My name is Alexandria and I need to buy a car!
I am a 23 year old with a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature. I attended Wells College in Aurora, NY and loved every minute of my experience there. The world was a place of opportunities and exciting new adventures!
But like all students, my academic career came to an end. Stemming from my passions for words and people, I found a per diem position in my local school district working as a clerical substitute. Basically, if a secretary can't come to work, I go and fill in for them. It's interesting and challenging work to bounce from school to school meeting new people and assisting students of all ages. The only problem is that it lacks benefits and doesn't guarantee a steady income.
I'm working hard to find a full-time position that I can devote my passions to. I'd love to find a writing position, an editing job, or a even more creative marketing career! But these jobs are difficult to find, and with loan payments, my income barely covers my expenses.
In case you were wondering: this is where my fundraiser comes in!
The used car my parents have been lending me is on it's last legs, my mechanic says it won't last the rest of January and certainly won't pass it's next inspection. If I could buy a car without needing a loan, it would be a huge step towards my future. I would be able to job hunt more effectively. Once I get a job, I will be able to commute to and from work each day. As I build up my savings, I will be able to finally move out of my parent's home into a (tiny) apartment because I will have transportation of my own.
With the proceeds of this fundraiser, I hope to buy a used but reliable car to last me several years. I don't need anything fancy, just something to get me from point A to point B without constant worry. Your help could give me the leg up I need in my quest for independence and a stable occupation. So please, if you'd like to help, I'd greatly appreciate it!
Do I Offer Rewards? Yes!
I will be mailing wearable hugs to my biggest supporters! A donation of $50 will get you a simple wearable hug, while a donation of $100 will get you a warmable wearable hug for cold days or sore shoulders. There is no limit on the amount of hugs I am willing to give, so if you'd like one, please donate!
