Growing up in a small town can sometimes be a great aspect to life, but what many people are oblivious to is that many kids/adults aren’t following their dreams and throwing their lives away due to abusive relationships and abusing drugs. My dream has always been to become a millionaire and help out my hometown with growing a population and not only bringing business’ but also bringing a different kind of atmosphere to what can be a booming city. Torrington Wyoming is about an hour and 15 minutes north of Cheyenne Wyoming which is the states capital. Growing up in Wyoming has its perks but also its withdraws. Many adults and kids have not much to do so tend to disobey the law. We have a nice little community college and a sugar factory that is about to expire. My goal is to further expand not only Torrington but Wyoming itself. I know from self experience that my town has a drug problem, and we aren’t the only ones. Many people here are fanatics about music. Music is a way for the human body to feel normal and connected to something so precious that it’s indescribable. My first project is to bring a live studio to my hometown Torrington, Wyoming then expand with many more business’ to grow our economy. With coal slowing down many people are losing income and have no way to go anywhere. Many activity business’ such as ymca have been shot down not only in my area but all around Wyoming due to small economic growth in our small town. I would like to help the ones that struggle every day and feel better about themselves at the end of the day. I would like to get them and others off their feet and feel comfortable treating their family to a home cooked meal every night. I’m the type of person that would do anything to get my town more booming and less depressed. The struggle is forsaken because many feel embarrassed. By no means I am not embarrassed to ask for money to build jobs in my area and there is no specific amount that is too high. I ask this as a favor from our community. Thank you for your time and not only I but we would be glad to hear back from you. Many lives are at stake to change.
Please help me to reach my goal to become a biomedical researcher. My name is Natalee Westman and my passion is the human body and the unpredictable diseases that can struck the body. My goal is to become a very successful biomedical researcher, and to create a legacy to leave behind when my time is over. I want to cure diseases, discover new findings regarding diseases, and to educate people and engage young women and men to pursue the field of biomedicine. I hope that I, later in my career, will encourage many young women to become scientists.
But I need your help to make this possible. I am student at the University of Skövde, Sweden, where I last year got accepted to the University’s international Bachelor Biomedicine Programme. I got started in the fall of 2016. My road to getting accepted to this school has been far from easy. I have done a long personal journey, from being a scared, insecure child and teenager, to be a young woman who is proud of herself, and holding her head up high. As a child I was ashamed for not having the same possibilities as my friends and the children at school. But today, I am very proud of my parents who fought hard to put any type of food on the table, that never gave up. My childhood has taught me to never give up, and to fight for life.
I remember my childhood to be poor. At some times, it was not unusual to have just a piece of bread, or just a bowl of rice for dinner the last week before payday. This economic insecurity seems to has been inherited on to me as an adult. Four years ago, I started getting large debts due to a personal crisis. The crisis was, that I had recently moved to an apartment and my boss at that time called me and said that she was not going to need me at work that much in the future. I was devastated. I was working at a job where I was frequently bullied and ignored, but it was my job, it was my chance for an income. I remember my boss’s call even to this day. When we hung up, I got my first real panic attack, and since then I have had them coming on a daily basis. I got treated for my heavy panic attacks by my doctor with medication. Since I no longer had a steady income, I had to loan, and max credits to survive. This has lead to me having a total debt today of nearly 8000.00 USD. I am asking you, with all my heart, to help me with my debts, so that I can focus on becoming a successful biomedical researcher.
Help from parents has never been an option since my family has their own finances to worry about being low-educated and having very poor-paid jobs. I am the first ever in my family to go to college and to educate. I struggle to pay my debts off, and I often have panic attacks when I know that I this month too, will have to struggle just to get by financially. I have a dream to go to school, and being able to focus on just school.
Please help me with my dream!
PLEASE READ EVERYTHING. I am resorting to begging for money for hiring lawyers to help out with our situation since I can’t work more than two jobs. I have a wife ( whose in community college ) a two year old baby boy and a nine year old boy. I few years back my little brother was arrested along with his “so called friends” after coming back from a beach party. He was only seventeen and I would say for a lot of us, he really just wanted to be cool and agreed to ride with these guys in the back seat of the “friends” car. Again, he was only seventeen .The police found zig zag papers, and small plastic bags and charged everybody with having drug paraphenilia. He went to jail for it. After that, we were celebrating my grandparents 50th anniversary at my parents house when about 4 police knocked on my parents door. They said they were looking for someone whom they believed was residing at my parents house and showed my dad a picture of him. Of course my dad said they could come in and said we had nobody/nothing to hide. My parents came to this great country legally. After 25 years in process they both now have resident cards and my father just got his citizenship about eight months ago. Well, unfortunately my little brother was still in process and by the time we noticed HE WAS IN A PATROL CAR. I will never forget the look on my parents and grandparents’ faces. Everyone was crying and begging the police to please let him stay with us after all he had went to jail for having been in the car with his “friends”. The cop was very rude to my parents and told him they can visit him at immigration jail. For the next two weeks, my little brother was held there until a judge decided he was to be deported. My brother was brought over here when he was two years old and doesn’t know any spanish. So he has been living and begging on the streets of Mexico just to buy his meal from vendors for the day and sleep at a church at night. All because he doesn’t know anyone over there and you could imagine how lonely he feels. All of our family is here. And it tears me up inside whenever holidays or birthdays come around and I can never smile because I always think of him. I kind of blame myself for not urging him not to go with those guys that he should’ve instead hung out with me more. We need prayers as well. The more more prayers are sent, the better. I have spoken with about eight lawyers and the cheapest I found was eight thousand to handle this case. I set aside forty dollars a week because that’s all I can do. Please help us bring my little brother back to this country. He was just a kid. It has depressed my mother and I feel I cant do enough financially to help him and as a man it hurts

I am 22, student of Faculty of Law, University in Belgrade, Serbia. It passed 4 years, and my progress is terrible, actually I am stuck at second year of studies, (2 out of 4 basic degree). Social life, sport and everything else I had is sacrificed in hope I will finish the degree. Why I choose Law faculty? Well, I wasn’t thinking enough and I thought It will gonna be easy for me. It turned out everything is different – the law isn’t the profession for me. I don’t see my self as a lawyer or judge. Unfortunately, it turned out too late, after 4 years of wasting parents money. I lost my confidence, I have friends, girlfriend no more, I live life like an plant. The worst thing I did I lied my parents I’m on 3rd year of studies. No, I’m not. They know I repeated study year once, but not twice. And I didn’t tell anyone about that. I lied everyone. That is the main reason I have noone, nor friends nor girlfriend, because I’m affraid my parents will learn the truth. They gave me everything, and lost everything. The money they invested in my studying (taxes, rents, food) is equivalent to one good car, around 4000EUR and more. In Serbia, that’s a lot money. I entered into agreement with the devil and lied. It’s hard to live with that feeling. Everyone knows me as good, kind kid in my place, which isn’t liar. Sometimes I had suicidal thoughts, but that wouldn’t fix anything. I lie everyday, but still falling exams. I don’t know how to tell them that… Maybe if I change my life.
During the studies, at free time, I spent a lot of time in the front of computer. Making 3D models and rendering on slow PC from 2010 was something I loved too much. It was the only thing that made my days. Playing good playlist of dubstep mix and lets make some environment, house, map, landscape, spaceship, car or just super realistic text composed in the picture. After finishing, I would stare at my work, and think how I am amazing doing it. I was artist from the early childhood. I liked drawing and I was the best in that kind of art. Crazy ideas followed my creations. I had a lot of ideas for concept cars, bikes. I just had it in my head. Now you may ask yourself why I didn’t choose something else, like an art studies. In Serbia, studies of that kind are much expensive than a law studies.
I don’t need an degree to become perfect artist. Only I need is the will I have and tool I haven’t – in my case, the workstation laptop.
An good workstation costs from 1000-3000EUR and maybe more. I don’t need the most expensive laptop, but one usefull, average workstation. This is the only thing I need. I don’t need money for expensive software like Maya 3D, or 3Ds Max. I have open source software for free called Blender. I have 2 year experience with Blender – messing with the materials, textures, and 3D modeling is on my side.
I left playing with Blender cause of studies. Last year I moved in Belgrade (residence is 70km away from Belgrade) and rent an little house in hope the studies will be easier. I found part time job in kiosk. Weekly I work 4 days and earn 30-40EUR. This amount isn’t enough for buying even slower laptop (financing through hire purchase). Money I earn goes to rental, bills and food. Sometimes I can buy new pair of cheap t-shirt, trousers, but not shoes. And again, there is no results. I’m falling exams still. I don’t know what to do. What will parents look like when it comes the day I have to tell them the truth. They will renounce me.
But I think I can make it. Just I need good workstation. I will leave exams, and learn 3D modeling and rendering all allone, day and night. And then, possibilities are endless. I can become an non degree artist. I can make new account on freelancer (old named PROvisionBLEND – you can see my poor portfolio made with low end PC from 2010) and start making money, I can promote my work in town, I can find full time job working as 3D artist.
And if I do that – I know I will – I will bravely stand in front of my parents and tell them everything. I will show them I have an dream job, and money, which we got very hard before. And then they will forgive me, and I will help them to do everything they wanted but they couldn’t, cause of my fault.
So I am asking you for help. Donate to me 1000EUR and help me to change my life.
If you help me, I will buy an workstation laptop, I will take a shot of me with it in my hands, I will show you the future projects made on that laptop.
If you want, I can send you some proofs of payments for studies – all is recorded on my estudent account. I can send you any proof you want.
I will left my email and paypal adress
paypal adress paypal.me/BojanGTX
I can only hope for your help. If not, only God knows what will happend next to me and my life.
I wish you all the best!!!
Hi! First, I would like to say that I am not in desperate need and I am getting by with what I am doing today, but would like to request for any help that can be provided. The debt that I would like to request help for is to pay off my current debt, my wedding in July, and flights to attend my brother’s wedding in October!
A bit of background about me. I moved to Australia five years ago for work…I was originally only going to stay for 18 months, but I was very lucky and I fell in love with the love of my life. My future husband and I have been dating for four years and recently brought a little boy into the world! We are getting married this year and I would like so much to pay off all of my debt and start this new chapter of my life on the right foot. In addition, if I can pay off this debt then I can potentially work part time and spend more time with my new son versus having to spend a lot of time at day care.
Therefore, one of the things I would like to do is pay off all of my debt in the US, which include credit card debt ($15,000) and my school loans ($20,000). My school loans were used to help me improve my education in Business Administration and I have just never gotten on top of this debt…I’ve been paying it for 12 years now and have paid almost half of this debt, but it just seems to be never ending. To pay off this debt would be a huge weight off my shoulders! In addition to the school loans unfortunately I have credit card debt. This credit card debt is mainly due to the trips I made to the US to visit family and friends. I couldn’t really afford it, but missed them so much so I made the mistake of using my credit card. I would like to pay off this debt in the US so I can focus on my new life in Australia with my to be husband, newborn son, and my step daughter.
In addition to my debt we are getting married in July and therefore need additional funds to help pay for the wedding of approximately $5,000. We want to make this day special and therefore would like to have these additional funds to help add a few things to the wedding such as photography, gifts for our guests, and other little items to make this day the best. The photo in this post is the location of where we will be getting married.
Lastly, I would like to travel back to the US for my brother’s wedding in Baltimore, MD and a trip for four is approximately $4,700 from Australia. I really want to be there for my brother on his special day and would like to bring my family to the USA to see where I’m from.
Thank you for taking the time to read this! I hope that you donate, but if you cannot not I understand. If you can donate any donation you can give is appreciated. Thanks again for all of your help!
I am a 100% disabled veteran and have been unable to maintain steady employment since my discharge from the USMC 25 years ago. As of May of 2016 I finally got my life together and have been able to maintain full-time employment.
Because of this inability to maintain steady employment, I have amassed insurmountable debt. I am in my late forties and will never be able to pay off what I owe before I reach retirement age. I have debt from going to University, debt from living on credit over the last 25 years, car debt, and housing debt.
In 2015 I graduated with a degree in counseling and with that I was able to secure the job of my dreams. I work with the seriously mental ill and not only do I help them I believe this job may have saved my life. I have found a purpose and meaning that helps me feel invigorated.
I do not expect to receive the total of what I owe. I have dug my hole and I will work on getting out of it but any help would be much appreciated.
I have over $60,000.00 in debt related to my degree from the University. I have another $30,000.00 in unsecured debts. I also have an embarrassing amount of auto debt nearly $50,000.00 in car leases so I cannot even sell back, I cannot even pay it off early if I had the money. However if I had the money in the bank this would a way of making me less nervous about finances, in the unlikely event I am unable to work again due to my disability. The amount of the debt, that must be repaid, is approximately $140,000.00. That would be the amount I would really appreciate receiving funds to pay down.
There is also the amount of monthly bills that I will have no matter what. I live where the rent/mortgages are very high, then the cost of utilities, groceries, gas, maintenance of the property whether owned or rented, and misc. bills that come up randomly. Monthly bills are; housing payments $2300, groceries $1000.00, gas for vehicles $250.00 – $400.00 depending on travel needed for work, utilities $250.00 – $600.00 depending on the weather, upkeep on a property needs to be budgeted for even if not used for around $250.00 a month for emergencies, $450.00 1st car payment, $325.00 2nd car, $660.00 1st unsecured debt, $250.00 2nd unsecured debt, and $333.00 budgeted for student loans. This total is $6568.00 average per month taking most of our paycheck without servicing anything more than the bare minimums on our debt, but we are not getting ahead because we are so far behind. This takes up our salary and my disability payment
Hello , my name is Dan and I live in London, I am not disabled and I do not have any sick member in my family . In fact the only family what I still have is my girlfriend. I am working around 80 hours a week , yes you read it well 80 I can prove that with my working routa . The reason why I need financial support is because I done a lot of mistakes when I first come to U.K. and now I try to slowly sort them out . I used to have almost 6000 pounds debts but I reduced them to only 2000 by hard working and pushing myself to the edge of my physical limit . I feel that I can’tell do it anymore without badly harming my body and also I know that if I will get sick I will be in the position of depending on others . Now I am looking after others because my job is to be a carer for disabled people and I do not want to get to the point where I need carers myself for money . Is only my fault for my situation I was addicted to gambling and I am really proud to say was addicted not I am addicted , but still I need a bit of pushing from others to be able to quit some working hours and be able to look after myself and chase my dreams . All what I need is 2000 pound is big money of course but maybe some of you can help me with that . For me to cover this money means at least 4-5 months of killing myself . I know I have the power to cope with the situation alone I already done it for 1 year but sometimes is giving you more faith in humanity and in all what is good to receive some help when you really need it . Thank you all for reading my message and I promise one thing reggardles of how much support I will reactive I will be better soon and I will always help and treasure any human been in need .
hi, bit about my life. got married at 17 and had a baby boy, but then my husband got abusive towards me. stay in the relationship for about 10 years till i had the courage to leave him. then i met an older guy who i thought was my night in shinning Armour. unfortunately he controlled me i.e keeping money from me taking my independence from me. then his mum died and he became distant from me, never at home, found out he was cheating on me. he left me with so much debt, slowly paying things back . then i found someone who had also been in an abusive relationship and was cheated on too. we married 3 years ago . he is a wonderful man with 3 children ages from 10-15 years old. he pays 400 per month and we have them every weekend which is lovely to have them. we both work full time but i would like to start fresh with no debt . my past always is here i just want to be free and learn to start living . but i do feel that i am luckily in life as i meet a guy who proves to me that nice good guys exists. and have a lovely son in his late 20 and 3 wonderful step children. Im 45 years old now and feel at peace with everything now. i understand if you dont donate as i know their are more deserving people who need it more than i do. anyway thank you for your time.
I am a 23 year old student who feels that the world is in desperate need for change in many ways. The sad thing is that many people feel this way and they are stuck in positions in life unusually stemming from financial problems and limited resources that keep them from exploring the full potential of their creativity and ingenuity for a better world for all. With that being said I am currently working on my goals to become an aerospace engineer and space physicist with a master degree in both at the esteemed Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Similar to what situations others who desperately wish to achieve there full potential, I have not been able to move forward in achieving my goals as I work 50 hours a week simply for living expenses and have no where near the amount of money required for tuition. I have been accepted by the school however I do not have wealthy family who can help me pay my way. The school does offer scholarship programs and grants however the cost of tuition room and board still far exceed the funds I could earn from these. (an Average of about $50,000 a year) As Embry-Riddle has very high academic success rates and academic standards the class schedules are a bit more rigorous and not nearly as flexible as a standard Community College or even a many Universities. There is great difficulty in the prospect of paying my way through college through a part time job as even my current overtime employment would not be sufficient.
I’m 45 years old, the last child of my parents. I use to be a Police Officer until I resigned and became the primary caregiver for my mom who has Alzheimer’s. I love caring for her however with each passing day things get a little bit harder as the disease progresses. Lately I have been getting impatient and irritated for the slightest things, is like I’m falling apart. Little things that never bothered me are beginning to really get to me. At times I am scared at my own reaction to things, (I’m verbally abusive sometimes, I guess over 8 years of being a primary caregiver has began to take its tole on me, or maybe it’s the fact that I get very little or no help, anyway the thing is that I’m afraid that one day I might become physically abusive too, and the thought of this scares me, hence the reason I’m soliciting your assistance, in the hopes of getting the help and rest any primary caregiver needs.)
As a result of leaving work before time, I’m not getting any benefits. My last salary was $7,577. TT ($1,114. US) monthly. I now get $2,200. TT ($324. US) monthly, (from family, I only started getting this a couple years ago, before this I was getting by on the savings I had).
My sister asked to move back home for a little while, (10 years ago). She and her children does nothing but create more work for me. If I don’t do what has and needs to be done, sweep, cut or spray the grass, take the garbage out, etc. it won’t get done. THEY DON’T EVEN HELP WITH MOM. I go to bed tired and awake even more tired. They would slam the doors, talk and have their music playing loud, even at nights, and don’t tell them anything because they vex more than me. I need to be able to sleep, to know that when I secure the place, it remains that way, so that mom won’t walk away again after 10 pm because “MR NO BODY” unlock the door and didn’t lock it back. My physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health are being negatively affected.
I use to do farming, but that’s impossible now as mom requires more supervision. I would love to get back into it, this way in 6 months time, by GODS grace, I could become self sufficient again and also start saving towards my ultimate goal which is to build an activity centre for my mom and others in my community with dementia.
I’m seeking financial assistance of $135,000.USD to do the following :-
(1), Pay a caregiver to come in and help with mom, ($1,500.) monthly, for 6 months, ($9,000.).
(2), Build a 16ft × 16ft garden shed on poles so that the top floor could accommodate me and mom, and the ground floor the shed, ($32,000).
(3), Buy garden supplies and equipments, fence and get the land (10 aces) prepared for planting, ($55,000).
(4), Pay 3 assistants to help with the farming, ($4,000.) monthly, for 6 months, ($24,000).
(5), Buy a used 4WD vehicle to use on the farm ($15,000).
Thanks for your time in reading and considering my request, I know that there are lots of request for assistance and mines may not be as urgent as the others therefore you may not help and that’s understandable. It is with this in mind I make the following two simple request :-
1, Donate $1 to help me.
2, Share my request with all you know.
Blessings to you and yours always, and please pray for me.
PS. It would be a great luxury for me if I could afford the time to recuperate whenever I get ill, now that’s just a dreams.
Hello. My name is Pauline and I’m an ordinary person who has a lifelong dream. The dream is to have my own home. I don’t need a big house. A one-room apartment, with a window and a door, will be enough. Yet this desire is something unrealizable for me.
I currently live with my family which consists of four persons in an apartment with three small rooms (one of this rooms is a living room, because it is located right in front of the entrance door). My younger brother and I occupy one of the rooms. That is not very convenient actually. My brother is still a child but he is growing fast and soon he’ll become a teenager. He would need a private space. But it won’t be achieved in our situation. My parents work a lot, but all the money goes to pay the bills and to provide basic needs. They work for our good, and I can’t ask them for more.
As for me, I’m an ordinary student. It’s difficult to find a regular job due to the inconvenient schedule of classes and lack of qualifications. I am doing my best. But this is not enough. I need to pay tuition fees, so money that I get are spent on it.
Sometimes it seems to me that I can’t fulfill my dream (or I’ll be able to implement it after a very, very many years…). However I’m trying not to lose my spirit and to strive towards my goal in spite of everything.
Every person has a dream. Someone has strength and opportunity to carry it out, while someone needs help to do it. At this moment some people need support to continue their work and to know that their efforts were not in vain. Now I also need it.
I do not ask for too much. I will be grateful to any amount, and any words of support сan help me to get the courage up. I will know that there are people who really believe in me.
Let your dreams always come true. Yours sincerely, Pauline.

My wish is for my husband whom I love fiercely. I would like for him to be able to pay his $6,000 debt and to have a new van that we can use for our business. We want to be together always.
My husband’s name is Oscar and he is the most honorable man I have ever known. A man like him is very rare and I am very lucky to have him. He was once a pharmaceutical manager and his colleagues know him as a fair, kind man who is generous in teaching and sharing his knowledge. He worked for a big phramaceutical company for twenty years and always treated his work like a child he nurtured. He was genuinely favored by the CEO because of this, and also very much envied by some brown nosers.
One day, a brown noser made an issue that got my husband fired after twenty long years of loyal service. Saying he was devastated is a huge understatement. I actually thought I was going to lose him then, as he was so depressed. The saddest thing I ever heard my husband utter was, “I have no pride left.”
In his late forties, he began applying for entry level jobs that gave him very low pay. His current wage is less than $400 a month. Mine is about $200, which we budget for groceries and paying off bills. We’re having a very difficult time paying off his debts.
But my husband is a man of honor. He will pay his debts no matter what, and so we work and we work. But as the years progress, I find myself getting more and more sickly and I am very afraid.
We used to have some savings for when he was working at the pharma company, but we spent it paying for my mother’s medical bills. She was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, which she got from a blood transfusion a long time ago. He used all his savings to save my mother, and so I want to return the favor.
We have this dream of owning a new van and converting it to a service van. That way, we can always be together even at work. We have been surrounded by so many sickness and deaths lately, and I know we are not getting any younger. We don’t have children who will help us when we grow old or a pension we can rely on. We only have each other, and hopefully, the generosity of strangers now reading our story.
Each person has their story to tell and I thank you for reading ours. I don’t know if I’ll be able to repay you for helping us, but be sure that I will be paying it forward. Bless you for your kindness.
My name is Steve. 4 years ago I went on holiday to Thailand and met a girl called Jen. We got on immediately and to cut a long story short within 6 months of meeting we got married and I adopted her two young daughters. At the time I was reasonably financially secure and the future looked bright.
We planned, at the time of getting married, to work together such that she and the children would come and live with me in the UK where I had a good job and a reasonable income. This plan was quickly halted by the UK Immigration Department though when they refused to grant her a visa. We have since re-applied every year but unfortunately our requests have on each occasion been met with the same response – all her visa applications have been refused.
I am a hard working, proud, honest person and pride myself on being kind to others, true to myself and true to my word so I have remained determined to support my family no matter what and find a way that we can be together every day. When the 2nd visa application was refused, I resolved myself to the fact that I needed to find a way to earn a location independent income such that I could go and live in Thailand with my family. Over the last 2 – 3 years I have spent literally hundreds of hours and pounds learning about internet-based work and income opportunities and trying to attain the skills required but despite all my commitment it hasn’t worked. My website/s have, unfortunately, not provided the income I hoped for. I have also applied for many jobs in the Asia-Pacific region but each application has been unsuccessful.
In the meantime, I have continued to support my family but the cost of supporting them in Thailand and myself in Europe (so I can continue to work in my full time job) has proved in excess of what I earn and I have gradually slipped deeper and deeper into debt. Initially I told myself it would be ok. You have to spend money to make money, right? Once my website/s started making money I could pay back my debts and then emigrate but that seems like it will never happen now.
I don’t know what to do now. I have worked and tried so hard but things just seem to go from challenging to impossible for me. I’m a hard working person and the thought of not working for a living is beyond me but I am so desperate now because I don’t know what to do to fix the situation. I also don’t know where to turn for the help, guidance and education I need such that I can find a way to be with my family. I want to take my kids to school every day, to help them with their homework and tuck them into bed at night. I want to wake up and go the sleep with my wife everyday – to be there for her.
I’m imprisoned in the UK by my debts now, which have reached a level that seems insurmountable at £60,000. I am losing all hope so fast because I see no way that I can pay back my debts and get enough money to go and start a tangible business in Northern Thailand so I can live there with my family. I love my family so much and I just want to be with them.
I pray for inspiration, help, assistance every day. I keep working hard, hoping for a break-through but I’m going backwards fast. Despite all my efforts I have now realised that I need some help from someone if I am to have any hope of changing my situation. I have no one I can ask for help. No family to speak of that can assist me. The life I want is a humble, simple one. I don’t know what else I can do to achieve it though. I don’t know how I free myself of the debt so I can start again.
I just want to work hard, earn a reasonable living and be with my family in Northern Thailand. Please help me if you can.
I have been out of work and not by choice. It is hard to ask for help, I have all ways been a giver not a taker. I took care of most of my family for almost 2 years and asked nothing in return at all. then when I was frauded out of a company my wife and I built in less than 2 years that left us broke and have lost all most every thing. I even bought the few acres my mother owned out of bank rupt court she had promised to quick deed me the landwell that did not happen and it hurts bad I’m just about ready to give up on life and take my own, but I have a 15 year old son and that would damage him for life. I have asked my whole family for help not to give me but just a loan and all they have for me is excuses. A lot of people ask for just money to get by. but not me ,my dream is to get as much as I can so I can help others, children from broken homes because thats what I came from and I was beat by mother father step mother and step father. I started running away at a very early age and was scared all the time. My dream is to get as much land as possible so I can build safe places for the abused ,kids elderly vets just any one that needs help. I know I can help most of these unfortunate just by telling them the true stories that I have been through and the addicts also ,I would love to teach them about life and there is all ways hope and a way out of any situation and not to give up on their dreams because dreams can come true. I have no pics. to upload but you can check my face book page out and contact me I have allways stood up for the under dog and never let any one be bullied because words do more damage than sticks , I do not have a racist bone in my body and love all. I think I was born a 100 years to late because this world is full of so muck pain, but i’m ready to stick around and help others after all that is my dream and some how some way my dream will come true. If there is any way any one could help I would be great full and a humbled man so please if any one can help me make this dream come true please do you will be pleased with what I will do and the books will all ways be open to any one donor or not, please check out my face book page. I will keep every one updated and every one is welcome. Thank any one that has taken their time to read this for it comes from my heart and soul, there is so much hurt in this world and if I can ease any ones pain just a little that would be the greatest thing in my life to see a lost or abused soul smile. Thank You Raymond David Jacques JR. 570 Davis Spur Hope Hull Alabama 36043.
This is my dad when he was younger. If I had a million dollars I could help him. He lost his house last year and lives with his cousin in a small cramped space where he can hardly have anything for himself.
If I had a million dollars I’d buy us a small apartment where I could help him. He had knee surgery a few years ago and they never healed properly for him, so I want to take care of him.
If I had a million dollars I could get health insurance and figure out what’s wrong with me. I had to drop out of college because I’d end up sick with these horrible cramps that leave me bed ridden for a few days almost once a week.
If I had a million dollars I could buy my dad a car so he can get around. Not a fancy care, just one that I know won’t break within the first year it’s purchased.
If I had a million dollars I’d go to an online college and do something I know I’m decent enough to use it as a job, that way if I get sick I can still do something from home and not risk getting others sick.
If I had a million dollars I wouldn’t spend it on a big house, or a fancy car. I wouldn’t blow it on a bunch of things that people have a habit of buying. I just want to help my dad. I just want to get better and do something with my life so that maybe I can feel less useless than I do now.
If I had a million dollars, I’d try to make someone happy. That’s all I’ve ever wanted, but have been to much of a fuck up to do.
I know there’s a chance no one will read this and maybe it won’t get anywhere. But I want to try. I don’t know what to do in order to help him when I’m so useless.
Many people that I have heard about this year have had it bad. I used to look at these stories and wondered how these thing could happen. I now know that it is not something that only happens to a select few, it can happen to anyone myself included. My stepson and I were living in an apartment on the southside of Chicago in a two bedroom unit. When we moved in, the place was in substandard condition. This was an emergency move because my last landlord’s property had gone into foreclosure. Anyway, we were given a moving allotment of which I applied the majority of towards rent for the year. The remainder was used to remodel the unit to make it comfortable for us to live in, I did all of the work myself and in the end the landlord was using my unit as a model when he decided to sell the property. When I informed him that I would be moving out three month prior to the anticipated date( March 2016) I expected him to return my deposit on moving day. To my dismay on moving day he informed me that he was not going to return my deposit and instead went on vacation to Jamaica for a month. Upon his return he filed an eviction suit against me for failure to pay rent, and sued me for an additional $2660.00. We ended up homeless.
In April I had gone to visit my son at his temporary residence for a wellness check when it was time for me to return to my transient residence I was nearly killed by a hit and run driver. I was hospitalized for a time and lost my job. I had to take leave from school (Argosy University) and accrued more debt ($3120.00) because I had to drop my classes.
I was able to enter into a payment plan agreement which allowed me to get back into school and I also found a new residence for myself and my son in a better part of the city. At this point I thought things were looking up. I also found a job that would just cover the monthly bills when bam, I try to have my utilities turned on and discover that I have been the victim of identity fraud. Someone had used my identity to have gas service turned on in their residence under my name ($874.67), so we have the apartment and no heat or cooking gas. My stress level has reached it’s max point by this time. To end this year on November 20, 2016, I end -up at Little Company of Mary Hospital (Chicago)because I need heart surgery. I have lost another job because I am not allowed to return to work, so the bills are steadily piling up again.
All I want is someone to be kind enough to help me get back on a financial even keel so that I can focus on my health and get my life back on track.
Hi and thank you for taking the time to read this!!…basically I had a great job and life…took it for granted, and then lost everything. I lost my job and then as a result had to sell everything to get by. I suffer from depression which one reason I lost my job…but that’s not important. I need a nice computer to work and find work, do every day things with… that’s the most important thing for me. But if you want to give me more so that I can have a better life unto I can get back on my feet, I would love you forever! And when I do and get to the point where I can i afford it, I would donate money to help others. Which is something I already did when I made good money…
And I know that may worry I’ll just spend it on drugs or alcohol but I can honestly till you that I won’t…im very much against the use of drugs and I have acid refex disease so I can’t drink alcohol. But again thank you again for your time. And by the way, that’s my buddy “Sam” in the picture with me…he’s been loyal with me Thur thick and thin.
I have a dream. I would love to make others happy. My dream is to make other people happy. I always wanted to do something nice to people around me. I am still young (just turned 20), but I understand that human needs someone trustworthy and open-minded. I consider myself perfect for listening and people always know, that they can trust me. I want to bring joy, happiness, peace in this world, but, as always, money is in the way. I try as I can to make my dream happen, but now I need your help… It is hard to ask others for help, and this is really hard for me. I don’t feel comfortable asking for money… But I hope you will understand.
I finished high school and went learning as nail professional (manicure, pedicure, spa mani-pedi) but I don’t have enough money to buy supplements, rent a place to work. I now work as baby-sitter and my income is really small. But I want to make others feel special. I want to make them feel peace, because our lives are too stressful already. I want to do this and want to go and study psychology and get those degrees and continue do nails and be psychologist. You may ask, why didn’t I go study psychology but nail care. I tried, but I didn’t have enough money for studies and couldn’t take loan because of my countries policy. I went learn more about nail care. I always did my grandparent nails, because they couldn’t do that themselves. Looking back now, I am grateful to them because they were my first clients and that makes them more special, because they trusted and believed in me. Before I started as nail professional, I thought that this profession is really close to psychologist, because when someone comes and wants their nails done, they start to open about themselves and they need a good listener, sometimes just to find their own peace about sad or difficult situations in their life.
I believe that I can help others and I believe that there are others, who can help me to help others, help me to fulfil my dream. I hope that I will be able to do this, study psychology and do nails, help other people find peace they need, relaxation they deserve. I believe that every human deserves a place where they can regenerate their energy, and I want to give that to them.
I am here as a final resort in my (nearly expired and failed) quest to seek financial support for my two of my children. Both of which play the baritone (quite well) in their middle school band. The group of kids that make up this band have been continuously focused and 100% dedicated in being good enough to travel to Florida and perform on Walt Disney World’s stage. They succeeded in their goal, and now the band is making that trip together in January 2017. Only the cost causes me to come to a screaching halt and be forced to let down my children’s whole world. I had to tell them they could not go. This is out only hope in reversing that outcome. Plase consider helping me help them. We would be forever grateful. If just the two of them go, it will be 1500$. If I want to go with them it will be 2000$ all together. I would like to be able to go, mostly because they will be gone for 5 days, and that will drive me crazy.
I jwant them to be able to go on the trip that they worked so hard to prove to be good enough for. It is hard for me to see them know they can’t go because I don’t make enough money, but when I sit back and see the disappointment on their faces knowing that I do all I can with what I have and it really is never quite enough is worse than a sucker-punch in the kidney.
I want them to feel like they aren’t good enough as the other kids in their class because we can’t afford it. I don’t want them dropping out of what they love because they can’t do things like that as the group they belong in. I don’t want them feeling like they did all that work for nothing.
There are so many reasons why they deserve to go, and only one reason why they can’t, and this is the only suggestion I came up with to at least make an effort to allow them to go. I don’t like asking anyone for help, I mean even their own dad has never helped with a single thing in all of these years, but right now, I am asking for them.
They need our family and friends to come together and help them along this challenging road to Disney World. I believe everyone needs help from someone at some point in their life. We are in a really tough spot and need some support from friends and family right now.
I believe that God find the help they need to pay for this trip. He knows how special they are. Despite the lousy life they were dealt they still have managed to excel in school with great grades. While at the same time, they taken time from the typical kid life to not only go to church 2 days out of the week willingly to serve God, but also to learn, practice, and become great enough musicians to play on Walt Disney’s stage. They have continued to do their part, but unfortunately life happened to get in their way, which is not fair to them in any way.
I don’t want them to be left out simply because they don’t have enough money to attend. Let’s show them what it looks like to keep faith and not give up on what we want to achieve, even during challenging times we can still make it when family and friends come together and support a good cause a little bit at a time. Please pitch in anything you can, and help send these babies to Disney with their classmates. Remember, anything helps!! Even if you can’t donate money, please keep passing the fundraiser along. There may be others who are able to help somewhere. We appreciate all of it. I want to thank you all in advance for your help. Help spread the word!
My name is Jenn and for the past few years, I’ve had an urge to follow my dreams that only gets stronger each day. I’ve always worked hard for what was “expected” of me—I always did quite well in school and received both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in a field I’ve been working in since I was 19. Throughout college and grad school, I often worked full-time in addition to maxing out my credits, because I liked being busy and felt I needed the work experience for a successful life. But lately, working a 9 to 5 has left me wanting more. Even though I enjoy the work I do, I find myself sitting in my cubicle daydreaming about being anywhere else. Day after day, 40 hours a week.
What I daydream about is traveling full-time. Since I was 19, I’ve worked harder than most of my peers (at my day job in addition to school, freelancing, babysitting and a social life) and all of this work made it possible for me to save up for my travels. I’ve paid my way through 6 continents and 25 countries in the last 5-6 years. I’m aware that makes me luckier than most, but it’s not for lack of long hours and hard work. But I find myself being addicted to travel Instagram accounts, watching hours and hours of YouTubers (like yourself) documenting what makes them happy, and researching future travels. So now, at 25, my next adventure is to do a round-the-world trip. I’m not 100% where I’ll end up (but I have a long list of places I dream of everyday) or how long this adventure will last, but I’ve decided that it’s time to stop living the dream everyone tells me is correct. I plan to document my trip with regular blogs or videos (or both).
I might be young, but my travels up until this point have educated me to what else is out there in the world, and that’s where I want to be. I want to teach English, aide in the rescue and protection of animals, help set up schools, help build homes, deliver clean drinking water and supplies—I want to make the world a better place with any small contribution I can manage. But this will not come cheap and I’m already pinching my pennies wherever possible. Any donations would go to travel (flights/trains/etc.), accomodations, food, and spending money. I’m not quite sure when the trip will be, as it depends on how quickly I can fund it. (The sooner the better!) If there’s any chance you’d be willing to contribute $5, $10, or even $20 to helping someone achieve their dreams, I’d be so grateful. If not, thanks for taking the time to ready my story and have a great day!
Hi my name is Paz I am 33 years old I’m married to Charles 44 and we have 2 girls 5 and 7, my husband and I loved each other very much when we met we knew that it was gonna be hard, we didn’t had much, him because of a bad divorce where she cheated on him and was poisoning him (literally) and still left him with almost nothing, then was when I met him I was just escaping from a really bad, abusive, and frankly sick relationship (I fell attached to the man that lure me when I was only 14) he made me believe that all that he did to me was because he loved me. Despite that my husband has been my rock, he always worked so very hard, when we had our first we were living only in a shared flat bedroom, we didn’t gave up we saw the opportunity to move so we did, a rented flat for ourselves, then I fell pregnant again, we had so many problems there, I was threatened by a random man, the car was broken into like 4 times, they try come in while I was alone with my daughter, I suppose that all of this situations plus the immense work stress (he used to work from 4am till 6pm), added up so much that one night he just ended having a heart attack,thankfully we reacted in time so he was saved now he has a stent, but he still never gave up, but his boss thought otherwise and decided that he couldn’t do the job anymore so he let him go after 25 years of service he didn’t even care, after some time my littlest one was 2 I had a check up and they found that I had very early stages of cervical cancer we had to do many things to overcome that with him not working, the girls growing not having help to look after them while I was working or him looking for jobs, not enough money coming in so many things to do, to pay to buy,a hole opening right under my feet.
But I have been clear for almost a year and a half now, my husband is working hard as am I but is never enough we haven’t had the opportunity to give our girls one of the most important things in life, security that they will have a roof over their heads forever, we are living in a flat where they have to share their bedroom and the space is so limited, I would love to give them a house with a garden, so they can play out there and not being restricted up here with the neighbours complaining about it, or somewhere where despite being tired after a days work they can still enjoy the outdoors without me having to deny this to them because of my physical and mental tiredness. To everyone out there thank you for your support.
I am a retired Sheriff’s Deputy. My son has autism and our story begins here. In 2007, I was a successful Detective Sgt. with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office. Married with two wonderful children. My son was diagnosed as autistic and could not stay in school due to behavioral problems. We are from Louisiana where the educational system does not provide for these types of disorders. We tried public schools, private schools and home schooling to no avail.
I found myself having to make the most difficult decision of my life. Leave my career and find the best help for my son or stay in Louisiana and give up on him as many people suggested. We were told he would never graduate school or have a normal life. After praying on this, God told me to do what was best for Christopher. We decided to move to Washington State where the schools and doctors were well versed in autism. It wasn’t easy. I spent my entire retirement on moving to Washinton to give him the best possible chance at an education. He recently graduated from High School at the age of twenty.
During this time, my years of abuse to my body due to Law Enforcement caught up with me and after numerous surgeries I have been unable to work. I will receive $1,100 a month from SSDI which may cover my day to day bills in January of 2016.
My ideal retirement has come and gone. I know I did the right thing and would do it over again. However, I can no longer do the things normal people do when they retire. Work in a garden, play golf, or any other sport, or hobbies that require too much effort. I have found that I can manage to operate a large boat with a cabin to rest for fishing and camping in the San Juan islands. I cannot hike or set up camp so a cabin boat would be my ideal retirement hobby.
Unfortunately, I have more medical bills than I could ever repay. Approximately $30,000 dollars. And I could never afford a cabin type boat. We, my wife, my son, and I live in a 100 year old house that is in constant need of repairs.
We are happy but to do things together we could use a little, actually a lot of financial help.
I dedicated my life to serving others, even got my counciling certification while in Washington but after three years could no longer travel to help those in need.
I am simply asking for money. I know others who need the money more than I but I am willing to ask as I have no other resources to obtain this type of money.
If it is God’s will that this is a success, then I will pay it forward by helping others in my situation at least get to tour the islands and enjoy some of the wonderful things Washington has to offer.
May God bless you whether you donate or not.
I am a 48 year old Autistic Man and I am living temporarily in my sisters house with my best cat friend Mr. Baby. I have always wanted a small home of my own to live in. But every job I ever get never seems to help me reach my dream. The last job was in a fine restaurant in Spokane, but after the Chef told the employee that was training me that I was autistic she started mocking me and harassing me every day for over six months, until I had to walk out, as I was tired of crying at work. My unemployment claim was denied and faced with homelessness my sister had a plane ticket for Mr. Baby and me and has put us in a little house in the middle of nowhere. The problem with being in the middle of fields of corn is that there are no jobs nearby. I cannot learn to drive, so I feel like a prisoner. And because of my checkered job history it seems like I will never own a little house. I do not get any money from the government, there are people out their worst off than me, so I don’t feel right taking government assistance. But finally seeing that I really may be in a hopeless situation, I ask, here, humbled by my life, for help. (I had asked my parents for them to buy a little $30,000.00 house in Washington state, but they are retired and spend their time and money on World travel, they seem to be embarrassed by me so they don’t ever call me or offer to help). I know there are people out there that may be able to help. Thank you if you can. I just need a stable place to live, that a home of mine own can provide. Apartments are scary to me because the landlord could kick me out anytime. Every knock at the door makes me jump, thinking oh no, did I laught too loud? At least with a house I can manage to pay the taxes and no one can take my house. At least then I have a stable base to build a life on. Thank you for reading and thank you if you help.
My name is Jonathan Jones and I am at the present time unemployed and have no money, no house, and no vehicle. What I do have is a wonderful family that is very deserving of having a good Christmas. I love my family more than life its self and am very depressed due to the fact that Christmas is approaching very quickly and I have nothing to give my family to make sure that they have the Christmas they deserve. The ideal thing for me to do for them would be to come up with the money so that we could get a place of our own. More realistically I would like to ask for those that understand my situation to please help me in any way they possibly can. I do not personally expect or want anything except to see my family happy even if it is for just the one day. Thanks very much to anyone who even takes the time to try to help my family would greatly appreciate it.
Hi my name is Kate. My sister is 25 and she has a little girl aged 7 and in 2009 my sister was involved in a horrendous car accident. On her way to college, her car aquaplaned off the road and hit a wall. The ambulance crew scraped her off the road and brought her to A&E. My sister broke the c2 bone in her neck and was in a coma for a few weeks. Luckily she did wake up but went through gruelling physiotherapy to relearn how to walk, talk and do basically everything again.
The irony is, she was on her way to college to give a presentation on Road Safety. Her daughter was only 19 months at the time and on the day of the accident she was supposed to be travelling in the car so my sister would drop her to the creche. The poor police officers were looking for a baby in the ditches when they came on the scene as they saw a buggy and car seat in the car. Luckily my mother that day had the day off work and said she would look after my niece instead of her going to the creche.
My sister was doing a nursing degree and she had to take a year off to recover. The following year she went back to college to finish her course. She graduated with her degree and now is studying a Masters in Occupational Therapy. The accident has left her with a head injury in that she gets tired very easily, she needs help alot to look after my niece. She had to move back into the family home so my family could babysit and because she cant afford to move into somewhere by herself. At the moment she only gets very little money to live on and all extra money goes towards college fees and books and I would love to treat them to a trip to Disneyland as my niece loves Mickey and Minnie mouse. They haven’t been on a holiday anywhere since the accident.
I’m not asking for a lot, just if there is any generous people out there that could maybe donate or sponsor a trip or whatever amount you can donate, I would be more than grateful. We are an honest and decent hard working family that just needs a little help at the moment.
Thanks for reading
Hello there my name is Steve Gorney. My fiance is a 4th grade teaching and we have been trying very hard to pay for our upcoming wedding. Every day we start getting on track she needs my help to buy groceries, pay bills and has set me back into large credit card debt. She works very hard and has nothing to show for it. Anything you can provide large or small would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.
First thing that I remember is my dad punching my mum for some random reasons that today seem very immature. My mum escaped to another country and took me with her. I remember it like it was yesterday. She found a taxi cab and we just took off. Soon after that what I remember is that we are in a flat, I’m going to school. We didn’t have a car, that is, she didn’t have a car and she was taking me to school every single rainy day. Since the beginning she was paying for my education and spend 95% of her life for me, most possibly even more than that just so I could have a future. Soon after that I was growing and becoming more and more a man, but it wasn’t easy not having a man’s influence in the family. Mum tried to replace my dad’s influence of a “strong fist”, losing her motherly instincts in the process. A mother cannot be a father. Yelling couldn’t accomplish anything and that kind of raising a child left some scars on my soul that I’m still trying to overcome. Throughout the years of attending psychologists and psychiatrists she has been labeled as a narcissistic mother and she is still struggling with her condition. It is causing her a lot of pain and she cannot control it. I also found out that I have inherited the same curse, making me unable to fully engage in emphatic conversations. I cannot help my friend, schoolmate, coworker, stranger to feel good because the nature of how I was raised has control over my emotions and even though I am aware of the beautiful energies that beautiful people emit, my instincts make me steal, drain that energy instead of giving it and healing a persona in need. Since I recognized my nature of flow of being, I have been trying to find a way to change that… but my instincts have been hardwired into my brain and the ego is too strong. As I have been making progress in self-analysis and self-development I have tried to implement that knowledge to cure the woman who brought me to this world but no progress has been made. Even though I have helped my friends find some wisdom from the solitude I have, no matter how small that solitude of mine is, my knowledge is still not sufficient. I still cannot help my friend who has been molested by her ex husband or my cousin who cannot get away from drugs… or most importantly, my dad who has the need to punish his new kids and his new wife because they are not good enough and my mum who cannot get away from her haunting beliefs. Right now I’m in a new place in this world trying to make a living without any work experience, trying to become something valuable enough and benefit the world that we live in. In this capitalistic system you cannot do anything without money. I have been trying to find ways to make residual passive income but, again, you need money for the investments. While working as a construction laborer I can barely have time to eat anything appropriate. I wish I could pay for university so I can get a decent job and get the necessary skills to help anyone who needs it. I also wish that I could start a business no matter how small or big it is, at least something that can make me a living and possibly to pay off my further education. Great things never came from comfort zones.
God bless to anyone who wishes to help me on my quest as it will be repaid to the lost souls in need.
My name is Julia, and I’m trying to earn money to go to another country.
I was dreaming to travel all around the world for as long as I can remember. My family couldn’t afford this. I was working really hard for almost a year and finally had the required amount of money, but 2 month ago my family member needed an emergency surgery. Of course, the welfare of my family is more important than my traveling, so I gave all my money for this operation. I’m still working and still trying to earn and save money again. But I need to help my family with money, too. And it seems I’ll never be able to realize my dream into reality. That’s why I decided to ask for a little help. Even $500 would be enough to buy plane tickets and hold some hotel room (I want to visit Japan). I would draw a portrait of everyone who wants to help me as a thank you!
I wish I could have $650,000 to finish my dream. I am not going to reap without sowing. I will pay money back. I hope people who are reading this enjoy their life and willing to help with trust.
I wish that I could have $1,000,000. And I am not going to reap without sowing. I wish people who are reading this are enjoying their life and willing to help with trust. It’s because I will pay money back.
Silly huh. I would like to purchase a tamale machine and a larger steamer pot. I taught myself how to make them by watching youtube and developing my own recipe. I am disabled due to an autoimmune disease (erytherdermic psoriasis) I get upset and burn form the inside out..Yea me! My Dr tells me I am her most extreme patient! Yea Me again! I do take treatments that keep it somewhat under control every 6 weeks at $12k a intravenous treatment (Remicade) thank the Lord for my husband’s insurance. Ok why I am asking for Money…I wanted something I could do that would allow me to feel useful and make a little extra for added expenses that arise. I use to be a purchasing manager in the telecos before becoming too ill to work…so not working is hard personally. I loved to cook and my father being Hispanic and growing up in OC I miss having a good tamale. So I made my own recipe. The picture below was a batch of 90 doz I donated to my son’s football team for a fundraiser that took me a week to make. I have alot of people that would like for me to make more but I am limited to what I can physically do. I would like to purchase a Tia Carlos Machine approx $540 dollars and a larger steamer pot at $79 dollars to help make larger batches and make it physically easier. Coming up with that much extra is just not in the budget. Everyone loves to eat a good tamale but NO ONE EVER wants to help make them….lol.
My name is Alyssa. I am 27 years old and have been working since the age of 15. I have had many different jobs, from dishwashing, bartending and housekeeping to office manager and sales consultant for some of the top tour companies and ski resorts in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. I have never been fired from a job, and yet after over 10 years in the work force, I feel I have nothing to show for all the time and effort I have contributed.
After high school, I attended University and despite struggling through it, I managed to graduate with a Bachelor Degree in French Studies and $18,000 in student loan debt.
I was working 2 jobs, 7 days a week just to stay afloat on my own, trying to cover student loan payments, credit card payments, rent, and car payments. As most people can relate to, I had been looking for my place and purpose in the world. I found it when I met Josh.
In the past 2 years, we have had to jump over several hurdles just to be together. I am from Canada, and Josh is from New Zealand. Due to visa restrictions, we were unable to live together in the same country. We were committed to making the relationship work, and focused our efforts on finding a way to be together. In order to get residency in each other’s countries, we had to prove our relationship. This meant sacrificing everything we had – our savings, our jobs, our families and friends – to spend a year in Australia gathering evidence such as joint bank accounts, rental leases and utilities bills.
A few short months before leaving for Australia, I found out I was 5 months pregnant. Josh and I had to make the hardest decision we have ever had to make. We could not live together on the same soil, and were not in a financial state to support and raise a child. Our hearts broke.
As I struggled through loneliness, depression, anxiety and job insecurity, I fell behind on paying bills and watched my credit score go up in flames. Working as hard as possible, I still felt helpless.
We both work full time, but our dreams seem to be getting even further from our reach. I don’t even have enough extra money to fly home and visit my family, whom Josh has never had the pleasure of meeting. We are now engaged, and I have acquired a 1 year work visa for New Zealand, but there is still much to do in order to secure our future together. We want to be able to put money away for residency applications, for land in Canada, for our future children. My dream is to have a wedding where our two families can meet, and our friends be reunited. None of this seems possible without putting ourselves even further into debt, when my goal is to climb out of debt in order to move forward. So all in all, we are stuck. At 27 years old, I feel like a failure having to borrow money from others. And I have no doubt others look at me and think the same.
All I want in life is the share it with the man I love. If you believe in love like I do, please help give us a chance at a happy life together so we can share our love with others.
I am a 43 year old Portuguese man living with my mother in a small apartment. My parents divorced when I was 12 and I live with her ever since. She has only a small disability pension after she was run over by a motorcycle a few years ago. I have to pay the rent and all expenses with just my salary. Also, I am an only child and my father died some years ago.
Due to being many times short on cash, having costly car repairs, unexpected expenses, poor investments, etc., I started using credit card and consumer loans a lot. The highest interest rates I pay are close to 30% and I have spent years just revolving those loans, paying the monthly minimum and borrowing more.
I made a lot of budgeting over the years, tried to tightly control my spending but to no avail. The total amount I owe surpasses 40.000 euros and it simply doesn’t budge. Monthly interests to pay are just too high. Never in my life had I imagined it would come to this.
Attached is a cropped picture of one of my credit card statements.
I have no savings account and I own nothing of real value. I drive an old by reliable car and that’s all.
Unfortunately my social network is pretty much inexistent and asking for help to my uncles or cousins (or even my boss) is out of the question. I have no one to turn to.
I would appreciate any kind soul to help me with this by making a contribution, no matter how small.
I really want to get rid of this burden once and for all. Please help me to break from this “prison cell” and let me live again! I promise I will be more careful with my money in the future.
She is from Japan, I am from Hungary, we met in Scotland, now working in Switzerland and planning to settle and open a business in Japan…..just an average love story. or not?
First time we met, we were working together in a beautiful hotel on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands. At the beginning only as friends, two average guys, who just enjoys spending free time together after a hard day at work.
But soon- well, about a year- this friendly feeling has changed, to something more deeper, and we realized, that we had fall in love. Of course as every love story in history, this one has it’s sadder and unhappier part as well, because Manami had to go back to Japan soon. But i decided to fight for the woman i love and asked her to marry me…….and her answer was yes.
After another few months of burocratic fight, finally we had managed to become Husband and Wife and to start our life together. We moved to Switzerland to work in one of the best ski resort in the world and save some money to visit her parents and friends in Japan.
And that is where this whole idea was borned. To move to Japan, open our own business and have a family and life.
But let’s face it, young, freshly married couple on average wage and a big dream…..life is not a fairy tale. Yes, we are working hard, yes, we are saving money, but no, this is not enough we all know that.
And this is why we decided to turn to the CrowdFunding, as we do belive in the kindness of people, who once had the same experience as us, or maybe just feel our struggle and have a chance to help us.
We don’t want to be millionares, driving luxus cars or yachts. the only thing we would like is to create a peaceful, beautiful life for our family.
This is my go fund me link below
My wife and I are nearing retirement. We have no money saved due to the inordinate amount of doctor bills, medicine costs and hospital visits through the years. My wife had bipass surgery in 1999 at the age of 43. She died during the surgery and was resuscitated. She remained in a coma for nine days and when she did wake up, she had had a stroke. She has since regained some of the strength in her left side. She has also had minor brain damage. She has not worked since because she is physically unable. I work two jobs to pay our bills and spend very little time with my wife whom I love very much. I would love to be able to raise enough money to pay off our bills so I could spend more time with my wife. She is a stroke victim, suffers from bipolar disorder, has heart and artery disease and still remains positive through it all. She is my inspiration to keep going.
Well I don’t really know where to start. I have had 22 wonderful years with my wife and 2 children. We had everything we always wanted, We lived in a beautiful house in the country ! we travelled often, Lots of family weekend trips to the beach, and enjoyed Disney in the winters.
I worked away on the road every week, and as my children got older, it got harder and harder , to leave each week. So my wife and I purchased a business , a Restaurant and General Store generating enough income to support the family and our lifestyle. It was great for the first 2 years, we made enough money to live quite comfortable.
The next year the economy took a bad turn and we just scraped by. The next few years, got real bad so we” financed everything’ we could, to keep things going and kept our 6 employees working .
The next year is when it all came to a end. we lost everything our business, our house . we had to move back to the city, where my wife and I both grew up a couple of hrs away. we rented a small house , that’s all we could afford. Things were getting better for a half of a year, and we both found jobs!
Then came all the creditors calls, plus the garnishes on our wages ! Both of our wages were getting garnished 50% . so it did get worse.
So that went on for a year till we were forced to claim bankruptcy! By the time we sign the papers for the bankruptcy, My wife and I were both so tired of everything, of arguing , worrying etc. My wife asked me for a separation and to leave ! It absolutely broke my heart. The one person” who always had my back” just bailed on me !
I left with $200 in my pocket. I stayed with a really good friend of mines , who I will always be indebted too. I saved enough to get first and lasts rent on a small apartment with nothing in it. I have had some things donated to me, which I am so pleased to have. The second hand stores in my area, have some really nice things and this place is” truly” looking awesome, for not having much.
So now 3 months later, I am slowly rebuilding my life,” My children” , one going to university, the other one to college, and a bunch of bills, With a third of my paycheck going to bankruptcy payments for the next 2 years . Life is supposed to get easier ! as you get older.
I am a firm believer, that I will, and my family” will indeed’ make it through these hard times, and when things are better for us ! I intend to pass the good gesture on to other people” in need” I believe that every good thing you receive in life , one should pass on the good faith !
And that is my story , Thank you so much for taking the time, anyways to read it !
I want to smile without embarrassment. I want to be able to eat and chew without pain. If you feel like you could help in any way, I beg you too.
Hi there :-)
Due to an unloving mother and father who abandoned me at the age of 13 to fend for myself left alone.I Never have had proper dental care as there has always been something else any spare money went too. And still there is always something more important than my teeth. My two kids my husband have needs that I want to see met before I worry about the pain and condition of my mouth. It’s my fault cause I chose to put their monetary wishes before my health. Even so…there isn’t ever enough spare to start any treatment of my mouth. I have had a condition called bruxism all of my life, my husband says it sounds like I am chewing rocks. My 34 years of that and I have now completely destroyed my mouth. I have no molars to chew with. And my remaining teeth break when I floss.
My dream is to just be able to chew and eat again.
I am a man of 50 years who were separated for nine years ago. We had two incomes and then everything was fine. She remarried a millionaire and bring children and grandchildren on trips around the world and buy nice gifts tildem. I survive barely even on my income, but I ahr never afford to do something together with children and grandchildren. Or buy gifts for them. It’s one of my biggest dreams to be able to do it. So that’s my biggest dream in life.
I’m a lady who has beaten breast cancer and I want to travel see some of this Beautifull world that we live in I’m also a mum to four Beautifull children two of who have health problems I just need some time out I hope to live on as I’m not done yet with my life just want to put my feet in the warm ocean feel the cool breeze on my skin I love Beautifull scenery just want to see it for real much love JX
Hi, my name is Sharon and I am looking for help to pay off my student loans. This is my story…..
I am currently almost 40 years old and I have a little over $33,000 owed in student loans. Why does one my age have such a debt? If you are willing to read on I will tell you.
For much of my life I suffered from severe anxiety. There was a time it was so bad I couldn’t leave my house. I even had a counselor try to get me to apply for disability. I couldn’t do it. I was a mom and I refused to think that this was going to be my entire life. I was determined to fight with all my might to show my children that you can do anything that you put your mind to. It was a long road and it took a lot of years to get to where I am now. I couldn’t work, the mere thought of applying for a job would put me in panic. For years I just stayed home and took care of my babies. I was depressed and I slept a lot. I was missing out on life. My kids were getting older and noticing my sleeping habits. “Why does mommy sleep so much?” Ouch, those words cut like a knife. I remember that about my mom. I wanted my kids to see me differently. That’s when I decided it was time to get a job.
Who would hire me? I had literally been home for 15 years raising my 5 children. I talked to my sister who suffers the same panic I do and together we decided if we went to school together maybe we wouldn’t have such anxiety. We even took the same classes just to be together. After one semester she quit and I decided to press on. Going to school for 5 years, yes it took that long, helped me get used to having to be somewhere and press through my anxiety. My school was paid for through grants. The student loans were to help get us through the winters when my husband didn’t have work and to pay off some high interest credit card debt accumulated from having only one income and a large family to care for.
Going to school turned my life around. I still have anxiety but I have learned some coping methods that help me get through it. In my last semester of school I had to do an internship. After the anxiety passed I really enjoyed it and really believed I could get a job. I just needed to get through that initial anxiety ridden first few days. But to my surprise I didn’t have to start over. The company where I did my internship wanted to hire me. The perfect storm. I was past the anxiety part and comfortable there. Things couldn’t have worked out better. I will celebrate my two year anniversary there in March. My kids are proud of me, my husband is proud of me and I am finally proud of me.
I finally feel like I am contributing to my family. Now I want to fill a promise that I made to my children. I promised them that someday we would have a house. Don’t get me wrong we are not homeless. We own a trailer. Well almost, we owe $6000 on our 15 year loan. I know we are blessed and we have far more than a lot of people but that doesn’t make me want a house any less. Two of my children are grown and gone but I have a chance to keep that promise to the three still at home.
We will be getting a house. We even got a preapproval. Now that reality has set in I wonder if we will be able to afford it. This is why I am asking for help. I pay $450.00 per month on these student loans in order to have them paid off in ten years. I have never been late and will continue to pay them. But they are killing us. I paid $3445.13 in interest on them in 2015. That’s crazy. I would feel more comfortable purchasing a home if these student loans did not exist. Especially the ones that are carrying the highest interest rates.
Loan groups B, D, and F are at 6.8% and loan group A, is at 5.6%. I think these interest rates are outrages for loans that are suppose to be there to help you better your future. Interest rates on homes aren’t even that high. Crazy!
Well now that you’ve heard my story, and I thank you for taking the time to read it, it is up to you if you would like to help.

My name is Alex, and God has been calling me into ministry. I didn’t know which school to go to until I toured the Ramp School of Ministry in Hamilton, Alabama. I have decided to go there, but I don’t have enough money for tuition and housing. Please help me out with this. Thank you so much!

Helll my name is Jade, I am 24 years old and live in the South of England! I am a qualified level 3 Florist, I specialise in weddings, Funerals and Celebrations! ?? I have been a florist since the young age of 15 when I left School with not the best of grades but wanted to do something different as I have creative mind and a good eye for Art! I have worked in a few different shops and made some absolutely beautiful things! Unfortunately though the wage of a Florist isn’t the best and it’s a struggle for me to pay my rent and bills let alone save enough to start my travels! And it doesn’t matter how hard I work as a Florist, even through the night at times when there are big Weddings, it doesn’t increase my pay. I do it because I love it and am passionate about nature and making people smile …. ?
I wont lie to you and say I’m Ill or have problems as I don’t. I am just looking for some help in my medical bills, insurance etc whilst i go travelling!

just to prove I’m a real person ??
To sum up the situation, I was really silly when I was younger and haven’t the best credit score, therefore because of this I need to put a bigger deposit down for my mortgage. The original amount was 10,000, and I was half way there. Until I went for a proper meeting with the bank, and they’ve now doubled this. I know there are a lot of stories on this that deserve the money more than I do, but, you never know until you ask. So, aye, I’m putting myself out there and begging for money. I also want to add that its me, solely in this mortgage on my own. I don’t have a partner to split the saving with, and at least if I have a house under my belt, it gives my son that little bit more security. At the moment i’m 26 and back at home living with my parents so that I can save money for this. So I would be forever grateful, even though this isn’t my best moment in life. Just stuck in a rut.
to who ever reads this my name is Meredith and I have spent years working to make my life better unfortunately all that it did was create more debt. I went to school for 5 years and have a bachelors degree, I work a full time job, and do everything I can to support my husband and I. He was injured on the job in 2009, can no longer work due to a back injury and the money he got paid all the back debt but didn’t do much after that as I struggled to find a job for two years after I graduated. I was either overqualified or not quite qualified enough. This coupled with a rent to own scam that took the last of what we had in savings just hit so hard that I struggle to even buy food and still pay bills. I am doing this all on my own and it’s beyond frustrating. I have worked overtime but it’s exhausting and I can only do it for short periods of time before my health takes a hit. I am ashamed that I am here begging for someone to please just help me get out of this hole so I can have something that resembles a life. Right now all I can do is work and stay home because I can’t afford to do anything. I have 63000 in school debt (like I said before I tried to make my life better and all it did was make more debt) I currently have a car loan that has close to 15000 left owed. Two credt cards (500) on each, that I pay the minimum on only to end up using what’s on there because money didn’t go far enough. If I didn’t need to buy food, gas, and basic things we NEED then my check barely covers bills. I have been working on cutting things back but it always seems even when I have a rare moment where everything is paid something happens like right now I got 2000 from my bonus and 300 in tax return that went the day I got it catching everything up and I thought good I can try to make this work…two days later my clutch started just not working right now I have probably close to 2000 that the car needs in repair that I can’t pay and everyday it gets worse I worry that it will completely stop working and I will have no way to get to work. This would just put us back where we started in a tent living at a camp site. I am doing everything I can to make extra and don’t know what else to do. I know that if I was ever in a position to help others I would do so. I don’t know where else to turn at this point so I am here begging for someone anyone to help me. I don’t care what you would be willing to help with, be it help me pay off the car so it frees up 400 in my budget, so I can do this on my own from there, or money to help pay bills. Basically if I could get my hands on 5000 to 20,000 I could get everything done I need to so that I can manage my life on my own I know 20,000 is a big number but it would be wiped out in mins, pay the car off, credit cards off, catch up all the bills, and fix the car then my budget would be manageable. If you reading this were able to help me this way it would change my life forever and I would owe you my whole world. I would go from surviving to actually getting to enjoy what short time we get to live on this planet. What I can reassure you off is that I am just a girl who is trying to support my family (as much as I want a child I thank god everyday I don’t have any yet because I wouldn’t be able to provide for them) and doing everything I can to make my life better. I would use any assistance in this goal of being able to get my budget where I can do it on my own. I don’t like having to ask/beg for help but at this point I don’t know where else to turn except to the charity of others and hope that someone sees my plea and sees that I am a good person that would do the same for someone else if I had the means. There are not words that can express my thanks for what you could/would be doing for my life. I know that you should work for anything you have this is how I was raised and as a final thought I want you to know I have been working (went to school because they said it would help me get better, it made finding a job harder) doing everything I can to just get to okay. I promise if you help me I will find a way to pay it forward to someone else because I believe that kindness paid forward earns you kindness in return. Please let me know if you have questions or concerns
