Hello. Thank you so much for reading this post.
I am in a very challenging situation and am looking for help in order to get back on track.
I couldn’t think of any place or person to go to for help. Therefore, I am posting here with the hope that it will reach someone who is in a position to help and can really help.
I lost a job and am out of work. I am actively looking for employment, but still haven’t found work yet. I have completely ran out of resources, and am in an extremely challenging situation. I’ve been through so much stress lately.
The rent and bills are coming in just a few days, with some being overdue. I need immediate help with rent to avoid having to move out and face unwanted consequences.
Also, my lease is ending at the end of June without a renewal option. This means that I have to find a new place and pay a security deposit and the first month’s rent.
I urgently need $1200 to cover the rent and bills and some other living expenses, including food. But I cannot think of a way how I can come up with that amount in such a short time, especially being out of work. I am trying to take steps to remedy this situation, but still couldn’t come up with a solution yet.
Also, I need about $1800 for a security deposit and first month’s rent in the new place. I need to secure a new place now, because rental units are up for grabs and are taken very quickly.
So, totally, I am looking to raise $3000 and am looking for sponsors who can help.
Is there anyone who can help? Your help would really save me and help me to get out of this situation. I hope that in a more peaceful state of mind I would be better with finding employment quickly.
I believe that there must be a way out. I hope that there are kind and caring people with big heart that are reading this post who can help and don’t mind an act of philanthropy.
If you can help with any amount, I would be so grateful to you. I really appreciate your help.
I believe I have outlined my situation in this posting. I am a very decent person who happened to fall into this life situation, which I know is just a temporary situation. I know things will get better soon.
If you have a genuine intent to help and still need some additional information from me prior to sending the funds to sponsor me, please contact me.
However, if you don’t have a genuine intent to help, and will ask for a fee to be sent to to you before you can help, or you are helping only people in military or with some other kinds of restrictions, or in return you want me to do some trading on your behalf in the country or some kind of money laundering activities, I ask that you please do not contact me.
I am so hopeful that someone can help. Thank you so much in advance.
Firstly thanks for reading. My name is Matt and I live in the North East of Scotland. My life has gradually been falling apart for the past few years. Around 2012 my wife began suffering from depression, that led to her having to give up work. This meant we were having to survive on my wage alone. In trying to keep our home I stupidly took out numerous payday loans, this spiral dragged me into a hole and I have been continuously borrowing since then. I have been unable to confide in my wife about the state of my finances as with her depression this will tip her over the edge. I have been getting by every month somehow (basically borrowing more every month). I owe my parents money, owe thousands to payday and guarantor loans. This month everything has come to a head, I am not able to borrow any further money and wont have enough to pay our rent or bills. Every day I feel suicidal, I look at myself in the mirror and try to think of a painless way to kill myself. The only thing that stops me is leaving my wife on her own, as she is so vulnerable I don’t know how she would cope. I need to get some of my debts paid or at least have a little cash to help get through this month. This feels horrible having to ask for the kindness of strangers to get me through this situation I am in but I don’t know where else to turn. Anything would be appreciated, I realise this is a long shot but I’m at the end of my tether and don’t know how much more I can take.
Thank you to anyone who may be able to help, even £1 would help me at the moment.
I can’t believe I am finding myself at a site, asking for money, but here I am. In this day and age it’s hard to believe this is for real, but I am hoping it is as my family and in a desperate need. I joined the Air Force June of 2016, and graduated basic training the end of February. My job requires a top secret clearance which when I swore in was totally fine, my wife and I have always done ok for ourselves, and financially we weren’t perfect, but it wasn’t a daily struggle either. All of a sudden, one thing led to another for us financially over the last couple of months and now we are in danger of not being able to pay our rent, car payment etc. My main concern is providing for my family but I also don’t want to ruin my great Air Force career that I am just beginning. I am 37 and Time is against me due to my age and starting so late compared to most. My wife and I work hard and want to continue. We aren’t asking to be rich, we don’t like things given to us. My wife is finishing up her Pharmicist Degree and with myself deciding to serve our country, it shows we are willing to take risks and make sacrifices to help our family long term.
The main reason I am here and was looking for money is a loan. We have $47,000 in debt from our vehicle, a business loan, business credit card etc. together those payments are costing us $1400 a month which is killing us. My intentions were to cut that payment in half which the 700 a month savings would literally be life changing for us.
So anyways I don’t know if you can help or know someone who can but if so, you’d be an answer to my prayer. Thank you
Hi. Just yesterday I lost my wallet which contained the remaining amount of my rent money. I must have left it on my trunk or the roof of my car as I buckled my daughter into her car seat . We had lunch and went to the park. I’ve searched anywhere I can think of that we were at that day. I’m already late and I’m on the verge of eviction. My complex files on the 26th. I’m a single mom and I work two jobs. I pay for everything myself and this is truly devastating. This was all I needed to pay to be caught up. I’m asking for help from anyone who can donate to raise $500. I’ve never had to do this before and I would appreciate any and all help. Just need to some kindness. Thank you! d I would appreciate any and all help. Just need to some kindness. Thank you!
Hello, My names is Alexander Maurice Dixon Decambre. I am from Newark, New Jersey, but currently reside with in Central Florida. It’s been less than a year ago that i was attending FAMU for a Bachelors in Accounting, but a change of scenery opened my eyes to what my true potential is. I’ve always been good at writing. Poetry is my favorite thing, however that wasn’t going to be my sole source of income. After leaving college I moved back in with mom who I’ve been abused and beaten by since i was 4 (thats as early as i can remember) and I’m not saying this to appeal to anyones emotions, its just explains why me and my mother wouldn’t be fit to live with each other. I applied to jobs before i even came back to central Florida however the application process too way to long for my mothers liking. She raised me as a single parent as well. For that reason i honestly don’t have any other family members to live with. Luckily i knew a friend from high school and he offered me a place to live when my mother eventually pushed me out of the house. It took two weeks for me to get employed and now I’m working 2 jobs, one at a temp agency called Nesco and another at Mc Donald’s. Now the rule was we all pitch in $350 for rent, which wouldn’t have been a problem until i realized how my paychecks were set up. I only get paid for 1 week, every 2 weeks. Truthfully i don’t even have money for my self (food, bearly laundry etc) and I’m scared I won’t have enough money for rent in 2 weeks. If i don’t have the money not only do i get evicted but so do the people I live with. They have people they can move in with. I will be homeless. I would appreciate it if you could lend me some money just so i can get on my feet for this month. Thank you. My new home doesn’t look like much but its much better living duress free.
Hello. Thank you for reading my post.

I couldn’t think of any place or person to go to for help, and came across this site. Therefore, I decided to place a posting here with the hope that someone who can assist will see it.
I lost a job and am out of work. I am actively looking for employment, but as of today, still haven’t found a job yet. I have completely ran out of resources, and am in an extremely challenging situation.
My rent and bills are overdue, and the new ones are coming. I need immediate help to avoid having to move out and face unwanted consequences.The rental office gave me just a few more days to pay the rent and threatened to take action if this is not done.
I urgently need $1200 to cover the rent and bills and some additional funds for food and living expenses, but cannot think of a way to come up with that amount in such a short time. I am trying to take steps to remedy this situation, but still couldn’t come up with anything.
Is there anyone who can help another human being in need? Your help would really save me and help me to get out of this situation.
I believe that there must be a way out. I hope that there are kind and caring people out there who can help and who don’t mind the act of philanthropy.
If you can help with any amount, I would be so grateful to you. I really appreciate your help.
Thank you so much in advance.
Where do I start..
I am a single mum to a 5 year old daughter who is now struggling to pay bills and debt. Last year I decided to start up a business so that I was able to work from home and save money on childcare costs during school holidays.
When my daughter was born I had it all, nice house, nice car, private nursery place for our little girl and no money worries. Then my partner got violent and I ended up leaving. I decided to sign over the house to him just so that we could part ways. Finally I was free. I rented a small house with my daughter and continued to work.
Previous to starting up this business I was employed with a company for 9 years. I got on well with my colleagues but my manager was inappropriate via text and email. I was made to feel uneasy.
The year before my daughter was due to start school I suggested having a chat about flexible working hours/working from home. Working from home was shot down straight away, not even given a thought. What would I do during school holidays and sickness? I was a single mum who’s parents still work. Relying on great grandparents was not an option due to their health. I was left in an uncertain situation. The subject was brought up many times with my manager, each time the reply was ‘yeah we’ll sort it’. But we never did..
A while later I was looking into working from home. I finally found an opportunity that suited me. I went for lots of interviews and applied for a start up loan. Everything seemed perfect. I handed my notice in so that I could spend some time with my daughter before she started school.
The business has now been running for 8 months and I am yet to make a significant amount of money. I am now struggling to pay off my loan and keep up with bills. My landlords are awful at fixing things/replying/getting in touch and it’s wearing me down. I’d love to be able to pay off my debts and try to put together a deposit for a small house that would be my own. I have spent many sleepless nights thinking of ways to find any evening jobs that can be done from home and thinking of ways to raise money. Any help at all would be a huge weight lifted. I never imagined I would be in this situation!
My name is Mike. I’m a 39 year old man living with my girlfriend and our 10 year old daughter. I’m a proud person but hard times have forced me to do this. I’m a diabetic, my girlfriend has multiple disabilities that prevent her from working. She has heart and spinal problems, frequent migraines, a permanent drop foot, severe nerve damage in her leg from complications with a hip replacement surgery and is on multiple medications. My daughter has been diagnosed with asperger syndrome, ADHD, and generalized anxiety disorder and is currently being tried on various medication and therapies to try to help her. We are behind on the rent at our duplex and our landlord is threatening eviction any day now if he doesn’t receive the payment. When we first moved here things were ok. Money was tight but we were able to manage. Then we got the notice that her disability check was being cut. I worked a lot of overtime to compensate but then my employer was bought out and my overtime completely cut out. I took a second job to try to make up for it but the money was not nearly as good and we started having to pay partial payments on bills and skip some altogether. We tried applying for assistance but were informed we did not qualify because I made too much money. I’m am having to carry the full weight of our upkeep and it’s more than I can do. My child has feeding issues and is underweight, so we have to buy more groceries than we might normally in an attempt to help here gain weight so as to avoid having a g tube put in her stomach. I have tried borrowing money but my credit has been hurt by having to miss payments on various bills and I can’t get a traditional loan. I’m trying desperately to keep us above water but every month we are farther and farther behind. My landlord has been told about the situation but was not sympathetic. We were served with a detainer warrant and had to go to court more than once. Each time putting us further behind because of court costs and attorney fees caused us to be later and later with the rent which caused an accumulation of late fees. It’s come to a point now where I expect to be served with an eviction notice any day and while I am ok with sleeping in my car for a while I can’t expect my family to suffer like that. The situation will be resolved at the end of June when the lease ends. It’s just staying in our home till then. My girlfriend and daughter will be able to stay with her mother while I find a more affordable home. Her mother is currently in another state but is moving here in July so we have that to look forward to. It kills me to as for help this way, but I’m desperate and willing to do anything to keep my family sheltered and provided for. I need desperately to come up with at least $2600 to keep our home till July. Anything over will be used for medications, groceries, and medications. Anything anyone feels led to do to help is greatly appreciated. God bless
I need to move out of my current property ASAP.
I lived here with my abusive ex-partner who moved out with police assistance at the end of 2016. From this I experienced high levels of abuse (physical, emotional & sexual) which meant I am now on my highest dose of anti-depressants since 2013 when I went to court against my father for domestic abuse (which he got away with) this has really affected my post traumatic stress disorder however I am now just getting back on my feet. Since then I have lived alone in my current property however it is too expensive for me to run by myself and an currently getting into debt trying to keep up with bills and rent etc.
I am looking for another property, just a small 1 bedroom or studio however will need help with the deposit and paying off debts I currently owe due to living here alone.
I have managed to save £300 however I am asking for £2000 to help me move into my new place, pay off debts owed to my current landlord, pay off the money I owe to my electric company, council tax, water company & TV licence (I really am in a pickle!) and to give me a fresh new start.
If I had relatives or family to ask for this then I probably wouldn’t be on here however I don’t have the privileged of this so any help would be very much appreciated.
Please contact me if you wish to know more
Hello. My name is Patricia. I’m 61 years of age and am in good health in many ways.
Though I in good health mostly, I have some nerve issues that are causing barriers for employment. The nerves from my neck to my arms is something I need to be guarded about in the work place, for when it gets activated the pain is unbelievable and my arm(s) become useless. It took over 2 months early last year for it to get back to normal so I could be productive. When this condition is not activated I’m fine. It just poses limits on what I can do and how I do it.
Another aspect of this neck experience is the strength and dexterity in my hands has gone down. That has put a “jigger” in work possibilities for me. I get very nervous when I’m not able to move fast enough to please the supervisor and/or customers. It’s embarrassing at least, frustrates everyone, and I feel immensely inadequate. I’ve always been good at whatever I do.
In addition to this I have had sleep issues partly due to my neck, and I found partly due to mild Sleep Apnea. I was a professional driver for our school district. I had a small accident that I felt was sleep related and I stepped down, mainly because I didn’t have the means to pay a large co-pay required through my insurance, to get the certain help I needed at that time. Since then, I have had 3 fairly simple jobs where I have failed to make the grade due to these issues. I’m starting to feel like I’m between a rock and a hard place and a little worried.
My main situation is that I am behind on my rent by 2 months – April and May, because I haven’t been able to find work yet. The people whose home I share have tried to have patience with me and I have so appreciated it but….things are getting increasing uncomfortable on both sides. My rent varies from about $565 to $600 which includes utilities. The insulation is poor in this big older home. However, this place is a great price for the area I live in and I don’t want to lose it if all possible.
My request is for $1,175 for these 2 months of back rent and 1 more month if possible as I secure work. I also need help with food and gas money. I can do with $200 a month or so for 2 months which is $400. My request is for $1,600 to $1,700. That would be so helpful.
I have not been idle researching possible career paths for me; and I am not interested in hanging out on disability (which I don’t qualify for anyway). What I really want is to utilize my gifts, talents, experience, wisdom, and knowledge I have garnered over the years. I want to thank you for taking your time to hear my plight. The very last thing I ever had in mind is to ask people for money anywhere, or did I expect to be in such a situation. Thank you for considering me.
Basically, back in September I lost my job and it’s been really hard to find one, my bills started getting behind back in December, since then i have had 2 jobs but now i am at risk of losing my place. I am 18 years old. My name is Maya. I owe 950 on rent and I am 3 weeks behind. I have a 50$ water bill and owe a mechanic 2100$ to get my car fix but at this rate i just want my rent paid. I have been living on my own for 1 year and 4 months now. I have a cat that i do need to feed as well. I been feeding him more than me at the moment considering all i have is 100$ for rent. Please help me. I am begging you! Most of the time I don’t ask for help But i am now. The reason my parents won’t help is because one I no longer can contact and the other left me to drug users. I do have a boyfriend who is currently working considering I just quit my job due the fact they made me cry everyday. But his check alone only pays for food, water, and a little bit of power. I am seriously desperate you have no idea anymore. It’s like every time I turn around, life just wants to kick me in the butt and say I am going to ruin it. I want to go back to school and get my graphic art degree but in order to do that I need my rent paid and some food money and my car back I don’t even care if this is a scam at this point i need money. I also just had gallbladder removal surgery and other health problems as well. I also have 2 other roommates but they only made 400 all together and its still not enough. Times are tough and I am hungry. I need help I really really really really need help even if owe somebody back i need the help even if it’s just for one more month, I want a place to live, I don’t do drugs I live my life and try hard and ask nothing in return but this time I am and I am asking for help. If you decide not to help me I am okay with that. But i truly need your help. Or somebody’s help i pray to god or I am going to go homeless. Sincerely -Maya C.A
Where to begin.. My name is Jessica, I am a single Mom of a 3 year old little boy, who is my life. And at the moment struggling. I have asked for rental assistance from government organization’s, chruchs, non-profit, but every where I have turned there is no funding. I just do not know where to turn. I am currently seeking better employment. I just do not want to lose our home (apartment) my 3 year old has felt enough heartache with his whole life being turned upside down over the last two half years. His father made poor choices and ended up addicted to drugs, and eventually landed him in prison, which was rock a bottom moment for my family! We went from a normal family with a hard working great father, that became stuck in a world of hellish suffering and heavenly miracles. A man who completely provided for and loved his family, to not having him here at all! Which was the beginning of hard times. I worked 60 hours a week maintaining my household and trying to find time with my baby. Unfortunately I lost a job that we were comfortable paying all our bills. I now work one job and a second job doing deliverys, and cleaning jobs on the side, trying to make ends meet, which we now live paycheck to paycheck, due to losing the one job we fell behind in rent and it is nearly impossible to catch up. And I only want to be able to provide for my son Xavier and give him the things he needs. I am curretly behind in bills and payments but am only asking for assistanve for my back rent. I currently Have two job interviews lined up for Monday, that presents a better opportunity for my family. Also I am.in the process of trying to begin the process of starting my own LLC cleaning company. But in the meantime I can not lose the roof over our heads. I have no choice but to reach out and ask for help. My Mom has tried to help me in everyway possible buy she struggles herself. And I have nowhere else to turn. So I only ask that someone finds it in their heart to help us. With my son so young it is hard with childcare to work more then I already do. Plus he needs time with Mom, and until then I will do everything in my power to provide even if it’s means less and less time with my baby. Until my head is above water. I just need a helping hand to keep our home it maybe a small 1bedroom apartment but it is where we call home. I can email documents needed to show proof I am behind my email.is firstname.lastname@example.org. I would like to thank everyone who takes their time to read this. And appreciate any help or feedback that is given. God bless.
Jessica & Xavier
I am in an extreme need of some cash just to pay bills and to stay afloat. I am seriously on the edge with Stress and depression to the point where I haven’t slept in 36 hours while typing this. I have tried getting a second job, working odd jobs, getting small payday loans. But everything just seems to end up with me back where I started. Finding the job I have was hard enough and even though I have a good work ethic and I am extremely friendly I can’t seem to get a job anywhere short of Jimmy John’s and having already worked there before I realized that I was barely making 100 a week in profit there. I tried taking jobs from Craigslist where I could, but most of those are “hot babes needed” or something equally absurd. Payday loans help at first, but they just keep making things worse and no one seems to be interested in giving me a real loan. I really only need around 1250 to take care of the issue right now, but 2500 would probably give me the breathing room I need to no longer feel so extremely stressed and possibly even help me think more clearly and work on something more long term to fix this issue. But any help is so extremely appreciated. My landlord is really starting to hound me about being late with rent by about a week every month. I am tempted at this point to go to the casino and hope to god I get lucky, but I wanted to try this one last thing first.
Hello, I am writing this plea for help after much deliberation. I feel I have been pushed into a corner and have no other option but to ask for the help of kind strangers who may be in a better position financially then I am.
My name is Sean, I am 30 years old and have recently been blessed with the birth of my daughter Emily, who is now just over 4 months old. She is perfect in every way and has brought so much joy to me and my partner Hannah.
Over the last two months I have lost my job as a self employed delivery driver, the company no longer need my services. This has put a great deal of strain on me and my partner as she is not working and only receives basic benefits.
We are currently living with my mother in a two bedroom flat and as grateful as we are to have a roof over our heads we would love to have the money for a deposit to rent our own house as my mothers flat is not somewhere we as a new family can call home. We are not in a position to take out a loan from the bank as both our credit histories are poor due to making stupid decisions in the past which we both always look back on with regret and disappointment.
I am currently doing everything I can to find stable employment and have got an interview lined up however I’ve not been having much luck in the grand scheme of things. Me and my partner do not come from families who are able to help us financially and so can not turn to them.
I am hoping to raise £3000 for a deposit on a property and to buy furniture. It is my goal to provide a decent house for my family and to raise my daughter as well as I can. I am aware that there are probably people out there with more important reasons to be asking for money from strangers however i am writing this in the hope that someone who reads this has once been in the same situation as me and my partner and will be willing to help.
Thank you for reading this post and if you do donate I will be forever grateful.
My small family is in need of help. Due to hour cuts at his job my partner wasnt able to pay the rent that is due. I’m stay at home with two daughters. I am currently looking for work to be able to help more financially. We dont have a vehicle so it is difficult to get back and forth. My partner works over night and a good sum of money goes to cabs and ubers just to make sure he gets to work. Our rent isnt very high and we dont make that much money. But we had enough to cover bills until these recent hour cuts. We live paycheck to paycheck sometimes only having enough food to just feed our children days before payday. Neither of us have any family that can help at the moment. Im truely in need I dont want to have my children worry. I dont want them to be homeless. We need 275 dollars to be able to pay the rent. Please Im very sorry to ask but please please help us. My children are young but they are becoming wiser everyday and are noticing our money problem they even asked if they could sell their toys for food money. It broke my heart. I have been to several interviews lately and havent landed a job. Its so easy to feel hopeless and want to give up but i cant I have to get my girls out of this bad situation. With only one imcome and no vehicle we can not afford child care. It makes it difficult to find a job so I can work opposite hours of their father. We have been evicted before and it was a nightmare i never want to relive. But this time we will have no where to go my last close sibling has recently moved out of state and cant help right now and we arent close to my husbands family at all. Im so worried and stresses I really dont know what other options I have. Ill be selling things on craigslist but we dont own much worth anything. I dont want to lose my home i dont want to lose my kids. If we lose this apartment i dont even know where else we could possibly rent from that would except our past evictions. Our rent is 740 and 10 dollars for not having renters insurance and 75 more for it being late now thats 825 total we only have about 530 dollars right now. We really need help right now thank you.
Hello. My name is Irene. I am here today asking for some financial help. I am currently looking for about $650. I am married. I’ve been married for 5 months. My husband and I really love each other but it’s really hard for us right now. We have a small apartment and we could barely pay rent. I am late on our electric bill also. It’s been 2 months were the money my husband gets goes to bills only and I haven’t been able to buy food for us. I’ve sold most of my stuff to help my husband pay for some bills. And our bills are not that much because we’re trying to save but it’s still a lot for us Before those 2 months I got fired from my job. I wanted to move up position and because I was asking a lot to see if they could hire me to a better position, they decided to cut my hours slowly until they fired me. I’ve been trying to get a job. Even in places I would probably never look. I’ve always liked retail and I never wanted to work at a fast food place but because I need a job I was looking everywhere. Just that each time I called to check up on my application for a chance for an interview they would tell me that they’re not hiring or to call the following week. I am really scared that we will lose the apartment. I am scared because we know that money is not important in our marriage but it’s still a need to get through life and it could ruin our marriage. Recently I’ve had a lot of stress, anxiety and depression for not being able to get a job. I need help for a little bit until I could get up on my feet again. I hope it is soon and I hope you can help me through this challenge life put in front of me and my husband
Hello, allow me to introduce myself,…
My name is Louise and I’m a 38 year old single mother living alone with my 9 year old autistic son.
I have two teenager daughter’s aswell whom I have tried very hard to provide for with what little I have had but have had to withdraw from their company as they have behaved very volatile towards my son.
I currently have no support at all, the father of my son prefers to pay for drugs rather than his son and does not even care for his sons existence.
I was in a relationship with a man for three years who seemed to accept my son’s disability, that was until I found out he was married. Since I ended the relationship, he has become a monster.
I transport my son to his special school with our car, my ex smashed my rear side lights, the police refused to believe my ex was related to the damage.
He has been caught sat outside my house all night watching my house, he has followed me wherever I have drove to trying to force himself on me, stopping me from leaving.
The police arrested him outside my house a few months ago, I’ve failed to get a restraining order as my solicitors could not locate my ex to serve court papers on him, therefore …I lost.
The next day I had another letter posted by himself through my letterbox stating he’s all of a sudden leaving to go and live in Thailand with this woman he’s now marrying. But he still texts me either calling me a ‘fat slag’ or that ‘he will always be there for me’.
I’m seeing a counselor to help me after the effect this has had on me. I feel trapped and I’m very miserable. My son is seeing mum sad all the time and I don’t feel like I’m being a good mum at all. I don’t know where to turn, I simply have no one…but I’m desperate to move as far away and start afresh. I recently visited hull and with all the Art surrounding the city centre I felt a sudden spark of enthusiasm to go back to college and do something with my life that will probably make me feel like I am living and not existing miserably.
Being on benefits with no guarantor, I have little chance of escaping Derby into private housing in Hull. If I can provide a few months rent in advance I have a better chance to move my son and I.
Please if someone can help, I’m desperate, I just want to be a happy mother to my son, I can see it’s affecting him seeing me in tears all the time
Hey! I’m Jon, and those are my cats, Wilson and Magnus. I’m a disabled Scottish student surviving on my student loan, as finding a job has been impossible for me so far. It’s hard enough to even get to the interview stage with so little job experience, and due to my autism, when I do get an interview I tend to be too quiet and nervous for anyone to want to hire me.
I have depression, anxiety, PTSD and arthritis among other disorders that make day-to-day living difficult and stressful. This makes me even more nervous for what the future might hold re: trying to keep a job.
In December 2015 I fled an abusive household with almost nothing to my name as my abuser constantly used up the savings I had. I was only able to get somewhere to live thanks to the help of my university, and have been meticulously saving up as much money as possible since then. Unfortunately, I can’t exist like this forever.
As it stands, I have enough money to last the summer until I start getting my student loan again. However, I get £675 a month; my rent is £500 a month, my bills are about £100, travel is roughly £50, feeding and caring for my cats (which I need for my mental health) is about £20 a month. That leaves me with £10 for groceries to last a month!
I’m scared for the future. I’m scared that I won’t be able to find a job, that unexpected bills like dentistry and vet bills (Wilson is already in need of kidney surgery and I can’t afford that as it’s £3k at least) will pop up and I won’t be able to pay them. Please, if you can spare anything – even £1 would eventually add up if enough people donated – I’d really appreciate the help.
My paypal is email@example.com . Please help if you can!
We moved to our current home about 2 years ago because it was the only available at the time that had enough room. In those two years we’ve went from filling up the car once a week to three times a week. We use to live 30 minutes round trip(by car) to get to his job, and now it take 2 hours round trip a day. We have one car which we need to take our son to school as well and handling all the daily tasks.
We’ve tried to move closer for a while now, but medical bills almost stop us from saving money. Plus the electricity/water bill rate is outrageous here. We’re a family of four just trying to make it by. My husband works 12 hours a day(hours vary every week), just for us to barely make it by. If we had the money, or someone to watch our daughter during the day, I would be working as well. I try to keep the family close and sane as much as I can.
As I mentioned above we have medical payments (3 a month), and our electricity/water is $500. Our rent is already $460. We barely use anything, and don’t have heat/AC. At least where we’d be moving to it’d be no more than $120. That’s a lot more affordable than what we have dealt with. When we moved here I thought we could handle it, but then my son wasn’t in school.
Now my husband gets laid off two times a year, and unemployment has always took it’s time arriving. We barely make it, and last December without help of some family we wouldn’t have. I know we’re like many other people out there, and I’m using this as a last resort kinda. We’ve helped many people over the years, whether we were doing good, or not. We just really need a little extra help at the moment.
There are many more homes(affordable) available closer to his job now. Having much cheaper monthly bills, will hopefully get us back on track. We’re only looking for $1,200 to cover security deposit, first month’s rent, and to get the electricity/water turned on. If anyone could help, we’d greatly appreciate any donations that are given. I hope sometime soon I can give back, and return the kindness we could/might receive. Thank you, and have a blessed day!
Hi! First of all please excuse my poor english. I will try to make it understandable.
My name is Tobias Bäckström, i live in the beautiful country of Sweden. I am 41 years old and i have three kids. I also have my little Alfred-angel, Affe for short, he died just two weeks before his second birthday due to two severe cases of pneumonia and a birth defect to his heart. He was borned with congenital “transposition of the great vessels” wich basicly means that his heart was pumping backwards, kinda. You can read more about it, just google it. My wife at the time (marrige got screwed when wife found love with the neighbour), just my luck, started a blog just to tell the story. You can read it here (use google translate) http://affe09.bloggplatsen.se/
Anyway, since his death, I have struggled with depression, loss of job therefore and totally broke down in april of 2013 in something we call “fetigue syndrom”, don’t know the english word for it. So many things happening building up to this blow, i just stopped functioning and could’nt work, nor take care of my three children. I tried, and i struggled, trying to make ends meet. Now I am much better, still missing my boy, taking to a shrink once a week trying to fix that loss.
Anyway, this ordeal, though struggeling with the monthly payments, taking a couple of loans here and there just to pay the bills (stupid really, but what can one do?). I have managed so far, living on the edge, havent been able to do anything else but paying the bills, but now I don’t really know what to do! There are many holes to fill. I found this site by accident and thought, though I hate begging for money or lending, why not give it a try.
I am trying to reach out to all you a little richer than me, please begging you to help me coping with this. I don’t ask for much, anything really!
Hi , basically after being made redundent i decided to try and start my own business as a removal , delivery man . bought a van and some tools and got all the relevant insurance and was good to go . i have been working really hard but as my business is only new the jobs are few and far between despite advertising continuously .during the last 6 months all of my redundancy has gone on rent and insurance for the van . then the van broke and that cost me 600 to fix . then i didnt have a job for 2 weeks . then when i did get a job that was going to pay £30 the van wouldnt start and that cost me another 200 to get it fixed. meanwhile my overdraft is increasing in my bank and they are charging me a monthly fee and everything is getting on top of me . if i cant sort this out im going to lose my flat and my business . i could sell my van but its a banger and i need it to try and earn money . also as i have a business i cant get any benefits from the government . im really struggling now and really need help to get out of my £2000 overdraft ( increasing daily ). that would help as it would mean i wouldnt be getting extra charges every month . obviously i need more . i am confident in the future when my business is better established i will survive but at the minute i am drowning and cant see the surface
I am the proud mother of 3 amazing children. Well to start I’ll tell y’all I’m trying to come up with $645 to cover the rest of the rent and electric and late fees. Now for the back story :-) I recently moved with my friend to Texas a state I’ve never been but she had friends there and I wanted the warm weather for my arthritis. We both had just left abusive relationship. I madeg arrangements to transfer within my job. This is where it goes south. Well first my job was in the process of a merge therefore my paperwork got messed up and I was listed as quitting. It took a month to fix and start me working. Then right after getting here my transmission went out. After all that my hopes were still high cause I was splitting the bills with my friend. Well so I thought. I left to try and find a second job in hopes of getting ahead and my friend packed her car and left a note. She was moving back to Cali to be with her abusive ex. Leaving me stuck in a newly signed lease and having to cover back and current rent and electric. I still have to keep going tho and smiling the whole way for my kids. So I am currently walking to and from work, 12 miles round trip. Which is fine on my way to work in the day but a tad scary at 3am when I’m off. I still plan on getting ahead and ultimately being happy but some days I feel like the universe is against me. I wonder if anyone will answer my cry and not try to scam me or if I’ll be lucky enough that someone sees my story and answers my many prayers. I’ve always had great work ethic and if I needed extra money I would place an add for cleaning but without a car that hasn’t work( I’ve tried). Then I get mad at myself for letting this happen but soon realize I never planned for this and having kids leaves me no choice but to keep trying and one day soon when I’m back on top I’m gonna help those people like me. Hard working, down on their luck and have been shut down everywhere they go. Thank you for reading my story and I am a real person that lives in Texas at 8506 Wakefield dr #62w San Antonio 78216 in a apartment complex nothing fancy but a great community just looking for a little blessing in disguise :-) :-)
This is a picture of my beautiful grandson. The reason for our very being, our only source of joy at the moment. It has been a long, hard road.
Firstly, let me explain our circumstances. I have been a single mother for years. My daughters are now adult, but they have also had their trials. My youngest daughter got a diagnosis of Coeliac Disease a couple of years ago. She has just gone back to college after her initial illness wrecked her “A” Levels. She hopes to become a vet or at least work in the veterinary profession. My eldest daughter got a late diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome (aged 22 to be exact!) She is the mother of this beautiful little boy pictured here. She was in an abusive relationship and can no longer have a relationship with the baby’s father, due to the danger he poses to them (not that she wants to be with him anymore) he contributes nothing to his son’s upkeep, moral support or otherwise. She works hard on minimum wage as a carer for the elderly and doing a fantastic job raising her son, my grandson.
Two years ago, we had to sell the former marital home. As I didn’t earn enough to get a mortgage, and I certainly didn’t get equity to buy anywhere new, we now live in rented accomodation. To start with, we could well afford it. We had my cousin living with us, the baby’s father at the time, so we could afford the upkeep. My cousin decided to move out two weeks before renewal date of the tenancy, not giving us enough time to find somewhere smaller, nor indeed a pet friendly home. My dogs are my personal companions. Being single myself, they give me the unconditional love I don’t get elsewhere.
I have worked hard all my life, but because of the people who have moved out, it falls to just me and my eldest daughter to keep it going.
I eventually found a great job, working for a nursery run by a charity. Sadly have been ill for two weeks with acute sinuitis and stress. I do not get sick pay. I am so worried we will not make the rent for the end of the month.
We are struggling with heating costs and barely eat ourselves, as long as my gorgeous grandson and the dogs eat properly, I am ok. We do not want to be potentially homeless. Myself, my daughters and my grandson have been through enough already.
We are trying to apply for help from our local authority, but this could take up to 8 weeks to sort out. We do not want to go behind with our rent. It is a private tenancy and private landlords are far less understanding.
I have never done anything like this before. We are proud women who do not want to rely on charity, but pride has to go out of the window if, potentially, your nearest and dearest could be out on the street. We want to remain together for as long as possible. We have been through so much together and love eachother very much. However, the stresses of late have caused lots of fights and angst. We want our harmonious family back again.
I hope you would consider giving us help at this very stressful and emotional time. Things are so precarious and we do everything for the little man pictured here. I just want a cup of tea in the evenings, in a warm house with my family by my side and our dogs. And enough to eat and to be able to afford our bills and rent.
Thank you in advance for taking the trouble to read our story.
My name is Marian Achim, i’m 24 year old man, and i’m from Romania.
This is my last resort, I have tried with friends, family, even strangers. I don’t wish to turn to loan sharks. Hopefully i won’t have to. You see, everything started one fateful day, when i met someone online. Someone who would later change my life entirely. Someone who fell in love with me, just as fast i fell in love with her. That’s right. Online relationship. Now, i didn’t actually think it would get this far(planning to propose/marry her), but slowly, we grew so attached, that the first thing we do when we get home, is turn on our computers, and be with eachother, until fatigue gets the best of us, and even then, the poor adorable, unicorn pajama wearing girl falls asleep, and I.. I can’t just leave.. I can’t just hang up, and say good night.. I just stare at her blissful sleep, occasionally ruined by a gentle snore. But i digress. The reason i fell into this predicament is relatively simple. I did not anticipate my ending up in the hospital 2 weeks before her arrival. You might be wondering, how is that relevant to your request?
Well. It began like this, (and i will keep it as brief as possible):
Earlier this year(May 5th), my father died. I did not live with him, i lived with my mother, hundreds of miles away, in a small house that wasn’t even ours. It was the house of a mean disgruntled cousin she had. In that house for 6 years, my mother and I were glorified housekeepers, who were promised ownership of the house after 2 years of stay, but of course that never came. So, with the news of my father’s death, i gathered all my savings, amounting to a total of 120 Euros, and I left for the funeral. I was not so well received there by my aunts, who never liked my mother.. As a side note, please believe me when I tell you, this “family” is straight from a soap opera. I’m not kidding. Should you decide to contact me for further information, or even if you want to hear more of my “misadventures” do not hesitate to contact me at the mentioned email. Considering the weather was dreadful that day, and my father was found in an advanced decomposed state, they decided to rush the funeral. Few people were there, mostly friends and family, but then again, my father was always.. unique, and extremely capable of pushing away people. All this time, my girlfriend was with me, supporting me morally, and even financially. Months passed, and i got very little inheritance money from my father, as the only thing he possessed was a small patch of land outside the village. I managed to sell it eventually, but the money flew away faster than i could make some. The total amount i got from the sale was roughly 1400 Euros. And that is before i had paid the taxes needed to sell, and other procedures.. Also, during my stay here, i have not lived a day under my father’s roof because my aunts denied me. Even when the police got involved they shouted at the top of their lungs, that i have no place there, and that i should disappear(as i said soap opera). I stayed at my friend’s houses for the whole time here. Yes friends from school and highschool. Back to our horses. I am currently waiting for my girlfriend, who is supposed to arrive in 5 days. That’s right, 5 days. Meeting the love of my life in 5 days.. And i have no roof over my head. Yes. That is the reason i so desperately need 250 euros or dollars.. I’ve lost all hope. Truly. The money is needed for rent, and some food, until i can get myself back together. Please, if you can, Help me out…. I know I maybe have no right to do this, and i am sure that there are other people who need help out there, but please, find it in your heart to help me out of this predicament. Please..
Hello, my name is natasha. My life started out rough losing my father and licing with a single mother who was with other men who were in and out of my life. The man she got married to ruined our lives.. by the age of 5 I experienced what it was like to starve, with my step dad and mom in the other room doing cracking all day and my sister and other kids bullying me because I couldn’t afford anything and my sisters father took care of all her needs. It went this way till the age of 13 and they had divorced and I was homeless on the streets by myself because my mom was too into drugs to face the reality of having a child. I did alot of stuff. Drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, sex. I was in and out of homes every night and I couldn’t even get an education. I tried but I was just too messed up in the head worrying about where I was gonna sleep the next night. The winters were cold and long. The summers were hot and dangerous. It wasn’t till about the age of 17 that cps had gotten involved and a famity member of mine finally decided to step in. It was hard going from a hard life to everything I ever needed. Clothes, shelter, food, water. I was so grateful. And I luckily never formed any addiction because I grew up seeing everyone around me in my life misrable. I wanted to be different I want to be somebody. And I’m working hard everyday to do so. Im 18 now no longer under cps. I’m currently in a rough situation and Im staying with my grandfather who I would have never expected to help me. My family disowned me for a reason I’ll never know. Maybe because they looked down on my mom and thought I would be just like her. My grandfather will be kicking me out soon because he’s taking care of his aunt who is ill. I’m working at a part time job making 9$ an hour and getting 14 hr shifts and currently applying for other jobs in the process. I need help honestly and I don’t know where to turn. I have no one. I can’t bare the thought of being homeless again and it’ll only be in the matter of time before I am.
Hi everyone. I feel quite uncomfortable asking for money in this way but it really is my last resort. I live in private rented accommodation with my 2 children, a 10 year old daughter and 2 year old son. I had always worked bringing up my daughter and had intended to return to work after my maternity leave had finished after having my son. This didn’t happen, I was effectively bullied out of going back there by my employers wife. I don’t want to run people down over the Internet but a lot of very spiteful comments were made about my appearance and that I was like a little mouse. After months of stress I decided there was no possibility I could continue to work there as it was a family run business and therefore no one that you could really make a complaint to that was impartial. I have no family to lend this money from as the only person I was close to who could have was my Grandad who passed away this year after a short 5 month cancer battle. So I have been left literally alone with my 2 children, I went to the doctor after he died because I felt I could not cope and was placed onto a years course of citalopram 20mg for extreme anxiety, as I am a worrier and tend to obsess over very small things. After the death of my Grandad, I then found out I had pre cancerous cells on my cervix which I had lasered and was given the all clear. I also suffer terribly with back and am currently being prescribed 60mg dihydrocodiene for acute pain. These chain of events have lead to me being unable to work for longer than I had hoped and I have fell behind with my rent by 2 months and if I can’t find this soon my children and I will be at risk of eviction. My rent is £625 a month so I am £1250 behind. I would be truly grateful to anyone for any help they can offer and would be more than happy to pay it back in installments. Thank you for reading.
well it all started when i had to leave my job after being in to much pain as i have a brain tumour so funds got low but we were keeping on top as best we could.
suddenly my friend with her disabled three year old son became homeless escaping an abusive relationship, so we offered her and a son a place to stay to be nice thinking it be only a month or even if it was a little longer she start getting her benefit money by then so we could get through. sadly she wasn’t paying anything towards shopping or bills and i would have to argue with her just to get a little bit even though she was getting lot of benefit money. She wasn’t even looking after her own son the poor thing, i was the one changing him and feeding him and entertaining him and she would sleep all day. it was really hard for me as the stress made the pain from my tumour a lot worse as i was trying to do everything including looking after my own daughter who needs extra help herself, what made matters worse is when i would leave the room she would bullying my daughter causing my daughter to have mental breakdowns who is only seven. she even became abusive to my daughter and when i found out i kicked her out to keep my daughter safe. sadly again after i kicked her out the bills and debt letters came piling in, she had the cheek to run up debt in my name, she would call multiply men’s mobile numbers of my house phone for hours when i wasn’t in the house, she ran up my gas and electric through the roof as she would never turn anything off and for some stupid reason ran my shower every time she went to the toilet so no one heard her which put my gas bill up over £150 extra a week because she also turn the heating on any chance she got too. in the end i tried to contact her to get the funds of her but she claims she shouldn’t have to pay and as its all in my name is it a bit difficult to get the court involved.
so in a lot of debt i had no choice but to start selling whatever expensive stuff we had and even then the next month we would be back to struggling. now its either my daughter eats dinner or we pay rent and so far i feel that this is so unfair for her. she suffered from the hands of an evil woman and now she still suffering because of her because of the debt she left behind because its either she starves or she loses her home. it makes me depressed that i went out my way to help a so called friend and did everything for her and her son and yet i’m the one stuck with the debt, i’m the one whose daughter is now trying to get back to normal, i’m the one with the pain from the stress she left me in and what about her nothing she gets to go into a nice new house that the council have given her with people still falling for her lies and cons.
I mean I’ve tried everything to get funding so far and nothing works, i mean i can not even do cash in hand jobs on the days i might feel up for it as i just had an operation so it’s hard for me to even leave my house right now, so i’m feeling really helpless right now. all i have left is search the internet and this is where I’ve ended up begging for money which i really wish it didn’t come to this because there are a lot of people out there needing help more then me but if there were just a hand few of nice people willing to donate i can keep the roof over my daughters head and start trying to make her life as normal as it could be.
So please help me raise the money for rent and cover some of this debt. i’m asking for £2000 but of course even just a few hundred could help out right now. I hope if your reading this you could donate or even spread the word because i really don’t want to see me and my daughter out on the streets right after Christmas. this might not seem as important to some people but please this is important to me and a little seven year old who’s only problem should be school not wondering if she going to be starving and cold. thank you for taking the time to read this.

Dear Sir/ Madam
I am writing to you today with such a heavy heart. I have fallen on such a crippling issue in these final months of 2016. I understand everyone can end up needing help, and i wish i had the means to help. But at this point in my life, i am the one needing assistance. I lost my full time job in September, and have had such a difficult time finding a new job to support my family with. My wife is such a supportive woman, as well as being one of my reasons to keep going everyday. She stays home with our three, amazing kids, who if not for them i may not be here. i was a devilish child involving myself in drugs, jail, and breaking as many laws as i could. I gave up that life for my kids, i couldnt bear to have them see me in jail. Aside from speeding tickets, i havent had any illegal involvment with breaking laws, and i am now 38. Unfortunately at this time i am unable to obtain government assistance for food, or money. And with tears in my eyes, and a feeling of such disgust. I am not able to give my family a christmas at all, no food to feed them, no money to pay any bills, purchase parts to fix our only vehicle, and no tree, nor presents to give my kids (Darron-17, Raven-19, Brandon-13, and Victoria-5) My heart hurts so bad this year its almost unbearable. I am not asking for the holidays to grace me with anything at all, but please grace my family with the donations to help with the bills, food, gifts, that will be my gift if i can see my family have an enjoyable christmas, my wifes dissability has not been approved and we are so down and out, i have no other options to speak of and am lost thinking my family will be on the streets, cold and hungry unless we get some help soon.
Thank you for your time and consideration
I’m writing this to ask for help, which is an extremely hard thing to do as some of you may know already. This is sort of my last resort, my last glimmer of hope for a better life and a better me. What I hope to gain from this fundraiser is enough money to cover board for an entire year. Let me tell you a little bit about me and explain to you why I need board for a year:
Note: I don’t feel comfortable sharing my real name and the real names of the people involved in this story, so for these purposes the names have been changed for privacy reasons.
I was born in a small town in New Zealand to my mother, Ellie. It was just me and her as my biological father had left before I was born for another women. Growing up we lived in poverty. My mother would work very hard to make sure that ends were met and that we both had the basics to survive. As I got older I realised that something was missing in my life and that was all to do with not having a father.
When I turned eight, my mother married my step-dad, Devon. I was overjoyed with this because I was finally getting a father, something that I’d always wanted in life. But, Devon turned out to be emotionally abusive to both me and my mother. He would go through cycles were he’d be normal and nice and then he’d emotionally abuse the both of us for a long length of time.
This was especially hard on me because he’d be normal and nice and I’d forgive him because I’d always wanted a father, then he’d abuse me and I’d be extremely hurt. This cycle continued for ten years up until I was eighteen. It was at this stage that my mother had had enough and she finally kicked him out of the house.
Through ages eight – eighteen I had a feeling of complete hopelessness from my home situation, which led to depression and anxiety when I was twelve. This went on for a further seven years without getting help. It gradually got worse and worse as the years went by. Once my step-dad got kicked out, I left school to focus on getting better and it was at this point that I went to see a doctor to get help. She proscribed me with antidepressants and I’m now gradually getting better but it’s a very slow process as there’s so much emotional trauma that I’ve been through.
My mother is now a single mother who is trying to provide for not just me, but also my two half-siblings. I’d like to help out, but I don’t feel like I’m ready to work as of yet. I need time to process everything that’s happened to me so far in my life. I need time to heal both mentally and emotionally and I don’t think working is going to make that any easier. So what I’m asking of you today is money that I can give to my mother to help cover my end of living expenses for a year, so everything is much easier on her and me.
If you have any loose change it’d be deeply appreciated. This is something that’s very hard for me to do as already said above. Especially as a guy; it’s very hard to ask for help.
I’d just like to thank everyone in advance who donates.
Thanks and God bless, Rami.
Hello, I’m writing because I need assistance with my bills. I’m a single father, with no resources available. I have fought to keep up but have fell behind, I have tried to raise not only my daughter but my disabled brother. I know this may be falling on deaf ears, or may some how get mixed up with the other letters of those who are needy, my only prayer is that this actually works. I’ve been trying hard to keep the little family I do have together but it isn’t working, this is my last hope if things don’t work this time I have no choice but to leave where i am and give up . I hate this feeling and know in reality I’m probably going to have to move. But know that if that happens I’m going to leave for good. I’m going to give up my Brother and child and that will be it. I just wanted to try to get things together to no avail, I’m tired of failing while others prosper I’m tired of being behind while others succeed. I k ow it is wrong to look at others prosper and wish you were the how else am I supposed to feel ? I don’t know but I do know that I’ve tried more times than anyone. I know one cares and this letter will be lost among many but let is be stated I at least tried . When I die I at least want happiness that is where I am now I just wish if things can’t get better let me die I’m tired of failing tired of fighting a lost cause hoping my battle is over. I get it, iknow some where meant to be poor others were not. I don’t want to be a failure, or just someone with a million tries. I want to be a winner, I want to have beautiful things but that is not for me . I’m meant to struggle I guess I use to believe in all these other things now I’m not sure. I don’t know that if there is a higher being that we would have to suffer like this. I do t know how long this was supposed to be. I’m not e en certain this will be read if so by that time I’ll either be homeless or dead but if you do happen to read this just know above all things I tried. I fought and lost I only hope that my daughter doesn’t end up the same . A looser, begging for handouts, I hope that through it all whatever happens she becomes greater than me. She becomes a better person and .ugh strong get than myself I feel like Apostle Paul I fought a good fight, kept the faith, finished my course. Now my work is over i will loose my home, church, and all that is dear to me from helping and being to dumb to realize I was born a failure, and that is all I will ever be. I guess that is about it.
Please, I’m desperate, and I really don’t know what else to do.
My roommate and I shared a small apartment for about a year, and we’ve never had any problems with each other or our landlord, but two weeks ago she just… packed up while I was at work and took the rent and utilities money we keep in the apartment and ran off God knows where. I’ve been trying to reach her ever since, but I keep getting the “user you are trying to reach is not available” message every time I call her cell phone, she isn’t replying my emails, and her Facebook account hasn’t been posted on since she ran off. None of our mutual friends and acquaintances have any idea where or why she left, either, and I cannot find her anywhere.
Now it’s the 1st, the October rent is due, the bills are gonna start coming in soon, and I only have €150 left. I need another €500 to cover rent, bills, and still have enough money left for food and public transportation (I don’t own any vehicles). My landlord said he’ll give me until the 7th to gather the money for the rent… but he also said that, if I can’t pay, I have to go. I don’t have any family left, and I’ve asked my friends for help, but none of them have enough room to take me in until I can bounce back or enough money to loan me even a part of the sum I need. Taking out a loan from a bank is not an option either, as I recently lost my job. I’m trying to earn some money doing freelance work online (ghost-writing at $0.01 an hour), but I’ve only just started, and it’s going pretty slow.
Please, every little bit helps, and if you can’t donate but still wish to help, you could share a link to my Ask on your social media. Or, if you need a ghost-writer and you like my prices, I could send you some work samples and, if you like them, you could hire me. I’m very non-discriminatory when it comes to topics, I’m not afraid of doing extensive research, and I can do the job fairly quickly
Thank you in advance,
When I was a little girl I had imagined my life turning out much differently than it has. That’s not to say i’m not thankful because I truly am. I just imagined being a little more financially stable. Maybe finishing college of finding a purpose. Life has definitely been filled with obstacles. When I was eight my parents divorced and my mom decided it would be best to move on rather quickly. She began clubbing while I waited in the car for her to come take care of me. She eventually met a man in the club that would and has changed my life forever. Shortly after my mom presued a more serious relationship with the man he began to touch me very inappropriately I was nine at this time. Not so long after things progressed for the worst. By the time I was twelve he was fully raping me. This consistently happened for six years. I had a baby due to the rape and was forced to quite high school. I refused to let that drag me down and went after my GED. I dont regret my daughter she is a blessing out of a bad situation. Unfortunately like in many situations my mom walked in on he rape and instead of kicking him out or calling the police she made me keep it quite. Once I realized the one person that was supposed to protect me didn’t my world was in complete disarray. At that moment I vowed I woulx not let my daughter endure such horror I escaped as quickly as possible. Altough I feared for my life I knew at this moment I had to be strong no matter the consequences. I contacted my aunt and uncle and they rescued me from the home. I had nothing to my name not even a bottle but yet I was able to find joy but I couldn’t help but feel betrayed and alone. I had to stay strong for my daughter even though I had no idea what I was financially going to do. In 2013 we finally went to trial where he was convictedand sentenced 37 years in prison. I now have a wonderful husband and three beautiful little girls. I’m on disability because I suffer from PTSD due to the abuse. I hope to oneday overcome this and not be a victim but instead be victorious. My husband works his hands to the bone but barely makes enough for us to get by week to week. Back in December our home got robbed and we were forced to move in with my in laws. As grateful as I am we are in a three bedroom double wide with ten people very tight quarters as i’m sure you can imagine. We had began saving what we could to get a home but then our car broke and took evey penny we had saved to fix. I am desperate and have no where else to turn. My oldest daughter is autistic and needs a stable atmosphere. We have no furniture or anything which one needs to even rent a home . I can count the nights I stay up crying wishing I could do more. I would be sincerely grateful for any help. I want to provide my children with a great future full of opportunities . Once again any and all help will be ttremendously appreciated.
Bless you all,
My name is Edijs and I from Latvia (East Europe country). I am police officer and lonely father for my two small kids. We urgently need 800 euros, it is about 770 pounds, for pay flat rent and get out of debts. We have not any other way, to resolve our problem. In my country I can`t get such financial help.
I`m police officer almost 15 years. I have two small kids – Adrian 7 years old and Adelina 3 years old. We living in small flat (apartment area is only 37m2). My monthly income is about 500 euros. Unfortunately, we also have a loan € 5000, so all my salary is not enough to pay all bills.
I try to do my best and working hard, but that You probably know, if You are police officer get money from somewhere else it`s not possible, thats why, all my salary goes to bills.
People in my town not reach, my couple friends have family of their own, so at the moment I have no chances to get help from someone else.
Until this moment I can pay my bills and flat rent, but couple months ago I paid 900 euros for flat repair (we had problems with the water and heating system), so for pay next bills I have no more money.
If we don`t find this amount, we will lose the flat where we are living.
p.s. I asked for help in many places and foundations, unfortunately no one help us so far. No prepaid from me, so fraudsters please do not disturb
When I was a fresh college graduate, I was excited about what my future would hold; and I was ready to execute any plan that pushed me to becoming an English Teacher quickly and effortlessly. Yet after two years of e-mailing principals, attending job fairs, hand delivering resumes to principals, and gaining top-notch recommendations, I was passed over for the other guy. So while I waited, I was a substitute and taught at preschools. However, subbing stops for summer and the preschool obtained new management. Now, restaurants, retails stores, and fast food places won’t put me on their payroll.
Since no one in my college town wanted to hire me, I visited my mom in another state for the summer. Within two weeks, I had a job! Sadly, getting a job does not mean I instantly get money.
So I just need help with my rent. I have this month to pay and one more month until my lease is up. Once it is up, I am moving in with my mom, so I can start decreasing my debts. :)
Please help. I am asking for a miracle, because all my other resources have been washed out.
I normally wouldn’t do this type of thing, but I’m out of options. I have already did loans with my vehicles as collateral. I lost my job March 3rd 2016. I do work now but nowhere near as much income as I had. I have a baby on the way and my lady is now off till he is born. My rent is 750. I just ask for this one time help to get out of trouble. Just don’t know what else to do. I have 4 young ladies under our roof as well. Please help.
Hello I’m a 19 year old girl freshman in college and struggling. I Was recently kicked out of my parents home with my brother. We have part time jobs (currently looking for another one) to get a place of our own. We recently found a place where we can afford rent, but they ask for a 1,600 deposit and first month rent. We can get the money but it will take us some time and we really don’t want to let the opportunity pass us so we kindly ask for anyone’s help if they could donate a couple bucks to our cause. We just want a permanent place to stay. Thank you for anyone that is helping us it really means so much to us. God Bless
Greetings and thank you for having the time to actually read this.
I’m not going to lie to you in any means necessary and can prove my credibility from everything I type here at any time and at any given place. I just hope there are somewhat good people out there who are willing to help cause I’m helping my whole life and doing good deeds and in return I get smacked in the face from life every day numerous of times.
First of all I’d like to ask you about understanding my situation. I never had a childhood that I could remember since my dad and mom had their own bakery which they worked hard to achieve their goals. Me and my brother were usually at home alone with no one to accompany us. As the year progressed we got older but we were still unable to buy ourselves a home cause lonesharks collected their debts and our family left shattered for many, many years. Right now we are currently living 45 years in rental places (I’m 23 years old so I’m living the exactly as my age) and never had any place to call home. I’m not a typical guy who begs for money but any help would be appreciated. I’m originally from Croatia and I am currently living here, the price of a rental place for me and my family is 400$ per month, I’m currently working but only getting paid 150$ since that’s how it works at least for my job, my dad is working 32 years as a baker and I’m not sure how much he can keep up working 15 hours a day for almost his entire life time. He’s also becoming I’ll and my brother is unable to find a job with 24 years of being old, he literally sended out 400 mails and requests for a job but none wants him (and nothing is wrong with him). My mother is a house wife and she can’t get a job cause most of the jobs require age 30 to 40, anything above is just waste of time for employers.
Please all I’m asking is a donation to help us endure the hard times we’ve been our entire lives. I’m not asking 5 million dollars I’m asking for a decent amount and maybe one day when we get the basic needs for life I can repay you. If someone decided to tell me that I should work harder in my life and be blessed for having what I have right now: all I have to say to you is that you’ve never been in my skin and that you probably wouldn’t last few weeks if you were in my position.

Hi my name is Kim and I am 60 years old. I am a graduate student and I need help with paying my bills. How I got in this dilemma is a hard story to tell,but to make it short I was married in February 2015 my husband (former Marine) left me without any money to support myself. I was a half-time student and had no idea that this was going to happen which has affected my life in the worst ways. I have been actively seeking work for the last 2 years and will start a job in February 2016 but now my husband has had my car repossessed so I am unable to get to work. But I am praying that things will happen to help me get a car. I live alone and have no help with rent $550 and utilities are 250 and I have no income for food or a car. I was living off savings from tax and financial aid refunds but as of December those are all gone. If I could get money to get keep me sustained and get a car then I should be good after April with making ends meet. I thank anyone for reading this and reaching out to help me during this time of need.
My name is Adam and I am 28 years old. I currently reside in the basement of a two-family home where I only pay 550/month with all utilities included. I am four months behind in rent (five when March hits) and I’ve been threatened to be evicted. The reason I’ve survived here as long as I have is because I have a landlady who is 81 years old and I’ve been doing odd jobs around the house to earn my keep. Patience is wearing thin because I’ve already done everything there is to do of value and she is ready to toss me out. With her mercurial personality at 81 she can snap at any moment. I have also tried to get help from social services and they gave me a small, one-time payment, but that is all they will do.
In total I need 2750 to get caught up on my rent. That’s five times 550/month. I’m not even mentioning all my the other debt I’ve accrued via credit cards and medical expenses. That would put the total over 10k. I also owe 550 to my father, who is living off social security, but spotted me one of the previous months and he is on me like white on rice to pay him back despite the predicament I’m in.
I’ve worked hard my whole life battling through epilepsy and severe social anxiety and depression, and tried to get a job but never was able to hold one over a week. I have had two brain surgeries and still have severe head pain and headaches. I get very nervous in public even if I’m with family or people I know.
If you are able to give even a little your help would be beyond greatly appreciated. A little goes a long way and what goes around does come back around. If you are able to help and are looking to pay it forward you would be saving me from the brink of disaster.
Thank you and God Bless.
This year has been very hard. I have been made redundant twice, both times due to the economic slowdown here. The first time it took me just over three months to find work and now it’s been two months and I’ve not yet found a job. I have two prospects that seem positive after weeks of not even getting replies, but the two have both said they will likely not make a final decision till after the Christmas break and in the new year.
The job I found this year was a pay cut from previous jobs I’ve had and with a wife and four kids (aged between 2 and 15) costs have been high, even though we are not a family to spend money unnecessarily. We buy a lot of clothes on eBay and tend to only get things in big sales. We had to replace the washing machine in the middle of the year too. The credit card has been at limit all year.
At the moment I need about $4,000 to cover rent and groceries till early January so I can secure one of these jobs and get earning again. Please help us stay in our home.
Please, please help me. I have a shortfall of $450 for my Dec rent. I lost my job as a Pharmacist on Jun 28, 2015 because of the mania from my Bipolar I Disorder, and because of my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Now my Employment Insurance (Disability) has run out and my Canadian Pension Plan Disability payments won’t start for at least 6 weeks. And my landlord is getting impatient.
If I lose the house, I will have to give up my beloved dogs and what’s the use of continuing then?
I have had a run of bad luck since 2009. In that year my first 3 dogs all died. Then in 2010 I quit my job at Shoppers Drug Mart in Burlington, Ontario, Canada and started my own drugstore June 2010. It was firebombed and totally gutted 1 week before our 4 month anniversary. Then 11 months later I was robbed at gunpoint at the store. I had 9 months of PTSD – short term memory loss and anxiety. It now recurs whenever I am stressed.
I sold the store in Apr 2012, and ended up $500,000 in debt. I worked 2 jobs (one with a 1-2 hours commute) 25-27 days/month, trying to pay off the debt, and renovate my house so I could sell it. Selling price would have paid off my debts and still have left me with $50,000 left over. But I lost both jobs in Feb 2014, was 6 weeks without an income. Then in Apr 2014 I got a new full-time job, but the bank called in my Home Equity Line of Credit and I lost my house. I moved back in with my parents (at age 47) and had to kennel my dogs (big bucks) because they didn’t want them in their house.
I had a car accident in Jul 2014, and while I was in the hospital my parents gave away 2 of my dogs. Then 1 month later they told me I had to move out and they wouldn’t help me monetarily. I ended up in a motel in the town I worked in (to the tune of $1900/month). Then saw the rent-to-own house, and got it by using my car as collateral and putting $5000 down plus agreeing to pay an extra $1000/month for 10 months as part of the down payment ($2550/month total). 8 months of happiness, and I even got 1 of my dogs back, but then I lost my job.
I have applied to 22 jobs and heard back from none, no doubt because I have no reference for the time I worked Apr 13, 2014 to Jun 28, 2015, and since then to the present.
My mom has been lending me money but she is running out and she is away till Dec 18th on a 32 day cruise. Did I mention my father is rich but won’t help me at all?
I hope you can help me to pay the rest of my Dec rent.
I am a 37-year-old man who is God fearing, fun loving and hard working who prides himself on being a good human being dad and a phenomenal dad.
Thirteen years ago I dated a woman and we had a son. This woman ran off with my son and I searched for them both relentlessly for years. I finally found her on Facebook (last year) and told her I forgave her for keeping my son away from me. She then allowed me to talk to my son as often as I liked. We talked daily & hours for months and our father and son bond grew exponentially. I resided in another state and made plans to travel to meet him for the first time.
During our conversations my son told me things that led me to believe he was being neglected and his mother was on drugs. Suddenly I was told by his mother not to call again due her boyfriend being jealous. I begged and pleaded with her to no avail.
I spoke to a relative of hers and my suspicions of her drug use and my son being neglected were confirmed. I immediately called Children Protective Services to report the incidents that I was aware of.
My son was removed from the home and placed in the care of his mother’s relative who is elderly. I was told that to obtain custody of my son I would have to take a series of nonstop classes and visit once per week with him under the supervision of Child Protective Service to “establish” a bond.
I totally uprooted myself from my home state leaving everything behind. I was required by Child Protective Services to become a resident in their state and also prove that I could take care of my son. In order to do that I had to obtain an apartment, job, and vehicle to travel to the weekly classes and visits. I also had to pass numerous drug tests, which I did, including hair follicles and undergo many psychological evaluations.
During this process his mother failed several drug tests and did not complete the required classes to regain custody therefore she signed over her rights to my son and the elderly family member caring for him now wants to “ADOPT” him. Needless to say I am fighting tooth and nail to obtain custody of my son. So much so that I am now involved in a nasty court battle.
I started this journey over one year ago and I’m at the end of the road, for the judge’s ruling should be within the next 30 days. So what is my issue? This one year process has drained me financially and my job has been extremely slow for the past 45 days. My hours have been cut short. I had few employer options because the required Child Protective Service classes varied days and times in between the hours of the first and second shift for most jobs and there is very little employment in my field on the night shirt.
I am requesting $1350 to assist me with monthly expenses for the month of December. The breakdown is as follows:
I am a very proud and humble man and it kills me to do this but I realize that this is more for my son than it is for me. My son deserves the best upbringing and stability and that I can provide. Hence, whatever you can spare is alright with me. Thanks for reading and please pray that God grants me favor with the court.
Hello, my name is Judy and I am fifty years old, I have five grand children who live with me. I do not get financial help from anyone and I am struggling to pay my rent.
I used to have a good career and I was financially stable, until my daughter had her first Son. It became apparent early on that she did not possess the maternal gene, in fact it was quite worrying. I used to have the baby in bed with me at night then give him to her when I left for work, I had a two hour commute, when I got home in the evening she would give him straight to me and say he had not stoped crying all day. He would still be in the same baby grow that he had slept in and she always had her friends in my house. No house work would have been done. As the months passed I was becoming exhausted with the sleepless nights and long days at work plus doing all the house work. We started arguing a lot and she moved out with my grandson. Even though she did not live with me, my grandson and I had a very close bond and he would cry for me all the time, I used to still have him every night and drop him to her in the morning on my way to work and keep him every weekend. I changed my job to the local area and took quite a big drop in salary, but felt that I had to so I could collect my grandson earlier in the evening. When I collected him each evening there would be loud music playing, lots of people there and my grandson would be on the floor left to his own devices, sometimes my daughter wouldn’t even be there and he was just left with whoever was there. My daughter never cooked for him, he was fed crisps and other rubbish. I was becoming more and more distressed so I went to see the health visitor and told her what was going on, she said she would do a visit, She did but it was by appointment, not a spot check so of course the house was tidy and nobody was there. When I went to see her to see how the visit went she said she thought my daughter was lovely and doing a great job. Now I will fast forward a few years. My daughter now had three children and I was doing exactly the same thing with all three, having them every night and weekend. The difference now was that the older two boys would scream and cry when they had to go back to her. I was finding it very difficult to concentrate at work and was making silly mistakes, I was also very tearful. I ended up getting the sack and felt so humiliated and ashamed, I had to sign on to unemployment benefit. While I was claiming benefits I took my daughter and her partner to court for custody of the three children. The case lasted about 18 months and was the most stressful time of my life. My daughter and her partner were such good liars, they made me out to be the one who was obsessed with their children and controlling about their upbringing. I probably looked a bit that way because I would get so frustrated with them telling lies and I was the one not being believed. Before the court case my daughters partner would come and go, but during the case they made it look as though they were a very strong couple. Anyway they won the case and the children were returned to them with me being allowed visits every other weekend which was a joke considering that I had always had them every night and every weekend, the children were very upset too. During the case my daughter had two more children. Once the case was over my daughters partner left her for good, we have never seen him again and he has not seen the children. Her life went back to partying, drugs and staying out all night so of course all the children came to live with me. I had to find some way of supporting myself and the children so I spent my savings on two Bulldog puppies with the intention to breed. This has worked out well I have been able to pay my rent and bills. Unfortunately the last two litters I have had did not go so well and I am unable to pay my rent, I know I am going to have to give up my property and become homeless but I would just like to stay here for Christmas for the children. I feel I have gone through so much to give my grandchildren a stable home and now I am going to lose it. It is going to be very traumatic for the children to go back their mum, but I am a very strong woman and I will find another place for us. But in the meantime if anyone could help me with my rent payments and some funds to put all my belonging into storeage while I am homeless I would be forever grateful.
I recently lost my job as a manager, and I’m currently in a lot of debt. £10,000 to be exact. My partner doesn’t know and I’m scared to tell her that we may get evicted. This is causing sleepless nights for myself – I have no form of income. I have £300 left in my bank, and my rent is more than that! She’s noticed that there isn’t any food in the house and the gas isn’t on. I don’t want to let her down. There is no other way out but to beg. This feels wrong, but I love this woman and I can’t live like this anymore! Please help me. Please. I am extremely worried for my future. Even if I can’t raise £10,000 – just a donation towards my home bills would be so appreciated. I feel that there is nothing more that I can do! I’m struggling to find a job. The £10,000 debt started a couple of years ago. I was forced to buy a car because of work commitments, but then the car kept breaking and my savings were slowly disappearing. The insurance on the car was very high, and it cost a fortune to keep on the road. I was soon in an overdraft so I took out a loan to pay it off. Only it got worse. It is a downward spiral and I’m not prepared to lose the woman that I love because of money. Please help me, please please help me
I currently have 3 kids in college at the same time. August 2015, they all started back to school. My son goes to Gwinnett College in the Atlanta Area, another son at FAMU and my daughter at University of Arizona. I have a set of twins, and another son the same age. I have done well in taking care of them, however the costs of college is very expensive. I work hard, and over the last couple of months, in order to get them enrolled in their Sophomore year, I have gotten 2 months behind on my rent. My rent is currently $1634 per month. My landlord has been very patient, but I am having a hard time trying to get caught back up. I have been a help to others in the time of need, now I only pray that someone can help me out in this temporary situation. Sincerely,
