I moved from my fathers home when I was 16 years old. Three weeks after my 18th birthday gave birth to my son. My daughter came shortly before my 21st. I felt pressure from my family to stay with the father of my children as it was “the right thing to do” so, I married the father of my kids. He was abusive from the start but I made excuses for his behavior & after a time really believed most of the issues were because of something I did or didn’t do, either way, it was me. I stayed with him 21 long years. I always thought he’d change or “I’d get better”. Either way, leaving him was not an option. (so I thought at the time) I would never make it on my own, no one else would ever want me, I belonged to him. Exactly 1 year before I left I made a point to ask him nicely to please use my name instead of all the other names he like to call me. I asked him to just be nice to me but it seems that old habits never die. At the end of the 1 year period I packed a bag, put my kids & our dog in the car & we left. We stayed with family, friends, in our car & even stayed at some friends of my kids homes trying to start our new lives. Everywhere we went he’d find us & make things miserable for the people we stayed with. Restraining orders only made things worse. After almost 5 years he has finally given up. Now we are tired of running & so sick of moving. I would love to buy a home so I can finally plant my roots. More than that, a place that is in my name. No one can tell us to leave, or have to roll up sleeping bags daily. A place that we could be happy and just live. A place where we are respected, loved & treated equally everyday, under our own rules. My credit was ruined as an added insurance if I ever left but am working to repair that as well. We dont need a big house. A mobile home would be fine as well, even a “tiny house” just a simple place to call safe home.
I’m not sure how to start this. I am 25 years old. When I was 15 my mother was hospitalized and diagnosed with MS a year later my father was murdered then shortly after my grandfather passed away. I was left a small sum of money after he passed which I used to buy a house to live in which I still reside in to this day. I work as a home health aide and care for my mother and grandmother who are both sick. Due to bills and everything else I have yet to be able to save any money to start college to become a veterinary which I’d love it’s my dream job . I also need a lot of renovations done to my home but it seems every time I start to save towards fixing something small something major happens like me needing a new roof , if it rains you can literally see it come thru my dining room or kitchen ceiling. I know I could sell the house as is and just move on but I’d feel like I was losing a part of me. I’d love to fix everything wrong with the house and totally make over the inside and outside and transform it into the perfect home. Any little bit could get me started towards either goal of fixing my house or getting into school for a better career
I would like to appeal to your generosity and help me pay off my debts. Although I am working full time, it is hard to put away extra money for savings while I am trying to slowly pay off my debts and at the same time meet my monthly financial obligations such as rent/insurance/ utility bills/daycare while supporting two kids. I would very much like to be able to save up for a down payment for a small house for us, and this would be easier realized if you would be able to help me clear my debts. I am really hoping someone out there would be able to help me and my family realize our dream of having a home we can call our own.
Hello kind madams and sirs,
For as long as I can remember I have had a creative mind for art and fashion including dressmaking. I am my own teacher and student, as I cannot afford art lessons/courses.
Until now, I have minded every penny to buy even the most basic supplies. I hesitate even to buy thread and instead recycle thread from clothes I can no longer wear. I sew even tough and thick materials by hand, as I do not have a sewing machine. As you can imagine, my fingers would often be painful, develop blisters and sometimes bleed, limiting my progress of projects.
I am unable to ask my parents for help, for they have done so much for me already. As they are just getting by themselves, it would be too selfish of me to ask for anything more.
I am not proud of my circumstances and have had to contemplate my future many times as I was afraid and embarrassed to ask for aid. However, I do not wish to give up hope and see this as my only chance of pursuing my passions.
And so, I can only ask for a small gift that can provide me with a sewing machine and a body form, which to me would be the greatest gift, and will undoubtedly further my dreams.
Please help me get the wings I so need, I would be ever so grateful.
I am a 54 year old Cancer patient with needs to enrich my life.
I have a wish list that is pretty pricey but I could never afford to fulfill my wish on my own. I have spent the last 2 years in a recliner lacking the ability to get around. So far I have been diagnosed with Esophagus Cancer, Pre-Colon Cancer, Fibromyalgia, Degenerative disk disease, Chronic pain, Osteoarthritis of acromioclavicular joint, Radiculopathy of cervical region, Erythema ab igne, Low mean corpuscualr volume, Neural foraminal stenosis of lumbosacral spine, Gerd, Lacerated ulcer, and severe depression. I’m being tested for Breast Cancer, Lupus, COPD and a sleep disorder as I can’t sleep for more than an hour or 2 at a time. Doctors just tried to remove my cancer through a process called Endoscopic Ultrasound but were unable to because it’s now too deep in the tissue to remove. It took me 3 months to find a Doctor that would except my insurance. Now i have to fight with my insurance company to get authorization for an operation to try and remove it before having to resort to chemo. All this going on and Disability STILL does not consider me to be disabled. All I know is that I want to make the most of my life and having the ability to see something other than the 4 walls I’ve looked at for the past 2 years and the many Dr. offices I see on a daily basis. Fulfilling my wish list would enrich my life greatly. Thank you to my son that takes care of me, he cooks, cleans (sorta), and does my laundry along with attending all my Dr. apts which can sometimes be 2 a day and usually everyday of the week! If your financially able and would like to donate to a life changing cause it would be a wish come true for me! You can just click on the link below to see my list. If you can’t afford to purchase something from my wishlist then prayers will be equally appreciated and needed.
Thank you for reading!
P.S. If your only able to help with a small donation please click on the link below. Only small cash donations please as it’s not money I’m looking for. I really need the equipment in my wish list and intend to apply it to the purchase of these items. I would prefer you to purchase and item in your price range rather than receive any cash.
First off I’ve never asked for anything in my life so this is a first for me and I still don’t feel very comfortable in asking.
A little background on who I am amd what I’m asking for
I’m 53 years old and at this moment in time disabled and awaiting reconstructive surgery of the knee Extensor Mechanism after undergoing two failed knee replacements. That’s enough of the feeling sorry for myself.
Prior to this I worked as a Mental Health Nurse for some 18 years but ill health saw me being pensioned off on ill health grounds. I then set about being in charge of my own destiny and bought a magazine publishing franchise this however came abruptly to a halt when I had to undergo surgery which then led me to my current plight. I’ve started numerous entrepreneurial schemes but a lack of funds as seen fall by the wayside after spending almost every hour of the day trying to make it work at any costs.
Now all my savings are depleted but instead of feeling sorry for myself I’m looking positively towards the future at what I can achieve. What I need though is to speculate before I can accumulate amd it’s the former where I’m now sadly lacking.
I’ve seen a successful business opportunity for a Travel & Vacation Franchise, this is with a UK based company who are now at the forefront in the travel franchise business having successfully overseen a few willing entrepreneurs with their business venture. I know I’ve got the desire and passion to succeed in this field but sadly no longer the needs to fund it amd if anyone is willing to take a risk on along shot then please contact me.
It’s hard to know where to begin when asking strangers for help, especially when it’s not the most urgent thing. I have a hardworking grandfather who takes on as many craigslist jobs as he can involving house construction/repairs and yard work.
For the past few months he’s been getting stick more often and has been unable to work as well as he used to and has been staying in his trailer and resting more often than working. He hasn’t had the time to focus on his art for a very long while, I would like to see him be able to focus more on his art and be more healthy and relaxed as he ages. I am hoping to get him a Wacom Intuos Pro Paper – Large drawing tablet and help him get into digital art so he can make a little more money to live off of and be comfortable.
He’s given so much to my siblings and I and continues to give and be there for us when we are in need, I want to give something back to him to show my appreciation. The total cost of the tablet is $549.95, and I have enough so far to cover only $72 of that. I know it’s a lot of money to ask for and I feel guilty asking but he’s very important to me and I want to do something for him as soon as possible. Thank you to all who have read my message and I will be truly thankful to whomever gives donation, no matter how little or large the amount.
I have always been faced with barriers that stop me from starting things, for the last three years I’ve been trying to save money to buy a camera that could execute these video/photography ideas that I have in mind, however I managed to save nearly £300 for it to be spent on something entirely different due to my mental health issues taking over my life, I had to quit my job and make my mental health a priority. I’m currently recovering, I’m on new meds which is helping regain my life in and I’m currently looking for work to help better myself.
I have always had a passion for photography I currently own a really old canon powershot camera which I got off eBay a few years back but it’s far too broken and doesn’t focus anymore.
Photography has been a passion of mine for years, my mind constantly conjures up new project ideas that I can share with the world and maybe help record my journey of recovery with others who are in similar boats as I am, I want to help people whilst doing something I love.
I don’t feel proud of myself for reaching out to the internet for help but I cannot afford a luxury item like a canon 70d I’ve always had my eyes on, I have bills and rent to pay before I can even consider stressing myself out with going into debt because I want to make a dream of mine a reality.
It would honestly mean the world to me if I could get this canon 70d and fulfill these dreams of mine, I want to share my passion and love for photography with others, I want to help myself escape into the arts and explore my project ideas further, I would love to help others in the process with photography and videos by creating pieces that starts a conversation about mental health and the importance of looking after yourself mentally…
I will be so grateful to those who consider help me accomplish this dream of mine, thankyou for even just reading this.
A couple years ago, I bought my parents house. At the time I thought it would be right for me. But it still feels like my parents house. My parents want to move back but they want the house to be fixed but do not have the means to do so. It is a REALLY old house. Built in the 1920s. I for myself don’t have the means but I also want to surprise my parents with their house renovated and gift it to them. But for that to happen I would need money to renovate the house and also money to pay off my debt. I haven’t made wise decisions and wanting to persue dreams, it failed and Debt increased. If I could have $300,000 at least to do a extreme home makeover or if someone has the connections to have someone do it as a service I would be forever grateful. Of course I would also need my debt paid off to be able to gift it to my parents. Including my mortgage it would be a total of $200,000 to pay off my debt. That’s all I ask. I can work to save up and find a place of my own and continue to get back up and persue what I want to do in life. Thank you for taking the time to read. I appreciate it even if this is not granted. I still think it’s a great idea. :)
Hi there im a 28 yr old mum of 2 and I was in a mentally abusive relationship for 13yrs I was it down all the time and felt dead inside was diagnosed severely depressed with ptsd and anxiety disorder and I ended it just after Christmas. Before I split with him I’d become friends with an American man on a karaoke app called smule and we would just talk as friends and he was going through stuff so we were there just as someone to listen and do talk to, he told me he had been stalking my smule profile for a while but didn’t know how to talk to me ????. After a few weeks we found we had an awful lot in common and he finally asked me to be his girlfriend and I obviously said yes lol we have been together for 3 months now and I’ve never felt so loved and respected by someone….he makes me so happy I’ve lost all the weight I’d piled on over the years and feel good in my own skin he has helped me find my true self again and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I have fallen in love with him and he has with me ???? I would love to go over to America and meet him for my birthday in August but being a single mum I can’t afford to to save for a trip as the money I get goes on my kids…I’ve never been out of England nor have I been to my countries capital due to having no money. He can’t come to me as he is his moms carer and I respect that! My flight and hotel will cost around £1300 then I’d need extra from other expenses while I’m there so would like to raise £2000. If you could help me meet this incredible man so I can thank him in person for basically saving me and making me else whole again. Thankyou for your support i will be forever great full to any help in getting to meet him xx
My Fiance and I are planning our wedding. We have not decided on anything extravagant and chose all of the lowest priced options that we could find. Even doing this, we are still short on cash. We both work full time jobs and are saving every extra penny that we have, but with student loan payments increasing every year and my ongoing doctors visits for my gallbladder and thyroid, we aren’t saving enough fast enough. We have asked our families for help, but my father is currently in bankruptcy, my grandfather has medical bills stacked up to the ceiling from having cancer 4 times. My fiance’s father is disabled and goes to dialysis 3 days a week because he had to lose both of his kidneys to cancer and his mother only is paid very little, so they have their own money issues to deal with and can’t help us. We are not trying to plan a huge wedding with hundreds of guests, just a small wedding, less than 100 people, yet we are still short. We do not have any lavish plans with elaborate decorations or fancy musicians, but a very simple plan. After the past few years on endless doctors appointments, ER visits, and surgery (I have attached a photo of one page of the tests that I have gotten done. I have 3 more pages), I was really looking forward to having this special day, and I am trying everything in my power to make it happen. We are unable to get a credit card to put the extra cost on because of previous years of bad credit (we are working on it, it is partially why we don;t have a large amount of extra cash) and we cannot get a loan because we have too much student loan debt. Thankfully we have family that is going to DJ for us for very cheap and another friend who is going to do our photography as a gift. I even turned down the dress of my dreams for a dress that was on sale. We currently are seeking extra cash to be able to buy invitations and thank yous, finish paying off the venue, and to pay the church and officiant. Anything else that we cannot afford will be removed from the list and we will go with out. We are not asking for a lot, we just need a little bit of help. We are really in a difficult spot and we would appreciate any all all help that is given more than any words can describe. Thank you https://www.paypal.me/saraastefan
The house I’m raising my kids in is falling apart and getting overwhelming to work on. The front porch is leaning, the soffet is failing, the gutters are rusting, and windows are in bad shape! Some of the windows are just storm windows. Our neighborhood is full of junkies and thieves and we need out! We don’t have anyone to ask for financial support except for friends and they have their own kids to raise. I am 32 and I have a girlfriend, that I wish I had the money to get a ring for, to give her a proper wedding. We have a 3 year old daughter, a 6 year old boy, and a 14 year old daughter. I fell in love with my girlfriend and her 2 kids, the older ones mentioned above. We had one together and raise all three on our own. I work full time and she raises the kids. We just want to raise our kids in a nice quiet community without having to worry about keeping the doors locked 24/7. Where our kids can go to school where the parents are nice and not rude because we are clean people. Our home has one thing after another going wrong and I cant keep up after buying food, clothes, groceries, and paying the bills. We keep our lights on and we are responsible but we have been having issues saving enough money for a down payment on a new home. I’m desperate to find a nice area to raise my beautiful family in. If you can spare a few dollars to help us we will be forever grateful and more than willing to stay in touch. If you don’t have plenty of spare money please do not donate but feel free to keep us in your prayers and blessings. Thank you all so much for your time.
Hi, my name is Christian, Recently Me, as well as my family, have been suffering financially as I am doing my best to provide. I have no extra money to spend what’s so ever. it’s either going towards gas, rent, utility or sometimes food I have been working 10-hour shifts at my job to provide rent and help pay the utility bill and other stuff that contributes to keeping are home at afloat. Which is already taking a toll out of my pocket. My mother doesn’t work because she is currently unemployed because of her hernia. And we don’t have a father to help out. I have been trying my best to step up to the plate and provide as best as I can but it is very difficult to take care of multiple people at 18 as well I’m going to put myself through school as soon as I can which is going to require me to cut my hours. I’m trying not to complain as much as I can but like I said it is very difficult. And my sisters birthday is coming up and I want to get her something that actually means something that’s going to actually have a purpose since she’s turning 12. And since her bed is completely broken I really want to get her a good bed to sleep on because she never really had a good bed. I’m not gonna sit here and ask for 100,000 dollars for a bed, no all I really need is 200$ and I’m good. It would be greatly appreciated in every way, you would be doing an amazing favor for me as well as my sister and taking a HUGE weight off my shoulders. Any contribution in any way is a blessing, Thank You.
I am student from a small country in Europe. I am just finishing my first year of college and I was promised to get a trip wherever I want to if I do well at university. I have been trying really hard and looks like everything should be fine. So I have told my parent that I would like to go to London. London was always my big wish to see. I have asked my friends if any of them would like to join me on my trip and three of them accepted. And then we started to plan our adventure.
This September I will be going to London with three of my friends for one week. We have everything sorted out, the flight and the apartment. We are travelling with low-budget company and have found our apartment over Airbnb. All of this cost us as ridiculous as 300 euros per person. Remember, my parents are paying for this part. I think we did pretty good job so far in saving money.
I have heard many times that London is a really expensive city. However, I didn’t put much thought to it. Once I have started discovering the city and the prices, I was lost for words. I guess it isn’t that expensive for the people coming from rich countries, however our country isn’t doing that well and our standard is way below British. Just for an example, beer in London is four times more expensive then in my city. And all of those attractions aren’t any cheaper. Everything else other then flight and apartment is paid by me. So I have found a student job over summer, but… I will be earning 22 euros per day. I know that you are probably laughing now, but it is normal here. Anything is better then nothing.
Now that isn’t that bad, I can live with it. But here is the thing. Once I am in London then I want to experience every part of it. I want to visit every museum, Premier league game, enter some cool clubs and try craft beer. I guess that kind of makes sense. Every young person will understand and each person that likes to travel will know what I am talking about.
Every donations means a world to me as I really don’t need much, just little extra to have more fun. At the end, this is going to be a good story one day :)
Thanks in advance,

Hi everyone, my name is Jamie and I am asking some generous people out there if they would help me get out of the small amount of debt I have found myself in and get me on my way to saving up a deposit to move out with my girlfriend.
Both myself and my girlfriend still live with our parents, we have been together for just over 5 years, however a month after we got together she was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer at the age of just 21.
This really took a toll on us both physically and mentally, she had to take a year off work to go through all the horrible aspects of treatment and still to this day is back up the hospital every 3 weeks ongoing.
After the first year whcih was certainly the hardest part to get through, we have tried to live life to it’s fullest and go out enjoying ourselves as much as we can. We live going to broadway musicals and have tried to go on holiday a couple times just to take her mind away from reality for a bit.
However after taking her away on her dream holiday to DisneyWorld Florida back in February, I now find myself almost £3000 in debt and am really struggling to get out of it by myself.
I have now come to reaching out to anyone out there who is willing to help me and my girlfriend out, giving us the break we need and sending us into the next chapter in our lives.
Who knows, it’s worth a shot.
To all and to whom it may concern
GIVE ME THE ROD…..SO I CAN FISH
Life is always very challenging alike the landscapes with mountains, hills, valleys, plain, rivers, streams and all the natural wonders created by God in the complete system. In all their natural perfections though at times not for human being; and so is my life’s kaleidoscopes – once relatively doing well-high and lost everything five (5) years ago – lows.
Now, I am making an open appeal to any kind heart out there to give me “the rod” – the financial capital for investing; “so I can fish” – so I can effectively working, earning to eek for financial survival and a decent living with integrity. Unlike a life I have now and for being advanced in age-dilemma; able and healthy to work but too old to be employed.
Making the story short and straight to the point – I need the rod….give me the rod….so I can fish.
Am making this financial request and appeal to anyone based on any their potential proposal and/or either based on my proposed options below;
(1) Financial Advance – with initial total capital to be refunded within a stipulated period. On this basis, I request for an amount of USD$500,000.00 (USD$ Five hundred thousands) with the principal capital refunded in full after two (2) years.
(2) Soft Financial Loan – Soft financial loan with two percent (2%) interest per year. On this basis, Soft Financial Loan – Soft financial loan with two percent (2%) interest per year. On this basis, I would like to request for an amount of USD$1,000,000.00 (USD$ One million) and for a period of five (5) years. Where the loan principal capital amount will be paid in full on the final fifth (5th) year. And, interests’ payments for the first four years will be paid accordingly at the twelfth (12th) month of each respective year. The fifth (5th) year’s interest payment will be paid together with the principal capital.
Additionally, beyond my proposed module above, I am very open to any other potential suggestions – “beggars cannot be chooser”. However, I sincerely hope and pray that my appeal here can be considered as with the method I proposed, I can be financially independent and self-sustaining for the rest on my life and beyond. I do not want to be a beggar for the rest of my life and a burden to anyone if given this opportunity and choice.
Should this appeal of mine is granted, I can financially restart and undertake charitable activities which I like to carry on and continue from where I left-off some years ago.
Meanwhile, I pray and hope that my appeal will merit your kind attentions, considerations and granted in any form you kindly wish.
Finally, I thank you very much for the time spent on reading and going through my letter for this request here.
Regards and thank you. God bless always.
I am a 55- year- old women and a proud grandma of 9 from three kids, I started off doing really well with working and taking care of my bills, until 2 years ago, I was rushed to the hospital with diabetes and ketoacidosis, This ketoacidosis is a very bad disease, On April 24, 2017 I was found on the floor by my son, I had gotten food poisoning, which kick on the ketoacidosis and almost died, from this. I was not able to pay a portion of my bills, because of out of pocket expenses, this disease keeps me from working. Which I would love to, but afraid the ketoacidosis will flare up and I will lose the job. I am only asking for $3,500.00 to get the rest of my bills paid off and now in need of getting my teeth pulled, because of the acid has loosed and made my gums weak. It will cost 2,500.00 out of pocket. I am, however, working on to get on disability, but in the meanwhile, I do have help with living expenses, but not the ones I owe. I am not one of those who usually ask online, but my kids don’t have it and I can’t work anymore, and Yes, I have tried getting a personal loan, my credit is fair, but not the best to qualify for a loan through a bank. I pray there is someone out there who will be willing to help me. I just want to be caught up and able to take care of myself without the worry of these bills that exist and I cannot pay them.
Hello, I am nervous so please bear with me. I am trying to get my life back and I need ” A Hand Up.” After taking care of my elderly parents until they passed,getting my life going was hard but I finally landed a great job at a great employer, and things were looking up. After 11 months on the job, due to health reasons I had to go out of work in August of 2016, while awaiting surgery I used all of my sick time and vacation time up. I had my surgery and due to complications had to have another emergency surgery that left me with a severe disability which there is no cure for, “Drop Foot.” I lost the use of my one leg. I have been turned down for SSD and I am fighting for SSI, in the meantime I am on the verge of loosing the house I grew up in, I have no income, buying the basic every day means to live, like toilet paper, laundry detergent, pet food, ect. are almost impossible. I have no transportation, and I am desperately trying to hold onto what little hope I have left. I just want to be able to see a glimpse of light at the end of the tunnel, and be able to survive and save my home, and live a quiet existence with my pets, be able to figure out how I can be productive and live. I just need a hand up! My goal is to reach $100,000.00, to be able to keep my home, get the repairs that desperately need to be done, get decent transportation,and to be able to get the every day basics to live until hopefully SSI will come through! I thank you for taking the time to read this plea, God Bless I don’t have a way to post a picture right now, but I will as soon as I get the means, it will be of my girl “ABBY” she’s the only light in my life right, a 9 month old “Jack-Chi”
I have been struggling with mental issues now for over 10 years. During the course of that time I have struggled through anxiety and depression, family and relationship issues and a series of unfortunate accidents that have left me completely broke. Each time I recovered and had a period of lucidity and what I believed to be relative happiness, I borrowed more money to help get me back on my feet. Unfortunately it has got to the point where I now owe so much money I can barely afford to pay the bills and run a car (its 18 years old and worthless) to just get myself to work. I feel that I am in a cycle of working to pay bills and paying bills to work. I can’t afford to keep slipping back into depression and allowing my worry and my head to take over again and again. I can’t afford it financially or emotionally and I certainly cannot afford to lose my job over something I actually need my job for.
I don’t come from a family with money and have no one else to turn to. My credit is maxed out and I feel like I have constantly been battling debt for most of my adult life. To have people donate, and allow me to start dealing with this debt in a sensible and constructive manner would lift a huge weight off my shoulders and allow me to get on with my life. At the moment I am stuck in an admin job that pays very little and allows me to scrape by. But I have no clear way forward at the moment to reach my aspirations of becoming what I wanted to be – a genetic counsellor. The reason for this is because I was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta otherwise known as Brittle Bones. This hospitalised me for a lot of my childhood and has left both physical and mental scars that will be with me for the rest of my life. This is because when I was younger, genetic counselling wasn’t around and people had to learn to deal with me as they saw fit. I felt I couldn’t talk through how I was feeling in the way I wanted to because there was never anybody there who truly understood. To get to this dream of mine I know I need to shed this debt of £15000 and truly start afresh with the aim of getting my head back on a track to happiness and have something in front of me that I may actually be able to achieve one day. Thanks
Hello my name is Patricia. I am a 49 yr old married woman with a dream. As I am sure many others have as well. At 45 yrs old I had my first heart attack and stent placement. I have also been diagnosed with bipolar disorder as well as slightly overweight. I have applied and appealed for social security disability since 2011 and in my third appeal now. My husband is a hard worker and has been the soul bread winner since then and has been very patient. But his health is declining as well and can not take time off for doctors. Yet I have to go all the time and have numerous prescriptions to fill each month. I feel so selfish because I can not contribute to our household.
My Dream is to be able to afford a nice little place in Florida like in the photo, as well as help my husband retire early and us both to get healthy. He deserves so much more than what I can offer him. I found this website looking for ways to make money online as I think nothing is given for free. So I said what the heck, Ill give it a try. Living out the remainder of our lives in the sunshine state would give us both time to heal and enjoy the remainder of our lives happy and stress free. Its a gift my husband deserves because he never complains about doing what he has to do for his family. But everyday he comes home like he’s on his last leg. He has bad knees and crippling pain. But wont go to the doctors because we can’t afford him to miss work. Yet I have to go monthly to doctors and have several prescriptions to fill. It’s so unfair to him. Yet he insists that I take care of myself and he will manage. But I see him slowly dying inside and out.
The money I am asking for will purchase the home at a really low price as well as some remodeling. It will also help with weight loss surgery for myself and knee surgery for my husband. The vitamin D from all the sunshine with also benefit my mental disorder. He has some retirement put away in an IRA but can not touch it until he is 65. That’s 15 yrs from now. Without help i believe he will not make it that long before his body gives out. So in closing I’m just asking for $1 or more in donations to raise my goal of $100,000 for my dream to come true. Help me save my husband and myself to live, love and laugh though out the rest of our lives together. Thank you in advance and have a wonderful day.
I am a married woman who had been blessed with two beautiful and healthy children. Due to recent circumstances we are not able to go forward with our dream of being home owners and our future dreams of fostering children.
I grew up in foster care. From age 8-18. The majority of that time I lived with “Mom and Dad” who fostered over 30 children. They were heaven sent.
A year and a half ago, my foster mom who had already had a leg amputated due to diabetes, was diagnosed with Kidney disease. I worked hard to get her into a good nursing home and getting social security to pay for it. Still, she needed things the nursing home could not provide. In July of 2016, my real mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer. Again, I was the only child that could and would help. For 8 months I took care of them both, maxing out everything my husband and I had to make sure their lives were still comfortable with things they needed. Warm clothes and blankets because they were freezing all of the time. Soup and Ginger ale for the nausea. Two hour trips to and from home for cancer treatments.
In February of this year, they both passed away. A week and one day apart. I was then left financially to pay for their end of life expenses. That has since been handled, but our credit is now shot. We cannot apply for a mortgage, and without that our family cannot grow with biological children or the foster children we would like to help.
We are asking for $20,000 to pay off some of the credit card debt to raise our scores and for money to help with a down payment on a house. We have 12 years of rental history, only living two separate places during that time. Our income is above median, so modest mortgage payments will not be a problem to make. We don’t want a mansion, we just want a home.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Long shot here, but I’m drawing near the end of all options available.
For the last 10 years, my family and I have struggled financially. To an extent; it was manageable until last year (2016). I am a 24 year-old youngster who managed to fall into 20k in debt. This was not due to lack of diligence, at least to my knowledge. I am the youngest of 3 boys and was raised by a single mother. Growing up I was the “star” child; who was that glimmer of hope my mother sought out for me. I started working at the age of 16 to help my mother as much as I could, given both my brothers had left home when I was 13 and left my mother and me against the world. My mother worked two jobs (at one point 3) and always pushed to provide what two parents could.This had lit a fire in my soul furthering my ambitions on success. Things seemed to be going well; my mother met some doctor (in 2009) and he was an alright guy (no domestic violence), but little did I know what was to come. My mother had left her previous employment to help this new boyfriend of hers. She helped rebuild his practice through proper billing, a proper hiring of employees, and pushing her boyfriend past his bad habits of procrastination.
In 2010 from what I can recall; the medical board wanted to get my mother’s boyfriend’s medical license revoked. Year after year they were trying very hard to find sufficient evidence to take his practice down (for what reason; till this day I have no idea). In 2015 things went haywire. From police raiding our house, to later our house being robbed and everyone in the household breaking mentally. I managed to land myself a very good job in which relocated me to another state; Things had seemed to calm down quite a bit. In 2016 the medical board correlated with the DA in our town and instead of going after my mother’s boyfriend went after my mother instead. This lead to false accusations in which lead my mother being sent to jail. No words could explain how distraught I was by this confusing situation. To help post my mother’s bail and fly both my brother and I out to see my mother I was able to take out a 20k loan. Why a 20k loan? My brother was living on Guam so a round trip ticket was $2500 due to how short of notice in which we received on my mother’s imprisonment; plus my round trip ticket was $1000. Bail came to $10,000 and the rest was to help my mother with any bills she needed and as well as my brother.
Since this whole predicament, I have been managing to get back; just barely. I was able to get by just barely since my new career had lead to a company car, company housing, and a per diem. The per diem and company housing ended 6 months ago along with my mother’s career. My mother and her boyfriend are both currently unemployed due to a plea bargain in which they took with the medical board. They both cannot leave the state because of an open case with the DA. Now I find myself struggling with so many bills and my loan which is marked at a 33% interest rate; in addition to helping support my mother and her boyfriend. On top of struggling financially, I now find myself struggling mentally. I’m trying to live each day one at a time and continue to count each and every blessing that comes across my path. I continuously tell myself that at least I still have a roof over my head; at least I still have the company car which is one less bill to pay; at least I have food to fill my stomach; at least I still have a steady job, but for how long? All this stress has started to affect my ambition which in conclusion has affected my career. All I ask is to help me with one less bill and it will make my future go a lot further than I would have ever imagined. I have the ambition, I have the work ethic, but I do not have right setting due to unforeseen circumstance. At this point, anything helps.
I understand life has its ups and downs.. but i just cant seem to get my family to the ups. Life has never been easy and i will always accept that but its come to a point im hoping i can find some outside help. Life got really tough when the father of my kids first started to get unwell. It turned out that he had a heart condition that requires surgery, and with the public system having quite a waiting list he was unable to work for 2yrs with his health severely deteriating to the point i thought we would lose him. But lucky for us a spot came up for him before it was to late. The surgery was a success but the recoving would be a nightmare. He soon developed PTSD from surgery and being only a young 24yr old it was hard to come to terms with. He was no longer the people we once new he had new fears and worries in life and has become antisocial and withdrawn from the world. He has since returned to work but in the mean time of him being sick all our insurance was voided due to loop hole so wd had no finacial help. So to feed and care for my family i basically had to put alot of expenses on credit. Now its been 4 yrs and we are still trying had to catch up on all the bills that was created from the sickness but im still putting basics on credit which is terrible. Now our daughter is currently going throught the diagnosis of ASD and the appointments for help and support are through the roof. I just dont know how to keep everything going without a miracle. I would just like for my family to live life a little stress free and to start being able to enjoy life a bit more. I appreciate any help we are given xx
I have been working in music industry for almost 10 years now. My journey started when I bought my first electric guitar and started learning some simple riffs and solos from the songs I liked. After that I bought an acoustic guitar from the pawn shop, it was cheap, I really wanted one. Not the best one around, but it serves its purpose.
With time I have started recording some simple loops and Ive gotten my hands on music studio, actually a DAW. I have been working out of fun, for free, never earned money from it, its my love, my passion since I was little. I produced all kinds of music, and usually supported youtubers, made some unique tracks for their channels, and in general made so many tracks out of pleasure just because I love making music so much. The hard thing here is, I have taken some simple piano lessons in past, but nothing too much since I never had a chance to buy a decent professional MIDI synth. Working on a DAW without one is horrible since you have to think out the notes and everything out of your head. It would be so much easier if I could actually play those chords, add that human touch to my music. Creating OST, orchestra, classical or any similar sort of music (which I love the most) is just not fun without a proper MIDI synth. And it feels unnatural.
If I could turn back the time, I would go to musical academy, and study all these, but not its kinda too late, and Im here where I am. Making something I like, out of pleasure. I have no intentions in earning money from my music, but I would really love to get my hands on a good synth so I could take my music to a whole new level.
I haven’t really been checking the prices lately, so I dont really know how much to ask for. Any donation will be highly appreciated, even if its 1$.
Thank you! Have a nice day! Nela
Thank you for taking the time to consider my request.
Allow me to tell you a little about myself. I am a 47 year old male born and raised in Alabama. I am educated beyond high school with a Bachelor of Science degree and currently employed full time. I’m am the middle child of 3 boys and have some awesome nieces and nephews. I am single and at this point in my life I am happy with that. For the most part I am a healthy individual with the exception of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). Currently my RA is controlled with medications and is mild compared to some. And I work toward keeping the RA in check and hoping for little to no progression in the years to come. I enjoy being outside and especially on the beach. If you have never been to the Alabama beaches then you are missing out. So the beach will be my retirement some day.
I am here looking to raise the money to help get myself on track to make that beach retirement a reality. Currently my job keeps the bills paid and the lights on. And I save a little to live life by enjoying meals out and occasionally a small trip. What is not happening is being able to save what I need so that I am not working to age 80. What I am looking for is $60,ooo. That would allow me to pay off all debt and start a savings account. With all debt eliminated I could and would be able to build a nest egg and invest in a sound financial future. This would also help me invest in the future college education of my niece and nephew. I would also be able to save up a few thousand dollars to help my parents with some home renovations they need. My parents are retired and live solely on their social security so being able to pitch in here and there to help them out would be awesome.
You may wonder how I ended up here asking and I will tell you. I have researched all my options including a personal loan to taking a withdrawal from my 401K. And these options are just not reasonable. A loan would do nothing to elinate my debt and a withdrawal is not allowed in my 401K investment(nor is it a smart decision). I have applied to work a part time job just to help supplement the income. And I am taking some classes through work to increase opportunity for promotions. I am doing the things necessary to help myself I’m just looking for a little assistance in securing things.
Your assistance is appreciated more than you could ever know. And I will continue to better myself.
Peace and Love for a better tomorrow for everyone.
I am sure you get thousands of letters a day asking for money and I am no different, Along with many cancer stories all of they are a tragedy and I wish nobody would have to watch a loved one be eaten away by cancer. What I would do with say a million dollars is different than what other people might do, I would still work because I am not lazy, but I could use a break not going to lie to you about that one but I would be able to give with my children that time they deserve to get, but never got to have . I am writing this looking for a helping hand through your charity or Grant. I have been working since I have been 15 years old and never seem to get that 15 minutes of fame they say everyone gets. I have worked hard my whole life, I got my degree in computer programming and networking in 2001 Which I finally paid off last year because the government took it out of my paycheck each week, and I am glad but made things even harder. I was Married to my beautiful wife Suzan, April 20 1994 and we had our first child in December 1997. We both again worked hard and had our second child January 2001, who looks just like her mother. We both worked to pay the bills until my wife was diagnosed with Leiomyosarcoma, vary rare soft tissue cancer that travels through the blood.
I would be able to give them the happy parent time they never got because I was at work while they got to watched their mother get sticker and sicker, finally passing away at our house, not the greatest of childhoods. I was at work the day my wife died because we could not afford for me not to be, even though I should have been there the whole time, holding her hand and trying to explain to my children what was going on and why they would never get to see their mother alive again, broke my heart, and to this day still is. I have always wanted to give them everything they so desired what parent doesn’t, but I never got to, I was always working trying to pay the bills and not lose the house we live in. I am a single parent with a good job but still in the poverty level according to the USA statistic. I am taking a chance that you get to read this and feel badly enough for me to give me and my family a helping hand. Even if I don’t it was still nice to think that you would actually read this and chose to help me, instead of all the others asking for your kindness because I am sure they need it just as badly as I do. With a tear in my eye I thank you for at least giving me the opportunity to write this letter knowing you will probably never even see it let alone read it, I wish you and your family the very best of health and happiness.
ok- this is a first for me, and I’m not quite sure where to start. My name is Crystal and I’m trying to save my parents home by raising money for their repairs and debt. My parents have been married for 40 yrs, which is unheard of these days, and they have given every cent they’ve ever made to try and provide for their children and grandchildren. They are truly the best people out there and my heart breaks everyday to see them struggle so badly. I guess as a child you never really understand the true hardships your parents are going through since they are always trying to protect their family. Only now as an adult do I truly realize how badly they are struggling. My mother was laid off from her job 3 years ago and since then has went through multiple neck and back surgeries, leaving her practically disabled. My father tries to work about 70 hrs a week, in his 60s, to try to keep them going. Their kitchen is fully gutted and not functional – sitting on almost $30k in needed repairs and restoration. It’s unliveable conditions. My parents have too much pride to ask for help, and I have $50k in debt myself from student loans, which is what has landed me here. I couldn’t imagine their humiliation if I spreads this across Facebook amongst people they know. They are too old to have to feel like they’ve failed. It just isn’t fair. I’m hoping someone out there can find it in their heart to help. My parents deserve the world, and at the very least, deserve the ability to get their home back together.
My name is Terry. I am a ex navy fmf corpsman. I completed my 6 year contract. I currently work full time in a plant making $23.50 a hour and $35 a hour overtime for a electrical company called isc. I have two kids with my wife but we have been separated for a year now not legally. I want my family back. Money is the issue. We lost our home in the 2016 Louisiana flood but what fema gave my wife wasn’t near enough to demo and remove flooded trailer which took on 4 foot of water inside trailer. Now the aftermath. We paid $1000 for another flooded trailer that took on less water but is still molded and we have been trying to spray for mold and rebuild but the mold still comes back. She and my kids are in a fema trailer and I’m staying with my brother. With bills and the loss of our 3rd child months before the flood and the flood has caused problems between me and my wife and I just want to give her a new trailer around a 16×80. Clayton homes in Gonzales Louisiana, baton Rouge Louisiana. Trailer will be moved to colyell, Louisiana. If I can do that I can have my family back and we can go back living together in a new home and work things out. I just want to provide a new home since the 2016 flood and our money issue and the loss of our child I wanna make her happy and provide better for them with a new home. A new trailer at a good price can be least $20,000 for a good down-payment for a $40,000 trailer. I don’t care how much is donated I just sincerely need help.

I am writing this letter to reach out to any willing and able person to help me solve my financial need. I have several needs which all circle around the need for money. Kindly allow me to take you through my story.
I was born and brought up in a well up family. At the time, my dad worked as an accountant in a good company while my mum was a housewife. Dad was able to provide and take care of us, my mum and my 3 other siblings. Unfortunately, the place where dad was working for, closed down and dad lost his job. This happened when I was just about to join my high school. It became hard for him to pay our school fees and still provide for our other needs. But somehow, we didn’t drop out of school. I had no idea how he did it, but he kept us going to school till we cleared high school.
I was fortunate enough to pass my high school and got an admission to a good public university. I later graduated 4 years later and started applying for a job. I secured an internship positive with a good company in my town for a period of 6 months. Life was slowly picking up.
An year into my job, I got married to my campus boyfriend. At the moment he was working with an NGO firm in the country and was doing well too. But unfortunately, the project he was working for ended and all the staff for that particular project went home. He was already undertaking his masters. He wasn’t able to finish due to this hiccup.
Its been years now and ever since, nothing has changed in terms of our financial situation. I’m still working as an intern in the same company(which is very illegal for them to keep me an intern instead of take me in as a permanent staff). They keep telling me they are unstable financially and thus they are unable to hire me at the moment. That I should be patient. Its been years now of patience but still nothing. I have contemplated resigning many times and start off my own business but it always goes back to lack of capital.
Last year during Christmas, I got a gift from a friend of $100 and was so happy that I used it as a start up capital for my small home baking business. It picked up very well and it helps us get a few coins occasionally since I bake cakes on order. It is however not able to change our need for owning a home
We currently live in a very small house as we are not able to afford a big house. We recently found out we are expectant and we are so delighted about the news. Our prayer is that our job status will have changed and improved so that we may manage to take good care of our babies. We would like to get help in owning a good decent home and afford a small car and a healthy meal every day.
I know there must be somebody somewhere out there who is fortunate enough to have enough to spare and would be willing to lend us a hand. We are looking for an amount close to $100,000 to buy land and build, furnish the house, and buy a car. We would be so delighted to get kick started to living in a decent home and raise our children comfortably.
Hi, my name is Ethan if you are reading this thank you so much for taking the time to do so. Now I suppose you want to know about me and why I am asking for your donations. Well, simply this I want to spread smiles and positive feeling to everyone. you see there was a point in my life that I was homeless for about a year give or take From the age of 18 I am now 20 literally today. and during those times that was homeless is when I hit rock bottom but I’m not going to go into details about that because my goal isn’t to make u feel sorry for me or anything of that sort. However During those time I found myself watching famous YouTubers like; Roman Atwood, Alex wasabi and many more all of whom make my day because of their passion to push happiness on you so now up to this point I’m motivated by Youtubers like these to do the same cuz through my hard times it’s not to make u feel bad but to make u feel great cuz if I can do it so can u. I have this saying that goes like this A Frown is like a shirt worn Backward all you gotta do is turn it around.Now I hope that I gave you enough of a description, however, i should probably tell you why specifically I am asking for ur donations. It’s my goal to be a successful YouTuber and I want to produce the best content so the thing I am trying to save up for is a drone $999 and of course a DSLR camera kit for $600. so that is all I have for you thank you so much
HELP! My nephew (I call him my son and he calls me his Mom) has been missing for 6 months!!!!!! My name is Alexandra. I am a 41 years old. I don’t know where else to turn. My whole life has been my family. I am the middle child of 8 children. I have been raising children since I was 16 years of age. Not younger siblings but my nieces and nephews. Since I was 16 years of age until now I have 15 kids that call me or have called me Mom. It is a wonderful feeling knowing I made such a positive impact in their lives.
Here’s where I need financial help. I am currently raising 5 children ages 6, 8, 10, 14, 15. I have my own home, my own vehicle. Financially I was doing fine until about 6 months ago. Halloween 2016 my 17 year old nephew Jeremy went missing, I have helped raise him since he was 2 weeks old. I am completely devastated over his disappearance. He still has not been found. I have taken time off from work without pay to search for him. Financially I helped pay for gas, food, and fliers. I am working as much as I can to continue paying for my house, car, car repairs, household items, just general living expenses plus as much as I can in the search efforts for Jeremy! I am asking for help in the amount of $5000 so I can continue to take time off from work to continue searching for our boy. My vehicle has been running pretty rough with all the search areas I have been to in the area. My employer is allowing me to work as many hours as I can and lets me leave early or come in late! I am blessed to have an employer such as this! I don’t have any personal leave built up anymore. Our family has done some fundraising to get a reward out for information on Jeremy’s whereabouts with no luck yet. It has been Jeremy’s family and friends that have been continuously searching miles and miles of roadways for him.
There is no worse pain the world than not knowing where your child is! If they are safe, warm, unharmed. So many scenarios have gone through my head in the last six months. Sometimes I feel as if I can’t breathe. Jeremy is a exceptional basketball player and has been on a traveling team since he was in 6th grade. His teammates miss him tremendously.
Here is the poster on National Center for Missing & Exploited Children:
Any little bit helps. I will not stop looking for him until he is home!
My name is Gianna Caliendo and I have been in love with motorcycles since I was very young. Now that I am getting older and more responsible, I would really enjoy having one of my own. From the rev of the engine, to the sleek design, everything about motorcycles really catches my attention. If I were to actually get this motorcycle, I would treat it better than anything I have ever owned before. I come from a family with just enough money to get by, so I can’t receive much financial help from them, and that’s okay. I am currently in college at Ball State University studying to be a kindergarten teacher, my dream job. I am adding up more and more student loans, so money is definitely an issue for me right now. I also have other bills that need to be paid, so I need to prioritize where my money is going. Buying a motorcycle can’t exactly be at the top of my spending list right now. I have a part time job as a sales associate at JCPenney and I am saving the money I make in order to get this bike. I am also trying to get a second job as a merchandiser for PepsiCo to get a little extra money that can be put aside for the bike. If I were to actually get this bike, it would truly be a dream come true. I am not looking for someone to just buy the bike for me, and honestly I am not expecting a huge donation for the bike. I understand that there are people out there who need the money for better things than a motorcycle. I also understand that people really work hard for their money, me being one of those people, so I really don’t want to ask for too much. Any amount of donation would be super beneficial for me. I am not trying to take advantage of anyone, and I want them to know that I appreciate any donation they are able to contribute. I just really want this bike and I would do anything to be able to get it. I have already been able to get a car, so I know my goal of getting this bike is very realistic. I am not usually one to ask for handouts, and honestly I am not too sure how I feel about this. I know that if I receive help saving up for this motorcycle, I with definitely pay it forward and help someone else in need of something. After I reach my goal of getting this bike, I want to save up money to help someone else buy something they really want.
I am in need of assistance. I am a hard worker and I work two jobs and sometimes three just to stay above water. A few years back my wife gave up on our marriage and left. To make matters worse she filed for child support Knowing I was the sole provider and informed child support Services that I was an absent parent the entire time causing me to pay the maximum with debt in arrears. With that said. for the past eight years almost half of my paycheck has been garnished bi- weekly. I now owe the IRS over $6000. Due me owing money since I am now filing in the “single” status. She doesn’t allow me to claim any of our children and she receives over $4,000 almost every year. Ive downsized to a one bedroom apartment and am living from check to check. We have three children whom I am very active in there lives, sports and activities. However my participation has been limited severely. I have been fighting and pleading with her to work with me but I’m getting no cooperation from her. And now I must resort to taking legal action in which I found great council but my initial retainer fee is going to be $2500 being Things get resolved in mediation. During this time I’ve had 2 vehicles repossessed and my current vehicle is on the verge of the same. At times to keep afloat I’ve been caught in the payday loan cycle in which I currently owe over $2500. I am asking for favor on my situation. I will continue to work hard and do my volunteer work at my Masonic lodge, my kids school, and opportunities to help at my job. It makes me feel good helping those in need regardless Of my current needs. Thank you for reading and thank you for contribution whether it be financial or spiritual.
Hello. My name is Denis.
I am in big need of money but I prefer job. I can do any type of online / home based job. I am willing to learn and work hard as much as I can.
I was diagnosed with Depression 8 years ago. I was very very sad kid. I didn’t had any friends or people to go out with. I tried to end my life many times have scars on my arms. I was never thinking about my future. I have good knowledge at many many stuff. I really like now days to talk with people. I love reading online articles about the world. I am really good at 3D modeling I have very good imagination and have the visualization to create any 3D object just from a Picture. I am fast learner also i learn from my mistakes and look forward to don’t repeat them. I have also an average of 50 wpm. I can work on any shifts. I was working in a factory that creates products from milk. But I got very bad allergic all of my legs and arms and back got swelling. Even now 3 months later i cannot consume or be in touch with milk products. I never had this problem before. In my spare time I love going out to the mountain these days.
As I said I am in need of money BUT I prefer to work for it to earn it. So if there is any good person that can help me with a job even if it is a hard job I am willing to learn it / understand. If there is any one willing to help contact me to my PayPal account if possible. I wish for some one if possible to help me out. I would love to have some money and be able to live good and not worry for the incoming week. In the time of writing i live with my girlfriend in her apartment/her parents. I don’t speak a lot with my family because of bad situations that happen all the time because of stupid reasons. So I cannot have any source of help from any one. So I am asking here for some help.
Best regards to any one who is reading this text right now. If you can help me or know any one that could help me please share it :). Have an awesome day :).
I’m asking strangers for money! How has my life gotten to this point?!
I feel that simply asking for your hard earned cash is completely and utterly the lowest I have ever sunk, I do hope you continue reading, for I feel I should explain my situation as best I can and give as clear an image of me as possible whilst using my writing skills to keep you engaged! ha! I hope you take pity on me I really do, because the following is part of the reason I’m in this mess now!
Tied to my cot all day, hit, belittled, rejected, starved: 0-2 yrs old
Dumped in care: 2-4yrs
Welcomed back into my mothers care and the warm embrace of her new partners fist, beaten unconscious and everything else that comes with living with a violent drunken bully: approximately 4-8yrs

Kicked out of mothers, moved in with violent alcoholic, Forced to quit college, forced sex, pregnant and ready to commit suicide: 15-18yrs.
Gave birth, fell in love for the first time in my life, grew some balls and stood up to that bas*ard. Left him and went homeless: 18-19yrs.
Fell deeper in love with my girly, Realised my mother couldn’t care less, saved a babies life, met prince charming found a home, sleep paralysis kicked in: 19-20yrs.
Suddenly became almost full time step mum, depression, pnd and anxiety kicked in. Overwhelming need to protect my daughter, teacher from past stalking me, pregnant again: 20-21yrs.
Was told I miss carried, grieved fiercly, found out I was still carrying my live baby after a visit to a spiritualist church, Hate men full stop, no job, no money- working partner! Came face to face with my childhood rapists, urge to protect my daughter at damaging levels. Gave birth to my stunning mircle: 21-22yrs.
Suicide attempts/thoughts- 0, panic attacks-lost count, sleep paralysis episodes- lost count, sex with partner- 0, family support- 0%, depression meds 500mg sertraline, businesses launched- 1, college courses completed-3, business enterprise courses completed-3, diplomas, awards and certified achievements- 4, business plans-1, broke up with 2nd partner, disowned by whole family, had all business equipment id saved to buy smashed in exes drunken rage.

I am now 28 years old and in the past 2 years, my drive for life has rocketed, why? Because my girls want me to home educate them!!! Because my girls know they can count on me to provide them with everything they need, Because they kiss, hug and tell me day and night “I love you mummy, your the bestest mum ever”! Because. After all these years of abuse, wrongs and failures: the one job I’ve carried out flawlessly is being a mum. I didn’t see what a good job I was doing at being a mum, how well I hid my pain and struggles from my beautiful little angels. I have 1 aim and 1 goal now: to be the best mum I can be and to help my girls be the best they can be.
HERES THE REASON I NEED YOUR MONEY:
My girls came to me one afternoon last year after school and told me they have been planning for ages that we are going to travel the world and learn about everything and everyone on the way. They had saved their snack money from school for weeks which totalled £8.16, they had both been going hungry during morning snack time because they wanted to save to help buy me a car so we could start travelling! That was the first time my girls saw me cry.
My daughters are all I’m living for, so now their dream is my dream. I wish I could give my girls the childhood they deserve and I desperately want to relive my own childhood alongside my beautiful beautiful angels. I’m asking for donations to help us buy a motor home. I have a small business, making teddies and blankets that will help pay our way. I have been trying to save for years but with christmas, birthdays, rent and bills: my savings are always drained.
I need to do this for my girls, can you please please help me?
Its 1:57am and I realise I have typed so much text on my tiny phone screen, I hope you can forgive my spelling errors!
Your help will be hugely appreciated!
If you have gotten here and read all of the above, I thank you from my heart for your time. Thank you, Steph.
I’m an aspiring chef and I absolutely love to cook
and a lot of venues and weddings I have been booked!
Cooking is literally my passion!
I even wear it as part of my fashion (true story! I have a jumper with a burger on it??)
But it seems that I’ve been put in a little bit of a sitch
I can’t afford the bbq grill I want and I’m certainly not rich
I’ve been saving since 3 months ago
I don’t seem to be getting anywhere though
The grill cost 400 dollars
I know it’s a lot but I knew I had to holla!
If I get this grill I can cook more for people!
I don’t know a word that rhymes with people? but I know you get the gist
I’ll be able to get more money and my dream will become reality
And there’s a lot of flair in my food because I have such a great personality!
Enough with the poem because I can’t explain everything but here goes!
I’m not a typical person who comes to this website from maybe a disadvantaged background but in fact I was brought up into a middle class family earning good money. At the age of 15, my parents split up and my siblings and I ended up living with my mother. The divorce hit her hard and she had some mishaps along the way but she’s so much better☺️ but nowadays I find myself being the mom of the house. My mom can’t provide for us and it’s 5 years on and she’s still in an emotional state in which she can’t work which is a shame so I’m the soul provider of the family. I’m not saying I have no money at all because I do but it seems like a lot of it is going towards the family and I would like a little extra to spend on myself! I had this great idea that if I bought a grill big enough for when I’m cooking at venues, I’d be able to serve more people which could increase the money I earn! Good idea right?
i accept any donations! Even $1 helps! Thank you
My name is Erica Contreras and I’m 24yrs old and I live in San Antonio, Texas. I’m new to all of this so please bear with me. I have always loved to help people and animals and will always do so when I can. I have no kids… I would love to adopt in the future when the time is right.. I am also choosing not to have a child of my own yet because for one I’m still young and also understand I’m not financially stable enough to bring a child into the world just yet. I’ve always had a difficult life but remained optimistic. I had lived with my dad and there was no privacy and I couldn’t keep any of my possessions around because it would end up missing.. my half brother had stolen my money I had put up so I could move out and get a place of my own.. I was upset so I stayed at a friend’s house for the night and of course my things were gone through and my birth certificate went missing some how. As time went by I tried to be positive and again…
My troubles began…when I got with my first boyfriend. Everything was great until I moved in and things went downhill.. and eventually was forced to quit my job of 6yrs due to an abusive and controlling relationship and shortly after more problems came to when my purse was stolen with my ID and social. I believe it was my ex boyfriends doing to keep me with him only and without a job. My dad wasn’t in my life until I was 12yrs old so we really aren’t that close and I’ve asked him multiple times to help me with my situation. My mother is a heroin addict and she isn’t really in my life much anymore due to the fact.
I literally have no money, no job, no identification or help. I AM BLESSED ENOUGH TO AT LEAST HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT AND A PLACE TO SHOWER! I always pray to God and asking for help to get where I need to be in life and also be able to help those who need it when I do get there. I just need help to get money so I can be able to take the bus across town to Universal City where my old school is hoping my records are still there. I don’t have any shoes except ragged torn ones, I had some sandles but one busted recently and I had to throw them away unfortunately. I have only 2 pairs of leggings and a couple of shirts. I also have my cute little bundle of joy, my dog and he is my angel. I’d feed him before myself in a heart beat. Anything that I get would be a tremendous help and I would be so grateful. God bless guys.
Nestled in the Catskill mountains in upstate New York sits an old, slightly run-down farm. There are cobwebs on the majority of the horse stalls, they mainly sit empty now. You can hear the sheep in the adjoining barn, but other than that the farm sits quietly. Like so many others, this barn will eventually grow empty and the wood will crack. Years ago it was alive with horses, llamas, goats, mules, and a variety of poultry. I hated it then, I couldn’t wait to leave, now I think of it and I feel sad for the state it is in. Knowing my father is getting too old to take care of it himself, but not wanting to return to the small town with close-minded people. I still yearn for the comfort of the farm, still smell the alfalfa in the summer and wish I were surrounded by livestock and dirt.
3 years ago I moved to South Carolina, moved away from home to “great opportunities”. Unfortunately for me, so have several 100,000 others. In the 3 years, I have been here I have worked 2 dead end jobs, struggled to make my bills, and live in a subdivision where I can see into my neighbor’s yard. Have you ever felt like you were drowning? I feel that every day that I am here. I don’t want to go home, knowing there is nothing there for me. But the familiarity of the farm calls to me. My goal is to build my own farm, to watch it grow and thrive. To raise livestock, and grow crops. To appreciate the simple things in life again, so that I can provide for my family, and raise them on my values.
The issue that I have run into is that I barely maintain my bills as it is. Putting away what little money I can each paycheck, it will take me several more years to raise the money needed. I fear by that time I will have lost hope and will settle in a mundane life, that brings me no joy.
I am asking for help, looking for generous donors to help fund my mountain farm dream. I have found several plots of land in North Carolina, in an area that I have friends, that I love. My dream is to buy a plot of land there and start my farm. It would mean the world to me to be able to live like that again. To raise children in a simple, similar environment to my childhood. Today’s society is so helpless, and I don’t want my children to grow needy and hateful like so many children in my area.
Thank you for your help in making my dreams come true.
Hello everyone, my name is Matt and I’m 17 years old. It’s my senior year in highschool and I plan to attend my first and last prom. There is this girl that I really like and I was considering asking her to go with me. I was planning out how I was going to go about proposing or just asking her until I realized something. I realized that I do not even have the necessary funds to:
- Buy or rent a suit + shoes
- Cover the price for a couple, or even half of it
- Any additional cost I may possibly need to cover after prom is over
Now many of you may be thinking “Then get a job, you’re old enough.”. Well this is where my main issue really lies. I had a job, but there was so much going on in my life that I had to quit to make more time for myself and my family. The last time I worked was November and I no longer have money from then. I can’t get a job mainly because my mom needs my help. Whether it’s around the house, running errands, babysitting, dropping or picking people up, etc. In addition to sharing the car with her. She voluntarily takes care of foster children, so she relies on me to do things like pay the bills, or pick up food when she cannot leave the house with them. Other issues such as my sports, social life, and the things I previously mentioned are all big factors as to why I don’t have time for a job right now. We also are not wealthy, hence why I am asking you guys and not her.
I do not feel right for having to resort to this, but I have pretty much gotten desperate. Prom is in about a month and a half, so there may still be time for me. I know I’m not the most important person on this website, but I do need help. Anything would help me, even a dollar. I just want to enjoy my final moments as a senior with my best friends and hopefully my date. Many say Prom is one of the best nights of a person’s life, so I really don’t want to miss out just because of my family’s financial issues. Again, anything will help! Thanks in advance.
If you have any questions or need more details, feel free to email me at email@example.com (Made this email when I was younger lol)
DON’T DREAM YOUR LIFE LIVE YOUR DREAM
My name is Madina I am 27 years old I live in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan which is located in Central Asia.Kyrgyzstan was ranked 148th among 189 richest and poorest countries in the world published by the Global Finance. Let me start my story of my life I am currently unemployed since end of September 2016 I have been working from 2012 – 2016 in Dubai,United Arab Emirates as a Customer Service Agent in the shopping store. Because of financial crisis in my ex company I have been terminated. During one month period I was looking for a new job, but unfortunately time past so fast I could not get any job offer. My employee visa has been cancelled and 2nd of November 2016 I returned back to my home land. In December 2016 I had an interview with a recruiter from Cruise Ship Company. As per our conversation recruiter man told me that I will start to work in February 2017 until this time I am waiting to start the job. I am depressed, losing my hope and tired of waiting. My biggest dream is to buy an apartment in Dubai and work there as a freelancer. I really want to have my own apartment in Dubai, because the government gives a visa for property owners. If I had my own apartment I could save money and help my family instead of paying for the rental. I have a sister which is newly divorced and seeking for a permanent job in Dubai. Last few months she has been working as a part time promoter to earn some money for her daily life. In our current situation my mother is worried she should not be stressed, because of her bad sickness. I have a youngest brother he is a student we need to pay his college as well. My mother is single parent she raised us alone and past through big troubles in her life to be with us. I really love my family and I hope the best is yet to come. So I am begging everyone please help me to fulfill my dream. I am requesting people to donate as much as they want I believe that with your help I will be living with my sister under own roof in Dubai. We could bring our mother and brother for holidays they would stay with us as much as they want to. Maybe some people think that my dream is too expensive or too big, but we have to put in our minds that AMAZING THINGS HAPPEN WHEN YOU DREAM BIG. I want to live in Dubai, because it is beautiful, secure, dynamic, fast growing city with many opportunities. In the future I will do my best to help and support people to make them happy. If there is any chance you would be willing to donate any amount to fulfill my dream I would be more than grateful. Thank you for reading my story.

But i will make multiple youtube video’s and post on my Instagram @alpha_bet_assassin that there is still really good people in this world.. Altho my wife has givin up on humanity, i have not..soooo please lets restore faith in humanity just by simply paying it forward 1 person at a time.. Thank you and God bless..

My name is Suneetha Mohamed. I am 20 years old, and I am from Maldives. I have been living my whole life stuck with my parents and family. I desperately want to free myself from the place and achieve my dream, which is to earn a degree related to teaching field. The problem is I could not even get a job to make my own money. After finishing school, it has been about two years now with no work whatsoever. And my family never supports me achieve what I want to get. They have always been emotionally very abusive. Them around me, I always feel like neglected and imprisoned. All they do is control my life in whichever way they could and use me for their own selfish needs. I know for a fact as long as I am dependent on my family I am never going to be able get to live my life.
Through my whole life I have been living with social anxiety and extreme shyness, so I never really had any friends to support me either. It is just me on my own.
So of course right now the biggest problem is not having money. Escaping the family hell is the only way I could get the freedom to do to achieve what I want.
And so, to achieve this dream of mine all I need right now is some financial help. I need to move out to the city, rent a room, apply for the degree course and probably try to get a part-time job of some sort.
And I know I can be accepted for the course since luckily I have got some good grades from O’level and A’level.
Earning a degree is the most possible way now that I could think of getting a real job and make a living. That’s all I want. To make a living in doing a work I love, to be able to stand on my own feet, to set myself free from the abusive family.
So well, If you could provide me with even at least $1000, it would be of a great favor, and a real blessing to me. All I could do is hope and pray …
With best regards,
First of all I will start this by saying I would normally not try and do this as I believe in working hard to try and pay for the mistakes i’ve made but I am at an impass at this point in my life. My story starts like this… I was in a relationship with a woman for 8 years which ended in June of 2016. I was with this woman who I loved with everything I had. I helped raise her son from the age of 4months old and was there for her through countless surgeries that she needed to undergo(total knee replacement, fibroids, weight loss surgery, etc..). I supported her through all of these trying times and even stood by her side when I found out she was unfaithful. I loved her so much that it blinded me to the signs around me that should have made me leave long ago. Lo and behold I proposed to her in December of 2015 and she actually said yes. We looked for venues together and I thought we were happy and ready for the next chapter of our lives. In may of last year she ended up losing her job and I guess the shock of it was just too much for her that in June she just came out and said she wanted to be alone. This crushed me and threw my life into a downward spiral.
I had to leave our home and move back into my mothers house which is already occupied by 6 other people. The financial burden on me has become extremely difficult. I was forced to buy new furniture and even had to give up my car because of the debt I had incurred while living with my now ex. It is at this point where I am now trying to move on with my life but I find myself burdened by the amount of debt that I have incurred due to my situation. I cannot save any money and even though I live with my mother I still must pay her rent and other bills that pop up. My debt is now at almost 15,000.00 and I am strugling to just make the minimum payments each month. I have tried to apply for loans to help me consilidate but have been denied everytime. I am a very proud man and this is honestly my last hope. I don’t expect any help but I would greatly appreciate any help that is provided.
I am in a bind here which admittedly I brought upon myself but I am swallowing my pride and asking for help because I see that I have no other option. I thank everyone who takes the time to read this and am grateful for any help that you feel you can provide. I need to move on with my life but this debt has made moving on extremely difficult and depressing to say the least. All funds raised will go to pay my debt and help me find my own apartment so I can move on with my life. Thank you all again in advance.
