I am in need of car to get to and from work to keep my job. I have lived a life that has taken my savings from me. I have a daughter that got hooked on drugs. As a parent I did everything I could to save her from that world she was in. It has financially token a tool on me. I have been using a friends car to get to and from work they need there car back. I have not got the chance to save money all money went towards help for my daughter. I live paycheck to paycheck. I would like to keep my job to rebuild myself back up. But with out having transportation I won’t be able to. Fighting the drug world is very hard and stressful on your life. You will do anything to try to say your child. And from me trying it has left me living check to check. She finally is getting the help she needs. It’s been a long 4 years. Over the 4 years trying to help her and keeping up with credit cards I had to chose as any parent they would chose there child. Now that she had gotten help I reach out to GreenPath and they worked a plan with me to help get my debit paid off. So as of this time due to credit I just can’t go get a loan. I am trying very hard to rebuild my credit and savings and I know it’s not going to happen over night but I also know that if I don’t have a job I can’t pay my debits or rebuild my savings. Anything will help towards getting a car and would be appreciate. paypal.me/zam200
Hello, my name is Brandon & recently I feel on hard times & lost my job about 4 1/5 months ago, as the company I worked for decided to have layoffs. Unfourtantly my reconciliation department was affected by this & along with a few of my peers we were let go after 5 years of service to the company. Over the past few months, I have been chasing leads & things look on the up & up as I recently was hired by UHG. Having faith in god & trusting his process has helped me & my wife maintain, & stay afloat these last couple months. I start my new job this month on the 17th (super excited) to get back in the workforce. I’m here as a last resort to help me keep my car until I am fully able to catch up. I’m unsure of this website legitimacy, but I feel like God lead me this way in my most desperate moment for a reason. So i will continue to have faith. I know its a long shot but hey hopefully its worth it. My Beautiful wife (of 3 years, 8 years together) & I share a dodge challenger, as a door greeter at Walmart my wife salary cant cover the note & pay rent. so, of course, we decided to pay the rent. but losing my car would be a major setback when all I’m trying to do is to get ahead for my growing family. Growing up I was taught you work hard & never complain cause life isn’t fair if you got lemons to make lemonade. I believe in working for everything you get.
In Ephesians 4:48 it says “Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need” I’d rather lose it all then to embarrass, my wife, mother, father or my son by doing anything illegal so I really hope someone out there can help me reach my goal 622 to pay my car note & hopefully once I start this new job on the 17th, things will start looking up for Me & Little Family. I have high aspirations in life, just an unlucky guy who fell on hard times. From my mouth to God’s ears, I really Hope this is worth it.
with love Brandon
I am sure you hear all kinds of pleas but please hear me out.
Life is not fair and I understand that but starting 10 years ago when I was the victim of domestic violence my life has spiraled to below the bottom of the barrel. At the time it happened my now ex-husband and I were living in a house owned by his mother. After it happened she asked me to move out because the only other option was him at her house. Being too low on self esteem and high in respect I did so, and having no means of support bad choices involving manipulative unsavory people kept me going down.
I live in a friend’s storage on his property. I struggled for a couple years just to afford a laptop to make some money on line. I am fortunate to receive $250 a month in back child support and I do not get any government aid or food stamps. I have no vehicle, no way to get back and forth to a job and there is no public transportation here. I live several miles from town in a rural community.
I am extremely motivated. I am 52 and alone except for my friend and his girlfriend who are kind enough to let me stay here free but that is the most they can do. My ex paying the back child support is 20 years my senior so any month that income could abruptly end without warning so I need to do something ASAP.
Someone gave me a car that has been sitting for a few years after it was in an accident. Someone did the body work to it to make it functional again. What I need is about $1000 to replace the fluids (gas, oil, brake, transmission, etc), the belts and tires (which have dry rotted the years it sat) to get a battery and get the car registered and insured. Hopefully that would also leave some gas money so I can find a job and be able to get back and forth to work.
Living in this storage has helped me work out my issues stemming from years of abuse and neglect as a child. I learned that I don’t deserve to be abused and should not put up with it. I want the next relationship I am in to be out of want and not need. This time here has been good for me in many ways but I am ready to move on.
Please help me to help myself.

I am in dire need of help. My car needs $2600 worth of repair and I cannot afford it at all. I’m still paying on this car and can’t even afford the note this month. The past 5 months have been the worse of my life and if it wasn’t for my kids I’m not sure what I would do. They are definitely what’s keeping me here. I now realize that I am seriously suffering from depression and no matter how hard I pray or try to move forward something always happens. I was previously living in NC, working and paying my bills until my daughter ran away (ran away with a “bad boy”). My daughter is 16 (turning 17 Friday) and my second child is 8. My daughter would help with my younger child after school until I got off of work. Well when my daughter ran away not only was I dealing with trying to locate her but I had no one to help with my son. I was having to leave work early and take days off. My job was understanding at first. The first time my daughter was gone for 8 days and found by police with the boy. I thought everything was fine and 4 days later she ran away again, this time for a month. Again she was found by police with the boy. In May because I missed so many days of work going to the police station and juvenile court I was terminated. Realizing I needed help with my teen, I decided to move to Delaware and send my daughter with her father’s family in NJ. I drove my daughter to NJ (so she wouldn’t be able to run away again) and went back to NC to finish packing and move. I had my final paycheck and unemployment to move. I started looking for jobs before I left NC so that I can have something in place. I actually had an interview set up for the day after I got to Delaware. I had to rent a truck and tow dolly on my credit card because I couldn’t afford cash. I maxed my credit card but I had to do it. The entire time my teen was in NJ and I was in NC we were in contact and she seemed to be okay and understood why I did what I did. When I arrived in Delaware it was late and couldn’t move in my apartment until the next day. That night I received a call from my daughter’s family stating she wasn’t in the house. My daughter once again ran away from NJ. I later found out that this same “bad boy” drove to NJ and got her as I was driving to Delaware to try to start over. I was so distraught and didn’t even know where to begin.
The next day I had to drive to NJ to file a report however when I drove my car off of the tow dolly there was a loud scraping noise, the abs light was on and my back wheels were unstable. This led to me not being able to drive my car so I couldn’t get to Jersey and I still had to move in my apt. Fast forward I wasn’t sure what happened so I filed a claim with Uhaul. My vehicle has been sitting at the Nissan dealership since July 9th, 2018 with $2600 worth of damage. They are not sure what happened to my car but think it’s because it should’ve been in neutral. However, when the employee hooked my car up they told me to put it in park. I had no clue that was wrong. Fast forward I have no transportation, had to cancel my interview and haven’t been able to find work because nothing is close enough or on bus route. The insurance company for Uhaul just let me know August 2nd that my claim was denied because they are not liable. My insurance won’t cover it because it wasn’t comp or collision. Nissan is giving me to Friday to approve them to fix it or I have to move it from there lot and pay the $90 assessment fee. I don’t have anything. Nothing at all! I really need my car. If anyone can help, please help me. I can pay you back with my taxes, I know that months away but that’s the only time I’ll have any extra money. I understand there’s a lot of people going through a lot but I just thought I’d try. Any help or resources is greatly appreciated. If anything, thank you for reading!
Last week, the transmission in my car went out… While it was parked I cancelled the insurance, so I could put the money toward repairs, as they weren’t covered under my liability insurance.
A few short days later, someone skipped the curb at our apartment complex and slammed into my front end, bending the front left axle, before tearing away into the night. No cameras at our small complex, and no witnesses as it was extremely late/early.
My credit isn’t terrible (650) but I haven’t done much to build it, having struck out on my own as the recession hit and being paranoid about credit in general. Because of this, I’m unable to secure a loan. And even with a cosigner, that I can’t find, the terms are too steep for what I require and I’d be destitute before I could raise the money, being without a car.
I also work at a sod farm that doesn’t do Direct Deposit, so it disqualifies me from most online “desperation” options, which I HAVE pursued.
After consulting with body shops, the total came out to about $5400 with the transmission and collision damage. I rounded the total down, as I’d feel bad not paying at least something and $400 is no small number for me.
For $2000, I could simply buy a halfway decent vehicle and use that as I work toward repairing the other vehicle. So this is an option, as well.
I appreciate your consideration. For perspective, I came up rough and I’ve been grinding for the past 12 years to keep from spiraling back into that life. Before this, things were looking pretty great. I’m real proud of myself for that, and my biggest anxiety is my life falling to ruin over this. Uber’ing and lyft’ing to my job isn’t an option, as it would eat up half my pay to get there and back.
I have a few rescue animals that I would hate to have to relocate and genuinely nowhere to go but to a shelter should my income drop any more.
I really have exhausted all other options, and would appreciate the help. Thank you.
My kids and I want to say thank you for taking the time to read about our situation and are humble to seek this help.
My name is Sonya and I have 3 amazing kids by a marriage that did not work out. State Laws do not give step-parents any rights for support or care of kids in a divorce. My kids choose to stay with me most of the time. I am a 20-year retired Navy Veteran who just can’t say no to kids or “we” can’t do something. My son Junior is 10, sister Serenity is turning 9 and our babygirl turns 3 Aug 13. I do not believe in spoiling kids and am a stern driver for discipline!
My request to seek help comes from getting an oil change recently and learned my 2007 suv needs a new exhaust manifold gasket, a valve stem replaced on a leaky tire, and warn fan belts replaced. I am also moving into our own place, instead of my parents basement, so the kids can have their own room and not have to when they see me. I acquired over $10,000 in debt from the wedding/marriage and cannot seem to get ahead with my only vehicle repairs and couldn’t afford my own place at time of divorce.
I do work at a local cafe owned by my mom’s friends, however they are a month behind on paying me because they are expanding their bar. No excuse and probably illegal I know, but it is a “they help me I help them situation.”
As a financial advisor in the military I could steer Sailors and Marines out of debt all day, but as for myself i seem to be starting to sink for the first in my life. I only pray I am not the bad lesson my children have to learn from about living at our means and not our wants. Regardless of the success with this website or yourself reading this, I know together we will survive.
Gosh, I don’t even know where to start. I didn’t think I would be writing something like this today, or rather, ever.
I’m a twenty-year-old self-taught computer programmer in college.
This is going to sound like a sob story for a hot minute, but please know, that isn’t my intention.
July started off like any other month for me, I’m sure for everyone. I wish it would have stayed that way… My mental health bills and medication are outrageously expensive especially without insurance because for some reason its impossible to find reasonable insurance. My job was primarily to settle that problem. It allowed me to pay for my medication and get a few groceries every month- but that was about it.
I knew about an ongoing issue with my car, it was running out of oil so fast all the darn time, without any sort of leak. My dad says it was due to being an older car. (2006 ford explorer) But never did I expect it to just explode one day. It always warned me before, the light would come on, and I put oil in it. Every few months I had a full oil change. This time, it happened so fast I didn’t even get a light. Within 2 weeks of putting oil in it last, the motor took a dump– while I was going 75mph on the highway on my way home from work– that was fun…
Everyone was fine- considering I was the only one in the car- I managed to get it off the road and out of the way. My family “car doctors” took a look, and over the next week, we tried every method possible to revive the poor girl. It didn’t work.
Within a week, I was working out a ride to work the next day when my manager called to inform me she had transferred my contract to someone else. I knew my meeting was scheduled to be renewed in October, but for some reason, she pushed it forward because some other worker needed a transfer from somewhere else in Florida, and-
Never mind that, that is a long story. Essentially, there was nowhere for me to transfer so I was terminated, along with my work partner.
If it wasn’t for that moment, I would not be here writing this today. I would be working and putting all of my earnings towards the car.
But now I don’t have a job, I’m stuck with availability due to schooling, without a car.
Alright- step one. Get a job.
nope- wait, can’t do that without a car.
Step 1. Get a car.
nope- no way- that’s too expensive, plus I completely own this car and it cost way more than it would for a new engine.
Alright! Step 1! Get a new motor.
The best price the “car people” in my family could pull up is a $1,475 motor being sold.
I have been applying for job after job, 15 or 16 a day. (On the massive job finding sites)
As well as at the actual companies and main company websites. (such as Walmart, Publix, etc.)
I have heard little back, and its honestly degrading. I’m running out of time, seriously. My emergency medicine money for my mental health is on its last use (unfortunately its medication that cannot be stopped suddently, or else I strongly considered just going without)
My family cannot provide assistance more than support and a day to borrow a car here and there. We all have financial stuff going on, I don’t hold it to them. I don’t hold it to anyone, actually.
One thing I would like to stress is, I’m fine. Somehow with all of this, I am managing to keep my head on straight.
That being said, I need help this time. I have been pulling all-nighters searching for a job, talking to people about options, coding programs to try and sell, anything I could think of.
The only thing I could possibly ask for is help with the motor. Just the motor.
My brother has offered to do the labor, and as for the spark plugs and belts I’ll probably need- that’s my problem.
The funds i may receive from this would ONLY be used towards the motor.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, thank you for even making it this far.
Anything would help, truly, anything…
Hello everyone. My name is Pam Neronha and I am a former whistleblower in the drinking water treatment field. This happened to me a decade ago in 2007 when we experienced the economic downturn, and I was approaching my 50th birthday. I was highly successful in my career, but when I spoke up regarding the public health and safety of three cities’ drinking water we were providing, my career turned a corner. I won my case against my former employer but was never hired again by a public agency. I went back to school to earn an MPA, and even this could not get me a job in either the public or private sector.
So, in 2015 I decided it was time to start my own company to try and help the public understand where their drinking water comes from and how they can better control what flows out of their tap and into their showers. I also wanted to protect the public from events that may happen at their public utility without them being aware, utilizing new technology.
I won a full scholarship to an MBA program. I will now be completing my final semesters this fall and in 2019. I founded the company on August 10, 2016. It is called Pluvion, Inc. I have been struggling to get traction for the company, to support myself and to get funding to build and launch the first prototypes. I moved the company from San Francisco to the City of Mount Shasta, California to afford rent. With another catastrophic year of wildfires burning here in our state, my technology is needed more than ever. I am committed to the company and have put at least a third of my savings every year into its maintenance, while living on $21,000 a year in California. I am very close to launching the two websites and obtaining the data from consumers.
Here is how you can help me. I need $825 to pay for an air fuel ratio sensor for my 2007 Toyota Prius which now has 239,000 miles on it. I am looking for help to pay for this expense and keep my car on the road. I lived in this car in the Bay Area while starting the company prior to moving to Mount Shasta. I was not able to attach an image of the bill from Toyota since the image size and type is not supported on this site. I can provide a copy of the estimate for the part at your request. This car repair is only one of the three hurdles (the other two hurdles are dental work and books/lodging expenses for school), I need to cross before launching. I would greatly appreciate your help.

I don’t even know where to start. This is the 1st time I have ever really put myself out there for help. I live in Charleston, SC. Over the past 3 weeks it has rained everyday non-stop & the humidity generally around 82%-99%. As you can imagine this is hard on the AC Units. 2 Weeks ago my 2004 vehicle AC when out. I can handle the heat but the humidity is another struggle. In addition, my mother is on oxygen & lives with me. I ABSOLUTELY could not have her out & about with no AC. So I took it to my local pep boys who quickly identified that the electrical problem. No power was getting to the switch for the AC. They advised that they are unable to fix it & would have to take it to the dealer.
So I called the dealer. The dealer advised that the diagnostics alone was $150. Yes, that’s right $150 just to determine what the problem was. What’s a girl to do. Pay it. So they told me that to fix the electrical would be $550. I asked if that would fix the AC. The mechanic advised that it should.
Surprise!!!!! It didn’t :(. So they further inspected it & discovered that a part of the blower has malfunctioned. So yup, that’s right. It needs to be replaced. The part literally costs $67 but the labor is the kicker. $484 later I have AC.
Well this Sunday comes & I walk into the garage & see a puddle of water on the ground. My heart drops. I shimmy up into the attic to look at the AC unit. Water is soaking through the insulation. Great! The AC is blowing warm air as well. This had to be fixed immediately. My mother on oxygen can’t handle this. So yup emergency, weekend call! Damage $1100.
It’s the 1st of the month & you guessed it. Mortgage of $ 875 is due. What’s a girl to do? Ask strangers for help. I have spent over $3000 in 2 weeks that I don’t have. Any amount is a blessing. Thank you for your time.

Hello! My son just started at a community college, which is about an hour’s drive from home. He is finishing up his first summer semester and doing spectacular. Unfortunately, our car broke down this summer. It’s not a new or fancy car. It’s 12 years old, but in decent shape. However, wear and tear has worn the poor thing down. It started to overheat when idling or driving through traffic, which is even worse in crazy, hot summer weather. I wanted them to check the brakes, too, since they seemed a bit spongy at times and I wanted to make sure he would be safe driving. Unfortunately, it turns out that the old dear needs new brakes, an engine fan, and a new motor for the window (it got stuck down and then the window motor died). It will cost $755.53 to fix. I have attached a photo of the estimate.
We are a family of 6 with very low income. We have two little ones still, ages 5 and 6, and another son who is 16. My husband just finished his bachelor’s degree in December and is finishing up a few necessary classes before he heads into the medical field. We live in a very small town, with no organizations that can help us. We have a very tight budget that leaves no room for extra expenses. I pick up as many spare jobs as I can, in combination with our normal income and we still barely scrape by. I want my son to be able to focus on his education and not to worry about how he is going to get back and forth. There are enough things to worry about when we grow up and start having to do the whole adult thing, without having to stress over cars and repairs while still in school. It is difficult to find the money to help him out with gas, books, and other necessities, let alone pay for major repairs. We just fixed the brakes on our 15-year-old truck last month, so our saved funds are already depleted. One the pains of owning older vehicles, I know, but they have been good to us for many years.
If you can donate anything towards helping fix the car so he can continue with his education and not have to stress over the money, we would be super excited and eternally grateful. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it!
Last year I purchased a 99 dodge dakota from a family member, I made the mistake of assuming the truck was in decent condition. Shortly after coming into possession of the truck I learned it was missing the fuel filler neck, which I intended to replace asap, but then my headlights went out and that became priority.
Shortly after the headlights , the brakes started acting up, going out randomly , losing pressure. Which turned out to be a brake line coming loose, then 2 tires went flat, then the brakes straight went out, all of them, the pads the master cylinder the rotors, the lines. Oh and I forgot to mention that I bought it with a missing blinker too, and rusted out fenders. At first I thought I was getting a good deal and helping someone out at the same time, now I realize I bought a massive work in progress that I cant afford, because I bought it so I could get to work and possibly make some extra cash helping friends or using it to haul scrap metal.
The engine and transmission and all electrical work great, but I cant seem to ever afford fixing it after what little money I earn goes to my bills and necessitys. If anyone can sympathize and is in a place to help, id be much obliged and forever grateful. I dont expect much help in general , but thought it was worth a shot and wouldn’t hurt to try. Thank you for your time.
Hello, I am looking for help funding a safer vehicle for my 7 year old daughter and myself. I have a 1986 Jeep Wagoneer that will be the death of us if I can’t find a new car soon. I have found a vehicle that is safer, has low miles, and is only $4,000.00.
My Jeep has no exhaust system, large holes in the floor board, and no shoulder strap seat belts in the back seat. Recently, my daughter and I ended up with carbon monoxide poisoning after I had to drive for 2.5 hours running errands.
The lack of proper seat belts in the back seat are hindering us from being able to upgrade my daughter’s car seat to follow the laws and standards. She should be using a booster seat that uses a shoulder strap seat belt. But currently she has to continue using a 5 point harness car seat that uses a lap belt to hold it in place.
My daughter was recently ill for almost two weeks, and we had multiple ER and doctor visits. This has made us strapped for cash. We are a single income family, and raising the whole $4,000 is impossible. I’ve put my Jeep up for sale, and I’m hoping to raise at least $2,000. So all I’m asking to fund is another $2,000 so I can purchase a 1992 Chevy Silverado extended cab pick up truck with low mileage, brand new tires, and a new exhaust system.
Thank you for your consideration, and any help we are so grateful for.

Hi.. as of may 2006 my life changed. My body split. I couldn’t feel my upper body extremities. My arms were moving fast but I couldn’t control them. My head was moving fast back & fourth. I couldn’t look into anyone’s eye with focus. Just couldn’t control anything dealing with my upper body. Yes. It’s was hard to even explain what was happening to me. I carried this problem for almost 10 years. The doctors claim I had to be in pain also. I told them I didn’t realize it was pain. It had began common. I actually thought it was normal, what I was feeling. So I dealt with it. It seemed like every doctor I had went to see. Made it like it was just in my mind. Either that or they looked at me like a crack head. I couldn’t control my upper extremities from shaking. Sometimes I didn’t realize I was shacking. Ppl started to tell me I was shacking apart. Finally I found a doctor who ran test still not finding anything wrong. Didn’t give up on me. They did a extreme 2 hour body exray/MRI/ ink test & found out my neck was broke. My neck was hanging on by a thin bone. My family & collapsed. How is this possible. Every one (doctors) I send from Nebraska to KC MO and no one find it. I was told that it was so bad. That if I fall wrong I would of been paralyzed from the neck down. Every time I think about the doctors who called me crazy or a crack head. Left me for dead. No one believed me, no one. Anyway I’m a walking talking mircale. Thank God for my family. & The doctor who stilled by me. I receive disability, it help to pay rent, electric, & phone. I’m not on housing. I try to do my best for myself. I have two therapy animals. Ones a corgi his been with me for almost 10 years, such a loving dog. I have a cat just turnt 2 years old. Love them both. But money is low. I’m looking for help to fix my car. I pay $120 for it. I can’t afford car payment at all. So I bought it out right. It needs some work. I thought I I could have it done 3 years ago. But it sit. I’m hoping someone could help. It needs a battery, spark plug wires 6 plugs , 6 fuel injectors. & Now 4 tires. Anyway. I don’t own anything. But what I do have I make sure to keep clean. My mom is 76 years old. I would like to be able to get around to help her as much as I can. And to be able to drive to see and help her would be awesome for us both. Anything anyone could help with or donate would be truly appreciated. Thank u for reading my story.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I want to say first of all, this is not because I want to, but I need to ask for help with past due rent and desperately needing to get 2 cars fixed. I was brought up the old school way, where you do whatever you have to do to make it and have what you need, which is a trait that I picked up from both of my parents.
The reason is because my wife is having to take care of her sick brother who is in hospice with chronic kidney disease and congestive heart failure. Because of that, as my wife has taken over as legal guardian over her brother, she has had to quit her job to take care of him, and in turn, I have had to cut back hours from my job in order to help her and with everything around the house. My wife and myself had a significant amount in savings that we had been building up, as we had built up a year of money in the savings account, but with my wife now not working, and with me having to cut back my own hours with responsibilities at home, we have been using the savings and checking accounts to pay bills with the weekly pay check bringing in little to nothing more to help. We are diligent in budgeting, but the budget has only gone so far when everything keeps piling up. Before this happened, we found ways to cut over $300 in our monthly payments, which helped add to the savings. Now, not only is my wife upset and stressed because of her brother’s health, now we have the financial situation pilling on top of that.
When my wife and I were working full time together, we were always on time paying bills before she had to take care of her brother. Now, months after depleting our savings and checking by paying bills first and getting gas and groceries for the house with only one income coming in, we have got behind on our rent and other bills. With my wife having to drive back and forth to see her brother every day to help take care of him because she is his legal guardian, her car is past due for breaks and tires, as well as a standard oil change. I use my car to drive back and forth to work everyday, and it needs tie rods, and wheel bearings, as well as new tires. The cheapest quote that we could find for having these repairs is around $1,500 for both cars. We are already one month behind on rent, which is $800 a month, with another month due soon.
If anyone on here knows all too well, once you get behind, it is difficult to catch up, especially trying to catch up on one income. I have done some side work for people when I have had the chance, like cutting grass and whatever odd and end jobs anyone needs for extra money, but it’s been really difficult in finding the time to even try and do that. Not only am I looking for help to get ourselves out of a bind, I am looking help with how to get out of the financial situation that we find ourselves in. My wife and I talked, and we want to do something together that can bring in a good amount of income. We want our money to work for us, and not have to work for money. I say that to say that my wife and I, we are not freeloaders, and we are not people that just want money for free, and we do not think we are entitled to anything. We are here just to ask for help in getting out of this pit that we found ourselves in, and the help in not letting this happen to us again, where we will be able to help others that are in need due to no fault of their own. We now understand, that life happens to everyone, and everyone needs a helping hand from time to time until they can figure out how to thrive and teach others. Do we need help right now, yes, but we don’t want to be dependent on others, we want to know how to fish so we can make our own meals, and feed others in the process. Thank you so much for your time.
About 3 months ago my mother got into a car accident where everyone is completely fine and no one is hurt. But the cost of that is paying alot of money for insurance. My mothers car is completely destroyed, and it wont ever start back up again. It’s the only car my family has. My mothers job is almost 2 hours away from us and she drives to work everyday and comes back home every night. For the last couple of months my mothers auntie would be so kind and give my mom her own car so she doesn’t miss a day of work. It’s also kind of sad because her auntie needs her car too but she is super nice enough to figure out a way to not use a car in her daily life while my mom continues to work. It’s unfortunate that these things happen. My mother had to pay a $123 towing ticket and $5500 of insurance ( she only payed $1200 out of $5500 so far). About $4300 would be enough to cover the insurance. If thats payed for, my mother would be saving money for a used car. My father works too but he pays the rent and bills while my mom would pay for food. I would love to help my mother since she is considering buying a used car because it would cost much more to fix the car than to buy a use one. And one thing is, is that I am truly grateful my family and I are healthy and happy. But this car situation heavily put us down these last couple of months. I don’t even know if writing this would help but lets give it a try. Less headaches for us. Thank you for your help. :) PayPalMe/samidaud
Hello, I’m a 20 year old college student just paying off debt while still trying to sustain my everyday life cost. When not in school I live in a smaller town with scarce job opportunities. I know a car will open me up to so many more job opportunities and possibilities here in my town and even when I’m off at school. Not only will it help me get to jobs but I’ll finally be able to get around on my own in general. It’s been really frustrating relying on people, public transportation, Uber’s, + etc. just to get around everywhere and even more frustrating working a minimum wage job trying to save for a car, but unable to currently because everything just goes to school and things I literally need to sustain myself like food. My mother has her own debt right now so it kills me inside everytime I need to lean on her for money knowing that she’s already sacrificing so much for me and I’m sick of it. I don’t need anything fancy AT ALL! So I’m asking for $2,000 just for a decent and reliable car because that’s all I need. I feel as though that would greatly benefit me more long term rather than just asking for my tuition money. Thank you guys so much and I appreciate you if you even took the time to read this.
Peace and Love. <3
To the caring, kindhearted who have established this site. May God bless you all.
Most of my life I’ve worked 2 jobs and since the beginning of 2016 I’ve been blessed to find temporary positions here and there. I’ve struggled like many do and somehow I manage to keep going and never give up.
i lost one of my sons struck by a drunk driver. I couldn’t face it or did I want to and got lost in a dark lonely world of drugs. I was saved by the Grace of God and with help from others started coping. I had a great job and nice place. Then I met someone who I married quit job for moved and spent two years being abused mentally and physically. I was terrified and felt helpless. Im thankful that someone called and sent help. I’m a survivor and he went to prison which left me responsible for paying all bills. I ended up filing Bankruptcy and packed up and came home. This last 3 years finding a job has been a struggle, but as of 3 months ago I GOT one. PTL. Well my drive to work is a half hour so not bad until my transmission went out t last week. I am a proud person, but if anyone can help I’d be so grateful. I just don’t have 3300.00 and anything would help.
Thank you for your time
I’m asking for a donation, so I can get back on track. I work hard and live check to check. I’m never able to pay bills off at once so things tend to get backed up, because I’m only able to pay the minimum to get by. Problems continue to just rise and its one thing after another. My car is on its last limb, there’s a leak in my gas tank so I have to drive everyday smelling fumes from the gas, also my breaks are going out and my tires are bad, and the starter. That alone is $600 just to get my car back in good condition. Secondly me and my son has needed dental work that has been pushed off because it is just to expensive and not many places offer payment plans. The dental treatment alone is about another $1000, it makes me feel horrible as a mother knowing my son is in pain but not able to pay to get his teeth fixed. With everything so backed up I cant even afford to by food or put gas in the car to get back and forth to work. I know if I could receive a donations I would be able to get things taken care of bills paid and my son taken care off. I’m a hardworking good person just in need of a little help so I can continue building a stable foundation for my kids. I do hope someone is able to assist anything will help. I’m able to provide any documentation for the expenses I need help with, thank you!!
Hello, my name is Heather and I’m a mother of two and the wife of a hard working man in the trucking industry. My husband, bless him, purchased me my first car that had a air conditioner and was super new to me two years ago! I had never had such a wonderful vehicle in my life, I’ve always bought drive it until its scrap cars. I really love my car and I am really grateful to have it. In September of 2017 the check engine light came on and I have not been able to put together the money to get it completely fixed or legal since, but I keep it insured. I cleaned out our meager 401k to get one part replaced and drive it back home so that my husband could get to back and forth to work.
The nearest dealership to me is a four hour drive, I live in the Midland/Odessa part of Texas and there are no shops here that will work on a Mini Cooper, even BMW said they’ll get in trouble if they scan the fob for errors. I have to take it to Arlington to get it worked on.
I’m looking to get help in one of two ways. If I can get the car paid down to 8,100$ I will no longer be upside down on the vehicle and I can refinance for a much better rate and be able to save money much more efficiently. Or if anyone would be willing to help pay for the repairs it needs outright that would be a blessing to my family. This is the only vehicle we have and is very important to our daily life. I do not like driving around illegally, but I have to do what I have to do for my family. Thank you very much for reading!
Hello! My name is Terrance Jones-Daniels, but I go by TJ. Since November of last year I’ve been out of work due to mental health issues and just trying to figure out who I am. As of October of 2017, I’ve been a trans guy, and working towards making sure that I can live my best life. Unfortunately, my mom left the area we were living in in November of 2017, and I was laid off from my job shortly afterwards, due to 4 mental health hospitalizations. I’ve been struggling with depression for a while, and have been in an out of hospitals since June of 2017. I’m currently working on getting my life back on track, but, unfortunately, it hasn’t been easy. After my mom left I lived by myself, and then with a previous significant other, and when we broke up I relocated to El Paso with my dad. He’s been pressuring me since I arrived here to get a job, and get in school, and get my own place, and I’ve been trying. Unfortunately, my phone has been shut off, my car is in danger of being repossessed, and I can’t drive my car long distances due to my rim being cracked. My dad isn’t able to take me to interviews, because he goes to school from 8-5, Monday through Friday, and he won’t let me drive his car, unfortunately. I’m just at a hard point in my life, where I feel like no matter how hard I try, nothing is truly working to benefit me, but, I refuse to give up. To have my phone turned back on, I owe $400-I’m a couple of months behind on my bill, the cost to replace the rim is $200 and my car payment is $350.Please help out if you can, and thank you.
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
