I am so grateful for your selflessness and willingness to give. It's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of work, family, holidays, bills and just everyday life and you have reminded me of how beautiful the world really is and I want to assure you that I will pass this good deed on. Thank you for helping when I had no where else to turn, God bless you all.

I Had to Take Time Off of Work to Care for My Daughter, & I Need Help Keeping Our Car Now Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mom who's never been married, and I have a 17-year-old daughter. I work full-time as a scheduling coordinator for an endodontist and part-time front desk at a hotel. My daughter is very artistic and loves animals; she's always trying to bring home new ones. She is a senior in high school and is about to graduate. We love being with our friends and family when we can, and I absolutely love watching true crime shows.

Even working two jobs we live paycheck to paycheck, but we're making it. My daughter struggles with her mental health and while we're working on a good regimen of medication and therapy, it still takes time. I had to miss work from both of my jobs to take care of her when she recently tried to take her own life, and if that isn't bad enough, the loss of income has caused me to get behind on my car payments. The stress from this is making me physically sick, I am so distracted with thoughts and worry, and I am not able to be the best I can for either of us. I make too much money to get any type of government emergency assistance, and I don't make enough to handle a bump in the road, so I'm seeking assistance with our car payment for this month.

If I lose my car, it will cause a whirlwind of problems for me and my daughter. Without a car I can't drive to work or any doctor appointments; if I don't work, we lose everything. I don't know how we recover from such a loss to be completely honest. I'm very concerned for my daughter's health and well-being, and I'm worried that our financial problems are really taking their toll on her. So as a mother, I'm asking for this assistance for the sake of my daughter. Making sure we're stable will do so much for her, and for that I would be very grateful to all of the kind people who lend us a hand with this car payment.
