Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read. My name is Dan and I live in NH. I was sole care taker for my elderly parents for over twenty years. Needless to say it was almost a full time job caring for them. My parents did not drive there for I was taking them to doctor appointments, hospital, drug store, grocery shopping and any place they may have needed to go. I missed alot of work during that time and was relying on my credit cards alot. I ended up being about $20,000 in debt. It has been about ten years now and the debt just keeps snow balling. I am self employed and work has been almost none existent. Finding a regular 40 hour a week job is not an option seeing how I live in a real remote part of NH where there is not alot of work. This debt was accumulated before I met my wife and it is really a strain on our marriage. I feel bad that I am unable to help my wife with the household bills. What ever little work I have I use the money to pay my credit cards. My wife works seven days a week to try to pay the bills. I would be so grateful if there is someone kind enough to help me pay of my credit cards and have a new start at life.PLEASE, if you are able to help I would be so grateful. Thank you for reading. Take care and God bless
Bonjour, nous sommes 2 personnes âgées de 54 et 62 ans qui travaillent encore à deux emplois et malgré tout nous risquons de tout perdre.
Nous avons une maison que nous payons, un commerce que nous maintenons depuis plus de 9 ans maintenant, et ce malgré de multiples fraudes qui nous ont été faites. En plus des multiples problèmes avec la maison bâtie contenant plusieurs vice-cachés, nous avons aussi essuyé une perte énorme.
La plus grosse étant de 12,000$, aucune enquête sous la demande des criminels, nous n’avons pas pu entretenir la maison comme il se doit.
La moisissure commence à se former entre les murs où le problème est situé. Tout un côté de la maison doit être refait ainsi que la plomberie (qui est le vice caché), sans compter les surprises qui s’ensuivront.
N’ayant pas les moyens de faire réparer, nous perdrons bientôt tout moyen de récupérer notre demeure et les problèmes commenceront, affectant aussi le commerce, un de nos deux seuls revenus. Rejetés par les familles car nous sommes gays, nous auront une pension sur le Bien-Être Social, quelle belle perspective.
Aidez-nous S’il-vous-plaît, nous essayons d’obtenir de l’argent pour réparer la maison et ainsi pouvoir la vendre afin que nous puissions se loger dans plus petit et plus modeste. Les coûts seront aux alentours de 40,000$ alors toute aide sera grandement apprécié. Aidez deux personnes qui ont travaillé toute leur vie et n’ont aucune reconnaissance de leurs familles.
Hi, we are 2 aged citizens, 54 and 62 who works 2 jobs and still we might lose everything.
We have a house that we pay, a business that we now own for 9 years, and all this despite multiple frauds that happened to us. On top of this, multiple problems with the house built that has many hidden defects, and a huge loss.
The biggest loss was of 12,000$, no investigation on demand of the criminals, so we could not maintain the house has it should be.
Mold is forming in-between walls where the problem is. One side of the house has to be redone and so is the plumbing (the hidden defects), without thinking of the surprises that we will encounter.
Since we do not have the money to make the repairs, we will soon lose all means to recuperate our house and the problems will start, affecting also the business, one of our only two revenues. Rejected by families because we are gays, we will have our pension on Social Welfare, what a nice perspective.
Help us please, we are trying to get some money to repair the house and thus be able to sell it so that we can live in a smaller and more affordable place. The costs will be around 40,000$ so any help will be welcome. Help two person that have worked all their lives and have no gratitude from their families.
It is amazing to me how our minds have the capability of shutting things off so we can just push forward and move on. However, when we do this, we never really allow ourselves the time to heal and address what really happened to us. Of course our stories are a lot longer than what we tell, but in a nutshell… I met someone, moved away from my family and friends, and lived with a guy for 10 years. In the beginning everything was great, as it always is. We got engaged 5 years later. It seemed like from that moment on, everything went downhill from there. He became extremely controlling, telling me I had a drinking problem, and basically dictated everything in our relationship. We were in the process of planning our wedding when I decided things were not right with us, and I wanted to move back home. I packed up all my stuff, and went to visit my family to talk about what was going on, and he was supposed to send my stuff back. While I was visiting my family, he came to visit me and that’s when things happened, mentally and sexually. He played me like a fool. Convinced me that he loved me, wanted to have a family with me, and promised me nothing but the world. And of course, I fell for this, and I fell hard. I told him I wanted to see how things went for us when I was to move back at the end of the summer before we made any long term commitments. At that time he agreed and we ended up having sex together. He knew I was not on any type of birth control but when it came time, he REFUSED to get off of me, even while I was pushing him to get off. Then of course I got pregnant. It was at this time I decided I did not want a child to be the reason we got back together, and if things did not work out, I did not want to be the person who took a child away from their father. So as much as you agree or disagree with my decision, I decided not to keep the baby. It was after this that my brain became completely foggy and I pretty much shut off having my own thoughts. I was numb. My family told me over and over that he was bad for me, but of course I did not listen. Needless to say, 5 years later after I went back with him I came home to a note of him asking me to leave, on Valentine’s day. I call him and ask him to explain things to me, and why all of a sudden he had such a change of heart. Well, he had been playing with my mind this whole time. After he left his note, he apparently took off to be with his cousin. This woman was someone who I felt had way too much influence on our relationship. Later on I find out he was actually in a physical relationship with his cousin. YES…. You heard me, his COUSIN!!!!!! To this day I feel so disgusted with myself for being with someone who was into his own cousin. On top of that, I also found out while he was on business trips to China, he was sleeping with other women there as well. One of which he just recently married. All of this came to an end in 2014. But at the beginning of this year, it all came flooding back to me when he opened a DirecTV account using my SS#. I ended up filing a police report against him, and shutting off his cable and as soon as I did that, his true colors came out. I received numerous texts from him calling me out on every fault I ever had, as a person, as a girlfriend, and pretty much every insult he could possibly come up with. It wasn’t until this then, almost 4 years later, when I had to revisit him, and everything that happened between us. It wasn’t until then when I realized he had raped me and how I was in a completely abusive relationship both mentally and physically. When this all came back to me, I realized how messed up I was when I was with him and completely blind to what a terrible person he was. The difference now was, for the first time, I saw firsthand the type of manipulative, controlling person he really was. The hardest part was, it really messed me up, again. I became suicidal and started questioning everything about myself and the person I have become. And because I did not know how to address this, I vented by spending money. Of course, I blamed myself and thought over and over I should have seen this and been able to walk away and avoided all of it. But any one that has been in this situation understands how we lose ourselves and don’t know how bad it really is until we are removed from the situation. And when we do face these experiences, we don’t always deal with it in a healthy way. I never realized how much power this guy had over me, even after being away from him for a almost 4 years. Luckily, I had some people in my life, including my current boyfriend, who is beyond supportive and aware of everything I had gone through, and he is the reason I am still alive today, and helps me to believe in myself. I think one of the hardest things to go through as a woman in these types of situations, is especially when it happened by a man who I trusted and loved (or at least thought I loved). There is nothing more betraying than that!
Since all of this happened, unfortunately, I went through a period of time where I spent way more than I should have. Because of this, I now find myself in a financial bind, unable to keep up with rent, bills, and student loans. My car recently broke down which cost $3500. I would get a new car, but can’t afford any car payments. Because I am paying for everything I can, I barely have enough money to put gas in my car and buy food. I have looked into grants, financial assistance, etc., but I make enough money to not be considered “low income” so I do not qualify for any type of assistance. My only options were to get credit cards and personal loans to keep up with everything, which now, are flooding me with overdue emails. I don’t know what to do, or how to keep up with everything.
I currently work for the military. My boyfriend, who is active in the army, is the most amazing man in my life. We want to move in together, and start a family together. He has basically been helping me out as much as he can with paying for bills. But he is now at the point where he can’t help anymore. I just don’t know what else to do. We just need enough money to get us a little ahead, which is why I am reaching out to complete strangers for help. I am hoping, whoever you are, will find it in your hearts to donate just a small amount because every little bit helps. I thank you in advance, from the bottom of my heart!
I am 19 years old and estranged from my family. They kicked me out when I came out to them at 15. I have been on benefits since 16 and have finally gotten my own flat this year. I am a full time student studying Art at college. I can’t afford to pay for a carpet, curtains/blinds, furniture ect. After my bills I live off of about £30/week so I don’t have a lot of money to go out with my friends or buy anything which isn’t essential. I worry about running out of money for my gas meter.
I went to three carpet shops when I got my flat and they all said the cheapest would be £700 for underlay and carpet for the front room, hallway and bedroom. Blinds for the whole flat are £300 because the front room window is far wider than the drop and it needs to be custom made. I have been living here since June with neither. I would really appreciate a desk to do college work and a table and chairs to eat from as I currently just have a sofa and bed for sitting on.
Any amount of money would help. £2,000 would pay for everything I needed until I go to uni I’m October, although even if you donated £50 or a couple hundred to go towards bills/food/clothes I would really appreciate it.
It is really hard living alone but I’m doing my best to achieve the life I want :)
I won’t go into too many details about my upbringing and my subsequent adulthood, what I would like to say is that everything has been difficult from the get-go. To be honest, life has not been dreadfully difficult, but there has been very little joy in it. Days turn into weeks and weeks turn into years of monotonous struggling just to Simply scrape by and to Live Another Day. There are many deserving people in this world and my circumstances are not dire enough to be placed ahead of those who are in Greater need. However, I often see people blowing money on items that will just give them a few moments of enjoyment, perhaps an extended weekend, but that same sum would totally change my life. Because I live day today and paycheck-to-paycheck I have never really been able to get ahead. I take on loans to deal with car repairs, assisting family, or whatever is pressing at the time. I’ve been spend great amounts of time and resources trying to pay down those loans. So basically my plea is that if anybody intends to buy some frivolous item that would just simply hang on a wall or sit glass enclosure, I ask that you take that sum of money and bestow it on to me. What this will do is allow me to actually live life, to get some of the fruitage of joy that a man of modest means could have. I don’t want much, but I would like to try to get myself into a home and be able to pay my bills on time and finally not have looming debt and obligation at every turn. So if anyone out there wishes they had someone who could benefit from an inheritance or just a well-wisher who wants to give somebody who is a decent person an appreciated a leg up in life, I cannot even begin to tell you how grateful I would be.
Hello. My name is Ratholoana Marole. I’m a 27 year old citizen of the country Lesotho in the southern African region. I am a sole breadwinner in my family in which I live with my parents who are jobless. I at times work temporarily at small intern jobs. But currently I’m unemployed. I wrote this letter to you because I need a donation of $4600. This amount will cover my educational bills and debts that I will disclose in this letter. With its help, I can return to school and complete my final year of my Degree in Secondary Science Education. My parents have been unemployed since 2010. So I have had to take over the family finances since then through very little funding that I received from a restaurant job that I had. The job lasted from 2010 to 2016 when the restaurant closed down due to low cash flow because a mall was constructed in its neighborhood. Ever since the closure, I have struggled to live and go to school due to lack of funding. In response to that, I borrowed money from a friend who is not our country citizen. So at the moment he wants to go home, but I still owe him the $3600. He is demanding his money and thinks that I’m now an obstruction for his departure. He has to go to his home country Zambia using the funds that I owe him. If I fail to pay him by the end of February 2018, I’ll go to jail because I have nowhere to take that amount of money. So helping me pay him will be the best thing to happen for the both of us. The donation asked for is $4600. I have so far talked about only $3600. The remaining $1000 is going to help me get back to school by paying my tuition and accommodation fees. I will see where I will get my food and a few academic books. Helping me with those two will be my dream come true. I know that is a lot of money, but it’s worth asking for because my life depends on it. If I complete my education, I promise to support my family and help others like you will have helped me during this time of need. I’m deeply humbled by the chance that you have given me. Thank you in advance! Yours faithfully Ratholoana Marole PayPal information firstname.lastname@example.org
I am 51 years disabled I have diabetes and Aspergers Syndrome and everything has been a struggle for me my whole life. I spent my whole life living with family and helping them out. I have done the best I could and everyone in my family has made me so dependent on them that I had to get help to get away from them and get out on my own.
I have tried different jobs in my life but nothing seems to work out. I am trying to find a job where I can work at home and make some extra money. I get SSDI but it’s not enough to help pay for my other bills after paying for the rent on my apartment. I take survey and do some odd jobs for some extra cash but it’s not enough to pay for my bills either. My bills are stating to pile up. I have been out on my own for over a year because I couldn’t deal with my family controlling my every move and sticking there nose in my finances. My whole life they have made decisions for me and it has only made my life all that much harder. I will not go to them for help. They will only control my whole life again. I was and am getting along okay with out them I am just having some financial trouble right now. I am looking to get around $2,500 to $3,000 to help me out with bill and other living expenses. Anything anyone can give will be of a big help.
I’m a 28 year old disabled man. I have had spinal issues some caused at birth the other half due to an accident. I had my first spinal surgery at 17 to correct kyphosis (155 degree curve in the spine) I was fused from T3-L1. After that I returned to a fairly normal life there where always some things I couldn’t do that others my age could but I was happy. Finished a trade school and became a medical coder but it was hard to find work, so I took a job working on the docks. Around July I had an accident fell from 2.5 story’s and landed on a curb shattering my L3 vertebrae. Working a dead end job at the time I went to the ER with no insurance and I was told no worries it will heal itself we just need to stay ahead of the pain for awhile. A few months passed and I was allowed back to work but my employer felt I was I liability and I was let go. It all turned out for the best I started working in the field I spent so much time being certified for. Flash two years later As I climbed the ladder and made more money took a better paying job with a higher title I had a pain that wouldn’t go away. My primary refused to believe it was due to the accident and said it had to be my gallbladder since it can mimic back pain and I had acid reflux and some pain located near the gall bladder as well. So after every test imaginable I had it removed only to find that was no help. Finally I saw a specialist who in my first appointment found the issue the damage from my accident that was left untreated had grown the vertebrae (L3) had slowly started to break apart I lost a lot of the bone mass in it. We tried every avenue from physical therapy medications everything but none of them helped. Now I would need another surgery extending my fusion from T3-L1 to T3-L5 which I had done in August. While on leave the company I work for had all there secrets and lies exposed the government fined them millions shortly after they shut them down I lost all my coverage and my disability plan told me due to this being a preexisting condition they would not cover anything. I spent the next two years fighting for SSDI which back problems is the hardest case apparently since so many people lie. I finally won but my credit was destroyed I had to sell most all of my possessions but I was able to pay back all those who helped me in my time of need with my back pay check. Granted it left me living check to check enough to pay bills and get by but no more no less but at the end of the day it felt good to know I was able to repay the kindness the people in my life had shown me. Another year had passed and the pain was still just growing; at this point I was in pain management trying to reduce the pain enough to live somewhat of a normal life. Being a chronic pain patient you learn you will never be pain free but there are medicines that can at least lower the pain enough to give you back some part of a life. A week before thanksgiving I met with my surgeon to go over my new imaging that was done and I was told that two more vertebrae had fractured the hardware had come loose and the rods had snapped which meant another operation. This now my third spinal operation I am now fused from T3-S1 with two cages and all new hardware and rods. I’m only two weeks out my washer dies and my dryer which is older and has been on its last leg continues to have issues. Due to the amount of hardware in my back I am not able to bend which means I have to buy front load machines or I would not be able to get my laundry from one unit to the next. With it being the new year money is already tight I have a lot of dr apts and a lot of copays which means I have no extra money to fix the problem I’m facing currently not to mention the outrageous prices for a washer and dryer even at scratch and dent shops or refurbished shops. With worrying about healing and doing everything the drs tell me to do the last thing I need is to worry about not have clean clothes worst of it all due to the surgery I cannot travel unless nessisary for a couple months or drive which make the laundromats not possible at the moment.
My reason for requesting help is to replace my washer and dryer. I know this may seem trivial to so many but to me it’s just one more thing making my life difficult. I wish I had family or someone to turn to but it’s just me. Without help It will take me forever to be able to save enough to afford a new set which means wearing dirty clothes and having to depend on anyone who is willing to help by picking up my laundry (literally carrying since I have an 8 pound weight restriction for 6 months) and be willing to help me do it hoping they have a machine of their own since adding the cost of going to the laundry Matt weekly is too expensive. My biggest concern wearing dirty clothes against my surgical incision can cause an infection. Which could lead to another operation or other complications.
If I am able to receive any help at all even the smallest donations can add up and it would go a long way in alleviating some of the stress in my life. So I can go back to focusing on healing. I have never really done this before I’ve always been self sufficient so it’s not all that easy to publicly tell my story or my failure to make my life work but I’ve come to realize everyone goes through dark or hard times and we all need a little help now and then. Between the chronic pain and the added pain of surgery life is already a struggle making everything down to the littlest task difficult. It would mean the world to me to receive any help after everything else in my life has already become a challenge. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story I wish you the best and a happy new year!
Before I ask for your financial assistance I would like to say that I am aware there are a many other families experiencing the same financial hardship and if I was in a better financial position to help others I would. I want you to get to know a little about the type of person I am, our situation and the shortened version of how we got to this point in our lives that led me to ask for help. A little about me, I guess everyone around me would describe me as the person they count on, their “Rock” whether it’s the phone call in the middle of the night, a friend with a sick child, relationship advise, a shoulder to cry on, researching, filling out court papers, support, calling doctors, driving, repairs, directions, phone numbers, organizing, paying bills, running out in the middle of the night… to name a few, among a long list of other things for my family at home. My entire family comes to me to solve problems, get answers and take care of whatever is needed. I’m telling you this so you can get a sense for my character, seems it has become my life’s mission on making other people’s lives just a little less stressed. Until this point in my life I never stopped to realize how much I put myself aside to take on life events for others. That’s who I’ve always been and whom I will always be. I gain my happiness by taking on some of the stress and responsibilities of others. After many struggles and hardships of my own I finally found my soul mate in life. I have 2 boys and he has 2 girls, we fit perfectly. In 2016 a Florida case worker called and asked if we were willing to adopt my niece who was going through a hard time in her life, we agreed. We both had good jobs and still to this day a love that can’t be explained in words. We survived happy and in love through all the financial struggles of his divorce. We were paying the ex-wife 4,200 a month while still maintaining our own household. She took 25,000 from the bank and we handed her a 15,900 tax check. Staying strong, we continued to plan our lives together. Looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel where we once again dream and create our future built on family, love, laughter and memories. My husband had to file for bankruptcy and we started fresh, finally free of the financial burden. We both worked incredibly hard to rebuild credit, save and plan to purchase a home. In 2016 my mother became ill and needed to be taken care of so I left my job that I loved and started getting paid through the state to care for her at home. Last year aug 2016 my husband injured himself and needed knee surgery, he wasn’t able to recover because of his severe case of arthritis throughout his body (he has developed deformities) He basically walks on the side of his ankles and all of his joints are deforming. His 20+ career working on the high rise buildings had to end, as did our future savings through his career. Just as his unemployment ran out, I lost my job doing home healthcare (mom moved out to be with her sister) We were living on my unemployment check with 2 car payments, rent, house bills and 5 kids. Mom came back home to live with us and I started back at my job taking care of her, we filed for disability for my husband (that is at the end of a decision) but we struggle making all our payments. I receive 50+ calls a day from bill collectors; I need to file for bankruptcy to start over however we are unable to afford the attorney. I pray every day that I won’t be served with papers that I’m getting sued before I am able to file. BOTH of our vehicles are now up for repossession and we need vehicle city stickers and insurance we can’t afford because we are so behind in our house bills. I have worked out arrangements, sold our things and depleted our savings. We are in need of 6000 to save our vehicles from repossession, insurance, city sticker and bankruptcy attorney. Please help us with this small gain in a series of unfortunate circumstances. We owe it to our family to make a better life for us. Thank you, anything will be appreciated. http://paypal.me/Roxsy
Hi, my husband Scott Clark is a 100% disabled retired veteran. We have started a non-profit/public charity called EAGLENEST PROJECT INC where we are building barrack style living quarters for disabled homeless veterans. We are located in Princeton, In and the need is very high for this area. Please consider donating to our cause and help get our local heroes off the streets. We thank you for your time and consideration.
I’m a 100% disabled combat veteran,service-connected.I was just recently .got car jacked,I was pulled from my car and beaten&kicked within a inch of my life,they broke 5 ribs punched my lung ,broke my collar bone.and if that wasn’t bad enough .why i was in the hospital they went to my home with a moving truck,and took everything i owned.and then went to the dmv with forged paperwork and took possession of my car.and the craziest part of this is the police told me this is a civil matter,and that i would have to take them to civil court and sue them to get my car back!and that it is very unlikely that i’d ever get the stuff they took from my home. I’m not going to be able to take them to court,because i don’t have the money to do so.and if i did and won. they don’t have anything too win!im now living in a safe house through the va. with nothing but the clothes on my back.what I’m asking help with is money for a car.i have 7 to 8 appointments a month at the va. hospital.for my injuries & mental (ptsd) .i received in the military this is sooo-hard for me to ask for this help.i was trained to never ask for help. and do what i was told to do,to the best of my ability . and i still live my life this way.but two of my appointments are 200mi. away.and i am unable to make these appointments without a car,this is why I’m asking for 10000 dollars so that i can get a good sound car that will be able to make these appointment out of town and in town too.thank you very much and god bless
