I am a 63 year old grandmother who loves to be outdoors, camping, travelling. For the past three years, I have several health problems that eventually will keep me from enjoying these activities. Two years ago I saved up and bought myself and my little dog an older car, I have used this car for two summers to be able to get back and fourth to work and get out in the country camping. It had everything I needed although it was difficult to get into and out of when I would bed down for the night with my little dog as my companion! it was dry, safe and really quite comfortable once I struggledd into my air mattress and sleeping bag, loved it though, I could get out overnight and enjoy life, it was an inexpensive way getting out and about and forget my health problems. Three months ago my car finally gave up the ghost and after having a friend who is a mechanic look at it, I knew I was never going to be able to afford to have it repaired. I love being able to get out of the city and into the country, it keeps me going through the winters, which are the hardest for me as I have arthritis and depression. I know that I cannot sleep in a tent as I have tried this and the dampness and coldness just makes the pain in my back, knees and hips very painful. I am trying to get money so that I can purchase a used but mechanically sound Campervans. I know this seems like such frivolous thing to ask for help for and I do understand why people would think this but for me it is a lifeline, I cannot expain what it means to me to be able to get out in the country and be able enjoy camping. I work but saving for my car meant that I turned off the gas heating for a winter so that I could purchase it but then my arthritis wasn't as bad as it is now and know it would not be able to do that again. I have no family to ask for help from and this is my last hope, I did not make this decision lightly to ask people for assistance to purchase my dream and I do understand that there are so many people out there with worse problems than I have but this is the thing that keeps me going through when the pain gets really bad. If you can help in any way it will be much appreciated and I will try to pay forward in some wa. Thank you for taking the time to read this, God bless.
