I don’t if you guys just want a short explanation or not, so I’ll just tell my story and my situation. I’m only 19 but life has already proved to me how hard it is to live in this world. My mom died when I was a child and I’ve never lived with my dad, so he’s not actively in my life which means I was passed around between family members and because of the way I grew up, I ended up having anxiety and depression, which lead to self harm and suicidal tendencies. I was slowly becoming a little better but when I signed up for college, I did everything myself and when I needed help, I was scolded for asking so I stopped and did everything without much knowledge. I was advised to file for homelessness for financial aid because I fit the criteria but it wasn’t approved and I found myself with a bill of over $8,000 for school. I was trying to find a job, but my family advised against it because I’m not mentally stable enough yet. Because of the stress from my school pressuring me into an immediate pay and pursuing a law suit, I’m quickly falling back into my depression and suicidal tendencies. I usually wouldn’t do anything like this but I’m so desperate and feel like I have no other option which is why I’m filing in a request. I apologize if this was too long, but thank you for reading.
My name is Nova, I am 19 years old and am in need of serious financial help! I graduated High School in June of 2016, about a week after I graduated I started my own small business, making homemade bath and body products (soap, candles, perfumes, colognes, etc.) My products are not like most common store brands, they are made with high quality, vegan, and free of harsh chemical ingredients (for proof of my business you can visit my Etsy site @bluelotusartisansoap.etsy.com. )
Now, let’s rewind a little bit and get more in depth of my story timeline. Before I graduated High school I’ve always had that entrepreneur mindset. I’ve always wanted to be my own boss, have my own business, and just be hands on doing things I enjoy. I started looking around at different ideas and ways to start a product that would be a popular interest and making high quality bath & body products just somehow caught my eye the most. So I had a little bit of financial help from my grandmother to get started and with dedication, hard work, artistic skills, and getting my products out by word of mouth through my family, within a matter of two months I sold out! Nothing felt more great and rewarding than to hear the raving feedback of my products from customers. So, after my test trial being a success, I decided that I wanted to take a step further and expand my product beyond family, neighbors, and friends. Then I come a crossed Etsy and decided to set my online shop up. My shop did great and I wanted to expand my product varieties. So, I invested more money into ingredients, packaging, and equipment. However, being young and fresh out of school, I honestly didn’t know much about having my own business. I thought if people are buying my products it was okay to keep investing in more, but I didn’t think about an important aspect to having a functional business and that is advertising my products. So from the time I started my online shop to now I began to get less and less sales and now i’m having long gaps of time go by with little to no sales. I’m losing profit and sinking in financial loss! While trying to find a way to bring my shop back I come a crossed a video from a very amazing gentleman, Keala Kanae.
Who is Keala Kanae? He makes a huge living on affiliate marketing. A few years ago he and his friend Kam, decided that they wanted to share there success with others and started a online course called AWOL Academy (AWOL stands for “A Way of Life.”) Keala’s life story drew me into wanting to more about affiliate marketing and AWOL Academy. So I joined their free Webinar. I left the Webinar with wide eyes of hope, inspiration, and the determination to learn more. To make sure that AWOL Academy was legitimate I did thorough research and once I had 100% confidence it was real I enrolled in AWOL Academy. Getting more and more inspiration and confidence about bringing my business back and growing it I decided with my AWOL Academy coach that I wanted to be grandfathered into AWOL Academy and get the entire learning course. and this is where my financial struggle for my future begins…
AWOL Acdademy is offering their complete course to those willing and determined to be an online affiliate marketer and change there lives for the better for $9,997 until October 31st at midnight, after that the course will be $6,000 more and I won’t be grandfathered in. I’ve been trying to get financial help through loans, but because it’s not a government funded school I cannot apply for a student loan and because i’m just out of school and started working a real job less than a year ago I have no evidence of a stable income to apply for a regular loan. So i’m reaching out and begging for your support to help me raise $10,500 in four days to help me accomplish my future and dreams.
If I can receive the financial help through you and build my “empire” my family and I won’t be the only ones benefiting from this success. I want to be able donate and raise money for charity organizations, help my community, and inspire other young (and even older) individuals who want to create there own business and to show others that even if you’re going through financial issues or if your small business that is having trouble growing, that there is hope.
Please help me accomplish my dreams,
My name is Vonny and I’m from Indonesia. I am a mother of 3 daughters, me and my husband’s job is selling homemade foods and frozen foods in order to provide my daughters needs. Last year, my husband and I decided to sent our first daughter to Toronto, Canada to pursue her study and her career in thought that we can provide everything she needs including the tuition fee. At first, we could pay her first semester tuition fee because we still have enough incoming from the business we ran since 9 years ago.
But, as the time goes our income decreased and our business is not as successful as a few years ago and we can’t provide or pay our first daughter’s tuition fee per year which is 15,000 CAD. We have to borrow money from our friends and took a large amount of loan at the bank. We don’t how to payback our debts because the amount of our income per month is not enough to pay the tuition fee, my first daughter tried to help us by taking a part-time job to cover some of the tuition fee with her salary but it’s still not enough.
Moreover, we have to pay our last daughter who is still a secondary student and the due date is almost the same as the payment due of our first daughter. The fee of our last daughter is around 200 CAD per month, we tried our best to raise more money to aid our daughters’ school fees but our business is not going well and we are tied in debt. We even postponed our second daughter who just graduated from high school from enrolling at college due to short of money condition. Also, we have to pay our employee who has been working for us for years for about 100 CAD per month. In total, we need 15,200 CAD to pay our two daughters’s school fee and the due date is already over, October 20th and we have to pay the extra 100 CAD.
Every month on date 20th, we have to pay the school fees as I explained on the paragraph. And I hope from this donation, we can provide our daughters’ future.
We are really desperate for help right now, every parents want the best for their children and so are we. A small help from you is a huge help for us, thank you for every donation you give.
Money needed: 15,200 CAD
Here is my daughter’s paypal account: paypal.me/TiffaniNS

I am drowning in debt with no life guard in site.
I am currently;
-£500 in my bank overdraft.
£1700 in finance (I needed a laptop for university that could handle 3d design software).
I owe my parents a little over £2000.
furthermore, my car insurance needs renewed at the end of December which is going to cost me another grand or so, give or take a couple hundred pound.
I have to pay £644 A MONTH to live in a shitty university accomodation the size of a prison cell.
I have moved 300 miles away from my girlfriend of 4 years and I try to make an effort to visit her every 2nd weekend however I haven’t seen her in over a month and its really saddening, I genuinely mis her wee face. also she can’t drive and its costing me a fortune in petrol.
AND the worst part is I’m ONLY 18!!!!
how the hell am I meant to get through the next 4 years of my life? when, at current, I am sitting with the maximum loan I can get from the student funding unit and its still not enough to pay my rent every month. I work Saturday and Sunday EVERY weekend at to scrap up enough money to get some food for my flat and a little petrol in my car however on a hourly rate of £4.25 I am never going to pay off any of my debt or be able to visit my girlfriend again.
Please, all my life I have made an effort to support myself and since I was young I have been doing a good job however over the past couple years I have been really struggling and no one seems to care. so I am going to formally request your help.

I am not asking for much (however if you feel like paying off some of the above list be my guest ;) ) in all seriousness though £20 here and there, would go along way and would seriously make my life a lot more manageable.

Once again thank you very much.
I have spent the past 23 years of my life with the belief that in order to be happy, you have to be educated and then use that education to become successful.
I tried, I struggled, and I failed. I thought I needed to become an engineer or a doctor to be considered successful at life.
I now realise it OK to do what I actually want to do.
Please help me get my Class 1 long haulage licenses. I want to show everyone that I can be success doinf something I really enjoy.

Thank you for your consideration.
Hello my name is Aileen Ike. I’m a high school student in need of $4,395 so I can participate in a youth leaders conference that will be held in China on July 8- July 17, 2018. There is an organization called Envision. Envision delivers career exploration and leadership experiences for high-aspiring students. Envision has various different conferences for students to attend. I was only able to attend to one back in 2015, which was the National Youth Leadership Forum: National Security. It was really great, I enjoyed everything! Within the conference, I was sent to Washington D.C, visited our Nation’s Memorials, had two National Security Simulations exercises, and many other exciting events. Going to Washington D.C was the farthest I have ever been from home, and I want to go farther, like to China. The Envision invited me to two other conferences: Global Young Leaders Conferences and Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit. I wanted to go to both but was unable to because I have no money. I come from a poor family, the only reason I was able to attend the National Security Conference was because of my mother. She gave me the money so I can go, but the money was from her retirement earnings. I understand she loves me and wants the best for me, but her retirement earning does not have a big amount of money in it. Me taking a part of it feels very wrong and I don’t want to do it again. And it is the same for the rest of my family. I don’t want to ask them for money because I know they don’t have any and it still feels wrong. Your donation should be given to me because I feel like I deserve it. I’m highly qualified; I’m a beginner in boxing, I do sports, I try to be a good role model for my younger siblings, I’m in a Law Enforcement program, I have good grades and everything I do helps me in the future. I believe attending conferences like these are like an award. Me going to this conference will make my family jealous but at the same time, I will make them proud. Showing them no matter how poor we may seem, we still can make it far. With your help, I won’t have the need to take any money from my family. With your help, I will be able to participate in the conference. With your help, I can have a life-time experience. With all of this said, I will like to thank you for your time and consideration.
Unfortunately, my depression has worsened; my doctors has strongly recommended that my monthly visits change to weekly appointment. I lost interest in my daily activities, friends and family. The medicine has also impacted my sleeping patterns. The frustration was so great that I had to receive additional medicine to sleep and to get started on my day. Just recently, after getting out of the train, my foot was caught in a poorly developed area, twisting my foot. As a result I had to go to the emergency room. I have been unable to walk proper for weeks. I began to have difficulties with function well and had some unrealistically questionable life thoughts about my situation.
As I reflect on my journey, I feel like something is wrong. This was the only place that I could call my home. I am forced to seek medical help and rebuild my relationship with other. I am seeking group counseling so I may be able to discuss my challenges with people that I can relate to. The strange thing is that after all these years of living with this illness I feel numb to the dynamics of life. I am hopeful for what there is to come. I am asking for 2,000$ so I may be able to pay my tuition. Anything is appreciated, paypal.me/seanetnn
My life is a underdog story. Young girl growing up in a poor neighborhood uses education to make it out through music.
My name is Camille and I am a senior majoring in Audio Arts & Acoustics ( Music Production). I am expectional at what i do whether its beat making, engineering, producing, or performing. I have big dreams, when I graduate I plan on moving to California starting from an music intership and moving my way up to becoming CEO.
I was on track to doing just that, but unforseen obstacles stand in my way. In the beginning of 2017 I was suppose to graduate but I couldn’t afford to register for classes. My parents had four other kids to worry about so I couldn’t ask them for help, they already took out loans the previous year for school, adding on more debt to their own accounts.
I only have one class take before I can graduate, I repeat only ONE CLASS. But I can’t register for classes until I pay off my out standing balance of $3,208. When the out standing balance was first presented to me I didn’t have job, there was absolutely no light at the end of the tunnel for me However after months of job hunting, I recently became employee making $1400 a month which is way more than I have ever made in my life. But after my daily and monthly expenses are paid for, I have little to nothing left to pay off my school debt.
Also, recently found out when trying to apply for a loan to pay it off, that I had another out standing balance of $589 with a previous school I attended. However, I was unaware because my parents would always take care of my finances… I found out when checked my credit score after being denied for the loan. So, you see I am in need and if I don’t recieve help I won’t graduate until next Fall. This sucks because I have an intership lined in Calfornia for Spring 2018.
I’m tired of living in blackand white, please out the kindness of your heart help me livein color. My goal is $4,000. Thank you a million takes in advance!
I’m currently a student in Perth, WA am I’m still unable to settle my semester fees, I’ve literally fallen on my knees begging them to extend the date as I have to work to pay my fees and since I study in the morning I have to do part time work at night as afternoons are my homework periods, I’m currently like really struggling not enough time to make my ends meet I thought I could handle working and studying at the same time but that just never happened. My due date is on the 21st of October which I realised is only in a few days and I’m way short on money, because of this I’m not even sure if I can make it by then like in living I’ve tried not to think of negative thoughts and kept on going but knowing that time is running our for me I need help please if you manage to read this email please help me I’ve literally run out of options I’m always looking for new things to do to raise money but now I don’t think I have any other option than asking you for help please help me.

Hi, my name is Manasa and I am 21 years old. I’m currently pursuing Masters in Finance at Dublin City University. You may be wondering why I’m asking for money. Well, I’m trying to pay for 4120€ of my 23000€ college fees, but I don’t have the financial support I need. Since childhood, I have pursued all my education through the government scholarships I received. After under graduation, I have received an offer letter from one of the best universities in Ireland. My dad is a farmer from India and with his little earnings and the scholarship I received from the government, I managed to pay 50% of my fees. My dad & mom had done so much for me I don’t want to feel like a burden to put my college bills on top of more plus they have to raise the rest of my siblings. I’m technically on my own and bills are accumulating and my part-time job helps me merely with paying my living expenses.
I am a hardworking student and excelled in academics since my childhood. I am confident that right after my post graduation I will end up finding a good job, helping my family and as well as others with education.
With the deadline to pay my fees approaching this October 30th, whatever help I receive I will be grateful. The amount I am asking for is 4120€. I am pleading, this would be such an honor to me and would impact my life forever, I know I deserve an opportunity because of my hard work and I would really appreciate a feedback.
My PayPal link is at the end of the request I appreciate anything as it’s my opportunity to help pay back the ones who’ve helped me throughout my life to this point.
I am a 21 year old junior in college trying to make it passed the finish line. Due to an F I received in one class one semester my financial aid was taken away for the Fall 2017 term. Now I owe $3,603 on my fee bill that needs to be paid in full, otherwise I can’t enroll in classes for Spring 2018. I have run into this problem one time before and had to take a semester off. I would really like to avoid having to do that again because it is just making the four year process even longer. I will be the only person in my family to graduate college and I just want to achieve what I have already started. My mom and I are always struggling, but especially lately we barely make it to get all of the bills paid, gas in the car, etc. I haven’t even bought any of my text books for this semester because I can’t afford it, but somehow I’m getting by so far. We have a lot of burdens right now financially but if I can get this balance paid off it’d be a big weight off my shoulders. I do have a part-time job but for the past 2 months every one of my paychecks have been going towards vet appointments for my cat and it’s killing me. I have already tried looking into private student loans but I do not have credit and no one close to me has good enough credit to cosign a loan application for me. Any donation would be a huge help – please. Thank you so much.
I am 20 years old. I am a studentcompleting an associates degree in Nursing. My educational aspirations consist of acquiring a bachelors degree in Nursing that would assist me in pursuing a medical career as a nurse. My passion has always been assisting others and trying to improve their quality of life. I think pursing such a career will provide me the opportunity to help improve health. After becoming a Registered Nurse, I would like to specialize and become a Nurse Practitioner. I am a student that not only works hard academically, but I try to improve the quality of life by doing volunteer work. One of my biggest goal I want to accomplish is to establish a nonprofit organization where I can create internships for Nursing students around the US, and allow them to travel to isolated communities around the world to provide free services. I know that my goals will remain dreams if I do not complete my Nursing degree. Therefore, I am committed to working hard in school and looking for opportunities that could help make my goals a reality. I grew up in a single parent household and my mother was working for a low income. Growing up in a third world country, life was hard for me. I did not have the privileges as my peers. Many days, we did not have light to study and had to light a candle in order to study. I am the first generation of college student in my family. I was very blessed to gain an opportunity to study my associates in Nursing in the states. I am now asking if your company could assist me financially with my tuition for my bachelors in nursing. I am pleading, this would be such an honor to me and would impact my life forever, I know I deserve an opportunity because of my hard work and I would really appreciate a feedback.
I really do not have some kind of dramatic story, so, if you visit this site for really useful charity, try spending your money for someone whose life depends on it.
Talking about me, I am just first year medical student (you can feel free to ask me to provide my status proof) in a new town and, unfortunately, I am not able to work and study simultaneously right now, because of my study material amount and complexity. So I kindly ask you for some extra cash to spend it on living expenses (I mean tuition fees, food, medicine,doctor’s fees, public transport, household chemicals etc.). It is necessary only during the first year, because (I hope it is not just a rumor) medical studies become less and less difficult over time so I will definitely find a job.
And sorry for my english, I am really not into foreign languages :-( On the photo you can see my pembroke, Gabbi, she stayed in my hometown with my parents, I miss her very much ;C
My name is Mia Blanchard formally known as Mia Thomas. I am writing you because I would like to request your financial assistance in helping me not only finish my education, but to help society gain another hard working, dedicated woman to the work force. Currently I owe a balance of $7,161.69 to the University of Missouri-Columbia. This amount is preventing me from continuing on with my education. My plan is to finish my degree and to go on to get my Master’s in Counseling. My plan is to get back in good standing with the University financially and grade wise. I’ve had a few obstacles in my way prohibiting from doing my best. Before my college career even kicked off I had the challenges of graduating from a high school that did not properly prepare me for college, I was a single parent/nontraditional student and I had a mentally ill parent.
The story of my education career has been a rollercoaster honestly. Ups and downs, twists and turns. I can say it was one of the most difficult times in my life with all of the circumstances going on. After graduating high school it would have been better for me to wait or have a solid plan on how I was going to tackle life, parenting, and school. If I knew what I know now my approach would have been completely different. Nothing less than gratitude I have for every experience gained, and every perspective expanded. I did learn that in order to be successful in college with my circumstances there had to be a better support system in place. Today, 8 years later, I am more than ready to resume my education.
I began my college education in June of 2008 at the University of Missouri Columbia. The start of my college career completely changed my life. From the moment school started I really understood how what it takes in order to succeed. I attended St. Louis Public Schools. Prior to starting Mizzou there was a summer trial program to be fully admitted into the college. I took this because of my low ACT score. I remember scoring a 16 on the ACT which wasn’t very high. Instead of giving up on my dream to attend college I enrolled in a summer program that gave students a chance by taking two courses to see if they could adapt and handle the course load. One must complete an English 1000 course and a Pre-Algebra course with a C average or better. Summer 2008 I had taken 6 credit hours which is considered full time status. At the end of the Summer Program I did awesome with the English class but the math I had to retake fall of 2008. I did pass the math course fall of 2008. The career path that I decided to pursue was Animal Science. My aspirations were to complete my bachelors within 4 years and go on to school to be a Veterinarian. I participated in the Pre-Vet Club, I volunteered at the Vet School on Campus. I’ve even gotten to know a few of the doctors and coordinators there. Even with all of this I struggled. Trying to become the almost perfect student didn’t seem to fit my life. It only magnified how hard things would be for me if I wanted success.
Being a non-traditional student with barely any support took a tole on my grades. Being a single mom and being in college was one of the biggest challenges of life. I had to somehow figure out how to survive, take care of my child, and go above and beyond to be considered for Veterinarian School all in the same keep my grades up. I have had my trials and tribulations with my schooling. My son Derrick was 1.5years old when we moved to Columbia to begin my educational journey. My method of surviving while in school was to take out loans to pay for my student housing. I lived at Tara Apartments while in school. This is a non-traditional student housing or housing for graduate students. My method to making sure I was able to enroll each semester was just telling the cashiers office to take it out of my upcoming semester’s financial aid. That worked for 3 years. In 2011 Financial Aid put an end to students being able to pay for previous semesters with the next semester’s funds. Because I wasn’t working I had no way of paying off the huge balanced owed. At that point it was the end of my college education. I was so disappointed because I was just a few credit hours shy from obtaining my Bachelor’s Degree.
Aside from financial issue some of the other struggles that I experienced was dealing with my struggles as a non-traditional student, trying to balance grades and helping a mentally ill co-dependent parent. A little background on my childhood is simply that it was a struggle to worry about being a child and to make sure that I was okay emotionally. My mom used drugs throughout my childhood in order to cope with her life. She was both physically and verbally abusive to my stepfather. I remember always having anxiety wondering where she was and if she was coming home. When she did come home normally she’d pick fights. Typically they were really bad. There were sleepless nights and anxiety attacks because of all the chaos. There were times when she wasn’t there to even comb my hair for school so my stepfather would have to do my hair. I also remember him losing a really important jobs when my mom could not be found for several days. He always stayed with us and protected us from whatever situation would arise with my mom. When I was old enough to finally understand that this behavior from my mother is not normal, I vowed that I was moving away to go to college. As a child I grew up in a household that didn’t consist of parents that had a college education so being able to even experience college made me feel like life can finally be promising. I knew I was destined for more than poverty, limited mindsets and pain. The drive of me not wanting to turn out like my mom and just wanting a successful peaceful life were the driving factors in me making the decision to attend the University of Missouri-Columbia. Going to school would provide me with a fresh start, a clean slate. Now during my college career my mother slipped into a very horrible state of being which she dumped all of her life problems on to me. She was hospitalized for her mental illness. During her hospitalization she was diagnosed as Paranoid Schizophrenia. There was a traumatic experience where she attempted to attack me with a knife because of her mental instability. She did go to jail and was on probation I ended up having to talk to a counselor at the University of Missouri-Columbia and take medication for anxiety. Mrs. Gretchen Reinders my counselor, helped me work through a lot of family matters that had manifested in my life. Clearly this wasn’t a time in my life where I could perform at my greatest. I am very proud that I was able to attend school for the 3 years that I did.
Completing my education would be a huge milestone for me and my family. Especially for my children. I’d like to set an example and show them how important a good education is to them knowing more, doing more and being successful. Completing my educational goals will change my family’s financial situation and give me the chance to live my passion. Living my passion is so important for me because I want to wake up every day knowing that I am making a difference in someone’s life and that I actually love what I do. No more working jobs just to make ends meet. To feel fulfilled everyday with purpose will definitely inspire my children to go out and reach the stars. They will look at my life and mimic the same.
Currently both I and my husband are working full time. I am currently a Leasing Consultant and he is a Personal Banker at Commerce Bank. It is hard for us to come up with a few thousand dollars to pay it off in an addition to the responsibilities of having a family. We have 4 children are involved in our family. We have 3 living in the home and I have a step daughter who visits us frequently on weekends. He currently is in school as well finishing up his degree in business. He attends Meremac Community College in St. Louis, Mo. I am hoping to finish my degree at the University of Missouri- Columbia. My goal is to finish my bachelor’s degree and then go on to get my Master’s degree in Counseling. I am really hoping for a second chance at making a difference in the world. I hope that you can help me out with completing my education. I thank you for your time in hearing my story and contributing to a first time generation college student that also is a non-traditional student.

Hi, my name is Sheila. I’m majoring in Criminal Justice law Enforcement at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. Y’all may be wondering why I’m asking for money well I’m trying to pay for college, but I don’t have the financial or family support I need. My dad has told me to just quit and just find a normal job. To me that’s like saying stop reaching for your dreams and settle for less. My Mom has done so much for me I don’t want to feel like a burden to put my college bills on top of more plus she still has to raise the rest of my siblings. Even if she could help me I wouldn’t be able to accept it because it’s like taking from my siblings’ mouth. I’m technically on my own and bills are accumulating so I don’t know where else to look for help. All my life I have been living under a shadow. I have been reminded over and over that I can’t do it, that I can’t reach or complete my goals because I’m not good enough. Well I have been proving them wrong so far. I want to be successful. I want to be someone in life and help people in the future. I don’t have the money to buy my books or just to rent them due to having to worry about how to pay for the classes itself. To top that off I have to pay rent and feed myself. I know it’s the process of becoming an adult but I have no one to guide me through this. Plus, I’m the first of my family to go to college so the stress and pressure is at its maximum. So please anything helps.
My name is Trevor Kopalye from Papua New Guinea. I completed school since 2008 with an year 12 Highschool certificate from which I never got an offer to study in any college or university. I was always discriminated for being dumb and slow thinker but deep down in my heart I know I can proof ever one wrong one day. My father passed away when I was a toddler and my mum tried her best to care for me and my siblings but we never realised how life is like outside our comfort zone’s. Therefore she abandoned me for not living up to her expectations. After years of hardship and struggle’s I applied to a government scholarship program designed to reinforce our country’s skilled workers. I was successful in being awarded and went to study Automotive Technician Cert II at TAFE North Queensland, Townsville, Queensland Australia. During my studies I realised the importance of education and wanted to peruse my dream to become a civil engineer so I applied to James Cook University Australia and was offered a space there to start off this month, but due to financial difficulties I explained to the administration in JCU if they could reschedule me for the July intake and they accepted. There for I humbly request to your wonderful and generous heart if it is possible that you may help me achieve something that almost everyone I know underestimates me in. Help me to stop discrimination in my country and I will become an example to others. I have a desire to change my country and give that one percent which will encourage others also to give their one percent and together we all make it a hundred Percent. Yours Respectfully, Trevor Kopalye
Hello, i’m a student just getting ready to go into my second year of studying, i have had issues all year with receiving money from student finance which set me back and owe the uni money. I am currently unable to enroll for my second year of studies due to owing the amount which is £3210, this has become an obstacle which is really big and I’ve been trying hard to get a job from the moment i was made aware of the amount i owe. I’d appreciate any help towards clearing up this debt, i don’t want to let down my family who are relying on me to make it through and get a degree, but also to throw away my chance at doing something i have such a big passion for. I do own up to the mistake of spending to much money on the year at one point however i learned from that mistakes and tried and managed to pay what money i could when i could. I am asking for help wherever possible i have a deadline to make this payment by October 2nd, whatever help i receive i will be extremely grateful. The amount i am asking for is £3210 i have the statement on PDF which i am unable to attach to this request, and again i would say i am grateful for whatever help i get if i do get help. My paypal link is at the end of the request i appreciate anything as its my opportunity to help pay back the ones who’ve helped me through out my life to this point.
I am 20 years old. I am a student completing an associates degree in Nursing. My educational aspirations consist of acquiring a bachelors degree in Nursing that would assist me in pursuing a medical career as a nurse. My passion has always been assisting others and trying to improve their quality of life. I think pursing such a career will provide me the opportunity to help improve health. After becoming a Registered Nurse, I would like to specialize and become a Nurse Practitioner. I am a student that not only works hard academically, but I try to improve the quality of life by doing volunteer work. One of my biggest goal I want to accomplish is to establish a non profit organization where I can create internships for Nursing students around the US, and allow them to travel to isolated communities around the world to provide free services. I know that my goals will remain dreams if I do not complete my Nursing degree. Therefore, I am committed to working hard in school and looking for opportunities that could help make my goals a reality. I grew up in a single parent household and my mother was working for a low income. Growing up in a third world country, life was hard for me. I did not have the privileges as my peers. Many days, we did not have light to study and had to light a candle in order to study. I am the first generation of college student in my family. I was very blessed to gain an opportunity to study my associates in Nursing in the states. I am now asking if your company could assist me financially with my tuition for my bachelors in nursing. I am pleading, this would be such an honor to me and would impact my life forever, I know I deserve an opportunity because of my hard work and I would really appreciate a feedback.
My name is Leah and I go to a small town university on the East Coast of Canada. This year is my final year majoring in Psychology and I’m so excited to start my career once I graduate. Unfortunately, this year I’ve found myself unable to pay the remainder of my tuition. I worked full time all summer as an executive assistant, and it was such an awesome experience. The problem was that (as you might be able to guess), I was not exactly paid handsomely for my work. What’s more, my car is nine years old and has required what seems to be an insane amount of body work in order for it to pass inspection (where I live, it is the law for our cars to be inspected and pass inspection once a year in order to be driven legally). This set me back around $2000 at the beginning of my work term which left me essentially broke.
As the summer went on, I saved diligently but although I get to live at home for free, it is expected of me that I pay my fair share of the basic living expenses (such as heat, lights, phone bill, insurance, internet, etc) which meant that I was not able to save all the money I made.
Further, my sister was unexpectedly scheduled for back surgery (she suffered from scoliosis) and even though the government paid for the surgery itself, we still had to to take time off work to travel and care for her in order for her to recover as quickly as possible. This was unplanned, as she was on a waiting list and enough people had dropped off the list for her to be scheduled mid-summer. Unfortunately it meant that even though she got her surgery (which she desperately needed), we all lost out on time and money in the interim.
The final blow to my financial troubles this summer was due to the fact that my sister moved away to school as soon as she was given the approval to carry books again. The school she decided to go to is the only one of its nature anywhere near my hometown, and since she wasn’t able to work due to her recovering back, she asked me to help her pay for some of her fees. When I first went over my own financial situation, I apparently grossly overestimated how much I would have by the end of the summer and I ended up giving her around $3500 to help her out and get on her feet. This was my mistake, as I now owe almost that much for my own tuition.
I have been able to cover my school fees and I have paid for all my textbooks, but I need help to cover the cost of my tuition. My tuition is $3609. I only have to get through this year and then I’ll be able to have a steady job and continue to help my sister as well.
Any amount that you can contribute would be so incredibly helpful. Getting that number down means I can spend more time on my studying and less time stressing out about how I’m going to pay for the remainder of my education.
I appreciate you taking the time to consider helping me. Here is the link to my PayPal: paypal.me/Lea0123
Hi, my name is Lisa. I am desperately trying to find help with buying my daughters college books. Sadly we didn’t get the funding that we needed to pay for all of her tuition and books so we will owe $285 for tuition to the person we borrowed from but we will try to make arrangements to pay that back. We really thought she would get full funding for her school year because everyone of her siblings did when they went to college. We are struggling, desperate and devastated. My daughter is already two weeks into the semester with out a single book and her teachers are starting to get impatient. She has a friend who has been lending her books to her but she also needs to use them and it is an inconvenience. My daughter loves school she is so excited to start her freshman year and succeed but it is hard to do with out her books. She would like to avoid dropping out. If she drops out she loses the $285 down payment that she borrowed to hold her classes . I am so embarrassed, I feel like I let her down. My heart is in my stomach and I hate the thought of having her drop out just because of books. Her books total at about $370. At this point we would be grateful for one book because one book would put us one step closer. She is suppose to be writing in one of the books and that book is suppose to be turned into her teacher. She has not been able to hand in any book yet. One book is $200.00 and the other books are $25.00, $34.00 , $ 38.00 and $68.00 . She is taking two math classes (one class helps the other) and she has an art history class and Sociology class. I can offer any information needed for the bookstore or school if proof is needed and what you want. If someone can help us we will be so thankful! Thanks again Lisa 😇🙏🏻 [Read more…]
Greetings! I am a half-minority female from a small town in Maryland. I was born into a life of addiction, verbal, physical, and sexual abuse. I have done nothing but fight throughout my entire life. I can no longer make ends meet alone. I have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD, and severe depression. With these illnesses I still manage to wake up everyday and attend two jobs. I have seen awful things, I have experienced awful things and I need help. I feel as if I have no other option or nowhere else to go. In my mind I have even considered prostitution to make ends meet and that just isn’t acceptable-please find the compassion in your hearts to help me. I have faced racial oppression, and so many things on this earth. I just need extra help-I have no family, no friends. I am such a good person and would never harm a soul. I can’t live beneath the poverty line forever, for it feels like I might actually die if I continue to live without to this degree. So many statistics show that a person simply cannot live happily without making x amount of money a year. I was born into the streets of Baltimore city and somehow I am still here and still sharp as a tack-please support me and my education. The link to my paypal will be placed following this paragraph..even one cent can make a major difference. paypal.me/amaurabrisbon
Many thanks in advance for reading this and considering helping me to achieve my so far biggest dream of my life – to study and start a life in Canada.
I have worked hard, barely giving any time to myself in the last year, as well as lived on as much of a budget as possible to save money for school.
Unfortunately, that is not enough.
As an international student my tuition fees are insane. To be exact – it’s 15,8k / semester plus books, living, transportation – all the regular stuff on top of that.
My estimate of total costs for college is around 40k for both years. If with your help we manage to raise even half of it, that would enable me to study, by using my current savings and working during my studies to earn the rest of the necessary funds.
I love Canada, its people and for the first time in my life I feel at home and surrounded by like-minded people.
This is where I want to study, live and start building my business and life.
I have been business-minded my whole life (sorry for the cliché), the beginning of which is at my age of 10, when I earned my first cash selling hokey tickets.. : ) For which I bought my first computer and started building websites.
I really want to study in Canada and I want to study Business Management. I can achieve this goal of mine, only with your help!
As you might have guessed, since I’m asking for help like this, I have tried every other resource – bank loans (won’t issue a loan, because I am not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident), college financial aid, private funds and more – everywhere I get the same answer – nothing or close to nothing for internationals.
I create websites, I do graphic design, have done quite a bit events production and online and physical promotion. I’m always happy to help with whatever I can help you with.
Anyone who would help me in my journey will hold a dear place in my heart for the rest of time and if I can, I will with the greatest pleasure help make your ideas/dreams happen!
If things work out, I will start my studies in January 2018, Business Management at Humber college. I have already started couple projects in Canada, for instance – Project1 and Project2, for now, however, neither of them are making money yet, as I’ve just finished developing them and I need to get my work permit accepted first. Either way, I will continue and hopefully be able to turn them into something meaningful and cool.
I hope I’ve given a well-rounded mini-picture of my situation. If you have any questions or if you just want to shoot me a message – please do, I will be happy to chat!
Many thanks for reading, I truly appreciate your time!
Also if you have any suggestions – please contact me – email@example.com

Million thanks in advance!
I am 20 years old and I am in school for engineering. I have 2 years left and I do not have the money or the ability to get any more loans as my credit is bad due to my parents medical expenses. They are sick and elderly and cannot afford to help me. It is rather me doing my best to help them despite my young age.
Each semester of school at my university cost $5,000. I only wish to be able to finish school. I am currently living with a friend until Sept 1st to where I will have to leave and will most likely be living on the street. I have no money and only have $1.54 in my account. Only enough to pay for bus fare with a transfer.
I wake up everyday at 4am and get ready for school and leave at 7pm. I am taking 18 hours and am on deferred payment of which the next payment is due Sept 4th. I do my best in class and study hard but I worry that I will not be able to continue my education.
I know in this world today everyone is struggling and has hardship, but all I can do is ask. Please if there is anyone out there willing to help me I would be eternally grateful. I will accept any amount anyone is willing to offer.
Thank you for your time.

I am currently seeking help to pay half, if not, all of my school tuition for this semester. This would really help me to be able to save money for the next semester and gear up for the rest of the school year. I am currently looking for employment, however I need at least $1800 as down payment for this semester soon in order to be able to continue this Fall semester. If I am unable to pay the balance, I will have to apply again next Fall since it is a smaller school, and all courses are not offered every semester.
I have already relocated to the state in which I would receive my musical training. I moved from Georgia to Missouri for this specialized program. I have also gone to orientation and met all my classmates, which has solidified my reasons for wanting to try and make this semester work for me starting this year. I love the small size of the classes. Since it is a music program, I will enjoy the one-on-one classroom attention to improve my skill as well as get to know some other awesome musicians. I’ve always wanted to be able to express myself fully through music, and this training will help me to do that. This is a rigorous and excellent program, and I would hate to miss out on this opportunity and have to wait a whole year.
I have a $325 rent payment due every month on top of dog food and expenses, gas, groceries, books and whatever is not covered by this need-based donation. I estimate, monthly, that I would need $150 for gas, $30-50 for dog expenses (pending a major incident), $150 for groceries, and about $200 for school textbooks and supplies. This totals to about around $675 every month. These expenses don’t include my tuition payments. This level of expenses puts a strain on my limited schedule for good employment. If I don’t have to pay tuition for this semester, I can save up for next semester and stay afloat a little better. I just need a little help to continue my studies.
I need $1800 to start my semester and $3425 to completely pay for the entire semester. One of my passions is song and singing, and so would love to be able to throw myself into this world and create, with accuracy, what is in my heart and head and put it on display for the people around me, possibly around the world. You can help me realize this dream.

Alright, first of all, let me just thank you for deciding to read my post, it really means a lot. Secondly, I realize that the request I’m making isn’t really worthy of my asking for help. Most students will take out loans or apply for scholarships and while that’s perfectly fine for them, it’s not for me.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Megan and I’ve been through….. quite a bit. Now, I’m not saying that my experiences trump anyone else’s nor am I trying to pull the sympathy card. (Okay, I am playing the sympathy card just a bit.) But by telling you what my life has been like, you might get an idea of why I’m asking for help on this site rather than trying to take out loans.
I grew up in a single-parent household. My whole life it had only ever been just my mother and I. I have never known my father, have never seen a picture, I don’t even know his name. I was an only child that adored her mother. I guess you could say that I thought she “hung the moon”. She spoiled me with Barbies and McDonald’s chicken nuggets. It was just us against the world. At least that’s what she used to tell me.
In 2012 she met someone. They ended up in a relationship. And all I can pretty much say is that she chose him over me. I was in ninth grade at the time and every Friday I would come home and she would tell me to “hurry up and back my bag” because we were going to his house. Every weekend I would sleep on the couch in his living room while they, you know, (very loudly) and whenever they went out to do something, I wasn’t allowed to go with them. I was basically stranded at his duplex. The only thing that kept me entertained was the netbook my mom had given me for Christmas the year before. But then her boyfriend found out I had a Facebook.
Now, my mother had actually set up the account for me. It was private, etc, etc. And I never posted pictures of anything on it. But her boyfriend still didn’t like it so they took not only my Facebook account away, but the internet altogether. Next went my cellphone. And I soon had no contact with the outside world.
Spring 2013, he moved in with us. I hadn’t even been made aware of his moving in until I came home from school one Thursday afternoon and I found him changing the doorknob on my bedroom door. When I asked what he was doing he simply responded with, “I don’t want you to have locks on your doors.” (“Doors”, plural. I also had a bathroom which he replaced to knob on as well.) I asked my mom about this and she just sort of rolled her eyes.
The boyfriend also had a daughter. But she was lived with her grandparents in another state and had lived with them from the time she was four years old. Her father rarely visited her and never talked about her. But my mom convinced him it was time that his daughter come live with him. So he he brought her down and we all moved into a new house in a completely new county. She was two years younger than me.
The house was two stories and the “adults” divided it so that us “kids” would have our own sort of living room upstairs. Sounds really nice, right? Well, unless we were doing chores downstairs, we weren’t supposed to be downstairs. They didn’t want to deal with us. We weren’t allowed to have friends over, nor were we allowed to go to tutoring after school. They gave us endless chores, most of which were pretty much ridiculous. We would both come home with homework and sometimes we wouldn’t even get to it because the “motto” my mom’s boyfriend had was “housework first”. So my GPA suffered and for a while so did his daughter’s.
When I was sixteen, things changed. Both of the “adults” had jobs that would sometimes take them on business trips and it was literally a requirement (perhaps in the hopes to force his daughter and I to accept the “happy family” we’d become) to hug the parent that was leaving. So his daughter hugs him with no problem. My mother is standing right there next to us, watching. I tried to make the hug as short as possible (because he had always given me the creeps) and as I was pulling away, he grabs me around my upper back, pulls me back to his chest and then unhooks my bra. My mother saw, but she didn’t seem to care. In fact, she scolded me for roughly pushing her boyfriend away and running out the back door. That also wasn’t the first time she had yelled at me for what I saw as defending myself.
Before we had moved and before his daughter came to live with us, I experienced the worst birthday I’ve had so far. This was before he had even moved in with us. He and my mother had known each other for only a few months and she had invited him to go to a restaurant with us to celebrate my turning fifteen. He came over, and despite my being uneasy around him, everything seemed to be “okay”. Until a new neighbor knocked on the door and my mother went to answer it. The lady and my mom got into a conversation and the boyfriend got too close for comfort on the couch so I moved. He moved closer. I moved again and he followed. I finally got up to get my mom and and he roughly grabbed me so I followed my instincts and kicked him hard in the inside of his knee. I yelled for my mom he still hand’t let go, and when she failed to answer and he started to pull me towards him again, I pretty much headbutted him and kneed him in the groin which caused him to finally release me. I ran upstairs to my room and five minutes later, my mom was screaming at me for hurting her boyfriend. She wouldn’t even let me explain my side of the story.
And I wish it had ended there, but no no it did not. After she calmed down a little, her boyfriend acting like a hero ( pretending that he wasn’t mad at me just disappointed) we went out to Olive Garden where, as we were waiting for our entrees to arrive, he looked directly at me, out of the blue, and said, and I quote, “You know, you would make me a pretty penny if I sold you to some Mexican dude as a sex slave.”
Obviously I was shocked and freaked out, everyone in the same seating area as us is staring and my mom yells at me, tells me that I’m causing a scene. I was so shocked and just…. I don’t even remember how the rest of the night went.
I’m sorry, I know I’m giving you practically my whole life’s story but…. there is no “but”. After the bra episode, I started to fight back. I told the school counselor, she called CPS. When his daughter and I were summoned to answer some questions, I told the truth. But his daughter and my mom did not. And since it was two against one and my mom had made me out to be some sort of attention seeker (not really helping myself prove her words wrong by writing all this out and then posting it on the internet) CPS just seemed to drop it. After that, the “adults” started treating his daughter better than they treated me. She was suddenly allowed to go to the movies with her friends from school, she was excused from doing chores., etc. And I guess she figured out that by throwing me under the bus, she would continue to have such freedoms. So she did. Before being questioned by CPS we had had somewhat of a bond. We were both going through the same thing, we looked to each other for support but obviously that bond ceased to exist the moment she was given the chance to be a normal teenager. And honestly, I don’t blame her. Everyone has their own way surviving. As it turns out, her way and my way of getting through our situation just ended up being very different.
Everything came to a peak on January 14th, 2015. Ever since we had moved into the new house, my mom told me to keep our home life private. That meant I wasn’t supposed to tell anyone what was going on, not even my extended family. But after not seeing them for the whole of 2014, I missed my grandma. We had always been close. She would take me out during the summers while my mom was at work. She introduced me to volunteering. She was my best friend. And I was so alone and I was scared. I was afraid of my mom and her boyfriend and I just snapped. I called my grandma during lunch on the flip phone that my mom’s boyfriend’s daughter and I were given to only call our parents and every time it went to voicemail, my heart broke even more. But I knew she was probably volunteering somewhere so it wasn’t a surprise but it still hurt. The school day only had about thirty minutes left when she called me back. And I broke down. I told her everything. She said she had never really understood why every time she dropped me off at home why I would practically beg her not to leave but now she did.
I went home with a friend that night. I had called my mom and told her that I no longer felt safe at home and that I was staying with a friend for the night and I would be by to pick up fresh clothes in the morning. My mom said “fine”. About two hours after, Police officer showed up on my friends’ front porch. I had been reported as a runaway and they were there to take me back to my mother. They said that if I didn’t go with them willingly they would arrest my friend’s parents. So I left with them. I was put in the back of their car and was told that I wasn’t being abused, that I was white (and yes, these officers were of color) and that I didn’t know what it was like to be wronged. I was told that I was off my med, which I must mention, are for ADHD. ADHD! Not Schizophrenia. They returned me to my mother.
The next morning my mother and her boyfriend took his daughter and I to school. They never took us to school. We took the bus. They told us both to go to our classes so we did. I was in Physics when the school counselor I was alphabetically assigned to came in and told me to gather my things. On the way to the offices she kept repeating over and over again that she was sorry, so very sorry. My mother and her boyfriend had convinced the Principal and the assistant principal that I was suicidal and homicidal and that I needed severe help. My mother looked me straight in the eye while her boyfriend gave me a death stare that they were taking me to be mentally evaluated and that if I didn’t agree to go, I would be put in handcuffs by police and that I would be escorted there. I looked at the Principal and I told him that I had nothing to hide, I wasn’t the one who had done something wrong. But that I’d go, not of my own free will but because I refused to draw attention to myself while leaving the school grounds. I could tell that my statements unnerved him. Caused him to doubt what he’d been told to believe. But he let us leave.
I wasn’t evaluated. What was evaluated was the story that my mother and her boyfriend told about me worshiping the devil, threatening to kill them and the other teenage girl in the house. All of it was bull but the lady didn’t seem to care. I was never asked to give my side, I was only transferred to a “Behavioral Health Facility”. I spent two weeks there. I was put on medication for Bi Polar disorder (a diagnosis that has since been overturned several times by other doctors). The Adol patients weren’t allowed to go outside. My roommate thought I was Satan. After being discharged, I was required to attend six weeks of that facility’s outpatient program. During one of the family sessions with my assigned therapist, my mom told me that I would not be finishing high school (I was a Junior at the time) and when asked by the counselor what she expected me to do for education she reluctantly suggested that one day I could get my GED.
After my time in the outpatient program was completed, I went back to school. For two whole days. Then it was off to another facility where I spent about a week. I was discharged because no one believed I belonged there. I wasn’t and hadn’t ever been suicidal or homicidal, I had no history of self-harming, I had only ever taken the drugs prescribed to me, and I had never touched alcohol.
My mom immediately transferred me to different doctor. Again, this doctor didn’t listen to me, only to my mother and I was put in another facility. If you’re still reading, this….. (I highly doubt anyone is going to read this but I have nothing lose so I’m still going post it.) but, anyway, I’ll shorten the rest of this up. The seeming never ending string of facilities went on from January 15th to June (I don’t know the exact date, the staff never told us the date in the last facility. Days just blended together after a while.) and my mother finally got tired of me “trying to ruin her life”. So she gave me to my aunt, her sister, and my uncle. After that, I got to live somewhat like a normal high schooler. I got to go to Prom, I joined choir, I had friends over and I went to friends’ houses. I could stay after school for extra one-on-one help….. But I’ve been out of High School for a year now and I have been attending a community college. But, I’ve struggled with how the school’s program works and I’m just not succeeding there.
This is where my request comes in. I’ve found an online school (University of Phoenix) that seems to be the perfect match for how I learn. It’s only one course at a time so I can focus on the material before moving onto the next course and each course is only so many weeks. If I tried doing classes one at a time at the college been going to, it would take me years to graduate. But I want to go to school. I actually love learning but I don’t care for the school I’ve been attending. My family said they would pay for college but the plan had been to send me to this particular community college and I don’t expect them to pay for online classes that are more expensive. And, while I’ve been working full time since May, I don’t make enough to afford tuition throughout a whole academic year and still save enough to be able to move out by the end of next year. (I currently live with my aunt and uncle)
I just want to start out with a brighter future. Going into debt from student loans that I know I won’t be able to pay back anytime soon just isn’t the way to go. So please, if you have even just a dollar to spare, I would very much appreciate the donation. I know I’ve just poured out a sob story and that I am in no way special of entitled to anything. But I have nothing to lose here so I’ve decided to try asking for help. Thank you very much for your time.
I am a 45 year old mother of a 13 year old. I have been in an abusive and controlling relationship for 14 years and I desperately want to get out. I have no job, no money, and no friends. He controls everything. I need money to get out of this relationship. My plan is to take a bookkeeping course that will cost $1700 and start my on freelance bookkeeping business which will cost approximately $2000. I need to get out of this relationship before it kills me. Your donations would be greatly appreciated and mean the world to me.
I dated my husband three years before we married. During that time he never drank and treated me good or I would have never married him. Shortly after we were married he began working with men who were drug addicts and alcoholics. It did not take long before he was drinking with them every night. Why did I not leave then? I was in my thirties and divorced from a previous marriage that was toxic. I seem to attract this type of man but, have learned my lesson the hard way. I desperately wanted to have a baby and felt like this was my last chance for this to happen and I didn’t want to go through the humiliation of another failed marriage. I did get pregnant and after my son was born the verbal abuse started. I think the biggest reason I have stayed in this marriage is fear. I have no money to get out of this relationship and no income to support my son and myself. Starting a bookkeeping business would mean hope and freedom for me and my son. So, please consider donating money to our cause. Thank You.
I really hope someone out there can help me. I’m a full time working mother and lost the childcare support recently by a close relative. I’ve no one else available to look after the children and the amount of debt I’m in doesn’t allow any room for me to pay for nursery fees. With the two young children it’ll cost my entire wages and more to get them both into nursery and I’ll have no money left to pay for living costs nor my loan repayments etc. I’m currently on sick leave due to the stress from this and taking care of the children currently. I can’t afford to lose my job, but if I can’t get childcare I will end up losing my job. I love my job a lot and even if I left my job I’d be worse off, since I’ve got neverending bills to pay for every month. I don’t own my home so I can’t take out a secured loan on my home and with all my outgoings I wouldn’t be able to afford the extra repayments either. It costs £102 per day for both children. I work five days a week now but I’m may have to cut down my hours to work part time instead to reduce the amount of nursery fees (it’ll cost approx. £1632 per month if I worked part time). My eldest will be back in half day nursery (she’s 3) from September where there’s currently 15 hours free childcare where I live and my youngest (he’s 2) will start half day nursery in September 2018. My eldest will start full time reception in September 2018 then.
Only a year, I really need help for the one year. Once my eldest goes to reception full time it’ll only be the cost of my youngest and I’m determined to get myself a promotion by then to pay for his half day nursery fees then. Any help would be very much appreciated. Please help if you can.
My name is Claudia Martins, and I have been selected to take part in the Specialized Master in Cultural Diplomacy for fall session 2017 at Universitá Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, to be held in Rome, Italy. During this one-year program, I will have the opportunity to experience this multidisciplinary master with an in-depth knowledge of what cultural diplomacy is, and interact with experts on this subject.
An application followed by an interview was held by the university admission committee a month ago, and I was the privileged one to be selected. This is a lifetime opportunity where I will get an exposure to an innovative and unique approach to international relations and cultural diplomacy with professionals who understand and have experience with these subjects, who will surely provide me a fundamental understanding and practical skills necessary for a career in international affairs, and it is being always my dream to do a master’s degree and Ph.D. in this fields, and hopefully pursue a successful international career.
I earned a Bachelor Degree in Psychology at 10 years ago, and I have been lucky enough to work in a charity company helping families and communities in their struggles. Unfortunately, I cannot currently afford to pay my own way for this master course, also the combined cost of tuition fees and living expenses is simply unworkable.
I am therefore writing to ask whether you would consider offering some form into sponsorship to help me attend this course, which comes to around € 40,000 including all expenses, such as tuition fees (€ 10,000) and living expenses (€ 30,000) for one- year program.
As I said before, it will be a life changing opportunity for me, in doing something that I really love. The selection processes for any master degree it’s quite hard, be given a place among the hundred students it is something one cannot ignore, and I cannot pass it on.
I am seeking for a well-wisher who may help fund my education and enable me to achieve my goal. Any help will be highly appreciated.
I have attached the decision letter from the university. If you want more information, you are free to contact me at my E-mail: claudiapshy(at)hotmail(dot)com. Thank you for your support in advance.
Hello, my name is Julia and I am trying to save up money for college.
A little bit about me.. I am the oldest of 4 on my mother’s side and the oldest of 6 on my father’s, moved out as soon as I graduated high school, have supporting grandparents, and I love my best friend dearly. I have many goals in life that sprouted from a young age, including joining the healthcare field. My current goal is to become a Medical Insurance Coder.
My whole life, my family has told me that I’d have money for college, that I could be anything I’d like to be, that there’d be money there or financial assistance to help. What they didn’t tell me is that they would use the money for themselves, not mention it, then come time for choosing classes spring it on me. At first only slightly disappointed, I started looking into FAFSA with high hopes. I went to counseling, where my counselor acted as if it didn’t matter either way. Even with all of the help from FAFSA I am still thousands of dollars behind and losing hope each day.
It’s about a week until college, and I think I have enough to start my education with my grandparents help, but they can only assist so much. I am still holding hope that someone is generous enough to really help me in this leg of my journey. I have already applied for grants, scholarships, and even loans to no avail (besides the Pell Grant). I really need someone to believe in me and invest in my future. It’s the only way to get a real career and rid myself of my toxic family.
Beyond my grandparents, I currently have been abandoned emotionally and physically by all other family members. If I cannot offer anything to them, I am not important. I am skeptical about even posting this, but my in my heart I believe that there are others out there who do things out of the kindness of their hearts. I am aware how hard people work for their money, and it would be one of the most meaningful things that’s ever happened to me if this was successful and I could go to college worry free, or at least with less worries right now.
Total cost of college: Upwards of $15,000
Financial aid covers: $5,500
My grandparents: $1,500 approx.
So to complete college comfortably, my donation goal would be around $8,000, but of course anything will help me out through this stage of my life.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
Hello, I am Brian Romer and I live in the Bahamas where the cost of living is extraordinarily high compare to a place such as the United States and some others. I do work as a semi-skill mason here but still have my struggles with finances that would help me to return to college and complete my two year program. I am looking for the opportunity as a 27 year old who earlier in life wasn’t very focus or mature enough to understand how much an education really meant and that is the trap a lot of guys in the black community get themselves into. But during the 7 year break away from school, a lot of thinking have been done. I realize how much good I am able to produce in the medical field as a doctor after analyzing my passion for the science subjects like Biology, Combined Science, Physics and Chemistry and how thoughts after my internet research have caused me to realize a longing to restore people to good health and to put gratification on delay now, and focus in on my education, what is priority, and long-term, what is only right to do. I started out studying Civil engineering technology, 2 year program, at College of the Bahamas, which is now the University of the Bahamas.
I done up to about a year of work before going on what would have been a long streak which you might say seems like forever, but it was used instrumentally to help get my mindset right, really get myself together to make the most of the potential to impact the world around me in the best way possible. I know that when I am done with the 2 year program, that the doctor profession is that area of study and practice, which I am passionate about that will open the doors for me to create ladders of opportunities, libraries, jobs, build a social network for story-lovers(contacting programmers/developers), inventing efficient machinery/electronic machines, building learning and activity facilities for the youth, constructing educational and business platforms between the Bahamas and United States. One career can give me more leverage where I am able to do much more than thought possible and position me to take another career in the medical field that I am impressed and really passionate about.
Through a long term trust and faith in a higher being, I believe there is much to be accomplished even though it looks bleak every now and then. I moved from my hometown island to the city island of the Bahamas in 2015 which at the time, I decided I should return to college but never had enough funds because the fees went up since my last attendance or enrollment year 2012. Last year was pretty much just me still trying to manage to get back into college but no matter what I did, there was rent bills, groceries, car bills and just a lot of stuff going on that left me a sitting duck. Now I am in another new year 2017, and again I may be able to come up with at least $500 towards returning to college and completing my civil engineering technology bachelor’s degree program start of this month of August.
I know this is short notice but I just really thought about this method of help which I did not know existed. I googled and to my amazement there was this website even though I knew about charity, I just never quite thought about making myself a recipient of funds. I am of the independent mindset but realized that I am only getting older, and some effort has to be given in order to change the course or direction in which I tread momentarily. Therefore, I tried this method in hopes that somebody out there would be impressed in their heart to know that their support can help me to position myself to make a difference in the world, because it is my intention to do so, whether in the Bahamas or U.S. after completing the engineering program here and moving to the U.S. for studies as a Orthopedic Surgeon doctor.
The question is not whether I want to do it, its what is going to be that one thing which comes and makes it all come together. What or who will add more traction to the path that is before me. I am of the mind that humanity exist in a world of limitless possibilities. So much can happen and within so little time. There are great things that have happened, that are happening and will continue to happen despite how bleak it looks at times. One thing I know for certain, is that I believe in testing new ways and ideas that exist and may work for me, and that is why I am here today, and also while I am at this, I am currently looking into ways on the internet to do business or invest in entrepreneurship books that teaches internet marketing and E-commerce.
As a matter of fact, I have just came across this world of a self-help business platform which with sufficient investment and excellent management can provide the support necessary for bills and more. I believe this path is a worthy path and that I didn’t discovered or started to look at it by mistake within the last two months now, but that there is something supreme and life journey through the struggle and pursuit of something that can be supportive has been put into the path which I can look at. I believe with some traction I will be the you-tuber to video record my journey especially as a medical student and the struggle and what methods I am using and how there is help out there.
I will be able to document the journey that can help hundreds, maybe thousands, and information which I’ll provide can be used for the betterment of all races, nationalities, backgrounds and religions. Doesn’t matter who you are, we all are important in our own personal ways, and we contribute in so many beautiful and unique ways. So I thank you for whoever you are reading this, I appreciate the time you’ve given and generously if you find it fit to support my decision to return to school, finish up, then follow my passion into the medical field, a kind donation or gift towards University of the Bahamas, $2500, which in Bahamian currency is the same. I know I am one person but I know I am determined to make huge differences out in the great world. I know with the right people or key situations that superb things happen daily.
Hello, my name is Joshua.
A while ago I got very sick. I had a dengue fever and it brought on an idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), you can read more about it here: https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/000535.htm
Basically, my body was not producing platelets, which are needed in order for blood to clot, so I was at risk of bleeding out from any small injury. They had to give me a lot of platelet transfusions and it didn’t really help, they had to give me steroids and it didn’t help either, in the end, they had to treat me using Eltrombopag, a very expensive medication of Revolade brand.
Why do I say all this? Because through this, my family, being of scarce resources, had to pull through taking loans and making promises to people. But above all the money that had to be used in order for my life to be saved, the thing that hurts me the most is that savings that were destined for my sister’s college education had to be spent.
Now, I’m alive and well, but my sister is about to get a grant from an institution that would allow her to pay her tuition at a discounted price, the thing is, that discounted price is still too much for my family and I fear my sister might have to pass on this opportunity. It pains me so much that in order to save my life, my sister’s education had to be put at stake.
I don’t regret being alive, and God knows I wish I didn’t ever get sick. The truth is at the moment I’m not able to give my sister back that money and she needs money to pay for the admission price of the institution she is going to study in, but it is time-sensitive and I just don’t think I’ll be able to pull through before the deadline for her admission is past.
I don’t want my sister to lose the opportunity to get a scholarship and build her career because they had to save my life. This is breaking my heart so much, I feel so dejected as if I disappointed my sister by staying alive long enough so they had to use her savings. I talked to my bank and asked for a loan, they rejected me. I have nothing I can sell, I can’t donate my blood or organs due to past illness. I’m at my wit’s end, please someone help, with anything at all.
Currently, her admission cost is $416.66 in US dollars, but anything helps.
My name is Jason.
I am the oldest of 3.
I’m raising money for college.
As a child, my family told me I would go to college when I got older. My family supported me every time through thick and thin, which I deeply I appreciate. However, my family always had issues financially. Currently, I am in college with financial issues.
I have received financial aid from Pell-Grants, Cal-Grants, etc.. However, the federal grants alone aren’t enough so, the federal loans would be enormous. I am ineligible for Federal Work-Study from my federal aid. The federal grant and Cal-Grant varies depending on the college, which is less due to the fact the Academy of Arts is a private Art college. I had updated my FAFSA recently, which resulted a reduction of deduction of federal aid for 2016/2017 and future financial 2017/2018. In addition, the tuition cost per unit increased, which has slightly affected financial planning. The results is that I would be taking enormous amount of loan.
However, I have m already attending college. I have applied for many but have not earned any scholarships.
The college that I am attending is the Academy of Art University. This is my desired college because I felt that its program (major/courses) is something that I am very interested in. I felt that being a game design is something that I am good at. I felt that the game design is something that I want to do and would do well at. I want to take the risk of doing something that I have an interest in. I want to experience new things, meet new people, and keep pushing forward in college knowing the hardship I would face and feel joy knowing that it would be worth the experience, the happiness, and the success in college.
This (GoFundMe) means so much to mean because, as a child my parents worked hard making a living to support my family. It was extremely hard for my parents since they were from they had little experiences, both were born in Vietnam with a difficulty speaking English. My father was in college for approximately 1 year before quitting which didn’t work out for him. Eventually, I came in my parent’s life. 6 to 5 years later, my parents then had my little sister, and 2 years later my baby brother came. My mother left my father and me and siblings because of family complications. Through with the help on my father side, he managed to support us. However, as time progressed, my father had difficulty finding jobs.
As for my father, he is in Hawaii taking care of himself. He was relocated because he received a job working with a friend of my grandmother. He also moved due to lack of career at home along with financial and family complications. However, he won’t be able to support my mother and her children.
After a few years, my mother recently came back into my siblings and my life. She worked extremely hard as a waitress with a difficult time speaking English.
Her back ached from working sometimes 6 to 7 days a week, staring from 10-11 am or 12 p.m. the latest and to 2-4 pm then back to work 10 p.m. the latest. She gets home very late. She hardly had time to spend time with her children.
She now spends working at a different restaurant and spends time with us making little income. Our household is 4.
Currently I am living with my mother with have a job that pays very little now and barely having any money by the time I finish college to pay for my tuition, let alone take care of herself and my sibling. If it wasn’t for that my mother’s side of the family who takes care of us, I wouldn’t know where my family would now.
However, she barely believes in small charity, that she must always pay them back big or little. She would pay back friends even family with food or money or even paying their meal at restaurant
Here is what she does (pay back)/expenses:
Restarunt: Paying for most if not all the meal.
Food: Pay back through Food/Money
Money: Pay back with Money
Expenses: A/N: Not my place nor do I remember on how much money my mother spends
Food: $100-200 within a month (or spending money &/or multiple grocery shopping within a month or both.)
House mortgage, renting a house: A lot of money. (She recently bought a house 2 years ago and still paying back)
Gasoline, about $40 per 10-16 miles
Utilizes: Gas, water, electricity, etc..
Use the heater a lot.
Have 5 dogs: 1-2 bag of Dog food
My Parent Plus Loan $27000-28000 for 1 year/2 semester (will start paying plus interest after 4 years or finishing college with 6 months deferred.
I love my mother very much that I can’t bear to watch my mother pay for college, which is why I am tell you and my purpose on GoFundMe. I have researched that with the goal of donations would be deducted due to taxes.
Unfortunately, the college I am currently attending stated that I don’t have enough money to pay for just 2 semesters. The school stated if she qualifies, which she would have little to no money and most likely be in debt. If she is denied from the Parent Plus Loan, then I would indeed take an additional loan instead of the Parent Plus Loan. However, my mother was required to take the Parent Plus Loan. Because, I took the parent plus loan I was ineligible for the work study federal grant.
I am ineligible to receive the work study . After spending Fall semester at San Francisco Academy Art University, I decided to take online courses at home once I finish Spring semester since i would reduce cost and expenses. I also have a feeling I would a significant difficulty finding a job I am qualified for.
These are the cost at on campus I had for a 1 year/2 semester from 2016/2017.
Campus dorm: *varies* $10000 per year/$5000 per semester for a Dorm Double Full Bath (2 Bedroom and full bathroom) (2 semester) for 2016/2017 *varies on different dorm/year/building type, etc.*
Food (Meal) Plan: Required in certain dorms Plan *varies* $2500 per semester/$5000 1 year. 19 meals per week. *If left over meals then it is transfer over to the next plan semester. However, if there is any left food/money not spent then there is no partial refund on remaining items.
**I have an issue with this; I live in a campus dorm where food plan is required. Not that I don’t mind however; There is no partial refund once the meal plan is over even if the fall semester meal plan transfer to spring semester. I have not eaten meals that is about $2500. Moreover, I estimate about $200 a month on groceries . I spent $2500 with just myself for 4 to 5 months per semester on campus for 2 semesters. I question “What person eats $2500 per semester (or 4 to 5 months) worth of food, unless they go out a lot and/or eat at somewhere expensive”?. **
Tuition: REQUIRED: 3 unit per class. $873 (was $835 increased dramatically) per unit, Class registration fees; about $120, Plus fees (course fees *varies*; about $400 onsite or more, , and materials (books, textbooks), etc.)
Laundry: 1 to 2 weeks; $1.50 for wash and $1.25 dry = $2.75 for 17 week/1 per week, or 8-10 week/every 2 weeks. Or more with size of load of laundry to wash.
Others: School resources (books, textbooks)
Miscellaneous: Food (snacks, meal outside of food plan)
Being a full time student not only benefits me getting a degree, my mother can claim me on her tax return to help her and my family.
Also, my FAFSA (Financial Aid) for 2017 2017/2018 would not cover for the year let alone a semester. This is a visual example/exact of cost of financial aid and possible cost of attendance.
FAFSA Outcome Offered-
Pell Grant $5,920
SEOG Grant $600
EX.2: Loan.1: Sub: $4,500
EX.3: Loan 2: UnSub: $2,000
EX.4: Parent Plus Loan Outcome $28,080
Accepted Without Parent Plus Loan-
FAFSA Outcome Accepted-
Pell Grant $5,920
SEOG Grant $600
EX.2: Loan.1: Sub: $4,500
EX.3: Loan 2: UnSub: $2,000
EX.4: Parent Plus Loan Outcome $0
However, FAFSA (Financial aid does not pay for part semester or half year, the money will be divided by half per semester. So, I cannot afford go to college. In addition, Academy of Arts University have little to know transfer Units. Meaning, I cannot transfer to a different Major nor different College due to being an art school and/or different requirements for transferring different majors/school. I have already spent time and money that it is too late for me change and keep moving forward. This is the money that would be given to me that would be split between 2017/2018.
Pell Grant $2,960
SEOG Grant $300
EX.2: Loan.1: Sub: $4,500
EX.3: Loan 2: UnSub: $1,000
EX.4: With Parent Plus Loan $14,040 Without Parent Plus Loan $0
Total: With Parent Plus Loan $20,550 Without Parent Plus Loan $6,510
Pell Grant $2,960
SEOG Grant $300
EX.2: Loan.1: Sub: $4,500
EX.3: Loan 2: UnSub: $1,000
EX.4: With Parent Plus Loan $14,040 Without Parent Plus Loan $0
Total: With Parent Plus Loan $20,550 Without Parent Plus Loan $6,510
Full Time student for me is 4 class per semester is 3 credits which total of 12 credits that cost $873 per credit/semester all together cost $10,476.
24 credits per year total cost with both semester: $20,952
As stated above, my Financial Aid would not be able to pay half of semester let alone 2 and since financial aid is split between semester I cannot pay for part of semester. I could choose to take less class per semester to pay less. However, I would take a long time to finish college, more time, and more money spent. Also, I am limited to FAFSA for 12 semesters; I have used up 3 semesters, 5 including for this year (2017/2018).
Out of College Tuition Cost Outcome with expenses school related but necessities (Tuition includes school related)
As from above FAFSA.
Credits Per Semester: 3 credits Per class: 4 Class: Cost $10,476
Both Semester (1 year): $20,952
Fees- Class registration around $130
Other Fees *VARIES*
Food Out of pocket *VARIES* However, food should not cost around $2500 per semester (for around 4-5 months ($5000 per year 8-10 months with breaks in-between of 1-2 months), since $200 is the approximate amount needed for a single person for each month.
For example, food plan start 2nd and last week of August and ends at 2nd or 3rd of December; For first semester of year. Meal Plan start 1st or 2nd week of February and ends 3rd or 4th week of May of 2nd semester for 2nd semester of year. In-between breaks and/or summer I am at home. I do not eat that much food and skip breakfast a lot or eat early lunch.
Rent-My mother will help me out on rent or i will be living with my mother.
Internet-My mother or I will pay for it since My school work (online classes will depend on it). Also, by having my classes on online I can focus some of my time finding a part-time job and side project.
GoFundMe will help pay for any remaining tuition for the next 4 years, while my my financial aid would pay most of it.
By my estimate, all loans at the end of the next 4 years would total $43,500 not including *INTERESTS*, and other setbacks incase (such as materials for classes, repeating a class or two, and other fees)
I Just ask 1 dollar per person would make a huge difference, whether it’s big or small, it’s the thought that counts. I ask of you to please support me, big or little, that is all that makes the difference. The goal I am setting would pay for half or partial to my college expenses. I know, I am asking a lot, but this would mean so much to me and helping my mother in some way. I may appear to be asking much however, I have taken account most of each possible way out there, which still results being in debt immensely regardless what I do.
I would be very thankful knowing that you, kind and considering people who are willingly donating their money to those in need. This makes a difference to me greatly. Thank You for your kindness. I will never forget the things you have done for me.
To clarify, I am still a student and I am heading into my 5th and final year. Things were going well for me until I dislocated my knee cap (during a trip down my stairs), which got me fired from my job at the time due to it requiring me to lift heavy objects. I was able to pay for most of the loans monthly due to the amount of money I saved up from my past jobs but after two years, my money went down the drain. By the third year of college, I had to choose between paying the loans or going without dinner. Now that I’m at my 5th and last year of college, I decided to live with my family but I don’t want to burden them with shouldering such an immense debt. To some people, the debt may not be much but to a family that raised itself up from poverty, it is more than we can handle. I’d rather go hungry than let my siblings and parents go without food. Unfortunately, my parents still want to help me out even though it was cause them stress. My family is becoming more and more stressed due to my situation and the fact that we have about 2 more kids that are planning to attend college in the next few years.
I got desperate and I started turning to using paypal credit to pay for some loans due to the sheer amount I had to pay. This, in turn, increased my debt. I had no sense of money management and caused even more stress to my family. By the time I had a job again, I could only pay half of my bills off per month. That’s not including the phone bill, which I think I might have to stop paying and just use email as my primary source of communication. I was looking to see if I could raise about $10k as that would be enough for me to pay off my current Paypal credit debt, while paying off a semester of debt. If I could raise the full $44k I owe that would be fantastic, but I believe $10k is all I need for some room to breathe.
I barely ask for favors and barely beg as I believe money is something that should be earned. I know I am being hypocritical but I underestimated student loan debt and the money I earn isn’t enough to give me and my family a sustainable life. If you need anything else for proof please contact me at my email: LennyRann1@gmail.com
If you’re interested in hearing how I turn out after donations, please leave a note with your donation that lists your email, as that will be my primary source of communication.
Hi my name is Shannel Feranand, I live in London, United Kingdom. I am humbly and desperately soliciting your utmost help and support to fund my integrated Masters in Pharmacy at Kings College University in the UK.
I was really excited when I found out that I have been offered a place at Kings on this course as it is one of the world’s top 10 universities for Pharmacy. However I was shocked and absolutely devastated to find out that I am unable to get funded by student finance for the tuition fees.
Tuition fees per year £9250
I have recently graduated with a first class BA of science (Honours) in forensic science from the University of West London.
However, I have always had a passion for help and caring for people, having worked in care I was able to see the positive impact pharmacist have on the life of both care residence, family members as well as myself.
The field of pharmacy to me is a very important area of study as we now experience the most highly and difficult issue surrounding diseases or medical condition probably since human history. This to me indicate how extra ordinarily important scientific advancement along with pharmacist contribute in the field of medicine and change the face of societies all over the world.
Pharmacist aim to improve the well being of the most important resource that is human resource. With this in mind and my passion for excellence in education, these serve as the most important drive to me.
Unfortunately, with fees now at £9250 per year I am unable to afford to pay for this course as both my parents are not financially equipped and are on a low income. Therefore, my only hope of fulfilling my dream is the generosity from people like you. I do hope that you are able to understand, and sympathies with me and hopefully donate whatever you can, every little helps no matter how much. I will appreciate whatever donations you make towards this course, I have come this far as to get into one of the world’s most prestigious universities for pharmacy and believe that God has his plans for me that I will secure this place and believe that he will touch your heart to help me towards this.
I am a student currently residing in Singapore. I just graduated from college end of last yr and received my a level results this year. I applied for Murdoch University in Perth, Australia and received an offer to do Animal Science next February. My passion lies in veterinary science but Singapore does not offer any vet courses. Due to me being an international student, the school fees are really expensive amounting to at least 33k per year. The school will offer me to enter directly into the 2nd year of vet sci if I manage to do well for animal science in my 1st year. I am confident that I will be able to enter vet school. However, the school fees for vet school is way higher than that of animal science. I come from a low income family. Both my parents are old and only my dad is the sole breadwinner of the family. He is a 61 years old taxi driver and the market out there is getting more and more competitive. My parents are not very healthy either. They always prioritise me and wish that I will be able to fulfil my dream one day and that is why they encourage me to take up the uni offer and to get student loan from the local bank. And if need be, my parents say that they will give me their own savings to help out in my studies. But, there is high interest rate from the bank and I truly do not wish to burden my parents any further. I really hope to receive any form of help available to me right now. My only wish is to be able to pursue my passion and to graduate happily to make my parents proud of me. And I wish to give them a comfortable retirement life ahead. Please offer me some help. I will be very thankful.
My name is Olivia and I am going to be a Sophomore in college this fall; at least I am supposed to be. But due to my personal financial situation, it doesn’t seem like I will be able to continue my college education this fall. I am a psychology major at Alverno College in Milwaukee, WI. My college is absolutely outstanding and just in that first year I had so many great opportunities that I am thankful for. Being a private institution, the tuition is pretty expensive. I try my best to make ends meet by applying for scholarships in between working my minimum wage job. My best effort was enough to get me through the first semester with only a short amount taken out in loans. During my second semester, the spring semester, my best effort was not enough to pay off my tuition and now I am in a rut trying to pay off the remaining balance before the fall 2017 semester starts. My remaining balance totals to $641.67 at the moment and I am continuing to pay it off in small increments. As we are now in the midway mark of July and the fall semester starts late August paying my remaining balance on my own is becoming more and more unrealistic. Paying for my basic living necessities is hard enough on a minimum wage income. I have started sacrificing some luxuries in my life to try to pay off my bill in time for the fall semester such as my phone bill. But it simply isn’t enough in the short amount of time I have left to pay this off. I whole heartily want to continue my education at Alverno College and will continue to try my hardest to be attending this fall. Donations would be greatly appreciated, even a penny helps.

To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Jada Williams and I am 22 years old. I currently attend San Francisco State University as an F-1 international student. I am on a F visa because I was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and moved to the states when I was 5. I do not qualify for student loans or financial aid because of my citizenship status here in the U.S. As a international student I have to pay out-of-state tuition which cost me over $9,000 a semester. My yearly cost come close to $30,000 with books and housing added on top. My parents are both on visas as well, my dad having a work visa, is the only able to work legally in the states. I have 3 younger siblings so whatever income he brings in has to provide for us a a family of 6. As you can imagine we have to live paycheck to paycheck. I have been lucky enough to have grandparents who fulfilled my dream of being the first in my family to attend a 4-year university. They have helped me pay for everything, just recently they have retired because of old age and have used up all of their available US funds to help me out because the Canadian dollar is very bad right now. I want to continue my dream of graduating from a 4 year but that has to come a stop right now. I am not able to work legally and can only gain money from families that are willing to let me watch their kids or their pets. I have never used a website like this but I am running out of options. MY semester is fast approaching and I have no help financially to continue reaching my goals and pursue a career in Physical Therapy. I hate asking for help and have tried my best to make the most of my situation because my life has always been in California and I would really like to continue living here. If you chose to donate, I can ensure you that it goes to a great cause. That it goes to a hard-working young woman who wants to achieve her dreams and make her family proud. That it goes to a young woman who hopes to obtain a green-card and live here permanently. That it will go towards all the days where I have to make sacrifices to get where I want to be in life. If you donate I can ensure that your money will not be a waste and that I will use whatever I can get to stay driven on my path to success. Please take a chance to read this and invest in my dreams just like you have invested in your own dreams and your children’s dreams, or your family member’s dreams and your friend’s dreams. I know that I pride myself on supporting people who are motivated in life and use their time to make something of themselves. I am asking you to support me while I make something of myself. All I need is a little push from you to get that much closer to my dreams. If you have reached the end of this, thank you so much for your time and any sort of donation is very much appreciated. I hope that you see me in the news as an inspiring physical therapist. Have a wonderful day! I have attached a photo of my bills this month.
Hello Everyone, Thanks for stopping by and reading my story and message.
I would like to start with how I saw a big dream of coming to USA and completing my Masters Degree. I have studied Engineering in my Undergraduate and after that I planned to move to USA for my higher education. I was always good with studies and sports. After my graduation, I gave GRE and with very good score I got admission from a very reputed University in Illinois.
Since I belong from very average earning family, all these looked like a dream. I took loan from bank to pursue my education. The loan amount was around 35,000$ and the repay amount to bank with interest would be 66,000$
After completing my Masters I tried very hard for the first 9 months to get a decent job, but I couldn’t, although I tried a lot. The reason of rejection was because I din’t had any prior work experience. Almost got rejected by 78 interviews. I can’t explain how much and what I have gone through in that time. Family responsibility, bank loan repayment pressure, everyday survival etc. But somehow, I got a job in a company but the pay is very less. I took it so that at least I will get some experience. I am getting money just to survive. The big burden on my head is regards to my Educational Loan, which I am finding very hard to repay. My parents are old and not in a condition to help. I am trying to work hard but still not able to make money to repay my loan. I don’t know what to do.
I was online and saw this website ad. So posted here. Please help me out with this situation. Any help would be great help. Thanks
Hello. My Name is Nikola. I am 25 years old with a big wish to study tourism. I like communicating with people from different parts of the world, and I am good at it, I speak 4 major foreign languages. When I was 19, I abandoned my college at first semester when I was 19 because i had a combination of financial and health problems and I could not cope with. I had a panic disorder which is thankfully fully resolved now through a lot of fight and hardships.. This year I wanted to return to college. I falsely believed that I could pay my tuition fee in instalments and at latter date (which would still not be easy for me).. But now I found out I need pay up the whole amount ( 7000 kn, it is about 1000 EUR) at the same time, and really soon. By 19th July which is 8 days from now. I am totally broke and don’t have that 1000 euros I have barely some money for additional enrolment costs. I dont have anyone who could borrow me the money, I will try sell some things but it will not be enough. So I am desperate and I am asking you, kindhearted stranger for help. I really don’t want to lose another year, as I am already a bit old for college. Every help would be appreciated. Every good deed will come back to you. You can contact me by email, or simply donate to my paypal account – paypal.me/nikolamarkovic91
At last I resort to do this because I don’t know anymore who can help me. I’m a single mom of 4 months old boy. To be honest I can’t be called single yet because I still have a husband, who I desperately want to runaway from. But I can’t, with 4 months old baby and no money, I can’t do that. And believe me, no one would help me.
I married him without love, because my mom beg me. She is crying, she use my dying grandpa as a reason. Even though I resist so bad, in the end I married him after so much pressure put into me. This is the worst mistake I made in my life. At that time, I thought he is nice guy. He seem really nice. Shy, polite and keep saying that he is in love with me. I thought “why not?” then just 2 months into marriage, he slowly showing his real face. He destroy me.
I wish I’m a stupid woman. I wish I’m naive woman. But I’m not. My consciences and awareness of his manipulative way to control me and my family torture me. I’m sane enough to know that he can’t respect boundaries. First he destroy my dream. I’m still in college and he told me to not pursue my education further and working before he got two children first from me. He is talking as if he forbid me because he loves me too much. Then he destroy my relationship with my parents and family. Every time he doesn’t get what he wants, or he can keep me for himself, he will play victim and come crying to my parents and my sickly grandpa about my ‘cruel’ behavior towards him.
And the nightmares. All those nights with him. It doesn’t matter I’m sick, it doesn’t matter I don’t want to do it, I’m crying, shivering in horror he keep doing it. And no one would believe me. When I confronted about his abuse, he said he can’t control it because he loves me so badly, he doesn’t know what he did is abuse. When I told my parents about his abuse, they confronted him and all he just have to said is “I’m old, and I want to have child as soon as possible.” And they let him off just like that. And the cycle repeated.
After showing PTSD symptoms and many panic attacks later my parents agreed to separate me from my husband. For like 9 months I can’t even face him, even hearing his voice making me hiding under bed or closet. My parents angry at me for being like that. They told me I’m exaggerating things. They told me he is sorry and I should forgive him. They told me they already having so much problem and I’m just adding into their problem. They agreed to protect me from him because they don’t want another mentally disturbed daughter (yeah, they have another one) but they don’t want me to avoid him. Now he has a son, he keep coming to my house under excuse to visit his son.
If you asking me why I don’t go to police. Because marital rape is not considered as a crime in my country. And I don’t have any evidence either. I don’t have anything as a valid excuse to persecute him. And nobody believe me. They keep looking at me like I’m a crazy for wanting to divorce such a fine man. My mom going around telling our relatives, neighbors and everyone she know that I’m just having a immature tantrum. No relatives, friends even siblings would help me. They keep encouraging me to make amend and reconcile with my husband. I’m left alone with no support.
There’s so many times I’m considering suicide, but now after being blessed with a son that I love with all my heart that option is no longer exist. I can’t let him taking my son from me or my disturbed family being the one who take care of him. I have nowhere to go and left with only one option. To finish college, work, and being able to support myself. My husband agreed to divorce me if he is sure that I can support myself he said. My parents allowed me to go if they don’t need to fund me.
My PTSD is starting to lessen. I still have my final paper to finish but it takes a long time. My initial depression not helping me and now juggling as a new mom of 4 months old baby everything is hard. I’m still in progress finishing this paper but the end of semester is near and I need money to pay off another semester. My mother refuse to pay for me. She asks my husband for money, and my husband told her that I need to ask him by myself. He wants me to beg.
I can’t do it. I’d rather beg a stranger rather than begging him. I know this sounds I refused because of my pride, but no. Everything would be worse. I can’t be in debt with him. He always trying to buy his way with money. With his limited money. It is torturous for me accepting his money because that would mean I accept his abuse. I’m trying to refuse my fate as a sold “goods” by my parents.
Help me. I’m sorry I can’t provide much detail and evidence of my story. I don’t need much. Only 200$, that’s the amount I need to pay for another semester. It seems so little but it is huge for me because I have zero money. And my parents refuse to pay for it because they want me to come back to my husband out of desperation.
This place is the only place I can get fundraising anonymously. The other places would need me to link to my facebook accounts and get support from family and friends. I can’t imagine what kind of disaster I would bring to my family if I did that.
I have paypal account, but if you having hard time to transfer to my paypal account (I tried to verify it but it asking for my credit card and to make it I need to have a job first), you can contact me by my email. We can discuss the best way to transfer money.
Please help me. I need to pay for it before end of August. Thank you so much.
My name is Jennifer and I am currently 17 years old. I am going to give you a somewhat brief background just so that you kind of know a little more about me. I come from a low-middle class family. The money is enough to make ends meet but not exactly enough to support the chase of my dreams. As soon as I turned 16 I started working my first job. With that job I saved up just enough to be able to get a car with the condition from my parents that I pay the monthly payment as well as insurance and gas. Being a full time student and part time worker was not easy. Right now I am working two jobs over the summer in order to try to save up for when school starts since I will only have enough time to work one job.
I am going to be a senior this coming August, however I will be attending college. I have always been in the most advanced classes and I have always been at the top of my classes with almost perfect straight A’s and that put me at an advantage of starting college courses early.
“Well she has it all figured out” you might think. Well actually I do not. As soon as I turn 18, which is also the time I will be graduating, from high school, my parents have decided I need to leave the house because of family reasons. With my plans being that I want to study at UCF, in Orlando, FL, (where I aspire to become a nurse) which is about 4 hours away from my home, and I believe I am going to struggle. It will be a new city, new school, no friends, and no money.
At this moment I am looking to save up money for the tuition, textbooks, dorm, and other expenses that will need to be made during the transition from high school to college in a new and bigger city. I know that working one part time job and going to school will not allow me to raise even a quarter of the money I need for college. I will completely understand if you turn down this plea for help, I understand that there are other people in more immediate need of financial assistance.
However, thank you for taking the time from your day to read this, I genuinely appreciate it.

My name is Lovemore Barnabé Nkhoma, I am from Mozambique, I student at Eduardo Mondlane University in Maputo, I am 22 years old and I need your help! I am studying agriculture engineering but my passion is languages, I can speak eight different languages including my mother language (Portuguese), why I am telling this because I would like to study abroad, and I have this chance by Confucius Institute to study Chinese and Agriculture in China. They give us a scholarship to continue our studying there, but also they have some statements to take us there.Some are difficulty to me, like pay the Visa trip and the Ticket to China, what is expensive to me; if I could I would be there in time. And there they give us the necessary for a living and continue our studies.
A Visa here in Mozambique to China costs at least 110$ to 180$ Dollars depending in how long will someone be there, and the ticket around 1000$ Dollars, and these are very hard for me. Since last year I am saving money for it, but my bills as student ruins every cent.
I have this in me, I would really love to study abroad, I can’t let this opportunity pass. I wondering to start a YouTube channel to teach some of languages that I know, but it takes also some costs that I can’t pay for it.
I am here asking for all of your partners of this organization to support this dream of this young boy. Every cent you send it is a water that watering my hope. I am asking you for your support.
If you would like to talk to me and know more about this, or who are you helping you can search me on my Facebook.
Lovemore Barnabé Nkhoma.
A little background about me: My name is Taylor, I’m 18 years old, and I recently got accepted to my dream college, UNO (University of Nebraska at Omaha). I have been wanting to go to college in Nebraska for about 5 years now, and through many years of hard work, dedication, and a lot of application fees, I have been accepted!
Many of you are probably wondering, “Why Nebraska?”
A few reasons; Huskers football (Go Big Red!), a lot of my friends are there (including one who I was in her wedding!), my boyfriend of two years lives out there, and Nebraska has a few well known medical schools and highly rated psychology departments. I am pursuing psychology, hoping to work towards a masters degree, possibly a PhD.
I would like to pursue psychology, because, with my past and the mental illnesses I live with, I don’t want anyone else to have to battle it or grow up with it alone. I would like to be a professional that someone can be comfortable with, and trust. It’s a fancy way of saying that I want to help people. I love the human brain, I love studying behavior and the whys behind people’s thoughts and opinions and emotions. Whether my degree takes me to my own practice, or a high school counselor, I know I’ll be happy with my career.
Also, I have the opportunity to live off campus, and knowing my mental illnesses, and the fact that I have two cats, one of which is my certified therapy pet, I feel that it would be a better option for me to live off campus rather than in a dorm.
So, next possible question, why am I on GoFundMe? Well, I am currently working two jobs, one of which I work 8 hour shifts Monday-Thursday, then I do weekend evenings at the other job, which includes tips. I have sold a few of my belongings, and I am even helping family friends with household work and errands for extra cash.
However, as many of you probably know, moving and college is not cheap at all; and with my moving date in a month and a half rapidly approaching, having enough money saved is a must.
The money I am currently saving will go towards my first year’s credit hours at UNO, the deposit on my apartment, and moving expenses.
Thank you all for reading my story.

Hello everyone, my name is David, I’m 32 years old, I’m Italian but I have been living in Australia since 2013. For my prospective of life, I always tried to help people and is very hard but is very hard ask money because I have never done before, especially to people that I do not know, but right now I do not have any other choice, this is my last resort. I know that the majority of people on here seek money as well as they have their own stories, thus this is mine. I did lots of mistakes, like everyone, during my life but I do not regret them because at that time they were the best choice for me. I want to start from the inception of that, giving you a little background, when I was 16 I lost my mother with cancer as well as my father in 2009, both of my parents gave me great values that are very rare in nowadays society, especially in the youth generation. I studied Nautical School and kind of university in north of Italy, afterward I started to work as Navigation Officer for 3 years on merchant ships around the world, since I have been fired from my company in 2012 because they start to employ extra European Officer on naval industry. So, some friends of my dad, Italians emigrated in Australia around 2000 asked me to come in Melbourne to start a new life, they promised to help me, but they did not. I moved in Melbourne with my ex partner, and I brought with me around 30000 Euro, money that I gathered during my ship’s job. Since he begging we worked both in hospitality, and after our first year we applied for the first student visa, during my second year in Melbourne meanwhile I was working and studying an English course at same time, I had a consultation with an immigration agent that advised me that if I would ‘ve enrolled in a university degree, this would have been the best choice for my future as well as for my permanency in Australia. I worked for another year and half to collect money for my degree, so I enrolled in Naval Architecture degree at University of Tasmania. University gave an offer of 117300AU$ including the health insurance for me and my partner, with money earned during my job in hospitality I have paid my Foundation Program, my health cover and my first semester of this year for a total of 37000$AUS, moreover for a great results obtained last year I got a scholarship of 25% less on my degree tuition fees. Thus, for the rest of my three years and half I have to pay around 10000$ per semester. My ex broke up with me and went back to her family after that after I moved alone in Tasmania and when I started my university everything start to be hard, I could not find any kind of job, because in this small cities, exists more day life rather night’s one, even restaurants closed often 8.00 pm, and I got lots of lectures and tutorials during the day and sometimes till 6pm. Now I have just finished my semester, and I achieved great results, I have talked with university advisor and the institution cannot help at all, because basically I am an international students and I do not deserve this kind of rights.
I’m trying to find some jobs but for my age, and this city is hard, I really love dogs and I’m trying to promote myself as dog walker. Anyway I should pay another 70000AU$ for the next three years and half, and I know that I am asking a lot, especially because I am an adult and I really know what does mean work and earn money, but in this moment of my life I stuck, I’m getting depressed, I cannot sleep however, I’m still studying because I never lose my hope, but I really do not have anyone left that can help me, and if I will not pay, I will be withdraw from my degree, and I will be kicked out from Australia, and all time that I worked and studied here for my final goal, will be waste. Moreover, all my ship’s licences and certificates are expired last year, so I do not have a house a job in Italy, too. Everyone can help me, send me an email and one day I will give you back.
Hi! My name is Ivie, I’m 17, the oldest of 4 and a rising sophmore in the Univerisity of Pittsburgh. I was so proud and excited when I got into Pitt. After all, it’s another pivotal step out of the many that I have to take to get towards achieving my end goal of becoming a doctor someday. However, last year my family and I really struggled to pay its tuition. I hated watching my parents go through so much just to get me through the 1st year of school and I can’t bear to watch them do it for 3 more years. In addition, this year my grandmother has fallen really sick and so my family has ben saving up money to go visit and take csre of her. I honestly don’t see how my parents can cover my tuition this upcoming year with everything happening around us. Therefore, I have been super proactive this year so as to surprise my parents with a covered tuition or as close to that as I can get. I’m lucky enough to have been given 15,000 in scholarships which still blows my mind. Yet I still have to raise about that same amount to cover all costs. I currently have a summer job where I so far have made 1,000 to go towards my school fees. I must assure you, I am a very hard worker and very goal oriented. I hope one day to be able to impact the world and help others like I have seen others help me. I focus on my books and guarantee that I will graduate college and make it into medical school. I understand that everyone here donating has worked tirelessly for their money as I have seen my parents do the same. I just want to thank you for even taking the time to read this. I consider myself a very proud person at times who doesn’t always ask for help when its really needed but after seeing my parents struggle to help me achieve my goals when I know they’ve done more than enough for me, I put all pride or big headedness aside to help with the situation. I’m not asking for a large sum donation( although if I recieved one, it’ll be a hail Mary and a half) any amount will help from a dollar to a hundred. I just dont want my parents having to worry about me when they should be taking care of my siblings. Please, any amount helps and I can’t thank you guys enough. Please use the link www.PayPal.me/Ivie1 to send whatever you can. Once again, thank you!

My name is Christine, I’m 18 years old and I want first thank you for taking your time to read this, I wnat to go to college for Hairstyling and Esthetics. The only issue is that I can’t come up with the $20,000 for it. My parents are on ODSP (Ontario Disability Support Program) and at the end of every month, what’s left over from the cheque they get is $20, but most month there isnt any money left, and we struggle half the month with food because $500 for food between 3 people with 2 pets isnt enough, especially when my parents are always drinking and smoking cigarettes. I’ve tried for a job but I never get calls or emails back, at this point I’m thinking something is wrong with me, but I know my friend said once I complete Hairstyling and Esthetics college that she can get me a job at the salon she works at but until then I have no income or way to go to school. I can’t even go anywhere far from my house unless I am walking because I even struggle getting bus fare. I also would like help with this so I can get the job at the salon and move out so that I don’t live in the same house as my uncle who attempted to rape me more the 4 times. It has been dealt with but I don’t feel comfortable here, and none of my other family members want to help me. Please Help Me

I went to school fresh from getting my g.e.d and I just wasn’t ready, I fell behind and before I knew it they wouldn’t even except my appeal although I believe it was legit as I provided proof and all it still was denied. So today I have 3000 dollars worth of school dept and loans I need to pay although if I had that kind of money I would not be asking that’s for sure. I mean getting that allows paid would be nice but, I just am asking for half if even that just to get something paid so I will be able to get back into classes and go from there. I’m just trying to finally try and get it together as I am 23 and although that is young i have been through a lot. This money will just help out in so many ways cause once i can get my foot back in the door i see so many more options in my future. I just want a second chance. Www.PayPal.me/tiersalashe
Hello everyone, my name is Amanda and I’m 24 years old. I understand majority of everyone on here asking for money must really be in need and have their own stories, here is mine. I have not always made the best decisions, but i don’t regret any of them because at the time i thought that was the right thing for me. I am slowly starting to pick up the pieces of my life i left behind to complete the bigger picture of my future. Im really trying to get a car so I can get a better paying job since i currently work as a cook at a restaurant because its right by my apartment so it walking distance. I also want to go back to school and finish my bachelors in science, I dropped out after my 3rd year. The only thing holding me back is the money i owe the University from the semester I stopped attending classes. I do have a job, but i barely make enough money to pay my rent and utility bills, living in a college town is very expensive. I really am trying my very best to put my life together again but I feel like im stuck, i see everyone around me graduating and moving on to better things and im standing still. I just need someone to open the door for me a little so I can push my way through. I owe 3,000 to my university and I am trying to get a car worth anywhere from 3,000-5,000. Anything helps! I don’t know if its possible but if it is I can slowly pay you back. Thank you for taking your time and reading my story, have a great day.
