User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI would like to personally thank you for helping me during this difficult time. This year for me has been very challenging mentally and financially. I have never been through a situation like this before, and I am thankful that you lended me a helping hand when you did not have to especially during this time. The pandemic has affected so many people, and for me I definitely have felt the effects from it. Choosing between paying for rent and this claim was putting me in a stressful mental bind as each were equally important. With your help I will be able to pay the deductible for my insurance claim, and I will be one step closer to getting back on my feet. Thank you so much for your generosity.

After an Accident Totaled My Car, I Need Help Affording the Deductible that I Owe Please!

My Story:

I'm a single woman living on my own and working part-time at a grocery shopping company. I recently started my job and haven't made full-time hours yet. In my spare time, I enjoy working on different arts and crafts projects.

Last year I started working as a database specialist, and I was happy with my job for the first few months. However, as time went on, my manager started to become abusive, and I knew that I had to quit the company in order to find peace of mind. When I quit my job, I found my current job, but even that hasn't really been enough to keep me up to date on all of my bills all of the time. The biggest setback I have faced since quitting my job has been the recent car accident that I was in. I was in a wreck that totaled my car, which was a rental. Even though I wasn't at fault, I still have to pay the deductible, and I can't afford that alongside my rent. I need to be able to both keep my home and get a new vehicle, and I can't afford to do both right now. So, I'm humbly seeking assistance with paying the deductible that I owe.

I'm stuck having to choose between my car and my home but losing either would be a disaster for me, and it's one that I'm not sure I could recover from. With this help, I would finally be rid of a situation where I have to choose what bills I can and can't pay, and I would be one step closer to getting back on my feet again. For that, I want to say 'thank you' to all of the kind people who lend me a hand with paying this deductible. I will never forget the help that I receive.
