I have tried so hard to balance life while being a full time unpaid caregiver to my disabled mother. I was also trying to help my father but he passed away in October. My mother has many medical problems and all she keeps saying is im sorry and always worried I’m going to give up on her and let her go to a nursing home. If I could get just ahead a little so we could do anything other then worry constantly. Since I have to be with mom unpaid we are existing on 744 a month with rent being a large portion of where the money goes, you add electric, gas, water, trash and mom’s medicine deductible it’s all gone. The state gives us 15 in food stamps so yea we are hungry most of the month and I have tried so hard but fail.. I would accept any amount of help even though I already know only others who need help will be only ones reading this and I will get laughed at by most. Im not asking for hand out just hand up. I’m a carpenter by trade and a mechanic I’m willing to work for the help. If I had a rv I could and would rather live in a motorhome so I could go back to building homes and could have my mom in a safe comfortable home while at the job site with me always so I could be like 1 min from her and earn our own way. I would sign a loan contract even interest I don’t care I just know I coukd fix our own life if I had a decent rv. I have the worst ugliest oldest Astro van that can’t take my mom in anywhere because it coukd break down any min and no ac she would have breathing attacks. So If by some accident this is real and someone out there actually wants to loan us some money to be paid back for an motorhome and cheap car or truck or van I can prove I’m not looking for free anything and will pay back any hand up offered.. OR IF YOU HAVE A DECENT MOTORHOME I WOULD GLADLY Take that instead of money. Up to a 10000 loan would set our life for ever.
Jamal and I met in 2011 online dating we were 19 years old. Today we are 26 and madly in love with each other. After college, we said we would wait until we were financially stable to start our lives. In 2015 Jamal was attacked badly by his Crohns disease and was hospitalized for a few days. Also at the same time, my father was hospitalized with Diabetic Ketoacidosis. After these two scares, Jamal and I realized that we wanted to start our lives together and not have anyone that we hold dear miss it. Jamal proposed Christmas 2016 and we planned for a wedding in September 2018. Over the course of planning, we were blessed with many gifts from friends and family to soften the blow of wedding expense and thus far have been blessed. out final expense would be that of our $5,000.00 catering bill which was the smallest package we could get. We have saved what we could for it but with everyday expenses, medical bills of my father who helps as much as he can while also supporting the rest of my family and medical bills for Jamal it all seems very far away and coming here is our last resort. So we thank you in advance for anything that comes our way and will be forever grateful to those who believe that love conquers all.
Hello everyone my name is Amy I have a son called Caleb he is 14 months old, before I start I would just like to say I have never had the confidence to reach out and ask for help, every time I thought about it I would brush it off my shoulders and hope it would get better but my financial problems are only getting worse, Me and my son are currently living with my ex boyfriend who isn’t the dad to my little one but even better than him he’s fantastic but we decided to go our own ways as it wasn’t working out but we still are living together (which is tough as it is) I have a dream to start over with me and my son but I don’t think that’s going to happen I’ve asked the council for help to be rehoused they won’t help unless there’s violence from my ex partner he isn’t violent atall so I wouldn’t dare tell them that just so I could be rehoused, my partner can’t leave as he has nowhere to go and I don’t want to make him homeless, and on top of all that I work 16 hours a week struggling to get by, currently living off £122 a month it’s crazy even though I work 16 hours universal credit takes my wages off me all of it and leaves me with just rent and bills and this is what i am left with, I had a goal to keep saving even a tenner a month so me and my son can go back to the town where all my family are at the moment we are living in the countryside with no family nearby just me my son and my ex partner, I literally cannot save whilst I’m out here because of the money I get each month there’s nothing left to put aside, I was debating whether to work full time but then I’m missing out on spending time with my son plus it’s more money to get to work that I can’t even afford, I’m trying my best as a mother but so much pressure is on me I just want me and my little boy to have a better life, so i ask please if anybody can donate a few quid here and there it could help me be back where my family and support is and a lot closer to work (I travel 2 hours to get to work and home again) and it would be brilliant to bring a toy home from work once a month for my son, he deserves it I feel like such a rubbish mum I’m trying I really am… unfortunetly my family aren’t supportive on the money borrowing side of things and my ex partner isn’t working so I’m literally stuck. I would like to go and take my son to London zoo he loves animals I’d love to see his smile if we ever got the chance to go there. Things have been tough really tough but I understand people are going through much worse than me but I can’t help but think am I ever going to be near my family again… am I ever going to be able to have a house near my family with just me and my son with no stress… i would like to deeply thank you all in advance just for reading my problems (even though I’m not very good with writing them down) and for anybody who can donate to me and my son so we can step on the right path to where we want to be. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, much appreciated, Amy & Caleb x

I have recently been wanting a laptop to improve in my studies and started save some money up but unfortunately half of the year has gone and I barely save quarter of the amount needed I also have been look for jobs and applying but none of my requests have been approved or accepted which made me really sad so now I’m looking for another to make the amount I’m looking for and would love your help in my journey to buying a laptop.
A Journey to My Dream
I would like to thank you in advance for clicking on this and considering donating for my number 1 dream.
For the past seven years I have been counting each day, each month, and each year that goes by without children of my own.
When I decided to try to start a family of my own, I had it all planned out in my mind. I thought it would happen within the first year. When that year flew by with no luck, I went to the doctor just to make sure there was no medical issue preventing me from conceiving. The doctors found nothing that would impede me and told me that for some it just takes a little longer.
I then went on with our normal routines continuing to hope and pray that I would become pregnant soon. To my dismay, another year went by with nothing. Each week that passed felt like years. Determined to find answers, I went back to the doctor multiple times over the next two years. I did 6 cycles of Clomid, home remedies and herbal supplements with no results in the end. Within those two years, it felt liked everyone around me was conceiving a precious gift. This was something that I so desperately wanted to experience for myself and all I ever wanted ever since I started taking care of my nieces and nephews at the age of 16.
My family and friends would tell me my time was coming. I just had to relax, be patient, and it would happen. That is easier said than done. I didn’t want to wait any longer. At this point it seemed as though everything around me was about babies! Everything I saw on TV, billboards, the radio, and most conversations had something to do with babies. That made me feel sad because the one thing that I desperately wanted to experience, was slipping out of my hands.
In late 2015, I had my doctor refer me to a fertility specialist who promptly diagnosed me as unexplained infertility. During that year I decided to proceed with 1 IUI’s. I honestly had confidence in the success of the first procedure using medication Clomid. However, I also knew it was not guaranteed, none of these procedures are. When the first procedure of Clomid failed, I was devastated. I took a break and refocused on what I really wanted for the next year. In 2017, I decided to proceed with the Clomid for 5 more cycles through the year. Unfortunately, that still didn’t work. The whole situation became overwhelming to me and I broke down. This is when I sat myself down, thought about it, and came to the conclusion that this was it. I couldn’t go on like this, it was consuming me. I couldn’t do this to myself any longer. I have to live my life happy without children of my own. Even though I never give up on anything and I am the type of person that keeps going until I reach my goal, I knew that I was hurting myself with disappointment. In the end, I decided not to move forward with the third IUI, which I felt was more than likely not going to work. I am still hopeful and wish that one day I will be able to have a child of my own.
I have one god-son, three god-daughters, 5 nieces and 4 nephews; everyone says those are just as good as my own. Nevertheless, I still can’t keep myself from wishing that I could go through my own pregnancy. You see, it’s not just having a baby that I long for , it’s all the little things that I want to go through, even the unpleasant ones, it’s the first kick, the sleepless nights, talking and singing to my belly. It’s my husband putting his hand on my belly and picking the name together. It’s the excitement of wondering if it’s a boy or girl. It’s all the doctor’s appointments and all the sacred moments. It’s watching a person that you conceived grow inside of you and the feeling of happiness that you get when you deliver and looking into the eyes of your own child. It’s the look of achievement on our faces when we hold our newborn child.
I find myself still wishing for a family, wanting it more than anything. Watching all my family and friends children grow up together wondering when mine will come or if it will even happen. I often think what my world would be like with my own children, the family dinners, and family talks. Watching the sports my children will play, the late night studying, even carpooling are things I yearn for. When I was a little girl I dreamed of a big family of my own. That dream will never go away.
While starting this process in 2015, I had saved up money to make my dream come true. I did this by working three jobs, my full time job and my 2 part time jobs. I have exhausted all of my funds that I saved with continuing with the 5 IUI cycles. Now I would like to have a shot at one more chance of having a child and be able to proceed with the IVF route. I know that this is a pricey procedure and I would appreciate any help or assistance that you are willing to donate. I am a very hard worker but there comes a time were you get worn out and I am to that point. This is the part that I need help with. I hate to ask for help, but just like everyone else sometimes you just need a little help. With medication and the entire procedure, I know this will cost about $15,000 – $18,000.
I’m asking you family, friends, and strangers to please help me fulfill my dream of becoming a parent to a child that I have wanted for so long.
Thank you for reading and I love all of you!!!!!
My name is Kieran, I’m 21 and I live with my wonderful girlfriend.
In my last relationship, I was used and manipulated by my girlfriend, who spent all the money I earned, cheated on me, and caused me to never really want another relationship. That was until I met my current girlfriend.
We met up as friends, having known her since I was 12 but not being allowed to speak to her during my last relationship..
We went for a drive, neither of us with any intention of anything. We continued speaking and a week later, shared our first kiss. I had never met anyone so kind and caring for me. She knows all about my last relationship, and has done everything possible to show me how much she cares for me.
We now live together and every day I am reminded of how amazing she is. She has helped me to reconnect with the friends I lost in my last relationship, helped me to take up the hobbies I stopped, and made me happy every day.
I would be here for hours if I went into detail on all the things she has done for me.
I never used to believe in the phrase “when you know, you know”, but I have gladly been proven wrong. The past few months I have been thinking about how much I would like to pop the question, and I now think it is time.
My problem is money. As we’re both in our 20’s and in the early stages of our careers, with household bills, our income is not high and spending the money on a ring would not do us any favours financially.
It would mean the world to me to be able to buy my girlfriend the ring she deserves, and although she has said she would be happy with a £10 ring, I want to get her something which she will cherish forever.
I am saving every penny I can, but it’s still not enough, and any help would just be incredible. I would love for you to share in my moment and cannot begin to explain how much any donation would mean to me. Every penny donated will go towards the ring and maybe even our wedding.
How can I repay a wonderful family who have gone above and beyond anything I couold imagine. Very hard to put intop words the help and support I have receives at great cost to this family I need to pay for what they have done out of the goodness of their heart.I do have a real need to rectify problems that a wonderful family have become involved in and basically kept my beautiful daughters in school and having a roof over their heads. This has been done at great cost to them a partly without my knowledge the lengths they had gone to provide help. Background, arriving in Thailand in 1998 successful business partnership until 2013 in the hospitality area, successful relationship (or so I thought) two daughters currently fourteen and six years old. Business partner in 2013 thought it would be a good idea to borrow heavily against the business against many people’s advice which led to business failure and as an added kick in the guts it seemed that my relationship was built purely on the almighty dollar. Relationship meltdown firstly cost me plenty but managed to have my two beautiful daughters come with me, but as older wiser people have always said to me an end to a relationship will cost you plenty and it did. Since 2013 my daughters have been with me and I have had the good fortune to have a Thai family to help me in the care of them both who accepted them as daughters and granddaughters. This family has gone above and beyond to keep my children in school and a roof over their heads, I need somehow to step up for them by repaying the debt owed by me to this family of decent human beings. Hard to write about the sacrifices they have made over the last five years in their financial support over what has been a real eyeopener in life’s journey. Yes, I do need help in repaying what they have done for my two beautiful girls over the last five years. This would have to be the most difficult thing I have ever pursued asking for help such a big step for me as someone who tried to be the one that helped where it was needed. It is time for me to ask for help and repay for help I have received.
this is really awkward but bear with me.
im 24 and i’ve lived with my mom and she has struggled as a single mother my whole life.
for most of my childhood my mom and i were stuck with an abusive person.
from that i was stuck with ptsd, severe panic/anxiety and depression, on top of that i have fibro like my mom.
because of my fear of interaction with people i cant work like a normal person i cant even walk out my front door. my mom works so hard she also has depression. she works herself ragged and the money she gets barely covers everything. she has to pay for my doctor visits because i have no way to earn. i go to my sessions hoping that at some point i can have some type of normal. i would like to try and finish my accounting degree but i can only take classes online and they cost so much. if i could finish it then i could earn my own money and then when someone is stuck like me i can be kind and lend a hand
if you are kind and help thank you its very appreciated.
right now i would just like to be able to help my mom and such
My son and I were separated when he was ten years old. I had no choice but to let him go live with relatives when our home burned to the ground. I was virtually homeless and didn’t want that for my son. He left our Florida town and went to Alabama. It has been almost five long, hard years. I have managed to visit him once a year and every time all we talk about is me moving there so that he can stay in the school with the friends that he has made. Also he is very active in sports there and I would never want to take him away from the life that he has made. We both want badly for me to be able to move there to be with him.
I have made some progress of my own since the beginning of all this. I am a recent college graduate. I have an AS degree in Medical Coding and I am now pursuing my AS in Paralegal Studies. There is an abundance of jobs available in his town and I have already applied to a few.
My son will be starting high school this coming up year and I cannot imagine not being there with him. I want to be there for his homecoming game and his prom. I want to be with my son for his regular, every day to day life. $500. is all I am asking for to get me there by bus and give me a little to live on for a few weeks. This would mean more than I even know how to describe to both, him and I. Please help my son and I be together, I just want to be his Mom again.

Greetings to all,
My name is Ghislain Therien. I’m a 43 year old man whose life turned up-side down last March. Over a two week’s period, I rapidly lost usage of my arms, hands and legs. After being in a coma and in intensive care unit, I woke up to find myself in a wheelchair severely handicapped. Having been hospitalized for 7 and a half months, I have gone through an intensive battery of tests. I have recently been diagnosed with CIDP (Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy), which is an acquired immune-mediated inflammatory disorder of the peripheral nervous system. The disorder is sometimes called chronic relapsing polyneuropathy (CRP) or chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (because it involves the nerve roots, in other words my immune system turned against my nervous system which causes intense pain, weaknesses and numbness in my arms, hands and legs.
Now, I am unable to walk or even write my name, and mostly need constant care. But with the help of physiotherapy, occupational therapy, IVIG, steroids treatments, strength, determination and perseverance, I’m finally starting to learn to live as a handicapped person. I am an accomplished artist painter, but this CIPD has rendered me disabled and unable to paint. There are so many things I still want to accomplish in life, small and big dreams, such as painting again, working again, travelling again, but ultimately, WALKING again is my main goal….As Neil Armstrong said ’A small step for man, a giant leap for humanity. In this capacity, I am appealing to your sense of humanity and I have faith that a few of you will understand my story and be empathetic by contributing in helping for a long recovery ahead. Even though this disease is chronic and will affect me for many moons to come, I still find the strength to go on with a SMILE and I HOPE to make you part of my journey ahead.
I have come to realize that we take so many small things for granted. Now, everyday is a struggle to handle the smallest of tasks, but I try to overcome them with courage and support from kind words of friends and family. Thank god I have minimal support to move on and keep my spirits high, otherwise it would be so easy to fall into a deep depression. I feel LOVED, I am a kind person, but if there’s anyway you could provide minimal financial assistance, it would be of tremendous value to enhance my quality of life. And if financial assistance does not come, just know that YOU are LOVED regardless.
+++ UPDATE +++
On the morning of April 12 2018, I found my 47 yo spouse lifeless in our bed, most likely due to a heart attack in his sleep. Now, on top of my handicapped condition which makes me unable to work, I am now widowed. I’m devastated as on top of being the love of my life, he was my caregiver, my confident, my friend, my rock. My life have become pretty much a nightmare since last year and hopefully will find some help with this fundraiser.
Thanks you in advance for your donations and please ‘LIKE” and ‘SHARE” this fundraising.
I am single mother. I have a daughter, 15, and a son, 13. They are the reason I get up everyday. There lives have been one traumatic thing after another. They really need and deserve something positively good. They grew up in an abusive home with me. My father was diagnosed with cancer. So we moved in with him to take care of him til he passed in 2010. Two weeks later, their father and I split up. Very scary situations occurring everyday for months. After sixteen 911 calls, their father was in jail. Next event I get optic neuritis. I went completely blind in 5 days. Finally about a year later had 20/20 vision in one eye and nerve damage in other. ButI had to get away. So kids and I got family members house out of state and three days after being there I get call from my mom and she had been diagnosed with cancer, stage 4. We move in with my mom until she passed in 2015. Shortly after I started having a lot of problems with daughter wanting to die. She attempted suicide by taking a lot of pills. But wasn’t successful. I had to get her help. She has been diagnosed and currently being treated with medication and therapy for depression and anxiety. She does colorguard now and it’s great for her. My money is stretched to the max. We need a vacation. We deserve a vacation. All their friends at school go on family vacations. I want to give them this. I would be so thankful if someone could please help make this happen. I would be forever thankful and grateful.
Hello!! My name is Dominika and I am 18 years old. I just graduated from High School and it is a huge dream of mine to go back to Hungary this summer. This isn’t just a vacation for me. I left Hungary when I was 3 years old. Over a year ago during a trip back to Hungary, my parents decided to split and my dad stayed in Hungary while my mother and I came back to America. I haven’t seen my dad since then. This split was and still is extremely hard for me and I have yet to feel better about it. I’ve always been closer to him than my mother, he is my best friend, always there for me and the best dad in the whole world. He missed my high school graduation, one of the most important events in my life. It would mean the world to both me and to him if I could go back this summer and visit him/surprise him and the rest of my family. I want to surprise him so badly, and I’d bring my cap and gown with me as well as my diploma so we could take pictures together and celebrate. However, being fresh out of high school and having to pay a bunch of fees for college, it’s extremely hard for me to be able to afford these plane tickets at the moment- I’ve been searching for months. Tickets get more and more expensive every single day and I haven’t slept in months since I’ve been constantly digging for the best prices and deals 24/7. I’ve been trying so extremely hard to save money myself as well, but I can only do so much. My job hasnt been scheduling me at all lately and I’ve been looking for a new one, currently waiting to hear back from all the places I’ve applied to. In addition to putting money that I received from graduation aside, I’ve been selling everything that I don’t need and I also haven’t been eating out lately which is difficult to do as a teen lol. As a last resort I have decided to try to get some donations to see if I could really make this happen. Any amount genuinely helps and is greatly appreciated!! Thank you everyone from the bottom of my heart, it really does mean alot, even if you just read this and/or share it :) Help me go surprise my dad!!
I live with my parents, who are both suffering from multiple medical issues, lack any kind of social life, and are clearly depressed and stuck in an endless cycle of working paycheck to paycheck. This isn’t for me, it’s for them. I earn enough to support myself. I want to be able to move out but can’t because they rely on some of my income to help them get by (My dad’s on disability benefits after being a hard working mechanic for over 20 years and is now unable to work, drive, or barely walk… My mum is working part time on minimum wage)
All I want is to be able to move out and live my life normally, whilst under the knowledge that my parents are okay without me. My life is on pause. They barely have a life. I want to give them a life again. I’ve been saving up for a surprise holiday for us all for a while but that’s not enough. That’s temporary happiness.
In short… I want to be able to give my parents a bit of a break. They’re honest, caring and hard working people who have fallen on hard times and it’s painful seeing them live a pointless existence of working just to pay the bills or spending the day cleaning the house. They haven’t been out together in at least 15 years. They’re in their early 40’s. They have no friends. They’re always saying “oh it would be nice if we could go here/do this…” but they have no disposable income at all to spend on such things. They’re stuck and I want to save them, and the only way I know how is with money.
I want to take them away to all the nice places they always bring up, and spoil them. They truly deserve it. I think it would save their lives. You know when you can see someone withering away because they’ve just sort of lost hope and given up trying? That’s them. Again, this is not about me. I earn enough for what I need in life right now, but having me around the house I feel limits my parents’ privacy so, removing me from the house would potentially help them too. If I had enough money to pay them the rent money I currently give them, plus a little extra, I’d be able to move out and press play on my own life again whilst resting easy that my parents are living a slightly more worthwhile life.
I currently pay them £200 a month. If someone were to donate me enough money to cover a couple of years worth of the rent I usually pay my parents, plus a little extra to allow them to go out and enjoy themselves again, my wish will have come true.
Realistically I’m looking at around £7000 to help kickstart their lives again. It’s not too late for them. They’re only middle-aged. But they definitely need help to get back the life they used to have.
Thankyou for anything you can do to help!
I am raising funds to be able to fix our trailer and make it safe for us to live in. Last year we were homeless due to having a bed bug issue at our old apartment.
My name is Nancy, I am raising funds for my family to get materials for our trailer, which was given to us by a family member, so we moved to Maine, to have shelter, although it is falling apart, it is shelter..and we are Grateful…as our floors are soft and our roof is leaking, no skirting,just so much.
It was a very long winter for us.
Last year we were homeless and living in a tent, due to our last apartment having a bed bug issue.
I went in to change our sheets, and OMG there were these little nasty bugs every where, later we would find out our next door neighbor had bed bugs…eeewww it was not only gross, but to this day, I feel so creeped out looking under our bed….speaking of our bed we now have, it is nothing but springs, as it was here in the trailer, when we moved in.
Back to the tent situation ;-)
The tent we had was leaking due to several holes, which we did not have much choice in as it was donated.
We need ply wood, roof repair materials, skirting, we also need help with a bit of food and kitty food/litter.
I have a monthly check that is supposed to be going up, but as anything else, it takes time ;-( We live off of $500 a month, which is very hard, to do much on that.
We have bought the pipes to have water in the bathroom , for the first 6-7 weeks we had NO water that was hot, we had to bathe out of the same 5 gallon bucket , we wash our clothes in, and we are still washing to this day that way, it is to say the least , exhausting.
I am disabled, and suffer from Sarcoidosis, also have Cardio Myopathy with Ventricular Tachycardia, ptsd,(from former severe domestic abuse) plantar fasciitis, just so much I deal with daily.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated by my family.
Thank you for reading

Five months ago, a gaming account of mine was banned. For good reason. I had racked up $675.00 worth of in game purchases that I could not pay for. When the game realized that, my account was banned. I had a problem. I was in such a pit of sadness that the only source of joy was from this game. And the only real reason was because of the in game items. It made me happy to get new aesthetic items for my champions. It made me want to play better, and I did. I reached Diamond my first season. That made me happy.
But, I couldn’t really pay the $675.00. When it came time to, and I couldn’t, my account was banned. The only way for it to be unbanned is for me to pay the full amount back (understandably). Unfortunately, I am a student working a minimum wage job and saving up for an apartment, so I can spare no money to this. I’m sad, and it is my fault. I had an addiction. I couldn’t stop myself even when I knew it was wrong. After I would buy the in game currency, I would feel so bad. Regret it. Call myself stupid. But, of course, I would go back a week later and do it again. And again. And again.
There was some good from this, though. I started playing on a new account after it happened. I made a rule. To buy nothing. Just play the game. I’ve stuck to it. I got over my addiction for that feeling of instant satisfaction after buying something, and then feeling awful for the next week. I’ve grown. I’m happier now. Still, I want my account back, which is why i’m here. But, I’ve changed. I also don’t rely solely on the game for happiness now. I have other hobbies. I read and jog, I started playing other games (that I also don’t spend money on). I feel relief.
If you read this far, thank you. If you don’t feel like donating, that is fine. It’s not the best reason. There are more needed things out there. If you do decide to, thank you so, so much. I am still going to try to put a little money to the side each month eventually to go towards this, but any help will greatly speed it up and I will never be able to truly show my thanks.
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my donation request! My name is Jessica and I currently live in Los Angeles, CA.
I never thought I would resort to asking for money but that constant feeling of not being able to get ahead has been taking a toll on me for quite some time.
I need to be completely honest, I currently have a job with steady income. However, I have other passions that do not include my current career. I currently commute 25 miles (each way) to my job as the rent in areas closer to the office is not affordable ($2500+/mo). My field of work and distance to my job have been very stressful to say the least.
Why am I asking for help? My ultimate goal is to help others through fitness and personal training. I’ve obtained my personal training certification and am ready to begin changing other people’s lives. I strongly believe in helping other people by giving them the tools/knowledge to make positive, life-changing decisions and I feel like it is my purpose to do so. However, personal training needs to be a full-time commitment. I currently support one other person and have existing debt and zero savings – I cannot afford to take a pay cut to start a new entry-level career.
Receiving some assistance to pay down some of the debt would allow me the freedom to begin my career in a new field – one that will actually have a positive impact on others.
My wife is my life and I so desperately want to help her. She has a
debilitating condition, but never lets it get her down. She is so
full of life and love and always willing to help others. Yet, she
is the one so deserving of help. I so want to treat her, but I do
not have the finances to treat her in the way she deserves.
Her condition is improved significantly in warmer climates, but I
cannot afford to take her away. I have written a poem that sums up
my feelings. Please help in any way you can:
I don’t drink, take drugs, smoke or bet,
but multiple redundancies have burdened me with debt.
Health issues have not helped of course
and stupid mistakes fill me with remorse.
If I could invest in stocks, I would crash the market.
If I won a Ferrari, I’d have nowhere to park it.
But I am the world’s luckiest man in one part of my life,
that’s the love I have with my beautiful wife.
My wife is my life, my sunshine, my air.
With her in my life, I shouldn’t have a care.
But she has a chronic condition that breaks my heart.
I have to leave to work, though I can’t bear to be apart.
Being in the sun makes her feel better.
To a paradise island i would love to jet her
or, in an ideal world, have a place of our own,
retire, be together and never leave her alone.
I’m dreaming now, for I just cannot see
a day in the future where I will be debt free.
I rent my house, I finance my car
and, yes, I know there are people worse off by far.
I have a roof over my head and food on my plate
but to provide for our future, I need a clean slate.
I don’t want the money for myself, my needs are clear.
It’s for my wife and my son – everything I hold so dear.
So, if anybody out there offers the kindness I seek,
my hopes, my future, my life would be less bleak.
To clear my debts, to set me free,
to be the person my family deserve me to be.
Please help in any way you can
This was the year I was supposed to take my daughter and son to Disney World but plans were changed due to my sweet little girl getting really sick for about 3 weeks. I had to spend all of my savings trying to stay a float paying her medical bills and utility bills, rent and truck by myself. I am very blessed that she is okay and it was not as bad as what they thought. She is now doing better then ever and I’m greatful!! But now I feel like a failure to them because they deserve this and much more! I’m constantly working out of town leaving them and then now have nothing to show for it. I lost our apartment during this process and moved into my parents living room as well but they dont care as long as I’m there 💚. I am not wanting anything expensive the packages I have seen run about $2500-$3000 not including the way there but I am willing to drive from Texas to Florida. Any help is appreciated greatly from the bottom of my heart. I would also like to thank you just for reading my entry as well!
Hello! I am a 21 year old girl, I’ve always had a job and worked since I was as 16, everything I have I’ve worked for and I’m very humble and grateful for it all. I’ve moved out with friends a few different times and it has just never worked out, no one is responsible like they should be. I’ve been staying with my father for almost 2 years now, he lives with his girlfriend but allows me to stay at the house he owns, so long as I take care of his dogs and what not (which is totally fine, I love dogs) but the neighborhood is completely unsafe and his dogs are both aggressive and can jump over our fence, and m it has just become and extremely stressful situation for me. I want to move out of my town, there are no career opportunities and the whole place is just slowly running down, I don’t want my life to be sucked away with it and I don’t want to spend my whole life working in a factory, struggling to pay my bills every week. So I’m moving out of my town, I’m trying to a place that is about 40 minute away from where I am now, I’ve been saving up and buying supplies and what not for a few months now. But moving that far is hard, and I have to be prepared, I have no one but my myself. I’m also attempting to go back to school, which requires money!!!!!! I just want to succeed and reach the goals I have set for myself, and I want to be so much more than what has been set before me. I have never asked anyone for help money wise, but it’s time to set my pride aside and finally ask for help. My family cannot help me, they can barley take care of themselves. If you can’t help me, that’s okay! You taking the time to read this and showing support means so much already! But if you can, even a dollar will mean so much, and I will appreciate it with everything in me! I know everyone is struggling right now, but thank you to anyone willing to help!:)

I need money for my Pets and Family, because my sister is in a wheelchair and she wants a brand new wheelchair but I can’t afford it so I need a huge Donation towards that, I don’t only want to make her happy but for her to put a smile on her face for me and a smile on my face. There is no other ways of making her happy but the way she is now cause the only way for her to be happy is for her to get what she want and that is about $20,000 for the wheelchair and I don’t have the cash for it right now and this is my only solution. My pets have stuff wrong with them as well one broke there legs and I need money to fix there legs which is about $800 the other has a brain problem ($500) cause he use to get beat by his other owners and I want the best for him unless you want me to let my dogs get put into the situation in becoming brand new shoes for the future which I don’t want and neither do any of you out there… So please help me in this situation and the only thing about this problem is i am so broke it is hard to find a life out of it trying to pay bills and having her want this new wheelchair. Thanks you guys! You’re awesome!
Hello, I am posting this because although my daughter got into a top-tier university, my family will struggle to accommodate to all of the financial expenses. I am asking for money to go towards transportation (the school is all of the way across the country), books, and supplies. Any way you can help is appreciated. She is salutatorian of her high school class, and does a lot of community service. She’s on the team at her church giving food out at the food pantry. She works with the children church and dance worship team as well. She is a team member at her school afor Student Govt. she also started a pay it forward for the homeless on March. 3 2017. I know she will continue with the same pattern in college. I’ve done the best I could do as her parent who is disabled. I do struggle physically and from time to time I pushed myself to work part time after a 18 yr stretch of work and became ill with copd and diabetes. My daughter had heart issues for many years until she was operated on and she has come a long way. God kept her. Her major is Journalism and she wants to be on the team for world peace. Great child and deserves the best. Funds limited.
My name is Brian. I live in Joliet Il.. I am a white male, 39yrs. old, 6’2″ tall, 230lbs.. I am a father of 4 very great children. A professionally trained carpenter averaging $70-80,000 a year, and a man with dreams and goals!
My family, we all deserve so much more than I can afford to give them.
I am the sole provider for my family (a Ms. i’d like to turn into Mrs., our 2 twin daughters, and our son). Not that there is a problem with that. I guess that’s the way I’ve made it into over the years. Why pay others to raise our kids. I am a giver surrounded by takers! I seem to see this more in life today, but the problem is hidden there….in giving. Sometimes you give too much for so long, that when its time for you? Its just not there. Seems ironic that I’m directly asking you to do just that, give. None the less, sometimes you can’t get to the next level without help.
I am asking for financial donations.
All of my bills are paid. I am a new homeowner. My credit is ok. I own 2 trucks that are 20yrs old. I own a 89 Harley Davidson. For the most part we have it. Every thing is right where it needs to be. That’s it though. No more. Been trying to save for ten years and being that as circumstances are, It just isn’t happening.
I will need to expand our home, as well as other projects; get married to this great woman, up-grade our standerd of living, purchase a family vehicle, demo, and rebuild of the garage. The same for the front porch stairs. The girls are in bunks in a small 10×10 room. The boy’s room is the same, our master bedroom as well, and one very small bathroom.
The dream is to add-on a second story to the home. Adding 2 bedrooms and a second bath. Give this girl the wedding she deserves, and our children need to see. Beautiful dress, flowers, and family. Buy a minivan. The floor in the garage has severe cracking and lifting. The garage was built with cinder block. The back half has sunk over 3″ and has taken some of the wall with it. I will demolish the building, and re-do the floor then rebuild it. The front porch I will bust out and re-frame then re-pour with concrete.
The goal is to keep on doing what I’m doing. Keep having the mindset of this is not good enough, it could be better. Give it my full attention. Keep furthering my education in my profession so that I eventually get the high paying jobs. Be married, have a nice home big enough, and safe to enter, have reliable tansportation.
I will pay it forward regardless of any help. I will still give before I get. I will put others before me. It’s a disease that I’m hoping that someone else has and has the resources to give.
I realize there are many who would say I’m blessed way beyond many of many others. I get it and understand that.
We all want more and this will help us get it. You get it and you give it. Please give@
I am seeking money in order to fund my future. It seems childish to call it a dream, however there are many things I have missed out on in my childhood due to family problems and the environment I grew up in. My family has never been rich, or even wealthy or well-off. My father was quite abusive both physically and verbally and he lost his job when I was around 10. During the time he was jobless, he attempted to start a business and ended up bankrupting our household. From when I was young, I had never done the things that ‘normal children’ would do: Watch TV, go on trips with family, play board games together, sport… the list goes on. Now as I am older, I realize how hard it is to do the things you want when you don’t have the money. I dream of going to Korea, Japan, Europe, America and all the countries in the world to sight see, attend concerts, get all sorts of odd jobs.
As I do not have the greatest family, I want to move out as soon as possible. However I do not have the money to buy or rent a home, which is why I am seeking for those who do have money to gift even just a little to me. Imagine you were in my shoes: scared, trapped, being held down for life and wishing to break free. Those who have, say, $100 thousand, $200 thousand, $1 million. It would not hurt to spare a little $100 or even more. To those who read my story and think, this person is lazy, and just wants money. That may be true, and I will not hate any of you who think that, but any sum of money would mean the world to me.

Thank you for reading.
I have been unable to work a normal job since our oldest son was born.. he was born not breathing and had to be revived twice.. we finally got to take him home on day four, but on day five he ended up back in hospital for jaundice, which is where we discovered he had a super super rare heart condition that only 0.2% of the population will ever get.. it’s called Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome, he was having SVT’s which is where his heart would race out of control (303 beats a min – equivalent to 5 beats a second, so with the stethoscope you couldn’t hear a beat just a constant sound) and only able to be shocked back into normal rhythm via an i.v line being put in his vein and administered medication to shock it back into normal rhythm.. this happened hourly, we lived in a parent room for 6 weeks @ Flinders while the doctors trialled different medication until we finally found a heart medication called sotalol that would control his heart condition.. we could only get it from flinders compounding pharmacy.. he had to have it every 12 hours..
The Road of life was chaotic to say the least…. when he was about 2 years old and in childcare I went to pick him up @ 5pm when I got there he was lying on the ground and he looked to be sleeping I asked one of the carers why he was laying there on the ground(while kids were running all around him), they said he got upset about 45 minutes ago, laid down and went to sleep.. so I went over to pick him up to find that he was unresponsive.. I screamed for an ambulance.. (I can still hear the sound of the sirens coming and the sound of sirens taking us to hospital).. he was in a comber for 8 hours.. the only answer we got was his blood sugar levels were 2. something (extremely low) they put it down to his heart medication causing his blood sugar levels to drop and he went into a low blood sugar induced comber.. the doctor said if I hadn’t got there when I did he would have died.. the staff at the centre had special training to care for him but they just left him on the ground.. this was the beginning of not being able to work as who could I now trust with my precious sons life.. only person who I had to help us was my mum, who struggles with her health.. our life basically revolved around our son.. Finally February 2015 the Womans and children’s hospital and HeartKids SA flew us over to The Royal Childrens Hospital in Melbourne to have the heart surgery Jake needed.. Because of the rarity of his heart condition there was only one paediatric heart surgeon in Australia who could perform the operation.. His surgery was the longest 4 hours of our lives.. I couldn’t bare the thought of loosing him.. I cried watching them wheel him away on a hospital bed, my other half, our youngest son Jaxson and I just paced the hospital corridors.. we were lucky, he came out the operation with everything looking good.. it’s been 2 years since his heart surgery and so far everything still seems to be ok..
Our youngest son Jaxson has a condition where he can’t have antibiotics because it attacks his bowels and can kill him.. Jaxson was just learning to walk, which was just after his 1st birthday when all of a sudden out of no where he wasn’t able to walk, he wouldn’t crawl, he would just lay on a mattress in the lounge room.. I just thought he was getting a cold and was lethargic.. until we went to Mums and she laid him on the ground to change his nappy, once she’d changed him she then turned him over and placed him on his belly and tried to get him to crawl.. he just started dragging his body along the ground with one arm.. he was paralysed down the left side of his body.. he had been on antibiotics (first time ever) and this had caused the affect of attacking his bowels and in turn paralysed him(this is when we found out he wouldn’t be able to have antibiotics).. he was like this, paralysed for 2 weeks in hospital.. and with that, not being able to have antibiotics, he hasn’t been able to have them prescribed even when he is really crook and so he has been admitted into hospital several times because his cold has turned into pneumonia..
As you can imagine Flinders has been like a second home for us.. My beautiful other half works unbelievable hours to be able to support us, he’s up @ 5am, leaves for work between 5:30-6am and doesn’t get home generally til around 5-7pm..
I cry just writing that brief description of what has happened over the last 10 years.. it’s an emotional thing.. when Jake was older and was in kindy, I was driving to pick him up, I passed this childcare near woodcroft shops (which wasn’t his kindy) there was an ambulance in their car park.. even though it wasn’t Jakes kindy just seeing ambulances in a childcare car park sparked emotions of nearly loosing Jake in childcare.. when I got to Jakes kindy to pick him up I was bawling my eyes out because it just bought back a tonne of emotions.. just seeing an ambo in the carpark of a childcare killed me.. I was pregnant with our younger one Jaxson at that time..
But another situation which is worse than that, it was about a year or so ago when I was picking Jaxson up from his childcare and I went to pull into his childcares carpark but I couldn’t pull into the carpark as there was 2 ambulances blocking the driveway.. I had to park up the road.. My heart raced with thoughts of something having happened to Jaxson, I ran with all my might into the childcare, when I got inside the childcare all the kids were grouped in the one room.. I then spotted Jaxson who was fine and I dropped to my knees crying with relief.. I asked one of the staff what was going on.. They said a 2 and a half year old little girl just suddenly collapsed in the play yard and a member of the staff had to start chest compressions on her.. by the time I was there they had a crew of paramedics working on her.. as I walked my kids back the car, still crying, I looked back over my shoulder and I could see the paramedics doing chest compressions on the little girl.. I then seen them load her into the ambo and take off.. the childcare centre closed for a few days out of respect.. That little girl passed away.. it turned out that the little girl had a heart condition that no one knew about.. This hit home real bad because if I hadn’t taken Jake back to hospital for jaundice when he was 5 days old, we may have not known about his heart condition either and we may have lost him, he could have been in the same situation as the little girl, but we were lucky enough to have found his heart condition and have it controlled.. Undiagnosed Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome can end in SCD (Sudden Cardiac Death) which is what I think happened with the little girl at childcare.. it was an emotional time.. I was offered counselling by the childcare centre..
I would love the chance to be able to get us out of debt and be able to buy a bigger house.. we have definitely outgrown our home and don’t see it changing anytime soon.. I can’t see myself having any spare cash for a very long time.. I want to be able to give our family a better life.. It’s been rough for the last 10 years, I just wanna be able to give my boys a better life.. They are truly amazing kids and my other half is absolutely one of a kind.. when it came to Jakes heart condition and all that life has thrown at us he has always been the one who held us together.. He deserves to have a better life too, not working every single hour and missing out on seeing our boys grow up..
I can’t wait to marry my best friend, when people say that someone is one in a million, Ben is the definition of one in a million.. I don’t think I could have coped without him.. He is the best father, everything he does is for his kids.. He doesn’t see the kids as being a job, where other parents are trying to organise time without their kids, Ben is organising stuff to do with them.. Normally with no money at spare he can make any day a fun family day out.. We make sandwiches, jump in the car and go and do stuff like ride our bikes at the bike park, walk up the road to feed the ducks.. Even when it comes to our honeymoon, he can’t stand the thought of being away without them, so we will be having a family moon instead.. I love that man more than words can say..
To be able to have a budget wedding is going to cost a minimum of $10,000.. If we could get any amount to be able to start the ball rolling I’d be forever grateful.. xxxx

In the tiny village of Ērberģe, is the perfect, small, stone built church – St Maria.
For several years the village has been fundraising to carry out significant and much needed essential repairs to this remarkable building, much loved by all who visit.
Over the last five years, 20000 eur has been raised from local events – a remarkable achievement in a settlement of 68 houses. 40000 eur has been gifted by generous donations from private individuals, and a further 17500 eur has been donated from grant funded aid.
The total repair costs are 100000 eur. We now therefore need to raise a vital 22500 eur to complete the fundraising and allow repairs to this building to be completed before further damage occurs.
We are on the final push of fundraising and as a result we are turning to the generous support of wider communities – committed to preservation, and to the maintenance of a small but significant piece of living Latvian heritage – to assist.
Im very thankful for your consideration of our cause, and we are personally grateful for all the help and pledges that you are able to make.
Thank you & God bless You!

Having found my passion is for mechanical work, I immediately realized I want to build custom choppers and large expedition type vehicles for a living. It has taken too long to fight through numerous hardships along the way and my people and family are hurting. I have got to get the shop built and producing now not in five years after more struggle. I have a location chosen and need the capital for the foundation and a fairly inexpensive steel building although it will need adequate security, fencing and equipment. It’s going to require 450,000 bucks to build it and to acquire some refurbish able motorcycles/choppers and military surplus vehicles and stock materials to begin fabrication immediately. After smooth operation for awhile I want to start building some fully custom rvs and motor coaches. I have the vision, the skills and the motivation. My family is really counting on me to make their quality of life better. My dad’s a veteran and my Mom is a flower child. They are all American and I am born and raised in San Diego. Please believe me this did not come to me last night. It’s been formulating for the last fifteen or so years as I worked my tail off for all kinds of employers to no avail. They just won’t pay. I cannot just flounder and die. This must become reality within the next year or two. I studied architecture, drafting, CADD, welding, diesel tech, and built several motorized bicycles and serviced and repaired domestic and import cars and trucks all through my five years full time at Palomar College San Marcos CA. I am a very sharp mechanic/tech and I have the artistic visions to compete with the best and make a name for myself. Trust
Hi, my name is Henrik, I’m a student in Sweden. I live with a friend in his apartment, he’s a childhood friend of mine and he took me in when i lost my part-time job and could no longer afford the rent in my old apartment. He doesn’t struggle financially, even with me feeling like a no-good leech until i find a new job, but he can’t afford much other than rent, food, etc. I am constantly searching for a new job, even if they are just short-term or not-so-well paid, I just want to give some relief to my friend who’s always been there for me, and everyone else in his life. He’s always been the most supportive and generous person I know, sometimes he even invites strangers who needs a place to sleep for the night.
I think my friend deserves something nice in return, however, since my income is very limited at the moment, I come here for a little bit of help.
Just a few days ago I found out that the only other country he has ever visited was Denmark(Which is basically the same as Sweden, except flat), I want to raise as much money as possible for a vacation somewhere for him. Every little bit helps as the destination isn’t picked yet, the amount raised will determine where and for how long his vacation will be.
my name is Shamia and I am a 26 year old who needs a push in the right direction. I have had my ups and downs and have been through a lot in my lifetime.
I am not here with a sob story or traumatic event. I come completely transparent and as honest as I can be. I am currently living in a house with no power and on the verge of coming completely apart. I have been living in this house since December. And its just very depressing but motivating everyday to get up and keep pushing to make better days for myself.
I was working as a cab driver but unfortunately I got robbed after month of working there. I quit and now I just got hired as a seafood clerk at a local grocery store. I want better for myself and I am looking for every angle possible to get there.
I did attend college for a semester and I truly enjoyed it but due to my circumstances its hard for me to focus and do the best I can academically. I want to go to school and get my degree and finally give my family something to be proud of me for.
I realized a path to a better life starts internal. So I have been going to counseling for mental health help and I have been more self loving. My life has been based on trying to make others happiness even if it means sacrificing my own and I am completely fine with that. I am the most giving and loving humanitarian you will ever meet. I just get in my own way and mess things up but I always learn from my mistakes and try again.
I will never ever be a quitter. Right now I am looking for help to get my name back in order so when it is time for me to move and I have saved up enough money I can move worry free.
I have a BGE thats just under $4,100. I was evicted in October of 2014 and even after multiple request of having the power shut off it never got cut off and I was continuously billed.
I have been looking for places that are utilities included because of this reason. I will only be making $9.25 a hour and I will not be able to leave my situation anytime soon with that huge bill. Even if the bill is paid directly to the company I would be tremendously grateful, I dont have to have money directly sent to me. I really just want that bill paid to give me a fresh start.
A peace of mind calms the soul and thats all I really want. Having your own home provides that. After all my mistakes and irresponsibility I look back and I am ashamed of how many opportunities I blew because I was not grateful and didnt fully understand what I had. I was so immature.
Hopefully, I will be able to get the help that I need to help me move forward in my life so I will never reach rock bottom again. Its not about learning the lesson BUT about how many times you have to learn before you actually get it…and this time I do. I never want to live like this or experience this ever again.
Thank you for your time.
I’m not sure if anyone will read this or even want to help me. I’m married and raising 2 kids. My almost 2 year old daughter and my 7 year old nephew . I work hard and I’ve always worked hard, but it seems sometimes that I’m a hamster just running in a ball and never getting anywhere. I wish that I could be a stay at home mom, but I’m the breadwinner in our house. My husband is a stay at home dad. We’re struggling right now, I was working 3 jobs 7 days a week, however working all the time wore me down. I’m now working 2 jobs, but we’re still living pay check to pay check and there are often times when we run out of money to pay bills or to buy groceries. Anything you could provide to help we’d be very appreciative of it. Often campaigns asks for an amount and that’s hard for me to say, it’s hard for me to even write this as it is. I really can’t think of an exact number as really anything would be more than I expect and will help us. I mean I’d love to have someone pay off my student loan debt or even my house so I wouldn’t have a house payment anymore, but that seems like asking for way too much from strangers and I’m sure there is someone who needs it more than myself. However, if you can donate something it would help. My dream is to pay off my student loans, credit card debts, and my house. If I could do that I could actually become a full time stay at home mom and trade places with my husband.
I don’t want my work or friends and family to know because I’m embarrassed because it feels like no matter how hard I work I can’t seem to get ahead. I want to be able to enjoy life and be there for my kids and for them to not have to worry about the things I’m having to worry about with money and bills. I want to craft things, I want to write a book, draw, continue to excel at writing poetry. There are so many things that I want to do, but I spend so much time working and life is so very short. I’m afraid that if I ever succeed in my goals it will be too late for me to enjoy it and I will have missed out on so much. I want to live and I want to love abundantly and I want to share abundantly.
Anyway, Thank you for listening.
First, I want to Thank You for taking your time and putting faith in me needing your help, because I do. In return, I am willing to give you back the same undivided attention whether it be face to face or just a phone call so you can feel assured you’ve done the right thing, for the right person. I’m on a mission and I need to be able to help myself so that I can help others efficiently effectively. Not in a way they think they deserve but in a way they rightfully deserve, even you. Lastly, what I’m asking is enough to get a ticket to Texas to meet Joel Osteen, shake his hand and meet his Wife because I know they’ll be able to help me. I came from a Mom who has Loved me unconditionally that never had much of anything materialistic to offer from a bloodline that never had much of anything either. I am to be 21 years old October 1st, as of this moment I own nothing but the good looks God gave me and the smile on my face and I say that whole heartedly to tell you…Starting with me, I’m going to cause Love to dissipate Fear. I am Happy, Healthy, and in Love with Life and I believe my Worth is my Wealth. Again, I want to Thank You for your time, please know anything is everything to me cause it’s going to make me able to do what I need to. My motto is “Live for Love or Die in Fear”. God’s blessed you…get it? :)
I am taking depression medication to keep me numb to the facts of my heart desires. I’ve talked to my doctor about why I’m depressed. He is safely waning me off my depression medication and counseling me on my issues.
I am a 53, I will turn 54 in June. I’ve been a full-time Substance Abuse (SA) Prevention Coordinator for about 16 months. I am very grateful for my job. However, my situation started back in 2011 when I lost my job, and my financial situation took a left turn. I’ve always been self supporting before that time. My financial situation really went sour in 2013 when I worked for an agency that told us in September that would be our last pay check, because we didn’t receive the grant that we were working under, because the new health reform required everyone to have insurance now and there was not a need for free SA counseling program. So once again I was unemployed for another six months of which I was only able to receive 3 months of unemployment benefits due to a change in state unemployment laws.
I wasn’t able to complete my master’s degree in SA Counseling, and I learned I owed bigger financial giants. This is basically why I can’t purchase my home. Because I owe my school loans, medical bill, and various billis.
I am at the end of my rope here,I don’t know where else to go and honestly as I type the tears won’t stop. I’m here asking,begging for anything. It started with a dumb idea to trust someone online. I was just out of highschool and this girl wanted me to move in that I knew over the internet. Long story short I was eating tablescraps and sleeping on a floor by the end of the year. My family saved me by having me move back in. I had a job but was fired after three years by some jerk who hated a young guy working with his stocking team,and the jerk left my personal information out on the desk in the main office for everyone to see,of course soon my identity was stolen and money gone. Then I had another job,but broke my leg,causing me to be out for months. Then I broke my arm causing more issues and stress with work. Finally with the pain in my arm and leg,as well as my current weight problem, it’s been hard to work without even needing pain pills almost all day! My family has been nice enough to let me stay long as I clean and do house work wile working to lose weight,as well as my fiancé sticking with me for all these hard years. Now my father is getting on in age and needs many hospital visits,my mother and sister work for the city hard as they can,and with the death of my mother-in-law as well as more members of my fiance’s family all she has left are her depressed grandmother and a father who won’t ever stay home. Causing her not only to be out of work to stay and care for her grandmother,but for us to push back our wedding plans so far it may never happen. I want to help my family more then just keeping up the house and watching them suffer just to try and keep up with the bills,but with all these medical bills,high insurance costs,and the fact we have a family of six to keep fed and under a roof,I’m looking for anything I can find. I’m not expecting anything from this honestly,I just wanted to get something out there,something to give me a little bit of hope as I keep pushing myself to get in better shape for the ones I love. Thank you for reading this,and may you be blessed. paypal.me/RobertL911
Thank you for giving people the opportunity to post their needs. Today I humbly request a startup, which I actually do intend to pay back. Here’s my situation in a nutshell.
I used to work for WIS (inventory), however we moved (very complex house theft situation, still in court), we ended up in a motel and finally landed a rental… Work’s scarce around here in the Cal High Desert, so in the mean time I’ve got some nifty goods to sell! I have a printer, a plotter and a heat press. T-shirts are the way to go.
Sadly my sewing machines are toast. The first one was knocked off the work table by some nosy visitors and the second one malfunctioned (which Kmart never replaced). I do quite a bit of sewing work, not super professional, but satisfactory. Lolita dresses and other things.
I spotted a very unique combo sewing/embroidery machine, however it costs $1600. It is listed as malfunctioning (however it is easily repairable, trust me, it’s an alignment fix). I was in the process of buying it with paypal credit ($66 for 24 months), however it was flagged as suspicious due to it’s price point and I never got it. See, if I can get someone to spot me here and actually purchase the machine (yes outright purchase it, if possible, don’t donate money to me, unless that is the only way) that way you will know that the money is indeed going toward its intended purpose, then ship it to me. Then I humbly request that you bill me $66 a month for 24 months, just like the paypal credit, no more no less.. This is the best I can do.
Do take note that I did post a GoFundMe page regarding this a while back, however it has gotten zero attention so I will close it up in about a week. So as a short recap, please either donate the cost or simply outright purchase this machine for me and ship it, and then bill me for 24 months at $66. I am including the link to the item at the bottom of this page.
So what is so unique about this machine? Why it? This machine outputs unique Mario patterns as well as some other Japanese exclusives. They are pre-licensed patterns so you can sell your creations. This is NOT a toy! This is not for fun and games. This machine and its patterns will give me the edge to get back up on my feet and generate some much needed income. Since the patterns are unique, (nothing like them sold on ebay or swap meets) they are sure to catch the eyes of customers. I will also include an image and a link to the listing if that helps.
Thank you again, and best wishes all.
I gave birth to my beautiful daughter exactly 13 months ago. She is my world, but my pregnancy really took a toll on my body. I had complications and was put on bed rest my last trimester, and one month after birth because I was a high stroke risk. I gained 90 pounds. With hard work and dedication to my diet and exercise, ive lost all the weight! Unfortunately, my boobs are completely ruined. This probably sounds weird, but since I first had my boobs grow in, they have always been my favorite body part! They gave me so much confidence and made me feel beautiful. Now that they are completely flattened, it has depressed me greatly. I hate looking at myself naked and I don’t feel sexy anymore. I work very hard am a business woman, but I’m only a year in, so there have been a lot of business expenses and I’m barely making ends meet, let alone save up for a boob job. Unfortunately, my business depends a lot on how well I can sell my products and when I feel so self conscious about how I look, I can’t sell with confidence, which makes my customers shy away from me. It’s a vicious cycle. Please help me get my confidence back! My goal is to reach $5200 which would cover everything for my surgery. If you also felt so kind, an extra $1200 would cover the bills I would need to pay while I recovered from surgery.
I simply write this request because I have no other solution. I am a 28 years old guy who’s about to finish his academic studies. I have been diagnosed with a mental disorder few years ago. I have worked hard in construction and physical work to pay for my college bills, although It is not allowed for me to work in many fields according to my psychiatrist.
I love my family, and most importantly I love my fiance. I had trouble with ex-relationships, mostly been rejected by many girls for many reasons, my mental disorder wasn’t helping to the point I considered other solutions than medications to overcome depression. I do not want to mention such ugly period of my life and I would like to forget my past, but finally I found the love of my life who would accept me for who I am. She loves me and would love to spend the rest of her life with me and I wish I could do that. We’ve been together for about a year and she makes me smile every time I look into her eyes. She’s cute and lovely, I am blessed to have her in my life. However, I am afraid I might lose her if I don’t become “committed” as I should, that’s how things go in my town. Her father wouldn’t accept a guy who isn’t committed to marry his daughter. I need to work hard, and by hard I mean 24/7 in order maintain a healthy relationship. Start working on our future house and plan my next five years accordingly. I am suffocating from all the bills I have to pay, including my college fees, my own pocket money, my ill mother, spending money on my relationship and dates, building my future house, and paying for the current apartment. I have a half-time job at a local store, and I hardly pay for my survival. I am desperate and in need for help. I would like to thank whoever is willing to help me and my fiance in keeping our love safe. May God bless you and I am sure you will get your pay back sooner or later. Please, if you are willing to help do not remain anonymous. Please contact me and let me know who you are. I want to thank you in person, and maybe invite you to my wedding if you would accept. May your beloved ones stay safe and close.
Thank you in advance.
Hey there, My name is Josh Pedersen.
I am 19 and was born with Spina Bifida. Three years ago I had a life-impacting surgery that resulted in me becoming paralyzed and I will have to use a wheelchair for the rest of my life.
I am raising money so that I can purchase a handicap-adapted vehicle, either a small truck, SUV or Van. I am looking for a vehicle that is no more than 3 years old due to reliability and maintenance.
Having my own vehicle will give me the freedom to be able to attend a community college, get to my doctor appointments and pursue getting a job. Oh, yea, and ask a girl out for a date, (kidding not kidding).
Now that I have completed my drivers Ed I’ll need a vehicle to practice in.
The reason that I need 12k is to cover the costs: vehicle purchase, licence and registration; 1 year in Prepaid Insurance and getting the car fully adapted. All donations will be kept in a separate account until time of vehicle purchase.
I am eternally grateful for any contributions made, no matter how small .
I am a beauty Therapy student who can pay back in beauty tips and advice! 🤣
I have been having a rough go of things the past few years and I am finally getting back on my feet. I’m a 20 year old girl who I believe is meant for a kinder world, not saying that in a stuck up kind of way but I’ve been pushed around a lot because of my softness. I’ve never asked anyone for help and this feels strange to me but…
life can be an absolute b*tch and spreading kindness and love is my favourite thing to see and do ☺
Well I don’t know if you want to hear my story but I’ve never had much and I’ve been suffering with my mental health the last 2 years which has held me back in many ways. I am going through CBT at the moment and I have gotten myself through a very dark time when I thought I didn’t want to live anymore. I’ve had a very turbulent childhood with a let’s say “not so nice” father, but I’ve finally gotten away from him and I can feel myself growing and not feeling afraid anymore! I also got my mother away from him which has made her life and my life so much better, i have finally gotten to see her true self and she’s now living life to the fullest whereas before she was living under rule and was never truly happy.
Any way the reason I am asking for help is I got a chance to go to Amsterdam with my friends and I jumped on it! I haven’t been away in years and I would love a break for a few days. We’ve paid for the flights, I have half my accommodation money put away but I’m struggling to make up the rest and spending money. We’re going on the 20th of this month so in 9 days.. it’s probably too late and you probably won’t even see this in time but I said to myself I’d try any way. What’s meant for us won’t pass us :)
It would honestly make me so happy and it would restore my fate in humanity to get any help as the world has been such a crazy place lately. I hope one day If I’m in a position where I have some extra cash I’ll be able to help people be happy too.. if you do help me I will certainly pay it forward.
Thank you for reading I hope it didn’t bore you. ☺
Thanks again for your time,

I’m a special needs teacher who is coming up on her final year of teaching to return to school full time in persuit of becoming a physician assistant. I’ve been setting aside a fair amount of my paychecks to cove the costs of grad school applications as well as cover rent after the school year ends. I have been taking classes the last 3 years while working full time to complete prerequisites needed to even apply for PA programs. I’m finally at a place where I’m able to apply as a qualified applicant! I still have a few classes I’ll have to take over the summer, but that won’t hold me back from applying for schools. Now, here’s the reason I’m writing this post. At the end of the school year, first week of June, I have to return my work laptop to the district. Giving the laptop back is going to render me without one, which makes me nervous because one of the classes I’m taking over the summer will be online. The money I’ve been able to put into savings will not be enough to cover a computer as it must be used for what is essential to my future-paying for grad applications and paying rent. I can’t afford a laptop and could use the help to get one. Please help me continue on with my future goals!
Hello beautiful people. I am just in over my head. And I feel awful for having to resort to this because I normally don’t reach out for help. I’m usually the one helping others. I have prayed and just asked for help for the first time and life just doesn’t seem to want to help the one who helps everyone else. In any case, here is my story. I am struggling with life more than I ever thought. I have two credit card balances – one of which I posted. The other one is just under $3000. I suffer from costochondritis which is a painful inflammation of the chest wall and the symptoms often mimic the pains of a heart attack. So needless to say on top of these credit cards, I have many medical bills – I believe they all amount to a little over 2 grand. AND on top of THAT, my car is about to give out. My car needs many fixes and I’m debating just selling it and leasing a car to help get me through but that would be adding yet another payment onto all the other money I’m putting out there. I have tried so long to believe that life is not just about paying bills and then dying, but that is what it seems like I have fallen into. My chronic depression and anxiety also does not help the situation and the doom and gloom feelings are always there. My job does not pay nearly enough to support me and at the rate I’m going, I’m going to crash and burn quicker than I can pick myself back up. Asking for help like this is not who I am, I don’t like to ask for help unless I know I can pay back what I receive. My father was always one to encourage me to keep my karma in proper alignment and I think I have just reached the point where I finally need to ask for some kind of help. If my story reaches just one person out there who would be willing to help a begging soul, I will have considered this a success. Even if I only receive $1, it’s better than nothing. I am sorry to be coming to all of you like this but I just don’t know where to turn. Debt consolidation and debt relief options don’t seem viable and I can’t seem to get myself to put trust into that considering there are so many shady companies out there that just try to put you into a deeper hole. My wish is just a little bit of help. Thank you all for listening. And God Bless you for your charity. My

My name is Hermanah and thank you in advance for taking the time to check out my story. I am a hard working person who just happens to be stuck in life whichever way I turn.
I am from Haiti and was brought to the USA by my father back in 2000. I went to high school in Tennessee graduated and had a baby on the same day back in may of 2004, then went on to college in August. Majored in respiratory care sciences and graduated in 2010 then went out to the world to serve. While I was in college with a baby I wasn’t able to work two jobs, I could only do enough to support myself and the baby. Being the oldest out of 4 children on my mother’s side I had to take responsibility to care for them since they were left in Haiti. I took out school loans to help support my family back home, to feed them and shelter them and eventually after graduating from college I worked as hard as I could and brought my mom and my brothers here to join me. Unfortunately once they got to the US, they had to work and go to school and have their own lives and now I am stuck with the loans and have to pay them all myself.
I met a man from Haiti married him and now we have 4 kids together. It took us two years to conceive our first child together because he was living in Haiti and I was here in the States, then after the second child we decided that she would need someone to play with and we should try for one more and to our surprise we ended up with a set of identical twins naturally.
As a respiratory therapist I work full time which is three twelve hours a week, and work nights. I make about 30ish a year. My husband who has a bachelor in marketing from Haiti is now a housekeeper at a hospital making 20k a year since his credits from Haiti were not accepted in the United States; therefore he has to school all over again for something else. I used to work two jobs or at two different hospitals 6 nights a week before the babies but now that they are in our lives and deserve to be loved, I cannot do that anymore plus we cannot find anyone to keep them for us to go to work; therefore we are having to split work hours in between the two of us and child care is too expensive for 3 tiny babies who are 2 and 1 year old.
We bought a small house with 1200 square feet and after the babies it was crowded and too small and the area was getting bad for us, we had to sell it right back and move in with my mom with 4 children in her apartment. We would love to purchase a nice size house since the babies are now walking that way they will have plenty of rooms to play safely. We have the worst car luck and cannot afford a brand new car, I have used my 401k and bought a 2008 Toyota Highlander cash for 9000 dollars just for it to crash engine and transmission both went out together within 5 months of driving it, bought it as is no money back no warranty. Then I had to go to work so we bought a small Toyota Corolla for 2000 again to finish the little savings we had then 3 months later that one too broke down. Just started a full time job after having the babies do not want to risk losing my job; therefore I became a Lyft driver and get a car through them with hertz where I have to give a minimum 20 rides a week and pay them 209/week for the car and I get to drive it for personal use too. More tome away from the babies but hey..
with everything that we have going on, 3 babies in diapers, no cars, waiting to buy a house again, trying to save, we have a total debts of at least 65 thousand that include 54 of school loans with interest over 8 years and hospital bills from when I didn’t have insurance then little loacal desbts. Never had a wedding, but since my mom wasn’t married to my dad and never had that chance to get married in life it is important to me to let my daughters see me and their dad getting married and set a beautiful example for them. My kids can be my flowers girls and bridesmaids, but clearly I don’t see how this wedding ever going to happen.
So sorry of this long long letter, I figure if I am going to beg I will be as transparent and detailed as possible for you guys to see why I desperately need help. If I can get 100,000 dollars I would feel like a billionaire. It will cover my student loans and debts, buy a family truck ,put some money down on a house for my children and have a little wedding. Then we can work to stay off debts and maintain our lifestyle with the money we make from working. The level of stress is so high that it affects me and my husband’s relationship, we get frustrated easily at each other lately and I love him dearly, please help us and thank you may your wealth be multiplied times 20.

Hello everyone, my name is Nicha. I am a 16 years old girl graduating in class of 2019. I am an aspiring nutritionist/dietician trying to go out-of-state for college, possibly either NYU or University of San Diego. I’ve done my research and it seems they have great programs for my study. I know it is a long shot, a small town girl living in Texas trying to hit the big city for school, but it has been my dream ever since I was a little girl!
I’ve always known that I wanted to take care of people. My family doesn’t have the greatest history with health, one suffers from diabetes while another has liver problems… It’s been a struggle in my family, having no health insurance and living under one income. But my parents have always made sure that my 4 siblings and I got what we needed.
As a junior in high school, I do very well with a 3.8 GPA while managing a part-time job. I make sure that work does not interfere with my study. I have responsibilities such as my phone bill, car insurance, necessities, etc.. From the beginning of junior year, I’ve been pressured by my parents and counselors about where my life is headed after graduation. Of course, continuing school is the answer. I have gotten suggestions like community colleges or schools around the area. Although it would be much less expenses, it is not my dream.
I’ve applied for financial aids and scholarships, I even have a savings account. But sadly, that is just not enough. Tuition fees + Living expenses + Textbooks, it’s a whole lot of money. So with that being said, I would be greatly appreciative for your donations! Anything counts, whether its $1 or $5. And if you’re not able to donate, that is totally fine, but wishes towards my goal would be appreciated!
My paypal is www.paypal.me/nichasrisauy if you are able to donate. Thank you so much again!
How did I start this without sounding too needy and not make this story like a typical lifetime movie scene? Well I’m gonna start by introducing myself. My name is Raul García and Im a recent grad from Le Cordon Bleu. Food is my life. Food is the reason I wake up to every morning because I always surprise myself when I cook, it’s my therapy to say the least and I got the inspiration from my beautiful and amazing grandmother who lives in Mexico. I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to attend due to the fact that I’m a veteran from the U.S Army and we get the bestI survived two tours in Afghanistan which didn’t even think I’d be back alive from the second one. Won’t get into details But I’m 70% disabled and even though I suffer the most from PTSD, TBI and Severe Anxiety, I haven’t allowed that to crush my dreams. Its hard to wake up in the morning when you have insomnia all night but continuing to go to school graduate with a 4.0 and being accepted to attend a Michelin star restaurant in Spain for my externhio has made me feel like I can accomplish everything, even through panic attacks I do have the best family in the world who are proud of what I’ve done in life and my little siblings who look up to me as their idol but we just don’t have the means to continue my journey which is why you’re here to find out on. I want to continue to make my siblings be proud of me and have them see me have success because they’ll grow up wanting their own dream come true instead of thinking the impossible.
My dream is to be able to travel and explore the cuisine of Peru, India, Oaxaca (Mexico) and Thailand’s and one day open a Catering Company. Me wanting to travel to these countries will be to allow me explore local ingredients and experience the rustic side of how beautiful food is and how the gastronomic world is in certain parts of the world and take that to serve the best food I can give my customers in the future. Not necessarily to go and have fun even though researching what I love is fun for me . Those four countries I mentioned have the best cuisine in my opinion and the most interesting so I know that by traveling there and learning new recipes and ingredients will make my chef’s dream come true . A caterIng company that not just caters to Chinese, Mexican or Italian customers or solely just one but at a worldwide scale. I want a Worldwide cuisine catering company in San Diego because it’s a mix of cultures and we don’t care if you’re a certain race or how bad your accent is. Its a town free of discrimination and I live for that.
Im struggling financially. After going to Afghanistan twice and Spain and part of taking student loans even though I had 80% of gi bill well I’m in a hole
I hope my dreams come true and gives me the opportunity to learn more about the culinary world and not just rely on education benefits which I already used up completely. Want to prove myself that a disability or a mental issue can’t help you from becoming great but it can help you become stronger to stop negativity and giving yourself permission to free and open your mind to opportunities.
Thank you guys.
Hello everyone, I am and 19 year old who has recently wen out on her own to figure out herself and the rest of the world. I recently moved out to what is known as paradise itself, Hawaii. Since moving to Hawaii I have learned many things about “being an adult” and one of the things I have learned is you will absolutely live paycheck to paycheck. I am here asking for help to visit back home. I am originally from Georgia and I have a few friends graduating at the end of may that I’d like to see walk the stage. I also have some family members I need to see including, parents, siblings, and grandparents. I have a few friends who are welcoming children or have already that I have not got to meet. If any one would like to help out and get a round trip from Honolulu to Atlanta would be great. I know there so much More to donate to but i wouldn’t be here asking if I wasn’t in serious need of help. Thank you to all that took the time to read this and all who donate.
I am asking for donations so that I may take my husband on a weekend getaway in the city for his birthday. He works very hard to provide for our family, and I cannot thank him enough. We have been long distance for most of our relationship, through dating, being engaged, and married. I haven’t been able to spend a birthday with him in over four years, and I am hoping to make this one special. My plan is to take him to the city (about three and a half hours away) and get a hotel for two nights. I would like to take him to a nice restaurant, the zoo, and Dave and Buster’s or something of the sort. These are all things he loves to do, and I am hoping they will make his birthday weekend extra special. I would also like to buy some nice lingerie since I don’t own any, and maybe a few extra things to make “us” time extra nice. Also included in the amount is gas money, babysitter fees, food for the kids and babysitter for the weekend, and food on the way to the city, as well as maybe a movie rental and snacks for the hotel room. A bit about my husband: he is very outdoorsy, but also likes to waste the day playing video games. His favorites are Ark, Dark Souls, and Rainbow Six Siege. He is very much a family man and makes sure that our children have everything they need and more. Lately he has been very stressed because he is working so hard and we have a cross-country move coming up. All I want to be able to do is take care of him for a weekend the way he takes care of me and our children. I cannot tell you enough how much I love my husband, or how much I want him to have the best birthday ever. It makes me sick that I can’t do this all by myself. I am a full time stay at home mom and soon to be student, so I have no income of my own. All our time is spent worrying about the kids and our cat, so it would be very nice to be able to get away even for just the weekend. Pictured is a hotel that we have stayed at before, and it proved to be a very nice experience. I appreciate any donations I may receive and thank you for taking the time to read my request. https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/dwil125
My life is heading towards a dark path. I feel like I am wasting my time in college. My name is Max G J. I am a woman who is striving to become a computer programmer. The classes I am taking is stressing me out, and I feel like I spend most of my free time trying to catch up with work or studying for exams. And these classes are not even related to coding. I have had depressive episodes where thoughts of suicide came to mind. (Don’t worry I have a therapist and psychiatrist.)
The one class that is about programming is giving me materials I have already learned on my own. I was having so much fun learning on my own before… I made a mistake. But I didn’t have a job, nor can I get a job. I have social anxiety, which makes it harder for me being in college. But it is easier than having to confront people in person every day at a job. I like the idea of having a programming job since I don’t have to face people.
I want to have that passion I had when I started programming, but after three years of going to college, I seem to have lost it. The only thing stopping me is money. The only reason I went to college is so I can get a job after, but treehouse is offering a tech degree.
I used treehouse before and learned how to efficiently use python. I would be happy of taking any of those tracks for the degree. (Maybe except for iOS dev)
I also have some debt to pay off so I can get my own place. I made the mistake of trusting my mother to pay off my credit card when I was younger. She had also forced me to open more credit cards promising the same things. I want to get out of this place and become a programmer.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I would appreciate if you help me out with this.
I was born in Brazil and adopted from an Italian family. After 28 years I got to found my biological family.
Grown up as an only child I found to have 1 brother and sisters.
Life is hard because, by the way, I moved to Australia for work and I do not have the economical found to go and meet them.My only concern is to meet my brother which got closer to me so fast and me either.
Our childhood is too similar and he has a lot in his life as to be able to achieve more in the future.
I want to help him come to Australia but my first step needs to go to Brazil, meet him and legalize the relationship between us.
I need to do DNA test and talk with a lawyer.
Unfortunately, all of this need money which I do not have and I will not for a long time.
I wish someone would be in feel with my situation and help. Even a small amount can make a difference.
