User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI received an email this morning saying that the funding was granted for my application and it brought me to tears and lifted a heavy burden off my shoulders and gave me a positive outlook for my families future. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for funding my application. You have given me hope and your decision to help me has put my family on a better track. This means the world to me and will help lift the worries from my shoulders and give me pace of mind that I can put my children in our car with no worries with the winter weather of sliding off the road or hydroplaning because there is no tread on my tires. I will no longer be afraid to drive our car during winter storms or heavy rain. I am so appreciative for the help that I have been given and it makes me know that there are amazing people out there that are willing to help those in need even in hard times and it shows my children that we do have people out there that care for others and that these people are angels in disguise.

Need Help With Tires To Have A Reliable Family Car Before Winter

My Story:

I am separated and have 3 wonderful children. My 12-year-old is into basketball. The twin girls like to work on crafts and are in pre-k.

I earn just enough to cover the basic expenses every month. We live paycheck to paycheck and I had no saving account set up when I separated. Our only car that I have and use daily to drive the children to school, myself to work and my son to basketball has worn tires. I have also since found out the alignment is off which has caused this quick wear on the tires. With winter coming and I live on a hill, I need to replace the tires and get an alignment. It is our only transportation for myself and my children. This is an unexpected expense and I cannot let our rent go to get new tires. My children need a warm house and reliable car to be in and this has caused a financial bind for us.

This funding will allow my household to keep a roof over their head and a reliable vehicle to put the children in. It will give me a chance to build an emergency fund so in the future I will be prepared for things like this. Your help would make a lasting impact on my family and show them that there are caring people in the world.
