I worked for 28 years at the same job. I never in my wildest dreams imagined losing my job in 2010 for no real reason. With no other experienced I enrolled at the community college, and was real close to finishing my degree, but I got really sick at the beginning of my last semester and had to abruptly drop my classes. I found out I needed an emergency surgery to remove a large cyst that was supposed to had been removed 5 yrs earlier. At that time I was not close to my father, I left home when I was 16 years old, dropped out of school to support myself, I struggled but I maintained and survived pretty fair. That was really a blessing losing my job, as I became closer to my father, helping him do things and get back and forth to appointments. I have an older brother who always lived with my father in our family home( the one I grew up in as well). In 2015 My father asked me to move in the house and take care of Louie. I didn’t want to decline such a request, as I knew he worried about my brothers well being. My father passed away unexpectedly in 2016 and I moved in to take care of Louie of course. I faced some serious repairs moving in the house and taking over the payments, which doubled at one point it was very hard. I have been on disability and my brother is on SSI. So my only option was to take on payday loans which have now taken over. I have exhausted all possibilities from loans from family members and my credit is ruined. I wanted to return to school, but of course I owe for the last semester and all our money is taken to pay back the payday loans. I have been looking for stay at home jobs with no success as of late. I really would like to pay back the pay day loans $3806.00 and what I owe the college so I can go back to school $1260. As of right now I feel so hopeless and no where to turn. I also feel very sad as if I am letting my father down, as I promised him on his death bed that I would take care of the house and my brother. And Daisy Daisy that cat the came with the house because my Father and I started feeding her. I am still in very much of need of home repairs with plumbing, electrical and foundation. My Dad brought this home in 1965, which was 2 years before I came along, he kept it up pretty well until he was unable to get around so much. I could do so much better for myself, if I was not stressing over debt and could regain my focus on my brothers well being, he is diabetic with chronic kidney disease and a mass on his liver. He has doctors appointments 2 or 3 times a week not to mention my own failing health which is not getting any better with the added stress. Please help me get back on track.
Hello, everyone. I’m trying to remain composed as I write this message to a sea of strangers. My financial insecurity is recent and snowballing before my eyes. I am requesting help to pay my credit card debt of $6406.85 and school tuition of $1449.00, for a total of $7855.85. I would be grateful for any assistance.
My problem started two months ago when I decided to do my own assisting. My mom and dad filed for bankruptcy and were drowning as the process took place. It was to the point where they were going to a food pantry for meals and donating plasma for gas. My mom got so desperate that she reached out to me and asked for help. She has never done that. I gave them whatever I could to help. I exhausted what little resources I had to PayPal them money. It made sick to my stomach to imagine my parents homeless or starving. I felt responsible for their safety because she reached out.
Throughout all of this, I have been working on my Bachelor’s degree. I graduate in February of 2019, but because my finances have been tapped out, I can no longer afford my last set of classes. I only have four more classes until I’m done — I can taste the end. I’ve set up a payment plan and everything just to give myself some time to earn the money. However, I am so bogged down from helping my parents, that I can’t dig myself out in time.
I know these financial problems won’t happen again, because my parents’ bankruptcy has now been finalized. They are okay currently and working on building their savings. They are unable to help due to their own problems.
I do work, and I do volunteer, and I do freelance jobs on the side to earn what I can. Unfortunately, I’m only one person.
I’m sincerely asking for help. Any amount. I’m embarrassed to put myself out there like this. I will even provide writing or editing services to repay back any donation. I will send you books in the summer time. I will make lemon bars or cookies. I will do what I can. I will pay it forward when the time comes.
All I can do is put myself out there and hope for the best. Thank you for listening to me. Any and all help would truly mend my heart. Thank you so much to everyone reading.
Hey there! My name is Victoria and I’m 19 years old. I’m from Maui, Hawaii and Was born and raised there. After graduating high school, I decided that I wanted to move away for college. I ended up accepting attendance at Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. I went there for my freshman year and majored in Psychology. I loved it there. The education is outstanding and the social life is the best! Tempe is such a great college town and everyone is so nice. Unfortunately, My parents have been divorced, my mom is not financially stable as she thought she was and since my dad paid for my whole first year of college, my mom was supposed to pay for my second year but just could not do it and I don’t want to put a burden on ANY of them, so I agreed that I will come back to Maui and just work until I am able to go back to AZ. I am living with my dad now on Maui. I don’t have my own room but I make it work. I’m working full time at a restaurant to make as much money as I can. My main goal now is to move back to AZ and get my own apartment and get a good full time job. Then, eventually I will go back to school but, I want to go back as soon as possible because I’m determined to get my degree! Psychology has my heart. It is so interesting to me. I loved my Psych 101 class!!! Lately, I’ve been itching to go back more than EVER. People here aren’t treating me well and not having my own room is driving me crazy. I love my dad and I’m thankful he is letting me stay at his place but I need to get out and be independent and on my own! I have so many things that I want to do and being here makes me feel like I’m being held back. I would get depressed some days and it would be really hard at work. I’m thankful for everything I have right now, but I’m trying to move forward with my life! I’m ready! I’m NOT the type to beg for money so I don’t even know why I’m on here. But any amount would help me so much. I’m trying to move by the end of next month. I’ve already told my job because I need to get this going. If you actually read to this point then I applaud you and I hope you can help me out any way possible! Thank you so much!
I have always known that I wanted to go to university, ever since I was little, it wasn’t until I started graphic design at college that I realised this dream could come true, I might actually be able to go to college doing something that I love. I was offered an unconditional offer, and am now nearing the end of my first term.
I love university, the people, the experiences, the course, all of it is so eyeopening and inspiring. However, I am finding it hard to keep the motivation to be inspired. I was raised by my mother, who although has always been able to provide for me, has struggled herself, sometimes even missing meals just so that me and my mother could eat. My mother is a truly inspiring women and one day I wish to be like her, as kind and generous as her and as loving as her. unfortunately recently her financial situation got a lot worse, with her being let go from her job she had to find a replacement one. She earns even less than she did before and has no way of helping me financially. I got a job at a local coffee store near to my university, I spend all my spare time either completing my assignments of working in the shop, it is consuming me. I am struggling to make friends due to my absence from social events, as I have no money to fund me attending, any spare money I get I have to pay for my food or equipment and travel to university.
I know this is probably a lost cause and a useless thing to do, but I am hopeful. Hopeful that someone out there will be kind enough to spare me some money to help me out. Hopeful that someone shares the same kindness and generosity that my mother did to me when I was growing up. And hopeful that I will be able to complete college and make something of myself, so I can make my mother proud.
so please, if you can, help me out so I can make my dreams come true and one day I will hopefully be able to make someone else’s dreams come true too.
thank you for taking the time to read this,
My name is Victoria and I am a freshman in college. I have been struggling with a lot of things recently and one of them is money. I have a long story and I want to explain it so that people understand why I am asking for money.
To start, I came from a busy city with a lovely family. Or, so I thought. I lived with my parents and grandparents who helped raised my siblings and me. We always had issues with my father’s side of the family, my aunt for one. They never knew how to act and eventually, my aunt ruined our life. In September of 2017, my aunt managed to manipulate my grandparents and caused a huge fight to result. Police were called by my grandmother and after they left, it was just my parents and my siblings in our home. Things cooled down and we thought nothing of it.
A while later, a deputy arrived at the home to remove my father from the premise. My aunt managed to convince my grandparents that my parents, or mainly my father, had been committing fraud and elderly abuse.
All of us were in shock and later we were kicked out of our home, despite my parents being co-owners of the house and making the payments. We moved to another city in late October of 2017 and managed to struggle with my mother’s dad. He is a hypocritical man, one who preaches false words of religion. Although he still is my grandfather, he did no good to us. He forced us to keep our dogs locked up, our turtles to remain outside in the COLD, and harass us all with his religion.
I was forced to move schools, along with my siblings. In doing so I missed a lot and struggled for a while to catch up with the new one. During my winter break, my grandfather argued with my parents and kicked us out. My family became homeless for sometime, living off of ramen cups of noodles, hot pockets, and whatever we could afford to survive off of. We struggled to find a new home.
When we did, we had to go to court. We went to court against my father’s parents and thankfully, we were able to prove that we were not guilty. In this time, I had to miss school to testify against my own blood. The family I had grown with was no longer blood, and that devastated us all.
Fast forward to now, 2018, and my parents still struggle to make rent and pay for our bills. I was supposed to go to the University of Redlands… but I lost that because my financial aid would not cover the entire cost because their office mixed up all my paperwork. I was forced to go to the community college nearby and now I continue to work hard to eventually transfer in 2 years.
I ask for money to help with my textbooks, parent’s bills, and for myself. I am a full-time student and cannot get a job because I do not have a car. I cannot afford one, and neither can my parents. If you read this, I hope you find it in your heart to send me anything. Should you like to hear more of my story in better details, I will tell you.
Have a blessed day and thank you.
My name is Nicolas. I am 23 years old. At the age of 20 i finished my army duty and then at 21 i wanted to go to university for a bachelor degree computer science. But strange things happened. I was in a relationship with a girl from the high school until last year (7 years). And when i was 21 and i wanted to study, i became dad to a beautiful girl. So instead of me going to college, i started working in a factory to support my family. I was making about 800 euro per month. And my girlfriend somewhere near that also. So we were ok somehow.
But the life is not always as good as you believe it can be. After about two years, i got used to this situation and i was ok with it because i love my family. It was difficult because we almost never had extra money for us. We were barely paying our bills.
Unfortunately i got divorce with my girlfriend and now i can see my daughter only twice a week and also i lost my job because of depression. It was and it still is the most difficult situation i have ever be. I had a family and now i am alone in a house without a job and without a degree to find a job. So i was in my house and thinking what to do with my life and then i decided to go to university and study logotherapy instead of computer science because my daughter has a problem with her speech and i wanted to help her and also i would love to help other people with same problems.
So i went to a lot of universities in my country but all they want a lot of money to study and i don’t have that much money. I got depressed again until a friend of mine suggested this site for a help.
I know that a lot of you will think that this is stupid from me but you can’t imagine how desperate i am with this situation. The only thing that can get me on my feet again and fight in life, is this opportunity from you to help me study and help my daughter and all the other people with these problem. So thank you in advance just for your time to read my story and i hope to write again to tell you that i made it to my target thanks to you.
my studies are 50 000 euro
When I was 8 years old, my mother took me to work on take your daughter to work day. She worked as a pharmacy technician at our neighborhood chain pharmacy. From that day forward my dream was to be come a pharmacist. I loved every aspect of the job— from serving the patients to having an abundance of knowledge. At the age of 24, I made that dream come true. My mother, however, did not see this dream home to fruition as she passed away during my first professional year. Finishing school was a struggle, but with the support of family, friends, and professors, I was able to accomplish my dream. My path did not clear up after the loss of my mother. More trials and tribulations were had- from the unexpected loss of beloved pets to almost losing my brother to a drug over dose. My brothers addiction plagued our family for years following my mothers death. He is now over 3 years sober and continues to work toward a better life. I support my brother financially right now which makes the burden of student loan payments that much more daunting. My brother, who has 2 young children (ages 3 years and 18 months) also works full time, but struggles to make ends meet. He is not eligible for state assistance, unfortunately . My goal is get my total student loan debt to around $100,000. This would allow me to have more funds available to our family. Most people think that I am well off because I am a pharmacist, but the student loan debt coupled with supporting my brother and his family financially leaves us with very little to actually have a life. Most people tell me to give up on my brother, but that is something I could never and would never do. At this time, I work 3 jobs (1-full and 2- per Diem). I work nearly 80
hours each week, but bring home just enough to cover bills after taxes. In addition, last year I had to pay an addition $6000 to the IRS because I made too much money. Due to my income, I am not able to deduct interest. It truly feels like salt in the wound. I wish I could say that my dream job was enough to support us financially, but it sadly is not. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and I appreciate your consideration.
Hello. Thank you for reading this, even if you may decide not to help, I still appreciate it!
To start, I don’t make much at my job to start with and I am looking for another one, but it’s very very hard to find anyone willing to take me. I hope to find another job before Christmas, but in the meantime, I am afraid this site is somewhere I am forced to turn whether I know it is possible to hope or not.
I also have quite a bit of debt because a year or two ago I had to use a good chunk of my credit card and have yet to be able to pay it off fully. I have tried to keep up with payments, but when my debit card is empty and I need food or gas unfortunately the credit card suffers further.
I am also trying to pay my parents for my car, for which I need to get Snow Tires to replace the nearly bald ones still on it, before it truly begins to snow here where I live, as well as the help they have provided for several months’ worth of bills. They have been a huge support and I hate to ask them to help me again. I am also trying to move out of their house and every time I try, I receive another large bill, whether school doctor or life related.
And now my school, my college, has sent me a surprise bill that I have to pay off in the next two months. Needless to say I am a little panicky. I also have been having troubles that I wish to go to the Doctor for, pain in my chest and constant fatigue, but I am constantly talking myself out of any such trips, because I am scared of what those trips could reveal and therefore what exactly they would end up costing me, money.
I would be so unbelievably grateful if you could help even the slightest bit. With the state of my job, my car, my apartment search, my credit card debt, my bills and college tuition and life in general, I have so much I am stressing over, and just, anything to help alleviate that stress would be huge to me.
Thank you so much for your time and if you do donate, your generosity! It really does mean lot to a poor college student in need!

Hello Everyone! My name is Miller Coleman and I’m currently a 20 year-old college student from West Tennessee. I’ve been blessed with an amazing opportunity to serve our Republic as an intern for my local representative, David Kustoff. I am working 2 jobs along with my full time studies and unfortunately I am still unable to fully fund my way through Washington DC. As you may know, the District of Columbia is a very, very expensive place to live for anyone, especially a struggling student such as myself. I am studying both history and political science with a minor in the French language, so my schedule is always full with school work as well as work to support myself. I wish things were different, but I am forced to go online and seek a better option in an attempt to fund my next adventure. I am hoping this will be a stepping stone into a fantastic career that God has lit for me. As a United Methodist, I’ve been taught to always serve and I see this as the first step in a long life of servitude to my fellow man. While living in DC, my rent could cost upwards of $1,000 per month plus utilities, food, and subway faire. Any donation or even share of my cause can help me along the way. While in DC, I also plan to further my Masonic studies as I have already attained the 1st Degree in freemasonry and hope to continue this path forward. I can make a solemn promise to you that any donation given will not come in vain, but will help a young student find his career and be better able to serve his nation. I am proud of these United States and want to dedicate my life to bettering our constitutional government not just for myself, but for future generations. My patriotism and my desire to serve God will help me along the way, but I cannot do it without some help from outside sources. You can be the difference in my life. You can help me realize my lifelong dream of working for the federal government and serving our country. Please also feel free at anytime to personally contact me as I will always want to hear what you have to say. I want to go to Washington to help this nation and our world, but I desperately need your help! Thank you and God Bless!
Hello, first of all, thank you so much for taking the time to read this. My name is Paola and I currently live with my parents in the US… my dream has always been to study and become someone in life, but with the lifestyle that I am living in that dream seems impossible. I am not asking for someone to come and fix my whole life because I know that’s impossible. I hate living here, I hate the town I’m in and I just want to go to college and be something… asking help from my parents to go to college is literally a pain, they laugh every time… And i know for a fact I do not have their support like I wish I had… I am currently working full time trying to save so I can move out of the country and become a college student so I can help people later on. And also to move out from my parents toxic and abusive household. Ever since the passing of my sister I been in a dark state of mind, i feel like i would be happy if she was still with me but I cannot take it anymore. My parents fight all the time and make my life miserable. I want to run away and create a new life. I am so unhappy in this place it’s unbearable. From what I’m making I can afford to get a place but not for my tuition for college or books. Please. I am begging for help to archive my dream. I’m trying so hard but a little help would help a lot… I am also doing this for my her… (My sister) who always was and will continue to be by my side. I wish you all a good holiday season and again thank you for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it.

Hello my name is Linzy Sheeder. First I will begin by telling a little about myself. I am a 22 year old college student here in Petersburg, Virginia. I have been out of my parents house and living with my amazing fiancé since the age of 18. I am working towards my degree in business administration. I have been paying for school tuition, books, and supplies all out of pocket. My fiancé and I used to run paper routes in the tristate area just to make ends meet and pay for my school. Unfortunately, we are now both out of work due to our company doing lay offs. Newspapers just don’t sell as they used to. Now going more into our personal life, we had been told that we are unable to ever conceive a child of our own. However, about two months ago we were blessed with the news that we were pregnant! We we’re unbelievably excited! At about 6 weeks along we couldn’t contain our excitement and we told the news to all of our family and friends! Everyone we knew cried tears of joy at the news! At about 10 weeks our doctor told us that there was no longer a heart beat and he was certain we were going to have a miscarriage. We were heartbroken. It didn’t feel real to hear this news. We had no idea how to tell our family. On top of this we then found out about the lay offs at our job. We’ve both slipped into our own versions of depression trying to cope with everything going on. Bills are beginning to pile up and tuition for spring semester is approaching slowly. We have no idea how we’re going to make ends meet as we’re looking for new employment. We currently have an apartment where we are $471 behind on November rent and December rent is $1,100 a month, electricity $150 a month, a car note of $320 a month, car insurance at $175 a month, phones at $200 a month, food and gas around $300 a month. My spring semester tuition will be upwards of $2,083 and books/supplies will be $500. We also have a substantial amount of tax debt from the two years we’ve been running papers on 1099 pay. Lastly, we are drowning in credit card debt from years ago that we can’t seem to get out from under. Not only have we fallen on hard times financially, but also emotionally and mentally. Our relationship and mental health have also been at stake. I know there is little that people can do to help us with dealing with our loss. However, anything that anyone could do to help us ease our financial burden would be greatly appreciated. My goal for joining this site is that I’m at least able to catch up November and pay our rent for the month of December. Getting to pay my tuition and remain in school this semester would simply be a blessing. Thank you to all!

In my family, I’m the first one to ever have the opportunity to attend college. This was possible because I had help from my father who financially supported me. After 3 semesters, he experienced a financial crisis which made it impossible to support me on my educational journey.
I remember everything like it only happened a few days ago, from nervously awaiting my approval or denial through the application process to the heart racing moment when I stepped into my first class saying ‘I finally made it’.
Sadly, with the recent situation I’m not sure if I’ll have financial support to complete my journey to education. I’m hoping that soon I’ll be able to get the help I need.
Growing up I was always fascinated by technology thus I was excited to learn as much as possible and utilize my knowledge to help the elderly who weren’t technologically advanced. For example, an older man needed help with his desktop when he couldn’t afford the prices people were charging for repairs. So I decided to help him free of charge even though he offered to give me a tip. Since then I’ve helped other people and also younger kids growing up with the passion I have for computers.
With that everlasting love in my heart and mind I decided to pursue Computer Science as my major. In doing something I love this much plus with the drive from my motivation I was able to maintain a high GPA even when I heard that I wouldn’t be able to continue studying due to financial reasons. When I realized that I was maintaining my GPA throughout my struggles I had a feeling of pride even though I was sad knowing it had to come to an end. With some help I would like to go again even stronger, then push myself to complete my goal of going to graduate school which will further prepare me for my career.
That’s why I’m reaching out to everyone here with a heart filled with complete hope that you may help me achieve my goals of finishing college. Help me please to fulfill my dreams of studying.
I’m extremely excited now because I know with your help and with the money I’ve been continuously saving I can make this a reality. I cannot wait to see the person I become in the future after I achieve my goals. Thank you so much for this opportunity!
Dearest reading this who can help someone out. I thank and salute you for your endeavors to reaching this platform.
My little sister 22 years old now has been going to a community college and paying for her college out of pocket for 3 years now. She started with a phlebotomy course got a job and decided to go after her dreams by going to college. While she made this decision she sacrificed going to a college that her friends go to and chose a better suited college for her budget. She didn’t ask mom and dad to pay for her college once. She didn’t take out a loan.
However, this journey of going to work and college full time, somewhere along the line took a toll her on health. She had to be admitted to ER many times because of panic attacks and was admitted.
To keep her mind off work and to look forward to things in life. We encouraged her traveling around. She then too paid for her own travel needs. She has a big heart she gives and treats people every chance she gets birthdays, friends day, every occasion making everyone feel special.
In her need to do that and cutting down a few hours of work while going to school full time. She isn’t able to pay for her next semester in full. She reached out to me too late to pay half. Which I am unable to do for her. She has helped me out so much since we were small. I wish I can do something for her trouble.
She will fall out if there’s a gap between her studies. She’s a straight A’s Student. I will be encouraging her to apply for scholarships soon.
If we can cover her tuition fee for even one semester of $3,000. That will be a gesture that will make her feel this world is beautiful indeed.
I have never done anything like this before, but I am willing to give it a shot considering my circumstances.
I am a first-generation college student. I go to class full-time as well as work as a pharmacy technician to pay for my tuition and living expenses. I am in my senior year, about to graduate in May. I have been offered a seat at my top choice of pharmacy schools, but I am struggling immensely trying to pay all of my fees to accept my admission.
I come from a very low income family, so all odds were against me even getting to college, let alone getting to a doctorate program. I have been putting myself through my undergrad alone, with no help financially. My entire life’s work has been dedicated to this dream of pharmacy and I have worked my tail off in my academics to get to where I am today. I would be absolutely devastated if I wasn’t able to attend simply because I am not able to pay the admission fees required.
I have already spent everything to my name to pay the $500+ just to apply. Now, as I am struggling to recover, I still have to come up with the money or a $70 charge for a background fee and then fees for drug testing, required shots and tests, etc.
Not only this, but I still have to pay for my last semester of undergrad tuition in a few months. If I am able to pay these fees and reserve my seat at pharmacy school, I am also going to have to move to a different state and find a new apartment, which is going to be another financial strain.
I know I am probably not as deserving as many of the people that post on this site. But, if I am given the opportunity to pursue my dream and get to and through pharmacy school, I hope to one day return any generous donation given to me to other people on this site. I just need help getting there at the moment.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story, even if there was no donation. I appreciate it very much.
Hi, my name is Whitney Sharp. I am 18 and I live in a very small house that is falling apart with 3 other people. I have a little brother, a mom and a dad who all live with me. I don’t wish for much but only to have money to help out my family and go to college. Many years as a kid I didn’t think I’d be able to do my dream job, or jobs. I wanted to get enough money to buy my technology, I needed and to pay off my debts in college. Our income is very low and we barely get by half the time, sometimes I have to work hard to get extra money from my neighbors to pay for gas or even groceries to get us through a day or two. Some days we wouldn’t have any food, with two hungry children it’s hard to buy enough food for us. I couldn’t get a job while I was in highschool because if I did, I would be making my family more broke, mom or dad can get a job, dad is disabled and mom has to stay here to take care of all of us. She is the best mom in the world. She puts all the extra money she gets and spends it on us and things we have to have. It really puts me down that she has 2 shirts and 1 pair of pants. My father doesn’t have much either. I just want to get enough money to buy my supplies for college and my technology for my animation/artist career, and my photography career. Plus money to get my mom and dad’s house fixed, we can’t even move because our income is so low, and we have a broken septic which will cost us 3k. I told my mom if I ever got 3k I would give it to them to fix their septic, plus any money left over to fix the house a little. At the moment my room wall on the outside is rotting as we speak. I added it all up from my fixing my house and it would add up to $150,000 all together. I’m needing to get a car and pay for my dorm items. I only ask for help for everything, I leave in the next fall so next august. Please help me I will thank you for every donation. Every dollar will only go back to my funds for my family and my college.

I grew up on less than a $20,000 a year income in a family of four. Both of my parents were disabled; my mother has Fibromyalgia and a number of other illnesses but still pushed and persevered throughout my life to hold jobs as a teacher assistant and a daycare worker because she wanted to show me and my brother that no matter how hard things are we should still try. My father had heart disease and a learning disability and eventually died of cardiac arrest it several years ago when he was 42.
Despite our family’s struggles, not a day went by when my younger brother and I ever went hungry because there was no food to eat. They never did anything illegal to make it happen, I don’t know how they did it but I will never forget the miracles my parents (especially my Mother) did for me and I promised myself I would love my Mom and always take care of her for everything she’s done. But I’ve run into a problem: About a year ago, I became no longer eligible to receive Grad Plus Loan due to my credit history and without it, I cannot financially afford to finish Grad school. While an undergraduate student, I used two credit cards while working part-time and in school full-time. Juggling the two was overwhelming, and with little knowledge at the time of how critical the impact of my credit is, the decision was made to quit my job and finish school with every intention to pay the remaining credit balances off one day. However, in mid-2017 that decision caught up to me. I have learned my lesson with credit cards and make no excuse for my mistake. But if my remaining school balance at American International College is not covered in time for the Spring 2019 semester, I will become unenrolled as a student and unable to complete my last and final semester of graduate school and likely unable to give my Mother and our family the support and better life they deserve.
The only 2 ways the remaining school balance (and college tuition overall) can be covered, which will enable me to finish graduate school, is either by one of the two adverse accounts on my credit being paid in full, or my remaining school balance with the college being paid in full directly. The amount of the adverse credit accounts are $607 and $1935; one of these accounts is required to be paid in full or the school balance to be paid in full directly, which is about $7300. I have been working to make payments on the $7300 school balance to keep it out of collections while also trying to save up in order clear my adverse accounts. But I will not be able to cover my expenses alone in time for the Spring 2019 semester. If you are able to, my family and I would love it if you would please make a donation to help. Any small amount will greatly be appreciated and be put to good use.
I graduate from California State University this May and am so scared about what is coming next. I am currently surviving thanks to grants and financial aid that help pay for books and rent. I receive food stamps monthly to pay for food, but they run out before the end of each month. I am in debt to pay my tuition, but that is expected with any college career. I have been solely responsible for paying for all of my schooling.
Once I graduate, I will no longer have these finances to rely on. I am currently working a minimum wage job, but only part time since I am a full time student. My current roommates all move back home during the summers, but I don’t have anywhere to go so I will have to find another shared room (I can’t afford a personal room in southern California). As I see work, the cost of transportation will also be a heightened expense (I currently receive a discounted TAP pass as a student).
I have crunched the numbers and even working full time at my job, I will struggle to make ends meet. During this transition, not only will I have to find new housing and prepare for higher transportation expenses, but I will also have to invest in a new wardrobe that will be appropriate for my new role.
I am looking for financial help to find me through this gap period (May-August) while I interview for jobs in my field. I will be graduating with a BA in Sociology and am aiming for a position in Human Resources. However, next semester I am taking a position as a research assistant so I hope that that will be a networking opportunity.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I transition into my professional life.
My name is Sherrynthia and I am a junior at Jacksonville State University. During the duration of my education at JSU I have endured many hardships, but when my fiancé passed in April, I could not shake it off as easily. He was my everything and was my motivation ! He passed a few days before my birthday and we had just received scholarships the day before his death. I had to quit my job to attend counseling and to focus on my school work. I need about $500 to pay for my tuition this semester. More is always welcomed, but I am just asking for $500. I have saved a few hundred . Like I mentioned before I do have a scholarship, but it does not cover my whole balance.
My paypal information is PayPal.Me/Sherrynthia
Hi, I’m 22 years old and I’m still in college. I’ve wasted 4 years of my time in a course that I’m not sure if I want to make a career out of. I was supposed to finish college 2 years ago but depression got me lose interest on; well everything and having an eating disorder didn’t help my situation either. Overtime, my health is at stake both mentally and physically.
A year ago, my mother got sick. She was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer stage 4. I was already at my worst academically and hearing her sick made me postpone college and care for her as I come from a family of 5 siblings. I’m the youngest one. My other siblings couldn’t care for our mother and being the only one in the family that has not worked or has other responsibility such as having a kid or a husband; it was only natural for me to be her caretaker.
It was heartbreaking seeing my mother in such a frail state. Not to mention her in agonizing pain on a daily basis because of the unstoppable growth she had just underneath the jawline because of the cancer. It was the last stage, it was spreading to her brain. The only way I thought that could make her feel better was to promise her that I would do better in school so that she had something to hold on to life but I was also being reasonable and have to come to terms that she might not make it. I thanked God that as of present time, she is living and breathing. After a year of radiotherapy and chemotherapy; she slowly got better. But, it causes her to drastically loose weight from 121 pounds to an alarming 60 pounds.
Student loan has been breathing down my neck and the interest kept stacking up. Every month since June of this year. I really need to take the pressure off and could use the financial help. I have an overall 2,500 usd worth of student loan. Which may sound little to some but where I come from, the exchange of currency is 4 times of its value. I have 10,000 MYR worth of loan that I need to pay off.
It’s ridiculous to ask strangers to pay off my loan. To be honest, I just need it pay off for the first few month or so before I can go out there and find a job after I’m done with college. I’m so close guys! I’m just a few month away from graduating.
I fear that I won’t have enough of an income to help my family and to seek out medical help for my mental illness because of this student loan even if I can get a job.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the help. God bless all of you.
Hi! My name is Abby and I’m a 20 year old college student. I attend a small college where I am a soccer player and am taking 18 hours of classes in a semester. I am currently pursuing a degree in psychophysiology with a minor in Spanish with hopes of one day becoming an Occupational Therapist. With this degree, I want to be able to help children improve their daily function and I’m hoping that my minor will allow me to be able to help a wide variety of families. I want to be able to actually communicate with families and children instead of having to ask them to try to communicate with me. I don’t want to make anyone feel as though they have to be something they are not and I don’t want them to feel uncomfortable or out of place when communicating with me. Everyone deserves to be heard and to receive adequate care. Children deserve to be able to have normal function or at least they deserve their lives to be a little bit easier by being able to do simple tasks.
I really need help paying off my tuition, so I can continue to pursue this rewarding career. I am also hoping to attend a study abroad program in Spain with my college. This experience would allow my to experience a completely different culture which, in turn, would allow me to reach out to people and help them. I hate being a burden to others and asking for help is really hard, but I’m having to swallow my pride and ask for help. As long as I keep pursuing this goal, so many people would benefit from a stranger’s generosity. I really don’t need a whole lot of assistance, just enough to get me going and to make a payment towards my tuition. My current tuition bill is about $3000, and honestly I don’t need help with all of it. I am working towards paying it off, but some assistance would be very beneficial. My parents have offered to pay for it, but they have already done so much for me and I just want to show them that I can contribute to my own education.
I really appreciate any help that anyone can give me. I am truly grateful for a kind community that wants to help someone they’ve never met. And with that help, they would be helping a future generation.
Hello my name is Shanice and I am 23 years old. I was recently accepted into medical school which was one of the most exciting times of my life, however, this whole process has been extremely costly and stressful. I applied to 10 schools and attended multiple interviews which has taken a major toll on my finances. Application fees, cost of travel, and cost of lodging for interviews have left me in a state where I can barely pay rent. I am struggling to pay off my credit card which I ended up maxing out to afford medical applications and the cost of traveling to interviews. I must now pay off 3000 dollars of credit card debt in addition to paying a nonrefundable acceptance deposit of 1000 dollars by December 14 and and 700 by March. I am already working full time as a behavioral therapist, tutoring students after work, ubering during my spare time and have recently turned to filling out online surveys to make additional money. I cancelled my health insurance in order to cut down on bills and I do not know what else to do. I plan to take out loans, and apply for scholarships to fund tuition. However, I will not be able to access these funds until the start of the 2019 school year. The cost of wanting to care for others is overly expensive but I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and if you would like to find out more about me and my situation please don’t hesitate to email me.
My name is Bailey and I am a 21 year old college student. My family has experienced many hardships and due to an overwhelming amount of medical bills, I am on my own trying to pursue a higher education! School has always been a dream of mine it is very stressful trying to focus on school while the constant worry of paying tuition in on your mind. I am pursuing a medical career in physical Therapy and this semester I am still $3700.00 short. If I cant pay the remaining amount I will no longer be able to attend the university for the next semester. I am extremely dedicated to this field of study and excel in school. I just need that little bit of support to keep me going!! I am a soldier in the Army and have exhausted all the available funding for this year and still short. I would greatly appreciate any support and help you are willing to give!! Thank you!!
I am sure my story isn’t abnormal from most people, secondary school is expensive and life happens.
I had the opportunity to continue my education at the age of 25, right around the same time I got married. While being married I had to post pone a semester or two due to be husband losing his job after the company he worked for shut down. Then postponing again when he decided to leave. I ended up moving back to my parents house in hopes to regroup and get some joint bills paid. When I say he left he disappeared and left me with a mountain of debt. After a semester had passed I tried to go back and finish but I wasn’t able to juggle the two jobs and living an hour away. I still owe the university I went to $850, which I have been making small monthly payments to chip down the balance until I am able to get it paid off completely. I am wanting to go back and finish what little I have left to do, I prefer to finish at that school, but even if I find a different place I would want to go to I have to get the $850 paid off so they will release my transcripts. I am also wanting to hopefully get more than the initial $850 so I don’t need to get anymore student loans to pay for the additional 20 hours needed to finish.
Hello everyone, I am a 19 year old college student. I live with and was raised by my single parent that has to go above and beyond just to make ends meet. Unfortunately, that’s not enough. Over the last few years we’ve been bouncing from place to place, sleeping on people’s couches. With that being said I have absolutely nobody to turn to when I need help financially. There is not a single family member that I can turn to in this time of need. Also, I don’t have any public assistance.
Typically, I am not one to ask for help but I feel like I’m at a dead end here. This is really my last resort. It feels like every time I turn around I owe money (not because I put myself in these situations) and it’s becoming extremely exhausting and overwhelming. This has put me in such a dark place that I can’t seem to get out of. As previously stated, I am a college student full-time. I currently have an internship, but the amount paid is little to none.
To be clear, I am not asking for money to cover the costs of my recreational activities. The money I’m asking for is for financial debt such as tuition and other things school related and bills where I have no control of the costs. I aspire to be a successful forensic accountant in the future. Being a forensic accounting major requires books costing hundreds of dollars. Between the hours of the internship and school, I don’t have the time in my schedule to seek another job, and believe me, I’ve tried. I’ve tried to find freelance work, even become a sitter, but those are pretty dead-end for me considering the lack of experience in those areas. I’m saying all of this to say I’ve tried every way that I know how to have a good source of income and I have no results. I have a good head on my shoulders, but this financial burden is weighing on me. If anyone is able to donate me money I would gladly appreciate it and trust that your money won’t go to waste. I am a very responsible teen that is longing to be in control of my financial priorities which is school.
This is my adorable husband, and I love him so much. We are expecting our first baby in February, after miscarriages, tests, medical procedures, and surgery. We are elated.
My dear husband graduated with nearly 100k of student debt. Despite both working in non-profits, we have sacrificed and scrimped. We share one car, we have taken extra jobs delivering pizza, and been a care taker to an elderly gentleman. We have accomplished the amazing feat of lowering our debt to 63K in just under 3 years. (Which means we have paid off almost 45K).
Our opportunities and means are changing drastically with the arrival of a baby. It was a difficult year of medical expenses and life always brings the unexpected. We are expecting more expenses than ever and need another car. My husband generously said that we will not be spending anything on Christmas for ourselves this year, but will set aside an amount, as we love to do each year, to help others and give to those whose need is greater than our own. We both know that if we always consider ourselves to poor to help others, we will never become the people we wish to become.
I am looking for help to pay down our debt as a secret surprise to my husband. We have been taking a 12 week financial course this fall, and have learned that no matter how much money we have, it is our own ability to manage money that matters, or else we will end up in a cycle of debt. We are determined to get our of student debt, and remain debt free for life. We also have done the math over and over and know that we have many more expenses than we can afford next year.
We aim to be the kind of people who can pay it forward to others struggling. I want to honor my husband’s generous nature by organizing to give him some extra funds to help pay off our debt, and be able to afford the medical bills of birth, the needs of a new baby, baby sitter, and the extra car we will need to get the baby to and from said baby sitter.
I look at our life and know that we are lucky. We have each other. We have a healthy baby on the way, we have jobs, and we have a future. We are not the kind of get beat down. We will always get back up, and try harder. However, at our current rate, we will be in debt til past our 40’s. We have all the knowledge of how to manage money, but debt will keep up in bondage well past the important saving years for our future. We want to be debt free as soon as possible, be able to save for emergencies, be able to save for college tuition for our own child, and help others.
Please consider investing in our future and our desire to give back.
Our names are Joel Herrera and Jayson Alexander Herrera Correa. We are students at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) as well as brothers. We were raised by our single mother and we have a younger sister, Melody as well. My brother and I are the first of our family to attend college. Being the children of a single immigrant mother meant that we had a very little of even making it into a college, but God has always shown his glory through our family’s life. Recently we have come across some difficulties with obtaining the money in order to stay in school and are at risk of having to drop out due to the cost. Jayson is barely half way through his first semester of an extremely competitive cinema program and Joel is on his second year on his way to a degree in Mass Communications. We have prayed restlessly on this topic and we decided that starting a Go Fund Me would be the best way to get our message out and ask for help. I only wish to be able to finish these years of school so that I am able to help out my community later, but with the odds stacked against us it is difficult not to feel overwhelmed. Jesus told us because “we don’t want to offend them, go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.”(Matthew 17:27). We believe that this is the fish we are called to catch, as to not offend the school.
Hi all, I’m really embarrassed to be here asking for anything but I don’t have any one else to ask. This is a last resort for me.
I’m a graduate student at one the top institutes in the UK, I really want to pursue research in this field but lately I just feel so bad at my circumstances and I am so depressed about how bad things have gotten. I did an undergraduate degree in a natural science and now I’m studying energy engineering in the chemical engineering department. I have a scholarship that covers about 80% of the tuition fees but I’m really struggling with daily living expenses now and I’ve just been limited to one meal at the day currently but I don’t have any money left. I already worked full time in an office and had a part-time job on the side in retail last year before my course started but I guess it wasn’t enough! I feel really awful about this.
I have been applying for jobs everyday and waiting, I have a job interview on Friday &Saturday so I’m really hoping I will get one of those jobs but in the meantime I don’t have any money to feed myself with. I will continue to apply for more jobs daily and see what comes up. I’m a bit restricted with which jobs i can apply for because the university limits the number of hours we can work per week, and my university schedule makes it a bit difficult. And I also can’t afford the medication I usually take for my anxiety or my pills for anemia. I don’t have any clothes to wear for the autumn/ winter weather either, I can survive without the warm clothes, but I would truly appreciate any money to buy food and school supplies. It’s really hard for me to concentrate when I’m hungry. I’ve got my rent bills coming up soon, so the remainder of any money donated or the remainder of my tuition fees which are collected at the start of each semester. I’m trying to get up to earn up to £2000 for this.
I already sold my ipad which I use for reading and my DSLR which I got as a gift a few years back. I really didn’t want to part with the DSLR. I’m suffering from depression a lot nowadays, and it was the only hobby I could really engage with lately. I am not part of any societies and I didn’t go to the gym either (both cost money and I would rather spend the time working at this point) aside from being climate change ambassador and volunteering at local schools with the women in engineering society. I don’t really have anything else of value that I could sell, other than my laptop. But I will keep looking to see what else I might be able to sell.
I come from a low income background and I’m not in contact with my parents. They aren’t in good financial circumstances and even if they were, and they have never shown any interest in my well being and they have never supported my journey through education. I have siblings but they have their own financial problems and they don’t contact me very often, I can’t ask for their help.
I’ve been crying a lot lately and losing a lot of sleep, I really tried hard and I’ve been studying so much just hoping to distract myself. I know the odds are against me and I should give up but I really wanted to pursue this field. I hope in future, I can help other students once I get a job and become an alumni. I’m sorry, but I’m trying! Any help is very very sincerely appreciated, thank you so much for even reading this far.
Even if you can’t help with tuition/rent, anything that can go towards food and my medication would be great.
Good morning, afternoon and evening to all.
I like most am pretty skeptical about these sights, but I also have heard of crazier things to be true. Just recently historical events as evidence. That being said I will do my best to save you the small talk and cut to the chase.
I am trying to turn the next page, start the next chapter, however you want to phrase it. I am stuck from a large sum of debt from wanting to be the next Gordon Ramsey, going to culinary school and yet sadly did not get a call back from food network after finishing and doing the chef thing for about 8 years.
So now here I am, trying to pay bills, save up money to buy the ring, get the down payment for an apartment to move into and start my life. My debt is something that I like many my age and my generation struggle with (Talking to you millennials).
I am a dollar short and now several days late and I since my gas station clerk refuses to sell me the winning lotto ticket I am willing to see who wants to help someone out. Anything is more then what I have now and if you decide nevermind and rather help someone else out, that’s great too. But we are all human, we all make mistakes (I just happen to make mine before I learned that I should of listening to those older then me when I was only 16) So thank you ahead of time, I have no idea if anyone is even going to read this but who knows. Let’s see where it goes?
My name is Nic. I am at one of the lowest points in my life. It was really hard for me to even make a post on this website, because I have always been able to handle my own weight. However, life has hit me with a hardship that has been difficult to bounce back from. At the beginning of this year, I was going to school, working & taking care of my ill mother. I lost my job 5 months ago due to it closing. I have run out of funding to complete my Bachelor’s Degree, but I am still taking care of my mom. I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to give up, but I’m not a quitter so I am going to stand firm and finish this race. I am grateful for whatever is giving to me at this time. As of today my student loan is $54,379.47 & my mother has doctor appointments twice a week that I drive her too. She is undergoing skin graphs on the bottom of her feet. The doctors want to see if that will help with her feet to heal which is very deep. I didn’t want to post the pictures before the surgery because they are too graphic. She has not walked in months. She has gained weight since she hasn’t been able to walk on her feet & it is a struggle. I really want to go back to work but I don’t trust anyone to take care of my mom like I will. I am taking care of her with her social security income and I am budgeting that to make it month by month. Most days I don’t eat to make sure she has food since she is diabetic. This is my plea for financial help. I am grateful for whatever is given. Thank you so much! Nic.
Hello, I graduated high school 1 year early. I started college at 17 but dropped out 6 months in due to the owners of the school being super harsh. The environment they set for the school cause my anxiety to get super high, to the point where my doctor put me on 3 anti-depressants. I quit because being there made me physically sick, I couldn’t hold down any food, I was losing sleep, I became super depressed, and even thought about trying to take my own life for a second time. I realized that they weren’t worth the stress and emotional breakdowns that I was constantly having and decided it was better if I just dropped out and paid them back. Now I have 2 student loans out in my name and have to pay back my pell grants. I do realize this is my fault and I need to take full responsibility for my actions. I have a part time job but I have to pay my car payment, doctor bill from my first suicide attempt, my phone bill, car insurance. I know you are probably wondering why I don’t ask my parents for help, well, my mom has to get back surgery and is going to be off work for at least 3 months, and my dad works his butt off but doesn’t get paid much, after he pays bills we barely have enough for food, I pitch in when I can. I owe 2,618.64 for my student loan and 5,954.63 for my Pell Grant repayment. I realize there are other people you could help. I’ve tried to get a second job but I have to help my brother with his school work, cook, clean, etc. I also realize that most people have it worse than me. I’m really trying to pay everything off but after I pay all my bills and get food and stuff I have no money. I’m trying to save so I can move out of my dads. I guess this is the part where I leave my paypal link… https://www.paypal.me/jade104
I’m in a really bad situation and I’m going to go out on a limb here to ask for help. It just seems like everything that could possible go wrong is going wrong at the same time.
I just finished school last year, and played off my student loan in full last month, using every penny to my name, expecting to be refunded by Amazon’s (my employer) tuition reimbursement program. However, the process is taking much longer than I thought and it could be months before I see a refund.
As it is, my income is responsible for taking care of three people, and I only make $14.25/hour right now. Whenever we would find ourselves a little short to cover a grocery store trip, we had savings to use, but this isn’t the case anymore.
This leads me to the second part of my problem. I sell insurance as a side business for extra income from commission, and eventually plan to make it my fulltime job. However, last week I dropped my phone and the screen will not turn on. It’s unusable, and I can’t do any calling or appointment scheduling until I get it fixed or get a new one, whichever is cheaper. We rely on that income to be able pay bills, and it’s gone, so we are really struggling to live right now. We hardly had enough money to cover rent this month, and we will have to scrimp and save to make it next month.
I’m not looking for a specified amount, but at least $800 would be great, so that I can stock that away for rent and that won’t be a worry anymore.
I’m not one to ask for help very often, but I’m begging you, any little amount would be helpful. To me and my wonderful family. Thank you in advance. You can donate to paypal.me/matthewwalls98
I am in great need of $2000 USD to complete my education. I am been growing up in a poor household and it has gotten to the point where my parents are no longer able to assist me with my schooling. I am an outspoken student with big dreams, however, I will not be able to fulfill my dreams not having the money to finance a good education. That is 1 of the biggest flaws in our society (children not getting a good education). Children are the future and without a good education how can they lead us later on? I am kindly asking for a donation from a willing philanthropist who sees the value of a good education. I would really appreciate it. Thanks for taking the time to read my message.
Ever since I was young my mother wanted to do all that she could for me and now I just want to do whatever I can for her. My mother has type 2 diabetes and her insulin prices have sky rocketed, my father has health issues that keep him alongside my mother from working. I’m a senior at a 4 year university who has been in college now for 6 years due to transferring and money issues, and I can’t afford anything. I joined a sorority 3 years ago and try my best to save whatever I make over the summer to pay for the entire year but its hard to save 1,200 dollars over a course of 3 months. My financial aid has completely run out and I’m not allowed to borrow anymore money even though each year my parents have had to dole out something to contribute to my tuition. I can’t afford to buy my books and my rent and utilities are more than I can afford. This year has been the roughest by far. I can’t afford groceries so, I go days without eating an actual meal. My one credit card that barley has a limit is maxed out because I needed to pay for my mothers medicine. My biological father hasn’t helped me since I started in college and all of the financial responsibility is on my parents. Seeing as this is my last year in college I would love to be able to pay for things and not have to worry about constantly owing something on a bill. I live 2 hours from my parents and don’t want to keep asking them to send me money that they don’t have. My parents house is close to foreclosure, all of my step siblings that have jobs continue to ask for loans from them and I want to do my best to help any way that I possibly can. Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
My name is Courtney and I’m a single mother. I have always worked multiple jobs to provide a stable home for my daughter. I decided to go back to school last year to earn a Professional Coaching Certification. I have been paying my monthly tuition bills, however in February, my ex-husband decided to no longer help with expenses for our daughter. This has left me in a huge financial bind and I am only months away from completing my certification. I have amassed bills in excess of $12,000 (tuition payments being made to my credit cards) and I’m looking for assistance in helping me to pay down my debt so I can finish my program strong. I also have an unanticipated tax debt, which I tried to dispute for my state taxes. I was expecting a refund and the state says I owe over $1,100. I have always been in the saving mindset so this temporary setback is not only a financial challenge, it’s an emotional challenge as well.
I have always been on the giving end of things, even when I didn’t have much. In 2016, I lost my sister and in August we lost our home in the great flood of 2016. I persevered through all that without needing to ask for financial help I have changed my lifestyle and my daughter understands that we can’t do all of the things that we use to do because of the reduction in my income. She is a great kid and understands that I work very hard to provide a home with the basic necessities. I am hopeful that once I get my certification I can begin to make the money to be able to return to our normal life.
This site is really a last resort for me. I am not really comfortable asking for help, but I know that I can’t tackle this debt alone. I have exhausted all my resources from selling clothes at the resell shops, to Poshmark and even selling my daughters clothes at weekend consignment sales. As soon as I get a few dollars, here comes a bill. I am organizing a rummage sale for this weekend. At this point the money is not coming in fast enough for me to keep up.
I try to keep a positive upbeat attitude through it all! Once I get back on my feet, I hope to pay it forward!! Anything that you can provide will be most appreciated.
*I tried to upload multiple images, but it would only allow 1.
Thank you in advance!
Hello, my name is Christopher Cabral and I’m raising money to finish paying off my college tuition which is due in two days and I’m only 2,000 dollars short for this semester only. I’m currently on the path to getting associates degree in business management and my goal is to transfer to a four year college and get my masters in aerospace engineering. I can cover my next semester and the others after that. It’s just that I’m in a very tough situation right now, that it’s got to the point to when I have to go to sleep hungry not knowing if I will have enough money to buy food for the next week. The reason why I don’t have the money for school, food, and gas is because I recently lost my job, I’m currently in the process of getting a new job in the next few days hopefully. I also have a car payment due next week, I barely have money for gas to last the rest of this week. I don’t really have family to help me out, I’ve asked a couple of my family members and they all either cant right now because they have their own financial problems or they just don’t want to help me at all.
The only thing that I care about right now is my education. School has always been important to me because it’s my future. I want to be successful, I want to be live comfortably and wake up every day and not have to worry if I’m going to have enough money to pay all of my bills, or have food on the table. I’malways humble and thankful for everything that I have, I continuously push myself to work harder, try my best in everything I do, go out of my way to help others in need, because I know how hard life is, and to be successful in this world takes a tremendous amount of hard work. To the person or everyone that may be reading this I would like to say thank you for taking the time out of your day/night in considering to help me out. I’m glad that there is a place where I can reach out to people who want to help others because someday I too want to be like you and help as much as I can for people who are in need. Again I would like to say thank you and if you’re able to help me out, I hope that someday I could repay you.
Hello everyone! My name is Ariana and I am currently a junior at Arizona State University. I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Logistics full time. I take a minimum of 15 credit hours a semester in order to keep the scholarship I have. Now at the mention of a scholarship many of you must be wondering why I am asking for money on this website. The New American University Scholar Dean’s Award does not fully cover my tuition for the year. I was born and raised in Alaska which makes me an out of state resident. Therefore, my tuition is $28,336 not including room and board, books or supplies. This summer I worked three jobs in order to pay for this semester which was $6645 not including books or school supplies. I was fortunate enough to meet that goal while paying for rent.
Since Freshmen year I have been working on campus a minimum of 28 hours a week. I usually end up working more than that by picking up other’s shifts. Unfortunately, that money solely goes towards my rent. I do not have reliable transportation to work off campus for a better paying job. So I make it work with my current job. However, I do not make enough to save for the upcoming semester. I have already taken out student loans and am currently drowning in the debt.
My parents are unable to help me because they are not in good financial circumstances as well. My mother is getting a divorce from a narcissist who basically manipulated her into selling her house and using the money to buy a restaurant on an island. Now she has no money but is paying for legal fees for a divorce trial which the man refuses to show up for. This means additional money has to be used to pay her lawyer to continue going to court dates that amount to nothing. My dad died of Colon cancer a year ago. My stepmom is a massage therapist and does not have much income herself. Yet, she now has to raise my younger sister by herself while trying to pay off the debt my dad left behind.
As you can see I really have no other options. So I am writing this in hopes some generous person will donate money to help me out. I need about $10,000 in order to get me through my spring semester and senior year of college. For those of you who do not know, students have to pay graduation fees in order to receive their diploma. So on top of normal tuition fees, I will have to pay for other things having to do with graduation my senior year. Once I get my degree and a career job, I will save enough money to pay it forward. I want to help others once I am financially stable. However, today I am in a position where I really need help. I appreciate all donations. Every bit will help, thank you!
P.S. The image attached is a receipt for this semester’s tuition.
Hello everyone. My name is Sarah. I will like to start this by saying that I need help with two different things. One is for me and another for my family.
What I would be help for would be tuition for school that I struggle paying for. I do currently have a job. I make about $800 a month which is not much. Most of my money goes towards helping my family with some bills and other things my siblings would need for there schooling. Don’t get me wrong I am not complaining I am happy to help my family when I can. It’s just since I spend most of the money towards my family I can’t pay my tuition. I don’t want to take out loans because it would be worse for me in the future. So if anyone is kind enough to donate even a few dollars could help me.
The other part is for my family. My mother is struggling finding a stable job. She was a stay at home mom for about 10+ years and just recently got back into the work force. My mother and step father have been having a bad marriage for years and my mother wants to leave but she cannot because her job is not stable enough. So she stays with someone who mentally abuses her (also physically once) because she doesn’t make enough to take care of her & the kids alone. So what I am just asking is a little extra help. Her and I paying the bills get us by a little. Since my step dad barely ever pays the bill it is always left for my mom & I to worry about. So help a struggling mother. My mother. I want her to be happy and not always be stressed.
Please help. Anything you donate will be helpful. I & my mother will be very grateful.

today i was just thinking of how i was going to pay for my university fees in future because at this current frame of time i don’t have any source of income and actually my parents just had to pull my sibling out of my school because they couldn’t pay for the both of us and that was even with the sibling discount.
my future university courses are about £20,000 for a year (for the more expensive course but i don’t know which one i will be selected for so i have to be prepared) and the courses are around 4 years long. so meaning that going to study for the course for the 4 years would cost around £80,000 and that isn’t including the accommodation and food.
the reason i am asking is because i don’t want to be getting into debt when going into university because i fear i won’t be able to get out of the student debt and i really don’t want that happening.
the other thing is that my computer (laptop) is getting old and is getting slow and is actually quite hard to carry around because it is bulky and heavy and i need to use it for my school work and so i need to buy a new one but my parents won’t be able to buy me one because it would be too expensive for one but i am not going for apple because apple is expensive and if some say that you have other opinions that is fine but apple to me is an expensive company where if something were to go wrong with it it could take weeks to fix even if it is just a battery issue because i would have to wait till i am able to visit a certified apple repair and spend lots of money for them to get it fixed and i find windows much easier to maneuver around.
I know that £80,000 seems like a lot of money but that because it really is and that is what is needed for a good education for me to get a job that pays well and that i am interested in an well matched for (studies and interests as well as grades). But that can be much more accomplish able if lots of people pay a little towards it and i might be able to invest it and get more out of it.
thank you for spending your time to read this and i hope you donate through my paypal below.
And i do pardon for the link to sound childish but it was available and my alias is idemanddonuts and i wanted the link to be something easy to remember rather than trying to remember what number i had after my name.
To put things simply my parents never planned for my future. They were too busy snorting whatever drug they could get there hands on, drinking themselves to death, or hitting me to care. I could go into the gruesome details, but I won’t. Though, if you need to know the details I would be glad to share them with you. I want to go to college again. I started for two years, but life got in the way and now I’m in debt and wanting to start again. I have a pretty fulfilling job, but I don’t make enough to cover my bills and pay for school. I was dealt a bad hand, but I worked out of it and now all I want to do is pay my debt, pay my school , and work towards my business degree. If you want more information I will gladly tell you my life story via email. I know it’s a lot of money and I’m just a girl, with big dreams, that you’ve never met.
Best of wishes and lots of hope,

Hello, my name is Dominic
I have had a rough life. My parents spent all their days working from dusk till dawn. They have given everything they had so that i could live better than what they had as children. I am currently just doing small jobs, but at this point we are living paycheck to paycheck. Because I am only able to do small handyman works here and there Life has become very difficult and hectic. There are weeks that i will work day to night to be able to pay for our meals. Sometimes i even have to go to the food back to be able to have food for my family.
I want to go to college and get my bachelors degree in engineering. Getting this degree would mean the world to me and my family. i would be a first to graduate from college. This degree would make it easier to get a higher paying job. it is very hard working random hours in all kinds of conditions with people who can tend to be very unpleasant. I am already planning to go to one of the local colleges, but not entirely sure which on yet. I know that i am going to major in engineering because it’s a big field here and it’s easy to get a decent paying job.
I have been saving up for two years now so that i can pay for my classes, but things have gotten harder. I am dreading taking out a loan because they making life harder. I am looking to get 2000$ to cover my school supplies and books. If i get this degree i will be able to get a decent job, and hopefully can give back to my parents for all they have sacrificed for me. Thanks for your time and god bless.
My heart was racing. I walked across the stage, lights glaring, received my diploma and a handshake, and like that, it was over. I’d pushed my slept through college, emerging as a first generation graduate, despite having a child, working 2 jobs, the passing of my mother, all as a single mom. I radiated pride and gratitude for weeks, stunned with this accomplishment. With my bachelors of science in biology from Boise State, I felt the world was at my finger tips. I grew up with foreign parents who didn’t always have all the answers, but who supported my dreams, and science was it. What I was going to do next seemed obvious at the time. I felt, as you’re told over and over, I can do anything now! Real life hit me a little hard when I learned most upper level jobs require AT LEAST a graduate degree. I was content working in a laboratory as an analytical chemist for a few years before I became restless. I KNEW I could do and be much more. I had always been obsessed with medicine, but never thought I’d make it, until I discovered what a physician assistant was. It was exactly what I wanted. Diagnosing, solving problems, being able to switch specialties, working with and leading my team, and so much more! I immediately began the journey to PA school, and took a giant pay cut to work in the OR at out local hospital. I soaked up as MUCH as possible! The world of surgery sucked me in and has kept my interest ever since. I currently work in a specialty clinic, which has turned into the most rewarding work I’ve ever done. As for PA school, it requires very competitive statistics, and so to add some prerequisites and increase my GPA while accumulating patient care hours, I attended the local college where I live in Montana. My dad was able to co-sign some student loans with me to attend, and my grades were top-of-the-class. I loved learning all these relevant things. Unfortunately, my dad was unable to continue co-signing, and undergraduate federal loans are not available to students who already have a degree. Currently, I’m a single mother, recently diagnosed and fighting through multiple sclerosis, working full time, and on the brink of acceptance to a PA program, but I just need ONE MORE CLASS-psychology 101. But my budget is stretched beyond what I can afford, and am struggling with tuition. I am here, desperately asking for help to get over this hurdle, and onto my way to grad school, after which I can be a successful, contributing citizen of this community I have become an important part of!!
I hate to be on one of these sites and this is really my last resort. I’ve always been one to give things away.. and thats exactly why I’m here now. I went through college to further my education. I have major depression so I wasn’t always 100% into school. Eventually, My school dorms shut down and I had no where to live. In order to stay with my boyfriends family, I took out a credit card to help with bills. I found a job at walmart for awhile. While money was tight and my dorms closed. I decided to resign from school and just save up money and maybe return to college later when I could figure out my depression. So at this point, I didn’t have a car because my parents were never rich and hardly had their own things. I ended up working at multiple jobs and bus lines are not cheap. I was unable to keep a steady pay and now I’m stuck in this financial whirlpool. People often take money from me and use me to get things knowing I’m so nice about it. I’ve kind of dug myself so far in debt that I’m struggling to get back out of this hole. My grandma gave me $2,000 just for a gift because she knew I was struggling. The $2,000 took some financial pain off for awhile but now I’m back at square one. Now, my grandma is giving me a car (I can’t get it yet). I love her to death and would do anything for her. Considering she is giving me her car, I insisted giving her $1,000 back even considering I knew I didn’t have it. I’m a good $40,000 in debt from the bills and credit cards and school loans. I also have braces and they recently took me off my mothers insurance and its going to cost me $200 every visit. I go to the dentist about every 6 weeks and I’m just getting smothered by this debt.
If anyone could please help, it would mean the world to me.
I really thank everyone who took the time to read this! Thank you!
Hello, this is supposed to be my last year at university, and I have been living in a dormitory since I have enrolled into it, with help of the government. Now, since I am almost finishing I need to plan my life after I finish it because I will need a new place and I have to pay the rest of my education bills. I know this might not be the proper way, but I am already working part-time, and I do not make enough money. Living alone is not easy and I have been struggling for a while now, so that is why I am making this step, hoping some strangers online will find some heart to help me out. I do not really care how much you can donate, any donation would be helpful. I know people work for themselves and they work hard, I just hope someone could help me get out of this situation so I can build my own life and start a life without always being in debt to someone. It would mean the world to me as I always helped others, not that I am asking for the help back, but it would be nice to know that someone read my story and helped me out. We do not all have the same origins and sometimes it can be harder for one person than it is for someone else. Those who have money do not owe anything to us who don’t have enough money. It is just that if we could all be equal, this world would be a way better place. No one would have to prove anything to anyone by buying the best car or the best phone because they all would be able to afford the same. But that is not how the world works, and I have gotten used to it. And that is why I am making this step that I never thought I would come to, but it is how it is, and we have to try our best to make the best out of our lives. That is exactly what I’m trying to do, and I hope, I really do, once I get out of this situation once for all, I would be able to help someone just like this. We all have to start from one point right?

I’m a student at the University of Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and I am 21 years old. I am studying to be a social worker so I can help children and teens to get away from bad environments one day. To be able to do this, I had to move from a small town to big city Amsterdam 2,5 yrs ago, but financially it has been a struggle to pay tuition fee.
I’ve been working for 20 – 35 hours a week for the past two years while going to school +- 25 hours a week. This is probably the hardest period I’ve been through. I was working this much just so I could save up a bit of money and to pay my tuition. But my grades were dropping down, so I decided to loan money and to work less. I try to put money aside for next year’s tuition and to pay off my loan, but since I don’t have a lot of money coming in, it’s going pretty slow. And the money that is getting in, is my loan. My loan is around 20.000 euros now, which will probably end in between 25.000 and 35.000 euros (2 yrs in Uni left).
Even though I am getting good grades now, I feel scared and anxious about my future. I’ve cut on expenses and I am trying to be more aware of my behaviour when it comes to spending. I feel more relaxed since I have time to focus on my future and my health but I am also stressed because my loan is bothering me. In the Netherlands a lot has changed; normally we would be funded by the Government to pay (partly) for tuition, but they have cut all the funds and created this loan system. You get registered in a special system, which will affect you with a lot of purchases (such as renting/buying, having subscriptions etc).
I don’t want to be drowning in my loan or in my thoughts about getting it together anymore. I have my entire life ahead of me and all I can see is my loan haunting me with every decision I make, another image I often see is me struggling through Uni to get groceries and what not. I wish I had parents or grandparents who’d help me out just like my peers. But I am all by myself, sometimes my mom funds me, but she’s a single mom who’s also trying to make a living, so I always feel uncomfortable when she helps me out.
I might not have the worst situation and I know that there are a lot of people around the world who struggle with worse problems. I am grateful I am in the position to go to school and to develop my skills. I just hope that it will be easier one day, and that I won’t have to stress over my big tuition loan.
I’ve added a picture of my loan as evidence (it’s in Dutch), if in case there’s someone who would like to help me out. I would like to thank everyone reading this; because even telling my story is clearing up my head.
Hello. I am a young girl 20 to be precise. I turn 21 in November.. I feel silly coming on to this website asking someone other than a parent for money! I mean who wouldn’t, I guess I’m hear for some advice which is what I’d call money. So advice is money, and money is like a healing mechanism for most. I’ve recently came to the realization that god gave me the bad end of life. I was raised by a single mom, dad had 5 other children all roughly the same age when I was born. As I grew up she was always there, we were super close to each other at the age of 16 something terrifying happens to me. It left me scared and damn near homeless! I was a straight A student up until I found out my mother was addicted to cocaine and alcohol. It brought me so low but I continued to stay strong for me and my sister. At 16 my mother would always have different men in and out of our lives. She was strung and I was young. I was rapped by a man while I was sleeping. I was watched for months, I was sketched like if I were a cartoon character. She was high on drugs in the other room when it happened, and evidently I’m either insane or high off life according to her. I couldn’t even pin point exactly what happened that night, but I woke up not in the right state. And she moved away that same week with The Who made me unsafe. He was a killer after all. I stayed from house to house between my sister who hates me and a grandmother who’s wicked in her own ways. My sister was told by my mom at age 18 my father raped her. So now she goes around hating the world. Including me m, although go decided my life had to be even to hers. I was afraid to step outside and she made it worse, she’d tourney me and talk crap about me, bringing me lower than I already was. I live with mom now again staying away from drugs considering they all do them in my family. I was in college but it didn’t go to good. At all. Now I’m focusing on me, I need to better my life, though I could use an entire fortune. A small kin of 3509$ could get me my first vehicle to get to and from classes everyday! The little amount could turn my life around! A kinder gesture of a larger amount would be appreciated as well. Thanks to those who took the time to read my post. Xo
Hello everyone out there! I’m a struggling college student named Lindzeh trying to make ends meet. Like everyone else I hate asking for money, but when your arms are tied with nowhere left to turn, the internet always has an idea or two. That’s how I ended up here sitting at my computer pondering how I was going to come up with $131.50 to pay for this access code for my class to do my homework and test assignments. I had just spent the last of my money on my overly priced car payment and am left dry until next paycheck which will of course, not be able to cover the cost for my class access code after I put aside what I need for bills. The college I go to hasn’t distributed my loan and won’t be until an ENTIRE week later. I finally figured out what I’m going to do to contribute to this society and failing grades cannot be on the agenda. I need help! Money is no laughing matter. It’s the subject of hair pulling, teeth grinding stress. Every week is the same, living from paycheck to paycheck trying to continuously make ends meet. I know what you’re all thinking. Why doesn’t she just put money away into savings every week like the rest of us? Well, smarty pants, I do! And life always throws me a curve ball where I have to pay out of my savings for a new tire, or to get my car fixed, or emergency gas to get to work. Im sure a few of you out there know where I’m coming from with that. I understand people have their own lives to live and money to pay to things, but even $1 helps in the biggest of ways! And if that doesn’t convince you, you can at least go to sleep knowing that good karma is on your side. Nobody can ever get enough of that! So you guys know that I’m not just some punk kid trying to swindle myself an extra $131.50, I included the photo of my webpage showing you all my proof! Not only that, but I’m currently looking for a second job so I don’t run into this type of situation again where I jeopardize my future as a CPA. I’m a hard working, determined young lady with the drive to succeed! This money will no go unnoticed or be treated like a hand out. In reality, my reality, this isn’t $132.50 for an access code. My reality is that this access code is going to determine if I succeed or fail. Please help contribute to my success, and later down the road I will do the same. Thank you, anyone, for reading this and helping a college student out.
Okay, I understand that being $3,000 in debt is minuscule to other people.
I worked really hard to finish highschool early, and on top of that I was working between 40 and 80 hour weeks to help myself save up- but life happens.
I was working full time for a year (legal working age in my state is 16 so from the start I’ve been trying my hardest). But in July, I had the option of voluntary quitting my job or eventually getting fired because my boss who is a grown woman was more willing to call me a liar to all of her superiors, than admit the truth and get herself in trouble. If she had been truthful, she would be the one out of work and not me.
Life has this way of making timing either be perfect or absolutely horrible. I had just put down my account balance to pay for drivers ed, when this happened. And the next week I had to sign up for my college classes or else I would not be able to attend college a year early- which I had tirelessly been working towards the last two years. Waiting a year to start college would mean giving up the only real goal I currently have in life- which is to have my associates degree before I turn 19. I know it’s ridiculous, but this is something that really matters to me- so I begged my parents- who are 100,000’s of dollars in debt already, to put two of my classes on their debit card. This has caused my mother to put her own career goals on hold to potentially have to return to a job she does not want to have- and sacrifice things we need because of me.
I feel incredibly burdensome at this point- and I feel helpless as I have applied for over 50 jobs in the past month and haven’t heard anything back from anyone.
I am so desperate at this point I have been trying to sell anything and everything I own that has value.
Even doing so- the last resort has gained me maybe five dollars every two weeks.
And if tuition wasn’t enough- I know have a medical bill I cannot afford to pay but also cannot afford to ignore.
Please, even a dollar would help that this point- I do not know where else to turn. No one takes teenagers seriously, but if my debt continues to pile up I am setting myself up for a life of struggling. My only desire at this point is to be debt free by the time I turn eighteen.
To the individual reading this:
First of all, thank you for taking the time to be here & to listen to my problems that I have deemed myself incapable of resolving on my own. If you decided to donate by the end of this, I will never be able to properly thank you & know that you have allowed a young lady a second chance at financial stability in this world. I am forever in your debt.
I am a 21 year old woman currently pursuing an education in Software Engineering Technology.
I am in credit card debt of $5,000, am working 25 hours a week as a apprentice to a general contractor.
This job pays $15 an hour which is just enough to cover my bi-weekly car payment of $145 & my monthly insurance of $170. I live in the city of Toronto & my rent is $700, in addition to this I have to pay for internet, gas, groceries and repay a loan from OSAP from my first year of college from when I was 19. This debt totals at $1,800
In addition to these bills, I had 2 jobs in the year of 2017 which crippled me when tax season came around causing me to owe the government $1000 in taxes which has now gained significant interest since April. I am unable to ask to repay this debt monthly because my monthly expenses are already through the roof.
I have gone through my savings completely & barely manage to get by due to my $300 overdraft protection on my account.
This can only last so long, I am in desperate need of help. I can’t go to any bank & ask for more money, my parents make too much money for me to get OSAP again this year. I’m not sure where else to turn.. I really hope that this works out.
Again thank you so much for considering me as someone you are considering donating to.

Hi to anyone interested. I feel crazy posting my story online like this but here we go. I am a 20 year old, first year student at a small northern Ontario post secondary institution. Let’s start with my family breakdown. My father was a raging alcoholic and used to beat me, my 4 siblings and my mom badly. My mom relied on him for income so she never left him. I am the oldest of all 4 siblings. My mom never did anything except try to please my father and put food on the table for us kids, she was just as scared as we were but she never left. I practically raised my siblings from birth this is why I am starting first year at almost 21 years old. 5 years ago we were taken away from my our parents to live with our grandparents in a small northern community of Ontario. My grandparents were not equipped to handle 5 children especially at their old age of 87 and 88. They can’t afford to feed all of us and I had to work 2 jobs to help with food and living. This situation that was my life, had spiralled completely out of control and caused me to become severely depressed and have extreme anxiety in public, especially around men. I can’t even think of going into a bar. I forced myself to go to a loved ones of alcoholics meeting to try to understand and it was really hard. It took me a long time to wrap my head around the process because I have such horrible memories of my father and talking about it just made me flash back to how awful my life had been. It took me 3 years to understand. I ended up getting a tattoo of the alcoholics anonymous slogan “one day at a time” because I finally had let go of the past. I still struggle a lot, but it wasn’t as bad as it used to be. My siblings struggle everyday and I am the backbone holding everything together. The stress and pressure it puts on me is enough to kill me but I keep thinking to myself “one day at a time”. It took me this long to even think about school and leaving my brothers and sisters. I still feel so guilty about it but I know I have to break the cycle and do something good with my life. So that brings me to now.
Growing up, I loved school because it was an escape from the brutal home life I endured. I excelled at math and science. My favourite subject was biology, which led me to pick my major biomedical biology. As stated before I had to work 2 jobs to help feed my siblings and I. I couldn’t save. I had to take out a 20,000 dollar loan to pay for my school, as of December 14th 2018 I will have paid my final payment for school and will officially be in debt 20,ooo dollars. Not to mention the credit card bills that are going to add up over the time. I am very desperate and anything to help me would be extremely appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
