If I am going to be honest I am not homeless and starving. I am healthy and shouldn’t complain. If I’m being honest I do need 2500. Why? Well I am that much behind on my rent and utilities. Why is that well if I’m going to be honest a year ago I left my husband. We had all the nice things and I walke
I lost two jobs due to Covid so times are tough.
But if I’m being honest I am glad my life has gone the way it has I now take time to appreciate what’s right in front of me which for some reason I was so blind to see before. Things like the beauty of outside. The stars the moon!
Thanks for reading. I hope your week is wonderful
Hello my name is Karen and on June 10th I unfortunately broke my tibia. The break was bad enough to require surgery to place two plates and 12 screws.
When I was released from the hospital I was sent to a rehab facility for approximately 2 weeks.
I returned home but a few days later I was taken to the ER for severe pain. While there I was checked for blood clots which lucky there was none but I did have a mild infection.
With all this said I am unable to work while after 6 weeks of non weight-bearing I am able to stand on my leg. I am a long way away from getting back to normal.
I am now here begging for help to pay my medical bills and living expenses. Any help with would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read my plea for help.
I recently had to uproot my life and move to Tennessee due to a very bad break up. My ex started doing drugs cheating and who knows what else!! He blew my engine and clutch in a car that I had recently bought from a friend (which I am still paying for) I had only driven her once! So needless to say I had to have her towed down here new engine and clutch put in it! I’m trying my best to get my life together get out of debt and just find a way to finally be happy again!!! Right now just with my car alone I’m over $20,000 in debt my credit cards are maxed!! I’m staying with my sister and her family and I love them but it is a very stressful situation. Before all of this covid crap I was a bartender so I was one of the first people laid off of work I’m looking for work here hopefully I will find something soon!!!I’m supposed to be taking a few different medications everyday but with the move and no job well that brings the no insurance so I can’t afford to go to the doctors! Life is not supposed to be easy I get that but it feels like I’ve never been given a break!!
Hello,my name is Jewett Scott. I have fallen into the most desperate times.I don’t think 2020 has been kind to anyone. Within the last 3 years i have lost my mother and 3 loved feline pets. I escaped from a mentally abusive relationship into another relationship that wasn’t abusive but the strains of bills and rent took a major toll on it and has caused a rift that is throwing me into homelessness. I’m in the process of obtaining a I.T. certification and should be done near the end of October. In the meantime, the constant worry of homelessness is truly frightening. I currently receive social security. which my health condition caused me to have a very spotty employment history with long gaps of unemployment. The waiting list for subsidized housing is backed up for 2 years. I feel completely alone in this, i feel nobody has my back. I feel like i’m letting my kids down. This shouldn’t happen to me, i truly don’t deserve it. I am kind and considerate, no criminal record, no anger issues, i want everyone to like me and i always treat people how i want to be treated. If there is a homeless man or peddler with a sign at a corner, if i have money best bet id give. and if i don’t then ill give them a sandwich or soda from my lunch. Some people use the excuse so they don’t have to help is that these people might be faking or that they will just buy booze or drugs. If i could only get someone to take a chance on me, help me or even guide me. I know that sounds farfetched to ask or expect,especially this day in age. Any assistance from someone would be looked upon as angelic or divine because i’d truly feel that it would have to be god that sent them. Facing the break up with my fiancee, homelessness and not having a car has put me in a very dark place. I have no family to help and i feel utterly distraught. I really really loved her,it was a love at first sight scenario. She gave me the strength to leave the mentally abusive relationship, i do owe her that. Although i had the belief that love should be stronger than “money” because i would have never made that a factor in the existence of our relationship. So to anyone reading this, any help, pointers or guidance to gainful employment and obtaining a home would be godly. thank you.
I think my goal is to raise 40,000 and also get a guide for my husband. It would give me a new start. Here I will tell you a small part of my life.
My husband has always been a good man and was a good provider. He had a stroke in 2012 And he became legally blind as well. He was about 54 years old. This of course made him unable to work instantly. At that time we had about 20,000 in savings. His job ceased immedtialty. At the time this happen to my family, I worked part-time and went to collage. My daughter was on her way to collage.
It took I believe 2 years before I was able to get DISABILTY for my husband approved. In the mean time I was loosing everything savings, house,cars my whole life. I was just trying to keep it together for my family.
My life as I knew it was now over!!! I was so lucky to get my daughter off to college.
At that time I was 2 mos shy of my bachealor degree in social services. I did accomplish that goal. My husband had been helping me to achieve this goal before he became ill.
After a couple of months the presuure just became unbearable. I suddenly went into a depression mode. I finsished school while being a mom and working and running back and worth to the hospitals and getting my daughter colleage ready.
I was not however able to hold on to my life as I knew it. I had to take care of my husband. I think I lost myself. I gave it my every thing. I just went into shock …I guesss. I have been working myself to to the ground. Never the less I am still alive!!
Most people would have probally left their spouse but this is not an option for me. He was always there me. I plan to be there for him.
I feel I am ready for a break. I hate to ask because it is not in my nature but something lead me to this page. Maybe the holly sprit. I don’t know.
I am currently living in a tiny room in my parents house. This is something I am not use to. I hate it. I feel weak. I am employed. I work alot for little money..I am a counselor for state of Fl. A state employee.
I just want my own place again. I know 40,00 would just help me at least get a jump start..I want my husband to have peace. I want him to regain his porpose. i want to regain my purpose.I feel I have been down a long time. I have been down a lot longer than I expected.
It’s time to ask someone out there for help. This is something I am not really good at asking for. I am asking myself can a stranger really help me?
It’s been really hard to tell my family story ..
Will someone pick my story. Will someone out there hear my prayer..Is anyone listening? I think a need a guardain angel.
I suppose I will begin with my teeth and the horrible state they are in.
When I was much younger, around 14, per my parents I got braces. I followed the Orthodontists instructions the best I could. I went through many months of severe headaches and pain. There were times when I would yawn and it would pop one of the brackets. The problem ended up being that they didn’t account for the growing in of my wisdom teeth. They ended up growing in impacted, but not until after I removed the braces. That is correct, “I” removed them, since no one would listen to me about how much pain I was actually in. Over the years, not having dental insurance nor the money to get anything done, the wisdom teeth coming in impacted just messed everything up. Now, at 41 years old, the wisdom teeth are, mostly, gone, along with several other teeth that were near them. Three of my teeth at the front have broken as well. This was due to the glue/cement from the braces that remained on my teeth for many years. At this point, I would need to have everything remaining pulled, and either full dentures or implants. I have seen full implants, upper and lower, for as low as $2500 each. Those plus the extractions would run about $6000. A full sent of dentures plus extractions would run near to $4000. They only cost these amounts because the services rendered are through “non-insurance compliant companies”, meaning they don’t accept any dental insurance.
Now, my debt and my stupidity. I got my first credit card when I was 19 years old, and due to my lack of financial knowledge, I maxed it fairly quickly. Not thinking clearly about it, I applied for another and was approved. I swore that I would use it for emergencies only and work on paying the first one off. Well, that didn’t happen as I maxed the second one as well. I made strides to pay them off, but I was still spending more than I was making. So, I applied for a better paying job, which I managed to get. The limits on the credit cards were increased, by a large amount, due to my great pay increase. I did my best to get them paid off this time, and somehow managed to max both of them again. Applied for a third credit card and was approved for a limit I had no business having. Yup, I maxed it soon after as well. After a few years, and several credit cards and lines of credit with online retailers, I finally broke down and took out a debt consolidation loan. But, I had to get a co-signer in order to qualify. It took me about 5 years to pay it off completely. I decided that if I couldn’t save the cash for what I wanted, I didn’t actually want it. My credit card days were done with…for awhile.
Fast forward to 7 years ago, I needed some work done to my car and there was no way I would be able to save up what I needed in time. So, I applied for a credit card, and was approved. The limit was short of what I needed, so I applied for yet another an was approved. Not long after getting them, they were maxed.
Anyone seeing a pattern yet?
Throughout the past few years I have obtained more credit cards and they are all near maxed, I keep throwing a little extra at each one, but it’s not chipping away as fast as I would like. Another consolidation loan won’t work this time as I no longer have a co-signer. If I were given the opportunity to pay off my balances, I know I could maintain them. I have a plan written out, but I need them at $0 balance in order for it to work properly. I currently have seven credit cards with balances that add up to about $7000
Between the teeth and the credit debt, I would be asking for, $12,000. To have a chance to smile again and a reason to smile. That said, I would prioritize the dental over the debt. If I could raise the $6000 needed to get the implants so that I don’t have to deal with dentures, that would be amazing.
I have added a photo of my teeth, which is something that I haven’t shown to anyone before…it’s extremely embarrassing and I am ashamed that I let them get as bad as they are.
This pandemic has been hard on millions of people worldwide. Even though our normal way of living is slowing opening back up there are still people that are facing financial hardship. I am a mother of 2 that is still unable to get over the backlash this virus has done to our country. I am willingly and available to return to work but do to the lack of childcare I am unable to return. While businesses are slowly Returning to normal I am unable to partake in this advantage due to my childcare provider remaining closed due to COVID 19. Without this support I have declined employment with my provider due to the lack of childcare. Even though this decision helps the well being of my children it has caused a serious hardship financially. My children are not of age to look after there selves and a request for any possible donation is needed. Any amount is greatly appreciated. God bless all that have given to families in need like me and I hope your great deeds never go unnoticed. Thank u in advance.
I’ve never done this before, i don’t really know where to start. I realise that asking for money from people can be pretty frowned upon, and there is always people a lot worse off than you. So thank you to anyone reading this, whether you decide to help or not.
I met my wife 5 years ago, and she immigrated from Canada to be with me. We had a plan to build a life together, and instead we’ve only managed to get in to more and more debt and i can no longer see a way out that will see us actually starting out and building something. It’s an endless cycle. Immigration fees, credit cards that i got, thinking they’d help us out, instead of burying us deeper.
We have no possessions, i work two jobs, she works one, both “frontline workers” in the health service, which sounds fancy and amounts to minimum wage and struggles. If we could find someone kind enough to help pay off our debts so we could make an actual start of things together, we’re both in our 30’s and even if we did make it out we’d be too old by then to build anything together.
I don’t know what else to do, she’s such a wonderful person and tries so so hard, never gets upset with our situation and is the most loving, caring person i’ve ever met. She deserves better than what i can currently give her. But if we could start fresh without any pressures, and an actual way out… well i have to try anything i can. Which includes, begging for help.
I know likely most people on here will be in much more need than us. But debt is just leading to more debt and any way out of that spiral i need to try.
Your help will literally change our lives, pull us out of a whole that i cannot see ending.
Thank you so much for reading, whether you decide to give or not. I really mean that.
(The picture of our wee dog is posted because i didn’t really know what to put as a picture, sorry)
Thank you for considering my cause! I am currently an EMT based out of the Northeast, working through the Covid-19 pandemic. I am attempting to put myself through paramedic school, as well as various other certification courses, in order to begin my goal of traveling to undeveloped countries, and provide medical and humanitarian aid.
The programs that provide this assistance to less fortunate places are in high demand for qualified medical personnel. I have always had the dream and goal to be able to make a difference, both in the people around me, and those that are less fortunate.
The cost for the training and travel can be quite expensive. An EMT salary is quite low, and requires me to work long hours in order to make ends meet. Additionally, that means less time for school, studying, and planning.
Any financial assistance would go a very long way in helping put me through school, additional training, and travel expenses such as plane tickets, housing, uniforms and equipment.
My ultimate goal would be to raise $40,000 ($10,000 for school, $10,000 for additional training and certifications, and $20,000 for related travel and housing).
Thank you for your time and consideration!

As you are reading my story, please understand that I am not here because I messed up my life or because of unfortunate circumstances. I have worked extremely hard throughout my entire life to not be a victim of circumstance. I am simply hoping that you might remember how demanding life was for you in your early-twenties and that you might feel compelled to help me along in my journey.
At the age of 17 I was accepted into the college and program of my dreams, unfortunately I had no way to pay for it. I worked 2 – 3 jobs throughout my time in college, working overnight shifts, going to class, and sleeping in the afternoons. It was extremely challenging and forced me to become extremely good at managing my time. I was able to put myself through school, graduate in 3 years (at the age of 21) and begin my dream job in a promising career within 2 months of graduation.
I started working on February 13, 2020. As you already know about 30 days later, COVID-19 hit an shut down the world. Luckily, I am considered an essential worker and have been able to continue working throughout this time. Unfortunately, working full-time, plus overtime when it was offered, was still not enough for the bills that were piling up.
I will be straightforward and honest about why exactly I am here. I have ~ $2,700 in credit card debt as my bills had to be paid regardless of where the money came from. This is of course in addition to the ~ $12,000 of student loans I have remaining as I was responsible and have been paying on my original $25,000+ balance from the moment I began college. I have excellent credit and have not missed a payment because I understand the obligation and responsibility I have to pay that money back.
I will breakdown why this has been so difficult:
I get paid bi-weekly at $1,060. My rent is $925 and I do not have roommates as I live in a rural, not extremely welcoming community where I do not know a soul. My car payment is $315. I pay $200 every other week as I am pursuing my masters degree to fast-track my career in public service. My utilities fluctuate around $100 a month including internet, electricity, etc. I pay ~ $300 a month towards my student loan as I am technically 6 months out of college, but I am also still actively enrolled as a student so I am not penalized if I don’t pay. As we all know, interest is astronomical and will accumulate faster than I will be able to pay it off if I wait. I pay my own insurance (car, renters, healthcare, dental, and vision). I pay above my “minimum payment” for my credit card every month, again trying to reduce the amount of interest I will pay over time. I put money into retirement from every paycheck (have to take advantage of employer match right?) and I have done all of this entirely on my own.
Did I mention I am barely 22 years old? Yes, I work hard. Yes, I make the most responsible decisions I am capable of making. No, I do not drink/party/etc.
I’m trying and I simply need someone, anyone to resonate with my story and help to ease some of my financial stress. I am not sitting at home waiting for someone to fix my problems. I am actively going out and working hard every day to help myself. I know I will be OK, regardless of whether or not anyone ever reads this. I also know that all it will take is one person who is more well off than me to remember what it was like when they were just starting out, and to help push me along in my goals.
I want to buy a house, I want to be able to move to my dream city (North-western Montana), I want to build my savings. I don’t need a million dollars. I don’t even need $100,000. I want to earn that kind of money on my own. All I need is some help with my > $20,000 in student loans, car loans, & general debt.
$10 would help to buy groceries on my strict budget, $50 would pay my internet bill for a month, $115 would pay my car insurance for a month, $200 would pay my tuition for two weeks, $315 would pay my car payment for one month, $500 would pay all of my bills other than rent for a month, $1,000 would pay my rent for one month, $1,500 would pay every bill I have for one month, $2,500 would almost entirely pay off my credit card, $5,000 would pay off my credit card and give me the opportunity to build my savings back up, and $10,000 would change my life.
Anything helps, and every bit of help means more than you could ever know.
Dear Second Chance,
Thank you for taking the time to read this email. I know you do not know me and your time is precious. My wife and I are from Torrance, CA, and we are acquainted with your philanthropy and it is truly a blessing.
I know this is a long shot in asking, but we are in need of financial assistance. My wife and I both have excellent steady employment, she is a nurse case manager in the ER and I am a surgical technician in the Surgery. We both are dedicated health care professionals despite the current epidemic we now face everyday. Yes we both do make good incomes, however due to some health challenges a few years ago(my wife having a total shoulder (3 surgeries in total and was out of work for 2 1/2 years and I during this time also having lost my job) and it in turn affected our finances and credit. We became burdened with bills and debts and had to foreclose on our town house condominium.
At present, we are renting a nice townhouse in Torrance and are keeping prayerful that God can put someone in our path way, and give us a Second Chance and new start, whereby are debts are paid(current debts are $300,000 which include school loans and federal and state taxes); and a good down payment to purchase the townhouse we currently rent($200,000) or the money to buy the townhouse(approximately $800,000). All proper documents will be provided as requested.
We have had trouble renting a home or qualifying for a mortgage loan due to our credit situation and planned to withdraw our retirement money to pay off the bills to better our opportunity, but our plan will not allow us unless it meets a certain hardship withdrawal criteria which in this case it does not meet. We have tried all options, but to no availability.
I am boldly coming to you and asking for your help and assistance, to please help us with a SECOND CHANCE OF HAVING A CLEAN SLATE coming true.
I know you don’t know us at all. We are good citizens and a God fearing couple, married for 26 years and of good character. We are active members at our Church, in Carson, Ca.
We are just asking sincerely for a Fresh start in these uncertain times. We ask the Lord for an open mind and understanding in our situation. Whatever the Lord put’s on your heart to help us, we will humbly receive it with grateful hearts and appreciate your kindness and understanding and hopefully be able to pay this blessing forward and do the same in any way we can. We hope to hear from you soon. I pray that the Lord continue to bless you in many beautiful ways, in Jesus Name.
I am doing this fundraiser for my mother.
The donation that we would receive would be used to help support my mother after the loss of her livelihood. 2 years ago she was taking care of her father with dementia while running her own day caring business from home. With 2 full-time jobs, 1 with managing a daycare and the other taking care of her father full time is a lot for one person to do. After the passing of her father, within a year she lost the business of 15+ years, her father, her at the time boyfriend and the kid she helped raise from the age of a toddler from separation. The only kid she has is Raymond(22) who needed to drop out of college to help my mother take care of my grandpa and help around with what is needed. The will that was in place stated everything to be sold then mainly split between her and the brother do to the money it became a legal battle. Since the passing, Kathy has been living with friends and family unable to find a place to call her own. With bills also being a factor from medical do to diabetes/ arthritis with other monthly’s expensive
Some of the health complications she has had over the years have been. Surgery for a football-sized hernia. The mesh was 1 foot by 6 inches. She is currently in recovery still. With the current COVID-19, it would be hard for her to get a safe job during the time currently.
This fundraiser is to help get a place for my mom while hoping to show generosity to the people that allowed my mother to be at their homes.
I am working full-time and doing college at the same time to pay bills for my family while getting an education. Personally unaware of what else to do. Asking the generosity of others in any form, from sharing, to donation for help in the time of need
This page will be used to help pay for bills, a place to live, medical bills, and show gratitude to others that allowed a place for my mother to live
I am out of options for my mother please share any way . I have been stressed with working full time, college and trying to make sure my mom has a place. I nees help from the community in any way
My story began last year in 2019. My mother became ill with breast cancer and, at the time, I was living in another city, about 120 miles from her. I had bought my own little house, that had a fenced in backyard and lived there with my two small dogs. I am the youngest in a family of five children, but for one reason or another, my siblings could not take care of her, so I sold my home and moved back to my hometown to live with my mom and take care of her. At the same time, the youngest of my three older sisters became ill. We did not know what was wrong with her and she was first diagnosed with lupus, however, she kept getting worse and worse, and she was having symptoms that were not lupus related. It was then, we found that she had ovarian cancer. It was stage IV. She lasted three more weeks, then passed away in January, 2020. In the first part of May, 2020, my mother got the coronavirus and, because her immune system was compromised, she became deathly ill. I was quarantined with her until she got so bad I could not care for her any longer and I took her to the hospital. I did this as a last resort, because I knew that people who went to the hospital, often, did not come home. She was given all kinds of medication, but, eventually, she had to be put on a ventilator and she passed away at the end of May. I had been living with her and we had been dividing the house payment and utilities.
When she died, we had to put her house up for sale to pay debts that she had and to pay for her funeral expenses. That meant I no longer had any place to live. My brothers and sisters either are in bad situations or do not have room for me to move in with them. One is in an abusive situation, one does not have any extra room in their house and one is in an assisted living facility. I found a place for rent, but I have been trying to pay $1000/month, because I couldn’t find another place that allowed me to have my dog, which I am trying to get recognized as an emotional assistance animal. You see, I am bipolar with extreme anxiety, and I need my little dog to keep me calm. My dog is a miniature longhair dachshund, whom I adore. In my life, I have been hospitalized multiple times for depression, anxiety and suicidal attempts. I don’t like to share that part of my life, but desperate times call for desperate measures. I didn’t think life was supposed to be this hard or this cruel. I am Jewish and I have a life insurance policy, but I cannot take my life. That is against everything I stand for as a Jew, but to be honest, I am worth more dead than alive.
In June of this year (2020), I lost my job due to Covid-19. I used to be a bartender and made great money in wages and tips, but the bar, where I worked, closed down in February and I have run out of unemployment. I am now, just trying to get the bare minimum to pay the rent and utilities, in order to survive in a home. I’m thinking that next month I will probably be living in my car, but I’m trying to take one month at a time. If anyone out there can help me, I might not be able to repay you, but I would be eternally grateful. Thank you and be safe.
My husband and I are in desperate need of financial assistance. Long story short, 3 years ago, after a 21 career in law enforcement, my husband was diagnosed with ocular melanoma. As a result, he lost his left eye and was forced to take a medical disability. Our finances have suffered ever since and we simply cannot get on track. Desperate, not knowing where to turn, I started a go fund me last fall. Everyone was so generous and it seemed we were finally going to be ok, but then the pandemic hit. The restaurant I worked at was closed and I was denied regular unemployment benefits because I did not meet the base period requirements. I immediately applied for the PUA benefits, but there was an “issue” with my identification and my claim is still pending. So after being out of work since March, I still have not received any unemployment benefits. Additionally, I decided to mail our income tax return this year rather than paying our CPA to file for us because our return was only about $700. Needless to say, we still haven’t received our income tax return and the IRS “where’s my refund” page doesn’t;t even show a record of it yet. In the meantime, we have fallen behind on our bills that we had just worked so hard to catch up on. This morning, 10 days before the lease was supposed to expire on our truck, it was repossessed. We spent the last couple weeks getting items ready to sell at the local flea market this upcoming weekend and the truck was loaded with those items, as is our trailer. We recently found a van that we planned to purchase knowing that our lease would be expiring, but we don’t have the funds to purchase it and both of our accounts are overdrawn due to bills that auto-draft monthly. In addition, we have booths at a local antique co-op that were supposed to generate additional income for us, but most months we find ourselves using money from my husbands monthly pension check to pay our booth rent only to just barely make it back on our commission checks throughout the month. So the additional income we expected is nonexistent and the commission from our sales more or less just keeps us in the building. Therefore, we are moving out by months end, but we no longer have our truck for the move. Since it is a co-op, we are required to work a certain number of days each month, or pay for those days in the event that the owner has to call in a non-scheduled vendor to work our shift. Unfortunately, due to some recent health issues (primarily migraines, but I also have a gallbladder issue), I missed some of our required days this month. When I went to pick up our commission checks today, he tried to charge me double for those missed days and would not release our checks because I did not have the money that he was demanding. He even made us pay booth rent when we were closed for 6 weeks. Long story short, we need money very quickly. Money that we have no way to obtain. I have always been a giver, not a taker. So swallowing my pride for the second time in a year and asking the public for help isn’t easy, but I can’t go to my family because even through our recent struggles, I still help them when I can. My mom is high risk for COVID-19. So as soon as things begin to get bad in March we pulled her from work and my little sister and I have been doing the best we can to help her financially. She has zero income currently as she is on FMLA, so she doesn’t qualify for unemployment either because she chose to take the time away, but she had to as this disease would kill her. It’s just all so much right now. We also have a 14 year old son. In fact, today is his 14th birthday.
Any help you could find in your heart to give would be beyond appreciated.
