First the pandemic caused me to lose my job, I collected unemployment for a bit but it wasn’t much help. I have applied to Amazon and am going to a meeting to see if I get hired soon depending on my health. I am a 4th year college student studying Biology and on 8/25/2020 I was diagnosed with COVID. My symptoms ended up being pretty bad but not bad enough to be hospitalized but, until today it is hard to focus on pretty much anything. This caused me to drop some of my classes because of the workload. I ended up having to repay $4,000 due to dropping these courses and I don’t have that kind of money right now and in order for me to be able to attend school again in the Spring I have to pay that off. It’s been hard having to pay necessary bills and being left with barely anything to pay off my schooling. Any help is greatly appreciated. I have attached my COVID tests and am willing to provide any proof that is asked.
Hi! My name is Ashley and I am 18 years old. I am trying to raise money for fees regarding college. I am planning to attend the University of East London studying Biomedical Science/Neuroscience. My tuition and housing are being covered by FAFSA and housing. Unfortunately, about a month ago my mother kicked me out and refused to pay for my college at 12:00 on the dot of my 18th birthday. This happened after years and years of emotional, verbal, and physical abuse. I’m devastated that this happened but I do not want to give up on London and my dream of going to college, especially after so much effort and planning and being SO close to getting there.
I only have to cover the student visa application fee, biometrics, my flight to London, and some basic living essentials to keep me on my feet until I can get a job over there (I am already looking at potential jobs and have gotten some offers.)
All I’m asking for is about $3,500 which will strictly be used to cover these costs. Anything helps, thank you so much in advance!
I am raising $25,000 for College Fund. Unfortunately my mother was forced to retire from her job and money has been tight in the household. I don’t qualify for much financial aid. First let me tell you about myself…..
I was introduced to Christ at a young age, by my grandfather who was a great example of a Christian man. He was a soldier in the army of the Lord Throughout my childhood, he has taught me valuable and spiritual life lessons that are still meaningful and precious to me. In Spite of him passing, his lessons and words of wisdom still have made a major impact on me today and my life to become the God fearing virtuous woman that I am. One of the many lessons he has instilled in me, was that the Lord is the captain and we are just co-pilots and he is the author and finisher of our lives. ¨ I am the Alpha and the Omega the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” Revelation 22:13. My grandfather taught me in his passing not to question my Lord and Savior. He may be referred to as The Almighty, Allah, The Creator, Buddha just to name a few. In my family’s religious walk and journey he is referred to as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and the Holy Trinity. I have learned that he works on his time and not mine after losing two of the most precious jewels that life could offer. To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven: After seeing both my delectations for life passed away due to Cancer in 2013 and 2019. I learned to just let go and let god. Alongside my grandfather sharing his words of wisdom, my family has played a vital and essential role as to my religious values, moral beliefs and ethics. I often attended my motherś and auntś church on several occasions in the past. I am a spirit filled Christian believer who may not go to church every Sunday but still praises the Lord. I believe I can strengthen the sisterhood community because I was raised to be a leader and not a follower. I am an innovator. Coming from an all- girls STEM highschool, I believe a school like CSUDH uplifts women to run the world someday. I can make my mark due to my seven critical humanitarian soft skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, Adaptability, Initiative, curiosity and imagination.
I was 9 years old when I entered my new foster home. At first, I wasn’t as comfortable with the environment because I figured without a doubt I was going to move homes again prior to living with my first foster mother and moved due to a personal issue. Months went by I had gotten comfortable with my new mother because I was finally at peace in my new home in Los Angeles, California. All I remember from my young mind is taking a bath one night around 8 pm I yelled “MOM” for the first time. My foster mother came rushing into the bathroom and said: “wait did you call me mom?” I responded with “yes” with a warm smile on my face. Months later my foster mother referred to me as her “Little Sunshine.” At the age of 10, my new mother and I went to the court in Downtown, Los Angeles to finalize the adoption. This event had mattered to me personally because I was no longer in fear. I was in the hands of a person who will truly love me for eternity. This event was metamorphic because not only did it affect my future but the event made me a more stabilized human being in a family that is filled with love and success. I am now on the road to becoming a Nurse Practitioner in Trauma or low- income areas with the support of my new adoptive family. I would also like to become a social worker to get children adopted and experience the blessing that I had gone through. From this experience, I learned not everyone is dangerous and selfish there is still hope left in this world. There are many good people that want to do the right thing by helping others to be successful in the ongoing world. I can apply this to future reference to inform others that adoption is a beautiful process. I believe adoption is the most important event that can happen to any child. Parents are receiving the joy and blessing of adding a child into the family. The children who are adopted have a high tendency to finish school and receive higher education. As of children who are stuck in foster care who may not ever feel what love is. Often times they will dropout with no motivation to life and then become angry at the world.
In closing, thank you for reading. All donations are greatly appreciated. Your donation will go towards my college fund so I can pursue my dream in Nursing or Social Work.
Hi, I am 19 years old and about to start my sophomore year in college. When I was in high school I knew exactly what I wanted, freedom. When I accepted into University 4 a state away and on a partial scholarship, I jumped onto the opportunity. Now freedom was not the only reason I went to school, I plan on pursuing a career in child protective services as a social worker. I feel quite passionate about helping the helpless. Luckily My financial aid was able to cover the rest of the costs of my tuition. The only costs that were left onto me were the housing fees which were manageable but only with a part time job.
Unfortunately during the last semester I was diagnosed with depression. This affected every aspect of my life. I lost 30 lbs in about 2 and a half months, and was unable to leave my room or even my bed unless I had work or class. Sometimes I wasn’t even able to do that. This was a factor that caused me to not do so well in school. This eventually led to a downward spiral of me not prioritizing my mental health and ultimately failing in every aspect of my life. Due to my incredibly low grades that resulted from the semester, I have had both my financial aid and partial scholarship revoked.
Now that I am not in school I have reached out to and been put on medication along with being paired with my amazing therapist. I have also reached out to my university who, while sympathetic, can not return my scholarship until I have a semester to prove an upward change. The same goes with my financial aid. I have also been working two jobs for the majority of the summer in effort to raise the money independently.
I have tried so many things to make ends meet. I am confident that I will stay on the track I am on with the new support system I have. I just need this one chance to start over. This is kind of my last option, I’m sorry to bother and ask for this much money. I have been able to get about half of tuition money raised. I need about $20,000 of my $45,000 tuition. Thank you so much for hearing me out. Truly any amount would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, my name is JJ and I’m pretty much a broke college student. I know that there are probably loads of other people out there that need money (so many people do) but I’m hoping that you’ll take a second to consider donating to me.
As I’ve said, I’m a college student currently studying psychology. My ultimate goal is to become a practicing clinical psychologist. I’ve always wanted to help people and I work hard and am really good at psychology (no, I’m not bragging), but that isn’t really enough to cover all of my costs. Because I’m a full-time student and I am involved in things on campus, I can only really have one part-time job, so I work about twenty to twenty-five hours every week, but it’s at minimum wage and I need to pay for my groceries, gas, insurance, etc. so most of that money goes towards that.
To be honest, I can get by, I always have been able to but it is a struggle. I’m in my last year of undergrad and I’ve had to pay to take the GRE test which has taken a significant chunk out of my savings. Mostly, I need money to help build my savings so I am able to go to grad school and actually live. I need to be able to afford an apartment and the rest of my expenses (like food, gas, and other bills).
I’m pretty much a straight-A student with a GPA of 3.8 and all I really want to do is help people any way that I can and I know that clinical psychology is the right field for me to accomplish it. However, I am extremely worried about being about to do so. I am not a partier nor am I in the habit of purchasing unnecessary things so any money that is donated will not be used to buy things like that. Instead, one of my favorite things to do is cook, so any money that is not immediately put into my savings account will be used for my weekly grocery bill.
Depending on the donation, I will also use that money towards my tuition and other schooling bills. I have taken a loan out, but to be honest, I would really rather not borrow any more money than I already have to cover those costs. I will also need to purchase textbooks and a couple of other odds and ends that add up (like notebooks, pens, toiletries, etc.)
Really, any donation would be extremely helpful, whether its a couple dollars or more and I would very much so appreciate it. Thank you so much!
My name is Nadine and I’m 26. Ever since I was young, I’ve had a fascination with the weather and wanted to study it further. My dream was to be a storm chaser and I used to watch the TV show every day after school!
But after a lot of bullying in school, that caused me to completely lose my confidence and drop out it meant that I did not pass any of my exams, and I have no formal qualifications. I did not go to college or university when everyone else graduating from my school did. After moving to the city and financially struggling for a while when I had no family support I ended up doing admin work, which paid the bills, barely. I now work for the emergency services and have been doing so throughout the Covid pandemic, when I have realised that life is short and I am not satisfied with what I do and need to be in a better place financially also. I am now trying to earn qualifications in a field that will help me support my family better.
I’ve wanted to further my education for a while but I also have a 4 year old child who was born when I was 21. My partner stays home full time to look after him, and I am the main money earner in the family, so unfortunately we don’t have the money for me to study and any money we make goes back into paying for our child and our home.
I’m hoping to raise enough to be able to take an online course and get a degree in Meteorology. I have already undertaken several free online courses for this and it is a field that I find incredibly interesting, however, I need a certified version in order to apply for related jobs. I will also hopefully be able to live my dream one day of seeing a real tornado!
Therefore, any donation at all would be greatly appreciated, even (0.01!) and my family would be very grateful. I’m not close with my own family for their financial support and I dont have a wide social circle to ask for donations. However, I strongly believe in paying it forward and if I receive any donations I’ll be sure to put them back in to others who need them when I am able to.
Thank you for reading!
I never asked for money from people. My family always helped me, also friends. But right now, I am desperate. I have finished my medical faculty in Novi Sad, a city in Serbia. Right now, the money is needed for my specialisation in Madrid. Due to Covid situation, I can’t work nor volunteer, there are even more expenses in order to get my visa for Spain. Here, I didn’t want to write about my all family struggles, like my mother’s brain tumors and all medical bills. It isn’t my story to tell. I already sold my apartment to cover it. There is no reason to donate the money to me and not to someone else. I need 600 dollars to make it to my dream job. I am well aware that dreams are luxury in this time. Every donation counts. Help me so one day I can help the others and not to be failed investment of my parents.
Hi my name is Jenna. I am going to be attending college soon, and currently have no savings for it. The typical thing to do to start a college fund is get a job after school. I am only 15 and going to be a senior because I skipped two grades. I am too young for most jobs, even if I had the time for it on top of school and sports. I am a swimmer. I swim on a club team and for my high school team. I’m pretty good at swimming and hope to swim in college. I also have good grades in school which I hope will get me far. When I go to college, I think I want to major in biology. After that, I will apply to med-school at the UT Health Science Center of San Antonio and obviously a few other places, but I really hope to get in because it’s a great medschool. Eventually, I hope to become an Orthopedic Surgeon. Only 600-800 students each year are accepted into ortho surge residencies. With good college funding and low to zero debt, I can become one of very few female orthopedic surgeons in The entire United States and really break gender stereotypes and norms. Any donations will help so THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Hello, my name is Asia and I am a first-generation college student. Right now, I am in need of money to finish my last year of school. Registration for classes for next semester are here and I am unable to register because I have a balance from my previous term. I had used all of the financial aid I could get but am still short $11,427. I have tried to get a personal loan, but most banks do not allow students to take out a loan for prior school terms. Even if I did find a bank willing to allow me to take out a loan for a previous term still the banks would still want undergrad students to have a co-signer. My family members come from lower-class communities and do not have good enough credit scores to be able to cosign a loan for me. If I could receive help here, I vow to give back just like the great people who gave to me in my time of need when I can be as financially stable on my own two feet.
I am studying communications with a concentration in television and film. I am actively seeking for internships that could help me to get my foot in the door, I recently started a new job, but it is impossible to pay the full balance by the time that classes start. Not to mention the other obligations that I already have that keeps me from saving up as much money as I would like. I am desperate and have been searching every day for a way to go back to school to complete my degree. I hope that by obtaining this degree, no one in my family will ever be faced with issues like this ever again. I want the next generation of my family to have the opportunities that I never did but I need help getting there. I am a pretty good student, I can struggle when I have to think about my financial hardships on top of everything else, but all in all I have managed to become a 3.0 student and that took a lot out of me. I am involved in many on campus organizations, one catered to gaining more experience in my field by getting to be hands on and telling real-life stories about my surrounding community. Another, a community service-based organization dedicated to helping other in order to become a better person, celebrating women, and sisterhood.
With just a little help I can become a better me and help change the world, anything that you can give will help. Words of encouragement are helpful too. Thank you!
I’m currently a University Student and sadly I’m not the best in obtaining grants and scholarships so I have been relying on student loans. I’d like to prevent going into further debt. I work minimum wage and most of it goes towards basic necessities and saving up for a car, so I’m basically broke and unable to afford University pricings on my own. I attend University in South Carolina, USA. Any help is truly appreciated as I’m putting most of what money I have currently towards this post.

I am a full-time student at UF, and I am seeking money for help with my tuition fees and living costs. I come from a low-income family and they are unable to support me on my journey in college, which limits my college opportunity and experience.
I am a pre-dental student; school, studying, and extracurricular activities take up all of the time required for me to do well in school. I am an extremely dedicated student and spend all of my days and nights inside of the library doing homework and studying. This makes it extremely difficult to get a job, since my academic performance would suffer. As a first-generation student, it is rather difficult accumulate to college, since I cannot have any advice on courses or cannot afford any tutoring in my high-intensity classes. I am asking for this help so I can continue focusing on my studies to meet my goal of being able to become a dentist. With these donations, I could also focus on volunteering, extracurriculars, and giving back to my community while in school.
When I become a dentist, I plan on making a difference in this world and giving back to poor communities that cannot afford expensive dental care. I hope to grow and help others who worry when they will be able to take their child to the next doctors visit. I plan on becoming a doctor that cares about and prioritizes their patients and can help as much as possible. I have always yearned to help people and make their way of living better in any way. Coming from low-income, I can relate to the stress of not being able to afford a doctor’s visit and having to push back the years I visit, no matter how important health may be. You would be taking a chance on me in helping needy communities.
It is important for me to reach my goals to ensure I can take care of my family when I am older. I have always wanted to provide for my family and sacrifice for them as they did for me. Your donations would help me break the cycle of poverty within my family and to be able to provide for my parents in old-age and my future kids.
Thank you for your time in reading, and I hope you can help me in my journey to success.
I am asking for around $4,000 but anything helps. Thank you again.
I write this despairingly… With the already brutally engrained notion that there is no help for people like me. People who fall through the cracks and lose themselves to the inevitable repetition of ‘poor problems’. There is no safe platform that will not soon collapse under the weight of a hiccup… Which to many, is only a brief interception of normalcy. But for people like me, the tightness you feel in your chest never subsides. All you know is a life of fear, so nothing can scare away the involuntary myoclonic jerks that overwhelm you again and again until there is nothing left of you.
All of my life I have been poor. I have lost touch with the feeling of relief… because every time I feel like I can breathe again, I am reminded that bad things happen to you when you cannot afford to prevent them. I no longer allow myself to give in to that delusion; that something will soon get better. I try not to resent the life I was born into, as there has always been love there, but there has also been pain, addiction, illness, abuse… And I am left asking myself, how can I do better? How can I grow up to be a parent that loves my children enough not to lose myself to drug addiction? How can I prevent the cancer that I’ve begun to hope is coming to me? How can I offer myself to a humble child whose only dream is to go to school so she can someday help people just like her?
Even now, I am still that child. At least, a glimmer of her. In my twenty-five years of life, I have found a way to survive, but I long to find a way to live. This is my attempt. I have worked tirelessly to complete high school, a luxury that I could not have at a time where I needed to work, and at a time that I was ill. I have spent more than half of my life burning out to afford an education so that I could one day make something of myself and take care of my mom. I have now officially received my first offers to school, but because of the hiccups, the familiar delusion, and the digits that follow a dollar sign, I am met with ever-lasting notion once more; there is no HELP for ANIMALS like ME.
That is what the world has taught me. This is what I know. I could write endlessly about my hardships, but I suffer enough from the reminders. This is a pathetic plea for a chance to have a little time, even just a semester, to be reminded of what is good. That there are people who care about other people… That there are people not affected that too hate the systems that ruin us… Those of us who cannot afford to prevent it.
Any bit helps.
Hello everyone, thank you for clicking on my story, I am a 22 year old Latina.
A little back story about me, I was born and raised in Texas up until I was 8 years old. In November of 2006 ICE arrived to our house and took my parents to jail to later sent them back to where they are from (Guatemala) due to them entering the country illegally many years ago. My parents were trying to get their papers fixed, however they unknowing went to a scammer who never did anything to help them. A month after my parents were deported my sisters and I joined my parents in Guatemala and I lived there for almost 10 years, since 3rd grade up until I graduated high school.
I graduated high school back in 2015, in Guatemala, and once I graduated I bought a plane ticket to come back to the US to have a better education. I knew that this was the best opportunity for me and that I was extremely lucky, however I had to leave my whole life in Guatemala, including my parents. I was attending a community college from Fall of 2016 up until Spring of 2018 where I failed my classes for the second semester due to suffering with depression and anxiety from leaving my life in Guatemala and also not knowing what I actually wanted to do with my life. Although it did take me a while to get out of the dark places my mind went during that time, I was able to discover what I want to do in life and that is Social Work.
I was saving up money these last couple of years to be able to pay for college, however due to COVID-19 I lost my job. I am currently only working a part time job that barely pays for my living expenses (I get paid $450 every two weeks). I spent most of my savings on paying bills and living expenses like food and gas, and although it was my fault for failing classes in the past I am not able to apply for financial aid. Therefore I need to pay my college tuition out of pocket.
For this semester alone I need around $18,000 to pay for tuition, I talked with an Advisor from the school and they told me that I could make payments however they would charge me an extra fee for every payment I made. I know it is a lot of money, however I really do appreciate any donation you could make, no matter how small it is. In the end anything will help to be able to fulfill my dream and make my parents and myself proud and no longer ashamed of my past.

Hello, my name is Taylor and I’m a hugger, not a fighter. A lover, not a hater. All my life I have been helping people out with their needs and less cared about my own. It’s not that I’m too shy to ask for help it’s just I always saw it as giving up and admitting you’re weak, but then I realized that asking for help should be the first thing because it shows your interest and passion for something. Also, others might have the same question and are stuck as well even though you thought they had it all figured out. I want to go to Baker college in Cadillac in August but there is no way I can get 10,00+ some if I want to do housing which I really do. I want to be a psychologist more importantly a youth counselor. I like helping people but helping people in that way is always more fun and better. At my house instead of treat others the way you want to be treated it is more treat others more then you would treat yourself. There are five of us at home but the one that does everything is me; the youngest. I do everything except cook, do their laundry, and pay bills. Oh and no groceries since I don’t have a car or a license. Even when I did school at k12 on my computer every time they asked for something I did it. I tried everything from brownie points to just straight asking whether it be to go to a friend’s house or the nearest grocery store growing up. They always said no, but it’s time I treat myself. No one deserves anything but it is nice to have it and get away for a while. If you can’t give $10,000 can you at least give $400? It would be much appreciated. Thanks! Have a great day, *huge virtual hug, and see you when I see you next.
