Hello, my name is George and I will be short and honest, I grew up poor, but worked hard to build good credit and got a credit card when I was probably too young to need one. Having grown up poor, it was easy to buy things that I didn't have before. I never really had the chance to go to college, but I did achieve the rank of Eagle Scout which is probably the only accomplishment in my life that I can be proud of. I have always lived paycheck to paycheck. I have always paid my bills on time and have been responsible for the mess I have gotten myself in since 1999. Now I am $14,000 in debt thanks to high interest rates and Discover card being greedy. I am now 34, recently lost my job, but found another one after many months of searching. Things are even tougher for me now as the job I now have does not offer a retirement plan or health benefits, but I figure having money coming in from a job is better than no job. I am trying to get back on my feet, but the damage has taken a tole on my credit and I have bill collectors calling every day. I am embarassed to even be asking, but I figure my life can not get any worse and I already feel degraded and at the lowest point in my life with no end to my financial turmoil in sight. I would appreciate any donation that you can possibly give even if it is just a penny. For me, every penny adds up and I would greatly appreciate any help that a good hearted person can give. I am living in Round Rock, TX and although everything has taken a tole on my pride, I am trying to keep my faith in God for an answer to my prayers. I promise to say a prayer for anyone that can help even if it is just in the advice that they give. Even more so, I want to get to a point where I can one day return the favor, but right now, I can't even manage to help myself get back on my feet much less anybody else. I don't know when this will end, but I pray that God will help the right person to see this and someone find it in their hearts to help me get back on my feet. Thank you for all of your help and please know that I appreciate any help that you could give in helping me get back on my feet and getting my pride back so I won't feel ashamed. I am not looking to get rich, just back to even so that even with the job I have I can perhaps manage to come back and donate to someone else and perhaps finally build a good life of my own. God Bless you in your generosity.
