard.
Three years ago I was without work and I decided to open
a place where people can find informations to
sustainably and ethically live on this planet.
I had no money to realize my project. I took a state
funding for women entrepreneurs and I started my project
in Italy, in Tuscany. This project was my dream: I
opened a shop of organic products grown and produced by
small family-run farms. All packings were biodegradable
and compostable. The space was cosy and quite homey.
I had made a dream and I was happy to create an
alternative to the traditional markets.
Unfortunately little progress has been made during these
last years and large retailers are attracting more
customers through the strength of their offer as a
result of the economic and financial crisis.
Small shops like mine were suffering the most.
I started this project alone. I’m still alone. I worked
hard, I pushed myself in these 3 years but it didn’t
matter. Taxes are so high, there’s no way to get ahead.
Everything I’ve cashed I repaid to taxes, electric
bills, bank interest, etc… I never had a salary for
me. Now I don’t even have enough money for electric
bills and my debts is increasing constantly.
I CAN’T CLOSE MY SHOP: this is the biggest problem.
The state funding provides that my shop must open for 5
years and if I close my shop before this time (I have
two more years) I have to give back all that money en
bloc. My hands are tied. Banks don’t give me credit
because I have debts and I can’t close the shop because
I don’t have money.
Please, help me to close my shop. I want to leave Italy
and start a new project in a place where Life is
considered to be more important than money.
This is the first time that I asked some help but there is no other solution.
I need 50.000,00 euro to be free again.
Thank you all! and excuse me for my English!
Only love <3

Hi. I’m trying to raise $50000 to get myself out of debt and get out of this town where I grew up in the farming industry and ended up losing everything including my wife and family, I am stuck in a rut here and cannot get out of it no matter what I try to do because the past just keeps blowing up in my face, Due to my bad credit history I cannot borrow money to get back on my feet. I have recently met a new lady who I love very much and want to marry soon and I want to move to where she lives and start over with a clean slate and start up a small business together, I need to raise money somehow to repair and register my work vehicle so that I can get over there and have some operating capital to start our new small business where we have the opportunity to buy a truck and go strait to work so that I can pay off my debts and be free once again. Although I’m trying to raise 50k I will be able to start the transition once I have about 5k.
I hate the fact that I have had to resort to asking for money like this but see no other way at the present, I would be more than happy to pay back any money raised once I am back on my feet again.
Thankyou in advance to anyone who finds it in their heart to donate or lend me the money…

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, my name is Steven Newsom.
If allowed, I would like to take a moment of your time to tell you a story of a young African-American man who faces immense odds in fulfilling his dreams of becoming an industry standard photographer.
This man has grown up in a time and country that alienates people of a certain class and color. This man has tried to fulfill what is called the “American Dream” but has been met much strife in his journey. This man’s name is Steven Newsom.
I grew in an urban area that was plagued by poverty and low ambition. Due to the fact that I am a truck driver’s son I developed a since of world at a very early age. My father, quite often, took me and my brother on trips across the country in his truck when we were out of school for the summer. This instilled in me a great sense boundless aspiration. I grew up with a since of discontent because I did not know which direction my life was going to go as I got older. I have suffered many tragedies in my short life time but I have always keep a positive outlook on what the future may hold for me. Through my teenage years up to early adulthood I have tried many things but could not quite find the niche that I felt was going to be the catalyst for my legacy.
During my tenure in college I learned that I could not learn at a normal pace to progress through college course studies. I was the guy who would sit in the middle of the floor in my room with my legs crossed with numerous books around me studying until I would get a headache. This would cause slight depression and anxiety due to the fact that I had set such high goals for myself during this time. Unfortunately, my time in school was riddled with opposition and struggle do to the fact that my father could not work due to his disability (disabled Vietnam veteran) and working while in school and sending some money home to support my parents took its toll on my efforts to graduate. Now I am suffering from mounds of student loan debt and not so good credit because my efforts to implement a better life.
One-day I drove through a very affluent neighborhood in a city named Nashville, Tennessee, this neighborhood was filled with homes that averaged a million dollars or more and would easily be considered a location for the upper echelon of the city. While driving through this neighborhood I was amazed at the beautifully adorned structures and landscapes that were flawless in nature and couldn’t help but to wonder how a place so beautiful is not known to the world. As I exited this neighborhood I could not help but to relish in the idea of how wonderful it would be to have portraits of some of these wonderfully constructed homes. It was felt as though I could take on the challenge of creating beautiful imagery of these structures to produce something miraculous. My next move was to go to the local retail store and purchase a Fugi disposable camera in the beliefs that I could capture something amazing. During this period, I had purchased many disposable cameras and had taken hundreds of pictures of locations in this city and had developed an addiction to the art of photography.
Two years after I implemented this photography journey I traveled home to the local city that I grew up in for the Christmas holidays. By this time my family was aware of my immense love for photography. This particular year, my brother saved up his money to purchase me my very first Canon PowerShot camera. This was something that brought a flux of tears streaming down my face and gave me such a moment of hope and admiration to the potential opportunities that the future held for me. Upon returning home I was excited beyond words to use my new camera and I took pictures of everything in sight. I accumulated a great portfolio of landscape photography for the times and standards of the industry. My passion for photography grew beyond leaps and bounds.
As time passed I developed a scholastic approach to gaining the true knowledge of photography and all things known to the industry so that I may become a leader in the local field. This included numerous workshops, photography event attendance, books and online research. Once I had developed a substantial knowledge of the modern-day art I soon realized that I needed a higher end camera. This was something that plagued me for the next couple of years as I could not afford one. The turn of events happened in the year of 2012 when I went home for Christmas again and much to my surprise my brother, parents, and friend put their money together to purchase me a brand-new Canon Rebel T3. As mentioned before I was so overwhelmed to that fact that I had family and friends that believed in me enough to purchase me this wonderful DSLR camera.
Mr. Dolby, I spent the following years developing my sole photography company and taking opportunities to perfect my craft. I have done many photoshoots, quite often with little to no pay, in the attempt of developing a descent portfolio of my work.
The ever-changing genre of photography is quite demanding in terms of cost. This was met with many ups and downs but I persevered for that fact that photography has been and always will be in my heart.
Unfortunately, I am falling behind the requirements of fulfilling all the aspects needed to pursue this career in its entirety. I have been using my Canon Rebel T3 for years now and have done some amazing things but to my dismay I have learned the limitations of my camera and they are limitations that prevent me from taking this all the way.
Every morning that I wake up and every night that I lay down to go to sleep I am thinking about how to be the best. Quite often I sit around in thought wondering what intricate actions could I take to obtain a full-frame camera so that I may progress my company. I have applied for loans that were not approved, I have entered numerous photography contest and I recently applied to the FedEx Small Business Grant contest that I did not win. There are virtually no options for a person like me to obtain something like a full frame camera and lighting gear to improve the quality of my work. This is disheartening to think that I may never have the chance to do something amazing in what I love so dearly. I am not a man with a lot of means but I have had opportunities to prove myself in a field that is saturated with consumers that believe they are photographers but do not have the knowledge I possess in this field.
I, Steven Newsom, am hoping that you can find it in your heart and in your time to help this young man fulfill his dream of becoming a worldly recognized photographer using the outstandingly wonderful Canon brand to get me there. Mr. Dolby, I plead of you, with divine hope and aspiration, to help or assist an individual like me in my journey to become one of the world’s foremost photographers. If there is anything you could suggest or any direction that you can point me in to help me obtain the photography gear that can increase the quality of my work then I would be ETERNALLY grateful and in your debt…
I must thank you for lending me an open mind and heart by reading this letter and I hope it finds you well and in good health.
Good day to all and thank you in advance to letting my title capture your attention. This is my first time asking for money from complete strangers, but I need help and a friend told me this was a great start.
I don’t want to bore you with details of my life and why I’ve have chosen the path of a sage, I just want your attention. 7/10 neighborhoods in Philadelphia have drug corners, junkies and senseless homicides. To me, it seems like it’s on the rise or becoming more public. The sad part about this is that the people that live in these communities blame the police for not doing their jobs, the police blame the people for not speaking up more and those that continue to destroy the community, profit greatly.
That’s why I want to start a community watch in Philadelphia, but it’s not just a community watch & report. We teach the community, by educating them about their Laws and Rights. Protect the community by lending a helping hand when ever someone needs it and assist law enforcement with community activities.
I’m looking for generous people that can help me fulfill this task. All donation are for Equipment, advertisement, labor force and establishing a home base in Philadelphia. The power to make a different is in our own hand, lend me your hand so I can lend mines to others.

I was riding down the highway in my new 2015 Mack heading in to NYC. I hit the New Jersey state line outside of the water gap on I-81 and the police pulled me over. Routine pull over…right.
What can I say? I had an eye infection that was diagnosed as pink eye the next morning in the county jail, I was out at 6pm on bail. The cop had just cause to think i was drunk, then high after blowing 0.0 at the station.
Apparently, the state of New Jersey has only one lab for testing drugs found by police. So, nine months later it was revealed that my unmarked Ziploc bag in fact contained Epsom salt I was using to clear a sore finger. Nine months I couldn’t cross the border so I worked local for $18/hr until the work dried up. The six charges against me were dropped. Unfortunately, the stress of the incident, costs and lost income left me in a mental state disallowing me to drive. Jail here is nothing like in the USA. It was only one night and I still have nightmares. I need $5000 to start my business. If 500 people can help a brother out with $10, I will send each of you a token of my appreciation in the form of a small gift. Any amount is appreciated and everyone will receive thanks with gratitude.

I say Friend as I am looking for someone in this godforsaken world to help me out and give me a chance
My name is Abdullah (I do not want to disclose my surname yet) and I am looking for an opportunity to help build my future and I am looking for an investor to help me cut some slack and gain some years in my life. I am just about to get married (honestly, I don’t even know how I got her to say yes) and I have limited funds to help me provide for her.
I have a plan! Yes, it is a good plan! I want to go into the building game and I just need some funding to get me going. In this day and age, to make money you need to have money, so as I saw your name in the Reddit site someone posted that you guys have instant transaction which must mean you must have a high capital cash flow
Here I am, a human asking another human for help, honestly, I’d be surprised if you’re even reading to this point and even more surprised if you reply to my email, but if you do, know that I do appreciated you going through this.
Regardless, in life I do not want to be rich, I just want to live a well off happy life and to give back to my community, honestly that is the only wish I want. So even if you don’t respond and cannot help me I just want to say thank you, thank you for allowing me to send this to you so I have at least get this off my chest.
Dear Sir or Madame
I think the best way to ask for someone to help me is by being honest.
I am not in a death or life situation , i am sure a lot more people deserve financial help more than me . But i have been knocked down over and over , at my worst timing of need not one soul gave me a fighting chance
I am 28 years of Age male , i have been working hard for the past 8 years , decent job , but i had a dark cloud hovering above me , i was a gambler. I never realized when it started , and whilst i have been battling hair-loss since 20 years of age , i believe the escape of Gambling and the hope of maybe i can earn somewhat a brighter future was what falsely made me believe things will get better. Whilst my money was vanishing my hair was following suite. I never meant to be like this , i am not greedy . Nor Materialistic. Gambling was feeding on my sickness.
Things turned to the absolute worst since i do not have my job anymore. That one job which was the only thing that i had stable in my life. Should have never taken it for granted. I ruined my relationships and friendships , i hate people who take things for granted and people who have had things easy in life . I know everyone deals with their own devil of sorts , there is people who are in a position a trillion times worse than me. I am referring to people who do not realise how lucky they are.
I need 15000 in order to start working again in my own business. Whilst i take the courage and slowly put the pieces of my broken relationships and put an end to that dark cloud following me.
I am not seeking a donation . I would happily return your investment with Monthly payments of $300-350 a month . I know this is a longshot , but i got denied by maybe 6-10 Lending companies
Thank you for taking time and reading this
My name is Bob Robbins and I’m asking for $50,000. I have run my own business for over 10 years repairing computers, cellphones, and tablets; building computers and consulting with small businesses. I currently employee two other individuals that need their job as much as me.
For the last year my business has struggled due to the downturn in the economy in Southwest Virginia. As time has went along, I’ve taken personal loans to keep the doors open and keep my employees paid. I’ve continued this because I have a deep passion for my work and helping those who need us. I’m now facing serious tax delinquency because I chose to not lay off my two employees and got behind paying taxes. The IRS is now coming at me and my family personally to take what they are owed.
I’ve currently got a small business app fresh out of development to sell to shops like ours and other repair industries, which we planned to market nationally and plausibly make a lot of money doing it. After 8 months of development and the hope that this app would turn our business around, I am now looking at being shut down permanently by the IRS. This app was supposed to be the stepping stone to a host of new apps we have planned on releasing once we had the time and money available.
All my hopes to be somebody who could make a difference for my family, my employees, and my community are now in complete jeopardy. I am close to completing my goals, I’m just now afraid I am going to fall short before I get there.
I am asking for $50,000 to settle my tax liens and debt to get back on my feet and complete what I’ve started. I have nothing to offer in return except my gratitude and support. If I do become the millionaire I hope to be one day, then obviously I would be able to compensate you for your time and money.
If you would like to know about me, my business, and who I am then feel free to check out my social links and the website for my new app.
I hope this letter reaches you and that you would consider taking a risk on someone like me.
Thank you for your time.

Hi there! I’m asking for some support for my family, my husband who owns a small family business running since about 7 years, it’s been asked from the producers who is collaborating with for as many years as stated above, an amount of around $5000 I heard, overnight, unexpected. We have a 3 year old son and we’re trying to make a decent living and him and his dad are working hard to sustain all of us. I want to start working this year but it hasn’t been easy with my son around and all I do is for him. So, because of that amount of money (which it wouldn’t be a huge one), we risk the business… he tried talking to them…they’ve been having a nice collaboration over the years, but don’t know why they came up with that. The bank no longer is able to give us and we have nobody to help us in the next 4 days. I wish I can help so we don’t struggle. I don’t want my son to go through any hard times. We are stressed out cause don’t know how to solve this in such short term. There’s many payments around and this amount of money it’s just over our potential right now… I’m trying to reach for help to you guys. We can give it back through monthly payment. Don’t want anything for free. There’s other people who struggle more. I’m just scared of the situation at the present moment…can’t send any proof of the amount asked because my husband doesn’t know I’m trying to help and don’t have in my possession any. If there’s anybody willing to help, I’d ask for proof of whatever he has. Hope someone will reach back. I would be so grateful. Wish health and the best
I sit near fireplace, its winter outside, a little bit cold and I am ready to tell my story. I am 24 years old women from a little country in Europe, now I live in UK for about one year. I love live here, there is a wonderful nature, lot of places where you can be by yourself in mountains near lakes. But let me explain everything from beginning.
My family was never a rich, my mum was a nurse and my father was a policeman, we lived in a house with my grandparents. My mum always trying to create a lovely house atmosphere. But sometimes we lived very poor. I remember when I wanted to buy a new jacket and we together with my mum have to compiled money from savings. I learn how to count and save money. And then I saw this situation in our house, that my parents have to live from payday to payday, I remembered when I thought that I have to help them.
So when I was about 10-12 years old I started to made a decoupage, my mum bought to me a decoupage kit and with my sister we started to made a jewelry. It was about 1 or 2 years journey. We mad earrings from beads and decoupage and trying to sell it. I cannot say that it was very profitable but we made profit from one earring about 1-2£ (exchange from my country currency). But fashion is always a changeable thing and day after day we got fewer and fewer buyers. But this feeling left deep in my heart. I understand that I can make money even I was just a child. And in this first journey I understand that something changed in my head. I was so excited when I sold earrings to my classmates, friends in school and seeing when girls wearing it, I just cannot describe this feeling. It was so excited! And when we earn some money, we together with my sister have got a paper notebook where we wrote everything what we need to bought in our room. I remember when we bought a wonderful tiger rubbish bin. Now when I am told this I think that it was just incredible to bought important stuff in our room instead of bought some candies or toys. Even when we went to the shopping center with my mum I never asked to bought something for me. Because I always knew that we cannot spend a lot of money because we have to buy a food or paid for our bills. I remember that feeling when you saw something in shopping center but you do not say anything to mum because you feel that you are not good or rich enough to buy this. I have to say that it is really hard to remember this. But when I saw these bad days I think I just grow up faster and learn so much about money. My next journey was a little bit successful, maybe because I was an older. I started selling jewelry and women clothes in my town. I have got a Facebook group and I just buying something from eBay or China websites and trying to sell them to my friends or people who liked my group. In the beginning this small business was quite profitable but when I finished a school and started to study in University actually I did not have enough time to do this. But I never forget about my dream and it was more like my passion.
And when I stopped and thought that now will be everything OK, my father’s and my mother’s marriage has become complicated. So long story short I have to take a loan for my studies and I have to earn money for my living in my study town. I remember when I am try to find a job and no one wants to pay a good salary to me because I was a student and I did not have any experience before. I do not say that I did not work anywhere, I worked in factory in my town, I worked in flower shop but these jobs did not put a big plus in my CV. So I decided come back to my passion, one more time I decided to create my own small women clothes business. I used the same Facebook group and started to sell women’s clothes in all of my country. I found suppliers, it has not been a manufacturer it was like a middle man supplier, which have clothes with bigger prices than manufacturers but I have to try it. And yes, I did it. In days, I was in the University and in the evenings I am sell clothes. By myself I packed every order and went to the post office and shipped it. For these moneys I finally could pay for my rent, bought food and when I came back in my origin town I could get some money to my mum or bought some food. Again it was really hard times. We have to stayed together.
The important thing in business is that if you do not reinvest in it than you automatically choose to lose it. So yes, it happens to me again, I just lost my business. I finished University and I have to left everything and moved in UK to my partner. Here I started a new begin. I started to learn English language, improve my social, speaking and writing skills.
From these periods/ journeys I learn so much and I lost so much too, I did not mention here about my grandmother, she was like my mother, she was my strength, she as my teacher in one important word she was everything to me. And yes, she was and now her do not be here anymore. But this story is about my dream and my grandmother left to me all strength that I finally will reach my dream.
Finally, I can tell here about my last journey. I am very responsible, curious, strong and honest person and I always try to do all the best what I can. Now I am a smart women and exactly know what I want to do in this journey. I started from information research, I listen a lot of successful business persons training, I read a lot of books. But those things are not enough to create a successful business. So I made a research and I have a long list of manufacturers who can provide to me a bulk of clothes, also I contacted them for cooperation. I create vision about my own website and even that I create my own brand logo. I learn lot of about marketing, about business advertising. To sum up I have all information and vision how and what I have to do.
And here I just have stopped for a second. However, I realized that by myself to create a profitable business is not a very easy. I got a plan, I study hard but in this world where are a lot of chaos and everyone want to be a popular, a “star”, I just cannot do it alone. I believe that this story reached your heart because I am telling it from my own heart. In the end I just want to say that everyone deserve success. And it is really hard to ask a help hand when you never asked it before and support is the main thing what I am asking here. I strongly believe that I am ready enough to create my last and powerful journey with “Eiba” women clothing stores around the UK. I just need a small help/invest from you. Because I strongly believe that successful people have a lot of power.
Hello my name is Duane from Virginia Beach, VA. I am requesting help for 2 reasons. I have a small carpet cleaning business which I am in my first year of operation. At this point I am the sole owner/operator here at Terryclean and am struggling to find money for advertising in the Residential field of cleaning. I currently have only a couple of commercial accounts that are keeping me from going broke but I’m not making any profits yet. So my first request is some kind of help in this area, it doesn’t even have to be money as an endorsement or partner in advertising would be greatly appreciated. Although, there is no money for Christmas this year and I’m feeling a little sad for not being able to have a good Christmas for my son. The main reason for this request however is something that I did over the summer that gave me great satisfaction and happiness. I cleaned carpet for free for a couple of terminal cancer patients and they were so grateful and appreciative. I am a firm believer in the concept of giving ends up giving you great rewards in the future. I have a desire to offer this service on a large scale to not only cancer patients but also people that just can’t clean for themselves. I am talking about a full service cleaning, especially carpet and upholstery for people. It really helps to have a sanitary environment to live but this is especially important to people with compromised immune systems. I was so happy I could do this for these people at the time and greatly desire to help many more people. Ill be honest, I’m hoping to grow the paying side of my business as well but I really want to make this happen so I can help people out and at the same time get the name of my business out there for the world to see! I created a gofundme page but have not been able to generate any donations yet. Whomever eyes this letter make it to, I hope that this is something that strikes a positive outcome for us all. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! please donate here paypal.me/terryclean or

Hello! We need some financial help for the startup of several websites/mobile applications (platform / social-network / community / entertainment / digital radio…). We need to have access to a Web/App developer, an encoder and an HTML5 / CSS3 integrator for the construction of 5 websites and 3 mobiles application:
– FreeMusicUniverse (Digital Radio / Free Music)
– Musicls (Music Lessons / Piano / Violin / Singing / Guitar / Drums / Perc …)
– Videver (Social Network / Messaging / Video)
+ Videver will be a social messaging/video network that will look like a mix of Skype / LinkedIn / Facebook / Viber … Since a lot of people are entering the business world, people need a social platform much more private, serious and access to a specific objective with a reason in particular. So, in this platform people will not be able to access the profile of other members if they do not know their identifier (ID). No fake people, only professionals and people who know what they are doing on this platform. Each member will have their profile, their photo / banner and a customizable description with the possibility to add more information (City / Country / Employment / Education / Status …). The difference with our community is that members will not be able to publish on their profile, or even ask for a friendship to have a list of friends. This platform will only focus on video calls and private messaging (2 or more people). There will be many important tools like: Agenda / Address Book / Calendars / Events / Tasks / Contact / Note + VideoNote … With the possibility to join several “groups” in different domains (and to receive a notification when there is Ex: a meeting (there where comes the black bubble of the logo with a “play button”)). This social-network will be ideal for business people, investors, professionals, investigators as well as for young entrepreneurs (who are not necessarily focused to feelings / attachment but more about business/work …
There will be a mobile version on Android / IOS. Each member will receive some “badges” throughout their journey on the platform ex: Welcome to Videver/1000 private messages sent/10 hours of video/100 hours of video/500 contacts added/100 accomplishment tasks/Premium Account/1 different badge for each country/Blue Hook (People with all badges) And many others … (100 in all).
Offer: Free the first month (with 1 hour video call).
+ FreeMusicUniverse will be a free music platform / community (web) (royalty free) licensed under “Creative Commons” license. This license allows the use (commercial or not) and the distribution (in particular of multimedia works on internet), provided to attribute to the author / label the necessary credit by quoting its name and to share the work in the same conditions. Licensed music “Creative Commons” can be used for any commercial project, TV program, advertising, film, video (youtube) or simply to add an atmosphere in commercial spaces. This platform will bring together the best independent artists / labels with 21 categories: (Pop / Chillout / R & B / HipHop / Reggae / House / Electronic / Breaks / Dubstep / Hardstyle / Folk / Blues / Classical / Jazz / Country / Rock / Metal / Cinematic / Ambient / Instrumental / Vocal). We will work by “Soundcloud link” sharing, so any songs that will not be released on soundcloud will be released through our 12 “independent” channels mentionned at the end. This website will be a “blog” where we will publish several articles about labels / artists / events / parties …
There will be a “digital radio” of free music that will play the best music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with a “Hit list” section where people can vote and get the best songs in the “top 10”.
This “digital radio” will be in partnership with:
– Cell Recordings
– Section 808
– Palace Recordings
– X Collective
– Sparks Global Rec.
– Clutch Records
– Momentum Recordings
This website will become a positive asset for soundcloud and will be different from other websites that are at the top of royalty free music because the people will not be able to create an account and publish what they want, they will have to send us their tracks for it to be accepted and published (by soundcloud link).
The “fan gates” download system (soundcloud) allows a person to download free a song if that the person like / comment / repost the track and subscribe to the artists / labels on the social networks (facebook / youtube / twitter / spotify / soundcloud …). Once done and checked (automatically), the download is triggered. If you want
to hear what quality of free music exists today, you can download this “compressed folder” with several royalty free music, (its worth listening, trust me): https://uploadfiles.io/lrali
These are really professional and well made songs (with vocals). None of these songs are published on the internet sites that are at the top of royalty free music, each of which are signed to independent labels on soundcloud. Hundreds of free music come out every day and this only increases each year.
A division of 12 independent “digital”, free music labels will be created by our team:
– BangerUniverse Music (Electro House / Big Room / Progressive / Vocal)
– WonderUniverse Music (Pop / Chill / Trap / Piano / Vocal)
– EpicUniverse Music (Dubstep / Brostep / Breakstep / Vocal)
– HardUniverse Music (Hardstyle / Hardcore / Techno / Vocal)
– HouseUniverse Music (Deep / Tropical / Future / House / Groove / Vocal)
– RapUniverse Music (Rap / Hip-Hop / R & B / Vocal)
– ReggaeUniverse Music (Reggae / Dub / Dancehall / Vocal)
– ClassicalUniverse Music (Classical / Jazz / Blues / Vocal)
– CountryUniverse Music (Country / Western / Rock / Vocal / Altern.)
– RockUniverse Music (Rock / Folks / Vocal / Altern.)
– MetalUniverse Music (Heavy / Dark / Metal / Punk / Vocal / Altern.)
– CinematicUniverse Music (Orchestral / Soundscape / Music for movies).
We will also offer our services in the descriptions (soundcloud) of each of these digital labels, which will certainly have a lot of visibility in a few years (mainly on youtube because we will not only share our works but all the music of “freemusicuniverse.com” through 12 youtube channels that will be active every day). FreeMusicUniverse and our independent labels may become the center of free music (royalty free) and a positive asset for soundcloud in a few years. We will sell different music lessons online (by video and text), on a website and a mobile application (Musicls). There will be Piano / Vocals / Guitar / Bass / Drums /
Violin / Saxophone / Percussion … In 2 languages (English / French). Musicls will certainly become one of the best website/app of music course online.
Hindsight is 20/20.
If I had started getting serious financial stability and real estate investing 20 years ago, today I would be set. This is not the case. Only about 4 years ago I decided to explore the landlord and fixing and flipping. I had no concept on the idea of passive and active income. Terms such as assets and liabilities, cashflow, portfolio and diversity were foreign languages.
Unfortunately for me I started a little late in life. I just recently retired from my 9-5 and now doing Real Estate Investing and I am just starting to teach the children of my Uncles, Aunts, Sisters, Cousins and myself about financial independence. Twice a month, every month I’m volunteering my time to educate not only the kids, but their parents, as well. Admittedly, I still have much to learn, but what I do know I will share and continue to share until the kids are sick and tired of me sharing, and even then…. I will continue to share and educate.
I’m seeking $350,000. Half will be used for personal use (full disclosure). Reason being, I want this to be a positive experience for everyone. It would look pretty bad for their mentor to NEED a mentor. I’ve made choices (for my family) which put me in a hole so far I wanted to lay permanently there. I’m dusting myself off and looking for a second chance. I do not plan to abuse anyone’s hard earned money, for I know the value of a dollar now. My fear is being foreclosed and homeless. That would look very bad for me, standing as a “guru” and my life isn’t right. $175,000 would be used to advertise, open a center, R&D, hire a staff and to visually show my students how “Rags to Riches” can be achieved (not by begging) through hard work, dedication, commitment, integrity, persistence and perseverance. They need to see that it is real.
I wish someone was there to educate me on the topics I plan to teach. This is something all of us need to know. I’m sick and tired of asking if someone hits the lotto, what would you do with the money and all I hear is how to SPEND it. I was taught how to live in the ghetto. I was taught how to apply for federal benefits. I was taught how to apply to live in the projects and why it would benefit me (G/E incl. H/H incl. Rent Controlled).
This is not the message I want the next generations to adapt. They need to stand on their own merit and not depend on “the system” for survival. Please help my cause.
I’ve not attached any real documents but I will produce them on request.
I would request if someone could donate time, as well, to one of my teachings as a guest speaker. Right now I’m holding these meeting out of our houses. I would like to expand, eventually. Still, it would mean everything to me and even more to the kids (even if they don’t know it now).
Like I expressed and will reiterate, hindsight is 20/20. My story can very well be someone else’s. I wonder if I had the knowledge, would I have used it properly. Most assuredly, without the knowledge, poverty is the path chosen. Help me save the future of our world, one kid at a time.
Thank you in advance.
I’ve been working on the FX market for almost a decade. It’s been tough. Every failure a learning opportunity. Every profitable day great. I’ve refined, tested, re-tested and attempted many methodologies. I’m now clear on what to do, how to do it, when to do it and what size my orders should be. Unfortunately, I’m out of capital. Drowning in debt to be clear. The secret lies in the percentages.
What I’m seeking is a £100k or working capital. From which I will generate 1% a day, netting around £20k a month. The account will double in 5 months.
I’m happy and prepared to return 25% equity in 5 months. So your donation to my cause will be paid back, with interest, gladly. I don’t want to waste these 9 years of my life by stopping now. That would be tragic.
I’ve been fund raising for 9 months with no results. So now there is no money left to work with. The expression ‘money makes money’ is most pertinent at this juncture.
I just need one investor, or group of investors, to give me a chance to prove it, generate the profit I’m capable of, and return the investment with interest.
PS: I would be happy with an account of half of that size. £50k. It would take me longer to get to where I want to be. But it would still be possible.
Thank you. Looking forward to working for you.
In 2014 I opened a retail business. For the first 2 years it was doing very well and I expanded and opened an additional 2 stores. In April 2017 I opened the fourth store. This is where my troubles began. The first store was no longer doing so good as all my energy was focused on the new store. I hired a manager and was under the impression she was doing a good job. She ended up firing half of the employees because she didn’t get along with them, did not provide proper training to new employees and hired people who where horrible at customer service. She was employed from feb. to june. She caused a tremendous amount of damage financially, to the customer service and team moral. I fired her and went back to managing the store myself.
An opportunity came up to take a smaller store with 1/2 the rent on the same street. Also 2 weeks before a big brand approached me about wanting to rent my store. This seemed amazing and the timing was perfect. I closed the contract on the new store and was in final stages of the contract on my store.
A week before the new renters had the appointment to sign they cancled. Now I was stick with 2 stores. I have been trying to rent out the store and in the meantime pay the rent. I am taking money from my other stores to try to cover the expenses but it has completley drained me. My account is 7,000 euro overdrafted, i have fallen behind on many bills. Personal and business. I owe sales tax and socia security.
I am a single mom with 2 kids. I waske up every day at 6:00 and get home afte 20:00. I will not give up. I am a hard worker. Though I also realize that if I dont get some help I will loose my business.
I am 3 months behind on my rent and I will be evicted.
To get out of this mess and get back on track I need 200,000
Please help. I have no where else to turn.
I can email statements and bills for everything upon request.
Hi there I am a 24 year old woman reaching out for help at achieving my dreams. I am a self employed dream chaser who needs a little help and figured I would come here to ask. I just inherited a house with 15 acres of land on it. This is my dream property. It hS always been my dream to grow food, build sustainable structures, gardens and help people in my community. Now I have the space to do so and not the funds. I am reaching out hoping you will see the potential in this as well and help me get started. I will have to pay property taxes soon which I got quoted around 2,000$. Also I am hoping to raise money to buy a nice greenhouse 3,500$ so that I can grow food all year round. I am also asking with help for money to use for gardening tools, seeds and soil. This is a cause that not only helps me feed myself, but helps me start something that will benefit so many more people than just myself. I want to participate in local farmers markets, become part of the community. Build multiple sustainable structures and help people live a more simple life using the land as our resources. Right now, I just need a little help getting on my feet and getting this going the way I know and believe it should be! I would just be so grateful for any help in achieving my goals and making my dreams come true! I’m not helpless, I have income, it’s just not enough for me to get this going. I am only asking for enough to truly get me started doing this !!
The idea of begging or asking for money is not my thing, as money is very hard to come by these days, but when you are fully convinced that the venture you are about to enter into is sure to be a success, one has no choice than to swallow that pride and go down on the knees and beg and that is literally what I am doing now.
You see friends, for the past decade I have been looking into the possibility of marketing a service that would see ordinary people making money offering expert advice over the phone, instead of wasting valuable time chatting on Facebook, WhatsApp and other social networking platforms. This has led me to hire a programmer to do a software that would allow individuals to bill callers using a Prepaid Calling Card, similar to those calling cards that are used for placing outgoing calls.
The caller dials/those seeking advice on any subject, dials a designated access number, enters pin #, then select the service/s needed, as the caller talks or ask questions, the time gets deducted just as with a regular Prepaid Calling Card.
This will allow Attorney’s Medical doctors, Nurses, Nail or Hair Technicians and others to offer their expert advice over the phone on a Pay Per Call Basis, thus getting paid for their services even before they start to talk, as these cards will be sold in retail outlets so that those seeking whatever advice purchase these Prepaid Advice Cards prior to talking.
There are so many different ways that these cards can be used, they can be used for Dating or Adult Lines, possibilities are endless.
Having given a glimpse of what this is all about, I am begging for your help in making this dream a reality. As mentioned before the platform is ready. All that is needed is for me to pay the developer, have Cards printed and placed in stores, I also have a web login for retailers to sell credits as well as top up accounts globally.
The amount that I need presently is US$5,000, this will be a loan with a generous percentage given back.
Please note that I am in the Island of Jamaica, but there is no section for Jamaica, as a result I selected USA since that is the closest.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m looking to go on mission trips by myself and spread the word of god in parts of the third world. I need angels to help reach my goal.
Any left over money will be used towards business capital and tariff towards starting a clothing company that will keep adults with autism working.
hello and thank you beyond words if you’ve reached and take action to support me in this much needed time.
I’ve tried to explain my path to friends and family but have received little to no support on a big vision that seems to be working and leading to a great development. At the times beforehand, some of the greatest inventors, writers and founders were living in their car. I’m not too far off and we don’t have to detail the struggle.
Since opening and starting a wellness practice with no business loan or credit card, I’ve helped hundreds or thousands naturally get better but have paid out of pocket for all expenses and even sacrificed my own rented room to keep the doors open. Many have questioned why I would be so invested and do not see a value to natural approaches to health. We are at a critical time in this country’s health, and I stand for and with those who take their health into their own hands and choose natural strategies.
The past few years have developed both a vision and the courage to write. I’m finishing a short book that I hope to sell, and have been working on this start up full time since March 2017. I currently have exhausted all reserves and seek help to finish a book that helps others, to work on a startup company that is about to get picked up (need to raise 3,000) and with student loans at 400,000, I have never qualified for a student loan but am a competent and passionate doctor. Please help me continue to work and serve at this needed time, anything helps and thank you so much.
I did not think my life would get to this level within a year.
I graduated from a college back in 2014, got an offer to work at a bank as a loan officer at decent salary but had to turn it down since my parents wanted me to help them to run a small restaurant. We bought the business from a church member, did not have realtor or lawyer to handle everything thinking we had everything under control. Who would have thought that church member that we have known over 20yrs would try to harm us in anyway? Well, we learned some expensive lesson. This lady did not pay ANY tax for 8 years while in business, did not tell us at all and we had to find out about it little after we took over the business. We did not have much funds left since we barely bought the business and 8 years worth of taxes and interest were just something that could not be paid from our pocket. We had to get some additional loans from the bank which was a short term relief.
Now we are in 3rd year of the business and trying our best to stay on top of all the payments that we have to pay back. And then… Hurricane Harvey hit.
Both 2 A/C units were damaged due to flooding and it is going to cost around $10,000 to replace. Our house situation seems even worse. Whole roof need to be replaced and that is another $15,000. We do have an insurance but flooding is not included.
we could not operate for three weeks so cannot pay rent or loan and many more. All my credit cards are maxed out, car payments are overdue.
I am overly stressed and keep using my credit card to cover some funds here and there and it is not looking good at all.
i would really appreciate all the help. It will mean so much to us. I am hopeless at this moment and honestly not sure how much longer i can take all this stress.

Let us dive right into it. My name is Jaimie and i am an avid gamer. I would go as far as to say that gaming is my life, but I simply just do not have the equipment to say such a thing. The computer I own can barely run the games I play. Growing up I was always passionate about video games and was also always very good at them. But my parents never entertained the thought of me playing video games all the time therefor never supported the habit. I am 27 years old with no job and no car and live in a small town where basically if you don’t have a vehicle or some one to buy you a vehicle you’re pretty much in trouble. Now I am basically asking for funding to be able to buy my self some brand new high tech up-to-date computer gaming equipment that I can use to create and edit content gaming videos as well as live stream or become a professional gamer. It has been a dream of mine since before it even became such a popular thing to create cool fun footage and tutorials and stuff like that, that I could share with anyone who would be interested in watching. The gaming industry is more popular than ever with websites dedicated to it. I have a fun out going personality and what also gives me confidence that I would be more than successful in the industry is that I have had friends that loved to watch me play any game and just dominate and would beg me to keep playing even when I didn’t want to any more. Most people who are successful in this area had parents or guardians who supported their passion. I had the opposite. I would just like the opportunity to either become a pro gamer or a massively popular content creator. That is my dream! The only thing holding me back is my lack of funds to afford the required hardware to do so! Now if anyone who is willing to fund me would like to make a deal with me that when I do end up making a career out of this and the person responsible for helping me would like a portion of my earning that would be something I would not hesitate to accept! All I really need is around 1500 dollars worth of equipment to take the first step up my dream ladder! Most people on here are just asking for money to help them get by… I am asking for money to help start my life! I appreciate anyone who just took the time to read this let alone consider donating. I dont know what more else to say other than I look forward to hearing from anyone. Thank you =)
I have a Patent Pending Invention that’s at a stand still for now I didn’t know it would be so difficult and costly to get a product out there. Dealing with the Patent Office after several claims to get corrections and changes was very stressful but I hang in there by the grace of God I can now move forward. With my 9 to 5 job that aloud me to eat and keep a roof over my head but not to proceed with funding my invention. The funds that I’m soliciting for will be utilized for startup capital for purchasing , marketing and developing a sales strategy. This is my very first time inventing anything in my life it has been a tedious venture and with your help I should be able to get over this hurdle and put the hard work in to become successful and help others. The funds amount I’m requesting is $15000.00 any amount would be greatly appreciated also I’m attaching my Utility Design Application from the Patent Office this is the real deal thanks and God Bless.
Hello ! First of all, thank you for reading this. I created this donation request in order to get some funding for my programming projects by the name of “JummyDear Games”. I will provide you the background of this story so you can decide if you want to donate here.
I had a dream since I was a child to create video games. I am a working person, but money which I earn is really not enough to pay for programming courses or hiring someone to help me with my dream. Because of this I started to learn programming by myself. I was learning from YouTube and other sites on the Internet. It took me half a year to learn Java / Android language and I finally programmed my first video games. I published these games in Google Play (you can find it if you searh for “JummyDear Games”), but now I faced the major problem – I cannot get downloads / profit because this thing needs advertising. I faced the wall here, I did my best to learn programming by myself, I created the game and have no problem to do so again, but I cannot make any advertisements without money. I made some calculations, for minor advertising for couple of months it should take 2000 – 3000 Eur. Now I know this is not a cancer or other sad sickness situation, so I will surely understand if nobody cares about this request. But if you have some money to spare for wish donations, here I am, asking you kindly to support my dream here. I want people to see my games, I want to be able to sell something and make something of my life.
Thank you again for reading this, have a great day !
Thank you so much for taking the time to click our story. I don’t want to bore you so I will make this as brief as I can. My wife and I opened up a real estate company with all the money we had saved up, which wasn’t much.. about $15,000. We paid for the office space and got everything we need to start up but had no money for advertising. We went on to advertising on craiglist to get rentals and/or customers and received some phone calls. Unfortunately we have had no luck in getting customers. The customers we do have always end up not moving forward. We also tried bus bench ads and nothing at all!
We listen to Bob Proctor and also listen to Think and Grow rich and have applied this in our lives however there is nothing that has worked. I get paid fairly well but after paying our home bill we have nothing to cover our office costs. Our credit sucks and have tried getting small business loans and have been told that since my wife is a black female that they will have difficulty getting a loan because it’s a white male dominant world. We will not give up and will prove them wrong! We have asked our families but they cannot help. We will never give up until we are successful because we want to be able to help other small business minority owners that are struggling like us with a dream.
We will make a difference in this cruel world of business because we know how it feels to not be believed in.
Please believe in us and I vow to pay it forward by helping other small business owners get the help they need once we have a successful real estate company.
Please help us. We need $50,000 to pay back our debt, backed up rent for 5 months and have money to advertise. We appreciate and love all of you. Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you believe in us the way we do in ourselves.
Please I need $63,500 USD to save my business.
I have been running a company for 2 years now all by myself in Qatar, but things have never been tougher. I started alone because I couldn’t afford to hire any staff to work with me and this has affected the operation of the business in negative ways.
Here, a company owner must have a Qatari company sponsor to whom you pay certain amount of money every month and if you fail to do that over a period of time, he will shut down the company and blacklist your name. That is a serious situation because it’s part ofd the agreement.
Now, I need to act fast in order to save my business and be able to expand it. I want to hire staff so I will be able to bid for contracts, because here, if you work alone you won’t get good business.
WHY I NEED MONEY
The funds I am soliciting for will be utilized in areas of staffing, advertising, marketing, product development, office/studio rent, working capital, furnishing the office and the studio with necessary equipment.
The company specializes in Information Technology and Multimedia Services. The core competency and major focus lie in web design, web development, e-commerce system integration, search engine optimization, IT solutions, application development for various purposes, 3D/2D animation, graphics design, sound production, video production, digital content creation and management.
I have offered a number of services to some clients and they are very happy with what I have done so far, and now I want to take the company to a new level by hiring IT and multimedia professionals. I want to position it on a level that will attract good business contracts from clients that will include big companies and government institutions.
MY MARKET RESEARCH
I have already contacted many businesses including government institutions and 95% seem very interested in dealing with us once there’s a good team in place, and I am confident that we can deliver beyond expectation if we have provision for necessary funding to keep the business afloat.
Please help me save my business with any amount you can and I will forever be grateful. You can use the link below to help me:
Thank you very much.
I come to an Idea to create an app that let ppl to take any picture of their desired clothes. and it will generate 3D image that when people upload their picture, it can then overlap the clothes 3D-ly on the person Image. Hence people can know how doest the clothes look on him/ her.
I came out with this idea 3 years ago but due to lack of financial capabilities, It remained as an idea and all the draft is there..
I named it Fashiongenic and hopefully one day it can make it into android/ IPhone platform and become an app that can change the online fashion/merchandise industry.
It won’t just limited to clothes, but will go into further fashion like cap, headband, tie, watch etc.
I once managed to create the website of this but due to lack of financial abilities to sustain, unfortunately it has to be closed down.. I am 22 now and I really need donation to make this app become reality. .I will forever be grateful to all those that help me and if one day this app become an industry changing hit, I would like to personally thanks and meet you all who help me on this journey.
My expected amount to be able to make this app and pattern into success as a start up : £50,000
I don’t mind how much you donate. I would forever be grateful on this.
You can donate here. Million Thanks
I recently moved to Florida front Indiana for better opportunities. I am working on a book about the tragic loss of a family member and starting my own gift basket business. While I am a recent college grad everything has been a complete struggle being out here on faith and trusting that everything will be okay. Every little bit helps but I am overwhelmed and have even suffer from extreme anxiety and depression. My goal is for $10,000 to help with credit card debt and student loans so that I can really get things off the ground and help my family.
My name is Shani Nelson. I’m 28 years old and I’m from New Iberia, Louisiana. In these 28 years I’ve learned that life has a tendency to give us lemons, but it’s the experiences in the world we live in that determines how much sugar we’ll have to add to make our lives sweet again. I’ve had to stir about a good 7 pounds into mine so far due to abuse, being broken, lack of support, failures, and mistakes. I don’t say this for sympathy, but as a testimony of God’s grace and mercy. I still have the dreams in my heart that I had has child and I have kept a humble mentality. The winds didn’t sweep me away and the rocks that have been thrown at me didn’t leave me with scars.
I really don’t know how this works but I pray that you would appreciate my honesty. The past two years have been rougher than ever for me. I lost my car right at the end of my second to last semester of college. I don’t have the money to purchase another one at the moment so one semester of college has been hanging in the balance. I was a real estate agent for three years. Going into my fourth year I lost my real estate license. I didn’t make much money the previous year because of school and then the lack of transportation. Therefor, I wasn’t able to pay the fees that came up when it was time to renew. The amount was larger due to some new rules.
All the employers willing to hire me are out of my reach because I have no car. God had mercy on me and allowed a man to love me enough to want to marry me this past March. I was too depressed to handle all of this on my own. I have a 7 year old son and not being able to fully take care of him has taken a toll on me. Yes my husband works but his job has only been keeping us afloat. We can’t save and get ahead because of all the bills. Now he has to take care of me too. He knew this when he married me but I hate that I can’t help him. I don’t want him to resent me.
During all of this downtime, I haven’t been sulking. I’ve been creating in hopes that I would be able to find someone to help me move forward. The vision workbook that I created will help many people get there goals in order and produce results for them. Publishing the book will cost me $1022. I already know plenty people who are in need of this tool so your donation will not be in vain. Your help will put my family and I on the path to lasting prosperity. This will open up success for me and I pray that it puts me in position to one day be able to help people too.
I really appreciate anything you can do to help me build myself and my business up. Thank you.
