To the good people of planet Earth reading this cry for help, first and foremost THANK-YOU for taking the time out of your busy schedule & may you be blessed, regardless of whether or not you are able to help me.
My name is Mark and on June 21st of this year my 9-year-old-son Nikola and I were evacuated by the State Department from an active war zone. We are very grateful & lucky to be back home in the United States of America. However, our family is broken as my oldest son Sergei and the mother of my children Yulya were not as fortunate.
I am now a single father who has lost everything accept my 9-year-old son & hope! Because of the urgency of our repatriation, I also left behind my house & business. But these are things that with time and Gods help I can replace. We came here with less than $30 in my pocket and are staying in a place that is so emotionally toxic that I wonder sometimes if I made the right choice. In the last 7 weeks I have filled out over 500 job applications & I sent out my resume countless times. Apparently, I am overqualified to get the most basic job & support myself and my son.
I want to be crystal clear; I am NOT lazy! I am an American citizen, so is my son. But because I haven’t been in America for 12 years my credit & driving history have been completely wiped clean. I never thought I would have to start from scratch at 42, but here I am doing exactly that. I took the first job that was offered to me in a moving company, and I barely made it through the first day. Apparently moving furniture and pianos up 4 flights of stairs is not something my body can handle, at least not at my age. Without exaggeration I thought I was going to have a heart attack at least 5 times during my first day on the job and all I could think about in those moments was my son and what a waste it would be to die making $15 an hour, and who would raise him if I died.
I need a vehicle so that I can immediately create a source of income & get my son and I out of the hell where we currently spend our nights. I know that I can find immediate employment if I obtain a vehicle because I have been offered a multitude of jobs as a medical courier, as a food courier, delivering lost baggage and many other employment opportunities but they all require a vehicle that is less than 10 years old. I have exhausted all options. The problem is not that I have bad credit, it is simply that I have NO credit. Despite having over 25 years of driving experience & holding an international driver’s license, the state of NY made me redo everything from getting a state ID despite having an American passport, then a written test to get a permit, and then my road test which of course I passed but the point is it has taken me 7 weeks just to get my driver’s license.
I simply need help to acquire a vehicle that is less than 10 years old so that I can make money & rent an apartment where my precious 9-year-old son Nikola does not have to witness the daily emotional abuse that my extremely ill & unstable father dishes out on a daily basis on everyone in the household. The situation is so horrifying & toxic that I even contemplated going with my son to a homeless shelter. But I fear that this may lead to the authorities taking my son away from me and then I would surely have no reason to live. I do not do drugs, I do not drink, I am a loving and nurturing father who is asking for a hand to get up & off my knees, not for a handout. Unlike the other posts on this site, I am willing to repay every dollar with interest. I have found several vehicles either of which would allow me to acquire the kind of job that lets me set my own hours which is equally important as I must drive my son to school and pick him up from school. I need $9,900 for the vehicle and $1,100 for insurance. So $11,000 is all it would take to make this miracle happen. Please find it in your heart to assist me in showing my son that America is a place where dreams come true and is full of caring people.
Thank you and God bless you.
