I need a new car for work and school and have no other transportation. It broke down on me. My Transmission is completely out. I’m already struggling to make my bills. if i could just save up 2000 for a down payment, it would make my life a whole lot better. I work two jobs trying to pay my bills. I was expecting it to last at least another year or two. I had no money saved up at all. I didn’t even know it was going out. If they could be anyways i could have been able to know, i would have tried to get it fixed sooner. I live about 30 minutes away from my job. i make about 9 an hour at 1 jobs and 2.25 at my second job. I’m trying to do better at life and get my life straight and go to college but with everything happening at once it seems like it is impossible. if someone out there would please help me get enough money to just get a new car or a used car at that. i would be happy. i want to be able to go to college so i can become a social worker and help kids out. and for that to be able to happen, i will need a car. My mom and dad aren’t able to help me out with the situation at hand or i would have never posted on this website. I’m the type of person who hates asking for money. I’m always the type of person to work hard for my money and things i get. I’m the type that will help someone out when they are in need. It is impossible to do that at the time though. I will have to ask people for rides and find my way back and forth to work till i can get a car. I will be having to probably ride a bus back and forth to work also. If anyone out there has even 20 dollars to put towards me getting a car, you will be grateful appreciated in my mind. I hate having to ask someone for money but to be able to go to work and school, i will need a car. and this would be my way to be able to have a car. My paypal information is https://www.paypal.me/kaylarogers1296. I would truly appreciate anything giving to me by anyone on this website.
Hello to you reader, my name is Stephen and I’m finding myself in s pinch over a vehicle I purchased earlier this year. Go back to December 27th if 2017 I was involved in a car accident that thankfully I survived. I was driving from working third shift and hit a patch of ice and ran into another vehicle going south as I was going west. It was the only car for my wife and I. A few weeks later we found out we were expecting our first child. After almost 5 years of trying to conceive I was convinced I could not have children. And go figure the year I do get this blessing I have no vehicle. So I borrowed cars from people who didn’t work the next day (being I worked third shift) or asked for rides daily. Until I saved up $2,000 to put down on a car. I’ve always had a bad run on used vehicles not from a dealer so I thought my best chance would be from a dealership. Well the only dealership that could give me a loan with what I was putting down at my credit put me in a 2012 Volkswagen CC. So I purchased it at a ridiculous apr ar 24%. $11,000 for a 7,000$ car. But I felt I was unfortunately at no other choice. So I purchased it. Well the vehicle was a front car and during a plowing of the road a rock impacted the windshield and cracked it. The dealer needed to fix it before selling it and took days to get the windshield fitted. When I got the vehicle I drove it to the gas station to fill up and when I did the car did not start up after filling. I got it started after 10 minutes and took it to the dealer. They then said there were no issues with the car it was fine. Well the car that didn’t just start on me says otherwise. They refused any help because they weren’t a “Volkswagen authorized dealer”. Well I drove the car out of the dealer fine and next I went to get gas a week later it happened again. It turned out there was a recall for the fuel pump on the car that had been pending for a little over a year that had “no solution”. So every time I got gas I’d have to jump start the car. Well finally it crap out on me and I had to have it towed 40 miles to the nearest Volkswagen dealer. They replaced the “faulty” fuel pump with a new one but with the same part that faulted out. So it drove until the actual recall came out months later. Well then my car started telling me there was no engine oil pressure. I had changed everything that it could possibly be except the oil pump and the whole motor. So I was told it was the oil pump. So I save up 1,000$ to fix the oil pump and no solution. I’ve had it to shop after shop and they all say the same thing. The motor is shot. All while I’m paying 450$ a month for the car that I had to have to help keep me employed. So all the money I can save up for a second vehicle goes toward my payment for a car I can’t drive. I’m just hoping someone out there that can relate feeling stuck like this and is willing to help. I just want to pay the turd off and get rid of it.
Thank you for taking your time to read. And thank you for any donations.
Hi, my name is Arianna and I am 18 years old. I am a freshman year college nursing student. I am paying for college on my own. My parents do not assist me in paying for my tuition, books, or supplies. I work 30-40 hours a week to pay my bills and go to school full time. The only thing I do not pay is rent as I live at home with my mom, although all I truly am ever home for is to sleep, shower, and change my clothes. I received a lot of scholarship and grant money but I still had to take $5500 out for the year in loans. My car is falling apart and is my only mode of transportation. The brakes need work. I need new tires. The check engine light comes on and off regularly. The inside door handle is broken on the drivers side. The drivers side seat is stuck in its current position and the car is as old as me. I have put a decent amount into the car but I can not afford to have an unreliable car between my classes and working. I can not afford the insurance for a car with a car payment so I am saving up to buy a newer car in full but I do not know how long I have until my car dies out on me. I could really use the assistance to buy a new to me car so I do not end up stranded trying to get from point A to point B. My goal is to buy a $5000 car with no more than 150K miles on it and no older than 2005. I have some money put away so far but far from enough. I can not work more hours than I already do and maintain the GPA necessary to maintain one of the scholarships I received which pays for a good deal of my tuition. I have been saving but at the rate I can afford to save it would take me more time than I have left with my car. I believe I will need a new car by March but I know I will not be able to get enough money saved in time to even come close to be able to buy a car that did not have all the issues I am having with my current car. I appreciate every donation in advanced and thank you !
My name is Amanda, and this has not been a stellar year for me so far.
Starting in December, I got into a car accident that totaled my beloved Honda Civic. (Roof was caved in and would have cost $8-10k to fix – car was worth $3k in perfect condition.) My dad was able to find a car to fix it up for me – that cost me $2,000 I didn’t have.
A month later, my health insurance changed, and I went from having to pay $0 a month, to $200 a month.
I switched to my work health insurance, to get a lower deductible (the first deductible was $2,250, now it’s $750) but it costs $60/paycheck, or $240 a month.
Got the new car, but the wrong sized tires were put on the car. One tire blew out on the highway and I had to get a whole new set – that cost me $500.
Then, I hit a HUGE FRIGGIN CANADIAN GOOSE – cracked the heck out of my windshield on the car I’d only had for a month and was still trying to pay off – that cost me $250.
Then, my dad said, “can your little brother live with you?” and then essentially gave up any responsibility for him, meaning I had to pay more for gas to drive him to and from school, pay for more groceries, etc. He started college in September. I had to shell out $400 for textbooks. He got his license. I have to shell out $250 extra for car insurance because he’s an 18-year-old male. He needs a cell phone – that added to my cell phone bill.
The AC in my car crapped out and I got a hole in one of my tires at the same time back in June – that cost me $600.
I wouldn’t usually ask strangers for money. But my dad won’t put any money towards paying me back for what I’ve helped my brother with. I have bills coming out the ying yang. I took out a personal loan to consolidate my credit card debt and more and more things kept coming up and the card is almost filled up again – on top of my huge loan payment I make every month.
Any little bit would help. I’m drowning.
Thank you in advance.
Crack windshield that needed to be fixed – the crack came all the way through from the outside to the inside.
I’m currently a sophomore at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. I grew up in Texas and I played a lot of sports so I never worked a real job. I recently just worked this past summer at Academy Sports + Outdoors and I’ve been saving up for a vehicle. I have 2000 dollars in my savings account right now. The vehicle I’m trying to buy cost $13,966. It’s a 2007 Jeep Wrangler X in an Army green color. I’ve always wanted a jeep. My parents would like to help me but they can’t because they also have to help my other sisters not to mention pay their own bills. My parents have never made much but they always made sure I was good. I really want this jeep and I’m all out of options. I’m about to start working again but I need this vehicle first to get to and from work. If you’re reading this I could really use some help. My credit isn’t great so I’d like to put down a big down payment so I’m asking for 8,000 dollars to use as a down payment. I already pay my own phone and credit card bill so most of the money I have saved up goes to those bills and grocery shopping. This would really help me out a lot. I can’t qualify for any auto loans or personal loans because of my credit score. It’s low because I don’t have anything in my name. This is the exact reason why I just got a credit card. Once I obtain this vehicle, I can continue working on building my score and I’ll have a job. I currently can’t complete work study because of a financial hold that I have on my account which I also need to pay for on my own. Like I stated before, I don’t know who else to turn to because it’s kind of impossible to ask family for $8,000. Everybody has their own family and bills to worry about which is why I’m here on this site. I’ve been trying to do all of this on my own because that’s the only way it’s going to happen. This post is literally my last resort. So please anyone who reads this, thanks for reading and thanks for helping if you can. Paypal Me link: paypal.me/desschu
Hi. My name is Jay and I’ll be upfront with you: I need money to help me with getting repairs for my car.
Last year, I started an non-profit organization and I drive throughout the city to help provide services like educational and occupational training to adults who otherwise wouldn’t have those chances because unfortunately, they closed the adult education center here. My car is literally my life line to the city, and having been down without it for the past couple of months has been creating a strain not just on me, but also on my family, and the people in the community at large. It’s hard to be a service provider when you have to keep trying to arrange a pickup or a drop off via a family member, friends, or paying for an Uber or a Lyft ride.
I had a friend of mine call the guy that she takes her car to, he gave my car a once over and said that it needs major engine work, and also a new exhaust system because the one on there now is old and starting to rust out. All in all, he said that the repairs would estimate to around $5,000 at a shop or more, because it’s all parts that would include actually repairing the engine intake and exhaust systems, and my knowledge of cars runs out at performing the basic tune-up, so I wouldn’t even begin to know how to break down an engine! I can’t even afford to have the car towed to a shop since I work off of donations from whatever folks can afford to pay, which normally isn’t a whole lot.
BUT…I need my car desperately, because without my car, I can’t do my job. If I can’t do my job, I fail myself and those folks who believe not just in me, but believe in the idea that people like us can change lives through compassion, and caring. I just need my car back, and I really need someone to help me get it repaired. I’d ask my mom, but she’s 73 and her SSI isn’t much. I can’t ask my siblings because all of them are going through their own situations-same as my friends. I don’t have the strongest credit, and I’m trying to rebuild it- so having a car that is out of commission has thrown a pretty big monkey wrench in the works. With my car running, we had two running cars at the house. Now we just have the one and I desperately am trying to get my car back working so that my mom isn’t doing a lot of driving- especially at night.
I believe in the work that I do, and I also believe in paying it forward, so if you can find it in your heart to help me get my car the repairs it needs, then not only will I be able to help provide services again, but I also won’t have to worry my mom about where I am or if I’ll make it home at night, or bug my family & friends about trying to get a ride.

To whoever is reading this;
Hi, I’m currently a 19 y/o full time community college student taking 15 credit hours and I am financially independent but currently in a spot of trouble.
Unfortunately in the past year and a half, I have been continually hit with misfortunes that have now left me looking at some serious trouble.
To begin I will start with my own health.. I have 4 wisdom teeth coming in, and they are all going completely sideways and eventually will impact, and with no insurance there is no way I can pay for the operation to have them removed. I am not sure how long I have until it becomes urgent for me to remove them but I would really like to remove them in the near future.
Financially I am seriously beginning to drown. My car which is my main means of transportation keeps having issues that have been costing me money since I bought it less than 2 years ago. I wish I had gotten something more reliable but at this point I have too much invested to even sell it. Today I discovered oil leaks on the ground and suspect it may be a rear main seal or a oil pan gasket failure. I have spent over 7000 dollars trying to keep this car running and it has now run me dry. I need it to get to work and school, I don’t know what else I can do about it. Furthermore, I pay for all my own expenses, I have car insurance coming up ($1100), as well as bike insurance. ($400) (I bought the bike to save on gas, it is not a supersport bike, it gets 66mpg and is much cheaper to insure than my car.) Unfortunately I managed to low-side the bike recently while commuting to school in the rain, and I have not had the funds to repair it since. (I had also dropped it earlier in the summer and that had cost me a pretty penny as well, got butter fingers I guess)
Here is a screenshot of the car repair spreadsheet I have been keeping up with since owning the vehicle (It is missing some items I have lost receipts for however):
Currently I am actually in debt, (less than 5 dollars in my checking account, with a credit balance due, and only 200 left on the line itself), quite the opposite of where I’d like to be since I know I will soon have to worry about covering the cost to transfer to a full-university to finish my degree. I don’t even go out or waste money on non-necessity’s, I simply end up losing all my money on bad luck. I go to school from 9-2, and work from 4-10 everyday. I don’t know what else to do because I simply don’t make enough and can’t find a second job without jeopardizing my grades.
I really wish I didn’t have to ask for money like this, I hate to be a burden to anyone. It would really mean the world to me if I could just get some help in my time of need though, I don’t even have family to turn to because of a whirlpool of issues there involving divorce, grudges, etc… I know that there are some very nice people out in the world, and I’d like to thank the kind person who is here right now for reading what I have to say.
If you’d like to help me out, I would apprecite it so soooooo much… paypal.me/zorikos
Hello Ladies and gentlemen,
My name is Veronica. I hit a deer on my way home driving down Pacific Coast Highway. When I suddenly saw the deer crossing the street I maneuvered to the right to avoid hitting it. I couldn’t hit the brakes because I had a line of cars behind me. I hit the deer with the front left side of my car. I panicked and screamed in horror thinking I have killed it. My ten-year-old daughter got so scared and sad for the deer too. This has never happened to me. The front bumper and the plastic trim broke. I think it’ll cost to get fixed around $500. I need to buy the bumper myself, have it paint matched, by the plastic trim, and pay for installation. If I let the body shop do everything it will cost me more money. I just can’t do this anymore. This past April my car got vandalized and I had to pay $1,000 deductible out of my pocket. A month later I suffered an ectopic pregnancy and fallopian tube removal to which my insurance didn’t cover everything and I’m already making payments to pay that off. This is the first time I asked other people and strangers to help me. I work hard for my stuff and to provide for daughter who also needs my time. I feel like I have bad luck I can’t help but think what’s next. I appreciate your help and I thank you in advance. God bless your hearts.
(I forgot about the PayPal link the first time I made this post)
Thank you for taking the time to read my request. I never thought I’d be on the internet begging strangers for money, but here I am.
First, a little about me. I’m 25 years old and am in my 3rd year of teaching elementary school. I’m enrolled in grad school so that I can further my career in education. A year and a half ago I had absolutely no debt. I worked full time through undergrad and didn’t take out any loans.
Fast forward 3 years from graduation and I’m now swimming in debt. Mostly because my roommate bailed on the lease and I’m having to pay double the amount I planned for, and also because I made some stupid impulse purchases and travel plans.
The debt itself is not the issue, as I can buckle down and find a new apartment in order to pay that debt off in 2 years or so. The issue is that my 10 year old car is very quickly reaching the end of its life and I can’t afford to replace it AND pay off my debt.
So, I’m on here to ask for help. I’m looking to save up around 5-6k for a decent down payment on a used car. That way I won’t have to take out such a huge loan with a high interest rate.
I am REALLY trying to get back on track because I know racking up debt was stupid and I’m learning the hard way that it doesn’t just affect your credit score, it makes a lot of other things difficult as well.
If you made it this far, thank you. Any donations helps, even if it’s just prayers.
