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,
My name is Andrea and I am a master student at one of the best Universities in Transylvania and for five years I am living with my boyfriend who is also a phd student at the same Uni. Our problem is… the scholarship provided by the Ro Goverment is not enough to cover the bills (not to mention the rent). We are both working in order to have the money to have a life together, but it seems this is impossible. The owner of the apartment we are living in decided that from October to increase the rent… and now we need more money …
We are asking for help!! Because this year I have to sustain my master thesis and my boyfriend his Phd thesis we need time to study!! And working and studying are not working good together …
If there is any chance you can help us in having not only a future together but also a good job for the future (with a high degree on the diploma first) we will be thankful!
Also, we would be glad to host all of you in our rented apartment if you are visiting our country!
Thank you for your understanding
My name is Laurie and I am 26 years old. I currently work as a live in nanny for 7 kids! Although I fully intend to keep working for the family, present circumstances are forcing me to move out and find a place of my own. I need to be able to accomplish this in the next 2 weeks and cannot do it without help. So I am hoping that there are kind people out there who can help! I have already found a place I can afford, but since my credit is so bad I know the security deposit is going to be an issue!
I am writing this in search for any one that is able and willing to help. I am a single father of 2 kids that just recently lost his job of 3 years. Am currently on unemployed and seeking work with no luck as of yet. Being a single father, trying to cover rent, food, utilities etc without a job is becoming very hard. I have a 10 year old son and 6 year old daughter. I try very hard to take care of things i need to but currently ends are just not meeting. My daughter also has a long list of medical needs that are brought on by her having a brain tumor. She has constant doctor appointments to keep everything in check. She is loosing her hearing by a long term side effect from cemo and radiation. I do what i must do but with 2 kids and the many appointments, on unemployment it is becoming very difficult. Their mother is not involved in their lives so I try to manage everything on my own and for the most part i do. But it seems I am getting deeper and deeper into financial strain until i can get back on my feet and get things settled with my daughter. So I am asking for any sort of help. Help to financially assist with money for rent, utilities, food, gas for many trips back and forth to the doctor and more. If anything i missed and anyone wants to discuss please feel free to contact me. Thank You so much for your time in reading this and hopefully consider how much this will help me and change mine and my kids current well being
Hi, my name is Alani Gamble. I’m a nineteen year old girl from the Bay Area of California and I’m desperately requesting for money in order to afford to live away from my horrible parents.
My parents are absolutely toxic and narcissistic towards me. Over the past several months, fights, both verbal and physical, have been directed towards me. It took forever for me to realize it, but my parents have always been emotionally abusive and neglectful of me ever since my sister and I were children, but I always lied to myself as kid because I was desperate to believe they loved me and I needed to survive. Somehow, I did. But the abuse is worse now more than ever and I literally feel trapped in my own home. My parents are incredibly self-absorbed, selfish, and don’t love me at all. For all of my life my single mother has encouraged me to conform into something I wasn’t, a “perfect child”, just to maintain her image as a holy, Christian single mother who ‘did it all’. Both my father and mother have abandoned me in their own way, my father through divorce and my mom through putting work and her life before mine and my sisters. And to this day, they act like martyrs, trying get me accept their mistakes: My dad used to bring my sister and I around his other girlfriend and their baby and her kids to get us to accept his mistakes and he constantly tries to get us to accept our half-siblings. My mom raised my sister and I through TV and material things, never spending time and playing with us, she was always more concerned about her work or her own happiness. So much so, that she left us at a relatives home to go to business trip in Las Vegas, where my cousin almost succeeded in molesting me (I was about 7). My parents use tactics such as negative projecting, denial, gas-lighting, or guilt-tripping when I tell them about those mistakes. My parents are horrible individuals, justifying their abuse and neglect while threatening my physical safety and emotional health awhile they’re at it, if I ever ‘step out of line’. My sister is ‘safe; because she continues to conform to their fantasy world. I’m the one whose under fire. They don’t love me, and never did. And coming to realize all of this for the first time in my life has caused me to land into a deep depression. Even though my parents know they’ve put me through hell, they still plaster smiles on their faces, pretend everything is alright, and look at me as the odd one for not smiling back. Maybe dad forgot that recently, he literally put me in a choke hold and screamed in my face when I didn’t want to attend my vain mother’s award ceremony all the way Las Vegas. Maybe mom forgot that she pulled me out of the car and fought me the street pavement like an uncontrollable hulk. Living with my mother has been an emotional nightmare for me. And I don’t want to be associated with these people any longer. My mother has threatened to throw me out, and told me I should just drop out of college, threatening to stop paying for my tuition, because I don’t choose to conform to her insanity of a reality. My dad, who has never been a true father or has been in my life for about 13 years, has used his finances and the revoking of material things I need to get by, to manipulate and control me. He literally took away his own gifts of a laptop and cellphone away from me like a literal little child when I dared to say I didn’t need him (this is after his choke hold), because, honestly, I managed to survive for thirteen years without him. I told my dad I needed my phone to communicate with my therapist, and he still refused to give me my phone back. I don’t want to have to need my parents, especially when I have parents like this. I’m scared because right now because I don’t have the money to support myself and find a place to live, far from my parents. And I’m even more depressed that I might not be able to go to continue going to a college that I love. My parents use their finances to control me and I feel suicidal sometimes; I literally feel trapped and like I can’t escape. I’m searching for a job but there’s no way I can support myself like this. I feel horribly alone and at this point I’m just trying to survive and maintain any happiness I have left. Please, help me!
Hello My name is Chelsey. I just moved out to the Miami, FL area from Pittsburgh, PA. I grew up in Pittsburgh and was always afraid to leave friends and family because of the security I felt. I am a young college student studying journalism, that put everything out on the table and moved away from my family to start a life and a career here in beautiful Miami, FL. I have moved into a one bedroom apartment by myself, but quickly realized that the cost and expense of living is much higher here than it is back home in Pittsburgh, PA. I have gone on many job interviews and I have recently received employment. Due to my jobless period and my lack of sufficient savings, I have fallen very behind on my bills and rent for the month. I am working on getting stable again by working over times six days a week but I just can’t seem to catch up on everything. It seems as though I keep falling more and more behind even though I am working and doing all that I can to get everything paid. With school and work I am not sure what more I can do. My education is very important to me and something I really need to focus on. If I could just raise enough to get on the right path again, I could get back to focusing on school. I am asking for any donations possible so that I may pay my rent and bills to stop this stressing and get back on track. I hate asking for a hand out but everyone needs help at some point in their life and I have honestly stretched every option . Any donations would be helpful and very appreciated! Thank you for your time
Hi, my name is Mary and I am writing a book on GMOs. Unfortunately, my other work as a freelance writer has recently tanked due to factors outside my control. (eLance merged with Upworthy, Demand Media is selling eHow, etc.) So my regular monthly income has screeched to a halt while I scramble to find new clients.
I plan to self-publish this book and there is verifiable demand for a book like this–it is a neutral book that answers over 100 questions people have about GMOs.
I have been a professional freelancer for six years, and before that I worked in business administration and marketing, mainly in the wine industry. At one time, I had a decent financial cushion, but my mothers’ eight-year battle with cancer wiped out my inheritance (I wouldn’t want any of it back if it meant losing a minute of precious time) and a foolish gamble in the stock market took the last of my savings. I don’t mind living hand-to-mouth right now because I am confident that my talent and projects will get me back on track. However, I can’t stand the thought of being late on my rent—my landlord is a wonderful person, an extremely talented woodworker who is also struggling to keep his head above water in a tough economy.
I am nearly finished with the book but with my regular income gone, I find myself scrambling to buy groceries and I am late on rent.
I will gladly repay your assistance when I am able, and of course it would be my pleasure to give you some signed copies of my book, expressing my deepest gratitude.
Any amount of help would be greatly appreciated. My monthly rent is $830 and includes all utilities and internet. A cushion of two months’ rent would be a huge blessing!
My name is Matt Vileta, I’m 30 years old, and I was just released from prison. Allow me to give you a brief story of my life
I’ve had a rough childhood. I was molested several times by several people all throughout my childhood, and as you can imagine this affected me greatly. At the age of twelve I thought I was gay and came out to my friends as school. Naturally, word spread like wildfire and I was eventually the target of bullying (this was made even worse by the fact that the year was 1997 and the social acceptance of gays was nowhere near as strong as it is today). After some months the school caught wind of what was happening to me and intervened. They called my mother and told her what was happening at school, which promptly caused her to freak out, which spilled over to everyone in my life. I was rejected by all the people in my life and I sunk into a very dark place.
Eventually I molested little girl at my mother’s in-home daycare at the age of 17. Three years after that, my victim came forward and I was arrested and convicted of sex abuse at the age of 21. I’ve spent the past 9 ½ years of my life in prison, but I tried to use that time as best I could. While incarcerated I turned my life around; I worked in the Education Dept. as a GED tutor and ESL substitute teacher, and I started a self-help group to help guys begin to turn their lives around. I’ve written two books during my prison time; one about when I came out in middle school, the other a self-help guide for helping offenders prepare for their release.
As a convicted sex offender, I’m required to register. The registry laws prevent me from living anywhere near a school or daycare, and due to that I have very little options of where I can live. On top of that, my family is in no shape to support me. They managed to scrounge up enough money to pay for the first month of rent at the motel I’m staying at, but don’t have the ability to help me again. On top of that, I’ve been out for only two weeks, and no one is calling me back about a job.
Which leads me to my request: I need money for rent, gas, and a phone. My rent is $600 a month, gas is likely to be $100 – $150, and my phone is $50. If anyone can see it in their hearts to help me, I sure would appreciate it. I have no desire to return to prison and I’m trying to move forward with my life. But it’s an uphill struggle and it’s getting hard.
Thank you for reading my story and may God bless you for your charity work.
Hi am Netasha, My Family and I have become homeless one bad decision can ruin your life, In March 2015 I graduated and received my Associates in Health Science and I have a Medical Administration license wonderful but I have yet to find employment I have College advisors helping me with this search and have had interviews but no hire.

I’m Kamden. My husband and I have been married for almost four years and our struggle to just survive has taken us from place to place. For the first time we both have been able to get jobs, but our financial situation is still dire.
We have been staying with some of his family to try to save up for our own apartment, but there have been issue after issue and they are being forced to sell their home. There was a problem with a will pertaining to the home and they are going to move somewhere that we will not be able to follow, due to where my husband’s job is.
If my husband and I cannot get an apartment soon, we will end up homeless. We have until August 1st to move into a new apartment, before we find ourselves homeless again. I started my job less than a week ago so my paychecks won’t be enough to raise for the deposit, but they are just enough to pay for bills.
My husband makes 1050 a month and I will be making 400 a month until they move me to full-time which should be a long ways away.
We can just barely afford the bills and rent, but we cannot afford the beginning deposits and start up costs of moving anywhere.
The cheapest apartment anywhere near his job is 525 a month with 875 for the deposit including a refrigerator and a stove.
We need to find an extra 875.00 for the month or we are going to end up on the streets again.
We considered driving a few cities away, but our car is almost completely broken down so that would end in disaster. So that is the cheapest apartment we could find.
This summer in Louisiana is far too hot to be on the streets again, so I have come here to humbly ask for some assistance.
If you can help any at all, it will be appreciated. Thank you so much for your help
Hi thank you for viewing my story. Where do I start? My name is Marie and I live with my husband and three children. We both work full time but are struggling to keep our family affloat financially. Due to having two funerals to pay for in a short space of time we had to turn to a loan company to help us out. This then turn to another loan company then a vicious circle of pay day loans and paying them off. My husband works 70 hours a week and I have two jobs but after paying all the bills and loan payments there is not much left at all abd some weeks I worry we wint have food for the next week. Also we have now fell behind in our rent and could be facing eviction if we dont pay it soon. The whole thing is a big mess and I dont know What to do. We have three beautiful children who we love dearly but dont get to spend much time as a family as my husband and I are always working. I reckon wr are close to 20,000 in debt and I cant see any way out of it no matter how hard we are trying. Therefore I am here now sharing my story and hoping that there is some kind hearted people in the world who could possibly donate to us no matter how big or small as every donation will be greatly appreciated and would change our families future for the better as at the moment our children are seeing my husband and I stressed and tired and our house is not a happy home at the moment. So again thank you for reading and please if you could help us out atall please donate. God bless
Its hard to ask others for help sometimes, And for me this is really, really hard. Being a father of two beautiful boys and an amazing wife its hard to admit i struggle to the point where i don’t even know if we can keep up with rent. Last month i lost my job and it came at a really hard time, i had/have recently lost my dad to cancer and emotionally and psychically was not prepared to be told to find new work. So now i’m behind on my car payments for two months and i cant afford rent anymore. The car is the least of my concerns, if they take that….that’s okay, but i have to be able to provide a roof over my family’s head. with my rent at 944 a month and unable to find work making what i was before and no family to turn to, i find myself asking for help in the strangest way, the internet. I wish my credit wasn’t terrible, i would take out a loan or apply for a credit card out of desperation, but i’m at the end of my rope it seems. It’s come down to a miracle has to happen or me and my family is homeless. I could get out of the contract i”m currently in but that’s even more expensive. I know there are people less fortunate than me out there, But i need any kind of people someone can provide please. I try to have faith that everything will be okay but its so hard these days. I know i can Find new work I just need a little help until then. My family is all that i have, my children look up to me. I have to pull through even if it comes down to asking for help from others. Please anything helps
Hello ladies and gentlemen let me introduce myself
My name is Scott Russell and I live in the essex area in a place called Dagenham. Now I’m going to tell you my story and why I need some help.
When I was as young as eighteen I got an addiction of gambling which at the time I never really realised how bad it was until it had complete control over me which at that time I did not care as I thought it could be easy money.
As time went on my adidiction was getting worse but the odd thing about it i never realised how bad it got I use to get paid and head for the bookies or to the local dog track. I stated to turns to loans and my credit cards but the thought of walking out the betting shop or dog track or casinos even with a bit of money was so good that feeling of winning wow the buzz of it all it’s the best feeling you ever get if but if you loose no when you loose it just takes everything away from you and believe it or not there is only one winner really but at that time you never do understand or you never admit you have a serious problem. I have lost a home my friends and most importantly the woman I loved because of it but even that I lost all that I still didn’t think I had a problem but it just got worse because the betting shops introduced a roulette machine and I just got worse my payday loans was more than i could afford I was even turning to loan sharks.
I was in the betting shop one day about 18 months ago with my complete wage packet when I lost £1300 in less than an hour when I should have been paying my debts two credit card four or five payday loans.
On that very day I tried to take my life when I was coming around in hospital from one of many overdoses thats when I knew I had to stop I couldn’t go on like it anymore because it was and most definitely still is affected my whole life but I haven’t stepped in to a bookies to bet again.
I’m looking for financial help so I can find a flat so i can be happy again stop going from place to place somewhere I can call home for the first time in a long time.
Thank you for listening
I’ll start of with giving some background information on my situation:
For the past couple years I’ve had problems with my health, which eventually lead me drop out of high school and not continue with any post-secondary studies. However, over the last few months my health started to improve, and I decided to return to my academic studies, while concurrently working a full time manual labour job. I’ve been doing my studies online during the night, while working a 5:30am-7pm (construction), and I’m very close to receiving all my high school credits + diploma. Most of the money I make working is being saved up to pay for university tuition expenses (the rest goes to help out my family), which I’m planning to apply to soon; for the winter semester. All of this has been a stark contrast to where my life was just a year ago, and I’ve been really optimistic because of it – until a week ago that is.
I live with my family, who are very traditional and extremely religious immigrants. I never planned to move out anytime soon, as culturally we’re expected to stay with our family until we get married, and so I respected the wishes of my parents and stayed at home until this day. Due to this reason, I haven’t prepared myself at all for starting a stable life on my own, and now I’m being forced into it. The reason for this is because I was outed as being gay to my parents by my own sibling, and not surprisingly, they reacted in the worse possible manner. Outside of becoming violent and threatening towards me, they decided to cut me off completely as well and are giving me two weeks to move out. Most of my friends are part of our ethnic community, and because of this they’ve been turning their backs on me out of respect for my family. I’m desperate now and don’t really have anyone to turn to.
I’m asking for any amount of financial help in order to at least help me stand on my own two feet. As I said before, most of the money I’m making at work, I’m saving up for my tuition. I really don’t want to give up on my studies again, as I’ve already lost a couple years due to my past health related issues. The money would go to help with basic commodities like rent and food, and other things to aid me in starting a new life. I feel really ashamed asking for help, however I’m at my wits and am extremely desperate. I feel that starting an independent life on my own will eventually be the best thing, as living a lie about who I am with my family for all these years has caused a lot of psychological turmoil for myself. Nonetheless, in order to start that new life I do need help. Again, I’m pleading to anyone that’s willing to help, it doesn’t matter how small of an amount, any donation will be very much appreciated. Thank you so much, to those who took the time to read this and to anyone who donates! I will be eternally grateful and I promise to work hard to not let any of that money go to waste.
Hi. My name is Becca. I’m 23 years old, and living alone in a foreign country. I left home and moved half way across the world when I was 18.
About two years ago, I was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. Not many people are familiar with it, so I’ll explain it briefly:
Schizo-affective disorder is a rather rare mental disorder which is a mix-match of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Personally, I suffer greatly from depression and mania, and have schizophrenic symptoms like hallucinations, paranoia and strong delusions.
I don’t let it run my life, but sometimes it does take over for a short time. It can be pretty destructive pretty quickly.
I had a really good phase: for about 4-5 months, I was doing really well. I had a full-time job that I was able to keep up with, and I had a very active social life. Eventually though, I felt myself falling back into a depression and it absolutely terrified me. I did not want to feel trapped again. So, without thinking about money, I booked a flight to Thailand and did some volunteer work and some traveling.
Even though it brought debt, booking that flight was the best thing I could have done for myself. I still had moments where I felt lost and frozen and crippled, but the whole trip made me realise that I am okay.
Now, I’m back home. I got back a few weeks ago, and I am struggling. A lot. I have been trying so hard to take care of everything on my own but I’ve realised I just can’t do it. Not right now. Right now, I need help.
I have a pile of bills on my kitchen table that i’m unable to pay. My phone service has been shut off because I can’t afford the bill. My rent is due in less than a week and I don’t have the money to pay it. Since there’s no money in my account, i’m getting fees from my bank every time a transaction is declined. Everything is adding up and I need help.
I can’t hold down a job right now. I try so fucking hard but I have a moment where I slip up, and I ruin everything. I’m lost right now and I don’t know where to turn. I’m working as much as I can, and not spending any money at all. I’ve barely been eating because I literally do not have any money to my name.
I don’t have money to pay for my medications, which is just making everything worse.
I’m feeling extremely overwhelmed and defeated. It’s not a nice way to feel. Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety and all other forms of mental struggle are a real thing.
I’m trying to come up with a plan to get my life back on track, but these bills are just adding up. I’m crippled by finances.
I am so lost right now, and I need help.
If any of you have been in a similar situation before, but are in a position where you could help now, please, please, please consider it.
I will pay it forward as soon as I’m back on my feet.
That’s a promise.
Hey there I’m Ollie, a student at university in Cornwall. I recently had a phone call from my mother, who informed me that the estate agency that is in charge of my accommodation rang her (my contract guarantor) to collect outstanding rent charges. This sum is £370 which neither I nor her has. The situation is as follows: I was under the impression that the money the estate agents wanted as a deposit would then be used as the first month’s rent on the flat which turns out is not the case. I am now 22 days and counting overdue on this rent payment. The estate agency has not contacted me about these late charges either but went straight to my guarantor. The reason that I don’t have the money myself is that I am between jobs, I am currently looking for a better job in Cornwall with more hours and a better rate of pay and the job I am currently in (although I love it) does not pay well. I am at the bottom of my student overdraft limit because of this same situation last summer and my guarantor cannot cough up the funds both because I’m from a low in come family and £370 is a lot of money for us. I have been trying to come up with way I can make the money and am currently trying to sell my guitar and use what little cash that I have to buy and sell items on ebay. Aside from these ideas I will have to wait until I have earnt enough to pay off my rental charges whilst the rate of interest goes up dramatically which is what brings me to asking on a site like this. I need a hand with this on rent payment; after this has been lifted from atop of me I’ll be free to use my next lot of wages to pay my rental instalment no problem
Hello, My country is experiencing a serious crisis , which every day becomes more difficult work. I live alone and have no government help for nothing. Since February i am unemployed and my bills are piling up. However you are looking for , companies are only sending employees away. As the only thing I have left is my name, I would like some help in order to pay the bills and keep trying. Please help me ....
My name is Rocky. I was recently terminated from my job for having ADHD. I felt like I was judged. Before that job I had been terminated from my job before that as well because of the same reason, which set me and my girlfriend back on all of our bills. It’s been insanely difficult to make sure we don’t end up homeless. My girlfriend Mindy suffers from an anxiety disorder therefore she is unable to work. Life is hard for her and I try to make her feel as happy and comfortable as I can. We can’t even afford to get her to the doctor either. A lot of times we pick dandelions in the yard and make tea out of them because they are a calming flower. I have applied for HUD for us, but it won’t be till September that we’d recieve help. That is if we get approved. I’ve never been a type of person to ask for help, because I always felt like hard work would pay off, but I feel like I’m stuck in a rut and I don’t know what to do anymore. As for my last at Olive Garden, I was the highest in sales and never missed a day of work. I went up to a table and before I took their order they asked me to bring out their salad so I did. At the end of the day my manager said I broke the rules and was terminated. I felt so horrible because I was trying so hard to get us on our feet. Felt like we were almost caught up financially. My manager had told me a couple of days before the termination that I needed to ‘slow down’ and if I didn’t that this place was not a job for me. Ever since I have moved to West Virginia I have ran into this problem. When I lived in Florida I never had a problem losing my job. I worked at Denny’s for almost 7 years and decided I wanted to work on the beach and got a better job. When I left to move to West Virginia I had a letter of recommendation from my boss there. Since I came up here serving just wasn’t what it was in Florida. I’m really at a point where I just don’t know what to do. I know what your thinking ….move back to Florida. I can’t because Mindy is from here and this is her hometown. She suffers from severe anxiety which has made her develope agrophobia as well. Where she don’t want to leave the house because she is afraid she would have a panic attack. When Mindy had them it would pretty much paralyze her. I’m trying now to get her on social security as well, but that takes time. So I’m at a part in my life where I don’t know what to do but I can’t give up. I felt like I have ran out of options. Even if I do get a job rent is due on the 19th and I’d end up evicted before I made rent money. The money I was saving up to pay the rent I’m having to use for gas and other things that we need. I would feel so blessed if I could get a little help from anyone. It would mean the world to us. Thank you and God Bless
I have always been too proud to ask for money before, but here I am now. I really don’t know what else to do. I got an opportunity to earn my Master’s degree in the city and I thought it would be the best thing to start my career. So I moved to the city from my small town with nothing–I had nothing either way because college wiped me of any savings I might have had, so I figured I might as well move. I had enough money to pay a deposit on my apartment, but I need just one month of rent now so I can get my feet on the ground and begin a job before school starts. My rent is $800 per month but anything will help me. I am starting from rock bottom.
I worked my way through my first degree with three jobs and multiple scholarships. My family has a history of borrowing money but I don’t want to be forever in debt like so many of my relatives. But now that I’m in the city, living expenses are greater and it’s harder to get a job. I’ve lived off of $20/month for groceries for a long time. I’m just too proud to take money from others for food. My parents can’t help me because my father is very ill and they have constant medical bills.
If you have the heart, just one month of rent would help me so, so much and I would be so extremely grateful. I’ve never begged people before and it is all I can do just to write this now. I have $2.93 to my name right now, but I am starting a minimum wage job very soon. The problem is that my rent is already overdue. If this doesn’t work, I really have nowhere else to turn. The school I am attending will pay me a living wage once school begins, but I still need to pay for one month on my own.
Thanks so much for your consideration. You would be helping my get my Master’s and start my career! <3

My name is Aaliyah and I’m in desperate need of your assistance. My rent is due on the first (09/01/2015) and I am really struggling to pay for it. It is of the amount of $500 or 434.91 Euro. I’m only 20 years old. I’m a college student and I have a job but I was not able to get a good amount of hours of work last month because of summer break; I work on the campus. My school is called Cal Poly Pomona and we do not go back to school for another month so I can’t get the financial aid I need to pay for this month’s rent in time either. I was wondering if you can help me please. I’ve never been in a situation like this and my parents cannot help because my dad is on welfare himself. Please help.
Hello my name is Fern Jimeno a 27 year old Spanish/American foreigner currently residing in the streets of Hamar Norway having not been in Hamar long I lack friends and support.
I am married and my wife is sick in the hospital we could not afford to get a large place to rent so we got a very tiny room which unfortunately I was kicked out unexpectedly because of a misunderstanding with a flat mate who does not accept men to be in the apartment alone. I am currently in training in one job but not hired at the moment and also looking on others while I wait. I am all alone and haven’t earned nearly enough from freelance projects which are seldom coming my way these days, with the cost of transportation and food my funds have depleted to nothing. I wander the streets alone at night sleepless and have a hard time finding a shower these past days I feel like I am hopeless and my throat has been getting more sore every night I spend outside I have managed to find a rent for 1085 US dollars which is 9000 Norwegian kroners but It is at the moment off limits in my budget but waiting I go to charities but none can provide me any place to sleep. I have very little warm clothing to wear and no tent or camping gear just a handbag summer jacket and shirt, I am worried that my homelessness will vanish my chances of getting the jobs I am applying to. I hope that someone reads my cry for help, the situation is so depressing that I am exhausted each day is taking more and more effort to survive as social services offer me minimal support with my foreign status. I have education and a hardworking history I just happened to get evicted and locked out of my apartment without any legal way to change agreements because of a complaint that was extremely sexist and unfair toward men. My wife is critically sick in the hospital and I am on the street getting sick myself.
My name is K. Bryan, I am a 32 year old father of 4 amazing children. My 13yr old daughter, my 2yr old son, and my two step sons. I am normally not the type of person to ask for help or to worry about a financial situation because i have always worked it out on my own. My fiance, Lisa, and I are fairly simple people and do not live by wants. We always put our children first. We do not come from wealthy families by any means and have no one to turn to. We’ve done all I believe we can do to keep it together. I have been self employed for the past 6 years of my life and have had some ups and downs but I believe this to be a time where i can’t get back on my feet. Lisa and i have sold many materialistic belongings, applied for loans (only to get denied), let her car go to collections, and have cut all unnecessary accommodations (digital cable, smart phones, etc.) We have maxed out credit cards for school supplies and clothes for the children. We are behind on every bill except water and a couple credit cards because the payments are manageable with her having garage sales and babysitting occasionally. Our one car and electric bill are almost two months behind. We have a past due amount of $587.40 for electric and try to pay a little every week to get it caught up. I have already done a deferral on the car payment and the finance company has been wonderful with helping us out but will only do so much. I am mainly worried about the roof over my kids head. Our rent is $1300.00 and is due the first of every month. Everyday after that, its +$10 a day. Given the time frame that we have its not looking like we are gonna make it. I know there are many other people in the world in worst situations. I know this because i have seen it and have helped out when i could in the past. I now know how it feels to need financial help and its not a good feeling especially when there is kids involved. I really hate to ask but if anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated and never forgotten. Thank you.
To whom it may concern,
Hello, first I would like to introduce myself, My name is Eric, I am the father of four great kids, and I have been married for about 16 years now,my wife is the mother of all of my children, and we have been married since we were 19. I went to work straight out of high school, actually left high school and got my G.E.D. while working, I had a son on the way,I worked at the same airport for years, we were a cargo airport and the work was hard, but after I worked there for five years I topped out in pay and was making good money, my wife worked there too and we were fairly prosperous, during this time my parents who were both trying to get on social security (my Dad had a heart attack and took early retirement for his health and my mother was disabled, her claim took a lot longer) and living with me and my wife, so most of our money went to taking care of a family of eight during these years including medical visits and medicine. A larger company came in and bought our company’s airport and gave us raises and we thought everything was going to be good, but three years later they closed the entire airport and moved their operations out of state. this airport was the largest employer for a dozen counties and since the closing of the airport the unemployment rate in this area has sky rocketed due to the job market being over saturated with people now. My wife took a job with the company out of state and commuted a couple of hundred miles every day, till she developed arthritis in her lower spine making it impossible for her to sit that long anymore, so she had to leave that job and take a much lower paying job at a gas station. The company eliminated my full time job, but offered me a severance package of one years pay spread out over a year, after which (it was a nice respite, I had worked long 3rd shift hours my kids whole lives and now I had some time to get to know them) after that was up I had unemployment for just a few months before I found a job with a friend of mine at a fiberglass factory where I got pretty sick, had to see the doc about once a week just to function, they refused to move me to another dept, so I ended up having to quit, the first time I have ever quit a job in my life. Since I have been searching for jobs left and right, but no one wants to hire me, there’s just an over saturation of applicants out here, and now if your unemployed for more than six months a lot of company’s wont even call you back on your applications and resumes. The state had a training program that would have helped me pay for college, so I could be retrained, but when I tried to use it they told me they were out of funds for this program for the year, and by time the next year rolled around I was no longer eligible, the only program they would even consider was nursing and the college campus where I would have to go was just to far as I have now become the full time care taker of my children, getting them up for school and off the bus, supper bath time and so forth.
These past two years are the first time in me and my wife’s life that we have had to use programs like snap (food stamps) or any of the other programs, and I wish we could go off of it! I’m glad programs like this are here for people, but I don’t want to use them anymore. About two years ago we had to flee our own house after an elderly family member made us the victims of a violent crime, so with four children in tow we were temporarily homeless,(I had been homeless as a child for several months, so the second time in my life I have been homeless), sleeping on the living room floor of my in-laws. Where we are living at now we can barely make the rent, were late almost every month, land lords a nice guy mostly, but I fear his patience will wear thin. This house he is trying to sell and we may be uprooted suddenly. We would appreciate some help with the bills and rent.
My wife is now suffering health problems again, they suspect she may have Graves disease and her health isn’t as great as it could be.She may have to take time off from her job for surgery to her thyroid, I am looking constantly for work, always applying at every local place I can walk to, we only have one car and no child care provider so I would either have to work third shift or very unusual hours to be able to get my youngest on the bus and off it every school day which I’m not against that, its just very hard to find a place with those exact hours,If anyone should read this and know of a company I could work for online send me that info as well please.I even started a you tube channel trying to earn some extra income to help pay the bills around here,I have been used to working my whole adult life, and this hurts to go so long with out employment, it makes you feel useless, I don’t want to feel that way anymore, and I don’t like the Idea of begging on-line but here I am, I don’t want us to go homeless again, or have the power or water turned off again, so I’m asking if you can help, will you? It would be appreciated, greatly. thanks for reading this.I am sorry I rattled on for so long, But I hope you will at least give my request consideration, anything would help. I hope you consider it, thanks
Hey there, I am a hard working Hungarian young male, looking for help. Since the circumstances here, in Hungary are very bad, I’ve lost my job, and I have no savings. I know, there are a lot of people in need, but I am really in a very tough situation here. As a young man, I still want to build a career, study, to develop my knowledge, and live a proper life. I spent a year earlier in Dublin, Ireland, so I know myself there. I would like to go back, I’d like to work and study. I am interested in literacy, and volunteering, and it would be great, if someone could help me.
I’m not asking for a fortune, of course. All I’m asking for is an opportunity, to get there. I never asked money online, so I have to admit, that I feel pretty ashamed. Since I’d like to work there, everything I’d like to get is a minimal amount, that would be enough to buy an airline ticket from Hungary to Ireland. It is not a big amount, but unfortunately right at the moment, I just can not accept it to myself at all. This is a very uncomfortable statement, because I really do feel ashamed, and I don’t know, what else could I do. I hope, someone will read it, and will be as kind as to help me. Of course, I would pay it back as soon, as I would be able to do so. I’m not begging for “free” money, since I know very well, that everyone have to work to get paid. I never believed in begging, but this seems to be my only chance to change my life, and stop letting myself down, back to depression. Any useful ideas, or kind words are also welcome.
Thank you very much for reading it.
I am Brazilian and I live in the state of Pernambuco, in the northeast of the country. I have been experiencing difficulties because they live in a poor area and have gone through financial problems after the death of my father. He took his own life after he learned that was fired from the town hall where we lived. He was battling depression. After this fact, assumed the responsibilities of the house and we lived the pension left to my mother. I am a former professor of electronics and work without fixed employment with information technology and tutoring when has. My mother has heart problems, requiring daily medication. We live in a rented apartment, where accumulated debt. I see the time being placed on the street. I do everything to give a good life to my mother, but I can not comply with this pope. Accumulated water debts, light and power. I try to cover expenses, but every month the debt increases more. I have 3 brothers, but they can not help me because they have their responsibilities as well. I tried to do some work on the internet, but I found sites that have online work, because I live in a region with little access. I’m doing tests for competition, to improve the quality of life for my family. But to study, we are with the carefree mind, because knowledge is little acquitted because of debts. I have a good character and fight to fulfill my duties, but I can not. So I joined this site to have at least a hope of improvement. Life has never been easy for me, especially after getting a shitload of life, when my father left. I do not want the same end, so I’m struggling to get out of this situation. I ask for your help so that the coming months I’ll be over this phase. Thank you for your understanding and I count on your help!
I’m a full time student working part time at a place where I barely get any hours. I’m down to five classes and four of them I will be completing this fall, only problem is I do have money to pay for rent and go to college full time. I have a two year old and my mother lives with us as well. She works from home but due to her illness she misses a lot of days and her insurance eats up over half of the check she brings home. So it’s coming down to me having to make the choice of either dropping out of college to get a full time job or face super hard financial hardships. We’ve already missed three months of rent and the landlord said if we miss anymore they’ll start the eviction process, we’re barely making the car payments and our light bill run the three hundred range. Please help us I’m not asking for much $6,000.00 to $8,000.00 to help us pay the back rent and catch up our bills. But again any help is greatly appreciated. I want to finish college, I’ll be the first of grandchildren to do so, my mother and her parents did not get to even go to college. Please please please. I didn’t let the birth of my child keep me from graduating high school, so I don’t want something as simple as this to keep me from completing my hard work I put in to get this far in school. Please help us get through Fall semester. I hate to see my mom cry because she’s worried on how were going to make it and no be evicted, I’m assuring her not to worry that it will work out some how. Please help us.
My name is Magda and I am from Poland. Together with my best friend we came up with the idea of moving out abroad, since the economic situation in our country is not the best for young people. We decided to move to Dublin – as we have seen this city as the Best place to find a job and a have a good life in. Our plan was to find a Job, start to save money that we can go to the University next fall. To leave Poland, we had to borrow quite a lot of money which we have to pay back. We want to put in life one of ours business ideas, but from the begining of our stay in Dublin, everything is agains us and here our story begins:
We were robbed at the hostel and were left with almost nothing . No one can help us financially, its over a month now when we are staying at some couchsurfers and people who are billing to help us, at east when it comes to accomodation. We are doing our best to survive. We can’t find Job as we dont have an Irish experience, it’s really hard, but we are walking over a dozen of kilometres to leave our CV’s hoping that finally someone will give us job. Our hope for the dream begins to fade. Never in my life have I asked anyone for anything, I try to be independent and strong – because I know that nothing comes easily. Unfortunately, the situation forced me to do it, and so I thought – why not, you may find yourself a philanthropist who would be willing to help me. I’m not asking for a lot of money, every cent might help us, it’s up to the person who is willing to help how much he/she can give. I believe simply in human kindness and willingness to help. I know that my story is not very credible – and I’m aware of that there is a chance that no one will answer me, but a matter of fact – I have nothing to lose and maybe something to gain. I do not extorting money from anyone, quite frankly i don’t expect any answer, but I know that good people does exist. I am a real person, have a passport, driving license, I have nothing to do with extortion of money. Please only help. Maybe there is someone willing to help us make our dreams come true.I believe that there is a lot of pe ople as king for money, but nothing venture, nothing gain.
I wish you all the best
my rent is due today and i dont have enough money to pay. i am in need of $600 if i dont pay my rent today me and my family will be forced to leave the house. i am doing this for my 4yrs old daughter, she loves the house very much and she even call it “My House” and please i don’t want her to see that we will be forced out if we can’t pay the due rent.

My name is Brandon and as of one week ago today on 4/10/15 My new landlord gave me a letter stating that he was going to rehab the house and we had until 4/30/15 to move out after i already paid rent. He said that he would return rent after we moved out as well as my deposit after he came in and cleaned and what not and deducted from my deposit. Also that i would receive it bout two weeks after we moved out. So that put me in a hard spot. I get paid weekly and have two pay days until the 30th. But doesn’t even put me close to the amount i need for first months rent and deposit plus my utilities that are due as well as other important bills like car insurance and such. I’ve cut back any where and every where that i can. I have no where the resources nor time to get that amount of money and move by 4/30/15. The landlord has put me in a very hard place as i’m only 27 years old. So i’am asking for donations to help me achieve the amount i need to move for first months rent and my deposit which is $2000.00. I really don’t want to put everything in storage and sleep in my car until i can get the money up to get another place. All my relative live out of state so staying with a relatives is out of the option and want to keep my job as its not a bad and pays OK just not enough to get to where i need in two weeks. So if i can get help with any of the amount above it would be so appreciated and a blessing. As i haven’t had the best of luck the last few months something seems to always come up. Thank You.
Hello everyone! I am 23 years old and need to get out of my parents house asap! They have told me that they decided they will be moving in the near future and I won’t be able to go with them. My boyfriend and I both have full time jobs but do not have any savings because my car recently broke down and it is the only vehicle we have so we had to put all of our money into that. We both have asked our families and friends and no one seems to be able or willing to help. We have found an apartment that is ready and waiting for us to move in. We just don’t have the full move in amount. We need 1400 to move in and we have only 700 to go towards it. We could really use any and all help that anyone would be willing to give us. My boyfriend is in the middle of a bitter custody battle with his ex wife as well and he just wants to be able to provide for his daughter and have a place for her to come visit. He is staying with his parents an hour away right now because my parents will not let him stay here until they move. So we are definitely in a bit of a rut. It’s hard for him to get to his job with that kind of commute everyday. We just need this apartment asap so I can not be homeless and he can get to work more efficiently as well as me. Please if you can find it in your hearts to help us we promise we will not take it for granted and we will pay it forward in the best ways! Thank you guys for taking the time to read this. Bless you all!
Hi, thanks for taking the time to look at this. I never thought that I would be on a begging website but times are tough so I gotta do what needs to be done. I am in a tight spot right now and would really appreciate any help. I live in my apartment with my two dogs, a yorkie and a corgie and they mean the world to me. I’m behind on rent and I’m missing around $250 to pay it. I just moved in recently and have been paying with money I had beforehand that I received from family and friends, but now I’m pretty much all out. I’ve been on the lookout for a job, and have applied for many of them, but haven’t even been called back. It almost brings me to the point of depression because I have constantly been moving around due to money issues and I really dont want to see my dogs suffer because of it. If you are able to donate to help me pay for the rent, I will have to time to search for a job that would actually accept so I wont have to so this anymore. I don’t like asking for money for others but I have to do what I can to support me and my dogs. Please help me, the $250 may not help with food and other expenses at the moment, but as of right now, my main concern is the rent. Thank you, and have a wonderful day.
I’m writing with a lot of pain and sadness in my heart. Me and my lovely husband never had too much in this life ,but we had enough with our hard work to can support our 3 beautifull children. And we were always there to help everybody . But we lost everything we had because we had trust in other company to make a fusion with our company so that we had less costs . They just lyed to us and they had managed that we lost all our equipment and our work. So for one to another day we didn’t had nothing more. And, not even money to a good lawyer! Our daughter was at the university and she was a very good studente but because of our situation we had no more conditions to pay her studies. Our son was 7 years old and suddenly he had to see we selling everything in our house so we had food.And that all was happening when our baby was just born, because of all the stress i had lost one baby during the pregnancy and was 90% chances that our little one also didn’t survive. Fortunnelly he was strong enough and he fought for to live!We had to emigrate because there was there noting more for us. When you don t have nothing more is very sad that you must face that the friends that you thought you had aren t there anymore.Now we are living in another country and it s very difficult because i still dont have work and what my husband gets its sometimes not enough untill the end of the month. We could not pay the last months rent and i can not even sleep because im so afraid of the future.I dont have a car so i must walk with my baby in the buggy almost 5 miles to bring and pick up my son from school no mutter if it rains of snows . How many times i dont even can see the way because of the tears in my eyes. Im so tired I ,Just need help and im begging here because we must pay the rent and also the transport of our personal things that we had to let it stay 2000km from here. And, for that we must pay every month to the man that rented the garage for us. You are my last hope. Everything that you can help is really welcome!I cant remeber when i bought something new for my children. God Bless you.

I am a 40 year old, father of 3 beautiful children. I have suffered from depression my entire life, but was only recently diagnosed with depression within the last 4 years. I have been in the hospital twice for suicidal thoughts and was cleared to return to work in October 2014. My attitude and thoughts towards life have greatly improved, but I’m having difficulties finding work. I haven’t kept in touch with family or friends because I have felt ashamed, and I feel like others are uncomfortable around me. But all I really care about is to see my kids every day. After staying at a homeless shelter for almost a month, I used money from unemployment insurance to get a basement suite near my children, but now I’m short rent money. My former employer may hire me back, but it may take a few weeks before that’s finalised. I feel so close to getting back to the person, the man, the father I used to be. I coach my 8 year old twins in soccer, and watch my 11 year old in gymnastics. But I need to put them to bed at night, help with homework, have meals with, watch movies with, laugh and play and read with my kids every day. As long as I stay in the prescribed antidepressants and sleep ing medication, I’m positive and outgoing. I just need that little bit of financial aid. My rent is $600 a month, medication is $97 per month. I would like to get a phone, and I have made an application to get a vehicle. The car company (Kia dealership) has a 2008 Jeep Compass picked out for me, but I’ve been told that I would need to put $1000 down. I have been a delivery driver and courier driver for 22 years, and I could get any delivery job with a vehicle. Is there any possibility if getting some help please? I’m so close to getting back on my feet.
Hi! First of all, thank you for your time.
My name is Ani, I am 19 and i am currently a student in the Netherlands. My family and I don’t get along very well(not at all, actually) because of major differences. They are orthodox, i am an atheïst. They despise homosexuals, I am for gay marriage. They think my music taste is satanic. So as you can see we have our differences. We never got along and we fight on a daily basis where it gets out of hand as well. (If I say anything about them hating on gays, we get in a fight for example). They also obviously hate me for not believing in God.
Luckily, i have a chance to move out and study in Amsterdam! I currently have a job for the weekends which allows me to pay my own bills.
Unfortunately, I need to pay for my rent in Amsterdam. This stops me from studying in Amsterdam, because I can’t travel all the way there and back. It would cost me a lot! I can pay my health insurance, and will be able to afford my own groceries.
So what I am asking you is for money to be able to rent a place so I can study in Amsterdam and get away from this madhouse. I can’t take it here anymore.
Thank you for your time.
I’m not at the point of an eviction notice, but I am very, very close. I recently lost one of the couple of jobs I used to pay my rent and bills. It was sudden and unexpected. I owe too much rent to be able to continue living here unless I pay it off.
As someone who was, up until recently, in foster care, being homeless has always been one of my greatest fears. I heard about some of the terrible things that happened once the others were forced to leave the system, wholly and completely unprepared for how to actually be an adult. Without parents or proper guidance, it was impossible for a lot of the people I knew. Thankfully, I was dedicated, even though at times I didn’t think I’d be able to make it, I managed to be able to live on my own after coming from the system around a year ago.
I felt like my dreams were finally coming true. I was living on my own and attending college to earn a degree in the medical field, something I always wanted so I could help people. Being a foster kid made me want to help people, and I knew the best way was to be a doctor.
That’s why I’m asking for donations here. After trying so hard and fighting to stay a float while being pushed around in the foster care system, I don’t want my dreams to crash here because of a sudden job loss. I want to keep attending school and living independently from the state, working towards my goals.
Anything at all would help. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, even if you decide not to donate, and even more thanks if you do decide to donate.
My name is Monica. I am a single parent of 3. I am hard working, in college and always considered to be reliable Recently I have come into some hardships. I have always paid my bills on time and was trying to build my credit so that I could one day buy a decent car so that I can continue in my work (I am a case manager/ Housing specialist at a homeless shelter in Brooklyn, NY) so I know what it is like to live in a shelter I live it every day while servicing vulnerable families. Back in November my car broke down and since this is the way that I get to and from work, view housing/ apartments for my clients as well as drop my son off to school , then pick him up and then drop him to his after-school program because I lost my childcare provider, so I had to get it fixed; well that was a whopping $1200 for my 1997 Kia Sportage- timing belt water pump and heater coils all at the same time. Soon after my rent fell behind and all of my bills fell behind. I have bill collectors calling me all day everyday soon I will have my housing authority at my door demanding rent that I cannot pay to them right now so far my rent is behind by 3 months at a rate of $790. I have asked family and friends so far I managed to come up with $600, the problem is paying this back how will I do it and still be in debt. I am asking for help at this time because I don’t know what else to do. Any help would be appreciated 1 cent 1 dollar, anything would help me get closer to paying my rent and getting back on track. I don’t want to be out in the cold with my 8 year old… he comes to my job from time to time and knows what it is like to be homeless and living in a shelter with limited resources. I don’t want to be faced with my job becoming his reality. Again any help will be greatly appreciated
Thank you for your compassion and consideration,
Monica [don8 email=”email@example.com”]
