Air Force Retiree Asking for Assistance
Hello everyone. Kind of hard to ask for assistance when you’re really trained to not ask for help for 21 years. But, with the cost of living and unexpected vehicles problems I find myself asking for help. My only source of transportation has gone down and the bill is unreal. I am looking for any donations to help cover costs at this time. My goal is $4237.38. This is for repairs, gas, electric bill, gas and water. I can cover the food bill. Thank you to anyone who would help.
Humbly asking for a little help
My name is J. Please excuse me for using some anonymity. I’m coming to this site, humbly asking for donations to help me with impending charges for a vehicle inspection and potential work that needs to be done in order to pass.
I live if PA, and I’ve had to postpone auto repairs and now; the PA Inspection. I take care of my mother in my home, who is homebound, much more; bedbound as well. I’ve funneled all of my resources into her and her needs, because when I was younger, she sacrificed so much for me.
I’m tapped for resources. I’m at my absolute worst right now. I was receiving compensation from the State’s Waiver program that my mother is enrolled in. In cases like ours; they provide caregiver services which also allow a family member to receive compensation while they care for their relative.
My mother was admitted in the hospital back on December 30th 2022, and hadn’t returned home officially until March 2023. The Waiver program only compensates when the patient is in the home. Thus leaving a huge gap in my abilities to keep up with her bills and my own obligations too. This has left me in a huge deficit and I’m slowly crawling back out of the debt I incurred while she was in the hospital receiving care.
I’m trying to get back on my feet. With the needs to continue to keep a float; I’ve maxed my credit cards out, turned every loan that I could refinance, and it’s brought me to my financial knees. I need some help just to be certain I have enough right now in this time of need; in order to just take care of one major obstacle. My car inspection is on 4/28.
I’m certain it will not pass, but it’s the only means of transportation that I have in order to get to and from my other job that primarily pays the bills at home like rent, utilities.
I’m humbly asking for at least 300 to 500 dollars if it be out of the kindness of any donors hearts reading this request. I never thought I’d be in this position and I feel terrible asking for such a minor happening in my life. Feels almost selfish but it’s a major situation, and I’m using all of the resources I can find, that will help. Whatever anyone is willing to give to this cause, I will forever be grateful. I thank you, and I pray peace, prosperity, and safety upon all of you. I thank you again.
Single mom who just gave birth and also have a 2 & 5 yr old needing help getting car fixed to safe working order
I am a single mom with three little ones ages 5, 2 and a newborn daughter that is just 2 1/2 weeks old. Throughout my pregnancy I had severe hyperthyroidism and was at risk of heart failure, and so I was pretty much bedridden on doctors orders for modified bedrest during the whole pregnancy and couldn’t work. I have been able to receive a little bit of cash each month through DSHS but that doesn’t even begin to cover my rent let alone cover any auto repairs that I have. It is really difficult trying to go anywhere on the bus with a newborn two-year-old and a five year old so a car is essential.
I am also going to be looking for work soon now that the pregnancy is over and is not affecting my thyroid or heart as badly as it was before I gave birth.
My car is not safe to drive at the moment as it needs the motor mount bushings done, as well as some suspension work (I was informed that it has the original suspension from 2003 when it was manufactured and has had six owners before me). It is making a really loud clunking noise and I need new brakes as well. I am just trying to get it to the point where it is safe to drive as I’m scared to drive it around at this point.
I am trying to find help to pay my back rent at the moment as well and using any cash I get to go towards that so I don’t really have any money to spare for auto repairs. I have gotten a few quotes and I am trying to raise at least $1000 and that should cover the parts as well as the labor to get my car safe again.
Also, about a month ago someone smashed my driver side window and rummage through my car as well. So it would be nice to go to a pick and pull and try and obtain a window for that side as right now I just have heavy duty plastic and duct tape covering it.
If anyone could help me with raising the money for this, I would be forever grateful.
The father of my 2 yr old and newborn isn’t really doing much to help, and is not a supportive person to me so it’s pretty much just me and my 3 daughters. I have no family in the area besides my dad and he is low income as well.
I’m just in a bad situation and trying to keep my head above water and slowly but surely regain my life back (financially speaking).
Thank you for taking to time to read this!!
Hi I am a single mom on disability. I bought a car about 6 months ago from private owner and it ended up having a ton of problems. I work for DoorDash part-time and need a car. I’ve had to put every penny I’ve had into it and I still don’t have it running right. I need help with cost for some parts , I found someone to help me do it that’s not going to charge me as much as a normal mechanic but I don’t have the money for either. I also need money to get it insured because I’m not been able to insure it due to the fact that I put so much money into it. Anything little bit helps. I just need to get back on the road so I can start working again. Thank you and God bless.
Help with my car costs
Since my files are too big to post here, I added an Imgur link to a compilation of what I’ve found and all I spent. its not many pictures but enough to show all that’s happened and what I need to do to make my car safe and fun to drive again like how it was when I bought it from my sister years ago.
I’ve been putting off my maintenance for far too long and that’s due to how daunting it is and how expensive in the short term it is as well. About a year ago, I needed to redo my suspension and other miscellaneous things on my car to make it safe to drive again, and planned on doing it myself. Spent well over a thousand dollars, possibly even more then that, on quality and Honda recommended replacement parts, new tools, and safety gear to make sure it went well and as smoothly as I can manage while working my current night shift at my job while working varying weeks with different hours with alternating off days. Due to my mother interfering and pushing me to take the car to a shop, I ended up without my car for almost 4 days, while worrying about jury duty for a solid week. I got my car back a day early, with an ABS light on and no alignment what so ever. And they charged me and mom, $1300 for incredibly shoddy work, on a job that should’ve cost at minimum $600 or so, and taken at most a day and a half for everything to get done right and to proper specifications in the manual. To add insult to injury, my battery died the day after I got it back before jury selection, and mom used my car again days later and bought new rear tires without me knowing until she texted me that morning. I bought a new battery that day for almost $200, and almost ran out of money since I had to pay my mom back again. All the bills for this work, for the most part, are paid off, but I don’t want to be stuck in this situation again and I don’t want to buy my parts over the course of months like I did previously I need to rebuy all the parts they mounted, because they failed to grease the joints, new used tires from a local shop for $220, and look into getting a new paint job since Honda recalled the paint on my line of cars. There’s plenty of good shops near me but quotes and even the prepping of the panels for new paint will cost at least, by my calculations, $1000 to get it looking like new again. Its a 2006 Civic LX and I plan on selling it later but not with the number of problems it has now. I need to raise at least $5000 for new parts, tools, and possibly labor should I need to take it to a better shop nearby. Thankfully I can do most if not all this work on my own, but I need to build the money and I can’t do that well while feeling so strapped for cash every week. my depression, anxiety and my sleep cycle make this profoundly more difficult and money troubles is the last thing I really want to deal with. I’d rather have a cushion to better protect myself and to not have to rely on my mother who seems intent to think I’m unable to do my own car maintenance. I can fix my car no problem. its building that energy and finding time since I work so late that makes it hard. I’d like to make at least $5000, but any more then that and I can start getting more parts that feel like they’re starting to wear out, and make some preventative repairs to help the engine and other critical components last. And spend the money for a full diagnostic to see if that other shop screwed me even more then I thought and prep for possible legal and malpractice charges against them. My car is my baby, its how I get to work and how I take my mind off things when the going gets rough. This car, as run down as it is, is my life. I’d do anything for it to make sure it lasts a long time. I’m not able to save readily enough or fast enough helping my best friend even eat. Or managing my own subscriptions to keep me safe online and such. Below is my PayPal, If you can help, please send it. Whatever is possible and can be spared, please do what you can.
BABY DUE IN MAY AND CAR NEEDS TRANSMISSION
To anyone taking the time out of their day to read this I truly appreciate it. I will start off by introducing myself and telling you a little about me. My name is Monica and I am 33 years old. I am a mother to a 13 year old and very artistic girl and I am also currently pregnant with my second child. I understand many people don’t believe that whatever happens to you as a child should dictate who you are as an adult. I disagree because if those childhood traumas are sill in play today it is always almost impossible to move past it. Growing up my life really wasn’t the typical American dream. My mom gave my sisters and myself up at an early age where the only “family” I had was my step dad side. I know he loves me but at the same time you can not tell a child they are not yours because you are upset with them and you have been in the picture since the child was a few months old. No excuse!
My mom has always came and gone in our lives as she pleased. She was not there for anything important to us. She was not there for my first menstrual cycle, graduations, the delivery of my child and I am sure she will not be there for my second. She recently came around after being gone with no contact for 16 years, mainly because she found out she had breast cancer. I do not hate her but we will never have that close relationship like most mothers and daughters because she was never there. I found out in September of last year 2022 who my dad is. I have always been lied to since a child that he was dead. Come to find out he was an acholic and still in recovery. We talked faithfully for a few months and then he disappeared. I am kind of used to people leaving so I did not take it personal.
When I gave birth to my first born in 2009 I have never gotten pregnant again. I always assumed I couldn’t have anymore children. At the end of January of this year I decided to take a pregnancy test because I felt movement!! Like I have never believed the women on tv not realizing they are pregnant but it definitely happened to me! I was almost six months pregnant when I found out. I am currently 29 weeks and considering I have not started my remote job I have gotten my baby a few things on my own. There is still so much she needs but with her father paying everything and the money is tight it is almost impossible for him to help.
I bought my car in 2020 used for $5000. Absolutely no problems whatsoever other than having to get a new battery. My car has been sitting outside since October of last year because we were not sure what was wrong with it. My boyfriend decided to take it to a transmission shop to get a diagnostic done on it. Well, he received a call from the mechanic and the transmission he found has 97k mile on it for $1100 and with the part and labor it will cost us $2500. The cheapest option for us will be to just get the work done as we do not have money for a new vehicle. Once the transmission is replaced she will be good as new as she has always been a good car and we have no codes showing up. This is the time where a person would ask family for help but with my background I have no one. I have always had a life as a child until now that I had to make a way on my own.
It has been very stressful these last few months with not knowing I was pregnant, rushing to get things for the baby with not much time left, and not having a working vehicle. I do not like asking anyone for help but this is a situation where I do not know what to do. I would greatly appreciate if someone could help my family. We are good people. We do not bother anyone or wish ugly unto a soul. We are really trying our best and just need help. We have been together since 2016. I moved out of state to be with him from meeting on a dating site. We just need a helping hand. He is a hard worker and a very good father figure to my child. I do start my remote job on the 14th but I wont hold my breath because I was suppose to start the 20th of last month but they changed my training day.
If you need proof I can show it to you. My baby is due in May and my car is sitting at the shop waiting to get worked on but they will not start until we at least get the transmission covered first. Please help if you can as I do not know what to do. I am so stressed and so much going on at once and with the possibility of having gestational diabetes I could really used some weight lifted off my shoulders. I am even willing to pay you back a little at a time when we can. We are good with our word. Please someone help us!

Deep Dark Depression and Desperation
I.have been abandoned by my family. My only friend went into septic shock in May from dialysis. He has still not made it home from the hospital. He was the only support system I ever had.
I have suffered from clinical.major depression my entire life. I believe it is from mental.amd emotional.abuse because my dad played me like a game piece against my mom.telling me she didn’t love me so.i would go with hom.everytime she caught him.cheating on her because he knew I was the way for him to be able to.come back home.
No one would help me. My grandmother was brutally stabbed to death when.i was 17. It didn’t hit me until.i was 19. So in 1994 I tried my best to die. I didn’t know what was wrong and the pain was so great I knew to die was the only way take it stop. I shouldn’t be alive
I’m 48 years old now and that same battle had come back. I was put on disability at the age of 30. I never applied for it. My Dr’s told me they did because I would never be able to hold down a job.
My dad us a successful business man. My sister is the chief assistant district attorney of a county in my state, her husband is a sheriff. They won’t help me and it doesn’t make sense. My own child, the person GOD GAVE ME TO SAVE MY LIFE, won’t speak to me. I have never been given the 1st reason why. I have 2 grandchildren that I don’t know. They all get together on holidays and leave me at home alone starving while they are celebrating Christmas together. They can’t even see how this is being disobedient to GOD. None of this makes sense. No one will give me a reason so I can’t even try to make things better. But I have not done anything to them.
I decided to go through ect treatments in 2021 to try to get well. My car was stolen and I found out who did it. If the piece would have done their job I would have gotten back but people don’t take me seriously because I am emotionally unstable. I’m not dumb. I know have gifts from GOD and I am a very sensituve and empathetic person. I love. I’m so close to GOD now.
I have been traumatized and my Dr can back my story up as well as the people in the community that I have begged to help me get my son back. I honestly can’t understand anything about this. I have sent them.letters begging them to just tell me how to live? I am losing this battle fast..I am on a very low fixed income. I have been stranded and abandoned and I feel great fear. GOD equipped me with a family to get through this battle but they turned on me 4 years ago. I don’t have enough m8ney to survive. I have every benefit I can think of.
I had to go off all my medicine to try to please my dad. I’m crying so hard right now I can’t even read this. I have reached out in every way I can for help. I was talking to always reach out for help before you thought of anything else. I can’t think of anything else. I have made myself feel like a loser a pathetic person for having to beg for money. I can’t get to my doctor. My doctor is an hour away I can’t find anyone to take me I’m tired of trying to beg people and I’m tired of feeling like I’m a bothering a burden. I can’t believe my family is done this to me knowing how sick I am and how I have been so sick all of my life. But they have me blocked they won’t reply to me I think they’re embarrassed of me I think they’re embarrassed of the things that I remember from when I was young I think they’re embarrassed that people will find out how they’ve treated me so it’s easier for them to just forget about me. I’m going to die I know I’m going to die and I don’t want to die I love my son so much I never want him to question why I didn’t love him enough to stay here and that is not even the case my son has abandoned me and he saved my life. I am in so much pain and I’m so desperate and I’m so afraid I have never been so terrified in my entire life. I’m months behind on my rent. I have temporary help with my utilities right now. I know that I could consolidate my finances somehow and have easier payments but I don’t know how to do that. I don’t even know how to make it through the day. I wake up in tears everyday and I’m telling the truth I say this before God and God is the only thing that I have is the only thing that has not left me he has been beside me and he’s the reason I’m alive. I got an emotional support dog in March I didn’t know he was going to be an 80 lb lab but he has saved my life and he has skin allergies and food allergies and I can’t even afford to feed him anymore so I use my food stamps to feed him because he’s my responsibility. There’s nothing that I’m lying about and I would not try to take advantage of anybody I would not even do this if I were not absolutely completely desperate and I don’t know how I’m going to survive. The depression in the anxiety are the worst they are so cruel I wouldn’t wish it on satan. The pain that I feel is real it’s worse than torture in the third world country is what it feels like but nobody can see it therefore nobody can treat it therefore there’s no way to get rid of it and to remain alive without my family without a support system. If anyone can help me it would mean more to me than anything in this world I want to see my grandchildren I’m wanting to know my grandchildren I know they need me God would not have given them to me if he didn’t want me to have them and I know they need me. I am going through the Battle of my life and I have humbled myself and realized that everyone needs help sometimes and there’s no way I can get by without help. I’m willing to do anything I have to do to back up my truth. I am a good person and I have such a great empathy I feel like I have the gift of discernment I don’t know but I’m not crazy but I made you feel like I don’t matter that I don’t have a purpose that I’m just a burden. I don’t have a friend I don’t have anybody but my dog. If anyone can help me God bless you so much I don’t know how I would ever repay you but I will spend my life trying. Thank you so much.
The screen shot is of one of the emails I sent my family months ago. I have never gotten a reply or heard a word from them. I don’t have a mother anymore. I am not a bad person. I have really nit done anything wrong no one understands me.
When my iwn family wont even acknowledge me, i dont know what else to do to seek help. Please pray for me.
Thank you again.
How did it come to this?
I’m stuck. I’m broke. I’m overwhelmed.
Just like Rome, my financial MISHAPS, MISSTEPS, & MISTAKES did not happen in a day. With the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, it IS clear that my actions and inactions created this most unpleasant and unfortunate situation.
They say there is nothing shameful about asking for financial aid. Yet, I can’t help but feel shame and embarrassment in doing so. HUMILIATION. CYBER BEGGING.
I am not here with paltry needs. I am in dire straits and facing genuine struggle. Lack of efficient financial planning and poor financial decisions have caused me to fall into a cycle of escalating debt. My Credit Karma scores sit at 501 TransUnion and 504 Equifax. NEEDS WORK. Once upon a time, I could boaster a score in the mid 700s. GOOD.
As desperate as I am, I can’t help but speculate on the legitimacy of this website. Is this site authentic? Credible? Ethical? Legal? Fake? Well, here goes nothing. This is my request.
Below are my two (2) most pressing debts:
My TitleMax Title Loan. I know, S.T.U.P.I.D. VERY S.T.U.P.I.D. I took this loan out on 9/2021 thinking it would be easily repayable. It seemed like an affordable solution to a ‘perceived’ need that I had at the time. However, I haven’t been able to make any progress paying it down, let alone pay it off. Consequently, I’m renewing and rolling over the loan every month. My loan term is 30 days. The finance charge cost me $804.64. And the APR is 169.29%. As of this posting, my pay-off amount is $6,068.22. As you can imagine, I have had countless sleepless nights worrying about repossession.
Sunbit (a buy now, pay later technology of local service providers and retailers). Unfortunately, my Smart Fortwo maintenance expenses do not come cheap. As of this posting, I am already in the hole $4,338.00 from previous maintenance services performed. My car is now due its 70,000-mile service and aside from any other advised service recommendations, it also will be needing new tires and brake pads.
A little about me:
I currently earn my income as a gig driver. As you can see, my vehicle is an integral part of my mode of operation. I realize that solely gig driving is not a sustainable way to maintain a living. Moreover, inclement weather more than often precludes me from the likelihood of making money. But, be that as it may, it is what it is until I can increase my earning capacity.
Assistance to the above debts would be immensely appreciated as it will remove much-weighted pressure and allow me to focus on overcoming the underlying cause of my debt problem… CASH FLOW.
Kindly thank you for your time and consideration.
I Need Help, I Am Unable to Go Forward Without Help
My name is Krysta. I am a single thirty-eight year old woman. One flaw I possess and am currently working to overcome is my inability to ask for assistance before it is too late. I suffer from mental health issues, it has caused much distress in my life. I am currently unable to afford for my medicine or therapy. The community resource I was using for years as of last year stopped giving free assistance. I have not seen a doctor since last May. It is a constant internal battle and sometimes I just want to give up. Fifteen years ago I experienced a mental break and grabbed a gun to end my life, I was twenty-three years old. I called family members, the police were called and were on the scene while I held a gun in my hand threatening self harm. An officer felt he and his fellow officers were in danger and he did what he is trained to do and according to Texas law his actions were legal. I was shot in the face and in my left hand. I was formally diagnosed with Bipolar II and severe PTSD. Due to my poor choices that day and the officer having to intervene I was charged with a serious felony. I was given probation, while I did my best and achieved many accomplishments such as going to college, obtaining an upper management position in a large pizza chain and accumulating awards for my performance, living on my own, I was officially charged with the felony after 10 years to prison. I tell you that for a better understanding of my choice of jobs. I came home and saved up for the first car I got completely on my own. I was 35 and very proud of myself. I went back to the pizza chain for employment and was a driver and manager for a store close to home. I chose this because I can be an asset in the fact that I can do everything in the store and require no training. Plus delivering pizza can be profitable with experience and a good area to deliver in. It was great for me, I worked on my credit and was able to raise it 200 plus points. I did work very hard and sometimes I worked 7 days per week because the store needed it. I am dedicated to a job. I never thought I would learn a tough lesson, that even though you are hardworking and dedicated you are still replaceable and expendable. On a Sunday I came to work a little early to help a fellow co-worker get to work. I walked in on an inappropriate scene. My 32 year old male boss was engaged in a sexual in nature ordeal with a 17 year old female. I was asked to transfer to a store further from home, considerably. Both were to remain at the store. I was punished for coming to work early. I left the company due to the fact that my morals did not align with what I witnessed and how I was given no consideration. I need to let you know that our company was bought out by another company, the main boss retired and many long time employees left. This incident happened two months after.
I do sometimes regret my decision because opposing the morals of a company doesn’t pay the bills. I have looked for a job that was able to financially support me. It is difficult to do so with a felony record, but I have plans to go back to school and get more training and education to obtain a higher paying job. I have taken to dumpster diving not only to sell items I find but to take care of basic needs food, clothing, feminine products, hygiene products, etc. I fell behind on my car note for two months after always paying on time. I racked up almost 80k miles on my Chevrolet Spark, I called it my go cart. Great car for the purpose and maintenance was affordable. I had a difficult time by the end of this last year, many things were needing to be done brakes, tires, wipers, check engine light on, ABS light came on, etc. I finally found a job that was able to pay bills and with a second job i could get myself out of debt. I made arrangements to get my car note taken care of, made a payment. I was told I was not a candidate for repossession, and not to worry. My car was repossessed on Friday at 4:30am. If I don’t have a vehicle I cannot take care of myself. I am currently seeking employment for remote positions and have two interviews. But I am scared Ill be homeless and will lose everything. I am asking for help with anything like food, and help to get my car back. I was emailed an offer to make a payment plan with them and once the $941.00 is paid I can have it back, anything will be much appreciated. I am very embarrassed this is my current state. Thank you very much for taking the time read this.
I can provide proof of the car and its current state in regards to repossession. I am unable to resize the two other picture of my account to post. I can provide if asked through another channel. I also sell on a few apps, if you would like to help that way please ask and ill give my usernames for them.

Help Keep Our Livelihood Going(Car Fix)
My wife and I are looking for assistance getting out car fixed. We are currently in a real tough spot with bills and rent, and our only means of getting money at the moment are delivery services(Uber, Lyft, Amazon Flex, and Spark). We are both looking for regular jobs but haven’t had any luck yet. The delivery apps have been keeping us from being completely in debt but just barely. Something is better than nothing, though, so we don’t complain about having to hustle until we find something stable. So our car is our life line right now. Bad part is, the car’s wear and tear has hastened in this time. We just had to buy better tires, get the oil changed, and fluids checked. We were told the back brakes and rotors needed to be replaced but we knew we couldn’t get that done anytime soon. We thought we would be alright for a little while. That was five weeks ago. We ended up getting bad gas a couple of weeks ago and problems have been popping up since. Check Engine light has come on, engine hesitation, and horrible gas mileage. We thought that after a few new fill-ups the bad gas would be gone and things would be better. No such luck. All the symptoms are still there, after six fill-ups, and now air is filling up in the tank. The car “farts” when we stick the pump nozzle in. From what we’ve read, that’s a EVAP problem. The other symptoms, from the bad gas, could possibly be solved by having the the Fuel Filter changed. We really need to get the car checked out by a professional for that side of things, though. The brakes have started to squeak now also.
So many problems have piled on at once and we are looking for just a little help. We are asking for funds to get just the back brakes and rotors changed and to get the car checked out for the other problems. We were told that the brakes and rotors would be $575 for parts and labor. It will cost another $135 to get her checked out. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Bless you and thank you.
In Urgent Need of Transport
To whom it may concern.
I am a 25 year old male living in South Africa. At this point, I am begging for money, because I have nowhere else to go, nobody else to ask… and I feel absolutely hopeless.
I am attaching a picture of my engine that needs to be redone, a payslip and a banking statement to show that I really am broke, broke, broke:
I make about 9500 USD per YEAR (Original Payslip currency in ZAR), or about 7 or 800 USD (10500 ZAR) a month. It is obvious to any normal human being that this is almost nothing, and that it is impossible for a person to survive and thrive on this. At this moment even, I have ZERO Rand in my account.
Now, I am coming to Begging Money, because my 2004 VW Polo is in urgent need of repair and maintenance, which I have never been able to afford without sacrificing many other things. I NEED my car to travel to work and back, but with crazy fuel price hikes, terrible inflation and having no family or friends to depend on for financial support, I have put all of the money I can into my car, with the sad part being that I have gone hungry many nights, that I have had to go without soap, without toothpaste, without heated water. If I could just afford to have my car fixed properly, my life would be so much easier, as I will be able to afford other necessities as well. I wouldn’t have to walk in the scorching 40 degree Celsius sun, I wouldn’t have to live in a home without ventilation… I wouldn’t have to wear the one pair of shoes I own every single day of my life …
I am asking for money to fix my car, so that I may afford electricity, a bed (which I also don’t have, apart from a thin blowup mattress at this point), some food and fuel for the month for a change. It will cost me about another 500 USD, so that is all that I am asking for.
I am a hard working individual who has worked every single day of my life almost since the age of 16 for tips and peanuts, and it has really left me behind. I travel to work and back every day, but here it is dangerous to walk 10 kilometers to work. The public transport system is also not functioning so well either. Even though I am a working man, my life has been horrible, having lost my parents a few years ago, having to move hundreds of miles from home for a simple job with a small income.

My dream car needs a new engine!
Hi my name is Elleni,
I’m fundraising as a last result to try and salvage my car.
Unfortunately the engine blew in my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited leaving me with nothing but a car and insurance payment to keep up with.
I didn’t buy a car for the longest time, I didn’t mind getting by using my work van to go places, besides I had other obligations to take care of at the time so a car was never on my mind, that is unless it was a Jeep Wrangler, I was always telling my friends to let me know when they see a good deal. About a year later my buddy calls and tells me they just got this new Jeep in and it would be perfect for me, I go in and fall in LOVE!!
I’ve loved Jeeps since I was a little girl when I saw one topless with no doors for the first time, as a child I found it so badass! I was offered to only pay what the company bought it for soooooo the jeep came home with me that day!
Life was going good with my new dream car I loved making small upgrades to make it feel for my style! I got this old rusty front bumper that I sanded, primed and spray painted to bring it back to life, you can see it in the photo its good as new! From there I went on to change my lights, back bumper, also some cosmetics like handle inserts. That’s it I was done and pleased with all the work I put into it, thinking about putting a 3” lift and some new tires in the far far future, I was ready to roll for now!
Pandemic happened I lost my job and was doing everything and anything for money, I grew up on constructions sights with my father so I started painting peoples houses, installing wood floors, house cleaning (grew up helping my mom with her old cleaning business) and was doing DoorDash/Uber deliveries to survive and pay my bills. I’ve always had great credit, after losing my job I racked up $5,000 on my credit card and here is where the rat race begins. I went on to start my past career on my own subbing out my time for work doing what I use to for the past 10 years that I had my job, I was 17 when I started there, losing that financial stability was very difficult but they say you have to reach rock bottom sometimes to see your come up. Since then I’ve done nothing but work on myself and my mindset, taught myself about credit, financial literacy, life. I’m dedicated to not be in that kind of situation again
Back to the jeep, after losing my job while still being in this rat race my lovely Jeep gets hurt in a ice storm. I was leaving my home that morning and started driving down the hill to the main road, not realizing all the streets were ICE I tried to break and slow down and was just picking up speed as I was going down, I started slamming on the horn beeping so people knew I was coming, I saw the ditch on the other side of the street where I knew I was going to wind up if something didn’t happen, I’m finally at the bottom and pass the crossing street (thankfully there were no cars passing by) I begin to turn the wheel to the left and I was finally at a holt when first my front passenger slams into the curb followed immediately after by the back passenger side slamming into the curb, phewww we made it, I didn’t hit anyone and my car luckily turned in-time to not go up and over the curb, after my steering wheel was no longer straight, it was actually turned to the left now to go straight and it felt funny. I didn’t even go to work, drove home having half my car on the grass and the other half on the street, it was the only way to get anywhere. Needless to say I needed to get all new tires, tire rods, and some other stuff that broke during the accident, I was able to get a “Snap Credit” that paid for my $4,500 worth of damages and allowed me to pay $250 a week until it was paid off.
6 months later my Jeep starts smoking and I pull over to check my engine coolant, oil, and for any leaks, there was a puddle of liquid under the car so I had it towed, and waited for a diagnosis. When I picked up the phone call and they started explaining the situation I got visible chills all over my body (to the point my partner saw and asked if everything was okay) I didn’t expect to need a whole new motor. That day I got it towed to my house and asked some mechanic buddies if they can come take a look, they said it didn’t look good so I got it towed to my trusted mechanic where it was confirmed it needed a new engine, got a quote of $7,500 installed and out the door. The years for my warranty were still good but starting my own business and using my own vehicle I definitely put on a lot of miles so I was over on the miles aspect of my warranty so its no longer active. Thought about selling but I still owe 16k on it and I’d still need a new vehicle.
My hope is that people will read this and just want to help out, maybe others have been in this sticky situations before and now have the means to help,
it’s a little uncomfortable to ask people for help but that’s what a community does and I know there are people out there that are willing so I thank you all in advance! With the knowledge I’ve learned about financial literacy and the struggle of life I would love to hep others not get in these kind of situations and if there are any mentors on here I would gladly listen to any knowledge you have.
Thanks so much for reading my story.

CAR FINANCING TROUBLES
Hello, my name is Liz Apisaloma and I am 28 years of age. I would like to firstly say thank you for taking the time to read about my struggles. I am a Stay At Home Mum to my only daughter of 15 months named Agnes. My partner works 40-50 hours a week to keep us afloat, but unfortunately when unplanned and unprepared we weren’t aware of the consequences and the lack of knowledge and preparations towards owning a car.
We work for a lovely family in the farm and they have provided us with a house that comes with the job and bought us a car as we were just starting work and could not afford a proper car as we were burrowing a friend’s car until we had worked enough and saved up enough to buy a new and reliable car.
This had all happened when I found out I was pregnant therefore made it impossible for us to save as I was in and out of work because I was really sick during my pregnancy. We live in a rural area so an SUV was suitable and safe for a child, my boss had kindly offered to buy us a car with their choice and for us not to worry. It was the most generous thing anyone has ever done for us so we were quite stoked and very blessed at that moment. They ended up purchasing a Mercedes SUV which was unreal as I’ve never driven or owned anything that expensive. We kindly tried to decline but they had already bought it off Trade Me. My heart was full and I was in awe as to how these strangers can treat us better than our own families and friends. With all that being said the car was okay to drive until a year later we started experiencing more and more problems with the car. We started having bills on top of bills and knowing very well how expensive they’re going to be.
Unfortunately as much as we want to ask our boss but we feel like we’re pushing our LUCK. They have done tremendously a lot for us.
We are currently paying off some of the previous jobs done on the car a few months ago which cost $2,000+ luckily the mechanic understood our situation as they have other regular customers using this payment plan of a minimum of $100 per week till debt is paid off.
Alas it still didn’t solve the ongoing problem with the engine, the work they’ve done the past few months didn’t solve what was wrong as the car was still having problems with power and accelerating up a hill. We live in a rural are so we’re faced with hills everytime we’re on the road. I had taken it in last week Monday only for them to finally find the problem which was the Turbo, as seen on the photo I have attached. To my surprise I never realized how much money it would cost but I knew one thing for sure that we’re just about reach pass our pockets to grab nothing but soil as we literally have nothing.
The cost for a Turbo part and an Alternator came around $5,000+ and the mechanic had asked for half the amount deposited in order to get the job rolling. We are stuck in mud now since we cannot get an approved loan because we both have bad credit and pastering families and friends are out of the options as we moved away from the toxicness of the city. Yet here we are feeling barricaded that we don’t know where else to turn to.
I am even ashamed to be writing this post because everyone knows me knows that I have never asked for handouts and I was always willing to give whenever I know I can give. Words could not express the gratitude I have for your kindness.
Therefore I kindly ask for your help please, one day when I’m working again I’ll be sure to return the favor to someone else who is in my shoes today.
