I had a total knee replacement 1 year ago and in March I found out it was infected. The surgeon had to go in and take out the artificial knee and put in an antibiotic spacer that will stay in for 4 months along with me having to give myself antibiotic IV through a pick line for 2 months. I have a 10 year old son and a wife who counted on me for financial support. At my job that I have been with for 15 years I was just 2 weeks away from 1 month vacation but the company refused to give it. Me and my wife worked and saved for 10 years in order the purchase the house we just bought in February. No me not being able to work is probably going to be the end of all we have because we have No one that can help us. We reached out to the government but they cant help. I am 49 years old and I have been working for 33 years and the government wont help. I am not a free loader and it does hurt my pride to ask for help but I have to for my wife and son. I am a man that cant provide for his family and it is very hard mentally. It is really hard to look at them and not want to break down and cry. I am reaching out to this site hoping someone will see that their is a good father and a good husband that needs help right now and will open up their heart and help. Please help me so we don’t end up homeless. I just don’t know what else to do or where to go. Thanks for your time. Imagine watching your child go without. It really hurts me mentally..
Emergency Rental, Food, and Bills Assistance Programs
How to get help with rent?
At times, many families find themselves homeless, or unable to continue to occupy the premises of their choice. This may be due to fire, accident, storms or many other causes, but often it is merely a problem in paying the rent. Illness that forces a breadwinner to stay home, or loss of a job; any and all of these conditions can put a family in need of temporary assistance to tide itself over until the members of the family find themselves again in a position to pay their own rent without the need of subsidising or other rental assistance.
Agencies have been set up in many parts of the country to help in this regard. Non-profit organizations, these charities, such as The Salvation Army, as well as some governmental agencies are often able to offer emergency rental assistance for families who are being evicted by a landlord, or who simply have no way to pay their rent at the moment. Realizing that landlords, despite the old cartoon imagery of a rich greedy person feeding off the work of renters, the vast majority of landlords are not really making a profit at all on the current tenant. This is only a stopgap so that the landlord may pay the monthly house payments in the hope of some future profit if housing increases in value some years later. If the tenant can’t pay the rent, the landlord may soon find himself in the same position with regard to the lender. Lenders do not want to hear sad stories.
Although these different programs for rental assistance may be available, much depends upon the funding at the moment. Some programs quickly run out of money and are simply unable at the moment to provide further help to persons in need of assistance.
The vast majority of families in need of temporary rental assistance are those to be found in the low-income range; seniors, disable persons and children are among those most often affected. Others too, faced at one point or another with a temporary emergency may qualify for assistance in these cases.
In most cases, those in need of longer-term assistance, persons who have not been gainfully employed for a considerable length of time with not prospects for the immediate future may not qualify for rental assistance under these temporary emergency programs.
Those more likely to receive aid are persons who are able to convince interviewers of their willingness to do what is necessary to get back on their feet along with the ability to do so. Since emergency funding is considered a short-term “fix” for a crisis situation, the grants may be only issued for a few days, perhaps to defray the cost of a motel room, pending the applicant’s ability to find other lodgings.
Therefore it is important, in most similar cases, for the applicant to show the interviewer the imminent possibility to become self-sufficient.
Most non-profit agencies as well as other agencies attempt to work closely with rental assistance applicants to help them with any additional support as needed depending upon each applicant’s situation. Often applicants are further given counseling and referrals to other agencies that may be more helpful to an applicant.
In such cases, any additional services rendered are free to the applicant in crisis. This may include lack of employment and such other problems that may arise such as medical emergencies. Most agencies participate in these endeavors as well as teaching applicants the processes involved in applying for governmental programs, immediate rehousing and how to apply for Section 8 vouchers as well as information about low income housing, and assistance in paying the security deposits that are almost universally demanded by today’s rental market.
Since the goal of all similar agencies to to render aid to persons in immediate need of emergency housing and other crisis situations, the funds issued to applicants for rent or other necessities is only meant to allow the applicant extra time to deal with the emergency. However, at the same time, applicants will normally be provided with support in the long term to guard against similar future emergencies.
If you have an eviction notice or expect to be unable to pay the rent in the immediate future, or even realize that you need to find less expensive living quarters, now is the time to apply for assistance. Often with early application, money may be available to catch up unpaid rent as well as other options that may be explained to you.
Assistance may also be available to help with the security deposit, the initial rents and even moving costs. In some cities non-profit agencies may offer other emergency assistance to those in crisis. These funds are normally paid out on a one-time basis. Depending upon the location, resources that may be in place for housing crisis families can be wide-ranging.
Potential applicants are advised to find the telephone numbers as well as any other information available to them and educate themselves about the different programs that may be able to help with emergency assistance.
Not only non-profit private agencies, but many governmental agencies, are able to provide interim assistance, depending on the locality. Massachusetts has a program called RAFT, while in Texas a rental assistance program called TDHCA is available. Florida has a similar program called EFAHP and in Connecticut their program is called RAP. Many other government programs around the country also offer assistance to pay rent or a portion of overdue rent in their ongoing efforts to reduce the growing threat of homelessness in their particular communities.
Another program, called the Federal Stimulus Program is a little-known program through which our federal government provides billions of dollars across the nation to provide rental assistance for qualified applicants. These funds have become invaluable to families that find it increasingly difficult to keep up with the rising costs of rent and other housing needs.
HUD the Housing and Urban Development, agency works throughout the country as well. A number of families approaching two million are able to use this program, a program that can not only help those in need to pay their rent and/or security deposits, but HUD can issue vouchers to provide temporary housing as well as providing assistance to senior citizens and the disabled to keep up with overdue rental payments.
These programs not only offer grants to help pay rent, but the government Rent Voucher Program aids applicants to seek housing in the privately owned housing market.
These agencies can, generally, offer legal advice to those facing eviction. Every year millions of people receive free legal advice and assistance to educate them with the eviction process and their rights as well as responsibilities. The government provides funded Legal Services Corp. which provides attorneys who may mediate a solution between landlord and tenants in addition to advising tenants of their rights as well as help them apply for Section 8 or other assistance and another positive aid they offer is help and counseling on housing discrimination.
Counseling may also be provided to help applicants apply for government and/or private grants. Money is available for many of these crisis situations.
It is the goal of these agencies to prevent evictions wherever possible. The federal government as well as the many non-profit private agencies strive wherever possible to help applicants remain in their current quarters without the fear of being summarily evicted. Often these agencies are able not only to prevent evictions, but subsequent lawsuits that may be brought against a tenant. Alternatively, the agency may be able to find more suitable and affordable housing for an applicant facing eviction.
Many churches too offer funds that can help those in short-term financial difficulties. United Way and The Salvation Army are only two of the better-known charitable institutions that may be able to offer help when needed. Generally they give priority to those living in apartments and facing short-term financial crises.
A good number of other national and local charities are ready to help with the expenses of rent and other essential needs as well as providing case management and many other social services. No all charities have ready money all the time, but even those may be able to help by helping an applicant with information about other resources and assistance in applying for free grants to pay overdue rent.
Other agencies that often provide help might be, for example, Catholic Charities, Social Service Offices, United Way, the American Red Cross, the Legal Aid Society and as mentioned earlier, The Salvation Army. Aside from these examples there exist many other emergency aid agencies for those who are able to become informed.
While most of these programs provide only short-term emergency aid, they are designed for the most part to tide a family over until a longer-term solution becomes available. Often these same agencies will be able to direct qualified applicants to resources that may assist them in finding an apartment or house for more permanent security.
It is important however, during these times of crisis, to keep in touch with creditors and the applicant’s current landlord so they understand what you are doing and what you expect to accomplishment. It is important that the applicant be extremely honest with everyone about the situation and it may sometimes be possible to have monthly payments temporarily lowered, or even be allowed to skip a monthly rental payment. Other plans may be devised and put into place to avoid being evicted.
It is well-understood that not only landlords but other creditors too are much more willing to cooperate with persons who are up-front with them, honest in their discussions and show a willingness to cooperate and do whatever they can to improve with situations.
How to get help with bills?
Ask The Energy Company
if energy bills are the source of the hardship, then the energy providers’ own in-house programs are often the quickest way to help rearrange and meet repayments.
LIHEAP: Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program
This national program’s focus is on subsidies for repairs, weatherproofing and utility bills that families cannot afford to pay.
LIHEAP covers any energy related home repairs for low-icome families, including seasonal expenses like air cooling systems and winter heating bills. The local LIHEAP office is the first point of contact for those in need of energy or utility assistance. Eligibility varies from state to state.
WAP: Weatherization Assistance Program
The WAP is a federal grant organized by the Department of Energy that helps needy families improve their homes’ energy efficiency, and has assisted over 7 million households across many states, territories and Native American tribes since its inception in 1976.
According to the DOE guidelines, a household with anyone over 60 is eligible for the WAP, as are legally recognized disabled people. Most states make families with children eligible, and the website for the WAPTAC (Weatherization Assistance Program Technical Assistance Center) can advise others if the grants are available in their area, and whether they qualify.
LifeLine Assistance: Free Cell Phones
Americans in need of a cell phone plan but without the means to maintain one can get assistance from LifeLine Assistance‘s free phone program. This is indeed a lifeline as daily life and business in particular is practically impossible without a mobile phone.
LLA is an FCC mandated scheme offering a free cell phone with at least 250 monthly minutes included. It’s available in the 49 states, Washington DC and Puerto Rico, and typically requires a household income below 135% of Federal Poverty guidelines. For some states it is below 150%. Eligibility varies across participating states, with slightly different rules around qualifying income.
Other sources of help are available at state government level, or many national and local non-profit and charity organizations, and the energy companies themselves.
How to get Food For Free?
It doesn’t always require money to eat, and there are many ways to gain free food without adding to your debts or joining the 10% of Americans who have resorted to shoplifting. Ask people you know, or traders and restaurant and store owners.
Above all it’s important to explain why you are asking for food: because you can’t afford to eat. And not to be critical about what food you eat. Without a certain amount of money, there is no longer the choice of what to eat. So meat may become harder to get or if meat’s all that’s on offer and you are a vegetarian, it’s best to accept it with thanks.
Grow Your Own, Share With The Community
The most sustainable – and satisfying – way to provide free food for yourself is to grow it, and you can start with just seeds if you live in the country or with just a small space in the city. Guerrilla gardening is an interesting urban option, more organised community gardens and allotments can share space and expertise for growing, and seed swapping communities among gardeners are a good source of materials and encouragement.
Ask A Farmer
Out in the sticks there won’t be the option of stores and restaurants as a source of food, but ask any farmer and there’ll be some left on the fields that they didn’t or can’t sell. Many will let you pick these leftovers.
A rapidly growing movement in the United Kingdom and US is the organized and charitable distribution of food to those who can’t afford it. Most of the food is donated, and food banks are one of the easiest ways to obtain some nutritious food. Many banks have conditions for who they can give food to, but there is no need to be ashamed about visiting one.
Links to Food Banks in various countries
Offers and coupons
Online and direct from the stores, many coupons are available to promote new products. And companies across the United States send out free samples of new products. They’re unlikely to provide a healthy, balanced diet on their own but could supplement free food from other sources.
In an affluent country there is an abundance of unsold or waste food, and a little social interaction and resourcefulness can unlock access to a surprising amount of it.
Ask at the market
Often around closing time, stall holders will sell off any remaining stock for next to nothing, and it’s always worth telling them you have no money and asking if they’ll give you something for free. You can often pick up some fruit or salad, and if they can’t offer anything, thank them anyway and ask at another stall.
Free Supermarket Food
Ask at the big stores and you’ll be too far down the chain of command: “My boss doesn’t allow us to do that” will be the usual answer. So smaller supermarkets and neighborhood stores are a better option, where you can talk to that boss. You may find warmth and generosity among Muslims and immigrants to the West who run stores.
It requires some patience, a little nerve and a bit of practice, but it’s possible to get free, professionally prepared food, even a table to sit and eat it at. Restaurant districts in cities are obviously the best place to try this, and expect a success rate around 5%, so it requires persistence, but will sharpen your bargaining skills, and who knows where else that could lead?
Turn up at a restaurant after the busiest time but not too late, and explain that you have no money and ask if they have some left overs in the kitchen. It can help to have a container such as a plastic box ready in case they do have something, and if they’re friendly and can’t offer anything the first time, maybe they can put something aside the next day.
Searching and Foraging
It grows on trees, on the ground and some seasons there’ll be abundant fruit and tasty plants such as dandelions or chickweed. Even cities can produce some tasty wild food, and anyone near downtown Seattle has access to America’s first Food Forest in a major city.
Growing media coverage of the colossal food wastage at supermarkets and restaurants has made it much less weird, and more popular, to search through the dumpsters in search of some quality food to turn into a meal.
Okay, where to start. This year I moved to New Jersey from Washington to start the collage I’ve spent the past 3 years working towards. I’ve had a job in a mall for most of the school year, but the demands from it have been taking a major toll on my school work ( I was going to school 8:30-4:00 5 days a week and then going to work right after that for several hours and would get home around 11:30 0r 12 at night).
I was stressed out and exhausted, barely making ends meet, and at risk of getting kicked out of the school I worked so hard to get to. I had to choose between a job I loathed or getting kicked out of school, so last month I quite my job after talking with my mother, who agreed to help me till the end of school. This is where things started to left field. about a week after my last day working my mother had to take medical because of intense pain in her legs making it really painful to walk. She has been off of work for almost a month. After scans were taken it was shown to be a bone tumor, test are still being done to see if it is cancer or not, but we’re really concerned because she already has thyroid cancer.
Our family is already really poor, we just got an apartment after being homeless for most of my childhood ( we lost our home when I was in fourth grade, I’m 22 now) last year. After not working for almost a month my mom can barely afford to keep a roof over her and my sister’s head let alone help me. As it stands I only have 3 weeks of school left, after which I have to move out of the dorm.
I have no savings left and cant afford food or a way back home. I’m trying to find a job or a way to make money but I’m not having any luck so far. I’m really scared and don’t know what to do, if I cant get home I’ll be stranded on the opposite side of the country and homeless this time alone. I’m not sure exactly how much it would cost but I’m trying to raise 500 dollars for food, my phone, and a ticket home. I don’t know if anyone will even see this but if anyone could be able to help even the smallest bit I am beyond grateful, I’m trying but scared I’m going to end up on the streets.
Thank you for taking the time to consider and read this.
I am a teacher who has lost everything she owns. The one thing I have not lost is faith in God and good people. I have gone through a caustic illness that drained what little income I had saved at the time. I have used up my teacher retirement paying living expenses while I found employment. My heavenly father blessed me to find employment. However, the employment found was short lived.
I have been homeless and lived in a car that was later repossessed. After the car was repossessed; I lost all my personal effects because of lack of income to pay the monthly storage fee and not being able to get to my job. This struggle did not stop me from seeking employment for a better life. I am living in a temporary place worried everyday about being put out on the streets with nowhere to go before, I get things together to relocate or money for food.
I need help relocating for this job. The Lord blessed me with a wonderful new employer. Therefore, I am calling this help a hand up. I know my situation is temporary but, unfortunately, I do not have the means to get started. I was relying on unemployment to help me with this relocation but, finding a permanent job took longer than anticipated so, I do not have any more benefits that I can draw.
I am trying to get help with a down payment on a new vehicle. One of my dilemmas is poor credit now because of lack of income, unemployment, and a repossession. So, I am unable to borrow any money and I do not have a co-signer. This vehicle will get me to my new job and it will get me to and from the job until I make my first paycheck. My second dilemma is needing money to pay a security deposit and first month or so rent on a new place until I get my first paycheck.
To get the apartment setup, I am speaking of deposits for necessity like water, electricity, telephone, internet, clothing and food. I will purchase furniture as I get paid. I am not afraid of sleeping on the floor. I just want to be normal again. I want to do what I love doing and that is teach children.
In closing please know I would not be asking for help if, I had some other place to turn. I will use all donations as stated in my plea for a hand up. I know these donations will get me back on my feet quicker. This hand up will forever live in my heart, soul, and spirit. Thank you in advance for your kindness and giving spirit.
My name is Justinas Kuncevičius, Im 26 years old and I’m from Lithuania. I would like to share my life story and hope someone can help me back to normal life. I need to get extra like 3000$ or 2500eur. to solve my bad situation a bit at least.

Thanks everyone for reading my story and really waiting people helps in anyways, all help will be very appreciate.
Never thought it would come to this. But I am recently separated. 32 yr female. Was a stay at home mom for 13 yrs. I have had to start all over again. I am a single mom. And am currently going to start school for nursing in May full time. Getting myself trained and plugged into a career. I have tried to apply for many part time jobs with no luck. At all. One interview I had but didn’t get the job :( I was only available evenings and it didnt work for them. Went to the workforce office etc. To try to figure out how to get on my feet. I am currently living with my mom. She is already struggling financially making it harder for her. And she is paying the bills while I continue my education. I have a van but need gas to just get around, for school , picking up kids and just daily errands and Dr. Appts. Currently, my “in school” debt is 3,001.00 balance owed while in school . I am asking for 5,000.00 total to cover just that balance as well as the other 2,000 for basic needs such as gas, medical, and clothing, toiletries etc. So my mom doesn’t have to worry about that part. I do have a much larger school debt because of loans but that will come later once I graduate and am able to provide for myself. This amount is just for now. ]
Any help at all is GREATLY appreciated. It would mean so much. My goal is to be self sufficient with a good career for my kids and to provide for them. But starting from scratch is tough. And after being a stay at home mom for so long and out of the workforce is really tough. My “ex” is no longer helping in this area. He did for a bit but stopped. I’ve done eBay selling for just little things for gas money etc… more job applications and nothing. It’s been really difficult.
Thank you for your time in reading this. And thank you so much in advance for any help you can give..
I am a single mother of a 5 year old boy who has had a tough go the past 6 years. It seems as though my storm started and continued to get worse over the years, but I weathered it. The past few months have been harder than I fathomed they could ever be. I thought things were getting better… I moved to Houston and I found a career field that I want to stick with through the hard times (it’s a 1099 job). As I believed everything was coming together.. my son and I moved into a new apartment. Two weeks later; everything blew up in my face. Due to some miscommunication, my bank account was frozen and all of my funds were garnished (March 2017). This caused so much panic because my first month’s rent was coming due and I had $0 to my name. I was forced to file an emergency bankruptcy. Now I’m trying to catch up on payments, so that I can ultimately switch my chapter 13 bankruptcy to a chapter 7, which cost $1,525. I am a month behind on rent, which is $1,780 and the next month’s payment (May) is coming up. I am behind on my car payments and they are threatening to repossess ($1,200). I just want to catch up, so that I can stay afloat… and I really think this bankruptcy filing will help me to start over a bit. I cannot bear for my son to see us go through an eviction.. we’ve been through so much already. So I am begging that someone help us onto our feet, so that one day I can turn around and do the same for someone else.
The total of only the amounts I put here is $6,285, so that is the amount that I am requesting. Anything helps and everything is appreciated.

Okay, so this is my story. I have always been in full time employment but last November found myself made redundant. I was unsuccessful in a new job search and had no choice but to go self-employed with no savings or capital. I’ve been trying to make a go of it and have had work but it’s not been enough to fully live on as yet and I’m now struggling to find the money to pay my mortgage this month and other bills.
I live alone and have no children (I’m a middle aged, single female) but I have three elderly cats who have required a lot of vet visits of late and are now on a special diet as two of them have early stages of kidney disease. I also have a horse, who while is fairly cheap to keep, is also another mouth to feed. I’m loathe to sell my horse as I love her very much and she has issues which would make her hard to sell and I would fear for her future. For me, an animal is with me for life and I believe in giving my horse a safe and happy home for the rest of her life. She also gives me some respite from my worries when I see her and gives me something to be happy about.
I rarely go out with friends though I do have hobbies such as running so I do get out and about. I cook my weekly meals in the slow cooker so eat cheaply. Most of my clothes are years old and I’m running out of things to sell off on EBay.
The work I do is fairly specific and whilst I have looked at full time employment, I either don’t have all the required skills they are asking for or haven’t gotten anywhere with the application.
I also could sell my house at some point in the future but right now I can’t afford to move as there are a lot of costs associated with moving. Also, my house needs a fair bit of work to get it into a nicely presentable condition to sell. Again, something I can’t afford right now.
I don’t expect to be in this situation forever. I’m getting better at my business though would never have gone into business without a financial buffer but my choice was to do this or to go onto benefits and be in a very bad situation very quickly. I’ve managed to keep my head above water so far but only just. I really don’t want to lose my house and especially not have a home for my three cats who are near the end of their life. It’s just that right now, I’m asking for help which is something I find very hard to do.
Thank you reading.
Hello first of all thank you for reading this and let me say this …this is for him…
Three years ago I went to the courts to fight for my grandsons safety. His mother my daughter was hurting him at that time he was just 5. I was giving this little boy telling him he would be safe from now on and no one would ever hurt him again. If I knew then what I know now wow I would not promised him that. But this time it’s not the hurt you and would be thinking about this is the hurt from the loosing everything. It was all taking from him.
A year ago I found a house signed the papers and was going to buy it. I took him to the house and his little face lit up like a Christmas tree. He was so happy “,Nana you gave me a home “. I started crying this little boy was so happy that I got this home. Then a year goes by him outside playing with the other kids, riding his bike, walking to the bus stop all the things little kids do. He was very happy he had a home. Then it went bad.
We put our hard work into this home, cleaned it up,painted the whole house,carpeted the bedrooms,painted the outside and all this time the landlord knew what we were doing and told us”you made this house into a home”.
But not knowing what our landlord was doing we kept giving him money every month with a promise of a rent to own and he was leaving and the house would be ours. That’s all I wanted.. but then there was a knock on the door. It was the bank. They wanted there house back. See thus man went 3 years without making a payment. He took our money and lord knows what he did with it but he did not pay the bank.
Now I had to tell my grandson he lost his home. That did not go over well at all. We had two weeks left and to pack and get out.
Now I had no where to go no money nothing so we had to split up. I took him to his grandfather’s and myself is living on the streets. Living in a truck.
I want him to have that home again and now important is the two if us back together under one roof. But that takes money which I don’t have I live off of ssdi and get no support from his parents. But all I want for him us a home to go home to. Please help him out and help this family get back living under one roof… thanks anything helps.
My name is Joana and this is the first time I’ve been in a situation like this. I am 21 years old, and I have been living on my own since I was 18.
I am studying Law in college and I pay for everything, as my parents are unable to help even though they really mean well.
Last month, my contract with the company I was working for has ended. They said they would call again, and since I really love the company I decided to wait, so I expect to be working with them next month, in May.
I explained the situation to my landlord, in the beginning of the month, and though he wasn’t happy about it, he said that he wouldn’t mind, as long as I could pay everything I owed him in a month. So I compromised to pay everything by the end of May.
Yesterday, I invited 2 girls of my class to come to my place so we could cook lunch and just relax from all the stress. We had the music a little loud, but I swear you couldn’t listen to it outside!
He knocked, started yelling at me, insulted my friends and changed his mind. He now refuses to wait a month until I can pay him the rent (350€, with bills included). He said he needs the money too, and if I had to be in debt in order for him to receive what’s his, so be it.
On top of that, I received a letter from my mobile company regarding the service I was using. Since I have been not paying, because I just couldn’t afford it, it was either phone or food, they sent me a bill of 362€.
I know I am asking a lot, it’s a lot of money. Working an entire month, 8 hours a day, I don’t earn that, so I know how much I am asking. I have begged all of my friends, but just 2 of them are living on their own and can’t help, as they live simply and don’t have much.
The rest of my friends are still living with their parents, so they don’t really have the possibility to borrow me money.
I am trying to get a second job until the end of the month, but I wouldn’t have enough money. I am desperate, I don’t know what else to do. I am honest, and I work hard. That’s all I’ve known my entire life. But for those who work the most, the work just never stops ! I am tired, hungry, … please… I beg you. I don’t know what I’m going to do… Please. Please.
Thank you for the time, reading this, every help will be appreciated . Thank you, thank you!
My name is Dominique,I’m 17 years old. Me,My mom-37,My brother Justin-12,My sister Bella-11,My two twin sisters Serenyti&Ioanna-4, and my baby brother Anthony-2 had a house down in Springfield,Ma.If you look up the news for that area you will see the violence. The amount of crime & terror me and my family witnessed is something you never forget. It got so bad living there that my little twins sisters could nit be kids. They wouldn’t go outside because they were scared,they couldn’t even go to fire works for the first time because they thought the fireworks were gunshots and that the bad guys were going to take them away. My sister Bella and my brother Justin would have anxiety about going too school because they didn’t think me and my mom would be there when they got home. After a while, my mom decided she could no longer allow us kids to go through that trama and she knew that being a single mom and having just had my baby brother that she could not get us out of their easily. Especially because of our low income. So one day my aunt came down to visit from Milton,pa and we ended up leaving with her to PA. We left our toys,our furniture,our appliances,everything. We had to start all over again and have still yet to rebut anything we lost. As of right now we live in a bedroom the size of a walk-in closet, all of us. No AC. We sleep on a futone. My younger two. Sis has respirtory problems so the eat takes the breath out of her…she goes into breathing attacks and we cannot do anything but give her the oxegen,hold her in our arms, and prey that god is with us. Its hard. It makes you feel helpless. From the time we got out here(the end of June) till now my mom has searched high and low to look for a place that is big enough and that we can afford. She cannot work due to no childcare for my baby brother. As a child my mom went through being molested by her own father. So my mother does not leave her kids with anyone. She’s very protective,which is understandable. So, we finally found a place that’s big enough !! It is a little on the high side for rent but we will make due, we always do. We managed to scram the money up to give security deposit and secure that the house is ours to rent. Now, we face the obsticle of first and last months. Not to mention, once we get that money we can move into the house, but we have nothing. We have no fridge. We have no stove. We have no appliances. We have no beds. No toys for the kids. Nothing. I have called severs churches and none of them have the funding. So we called our housing authority to check on our housing vulture to help pay a certain percentage of rent , and they said we got it they are just waiting for one to come available which should be no more then three weeks. We need first and last ASAP tho. The landlord is not willing to wait much longer. All our lives it has always been me ,my mom and mu siblings. My family doesn’t want anything to do with us because they have their own perfect lives. They don’t no what irs like to struggle or how hard it is to see your mom cry evertnight because she just wants a home for her baby’s.its hard. Its sad. And it makes me want to help so badly. I got a job working minmum wage but its not enough money in enough time. Please help us. Please help my family. And please help me get this money so I can help my mom and show her she doesn’t have to do it alone. To show her everything will be okay. Thank you & God bless.
My name is Danny. I am not proud of myself and it feels very pathetic right now to ask for material help.My story is very surprising even for myself and it came like thunder from a bright sky in my life.I am currently working and living with my mother and grandmother.The past 2 months and right now i am living by the edge with 400 euros paycheck.It would be enough for me but my mother and grandmother are not working.They cannot find a job right now so we are living the three of us with 400 euros. And somehow with a lot of limitations we have lived the three of us. Until one day on a paycheck day i did not receive a paycheck. I was surprised at first and i thought it was mistake or some issues with the bank transfer( i usually receive the money by bank account ). So i went to the bank and stayed there for 1 hour. The woman in the bank was checking my information and she informed me that my father(who i am not sure where is he now at the moment as i haven’t seen him in 10 years) has 10000 euros of debts… I was shocked at first and asked why should they block my salary for the things i am not responsible. The woman there told me that as they cannot contact him and get the debt from him i am going to pay the debt.I was shocked and asked if there is a way to not pay the debt. The women told me that it is not possible. So right now i am stuck with paying 150 euro each month for his debt and i cannot do anything.I was hardly living by with 400 euros and now i am with 250 euros to live. Me and my whole family ( mom and grandmom).I can’t even get another job as i am working in a bar everyday for 12 hours a day with no day off.
I know i must be strong but i cannot manage to hold on more and that’s why i am reaching out if someone could help me out in this hard moment.And i also apologize in advance that i am seeking for help. I would be happy with any donation i receive because i will be able to help out my family. I don’t really care about myself right now. I do care only for my mom and grandmom as they don’t deserve this life.
I am thanking everyone in advance for any donation i receive.
God Bless you all.
I have been dealing with a neck problem for the past few years after avoiding a car accident…whiplash.
This has caused me to have a panick attack about 5 times…I was doing great! Still not 100% but I hadent had a panick attack in two years until feb of this year.
I had just gotten my dream job as a Site Operator for a large development company, had passed the probationary period, was there about five months, I had quit my last job as a building manager to pursue this venture as It was more challenging and had health benefits.
We had a large flood and I was helping to move some big fans, that evening my neck was really tight, I turned my head and my neck slipped out. Didnt feel good at all. The next day at work I had a panick attack, bad one lasted about 2 hrs.
In went to my Naturopath as she was the one whom had stopped them previously….she issued me a note to limit my physical excersion for a week, I went to my chiropractor the next day and she stated my C1 & 2 were very out and was able to adjust.
My employers did not like this one bit, I was honest with them about the issue, and they let me go while still on my doctors note, refused to tell my why and just put dismissed without cause on my Record of Employment. I have posted images showing my note and last day worked.
I have thus been approved for EI, apparently there was an over payment from 2012 and now they have been deducting halve my money.
Since March first I have recieved just over $700.00.
I am behind on my rent, car payment, car insurance not to mention my credit card and line of credit payments. As I have been struggling all my credit is maxed.
I am looking for work everyday, Vancouver is an extremely tough job market.
I have been a building manager for 10 yrs and have a lot of experience with swimming pools, so in the interem I thought I would start a pool maintenance company. I used to run a maintenance company years ago, but the areas economy was hard hit after 2008.
I have purchased a domain and built a web site, unfortunatley I do not have the funds for business cards, business license, insurance and wcb which is a requirement to get large contracts with Strata Corporations.
I am a single father and work hard to keep my shit together, my daughter is just finishing up grade twelve. I have been training her to run pools as well and she runs a hot tub at my last residential building on the weekends.
My request is for some assistance so I can pay my rent, my car and insurance and get this company started. Heres a break down.
-Rent $1500.00( owed by may 1st)
-Car and two months insurance $800.00
Business licence, Insurance, WCB, business cards $600.00
So seeking $4000.00
Thank you for taking the time to read my request. At the very least I just need to get caught up with my rent and car.
Thomas, father od 6 year old little Victor is in very bad condition. He has been attacked very insidious, not giving any signs of cancer, which in one moment turned our lives into a nightmare.
Actually I do not know how to dress it up in words. Everything started so innocently …
Tom was still tired for days. He went to the doctor, who after the examination said that it was nothing serious. Thomas got the medicine and it was supposed to be better. We did not care too much about it, hoping that it would pass. He Was in the park, walking for days. Nothing indicated that Tom’s condition worsened. . Tomasz felt less and less, his belly began to swell … He went to EA, there was found … constipation and gave him analgesia and antibiotic !!! They sent him home. Three more days passed, Tomek’s belly swelled so badly and he was so pained that without thinking we went to AE and said that they must help us in the end !! TK was done and the result frightened us. Tom left in the ward and began to carry out research. One day it is, in another one. No one was in a hurry! In the meantime weekend .. In very bad condition, he was sent to an oncological He lost a lot of pounds. In a moment, a 95-kilogram, strong man is crumbling, with ankles on top, helpless, unable to move himself: (((I add that Tom was caring for health.) He was prophylactically checking the tumor markers and morphology I can envy him, he was a sportsman, always active, he never complained of any complaints, he did not have any symptoms, it is hard to believe it and it is the most scary.
It is very hard for me to write it down, I can not deal with it and I’m not going! Tom is extremely strong mentally and will not give up! We will fight with all our strength, we have wonderful friends who do their best to put Tom on his feet as soon as possible!
Unfortunately doctors do not leave us illusions :( his condition is heavy, we have to control the ascites, heal the wound after the surgery and immediately start the treatment.More about peritoneal cancer.It is disseminated to other organs.Doctors did not want to surgery, it was too risky.Not us time It favors, the results have to wait long. Disease very quickly and aggressively progresses ..
Hope for us are clinics abroad. One in Switzerland, where unfortunately we can not count on treatment from the fund, as it is known outside the EU. Treatment is very expensive. The second option is Germany, where there are specialists dealing with this type of cancer, which is successfully treated and operated. The doctors from both clinics are waiting for the final result to be able to offer us a specific treatment and cost estimate. But after the initial orientation, we are certainly talking about the amount that I do not have at the moment. So together with family and friends we collect money and if any of you would like to support us and throw it out, using this portal we make a dump. On the day we start a foundation, we look forward to a complete set of documents and research results, without it is not possible.
Hi my name is Kevin.
First off I would like to thank you for taking the time out of your day to read this.
I’ll try to keep this short, as much as I can.
I really don’t have anywhere else to turn , if I could I would…..to tell you about my whole life, would be to much to write.
I’ll just start with why I’m writing this email to you.
The job I was working at moved location far away and I couldn’t afford to move there, so I decided to work as a truck relive driver for when they take holidays, and go self employed.
As I started the money was not so good due to training, and now the training period is over, I have to wait about 40 days before I start relive truck drivers for their holidays.
That brings me to the reason I’m writing to you.
Im in a bad financial situation and im asking for some help….I still believe their are good people out in this world who are willing to help.
I have hope and fairgrounds and also trying to stay positive through this hard time in my life.
I cant go to family and friends as the people close to me are basically living paycheck to paycheck.
I am here writing to you in hopes you can help in anyway, rather is 25cents, 1$, 2$, anything will help.
I’m trying to get to 5000$, to pay for car payments ,car insurance, rent, food and bills , as I’m already behind on payments, and I have no idea how to get through this tough time.
My credit is bad or I would get a loan but I cant.
Im not asking for a donation, if you are able to help me and require the money returned, I will do so in about 3 months, once after these 40 days pass and im working more consistent, just let me know if you would like the money returned and I will do so.
If you can find it in your heart to help, even if its 25cents , that would very generous of you.
You may either send the money through PayPal or Etransfer with this new email I made for just this purpose,so I can easily track back and pay back the ones that requires.
Thanks again for reading.
Feel free to ask for my phone number if you wanna talk over the phone first.
Hello to you, let me start off by telling you that I am a single mother of 4 Beautiful and very talented children! Their ages range from 13 to 2 years! I can still Remember the first cry of every one of my children. As a parent we want the best for our children, we put ourself on the back burner to make sure all their needs are met! I am a college graduate, I cannot remember a time in my life when I didn’t work! My children sometimes think we are rich, because I am a penny pinching frugal momma! The know and practice respect and a great work ethic. I have always taught my children NOTHING, is free in this world. If you want something you have to put in the work to get it. Never expect nor ask for a hand out. I guess that makes me a hypocrite. So please let me explain. My oldest son has a severe disability. He has never had the empathy connection, nor the social skills to make friends the way that most have. I have tried to teach him the best that I can but something just doesn’t click. We have went through different therapy, differwnt doctors and quacks, for the short version my child has been a guinea pig for a ton of test and drugs. It seemed he was really starting to get better, I had almost 3 weeks of vacation time saved up along with a few sick days. So I took off work. Man the difference in him just in that short amount of time was like night and day! Then I went back to work and we had a very unexpected loss in our family! It is still hard for me on a daily basis and it’s Been a little over a year. My other children grieved and still are but my oldest there are no words. Then I really started to notice more and more drastic changes in him. Straight A student to all F’s. A dull silence now fills the air when we are together. I have learned that he gets bullied alot in school, and although there is a “no tolerance” code for bullies, it still continues to happen. All I have done by speaking up about the problem is make it worse! Children can be very mean, that is an understatement. They tell my child that he is the man of the house now and pick and tease him insinuating that he has been taking over my late husbands “duties” This was not the way I wanted to explain sex ed to my child. But I gained and bared it. Then there seemed to be a time where things were getting back to I guess you could say the best of normal that our family could have. I was putting away clothes one day and stumbled upon a little notebook that I have never seen before. Now please let me mind you I am not one of those private spy mothers. However curiosity got the best of me so I wanted to have a small look. That is what brings me to humbling myself to ask for help! There were pictures of our family but my son had cut, or scribbled his face out of everyone. There was a very detailed account of our finances or lack there of, including repossession notice, disconnection notice everything. Then there was a ledger of all the money my child thought that I had “wasted” on him as he called it. I wasn’t liking what I was seeing. But I disnt stop nope. Then i torched myself even more by reading his entries. My child has tried to commit suicide on more than 3 occasions. He has been very detailed about what pills he took what the out come was. It was like a scientist hypothesis book. How can a 13 year old child feel so much pain? I have tried to get help but he doesn’t want to go back to the meds that make him a zombie, or give him the ticks that leaves an easier mark for him to be picked on. I have started every survey site known to man. I have done the whole “work at home to earn extra money bit” that you see on TV. Got a second job. Signed up for any government benifit that we qualified for. But that is only working more to get less and seeing my children less. I have taken out loans that I couldn’t afford, maxed all my credit cards, and sold my wedding rings. I donate plasma twice a week. I feel like as soon as I start making headway I get swept up in a tornado again! I lost my 4 year job because of too many demerits for tardiness and call ins. Due to no babysitter or children’s doctor appointment. I was denied unemployment, and now I am working cleaning offices at night and at a local fast food restaurant during the day. I need help! I refuse to lose my child. He has been accepted into this new innovative school now in August 2018 with the stipulation that his GPA goes back to 3.5! I would like to quit my job and home school my children. I have been looking into opening a daycare for second shift due to the overabundance of need. However I can’t do so in my little 2 bedroom apartment. If I could get any kind of help I would be so grateful! Thank you for taking the time to listen to my story.
For the last three months my husband and I have been homeless and sleeping on the streets. This all started in January when I lost my car and job. I had a car I was making payments on and a job that was barely keeping a roof over our heads. At my job they drastically reduced everyone’s hours to barely 20 forcing everyone to look for work elsewhere, myself included. In order to keep a roof over our heads I had to push back my car payments until hours picked up or I was able to find another job. My husband at the time was trying very hard to find a job that he could walk to should he happen to have to work while I was gone to work. He could not however find a job near us but is still very much trying. I ended up losing my car due to this which caused me to lose my job due to it being 26 miles away in a different city. I had no way of getting there so I ended up losing my job. Along with losing my car and job we lost our home. We started calling and talking to every church, charitable organization and dhs in our area with no help at all being given to us to get off the streets. We have looked and asked around but there are no homeless shelters where we live to help either. We have been sleeping on the streets since the end of January with temperatures dropping to around and below freezing. This has sadly caused me to get sick a few times and right now is one of those times when I am sick. We have reached out to friends, family and everyone we know but no one is willing to help and has disowned us. We have both been applying for all jobs we can find that we can walk to but haven’t been having any luck. We have been sitting inside a McDonald’s all day from 5am to about 9 or 10pm to get away from the elements (cold or currently heat). We have been sleeping behind a dumpster on some cardboard we have found. We go here every night in order to not be seen, harassed or attacked by any people. We are very tired and hungry as we don’t get to eat but once or twice a day and the cold temperatures at night make it to where we’re unable to sleep without shivering. These cold temperatures have affected me worse than him. I have low iron and am anemic so the cold hits me harder to where I can’t stop shaking even when I’m wearing layers of clothes. We are looking for a little help in order to get off the streets so we can get our lives back and get a warm and safe roof over our heads again.
Hi my name is Nancy King and im a domestic violent survivor. I have been away from my abuser going on 6 months. I was with him 6 years, i managed to lose everything including my own identity. Ive never felt so trapped. Let me start from the first briefly to the last. I feel inlove with him, he managed to get me to give up my home and move in with him. Thats when the nughtmare started. This was after a year of dating the man of my dreams. Then it wasnt long after i moved in that i was severely beaten, cracked ribs. My face was unrecognizable, I had to beg to see dr, i was scared to report him, I got home and laid down then he proceeds to assault me sexually. I have no family or friends i could turn to. Well this goes on for years. I had a dog i brought into his home. There was so much violence that my dog was unhealthy. He didnt know which way to protect. He proceeds to backhand me off the toilet and my dog attacked me. Teo weeks later he grabbed me and said some pretty bad things by then my heart and my head was so lost and i felt trapped and so alone. I dropped to my knees begging god to please help me. The next day 1/21/2017 my dog started to attack in blind rage due to the violence and he attacked me. He severely damaged my arms and i went into cardiac arrest my daughter couldnt get him off me. My ex had left me there to die. I accepted my fate and told my daughter to leave the room. He finally quit attacking me ,and i woke up in the hospital. I remember my ex coming up there and he rapped me and made the drs think i was crazy. I got out of hospital with no where to go. He threw me out i lived in my truck then went back. He continues the abuse. He found out that i left the house and helped a young lady leave a violent situation. Her spouse knocked on the door at 2am he had beat me from 2:30 am to 6am. My ribs were broken boths sides and my head was split. He wouldnt let me use my phone or leave to seek medical attention. I wasnt in any shape to fight him or run. I was stuck it was hell and torture. I finally got well enough to finally leave. I was on the streets and i retreated to ny mothers section 8 apartment in Illinois which i had so long to stay. My license are expired and i couldnt work. I was able to get my car to a friends in ga. I got down here and have been stuck at ftiends. Any money i acquired i used to get my car running. I got my birth certificate. Now im stuck i have done my best to help myself start a new life outside of ga. My friends that are allowing me to stay with them are struggling themselves. Ive swallowed my pride and asked for help only to get ignored or turned away. I have no id, no transportation to obtain my legal documents or get get my car legal. I cant get a ride to the store and i feel so hopeless and alone. I gave noone to turn to and im so stuck. My arms and no documents prevent me from obtaining any type of income. I dont know where else to turn. Im wanting to start a new life some where ive never been and actually obtain some type of degree that can help me start a new life. Ive been an emotional and physical punching bag my whole. Im just looking for some type of break to start my life over and leave this nightmare in my past. Be able to just over this hump. I want to invest my life into making my experiences into helping others. But first i just want to have my own things and gain myself respect. I still have plenty of love to offer and my life has some type of better calling. I get treated like scum. Im not asking for much just enough to get my life back together and be stable. I wont set an expecting amount. But 370.00 should at least get me my license and my car legal.
As a freelancer, you’re never guaranteed a regular income, but the first months of 2017 have been particularly meager, and I’ve ended up with some minor debts. I’ve temporarily moved in with my ex-wife and my seven-year-old son, and I’m now trying to find a part-time job in addition to my freelancing activities, so I have a regular paycheck. I want to avoid getting into a situation like this in the future again.
Luckily, my freelance activities have picked up again over the last four weeks, but the problem is that it’ll be around two months before I see any payoff. My debts are relatively small, but I want to avoid sinking any deeper into the quagmire of debt collection and enforcement, and I need to do something about them sooner rather than later. I’ve already received the first letters from the debt collection agencies, and I really don’t want any more of them, but it’s pretty difficult to do something about when you don’t know what to tell them. Around here, they’ll extend the due dates of any debts by a few weeks, a month at most.
My phone is currently shut off because of two overdue bills, and I need to get it running again as it plays an important part in my freelance activities and my ability to earn money. I also owe some minor utility bills from my previous apartment.
My car is also an issue as it didn’t pass the last inspection and needs some things fixed. Luckily I’m able to perform these repairs myself and thus save some money, but I need to purchase the parts and rent a garage where I can fix it. I’ll be needing it to get back and forth if and when I find a job.
An aggravating factor in this situation is that my ex-wife is on sick leave (and thus reduced income) until June. This means that we’ll be skimping and scraping by for a while until things get better and I don’t want to be a burden to her.
As you can see, our situation is not completely desperate yet, but I want to nip the misery in the bud before it gets out of hand. We would need around $2000 to get clear my debts and make it over this hill until things get better and hopefully, with your help, we’ll be back to living normally again before the end of the summer.
I hope you’ll be able to help us out and I would like to thank you for your kindness already now.
Hi, everybody, my name is Rob and I am 25. It’s really hard to describe my situation cause nobody ever except me run through something as that.
I had an interview last week and I get a job what is really good for a new start but my previous three years weren’t the best of my life. I lived in the UK and worked in a warehouse and tried to save some money to better start maybe in my home country or wherever I’ll be. I did not save nearly any money during past three years. I lived on cash flow (payday every Friday) and I just been enjoying the effect of money on myself.
I had quite good high school and I get some knowledge of psychology and I knew what I am going through and how it effects me.
On spring 2014 I get my first credit card and by less than a month I spent all 1000 pounds. Time to time I used short-term loans. Last summer I left my job in a warehouse and I moved to the south coast of UK. My friends from my home country lived there and I wanted live with them. I had just part time jobs there through job agencies. I did not have too big expenses on living but also I did not earn even average money. Durig last three months of last year I had a job where I kind of save some 2000 pounds and I decided to move to Prague.
Actually, I live here in Prague. I spent all my money and another 3000 euro what I borrow from my bank. During past month I twisted my knee as fifth time and I couldn’t go for any part time job so I just searched any job. I found a job in a hostel as a receptionist in city downtown and I am starting there from next week after Easter. I am actually really broke. I have unpaid bills for electricity(500euro), gas(100euro), even now by another week I have to pay another rent(240euro). I have to go for an operation of my ACL in my knee what will cost about (1000euro) and also my unpaid debt as (4200 euro).
I am admitting that I lived quite fast life without some real enjoying of moments, I spent money on unimportant things mostly, I ate too much fast food and live this way of life wasn’t a really good way of life. My family turns back to me cause other stupid things from the past.
I will really appreciate when you will help me clear my debts and start to be better myself. Somebody one’s time said, “If you won’t ask, you won’t know.” So please people and donators, this page is with big possibility my last chance how to be on zero and start with clear shield.
Thank you for reading till the end.
Hello there, my name is Jenny and this is a desperate attempt to finally ask for help because I really can’t take this anymore:( I need to get the hell out of Tucson. In October I moved here from Boston with my girlfriend. A year and a half prior to my move I had been suffering from a major depression after being laid off from a job I had had for 8 years, I also went through an awful breakup and I had to move out of my place that I’d been in for 7 years. After I lost my job I was scrambling to make ends meet, on two occasions working 3 different jobs at once. Anyway I decided I couldn’t take another winter in Boston because of my depression so I made the decision to move to Las Vegas to be with my sister who is stationed there. My girlfriend was coming with me and she has a sister who lives in Tucson. I told her that maybe after we’ve been in Vegas for a bit maybe we could go to Tucson and be with her sister after. This got her very excited and she spoke with her sister and the two of them begged me to move to Tucson first. I eventually gave in. So I got rid of all of my stuff, my bed, my furniture, my books, my kitchen stuff, you know, things you accumulate over time trying to build your home. We didn’t need two of everything anyways and my stuff was older so we took my girlfriend’s things. When I got to Tucson I didn’t realize it would be so hard finding a job. I ended up getting a job driving a cab until I could find something else. Well I couldn’t find anything better and my depression started getting worse. I haven’t made any friends here because driving the cab doesn’t require co-workers, and I’m not in school so I don’t have classmates to joke around with, not to mention the cab takes up nearly 14 hours out of my day. About three weeks ago my girlfriend broke up with me because of my depression. I had to move out and further away from where the cab is. We were sharing her car so I’m kind of stranded when I don’t have the cab. I am completely heartbroken and completely 100% alone in this place and I just want to leave! I make nearly nothing driving and I can’t save anything, and I have to be out of the place I’m staying by the end of April! I’ve been doing shameful shameful things for money and I go home and cut myself. I have anxiety attacks and panic attacks regularly and it is driving me insane! Everything is a reminder, I wake up in Tucson, I drive around in Tucson, we weren’t even supposed to be in Tucson and now I’m stuck here with nothing and no one! Please please please can anyone help me???? I feel like I can’t breath out here and I’m sometimes afraid of myself when it gets bad. Just so you know, I have been seeing a wonderful lady at the YWCA once a week for free counseling. Other than that there is only emptiness:( please let me know if there’s anything you can do for me, I’m good for it I promise. I just need to get out of here. Well thanks for reading, I hope you have a good day.
This is my LAST hope,
I’m writing to ask for absolute favor in the hope of possibly avoiding a very detrimental situation regarding my financial position right now. Typically I would hope to be able to obtain a loan through regular channels (bank, finance company; etc.). But let me give you some background about where I am at.
After filing taxes for year 2014 at about $80,000, year 2015 at $54,000 and for last year (2016) at $32,000 the obvious has come to pass, (more out, less in).
I have truly fallen into financial debt that forced me to file for chapter 13 bankruptcy just last month.
I have been in my house since 2007 and have been trying to maintain keeping up with my bills as best I can without resorting to the bankruptcy option. I have always been convinced that God had this house planned for me, my signing was on April 6 (Good Friday), and moved in on April 8 (Easter Sunday).
After being a lifelong bachelor and finally finding the absolute love of my life she expects me to be the man that God has brought me up to believe that as the man of the house means that I provide for safe shelter for my wife.
I met my wife in early 2014 right after I lost the job that paid me $80,000 because the company didn’t receive the contract that they had anticipated. I maintained my obligations despite going through unemployment until October of that year.
In October I got the next job that paid me only $54,000 and maintained that job until August 2015 when it became apparent that this position wasn’t going to work out and I was released.
Again back on unemployment until December of last year (2016) again trying to maintain my financial obligations despite making less money. Despite all that I had maintained a 700 credit score until filing bankruptcy.
Truly grateful to have income again I tried to again keep up with my bills but eventually the debt to income ratio caught up with me which bring me to the purpose on writing this letter.
The position that I currently have is a contract position without benefits such as health care, paid holidays, etc.
Starting in December there were days in which I had to take off because of holidays so I really haven’t had a week in which I get a full paycheck. Finally starting in January there was fewer days off because of holidays (even though there were a few).
So finally attempting to get on track brings me to February when I was rear ended in a car accident which again has caused me to lose income.
Now here’s where things started to spiral out of control to bring me to this point.
Filing the bankruptcy on Friday (February 17) and having the accident the following Tuesday (February 21) really put a strain on my situation even more. The car that I was driving had a lien on it meaning that there would not be any payoff coming to me.
Luckily I do have a truck that I could drive in order to get back and forth to work but it’s not as fuel efficient so it’s costing me plenty more in gas money.
Which brings me to the writing of the letter in hopes of getting someone who can understand my situation and have favor, grace & mercy and is in a good financial place to be able to allow me to borrow $5,000 in order to get caught up with my mortgage which due to a misunderstanding that I had with the attorney that is handling my bankruptcy I have fallen behind. I was under the impression that ANY money that I was short on paying my mortgage would be included in the proceedings and would be included in the bankruptcy payback.
Again normally I would be able to go and apply for a traditional loan but now being in the beginning phases of my bankruptcy I cannot incur ANY new debt according to the rules of bankruptcy so if anyone is in a position of making me either a donation or any financial help it would have to be in the form of a personal transaction because of the rules.
I know that this seems like an oxymoron to be asking for a loan but supposedly not incurring any new debt but if possible it would have to be off the record and either can be repaid via a commitment of making re-payment to you after a settlement is to come from car accident.
I’m NOT looking for a handout but what I would consider to be a “HOLD” over.
I know that whoever is reading this probably have heard all different stories about people in financial situations that are far worst than mine and I truly don’t consider this life threating nor eventually something that in time cannot be resolved but I’m in a place where I have really no other options but to throw myself at the mercy of someone who is in a financial position to help out.
If you can help me out or if you want to talk with me to confirm my story I can be reached at;
With extreme thanks in advance for consideration and continued blessing.
I own a small business, designing and manufacturing clothes for corporate clients/hospitality. We have an amazing reputation and track record and are among the top 5 suppliers in our region mainly due to the loyalty, skill and spirit of my 11 staff members. However, over the past 18 months we have experienced a huge drop in sales which caused severe cash-flow problems. We managed to survive but among other issues I fell behind with paying my staff salaries (5 months in arrears).
The banks are not willing to assist based on my poor turnover on bank statements for the past year. Since the beginning of 2017 we started receiving great orders/contracts and the rest of the year is looking very promising. We have a chance to come out of this crisis but in order to do so I need to solve the current financial problems facing us right now. The first and most important is the salaries. Daily, my staff are faced with more and more problems due to this. I feel sick to my stomach and and I feel 100% responsible for these people and their families! We are at a point where their basic needs cannot be met, food, school fees, housing, medical. I am personally in the same boat and I’ve depleted my personal savings. My staff still put on a brave face and offer me their full support but I know the pain this is causing. It is obviously also taking a huge toll on our productivity which is the last thing we can afford now.
$70 000 would bring immediate relief to my staff and their families as well as give us the opportunity to fix our business. It feels crazy to ask for this but I am positive that this message will get to people who can relate.
Thank you for reading this and if you could assist, it would be appreciated more than you could imagine.
Hello Everyone! My name’s Alyssa I’m a CNA and a mother of 3 beautiful special needs children. Two months ago I lost everything due to helping a homeless person in my home not knowing much about her outta my heart I felt it was the right thing to do I mean she had children of her. Anyway this lady had multiple warrants in the state of Wisconsin and was dealing and doing drugs out of my home. Cops were called and they told me I had to take my kids and get out for our safety. I lost everything! From kids cloths, my clothes, food, tv, their swing set, pool etc the cops would not let me take anything cause the house was being rated even though it had nothing to do with me it still happend in my own home. I almost lost my babies and my carreerr scariest thing I’ve ever encounter in my life all because I helped the wrong person. I was living from hotel to hotel with them finally I got a hold of my grandfather and stayed with him for awhile come to find out he was very I’ll and I had to stop working to take care of him cause his wish was to be in the confront of his own home he ended up passing away on Christmas day. After everything that happend with my family I ended up getting a New job and had to find a place asap before I actually lost my kids because my grandfather’s house was going through foreclosure. Well I just now actually found a home last month and I’m having a hard time I’m starting out with nothing had to go to a few churches for food. My children still do not have a kitchen table to eat at and it kills me inside I have no summer clothes or shoes for them. A very nice lady I met at a church donated a few toys for them. I have no TV and my children are autistic they love their cartoons :( I’m just having a very hard time with money right now due to having to pay first month’s rent and security deposit I’m a single mother living pay check to pay check right now until my daughter gets approved for help through the state that’s if she dose. I’m exhausted I feel like I’ve failed as a mother and feel like giving up almost everyday I feel like I will never get ahead. I found this on Google doing some research and figure I could try. If there is anyone out there that could point me in the right direction for help or could help me at all my kids and I would truly appreciate it. I’m just a single mother trying to get my life back together. Its crazy how you could go out of you’re way to help someone and end up losing wverythi g you’ve worked so hard for.
I recently help my friend with her maternity bill and I used the money that my another friend entrust me, that money was supposed to be used to buy something in amazon and I will order on his behalf I also pawn my DSLR to help my friend.
My friend is a teenage mom (16yrs) and had been disowned by her family and also her boyfriend who was supposed to be responsible for their child also abandoned her. Now she is currently renting a house with my help and my parents didn’t know all of this and I promise her that I wouldn’t tell anyone about her situation.
This is where my problem comes in my other whose money I used ( thinking that I could easily replace it) is already asking me where his goods at, also the payment due of my DSLR is on April 13 2017 and if I can’t pay at the given time I will not be able to get it back. If my parents found out that I use my friend money which is about 300$ I don’t know what will happen to me and to add it up I also pawn the cam that they give to me as a present. I don’t want to let my friend know about this because she’s already suffering on her own and its my will to help her although I do admit I did it in a reckless fashion but I don’t regret anything. I’m just troubled where to get money to replace the one that I’ve used.
If someone out there with a good heart is reading this; I want you to know that your’e helping 3 souls here not just one and if ever so kindly that you will donate I sincerely thank you from the deepest depth of my soul.
(P.S. I’m using my another friend’s email)
in March 2016, I was diagnosed with HCV and liver cirrhosis. Almost every available test was performed to determine treatment and proposed solutions. My pathologist hepatologist suggested to try a fairly new pill treatment for 3 months, in order to “eliminate” HCV” and cirrhosis. Unfortunately, during the begging of the 3rd month, I was rushed to the hospital with heavy hepatic encephalopathy, having seizures for 2 days. They were so severe that I had to be tied up to the bed, just in case I would hurt myself. After 6 days I was moved to the only hospital ( located in Thessaloniki ) that performs LTx. I examined again in order to determine that I had the strength to go through a LTx and then returned to Psychiatric dep. going through a rather long list of psychological tests. It’s one thing to say that “I will do it” and another to really reconcile with your self and really accept the fact of having someone else’s organ in you. February of 2017 I had to deal with a heavy variceal bleeding, forcing to stay in Intensive care for 3 days with continuously transfusion of blood and plasma.I was amazed by the amount of blood vomiting which went on foe two days, despite the treatment. I have never experienced such pain in my life. An LTx is ased on what is called MELD score and mine is not exactly something to write home about.All my tooth are rotten from their root (side effects from the pill treatment ) but the thorn in this case is that I must firstly perform bone transplant so there will be basis for porcelain tooth to sit on. A combo of transplant and implants estimated 30.000 $. I wish that would be all our trouble. But the total amount required ( several issues were not included due to limited space. Finally, after a medical meeting with the head of LTx, and another large number of various We were told to contact different EU countries like UK,Spain, France and a few more. when we spoke with John Hopkins in the US the cost reached a staggering 2,5 million. I am not a millionaire, I did use all my money during tha past year cuase I had high hopes that with God’s help would improve my health. A small miracle, but miracles cost ( going to another Hospital abroad, since I intent to leave Greece we add living expenses, air tickets, local hematologist just in case of encephalopathy or variceal bleeding. In case like this I will have to run back a.s.a.p. I also have to deal with ascites fluid (a year ago my weight was 82 kgs, now is 98 kgs ) my forehead is having more and more red marks ( sign of cirrhosis ) .I am 56 years old, I have been working for 25 years and I know that 300.000 euro is not easy to come. I dont want to die soon and unfortunately I need all the help that I can get, or if you prefer all that can be given. Life is sweet and I am not ready to die.
I’m Cj and I’m a 22 year old female college student. In the last year, Life has hit me hard from every direction.
I am currently working two jobs and attending 18 course hours which is a relief from the three I had to maintain as well as keeping up with school. After the school revoked my Pell Grant due finances I was forced to leave my beautiful university and find somewhere I would be able to afford paying for while repaying my previous institution. I moved completely out of state to a city and university where I knew absolutely no one. After a few miserable months, I attempted to patch up life in my hometown and move back home. After bumming around at friends, couch surfing, I finally had found what I thought was the perfect apartment.
It ended up being completely roach infested and the apartment complex was completely aware and not planning to do a thing about it. I had to get legal aid as well as fox on your side involved in order to break the leasing agreement with the apartment so I would be able to move out. A few more weeks of couch surfing and I have finally found a place that I can live comfortably.
Unfortunately, however, bills are relentless. I had to pay cancellation fees, transfer fees, legal fees, and did not receive any refunds for rent or deposit from the previous apartment complex.
I currently work two waitressing jobs whenever I am not in class. I work long hours and late ones at that. I feel like I am literally losing my sanity. I have classes from 8am to 4pm everyday and then work from4:30 pm to 2am every evening.
I have never been afraid of hard work and losing sleep in order to be productive, but it has become very difficult for me to focus on school.
My teachers have expressed concern of my exhaustion to the point of even excusing me from classes so that I may rest.
I am simply asking for anything that one may think will help.
I’m living penny to penny paying over $1800 in living expenses a month in addition to whatever ‘extra’ cash I may make going to the legal fees and the loan I had to take in order to cancel and then transfer all my utilities from the infested apartment to my current. I’m currently on a pay plan for a storage unit that I had to place all of my belongings in (the ones I didn’t have to throw away because of damage) to pest bomb in order to ensure I did not transfer the roaches.
I am working almost 80 hours a week in addition to school… and I think I’m going to fall apart. After I have caught up with the expenses due to this dramatic experience, I will be able to work less and focus on school.
I genuinely thank you in advance.
Hi i am on here to ask for help with my high debts after speaking with a someone on a friends in need group. Upto the middle of 2015 i had a very happy life, was happily married, had a beautiful baby girl and a well paid job and a nice car, i got on with everybody in my family and all of my inlaws.
That all changed when i lost my job and started to fall behind with payments on my bills slowly slowly my savings started to disappear and my credit cards started to hit there limits.
Still working at this time it just seemed i was only earning enuff money to pay the interest off my debts so i took out a loan to consolidate my debts. This was a bad idea as i failed to keep up with the high repayments. We slowly started to miss rent and repayments and family stepped in to help. Now its at the stage all relationships with family members have broken. My inlaws hate me and im to ashamed to even meet people anymore. I know my wife hates me we sleep in separate rooms the only reason she hasn’t left me is cause we have another baby due. I have lost nearly all my friends as i owe them money. The only people i can really talk to are people online i have met in depression forums.
I reli just want to curl up and die but people keep telling me how my family need me.
im giving this website a try as maybe reliving some of my debt will will help me. If there is someone who is really genuine out there please get intouch as i am happy to send proofs of debts and details so anybody willing to help can pay off the debt direct rather then giving the money to me.
Hello to all who take the time out of their day to read this. My name is Jason Givens and I work for Zodiac Aerospace Cabin Interiors as a Material Handler. I know you probably hear a lot of stories about people who are in need of help right now. But I have come to a point where I am at a financial cliff where one gust of wind could send me falling into crippling debt, becoming homeless, and declaring bankruptcy. Currently, each paycheck hits my bank account that has a negative balance in it, causing me to lose 40-50% of my paycheck. With rent to pay, and food to buy, it makes bills hard to pay or keep up on. Now lets add to the fact that I have been sent to collections for a ticket for poor choices I made last year of driving without a license or insurance. I do not have the money to make payments on my credit card or to collections, or my personal bills for that matter. Now I do realize I have made mistakes and decisions that have put me in the position I am in today. But with no family willing or able to help, and the fact that I do not want to add to my debt with another loan I will probably not get approved for, I have turned here, humbly asking for help. I have the job to keep myself falling into the pit I have dug myself into. However I just need the help to get out of the hole. I am not asking for a specif amount, just anything that you think would help me get back on my feet. I appreciate the time you took to read this if you made it this far and I also want to thank all who have helped other people on this website. Furthermore, if for some reason you decide to help me in some way, I want to thank you right here, right now. You are a blessing to my life and to the lives of those around you.
I am 22 years old and I’m a mother to one beautiful little girl named Lillyana. She is my world, my everything, and I would do anything to make sure she lives a good life… things were just starting to get back on track but before I knew it, I landed on my ass again.. I’ve been trying to get a job even though I’m not supposed to work, but it’s literally so hard. Only when I want it to work, it doesn’t. Funny, how life works like that. I have a lot of expenses to take care of including unpaid medical bills, my car, my home that I’m going to lose soon because the land lady is crazy ( I’ll get to that in a minute) and I have tried EVERYTHING I could think of… it’s like no one cares enough to help me out, but they’re all over me when I’m able or do help them . It’s a continuous, crazy cycle that I just want to end!
We will start with how I got here. I had to move out of my parents house because my sister was driving me up the wall, making me feel like the shittiest person alive. So I moved about 45 minutes away. This is where the crazy land lady comes to play. I signed a lease, that hasn’t been updated since 2001, and I didn’t know or think to know anything about it until stuff started happening. I moved here with my friend who had been living here since october. I paid a total of 280 to get in. Now all of this illegal stuff is happening and pretty soon, I won’t have a place to go. Lilly is living with my parents right now because if I end up losing my house, I don’t want my daughter caught up in that…
My car. I have 1200$ left to pay and I need to pay it in 2 weeks (from April 1st) or ill get it taken back (by people, not a dealership) and then I won’t be able to do anything.
Medical bills. Since I can’t work, I haven’t been able to pay them off, so they keep stacking up because I have so many appointments that I have to go to and I just.
I never knew life could be so difficult growing up in a poor family. I have had to work for everything that I have right now. I didn’t get help from anyone because I didn’t want it. It’s that sense of pride that I had, wanting to do everything myself… But I have helped and helped and helped and I figured it’s my turn to be helped… I’m letting go of my pride and I’m asking with all my heart please… i need help…. anything will help…. I for sure need that 1200 by the 14th…. or ill pretty much lose everything. I hate begging but I feel that’s what I need to do….
I am Cydell Payne and I am 66 years old receiving my own SSA. My ex husband recently passed and I was approved to receive survivors benefits. The benefits were to date back to Jan. 2017. I have my award letter but it is in PDF and I cannot attach it to this message. This will allow my income to double, which would make it easier for me to survive monthly.
Due to having to work to get an apartment and furniture, Social Security said they over paid me. This notice came to me a year after I was no longer able to work. They gave me a payment plan because my income was so low at this time.
when I filed for my husband benefits the customer service representative told me that he was making sure they knew that I was already on a payment plan. This was for the issuing office to know not to take my back checks owed. My Social Security account online stated that I would get $1865 (mine & my husband’s), funds on April 3rd because I was approved in March. Social Security always pay for the past month.
Prior to my increase, I was already paying minimum on my household bills in order to pay my rent. Since I had received a notification that I would have the increase in my April check, when my small amount hit my bank, I was finally able to catch up all my household bills. I was depending on my husbands portion to hit my account on April 3rd, being that mine portion came to me on March 30th.
I had been calling and keeping updated from the time I was approved for the increase. On Monday when I called Social Security about the missing funds, they asked me to come up to the office. Once there I found out that they not only keep the back pay for Jan. & Feb., they also keep my 1/2 payment for April as well. This was not to be, I was approved in March, therefore I should have received my husband’s part of my income. This is even with them keeping Jan. and Feb.
I have written a complaint on Social Security because this is not what I was told. I was also informed to write my Senator, Congress Woman and US Attorney General.
I have paperwork to prove the actions that I have taken and can send it via e-mail if needed.
Due to all of this miscommunication I am unable to pay my rent for this month. It was due on April 3rd, not counting every day I acquire another late fee. I am at approximately $880 depending upon when you receive this e-mail. I can even forward you my management office information if you would rather pay them directly.
Once this is resolved, I will be able to pay my rent as usual.
Any help given would be greatly appreciated.
Good morning, please l am a student in Ghana and my aim of making impact in my family and my community as a whole, I have a very great aim of pursuing my career to the tertiary level. I am from a poor home so the only option for me was to go for a loan when I got my admission to the the tertiary level. I was successful to obtain a loan to pay my fees but when I begun to school, my leaving on campus became hard for me to the extend that sometimes I eat only once in a day, and it was really affecting my studies. Due to the hard I was going through a friend advised me to go for another loan so I can use that money to feed myself, buy books, do photocopy of lecture notes, etc. I thought of it that if I don’t go for the loan as my friend suggested, the hardship on campus will force me to stop the school, and even if i stop the school, I still owe the first loan that I took and how to pay that loan too will be a problem. I am scared of being prisoned for owing an institution since my dream of becoming a civil engineer and even structural engineer will not come to pass so I decided to go for a second loan in other to have money to feed myself, buy books, etc. My greatest fear is that I will be on second year this year and I have to get a hostel since when I was in level 100 a got a school hall to leave in, now getting a hostel too requires money and it will not be less than $300 each year and I will be in the hostel for four years since my program spans five years(3 yrs for HND and 2yrs for degree). Going for another loan to pay my hostel will lead me to high indebtedness because the rate a got the two loans were very high and adding one to it will be dangerous and I doubt if I will be granted. Please I am now pleading for help so I can get money to pay off the loans I have taken and get about $2500 a year to help me have a sound my to pursue my program having my mind at peace, I have been thinking too much and it is all because of the money I am not having to pursue my education. Loans do not give me sound mind. I don’t even have laptop, but it is essential to have a laptop in the program I am doing(civil engineering). Please if i don’t get anyone who will totally fund my education but will help me in a way, I will be highly grateful. At the end, I want to be a successful civil engineer and even further it more to become structural engineer and if I am able to become these, I will have a great impact in my family and my community or anyone who will genuinely require my help. Thank you.
So, I am trying to get ahead of my debt. I currently work two jobs and moved into my own place to get away from a very uninhabitable living situation with my sister and her boyfriend. I am finally starting to be in a good place where I can save money and fix my credit. I just didn’t have a large sum of money available in such a quick time to pay for everything.
Due to bad credit, I had to pay a full security rent deposit ($575) and utility deposit ($300) and renter’s insurance ($60) plus other moving expenses and rent for April and other bills
I was able to pay rent and the rent security deposit. I’m just lacking the utility deposit and the insurance, which I really need. So, I’m only asking for help to get $360.
I’m just recently graduate trying to find a decent job and live comfortable without the stress of always being 2 steps behind constantly. Helping me will help in helping myself to get steady and eventually help someone else😊

Hello Dear Friend:
My husband and I are both disabled, my husband is in end stage renal disease, he is on the kidney transplant list. I am diabetic and I have severe neuropathy in both legs and feet. My husband has problems falling asleep at any moment, and has recently fallen and broke his thumb and wrist. We live in a modest mobile home that is in dire need of repair, especially a roof, we have leaks. We need new windows and doors and screens. Our porches are in need of repair; my husband has fallen through the porch before.
Financially we are destroyed, we barely can afford food. I have learned all about getting in lines at food banks. We are told we do not qualify for food stamps because we have social security income. My 34-year-old daughter lives with us. She found herself homeless and with no transportation, with a drug addiction, and was arrested. She is attending drug rehab classes and is doing really well. She has emotional problems which should have been treated when she was young, but I did not realize the extent until she became an adult. She is bipolar but has to be tested and diagnosed. She cannot afford medical bills and goes without blood pressure meds. It makes me sad as a Mom to not be able to help my daughter. She helps us with the heavy lifting, etc. She is trying to find work but we live 40 miles from the closest city, she has no transportation. We do home hemodialysis here at home, so we don’t have to make four-hour trips to the dialysis center three times per week. Home hemo is my husband’s lifeline on his life, without it, he would die.
We had to apply for a car at a buy here, pay here auto sales. Our present vehicle is not repairable for us, we need a new engine and still owe approx. $5500 on it. So, now we have a new used car with payments of $450.00 per month and still have to pay for the broken vehicle. We are surviving on a thin thread. We just had to roll up all of the coins we had saved to get household needs such as toilet paper, bread, and milk. We have sold everything we had that worth anything, even our sentimental items. Living like this is so depressing for our family. I truly realize how bad things are for so many in this life.
He (my husband) does need constant care and receives boxes and boxes of supplies here at home and we are not able to lift them. We do get by with help from my daughter. My husband and I both receive social security, I am disabled from the USPS after 25 years, when I had carpal tunnel surgery that left my hands handicapped. I never knew I would be spending my later years, I am 60, like this. I tried to plan for our future, but we have gone through all of our savings. We lost our home and had to downsize to this small mobile home I used to rent out. Thank God we had this. We hate to ask for help, but things are really getting bad for us all.
I will admit, I never thought I would find myself in this situation at this point in my life, but I earnestly have to ask for help. I am past being ashamed, now I am scared. The vehicle was a godsend; our life is more pleasant, although I am not quite sure how we will keep payments up on both cars. My daughter might be able to find a job and get her own place. Any help at all would be appreciated. We are trying very hard to get back on our feet, but the economy is fighting against us. We need help financially and our families cannot help us either. I am ashamed to ask for the amount of $5000.00, but that would pay up our home mortgage and cars, do home repairs and leave us plenty of money for food. If you could help us, it would make two retirees so very happy and give us some peace of mind about our future.
With Very Kind Regards,
Hi. I am a 28 years old guy who leaving in sweden, wish to help my aunt and al my familymembers, and then take suicide then I have helpt them without problem and Everything will just be okay with them in the future which I hope. The reason Why I wrote this letter is Because I search after people who are willing to help me economical situation. I’ve been fooled by a lender who had granted me a loan fees and insurance that I had to pay 569,38euro + 1400euro + 800i fee to I sent money abroad. I just needed help to collect my loan and my relative’s loans into one because they really wanted to be there for her because she has financial worries.
It all started when I helped my relative with money because she had ended up in the hospital and ended up behind in the rent. I had set up for her, and helped her in the pile with everything. Everything seemed fine arrangement until she once again ended up in the hospital with something wrong, and lay there for weeks. I had to pay her rent and the information she had. The time did I, but not the 4th time. I asked my relatives for help, and the rest of my siblings for help. I got a no blank out and asked and begged for their help. But none of these fools wanted to help. One of my siblings have family and had no way to help. But the second that I have put all the energy of 4 years and helped him with money has hardly helped. Instead, he jerks around and travel wherever he wants when one has appealed for help from him with this loan and asked for help in these years of relative’s case.
I took out a loan to help her, For a while things went well. But then she had once again ended up in the hospital and ended up behind with her duties. Now I sit in the problem and as usual I nicely asked for help from my siblings. One of them can understand. But not the other. I asked the rest of my relatives for help. No fool wanted to help. Everything was getting worse and again I might need to borrow and try to pay off all her debts. At the same time I got a second job to help her with everything she had and all I have. There after, it was time to collect the loan back to one. But it was far from over. Liabilities and much more that my relative was behind and had not noticed it and got debt collection from different companies that ended with instant loans. Work until I got next salary. Was fired from the extra work and wanted to eventually collect everything into one again. But it ended with the bank said no to that. So in September I had to pay a lot of bills at the same time got my relative working arselet of himself by getting two jobs as usual. September, October, November, December, January and February, I had to fight.
When I was denied you had to hear that you had other kredituppgivare which was low from the beginning but was denied because of a lot of unnecessary credit that also ends with me into trouble with all the crap that to borrow and at the same time ask my fucking relatives assist and one brother to help, but the same old show, denial.
My plan was to find someone who was willing to lend money so I could both collect all my data in both my and my relatives so I could pay the bill of everything without problems and at the same time paying it all back. I tried to search the entire Internet. wrote in different pages, forums and even wanted to advertise in both newspapers and advertising pages. But none of them wanted to let me record it. I do not beg money. I just wanted to find a lender that I could make a deal with. But what do they do. Nothing. I had to take a risk to look abroad. I had to fuss with three lenders. All three require a fee in advance. I said no to them all, but only one of the lenders demanded money from me just because I chose to cancel the application. I fancy it was strange. But it would be worse if I did not. Time where running. It would give serious situations if he used my data. First 1100kr. Then he demanded in 1600 the bank demanded payment after he did not receive my receipt in time. Everything was ready but as I seek another lender.
A lender who I thought was either Swedish or Norwegian. But it may be that he was either a British or German person. Which I do not know about. For he was also suggested to seek loans from him because he was just searching. His suggestion was that he wanted to find a bank, he could make a deal with. I was hoping it would be here in Sweden. But the conclusion that he opened in Germany. It is called Marina Capital prenium. I was contacted by them and had to give them my information and how much I wanted to borrow. I wrote what I wanted to borrow, and it ended up that I had to wait. But there after, I received an unexpected message that I would add that 569,38euro charge and had to make a loan and pay later. The entire amount was 5800kr + 400kr in charge. I just waited for my contract. But had to wait a week on it. I asked if there was something more. But it was not there. And it ended up they demanded that paid for insurance in case I would die sometime in early age, and many other things that are said in insurance. They asked 1400euro = 14500kr + 400kr in charge. So I waited for 3 weeks. In the meantime, I wanted to find another credit publisher, but there was no one who wanted to set up. I had to ask different managers in different companies, firms for help but only received a no. So people like sitting in large companies as CEO and ranking of billionaires. But wanted to try to search for those who at least had the money I could make an agreement with but found none. and then it was here with the papers, but no one cared to about me. No. so only to pay day, I went all the way to the bank to quickly pay it. I would be contacted quickly. and I would have my money quickly. But got the answer that I would get them until the weekend. Two days it took. I got nothing. I contacted them and asked again (although I am aware that you can not get any money through the internet on a weekend) So I had to contact them on Monday and ask when I get the money. Then it was Wednesday. Now I have been waiting for their response and received no response, and began to fear.
I felt fear and began to fear that I was fooled. I was deceived by a creditor abroad who was willing to lend money so I had to fight for the first time get a loan I could sala data and to pay off everything. But it ended badly. I was fooled by a fool who wrote exactly in the contracts that I wanted to believe in without any fee or insurance prematurely.
Now I lie in trouble and do not know what to do except that I can be threatened with the trustee and to hear a lot of demeaning words like thank you for letting me take responsibility for my relative myself and helped the brothers in need, and I always had to take risk for any of the family when none other than I got set up. And now I also hear that I am not adult enough to take care of me when I have appealed for help relative’s problem. Everything would have worked if everyone helped. But it was only one in the family. And now they have so much bad luck that one can not find other ways to continue the fight while being humiliated by that I do not take any responsibility and so on.
I tried to ask around but no one wanted to help me. Even If <I would ask them for help and pay them back then Everything is finnish. I sand here with a breaked feelings with all chaos I live with. There is no one who could help me. Al I asking for is a loan. I need 64050.56 USD to pay my and my aunts bill, and I don’t know where I should turn to. I’m trapt because of those fakelenders as I trusted. I reportet to our police. The Swedish police. They couldn’t do something from Another country. Not Even if they would report to the countrys police about the situation. I working shit of me and have no where to go, exept to try to get 2 jobs so I can pay fews of bills even If that gonna cost some of my Life. I don’t know. But I need Money fast Untill next week or me and my aunt will be troued to the street and leave in chaos forever.
I honestly don’t know where or how to start with my plight. My issues began in 2004 when my 8 year old daughter was sexually assaulted by a teachers 13 year old son which turned nasty for 4 years. My daughter had to leave the school, was branded a liar and now suffers manic depression, which saw her attempt at taking her life more than twice and on the 3rd attempted nearly succeeded.
In 2005 I took the plunge with barely any funds behind me and opened a fish processing business, as I live in a small fishing community, it did exceptional well in its first year. In 2006 my daughter was diagnosed with a blood disorder ITP which saw her spend weeks in hospital each time it reoccurred hooked up to drips and as she was a minor I needed to remain in hospital with her, I had no alternative but to hire a manager to run the business. That same year the hired manager staged a break-in stealing a large sum of seafood and destroying what was stored in the freezers, causing a huge loss. It also came out during the investigation that she had stolen the sum of $57,000 or more in money from the business and wrote fraudulent cash cheques. It wasn’t until I had debt collectors on my door that I became aware of what the business owed to creditors and how much was actually stolen. This was due to her redirecting the business mail to her own personal post office box. Three months later in 2007 I had to shut the business down which broke my heart. I had to find several different jobs to pay the debts off, but with a 10 & 8 year old it was difficult. My credit rating was shot and trying to pay living expenses too was extremely hard.
The thousands I had to pay to creditors took me years, not to mention the taxation the business still owed. I sort legal advice but as the hired manager did not have a cent to her name I could not get a cent from her, all she received was a black mark against her name and 3 months good behavior bond.
I have tried to make ends meet and have refinance my home to pay off some of those debts but as my credit rating was imperfect I had to go with a finance company that charged huge interest.
I have suffered depression since the business breakdown, but found a reasonable paying job as a store manager for a big box company which helped keep my depression at bay. But did not take away the mounting taxation debt that kept rising due to daily interest.
In 2013 my grandmother who I helped nurse for 12 months died and in June of the same year my daughter of 16 years gave birth to a baby and left town. I have taken care of him since he was a month old and treat him as my own. I love him with all my heart but with a teenage son and now 3 year old toddler I am struggling even further.
I now have a taxation debt in the amount of nearly $500,000. I’m trying to plead with the taxation company to help me and see fit to remove some of the debt but they don’t seem to be that interested. I also now have a good accountant as my previous billed me $13,000 for doing nothing and would not hand over my file to the new accountant until I paid up first. The old accountant had not lodge my tax returns for the whole 7 years I was with him which saw huge penalties being added to the tax debt. I just cant seem to catch up and I am at my wits end where or what I can do. My home doesn’t have enough equity in it to get enough to pay the taxation company and it’s mounting daily in interest is literally killing me.
I realise that this is an extremely high amount of money to ask anyone for or to even partial ask for, but I am desperate and don’t know what to do or who to turn too. I don’t want myself or my children to end up homeless and with nothing.
I’ve tried, I’ve really fought hard but I am so drained and about to give up.
If anyone is able to help with advice or any help of any nature I would be forever indebted to you.
I’ve tried to post a picture now too and every file I chose I am told is not supported. If you would like photos I would be more that happy to provide you with any evidence you need.
She was sold into human trafficking when she was 15 months old. Now at age 36, she is free. There are no programs set up to help a person who has had a life in bondage in the same society that grew up Dick and Jane. She is bright (very high IQ) and catches on quickly but she hasn’t had the same family life that most have, well that any have. She was sold from man to man to man her whole life. The cruelty she has endured is fantastic, but her attitude is optimistic! She wants to have her own home. Learn how to cook and deal with her new life. She doesn’t have job skills. She needs therapy and some medical care. She is much like a frightened and abused animal that startles at every quick movement or loud sound. She has a beautiful singing voice and can play the piano by ear incredibly. She needs clothes that fit her. She needs a bed and bedding. She needs dishes and the housing things that most have, (vacuum, broom, couch, cleaners, etc) and of course the most important thing, a home. She would feel like she had absolutely died and taken to heaven if she had a piano of her own. We have all searched for anything in the country that could help her acclimate to things now and have come up empty handed. Financial assistance for cooking classes, and finance classes, for grocery shopping assistance, and stress management techniques… all the things we learn as children growing up – she needs this help now. She is more hopeful than any other person that I have seen removed from the human trafficking networks here in the United States. She is also the oldest we have found alive that refused to become an abuser and continue the cycle of human trafficking and she has suffered greatly at the hands of those who ‘owned’ her because of it. She got away long enough to call the human trafficking national hotline, and they connected her to the FBI. The rest, as they say, is history. She didn’t want her face on here, but I was able to take these of her holding the bottles that doctors have given her to take, most until she can get acclimated to things as they are now. She really has had a life of darkness and pain. I want to show her that not all people are awful and abusive. I want her to see that there are people out there that will care and that she isn’t going to be left alone to die on the side of the road. I do not have the money to give her, but I have some time and I searched google and found this place. She does not have a family that she can count on as it was her family that sold her. She has depression that she hides with a smile. She has, what seems to me, major OCD because she cannot let her food touch, and the little belongings that she does have are in order and perfectly straight. If something is not straight and neat she gets a little upset. I am sure some post traumatic stuff too I mean how could she not? Anyways, please donate to help her out. She needs a big shot of support, and she is absolutely worth it.
My name is Jennifer Schultz. I am a 46 year old female who got herself mixed up with a very controlling and abusive guy 10 years younger than me. I thought he was the perfect guy for me at the beginning of 2013 when we started chatting online. We chatted for over a month and he was everything I ever wanted a partner to be.
I lost my place to live so his family (he lives with his mom and dad) agreed to let me live in their home with this guy. I had a few rules which I followed. I had to help keep the house clean, do laundry, do dishes, and any other chore asked of me. I helped with the cooking and baking as well. It was all going smoothly for the first few months. Then he and his family started changing. He would yell at me all the time. His mom and dad would say mean things about me behind my back. I caught them a few times when they didn’t think I was listening.
That went on like that for over a year. I took it because my boyfriend kept making all these big promises to me about how we were going to live in the future. He would tell me it’s just going to be a bit longer and we will be out of here. Well he broke every single one of his promises to me.
After the first year of living with his parents they decided we could live in the tiny cottage on their property. This cottage is around 300 sqft in size. It has no running water and no plumbing. We do have a tiny fridge and cook stove. The oven on the stove doesn’t work. We do have a microwave, but have to unplug most other items to run the microwave.
My boyfriend will not let me work unless it is with him in his construction business. He is an awful boss. He will sit on one of his machines yelling out orders that I have to follow or I get yelled at. He doesn’t pay me for my work. Last year we worked 7 days a week for 4 months and he didn’t care how tired or worn out I was.
When we get in an argument he throws temper tantrums like a 2 year old. He has to get his way at all times. He will throw things across the room or kick items across the room if he doesn’t get his way. If he is really mad he swears and screams those swear words at the top of his lungs along with throwing items or kicking items. He has physically stopped me from leaving the house to get away from him by grabbing my arm or arms. He has a very strong grip. He also weighs 325 pounds and I only weigh 225 pounds. So he has all that extra weight putting the brakes on my leaving.
I have found a way to get me out of this situation but I need money to do so. I thought about stealing from my boyfriend but I don’t want to go to jail. So I am asking complete strangers to help me out if you are so inclined. I have a cousin that lives in Michigan and I live in Minnesota right now. He will let me move in with him, but I have to find my own way there. I checked U-Haul and a moving truck for a one way trip will be about $600. I also need money for fuel, insurance, food, and hotel for one night. I cannot make the trip in one day so I will have to get a hotel room. I am thinking the rest of the items will cost $600-$800. So I need a total of $1200 – $1400 to get away from this abusive bully and his mean parents.
I have tried the sheriff and different shelters. The sheriff would take me and a small suitcase into the town I live near and drop me off. The shelters won’t help me because I am not abused enough for them to help me. I need to be bloody and bruised I guess to qualify as abused so they could help me. I am desperate to get out of this situation. I will have a very safe and secure home with my cousin if I can just get there. Please find it in your heart to donate to my cause. Thank you and God Bless.
I lost my mom a in 2011 to cancer, watched it tear her apart everyday for 7 months. I could have used financial assistance back then, considering my step dad was disabled and they didn’t have much money.
I have made my share of mistakes throughout my life and I tried to run away from my grief and moved away when she died.
She had a tough upbringing and because of this had little to do with her family.
She left my father when I was a baby and consequently he put little effort into being a part of my life and his side of the family even less.
I was most familiar with my step dad’s family from age 4 (1976) when he married my mom and until she died. He ended up going his separate way afterwards.
For the most part it was just the three of us and my mom was the heart and sole of the family. She was always unconditionally in my corner and raised me with unwavering love. I gave her a billion hugs and told her how much she meant to me a billion more. When she got sick I could no longer hold her because it caused her too much pain and the last two weeks she could no longer recognize me.
I have ended up in a significant financial bind. I have no where else to turn, out of options and just about out of hope. I have not seen my friends for a few years, we are not even speaking at the moment and I take half of the responsibility for this. I haven’t been too easy to get along with since my mom died. It has been a very trying and lonely experience.
I need at least $15,000 for travel back home, vehicle maintenance, rent and living expenses to hold me until I get back on my feet.
I am not a criminal, do not currently owe any money, do not have any kind of substance abuse issues and I haven’t even received a traffic violation in at least decade.
I greatly appreciate your time, consideration and help.
This is going to sound bad. Well, it is bad. The love of my life, my wife, is hopelessly addicted to prescription painkillers. I’ve been trying to get her help. Instead, she locked me out of the house and threw away most of my belongings. I’ve been homeless for 4 days and I haven’t eaten or slept in that time. Every time I go back to the house to try to make up with her and take care of her, she becomes violent because she thinks I’m going to flush her drugs again. She hit me with a shovel and tried to stab me. I was forced to leave with just a hoody and a pair of sweatpants. It’s been pretty cold at night. There’s still snow on the ground. My health is fading fast. I couldn’t go to work today because I got arrested for trying to sleep under a bridge. I get paid next Friday but I only make a little over $200 a week. I need to get a place of my own so I can get my kids in a stable environment. If you could help me with some money for food and a hotel for at least a night so I can finally sleep, I would be eternally grateful. All I have is my phone and my charger. The bill is due April 1st and its $476 because she said she was going to pay it last month with the money I gave her but of course that never happened. My life is spinning out of control. I have work in 4 hours and I haven’t been to sleep or eaten anything in almost 96 hours. My feet are destroyed because I have to keep walking. Every time I sit down somewhere for a little while, the cops come and harass me and tell me to find somewhere to go. Go where? I have nothing. I just keep walking.
I havent tried begging, so let’s give this a go!
I’m a film student that’s super passionate about what I’m doing.
I have 2 part time jobs but I’m barely able to cover my rent and travel living in London.
My student loan goes mostly on paying off debts I acquired last year whilst in a terrible state.
I’ve got nothing left and my student overdraft has been at -900 since last year when I had to pay rent at my very expensive halls (that I had to leave because of that). Since then, it’s only had the odd few pounds in and out.
I owe close to £5000 to debt collection agencies and I have had many breakdowns over the past year stressing over this.
The fact that I’m not able to concentrate on my work as much as I’d like to because I have this lingering thought in my head of how much I owe differently people that I become paralysed and cannot do anything.
I have been screwed over by different agencies (renting a room) and have lost around £500 to them.
I don’t have any support from my parents. They do try but they’re not in the best state themselves so they really can’t afford to help me.
I have thoughts of just leaving uni and leaving london because I can’t deal with all of the stress anymore.
I can barely afford food or any other kind of luxury. I was homeless last summer and have been homeless the past 3 months, only just finally moving into a flat the start of this month. (Though thankfully, I’ve had friends that have accommodated me both times)
I’m not someone that asks for help, I’m stubborn like that.
But I’m at a loss. I don’t have money for travel to go to work and won’t get paid til the end of this month. I’ll barely get anything though I had so much uni work to do I hardly had time to work (I work as a bartender with a 0 hour contract).
I won’t be able to pay rent this month and will have to ask to pay for it with next months rent when my loan arrives.
I’m just so upset and stressed out and cannot keep living like this.
I need help.
Thanks for reading if anyone did!
I am not special,
I’ve known this for a long time, though i’m only 23 years old I have believed that fact for as long as I can remember, I believe a person gets what they work for and they should be happy with that, and I was since my first job when I was 16. So when I have resorted to asking for money I hope it shows how badly things have gone for me in less then three weeks.
My name is Blake and I am a CNC Operator I work Monday through Thursday, eleven hour shifts and I volunteer to work Friday though I rarely get too, I make 14.50$ an hour. It takes me 30 minuets to drive to work. My car has been with me for three years, it is a Pontiac Grand Am, two weeks ago I started having trouble with the engine temperature, so I took it in to be fixed, long story short I was told multiple things that were wrong with it and it would be 680$ fix, so I shelled out the cash from my savings and that weeks paycheck, four days later the engine trouble began again, I called the Bell-tire location I took it in they said it wasn’t their problem if I wanted to take it in again it would cost more, I was not happy.
I took it to another repair shop and was told the head gasket was blown (something Bell-tire should have noticed) and would be around four thousand to fix and just them checking it and the tow truck cost me 180$ so my car is dead for good, every thing I’ve saved is gone, I cant pay rent and ill be evicted if I cant pay soon, my bills have stacked up to the point where im hesitant to even buy food, and with no way to get to work I have resorted to walking, its a seven hour walk too and from work, I sleep maybe 3 hours a day.
In three weeks I will be able to pay my bills, however I don’t think I will be able to manage it, I am already mentally and physically drained, and so I came to the first site I could find, I truly don’t even know if anyone will ever read this, or even if this site is real, but fortune doesn’t favor those who don’t try.
So this is me trying, I am asking on my hands and knees for help.
with 800$ I can afford a car from a used car dealership near me, it will help me get to work and I would be grateful to you for as long as I live.
Please help me help myself.
Hi, I’m a student and getting to and from school is becoming a little bit of a struggle lately. Since I don’t live on campus, I drive to school since there’s no bus transportation, and it’s would take me hours to walk. My education is really important to me, and it’s not possible for me to work more without dropping out. My parents try to help out when it’s possible for them to, but it’s been a little difficult and they can’t give much more right now. I don’t need a lot; I just need enough to help me pull through until I get paid next. Gas is pretty expensive, and I really want to continue learning without the fear of not knowing how I’m going to get to school.
I’ve been working really hard to save money. I live at home with my parents, I don’t go out much, I cook myself instead of getting fast food, I don’t have a nice car. Basically I can’t afford to buy any luxuries that most people can. School is just so much that it’s hard to pay for the little things, like gas. I’m so close to getting the education required to get a job so that I can properly provide for myself. Until then, it’s hard to break the cycle. It’s overwhelming.
I’ve worked hard all year with my assignments and tests, and although it wasn’t always the easiest thing to do, my grades are fairly impressive. Working and being a student has proved to be an extremely challenging task, but I’m stronger than quitting. I can’t let this make me back down. I refuse to let something so small as not being able to get gas force me to stop considering how far I’ve come. Unfortunately in order to prevent myself from not having a choice but to quit, I have to swallow my pride and ask for a little bit of help. I’ve always been a very stubborn person, and asking for things is not something I like to do; I try to avoid it if at all possible.
I refuse to let my situation define me. I am more than financial problems, more than struggling to get my education, more than stressing about gas money. Please help me overcome this. It’s a small thing but very important. Without an extra little push, everything is too much for me and my family.
My girlfriend and I are deeply in love we’ve been together for a few years now. We plan on getting married but times have been really tough we had 1 vehicle. I was taking my fiance to work one morning 295 North going towards Washington DC I hit a pothole then hit the guardrail and totaled my car, luckily me and fiance are both safe. Most of are belongings and property Ross on the vehicle every lost that so we basically have the clothes on our back and some extra we got from others who helped us. But that vehicle was one thing that we had that we really needed that was keeping us both on our feet. Since we lost the vehicle we lost our place where we were living so we’re both are separated from each other it’s so very hard I worry about her all the time, it’s so depressing, lonley and very stressful, trying to be together when we have nowhere to live it sometimes we were living in our car but we were just happy because we were together that’s all we needed was each other. Being apart right now it’s hot so so hard I can’t stop crying and I’m the guy I’m supposed to be strong she’s so very strong because she can do it I just worry about her.I Feel really low, for asking for help, I wish we had a place that we both can stay together, I wish we had another car because whenever we didn’t have a place to stay we stayed in the car together, even when we didn’t have gas or food we were still together we were always happy I love will overcome anything because we had each other right next to each other always now staying apart it’s just so depressing and lonely without her. I’m a guy I can deal with much more than she can but she so strong and she deals with it without making me fell like I’m not a man because I can’t take care of her. I need her in my life she’s my second hand she’s my everything and I know what she’s going through this way harder because she’s beautiful female guys just want to hit on her and offered her a place to stay for favors and other sexual stuff which makes me feel really bad that she has to go through that because we lost our car we lost a lot but just leaving one thing I never thought life would be this hard and I love my fiance I just want together again even if we’re just living out of a cheap car I’m asking for help but this time for a car enough money to buy a decent car to get us to and from work so we can get us a place”home”again and even small place to stay with a bathroom for both of us that’s all I’m asking for…
My name is Lawrence Etta Morris. I am just a simple lady from the south who has found myself in a terrible situation. I currently live in Noblesville Indiana. I am originally from Texas. I have always been a decent person and lead a normal life.
I am educated and I have a decent paying job and I make about 67,000 a year. This a new job for me and I work for a company called SmartIT. I am a Sharepoint Architect. I have never been in trouble in my life. I live, eat, exercise, mind my business, work and pray. For the past 6 years, I worked for another company where I made a very good salary and much more than I make now.
I lost that job. After depleting my 401k and the little I have saved I am barely making it. I have been floating along. I have always worked hard and earned my own way. I have always been able to live in nice suburban neighborhoods, have a nice car, pay my bills and take care of my responsibilities. I am 47 years old and I have three adult children. Two live on their own and my youngest which is my daughter lives with her father.
They are great kids. Me and my ex-husband have a great relationship but he is out of work as well and cannot help me. I have never asked anyone for anything. I have a lot of family but none in any good financial status where they can help me so I have nowhere to turn. I have searched the internet for ways to make money or get loans but they all require lots of time or funds I do not have. Many are scams and I have no time or money to lose. As of last year, I found myself in a huge mess and financial despair.
I lost my job, house, car and all my money. I wrote a bad check 8 years ago, and it just now surfaced and I had no idea about it. I was charged and took a plea and I am now on probation for 2 years. It was only a total of $600 but there were two. Never been in trouble before. This just recently took place this year. Then I had charges pressed against me from my prior job and now I am facing felony charges for something I did not do. I have a lawyer but cannot afford him.
I need to pay $1500 to be with me in court on March 21st. Two days from now. I do not have it. I do not qualify for a public defender because I am working and make too much. My salary barely pays my bills. For the first time in my life I have now been in trouble twice and I am overwhelmed. I was raised in a Christian home and never done bad things. I finally got a new rental house but due to all my bills I am catching up on I am not able to make my rent this month plus the deposit I still owe.
All my furniture is in Storage and about to be auctioned off because I have an outstanding bill for 1200. Right now, I need $3100 to catch up my rent plus deposit to keep from losing my place. $1500 for my attorney and $1200 to save my life which is in storage. I do not know anywhere else to turn. I do not have a bill from the storage place it’s all online but your site says I cannot send an online shot. I have attached my attorney bill. I can give you the names and numbers of each place I owe and so you can check that everything I am saying is authentic and true. I will give you any information you need. I just need help ASAP. No later than Monday March 20th if possible. Please email or call me I will give you any information you need. My number is 317-389-4932.
Please help I have nowhere to turn. $7000 will help me with everything and I can get back on my feet and maintain everything else out of my paychecks. I am just in desperate need of this to help me immediately so I do not lose everything. Please help
Hello, first let me say I am a person with alot of pride and do not like to ask for anything. But I have come to a place where my mother and I are in need of help. She has doctor bills and medications she has to buy for her diabetes and I have debt that is causing us stress and I would like to help her more but I’m in between jobs and unemployment is not enough. If it ain’t one thing it’s another. So, if you could be kind enough to donate anything would be GREAT BLESSING TO US. And if possible I will pay back if need be. Thank you for taking time out to hear my story.
Hello, my name is Dustin, I’m 30 years old & married with 4 young children all under age 10. We lost our home this past September due to a flood and lost almost everything we own. It was a devasting tragedy to say the least followed by a financial crisis and a tremendous hardship. We lost sentimental items that cannot be replaced. Since we had no choice but to move with my wife’s grandparents in there 1 bedroom trailer with my family of 6 and the 2 grandparents. Sleeping & living is difficult beyond belief. I’m reaching out asking for help from someone out there who would be willing to help me get back on my feet and a place for my family to call home. I will provide frequent picture & video updates of how such a generous donation will be truly life changing.
Once on my feet I will provide and care for my wife & children as any father/husband should. Just getting the help to pull out of this dark hole is extremely diffiuclt. There are few real true genuine people still left out there that could help but if your one of those people please contact with with any questions you might have. We need help bad I just don’t know who to turn to or where to receive help. I stay positive and keep a smile on my face for my wife & children for they depend on me but I’m starting to lose hope after facing 7 months of the most diffiuclt time of my life.I’m starting to believe no one out there will help and I’m mentally exhausted searching for someone to help.
I would also like to say I have been contacted by several scammers this past week acting & pretending they can help me if I pay a fee via western union. Which doesn’t make any sense if there was a few it could simply be deducted from the amount they are donating. They say there is a fee and can’t send it any other way besides Western Union. If you take their bait and you send this so called fee they will keep the money you sent and you will never hear from them again. I find it very rude & offensive for these scammers to come along saying they can help trying to lure in these kind innocent people who are experiencing a hardship and trying to take advantage of them when they are facing a tragedy. What does that say about these scammers? It says everything about the evil within them. These innocent people become targets for these scammers to take advantage of who are in desperate need of help such as myself and they are putting them in another world of heartache. It not only hurts the victims but the children invovled.
Anyone out there who could possibly help my family, my family & I would be very grateful & appreciative beyond words can express. Please contact me via email and I will be glad to answer and questions or concerns.
Hello, my name is Vanessa. I’m a twenty year old student and part-time worker. I know how hard it is to earn money, it is even harder to ask money from strangers. The reason I’m asking for some financial help is due to the fact that I was cast out by my mother November last year. I only had some bag of clothing, my school items and my pet cat. I love my cat and I could not bear to part with it especially with the harsh weather in Canada. On the first week of that ill-fated incident, some of my friends let me stayed at their place, which I am extremely grateful for.
My mom and I had never been in good terms. She left me when I was six months old to my grandparents and I only saw her twice when I was younger; the first time when I was two years old and the second time was when I was six years old. Ten years ago is when we lived in the same household. Since we lived under the same roof, it had been an unsteady relationship. She kept on blaming me on my father’s infidelities, my stepmother, stepbrother, my incompetence and for the other causes for her unhappiness.
Since my mom forced me out, I had to quickly find an apartment to stay in. which resulted a huge expense on my behalf. My monthly salary barely covers my apartment rent, gas, bills and food. I rely on the food bank provided by my school, especially when the budget is tight. Due to this unfortunate event in my life, I’ve maxed out my credit card and I am humbly asking for a 3000$ so I can at least not worry of paying up my credit card. It would ease my mind by not worrying about this to pay. I cannot work as a full-time worker since I am a full time student. I work almost thirty hours per week in addition to my time spent on my studies at school. I do not have the physical and mental ability to successfully maintain full shifts at work and at school. My priority is to successfully complete my study before entering a full-time work. My goal is to someday be someone who can make a change in the world so it can be a better place for everyone. I want to be a doctor and work for Doctors Without Borders to help those who desperately need it around the world. I would extremely appreciate any help I can get, thank you.

I find it hard asking someone to make a donation. I guess we all do.
But when I see homeless children on streets asked me, I knew I had to do it. Wouldn’t you?
The brutal truth is that thousands of children around the world die each day from preventable or treatable childhood diseases. These diseases include malaria (which costs just pennies to treat) and diarrhea (which can be treated for less than one dollar per child).
Unfortunately, in many nations, commonplace solutions are out of reach for desperate parents trapped in crushing poverty. Even right here in the United States, one in five children lives in poverty.
The good news is that, thanks to supporters like us, Save the Children can provide programs that enable parents — and their children — to access basic care that can change young lives.
The Make a Difference Campaign is a special project which will focus to join the community online.
I am a Software developer and My goal is to develop a good going community online with doctors teachers and volunteers.
Ii have a plan need funds for that.
Will you help today? My goal is to inspire my family and friends to help me raise 5000 GBP).
An urgently needed gift of $1 would be a tremendous help and can make a huge difference in the lives of children in need.
You can donate right now and can help me to make a difference.
Even if you don’t donate now Please do share with your family friends and colleagues.
Thank you for helping me makes life better for these deserving girls and boys.
I don’t think anything would make me happier than qualifying for a loan but that’s just not possible at the moment. I have always worked and I have always worked more than one job if needed. It’s a very hopeless and scary feeling to find yourself in a place to need something so badly that you cannot make a way for yourself but that is where I am. After fourteen years of marriage, my husband met someone else while I was pregnant with our fourth child. We have been divorced for almost three years and being a single mom of four with no family or car at the earning potential I now find myself at, life is just as scary as I imagined it would be when I found out I would be getting divorced! I was blessed enough to be given my home but I am so behind on the taxes that it’s a matter of months before I could lose it. I earn just enough to keep the necessities but I have not been able to save anything to catch up on the things that have surpassed my financial capabilities..I was also lucky enough to get to keep my car in the divorce but two months after the engine went and it’s been parked for the last few years while I plan on someday being able to get it fixed, that day is still pretty far off. As hard as it is to have four children and no car it is last on my list of priorities. I have so many infected teeth that I will go out of my mind staying this way much longer. The antibiotics stopped helping a long time ago. I am such a nervous person anymore I make myself sick worrying about the major things. If I can keep my home I can work enough for the rest but since I am at risk of losing that I feel I don’t have much choice but to ask for help! I would be more than happy to repay any help given to me. I have no family to ask.
