My dad is 76 and my mom is 75 and I just want them to be able to really retire, and not have to work to have money for food or a road trip to visit relatives in our old hometown. I am asking for $75,000 so they can get a car and my dad does not have to work anymore.
My dad has worked hard since he was a very young child and deserves to just rest, relax, watch TV, go for drives, or do whatever he and my mom want. They don’t deserve to struggle to pay bills, or drive a car that is falling apart. I can see the pain when they have to ask for help, and it hurts my heart and soul deeply when we can’t because none of us kids really ended up in a position where we could.
I sit and cry every time I think of them struggling and wish and pray for something to happen so that they can live their retirement years without worrying or working.
Even with the lack of money my mom and dad still have a great Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner for us and she still manages to get gifts for my great niece and now great nephew. They have always put us kids, grandkids, and now the great-grand children before themselves and I just want karma to repay their kindness with a life of no worries and not having to set an alarm to get up for work at 77.
Can you help me to help them? I would give anything, anything at all to see them in a new car, traveling back to their hometown to visit old friends and relatives which they would love to be able to do and no worry about not having enough money to get there or have to get back quickly for my dad to go to work. They are the greatest parents in the world and I love them so much, I just want to see them happy, relaxed, and worry free.
I have attached a family picture. My dad is on the very right and mom is the 2nd from his left.
Thank you so much for all your help and kindness. It means a lot that my dad won’t have to work anymore, especially with his health.
