This is the car that my mother drives. A car that used to be good when she received it as a gift from my grandmother 15 years ago, but is incredibly bad now. Not because it is bad as a car, but because it is old. Its current value is about EUR 500, or $600 for those who read from the States, but the problem is that my mother needs to put twice that much per year into it just to keep it running, as everything is falling apart now that it is 22 years old.
My father has been, is, and probably will always remain a financial asshole. He’s got his own business, drives a tuned S class, but gives almost nothing to her or me, even though I live alone in another country. Only my sister gets to benefit from his financial status, as she still lives with them. My mother is a teacher and, unfortunately, teachers get almost minimum wage where I come from, so she barely manages as it is, therefore she can’t save for a new car. This is the woman who brought up both me and my sister, who raised us, taught us morals, values and kindness. The woman who stuck with my father just because she knew that way there is a hope for us to get a head start in life in terms of money, and hope now seems to be gone. The number of sacrifices she has done for me I can’t even count, but whenever I can I try to support her as much as possible. Unfortunately as of late I have not been doing good myself, I have accumulated EUR3000 in debt (about $3400) because of health issues, documents for my stay abroad, rent and some necessary spending like a new laptop after the old one completely died.
I always try to do it myself, but I am in a very hard position now and I just can’t help her. I’ve asked friends and family to help with no success, so I turn to you, good people of the world! If you’ve ever been in a tough situation where you need a car, please understand her position and my desire to help her! That woman deserves to ride in a Bentley for all she’s gone through for me and my sister. I can’t provide that for her now, but anything I could I’d give to her, so please donate as much as you wish and as much as would not put a strain on your life as well. I will be incredibly thankful to any of you, regardless of whether you donate a dollar or a thousand!
