I THANK every single donor who took the time to be a blessing to me and to someone they don't even know. I truly appreciate the sacrifice you made to give especially during a time when so many people in the world are going through some very challenging times. With tears of joy in my eyes, my hands literally shaking as I type and gratitude pouring from my heart and soul. Please know that your kind gesture means SO much to me and I'm forever grateful that there are 'Angels on earth' like you. This donation will allow me to be able to drive my car, get to and from work safely without having to be worried my car will become damaged more. Most importantly, I too will be able to continue to spread kindness to others everyday because all the world needs is more love. Thank you all again SO very much.

Please Help Me Repair My Car So I Can Avoid Having it More Seriously Damaged!

My Story:

I'm a 45-year-old makeup artist, and I love to bring out the beauty in others. Lately, I have been having trouble doing that because I was laid-off from my job, only to be brought back months later with fewer hours and lesser pay. Still, I love what I do, and I've been doing my best to stick to a budget and save money while I was collecting unemployment as well. Being on my own without any help has been difficult though, and no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to get on top of my finances.

Unfortunately, last week, just after having to reach out to make payment arrangements on my bills for a later date, my car check engine light came on. Now, I have to decide whether to buy groceries, to pay my other almost past due bills, or to fix my car so that I can get to work. I'm stuck in a difficult situation, and I'm very humbly asking for assistance with my car repairs so that I can get to work and afford my other bills.

My car is still drivable, but I'm worried that it won't be for much longer if I don't get these repairs done. Also, driving on it right now just to survive in the short-term might cause long-term, expensive damage to my vehicle. As long as I have reliable transportation, I can keep going to work, but I need help if I'm going to be able to rely on my car for much longer. My other bills will still be there, but I'll have a better opportunity to get ahead in the near future, and for that I would be very thankful. Thank you all for this assistance with getting my car repaired, and I promise that I will do my best to pay it forward.
