Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read my personal fundraising quest. My name is Melanie. I am a mother of 4. I am here trying to raise money to fix or purchase a car for employment. I lost my job Dec. 4, 2012. When I was working, I was using my parents car which is no longer an option available to me. I need to get back to work as soon as possible. Bills are piling up fast. My very understanding partner is trying his best, but 750 bi-weekly isn't covering the bills. Need to fix the Sonata we already have or get another car. (Sonata - windsheid, tires, timing belt, plus bearing for lower part of motor which repair cost the most.) I've seen decent running cars on craigslist but most cost over $3000. The sooner I can get a safe running vehicle to obtain work, the sooner we can get health insurance and past due bills caught up. I love being with my children, but I can't suport them on love alone. Mom must go back to work and be a productive member of society, and lighten the burden on my partner. I have come across many careers I could apply for but not having a car has been a major obstacle. Please help me become a productive member of society once again, and achieve my goal of obtaining a vehical so that I can return to work and support my family. Thank you so much for you time, and God Bless!
