Right now we are going thru the worst time of our lives. Mentally I’ve been to the point I have thought about quitting nursing school and feeling like I don’t want to continue on. My son and I have been going through so much hell. March, I was wrongfully terminated from my job of 6 years. The job I have now pays me $4.00 less. My wages are being garnished for old student loans which is really putting me in a bind. The apt we stay in doesn’t have a stove or fridge so we have to eat out or grab nonperishable items to eat. A lot of times we have to do without because the money just ain’t there. My biggest issue now is that on September 15, 2017 the motor in a car I just got purchased on July 20, 2017 locked up. The car lot owner will not replace the car because of a 30 day warranty. I have had to struggle to get to work, to school, to the grocery store, to wash clothes because there is no public relations transportation where we live. I definitely can’t afford Uber. WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED. I’m so ashamed and embarrassed to be reaching out to strangers and telling my personal business. I have reached out to several people/organizations with no results. I’m a very proud person and used to taking care of things myself or doing without but the love for my son and my obligation to take care of him surpasses any feelings I have about asking for help. He is MY WHOLE WORLD and I owe him the necessities of life and I owe him a good life. My son is such a man and he says, “We’re gonna get thru this, Mama. Don’t cry ok.” It breaks my heart. I’ve been faced with situations like this before but never this bad. I’m SO ANGRY with God because he knows all I’m trying to do is make a better life for my family and He’s allowing all this. I’m not strong like Job. No one really understands exactly what I’m going through. Without a car I don’t know how we will make it. People get tired of you asking for rides. My school and my hospital clinical site is approximately 30 miles away, I’m struggling to get to both every week. I have one more year left in nursing school. Just one. I have worked so hard to get this far and I’m humbly asking for help to make it the rest of the way to provide for my son and to be able to pay forward what ever generosity is blessed upon me. My coworker suggested I go talk to the car dealer she purchased her car from. I met him. He showed me some cars and the seemed to be dependable. My coworker and her brother purchased cars from him with no complaints. The car I would like to purchase is $6500 but he doesn’t finance. If someone could please help me purchase this car. PLEASE.
I have limited income due to a disability. I currently survive off $1900 take home income per month. I live a minimalist lifestyle, however each week I am struggling to make ends meet. I am consistently left with $1 or $2 in my account waiting for payday to come just to make ends meet again. I get by and I survive but I do not have money for major expenses.
I recently borrowed $4500 from a friend to purchase a vehicle to get me back and forth to work in. I repay this loan $100 per month. I found out after purchasing the vehicle that it needed major repairs. I attempted to return the vehicle under state lemon laws but I missed my opportunity to do so by one day! So, I got stuck with a piece of junk in need of major repairs that I cannot afford. I don’t even think the vehicle is worth putting the amount of money in repairs it needs into it.
Without a vehicle I would lose more than half of my income as I live in a rural area and need transportation to work. I would ideally like to be able to receive donations to pay off the $4500 loan on this vehicle so I can start over from square one and try to find a more reliable vehicle.
I am unfamiliar with how this all works, but I am willing to discuss my situation in more detail and provide documents that support everything I have said. I have nothing to hide and just need help.
Your donations will be greatly appreciated and I look to help others in anyway I am able in return. Thank you for your consideration.
Hi! My name is Epiphany! I’m 18 I live in Fayetteville, NC. I am in a bit of a financial bind. My mother has just recently passed away in June and I had to get a job in order to pay for the utility, internet, and taxes for my home. I am a new hire Event Staff with Staff-1 Event Services Group. Basically my job is being an event representative. I give clients information on the event they are attending if they have any questions, direct clients to parking, and direct clients to proper seating areas. The reason why I need to get my car fixed is so I can have my own transportation to work because most of my work assignments are out of town that my job unfortunately doesn’t provide transportation to. My job only provides transportation to 1 venue and it’s to Duke football stadium. Other venues I am not available to attend to work due to lack of transportation are Cary, Greenville, Raleigh, Durham, Wilmington, and other surrounding areas not mentioned. I have been searching for loans, odd jobs, selling things, and asking family members for money and so far have had no luck. Please if you can help me this will be greatly appreciated and I will send a thank-you gift after I get back on my feet. I am in need of around $975 to get my car fixed all together. It needs a new motor (main thing I need to get the car fixed), oil change, new tires, and a bluetooth radio.

I took a leave from my job and after 3 months of never ending pain my insurance approved me for lower back surgery, My hopes were high and looking forward to a 100% out come after surgery. Nothing has been more disappointing after my surgery and recovering I was still having back pain not has bad as before surgery but pain more the same meaning I was not a 100% a lot of nerve damage well by this time I lost my job and no longer had health insurance . My doctor told me I might want to look into Disability being that I was limited on my activities so I did and still after two year jumping through hoops I am still waiting on the out come from my hearing . I am embarrassed and not comfortable to be asking for help but I have sold all that I could to get by the past 2 years and my children and family are not well off to help me . I need help to pay my vehicle insurance, Vehicle taxes and renewing tags to keep my vehicle on the road and my vehicle needs a oil change and two front tires to pass inspection which is due soon. I cant borrow the money as getting a loan because I cant work and have now way to pay on a loan. I try to help myself every way I can like I said selling things I can do without and when I have materials I like painting on wooden pallets and selling them to get by. I really don’t put much faith in excepting any stranger to want to help out someone they don’t know but I was lead here to make my peace and believe in hope . My past two years have been rough back surgery loss of employment and loss my best friend my Pom of 9 years.
May God Bless You
Please help me gift my bestfriend with a new car, he is financially struggling due to divorce, he has no home nothing. The only thing he had was his car, and now he doesn’t even have that because the transmission is done. He ended up losing his job because of this. He has almost no money what so ever. We are in are really early 20’s so this is really difficult. I really want to help him out with a vehicle so he can get back on his feet! Please help!
I’m a single mother and Veteran , I bought a vehicle little less than 6 months ago have had to repair multiple things on the vehicle, I have kept the communication open , informing the lenders of the problems, even being out of work due to this situation, so it didn’t help that i basically had to choose between repairs and getting to work , or making the payment and not being able to get to work! Loose loose situation especially when i primarily use my vehicle for my job , receiving mileage. I just need to be able to go to work while i still have a job this month of September has been very challenging because i have been out of work most of it . I just want to clear my name of this headache of a vehicle that i found out has had a history I was sold a car that isn’t worth what i’m paying for I have done my research and reported the company they simply say that it was my fault for not doing my research , which i take responsibility for but how does a business sell a car with corrosion underneath the vehicle because of the nature of the northern states and snow?! Also when i attempted to sell the vehicle to a better company , they pulled the Carfax and the vehicle had 9 other owners and a prior repossession on top of that!!! Omg I was so hurt because if i would have known I would have never ever purchased the vehicle even putting down a $1300 down-payment and traded in my 11 year old car , so i’m not one to run through vehicles! My current payments of $263.21 monthly due by the 5th aren’t helping me either car simply not worth it! I want out of the vehicle or to be able to purchase something to get back and forth to work and safe for my daughters . I currently owe$789.00+ repossession fees . I just need leave this financial lender alone and get my life back , i’m unable to pay being out of work and before that fixing items on the vehicle how do you have to replace multiple parts of a vehicle and only having it 5 months ? Also the vehicle still driving funny I believe that it’s so much more to the vehicle , now i have it on my shoulders ! Carfax needs to be seen for this matter !
I’m embarrassed to be doing this. Scratch that, extremely embarrassed to be doing this.
I’ve had my car for 7 years. I’ve taken good care of it and drive carefully. No loud music. No passive aggressive driving. No running through red lights. Etc. Unfortunately my perfect accident record was recently slashed when I was hit by an emergency vehicle. Another two “unfortunatelies,” my claim was denied by the comptroller’s office and I didn’t have collision insurance so my own company won’t cover it or really go after them. A bit of a dumb move on my part in hindsight but truthfully I just thought that I’d be good without it and I was for a realllllyyyy long time. Although there are contingency lawyers who can deal with the case, I really don’t want to drag this out in court only for my claim to be ultimately denied again or me to spend 3 months trying to get something like $700 after lawyer fees.
Thankfully the damage isn’t severe. You can see from the pic that the car is generally in good shape but it doesn’t drive as is as the control arm/mechanism got jammed in. I got some estimates and was able to find a shop that would fix it up for $2,000. Well $2043.74, but who’s counting? ;) I vetted the garage, talked to them. They’re good people and know that I don’t need perfection. I just need a smooth drive and for it to not to look so smacked up on that right side. Don’t care about paint or none of that.
Can anyone help me out? I really don’t want to let this go because 1) it’s of extreme sentimental value to me 2) if I’m unable to make my rent in the near future, which is highly possible at my current financial state, at least I’ll have a decent place to sleep and 3) I can find work as a delivery driver if need be. It’s been through a lot with me and I would be eternally grateful. paypal.me/sterot
P.S. I’ll definitely be getting collision insurance from now on. That’s for sure!
25 years ago, my parents and my uncle opened a bmw co-operation, all family members. In 2009 the company went bankrupt. The uncle told us that it would help us to open new companies in my wife’s name. The reason is could not be in my name because I have the same name as the previous company. We opened up the new company and worked together with my papa and my oncle. Dad left the company after one year The reason to old for work. I continued with my oncle . After a year we made a family meeting and my uncle told me to go home and with my salary, he would pay for the company tax. I accepted the proposal, but with the agreement to be my mother in the economy. all OK . After three months my father have cancer, my mother he left from the company to take care my father. After a while I asked the company to close down and settle the debts. He asked us a little time to sell the company together with the debts. This happens two, three times. Today the company owes 150.000 euro In the name of my wife, and I can not hunt my oncle legally, there is no my oncle name anywhere on any company paper! I’m in a bad economic situation AND I AM FROM GREECE please help me!

I was actually driving from place to place asking if businesses were hiring and dropping off my resume when someone ran a red light and T-boned me. Luckily, I came out of it ok but my car needs some serious fixing. The mechanic said it will probably cost around $500 to fix everything that needs to get fixed for it to work safely and properly. I have sold some of my belongs; gold jewelry, guitar, etc; and saved up $145 so far but it’s always a little uncertain if people will want to buy your stuff in the time-frame you need them to buy it and I don’t really have much else to sell to begin with. As a last resort I’ve searched online for websites like this in hopes my story could spur some sympathy, I guess. Ha Ha. Without my car, though, it makes it very difficult to go out and find a job and then have reliable transportation to get to that job when I get it. I know there is always the bus but I live in a city that is full of shady people and I get really nervous walking around town. There have been scary incidents in the past. I’m not just paranoid that something might happen because too many things have happened when I have walked around here.
Well, I just thought I would give this a shot. I’m trying to come up with anyway of making that money I can possibly conjure in my brain.
Thank you for listening to my story and I hope you have a great day!
I am a 21 year old female. I have anxiety and depression so it’s hard to try to keep a job for long. But I finally found one where the people and environment is good. The downfall though is that I’m only making $9:hr, making just over $400 every two weeks. I still live with my parents, still don’t have a vehicle, (don’t even have my license) so my mother drives me to work and places I need to go. It’s hard to save up the money when I have bills to pay such as gas, phone bill, food, etc. And I also have too big of a heart and have been helping out a coworker to stay in a hotel with her two little ones, helped two friends out and now they won’t pay me back. I believe in if you do good, good will come to you. I won’t lie, this job is good to me, my new friends are good to me, and my family is good to me. But there is only so much I can put on their shoulders. Driving me around like they are my personal uber is such a bad feeling. I hate having people do things for me but at this point I just need help because lways having to depend on someone while trying to be independent myself is making me feel so childish as I’m trying to adult. Luckily for me my father’s partner from work is selling his wife’s old Yukon for $4000 dollars but dropped the price to $2500 and I’m still struggling to get the money. I can’t ask him to hold it for much longer because he was already nice enough to drop the price so much for me. And when I get the vehicle, I can reapply to my old job (only getting $8.10:hr) as well, so I can be working both jobs to be able to afford the vehicle and look into getting an apartment. I just need a little jump start to get my life started. I’ve been feeling like such a failure looking at how well put together everyone is and I’m still trying to get my foot out the door. If you could please help me out that would mean so much, anything helps. https://www.paypal.me/SSetty
I was driving to work a little over a month ago in my Scion tC and heard a loud snap. My car cut off in the middle of the highway. I tried to start it again, and the battery and started came on, but not the engine. I almost knew it had to be my engine, but I decided not to panic. My stepfather looked at it and guessed it was the engine. A week later, I got an actual mechanic to look at it and it certainly was the engine. That was my favorite car to own.
I’ve been able to rent a car for a while through insurance and Enterprise, but my rental time is now up. I sold my car with a non-running engine and could unfortunately only get $300 for it.
I work twenty miles (25 minutes) from my job and can’t get there without a vehicle. I’m currently living with my mother (on unemployment), unemployed stepfather (very little unemployment), and disabled aunt (who gets very little in disability). The house can be foreclosed on at any time. All of them are in worse financial situations than I am and absolutely cannot help me at all financially.
I was very well on my way to saving up to move out of my family’s house (and closer to my job), but this is a huge financial (and emotional) setback.
I am asking for 4K in order to get a decent, somewhat long lasting vehicle so that I can continue to save, finally move out of the house, and get a place that’s closer to my job. If I reach 6K, however, I’ll will be able to move out on my own.
Thank you. Any little bit helps. :)
Hi, my name is David, I currently live with my wife and 17 month old.
i feel so very unproud of myself having to ask for help from complete strangers and yet find myself swollowing my pride to seek to opportunity that sonewhere and somehow there is a way to help rebuild our lives.
around 5 years ago we felt that we were doing fine, we managed to rent, go out and enjoy ourselves. We had a little bit of debt but it seemed manageable.
however this was not the case, we would end up using our wages and anything left would be put today’s the debt, unfortunately the payments we had left did not cover the interest, we fell into a terribleness midset up we can worry about it later and borrowing further funds to pay the original bills but just ended up creating more, as time went on we started to find things increasingly difficult with our outgoing being more than our income and even scrimping on everything we still missed bills, we would miss one and then the month later catch up but would miss a different one to pay for it, so on and so on.
we now have a beautiful baby daughter who is the love of our lives, I as a father feel so disappointed in myself that I am unable to be the father figure I always had hoped to be, not being able to afford to buy her new toys or clothes but instead relying on gifts or charity shops to provide for her.
we go without meals sometimes in order to make sure she still eats well, we always make sure of that.
we have a 15 year old car that we use to cart us to and from work daily which has started to pack up more than I am able to fix and currently fear what will happen when it dies in the near future and will be unable to afford a new one, our credit history is below very poor due to our past so cannot look to get finance as they simply will not allow it.
i come from a very small family and therefore cannot ask for any further aid from them as the have exhausted their ability to provide aid
im just so scared of all this money worry, I have tried so hard to keep my family’s head above water, yet feel that we are now very quickly sinking.
I just don’t know what else to do
Never in a million years would I imagine there would be a time that I would ask for help. Well that time has come as I desperately need help now. A little bit of back story. I was a divorced empty nester enjoying my life in Orlando, Florida. Not well off but I was able to provide for my needs as a Uber/Lyft driver.
Having spent a long time in the corporate world becoming self employed seemed to be the answer for my quest for freedom and independence. All was going well until my adult son and daughter divorced their respective spouses and had to move back home with kids in tow to boot.
Suddenly I was responsible for 6 people on one salary. My daughter’s ex moved back to his home country and did not provide child support and their home was foreclosed on. She was always a stay at home mom so you can see where this is going. My son worked for a contractor but the company lost their city contract and here we are.
Now for the heart of the matter, my car’s engine gave out. It also needs a mass air flow sensor and four new tires. This is my (our) only source of income at the moment and I need to get back on the road. This is not asking for a handout but for a helping hand. I have given the kids a time frame for leaving but right now I need to focus on getting back on track and finding a way to pay the rent, food, etc. One can only stretch a dollar so far and right now it is stretching to Timbuktu. I am asking for $3000 to help cover the cost of a rebuilt engine with the labor and the sensor.
If nothing else this post is very cathartic in the sense I am able to release some of my anxiety and frustration at this sudden downturn of events. Thank you all for listening and as it has been noted, “tough times never last but tough people do.” I sincerely hope that is the end result in my case.
Hello my name is Samantha Howard a single mother of 2 girls and 2 boys. Recently my job I had made changes to it there for it left me needing to find a new job witch I have but does not pay as much. I am also looking for a second job but the job I have now you need a vehicle to do. Witch I had till a week ago when it broke down on me during my route. It will need a new motor and i can not afford it. I can not afford to put it in the shop either. Since then I have talked to every car lot online and in person I could find but I can’t get approved for a loan or financing because of my credit and I can’t make payments over $200 a month and I can’t give a down payment because I make just enough to pay my bills. I have asked everyone I know for help but no one can. The Kids father will not pay his child support so I have no help from him. I can’t get my kids to school or doctor appointments now and I don’t know what to do. I have tried everything possible to get a car and keep getting denied. I really need a car to take care of my family. I hate to have to ask for help. If anyone could please help me get a vehicle or has a vehicle they will let me buy from them making small payments would really help. Also if anyone knows wgere i might be able to get help with this could you please let me know. I’m really having a hard time right now and don’t know what to do anymore. Thanks so much.paypal.me/Kricket86

Hello, my name is Al and I’m a professional wrestler. Part of my profession, in order to be seen by those who offer contracts, is travel. It is an absolute necessity. I was raised in Greensboro, NC and my travels took me to Atlanta where I met my Moon. She’s a wrestler as well, and we quickly fell in love. Fast forward, I decide to move to Atlanta and get her out of a dismal living condition she was stuck in. In doing so, I gave up a full-time job, gym clients, and bought a vehicle because mine wasn’t built for a 7 and a half hour drive. It’s been a struggle ever since, haven’t rebounded as quickly as I’d like. Been here for over a year, never late on rent and making payments on time. I currently work for an amazon fulfillment center as well as taking on a few clients to train; as well as wrestling as often as possible, but things have been difficult as of late. She recently lost her job, which puts the weight on me. I don’t mind being her Atlas and holding the proverbial sky upon my shoulders, but the weight is becoming too much to bear. We currently have one vehicle that we share, and use for our wrestling travels. It has begun to give us issue so we only use it around the city, and me getting to work, and usually would rent a car for long distance travels. With her losing her job and me taking on the payments that has lead to a decision. I gave up my wrestling long-term in order for her to be able to have a career. I can’t really afford to travel anymore and miss work, so she piles in a car with other female wrestlers to go to shows and I work. The money she makes from these shows help, but not as much when one calculates her traveling expenses. She moved from Wailuku, HI to ATL in order to pursue wrestling training. She has lived in Hawaii her entire life, and thus has no family on the mainland. My father passed 4 years and 3 months ago, with my Mother passing away in April. So neither of us have family around. Which leads me to my request of $632. That amount would assist me in getting our car repaired so I can eventually travel again for wrestling. I’ve never done a gofundme or other crowd-funding things before, was way too proud to ask for help. Things have become overwhelming. I don’t want to give up on our dreams, as they are the sole reason we are here. I pray that someone out there can hear my plea. She is my moon, and the only reason the tides of my heart are moved so…
My Girlfriend and I are expecting our first baby boy sometime in early October, We used to own a Mitsubishi Magna that we got on a loan for $5000 ( ended up being around $8000ish after paying rates etc ). Litterally 2 weeks before we had finished paying off the loan, my partner was on her way home ( This was before she was pregnant ) and a drunk driver hit her.. She did her best to avoid the accident but only got far enough for him to hit the back right ( Driver Side ) wheel, he drove off and another driver on the road chased him to get his details.
The car was totaled, We only got $4000 back for the car and proceded to go looking for another similar car ( We liked that make and model ), we found one for about $3700, bought it and been happy ever since ( About 6-7months ago ).
Just Yesterday, 29th/06/2017 the car started to make a ticking noise, We knew what it was straight away as our very first car had this same noise and it was the timing belt, in the end that car snapped it and we needed a new car ( it wasn’t worth fixing ).
We’ve taken it to a mechanic to have a quick quote and just make sure it’s the problem we thought it was, they agreed that it was what we thought. Got the quote and they said between $1300-$1500, obviously we don’t have the money just laying around ( Both in and out of work and study, me myself couldn’t find work for about 4 years and so i’ve been doing studies ).
We have no way to afford to pay this in a lump sum, maybe on a payment plan we could, but no one does payment plans for car repairs here, it’s depressing. I litterally just decided to go back and finish a course i dropped out of to try and find work last year, so i’ve been in the middle of setting it all up for mid year and the same day the issue started, i got a phone call for a job interview ( after the car started making noise, but before we took it to a mechanic ).
GREAT, i’ll be able to make some money and get this repair done, but no, can’t drive the car because if the belt snaps, it will destroy the engine making the repair to the damages it causes 5 times more expensive. Can’t get to the new job ( which i start on monday btw 3/7/2017 ) because i can’t drive the car and risk it causing more damage. Can’t make the money to fix the car, and get get a loan because i’ve not even started working yet.
We are litterally by ourself, all we have had is each other and we have no one to fall back on, it’s been like this for a long time, we finally ( me especially ) thought i was catching a break with going back to study and now a job shows up, but ofcourse with everything good, something bad has to cancel it out… the car.
With no one to fall back on and depend/rely on for help, we are out of options. I don’t doubt that we won’t get any help here, but i’m not expecting it, it’s a last resort/effort to try and get some sort of help fighting back.
Would absolutely be amazed and in awe of anyone who is actually willing to help a stranger, and appreciate it beyond belief, all 3 of us ( My girlfriend, myself and our soon to be born boy… if we can get to the hospital when she gives birth…lol ).
Definitely going to pay it foward when i can start making some decent money, regardless of what happens here.
Asking for around $1500 total to get the major repair done, we also need a major service which is $400ish but that can wait as the major repair is priority.
A little bit of background
I recently moved across the country to get a new start on life, I was so down and depressed I needed a drastic change, which it’s worked and I met the most amazing person in my life who picked me back up and basically saved my life, the saddest part was leaving my dog with people I thought I could trust.
Before I had a chance to get my feet under me I was getting phone calls about my dog being abused and starved, what little money I had saved I used to get my dog to me, nearly $1000 to get her here, and again for the vet bills, with nothing left, no home to call my own and a dog, I met the person I’d happily spend the rest of my life with, she gave me a place to live and be happy, I’ve managed to get a job and pay off some debt I had, but it’s a traineeship which Pays like it’s meant for 14 year olds living out of their parents house not someone trying to live a life.
Now the reason for all of this.
Her family has weekly gathering for dinner which is nice, not really having the family thing before, and on her way there for the weeks dinner, some idiot driver decided to cross the and started to pull out in front of her car right as we got to the turn, she had no time to react and they collided, both cars have been written off, because of our laws she had to pay a fine for the collision and the insurance doesn’t cover any of the damage that was caused so she owes about $1400 for that to start, currently she is waiting for the next job to start which doesn’t until august, but she needs a car to get to and from work. this job she is going to start soon is working with guide dogs on a training facility, it’s basically her dream job.
For everything she has done for me I want to buy her a car, doesn’t have to be fancy or luxurious, I just want to do for her what she has done for me, only I don’t have enough to get her a car on my own, it would mean the world to me for any help I get from coming here.
thank you for taking the time to read this.
Last year I moved and started my life over after leaving an abusive relationship. I was gradually getting my life together, I had a good job, my car was running well and I was able to save money to get my own apartment. Unfortunately I was let go from my job 7 months ago and since then I haven’t found a job paying what I used to make. I went through all of my savings and although I do work full time most of my check goes to child support which I have no problem with but I am left living off of $130-$150 a week. I pay $75 a week for rent living with a family member so when I have to pay for things like my car insurance, cell phone or everyday things that my kids or I need I am left with almost nothing. Recently my car broke down and that was a big hit as I am relying on friends to get around. I have my bachelors degree and there are jobs I would like to pursue but I need a car as these jobs require me to travel out of my immediate area. I am not a selfish person and I live a simple life not splurging on things or stuff I do not need, i make sure my children have what they need and are happy. If I was able to buy a reliable car it would be a game changer for me and give me the break I need so I can get a better paying job and get my life back on track. I looked at cars in my area and with just $5000 I could get a good vehicle but In my current situation $5000 might as well be a million. I am a proud person but even I realize that sometimes we all need help.

Hello Helping Soul!
I’m glad you are reading this, maybe you’ll be the solution to my problems! :)
You won’t read tearshredding, sob-inducing story of my really sad life. I’ve problems like we all do, but I’m not going to tire you with the details that is not related to this request. I hope you find some sympathy, and sorry for grammar mistakes you may encounter.
I’m a 24 years old university student in eastern europe, living separately from my family. I work besides, to sustain myself, to have money to buy groceries, etc. I’m not getting much financial help, because my parents can’t afford it.
I go home once in a while, to see them. For this, I bought a car. A 24 years old one. It wasn’t a bad business, it’s starts and moves from A to B. On the other hand, it has flaws because of the age. Oil leaking, break power loss, bad tires, rusting bodywork. I can’t / don’t want to buy an other car, I want to make, repair, upgrade this one to a better condition, and make it long lasting. For the trips to my parents, or any other needs.
I’m good with the tools, I look at myself as a self educated, hobby car mechanic. And I really LOVE cars. I want to buy spare parts, paint, liquids and such, to make it better and nice. I don’t need thousands of $, any “spare coins” would make a big difference.
I made some research, and going to write down some (approximate) prices:
Breaks: ~180$ (all 4)
Head gasket + replacement: ~350$ (ouch…)
Filters and oils (engine, transmission, brake, powersteer): ~90$

Hi. My name is Gareth, I am a father of 5 (three of my own and two step children through my new partner) children. I am currently in an IVA which was a result of my marriage breakdown two years ago. I bought a car on finance last year through necessity for work school runs etc. as I done the right thing and didn’t want to leave the mother of my children without a car when we divorced. Unfortunately the car has now started to fail on me and the costs of repair are huge. I need to purchase a more reliable car but the interest rates I have been given on car finance are simply out of my budget. most companies want around 49% interest on the finance they are willing to give which is unrealistic to my finances. On top of that I obviously still have to pay the finance on the car that is dying on me and I will not achieve the amount I owe through sale of it. I hate admitting i’m in need of help but I am. I know that my predicament is through no fault of anyone else but mine. I would even look at paying someone back if they could give me a loan of manageable amounts each month but that would mean it would be for little profit to the lender. I need to get a reliable car from a reliable dealer that doesn’t cost the earth. I have found cars in the £3000-£4000 range but low and behold due to age and mileage restriction set by the few finance companies that would finance me I wouldn’t be permitted to by anything for less than £4000. Without a car it makes getting to and from work and including school runs virtually impossible. My new partner and I both work but we are struggling to make things work with one car due to her shifts and my hours of work. I am simply trying to rebuild my life after having to make the hardest decision financially I have ever had to when opting to go through an IVA. Believe me, I have explored all avenues to sort this but would appreciate some help to get me moving again. It feels like they make it as hard as possible for you to get back on your feet to try punish you for hitting a low point in your life and I just feel like I am due at least a small bit of luck.
Thank you in advance for reading this whether or not you decide to donate.
I am just going through a really rough time right now. I have an 18 month old son, another on the way. I have been diagnosed with severe migraines and Lupus. I’m a disabled American Veteran from the U.S. Army, and I’ve fought so hard to keep my life going. I’ve worked since I was 16 years old, always a full-time job, working hard, paying my taxes, doing everything right. And still, this came to be a part of my life. I’m not on medication yet, most meds are dangerous for pregnancy.
I’m only working part-time at home now to take care of my son, save money, and keep my flares down.
My car broke down 3 weeks ago, it’s a 1500 dollar repair AND I still owe 4200 on it. I left it in Reno because my stepdad I was living with is a violent alcoholic and I couldn’t be around him anymore.
Everything in my life has turned upside down. I considered suicide. I’m too sick to work 50 hour weeks now. I need help so bad and I feel like because of my illness, I’m not a good enough mom because I can’t work like I used to anymore.
I just really need help getting things taken care of so I can get back up for my children. Anything helps! Thank you so much.
Hi! my name is Francis, I’m a young Aboriginal man living a remote part of Cape York on my traditional homelands. I currently work has a Aboriginal Ranger looking after my traditional lands. For the past 3 years, I have save enough money to purchase a vehicle to get me around and also to provide a safe and reliable means of transportation. I currently living 4 hours away from medical help and 8 hours away from the nearest major center in North Queensland (Cairns) and knowing i had a reliable vehicle available is important.
I found a vehicle in Townsville, and purchased it, my father drove it the 1200 km from Townsville to home, during the last 50 km the engine started to over heat. Contact was made with the car dealer and they ask if we could get the vehicle back down to them. It was going to cost $6500-00 to get a tow truck to drive from Cairns to Home and back to Townsville. I couldn’t afford this. I was able to save enough to ask a mobile mechanic to inspect the vehicle, we thought it was the water pump, the mechanic fitted a new one. Problem was not fixed. After long draw out discussion with the car dealership, it was agreed that if we could get the vehicle to a garage on the Atherton Tablelands. They would pay for this to be tested and they would pay for parts to fix the vehicle . After testing it was revealed there was a crank in the engine block. A new engine was needed. The car dealer agreed to pay for the parts and I would have to pay for the labour and transportation of the vehicle to the garage.
Now, the final 350 km to my home is dirt road, and getting a tow truck out on this was going to cost a lot of money, we were able to get it on the back of a truck heading south to were the bitumen starts, my father was able to borrow a Ute and hire a car trailer to transport it to the garage. To do this trip it would take him 24 hrs.
OK, the vehicle got to the garage, inspected and yes the engine block was damaged. The dealer has kept his side of your arrangements, and I currently have a bill for $2666.00. One of the hardship of living in remote parts of Australia, the cost of living is very high, and it take great sacrifices to be able to save. given this it would take me quiet awhile to save these needed funds. My other concern living in a remote area, and if the need every arise that help is need quickly, I would be able to assist in a vehicle that I know get myself and other out of trouble.
This is hard for me to do but i dont know what else to do. Im loosing everything. I’m scared for what is or could happen. I’m desperate now. I have run put of options. I’ve tried personal loans and help from family and even friends. That’s pushing the friendship believe me.
Centrelink have stopped my DSP and now on Newstart saying im capable of 8-14hrs a week. That dropped my income by almost $350 A fortnight. I have put a lot of pressure on mate dear friend Nicole and its causing so much heartache.
My story starts back in May 2006. Working, for 20years, in a factory as a canvas machinist, and living it may I say, and had a fall. This was the start of nothing being the same again. I had done some serious damage to my back and was seeing a specialist and trying to avoid surgery. Unfortunately nothing was successful and August i went under the knifeand surgery was done. It was a slow and painful recovery. Nearly 4 weeks in hospital. This did not help my depression and anxiety at all. In fact made it worse. With hydrotherapy and walking frame and crutches to help me walk again and get around. And my mental health dropped low. I am so lucky to have my dear friend Nicole by my side and still is, and now my career, who came to hospital every day and cared for me when out of hospital and still to this day.
ThinThings didnt look good but a few years, well 2008-9 I tried to go back to work. Not the same but still a machinist. I went through a disability agency that help me in all ways to make comfortable as possible and had a machinist job. This didnt last long unfortunately because my depression and anxiety started to take me over. I couldn’t get up to get myself to work and end up loosing my job. Being told if they knew i suffered depression, they would never have employed me. The pain in my back and leg got worse. I have suffered depression anxiety for 25 years. Surgery was not a good time for me being stuck in hospital and pain.i got to a point of not being able to leave the house and panic attacks for 7ish years. Worse time let me tell you. I’m getting help and I’m slowly improving.
Nicole is my career and has veen for 6 years. She is an angel. Helps me when my back is so bad i cant get out of bed. Do t know where I’d be if she wasnt around. Probably on the streets.
With loosing my job to extreme anxiety, I was advised to apply for disability.This was a process and a half. Jumping through hops and took us just before court. Finally after 12 months and the support of Nicole, I was granted DSP for my depression/anxiety and spinal damage. Nearly 6 years later they call me in for review, spoke to me me 30 pdd minutes and decided my able to work 8-14hours a week. Just by chatting with me. Strange i cant sit or stand for long period of time without chronic pain. I avoid things that cause me pain daily. Alot of things Nicole has to do. I worked 20years as a canvas machinist and lived it. I know nothing else. Id live to study but cant sit long enough for even that.
Now to bring you up to date, I live with Nicole and her 2 special need children, boys, 8 and13. I have been around since they were born. Im like a second mum to them. Nicole and i have been friends for 20 odd years. We connect. We are now really struggling since been taken off DSP, and still fighting it too. We are sinking in debt, bills and bad luck. My car is out of rego and now a blown head gasket so basicly off the road. Rego $421.45 and repairs $1500-2500 depending on out come. It’s a holden frontera and parts are ridiculous and car is only worth $3700 when in good order. We have had to rely on Nicoles car which is now falling apart. Doirs wont lock and shockies are shot. We cant win grrr. So soon no way to get 13 year old boy to school. 2nd boy is home schooled do to alot of issues we are try to sort. A tutor would be a great help but cant find out how too when cash is low. How much worse can it get.
Well hold on.
We also have bills pilling up badly. Just today Senergy sent us bill for $1003.20 along with a disconnection warning and next bill do. We have a plan in place but the bills keep coming. Shire rates of $898.34 due. Gas, phone and water too. All of which we are loosing the battle to get under control. And then try and put food on the table for kids that are so fussy and only eat certain foods. They are both medicated day and night. They are a handful but i live them ❤.
Nicole hasnt been well for they past 2 months and looking like chrone’s disease. Waiting on diagnosis. And also suffering teeth trouble. Poor bugger cant win. I doung my best to keep house in order while she laid up but with back pain you can only imagine the struggly i have.
Fighting disability is taking its toll on me. Drepession getting me down again. I dont know how to fight them. Its putting a big strain on household and friendship. We need a break. A guardian angel.
We have bothed tried personal loans and the sort and knocked back every turn. Its frustrating. Dont know where to turn. Nothing to sell. I need my own car to get around and improve my confidence and keep getting better. I dont go far from home but my phsyc once a fortnight. I need car with a liitle hight and not to low to ground because of my back. I want my freedom back.
I have now resort to trying to put my story out there and hope someone could help me please. I’ve always stoid on my own two feet but feel i have no other choice and nothing to loose.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I do hope someone could help me/us.
Hello My name is Christopher I am a single Parent working 40+ hours a week and I live pay check to pay check to cover my rent and bills. I have a 15 year old son named Nicholas who is on his way to be a JR in high school. unfortunately two weeks ago the transmission on my Ford Freestar started making a noise, and after talking to a repair shop the repair shop told me that the transmission is going out. and it will cost me will up to $2,100.00 to change out due to changing the transmission requires the engine to be dropped as well. It is a van with only 125k in miles and has been a really good van up till now.
I have talked to my family and they are unable to help me. I have looked at payday loans and loans from the bank, but my credit is not the best and I have been turned down by the bank and the payday loans want from 500.00 to 700.00 more then the loan is worth which I can not afford.
I have a friend that helps get me to work a couple days a week, but outside of that i have to drive the van and over the last two weeks it has progressively gotten worse. I can not afford to be out of a car and out of work and truly need assistance in getting the transmission changed as so I can maintain working and supporting my son. I have never asked for help in the past and it has been a pride swallowing experience to have to do it now. I would even look it as a loan and repay the money over time. I just need a bit of help, not a hand out.
Hi i’m 19 turning 20 soon, I am a female and i’ve lived with my parents my whole life. I finally just got my license and now I don’t just want a car i need one so I can move out eventually because living where I do is honestly hell. I know this isn’t the ultimate sob story but i’m being completely honest and not lying at all like im sure some people on here do just to get money. My mom verbally abuses me everyday along with the rest of my family and i’ve also been hit multiple times and had to call the police. My mom will find every single flaw in me and point it out and make me feel worthless.. telling me how stupid i am, how i dress like a slut, how i’ve gotten fat, how i’m going no where in life. It’s an everyday thing and it’s taking a huge toll on me and i can’t even explain the extent of how bad it is for me living here. I just need to get away from it all for the sake of my mental health. I also have a job so it’s not like i’m not trying or am just lazy, I just am very close to having enough for a car but I feel like this would help me a lot and allow me to get a car quicker. I understand this isn’t as severe as some people who need money but i’m genuinely a good person who only cares for others and will always put others before me, and I don’t deserve to be treated the way that I do from my family, and I know i’ll be 100% happier when I can be independent.
Hi there, I’m B and I have a spot of bother, I will first give a bit of my background. I’m not well 2004 injured by carbon monoxide poisoning leaving g me damaged central nervous system causing mental problems, mainly severe episodes of depression. After eight years sitting on my backside feeling sorry for myself I managed to pull myself together to find out I have oesophageal cancer. Not a sob story, true. But that aside pled myself together and made a decision to try harder than ever before to do right for my wife and children. I borrowed some money and bought a second hand van for £800 and have started to get things back in order catching up on debts bringing everything back into order. You know what’s coming, you got it, my van broke down, it’s OK I very been doing this a few month now managed to save up £100 just enough to replace the broken auxiliary belt. Great back to work, self emloyed courier 0.75p per parcel max. Unfortunately not the case the correct tension on the auxiliary belt has caused a leaking crankshaft seal, and a leaking power steering pump, so no work yet. Problem is if I can’t attend work to fulfil my contract my contract will be cancelled. So my request is please can someone help, I will return the favour in some form or manner. My choices are £200 will get me the parts and tools to attempt the job myself, £600 would get me the parts, albeit a secondhand power steering pump, and a mechanic £2500 would get me a new van. Or if there is anyone who could fit the parts for free, I would try really hard to borrow the money for the parts. If I can’t do this soon my family will be living in poverty so I do sincerely beg for any help financially or physically. Thanks for reading
We are a family of 5, my husband and I plus our 3 young children.Our car broke down a few weeks before Christmas and we still can’t afford to get it repaired.It needs a computer, which will cost about $1000.00 to fix at the garage. I am unable to work at this time because I have emphysema/copd among other medical problems.I care for our 3 kids while my husband maintains the only income.He also pays child support for his 17yr old son. My husband has been getting rides to work with his coworkers since it broke down. He works a half hour away from home.His coworkers who pick him up are habitually late. His Manager has informed him that anyone who continues to be late will lose there job.We live paycheck to paycheck and we have no money saved.We barely have food in our refrigerator at times. They recently reduced my husbands hours down to 30hrs when he was getting 45hrs. There is no public transportation available where I live that goes by his job. Because of his reduction in hrs at work we have been late and short on rent a few times. My husband has to ride his bicycle 1 hour to and from the supermarket to get groceries sometimes 2-3 times a day since he is limited how much he can fit on the bike. We need help getting our car repaired so desperately. My husband is in danger of losing his job and if that happens we will end up losing our home too. I pray everyday for strength. I am scared to death my babies will end up in a homeless shelter. I would be so grateful for any help. I believe when you are kind and help those in need it will eventually come back to you.Thank you.
Hello guys, my name is Alex and i live in Germany. I never tried to ask on the internet for money and always found my way out of troubles but this time I am so grateful that a website like this exists.
The reason I am writing this is cause I need help BADLY to repair my car. I crashed 1 week ago, I guess my stupidity underestimated the rain and my summer tires couldn’t get the traction on the road and i crashed into a tree..
Now, my 2003 Honda Civic is not worth much but I really need this car, especially to get to my workplace, which is 8 km away. My only options are to sell it as it is (highest offer was 300€..) or to fix it since buying new car is out of reach for me at the moment. I already invested the money I have to buy some parts but I will need 1200€ more, since I have to replace pretty much the whole frontal area of the car except the engine and transmission, both of whom are thankfully intact. This accident really came in the worst moment ever because I was struggling financially for a long time and finally this year I was able to sleep well at night because I managed to overcome my financial struggles, then this accident happened..
I would ask for money from Family but I live on my own since I ran from home 3 years ago because my parents were abusing alcohol and I couldn’t live like that anymore, so I’m on my own. I don’t know what it takes to help some stranger on the internet but I would be very grateful if someone would be willing to help me….It would really mean a lot to me to get this car fixed
Mike and Sandy need your help! The year 2016 was devastating for my best friend, Sandy, and I. It continues into 2017. We are both in our 50’s and are now forced to walk nearly everywhere we need to go since our vehicles have gone to the scrap yard, worn-out and not worth the very high cost of repairing them.
We have been best friends and roommates for 12 years and have always had transportation. We each had our own cars to get us to work, grocery store or anywhere necessary to live our lives and we were doing reasonably well. I had a decent job for 10 years driving a shuttle bus at the Kansas City International Airport. Unfortunately, because of a previous injury, I had to leave the job. Back in 1997 I was involved in an unusual accident, being struck by a heavy piece of scrap metal, a ball of metal actually, weighing about 10 pounds which came off of a scrap metal truck and went through my windshield, striking me in the left shoulder. The piece of metal was propelled going more than 60 miles an hour when it hit me. At the time of the accident my doctor told me I would probably develop severe arthritis as I grew older. He was absolutely correct. I was 33 at the time of the accident. Fast forward to now, this is what led me to having to leave my job at the airport. I could no longer tote luggage weighing 50 pounds or more, a requirement of the job. The pain became excruciating and I had no choice but to find some other type of work. I left my job on January 1, 2016.
On January 10, 2016 my car had a major breakdown. The estimate to fix it was $1800. The car, a 1985 Chrysler Fifth Avenue, had 260,000 miles and needed other work as well. She just wasn’t worth putting $1800 into. So here I was unemployed, living on what little was in my 401K for a few months in order to heal so I could find a new job and no money to buy another car. Without that car I soon discovered that employers won’t hire you in Kansas City. They require you have reliable transportation. We have a bus system, however, it is quite ridiculous only running during the week and from 6AM to 6PM. The bus system is also extremely limiting in access, especially in Johnson County where I live, making many areas unreachable. Taking a bus does not meet an employer’s requirement of reliable transportation.
Sandy’s car, a 2005 Dodge Stratus, had some major problems develop after throwing the timing belt just a couple of years after she bought it. She bought it used from an individual so no warranty for repairs. The mechanics couldn’t figure out the problem which had something to do with the camshaft and camshaft regulator. She could only drive it without going over 3,000 rpm or it would buck. Consequently, no passing gear to take it on the highway. The car finally stopped running in the Spring of 2016 altogether and was parked in the parking lot outside of our apartment. One night some thieves tried to take the car, breaking into a window and destroying the steering column. The only reason they didn’t get the car was because it was already broke down. Because of our financial situation and the fact the car was not running at that time we had dropped the insurance. Nothing left to do but scrap her car as well.
So, you see, we have a big problem. Without a car in Kansas City there is no way of getting a decent full-time job. Currently, Sandy and I both have part-time jobs within walking distance of our home. We are struggling just to pay the rent and feed ourselves. We are not looking to get fancy cars. The amount of $8000 we are requesting would allow us to purchase 2 older reliable vehicles and pay for tags and insurance to get us going. I have always had older vehicles and feel confident in doing minor repairs and maintenance myself. Just something to get us from point A to point B so Sandy and I can find decent full-time jobs. We would be forever grateful for any help you can provide for us to get our lives back!
Thank you for reading our story. Please, help us to be able to stop surviving and start living once more.
Mike and Sandy
So here is my story. My name is Jeff and I’ve fallen on hard times for several years now. I need my transmission rebuilt in my truck. I am currently working but am only making enough to keep my head above water. Without my truck I miss out on a lot of side work this time of the year. I’ve always done odd side jobs like mulching,yard cleaning and hauling. Without my truck this is impossible. The truck looks and is otherwise in great shape. It is 20 years old but only has 120,000 miles on it. It’s a diesel so it has a long way to go. There was a problem with these transmissions from the factory as I have found on the internet. To fix and correct I’ve gotten prices from 3700$-5000$. To me it might as well be a million. I am 47 years old and have never had to ask for help before. My back is against the wall. It is very humbling to have to ask for money. Our house air conditioning broke at the end of last season and I have just had that fixed with all savings. It had to be done as my 71 year old mother lives with me and she needs it with her breathing problems. Without the use of my truck I will not be able to work extra to save money for the next problem. Our house is going to need a roof so I don’t want to miss out on all the spring work that will be coming. I will need the truck to do this as well but it will still be at least two years before I can save that. As you may b able to tell I can not get much done without my truck. It’s really the backbone to my ability to earn extra money to do the things I need done. I have already tried a personal loan but can not get the approval. I have no other means available to me at this time. I never thought I would have to beg for money. Especially at this point in my life. I want to get the transmission rebuilt at a local shop. There are two shops I have decided on and the funds can go directly to them if that is possible. I really don’t know how this works. I hope there is someone who can find it in there heart to help me out with this issue
I drive for a living, so not having a car means not being able to work. I have been working for the same company for the past three and a half years, and I have greatly enjoyed my job. Due to bills though, it’s been very hard to save money. When I do manage to save something up, something happens which eats up what I had saved. Now because I haven’t been able to work this week, I’m going to fall behind on my bills once again.
I have been having problems with the transmission in my car for the past month. I just got caught up on my bills, and was hoping my car would have lasted through this month. I would have been able to do something if it had. Unfortunately I wasn’t that lucky, and on the 27th of January the transmission broke. I can’t get any loans due to late payments while I was trying to catch up on my bills. I can’t get rid of the car because I still owe way to much. I tried talking to some dealers who self finance cars, thinking if I could get one of those I’d just tell my current finance company to take the car, and take the hit on my credit. My credit would have gone down the drain even more, but at least I would have been able to work. No dealer was willing to help me out with nothing down unfortunately. I’m trying to get transferred to working inside for the company I work for, but no telling how long it will take for them to find me a position.
All I want is my car fixed, so I can return to work. I love my job, and don’t want to lose it because I don’t have a car. The shop I talked to said it would cost anywhere from 1500-2500 to rebuild the transmission. They do have a payment plan though, but they require at least half of the total cost, with the other half being payed monthly over the course of 3 months. I’d be able to do that, if I had the half to put down.
Vehicle repair: 1500-2500
Other bills I need to do my job
Car payment: 232
I am a 46 yr old male.
All my life, I was bounced around. Everyone told I couldn’t do
something, I would do it. I met every challenge by ‘working.’
Eventually I involved myself in others life cause I thought I had no problems. lol This led to a couple relationships. I ended up losing the gift God had sent me, my daughters. I thought, alright, I will just work thru it right? Not the case. Work doesn’t solve all issues. I learned.
Anyways, I felt I was given an opportunity to heal and get back to me,
the person without issues. I met a new woman, a wonderful woman,
who choose to love me, even though I had become a ‘loser’.
She has been kind, and her family has been kind to me.
I managed to acquire a used truck to get myself into a handyman business. Hasn’t worked out cause everything I ever made went to repairs. I couldn’t keep up.
My last two years I have had 0 income. I been given firewood even.
My ‘wife’ works for min wage. She is amazing person. There are no professional jobs for her after layed off from her previous job 17 years.
I am very responsible with money and never waste it.
But after 4 years now, I just have nothing left.
My spirit seems broken even worse than my truck.
My wife bought a small cottage, well below trending home prices.
Her job can pay mortgage and buy the dog food for hers and my dog.
I priced out options for a vehicle and found even buying a another used won’t help.
My wife stays in town with family cause I can’t even get around to get any work at all to even have gas money.
My truck needs an exhaust from headers back.
Also some rear seals.
I don’t even know why I even considered to beg.
I am alone by myself out here all winter with just dogs, middle nowhere land. I miss my wife so much.
I don’t have anything to sell except my means to a living, a few tools.
My wife doesn’t drive due to a seizure before I met her.
I am caught between rock and hard place as I don’t have family anymore.
I need to get my truck back on road so I can take a job, literally any job someone can pay me for.
Being a handyman never really panned out as half time I didn’t get payed. People have become such scammers these days.
I can’t deal with that. I just need a boss who needs someone to work and they can deal with those things.
Anyways, if I could get a loan, which I can’t.
I have bad credit history since age 16 when I went out on my own and got burned transferring a phone to me.
I have criminal record also from small town nonsense which makes hard to get full time work these days. Wish I had listened to mom in the day.
The only thing I live for now is the love my wife gives, but I am letting her down large. I want to move, but her family is here and this cottage is on her when I promised to help her in the first place.
If I could get a loan, I would ask for $5000, and that would only maybe get me on my feet.
It cost 20 dollars just to drive anywhere, and that’s not far.
I wish I had a mentor, a wing to shield me, but this site is for begging.
Thanks for listening
My name is Steven am a right sided paropolligic , am in a wheelchair the power wheelchair I had was stolen from me along with every single thing I owned . The vehicle I had I’d just purchased in June of 2015, in May 2015 is when my new power wheelchair was gotten . It cost $600.00 a month for 12 months . Me and my fiancée had her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend approach us needing a place to live, because they’d been evicted . In the meanwhile they told us the three grandchildren had Ben turned over to child protective services and the person she’d written a safety plan with was mistreating them we agreed to get temporary custody of the grandchildren which we done right away . Here we were me, my fiancée, three grandchildren two other adult’s in a one bedroom . My fiancée daughter’s boyfriend claimed he had a job come to find out he didn’t have a job had no intentions of getting nor finding employment . Me and my fiancée wound up being evicted from our now crowded one bedroom apartment had to find a larger apartment for us and the three grandchildren at the same time explaining the daughter and boyfriend had a o find a place of there own . So we find and move in to a larger apartment having the other two adult’s help us move in , all was fine until once again we permitted them to move in also . Explaining they needed to help pay the bill’s and we wasn’t financially capable of supporting ourselves them and the grandchildren . Of course those two agreeing to the rule’s laid fourth . One day the daughter gets upset with her mother because she was tired of handing her money to buy food, household items, hygiene item’s just not buying or going by the list’s she’d been given . Her daughter decided to take her anger out on me put sugar in my gas tank, had her boyfriend knock a hole in the oil pan of my car . That caused the engine to blow , to repair my car would’ve cost $2500.00 of which I did not have that put me totally depending on my wheelchair to do everything . Such as grocery shopping, going to the pharmacy, running normal errands doctor visit’s everything I had to do in my wheelchair rain or shine, temps was high as 114° . They stole my wallet using my credit card, my bank card even my lone star card, my fiancée gave her daughter $200.00 so she could getbsome clothes so she could have something decent to wear to job interviews, her daughter steals $200.00 out of her mothers purse knowing that was needed to feed the grandchildren, us and them . She admitted to stealing my wallet using my card’s on that redbox machine to buy thing’s so the item’s could be returned for the cash . While dealing with these two people found out they was doing drug’s just did not care who or what they did to hurt me my fiancée anyone else they could make a dollar off of . In September 2016 me and my fiancée made up our mind’s we had to turn over the three grandchildren and get away from them . We decided we’d put all our belongings in a storage stay in a motel/hotel until we could find an apartment . In desperation we asked them to help, had them go pick up a U-haul rent a storage unit with me and my fiancée footing the bill . They go get the U-haul and rent the storage unit late Sunday my fiancée asked for the key’s to the U-haul her daughter refused to let her mother have them, the police had to come , they asked to see the paperwork to the U-haul and once they did the police told the daughter and boyfriend to hand over everything that pertained to the U-haul . One me and my fiance wasbdone getting a few left over thing’s the daughter smiles and says Quote “Good Luck with locating and getting in the storage unit ” ! End Quotem
Instead of further arguing and fighting with those two we figured best thing we could do is go on about our way on Monday we’d get on the phone find that storage unit thinking my fiancé’s credit card paid for it . It took us just about two months we located that storage unit just in time to be told it had been auctioned off due to non payment . In that unit was everything we both owned in this world including my power wheelchair, when I say everything that’s exactly what I mean clothes, cable equipment, my shoe’s socks family photo’s a collection of what is called 50’state quarter bear’s, all 50 two valued at over $40.00 say 25×$40.00=$900.00 that is just at cost, 2 bear’s per package at a cost of $40.00 ×’s 25 package’s = a total of $900.00 my wheelchair $600.00 ×’s 12 = $7200.00 the 1999 Mercury LS @ I paid $2500.00 had just replaced the cracked windshield @ a cost of $180.00 the cost to replace the engine @ $2500.00 . How can one put a value on memories my two children my grandson photo’s of the three of them along with so many other family member’s whom have passed away never to bebseen again, just like my fiancé’s buffet table that belonged to her mother , photo’s of her 3 children, 6 grandchildren countless other family memories all gone . Two 45″flat screen TV’s a 27″ TV new dishes, crock pot, microwave, flatware, cookware, my fire safe containing a solid gold coin dated 1833, walking liberty 24kt gold coins and .999 pure silver walking liberty coinscoins, two 24kt inlaid $2.00 bill’s, 8 24kt gold Buffalo coin’s some dated in the year 200 earlier, Elvis Presley colorized coin’s some 50 cent pieces some quarter’s, a 24kt solid gold stamp . May sound petty to some I’m telling the honest truth, of course I filled a police report those two people cannot replace these those item’s need to be held accountable for doing such a horrible thing to me and my fiancée , no amount of jail time will get my wheelchair back, or the car it took me so long to save up for . I live off a very small Social Security income just like my fiancée, my rental credit’s ruined had to get two loans just to be able to afford to get away from those two people . Never have been so humiliated, embarrassed, that boyfriend attacked me in July of 2016 . Have had headaches every since, he broke my finger’s where is the justice ? All I am trying to do is piece my life back together . It’ll take $25000.00 if not more that’s why I am please help Please do not ignore this or my pleads to YOU ! Please help me get a power wheelchair, replace that vehicle, everyone needs clothing . Me nor my fiancée have any friend’s, or family to speak of , my parent’s brother’s sister’s have passed away just as hers have . My children are in no place financially to help I am turning to the public, Nothing whatsoever for Christmas, Thanksgiving we didn’t have anything we do not have anything for Christmas to eat let alpine do no Christmas tree not a single decoration do we have . Feel lucky we walked away with our lives what’s left of them .
I hope this finds you and yours well.
I’ll try not to take up too much of your
valuable time with a lot of ramblings.
*No promises, though.*
I live in New Mexico, about 30 miles south
of Santa Fe, with my sister. We live alone
on 2.5 acres in a rural area. I am 61 and
my sister is 51 and we are low-income.
We have a small dollhouse business in a guest
house next to the main building…as well as
having accounts on Ebay…that pretty much
takes care of our usual daily needs.
Then a problem popped up, or should I say,
‘crunched up’? One that we don’t have the
funds needed to take care of it.
Namely, one day not too long ago, I crunched
my sister’s car. Our car insurance had lapsed
the day before and was to be reactivated the
We have been told that it will take something
between $5,000 and $8,000, depending on
what was discovered once the rim came off.
Something was said about ‘a damaged strut’,
whatever that is.
Now we do have one working vehicle, but my
sister has several health issues, among them
diabetes and a non-functional thyroid.
She also has issues with walking long distances
or standing for long periods due to a reconstructed
ankle on one leg and a replaced knee on
the other. This is complicated by the fact that
the replacements are worn and need replacement.
On top of that, her natural knee is needing work
after compensating so long for both.
To cover business needs, runs to the Post Office
and FedEx, as well as shopping for the household
and other errands, I have the running car
almost all the time.
This leaves my sister with no transportation and
with no neighbor’s close by, I’m worried.
So what I’m asking for is help to get hers up
and running again. I know this is an imposition,
but I don’t have any other option, save to ask for
any help I can get.
I’ve not been able to find a grant for car repair,
let alone file for one. There are funds for cars,
but not any to repair one. If the car was obtained
through a free car to needy families program, there’s
aid, but none for our situation.
As I said, we are low income, but holding our own,
with only Medicaid, due to my sister’s medical needs.
(for example…one vial of insulin costs over $300 and
she takes two kinds daily. And on our income level,
there is no way we could get that without Medicaid).
I would like to thank you greatly for your time and hope
that you can help me. My sister needs her car back.
It’s parked next to the one I use (both Matrixs) and
I want to cry every time I look at it.
If there’s any money left over, we’ll use it to spay/neuter four foster kittens and buy stove pellets, as that is our only
source of heat.
Again I thank you for your time.
Yours In Respect,
Hello everyone my name is Richard, I am 32 years old, I do have a job I work full time for a service station. I do not have any kids I am engaged to my fiance Jennifer who lives in a different state she lives in California I live in Arizona. My job title is assistant manager and I am currently looking for something secondary that can help assist me in covering my expenses. My fiance does what she can to make enough of a living to take care of herself and her son who she has partial custody of but unfortunately she is limited by family and education level and cannot assist me in covering my current Financial hardship. I never thought I would be in this position but unfortunately I’m in dire straits. The used car that I purchased over 3 years ago is currently close to breaking down it needs a new axles and a new clutch. In addition because of the high miles I suspect that I am beginning to hear a knock inside the engine but I am unsure of that at this time. Because I am an assistant manager I am required to be on call for my store which leaves me very limited to finding secondary employment but I am still searching but unfortunately at this time with my clutch beginning to slip I will not have a vehicle that runs much longer. My position at my current employer does require me to make cash deposits at a local bank so without a running vehicle I am facing a strong likelihood that I will be forced to accept a demotion which will take away income that I need desperately as my current income level is under $2,000 a month and I have medical bills from a recent illness General living expenses that I cannot ignore including rent utilities and also a several hundred dollar monthly payment to a debt settlement agency. I am very much afraid that I’m about to find myself without any means to cover even my most basic expenses and I will lose everything I have which honestly isn’t much but having been homeless before years ago I do not want to end up homeless again and lose the most important person that is in my life who is also dependent on my vehicle to take me to see her whenever possible. We generally only see each other twice a year but we have made it work for nearly six years. I just do not know what to do and I have no one who can help me in my family with a loan as I mentioned before I also and paying money to a debt settlement agency I have bad credit and even the riskiest lenders will not help me. I do not any other options other than to ask strangers for help. I know that there are people in worse situations but at this time I am at a slippery slope and I don’t know where else to turn please help in anyway you can. I do have a mechanic who is willing to make the repairs and replace the parts but because the vehicle is over 10 years old and the parts it needs are not cheap he cannot accept payments and any payments that I would make would take away from my monthly expenses like rent and utilities and he cannot accept small payments because it would take too long. I am putting faith in those who I do not know those of you out there who are willing to help me please understand that this is difficult for me to do but I don’t know where else to turn again any help would be appreciated I thank you for your time I thank you in advance.
Every day thousands of people die in the world, more then you can imagine, even people who are close to us will die one day. Does it matter? Of course. Does it hurts to somebody? Of course. What can we do against it? Thats the saddest part. Nothing. Because death is the greatest and only thing what we get in our life. And It’s for free. We don’t ask for it, maybe somebody does, but most of us don’t want to die. But we have to, one day. What we can do is make the time before our job in this place ends a great time, a time what we can proudly remember.
Now here I am a little fish, talking about big things with big words, like a wise guy, but I’m not even close to being wise. One day a guy told me that you are rich if you have dreams, and If you have a dream that you can’t achieve in your life write it down and let somebody make your dream come true after you pass. Because believe me, the saddest things are the dreams and thoughts on the other side, up in heaven. Dreams that nobody knows about.
As I said I’m not a wise guy, I hope one day I will be, but until the day comes I have to wait and hope. Because hope is the only thing we can get for free before death gets us.
What am I want to do with all of these words?
I want to fulfill my dream. I will be straight. I want to get one million dollar. For why? I don’t know.
You probably think now “This kid right there, He must be kidding. It can’t be serious.”
But It is ladies and gents. All my life i was trustworthy and straight. I always said what I wanted and I always told the truth. That’s what I’m doing now. Asking for one million dollar. And all I can give for this is the hope, the hope i have, the trust in you. Trust in the that you will fulfill my dream. Even If you don’t know why would you have to do this.
Let me tell you why. I was straight to you, maybe more like anybody will be anytime. I won’t be your friend, I won’t promise you it will became part of something better, or It will change the world. No, these are too big words. All I am saying is If I get one million dollar my dream will come true. And I will be happy. I will be happy because I was able to do something unimaginable.
You know why unimaginable?
It’s easy to tell big words, It’s easy to get big things if you offer big things for it. It’s easy too make yourself weak and waiting for help. It’s easy. But I’m not doing that. All I’m doing is asking for one million dollar without any future plans with it.
In the title I said One car. One life. Do you know what does It mean?
Imagine life as drive. And you are at the wheel. Now imagine the car you driving. That makes things more interesting right? Let me tell you why. Because at the end of the day, when you pass. The only thing what will be remembered Is the car. You will be under the ground and people no longer will see you as the driver. They will only see the car, and how much kilometers you left in it. So the only thing that matters is. Will this car be in good shape? Will it be a good car? That is what matters. And All I am asking now is give me one million dollar, one million dollar for I don’t know what, yet, but I know for sure It will take a big place in this car. People will remember that one million dollar.
People will remember the car, what will say: “There was a guy, who just got one million dollar, without even have a plan with it.”
So the question is simple: Can you give me one million dollar?
On October 18 2016
Began early morning ritual with worship, exercise and work preparation. As I started out driving across the trans mountains to work at a local hospital my vehicle began to heat up and unexpectedly stopped. I did manage to pullover safely for a cooling down and started to reverse directions towards home. Again overheating. Attempted to apply quick fixtures adding antifreeze coolants and sealents to no avail no response. Decide to drift to the nearest automotive repair shop called Zenitram Automotive in el paso texas. Prayed for Gods favor and wisdom while hoping and approaching. The mechanics were very helpful and genuine thus far. Diagnosed the problem using a diagnostic reader. The results were in much need of an rebuilt engine. I was horrified! The mechanic empathized with the necessary need of me getting to work and maintaining it since I just began employment with a local hospital. The mechanic reduced the labor cost and parts to a total $1,496. I scurried and emptied my savings and provided a deposit of $500 leaving me with an ending balance of $996. I realize other imperative needs are above mine but humbly sharing my personal need to be able to continue to maintain a healthy financial livelihood. Thank You so very much.

Hello, my name is Aubrey Bert. I am a single mother to a 2 year old daughter named Jaedah. (jay-duh) We are currently in need of a car. I am not employed at the moment, but I feel like if I had a car everything would fall into place. Everywhere I go, I have to walk or get a ride. It is hard for me being a single mom, I just need some help getting my very first car. I want to be able to leave when I want and take my daughter to places. I am looking for a job at the moment but right now anything will help. God bless you all. Love, Aubrey
Hello first of all I would like to thank you personally for taking the time to read my humble request for assistance.
I have been struggling for the past 10 years with many life situations that have taken a great toll on my mental health and ability to cope with life. I recieved a DUI and have never been the same since. My business closed, my house was foreclosed on and lost many personal relationships through death or separation. I was doing alright until a break up that sent me into a tailspin and I was not able to cope. I have ADHD, Major Depression, General Anxiety Disorder and personally think I am on the Autistic Spectrum because I have many of the characteristics. I moved from one state to another following the love’s of my life but from all of life’s stresses things went downhill and now I am struggling to stay where I am at and be a good father.
My daughter means everything to me and I give everything I have to ensure that she is safe and taken care of but I need help to coping with a few bills that would take so much pressure away so that I can get to a better mind state and allow a little girls father to support her as she is growing. A donation know that my daughter can get to school and daycare and that I can work and provide for her. I am falling further and further behind everyday and need a little breathing room.
I work as a screen printer, I do picture framing and am a visual artist. I currently work but I don’t always get 40 hours and the work can be difficult to stand due to my health problems, I have racing thoughts constantly and have trouble sorting things out. I have a ear palpation that is very hard to live with when there are sounds my head doesnt agree with.
Anything would help. A donation would go directly to ensuring a child’s safety and well being through her daddy’s caring support and love.
Thank you for your time.
The individual reffered in the subject is 43 years old and had all of his family dead some years ago and except from a little land he owns and a small rent he earns from the land, he has only our family to help him, but due to our economic situation its impossible for us to give him money to repair his car.
He only asks for 350 euros in order to have a significant repairement of his only joy in his life (a heavily used car he bought five years ago), because the only way to be happy is to drive around his village and also helps him to come to our house and have a free meal, as he has also agoraphobia and other psychological problems due to his family loss.
I am currently in between jobs and i am finding it hard to find work because everywhere wants someone with a car, here is my problem, i don’t have a car and i don’t have quite enough to buy one. So i am asking for your help anything you can spare i don’t need a lot just enough for a secondhand car that gets me too and from work.
This is obviously a very last resort, i have tried for loans however i have been turned down due to being unemployed at the moment. if you choose to help me out in anyway i would like to thank you in advance because if you are someone who is willing to help out a stranger like me in hard time then you are someone the world needs more of. thank you very much.
My boyfriend means the world to me, works his butt off on night shift to be able to pay the bills and make sure we have food. I’m in between jobs and still a full-time student saving up to surprise him with a new car.
His is acting up and we’re both afraid it’s on its last leg and close to giving out. I’m aiming to save up $4,500 to surprise him with a car to replace his current one. He does so much for me and really goes out of his way to make me happy so here I am trying to find any way I can, while jobless, to treat him the way he really deserves to be treated. He deserves the world.
hey , am Joseph from Kenya and i didn’t go for further education because there was no money,currently i do help those who don’t have chance by teaching them how to repair motorbikes to start there own job and don’t have money to support them to stay with them, am looking for help to make them stay until they finish there term please help me to help them
My name is Shaela I’m a 37 year old single mom of a 1yr old girl named Lolah. I don’t have any family or friend’s that can help me due to their own financial troubles. I am asking for donations so that I can buy a good, safe, reliable car to drive my daughter around in and get myself to a job and back. Last year when I was pregnant with my daughter I came up with $2,000 to buy a car from a friend’s husband. He owned a auto repair shop and said he put all kinds of work into this car and he promised it was a great car so I trusted him. Well as soon as I drove off in it the thing started falling apart! It’s broke down now in the parking lot of my apartment building. It would cost more money to fix all that’s wrong with this car than it’s worth and I don’t have the money anyways. I’m a good person I always help others but seems nobody’s there to help me! & I sure didn’t deserve getting ripped off. Having a good car would change my life. I need to work I am sick of struggling I’ve got rent to pay and a daughter to take care of and without a car it’s impossible for me to work. Please help me raise the money for a car any little bit will help! If not for me for my little girl.

At first it was fun, I thought I can sell my car take a loan and buy better car, and I did that. After one month my car was robbed, my wallet was there with all my credit cards, passport and money..Next day my boss boyfriend tricked me with that car he wanted to take it back, because it was robbed, without window and any documents of that car, cops said I have no proof that it was my car… so now, there is no document or something like that, boss boyfriend took all of my money, my car.. and my boss had throw away me from work, so now I have no money, no job, no car. It doesn’t look very bad, but now I have loan for nothing, I can’t tell it to my parents, because I am very scared, what I have done.. It’s left only 10 days to pay my loan, and I just can not, because all my money are stolen, please help..
