Hi, my name is Anniqua Spencer I’m 20 years old and I wrote this story just to give myself some strength to inform you that my father passed away. This is what my Grandparents told me on how they found him. His parents went to check up on him because they hadn’t heard from him in a while when they got their they tried to get in, but the door was locked so they tried to use a spare key they had that didn’t work. Next, they went to the front office to ask if they could unlock the door for them and they said “No we can’t do that” his parents then went outside and were thinking of a way to get in. They came up with one my dad’s apartments was on the bottom floor, so they were able to climb over and get to his patio door which they were able to open when found him they told me how his skin was very cold to the touch. Once they found him and realized he wasn’t here with us anymore they called the ambulance. The Forensic Pathologist told his parents that my dad had been dead for about three days. They gave me a call and told me my dad passed away when I heard that my world was turned upside down. I really need your help, whatever your willingly to donate It would be greatly appreciated. It still hurts to accept the fact that he is gone so soon but I know god has him and is taking care of him. My Father’s name was Robert Erik Spencer he passed away at the age of 42 from alcohol poisoning. Thank you so much for the help, even a little amount is a big help for my father`s funeral. The picture is of My dad and me when I was a little girl.
Hello, my name is Onajite Ekpere, I’ve gone by Jite all my life. I’m 29 and the youngest of five children. I would like to tell you a story. On July 14, 2018, my world was turned upside down, and it became the worst day of my life. It is the day that my family lost my father to Alzheimer’s. He was only 71 when he passed, and was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in his early 60s. My Dad was a Medical Physicist (dealt with cancer patients and worked with the Radiation Oncologist), before he was diagnosed and could no longer work in his field. He helped people for a living. He was passionate about doing everything that he could to fight cancer, doing his part. He was passionate about his wife and kids. Even though he was always at the hospital, he made time for us. Family was always important to him. He was passionate about being a good example to my two brothers and showing them what it means to truly be a Godly man and good husband. He was passionate about singing and worship. He could never carry a tune, but that never stopped him from praising and worshiping God to his best ability. He was passionate about life.
Then one day, his life slowly began to be taken from him, by Alzheimer’s. There are many stages of Alzheimer’s. It was a slow and gradual process of deterioration over the years. By the end, my father was a shell of himself. Watching someone you love deteriorate over a period of time, and know that there was nothing you could do about it, was probably one of the most painful things I experienced. When he passed, apart of me was glad. He was no longer in pain, no longer suffering. The rest of me though is heartbroken. I feel that I’ve lost a part of myself.
But, this fundraising isn’t about me. This is about my mother, and my heart for her. My parents were married 40 something years, and now my mother’s other half is gone. My mom’s a teacher and the school year has started, so it’s helped to keep her distracted, but my heart breaks for her. She went from having a Physicist and Teacher Salary, to just a Teacher’s. She’s been living with just her salary since my Dad was first diagnosed years ago, and she’s made it work, but we all know a Teacher’s salary is not much to live on. Then, a month ago, my father died, causing her to have to use a lot of her savings for all of the memorial/funeral home preparations etc.
I don’t know how to help my mother right now, except offer my support and love. What can you really say to someone who has experienced such loss/grief? What I do know though is that, if I can help relieve any financial stress, even if it’s just a little off of her, then it’s something. She’s grieving, the last thing she needs is financial stress. So, I come to why I’m asking for money. This fundraiser is for her, to help relieve some of her financial burden. I won’t profit from any of these funds. I don’t need to. I have an amazing job. I just want to do this as a gift to her. My parents always did everything that they could for all of us. I want to give back to her.
So please, if you’ve ever experienced loss of a loved one, or find my cause worthy, send a donation to: http://paypal.me/OnajiteEkpere
Thank you all so much.
I’ve always been the person donating to these things and paying it forward helping others but this time I need a little help !!
About 6 months ago my grandmother was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer . We moved her in and I quit my job and stayed with and took care of her 24/7 . Over the last 6 months we were able to barely scrape by and make ends meet even though we live 30 minutes from the nearest town and the motor blew in my car and we were left begging and borrowing a ride to dr visits and the grocery store . The last week of June she started going into heart failure and even though she was having a lot of medical issues and in so much pain she tried hard to stay positive and smile ! Around 5 am July 1st she past away , and unfortunately for me her insurance policy had expired so she had no burial insurance the church and family members have pitched in but I still owe the funeral home $7000 after giving them the money from church and family and the $800 I had been saving for a car ! The last few weeks have been really hard I wasn’t prepared to loose the woman who raised me and to Make life even better my oldest daughter starts her senior year of high school in less than 2 weeks and Today she was rushed to the e.r. For what turns out to be a torn acl in her knee which requires surgery….. I really have no idea what I’m going to do or where to turn ! I cannot afford school clothes and supplies for my 2 teenagers , I’m struggling to pay for a funeral,I have no vehicle to get my daughter back and forth to surgery and dr visits for her knee or to even go back to work so I can make it .. at this point anything will help! even the smallest donation will be greatly appreciated !
I’m asking for $3,750 for a grave site for the love of my life (Allen J. Bates 12.08.1979-12.05.2017) and to reimburse the money from the funeral (that was used for the funeral) to his children.
December 5th was the worst day of my life; the second worst day of my life was February 2nd, the day the oldest two children of the love of my life told me they didn’t want my help, they never did, and I was “stealing their Dad’s house (despite having been on the lease and all utility bills prior to his passing)…they told the younger two not to talk to me, thus rendering me completely broken. 5 & 1/2 years of dedication and love just gone. I’ve debated posting about this for fear of sounding like I’m throwing a pity party; I’m not. Death does crazy things to people, and children are never to blame. Despite informing them that the landlord had already told me he wouldn’t be willing to rent to kids, they didn’t want me there; I had no choice but to leave. I live on my own now, and the kids are all split up. It’s awful. 5 & 1/2 years of revolving my life’s purpose around for these beautiful, innocent children, and now they think I’m an enemy. My heart is broken.
Allen worked 16+ hours a day, 9 months out of the year, hibernating the remaining 3 months of the year during his off season. I was honored to fulfill so many needs for OUR family, as Allen called it. Everything from filling in and filing paperwork for health care, food stamps, taxes, making & taking them to doctor, dental, orthodontia, and optometrist appointments, urgent care, school registration, behind the wheel registration, taking them to and from school, jobs, orchestra, wrestling, dances, friend’s houses, organizing and planning birthday & graduation parties, baby showers. Everything gave me such a sense of purpose.
All I ever wanted to do was help. I gave without any expectation of getting anything in return, aside from love and maybe respect. Now all I want is for them to be ok. All I want is for them to know I love them, and I’m still here for them even though they wanted me gone. But. I’ll always love them, and I still want to help them.
I used the $1600 from the funeral and the $4000 from the go fund me my boss set up for the funeral. I want to raise $1600 to give back to the kids plus the $2150 for a grave sight for his urn. I can barely afford to live much less save. Please help.
My Uncle Loveil was found dead and he was dead for 2-3days before they found him. We are devastated. His family and our community needs help to provide him the funeral he deserves. The Funeral home wants $2000 up front we have no insurance Me and my family are short we still need $1,600 Please donate what you can. Every bit helps. Thank you in advance. PayPal.me/Sahira26

Please!! And thank you
my father passed away recently and he was my best friend now his ashes sit at a funeral home waiting to be claimed by me and I have no money to claim him with. I need help genuine help to retrieve my father’s ashes, to bring him home where he belongs. My father was an awesome man he was a 9 year Vietnam veteran he served his country well, very well. My father deserves to have his resting place at home with me. At times I often think what if it were me in that urn, I’m sure my father would want me home with him instead of some Funeral Home Shelf. I really do need this help and if anybody anybody is willing to give me this hand up not hand out to help get my father home it would be much more appreciated then you would ever know. I just don’t have the kind of funding that it takes to get my dad’s ashes now and bring him home. I am disabled myself and have very limited funding. I too Am terminal. I have wolff-parkinson-white syndrome a condition where the heart has too many electrical pathways and I go into cardiac arrest out of nowhere. I have had 13 heart attacks and died from two of them, lucky to be alive I’d say. I just really really really want to bring my father home to be with me before I pass if anybody out there could find it in their heart to help me, it will make my day and the rest of my time on Earth. Thank you ever so much God bless whoever I’m talking to.
I’ve been drowning in debt for years, but I’m not writing this for me. My name is Mandy Broadbent and recently a good friend of mine was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I immediately registered for a nonprofit group to help him get what he needed to get through this. We were successful, however getting funding is another story. My friend endured 9 months of cancer treatments and spinal surgery that left him in a wheelchair. The nonprofit group we have put together is called Calgary Cares Society our mission is to help those effected by cancer with finances to help with the burdens that come with this aggressive disease. The group was trying to raise money for a vehicle to get Tyrel to and from his appointments, because the day after his spinal surgery his wife Rachael was in a car accident, and their insurance was not enough for a new vehicle. Unfortunately on April 20th 2018 his 2nd wedding anniversary Tyrel Stevenson passed away in his young wife’s arms. I’m writing this for Rachael Stevenson. She needs our help with the cost of saying good bye, and although she went the cheapest route she possibly could, the costs still exceeded $8000. Racheal has not been working because she needed to take care of her husband, Tyrel needed help in and out of the wheelchair, as well as the embarrassing part of needing your wife to change your diaper on a daily basis. She was his primary care giver for almost a year, she never left his side. Rachael deserves a helping hand, she is selfless and caring, and already has had to deal with the worst time of their short lives together. Our group had raised over $2000 together before he passed away, which helped them pay for a few bills that were over due. Sadly our nonprofit group is not kicking off as I would have hoped. I’ve been looking into more ways to advertise the group and gain members, with very little success. I plan on putting on an auction to help raise money for Rachael, but that too costs money to put on. I’ve roughly put together some event costs and I would need $5000 to have a successful event take place here in Calgary, Alberta. On one hand $5000 could help the nonprofit group and potentially Rachael, or on the other hand $8000 could help Rachael move towards a brighter future. If we are aloud to put a foot in there as well, we also need to replace a vehicle for Rachael so she can return to work and lead a somewhat normal life while coping with the loss of her husband. As a registered nonprofit organization I could potentially add you and/or your company to our list of donors, depending on the sponsorship type or agreement, we can advertise our partners and sponsors on all platforms of marketing. Calgary Cares Society has a website if you are interested in what we are about www.calgarycaressociety.com We have made a section for Tyrel Stevenson which has a link to chuffed.org while there you can make a donation and receive a receipt for income tax purposes if you wish. I eagerly wait for your support. Thank you! paypal.me/MandyBroadbent
Hello my name is Tantinisha Martin recently my sister, brother and myself lost our mother to a sudden massive stroke. Unaware that my mom didn’t have life insurance we are unable to bury her until we come up with the $5,560 to bury her. So far we have come up with $1700 but it’s hard we have hardly any family or anybody to turn to for help and the state of Louisiana doesn’t offer any assistance and it’s been almost 3 weeks since her death and my heart is breaking because we can’t give her the going away service she deserves it pains me and breaks my heart that she has to sit in that Morgue lonely we’ve set up various fundraisers go fund me pages but it’s hard when you have no close family to rely on so me and my sister are doing what we can I honestly don’t want my mother to have to sit in that Morgue 2 or 3 months she deserves so much more than that her beautiful soul deserves so much more than that I work as a cna at a nursing home I’ve been doing that for 11 years me and my sister have been taking care of my mom since she had moved back in town only 4 months prior to her death. My mom worked hard her whole life and worked hard to provide for us and I just feel like she died unhappy in pain without the happiness she deserves.. My mom was a good lady a Christian woman she also was and organ donor her liver saved a mans life already that brought a little light in our lives. This whole situation has been painful and stressful and we haven’t been able to properly mourn because all the stress of how and when are we going to bury her it’s a horrible feeling it hurts my feelings because I feel like I’m failing her and it breaks my heart. That is why on behalf of my siblings we desperately need some assistance a little help any donations will be greatly appreciated if you’re interested in helping but might not be comfortable I understand you can send donations directly to the funeral home Heavenly Gates Funeral Home 1339 Jewell st. Shreveport Louisiana 71101 phone#318-222-8010 we have and account set up in her name Floyd Vanessa Jones
Hello my name is Anthony i am 37yrs old and divorced and have 3 daughter in witch the oldest who is 18 just had a child of her own so now I’m grandpa and 2 boys i have raised since they where born so they to are my boys. I’m not really sure how to do this or who this well reach so I’ll just leave that in God’s hands. Instead of telling you my whole life i well just start with the most recent of events n where i feel my life began again and ended in the blink of an eye. I was engaged to the most beautiful woman i have ever met in my life and to my surprise she chose me over so many other opportunities to be with a person who had the means to give a queen all she deserved. We have been together for 5yrs and on 8/19/2017 between 9pm and 10pm my fiance and it had a conversation i wish would have never taken place for in that Moment she believed i had fallen out if live with her and pulled out a small caliber pistol and was making it seem that if i where to leave her she would have no reason to be in this world anymore but if you got that chance to know us you would have known there would never be a chance of that ever happening. Needless to say at that moment i reacted by raising my voice and telling her “what are you doing ” as i went towards her before i knew it the gun had went off. As she reacted to the sound of the shot or even mabey my voice she had ducked forward rite in the path of the bullet. Since she had told me many times before that she might do something like that if i left she never really would do it. And even now i still don’t think it was intentional people tell me it’s not healthy or doing any good to blame myself but i keep thinking what if i had just stayed quiet or just assured her i wasn’t leaving or even waited to even have that talk. I have never found a more loving and giving and caring women in all the world she was a good send. I have tried to work in the past but she would always make me stay home eventually because she would hate that i would not be here when she got home from work. She made enough money to take care of us and our family that she made me the house husband. She was the best thing that has ever happened to me since the birth of my kids. With that being said when she passed we had not saved anything for bills or my child support payments or any of our bills do to that fact that she made money daily so we where always on time with our bills. And if that wasn’t enough our landlord has let our house go into foreclosure and still wants rent for me to stay till the beginning of October and to make matters worse me being a good person asked the hospital to contact her ex husband so that her kids could come to the hospital and say goodbye to her well since we weren’t officially married they had left all decisions you to her younger sister and older brother. And with out even giving her a chance they made the call to pull the plug on her and it was then that they left all other decisions up to her ex. Who has already said i would not be aloud at any service they have for her or giving any if her ashes because her family doesn’t have money and her ex has a business he took from my fiance in there divorce. So because he said he would pay for it all they have kinda just left me th off man out. But its only because they want to make sure he pays for everything. As of yet i have heard he is not having a service but planting a tree for her in his backyard and only having so many people over. Well i don’t think that’s rite and i believe my fiance disserves more then that she disserves a place where everyone who knew her can visit her and say goodbye witch brings me to why i am asking for help i am past due on my child support and being fresh out if court we are on a 12mo probation if I’m late or miss a payment they well send out a warrant for my arrest. My payments are $375 a month with all that has been happening losing our place i was planning on following my girl to where ever it was she was going to go. After talking to my sister i made her a promise i would go to Cali see my new grandson check in to the hospital she wants me to go to and continue to live my life better then we where we had so many plans and it all seemed so pointless i have asked my finance to talk to me and tell me want to do. And so i guess if i can’t be with her in death i would honor her in life and become a better person then i had ever been. And hopefully help someone along the way suffering from depression i well always listen now no matter what cuz you just never know when someone is crying out for help. Honestly i don’t mind going to jail for my child support i should have never out that responsibility on her like that. But i would be so great ful if someone anyone would be so kind as to help me give my queen a proper service. All in all i would need close to $10,000 to get my life back together and for her service at the very least. But even if i could get close to $3 or $4,000 at least she would get the service she so deserves. I could go on for days telling you how wonderful she was. I’ll never find anyone who could ever take her place. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and thank you in advance for any help i might receive from you.

Hello I am writing this today because the only family I had passed away on May 20, of this year. She was all I really had over the last 26 years and we were extremely close all of my life. She was the only one who stood up for me, and loved me. She was 84 years old.
I grew up in southern California, and my parents split up when I was around 12 years old. I ended living with my father, who was very abusive, and the only safe place I had to go was my Grandmas house. So I tried to spend as much time there as I could, even sneaking out, and riding my bicycle there to hide out because she would not let my father hurt me. When I was 15 my father literally in the middle of the night, without telling anyone, moved me and his new family to the Northwest. I was told that if i tried to contact any of my family he would kill me and I believed him. He wouldn’t even put me back in school because he was afraid that we could be traced through the transfer of my school records, so instead he made me go to work. I got a job pumping gas at a gas station and worked 40+ hours a week. When I was 16, he had my stepmother kick me out of the house, and she dropped me off on MLK Blvd and she never looked back. I lived on the streets of Portland for a year, until a very kind woman with kids my age, rented me a room for $50 a week. She encouraged me to go back to school, ( which I did!) And subsequently earned my G.E.D. I finally reached out to my Grandma when I was 19, it took 3 years for me to build up the courage in fear of what my father had told me, but once I did I never lost contact with her again. I ended up getting into a union apprenticeship, getting married, and did very well for my family for a while.
2009 I was involved in a tragic accident on a construction site that took out L4,L5, and S1. It required me to have 2 major back surgeries, and has since left me disabled. My wife left me once I could no longer make good money because I only make about 1/4 Of what I used too. I have adjusted to it and raised my son, but I did not realize, nor was I ready to endure the cost of a death, and her and I were all we had. I was able to pay for the funeral and mortuary service but I am about to loose everything because I paid that instead of the bills I have. And I still have to come up with the money to ship her to Arkansas to be buried next to my Grandfather, I have never asked anyone for anything before, but please help I need around $11,000 to pay for everything. My PayPal is paypal.me/jasonpecksr anything will help please, I don’t know what else to do,
Hello, I am writing this today because my Grandmother passed away on May 20, of this year. She was 84. Her and I were very close, growing up my mother and father divorced when I was 11 and my father was very abusive, she was the only one who stood up to him and protected me, that established our bond, and over the years we became very close even though I lived in the Northwest and she lived in southern California. My father moved me up to the Northwest when I was 15 and forbid me from contacting anyone in my family because he did not want to be found (mainly to avoid paying child support from my mother I presume since my other 3 siblings went off with her), He wouldn’t even allow me to return to high school because he didn’t want my school records to be traced, but he did make me go to work to help support his new family. So I got a job at a gas station pumping gas at a gas station in Portland, Oregon Working 50 hours a week. He ended up kicking me out of the house a year later, but I was so afraid of his threats, it took me three years to contact my Grandmother. Things ended up working out for me, a wonderful woman took me in, allowed me to rent a room from her, pushed me to go back to school, and I was able to join a union, where I made very good money. I subsequently had a family, bought a home, and provided(by working very hard) a good life for my family. Then tragedy struck, I caught a valve that was slipping out of the rigging while we were 160 feet in the air that weighed around 3 to 4 hundred pounds. I took a step with all that weight in my arms and unfortunately, destroyed L4, L5, and S1 in my lower back, which required me to have 2 back surgeries, and disabled me from my career. Well when I got hurt, because I couldn’t make the kind of money my ex wife was used too, she left me liteally laying in a hospital bed. Hence why I am disabled today and do not have much. And I lost literally everything.
My Grandmother was there through it all, she was tough on me when she had to be, and consoling as well. Her and I shared a very deep bond, intact she used to tell everyone that she would just look at my picture and say “Jason call me!” And within 15 minutes I would. Well that little trick of hers helped get her emergency services once, back in 2006, she had fallen in her kitchen, she was having a major stroke. I, at the time, was working a construction job in Washington state. When I was overcame with an urge to call my Grandmother even though cell phones were outlawed on the job. So in front of everyone, I opened my cell and called her. It took me a couple of minutes for me to realize that she was in grave danger because her speech was garbled, but once I did, i contacted the emergency services in L.A. county and was able to get her to the hospital. Unfortunately the stroke took it’s took on her and physically she couldn’t do somethings that she could before, but she was as sharp and feisty as ever!! I made it a point to come down at least twice a year to see her and bring my family down for thanksgiving. We were all we had. She is the reason I am the man I am today, she raised me to have integrity, character, to strive to be the best at whatever you do, and most of all to love God and your family. She was not much over 4′ 11″ but she commanded a presence that made you listen and take notice, I love her so much and she will be missed by many!
I have never asked for money from anyone before today, but I cannot do this now without help, I have already spent almost $5000 dollars, that only covered her coffin and funeral in L.A. and left a balance with the mortuary of around $3600. Then on top of it she is supposed to be buried in Arkansas. The house is in reverse mortgage, to the amount of $480k, and almost $100k in credit card debt, so there is nothing left in the estate. Please help me through this, I am only looking to try and recoup what I have spent and her burial in Arkansas, which amounts to around $15k . Thank you so much if you took the time to read this!!!
I am writing on behalf of my step children who unexpectedly lost their mother this week. Her son, Jalyn, is 19 and will be starting his first year of college in a month. Her daughter, Allie, is 16 and will be starting her senior year in high school. Their father and I are prepared to provide day to day support in school, sports, etc. However, we were not prepared for their mother’s unexpected passing and having to cover the costs of some funeral expenses, getting Jalyn set up at college and get Allie a workable vehicle.
We were already struggling financially due to my husband and I both losing the ability for overtime pay and numerous medical bills for myself. We have gotten behind in bills and things have been sent to collections. We were already in the process of trying to get things back in order and our lives back on track so that we could help in the financial duties for his two children as well as my two children. Then his ex-wife passed away and now instead of helping with the financial duties for his two children it will all be up to us. We are trying desperately to come up with some solutions. Due to our poor credit we are unable to apply for any loans. Neither one of us has wealthy family members that can assist.
I am not trying to turn this request into a poor pitiful me story about my husband and I. This is about his two children and that they have lost their mother unexpectedly and way too soon. I feel helpless. I am not their mother, I will never be able to replace their mother. I just want to be able to help them any way I can. WE want to provide for them as well as we can. We just need some assistance in getting over this initial hump and getting them settled into their new lives.
Any amount would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated. Big or small.
I hope you can find it in your heart to help these children out. 360
Hello my name is Maryellen Romero, I am asking for help to pay for the cost of my mother’s burial/cremation. Sunday morning on May 28, 2017 I got a phone call from a family friend that my mother Krisjena Butler was at LSU hospital in ICU and on life support in Shreveport Louisiana. I didn’t want to believe it was true praying it was a mistake, I went to the extent of trying to call my mother hoping that it wasn’t true but no answer. An hour after receiving that phone call Tina ( our family friend) sent me the phone number so that I could speak with the doctors to find out what had happened and the state that she was in. The doctor I spoke with told me earlier that morning my mother had called 911 complaining of chest pain and abdominal pain and that the fire department had brought her in that they had resuscitated her twice before they reached the hospital during that time of being resuscitated she didn’t get enough oxygen to her brain and had to be on put on life support . The doctor said she had 0% chance of coming out of it, that I should make the trip from Lafayette Louisiana to Shreveport Louisiana to be with her. My younger brother and sister which lived with my mother decided it would be best to take her off of life support so that she could pass peacefully. So my husband, my two kids and I made the trip to Shreveport but an hour 1/2 before we made it to the hospital she passed without me being able to say my final goodbye and to tell her that I was sorry for being so stubborn and not putting my pride aside to fix our relationship and put the past where it belonged in the past. We had an estranged relationship because I still harbored resentment from being in foster care for 15 years and for the lifestyle she had chosen to live. Boone Funeral home in Bossier City Louisiana was the only funeral home that would meet with us (on Memorial Day) the following day after she passed. My mother wanted to be cremated, so we tried to find what was the cheapest as my older brother and I were the ones that anyway to an income to try and pay for funeral arrangements and we both have kids/family of our own and are barely making enough to get by as it is. We chose direct cremation which is $2051 and the cheapest they offered. My husband created a gofundme page so we can try to raise the money to cover the cost, and have only raised enough to cover the cost of the ern ($150). The director of the funeral home said they would give us 30 days to cover the cost which would be June 29, 2017 is our last day of the deadline. I am asking for any help if possible. She had no life insurance that would help elievate the cost and we do not have any family to help pitch in. Even though I was estranged from my mom I am doing the best I can to make sure that everything is taken care of and trying to keep it together( not doing so well with either). But I am trying to do right by her the best I can. If anyone would please help if at all possible

Hello everyone, I am writing out of frustration and loss of hope for the future. I have passed through so many issues that as i write, tears drop down my cheek. To loose a brother, father and mother to cancer is the most traumatic experience that i will not wish on my enemy.
I have become someone who suffers from depression and anxiety,fear of dying and so many illness which has prevented me from reaching my potential. I feel ugly and unaccepted and everything i try to do does not succeed.
I am desperately in need of £20,000 to help with the cost of my mum’s funeral who is currently in the morgue.
I also have outstanding medical bills and utility bills to pay. I will be evicted should i not be able to raise some of the outstanding £6,ooo rent arrears owed.
Each day i wake up feeling worthless, and pray that as God moved me to do this, he will also move you to assist me.
Thank you and God bless.

My dad recently passed away, this man was my hero. He taught me so many things in my life. I use to work with him building houses, and carpentry. Some of the buildings in downtown salt lake city Utah he worked on. He passed away shortly after my mom passed, I’ve been trying to get him buried near my mom but I’m short $4,000. My mother passed away after being diagnosed with dementia, my dad refused to believe that she wasn’t all there mentally. My sister Diana and I kept telling my dad during his last days it’s okay to go so he can see mom. My son bought his last dinner, but the one thing that gets to me is out of his 8 kids only 2 showed up. I love my father so much and the lot near my mother is still available. I want to pay my respects to my mother and my father who has been through so much in his life, he was pulled out of school in 2nd grade to work in the cotton feilds, his dad was a alcoholic and when he didn’t want my father around he would sit him on a metal coffee can near a tree which he was also tied to. My dad never git the education the anyone needs but he was still a very loyal aND dedicated hard worker. He was born in 1925 April 16
Readers and viewers must read this carefully because it is serious matter to deal with this amount of funeral costs. I made this request letter with my true to life story that I will explain why I need this donation and why it should be given to me.
My grandparents on my maternal side passed away last 2013 in a separate months that I did not expect that it will happened to them surprisingly. My grandfather passed away on March 17, 2013 that is Sunday after attending worship service and he died in the hospital . Then six months later, my grandmother passed away last September 10, 2013 also in the hospital died. Both of them are buried in Gardens Memorial Park, the 2nd largest Memorial Park in the whole Dumaguete Area.
The amount that I compute is totalled to $15,300 in US currency because it’s a family memorial lot. I am asking this for US dollars because it is the competitive value in foreign exchange eventhough my currency is Philippine Peso. I know this is a huge amount because one person is $3,060 each every burial with the tomb that includes the name of the person who passed away.
I am totally sincere and truthful about my financial situation because my family has inheritance of diabetes from generation to generation and we don’t have a budget for this to purchase memorial lot.
Memorial plan is only a coffin which is separate cost because if it add-on, the total amount will became worst unless if the price is package deal.
Anyway if the donor , rich or wealthy people, or those who would like to donate even if it did not reach the amount, my decision will be any amount can do as long as come from their own heart for donating because that is the goal amount.
This is categorized under Funeral Costs because it talks about the memorial lot in Dumaguete, Philippines.
This is good for 4 to 5 persons in my family because if something happens to my family at least ,the burial place is prepared anytime.
I believe many people will listen across the globe and also understands English.
Thank you for taking the time in reading my letter request in this respective website.
For those who are interested in my request, you can click Paypal Donate button for your request because death can happen any time and there is no specific date when a person dies. At least , I am prepared at all cost.
When I check your website, there was a category mentioned “funeral costs”, it was a right time that was posted in begging money because other websites was not mentioned in this kind of category. I am very happy for this because if this will be read by donors from other countries, I will be happy that I am prepared if something happened to me, at least I left a budget for my family when it comes to funeral cost because Filipinos are not well-prepare for this situation.
This will fall under funeral cost because it deals with funeral expenses and that’s the reason why I need this donation and it should be given to me because I am the only child and also a bread winner of the family. I have no brothers or sisters.
I am referring to Gardens Memorial Park in Dumaguete, Philippines.
My grandparents on my maternal side was buried there because supposed to be they will be buried in Dumaguete Memorial Park in which, it is the 1st largest memorial park in the whole Dumaguete then I found out that it is already fully occupied then my family decided to buried in Gardens Memorial Park due to the vacant memorial lot that is not occupied then it was timing that there was a vacant space for my grandparents to be buried.
Gardens Memorial Park is located at the heart of Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, Philippines. This is the 2nd largest memorial park in Dumaguete City under Philsouth Properties and Development Corporation.
This is a sincere and truthful about my financial situation when it comes to funeral costs.
I will include the amount which totals $15,300 and here are my explanations:
1. It is a 4 x 5 meters of Family Estate Memorial Lot good for 4 to 5 persons
2. It is covered Roadside corner Lots
3. It is inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT) here in the Philippines
4. This is subject to the respective memorial park’s rules and regulations
5. There is a tomb marker good for 4 to 5 persons
6. It includes restoration of landscaping and use of tents and tents during burial
7. This is spot-cash computation based on Philippine currency
8. The excess of the funds will be utilized for memorial plan of my family or known as Coffins that classified as Average Family Level because if it is rich category, the amount will be more than $15, 300.
That’s the main reason why I am asking donors of dollars because if I will do instalment basis, then it will result to a large amount without preparation.
I hope my request will be listen and spread across the globe or those who understand English version.
I am prepare for the funeral cost of my family here in the Philippines.
For the donations please donate it to my paypal account at
Im trying to raise funds for my late mums funeral cost and a headstone for the grave as my dad mum and oldest brother are all buried in the same grave,my dad died in March this year, he died from pneumonia, then my mum who was also in the same hospital and the same ward at the same time as each other were both on high dependency unit, my mum died just 3 weeks later from a blocked bowel and heart failure. I sold my car and all my jewellery to pay for dads funeral but i now still have got mums funeral to pay for and a headstone and also the care-home fees outstanding for both my parents, i have nothing of value left to sell, my dad was buried in the same grave as my oldest brother who died in 2009 of alcohol and drug overdose, i actually found him dead in his flat, my mum died on what would have been my oldest brothers 50th birthday which made the grief so much worsen for the family. My dads grave flowers where still alive when it was mums funeral she was buried in the same grave as my brother and dad, desperately needs help to pay mums funeral and the outstanding care-home fees and would love dearly to buy a headstone for my mum and dad and brother. I have tried to keep my head held high and have never ever asked anyone to help me, but im desperate. After the funeral cost has been paid whatever donations are left will buy a most wanted headstone for the grave ,any donation would be so appreciated. The picture is of my late parents from a few years ago, i miss them terribly and feel ashamed that i have not paid mums funeral yet but she died so quick after my dad died and i literally sold anything i had of value to pay dads funeral, these past few months have been so difficult as you can imagine, but hopefully someone somewhere out there might be able to help me please,i believe in god and im hoping god helps me through this difficult time too.
Thank you ever so much for reading this and if you can donate my sincere thank you and god bless you, and always remember you only get one mum and dad so cherish everyday with them and tell them each day you love them, i wish i could still do this. Thank you and god bless you all. XxxxX

My uncle died in Austria 1 week ago, He worked there since 1980 ,and came home only at weekends,last time ,he went out ,he had heart attack,and never come back again,it’s shame for me to ask for help,but now we really need it. My mother has cardiac failure ,and cannot work ,I went to work next to school to help her,our monthly payment is about 280 euro (We are live in Hungary),what is not enough to financing a funeral,most of the money are for pay the bills,like for water it’s about 30-40 euro for a month+electrical power about 80-120 euro/month ,so others for food . Cremation would be 1700 EURO at Austria ,and we don’t have that amount of money,i already sold my TV and my Phone to help my mother,so we have now 80.000 HUF,it’s about 250 EURO. I hope someone can help ,every cent would help . Thank you for reading my story,and special thanks to donates,if there will be . I wish happy holiday to everyone ! Sorry for my English,i know it’s not perfect,but I’m still learning..
Hello everyone. Here is my story. I hope there are some people out there who can help me.
Recently I received a call that’s my uncle of 36 years has passed away in a camping accident where he was sleeping in the back of a ute and someone drove the car and crashes cause family uncle to pass away.
My uncles funeral date has been made for 24th of November. I am currently low on funds an as we where close in age, we where both very close to one another. It would mean the world to me if I could please raise only $300 to get me to the funeral. I am able to stay with family so it is just flights to NSW an back to Melbourne that I need help with.
Please can some people help me pay my respect to my favourite uncle and best friend in the world.
I am a 26 year old who lives in South Africa Khayelitsha. I was living with my mother , two siblings and my son. We used to live in a shack and two weeks ago our shack burned down because of a fire that was caused by a paraffin stove at one of the shack in our block. The fire happened at night as a result of that my mother got burned and one of my siblings passed away. We lost every thing in the fire , our clothes , furniture , bank cards , I’d you name it. My mother is in hospital suffering from smoke inhalation and 3rd degree burn wounds. We have not buried my sibling he has been in the government mortuary for two weeks. My son and my sibling were visiting my friend when the fire happened that is how we got lucky. We are staying with my friend and her husband now the husband has asked us when are we leaving. I just need money so that we can bury my sibling and so that can rent a back room for us . I do not want fancy thing a bed , second hand fridge , a two plate stove and a couple of cutlery will do until I can find a job …..that is after I have a new I.D and a birth certificate for my son and sibling. Any mount will be appreciated So that we can pick up the pieces and start over again.
Mother Passed away and left me with nothing
My mother passed away last month and left me with nothing as in nothing and even have to borrow money for her funeral services. I took care of my mother who was 90 years old, for 6 years. Since then i left work and took care of her 24/7 365days until the time she died. I was receiving a minimal pay from the IHSS (In Home Support Service) which i basically share with her.
I Loved everyday that passed being with my mother, looking after her and made sure she was okay. I forgot and never thought of one day the Lord will take her away from and only then that i realized that i was never prepared from it if it happens, which is precisely my predicament now. And when she died, i had no funds for her funeral and other expenses which left me constrained to borrow money from friends to give her a decent funeral.
I have received some donations from friends and relatives but not enough to cover the expenses. I am left with no inheritance, no money and jobless and feel so devastated firstly on the loss of my mother and secondly how to make both ends meet.
I am looking for job but am not getting any offers. Please, please, please i am begging to all you who read my plea, I need you to open your heart and help me in my predicament. I would greatly appreciate any amount of donations you can give and I will pray to God to Bless you for your kind deeds.
Thank you and God Bless you.
Death In Family, Need Help With Financial Difficulties
My girlfriend’s son passed away in a car accident a little over two weeks
ago, June 14th.. though the funeral has been taken care of and his company
paid a part of the funeral expenses, the loss has left her in financially
unstable. Her family and myself are doing everything we can to raise money
and help remove that burden for her, but it’s been very difficult. Anything
would be appreciated at this point.. she’s having an extremely difficult
time with this and money problems certainly don’t help. They are, however,
unavoidable and add stress to an already tough situation. Thank you in
advance for anything you can do.

Website where people can make donations
Hello my name is Nathaniel and just recently my Father died. It was a shock to everybody he was healthy and would exercise everyday. My Father was a very loving man and I had a special bond with him I’m going to miss him.
We are not really a family that has alot of money I’m currently attending a community college, and working a part time job. My Mother committed suicide when I was five. I have two other siblings that are both younger than me so I’m going to have to step up and take responsibility for them now that my Father is gone.
What I really need money for is my Fathers funeral I want a proper burial I got an estimation of how much it would be and it came out to $8,500. So any donations would help I tried to post on other begging sites but they wanted money to post a beg, and if I don’t have any money how am I going to pay to post a beg.
This is my last option I have already contacted my Grandma and Grandpa they said they could pay $5,000 I only need $3,000 more please help me out. I’m very grateful of people like you.
Thank you all so much.
I have a friend whose 3 year old boy drowned over the 4th of July weekend. He was born premature and had fought many medical problems in his short 3 years. He was a happy child, full of life, love and curiosity. The family had a pool with a fence, locking gate, latched door from the house to the pool area but and adult supervision. Accidents still happen even with the most diligent safety guards in place. The little boy managed to slip away unnoticed long enough to get in the pool.
They did everything they could to save him but God decided it was his time to go to heaven. Now the family is facing the harsh reality of the funeral business. If they can’t pay $2500 up front there won’t be a funeral or burial. They have raised $800 so far. We have a donation envelop going around at the office and will probably raise at least $200 more. That leaves $1500 left to give their baby a proper funeral. If everyone reading this could spare even $10 it would go to a good cause.
I promise you this is not a scam. I am heartbroken over the loss of my friends little boy. He died in her arms choking on vomit he aspirated after she pulled him out of the pool. She said she was told that he’d aspirated a chicken nugget he’d had for lunch and just couldn’t get any air.
He was taken to a major children’s hospital in the midwest and everything was done to save him but he had no brain activity and passed away 24 hours after the accident. Drowning accidents happen every summer and they are all tragic. For those who are able to afford the up front funeral expenses be glad that you will not have to also bear the burden of trying to raise a large sum of money in a short time.
My friend is a single mother living on next to nothing and the $800 she’s raised is like a fortune. She shouldn’t have to worry about being able to afford burying her baby. Please help in any way you are able. I will send a personal thank you to every single person who donates, even if it’s a penny.
This is not easy for me to do. I have always worked hard for my money and I have a lot of pride so I do not like to ask for help. But my family is in a bind. My name is Erica. I am 25 years old and I am a full time student. I hope to one day earn a masters degree in Education and I would like to be a teacher. (maybe one day a writer as well.)
My family has always been very close and we always take care of each other. Well my sisters and I lost my mother 2 days before this past Christmas. It was very sudden and unexpected. We still are not sure why. She did not have any kind of life insurance and she was on disability so there was no money left over for funeral arrangements. I have moved in to my step dad’s house to help support him, my younger sister, and my two year old nephew.
I had to cut my hours at work to part time for school and to help take care of my family. Thing are really difficult for us financially now. My step dad is getting older and he is working his self into
the ground. We could really use an angel right now. It is a constant struggle to get bills paid and to pay of debt. I am trying not to drop out of school because I know an education is the only way to make something of my self. But I fear I might not have a choice before to long if the bills keep adding up.
Any thing that any one can do to help us would be great. It would be nice to stop stressing about money so that I can start properly grieving the loss of my mother. God Bless everyone and thank you.

Disabled with No Income
I’m disabled with no income, my husband died three weeks ago. I have applied for the benefits I’m entitled to, but all that could take from a few weeks to a couple months. The funeral parlor took my last 500.00 to cremate him. I had to take any groceries I could back to the store to raise the cash they wanted and they waived many fees for me. I’m desperate now, I’ve tried selling on Craigslist and Amazon, but nothing yet. Please help if you can and know that I’ll appreciate your help even if it’s only a dollar or two.
