Hi, this is my first time doing something like this. I figured hey why not it can’t hurt. My wife and I have 3 teenage children. We are extremely fortunate that they are smart, well focused and seem to be staying on the right path. Our oldest is heading off to college in a couple of months to study law. Our middle child in high school has a part time job now and is going to be taking up cosmetology in September when school starts back up. Our youngest son who will be starting high school next year is very athletically gifted in lacrosse and football. All 3 kids are on the A honor roll for their grades. My wife could not advance at her last job so she went back to college to get her teaching assistant degree after working 17 years as a teachers aide.At this point she has gotten a part time job with our local city school district that she loves. Last year (2016)when she was attending college I injured my left rotator cuff and ended up having surgery. In 2014 I injured my right rotator cuff and had to have surgery. After returning to work in 2015 after recovering from surgery the company where I was employed at decided to downsize and close our branch. I was fortunate enough to land a new job just 2 months after their closing. The bad part was the injury just several months after I started. So now I am told by my employer that I can’t go back to work unless I am 100% and my doctor said that I will never be 100%. Ok so now I am trying to find a new job ,something within my restrictions. Wish me luck on my job search please and thank you. So to put this all in a nutshell our income over the last almost 3 years has been extremely diminished. We are fighting to save our home that we have owned since 1992. We are currently 4 months behind in the mortgage. Our bank will not work with us because it is a portfolio mortgage not backed by the government. Bills are adding up due to lack of income. We are a close family with religious values that we are trying to instill in our children. But there comes a time when it doesn’t seem that faith is enough and you have to reach out for help. That is the point that I am at now, not feeling like a good husband or father. Not (spoiling the kids) but being able to provide just some of the basics in their teenage years. Hopefully my job situation will improve very soon. I am sure that I can find something, my wife has just also applied for a second part time job that will hopefully happen. I am very fortunate to have the family that I have and am trying to stay positive, but as days progress it seems to get harder. Any help would be honestly appreciated at this time. And as our situation improves and gets better we will certainly pay forward to others when possible. Thank you. If you have any other questions feel free to contact me. David
My name is Jimmy, I am 29 years old, and I’m an addict. Now I know anyone reading this, who is willing to help someone out might shake their heads and not even consider me. Ive been in recovery for almost 2 years now, and I am proud to say that I have been clean and sober for about 6 months since my last relapse. I have learned in my meetings to admit that I have a problem and ask for help when I need it. I will tell you my story if you have the patience to read it, and if it touches you in some way, I’m glad it could.
I was raised in poverty, in the suburbs of Chicago Illinois, as the middle child of 7 siblings. My parents were together for most of my childhood, but suffered drug and alcohol addiction. Anyone who knows about those things knows that it comes with a slew of other problems as well. I am sure my parents did the best they could for all of us under the circumstances. However, we all witnessed them go through the attempts to get clean, the physical and mental abuse, the infidelity issues and, of course, the financial burdens. They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, I’ve even heard some say that alcoholism and addiction can be hereditary. 6 out of the 7 of us now suffer from the same fate. I consider myself to be lucky, as I have had an amazing wife who’s been with me for over 12 years now. I also have 2 beautiful children who give me every reason in the world to change and be a better father.
My parents split when I was around 12, my older siblings had moved away, the younger one stayed with my father, and I moved pretty far away to Phoenix, Arizona with my mother who had 2 more children. I would have to say my mother was worse off than my father when it came to her alcoholism and drug addiction issues. I was doing the best I could to help her raise my 2 little sisters, as she spent a lot of her time incapacitated. Marijuana was a normality in my family, my father grew it, and my mother, I guess, tried to connect with me by using with me. Times got financially tough, and at one point I was even selling it for her to help pay the bills and put food on the table. I was naive and thought I was having fun, but also didn’t realize how fast I was growing up and what I was missing out on– you know, like being a normal kid and focusing on my future. I loved my parents and, of course, my siblings, especially my 2 sisters who I essentially raised as my own. I even dropped out of high school, and did odd jobs wherever I could to help out. At almost 17 years old, however, I had had enough and started to see how bad she was. I started to realize that I needed to be my own man. Even with my addiction to marijuana, I ran away from home and it didn’t take me long to establish somewhat of a life for myself. I had spent a couple of months on the street, playing my guitar for dollars here and there., stayed with friends when I could and eventually got my first job at a burger place, and my own little studio apartment. I stayed at that job for 5 years, moved all the way up to the store management.
I’d always go visit my mom and my little sisters and make sure that they were ok. By this point, my mom was heavy Into the harder drugs. I gave her an ultimatum to get some help or I was going to call child protective services. My oldest brother had bought a house out here and was doing fairly well for himself. My mother decided to give custody of my 2 little sisters to him and his fiancee while she tried to get her life together. I didn’t know much about his fiance, and it is a decision that I will feel guilty about and regret for the rest of my life, as a horrible tragedy was the result for my 3 year old little sister, as well as my 7 year old little sister, who will suffer that trauma for the rest of her life. I won’t go into detail about it as you really don’t want to know. But here is a link, and a photo if you are curious.
That tragedy affected me greatly. Led me into a world of depression. And the only example I ever had of getting out of that world was with drugs and alcohol. So that’s what I had turned to. Fortunately for me I had already been dating my wife for just short of a year, who hardly knew me then but tried her best to help me through what happened. I got tired of working at the burger place and moved to a convenient store as a manager. There I stayed for the next 7 years. Towards the end of that job, it was getting really stressful and rough, I was working 70-80 hours a week sometimes, which is when I got heavy into cocaine. I was also making good money at the time and liked to go out to the casino. I said I was an addict, and I’ve had many addictions. The depression issue and the addiction issue and the alcoholism and especially the gambling led me to make some really bad financial decisions, and over all these years, I really dug a hole for my family. I owe an awful lot to my wife, who has stuck by my side through all of this. She is really the best woman I know. She goes straight and narrow, and always had faith in me and believed that I could get over these issues. About 3 years ago is when I hit the worst point in my life, made more bad decisions, lost my good job and almost lost my family over it. My wife told me a long time ago that if I stayed with her, her love would make me be strong. It took a long time for me to let it, but it has.
Anyways, that is my story, and for a long time, I let my upbringing and the bad things that have happened in my life be an excuse for the things I was doing. I am doing well now emotionally, seeing a counselor and going to my meetings. I’m really trying hard to put my life back together. I know my wife and kids love me, but we struggle because of the bad choices I’ve made. There are many things I could ask for a donation for, ranging from the small ones like new clothes for my wife, who never buys anything for herself, or shoes and school supplies for my boy who grows out of stuff so fast, it’s unreal, for diapers and wipes for my little girl, to the bigger things, like a decent car, as I’m always throwing money away on my piece of crap to keep it going, or money to fix my teeth as the years of neglect stemming from my addictions have taken their toll on them and I dream of smiling for photos or walking into a job interview with confidence. I don’t look like an addict until I smile, and recently earned my GED in hopes of getting a better job again to get out of this hole. Maybe one with dental coverage lol. I could ask for money for a nice vacation for my family, as we’ve never taken one. But to me, these are are things that as a man, a father, and a husband–its my responsibility to provide those things that they need, no matter what I have to do, and do my best to scrimp and save and plan for the things they want.
It’s not hopeless for us, especially now that I’m finally on the right path. We are both working full time. She works at a bank and I deliver pizza. We own our own home. But in the past year, we’ve gone through our savings, and had to put numerous payment plans to take care of the debt that I caused and catch up on the things I let fall behind. These past 2 months have been really rough, which is why I’m writing this. Our mortgage is behind 2 payments now. We’ve been having a lot of car problems and repairs have been ridiculously expensive, which took priority over the mortgage. We have both worked hard consistently for many many years, and I understand that it’s nobody’s fault, but my own the situation that I have put us in. But I promised my wife I would do whatever it took to keep what feels like the only real security that we have right now besides each other. So here I am begging the more fortunate than myself. The more financially responsible. The mortgage payments are around 550 each.
It felt good to write this., it feels good knowing that somebody might read it. I’m not really sure how I feel about someone taking pity and donating their money. However, if you can find it in your heart to help however you can, it would mean a lot to me and my family. I am, however, grabbing on to hope and I know, that if nobody reads this, or decides to help monetarily, we will figure it out like we always do. I really just don’t want to see my wife struggle anymore, or worry. And since I found this site, when we are back on our feet, I will, for sure be on here, reading these stories like mine and helping any way I can, even if it’s only a few bucks. Everyone deserves a second chance.
I am embarrassed to even ask for your help, but I am at the point of desperation and that is why I am only putting the initial of my first name online, but I hope you will take my request seriously.
For years I have wanted to purchase a home or rent a better place to live. I do work and I have had a rewarding but very low paying career (I will be happy to answer any questions you have privately). Just when it seems like I am going to have a chance to save some money to make our dreams come true, something happens to put a stop to our dream.
I have applied for loans but had no luck due to my lack of income. I am not a greedy person and I really appreciate any help I can get and would one day hope to repay the favor to someone.
We are needing around 3500-4000 dollars. This money would be used for a down payment either through trying to get an FHA loan for our own house or used to pay a month’s rent and a deposit and utilities turned on at a rental house. Our first preference would be to buy a home, but renting is also an option. If we could ever come up with that amount, we would find a way to pay the mortgage or rent.
If you are willing to help, I really appreciate it. If not, I completely understand as well and thank you for taking the time to read my request. Please also note the picture of the house you see here is not something we are looking to buy or rent. At the present, we don’t know what we can afford or what the house would look like.
Thank you so much!
I have always put other people before me.
I thought they needed it more then me.
I was raised in a poverty family. My family!
Raised by poor, low self-esteem people. My family!
Raised by self-destructive people. My family!
Raised by physically abusive, drunk, drug addicts. My family!
Raised in an unhealthy, unsafe dirty environmentMy family!
I had no idea this was going to affect me for the rest of my life.
Suddenly, it all went away. I thought, when my mother moved me and my sisters to another state. I was so wrong!
I never understood as a child why I couldn’t and never would see my dad and grandpa and grandma again. Then I realized why when I got older.
I was left alone the majority of my childhood years. Always feeling scared and always hungry. I felt this fear that I was all alone and on my own. And I was on my own!
I often thought about my grandma. I remembered her chickens. I used to watch her gather the chicken eggs every morning. I remember the smile on her face when she came out of the chicken coop with her basket chuck full of eggs. I remembered her cleaning the eggs and dividing them up into different baskets. She would look at me and say, “never put all your eggs in one basket.” I never new what she meant. I was only 4! I also remembered her selling her chicken eggs to the neighbors. Because, I got to go with her to their houses. This was my favorite part. The neighbours fed me cookies and milk while I waited like a good girl. After she sold all her eggs, we went to the grocery store. There was that smile on her face again. She bought flour, butter, cheese and milk. I got to carry the milk. Back at home, when she left out the flour on the kitchen table, I knew grandma was getting ready to cook. Biscuits and gravy were my favorite. I will never forget this! I knew I was going to eat. So…,I stayed close to grandma in the kitchen and waited. Like a good girl! I never knew this was going to affect me for the rest of life!
Now, living in a big city, still all alone and hungry, feeling fear that I didn’t know if I was ever going to see my mother again, wondering how I was going to eat. I was only 7.
I use to walk to school everyday. On my way home I would stop at the stores, go in and get candy from the candy dish they left out on the counter for customers. Soon, they all knew my name.
I would notice in the winter time some of our neighbors pushing a cart through the snow. These carts were full of groceries. These people were older, like my grandma. That’s why I started talking to them. I asked them if they wanted some help pushing their cart. And this was the beginning of my delivery job! I started grocery shopping for our neighbors, mostly senior citizens. And winter time became my most busiest season. That smile I rememberedon my grandmas face, now was on my face. They would invite me in, feed me, listen to my stories and paid me money for helping them and being a good girl.
I never knew this was going to affect me for the rest of my life!
Years went by and I earned a lot of pennies.
Suddenly, it all went away. My mother moved me and my sisters away from the city and into the suburbs. The company she was working for moved their business out to the suburbs and asked her to come with them. Fear, sad and alone! I didn’t know if I was ever going to see those people again. I didn’t know who was going to feed me. I was only 9 going on 10. I rememberedmy mother asking me for my money and reminding me to save some for the church because they needed it more then me. After church, my mother would drive me to her work, give me a bucket full of cleaning supplies and explained to me on Sunday’s after church I was going to clean the back of the warehouse. She would leave me there and later would pick me up. Fear! It’s back! But, I did what I was told to do. Like a good girl! I never saw any money! I didn’t realize why until I was older. I rememberedthe holidays, because I was told by my mother to knock on neighbors doors and ask them if they wanted to buy the driftwood center pieces I was selling. When I sold them, I had to go back home and get some more. The money I received from the center pieces sold went to my mother and the church. They needed it more then me. So, I thought! Now, I can’t buy those dishes. So, I surrendered with no hope and knowing we still had the chipped plates and glasses in the cupboard. Giving away my money is what I was taught. Because I thought they needed it more then me. It became a way of life for me. I never knew this was going to affect me for the rest of my life.
School became fun! My gym teacher asked me to join the gymnastics team she coached after school. Yes! I didn’t even think about it. I said, “yes!” I was in 8th grade and didn’t stop until I graduated high school. It changed my whole life! I became a different person! A person who now has some good friends. A person other people cared about. A person that was invited into other people’s homes. A person who now felt loved, needed and respected! Feeling I never felt before! I only knew fear!! Not now, because I knew I was going to see those people again. Sports taught me how to trust, how to be a team player, how to set and achieve goals, how to discipline myself and develop confidence, how to build up my self-esteem and how to care about myself and others. All because I said, “yes!” All because my coach saw something in me that I couldn’t see. I didn’t have to sell door-to-door and I didn’t have to scrub floors. I didn’t have to give all money away, because I didn’t make any money in gymnastics. What I did make was ghost money. Money that can’t buy what gymnastics taught me. Values!! My coach knew I needed it more!! I couldn’t touch my ghost money, but I could touch how I felt and happiness! After high school, it was easy for me to get jobs. Being trained on-the-job made it easy to find other jobs where I was able to make more money. I never only work one job. I worked two! Living on your own meant paying more bills. And, yes I was still giving my money away. Sometimes to my oldest who couldn’t hold down a job and even to people I didn’t know. I thought they needed it more then me! By the time I was 26, the money I was earning just was not enough. I had become a jack-of-all-trades and master of none. I went to the bank for the very first time. Fear! It was back! I needed money! It was only me taking care of me. Something I knew how to do very well! I needed money!! I received a large loan from the bank. And, instead of giving it away, I invested it. I bought a 3-flat apartment building. I had no idea this was going to change my life. I became self-employed for the next thirty years. And yes, still giving my money away. I thought they needed it more then me. Today, at the age of 61, I have stopped giving away my money. Now I need it more, not them! I still owe over 80,000 dollars for my home. And, I don’t have it! Jobs are not easy to come by, especially at my age. Fear! It’s back! I wish I knew then what I know now, I would have money. Now I’m asking for money! If you can, please send a donation! Thank you! I’m speechless with gratitude!! I can’t thank you enough
The picture is happier times. First I lost my husband in a motorcycle accident then a month after he passed I was told I had Breast Cancer. Very grateful I survived with that I started to get my life back together with my Best Friend. We became roommates and we finally bought a house. Things were going well until about 6 months ago. She had personal issues with her daughter and took custody of the grand kids. She had to take a leave of absence from work and when she returned her Job performance still was not up to par and lost her job. She had been with the company for 16 years. So here we are today and we will be losing our home. We both are not that young to start all over again. We both worked really hard to finally have something. I talk to God everyday and and ask for help in her getting another job but nothing is happening. She wants to work and would even work 2-3 jobs to help pay the bills. At this time we are now very behind on our mortgage and will lose everything. I do not know where else to turn to ask for help.
We have sold everything we could possibly sell to raise funds. If we lose our home we will have to give up our dogs since most rentals do not allow them. Please I am begging for some help to get us through this. We always try to give back to our community when we can. Thanks for anyone that can help us we appreciate it.
I need about 5,000 to save my home and repair my car. Any donation is greatly appreciated. I feel like I am circling the drain. I work hard but have to drive 180 mile round trip and my car needs help. My home has bad plumbing ,broken heating ,leaks and I am 4 months behind on payments to Private mortgage holder. My summer job starts in 2 months and I will have better income then.I am so close to losing everything and so close to turning it around for the better. Please help me over this hurdle. Thanks
Unfortunately, I don’t think I will have some problem in our family. I understand that other people have more important treatment public.At the beginning I talk about my family. My name is Arina.We are simple people. I’m a teacher. My husband is a fireman. We have a son 6 years. Six months later, we lived in an apartment, we had a car. But we dicided to change our lives. Two years ago we decided to move to another country in a big city, so it was better for our family, of course, for our son and our future child. We live in a small town. Every year people think how they can change your life. Thus, our city becomes an unbearable place people are fired for reasons unknown, it all falls down there’s nothing to Refine. Kindergartens, school is closed too. We lived near the smelter. Our environment is very polluted. Our children have bad health. People get fired at work. But my husband is very hardworking. And now we live with my parents, because we sold our apartment and our car for a new apartment in another country at a big city problem.Our is that we do not have 50 000 $. We only have $ 15,000 or more. We are working with. In the new town, the husband may receive more challenging work, I can go to training in their profession of the teacher. But for our children, of course, the prospect to go to a well educated school and then to enroll in a good Institute.I understant it is with great difficulty to get money, and, of course, there are people who really need it. But please help us to purchase this new apartment.Husband tries working, working part-time, if possible. and I also work. But still very difficult for us to pay the full amount. Parents ask, we don’t thank them for what they got. I’ll send you all of our costs. Thank you thank you so much. I hope you will pass my letter on the care of our family.
First off, I never thought I’d be in a position like this. Begging like a hungry dog who hasn’t ate in weeks. But I am, it’s a little known thing called life. My troubles starting erupting about two years ago when my mother called me and was holding a secret from us for almost a year. She explained that she hadn’t worked in almost 3 months and got a lawyer and had filed for disability. Her doctor had been constantly trying to get her to do this for a couple years now we finally found out. Anyway my mom was broke, scared and had just a little bit of money left. I did what any son would do for his mom and I went to the bank. I had good credit and things were going alright for me. I ended up taking two good size loans out within that year. Everything seemed to be alright until my mom got denied for her disability. That’s when things started getting worse. I had no choice but to take out more money. I maxed my credit out. I was paying out more then I had coming in. By the way, I’m a single father who pays child support for a beautiful 9 year old girl who was born with Turner syndrome. It came down to where I fell behind on my mortgage started getting payday loans. It all snowballed downhill from there. I tryed to refinance my house but it was to late my credit was hit. I held on as long as I could. Which brings me to asking or begging for help. I need 2500 to get caught up on my mortgage or Pennymac is gonna foreclose my house. It’s embarrassing asking for money, especially from people I don’t know, but I have no where to turn. This is my last resort. Any donation at all would be grateful. Thank you and god bless.
My Name is Tobias Jose Jamo, 46 years old from Mozambique, Manica Province. I am from Chimoio town. I have borrowed money from Barclays Bank while I was working to build my house from. I lost my job on 4 December 2014. Until now I haven’t got another job. I am getting 2 or 4 months contract with a salary between 400 to 600 USD per month and it is hardly enough to make ends meet. The Barclays bank has phoned me several times and the last time they phoned me, they said they were going to take the issue to court . I am afraid if they take this case to court , the court may decide may sale my house. I have a wife and 4 daughters aged 17, 14 , 8 and 4 years old. This means I have to start renting a house to put my family. I will not have have enough to eat and pay school fees for my kids. My kids will have a risk of dropping out of school and they may become alphabets.
I am looking for help in the form of a donation of 15.000,00 USD to pay back the bank.
I am from a poor family. I am the eldest son in a family of 3 . My father is an ex-combatant and earns less that 100 USD per month. My mother we presume she is dead from 14 years of civil war which took place years ago. I have no one in the family who can help. I thought I would get a decent job and continue to pay the bank but unfortunately no job has come by. I have nothing to sale which may cover up this amount. I have only my house and the 4 daughters in my life.
To make things worse , my 17 year daughter has enrolled in Catholic University this year. I had to look for a room to rent and pay her university fees. I don’t have any money on my savings. I work from hand to mouth. Her dream will come to a halt if I don’t get this help.
I have been browsing through google when I came up to this site and decided to give a try. I am really desperate and in need of a hand.
I wish the best of your consideration and your kindly help is greatly appreciated .
I could Not Post The Bank Account Showing the loan I had in PDF , your system does not accept .
I have fallen on some hard times over the last six months. My son, broke his right arm in June. Then had to have emergency surgery on his left hand in July. The next day I lost my job. My daughter, has been in hospital/ER couple time and ended up having emergency surgery in November.
I have been working through a temp agency; however, it’s not been full time and minimal pay. This has taken a toll on us financially. And we are at the point that everything has caught up to us and we just don’t have the finances. I was wondering if you would be willing to help us out financially through this difficult time.
With our bills, utilities, mortgage, college, vehicle repairs, copayments, taxes, having to travel to college where my daughter is living for her surgery because she needed someone to stay with her the week after, we are flat broke.
I’ve managed to juggle the bills up to this point; however, everything has now caught up to the point credit cards are maxed out, mortgage and utilities are past due and medical bills have gone to collections.
We’ve sold one of our vehicles and currently, we need almost $10,000 to get bills caught up. Any help, in any amount would be greatly appreciated. I am desperate and to the point, I don’t know what else to do and don’t have many options. We don’t qualify for a bank loan and a cash advance loan is only for a very short term with extremely high interest rates. It seems like when it rains it pours and I am just getting further and further behind and more and more depressed. I’ve always had a job since I was 15 yr old, now I feel like I’m letting my family down.
I feel embarrassed having to ask for help. But I just don’t know what else to do.
Treasurer of St Mary’s Boys Home
I am Antany Arulpragasam, Managing Personal of an Orphanage Home (St Mary’s Boys Home in Sri Lanka) which provides free education, foods, shelter and other basic needs. Since, we do not have sufficient fund to provide the reasonable foods for 60 children in our Orphanage Home, we borrowed a bank loan amount of US$19,000 from a private bank in Sri Lanka under my name pledging my job I do. I was managing our Orphanage Home full time until 2015 however, due to insufficient money to run our Home, I started working from last year.
This Orphanage Home is for children who have been affected by poverty and domestic civil war. We provide counselling for the children who have been badly affected in the domestic civil war which has destructed number of young children mentally and physically. Number of children have become orphans and lost their parents, guardians in the civil war. We experience much harder stories through affected children statement.
In order to provide better foods, education and psychological recovery events, we needed more money and we borrowed the amount of US$19,000 (in local currency LKR 2,900,000). I am spending my monthly salary from my job for Orphanage home and it is really difficult to have saving from my limited salary package to repay this borrowing. We wish to share the loan agreement personally if is required and we hesitate to publish in public forum since it is confidential document.
We kindly submit this request into your heart to find a generous way for us to help to pay back this borrowing and provide financial support to run our orphanage home. We manage this orphanage home as registered Charity and we expect more donors to fund for better life of our children.
Your every single dollar will provide meal or education to our poor children. We highly appreciate your generous heart.
God bless you all.
Thank you very much

Hello, My name is Melanie and I am 59 and in need of help paying off my house. I just lost my husband on January 8, 2017 who was 57. He was on disability and was on hospice since April of 2016. We had lived together for 16 years. Finally got married on October 21, 2016. His now ex-wife would not give him a divorce. I live in a state where the injured party, her, gets what she wants and you pay for everything or just stay married. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer this past year and so she needed to get on Medicaid and could only do it if she wasn’t married. Hence the divorce now. Anyway, tried to collect survivor benefits and social security office told me I had to be married to my husband at least 9 months to receive and my state does not recognize common law marriage. So now I will not be getting any of his money. Since 2000 I took care of my mom she died in 2014 took care of my husband with copd starting in 2006 he died 2017 and took care of my dad starting in 2010 and he died in 2012. So since I have not worked for money since 2000 I am not eligible for disability from social security. So now I have a house that I owe $42,000.00 and I don’t know how I am going to pay for it. I only get $1,000.00 a month and my house payment which includes an escrow is $587.00 a month. Just had to pay $6,000.00 for my husbands funeral. Also have credit card debit but I want my house!! I have lived here 23 years and don’t want to lose it. So if just 10,000 people each donated $4.00 to my cause of paying off my house I will have my house so that I can die here too. All of the above people were in this house when they passed. SO PLEASE HELP ME! YOUR DONATIONS WILL FOREVER BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
My name is Irene and I am a 61 year old grandmother of 4 who is disabled due to a severe brain injury I received from a car accident back in 2009. I actually have a friend helping me to write this. After my accident I developed diabetes and an unable to hold down permanent employment including part time work. Back in 2014 my daughter left the kids with me and left with no financial support. So I have been taking care of them and don’t really know where she is. I found a house to rent and we have managed to make it month to month. Sometimes I find things and fix them up a little and try to sell them. I do try very hard to do everything I can for my grandchildren. I believe it has only been by the grace of God that we have made it this far. I have recently been given a great opportunity to purchase the house that we have been living in for the last 3 years. The landlord said she would let me buy it for under market value. I looked at the tax sites and got the information I needed to make sure she was right. Then I tried to get a loan and assistance from many different agencies but no one was able to help us because I either did not have enough money in fees and taxes or because I had no credit. My landlord agreed to let me buy the house but she wants $20,000 down. I could not even begin to figure out a way to manage to save this much money. I have to follow a budget to make it each month on my benefits so there is very little left at the end of each month. I do know that if we are able to get the house that it would give my grandchildren and myself the security of having a home that we never have to move from. I have paid my bills on time and can manage the day to day workings of the home. I know that we can make this work especially knowing that it belongs to us. If not we will have to find a house in a worse neighborhood just to manage. I do not want to move to a bad area and risk the kids getting into trouble or even worse. Please find it in your heart to help me give my grandchildren a home of their own, they have been moved around too much.
Hello to all! I saw this opportunity to ask the good people for help, so I’ve decided to take my chances. Who doesn’t risk anything, can’t win anything, that is what people say.
I have my mortgage loan for a ten years know. At the beginning it was all good, my sallary was big enough to cover the mortgage and all other expenses. But things have changed, like that usualy is in life. My paycheck went down, some extra expenses appeared, the rate for mortgage went up and soon I got in this circle of not being able to pay the mortgage. Bank has become very nervous because now I’m lot of payments behind, they are pushing me realy hard and I’m affraid that I could lose the home for me and my family. And my pet. I’ve tried to buy me some more time to make the payments but the bank has no more understanding for me. I’ve tried some other sources of incomes and tried to get some mone but with no luck. Also tried with some members of my family but they don’t have money to lend, they are happy if they can cover their own needs. And lending more, even if I find the source, would just lead me into more deeper debt that I alreday have, so this is not the way out. I’m sure that many of you at leat once in their lives felt how is to be stuck in the corner with no way out and thinkig all the time, how the hell this has happened to me? It isn’t pleasant situation at all, isn’t it? It wasn’t easy decision to beg the money form strange people, I was always very proud but hard situation in life makes people do all sort of things. But I’m not kind of person who will become criminal and get money in that way, no matter how desperate I might be. So, if you have some extra money that you don’t need and the will to help someone who needs it, please pay some contributions to me and help me save my home. In total I need 7000$ but any sum at all that I manage to collect will help me to make my current situation better. I know that there are lot of people in this world who are good and willing to help and I know that afterwards they are feeling better men, they are feeling like they’ve done something good for this world and the people who are not in situation to help themselves. If you are among this people you will recognize that is one of this situation when you can change somebody’s life for better, my life.
Thank you all!
My father was able to pay it. He had to upgrade the foundation with a new one and around at the same time, health issues started to show up but not limited to hypertension. My mother died a little bit later from starvation due to cancer blocking important pathways to nutrition. Although he is now married with another woman, it happens that she is sick as well although she does all she can to help him as well. He has over $120,000 left to pay at this time. He had to make a big choice when he had to stop one of his sidelines for his health. I know for sure that he has worked a lot. He was often alone working on the house and still do to this day. There were some days where he literally or almost got up to work for his jobs then working on the house to go sleep. He has tried to finish upgrading his house. I can tell you that he is a great example of determination and I wish we could help him more for his great contributions.
Huge thanks from the heart and the light ! May what you seed reward you more in return !

To all generous and kind philanthropists out there ,
My name is Muhammad and I am desperately in need of some cash to buy a house. I am 41 now and at this age, I find it difficult to borrow money from most legal financial institutions in my country to pay for the house deposit. They seem to want to have some form of collateral. Where am I going to get such thing when I don’t even own any property? I have two very small kids aged 2 and 4. My worry is that, in case anything happens to me, my kids and wife would have nowhere to go or stay. I’ve been renting a flat for years now, and yet, I am still unable to save enough to buy a house. The house (a medium-cost apartment, that is) I want to buy is priced at about US$77,000. This housing project will be completed in 2018 and is located somewhere in Kuala Lumpur. The project is designed under a programme meant for people in the middle income group. Recently, the house developer sent me an offer letter saying that they’ve selected me for a unit but told me to come to their office within a period of two weeks from the email date. I was happy to receive that but unfortunately, I need to pay the down payment/deposit which is 10% of the apartment price (about US%77,000). I just do not know what to do and only hope God will show the way.
I’ve tried asking relatives and friends but to no avail. With the salary I earn monthly, I do not think I’ll ever give a small but comfortable home and shelter to my little kids and wife. Now that I have some health issues such as high cholesterol and hypertension, all the more reason for me to worry about the future of my family.
Someone, anyone, please help me out of this situation.
May God bless you and reward you more with your kind help.
Thank you so much.
I am a hardworking person who is in desperate need of help. e having to ask for help. Between 50 hours a week and caring for my husband at night I have no other option. My husband suddenly became disabled in 2008. Because we lived frugally we were able to make ends meet with just my salary. He then had three major surgeries and lengthy hospital stays and our savings dwindled to zero. I can’t believe this is happening. I am usually the giver…care packages for troops, pet supplies to animal shelter, cooking at homeless shelter, etc. I never ask for help but now I have no other choice.
I need to pay $23000 toward the mortgage on my house to save it. I would be very appreciative of any donations or even a personal loan. Any help is appreciated. God bless! Please know I will pay this forward
I’m here because there’s no one else left to ask for help.
We are a young family with kids still to come and we bought a house with a small farm a couple of years ago. It was abandoned for several years before and we had to sleep in a car for the first weeks, while repairs went on. It took an enormous effort and time to bring the house into a decent condition. It’s far from perfect, but we love it as it is. When future finally started to look brighter, my sawmill business went down and our income dropped significantly and this led to a continuous growth of debts. Now we are late with the mortgage payments for several months and we risk to loose our home with everything we put into it. We still have around $ 22’000 to pay for our farm and we do not expect to rise all of it, but we desperately need help with our monthly payments, since now we can hardly cover one third of them.
We do our best to get back on our feet, but the additional income from our farm is a little help. My loving wife now makes wedding decorations after work and she keeps going past midnight. I have never seen her so tired, exhausted and I’m powerless to change it until the mortgage will be paid off our necks.
Our relatives and friends have helped us as much as they could, but we can’t get out of this rat’s race while the bills are piling up.
We are desperate now and at the same time I am ashamed to ask all of You guys for help, knowing that out there are thousands of people, who needs help much more than we do..
God bless You all.
Hello Everyone, I first want to say that I’ve never asked for financial help from anyone in my life, I’m in a very bad financial position right now and will do anything to take care of my family and keep food on the table.
I’m a Father of a beautiful 3 year old girl named Dayah and I just lost my job last week due to the company closing down, I got 7 days notice and because I was an independent contractor I am unable to collect any unemployment benefits.
I have a few hundred dollars in the bank but need $2,000 per month minimum to pay the mortgage, car insurance, utility bills and food each month.
I’ve brushed up my resume and just began blasting it all over the internet last week, I have not even had one call yet and probably because I’m in a specialized field. I don’t think I’ll be able to find a job for a few months. Before this job I’ve had for 4 years I was unemployed for 5 months. At the time of this post my mortgage is due in 15 days and I have $0 to pay, I’m already getting very scared of not paying the mortgage for 90 days and then my house automatically goes into foreclosure.
Any donations would be deeply appreciated to help my family and I stay above water for the next few months.
Thank you for reading my story.
Ed & Family.
I am a 23 year old female from Birmingham UK. I live with my parents. 25 years ago my parents took out a mortgage for £28,000. That plan came to an end in May 2015. The company now want the full balance of £28,000 which my parents can not pay as they have both been on disability allowance for a number of years due to ill health. Now because of their age and income no one will remortgage for them. And neither is the company increasing the time limit. I am looking for a job so currently I can not remortgage for then either. My brother lost his job and has also been living with us for the past year he has 5 children and is in £15,000 debt. I myself have a £4000 debt. We are looking for work so we can pay these debts off. I request if there is anyone who can help us pay these debts and the mortgage off. All my parents have left is their home please help me save it. I’m not asking for free money I was thinking if I could have a loan to pay all this off then we would just have 1 monthly payment to pay off to whoever helps us. Myself, my brother and my parents would put together our money and pay off the monthly payments. I apologise if this doesn’t make sense I’m just stressed I’ve tried all avenues this is my last hope. Anyone who is willing to help. I will show proof of all our debts to guarantee this isn’t scam. Please someone help us….. Thank you to everyone who took the time for reading this.
I am a self employed small business owner of a construction company. I am the sole provider of a family of 5. My wife and I have three wonderful boys ages 19, 17, and 13. Our home is the only house my boys have ever known. I’ve never needed help before but am now in a situation where I need to pay three mortgage payments to keep my house from foreclosure. My wife is so stressed out and I feel as if I’m letting my family down. I got behind cause my boy had a foot injury and I’ve paid a lot of money to medical bills to get him healed up. On top of that my work truck is in need of a new motor. This really makes it difficult for me to do my jobs as I need my truck to haul materials. It just seems that had a streak of bad luck. I remain positive and continue to get work but just can’t seem to make enough to pull myself out of this situation. The motor for my truck is going to cost me $5,000 and I need $5,000 to catch up my mortgage. I am an honorable prideful person, I would not be asking for help if this wasn’t such a desperate situation. I’ve put 16 years into paying for this house and just can’t imagine losing it. I am willing to make payments with interest to pay this back to anyone that is kind enough to help me out. I would be forever grateful. Thank you very much for your consideration. Chuck Schaefer
I am a 44 year old single mother of 7 year old twin girls – one of whom is autistic. My ex mentally and emotionally abused me for years, and three years ago I left him with the help of the Woman’s Refuge. I lost everything I had because of him, and when I left him I had just over £100 to my name. I’ve slowly built myself up again over the past few years, but now find myself in a very difficult situation.
I have been renting a flat, but they’ve just put the rent up to almost £600/month, the owner has put it on the market, and my lease runs out the end of January 2016. I have a job as a Support Worker, but because I can only work school hours, it is only part time, so I have a very low income – around £450/month. There is no way I can afford to keep renting.
If I can buy a house and get a mortgage – I’m looking at properties under £100,000 – my payments would be less than half of what I’m paying in rent, but because I’m on such a low income, I can’t get a mortgage. I have saved up some money for a deposit, but I don’t have enough to even convince mortgage lenders to look at my situation. I also don’t qualify for Housing Benefit because of the money I’ve managed to save.
The main problem I have, however, is that my one daughter is autistic, and doesn’t cope with change well at all. She was hysterical when I told her we’ll have to move soon – she simply can’t understand or cope with it. We need a place we can call our own, where we can be settled. I can’t keep moving the kids from place to place and school to school, and I really am desperate to buy a house we can call our own.
My hope is to get enough money to be able to have a decent deposit so I can get a mortgage and give my children a stable home. I don’t need luxuries or anything fancy, just a roof over my children’s heads.
Any donation would be greatly appreciated and could potentially be life changing, and keep me and my children from being homeless after Christmas.
Thank you for reading.
I am in desperate need of help. A few years ago our home was burglarized and everything was taken from us. Our guitars, TV’s, purses, shoes, my kids clothes, bills, money, they even took our pictures of our kids and our potholders as well as toothpaste and beat my dog. At that same time in the same 24 hour period my wife had not been feeling well. Her tubes had been tied but her stomach was not feeling good. She almost fainted in the shower…. She was rushed to the hospital to find out that she was pregnant and the baby burst in her tube causing her to bleed. She was hours from dying and so they did emergency surgery but we lost the baby. This year my wife got laid off and our unemployment has run out. I am working at a job that is really low paying and I am trying to find another one but we are not able to make the bills and we are at a negative amount in our bank right now because our mortgage has been taken out and we don’t have any money. Please help with whatever you can. We are desperate for any help and grateful for anything. We have two young children we want to take care of and they are the sweetest kids ever.
God bless you all and please consider anything.

I have $5,500 that I need to pay off to my credit card company ( Chase Sapphire) I am 21 years old and my parents always told me credit score is a important thing, I didnt think I would ever end up in the situation of overusing my credit card and abusing it. I know I am responsible for my actions but if you guys could please help me just one time I would appreciate it. I have learned my lesson I havent touched my credit card in two months. I am also willing to do online jobs for you to make it up.
I’m 25 and live at home in the UK with my dad.
Over the past 18 months my dad has been out of work and caring for my grandparents as my nan suffers with dementia and my grandfather with medical problems.
Within this time I have been paying the household bills as my dad hasn’t had any sort of income, however over the last few months it’s caught up with me and now I’ve got myself into debt my dad doesn’t know this as I don’t want to burden him with another problem while he knows it’s been a struggle for me to manage on my wage and pay the mortgage etc, I know he feels terrible about the situation which is why I’ve offered to help so much and now putting myself out.
However as I have no got myself into debt I haven’t managed to maintain the mortgage payments which could result in us losing our home as we’ve now been summoned with a court order I feel like I have no other option and that even for doing right there is no right done by me. We have no family to be able to help and I have nowhere else to turn, I work for well known company and I feel this situation is starting to effect my work and I can’t risk this happening. Its also effecting my social life and making me incredibly unhappy I feel I’ve got this weight on my shoulders that I’m trying to help everyone and now it’s swallowing me up.
I need £10,000- 15,000 to be able to clear up the bills and clear my debt to get back on track.
I’m preying for a miracle and surely I’m due some luck in my life, I bend over backwards for everyone else and would love for it to be returned one day
We all have moms and we all love our moms but not everyone has the reserve funds to help our moms when they get to sick and can no longer work and earn a living for themselves. Social Security does not provide enough money to put a roof over your head let alone provide for any type of decent retirement. My mom has worked all of her life helping others working as a home health aide helping care for others like herself now that she’ at the point where she needs help and she can’t get any help because of the bureaucratic paperwork and the waiting that’s involved before they will even begin to consider having an in home health aide. My mom does not need to be placed within a care facility where most terminally ill patients are not cared for properly and you see it in the news where some care facility has abused and or neglected patients in their facilities. In June of this year my mom was diagnosed with Stage Four Pancreatic cancer and the doctor I spoke with acted like he could have cared less. When I tried to ask him questions after our initial meeting he began trying to avoid talking with me. I finally had a chance to speak with an oncologist at a private clinic and I thought that my mom would be in good hands. I had taken my mom to the Social Services and applied for Medicaid and I was told that it would take a couple of week to be approved so I returned home to California. My mom had only enough money to pay for two chemo treatments and then she was sent back to the county hospital because it took more than a month for them to approve emergency Medicaid. Now I’m in California and no one will answer my calls back on the east coast and in the meantime my mother is getting worse because she’s getting weaker and not able to cook her meals and my younger brother is trying to do what he can but he doesn’t really know how to communicate with the health and social services. That’s where you come in I asking for donations in order to pay off my mom’s mortgage in the amount of $75,000.00 so that she will no longer have to worry about how or where the money is going to come from for the mortgage. Thank you for your help and bless you
I don’t know how many times I have written this and deleted it again, I’m really not great at putting my thoughts to words, but here goes again! ?
My name is Sean and I am 30 years old. I live with my beautiful wife of 4 years (though we have beven together since we were teens) and our 6 year old son.
My wife and I both have jobs (I actually work 2), but still barely scrape by each month and are constantly in the red..
We are currently living in and have a mortgage of around £97k for a house that we don’t like or love, never have and I don’t think we ever will.
We were forced to buy it in a hurry about 5 years ago after being asked to move out of the house we were renting, as the owner wanted to move back into the property. This happened on the mouth of Christmas and stress levels were through the roof, so I vowed that we’d never be put in that situation again and took the plunge into the housing market…
As mentioned, our heart was never really in the place, but we thought that if we changed a few things and decorated we would grow to like the place, we didn’t and just got ourselves into more debt..
We have now found our dream home, but yeah emphasis on the word dream.. The house is currently for sale with the owner looking a quick sale (think maybe divorce settlement). We just can’t do the quick part as we are currently sitting on negative equity in our current home, plus we would have to sell it 1st and there is no way we could afford to take out a second mortgage in the meantime, let alone gather up the money for a deposit..
If anyone can help, we would be forever grateful..
Hello, everyone! My name is Sergio Ramos, and I’m here to ask everyone reading this to help me with something. I wan’t you to help me buy my first home! Now, this may or may not seem like much, but for me, it’s the biggest endeavor I’ve ever faced, and may face until I have children of my own. See, I lost my father when I was young, 6 years old to be precise. How did I lose him? He was murdered, right in front of me, shot twice less than 10 feet away from me and I got to watch every bloody moment you could imagine would happen. Who did it? My oldest brother, who was suffering from schizophrenia.
It was the night before Thanksgiving in 1989, my family was supposed to go on a family get-a-way the day after. My father, who had just returned from a hunting trip and had brought us food, was sitting at the head of the dinner table waiting to be served by my mother. After my mother brought him his plate, she walked back to the kitchen and gave me the second serving. I then walked eagerly towards my father, but paused just before an opening that was between my father and oldest brother, who just lost control of his schizophrenia and was standing outside in the street with one of my fathers rifles. That’s when he shot my father.
As you can imagine, it was a very chaotic situation. And after being whisked away by a family member headed for safety, I later found out my second oldest brother died from being cut by shattered glass as he was trying to call 911 on the phone that was right next to my father’s dead body. Because of this, I lived a life of confusion battling anxiety, P.T.S.D., and Tourette Syndrome. But after over 20 years, I can say I’ve won the battle. However, the cost of the confusion and chaos that carried with me crippled the beginning of my adulthood. I was lost.
I’m now 32 years old. I’m employed full time in a strong business. I just finished paying off some old debts that built up from losing a job. I have a clean slate, another chance at starting over. But I’m back on to another frying pan. I have to move out, and not by choice. My 77 year old mother, who has been supporting me for all of these years can no longer afford our home due to health and rising costs to a run-down home. We have to get rid of our current place. I have to do something.. I’m now asking you, the readers to show compassion and help me start my life, and hopefully start giving back to the one that carried me throughout my darkest times.
I don’t think I’m asking for much. I’d like to set a goal of $17,000, but I really only need enough for the down payment. With today’s government assistance programs, I should be able to buy something with maybe $7,000 to start. If you could help me in any way, I would greatly appreciate it.
And I appreciate that you’ve read through my story. It was not easy getting to this point in my life. Not for me, nor my mother. Times got dark but we somehow managed to stay afloat. We can finally say we’ve gone through the worst of times. It’s now time to move on. Thank you again for your time. I hope you have a wonderful day! Thank you!
There’s no harm in asking…
I am a hard-working 28 year old single female professional from the South West UK, who, although I am trying and have been trying incredibly hard to save money needed for a deposit on a house it is fast becoming a pipe dream.
Yes, in my younger years I frittered on credit. I have completely changed how I spend, and am encouraging others to do the same and am now successful at budgeting in order to pay debt and save. (No thanks to the banks who keep offering me the thousands upon thousands of pounds of credit – no I don’t want it!) It seems that most of my peers have been able to purchase property due to the generosity of family or friends. Unfortunately I have no one in a financial position to help me in such a way.
I will be debt free by May2016 and my intention was to also have enough money to attempt to get a mortgage as well.
I will have some money, yes. But the way the current climate is changing unfortunately I will need a number more years, which as a woman my age those years are crucial. By that point I was hoping to have different options, such as begin a family etc. Right now I live in shared accommodation with other female professionals in a similar position, with a car that barely functions! I have been with my current employer for 8 years and have moved up the ranks, it is not the best paid job by any means. But I continue to enjoy it and how many people can say that? I volunteer my time with GirlGuiding, and have done for nearly 10 years and I give regularly to aid charities; also I love to go charity shop hopping so I am definitely one for giving back. Please don’t think me too selfish.
I realise that there are much worse hardships in the world than not being able to get on the property ladder and it is almost shameful I am asking strangers to contribute to my personal aims.
However, I’ve seen a lot of success stories and if you don’t ask you don’t get, right?
Any donation to my cause would be so appreciated, I am not relying on the generosity of wealthy strangers, but it would certainly go a long way to helping. I know you have to take a bit of a punt with these pleas, so hopefully I have been frank enough for you to see I’m a genuine girl with a genuine purpose.
Thank you kindly for taking the time to read this and feel free to send me any contribution – it really would be amazing :)
Hi I am looking for help to buy a house. Our landlord will not renew our lease because our family is too big. My wife and I have had 11 kids togather, 9 of which still live with us. My wife has had a chronic illness for 16 years which she suffered thru. She has been hospitalized for on average 3 weeks per year. Plus countless tests and procedures. Last year she had a major surgery to remove her pancreas, gallbladder, duodenum, spleen, and part of her stomach. Then she had a cancer scare which resulted in a surgery to remove her thyroid. She feels a lot better as far as relief from the pain she has lived with but is now on an insulin pump as well as several other medications for life. She has a very poor immune system and is always catching every bug that comes around. Our oldest daughter suffers from this same genetic illness. Now recently this year our 15 year old son has started having seizures. He has had one every couple weeks but had 3 in one 24 hr period last week. We dont know if medication will help him or not. It is very stressfull because he just falls down and has a seizure and has hurt himself many times. With all this going on it has been very dificult. So many doctors appt and tests have costed a lot and required much time off from work. We lost our house after putting all our savings and countless hours of work into repairs and adding rooms to fit us all. We have no savings, no retirement money to use and nothing to sell. Our landlord will not renew the lease on the home we have been renting and we have to be out in September. I have judgements against me for $10,500 for unpaid credit cards used to try to save our house. I cant get a loan without paying that off. And no down payment money. All the stress of uncertainty of housing is keeping my wife from getting better. Its almost impossible to find a rental in our area that we can afford and that will allow a family as large as ours. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hi, my name is Karma and I am in need of some assistance. My husband passed away suddenly February 15, 2015. He was the strongest man I knew. He worked a full time job even while on dialysis for 16 years. My husband eventually lost his legs and his fingers but never gave up. My husband would still be working for his family to this day if he could. We lost him due to a heart attack. I always knew I would loose him eventually but never this soon. Due to the fact that my husband was on dialysis, we couldn’t obtain a large insurance policy and the insurance money went to pay his funeral. We had some money saved but it will soon be depleted. I am asking for any help to pay our morgage so that we do not loose the home we shared together with my husband. Our pay off is 172,000 BUT ANYTHING WILL HELP! Please help us.
I am currently working and am able to pay our other bills, but I will not be able to pay the morgage much longer. Our family is grieving and it will literally kill me to have to let go of a place where I can still hear his laughter, where I still feel him, and where memories were shared.
If you can please find it in your heart to help us I would be so appreciative. I never knew a website like this existed and I am so thankful it does. I am willing to work extra for the money if need be. Please, please, please help us. May GOD bless you all.
The posted picture is one of my husband with one of our little dogs laying in bed.
Hi, My name is Tom, I am 51 years old, married and have a son 16 years of age. I also have 3 step daughters ages 22, 26 and 28. and 5 grandkids from them. In 2004 my wife and I bought the Rural community convenience store which is our home community in south Ms. We worked hard to make it a main stop for everyone. we expanded it to be a one stop for all, Grocery, hot Deli, Hardware, Gardening supply and livestock feed. We had 5 employees working for us. We only cleared around 25k a year but life was good.
Then 2010 The Gulf oil spill happen, With our community most of worked in the Gulf on oil rigs, So that made them to worry about there job. By the end of the year my cash flow in the store had cut to half. By the end of 2011 a major manufacturing company that employed lots of locals closed its doors. So we had to down size our payroll to match the new cash flow which had drop even more. In 2012 my wife and I decided we would run it all our self and get through the tough times. We where making ends meet but just barely getting by. We took a second loan out on our home just to keep the store open for the community because it is 10 miles to the closest grocery store. Then at the end of 2012 we got the word that the sawmill in our community is shutting down. We just gritted our teeth and said we will make it though somehow its just a temporary set back. We operated on borrowed money. Then last July I fell out on the floor, my son found me and call a ambulance. I had lost 12 units of blood in a upper gi bleed, A blood vessel rupture caused from stress and high blood pressure. Being over $200K in depth now got to me.
Thanks to my wife and son for getting us through 2014.
Now it 2015 and I need to relax a little. But with paying notes 3 loans made over the last 3 years makes it imposable. We fixing to loose our home, I tried my best to keep it all going.
I prayed over and over for guidance in this. Never new about this site till today. Maybe this is the answers to my blessing.
Thank You, And God bless you.
Hello, I am sad to be in the situation to have to ask for help, but I am in need of help. I am behind on my mortgage payment by one month and property taxes 1 year and 4 months. I am receiving letters from lawyers about the property taxes. I need $1,600. To catch up on the house payment, and $5,600. to catch up on the taxes. I have lost my full time job in September this past fall, and still have my part time job, but it is not enough to help much. My husband is working out of town due to better pay, but we are behind in such a way that it is becoming increasingly hard to dig out of the hole. I am caring for 2 grandsons, while my daughter finishes with school and certifications. I’m also behind on my student loans and they are on deferment til March 1 (if you feel led to help with the student loan debt, I am behind by $1,500.). If you could see it in your heart to help with these needs in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. There have been a series of occurrences that have contributed to this problem, including the last full time job I had did not pay well, and over the past two years, things were slowly sliding downhill. After the loss of my full time job, I was in a depression and had severe anxiety and was unable to work and unable to afford medicine due to no insurance. I am looking for a full time job, but have not had any luck yet. Email to help:
Thank you for taking the time to read my request.
I would say I am an average person struggling to get on the property ladder. I can easily pay the mortgage payments but due to renting can’t seem to save up enough money for a deposit. I’m still short for my deposit and fees even on a housing scheme. I am single, 28 and work full time. I am already doing any cash in hand work that comes my way to help. I have £4800 savings but need another £3000 to get my mortgage. I’ve gone through a mortgage advisor who has confirmed my repayments would be easily affordable with my current salary.
I, like most people, don’t like the fact that I have to ask people for money so would like to borrow the money without it affecting my mortgage offer. I could afford to pay back £200 a month, every month until the money is repaid.
Im just a normal person, with normal ambitions and hope someone still has faith and sees the good in people. For my own pride, I will stick to my word that I will repay!
Thank you again for your time.
Hi, thank you for taking the time to read my plea for help, i know lots of people need help like i do there is only so much money to make the world go round. Some people are born into wealth and others fight to survive. I understand there are people worse off than me so im ashamed to be asking for help but i feel like its the only way to live a happy life.
I live in England and was born and raised here. I’ve travelled abroad once as a baby to Majorca with my mum and dad before my brothers were born.
I’m 23 and employed full time but on a low income but getting the funds together for a deposit on a house seems near impossible. Although i would like to move in to my own place before i reach 30.
I live with my parents and two younger brothers and all three of us have been told its time for us to move out. My dad moved out at the age of 19 so he feels that we should have done the same.
Unfortunately a council house seems like the only way forward but even this seems like a long way off and i would much rather have something to show for and pass on to future generations to secure their future.
I have a long term girlfriend of three and a half years but i cant even think about building a future with her until i can provide for myself. I love this girl to the moon and back and want to keep her by my side.
I don’t want to be a burden on my parents anymore so any donation will be a reason to smile and i hope that one day i am in the position to do the same.
Thank you for your consideration.
My husband Doug is the hardest working man I have ever know. He gives everything and takes hardly anything. He asks for nothing. He is a 52 year old man who has been working non stop for the past 40 years. Financial hard times and debt have made it near impossible for him to be able to purchase a home where he can soon retire and really enjoy his life.
Doug has been working since he was 15. He is a very hard working, loving and giving individual. He has been giving to others his whole life. He never asks anyone for anything and even as that is, he doesn’t always get the help or respect that he deserves. He has 7 children of whom 4 are grown. He has been raising children since the age of 19. He loves his children but they are not financially able to help him with the money he needs to place a down payment on the home he wants to retire in. He has lived in the home for over 3 years and loves the property. Right now he is in a written contract with the landowner who wants the property in dougs name. Doug has tried many different organizations to get help to purchase the home and land but to no avail. Please, open your hearts to this man. HE has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known.
Hello. My name is Diana. I am 56, single & a foster carer of an intellectually disabled 20 year old girl who a most horrendous upbringing.
We have been together for 5 happy years now!
Recently we pooled our money for a deposit & bought a dual occupancy dwelling.
At the moment we can manage the mortgage but due to impending govt cuts our payments will soon be reduced which will make it very difficult to cope & I am afraid we may have to sell.
In the event of my death my daughter will receive my estate & life insurance payment which will cover the $250,000 mortgage. I want her to have this security.
Unfortunately due to her medical issues I cannot get life insurance for her which worries a lot as there is a real chance her condition could cause a fatal incident.
She has no assets & I would be stuck with the mortgage and no carer income! This worries me a great deal and I think about it day and night.
Being mortgage free would be such a blessing for us both; no money worries & security for both our futures.
After having worked hard all my life as a registered nurse, giving & caring for others, it would be so nice to have this burden lifted from me.
On behalf of my foster daughter, I would be ever so grateful. Thank you for your time.
The years 2013 and 2014 were not great years. I was doing very well in 2012 and then the market went down, people lost their jobs, and my home business crashed because I was relying on those clients to pay my expenses. In October of 2014, I also lost my job at a University working there for 20 years. They decided they didn’t need me anymore and I was left with one month’s severance pay and no job. Now we are in January 2015, I finally got a job, but at a 1/4 of the pay I was making. I desperately want to keep my home on the land that my father gave me. It breaks my heart that so many terrible things happened in a matter of only 2 years. I am requesting please that you assist me in helping to pay off my mortgage. The current balance is $133,000 through Citi mortgage. I am current to date only because I used all the money in my retirement to stay afloat while trying to find a job. I cannot pay January bill because I just started my job and my first paycheck will be only $600 if that, and my mortgage payment is $1421.13 per month. I have tried everything to make the additional money, including trying to sell some of my things. Nothing is selling. I also have an additional $60,000 in debt leftover from my home business that I will need to pay within the next 30 days otherwise they are going to sue me (I could include copies of those as well if you wish). Honestly, I am at my wits end. I have no other place to turn to. I am an honest hard working woman who has been through so much. I have only this week (the week of January 26, 2015) to pay. I just want a second chance in life to get on my feet again and not worry. Please say you will help me. I would be eternally grateful. Thank you kindly.
Hello. After 20+ years in the automotive industry, it’s not the stable place that it used to be. Been out of work twice in the last 5 years, but this time, it’s worse. My night job doesn’t pay enough and we’re still trying to pay off the credit card bills we used to stay afloat from the last time, and this time, the house is at risk. We bought the house for the kids, so they could come back to it and share their memories when they had kids of their own, and to leave it to them as an inheritance. I’ve got no family to ask for help from, and the wife’s family has done so much already, and I do need to pay them back when I find another job, in a more stable industry, but it’s not easy to move to a different industry when the interviewers start out with, “Well, you seem to have a very strong background in the automotive industry. Why do you want to leave it?”. The other thing that’s hard to hear is “You’re overqualified for the position you’re applying for. Why do you want to start at an entry level position?”. When you try to leave one industry for another, can you really expect to start at the top…? It doesn’t seem to matter that I have skill sets that can be applied to a number of different industries. Sometimes, it seems like we’re branded with a Scarlet Letter because of the industry and the publicity it got a few years ago, with going to the government for a handout when none of the Big Three really needed to. Ok, sorry about the rant… I need to find a second job, hold onto my house, and be able to sleep again, without the stress of worrying about losing the house. My wife knows that I’m stressed out, but has no idea that I cry every night, feeling like I’ve let her and the kids down. Anything you can give would be vastly appreciated. Thank you.
I am looking to pay off my house. I am asking everyone reading this to send one dollar. I am trying to raise enough money to pay all my debts and to get my famliy in better shape for the future. I am self employed. Not doing too good lately. Car problems,health stuff, you know life! Well I am looking to get all my ducks in a row so I can work part time while doing what I do best. That is helping other people. Half of all the money I receive will be donated to others that need a helping hand. I personally know people who have next to nothing and work their butts off just to keep it! I have always been taught to help anyone in need. My wife’s parents have both passed away. We have moved her 94 year old grandmother into our home. She is so grateful. We have refinanced around three or four times. We now have a balloon payment of 68000 dollars due in twenty years. Where is that going to come from? We also have custody of our three year old grand daughter. It is like starting all over again. We were ready to start enjoying each others company when that bomb was dropped on us. It is however keeping us young. I want to do more helping others and less worrying about myself. Paying off my home and debt will allow me to work part time and spend more time making a difference in other peoples lives. I have no retirement or life insurance. Please give a dollar and in courage others to do the same.
We are a young family with a 1 year old son. Due to unexpected situations, we are being evicted from our house.
I worked with the family business that was struggling. During that time, I was not paid in order to help the business succeed, unfortunately, the business failed and now we are about to lose the house. Currently I am unemployed but am doing whatever I can to find a job, even a job that will pay little, just so I can provide for my family. My partner is a stay at home mom as we can’t afford any help to look after our son
We are hoping that we can get some help to keep the house so my son doesn’t become homeless. He is a good kid and all we want is for a roof over his head.
We are only asking for the amount needed to keep our house, not more.
As a man, I find it hard to ask for help, but when it comes to my son, all I want is a good life for him.
Please help. We need $12,000 to keep our home. All we can offer in return is our thanks, gratitude and keep you in our prayers.
Thanks for your time
I need 100,000 dollars to pay off my mortgage. This will allow me to retire in my house with a sense of security knowing that I will have a place to live. I have worked hard all my life and tried to do the right things to be successful. When the economy tanked I lost my job,a good union job that was moved to Warez Mexico. I found work again at a much lower wage and have been struggling for the last five years.I helped my mother as much as I could as she slowly died at a early age from Alzheimer’s. I am Bipolar and have had two manic episodes that resulted in hospitalizations. I am without Insurance and can’t afford medication or psychiatrist help. I do all I can to remain stable and avoid a manic episode,plenty of sleep,avoid stress and stay engaged with family. I am holding down a full time job and the stress is unbearable. I have a cat her name is Tyra, she has been with me for the past eight years through thick and thin . My house has been her home since she was a baby,this has been her home and my home. I don’t want to lose my baby and my house when I retire, please help me.
Hi there I’m the wife of an awesome husband with 2 toddlers, our deaf mum who we care for, a great guard dog with his two cat buddies. We live on one income here in New Zealand and the reason being is my husband really wants to me to stay home and full time care for our little ones till they start school as oppose to just sticking them into child care. Those years you can’t ever get back and we’ve made a huge sacrifice to do it. What i really want is to be able to retire my husband early so that we can get what we can’t back later in life and that’s time. In my family it’s being a cycle of poverty for years. Breaking the chains of old habits that have been passed down through generations has been hard but I think we’ve done really well considering. We are debt free, live by the cash only rule, have no credit cards or loans and have taught ourselves how to be financial responsible. With that I’ve tryed for ages to be entrepreneur from home. I’ve attempted doing Banoffee Desserts from home but after doing them for a while realised I needed more fridge space to hold orders then food safety certificates etc, our council don’t make it easy to sell food from home, I then tryed direct marketing from home on the internet and little bits come in but unless your completely consumed with people in hours and hours of time you never really get far, i then attempted Let it Shine lawn mowing and domestic cleaning from home where our services where offered and you gift what you can to pay for the job. Well lawn mower was consistantly breaking down, and people weren’t always paying and profit was going on servicing and petrol to jobs so that stopped. Then i tryed doing “The Poop Fairies” they poop we scoop. Basically low investment for tools and just going around home and cleaning dog poop regularly. Building up a clientelle has been long and arduous and getting to places has been a mission. So in short I’ve, we’ve been trying. I came across this site and thought what the heck I may as well try. We’re a really good family, are financially responsible but just really want a break and if someone on here sees this and feels like they connect with us we would be absolutely thankful and blessed. The main thing for us is having our own mortgage free home that way my husband would be able to reduce hours and be more involved with our children. Time I believe is one of the most undervalued things we consider, but once it’s gone, it’s gone.
We’d really love to hear from anyone that would like to help us pay off the remainder of our current mortgage which is an estimated $280,000. This would make a world of difference for us and our family the generations after and would allow us the freedom to break the cycle that’s been passed down for years through our family and help us create a more positive future for our children and theirs after.
I also have a website I created and no money would need to be passed through to us if you were not comfortable. It could be passed on straight to our bank that way everything is completely transparent.
Thank you so much for reading this and I know some may not see it as needy as others requests on here but in the bigger picture it will be helping to accomplish so much for going forward in the years to come.
I am here asking for money to make life less stressful each month when trying to pay our bills. Both my husband and I have worked full time until a little over a year ago. My health started getting from bad to worse. I have had Type 1 diabetes ever since I was a child at 10 years old. I am now 50 and things just aren’t working well anymore. I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis which I used to get by with and now I struggle getting around. Along with those I have Chronic Asthma that will never go away and I feel like I am allergic to almost everything.
Now I am currently having vision problems. I have had retina detachment in my left eye and they did surgery on it and I can see now but not very well. Then the right eye did the same thing. I had same Vitrectomy surgery and it didn’t help. I can’t see out of it at all.
So I have been unable to work for over a year now. My husband is working so much I never see him and doesn’t make much money. We barely get by. So my idea was to see if I could muster up some help for a down payment on a house. If we were in our own home the payments would be cheaper if we had a pretty good size down on it. We are renting now and it’s just not going anywhere but in the home-owners pocket.
I just want to help my husband not work away his health by keeping a roof over our heads. Eventually I won’t even be able to hen peck typing this message.
A bunch of donations can go a long way. Please help.

Hello, my name is Catherine. I’m a divorced mum of 2, I work part time as a teaching assistant. I can only work part time as I have no childcare help. I also care for my parents who are getting older. I had to sell my house as part of my divorce and have been renting since. I like the house we are renting but it never feels like our home, we know that any moment our landlord could ask us to move out and we would have to pack up again. There is no way we could buy this house or any other house on my wages. I get working tax credit and housing benefit to help pay rent and bills but what we really want is a home if our own, somewhere we can decorate (we can’t decorate the rented house), somewhere we can be settled without the threat of having to be moved on again. My children have been through enough, we have moved three times, been through a divorce, then I managed to get involved with a violent man for a few years. I pulled myself out of that relationship and for the past 3 years it’s been just the three of us which is great. Any money donated would be saved towards our own home. Thank you for your help.
I’m including a photo of my husband’s scar. He has had it since July when he was rushed into the hospital for surgery after being diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. The surgeon removed a ping pong ball size tumor from his colon and took out his gall bladder due to gall stones. In September he started chemo and there are six rounds left to go. He is not permitted to work during this time. Since the summer we have survived on our savings. Kelly is a mechanic who owns his own shop and we run it together without any outside help. Right now, we can not pay our house payment for the month of December. His disability check is coming in January and it will pay our mortgage with a hundred dollars left over. We have two children and we’ve been married for sixteen years. We’re looking for someone to pay December’s house payment so
we don’t wind up homeless. Thank you. We need $1500. Our house payment has never been late and we hope to stay in good standing.
We are grandparents, retired but raising two girls, one 11 the other 14. Our daughter was killed by a hit and run driver 10 1/2 years ago leaving us the girls to raise. The driver has never been caught. We made too much money to qualify for state aid and since our daughter did not work long enough to qualify for Social Security Survivors Benefits, she also did not have any life insurance. We have managed to get by, until this year. In January of our granddaughter developed a two and one half tumor that needed to be removed. We had to pay over $2400.00 as our cost share. Then in March my wife developed a severe kidney infection that required her to be hospitalized and added another $800.00 to our cost share. Then in October I took a fall, striking my head. This lead to a discovery of growths in my throat that required surgery to remove them. Then, unknown to us and even our medical care givers the fall caused a slow bleed on my brain. I usually work a part time job but due to my m medical condition I could not work this part time job. We have fallen behind in our bills to include our mortgage. I estimate I lost about $5,000.00 in wages. We are only needing to get caught and if we could get between $3500.00 and $4,000.00 that would get us back on an e v England keel but any help would be greatly appreciated.
