Hi I’m Chelsea. Last year my 2007 mini cooper’s engine blew. I have spent the last year trying different avenues on getting it repaired. Nothing is leading to an answer. I have received 2 different quotes on getting it fixed. BMW wanted $13,000 and another auto place wanted $5,000. I tried talking to different technical auto schools to see if they would work with me, I had no responses. I’ve been driving my fathers 2003 Ford Focus but with my luck, it needs $1,500 in repairs and is unsafe to drive due to the tires. I’m going to school for nursing, and luckily I’ve been able to take online classes for my prerequisites. In January, I’m hoping to be accepted to a program. I will need a reliable vehicle to get me to school and work. I currently work full time in an ER as a CNA and have considered getting a second job to help with the cost of the car. Not having a car has made this very difficult to do and the hospital will not allow overtime at this time. I’m only asking for $5,000. I’m upside down on the car currently and owe more than it is worth. I have reached out to my bank about getting a loan, but with no collateral that is a no go. My paychecks cover bills and I live paycheck to paycheck like most college students. Anything will help, I’m a little desperate.
Hello ladies and gentlemen,
I am a 21 year old university student from Germany in need of help.
I am in my 6th semester and I work a minimum wage job so that earning money does not get in the way of my attendance at uni.
I study during the day and mostly have the closing shifts at night.
I do not live at home anymore, I share a small apartment with three other students. They rely on me to drive them to uni and I do rely on my car usually to take me to work. I work in a bad part of the city so going by car is safer and in the long run also less expensive than going by train. (Train tickets are exorbatantly expensive in Germany, trust me or google it). The ‘usually’ in the previous sentences is also a keyword, because that is no more.
My car broke down, which means I am left without a cost-efficient transportation method, so I am trying to save for a ‘new’ car. My previous car sadly is beyond repair and was an Opel from 1999. I am not looking for anything expensive. I just want a used car that can take me where I need to be and can be used for a couple of years.
I did check the internet for an estimate of how much I would indeed need for a used car in a somewhat good condition and I did see that I would need about € 1,200.
Even if I cannot reach that goal every little bit would bring me closer to this goal.
I have also already started selling some of the clothes I do not need and my old car got wrecked which brought me in €200 for the materials. So right now I have about €265 saved for a new car.
I hope asking for all of you guys’ assistance is not too much.
The problem for me is that the money I do have barely helps me pay the bills to survive each and every month. My money is mainly spent on books for uni, my uni attendance fee, rent and food. Every cent is valuable to me and I do turn every coin around twice and often look for cheaper options.
I hope any of you are kind enough to help me out as I am in great need of any help I can get!
I would greatly appreciate any kind of contribution to my cause.
Have a blessed day and take care!
It’s 2018, im in school for something I love, I bought myself a nice used truck (2004 explorer) life couldn’t be any better. I was on cloud nine. I guess I was having too good of a time with my life because the universe hit me upside the head.
While working a seasonal job at the outlet mall early February I got a call from the mall security that a delivery driver backed into my truck and ruined my rear bumper. They couldn’t (or maybe wouldn’t) tell me who the driver was, or for what store because the mall had no cameras.
“I can fix this” I said to myself, and so I did. With white tape. 😥 I didn’t want to call my insurance amd have my rates go up. I also didn’t want to worry my parents, so tape did tje job. An ugly job, but tje bumper wasn’t going anywhere.😂
I’m a server, so my hours (can be wonky.)
It’s May! The sun is out, the flowers are blooming, people are drinking and enjoying their life, I forgot all about my car and the tape holding it up. I couldn’t be knocked sown from my cloud…or so i thought.
Come mid May, it’s Friday night and I’m at work, I close up at around 3am Saturday morning. I get home tired and realize the only parking available is on the side street, about four houses down. No big deal. I’ve parked further before. I’m getting ready for bed, so close to laying my head down, so SO very close when I hear a crash and a screech. I got nosy and decided to investigate the sound. I stick my head out the closest window, a car speeds by blowing the stop sign in front of my house. “He probably has to poop” I think to myself as I chuckle. Out of the corner of my eye I see my car in the middle of the street!! I go and investigate, someone hit my baby and ran. 😭😭 I called the police but all they could do was take a statement. They towed my car, cost me $250.
The truck needed a new transmission, and the front axle replaced, great.
The same day, at around noon I call my insurance and explain everything. The woman on the other line informs me in a very quiet voice that the insurance wasn’t going to cover much. Maybe $200, and my rates were going to to up..What!! I’m in a pickle now. I thank her for her honesty and hang up. Now Broken hearted and without a car.
I’ve been relying on people for rides, but that never ends well. I’m going to be forced to take a semester off of school in order to pay for the damages.
If you’re reading this and you can help me, please please do. I’ll love you forever. ❤❤❤
I’m $2,000 in the gutter. 😥
My PayPal is;
I love you!
This is a long shot I know, but We are kind of desperate at this point.
My husband and I have been married for 8 years and are in our late 20’s. We have 1 child and work hard for what we have.
We go through ups and downs like everyone, but I know we are blessed more than others in certain areas. Having only 1 income though we cannot seem to save any money for a second vehicle or really much else to be honest. So yesterday when the car started making funny noises on the way home from picking my husband up from work we were praying it wasn’t something major. ($$$)
My husband took it in today and they said it was the wheel barrings and it’d be 400.00 to fix and I know that doesn’t sound like much to some people, but it’s a lot for us. Since my husband is a painters assistant the work isn’t always steady depending on what his boss has scheduled so every week the pay is different.
He is hoping to be able to make it to work, but we don’t really know. Between rent and bills I don’t know where the car expenses will come in. It’s just very stressful and embarrassing, but I know everyone is going through something.
If my family could receive a little bit of help from this though then I guess it’ll be worth it. Thank you
I’ve been searching all over the internet for help and come across this, I’m not sure if it’ll work and this is completely out of the norm for me but I don’t know what to do.
I’ve been working since the age of 13 and doing everything I can to ensure I have enough to get me by. About two years ago I started going into debt and gradually been paying it off even if I have to go without to help others.
Recently however my car had broken down. I hoped that it was just a small issue however i have been told I need a complete new engine in the region of 3 to 4 thousand pounds. This is something I cannot afford and now left making alternative ways to get to work.
While trying to sort my debts I’m also trying to save for a mortgage so me and my girlfriend can start a family.
Like I said, don’t know if this works but I’m asking for help from anyone who is generous enough to help me. I need to start saving for the repairs but in the mean time need enough money to purchase and insure a car to get to and from work.
I really appreciate it if you can help me.

Hello my wife and I have always tired to be on our own and make it our self’s but about a month ago our 2006 Dodge Grand caravan decided to lay down on us the motor blew up her and i work at the same place at wabash we are having a hard time getting back and fourth to work she might have to quit .. but sometimes when I can’t find a ride I have to walk to work I live 11 miles from my job I can’t ask her to walk as well we have been looking at used vehicle and have found a mozida b_300 truck 2003 model extended cab would be the right fit for our family.. the down payment they want is $1800 it was 2 grand but I’ve talked him down a couple hundred bucks we have 3 children witch one is autistic and requires special care and certain therapy that we have to pay for out of pocket so it would be nearly impossible for us to save $1800 we could easily make the payment every month if we could just get the down payment. If someone would be willing to help us with this much needed down payment it would be such a blessing and also we need that truck to take our autistic son to his very much needed therapy appointments witch in the last month since our motor blew up we have had to miss a couple sessions it breaks my heart to tell my son we can’t go see his doc doc as he calls her because we don’t have a ride and then to see how sad he looks it gets to me.
He loves going to his sessions and they really help him . So anyone out there that wants to help my PayPal account is PayPal.me/michaelrissa2015 I’ll continue to walk the 11 miles to work everyday if I have too but some days I can come up with a ride but no one wants to come get me way out in the country so I’ll walk if I have too just last week alone I walked to work 4 out of the 6 days I worked and all 4 days I walked home after the 10 hour shift was over I have to clock in by 5:58 a.m and I work until 4:30 every evening on days I have to walk I have to get up at 1:00 a.m and leave by no later then 1:45 a.m and I usually get to work about 15 min before I have to clock in when I get off at 4:30 if no one is going towards my way and I have to walk home I usually don’t get in till 8:00 or 9:00 at night depending on how many breaks I have to take but I have to do it cuz I can’t lose my job if I did then we would lose everything it has took us 10 years to build so would someone please help me with the down payment portion of the truck I’ve got picked out I’m not asking for anyone to bye me a vehicle out right I just need help with the down payment where I can drive it off the lot we would handle the monthly payments from there.. once again our PayPal account is PayPal.me/michaelrissa2015 and the down payment would be $1800. As important as my job is my sons therapy sessions is more important our other two kids witch are normal they also have things there involved in that we hadn’t been able to get them too.. if someone would please help us I promise as soon as I’m able someway I’d pay it forward even if down the rode when extra money was around I get our van fixed and just give it to a family in need for free and not ask them for any money for it .. I hope God will put it on someone’s heart to assist us in making this down payment. Your kindness would not go unnoticed the pic below is my wife and autistic son p.s I hope my feet can hold up a little bit longer walking 22 miles a day round trip is not an easy task to make yourself do it would be as easy to call into work and miss but when I decide to get married and decided I was bringing kids into this world I had an obligation to care and raise them to the best of my ability and do my absolute very best to make sure they always had everything they needed to live a healthy and productive life also I made a vow to my wife to love honer protect and take care of her no matter what so if that means I have to walk 22 miles to earn a paycheck so I know my family will have a place to lay there head at night and know there will be a hot meal for my youngens to eat then by golly I’d walk 22 miles 7 days a week if that’s what it took.. I won’t be the guy who let his family down even tho I have wore the most painful blisters on my heels and feet I still get up and take off walking.. someone please help us my wife and I our parents are both gone I’m the only child my wife does have a half sister but she is not around so all we have is each other and have to do what we have too to survive in this life I just hope someone has the means to help us make the down payment
thank you for your time and your willingness to at least read my story .. may God bless everyone and may God bless our world .
Hi my name is Angie… I joined the service after a long time dreaming to be in the army. While I was in I got hurt and they could not find what was wrong until recently. I was discharged two weeks ago and did not know the army sends you home they stop all pay. I still have bills. I have to get my car out the shop my son is going to his first prom ever 8th grade and he wants this slim flower pink and white blazer with loafers to match. I have lights to pay food to put in the house a teenage boy can eat you out of a home and i don’t get assistance and I am a single mother. I do still have my job at Wal-Mart but cannot go back until I’m cleared by the Veterans office which I just was able to put my claim in .. Although I put the claim in I don’t know how long it will take to get accepted or how many doctor visits it will take to tell me I’m able to stand more than 15 minutes to be able to go back to work. I need help right away my sons prom is the 30th and I need my car to be able to go to my appointments to get cleared…I’m real if you have any doubts you can email or call me just ask I can show you my paperwork
Hi. I’m currently trying to get a truck. I work two jobs 60 hours a week. I am 19. My car broke down a few weeks ago. I have been having trouble getting back and forth to work now. Since I am on my own I thought it would be best to get a truck so I could haul furniture or anything if needed. I have been to several places and no one will finance me for $1000 down. That is all I have. I have been on my own since I was 16 and have started to build my life. Please any amount helps. I really need a truck soon so I can get back and forth to work. All I need is $5000 for the down payment. Any thing will help. Thank you
It is said that desperate times call for desperate measures….so I thought I’d give this a shot. I will not go into long detail with my woes because I know that there are people in this world out there much worse off than myself. I am only hoping there are people out there willing to help out a girl in need. To put it in a nutshell, I’m out of options. I recently lost my job of 2+ years due to the company closing down. Yes, I do receive unemployment, but it is minimal. A couple of months ago on a whim, my boyfriend and I found a deal on a “his and hers” set of cars that was such a steal….we had to jump on it!! I turned around and sold my car the SAME DAY (yes, the same day) I paid for the new car. I owe nothing on it. It was such a quick purchase, we were not diligent and did not get the cars checked out first. Needless to say, for reasons I am not clear on, my boyfriend threw me and my cat out of his house on a whim. It came from nowhere and I am still trying to wrap my head around all that has happened. All my things are still there and I am fortunate enough to have a good friend allowing me and my cat to stay with her about 58 miles from where I was living. As I was parking my car in her driveway, it seemed to be leaking something. Thought maybe oil or something but felt it would be best to have it checked out. Took it to an incredibly great mechanic that was recommended to me that also has great Yelp reviews, and after the no cost diagnostic was done, it turns out that I have a cracked radiator that is leaking coolant. The cost to fix it is $825 and unfortunately, I just do not have any extra money to pay for the repair. If I drive it, I run the risk of the engine seizing. I need my car to get back on my feet and get myself back to work. I pay all my bills and pride myself on being self sufficient. I just unfortunately do not have the extra money to pay for the repair. I need my car to get back to work. I am asking for the kindness of strangers to help me get my car back on the road so I can pick up the pieces and move forward. I have always been one to “pay it forward” and I am hoping someone will do the same for me. Thank you for your time!!
I have never been the one to ask for a handout. Even my parents, I help them. They don’t help me. They never have. I even co-signed for a car for my mom and when she lost her license and job I gave her my entire savings for college… almost $10,000 to pay off the car loan she had. Now years later, I am married with a beautiful daughter and a home, but am struggling to catch up on bills with my husbands income is 1/3 of what it used to be. We wanted more than anything to give our daughter the life we never had (we both grew up on welfare and even homeless at times) and are devastated that we are now in the position that we are in. We’re $1500 behind on car payments alone and barely make it where our electricity is kept on. Our almost 3 year old is started to understand more and sees my husband and I struggle and stressed. That’s everything we didn’t want her to experience. We’re in about $8,000-10,000 in debt and behind and I can’t help but get so upset that had I not helped others in the past I wouldn’t be where I am right now. I couldn’t even afford a wedding (we got married at the courthouse just legally and went out to lunch afterwards). Now living in flint I even worry about human trafficking, and crime in our area. I don’t know what to do and have no one to help us. I’ve never wanted to resort to asking for help but here I am, with nowhere else to turn. I’m just praying for a small miracle at this point. My anxiety is crippling everyday especially when things happen like my car completely breaking down while I owe money on it…. now I can’t get to a job to make money which is a double whammy and puts us in such a difficult position, so really anything helps even if I could just pay one bill I just don’t know what to do.
Today, my car broke down. Everything was going okay in my life. I was holding it together. Not progressing, but not stagnant or paused like I was for the last two years of my life.
I finally saved up enough money to buy the perfect urn for my sister this past weekend. In two weeks, it will be two years since she passed. She was absolute light. We barely had enough to cremate her. We had to beg the funeral director to see her, against his wishes because she was not dolled up. We begged and got 20 minutes. 20 minutes of her laying inside of cardboard.
When I finally had enough money for a cheaper urn, every urn we came across was so dark. And cold. I hated to look at them. So I found one that made me feel her life when I looked at it again. My mom was in tears when she came into her room and found it. The cardboard box she had been kept in, finally empty. She has spent two years and 20 minutes inside of cardboard.
$600. It took me two years.
I was about to drive to work when my tires wouldn’t steer. They just sunk. I feel like I sunk down with them. Like a part of me is still down there.
$1400. I sunk when I saw it.
Why is this life so difficult to carry on in like everybody else? My first thought was to return the urn. How horrible of a thought. How has life made me think this way? That returning my sister’s ashes to cardboard would be alright to do because I will be paying less than half of the repairs to a stupid vehicle… a vehicle. My sister.
And I won’t even be able to drive my car even then. Two years… it will take me four. It will take me 6 just to get her back into something dignifiable.
I will take anything. Anything to avoid taking her back out.. please..

Hello, and thank you to anyone willing to read this . I truly appreciate it. I have been going through a really hard time for a few years, but I feel like things will be getting even worse if I don’t get help soon. I was homeless a few years ago , and do not want to end up homeless again .
I suffer from a severe anxiety disorder, along with panic disorder, major depression, complex PTSD , Borderline Personality Disorder , and Chronic Pain . I have not been able to work since 2005 after a car accident. My husband supports me and my two children . It is a struggle, to say the least.
Thankfully , with God’s help, we are able to afford food , and personal hygeine items , and pay the minimum bills . We are in a lot of debt we cannot even begin to pay . I wish there was a way I could find a way to make money from home, but do not have the skills to do so , and because of the amount of pain I am in each day, along with the symptoms I experience from my mental illnesses , I am unable to work outside of the home.
I was on disability for a while, but then they cut me off because they said my husband made $10 too much . I pray night and day for God to send my husband a better paying job , or that he will get promoted . I beg God for a financial miracle to help us.
Though I could use help with a number of things, what is most concerning to me is my situation with my car. It needs a tune-up, and other maintenance we haven’t been able to afford for the past 5 years. I would also like to get my husband’s truck fixed , which has been broken down for about a year. To be able to fix up both of our vehicles , and actually have reliable transportation would be life changing . It would ease so much stress off of my husband and I.
My husband works so hard to support us , but also has child support to pay, and we can never seem to get ahead. Knowing that our car could break down at any moment, and we have no money to fix it leads me to worry then that my husband will end up losing his job, and we will be homeless again. I am terrified of that happening.
I am requesting altogether $1,200 for the repairs of both vehicles . They both need a lot of work , and maybe I’d be better off purchasing a new vehicle, but I can’t afford that , or all of the fees that go along with it.
If you could find it in your heart, and if you are able to help my family and I, I would be so very grateful . Thanks so much, and God bless you.
My family and I are asking you to PLEASE help us? We recently moved back to our home state, Iowa from Michigan. We moved to michigan with only a U-Haul and our possessions in 2015. My fiance and I lost our son 9 days before his first birthday in August, 2013 due to sids. It was and still is the hardest most painful thing we have ever gone through, our life turned what seemed to be insane. I was prescribed several medications due to being diagnosed with, Severe depression, anxiety and PTSD. All While still trying to keep it together for our 7 year old daughter. It seemed like maybe a change and less memories would maybe help. So we packed up and moved. Shortly after being in Michigan, starting new jobs, after a couple weeks we were able to go to a “buy here, pay here” car dealership that offered to take payments on the initial “down-payment” and offering to finance us through their in house program for individuals trying to build their credit, our monthly payment was $400.00 a month, and mandatory full coverage automobile insurance. Our monthly car payment and insurance combined was $720.00 a month. While also trying to keep up with rent, utilities, food, and everyday needs. After 2 and a half years and paying off nearly half of our vehicle, we decided the cost of living in Northern Michigan versus Iowa is huge. January 19th we moved. After losing our home. We could no longer afford. 4 weeks ago the dealership informed us, we must “Reside” in michigan with our car until the vehicle is payed off. 9 days ago they came from michigan and “re-poed” our only vehicle. Our only source of transportation. Our only way to our jobs. We are asking for help to buy a cheap but running vehicle that will get us to the grocery store, work and home. Please?
My car broke down on the Interstate on Monday when I was returning home from work. I work as a custodian at a major apparel company. I recently fired for bankruptcy because I had trouble paying my bills. I am 66 years old and have worked hard all my life. My financial troubles began when I was laid off my job back in August. I got downsized. Since then, I’ve found other work but the job I have does not pay nearly as much as the one that I used to have.
I do not have any savings and I cannot afford to pay to get my car fixed. I don’t know how much it will cost to get it fixed. But I had similar problems with this car before, and it cost over $500.
I am afraid I will lose my job if I cannot make it to work. I cannot go to the grocery store to buy food. I am afraid I will be evicted from my apartment if I can’t pay the rent.
Someone please help me get the necessary funds to get my car repaired. I believe in God and I have faith that something good will happen to me. I have struggled for so long. I just need a break.
I have never done anything like this before. Even though I am somewhat ashamed for having to beg strangers for money, I am so desperate that I don’t know what else to do.
This is not exactly a car repair, but my truck broke down. It is not worth fixing due to the age of the truck. I live in rural west Texas about an hour from the nearest city. I have to haul water because there is no well where I live. I have a trailer and a tote, but no truck to haul it. I have animals and I have to go to town at least two to three times a month to get supplies, feed and hay. Included in that are my groceries, propane and anything else I need. I have a small compact car that I use now for all of that, but it is very inconvenient, and limits what I can haul home. I end up going back and forth to town a couple times a week now. Not very efficient in wear and tear on the car as well as how much I spend on gas. I struggle every month to make ends meet and there is no way that I can afford to buy a new truck or make payments on a vehicle. It would be a Godsend and a lifesaver to have a way to haul everything I need in one or two trips. It has been very stressful and worrisome to manage this problem every month since my truck went down. A new truck would change things around for me.
This is an old link from a couple of years ago, but still works fine. I appreciate your time looking at my post.
I have done something so stupid, embarrassing and now costly, I’m not sure what to do, or were to turn but I find myself here at the mersey of strangers. I have nobody to ask for help. I will tell you my story and you may understand why.
So grew up in Australia in a family of six, two older siblings ( that I’ve never been close to) & I have a younger sister whom I’m very close with. We didn’t really grow up together as such, my mum was institutionalised in a mental institution for long periods of time. I can’t really elaborate any more than that as it was a well kept family secret away form us kids – I didn’t find out until my teens the truth.
So during the times mum was “away” the oldest 2 lived with my dad and my sister and I lived with my mothers mother. The first time dad dropped us off I was young not yet at school – he just said it your job to look after your sister and left. My younger sister Debi is disabled and I adored her & still do she is everything to me, so took that role very seriously, it was a hard one though my grandmother was cruel to us both but in particular my sister. She would torment us, me by being cruel to Debi, sometimes even pulling her hair, walking past and hitting her for no reason, if anyone tried to speak to my sister my grandmother would say don’t bother she won’t understand, she’s queer.
Debi understood love and kindness & she understood cruelty too.
When we lived with my dad, he was an angry alcoholic. He’d put us down constantly useless and stupid were his favourites sometimes he’d get more abusive and foul with his language but I think you get it. With my dad it was verbal abuse and I seemed to cop it more than my sister, he’d say things like you’ll never get married, you can’t love something that can’t be loved. If it wasn’t directed at Debi I was fine. As I said I’d do anything for her.
We started school together and Debi & I were joined at the hip somehow back then we were in the same classes & year. Then the worst thing happened Debi was sent to a special school. And she boarded my dad would drive us it was a day trip in the car from were we lived and I’d fight him all the way from the back seat pleading that I could look after her. Promising I’d do everything I was told.
I remember being missable and alone at school, without her I had no one. In truth I don’t think I wanted anyone else. But after a year the best possible thing happened, dad couldn’t afford the school so she came back! mum was back too we had to move to a different town & we went to a school were Debi had special classes. When I say mum came back she was in bed a lot & we weren’t aloud to disturb her.
It was during this time I had my first experience of what I wouldn’t find out was an anxiety attack until I was in my early 20’s. It was the day I walked into my new school all of a sudden, my legs felt like concrete and they started to shake I was hot all over and the world began to spin, I vomited. It happened again that year at a school excursion and again at school one lunchtime I just suddenly became overwhelmed and the world would seemed like it was closing in on me.
These episodes became more & more regular as time went on. So I didn’t socialise or play sport or do anything that a kids did, and I didn’t do sleep over as I was a bed wetter. What I did do was worry about everyone & everything. I felt very isolated and alone.
By the time I was a teenager my anxiety had become something I experienced most days. I’d found out were mum was going when she was “away” I thought I had my answer I was crazy too. I’d really didn’t want to be locked up, sent away for long periods of time and I was terrified so it became my tight lipped secret. Each time mum would come home she lost more and more of herself. I’d just have to live with my craziness & keep it well hidden.
My high school years were horrible isolated alone I felt so worthless and ugly. I didn’t have many friend or other students that even knew who I was. I do remember being spat at in the face by one of the popular boys and teased about my ugly secondhand clothes.
I started working at a local restaurant when I was 14, I would wash dishes on weekends & during school holidays. It was my perfect job, hidden out of sight isolated and I didn’t have to wear nice clothes. So at 15 nearly 16 the owners son was home from University. He was so cute and he was with a friend. They were so nice to me and I wasn’t use to it at first I thought it was so weird these two cool guys talking to me. They had been out and arrived just as I finished my mopping the floor I said goodnight to everyone. Then the two guys were sitting with my boss, I said goodnight and the two men said they would walk me home being so late. I said I’d be fine. But they insisted. They both turned & looked at my boss, she agreed I was to be walked home.
I was extremely nervous and hardly spoke or made eye contact. It was late at night and half way home the bosses son pushed me to the ground and raped me. I tried to fight but he was so strong. I have no idea to this day what the other guy was doing or were he was. I didn’t ever go back to work. I was in so much pain I’d been torn down there & it hurt so much. I stayed in bed crying. I told no one.
I’d just say I was sick.
I went back to school but couldn’t focus on anything, my grades dropped dramatically. My anxiety got worse now I couldn’t be around men on my own. I wouldn’t go to a male bank teller, I’d never go to a male teacher only in public or if others were there, and I became a recluse hiding away from the world.
Fast forward to my early 20’s. I had finished school got jobs as kitchen hand & cleaning. Still vey alone isolated & sad. I decided it was time to go and see someone I was ready to be locked away.
I went to a phycologist who cost me ½ of my wage. I sat down told her of my symptoms and she said I had anxiety that it was very common. I looked at her confused I’m not going to a mental institution.
She laughed & said no. I could only go a few times because of the cost. But I put everything in practice she said. But it was a very long road.
As for men I was still scared, I’d have to be very drunk to be intimate with someone.
I met a policeman in my mid 20’s I thought he would protect me he was so kind and gentile when I met him. He really swept me off my feet. I even got taken away on weekends, given flowers. I was so excited he was amazing everyone loved him. But 3 months in things started to change I think it started with a put down, here & there, slight tones that he was displeased. Then somehow I blinked and it was full mental & physical abuse. Why did I stay ? Because more than anything I wanted to be loved. The thought of being alone was frightening. Eventually he left me for another woman. I was left trying to put myself back together. I moved back to my parents home and everyday I’d sleep drink some water and slept some more pick at food. Then I started watching Oprah and in particular remembering your spirit. I think Oprah may have saved my life.
I got a job, then a better one, then a better one I’d push through the anxiety. It was harder to push through the depression. I was now diagnosed with clinical depression.
I wrote a list of all the things I wanted to do and one of them was to live closer to the beach. I moved to a town on the beach & cleaned the rich peoples houses for money. Then I got a job at a factory.
My first day was terrifying I started to have an anxiety attack, I had never worked in a big place before with heaps of people about. It was so overwhelming. I was so scared but I was trying so hard. I needed this job too. So I said to my supervisor I’m not feeling very well. He’s reply you want the job or not. I went to the bathroom and threw up. I stayed. Everyday that’s was my routine anxiety all the way to work throw up, clock on. And then eventually everything went well I got a couple of promotions I worked hard. I was so grateful to have a job.
Then the biggest miracle of all happened I met a man that I was comfortable with mid 30’s and I could talk to him. We became friends I even went out for drinks ! I tried not to get my hopes up, but I think it was too late. He made me laugh so much he was perfect, in my eyes. One day he asked for my number I was so nervous I could hardly write it down or remember it.
Was it finally my turn, was I going to have all those things I’d dreamt of, a man that loves me that won’t hurt me. I was in a spin but for the first time ever a good spin. I’d watched everyone around me meet people, have weddings, have babies build a life together. It was something I believed I could never have. He picked me up in his Ute & yes I was nervous. We went to the beach and it was perfect, he was perfect. After a few weeks we hadn’t kissed so I thought we were just friends. I was hoping for something more but if it was friends so be it. Then it happened he dropped me off said I think you should be my girlfriend & kissed me. He left and I could stop bawling I’d never been so happy. Me! I had someone I was so exited. We hung out I guess we did all the things couples do. I asked him to meet my sister & he said no. This concerned me but I didn’t let it upset me. I explained how much she meant to me. He started to become more concerned with money & how much I had. I had nothing an old car my furniture. He accused me of wanting him for money. I didn’t I was 100% in love fist time in my life. So to prove it I payed for everything. I didn’t care as long as I had him. Because in my mind we were going to be forever.
I wanted to spoil him so if he said he wanted something I’d buy it for him. If we went away I’d pay for everything. I was so happy. He said he didn’t want to get married but he would be with me forever I was fine with that.
He wanted to go away on a holiday overseas I said I didn’t have enough money. He was disappointed but I was always careful with money as I had never had a high paying job so I slept on it. So the next day I applied for a credit card.( Without telling him)We went on a holiday, not overseas on a road trip. I also bought nice clothes and makeup I wanted to look pretty, for my man.
I had every intention of I started paying it off but I was also spending money on us. So I’d pay for everything as much as I could food, bills, spending money ect. At this stage I got a loan for $20,000 and I was using it so he didn’t think I wanted him for money.
We were talking one night and he said he’d never wanted children. I said I really did. He said it wasn’t up for discussion. Don’t forget I’d never had anyone really before my second relationship so I thought all this was normal. I loved him I resided to the fact that, I wouldn’t have children. I adored everything about him. I was happy in love, I felt like it was all too good. I couldn’t believe what was happening. I was in love, by this stage late 30’s and starting my life like a normal person. None of my family had met him & I still didn’t know his. If I asked about family he’d change the subject. He’d tell me bits and pieces but nothing much. I hadn’t told him about the anxiety, depression my mum. It was like I was so happy it didn’t matter. I was looking forward not back.
He became very cold and distant. I was begging god not to let me screw this up. He started flirting with the young girls at work. During this time he got a promotion and was going really well. He invited others from work. We had dinner and drinks to celebrate. I overheard someone say I can’t believe he’s going out with her. I looked at him and he was talking to a pretty blonde girl. He looked great that night I’d bought him a shirt and jeans and everyone was complementing him. I was turning back into the clumsy fumbling idiot once again. I was finding it hard to breath in the room. Anxiety again. I hardly ate I could barely drink. I just sat there with my glass in my hand like I was a rabbit in the spotlight watching my world fall apart. I had a feeling I wasn’t going to be in the picture long.
So I tried to do everything I thought I should do cook clean, tell him how wonderful he was & how much he meant to me. I got more credit cards more gifts. He hated me. It was like he was repulsed every time I was near him. I wasn’t aloud to touch him. I went to kiss him one day he pushed me away from him, get off me he said. I felt like I was a dirty disease.
It was Christmas and I got all of his favourite things, I wanted him to feel loved & special. It took me hours to write the card I told him him much I loved him. He wanted out. I wanted him forever.
It was New Year’s Eve and he was working I was not, I found out by accident that production has stopped because of a breakdown being New Years Eve they’d let everyone go home, I called no answer I called again he answered. He was at the pub drinking I could hear girls in the background, even though my heart sank. I thought I’d let him have fun with his friends, I knew most people that would be there. I just asked him if he’d come home at midnight. I never told him but I’d never had a New Years kiss before, ever. So I waited up I was super excited my first kiss at New Years Eve, even better it was with the man I loved. At 11.40 I sent a message I’ll see you soon right. There was no reply. I watched New Years Eve on TV all around the world. I watched as others were so happy, with the people they loved, their partners, friends family and they were having fun. He came home an hour late I looked at him I could smell another girl on him her perfume, lipstick, and I could see it in his face, he knew I knew as well. He turned and walked out. Without a word it ended.
My heart was smashed once again the depression& anxiety soared through the roof. This time I was on medication 3 times the average dose of anti depressants.
My bomb of a car broke down beyond repair. At this time I got a car as I really needed to get to work $20,000 it was at high interest. I went through a broker and he organised it all, I picked up my car it was the first nice car I had. So my life became get up, anxiety work, eat, cry, sleep, pay depts. Even on my days off I sometimes didn’t get out of bed or eat.i was so sad my heart hurt so much.
They changed my role at work and I worked with a man that hated me. He’d yell swear verbally attack me, I went to HR they said perhaps I should find another job. I’d be in tears all the time and I was so hated. I was a grown women being teased & picked on at work financially I was stuck.
Here I was yet again no one to help me, anxious alone and with suicidal thoughts. But I had to be here for my sister, I loved her far too much to ever leave her. It was when I went to visit her I decided once and for all I needed help. So I started counselling. I got demoted at work as I was told I couldn’t work with others. The guy that bullied me was mates with the boss and the succeeded in demoting me. He on the other hand was promoted. He has a few female favourite co workers that like to torment me, as they know I have no one to go to. So that’s my background worts and all.
However this is what I really really need help with I have been going to a therapist and was feeling good. I won’t ever have my own family, or a partner, but I’d decided that I could be happy looking after my mum, my sister & id make that my life, ensuring they are ok. I’d work hard pay off my depts.
Then I had a car accident that involved another car. I was at fault, the man was really lovely that I hit. Everything was going to be ok, I was insured so I thought, everything was fine. I rang my insurance company and I am not. It was shocking to hear I was beside myself. I looked back over everything and I had stuffed up. In my mental haze of depression and anxiety I had totally not got my insurance, I didn’t have any at all.
I have to repair the mans car that I hit and my own if possible. The estimates I have are $17,000AU the total I owe on everything is $64,900AU.
I really really want to do the right thing by the person I hit, to pay for all his damage. So I’m begging please help me. I am going to ask for my dept money too. For one to get me out of work. I can’t handle the harassment. The next part is I need an operation on a lump that has formed in my head, it’s not cancerous but it need to be removed & a second operation on my female bits. I just can’t afford to have either done.
I have never asked for help, and now I’m pleading for it.
I bless everyone that reads this, it’s ok if you don’t donate to me I will still bless you & wish you well in this life. If you do donate I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I can’t put into words what it would mean to me. Not having to face my bullies, my ex and perhaps being able to afford medication. I wish you all well.

I was recently residing with a sick relative(one of my favorite aunts), in Shiloh, GA, even though, I was staying with a few friends, in Columbus, GA, at the time. I was making sure that I kept a check on her, frequently, and would like to continue.
By all means, I am not greedy in any kind of way, whatsoever. Nonetheless, I would be willing to accept whatever type of assistance one has to offer. If a vehicle/car repair is donated to help with my situation, I would be oh so thankful and grateful. Thank you and God bless!!
My name is Justin and I currently serve in the military. While deployed I was served with divorce papers and came home to an empty house. When I say empty house, what I really mean is that I had nothing. My 3yr old son, two dogs, even the lunch meat in the fridge. The divorce papers locked me into paying off a vehicle I purchased for her only months before. I also discovered all four of my credit cards maxed out totaling over $30k. I went from a point in my life where I felt like I had it all figured out only to realize that it all crumbles in an instant. After some initial anger of which I eventually overcame, I pulled my life together and got a second job. I was making minimum payments and once a month I was able to put a meager amount towards the principal on some of the debt. Fast forward two years and I get transferred to a new duty station. This move effectively reduced my income by almost $1k per month. Now it’s time for me to work a third job and fill in the gaps. I started working with the ride sharing services and was then able to make ends meet again. Fast forward another six months. My only source of transportation blows a head gasket. Being a diesel engine means that the repairs are expensive. Being that it doesn’t run means I can’t sell it for much over a couple thousand dollars. Through this tragic experience I have lost two of the three sources of income. I am overwhelmed by the debt and my only salvation lies in my ability to get around. The repairs my vehicle needs will cost $6000. If I can not get a handle on paying my bills then there is a very good chance I will lose my security clearance and subsequently my third source of income. Please help me get my truck back on the road so I can dig myself out of this hole and go back to court and fight for visitation rights. Tears fill my eyes as I write this remembering the last thing my son said to me over the phone. “Daddy, will I ever get to see you again?”
Hey everyone my name is nia, I have always been a hard working independent person and never asked anyone for help but I just don’t know what else to do. I feel desperate and this was my last option. Two days ago I was driving my car and the oil light came on so I thought it meant I needed an oil changed, so I kept driving but a little after I saw a lot of smoke coming up and pulled up, all the oil had poured out. I really don’t have the money to get a new car right and I still owe a lot of money on this car that broke down. I live in a small town which makes it hard to get around without a car. Work has been so slow and I been applying for jobs but I have not had any luck yet I need a car to get to work or to find another job. My job is an hour away from my house so I have to get my car fixed soon as possible. If anyone knows me they know I have a good heart and always helped others. I bought the car 3 months ago for 3000 which I had to get a loan from the bank to be able to buy it and I’m making monthly payments to pay the loan back of 240. I need 500 dollars to fix my car. It needs a new oil pan which cost 200 dollars plus oil, filter, gasket, and labor work which ends up to be 500 ( I have an old 2001 Audi no bumper) Please if anyone can help me it would mean so much and thank you for taking the time to read my story.
My name is Melissa Hernandez, and I am 38 years old. I never thought I would be in this position at this point in my life, but I am. I was married to a cruel and abusive man who destroyed my soul. I endured years of torment at his hands. In July of 2015 we had a baby girl, Adrianna. My husband was disinterested in our daughter but was cognoscent of my devotion to her, and would not physically abuse me in front of her. I continued to suffer in silence until early October. That night, everything changed. My husband became enraged because Adrianna, who was a little over 2, dumped all of her shoes that were in a basket onto the floor, and I had not noticed them on the floor. My husband came home from work and found them on the floor and went into a rage. He started screaming at me, calling me a pig, and words so horrible I can not repeat them. I was afraid this would escalate so I moved to pick up Adrianna and put her in her room. However, before I could grab her my husband scooped her up in one arm and came towards me. He put his other hand around my neck and began strangling me. At this point, I was eye level to my daughter, and I looked in her eyes and she in mine, while my husband was squeezing the life out of me. It is even difficult now to write about this. The terror, confusion, and sadness that I witnessed in her 2 year old eyes as she watched her father 00strangle her mother, was something that I will never forget, and it changed me. This ended tonight. I would never allow this man or anyone else to ever lay another hand on me. I broke free from my husbands grip and called the police. He was arrested and charged with assault and battery, but released later that night. I am sure many of you are questioning why I had not gone to the police earlier or asked for help, but my husband has friends in high places and he had a way of manipulating the situation, and has done so before and I almost lost Adrianna. This time I was granted a temporary restraining order, but knew I could not stay in the house or he would come back and this time he would really be angry. The next morning I packed up my things and took the little bit of money I had saved, and left. I had some friends in Morris county New Jersey so I went and stayed with one of them. She let me sleep on her couch for almost a month. I was able to get a job and save money, I filed for divorce, I was able to get an apartment and things seemed to be turning around. My husband, who is a Colombian immigrant, went back to Colombia. I believe it was to avoid paying child support and to evade his upcoming assault and battery charge. It also meant that I would receive no help or child support from him, which honestly, was a small price to pay for our safety. I made enough money on my own to pay for our rent, our food, our car insurance, and for our basic necessities. Then disaster struck. When I was at work I was called by my daughter’s care taker. A stray dog was wondering around the park and had attacked my daughter. I will never get the image of her little bloodied face out of my head. I for sure thought she would be scarred for life. She needed surgery on her mouth, stitches on her face and hands, and wrist. She had an overnight stay at the hospital and we have had multiple hospital and doctor visits. Adrianna is healing beautifully and she will only have a tiny scar on her face. The dog also did not have rabies. I thank god everyday for protecting her because it could have been exponentially worse. Even with my insurance I had almost $8K of medical bills. I exhausted my savings and sold anything and everything that was of value. Since the dog that attacked my daughter was a stray and unaccompanied in the park, there was no one that could be held libel. I had to be out of work, and because I am fairly new, had no vacation days. It all spiraled from there. I became late on my rent payments, my electric bill, essentially everything. I worked extra hours and started to chip away at the debt. Then my car started acting funny and now it will not drive over 45 miles and hour and shakes violently if I get to 45. It will cost me $1200-$1500 to fix, and without my car, I will not be able to get to work or get my daughter to her daycare or her doctor appointments. I have poor credit because of credit cards my husband took out and never paid.
The past few years have been hard for me, but I have never given up and have always maintained a positive and hopeful attitude, but I have to admit that I am becoming a little discouraged. I am in desperate need of financial help to get my car back on the road. I have no family to help me, and my friends are not in the position to help me financially. Receiving the money to fix my car will literally keep a roof over Adrianna and my head, food in our mouths, and will allow me to keep working. I am determined to rebuild my life and raise a strong independent women. I was living like a prisoner for 7 years and now am just beginning to become the women I was always meant to be, and I am trying to teach my daughter how to become a strong, smart, independent and successful women. A women that will understand her worth, and know that she can accomplish anything, but also realize that sometimes we all need a little help, and there are kind people that are willing to help, and want nothing in return.
I have been desperately trying to get ahead in life. But the last six months have truly kicked my ass. I had to leave a job since it kept me away from home for extended periods and my family was not able to cope. I have found new employment and was starting to catch up on all the out dated bills and keep the collectors at bay. Until yesterday. On my way to work my car decided that it would call it quits and gave me a shove and a jolt. When the tire came off I knew it was the end. So now I cannot even get to work to try and fix things. I can not afford a new vehicle nor can I afford the repairs since I can’t get to work.
I’m not one to ask for help very often as a matter of pride but this time.. I can’t fix things easily and the pressure of trying to provide is getting to me. If you’ve ever felt the stress of being the sole income earner you know how it feels.
I am asking for what ever you feel is right. I want you to know that your donations are going to a family of 5 who is trying, struggling to get out of being poor. We just need some help to get ahead of the curve slightly.
Hello my name is Grace,
I just turned 24 on the 29th of Dec and I live in Tidewater, Oregon.
I live with my fiance on the Alsea river in West-wood village, almost exactly 8 miles from the town Waldport.
I’ve lived in Tidewater for almost 5 years and had a vehicle for only 1 out of those 5 years. Being 8 miles away from town without a vehicle has had a very negative impact on my life.
In July 2015 I gave birth to my first child, Sophia Grace. The best day of my life. I discovered what love really was when I had her. The moment I became pregnant I could hardly wait for her to arrive. It was the longest 9 months I’ve ever had in my life, it felt like 9 years!
She was thee most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen and I’m not just saying that because I am her mother she should have been in baby modeling.
Besides the point, Sophia’s first year of life was the only year that I had a vehicle since living in Tidewater. The vehicle was impounded, I had insurance but the cop said I didn’t and I couldn’t make it to court so I lost the vehicle. It was almost $2000 to get it out and I’ve never had that amount of money in my life so I had to say bye to Toyota 4Runner my fiance got for me and Sophia.
Neither of us can get to work and getting to the store is hard, especially when no one we know lives nearby. Not to mention not very many people can even afford the gas that it takes to get us into town and back.
The hwy I live off of is a very dangerous road to be walking or biking on, its very rare to see anyone outside a vehicle on the Alsea Hwy. But it’s something we have to do if we want to eat and find work.
In result my daughter lives with my mom in Bend, Oregon. Which is 4 hours away from where I am. If I have no way of getting to a store to get food, then there is no way I will allow my daughter to suffer. Now we are so far apart, and I am missing out of my daughters first steps, first words, first years and moments of her life because I have no way to drive to her.
I’m stuck, I can’t get to work, so I have no job, no money to make to purchase a vehicle. It’s very depressing and very hard. If I had a reliable vehicle, my whole entire life will change, in the way I need it too. In the way I so desperately want it too. I am not used to this. And I am very helpless right now.
I don’t know what to do. I don’t have the money to make payments on a loan, and I won’t ask for help unless I am certain I will be able to pay it back. My family doesn’t have the funds to help me out with this anyhow. A vehicle that actually runs and drives is out of everyone’s price range.
I don’t know who to turn too, I’ve applied for multiple loans, any loans, and I get rejected because I am a ghost in the credit system. I have no credit history.
This is what I have resorted too, I hope that you understood my story and that it makes sense.
My post title says Vehicle/Transportation and Utilities.
I tacked Utilities on there because my Washing machine is on its last leg, it is off balance and its pegs are digging holes into my floor. It has ripped through the vinyl.. and its not pretty. No one will fix it for me. It hops across the room when it starts to spin fast, I have to rearrange the clothes in it so its balanced. I have to do this about 3-6 times every load of laundry. And my laundry has piled up because I can’t just walk away from it when I wash a load. It takes up a lot of my time.
My dryer squeals through the duration of load. My father in law tried to fix it and made it even worse. When I start a load I have to mess with it for a couple minutes, shake it around and hope that the screeching and squealing fades and then I can finally walk away..
So what I am asking for is Vehicle so I can get my life back and a Washer and Dryer. Or the Funds for these things,
I would like a reliable nice vehicle for my family
So I’m asking for $15,000
Hopefully you consider my situation thank you very much for reading,
Hello, my name is Anastasia. I wanted to say I think it is kind and sweet of you to help others in need. I’m stuck in a bind. For about a month, I started having car troubles, things like loud noise during acceleration, shifting and jerking of the car. I got it looked at about two weeks ago and found out I need a new transmission which will be $2500. This stressed me out so much because my warranty had expired and I haven’t finish paying off the car (which turned out to be a whole new situation on its own). I was going to go to a dealership and see what i can do about trading it in but as soon as I had the time to my battery died on the car (about a week ago). I had someone help me get a jump but my car was smoking so bad we left it at that, the guy informed me that the transmissions probably out of fuel. I was told that I did have a bad leak. I wouldn’t be stressing out if I had some form of transportation to work. I live outside of Nashville where no bus runs into Nashville and my new job is in Nashville. I start Tuesday January 9 and I was really excited about this job because I was waiting for a job like this for awhile. I was thinking of renting a car for the week but my last job sent my money to someone else bank account. It hurts to try to come up with other options and to be screwed over once again, that’s why I am leaving that company. I really wouldn’t mind taking the bus if it was an option. I wasn’t sure the max amount you were willing to give. I was hoping $2500, but anything will help at this point. I appreciate you taking the time to read my message. Have a wonderful day.
I need help! I just ran into some bad juju. I worked for a company the last two years, starting as a machine operator, which is the bottom rung there, then moved up to shift lead, then to shipping/receiving/warehouse lead. I was let go, the reasons being of much dispute. Ideally, I would love to be able to hire a lawyer in order to take action. I realize that is asking for a lot, so that’s not hugely important. It’s just that the timing couldn’t be worse. I’m supposed to be moving in with my future wife next month, and my car is need of a few repairs, but I do all the work on it myself, in order to save money. I filed for unemployment, but I hope to be back in the field before that kicks in. I don’t know how this really works, but if anyone wants to talk to me about it, or you have a job that needs filled in the Denver metro area, please contact me if possible!
Ok, so where do I even begin! I had a co-worker who was having trouble purchasing an automobile due to his poor credit. In trying to be a kind friend and do a good deed, I offered to let him take over my current lease and I would just sign on for a new one. Unfortunately, I didn’t think things through and he ended up crashing the car which was under my name for the lease and it was deemed totaled. He didn’t have insurance so I tried to put it through my insurance company but they refused to cover any of the damages because they said he wasn’t under my insurance policy. I was in shock and worse, left with to pay the buyout amount of the car which is just over $20K. I tried to reason with the car company to see if they would negotiate the amount but they refused to budge and said if I don’t pay them in a week they will send it to collections as a charge off on my credit report. I don’t have that kind of money and don’t want a charge off my credit report. If anyone can find it in the kindness of their heart to help in this dire situation I would greatly appreciate it! I don’t know what else to do.
My car broke down on the 17th of Nov. and after putting out several hundred dollars and several mechanics we came to find out that our engine head is warped. I have already used all of my bill money and now everything is going to be behind in getting paid. I am more stressed about getting this money to get my car fixed then I am about having Christmas gifts for my children as my youngest is 15 and understands that our car is more important then gifts under the tree. The dealership told us it is going to cost $2020.00 but they are giving us a courtesy discount bringing the cost to $1927 and some cents He said this would be the price as long as when they go in they don’t find anything else wrong. Now I don’t know much about cars but I have found out that not many places do this work. I have also found out that the dealership seems to have a better grasp on the electronics of the car. We have to get this fixed asap as this is my husbands car that he uses for work, but also for me for food shopping and church. We live rural and must have a car. The dealership has given us a loner car but they want it back if we don’t get the work done on the car. I cannot pay for this, we just cannot afford it and we cannot afford to be without the car. I am desperate and don’t know what to do. Any help would be awesome. Thank you
I finally found a woman after been single for about 12 years. I was single through out elementary, middle and high school. Even though I was the type of guy who would bring roses and chocolates to a lady on the first date. I would write her poems, I would try to come up with anything to make her feel loved and special. I am super happy that I finally found a woman that likes and loves me. I am not very attractive and physically I am far from being perfect. So my girlfriend has a daughter and she was afraid to tell me because she thought that I would reject her and back off from having a relationship with her. Her previous relationship wasn’t didn’t last long because the man left as soon as he found out that she was pregnant.
She got a car with him and he left her by herself so now she is stuck with the car payments, while caring for her daughter, the rent and other bills. I want to help her a lot because she is constantly depressed and stressed. We both have been used by someone else and then left in a place where it feels like things get worse and worse everyday. I will be working two jobs to help her as much as I can and it won’t be easy but it’s not impossible either. I want the best for my lady and her daughter even if she is not mine, she deserves a healthy and happy life.
If I could get any help from anyone I will immensely appreciate it, I won’t be able to repay you back but I know that life will always return you the good deed and double or triple. We need help financially and if you can help us that way, all I can do is say thank you so much! Thank you for your time and patience.
I hate to ask for help, I have always worked for everything I have. I do work a full-time job and a part-time job, I live with my parents right now while I’m trying to get everything going back on the right track with my life. I have applied for loans, for payday loans, called family, asked friends and unable to do anything, now I am turning to anyone online who may be able to help me. I am going to school on top of working a part-time and full-time job to get a teaching degree with a specialization in special needs. My mother is unable to work due to being disabled and my younger brother who lives with us does work a full-time job. All of the money we make goes to getting back and forth to work and trying to save up so that we can buy a reliable car as my car blew up after we put a lot of money into it and the car that we still have is on it’s last leg and breaks down all the time. I am just a young college student who is trying to buy a car and pay the rest of the things I have to pay to be able to continue to attend my classes for school, yes I have contacted the school and done everything that I could do that way and we are still at a loss. Every little bit helps, please help me to be able to buy a reliable vehicle so that my brother and I can continue to keep our jobs and I can continue to go to school. Thank you and god bless.
My pay-pal information is at the bottom of this post. Again thank you and anything is greatly appreciated. God bless you all.
Hello. My name is Melissa and on October 22nd, I was involved in a car accident while I was working with one of the ride share companies. Luckily, no one was injured except my vehicle. It sustained more damage than the other person’s vehicle that hit me. My insurance was able to cover the damages and my vehicle went in to the shop for repair. It has been there for almost a month and should be ready by tomorrow. The problem I am having is coming up with the deductible of $1500 that I have to pay out of pocket. I receive Social Security death benefits for my son whose dad passed away 2 years ago and that only comes once a month. By the time I pay all of the bills, rent, car payment, insurance, utilities, food, etc…..I’m lucky if I have a dollar to my name. Since I haven’t had my vehicle to drive in order to work for Uber and Lyft, there is no money at all right now. I have to wait until December 13th……..It has just been really difficult……I’ve tried to apply online to get a loan but my credit score is so bad they aren’t about to let me get a loan……I’ve been really stressed out about this because my car is our money maker that keeps a roof over our heads and food in our mouths……If someone out there reads this and feels the need to help, I would be so grateful to them for that for the rest of my life. It took a lot for me to find the courage to even ask because I feel very prideful and don’t want to ask. Thank you for reading my story.
I have photos of my vehicle with the damage from the accident but having trouble uploading it on here.
It took me a long time to realize that if I pray and ask for help yet I’m afraid to ask people or even turn down something as simple as someone paying my lunch out somewhere then I am turning away from the help that I prayed for. As such, I decided to not feel bad about it and no longer turn my nose up or judge people who do need help. It’s an uplifting feeling!
I am amazed that such a site exists. After reading what others go through I don’t feel as bad as I did. However, that won’t help us out but if you are one to read this, thank you for the time and if you decide to skip on me I thank you for whomever your heart feels is right for you!
I lost my job and apartment earlier this year due to unforeseen injuries that started with my first ever arthritis injury. I didn’t even know I had it. It effected my right knee and kept me down for weeks. However, with a fear of losing everything I chose to work before it was completely healed and, as a result, fractured my right foot. I lost even more work and wound up losing it all anyway and am here at my mother’s house living on a recliner.
While on this recliner it doesn’t suit my large body very well and I wound up doing damage to the achilles tendon on my left foot. Now, I have both feet injured and may not be able to work until after the new year. But I can only stay here until February and I owe taxes so a refund is not possible, sadly.
My mother has torn ligaments in her shoulder so she cannot work. She just was able to get early retirement at a meager 400 a month. My stepdad gets disability of around 800 and it covers most things except food, any extra electricity that we may use and emergencies. So, yeah, it doesn’t work out well.
Before my injuries I bought a car to fix so I could get a better paying job and share it with my brother and his little family who also lost everything and wound up here before I did. He had emergency back surgery that messed up his legs so he cannot walk well without shaking ridiculously. His wife works minimum wage and is having trouble saving money and paying for things for their 3 year old daughter.
If I could get the car fixed and licesnsed, tagged and a few months of insurance I feel like it’ll all be good. We could then get to food banks, I could get to a job once I healed and my brother’s wife could get a better paying job, all before my step dad’s vehicle goes out, which it is about to.
His vehicle has all 4 tires showing the tears and breaks going out. It also needs an exhaust system and breaks. If this happens everyone is screwed.
My car needs 2 tires, a radiator (or just a radiator flush) and the tags and insurance. We have estimated 160 for tires, 100 for radiator flush and 200 for a whole new radiator and labor if a flush does not work (pt cruiser so it could be more). The tags and taxes are 40 plus either 100 for one month or a little over 500 for 6 months of insrance.
The repairs on my stepdad’s vehicle is 500 for tires plus another 150 for breaks and we don’t even know about the exhaust system. We guess a grand would cover all or most of his.
So a good starting point for us is one or the other vehicles getting fixed. 350 would be a good start. The most for mine would be around 850 we think.
For my step dad it would be around 1,000. 2,000 we think woul take care of it all.
Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated! I do understand that there are many in need so thank to whomever you do decide to help. Miracles are usually people who can while they’re in a good place in their heart. Thank you for that!
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.

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 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
HI, I AM A FULL TIME, HARD WORKING MOTHER OF TWO SMALL GIRLS. I WORK FIVE DAYS A WEEK TO PROVIDE FROM THEM THE BEST THAT I CAN.

I NEED HELP THOUGH, WHICH I HATE ASKING FOR, BUT SOMETIMES HELP IS NEEDED. MY CAR IS A 2004 FORD TAURUS, WHICH IS ON THE VERGE OF BREAKING DOWN. I HAVE HAD IT FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS, BOUGHT IT USED. THE A/C DOESN’T WORK, AND WITH KIDS IN THE SUMMER I NEED THAT, THE ONLY OPTION I HAVE IT KEEPING THE WINDOWS DOWN BUT THAT DOESN’T SEEM TO HELP ALL THAT MUCH. I REALLY, REALLY NEED A NEW CAR, SOMETHING THAT IS SOUND AND CAN GET MY KIDS AND MYSELF FROM POINT A TO POINT B. I KNOW THAT THIS MAY SOUND LIKE SOMETHING SELFISH OR JUST ME WANTING SOMETHING BUT IT IS FAR FROM THAT. IN ORDER FOR ME TO WORK I NEED TO DROP MY KIDS OFF AND PICK THEM UP FROM MY BABYSITTER WHO LIVES 30 MINUTES AWAY FROM ME. I NEED TO BE ABLE TO GET TO WORK. DOCTORS APPOINTMENTS, STORES. THE LIFE STYLE OF MY CHILDREN DEPENDS ON ME WORKING, AND BEING ABLE TO GET THERE. I KNOW SOME OF YOU MAY BE ASKING, WHY DOESN’T SHE JUST ASK FAMILY AND FRIENDS FOR HELP OR RIDES. WELL MY FAMILY IS GOING THROUGH TOUGH TIMES AND ARE UNABLE TO HELP, THEY ALSO WORK JUST AS MUCH AS I DO SO THEY ARE NEVER FREE TO HELP ME, AND BELIEVE ME I ASK. I JUST NEED HELP, PLEASE!! MY PAYPAL LINK…
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.
