I have read some of the fundraisers on this page, and my heart truly does go out to all of them. I myself have found myself in some similar situations and am beyond blessed to have made it out of them to be here today. I will also say that I am not in dire need as some of these others are so I want to make that perfectly clear before anyone donates. I am just a hard-working mama who is struggling to get by and sure could use a kick start. A car, without having to do the kick start to be exact.
My name is Danielle and I am trying to raise $3500 for a new car! I am a 30-year-old mother of one amazing 5-year-old wild child. She started kindergarten this year and really inspired me to do something I have been wanting to do for a long time, which is go back to school myself! And I have done just that, I enrolled in an online school (not sure if we are allowed to name that) and I am studying for my Bachelor’s of Science in Liberal Studies in the hopes of being able to use my degree to get a job doing social work. Now, before school, I signed up for all the grants and scholarships I could, because to be be honest, everything that wasn’t going to be covered right now, was going to have to be covered by taking out student loans. I did get a good bit of money from my FAFSA and so on but it definitely didn’t cover it all.
I have cleaned houses for as long as I can remember whether it be full time or on the side of another job that I have had. Usually though, the other job I had didn’t require the use of my own vehicle as well. Well, with school for me and school for my little busy bee baby girl, it was hard finding full time work that worked with my schedule and still actually allowed me to SEE my child and be home every now and then. So, I had to get creative and find something that would work. In comes the paper route. I deliver papers for about 2-4 hours every night in the town next to mine as well as my 3-4 houses I clean. Lottttttts of driving. Now in comes good ol kickstart..Not! I wish I could tell you exactly what was wrong with this old beat up piece of crap (2001 Buick sable) but to be honest I have no idea, she’s more temperamental than I am. Sometimes she drives just fine, sometimes I can have the petal to the floor and barely get any acceleration. The back lights come and go as they please even though I have changed the bulbs numerous times, and the windshield wipers.yea..they aren’t so good either.
I am raising money to get behind the wheel of a safe and dependable car! I want to be able to get to point A-Z and all the places in between, without having to worry about breaking down, worrying about the weather because how hot or how cold it is, because the air and the heat have long since left. I want to know that this road to success I have worked so hard to create, can actually be traveled on! If you think you can help this mama vroom vrooming on the pathway to the rest of my life. PLEASE DONATE! Thanks so much for listening and have a blessed day
