My Wife Can't Start Her New Job Until Our Car is Fixed, but We Need Help Please!

My Story:

My wife and I were married on New Year's Day this year, and we're raising our three boys and two girls together. We're a big, happy family, and we love to spend time outdoors together. We take regular camping trips with our kids, and they love it as much as we do!

I'm a veteran, and my family lives primarily on my fixed income that I receive from the VA. Usually, it's enough to pay the bills, but we never have much more left over after that. This makes it difficult for us to handle unexpected expenses, especially large ones like vehicle repairs. So when our car broke down, I didn't have enough to cover the repairs. We rely on our vehicle for almost all of our transportation, and on top of that, my wife is also about to start a job in November and will need our car to be able to get to and from work because it's over 50 miles from where we live. This job is a huge opportunity for her and our family, and it would be devastating for her to lose out on it because we can't afford to get our car fixed. So, we're humbly asking for assistance with the repairs we need to make for our vehicle.

This would give my wife and I the opportunity that we need to get back on our feet. We'll be in a much better position once we have reliable transportation and once my wife starts her new job. We would be so grateful for this opportunity, and I promise we will never forget the kind people who help us with these repairs. Truly, we will never forget this and will always remain humble and grateful. Thank you.
