A plea for help: My car is in the shop
Here’s the deal: my car is in the shop and is facing a costly repair of $1300 after a major mechanical malfunction. The parts have to be manufactured in a shop which is why it is so expensive. I can pay in installments but I need to put half down when the job is done. Over the past few days, I’ve received donations to help me cover that when combined with my own money. But I’d like to pay more than half because that will reduce the installments.
I have student loans and other bills. So this is an expense I cannot afford. If you’ve been in my situation then you know the emotional and physical pain this causes. I’m not dealing with this very well, to be honest. I’m an emotional wreck. I had a big break down at work when the car basically failed— and it limped to the shop the following morning.
This is the first car I’ve ever bought. It’s my baby. I love my Beckett. She’s a great car. And I miss her—and after a foot of snow, I really miss her. Beckett is an AWD drive vehicle. She gets through the snow no problems. Aside from some cosmetics like rust—she’s a beauty and drives like a dream.
And this is the third major issue in four months. I had just rebuilt my savings when a dead battery depleted it at the beginning of the year. In November, the rear brake line broke. I started the GoFund me page for that one and got $200—which helped cover the half the repair cost.
I’m very grateful for the people who are donating to a complete stranger. You have no idea how much this kindness warms my heart. There’s good in this world. And this proves it.
Even if you can’t donate, share the link. Anything helps.
Again, thank you for the enormous generosity I’ve already received. It’s helping reduce the stress I’m under right now.
