I am a 28 year old Army Veteran named Ean. I recently became homeless when I moved to Portland Oregon a few weeks ago. However I continue to try to work and contribute everyday and raise myself from my situation. I recently got a job cooking but I wont get anything out of it for another week and a half and i desperately need to be able to pay for a shower every other day at least for the next two weeks, it costs about $7 a day at a local place that offers paid public showers, so I can at least keep my job till I can get paid and rent a room, and then I wont have this problem. Please help someone who is genuinely trying everything he can and working his butt of to change his situation. All I need is some money to buy a bit of food and keep clean till I can get that paycheck and move up in life. Thanks in advance and thanks for reading and rest assured that one hundred percent of whatever is donated will be paid forward as soon as possible, I am a firm believer in that. paypal.me/KaliCam
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.
So my story is a bit of a sad one. For a few years now i have struggled with depression and i have always found it difficult to find a job that makes me comfortable until i started working at the airport as an aircraft cleaner. It was a job i loved to be in and i was working with my own father which made things so much easier on me. My colleagues were amazing, i loved going to work every day. But like most things in my life it went wrong, I got sexually harassed by an older man at work and was forced to leave my job when my father found out. So when i left my job i went to stay with my long distance boyfriend at his uni, he always keeps me calm and without him i do not know where i would be. He is literally everything to me i have never met someone so supportive of me. I have since had to return home because i have very little money left. I am now in great debt to my family and his mother as they have helped me with phone bill payments, payments for my computer and just money for food. For the last 3 weeks i have been living off a sandwich a day and now that money is running out extremely quickly. My parents cannot support me and I am supposed to be moving away to go to college where my boyfriend lives but i do not even have the money to visit him. I feel like the world is against me and i’m about to lose everything. If i cant see my boyfriend anymore we will end up breaking up and my family hate me because i have no money to pay them back for around £1,500. I am trying so hard to find a job, i have been awake for an hour and i have applied for 7 jobs already. I really just need help. I’m at breaking point.
I wrote this letter for my friend to get assistance. He’s been beaten down by the system so many times he doesn’t even have hope this will work. I ask that you read it and try to help him out. He’s the nicest guy I’ve ever met and he doesn’t deserve the treatment life and his family has given him.
To whomever is concerned,
My name is Brandon Brown and unfortunately, the relative who has previously been supporting me, my grandmother, is in critical health condition and most likely has reached the end of her natural life and will only continue to live through intensive medical treatment.
However, that is not the purpose of this letter. Previously, her ex-husband, my grandfather, had been supplying a small stipend to cover basic expenses, such as rent and small purchases. He turned over the trailer which I had been living in with him to me, leaving it as my own responsibility with a collapsed air duct for air conditioning, rotted sections of floor, completely open sections of floor, rotted walls, leaking roof, infestation of fleas, broken plumbing, possible mold, and dangerously high temperatures being reached in general living areas while having normalized it and refused to do anything to improve the circumstances. I have expended almost all my savings and due to a pending social security case as well as multiple combined mental health conditions, as well as prior trauma, I am unable to work due to my conditions.
My father is a convicted felon currently serving his prison sentence and I am attempting to claim survivor benefits from Social Security, therefore I am unable to get direct support from him. My mother was murdered in her home three days before my fourth birthday, where I found her. The killer was never found, and I was left with various abusive relatives all of which either don’t wish to support me or are abusive and unfit to aid me.
I have a relationship with an undiagnosed autistic woman in a similar age range who was able to compose this email for me, but is unable to aid me either as she has an acoustic neuroma and is recovering from neglectful family.
The one member of my family who was ever able to help me is now dependent on aid herself and now I turn to the goodwill of strangers in a desperate attempt to merely maintain my living space. Sadly, I have already spent all my emergency savings in an attempt to get just furniture that will not collapse under me, functioning cleaning supplies, and clothing as my girlfriend was not fed for so long they had literally nothing to wear. Until the situation with housing is resolved, not only am I in danger but the animals I depend on for emotional support are at risk as well.
Note: The Money is going directly to him. His paypal is unfortunately tied to his Grandpa’s old business. His Grandpa has no way to access these funds and this is the easiest way to donate to him.
I will try to keep it short. I am a 31 year old taking care of 4 stepchildren, and a wife with two blown discs in her back (she refuses to collect disability as a matter of honor) and cancer of the uterus. You can’t help who you fall in love with, I stand by her in all things as directed by the Lord.
I need help to keep a roof over their heads…literally. Trees (I kid you not, 60 feet tall and HUGE) keep falling apart, hitting our home. It’s only a matter of time. I need help to get them taken down.
I lost my job as a construction worker last year, and my credit went in the tank…I was on the verge of losing our home due to unemployment, but have finally stabilized income and am working constantly trying to get back on track.
I have maxed out every credit card for my wife to have emergency surgery to remove her cancer. Prayer and doing that kept her alive. But, I am at 490 currently and cannot secure an emergency loan, I have no family to help either. $3000 is hard to come by.
We are hard working people just in a bad spot. If anyone out there can help in any way, I will repay your kindness however possible. Will work weekends, will send you photos of the work being performed, whatever you need.
Thank you for your consideration and have a blessed day.
So I don’t like asking for help but…….. Help. I am a mom of 2 kids I have a 3 year old daughter and a 10 month son. So my story starts about 5 years ago. I was a young girl and tired of going in and out of foster homes because my adoptive mother was abusive and my dad was a drunk. I moved out while in high school got my own apartment worked and graduated. I fell in love within that time shortly after graduating my parents heard I was moving 6 hours away and drained all my savings account and checking to prevent it. They didn’t know I was pregnant with my daughter. My soon to be husband’s parents helped us even though they weren’t really in the position to. My husband got a job as a pipelayer which is hard labor and long days. As a new mom in a new city with no transportation or child care I tried to go back to school I couldn’t make it to class with no car or bus or someone to watch my baby because my hubby to be was working all the time and we had no extra funds between a car payment rent utilities having a new baby. We made it work as much as possible. Fast forward repeating the I am to broke to save myself to I have just enough to feed our baby I found out we were expecting our 2 child. ( birth control doesnt work for me apparently got my tubes tied now) with things looking even bleaker for us we moved back to my home town and were able to live in a 5th wheel on his parents property. Well unfortunately the 5th wheel is now becoming a serious health issue for our kids . He is still working but only makes enough to cover basics which is more comfortable then what used to be but …….. Our cars engine ceased so now we have no car and soon to be no jobs or income or place to live. I have been working as hard as I can and finding every odd job I can do. I am at a loss at what to do now. I don’t want to one loose my kids to a system that fails me horribly two I don’t want my husband or I to have to sacrifice or morals to survive. Please if you can find it in your heart to help a little budding family it would be greatly appreciated.
I going to keep to keep this short. I’m tired emotionally and physically. Someone just offered to help with donations yesterday. I rarely get my hopes so I don’t get disappointed. To sum it up in the end, they just wanted money from me and played as if they understood what it means to struggle. That they understood how much you give of yourself when asking strangers for what you need. It’s still fresh and I can’t tell my family because it will only hurt them too. That donation could have been the money needed to finally get our family of our current situation. Situation being that my brother filed for disability. Also, that my mother needs to file but can’t because were struggling as it is. The 75,000, will go to allowing her the relief to finally quit her job. She’s fifty-six and has severe nerve damage in both arms and arthritis in her back from a slipped disk. It will sustain us for the period of waiting that comes after filing. Add that to the bills that are piling up and you have a desperate situation and daughter. I hate needing money. Not just because it’s frustrating to not be able to pay for things. No, it is because I need money period. That this little green paper controls my quality of life disgusts me. This donation will sustain us and help me further my plight in schooling and investing. I want to control the dollar not the other way around. I will make sure to never be in this predicament again. I will then make sure in my success to help as many as possible before I close my eyes for the last time.

I’m a father of 5 kids. One is mine the others are not and there father doesn’t pay child support or help with anything for them. My fiance lost her job because we couldn’t afford to pay for a baby sitter. I recently lost my job because I was going to start a new one but last minute they said they were fully staffed. We have asked around at all the agency’s and churches in Williams county and none have any funds. It’s been hard to find help from churches because they have been taken advantage of by people around here who just abuse the system. It’s hard to find any help for honest hard-working people who are down on there luck. I have contemplated suicide because I can’t provide for my family. This is a small closed minded community and they think it is better to arrest and send to jail people who are homeless because it’s easier to get them out of sight. If you would be willing to help us it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
In November of last year, my mother was the victim of a car accident, on her way to work. The driver who hit her had ran a red light, and slammed into the side of her car, completely totaling it. We at first figured this would be resolved quickly, seeing as it was the first car accident we’ve ever been a part of.
We were wrong.
The vehicle that my mother was driving was our only car. It got us to work, it got us to the store, it got my brothers to job interviews. When the car was totaled, we became trapped in our home. We’ve been picking up groceries with the aid of family friends when available, and if not, I walked.
The money we’ve been living off of has been our savings, between my mother, my self, and my brothers, we had enough to hold us out for a couple of months. This has all recently dried up.
We have a new attorney whom is reviewing the case, and seems optimistic, but its going to be a while before this case is resolved, since we’re basically starting over from scratch.
I managed to pick up a job local that offers enough pay for me to take care of our power and water bill, as well as our lot rent. However, I am not pulling in enough money to feed my family. As of this posting, my fridge is empty. We have a couple of packs of ramen in the pantry, and I have 43 cents to my name. I work too many hours to collect EBT, my mother can’t contribute due to injuries, and the loss of her job, and my brothers are unemployed. I can’t even get a loan, due to the state of my non existent credit.
We’re good people. We do what we can to help the people around us. Whenever we’re offered the chance to make a difference in someones life, we do the best we can. We never imagined that this could ever happen to us, not in a million years, and we’re trying to stay positive, but its just so hard to do.
I’m not asking for help buying a new car, or legal expenses, nor am I asking help with bills. I’m just looking for help with food, as that is what is important at this time, and that is what we’re struggling with the most. We appreciate anyone that is able to help, and I appreciate anyone that took the time to read through this.
I’m living in a situation where I do have a job but my boss doesn’t pay me he rather buy what I asked for. But he also has put me in a situation where I’ve gotten hit five one of his clients and I don’t feel safe living in the situation anymore can I please have your help I’m away from my family and it is really an emergency situation. I will include the pictures of what happened to me two days ago when one of his clients broke in the house hit me in my face and kicked over table that scratched my legs. Yes I do get a hold of the authorities but the people had left before they got here. All I’m asking is for help to be able to relocate and get my own place in the town where my family is. I’m in Las Vegas my family is always in Reno and I have no way to them. I’m really afraid to give too much information about my boss but the situation is he on several properties and I live in one of his properties and he flips houses and I work for him basically for free though because I stay in one of his property. It’s almost like he keeps me dependent on him instead of Let Me Be Independent and or my money and be proud of myself. This is a very hard situation to go through I don’t worry my family with the ugly details when I speak to them I just tell them I’m fine. But the way it goes interested in any cost and any means even when it means sacrificing a friend. So what I’m asking is please
YOUR IMMEDIATE, URGENTLY NEEDED FINANCIAL DONATION IS BEING GREATLY PLEADED FOR TODAY! Your much needed help is needed to provide my daughter & I, with the necessities essential to begin the healing process and just get us stabilized, on our very own 2 feet, so that we can move forward and create the new, successful, wonderful lives in which we are so desperately deserving of!
We fled our PA home to create new lives filled with better opportunities due to extreme fear of our lives and safety.
A brutal victim of domestic abuse at the hands of a classified psycho who’s only desire was (and still is) to kill me (free to leave prison since April). Doubled with the horrible, disqusting & embarrassing sexual victimation of a very young, naive, trusting, runway material-gorgeous, yet profoundly mentally abused little girl, which caused a deeply embedded belief of extreme low self worth that ultimately lead to the fictional idea she was involved in her very first “true love “relationship”” experience. Against all warnings, and advice that which clearly could only be seen by unhindered, 3rd party eyes. Until, the sick betrayal became revealed, a week after the breakup of the 5 month “relationship.” When, she was informed by his best friend that during their courtship, she was secretly videotaped, many times. She was completely unaware, and very obviously, unable to, in any way give her consent. He had been blasting these porn videos, featuring MY DAUGHTER, all around, at parties, many viewings during lunch periods at the high school.
IMMEDIATELY ran directly to the police, when we were told that this is not this meager 15 yr old, freshmans first offense of production, possession & distrution of child pornography. Along with that news, followed the very obvious assumptions that a quite strict punishment of very obvious expulsion, and jail time, would very soon, become his fate. Especially with the 2 separate, eye-witness statements, plus the very obvious emission of the crime directly from this boy, saved on my daughter’s phone. However, much to the shock of EVERYONE, not only DID the original investigator that charged him the first time, WILLFULLY and PURPOSELY ,ruin the investigation by simply ignoring it all together, he spent more than 2 hours, blaming, screaming and threatening my own daughter, the victim!!!!!
We both dropped EVERYTHING (I resigned from an amazing, profoundly rewarding career as an Adult Behavioral Health Counselor, my apt, and my car. While my girl willfully but tearfully, left behind lifelong bonds with a ton of amazing friends, family, and her involvement in school sports.)
Our family spent all of their spare money, which was obviously meant for their own children’s needs, to move us both and 100s of lbs of boxes filled with all our possessions, more than 1/2 way across the U.S. to a lifelong trusted friend, who offered us a home and all financial backing, until we were in a secure position to stand firmly on OUR own!
After days of traveling and lugging an additional 85 lbs of luggage from terminal to terminal, we were both horrified and in shock by the unheathy, unsanitary, dangerous, uninhabitable building our trusted friends were residing in with their own kids (delapadated to point of slowly falling apart, filled with puddles of dog pee, disqust, filth, no refrigerator or stove, teeming with gazillions of cockroaches, and not a penny to their name.)
With very, very little savings of our own (We were promised not to add to our burden, by needing $,)We found the help we needed through “crisis connection “, who removed us immediately (quite obviously deciding to leave almost everything I owned, so my girl could fill to the brim of our rescue car, with all her high end, Irreplaceable, belongings.)
We have since remained in a domestic abuse shelter.
Your monetary donations are URGENTLY, & EXTREMELY NEEDED TODAY!
Our ONLY chance of survival, and our DESPERATE need for your extreme generosity, and the loving monatery donations of those like you, are URGENTLY NEEDED RIGHT NOW, and every penny will be spent in strict accordance of our basic needs of survival to just allow us our much deserved, essential needs to allow us to get on OUR feet, TODAY! THERE IS NO TIME TO WAIT!!!
WE USED ALL AVAILABLE COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE POSSIBLE!!!! The $600, in total, from all possible charitable sources in our area, is going directly to pay a small security deposit on OUR very own 2 bdrm apt (which my daughter researched and found completely on her own) and directly to the electric company, just enough to cover the needed deposit for services to be activated, and whatever is left is going directly into our apartment managements hands to contribute to our 1st month of rent!!!!!
BUT, OUR NEEDS DO NOT END THERE!!! WHICH IS WHY OUR DESPERATE PLEA FOR YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT, AND DEDICATION, IS STILL BEING REQUESTED OF ALL OF YOU TODAY!!!!
URGENT donations to supply our exciting apartment with whatever balance will be due, to fill our new home with much needed furniture ( new or gently used, ) “there IS NO shame in our game!!!” As I am making our very first purchase after 4 today, once the price officially drops by 25%, from The Re-store (habitat for humanity thrift shop) for a huge amazing, comfy recliner. Which my princess instantly fell in love with!!!! By my purchasing what I am able through charitable organizations such as there’s, it truly creates both a symbiotic AND “pay it forward” relationship! I’m helping them to help others, by purchasing from them due to my own desperate needs!!! BUT we MUST purchase brand new beds, and even through a thrift store, will still cost me almost 600!! We are in need of a dinette set, furniture, everything you can possibly need for the kitchen and bathroom! It is our desire to get as much as we can through charity-run stores so that, through our own despair, we are able to also help others!!!!!
HOWEVER, THROUGH YOUR GENEROUS MONETARY CONTRIBUTIONS, AND SPREADING YOUR ABUNDANCE OF LOVE, AND DEVOTION….THE VAST MAJORITY OF YOUR DONATIONS MUST BE USED FOR THE MOST IMPORTANT, ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL, MUCH NEEDED (Not desired!!l ) CHEAPEST, YET IRON CLAD, MECHANIZED MODE OF TRANSPORTATION!!!!! The churches pastor is also a licenced mechanic, who spends whatever free time he has at the auction, and has promised to find us the very best, cheapest vehicle, and perform ALL restorative repairs so it’s promised to be tough and reliable (and although he will grant what grace he possibly can, it needs to be paid for and repaired properly, which COSTS $$$$$!)
This is by far the most in demand priority we have. W/O identifying our location, we are located somewhere within the mid-west. WHERE WE ARE COMPLETELY STRAND, IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE!!!! Posively, absolutely, zero buses, trains, cabs, or ride-share companies!!!
FIRST & Foremost, We each MUST get to and from our new jobs, of course! !!!!
The closest town that has bare minimum stores, just over 20 miles. The bigger towns, which of course have a variety of needed stores are an additional 10 to 15 miles.
And, pray tell do I dare utter it? I have a young teenage girl…WE ALL ARE AWARE OF WHERE HER HEART LYES….every parents worst nightmare….the dreaded, yet to a girl entering her 1st yr of high school, MANDATORY …Dare I speak it…MALL!😣😟😤😢😭 Which happens to be more than an hour away, and is the VERY reason she is immediately forced to find a job right along with me!!!
ONLY THROUGH THE LOVING, GENEROSITY OF EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU…WILL WE NOT ONLY SURVIVE, INSTEAD OF YET ANOTHER STATISTIC….BUT WE WILL THRIVE!!!!
With much love, and a very many thanks, in advance!!!
Through YOU, we will spread our wings wide and fly!!!
My name is Alexander and I am here to ask for help from anyone that can. I live in a trailer with my parents and grandparents and we are struggling horribly. My grandfather suffers from alzheimer’s and my grandmother can barely walk on her own now. She was operated on her intestines where they remove a big chunk because a bacteria was eating her inside . If anyone knows a trailer, it has stairs and its breaking me watch my grandma yell and scream every-time she has to go down the stairs for her appointments because of pains. So I want to collect money to build her a ramp instead where she can be strolled down with a wheelchair. Now my grandfather situation I wish we had more money to give him the proper care for his Alzheimer ‘s. It has progress to stage 4 into it. Half the time he doesn’t remember things. I remembered about 2 weeks ago he forgot who I was and I cried so hard. I used to be his champ in everything I did on his eyes and sadly that has faded away. As my parents have to pay for some of the medical bills being appointments, medicines, and miss of work they are struggling in bills. Even with me working it is getting tough. I just want to help my grandparents and parents live a bit more calm. So I ask for a little donation to help them out. Thanks in advanced. Please contact me incase of anything.
Hi my name is Angie… I joined the service after a long time dreaming to be in the army. While I was in I got hurt and they could not find what was wrong until recently. I was discharged two weeks ago and did not know the army sends you home they stop all pay. I still have bills. I have to get my car out the shop my son is going to his first prom ever 8th grade and he wants this slim flower pink and white blazer with loafers to match. I have lights to pay food to put in the house a teenage boy can eat you out of a home and i don’t get assistance and I am a single mother. I do still have my job at Wal-Mart but cannot go back until I’m cleared by the Veterans office which I just was able to put my claim in .. Although I put the claim in I don’t know how long it will take to get accepted or how many doctor visits it will take to tell me I’m able to stand more than 15 minutes to be able to go back to work. I need help right away my sons prom is the 30th and I need my car to be able to go to my appointments to get cleared…I’m real if you have any doubts you can email or call me just ask I can show you my paperwork
Our living situation is unhealthy both physically and mentally. I have a mother who has to work with severe nerve damage in both arms and arthritis in her back. I feel my entire being suffer with her. But, she has to work to make her living. I’m not working because of female problems. My brother has severe depression and bi polar disorder and had to file disability. Working for him just escalated his depression out of control. We had three close calls that I can’t ever forget. My parents’ marriage is tense and bitter. The atmosphere is toxic. It doesn’t help her or my brother as hes very sensitive. My mom has anxiety and high blood pressure. Moving expenses, medical bills, lawyer fees are amongst the problems. The biggest is issue is having enough to pay bills while waiting on disability as it takes so long. My mom has to get in disability but it takes time we don’t have money for. I’m afraid she will collapse from stress and pain. I’m afraid living at this house will cause him to relapse. I’m terrified I’ll lose either of them before we get to start a new chapter.So, here I’am coming to all of you for help. Hoping complete strangers could help us. This won’t solve everything but it would be a start.
Where to begin,.. Me and my 4yr old puppy have found ourselves without a home since September 2017 due to not having enough money for rent. My job unfortunately cut back on everyone’s hours and had been struggling to make ends meat. I managed to get my belongings into a storage facility and with a lil help from a family member I was able to leave a deposit with first and last month and 2 extra months in advance,paid. Family can only help with so much for so long. Now with only working part-time hours and not paying rent I managed enough for food, gas, credit card bills, and paying local YMCA fees to shower and maintain a hygienic status until being let go from work come February 2018. From then my situation went from bad to worse as payments towards my bills and storage facility were delayed resulting in late payment fees being applied. I prioritized food, gas and hygiene and as I mentioned earlier, family can help with so much for so long and helped with the last they could in paying the past two months April/ May. Then here comes the blow that life dealt me the most. Throughout this whole experience my girlfriend who had also been living with me as she went to school while i was working and when evicted we decided she move back to her parents. On March 24, 2018 she passed away of a stroke (heart). I have not been quite the same. That is why I am here asking for help, please. I am fully aware of everyone’s own obligations and responsibilities to yourself and your own family are of outmost importance. Please whatever you can do to help donate financially would and is greatly appreciated and it will increase my chances of being able to get back on my feet much quicker.
Long story short… I lost my home and job, me and my puppy sleep in the car, family feeds us when they are able to, I am emotionally drained and grief stricken because my girlfriend died. I am really to the point of losing my sanity and I don’t know what to do with all this in my current situation. Help. Storage facility Public Storage monthly payment $125 is due, Paypal credit card already in collections $900 owed. Another credit card payment (Capitol One) is late on being payed ($2483 total owed) $248 must send ASAP , personal loan $1248 owed, and lastly $1150 to the IRS for missing a W-2 form on my 2015 taxes……
Am deeply sorry to burden you with this… but Thank you nonetheless for your help.
Hello, I came across.this website whilst searching for extra ways to get money and I’ll try anything now.
My partner doesn’t know i’m doing this but we have collectively spiralled into around £25000 of debt for various reasons, the main one being my partner’s mother who got my partner to be a co signer on 2 loans that were a total of £15000. About a year into the loans she started missing payments and my partner had to pay them. After many fall outs and being ignored by her mother we decided the best course of action was to get a credit card and pay off the loans. We no longer speak to her mother because of this and are now left with her debt.
Because of the extra outgoings with this we also had to start taking out smaller credit cards and loans to get by.
I see no way out now and the debt keeps growing. I’m not hoping for a miracle here but anything extra we can get will help us to avoid our debt building up and delaying us starting a family.
I thank anyone from my heart that is able to help our situation. Thank you so much.
hello. I’m so sad that I’ve got to have to do this but if you’re reading this and in a position to help me, I desperately ask that you do. Any donation is greatly appreciated. I’m a young woman, 20 years old, living alone in a bed sit. I’m unable to work due to severe mental health.. bipolar and borderline personality disorder. Because of this, my income is very limited and my belt is usually tight. This is something I’ve got used to and I count my blessings of the things I do have. Sadly however, correct living conditions are what I’m lacking. My bedsit is riddled with mould and condensation which has attacked the only furniture I could afford and own leading to me having to throw it all out. I need something to be able to sleep on (no bed) and something to sit on. Please please if you’re in the position to help, I’d be forever beyond grateful
Hello to any whom may read this and thank you for your time. I feel bad for having to do this but this is my last resort. My family has recently fallen into hardship. Our electricity has recently been disconnected because we were unable to pay the bill on time.
I am a mother of a five year old and am currently pregnant with my second child due in August. With my inability to work any longer, it has put greater pressure on my boyfriend, whom works but doesn’t make enough to keep up on all the bills.
We were forced to stay at his sisters home, as she is the only family that is willing and able to help us but she has three children of her own and we are all crammed into a small mobile home. We feel terrible about it and are doing everything possible in our power to correct the situation but we aren’t having much luck.
We are not asking for a million dollars or even thousands, just enough to restore our lights so we can move forward and back home. If anyone could find it in their heart to help us, we would be forever grateful.
The total of the bill is 800 dollars. That is the bill itself and the cost to restore the service. Please, any amount would help us.
Hi, I hope whoever is reading this can please help me. My dad took a lot of loans from people in Qatar and he’s gone now. It’s just me and my husband here and all these people have been contacting me for the money. I dont even have a job. I need about $30,000 in total and I would be so grateful for all the help.
Please help me out. I can’t imagine bringing myself to this state but i just don’t know what to do anymore. Please.
Hi! I’m J, and here’s the week I’ve had (and why I need help and to basically beg for donations cause I’ve got no clue and no help from anyone financially)
I JUST started work and in one week I’ve lost my cars brakes and today BLEW my TRANSMISSION! Picture from today included below… I’m 20, broke, and single. Going to school in the fall is my plan after waiting 3 years after high school and regretting it. My 04 Honda Civic blew day 2 of actually working (and after doing 3 weeks of online training). Out of nowhere…
I know a decent amount of my car, but it was the first time I felt the transmission slip, I never have had any issues until this week. and it didn’t take long… About 15 minutes later I’m stuck with no gears falling back down a hill on an intersection with traffic. I lost my brakes on the highway earlier this week as well! It’s unbelievable! I’m going 65, then all of a sudden when I press the brake I hear what sounds like farting noises and my pedal goes to the floor! Luckily I was able to stop, thanks to the e-brake and nearly pumping the brakes off the damn thing. I spent my last bit of money that I had for brake fluid, have it looked at, and also spent my last 10 today on Bars leak transmission stuff that my mechanic that I called recommended. (Which didn’t work).
I don’t have anything and I feel like I don’t know what to do. The money used will go towards repairs/very cheap, driveable Craigslist car. Estimated cost of repairs (even used transmissions) are from 1200-2500 from what info I’ve gathered. I also figure I could maybe get like a beater for 600-800??
If you DO donate any amount to me, I will send a personal video and perform an Oath to promise to pay it forward, either back to the person(you), someone in need who’s in my position down the road, or whatever the situation makes it. I feel helpless, but I do feel inclined to do my part even if it’s a donation, make sense??
Thank you for taking the time to read this, below is the link to donate to me and to help me with this slump I’m in. God Bless!
I am asking for help because two months ago my bank account was hacked, and it nearly wiped out all of my money which in turn caused all of my checks to be returned, and not to mention the over draft fees from the bank but fees from the creditors I wrote out the checks to. Now if I was working maybe I could see myself getting back on even board, but in my case I’m on an fixed income monthly from social security disability. No I’m not able to work, so with that being said by the time the next month came I was even deeper in dept, and it’s getting even worser because I don’t get enough monthly with my income to double up on my bills and pay off all of the fees, I can only afford to pay some but not all and that’s not enough to get on even board. Before all of this happened even though I was on a fixed income I maintain and budget so that I was able to stay on even board with my bills, because I’m by myself and this is how I get by from month to month. I guess it would be save to say I would need a 1000 to get caught up, but at this point any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank in advance p.vance
hello good afternoon
i am typing this message on my lunch break now as we speak. A little info. About myself I am 32 years old Kansas I moved to New Jersey about seven years ago, so I have no family where I live. I have three kids ages 16 12 and 5 years old. Two boys and one girl. I just started this job April 25 of this year.
I was staying with My ex fiancé which is the reason why I moved from Ks to Nj. We were living In our own house and decided to move due to gun violence and drugs. We would find drug bags, needles, And people shooting up in front of our house regularly. So we moved in with his mom, somehow she was doing what she said was a rent to own deal and she lapses on payments so we had three days too move out.
I put money on a house already for rent but the rent was 1500.00 a month.
my car insurance is due tomorrow and need money to get through the week. My next paycheck of 700 is next Friday but have no money for gas.. and my kids until then and no family here to help.
All I’m asking for is 500.00 just to get through the week for food and gas etc. going down to social services is a long process for my situation right now if
anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks and God bless!!!
Hello guys! I am very sorry to be asking for help. I’m just in a rough patch in my life. I have pressure on my shoulders to find a job, but for an individual like me who has a progressive disability, it’s not all that easy. I want to get a job where I can work from home for my convenience since there are days I am weaker than others. I do receive SSI from the state because of this, but it is in no way enough to start my own life. I would really love to move out from my parents’ home to do this, but for that, I need money, which in turn means I need a job. I have been doing small gigs here and there online to make money, for example, I design t-shirts and different apparel on TeeSpring, I also take online surveys so I can get some extra cash, I even look into iPhone applications I can make a little money from, I also starting my own blog that never seemed to take off. To be very honest, I was hoping my TeeSpring store would take off so I could finally say I had a job and did it myself, but I wouldn’t say making two sales off of it is taking off. This is why I feel really bad for asking for help along with other reasons. The online business is very competitive, and for someone like me I need to be working online, but it’s hard finding anything online that isn’t a scam nowadays. I even didn’t tell my parents how hard it’s been finding an online job, I only told them that I want to take a break for a year, but they don’t know I have been continuously looking. I’m Hindu so I pray to my Gods every single day hoping that my career will take off, hopefully, it will come soon!
Please only donate if it is comfortable for you, and I only ask this because I don’t want anyone to regret this because I sincerely appreciate everyone that is willing to help me during this time, and thank you in advance for donating. Another way of donating is to go through my TeeSpring shop at https://www.teespring.com/stores/devas-store and seeing if there is anything you like, that would make me the happiest since I can at least give something back to you guys this way. Thank you so so much for any way that you guys choose to help! I appreciate it way more than you know!

Any amount is appreciated! Thank you all for reading <3 have a wonderful day~
Dear potential donor,
I am a mother of three. I work 40 hours a week, and my husband also 40+ hours, we have 3 babies in the home and also take care of my mother in law. It has been hard to keep up financially, while trying to pay bills and mouths to feed, we have been without a car for over a year, so its been hard trying to get to work and doctors appointments, and even grocery shopping. Recently I decided to take a small loan out to try to get a vehicle, and was ran around in circles. Now i have this debt on top of a student loan to pay, and I am really trying to not show my weakness to my family. I am a very stubborn independent woman, and have a hard time asking for help, but I am asking now for the sake of my family. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Mainly i ask for help with this small loan i took out and groceries and expenses for diapers for three little ones. Loan amount was $1500, and groceries monthly all together we spend about $550. Thank you so much for the time to read this, and any consideration.
Hello, my family is in desperate need of help. We have four children and our fifth was born 18 weeks premature. We have been fighting through for ten weeks now but being back and forth, as she is 1 hour and half from our home, has taken its toll financially. We are living separately so one of us is with our other children and one of us is with her, which is also a financial burden. While I stay at the Ronald McDonald house near her my husband is home with my other children. Because of this my husband barely makes enough to cover gas for trips to see her. We are desperate and don’t know what to do. With summer coming my older kids need clothing and we need almost everything a baby needs to bring her home. We’ve exhausted help from family and are so lost on what to do now. I can barely eat and sleep, everything feels like its crashing down on us in the worst way. She still has momths before she can come home due to an illness that has caused her to have to have surgery at just 4 days old and another one coming on June 1st. We are lost, broken, scared and don’t have many options that have been working for us. We just need a little help so we can continue to push further without losing everything in this long process. Thank you for your considerations and any help that may be received would mean everything to me right now.

Hello I’m a single mother with six kids that I absolutely love. I’ve currently been struggling with bills. I recently lost my job and been going through a rough break up. I’m taking care of my kids all on my own. And let me tell you it’s incredibly hard. I’ve missed my installment fee on my electric bill now I have to pay 790 in full by Friday May 25th. I normally don’t do stuff like this but this is something my kids and I absolutely need. I keep a smile on my face everyday just so my kids don’t ask questions or think I failed them. So I’m asking for a kind gesture. Any donation would help. I just need a blessing. I don’t ask for much in life but this is absolutely needed. So if anyone could help it would greatly appreciated. God bless you
Hello everyone you can call me bubba as everyone does who know me I came to this site in desperation mode.I am no better nor am I lazy I have worked my entire life and have been employed driving trucks over the road for the last 15 years.I received a call while in MI from a sister saying cps took her kids because of her drug abuse which I knew nothing about.I drive for 2 or 3 months and take 3 days off with the family.these kids are my life my world who i love dearly.cps said I would have to stop driving and get a local job where I could be with them at night.so I quit my job and then I had to get all the money I had and put my 2004 pickup up st the bank to afford a lawyer.then cps said I need to get a house,furniture, and utilities turned on which I don’t have money to do and even tho I’m looking for employment it’ll take 4 to 6 months to afford all this and I’m afraid ill lose the kids to foster care.Being injured on a job at 16 left me unable to reproduce which led to several failed relationships.So I took these kids under my wing and financially supported them all their 13 years.They ask me to hurry and get them so they won’t go to foster care,i just bowed my head in shame and told them I am doing all I Can and will never stop trying.Now I find myself unemployed, homeless, alone and broke to no fault of mine,and ever with these hardships I’m facing I would do it all over again for these kids.I’m in a tunnel with no light at the end and I pray God will intervene and send help my way so I can get these 2 beautiful kids whom I love more than my own life.Please everything helps and is appreciated and is a blessing .Lord help me I pray to be able to help this young man and young lady to stay with family .I beg for mercy and forgiveness Lord. paypal.me/HillChildrenFund
In 2015, I was covered up by a roof fall while working in an underground WV coal mine. I suffered a fractured back, leg and foot. I was extremely lucky to keep my life, but I never set foot back in a coal mine again. I filed for my disability in January 2016, and have been denied benefits 3 times and currently waiting for a hearing date before an administrative law judge for yet, another appeal for SSI that I’ve paid into all my life until I was unable to work, because of my debilitating injuries. Now that I’m physically incapable to produce for our government, and have completely lost everything I’ve ever owned, it doesn’t matter. Social Security does not care, your just a number, and nothing more. I was divorced from my wife of 10 years that produced our 10 and 8 yr old daughters. I lost my home, vehicles, property, my bank accounts are empty and in the negative, and anything I owned with any kind of value is gone. Every dollar I had left I spent on a lawyer and court costs because I learned my ex wife was physically striking and abusing my 10 yr old daughter and I was awarded full custody in March of this year. My ex wife and I currently share custody of our 8 yr old daughter, only because I could not prove she was being mistreated, nor did I have anymore money for another court battle or lawyer. Until then, my girls had never spent a night away from each other, but I had no choice but to take my oldest from her abusive mother. Now they are seperated, 3 hours travel time, one way, apart from each other. Just to see how these 2 sisters grieve for each other is unbearable, it rips me to pieces, and my ex wife of course, fights me tooth and nail over anything and everything. I have tried everything I can possibly think of, and I am at rock bottom with it all. There was a time, a strong, proud, and hard-working father of 2, would have never even considered asking for help. I am out of options and they are suffering and I can’t do anything about it on my own, so I am praying for help, so we will see, I’ll never give up on them. If I was physically able to work and earn, or the government would do the right thing, my daughter’s and I would be just fine. Unfortunately, those aren’t my options. I need money for food, hygiene products, transportation, utility bills, clothing, medical expenses, court costs, everything a father unable to work for to provide for 2 little girls. $50.000 would get us in a home and keep us from starving, that’s about 1 year of my old wages.
in a matter of days my whole world fell apart. One day living with my longtime partner, with my 2 dogs in our ( his) home. Suddenly I became “too old” for him, and he asked me to leave He was the main supporter, I have no savings, no home, and no dogs since I couldn’t take them with me ( it wasn’t in their best interest) I have a small amount of debt $2800, and trying to come up with 1st last and security to move into my own place seems insurmountable right now. I started cleaning houses and am making money and work till I’m exhausted but there isn’t enough time in the day to work to make as much as I need to get back on my feet. Most places don’t accept pets so I looked at the possibility of maybe purchasing a home, the monthly mortgage seems cheaper that most of the rent I see, but with no money to put down and no real verifiable income let alone being in my 50s, there isn’t much chance of that happening. I’ve worked hard my whole life, haven’t made the best choices concerning myself ,( but would always help others in need) and never had extra cash to save or put in retirement so there aren’t a lot of options left for me. When I can’t take care of myself anymore, exiting this world will most likely be my only option. So… that’s where this desperate plea comes in. I hear people with money always say “ it’s only money “ and if that’s true for any of you, then please help. I’m ashamed to have to ask and put my situation out here like this. I’m hoping to stay somewhat anonymous as to not embarrass myself anymore than I am already being in this situation. It’s a strange world now where anything can happen, so I’m hoping for the best. I know there are people worse off than me that peopbaby are more need than me, but right now I feel like I am in the darkest time in my life and figure what do I have to lose by trying this, I doubt it can make things worse than they are. Thank you to anyone that this resonates with and chooses to help.
I have truly made a mistake and I am trying real hard to fix it. I forgot to pay my electrical bill. We had to use our savings that we are trying to save up for a car. I also had to borrow form my daughter that is going to collage. I also have used my credit card to the max to try and fix my mistakes. I am not sure how I am going to fix it. I have a job and I am trying real hard to get everything caught up. I just need to get over this bump in the road. We lost our child support lays year due to my daughter turning 18. We did not realize how much that impacted us. Also i work for a small town school that does not pay the most. Then I have to fins a summer job. I found on that I can keep so I do not always have to look. But that pays less then my school job. My husband also just got a new job last year so that was a drop in pay also. It is way less stress and way less driving time. Everything just is not adding up. I am hoping that if you help that we will get out of this rut and get a better hold on our finances. It is so weird that a few changes can totally throw your whole world up side down. We have also had another stresses in our life. My mother in law has stage 2 breast cancer. We have been preparing meals for her and her husband so that is one less item that they have to worry about. That also added to our food bill. My husband did not think that would impact us that much but it did. We have also thought about starting up a breeding and training of puppies business, but we really do not want to get in to that until we are stable again. I have been working really hard on budgeting and planning and all of that but it never works out.
It’s an odd time to ask for money, I know, but this is for a very desperate need that I’m risking my identity to tell you how badly I need money to feed myself right now.
Ever since a virus attacked my computer that wiped out all of my savings from my bank account, I’ve been struggling like there’s no tomorrow. What hurts even the most is that ive been working so hard throughout most of my life of pursuing my dream of becoming a novelist. I have some experience in psychology and I’m creating 2 new genres ‘Psy-Fantasy’ and ‘Psy-Fi’ that will entertain you in psychological ways you would never thought would actually be true to a certain extent. To briefly explain its about the how the power of the mind and the body can unleash more capabilities than you can ever imagine. Anyway, if you would like to know more about it, don’t hesitate to email me!
However, I will need some emergency support if you are will to turn my story into a series of novel because I truly believe that this will not only entertain people, but it will bring a major impact to the entire world.
If you think this isn’t the right place to ask for help, please include so I’m my email too!
Thanks so much for reading this!!

I am usually one not to ask for help but I have a reached a point where lack of money is causing me severe distress and misery. I am a recent graduate of linguistics who recently moved to Berlin to work for a year then enroll in a Master’s program. A whole month went by (140 job applications later) and nothing but rejections upon rejections. Just recently I was able to procure a job but as an American I must first apply for a residence visa (which takes two week) before I can start working. To make matters worse, in Germany wages are paid monthly. So even when I start working in the end of May I will have to wait till the 1st of July to see my first check. I only have a few dollars to my name and I have no idea how I will survive. Not only that but I still need to pay this month’s rent. I can’t even afford to go back to the States. I have been depressed for several weeks now and I have seriously contemplated suicide. I have no one back home to help me and I am too overwhelmed. All I wanted was to move to a new place overseas (expand my horizons), obtain my Master’s degree and then move back to the States and obtain my PhD. I really wish money wasn’t an obstacle to my happiness. This is my final plea for help. I don’t know what else to do.
My name is Sheena. I am 28 years old. My past is not an easy one to hear, I was removed from my mothers care at the age of 8 as my mother has disabilities preventing her from being able to care for a child properly and ensure their health and safety. I lived in an abusive household until then at the hands of my grandfather and foster homes that I was in. Ever since I was 14, I have been taking care of myself working to pay for my housing and my schooling, I graduated college in 2011 from the Child and Youth Worker program. Shortly after graduating I found a job within my field, I worked there for over a year but was unable to stay there longer than that due to the nature of the work. I was working in an all girls group home ages 12-18. After leaving this job I was emotionally unable to continue working in the field. I then went back to work at my previous job as a baker where I was employed until I started my maternity leave.
I often find it hard to ask for help, however, in my current situation I feel I must. I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl almost 7 months ago. My partner and I couldn’t have been more happy nor could our 12 year old son. This changed 3 months later when my partner lost his restaurant.
Since then we have been struggling to make ends meet, the rent is being paid by my maternity benefits and child tax benefit however the rent takes up all of that income and leaves us with less than $500 a month for utility bills and food. Currently our gas has been disconnected and our hydro is set to be disconnected on May 16 2018. My partner has been unable to find work as he has applied to many jobs with no call backs. He also has a damaged nerve in his neck which prevents him from being able to do any physical jobs and really limits what can be done. He has been denied workers compensation and has been dealing with a lengthy battle to appeal the ruling.
Currently the amount of money owing on utility bills is $4,211.65. It is an incredibly large amount owing and i have no idea how I will be able to manage to pay it off. For me i have chosen to pay for food for my children first before being able to put any towards utilities which usually leaves less than $10 after I buy groceries.
We have applied for social assistance but were declined because of my maternity beneifits. We then applied to the homelessness prevention program but were once again declined because of my maternity benefits. We have tried every program that we are aware of an still have not been able to receive help for our current situation.
I would greatly appreciate any help I could receive to alleviate some of the hardship I am currently facing. I have borrowed as much as I can from my family and friends but they too are having difficulties.
If you are willing and able to help me and my family out we would be forever grateful.
Hi, my name is Angie, and I hope for a better day.
I humbly and respectfully ask for your help… The past 6 years of my life have taken a hard toll and have left me broken and despaired. It starts with my 1st bout of cancer 6 years ago. I had uterine and ovarian cancer. I had a hysterectomy and my cancer went into remission, however this did a great deal of damage to my psyche and destroyed me, leaving me unable to really function in the reality of life. Soon after, my husband, unable to cope with my severe depression and his own loss of his mother and brother left me and filed for a divorce. I scared and alone turned to a man I didn’t know who 6 months later put a gun to my head and held me and his 2 minor children hostage for 3 days threatening and attempting to kill us. He is currently being held in the Travis county detention center awaiting trial for aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon he is looking at 40 years. This adding PTSD to my already severe depression resulted in me having to ask my ex-husband to help me. Being the great man that he truly was he of course agreed and let me move back into the house that we had together in our marriage. He was working to help me get a disability attorney and a place to live for me and my little dogs. The only thing that he asked of me was to watch over the house for 2 weeks while he went away for vacation. He died suddenly 2 days after he came back from vacation of a massive aneurysm that burst in his brain. Never having a chance to follow through with the help that I know he truly would have provided for me. Scared and completely alone I lived in our home for more than 6 months by myself begging any friend or relative that could to help me when I was contacted by what I believe to be an old friend who advised he wanted to help. He had heard that I once again have cancer and said that he didn’t want me to go through it alone. I let him move in and very shortly things went very very bad. He it turned out was a very selfish, violent and vengeful person. He took everything from my house, furniture, electronics, ECT., took all the money from my bank account he could, then he stalked and terrorized me for 3 months. I was again alone and afraid. I asked a woman who I again believed was my friend and was also in need of help and a place to live to come and stay with me, so we could help each other. She it turned out was a Heroin Addict, who after 2 months began drugging me with sleeping meds in my food and taking my bank card on SHOPPING sprees and drawing out money to pay for her addiction. When I realized what was going on it was too late. I asked her to move out. She angry about this stole my car and began taking money out of my account in small increments transferred to a pre-paid debit card that she had purchased from a store and linked to my checking account. The bank was able to recover some money but not most it because it was reported to late me being sick, coping with the loss of my ex-husband the trauma I had just endured with my prior roommate, plus coming to the realization that I again have cancer I wasn’t paying enough attention and she took everything. I have paid my mortgage struggling as much as I could to the point that they are about to Foreclose on my home. I have no real family to speak of there is no one to help me and I have 5 dogs, horrible credit due to the late mortgage and divorce, I have been unable to work due to the PTSD and severe depression, I have not been able to see a doctor to treat the issues so I do not qualify for disability and I have nowhere to go. I have been trying to make money selling anything I can online, and it is keeping food in my belly but is not nearly enough to keep me afloat or to save my home. Please if you can…will you help me, please? I am simply trying to raise enough money to pay off my home and car to own them outright, and stop living in fear constantly.
Thank you and God Bless you.
Hello! I know what you’re thinking: “Another person needing to get their life together, what a shocker.” But if you read this post in its entirety I promise that you will see that I am not just another young person who is asking for handouts.
My name is Kaya Weyer and I’m almost 21 years old. I have a fiancé named Josh who is the most hard working and skilled man I’ve met, and together we have a cat named Lucifer who is not yet a year old. We have been our own little family for over a year now, and in that short time we have endured/are currently enduring some very adverse times.
In October of last year we were unfairly evicted from our apartment because our roommate neglected to pay rent for 2 months. We then had to live in/out of our truck with our kitten until Josh’s mom took us into her apartment. Now, as nice as that was of her, there are some debilitating issues that stand as obstacles in the way of us living a successful and happy life. One being that the apartment building is full of drugs, drug addicts, thieves, thugs, etc. It’s located in a bad neighborhood and people take our belongings and mess with our vehicle almost nightly. (Because of it the already shaky car we just bought is completely immobile because someone took the drive shaft bolts.) It is also a doll house sized one bedroom; we sleep on the floor in the small living room which is the same room her dog pees/poops in when she neglects to take it out- which is often. We have to buy the groceries, buy her cigarettes, and I just had to pay to keep our lights on even though she collects $850 a month for disability, and we JUST got jobs. She belittles me, ruins the spaces we spend hours cleaning, and is very mean to/mistreats my cat who means the world to me. We have no money of our own to put towards saving for an apartment or fixing our car, let alone to pay for both of our medications that we need or take our cat to the vet to get a check up.
The moral of the story is this: we don’t need an insane amount of money, just a good enough amount that we can put into a savings account along with whatever pay we get from our part time jobs. It would go towards an apartment of our own so we could have privacy, clean clothes and bedding, and no stress for the first time in over half a year. It would pay for Lucifer’s much needed vet visit (he hasn’t been in since he was a kitten) and for any medicine he may need. It would go towards fixing our car so we can reliably get to our jobs. And it would be the biggest blessing of our lives. We are two people who are trying their absolute hardest to live a healthy, normal life while being in our personal hell. Please, if any of you have anything to spare and would be so kind to do so, donate. We need all the help we can get, and saying it would be “much appreciated” would be an understatement. Thank you so much for reading and a million thank you’s in advance to those who donate. Bless all of you!
Love from all,
Kaya, Josh, and Lucifer
Request for assistance,
To whom it may concern:
My name is Lisa, and I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this. This last 4 or 5 years has been filled with many life lessons, as well as son life changing events. I am a mother of two handsome boys whom I love to no end. In 2011, I married my oldest sons father, thinking that after 16 years he had become a better person, and was ready for a family, only to find out he was an alcoholic that hid it very well after a physical confrontation between the three of us, I knew it was time for him to go, we had only been married for three months, this lead to many sleepless nights of psychological abuse as he wouldn’t let me sleep, which was hard as I worked full time. Before he left he drained the account, ran up bills amongst other things. Last year I had lost all hope when I tried to take my life. My oldest son was living here, dating a girl, who felt she could be rude all of the time which led to her physically assaulting me, and my son stood by her to tell me how horrible of a mother I was only because I asked for financial help as he too was working full time. I had to get loans, both personal and pay day in order to make ends meet, and am still 10 steps behind. I am working full time, and working hard to get my emotional and financial security back one step at time. I have recently been diagnosed with PTSD, severe anxiety which has lead to insomnia as well as depression. I am asking for help, please.
Thank you for your time
Times are extremely hard for me currently and I have found myself in a terrible position. I have thought of every possible remedy before resorting to asking anyone else for help. However I have come to the end and have no other option available at this time. The last few years have been the hardest years of my life and painful. I am going to lose my home, my car and then my job. The amount of money I need to get thru this but not out of it would be about $1500.00. This would cover my rent and loan payment for this month. If I had this I could catch up on the past due bills that are in jeopardy of being shut off. Since I am aware this is a large amount of money I have narrowed it down to $500.00. If I could get some kind of help with just the loan payment I can keep my car and still get to work. Once I lose my car I will inevitably lose my job. I do not mind cleaning for the some or all of the money. I am detailed and hard working. I also love yard work and I am skilled in both. You may or may not wonder nor care how I could get to this place in life. So I will give you a little knowledge. My dreams in life did not work out as planned and I have had to make adjustments to adapt to this life I am living. I have been in a long term love hate relationship with an alcoholic which I do love dearly. He is a wonderful man but if you know any alcoholics then you know my pain. He is rather young and gone thru so much in his life. Now he is being tested for cancer. This is a devastating blow. It has rocked our world. I keep praying he will be okay and that is what I am telling myself. There has been a number of unexpected and devastating deaths that have effected me deeply with in the last few years. It has taken a toll on me and I am clinically depressed taking medications. I am working but hardly hanging on to my job. My car broke down forcing me into a bad loan that now has me in constant fear of losing my vehicle which is literally all I have in this world. I need help of any kind or a recommendation is welcomed as well. I would like to get this loan payment made so I can focus on the things that matter right now. I am scared because I know once I lose my car it will all begin to disappear until I have nothing and I am on the streets. I have read not beg be strong. I have heard show strength and offer a repayment plan. I cannot keep my head and do so. I am begging for help before its to late. I deserve a chance and if given this I promise you will change my life forever.
I have had one bad thing happen right after another. Some people have luck some are born into wealth. I grew up working hard with 2 honest hard working parents. I picked the wrong guys and believed in them to the point of no return. I am not blaming anyone else I made the choices myself and I take the blame for not leaving or seeing the big picture until it was to late. I have a big heart and truly try to help others. I give people money when I have it and I dont judge them. I realize how thin a line there is between someone with a home and job to someone who lost it all and is now homeless. It takes one major setback or if your living paycheck to paycheck it only takes missing work for a sudden illness and there goes your life. I am asking for help before its all gone. Thank you for reading and god bless you and your family. I hope you will never have to experience the hardships in life.
Dear Gracious Donor,
I need help paying off my debts.
I am requesting to receive $5000 in order to pay off the huge debts I just found myself. I started a business with a friend. After a period of one year doing the business together, he decided to travel out of the states. Before he left, he told me he was no longer interested in the business. I continued with the business.
After two years, he came back because he couldn’t find greener pasture where he went. He plotted with some thugs and defrauded me of the money I had and even went into debts to meet up what they demanded.
Right now, the people I owe are after me so badly and wouldn’t listen to any excuse. The business has folded up, and I’m so depressed. Sometimes I have thoughts of suicide. I have a wife and three kids I love so much, but right now I can’t provide for them.
Please I need your help, whatever you give will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for considering my request. Any donation would help me and greatly appreciated.
It will only let me download one image.. my children, daughters, lost their father August 2015. They were 9 and 14. I lucked out and found a 3 bedroom house that was in my price range. I was blessed my daughters now had a happy home in spite of the devastation. Next thing you know, a friend was booted from her home. Had no place for her daughters to go. I took in 2 17 year old twin girls lexi and selina. Then their oldest sister and her husband moves in to a terribly damaged one room trailor. They had a 2 year old boy and a newborn girl. I knew their hole if a home was falling in and unlivable. I gave up my bedroom. Had my youngest in her bedroom, the 2 twins and my oldest in another room, and a family of four in my room. I didn’t mind taking the couch knowing they were all safe. I have slept on the couch since. The father of the family of four was told his 17 year old brother was coming from Florida, no money, no place to go so I got another kid. I loved them all but no one helped with bills. I took care of their two dogs as I rescue a lot of dogs. I get them on the right track, then I find them good homes. It took it’s toll being the only one paying bills with 7 extra people’s mouths to feed, and 2 extra dogs. I took out payday loans, sold two of my motorcycles I had worked hard for, and lost nearly everything trying to make ends meet. They all moved out recently but I’m left with a lot of debt and still have 2 rescue dogs one of my own and 2 kids to provide for. Luckily my oldest is looking for a place. I owe nearly 4 thousand in payday loans I have pictures and names of the children and family of four.. I just can’t get this to let me post more than one picture. Jake pahls, selina crawford and Lexi (the twins) the family of four, Ana Hernandez, kyle shoemaker and their young children kyler shoemaker and prezleigh shoemaker. I have learned much from this experience but at ehat cost.. my children suffered so we could help others.. I’ve been working two and three jobs still unable to pull ahead . I work for the postal service also gold star chili and a lot of odd extra jobs anything I can get. I owe on my daughters trumpet and my oldest is graduating and we’ve bern scrounging her cap and gown costs. I feel terrible and blessed at the same time my daughter has worked so hard since she was 15. Blessed because she knows good work ethic, but sad because a parent should be able to provide all needs if they work as much as I do. I can provide proof and written statements about everything if need be. This is quite a leap of faith in blindness.. but, I had to take it for my family. I don’t like the way it feels receiving things I didn’t earn. If there is a way I can earn it please I will gladly do so. I truly appreciate your time and whoever gets a blessing, bless you for helping them. Everyone is struggling and needs help right now, as long as someone is willing, faith in humanity is not lost. I know once my petty 4 to 5 grand debts are paid, my children will no longer struggle to get clothing or supplies when needed. It’s just I have to do the right thing and pay my debts. Until now I’ve never owed anyone, I’m still on the couch, but im blessed in so many ways it’s not right for me to complain my daughters are healthy.. the family i helped are on their feet and that is worth struggling. paypal.me/amymobennett
I recently have gone through my savings I don’t have a job anymore due to the lack of transportation. I’ve used my savings to fix on my car which ultimately leads me nowhere soon after my transmission gave out and I don’t have car insurance because the cost of car insurance where I live is 800-1600 a month and I wasn’t making that much at my job and soon after I lost it because I would have to get up 4 hours before it was time to go to catch a bus and because of my long hours I would have to walk home at 12 or 1 at night. The neighborhoods where I had to walk pass are not female friendly, Then I got hit with another unfortunate circumstance the only good thing in my life I had to give up which was my cat because I can no longer afford what she needs and I’m deeply saddened I gave her to someone who will keep her until I’m back on my feet. I haven’t been able to buy food or female necessities because I’m saving money trying to uber and lyft to job interviews. Any amount would help me I thank you in advance and send you well wishes. paypal.me/Blessedhearts
4 months ago i quit my job because the mother of my children became ill. We have 2 children…Mikayla 8 and Ayden 10; and it was impossible for her to do her motherly duties.
Keep in mind the doctors put her on anti depressants and some kind of nerve inhibitor. About a month ago she stopped eating, did not sleep for 3 or 4 days in a row did not eat and was not even drinking…so naturally she became: sleep deprived, malnourished, dehydrated as well as psychotic!! Her inability to take care of herself led to her mismanaging her medication. She attempted suicide and claimed to have taken a handful of her medicine??!!!
Looking back now i should have taken to the ER right then. I waited, in the hopes that she would get better. She not only didn’t get better she became worse!!! I’m really scared that maybe she has brain damage?!! She’s hallucinating and saying all kinds of crazy stuff so I took her and the kids to her mother’s to discuss what we should do.
My mother-in-law reacts very negatively; denying that her daughter has serious medical and health problems. All that I wanted was to get help and this woman used this adverse circumstance to throw me out of our home. I should say the title to our residence is in their name not mine. Yelling and being very hostile and violent she threatened me and then offered me $100 to leave. Offended, I refused and things escalated from there. Bottom line everything is their name: our cars, the house everything. They said if i take my car; they’ll report it stolen.
This all happened over 2 weeks ago. I’ve been homeless ever since. I interviewed with capital one for a customer service position last Tuesday. Wish me Luck!! It’s been hard because I’m not from here and i do not know anyone. My parents have passed away and I just never thought something like this could happen!! I am embarassed but if i don’t try things will never get better! PLEASE help with any donation that you can find it in your heart TO give; so that I can get off the streets and give my kids a chance to get away from my in laws or at least help give them! Please help their dad come back as someone they can be proud of. Anything helps. Thanks for taking the time to read. If you can’t help please pray!!
May i please ask you to read my request for the benefit of my family’s well being.
Could someone help me with the repairs to my house because i’m a pensioner and have no other income except state pension.
I have tried my best to save and pay for repairs but now it has got on top of me due to the stressful conditions at home and various extra bills i have to pay out. i live with my ex husband who i care for due to his ongoing chemo treatment for his Oesophageal cancer (gullet). because of the problems and lack of funds the house has gone into disrepair leaving me with extreme worry thinking what am i going to do because this is not the ideal conditions for someone who is ill to live in and as we have no help from anyone i had to search online to find a miracle giver who understands my situation.
Furthermore the neighbours are so very noisy which is in no way ideal for someone trying to relax and recover from an illness. When it’s possible to, i ask the neighbours to stop their unreasonable behavior but this always falls on deaf ears. (one side: Dogs barking on and off during the day, other side new neighbours loud door banging, loud talking early hours and stomping on the stairs). it got so bad i had to confront them recently to say i have an ill person here with cancer and would they be more considerate (they seemed to take it in but apparently not!) now they added to the above with random banging on the wall late at night! we live in a terraced house and because this is a civil matter no authorities will get involved.
Because of this i have been very poorly the last week and find myself shaking most of the time with stress which has lead me to get prescribed anxiety medication which is only a temporary fix and doesn’t hide the fact of the condition we are in and a lot of the time i wish i had someone to discuss my problems with.
I just want to get the house into a reasonable condition and move somewhere quiet if possible. there had been a few times over the years where i struggled with things and managed but on this occasion there is just no way out!
If someone could help financially in any way so we can move on peacefully with our lives i would be very grateful kind regards Madeleine. my pay link is this: paypal.me/maddie51

Hello, I am in the midst of what has been a hellish past two months. I work 60-70 hours a week as a chef, but do not make great money. I also do not have health insurance. I had to take a trip to the hospital in September, that left me with over $4,000 in bills. I have been making my payments and scraping by, but this month everything came crashing down and caught up with me.
I have not been able to pay my utility bills, my loan payment, or my phone bill. I spent literally the last $25 I had putting money on my transit card to get to/from work, and then bought cat food and litter. That was about three days ago, I have been in one long anxiety/panic attack since then pretty much. I have been stuck in my apartment, haven’t eaten hardly anything, and have maybe slept a combined 3 hours the past two night.
I finally get a paycheck on friday, but with the bills i still owe+rent, over 85% of that will most likely be gone instantly. But the good news is, I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel after this next check.. the next few weeks are going to be extremely difficult again, but i should finally start to be able to hang onto some money with the check after that. I have been trying like a mad-man to sell anything and everything i can online and on classifieds. I know it’s rough for everyone and we all work hard for our money.. so if you can spare a buck or two here or there.. amazing, if not, thank you just for reading.
you can send any help to either; cash.me/$jonahhhhh
Sorry, I don’t have a pic to share, although I’m sure that would be more compelling. :(
Hardworking mom of 2.
I have a full-time job, however the volume of work is seasonal. The winter months just killed me this year financially, and I’ve fallen very behind on my car payments. I still owe about $1500 after the slow season at work. They’ve worked with me as much as possible, but I have to pay the lienholder at least $500 to stave it off a little longer. I’d rather pay it all of course, but beggars can’t be choosers, right? I’ll be grateful for any help you can give.
My car is 90% of my livelihood – I need it to get to and from work, to run even the most basic errands (living in a rural area – town is a good 15 minute drive away). There is no public transit here. I sometimes drive for Uber and Lyft as a side-hustle to my regular job, so having a car is a MUST.
Anything will help, and I will be glad to send you an update if you choose to donate. Even just a few dollars could be the difference between keeping and losing my only means of transportation. Thank you for your time and your help, friends. May you be blessed in return.

In 2015 Dec,I decided to leave my marriage.He was emotional/verbally abusive towards my daughter myself.The hardest thing I ever had to do.I wanted the help Marriage councillor.I would go him not.Said it’s me who needs help not him.I had enough after 11 years.
I found a home to rent.Was in the house 9 months.2016!Came home from work.Went down to the basement.It was not finished or no stair rails.I did not see water on the floor.I slipped and I broke my tibia/ fibula.Was in a cast for three months.
The landlord came to the house with a realtor one month later.Said he wanted to look around to appraise the house.I did say no I was in a wheelchair and I was cleaning the house with my young daughter.He said it’s ok.He will be quick.I said fine.The realtor came in only.Not the landlord.Realtor stormed out.Staying the house in a huge mess.Cat shit all over.Which was a lie.The cat knocked the litter box over.We were busy cleaning it.Landlord came banging on the door.Said I need to get rid be of my cats.I refused.Within a week moved back to the marital property.Thank the Lord for my friends helping myself daughter in the middle of winter.Me still in a cast.
The marital property was empty as he was living with his girlfriend in another town. The bank was in the process of taking back the house.I had three months I could live in the home before I had to get out.
2016 I got a call from my sister back home.My father was busy dying.Dad died in Dec I could not go home.It was to expensive.Mum and sister had NO money to cremate my father.I sent my earnings for the month.Sent it home for my late dad.
January rolls around 2017 the landlord from the rental property has sued me.Over $10000.Said I damaged his property left garbage laying around his house Which was all lies.I might have been in a wheelchair cleaning.I, my friend helped me clean me house.They took empty garbage bags of litter and garbage threw it all over the house.He called the cops so they can right a report.
It was all lies and misleading,bulling and threatened myself my child. Because I had NO money for a lawyer to Fight for me.My daughter.The tenancies branch believed him.
Honest to God it’s all lies.So sad how blind the system is.My wages garnished for 30%.
2017 my mum passed just four months after dad.Once again..Sister had no money.All my money I had.My earnings I sent home for her to be cremated.
I got depressed.Struggling with there loss.Bs with landlord.Losing our home.I left my job Moved out of town
Its still a huge struggle to make ends meet its 2018.The landlord is still harrassing me.I still own him 8000.
He wants if.Even if I don’t have it.I got nothing.I lost my house.In the process of losing my car.
I don’t know what to do.I cannot get a loan.I have very poor credit score.Nobody wants to help me.
I am not looking for a handout.Just looking for some help.I want to give it all back.How ever long it takes.
I am a volunteer in Ecuador but now stranded in the country. I came to the country with other volunteers to participate in a bilingual government project titled “Time to Teach “. Before we arrived, there was a contract signed by all volunteers with the recruiting foundation called Edificar (Fundacion Edificar). In the contract, it was stated that the government would provide us with the return tickets which was provided at the beginning of the program. The program ought to finish in March 2018, but due to some political and misappropriation of funds reasons, it was terminated in January 2018. In February 2018, when I wanted to confirm my return ticket online, I discovered it had been cancelled. My return flight was scheduled for 17th March, 2018. I called the airline to verify what the problem was, I was told it was cancelled by the foundation and they have collected the refund. I approached the foundation twice and I was informed, it was not their fault but the airline that made the cancellation. They were busy given me excuses and later told me they do not have money to purchase flight ticket for me.
At this juncture, I need the help of every individual to save me from this mess. I no longer have money to pay house rent, my visa is about to expire, and I do not have any health insurance anymore. I am ready to present documents to validate my request. I want to leave this country as soon as possible. I need the sum of one thousand, six hundred dollars (USD 1,600) to catch up with the next available flight.
I shall be looking forward to your help.
I do not know why life choose you to be a victim at times. What has happen is, my parents have abused me as a child and through out my life have applied certain rules that always seems to give them an edge of control upon my person. My dad is an extremely violent man with a sadistic character; he use to be more violent to my mum and was making me seat and watch, I was a tiny small boy the first time it happen and I was absolutely scared, while beating my mum with his fist and belt and other wooden stick to make his point felt and insure his dominance other any situations who is associate to his person. He use to cheat on my mum, she always found proof of his infidelity, she was then confronted with Two choices, investigate further (by following him) or showing him the evidence of his infidelity, he then uses disproportionate force to put his point across and he use to last for days. I have seen my mum been boxe around and punch so much so that she use to loose consciousness and when that use to happen, my father use to take her by one of her leg to bring her into the bedroom to beat her some more as she was still unconscious, and that was the most painful as my mum was so exhausted by the amount of violence all over her body and as unconscious she could not fight against the rest of the punches and belt she was getting and she at that time, always use to then cry, but not a normal kind of crying, it was deep, like I was hearing her cry just like she was a child, it was a child sound of crying, I was numb and very scared for my life, cause he always use to say, ” I am fed up with all of this, if it continues I will shoot everyone in here (my mum and me) and then point the gun on my head and finish with all of this. I was absolutely terrify, and now I want out, I want to be able to come out of this ‘hell’ that I am into, the only way I could be able to do so is, that someone or people understand my pain and indescribable frustration to not be able to get help anywhere else, this is my only chance to rent a property on my own and have some sort of a life. There is more to the story, violence on my mum was also carry on me, after a while she was tired of getting hurt and she then turn on me so that my father was inflicting me the violence that she was getting, he is a real psychopath, he would beat me with his fist or wooden stick or belt and then always asking me to put my self on my knees for half an hour sometimes more, even in pain I had no choice, even crying he would beat me asking me to stop crying, it really goes on and on and on. I have enough and I am afraid, I know where to run to and I have made plan to have a flat when I get some money and I also need food, clothes for a while till I can found a job by training or a course at Uni… I have never thought that I would do this one day but this is my only option at the moment, I certainly do not want to go and beg in the street as this would alert my father or someone could see me and alert him… I do not know what else to say except, Thank you for reading a part of my soul and Thank you for taking the time to care. The sum I ask is a number that I had to use, I just need what is possible, nothing more.
