  4. Hi my name is Wendy Tennant I have been disabled since 1998 for three years I raised my two daughters’ with little to no help from my ex husband. This is the same man that tried to kill me in 1995. Then I meet the man of my dreams and everything was going great until I started to remember what I buried for years. Being molested by my sister from the age of 3 until 11. I told my parents about it a number of time’s to make it stop and all I was told was that she would never do this to me. So I started thinking it was okay until I left at the age of 17 (1983). I moved in with my ex and that was when the abuse from him started until he almost killed me in 1995. From 1995 until 2001 I was raising my girls on my own this is when I meet the man of my dreams. He stepped in as dad for the girls and treats them like his own. We put them thru college and are still paying. Because we had little to no help from him. I just slowly start to shut down because in my past My family would say your not worth it and you mess everything up, because everyone in my family didn’t care I did care what happen to me. This is one of the reasons why we are in money problems because I just didn’t care, what happened to me. For years I just dealt with it until I couldn’t any more. I really care what happened now but it my be to late and now I am under doctors care. I suffer from PTSD and severe depression. I know with their help I am worth it. They also helped me thru the death of my Mom 12-13-12. But now we are going to lose our house if $16,500 isn’t paid by June 28 o our house will go out to auction on Aug 15th. for back taxes. I have let my family down and now if we lose the house I don’t know how my mental health is going to take it. Any amount would help out. PLEASE can you help. mamawendy26@yahoo.com Thank you for your time, Wendy

  13. Hello I'm in the middle of rock and a hard place. Being a single mom for over 20 yrs I decided to go to college to be a Medical Assistant. I've completed & passed 14 subjects but after getting evicted from my apt of 8 yrs I had to put what I could move myself into storage & move in my moms. Its a tiny apt for me & my 2 kids to stay. I need a car to get me to finish my last 3 subjects of school then I can move on with my career & get back on my feet. Sometimes you need a little help to get there. But my family doesn't have extra income or they would help me. I would greatly appreciate anyones help.

  18. Hi, my name is Sarah Turner. I've been reaching out to my community for about a month but i havnt found any help yet, I first want to tell you a little bit of my story. i have three beautiful children Elijah who is 5, Ella who is 3, and Emily who is 1. when Ella was three months old she was diagnosed with failure to thrive and has lived between home and the hospital. It's a constant battle to get her to eat and get her weight up she still isn't on the growth chart but she is trying hard :) she has a mountain of medical bills and medical needs that we can no longer keep up with because a year ago when Emily was born I had to stop working due to my health which started declining during my pregnancy with her, a few weeks before i was to deliver i experienced severe pain under my right rib and immediately went to the hospital. Shortly after a few tests and scans were done the doctor and his nurse rushed and and told me they had to take the baby right away because i was in kidney failure and my life and the babies was in danger. Emily was born a happy healthy beautiful girl and i was taken for more tests and surgeries. Several surgeries and medications later i was doing better. then a months later everything started going down hill again, they found out i had Lupus and RA. It's a struggle everyday but I will never give up and let Lupus win! So as you can imagine with only my husband working and between my medical costs and Ella's it has been extremely hard to pay the bills we have and we are losing where we are staying because we aren't able to pay all of our rent anymore. So I thought I'd reach out to my community for help and prayers for my family. I'm asking that you please pray for our family and ask your friends to do so as well, and I do know that it is hard times for everyone right now but i have faith that someone will be able to help us either financially or materialistically, if there is anyway that you or someone you know would be able to help us out financially I've set up an account with Go fund me which is a safe and secure way to donate the link to it is http://www.gofundme.com/Give-a-home any amount helps! You can also contact me at my email at sarahlynturner1988@gmail.com i really need to get the down payment for a home before we dont have a place to go if there is any way you can help please do. thank you so much for your time and prayers God bless.

  21. Dear Ms Gertz and Mr Ressler,
    Our house will be auctioned in Houston County Georgia on January 7th 2014. This will be demoralizing for us. I mostly fear for our two boys; their world will unravel. Please help us. I know there are others who are in worse situations; please help them too. You have the power to alleviate so much pain and loss with just the stroke of your pen. I confess, I envy folks like you. I've often imagined winning the lottery and giving most of it away. I've always been a good man. I just need one good stroke of luck to smooth everything out again. It would make such a big difference in all of our lives. Please continue to do this merciful work. Thank you.
    Matthew Smith

  22. Good Day:

    I'm writing to see about obtaining donations towards medical bills. We have set up a fund raising site at rally.org for a friend who needs help with medical issues. She needs surgery to replace both knees, she has had 5 surguries over the past 4 years on both legs, at this point she is in need to knee replacements in both knees. She is unable to go to work, and wants to be able to get back on her feet and be able to go back to work.

    She does not have the money she needs to have the surgery, and has some past medical bills to pay as well. We have set up a page on rally.org. below is the link. Any help will be greatly appreciated.


    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I am an older, single dad, (will be 60 this year) raising my two daughters who are 9 and 6 years old. I had cancer surgery in (August 2013). There were complications from that and I had to have another surgery to correct it. I'm slowly healing, but it's taking a while. I'm in pain a lot, but I'm keeping up a good face for my girls. These health issues have caused unexpected expenses and I have gotten behind in just about everything. The money I get from disability was already barely enough to make ends meet. At this moment we are in danger of having our water and power cut off, as well as facing eviction. In addition, I have a medical bill that needs to be paid, but I'll have to worry about that later. Right now we just need to be secure in a living space. I tell my girls everything will be alright, and that God will help us. I started to tell them about our Forever House, where we won't have to move from. Please help us stay in our home. God bless you

  25. My name is Kyme' Hart and am appealing to you in hope that you will assist me in sponsoring me to receive a Service / Special Skills Dog. I have Cerabel Palsy/Epilepsy and one of these dogs would really help me with my daily routine by detecting seizures, seeing me through them, opening and closing doors,turn lights on and off among many other tasks. I found a dog that is being trained; however, I need $2,000 for a deposit and $4.000 before I receive her. I have to travel to Plymouth, Indiana, the $6,000 doesn't include travel and stay costs. If you would like confirm this with the trainer her name is Rachel Miller, she is a certified Service/Special Skills Dog trainer and her email address is Nothernindianasrvicesdogs@yahoo.com.

    Any and all assistance in the sponsorship is greatly needed and appreciated
