I am looking to raise money to help keep my house. I have not been able to work due to Covid and I got pneumonia from it that I’m still recovering from. My work laid me off due to my absence and I have already tried rent relief that I got denied for as well. I live by myself and don’t have any family close by or anyone I talk to. I also have a dog of my own that I am trying to take care of who is only one and a half and I recently found a baby kitten behind a dumpster that was barely hanging on that I rescued and helped nurture back to life. I am still in the process of helping that kitten and would love to do anything I can to help there as well. If I don’t have anywhere to live I won’t be able to help myself or my fur babies. Last month I also had a repossession on my vehicle that I was not aware of and I am still in debt with my car as well. I just want to make sure I have a roof over my head this would help me so much.
I’ve written this out three times, only to delete it each time because I couldn’t get past my pride. I know there’s plenty of people struggling to make ends meet and I felt like maybe my struggles weren’t worthy of helping. I have been trying so hard to hold my chin up and retain my optimism but life keeps blindsiding me with no sign of letting up and I need help. It’s hard for me ask for help but here I am, begging for money.
The last two years have really been hard on me, starting with me finding my father in his recliner, already cold and gone. That in itself genuinely crushed me in a way that I could never have prepared for. I still feel the weight of his limp body as I hugged him one last time, the emptiness in his eyes is still burned into my memory and I still can’t hold back my tears, even as I write this now. My oldest daughter says part of me died with him that day. I know she isn’t wrong. Less than five months later I brought a beautiful, healthy baby girl into the world, nearly dying in the process. Spoiler alert: I pulled through. Fast forward three short months to the beginning of the pandemic. I’m here to tell you that isolation is the absolute worst thing for dealing with the stages of grief. To have nothing but time made it hard not to dwell on the moment that crippled my soul. Still recovering from my own brush with death, taking care of my girls and trying to manage my grief meant I was in no condition to work, which put all of the weight of supporting a family of four solely on my fiance’s shoulders. He breaks his back without complaint every damn day, struggling to make ends meet. I’m in a position where I can’t help provide and with nobody left to turn to.
I was a professional tattooist before all this began and I was good at my craft. Since then, my license has lapsed and we don’t have the income to reinstate it. Even if we did, tattooing isn’t really practical in the time of social distancing. I’ve turned to freelancing online but it’s hard to get work without a digital portfolio. I’m working on building it up but that doesn’t do much for our current income situation, which is bad enough that we’re genuinely concerned about losing our home. That is what brings me to my knees here and now before you all, begging for some help. I can’t let my pride get in the way any more. My family is in genuine need of help. I need some help. I know that I can’t climb out of rock bottoms basement on my own.
I named my oldest Karma because I believe what goes around comes around and that I truly believe in paying things forward. Please know that any help received will not be in vain. If any of this has compelled you to help me and my family then I thank you beyond words. We all do. If not, I understand completely and thank you for still taking the time to read this. If anything, it was somewhat therapeutic to let this all out. I’ve been holding it in for too long.
Hi, I am 33 year old father of 3 (11 and 3 year old son and 2 month old daughter) from the Philippines. Everything was good 4 years back, I had a stable job, a business on the side and we had enough for our daily needs and emergency needs. I started my own motorcycle repair shop business in 2017 as an additional means of income in hopes of being able to get our own house a few years down the road. Unfortunately, in September of 2019, my shop got caught in a fire that obliterated all my equipment, tools, supplies and 7 of my client’s motorcycles. The shop was not yet insured, so I had to get a loan from a bank and another lending company just so I could get the shop back up and running. Then came 2020 and COVID hit just as the shop started to recover, I had to cover the expenses for finishing the client’s motorcycles that were damaged in the fire, that meant me just getting around 2 hours of rest everyday as I continued my office job at night and I worked at the shop during the day. Despite the hard work, we were still behind on the loan payments and the debt increased each and every month. The shop was still afloat though and the second half of 2020 was better as I started to earn enough to get even at each month’s end. I went into 2021 full of hope, but in January 6 I was terminated from my office job where I worked for 11 years. 6 of the hardest months passed by, my wife was pregnant at this point, and I just couldn’t find a new job, I had more time at the shop but we were still accumulating debt. Finally last July I was able to start with my new job at the office, but now, despite having a new job, we’ve hit rock bottom financially. Every payday we literally have only 2,000 pesos or around 40$ to spare for groceries and our needs, the rent for our apartment, the shop and the bills. To make matters worst, the help I hired at my shop left without letting me know leaving no one at my motorcycle shop during the day.
I am asking for any kind of help that could help us get back on our own two feet, we are literally at rock bottom now, I am 3 months back on our apartment and shop rental, 2 months for our electric bills and I am unable to hire qualified personnel for the shop so work would continue and help with the expenses. I am unable to get a loan to somehow get things running back again as my credit standing is very low.
I believe in paying it forward and I never want to ask for help, at this point in time though, I have done everything that I can – transferred my son to a public school (still have balances unpaid at the private school), sold my motorcycle, pawned our appliances and have gone as far as me trying to sell my kidney as we are barely making it each month.
I am hoping this will be an avenue for me to get help — friends and family have left my side and I only have my own family at this point. Donations will be used to cope up with the bills, and hopefully be enough to get my motorcycle shop up and running again, and also my wife’s online shop to be operational again.
THANK YOU and may all who help out be given back a hundredfold of what they have given.

Hello kind people.
My name is Kasia. I’m originally from Poland but living in UK for over 10 years.
When I first arrived to UK I was living the dream. Great job fantastic friends and family around me.
Over the years life kicked me in teeth many times but I tried to stay strong and still enjoyed every day. I’ve learned many valuable lessons even when times started to be harder and harder. Parents always told be to be a strong person who’s not relying on anyone but myself.
Last year my grandmother died just before the covid hit us all. My parents took loan to pay it off but they lost their jobs and I tried to help them out. I borrowed some money to pay it off for them. At the moment I owe over £6000. Number is going up every day.
Instead of paying that off I tried my best to cover my living and theirs. They didn’t work for over a year and our (polish) government wasn’t as kind as British so they was without any income but only with more bills to pay.
I’m working full time but I had to borrow even more money to make our ( mine in uk and parents back home) living bit easier.
Work went very quiet so I started to go worst and worst with my finances.
I’m applying for many other jobs I can do after my basic job but there is no luck or hours are not suitable or more impossible for me to cover.
I’m not lazy I’m happy to work for my earning but trust me my circumstances are not helping to get it. Lack of experience to do work from home or to even get a job in retails! Its ridiculous!
I’m working legally and constantly since I arrived here. Im willing to do more but seems like im absolutely useless! Noone is willing to give me a chance. The chance id be so thankful for I’d never let the person down!
Im struggling with my rent and general bills can’t claim and money as according to government I should be able to cover all my costs. I earn a bit more than minimum wage. They dont care about the fact I try to be responsible not only for myself (live alone/rent)but my parents. I can’t just let them down can I?
Than my dog is started to struggle more with tumor and arthritis. Shes 11years old very happy lively puppy in general but now because I cannot afford vet and proper medications she’s mainly stuck in home. If i take her out for an hour she hardly can walk. It’s so painful to watch and know I’m not capable to help her only because everything cost money! She’s my everything here and I literally just live for her.
To top it up i started to have dental issues! Im only 38 years old but NHS is not so keen to see anyone without “major” issues but private doctors are not reachable to me. I have enough loans so im not able to take another medical one.
All that took off my confidence and strength. I locked myself in 4 walls. I dont go out to and i dont meet anyone. If not work and my duties with dog id never leave house. I become shadow of a human in just over a year.I see I’m getting depressed more every day. I’m loosing weight and will to live. Life is to “overwhelming ” to me now. I don’t see that happy friendly girl I used to be. I dont even like myself anymore. I see nothing but disappointment.
I don’t know where to go or what to do don’t even have anyone to talk to about all my worries. I keep myself to myself and pretend it’s all ok.
I came across that article suggesting to try ask strangers for help.
Im feeling so bad and embarrassed but I really don’t know how I can move from where I am right now. I feel like im stuck and going in circles just with more stuff to handle. For the first time in my life I’m feeling so alone and powerless.
To be absolutely honest I don’t even believe I’ll get any help here. There is so many people with much more serious issues in the world who need support and I feel I’m just making myself to look like a victim in a bad world. I become a victim of my irresponsible decisions and stubbornness I did ask for it right?
This site is my last hope for getting back on track. Thanks for taking your precious time to even read it till end.
Keep safe and thanks in advance for any help
Hello, my name is Ben, I’m 22 and I’m an apprentice as a Digital Champion at a school. I live with my girlfriend (also 22) – who has just become a uni student – in a block of flats. We only moved in May 2021 but we have a lease until may 2022. Our current rent drains both mine and my girlfriends accounts every month (mine constantly has a negative balance) which means we’re barely scraping enough money to buy our shopping. After buying the shopping and our rent is paid, we have virtually nothing between us and we are never able to do anything with each other. I work so hard at my job and I love it so much but it’s only apprenticeship wages and my girlfriends’ loan only cover living costs. We don’t/can’t spend our money on anything, we can’t even save as our outgoings are more than our income. I know a lot of people will wonder why we don’t just move back home or get our parents to help us but due to my dad never being around and my mum passing away last year and my girlfriend being kicked out of her home, we were forced to find a place for ourselves. Living like this has caused my depression to become quite severe and I’m trying to seek out medical help for this, but this has added pressure to my girlfriend as she does her best day in and day out to keep my motivation up and tries to bring out my happiness and the happy guy she fell in love with back, but there’s only so much she can do. I never want to put too much stress on her. We are extremely worried about the future. This attempt of trying to get money is our last resort as we’ve tried everything else and been denied access to other means to gaining ANY extra money we can. I’m hoping that someone somewhere out there will recognise that I’m not just trying to get people to give me money for nothing here. Personally I hate money and I wish it never existed and all humans were equal but annoyingly and upsettingly it does exist, and it’s a very real thing, which causes problems for us every day, let alone every month. This most likely won’t get any attention at all as there’s other people on here and similar places in worse situations than us, but at this point I’m willing to try anything. Thank you to anyone that even reads our post. I have provided my email address if anybody wishes to contact me or ask any questions.
- Hi everyone, my name is Jonathan fights a 34 year-old recovering drug addict from Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Two years ago I chose to get my life together I moved to Asheville North Carolina ultimately moving over to Johnson City Tennessee for a woman that I met on the internet. A year that relationship which was very abusive on her part I ended up losing everything I had being her who left took money from the bank account my car was stolen with ultimately led to me losing my job our house was robbed in the apartment I had Financial hardships and we were evicted. I’ve been on the street for the past two and a half months I’ve been on their resource list for housing for the past 6 months I reach at the church’s local businesses and Resource Centers and I got the food and all their little resources but nothing in the means of housing or help for housing. I’m just looking for enough to get my life together and get into an apartment and be able to get a stable job because being on History Channel morning maybe once every couple days and fighting the need and the demons are inside of me for being only two years clean out of a 15-year heroin addiction are really eating at me. Family kind of showing me being at the life I chose for so long made me with the mental illnesses that I heard put them away at the same time and it’s very hard being. I know nobody and my family and friends are so far away so I just looked it may be raised about $3,000 to get myself a car and a stable environment to live so I can be able to get a job and get back and forth and not have to outside and deal with the life to life Times Square. I have nothing no one and don’t see that way at the end of the tunnel that everybody always talks about. The Demons by fight every day or not going to win over me I will not go back to that life I lived it but I just need a little bit of Hope and motivation that there is some good in the world still in that I can succeed if anybody get out. I would greatly appreciated as my grandmother always told me pay it forward and nothing good comes out of somebody with green but good things come to somebody not looking for anything in return and that’s all I wanted this to you so that I can be a better person and I will be a better person. Thank you to all who may help help me in that process and I hope I can pay it back in any way I can possible thank you
Hello. My name is Kaya. My fiancee Charles and I have been struggling to survive during this COVID-19 pandemic. I suffer from generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar, and borderline personality disorder. These illnesses disrupt my day to day life and I am unable to hold a job and barely able to leave the hotel room we live in currently. We’ve lived in hotels for almost 2 years now, which is why I decided to write you. We desperately need help to save up the initial move-in cost to get a real apartment. Charles works at a nearby hotel. He doesn’t make enough money to save up for move in costs for an apartment, we pay rent weekly of 300 which leaves us with not much for food and other bills. So we are struggling. We’ve signed up for PA government medical and food assistance but are still waiting on the application to process. My fiancee also suffers from mental health issues, Major Depressive disorder, ADHD, and Asperger’s syndrome; making working very difficult for him to function day to day without medication as well but he is doing great and trying his best. We just still need help. We don’t have family that we can turn to for help with our situation we really only have each other. We want to start a cryptocurrency mining operation but don’t have the funds to start yet. We believe that this would be the best option for us as it would give us passive income so we don’t have to constantly fear losing everything we’ve worked so hard for we plan to start mining and grow that business to fund other business ideas so it’s an investment for our future. We want to be able to give back to others in less fortunate positions in the future as well because we’ve been there and every needs some help at some point (well we are there currently). However we are caught in a sort of limbo as we cannot afford to save because we live paycheck to paycheck, in constant fear that if his checks are late or he falls ill we could end up homeless. Is there anything you can do to help us get closer to our goal of true financial stability? We are looking at an apartment complex right next to our hotel as a place to move to become it is in walking distance to Charles’ work but we need $2000 for move in costs (security Deposit +first months rent) but any amount you can do to help us out with would be really wonderful and greatly appreciated.
What happens when the super giving, super generous person can no longer give? This is where I find myself currently. I have always been the person that wants to help others, and does my best to do so, but I have fallen victim to rising rent prices, overwhelming credit card debt with high interest rates, and not enough income to support it.
Rest assured, I am taking all the steps I need to take and I’m doing everything I can to keep myself afloat, but I feel like I’m drowning, and making zero progress. As of right now, I have precisely $21,355 of credit card debt that is a constant stressor in my life.
Let me fill you in: I am single (just me and my dog) working a full time job that I love, and I am also going to school full time. My salary isn’t the best, but I do get bonuses, which are enough to help me “catch up” and that’s about it. I decided to go back to school so I can get a degree, which will ultimately help me progress further in my career. I do not (and will not) have student loans, as that will just negatively impact my debt situation, and I’ve been fortunate to have school paid for (scholarships!) but the book expenses are killing me. I am working on getting a promotion and I’m working overtime as much as possible, but with school, it is difficult to balance that time.
With rent rising at an insane rate, and the price of groceries, gas, everything increasing, I cannot sleep at night not knowing if I’ll be able to pay my bills. I am working hard to come up with any solution to help me out, I’m trying to get my credit card debt paid off so I can breathe, improve my credit score, and finally start saving money so I can buy a home. It seems as though every step forward is met by two steps backward, even though I am doing everything I can to help my situation (selling items I own, shopping frugally for groceries, not eating out, cutting any extra spending) and I have reached a dead end.
My job every day is helping people. I know there are good humans out there willing to help me and my dog. I currently have 3 past due bills. I’ve had to decline events, I couldn’t even attend a dear friends wedding because of this situation. I will not turn to drinking/drugs to cope with the stress, instead I go work out at the facility in the apartment complex I live in. I pray every day for help, and I’ve run out of options. Thank you for reading and for those kind enough to help, it’s appreciated more than you know.
I’m a 26 year old queer transman living paycheck to paycheck. Recently, my world’s been thrown sideways, with my Nana passing last year due to COVID, my mother passing this March, and my soon-to-be exhusband suddenly filing for divorce after two months of unemployment where I was covering most of our expenses.
With everything that’s happened, and all the expense, even trying to pick up as many hours as possible at my retail job I can’t afford my rent or food or anything really. My next paycheck is only about $100 due to unavoidable time off. My family heirlooms aren’t worth much, though I am trying desperately to sell them or pawn them, along with many things I own.
A personal loan is something I’ve looked into, but due to multiple medical bills in collections destroying my credit, I can’t afford to pay any of the ones I can get approved for back.
I currently have less than $300 in the bank total for rent, utilities, food, gas, my cats, my appointments, my medications, etc.
I’m here because I’m desperate. I only have until Oct. 10th to at least gather $900 for just my rent alone so I don’t get evicted. I’m already one month behind. That’s not including my water or gas or electricity. I have nowhere else to turn. I have no idea what to do.
Thank you for reading and considering helping me. It means more than you can know.
I am falling very behind on rent to a point where I might get evicted
I started falling behind because my job failed for months to pay me my correct salary as they used the excuse that they are not making enough money themselves
I ended up leaving the job because they still expected me to give them 100% when they wouldn’t compensate for my time and work , I even worked weekends and overnights to help them and they always failed to pay me the correct sum
im looking for a very generous donation that will help me avoid losing my place and also cover while I look for a decent and honest individual/ company to work for.
i am seeing $10,000
you have no idea how much this would mean to me and in months to come I hope to also help the way I would be helped now
I’m here to ask for the kindness of others to help me and my family find a place to live. After abruptly being kicked out from where we were staying things have gotten very hard. My girlfriend is pregnant (due November 20th, with my first son. Our first child together.). I’m not here to ask for a hand out, I am working and putting money back every week. She has a friend that her and her 2 kids stay with, but has sense been told once the baby is here she will have to leave. I am sleeping in my car however. I am currently in the middle of fighting for visitation of my 2 little girls from another relationship. In order to get this visitation I need to have a place to stay. Everything seems very overwhelming right now but We are doing our best to keep spirits up and keep pushing. We are searching for some assistance to just help us get through this hard time and back onto our feet. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
TLDR: She likes the names Greyson and Jayce. I like Xander. Thoughts? Opinions?
I don’t know if it makes me feel better or more depressed to be at the point where I need to beg for help, but here I am. I’ve worked hard my entire life, done the things I was led to believe would help me be successful, be able to provide for my family, be able to help out my mother and my sisters. But it just feels like I’m on a constant wheel running myself ragged and never getting anywhere. I struggle to pay my bills, need to use my credit cards to pay for necessities and am just trapped in this debt loop. I went back to school and got a business degree hoping to get myself out of this, and after working crazy hours killing myself for a company with a toxic work environment, while working 2 other jobs at night and on weekends. I thought I was offered a better position elsewhere and happily gave notice. After leaving I found out that the position I believed I was offered had changed directions and I did not have a job. Now I don’t have a full time job, can’t make enough with the two part time gigs I have and just feel like I’m never going to get out of this. I don’t qualify for unemployment since I quit, and I am down to the end of my savings. I don’t know how I will pay my rent or utilities much less eat. I had a long term gig lined up that was canceled when Hurricane Ida hit us in Louisiana and I was really counting on that. I had to stop taking my depression medication because I couldn’t afford it and now I’m battling that on top of the situation I’m in. I just don’t know what I will do and I don’t know if anyone would even care to help this random woman you don’t know but anything would be so appreciated. I’m just trying to get myself mentally healthy, get myself out of debt and find a job that is stable and provides enough but I can’t do that on my own it seems. I don’t want to be a worthless failure and I just think if I had some help I could get out of this and become something.
I have tweeted about this before, so here’s the story. In this moment I’ve been living outside for 2-3 days.
The story as to why you’ve been seeing all these “begging for money” tweets.
First of all, if you intend to judge me or say obvious things like “get a job”, you can stop reading now. I’m going to try to make this story short, but it’sa long one.
It all started in November last year, 2020. I got evicted for not being able to pay rent due to me making what has been and probably will be the biggest and most stupid mistake of my life. I spent the rent money on other things than rent and electricity. Simple as that.
I’ve basically been homeless since then and due to having a rent debt, getting a permanent home even now is impossible.
“Have you tried the church, have you called social services, have you…”
YES. Otherwise I wouldn’t be here for this long.
I’ve stayed at my boyfriends since then but it’s been an off and on kind of thing.. My clothes packed in bags just in case he would throw me out during the times we’ve fought.
A month ago he left, he left his life in this town, he left everything without anyone knowing or hearing from him. People have seen him in another town so we know he’s alive at least..
I’ve been in contact with the police more than once regarding him, just to know if he’s alive or not. I’ve called EVERYONE on his social media accounts, the mother of his kids even called the police several times because they didnt know anything either. But eventually they had to tell me to stop calling because he left on his own will and he’s “well”. So eventually I knew nothing and couldn’t get more info.
4 months ago he found out that he also had been evicted, that and his drug abuse got to him so he left me in the middle of his own eviction. He had a bill to pay that was $1500 but even tho I knew and he knew he could pay it, he refused. He had a well payed job and could’ve easily saved his home. But he never listened.. He ran, escaped his own reality.
I had no place to go, even before that I’ve had no place to go so I’ve been couchsurfing all this time. I’ve been dragging my bags with my stuff everywhere, I hardly get any sleep due to not having a permanent place. I still stayed at his place now and then just to know when the bailiff would come to pick up the stuff “we” had there. Even though I was suffering from heartache every day, I packed our stuff and put it away for them to pick it up when it was due time to leave the apartment. One day last month they showed up and told me to take the necessary stuff.. me broken down crying took the basics, toothbrush, some bags with clothes and left so they could change the lock. There was no way of getting back in now. I sat outside on the terrace while they packed everything in to a van..
I begged them to please let me stay until my boyfriend contacts them.. I didnt know when and if it would happen, but I begged them. They ofcourse said no because it was against their policy and the landlord refused to change her mind too.. Even though I’ve written her several long letters since this all happened.. I started writing the landlord letters since day 7 of the “disappearance” of my boyfriend. Explaining, begging for mercy, begging her to let me stay or take over the apartment. She replied no every time.. eventually she stopped replying and I stopped writing her letters after day 23.. Thinking about this, writing about this pains me immensely. I will never understand why and how another person can just leave a life as if everything is okay. As if the person you leave in your home, is okay.. Had I known that the one person you trust, even so little, would leave you in the middle of a mess you both been struggling with, in the blink of an eye.. I would’ve never been here. It all happened without anything being said, not a single word about why. Nothing and this silence has torn me apart.
I have suffered a lot during this time and I still am and I’m not sure I will recover completely..
My boyfriends eviction is not the only thing that has been going on during the time he’s been away, there’s been threats against me due to him owing people money for god knows what. Due to us having a relationship they come after me as if I would have more info about him than anyone else. I’ve tried to tell them that him and I are over, that we no longer are related in any way. But to no avail, they refuse to listen and this with the stress, the heartache, the unknowingness.. has made my life hard to even want to live through and there have been times I’ve been wanting to give up completely.
My family is poor, they always have been. I have gone as far as asking my dad in Chile for help with money so I can pay for a room, he says he cant. My sister refuses to take an apartment in her name for me because she doesnt trust me to pay rent. And I COMPLETELY understand that.
My mother doesnt have credibility to take an apartment either. Friends, well.. I really don’t have any best friends, or really close friends that can help me. They offer rooms now and again, but nothing is permanent. Nothing will be unless I pay this rent debt, and they demand the whole bill at once.. which is impossible for me because I cant even take a bank loan.
My rent debt is at $7000 as far as I know.. but the bill keeps growing for each day.. I made a stupid mistake last summer and back then I didnt think about the consequences of my actions. Do not make this mistake yourself.. it will be one that will stick with you your whole life.
What are you doing now? I have applied for half-time jobs so I don’t lose my “sickness compensation” (I think that’s what its called) which I get because of my Borderline.
I call social services still, its a long process to see if they can help me pay for a room for a longer period of time. But I’ve lost hope in regards to that after all this time.They can’t help with an apartment, thats just not how it works here in Sweden. I’m on my own regarding that.. I have to look for a place on my own, and I have been for over 6 months now.. Landlords are tough when it comes to rent debt. But I’ve been honest in all my applications, figure there’s no reason to hide anything from them because they’ll find out anyway.
I’ve been “begging” for money on Twitter because there have been no other options. Had there been, I wouldnt have asked there at all. My dignity is at rock bottom because of this, I am CONSTANTLY ashamed of asking people, I’ve asked people that don’t even know me.. I do not do it because it’s fun or to scam. I do it because I am desperate and because right now I am at a place in life where I never wanted to be, never expected to be.
I have yet to find a place to stay more permanently. I have yet to find peace and safety..
So now I am struggling to find a kind soul that can lend me money until November/December so I can stay at a place for 2 months, which is $400.. But I will be struggling a long time for that.
Unfortunately I can’t work on my pc with art and graphics.. Heck, I cant even remember how Photoshop looks or works anymore! dont have my own pc atm.. I have a lousy laptop which I use now and then but I cant do much on it. Had I been able to I wouldve managed better when it comes to food and renting rooms.
This is the long story short, peeps. I can’t write more right now because I am already broken and I’m afraid of breaking down to the point of no return if I continue.. at least today. I am so tired of all this.
To those who have helped me. Please, know that I will return the money you’ve “lent” or helped me with. I cant tell you when, but you guys know this. Only a few have set dates when I can pay back.. I am sorry if I ever offended anyone by asking for money, I know its faul and frowned upon..
I am so so sorry..
Greetings! I am a disabled Marine veteran, who is trying to build up an at-home business reselling on eBay and Poshmark, plus other online venues. I have fibromyalgia, and sleep issues, so I wanted to work on something that I could do at my time and pace. I have no car, and use a mobility scooter, so working from home was the best. I was behind on my rent and electric, and had donated blood, and had JUST started Door Dash, for 3 days in a row. I felt like I was starting to get on the up and up…when Friday, I stepped out of the door, my ankle rotated, and I fell, breaking my ankle. Of course, it had to be my right ankle, preventing me from using the car that I am borrowing. So…I am back to square one. This makes it even more difficult for me to do my eBay, as i can’t walk around/etc as much, and bending over to lift will be trouble.
Currently, I am $1000 behind on rent (my rent is 955, cat rent is $50, and they charge maintenance/water fees of $50 also). I am a touch over $200 behind in electricity. I have changed over to “flex pay” which allows me to pay ahead, and anything I put down, 15% goes towards the back due.
I hope that I can get help, as anything will help. Thank you for any assistance!

Hi my name is Marsha Rice. I am a nursing student who will graduate in August of 22. I have a job and until recently I actually had two jobs. I work as a CNA for nursing home and a clerk with 7-eleven. I quit my 7-eleven job because trying to keep my grades up and have study groups to help weaker students was wearing me a bit thin. When the second round of COVID hit my job at the nursing home I had to unfortunately scale back those hours sue to the TXBON rules of nursing school. If I were to get sick and miss more than 2 clinical days or 15 hours of nursing school, I would be cut from the nursing program no exceptions. I went through a divorce recently and took my kids and picked up our lives and started over. I was doing fine with paying my car payment and rent and utilities until recently with my hours cut back at work. I don’t get child credit checks because my kids are over 18. They go to school and I have one Marine that just got back from Afghanistan. He will be home in Nov. of this year. I don’t have food stamps partly because I have always grocery shopped on a budget and partly because the government doesn’t recognize me as low income enough. Yes, my kids help when they can but they have school and I’m trying to teach them the benefit of school without hardships of starting a family or a full-time job. We don’t have new cars, I don’t spend money on nails, hair, or anything of that sort. We don’t go out to eat not even when my study sessions are at IHOP. I explain all of this because I want you to know that if I could cut anything out to help with my budget I would and have. I am someone that hit a rough patch and that doesn’t ask for help. I applied for rental relief 2 months ago and it is still in review, which is completely understandable. I am someone who has always and will continue to pay it forward when I am able to in the future. I have included pictures taken off my apartment complex website that has my overdue amount. We don’t get paper unless it’s a eviction notice and I’m trying to keep that from happening by giving every penny I can to the apartment manager. I even gave my school check that I get back after tuition and books are paid but the check wasn’t enough to cover the almost $5000 owed. Please know that anything will help me breathe and focus on becoming a nurse that has been a life-long goal of mine. Thank you for taking the time to read my request and the consideration of helping me.
