Single mom needs reliable car

Update posted by Jessie Buss On Oct 19, 2017

I was so ecstatically happy a few weeks ago when a friend of mine said he found a car for me for free.... that they were just going to gift it to me. I thought for sure that I would be able to scrounge up the money to get it insured and titled and registered in just a matter of weeks. So I renewed my things I had for sale on eBay and LetGo, I started to apply to even more jobs a little further from my house cuz I figured by the time that I actually got hired I would have the reliable transportation they told me that I'd have to have. But here we are, I'm supposed to go get the car this weekend (the owners graciously let it stay at their house for 2 weeks or so until I could get it legal) and not one of my things have sold, I've been nickeled and dimed on the prices, had buyers question me constantly, (are you sure you won't go lower?), as if I don't already have the bare minimum price listed. (WAY below what I paid). Not one of the places I've applied has called. I even tried doing some transcription stuff, my computer apparently is not good enough. I'm truly at a loss. I'm a part of a community that believes in doing random acts of kindness will make the world a better and kinder place..... I've had over 1200 people look at my page, and that's only by giving people the link, its not live on the actual website for people to see, and I've managed to raise $20..... in 6 months......6 months!! I'm forever grateful to the 2 people who have helped but, sorry feeling kinda cynical right now, if even half of those 1200 people had been willing to donate $1(the minimum) I'd have a legal car right now and would be able to take even just a pizza delivery job until I could find something better. I just want to be able to get a job, get off Medicaid, get of food stamps and be able to look at my daughter when she asks for something as simple as a new T-shirt, "yes, sure honey we can get you that new shirt for school". why is that so hard?! I'm sorry for going off on this tangent, I didn't mean to.... it just makes me so mad when I look through other people fundraising pages for boob jobs, or paying of a traffic tickets or yet another nose job and watch their totals steadily go up, and all I want to do is be able to provide for my daughter, stop mooching off my parents and help them with their bills once in awhile instead of the other way around! If you've made it this far through my rant, I thank you and.... I'm sorry.

so now I am definitively in need of a vehicle. On our way to higher ground in advance of hurricane Irma's landfall my sister (who up until that time had been my daughters ride to and from her therapy sessions and school) got T-boned by someone who ran a red light. Thankfully she is OK but the car, not so much. I have a few days yet before school starts back up from being closed. But am running out of time. Please help me if you can.

So most if not all of the previous cars I was looking at have since been sold. I have been looking online daily at cars for sale, and have actually found a few that are less than $3,000. I would rather get something a little newer than 15 years old, so that I don't have to worry about it breaking down. Any help at all that can be donated would be greatly appreciated as it is now less than 2 weeks until school starts. And with one of the people who I get rides from to and from my daughters therapy sessions, going back to work once school starts, I am afraid that I won't be able to take my daughter back and forth to her therapy sessions. I have attached a few options that available now. Please, please consider any donation, even as little as $1-$2.

I was so happy to be getting money back from my insurance company. I was in contact with the dealership to coordinate the down payment with how long I'd be paying for the car. I was going to go looking for auto insurance quotes. But then I got blindsided....I needed a cosigner...WHAT?! I thought I was good to go. So I have given up hope of getting a car at that dealership. I continued researching cars. I found a few, considerably older, all under $4500 . I thought great, that sounds like a plan, and its from dealerships that offers limited warranties even on older cars. But....apparently I need a cosigner with them too. I just can't win. So unfortunately I am having to raise the amount of money I am trying to fund raise for...not a happy camper. And on top of everything else, absolutely no one has called regarding the 15+ applications I submitted last week for jobs.

So I finally found out how much I'm getting back from my insurance. Much lower than I thought but it'll definitely help, am still short for a down payment though. Any amount given will be greatly appreciated.

So I just got off the phone with my ins company, since I cancelled my policy and it was prepaid in advance I may get as much as $600 back! That will definitely be helpful!!
