Help Us Buy A New Van
Buying a new van that we can use as a service van will help us pay our debts, save money for our future, and have us work together. We believe that good things can happen to good people.
I am writing here because I have faith in good people helping strangers like us.
My name is Belle and I have been married to my husband for 18 years. Unfortunately, we never had any kids, but we give all our love to the animals we rescue. To date, we have six dogs, three are rescued and a cat that we also rescued.
My wish is for my husband whom I love fiercely. I would like for him to be able to pay his $6,000 debt and to have a new van that we can use for our business. We want to be together always.
My husband’s name is Oscar and he is the most honorable man I have ever known. A man like him is very rare and I am very lucky to have him. He was once a pharmaceutical manager and his colleagues know him as a fair, kind man who is generous in teaching and sharing his knowledge. He worked for a big phramaceutical company for twenty years and always treated his work like a child he nurtured. He was genuinely favored by the CEO because of this, and also very much envied by some brown nosers.
One day, a brown noser made an issue that got my husband fired after twenty long years of loyal service. Saying he was devastated is a huge understatement. I actually thought I was going to lose him then, as he was so depressed. The saddest thing I ever heard my husband utter was, “I have no pride left.”
In his late forties, he began applying for entry level jobs that gave him very low pay. His current wage is less than $400 a month. Mine is about $200, which we budget for groceries and paying off bills. We’re having a very difficult time paying off his debts.
But my husband is a man of honor. He will pay his debts no matter what, and so we work and we work. But as the years progress, I find myself getting more and more sickly and I am very afraid.
We used to have some savings for when he was working at the pharma company, but we spent it paying for my mother’s medical bills. She was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, which she got from a blood transfusion a long time ago. He used all his savings to save my mother, and so I want to return the favor.
We have this dream of owning a new van and converting it to a service van. That way, we can always be together even at work. We have been surrounded by so many sickness and deaths lately, and I know we are not getting any younger. We don’t have children who will help us when we grow old or a pension we can rely on. We only have each other, and hopefully, the generosity of strangers now reading our story.
Each person has their story to tell and I thank you for reading ours. I don’t know if I’ll be able to repay you for helping us, but be sure that I will be paying it forward. Bless you for your kindness.
