Posted by Trevortni on 2013-07-07 12:08:41I just married my wife in the middle of December, but as she is from another country, we need to finish paperwork by the end of January so she can stay in the country and be permitted to look for work - the price tag for this final paperwork is about $1500.
We would have had enough money for this paperwork from the money we received at the wedding, but on the way to the wedding, my car breathed its last, and now we need to find a new car, on top of all the other expenses involved in setting up a new household. I don't care so much about the car, since I am within walking distance of my work, but my wife is from a much warmer climate than she is living in now, and the cold is a real difficulty for her. My parents have a lead on a really good, inexpensive car ($1200 for an early 1990s car that just reached 100,000 miles and was previously owned by a friend of the family that just passed away), if we can afford it right now, but we only have about a week left to decide if we can afford it.
Please help me pay for the paperwork so my wife can be declared a permanent citizen and also be allowed to work (which will drastically improve our financial situation); and also please help me pay for a car so that my wife won't have to walk in the cold when we shop for groceries.
Thank you, and God bless.
Posted by DareToDreamBig on 2013-05-22 10:34:01Hello all,
I am a third year advertising major at The University of Texas at Austin and I was recently granted the opportunity to study abroad in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil ^_^ Unfortunately, this amazing opportunity is also a costly one. With your financial support I would be able to accomplish several goals as well as live out one of my dreams. In an effort to raise the money needed to fund this trip I have created a fundraising webpage (http://www.gofundme.com/1oz0nk ), applied for financial aid, and received two scholarships.
I have purchased my plane ticket and paid tuition fees. However, my financial aid package is not enough to cover the program fee, which is $3,975. I am asking for $3,975 in order to pay for the program fee and turn this dream of mine into reality.
The trip lasts for about five weeks and I will be leaving on June 8th. My academic goals involve strategic networking, research, and volunteering. Brazil is renown for being a black nation with black people making up 50% of the population. The majority of these people, however, are poor and subject to hazardous living conditions. Volunteering with CRIOLA, a a Brazilian NGO which supports black women in Brazil, will help me achieve a personal goal in hopes of making a difference and uplifting the black community. My professional goal is to become an international marketing executive. I recently learned that U.S markets are predominantly in Germany and Brazil. Studying on this program will prepare me for my career by providing an international experience, allowing me to understand Brazilian culture, and gaining the ability to learn and speak the Portuguese language. Also, I hope to gain independence and maturity by traveling to another country for an extended period of time.
P.S. if you are unable to contribute,financially, please send the link out to friends and family :)
Posted by oldpro on 2013-05-22 08:59:17I am 79 years old, my wife is 78 and we could sure use some help to pay all our bills & medical. I have worked all my life and provided, but now, at my age age, it is hard to find anyone who wants to hire a 79 year old to work part time.
We are trying to stay in our home, which is now mortgaged to the hilt, but find it a struggle each month to do so.
If anyone out there could help, you will be blessed by a thankful older couple.
Posted by hazel12 on 2013-05-20 12:46:22I opened a gym 3 years ago and recently needed to relocate to a new space. I have some crucial upgrades that need to take place to continue to offer all of the services that our members and client came to expect.
My greatest need is for 1200 square feet of new (specialized) flooring for our classes. Currently we are on a concrete slab. Until I can get this flooring in I will lose current member/income and future sales. My business was just beginning to see a profit and the move set me back. The cost of the flooring is just over $10,000 and I am not able to secure traditional funding. I have also put all of the money into the business that I have been able to. Any and all donations will be helpful. If you live in the Los Angeles area I would love to throw in a free membership for anything over $300. Thank you. My name is John.

Posted by VeteranFather on 2013-05-11 09:48:18Hi it's against my core beliefs to ask for any kind of help but for the benefit of my wife and child I'll put aside my pride. I'm a veteran who is about to get out of the army due to PTSD among other injuries and im in a bit of debt due to my ex wife who is the mother of my child. I have custody of my daughter because my ex wife gave me custody for a laptop and I've done everything in my power to make sure she has had a great life and at almost 6 yrs old I can say I've done a good job. But now I'm in a bind I just need some help to pay down some of my debt before I get out. I have 14,000 to pay off, and I'm putting all I can towards it I just need a little more help. I've got about 3000 in savings and I'm putting more and more in there with every check I just fear I wont make it to 14,000 before I get out. Please help if you could, my family would very much appreciate it as well as benefit greatly. God Bless you!
Posted by Debtpoorpleasehelp on 2013-05-11 08:45:12Streak of bad luck...laidoff job, medical issues, and stupidly used credit cards to survive. I'm trying to get out of debt so I can retire some day and at the same time send my child to college. And the two jobs I'm working are not enough to make this happen. We all have a sob story but if we get to the point of posting on here we're getting worried and scared and just out of options. Your donations to our plight is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your consideration and help.
Posted by tiaheart on 2013-05-08 22:08:48I'm 21 years old and I've never been able to get a job. I can't move out of my childhood home which is psychological torment for me.
My whole life I've wanted nothing more than to create change in the world, to prove myself. But where I live, unemployment has been in the double digits since before I even finished high school, in 2009. Since I was seventeen I've been looking for a job, but so has everyone else.
I always wanted to attend a four-year university, but I knew federal aid wouldn't cover all of it and I was scared of student loans. "I'll just wait for a job," I told myself.
But it's been years. And I'm starting to get really scared that I'll never get out of this house. I'm not wanted here. I'm told all the time how I'm not wanted, how I should just get out and never come back. I've been told that no one would mind if I committed suicide, as long as I didn't do it in the house and make a mess.
My mom and dad have never had time for me, so I've never lived with them, and the relatives that I live with have never accepted me; they've always seemed to enjoy making me cry. I've learned not to cry anymore, for the most part. I wait until nighttime, when everyone's asleep. I just can't live here anymore. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to get out. I ran away multiple times, but had nowhere else to go.
I have thrown myself fully into trying to get a job, for years. If you can name a place, I've applied there. I only ever got a call back once, and that was over the minute they found out I didn't have a car.
I want to start an online business, selling homemade crafts. I want to publish books. I want to make video games, projects that I'll probably have to fund through Kickstarter. I'm about to start working towards a Bachelor's Degree, which I'm going to have to take out lots of loans for.
I'm full to bursting with ideas, and I want nothing more than to make them happen. But living in this place . . . it's so hard to even get out of bed in the morning. I feel trapped, like I'm in this nightmare and I can't get out.
I'm writing this because I'm desperate. I've tried so hard to get jobs, to make art, to start a business, to better myself. To get out of this house. But the more time I spend here, the more I just want to give up on absolutely everything. Maybe just end my life.
And every day where I'm not supporting myself, I hear my relatives' voices in my head saying, "We knew she was worthless. We knew she'd never amount to anything."
Anything you can give will be appreciated. It would be the first nice thing anyone's really ever done for me. The amount that I'm hoping to raise is between 15,000 and 20,000 dollars. The reason I'm asking for this is because if I stretch my dollars enough, I can make that money last a year. I can get out of this house, away from this negativity and people who view me with contempt, so I can breathe, work, and prove to everyone, including myself, that I have worth. Including rent, utilities, food, and necessities (contacts/glasses, detergent, shampoo) I've done my research and I think I can live on 1,500 - 2,000 a month. I can maybe even shave a hundred or two hundred off if I live on Ramen.
Please, take a chance on me. Once I get out of this place I can put into motion all my plans, push towards my dreams, and be able to sleep at night. I have value. I can contribute to the world. And once I've gotten a hand up, I want nothing more than to pay it forward, and help other people.
Thank you so much for reading this.
