User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeThank you, thank you, and once again thank you!! I dutifully appreciate the consideration that was tended to my application, especially considering that my request is possibly happening to millions of Americans across the USA, and therefore is not solely unique to my situation. Now, that I'm provided with the means to move continue moving forward towards my stability, I can see that oftentimes it's the faceless and unknown members of society that may have your best interests in mind. That acknowledgement, I surely appreciate with all my heart and will absolutely pay it forward in the future, once I'm in the position to do so :)

Recent Graduate Needs Help with Car Payments

My Story:

I am a single woman living in Las Vegas and am a nontraditional recent graduate who just earned their BA in Psychology. My hobbies include reading, knitting, and roller-skating, which I am relatively new at. However, I have sort of incorporated hiking and camping, as useful Earth-loving activities, into my repertoire, although these are more expensive to do.

This last spring 2020 semester, we were studying the Medical History of Pandemics and Plagues, which seems ironic in retrospect. I never believed that COVID-19 could occur mid-semester, but it did. So, my academic situation changed to online-only learning and I lost my job. I applied for unemployment maybe 2 weeks before graduation. I was not too worried at that time, since I had saved money and did not predict that I would fall behind. I've invested so much time and effort to stay in school. Currently, I need help with my car payments and my car insurance.

I am given a very minimal amount of unemployment, since I had to work while I was in school. However, while this has been enough for most things, it is not enough to fulfill all of my financial obligations and so I cannot pay for my car or car insurance.

Personally, it is extremely uncomfortable for me seek assistance, since in the past it seemed like I was the one helping others and not the other way around. Yet, I recognize my situation now is dire and I will humbly accept funding to get me through this difficult time. I want to get back to a place where I can help others, but until then I have to rely on help now. Thank you all for your generosity and for your consideration of my need.
