Hello everyone! I am a 20 year old full-time college student here. I commute about 50 miles roundtrip to school everyday, and the old car I had finally went out on me. I’d been saving up for months to upgrade to a newer vehicle that would be more reliable for the amount of driving that I do. Well, I finally saved up enough money, and with some help from my grandmother purchased a brand new 2020 Honda Accord Sport! I’m super proud of it since I worked almost everyday to save up for something nice.
Well, not even days after I brought it home, someone at my school hit the side of the car while trying to park in a garage on campus. A few days after that, a deer ran out in front of my car and cracked the bumper, grille, and headlight. And a couple of weeks later, a car backed into the back corner of my car in a parking lot while I was at the grocery store. Seems too crazy too be true, right? But unfortunately this really did happen.
In all of the years I’ve been driving, I’ve never damaged my car, and when I finally work up enough money to get a new one, it gets all messed up. I’m just really sad to see something that I worked almost everyday for while juggling school get messed up, and none of it was my fault.
I received estimates from several local body shops, and its looking like the damage is going to be around $5000 all together. It would take me so many months of work to save up that amount of money especially while trying to finish the semester. I currently work as a DoorDash driver since I’m unable to work on campus anymore due to the Coronavirus shutdown. It’s looking like I’m probably going to have to DoorDash everyday from now on if I want to get it fixed anytime soon.
So while I am working towards the repairs, I would really appreciate any donations given. Thank you so much in advance! God bless!
