My name is Mariah, my fiance Ronnie and I have an 11 month old son and we need help. My fiance lost his job in June, and since then things have gotten awful. Our gas has been shut off, and our lights will follow on Nov 4th. We've applied to everywhere in the city for jobs (Chicago) and have checked with all agencies about help. None can do a thing, and we cannot receive welfare anymore. I'm looking for someone or somewhere who can help us. We're doing all we can. I legit eat once a day because anymore than that will leave us bare. Our families are tapped out and come November we also may be homeless. We've done everything we can, and I've even considered selling my hair. I am nearly crying as I write this. I'm not trying to give anyone a SOB story, but figured maybe there's someone or somewhere out there that can help us. We don't know what to do anymore. Even at this moment I'm stealing internet. My heart is breaking and I have no idea where to turn to. Here's a list of just some bills we have, and why it's important they're paid:
Gas(though its shut off now)- Last bill was 400 some.
Light- Its well over 1000 now, but any amount of payment would save it, though we literally have 2 dollars to our name right now.
Rent: is normally 850, but the landlord has been letting us pay 650, in which my fiance's grandma has done. But she can no longer do this, as her savings is drained.
My storage unit- 300 some dollars. Now, this one is important because when I was 9 years old, my father died of cancer, this unit has childhood photos of him in it, It gets auctioned on Nov. 13th if I don't pay it. My heart will be broken.
Food, we barely have food.
We don't have normal items, like soaps or anything either. We're very bad off and have nobody to help us any longer.
I understand many are in our situation too, but I figured posting on here would be a last shot. If you have any tips or can help, please reply or email at gmail: Fuzzycupcakes4
I have proof of all these expenses as well. Basically, I'm hoping to get some kindness when we need it most. Whether you can help or you know a place who can. Anything is appreciated, even some helpful hints. It pains me to have to basically beg strangers for help, but we're all human and need to rely on each other to get by. As I said, I'll answer any questions, and am legit asking for helping in any form. Thank You for reading.
My name is Angela Senske.
I have a full time job but barely
make enough to pay the bills, I
had to take out my first payday
loan and still dont have enought
to pay rent, get food on the
table, pay the bills or even get a
Christmas tree. My husband has
been un-employeed since April and
has been to several interviews yet
nothing promised job wise to him
yet. I have two beautiful
daughters ages two and four. My
heart aches at the want and desire
to provide my children 'the good
life', at least a Christmas this
year would bless our hearts. I am
doing all I can as a Mother, wife,
mother and employer to try to make
ends meet, yet with all I do,
things just seem to never be quit
enough, I am emotionally stressed,
I am reaching out to whoever will
hear me or advise me as to how
make it in the economy, to give my
daughters a chance to perhaps join
ballet and make some friends, or
attend pre-school or daycare. I
have tried to get help from
welfare, work hardship assistance,
yet I have been denied. My rent is
$1000 for a two bedroom I make
$700 biweekly and my husband gets
$200 a wk for un-employment which
is about to end. We were recently
in a car accident and took care of
the insurance to fix the damage
and repairs and seeking medical
care for the injuries through
chiropractic care. I have rent due
on the 1st its now the 5th and I
took a payday loan out, only
recieved $400 for that... I am
still $600 short of rent the place
we call home, a roof over my kids
heads... Christmas is quickly
approaching us and I don't know if
we will have a place to live. I
need some HELP, I am a good
person, I love my girls more than
words could define, they deserve a
happy life! Can anyone help us?
It's been a while. I manage to sell most of my clothing and some shoes on ebay. Enough to pay off some of my bills. I'm still looking for employment. I live month to month hoping for a miracle. I take comfort knowing i'm not just sitting on my butt doing nothing. I just live afraid every day that I will run out of time. I thank everyone for there kind words on here. It really makes me feel better. Keep me and my family in your prayers. God bless you all
I am a single parent of a toddler. I retired from the military and thought I did all the right things by paying off the bulk of my debt before retirement. It took sometime to land a job but the job I took doesn't nearly add up to where I need to be in order to maintain. I am living paycheck to paycheck to retirement check and it's still not enough. I am so depressed....I typed "Lord help me I need money" in the Goggle search engine and found this website. I don't know if anyone reads this but if there is a miracle then God please send one my way. I get angry sometimes because I don't understand why God gave ME of all people a gift of caring and giving!!!! I have nothing to give. All that I've had, I gave to help others and I have NO ONE to fall on. I don't qualify for government assistance!!!!!! I have resulted to payday loans. I have to pay rent and I have to pay for child care. I tried my best not to hurt my credit. I know God says he won't give you more than you can bare....but GOD I CAN'T BARE ANYMORE! I'm too old and too intelligent to be in this situation with a child! What is wrong with me!!!!!!! I have gained weight. I shaved off my hair. I don't have the drive I used too. I feel like this journey must come to an end. I am so sad.
It's now June 11th, I have exhausted every possible avenue for getting help. I still have some things on ebay for sell, unfortunately no one is buying them. I continue to try and sell cakes in hopes of making some money to buy food. I have less than 5 days before my rent is due and its 1350, all my bills total over 5000. I need food, i'm stretching it out as good as I can. I'm so scared right now and worried because I have no one to ask for help. I will just keep praying and continue to have a positive attitude. Something good has to happen or my family will be homeless.
I pray for a miracle, and leave everything in gods hands. I would appreciate donations at this point I will take a quarter, fifty cent whatever anyone can afford. I am in the whole, any help would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS YOU
June 8th Update: I sold mostly everything I can sell. I've been trying to get people to buy cake from me and still im unable to pay all my bills. I tried looking for a job but with me having car trouble it will be impossible to get to work, and there are currently no positions available. I am running out of options and fell like i'm failing my family. I need help immediately or I will have no home. PLEASE pray for me and my family. I will remain positive and leave everything in gods hands.If anyone can help at all PLEASE donate to paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org
My update: I started selling my clothing and shoes on ebay to come up with some money quick to pay some of these bills off. So far I am able to pay off a couple of my bills. I still need help with my rent, but I will continue to do whatever I have to (legal of course) so that we don't become homeless.
I was laid off from a job in Dallas. After months of seeking work, I decided it was time to return to Austin...so I did. I have had contracting jobs here and there, but nothing steady. I was offered a job last month and I was suppose to start May 4th, however when I called to inquire what time to show up...I was told that I had a bad check on my credit report. After much research I found that in fact I did have an outstanding check to Kogers in Dallas. I contacted the County Clerk there to see what the amount of the check was and how to resolve this matter. The check is for $94.00. I spoke to a friend of mine in Dallas who said he knew of an attorney from his church that may be able to help (Atty S. Storey). I called him and he said "I may be able to speak to the judge and have this dismissed, and I will not charge you my normal fee...but only $200 plus the check. I explained my job situtation and he said, "I will still need the $300 to get started". My new job agreed to bring me on board on the 26th of May if I could get this cleared up. Now, I am late on my rent and my landlord will file an eviction tomorrow unless I come up with 1200.00. Well, I guess I will be homeless tomorrow unless a miracle comes my way.
I am a single mom with a 14 year old son. I am in desperate need of a miracle. I need God to swiflty answer my prayer for a financial blessing. I lost both of my brothers since 2007. One of my brothers died in the war, the other one took his own life (partly due to losing our youngest brother). I currently live in CA, but need to move back to FL because my grandfather is in the ICU and my grandma is scared of losing him. I am the only surviving family member to take care of her and help her. I am behind in my bills, my house is scheduled to go into foreclosure and Im on the verge of losing my brother's house that is meant to be an investment for my niece. Finally, I have started a fantastic business that has huge potential and is with a company that holds a proven 9 year record. However, I am in serious need of some money to market and help with other startup costs. I am at a total loss and have nowhere to turn. Please help me! I need $40,000 to get everything settled and back on my feet. I can repay with 2 years at 10-12% interest. Please have compassion! Please, please help.
I have two jobs but do not have enough money to pay for what I need done on my teeth. I need 3 fillings on my front teeth and 2 root canals. One is giving me alot to trouble but I really do not know were to turn. If there is someone out there that would take a payment plan or can point me in the right direction I would really be thankful. You can reach me at email@example.com

Mama Tyrd. Seems like I've been strugglin for a long time dealin with one set back after another. The more I push forward...the more opposition I'm confronted with. I never wanted to be the one asking for a handout, I never wanted to be the one beggin for mercy. I'm a single mom with a 4yr. old. In the past five years my health has went from sugar to @#$! (tryin to keep it clean), but any way I have a health condtion that has aged me 25 to 30 years within the past 5. My condition is called degenerative disc disease...although it's heriditary I wasn't made aware of it until after a injury I received to the back of my head & neck area, which left me with 2 bulging disc and 1 hurniated disc and severed nerves. My occupation used to be a stylist and I had a really decent clientele. Matter of fact life wasn't so bad. I worked out about 4 times a week on average of 2hrs. a session. Life has surely changed since then. Although I try to stay positive and keep my headup...there are days when my challenges overwhelm me. I am a person of faith and I know these challenges are set in place to help me learn more about myself and the world. So that's why I'm taking the time out to write this "profile"...it's also a way of venting and releasing it to the universe! Some kinda way, shape, form, or fashion my prayers will be answered and I shall be a blessing to others. I'm in need of a "Financial Miracle"...so if any one reads this and you empathize with what I'm going thru, please send a prayer out for me...
BLESSINGS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD! ON FEBRUARY 6, 2008, I FOUND AIDPAGE. I THOUGHT IT WAS A REAL GOD SEND FOR "MY" PROBLEM. MY HUSBAND AND I ARE ORDAINED MINISTERS. I AM ALSO A CERTIFIED CHRISTIAN COUNSELOR. I MINISTER TO THE DESPERATE AND HELPLESS ALMOST DAILY AND SEE MANY MIRACLES HAPPEN. I LOVE WHAT I DO AND KNOW WITHOUT A DOUBT IT IS MY TRUE CALL. I DO SOME PUBLIC SPEAKING, PREACH IN JAILS AND THE HOMELESS SHELTER. ON FEBRUARY 6TH IT WAS GOING TO BE "ALL ABOUT ME". I FELT I HAD NO HUMAN TO LISTEN TO MY DESPERATE CRY AND HAVE SEEN GOD WORK THROUGH PEOPLE SO.....I WAS THRILLED TO FIND THIS SIGHT. I WROTE MY LETTER AS YOU CAN READ BELOW. THE NEXT FEW DAYS I BECAME CONSUMED WITH THE NEEDS OF OTHERS WRITING IN. HOW SMALL I FELT KNOWING WHERE I WAS CALLED. YES, I HAD "REAL, DESPERATE" PROBLEMS AND STILL DO, HOWEVER, MY HEART WAS BREAKING FOR THOSE I COULD SEE DIDN'T KNOW "MY JESUS", ALONG WITH THOSE WHO WERE HIS BUT DESTITUTE. I CHANGED THE TITLE OF MY PAGE FROM "IN DESPERATE NEED" TO "BELIVING GOD FOR A MIRACLE". I REWORDED MY FIRST SENTENCE TO MORE OF A POSITIVE STATEMENT. TODAY I AM REWORKING IT COMPLETELY ONLY I AM LEAVING THE CORRECTED LETTER (FOUND BELOW) . I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT NO MATTER WHO WE ARE IN THIS LIFE, THERE ARE HEART BREAKING PROBLEMS. AS LONG AS WE ARE ON PLANET EARTH AS IT IS, WE WILL SUFFER THE RESULTS OF OUR MISTAKES, OUR SINS, OUR ACCIDENTS, OUR WRONG RELATIONSHIPS AND ALWAYS "THE ATTACKS OF THE SYSTEM OR OTHERS" ON OUR LIFE. THERE IS ONE THING I FEEL STRONGLY EVERYONE MUST KNOW , IF YOU BELONG TO JESUS CHRIST, HE "WILL" PROVIDE "ALL" YOUR NEEDS....EVERYONE OF THEM! I DON'T WANT YOU TO THINK FOR ONE MOMENT THAT HE ISN'T FAITHFUL TO ME. I COULD TELL YOU OF MIRACLES OF HEALING, MONEY, CLOTHES, FOOD, HOUSING, TRANSPORTATION AND SO MANY OTHERS THAT I WOULD BE WRITING FOR DAYS. HE IS THE ANSWER! IF I HAVE A NEED, AS I DO, HE HAS THE ANSWER! HE MAY USE SOMEONE THAT READS THIS PAGE TO MEET IT OR HE MAY CREATE THE ANSWER UNDER A TREE! WHEREEVER I RECEIVE IT, I PROMISE IT WILL BE HIM AND "HE" WILL GET "ALL" THE GLORY! IT PAYS TO BE A CHILD OF GOD! IF YOU DON'T KNOW HIM, I WOULD BE GLAD TO INTRODUCE HIM TO YOU AND IF YOU ARE HIS CHILD....HOLD ON.....YOUR JOY "COMES IN THE MORNING"! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!! SUNNY34
I'M ASKING FOR A MIRACLE AND I BELIEVE GOD WILL DO IT FOR US. MY HUSBAND AND I ARE BOTH MINISTERS AND I BELIEVE GOD WILL PLACE THIS BLOG IN FRONT OF SOMEONE WHO CAN REALLY HELP US. OUR STORY IS MUCH TO LONG TO TELL IN ONE POST BUT I WILL BE GLAD TO TALK ONE ON ONE BY REQUEST. WE HAVE BEEN ON A SEVEN YEAR JOURNEY OF EXTREME HARDSHIPS THAT BEGAN WITH US GETTING SCAMMED, NOT ONCE, BUT TWICE. MY HUSBAND IS SELF EMPLOYED AND A GOOD BUSINESSMAN, HONEST IN EVERYTHING HE DOES AND WE FELT BOTH TIMES WE COULD TRUST THESE PEOPLE. WE WERE TOLD BY A DEACON IN OUR CHURCH THAT HIS BROTHER COULD DO A PRIVATE PLACEMENT BOND FOR US TO ESTABLISH OUR HOME BUSINESS AND BUILD OUR MINISTRY. THIS MAN SCAMMED US OUT OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ALONG WITH THE INVESTORS THAT WERE TRYING TO HELP US. OUR PROBLEMS SNOWBALLED WHEN WE WERE LEFT EXTREMELY SHORT IN OUR ACCOUNT AND THEN SUED BY SOMEONE WANTING THEIR MONEY. MY HUSBAND HAD A JUDGEMENT PLACED AGAINST HIM AND WE ARE NOW PAYING RESTITUTION WHICH IS MORE THAN A HOUSE PAYMENT. OUR CHECKING ACCOUNT WAS FROZEN AND WE BEGAN TO LOSE THINGS ONE BY ONE, THE WORST BEING THE GOOD AND HONEST NAME WE ALWAYS HAD. ALL OF THIS COMES WITH MORE STORIES. CLOSE TO THIS PERIOD OF TIME, MY HUSBAND WENT TO WORK FOR A FRIEND TO HELP HIM WITH A BUSINESS THAT WAS STRUGGLING TO KEEP IT'S DOORS OPEN. FINALLY THEY CLOSED DOWN AND THE PEOPLE FILED BANKRUPTSY. BECAUSE MY HUSBAND WAS PUT ON THE CHECKING ACCOUNT, THE IRS CAME AFTER US FOR SEVERAL THOUSAND DOLLARS WHICH WE WERE TRYING TO REPLACE IN OUR SCAMMED ACCOUNT. THEY ARE STILL AFTER US FOR MORE AND THIS WASN'T EVEN OUR BUSINESS. NOBODY WOULD EVER BELIEVE THIS BUT BECAUSE OF DELIQUENT PAYMENTS AND A MATTER OF THE NAME ON OUR NON QUALIFYING LOAN ON OUR HOME OF 15 YEARS, GOD HAS PROTECTED US FOR TWO YEARS WITHOUT A HOUSE PAYMENT. WE ARE NOW AT THE END AND AT THE END OF FEBUARY, EXCEPT BY A MIRACLE, WE WILL LOSE OUR HOME. IN THE MIDST OF ALL OF THIS, OUR YOUNGEST DAUGHTER IS GETTING MARRIED ON MARCH 14TH. WE HAVE PLANNED HER WEDDING AND DON'T HAVE THE HEART TO TELL HER WE DON'T KNOW WHERE IT WILL COME FROM. WE DO WALK BY FAITH AND BECAUSE OF THAT AND AN EMAIL I WROTE, A GIRL IN ANOTHER STATE THAT DOESN'T EVEN KNOW US, PAID FOR MY DAUGHTER'S DRESS! IN A FEW WEEKS WE ALSO HAVE A GRANDCHILD TO BE BORN BY OUR SON. OUR OLDEST DAUGHTER JUST BECAME DIVORCED FROM A BAD MARRIAGE SITUATION AND WE ARE HELPING HER WITH OUR GRANDDAUGHTERS. WE HAVE ONE CAR THAT IS NOT ROAD WORTHY. MY HUSBAND'S FATHER HAS BEEN TAKEN TO ICU IN ANOTHER CITY AND WE HAVE HAD TO BORROW CARS TO GO BE WITH HIM, WE NEED A CAR SO BAD, IT'S WEARING US OUT TO KEEP ASKING FOR RIDES. WE'VE GONE AS FAR AS WE CAN GO. NEITHER ONE OF US CAN GO MUCH FARTHER WITHOUT GOD DOING A MIRACLE. I DRAW DISABILITY BECAUSE OF A STROKE SEVERAL YEARS AGO. MY HUSBAND'S HEALTH IS BEING TESTED FOR SURE. IF SOMETHING DOESN'T COME THROUGH FOR US, WE WILL LOSE OUR HOME OF FIFTEEN YEARS AND WE ARE VERY FAR BEHIND WITH PAYMENT TOWARD THIS LAW SUIT, IRS, WEDDING, IT'S ALL SO OVERWHELMING. WE NEED PRAYER. GOD COULD EVEN LAY US ON SOMEONES HEART AS I KNOW HE COULD. HE IS FAITHFUL AND SOMEHOW WILL COME THROUGH FOR US. GOD BLESS YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO READ THIS AND IF YOU CAN HELP IN SOME WAY, GOD WILL REPAY YOU IN A WAY WE NEVER COULD. MANY BLESSINGS
This is in despiration.... I am amazed at the stories I have heard about People helping People. I am married to a wonderful man. Together we have one son. Our son is 4 years old. We have been married for five and a half years. We have been on staff at a church since we were married. In August of 2007, we were asked to reisgn our position at our church. We were the Children's Pastors... and loved every bit of our job! Because my husband and I were hurt so bad by this.. we dicided to take a break for a while from the ministry. We didn't want to try to be happy when we weren't happy on the inside. So now it has been almost five months since and we are getting farther and farther behind... Our bills just pile up and pile up. We live in Houston, TX. Our whole family lives in North Texas... It's not that far, but far enough to not be able to see them that much. Due to them being so far away.. we weren't able to go see anyone for Thanksgiving. The same is going to happen for Christmas. Someone that my husband works with gave us some toys for Christmas. We devided them with our sister who has three grandchildren. So, for Christmas we have about 5 toys for our son. We are not going to North Texas to see our family. We are so behind in monthly bills, that we owe about 3,000 dollars in current bills by the end of December... about 700 is due this week... I am asking for a miracle. We need someone to help... I know if our family could help.. they would, but we don't come from a family of money. We are simple people who need a break this Christmas. My husband does have a good paying job now. He is happy with it. But we need to catch up from the several months of no income coming in... We are afraid we will loose everything... our home.... our cars... electricy.... everything... Please, if there is anything you can do to help us... We need it. I know God will bless you ten fold.
Thanks so much, firstname.lastname@example.org
does someone actually help people like us that dont know where else to turn to? I have never seen or met anyone with teeth like mine. I have a wonderful son that is 15 months old, I would love to smile in a picture with him, well with a bright smile anyway, and thats not the only reason. I have very low confidence in myself only because my teeth. I have a full time job and still cant afford dental insurance and im also looking for part time work so i can possibly afford it. I am a 23 year old male and it is my only dream to have my teeth fixed by 25.i am trying so hard to do it on my own but in the meantime if someone could actually help please email me,greatly appreciated. email@example.com
I am mother of two small children. I am divorced left with all of the bills becuase I was crazy enough to let him talk me into putting all of the bills in my name. I have been stuggling for the past couple of years and have used every resource i have over and over. I have finally used all that I have available. I have used my childrens college savings more than once. I have taken out 401k loans which i tried to do again but was not able to since you can only have one loan out at a time. I work a full time job and many, many part time jobs. Sometimes I go 8 to 9 days straight working both jobs all day. My day starts at 4am and ends about 11pm. This causes me to barely see my kids or spend time with my fiance'. He works as well but hasnt been there long so he doesn't make that much.I also go to school on financial aid and student loans which I am almost done with in April. I own my own house which i bought when i was young and didn't know what i was getting into so I ended up with a variable rate and my insurance and taxes was not included in the payment. The payment started out at 600 a month and is now 1200 a month after only 4 years and it keeps going up. I have tried to get refinanced but you have to have a really good credit score to get a mobile home refinanced all of sudden. It has to be more than 720. The reason I need a miracle is because of all of this above and every week it seems to be something else that is costing us money and taking away from the bill money. Last week i had to get new tires because they were so bad that the metal was showing all the around on the inside of the two back tires and then today my fiance's car broke down on the way to work and it was 45 to tow it to his dads house and then it will be close to 300 to fix his car which luckily he knows how to do so we don't have to spend the money for that. I believe in god and i know every month I do not make enough to cover all of my bills but somehow they get paid. I have worked odd jobs just to get those few extra dollars for gas and to feed my kids. When we do have money to actually buy groceries its like christmas in our house which i am ashamed of. I always have to deny my kids the stuff they want but im happy to know that we have family members that will do things with them and take them places. My family is not well off and never has been. They are usually just as poor as we are but that is because of poor financial planning on their part and some other personal issues that I would rather not discuss. If anyone can help or has any ideas of what I can do to make some money quickly I am willing to do it. Even my 7 year old daughter is asking around to get some work to make some money. Unfortunately she knows too much of what we are going through but at the same time it is a good life lesson for her. I thank everyone in advance for any advice you may have and I am always willing to give someone my last penny when they need it no matter how much I need it. God bless you all!
Shortly after my husband and I married in 2003, my husband lost his job of 7 years and everything has been a downward spiral ever since. My daughter was born shortly after we married and it changed our lives. We acquired a home and my husband thought it would be a good idea to invest his savings in investment properties. We obtained one rental property which we would up moving in after we lost our first house. My husband finally found a job in 2005 and we spent the extra playing catch up on bills we fell behind on not to mention the fact that when he started working we had to spend an extra 400.00 / month for daycare which put a serious dent in our pocket. Needless to say, we wound up losing the other home as well and now we are in an apartment spending all of our income on trying to play catch up. It seems as if we are never going to catch up. We have robbed Peter to pay Paul for so long that now Paul is tapped out. I have a car in my mom's name that I am 3 months behind on and waiting to go outside one day and see it gone. We are behind one month on the rent and daycare is behind. Oh, I am sorry I forgot to mention the main contributor to our problems are payday loan. Neither one of us smoke, drink, or gamble. Although I have been spending an occassional $5 on mega million ticket in hopes that I might be lucky enough to really win millions and all of my problems will be solved. I need someone to take a chance and help me out or refer me to someone who can help me. I have a meeting with my credit union committee to try to convince them to give me and my huband a loan to help us get out of this mess we are in. I have started work with a debt consolidation agency in hopes that they will help us work out a budget that will get us out of this mess. Please help or pray for us that we won;t lose our car. Thank you for your help.
