I am trying to go visit my Mom and 94 year-old grandpa for Thanksgiving. I live in Indiana and they live in Florida. I haven't seen them in over a year due to financial restraints. I lost my job earlier this year and have, thankfully, found a new job; however, I took a significant pay cut. I was just told I have no tread left on my tires and that I need new tires, which will run me at least $500 for a decent set. I feel like I can't catch up and I'm drowning. My mom is not in a position to help me as she cares for my grandpa full time. They live off his pension and there isn't much left over. I am not the type of person that usually asks for help, but I came across this site and thought it may be a sign for me to reach out. Any contribution will help and I promise to pay it forward once I'm in a better position. I just want to be able to spend the holiday with my family and get there safely. I'm not asking to be funded for the whole trip, just enough to either pay for the gas or the tires to relieve a little financial stress. Again, thank you very much and I promise to pay it forward.
