Quality of life, Bills and simple needs

Jenny nee, Phoenix

Jenny is my daughter, a 21 year old cancer patient who is undergoing her 3rd round of Chemo. She has a deteriorating quality of life and is unable to work. I am seeking donations for her for numerous reasons including bill payment and a fund for worst case scenario. You can read more about her at her website at www.zoesterimages.com If you can not donate to an individual please donate to one of the numerous Cancer related charities out there. Thank you in advance.

Tuition for school

Helpstude, Pitzer Co

A little bit about me, I am currently a biology and math-economics major at Pitzer college. I transferred here last year, making this my second year. Currently I am conducting research , helping localize a protein vital in acetylation of newly synthesized histones, this is important because it has great applications in cancer treatment though some years away. In addition to my lab research, I also spend a great deal of time just working on math of my own or tutoring other students in Calc I and II, and working out!! My current G.P.A. is about a 3.4. Now my situation, I transferred to Pitzer College with a large amounts of credits from the University of La Verne and Pitzer only provides financial aid for 32 units (one class=one unit), which translates to essentially 4 classes a semester for 8 semesters, my problem arises from this fact. I came in with 16 Pitzer transferable units (in reality it was 20 but they only accepted 16), but not all of them counting towards my majors but instead towards GE requirements from La Verne. Because some classes did not transfer towards my majors here at Pitzer and because I need a few extra classes for my math-econ major I need to stay an additional year at Pitzer College to graduate with my degrees. Knowing this, last summer I started working. However, now while I am taking 5 classes and conducting research it is difficult to find much time to work, however, I am still working about 11-13 hours a week. Realistically this is not nearly enough; tuition runs about $55,000 for a year. I don’t come from a family with money, but we work hard and sacrifice a lot for me to go to school and in being the first in my family to attend college it means a lot for my family and I to reach my goal. For this reason I am asking you to please donate what you can or if you can’t please email a friend or family member a link to my story. Additionally, if you wish to verify my story this is my schools number (909) 621-8208, or if you want a copy of my transcripts, more info about my research (I’ll email you my thesis if you want), or you just have questions to ask me feel free to email me at angeles890@yahoo.com. Thank you for your time and consideration

To avoid homelessness in two days.

Help my a, Cincinnat

I've never considering asking for money online like this, and to be honest, it makes me feel like less of a man. But, I don't care right now. This is not about ME, it's about the love of my life and her amazing children. Her name is Kathie. She works 10 hours a day, 5 days a week and barely makes enough to support herself and her three children. She lives about 90 miles away from me right now and we see each other weekly. We can't live together until I save up enough money to move, but moving isn't our concern right now either. Money has been worse than usual lately and she got a short check last week. The rent is past due, and the landlord is taking her to court on Tuesday. Unless she can pay the rent by then, she and her kids will be homeless. I'd do ANYTHING to keep her out of the homeless shelter. I can't stand the thought of such an amazing, caring and loving person having to do such a thing simply because she's underpaid and overworked. There's nothing else I can do, I'm broke. I've asked every family member and every friend to borrow money and she has as well. We've got about half the rent so far through loans and some small donations from friends and family, but it's not enough yet. Every little bit helps. Please, help me to help her. I'd drive there and pick them up myself and let them stay here if I owned a car, but since I don't, this is what I can do to help. Again, please help if at all possible. Thank you all!

Pay Off My Debts

Arkadianm, Melbourne

So I'm lying in bed. It's about 4 in the morning here. I'm feeling rather sleepy, and lonely too. I have had just over 800 views to my site so far over the last week. I'm surprised to say the least. Although, my attempt to get people to help me out is very unsuccessful as I have earned nothing whatsoever so far. The problem? I'm just a sad boy and I don't know the "right way" to get people to help me out. Plus... If I were you my "alarm bells" would be going off saying "who does he think he is". Anyway I had a feeling it wouldn't really be successful. I was thinking someone might donate at least a dollar but in this economy I'd be lucky to get fifty cents. Who would donate to a stranger for no reason. Here's my proposal... I'm desperate... I need lots of help. And probably some of the help I need is psychological to deal with my smoking and spending. I've stopped spending and haven't for a while so that's good. I propose you give me a dollar. For every dollar I will smile and be happy for a day. If you give me fifty dollars I smile for fifty days. If you give me two dollars I smile for two days. I see you get the drift. I have at least thirty thousand smiles to go until my "sad face" phase is completely broken and the world is fixed. Please find it in your hearts to help me. I would be forever grateful to you. ** Arkadian **

I desperately need to see my boyfriend

B.B. 18, NY

Hey guys, I absolutely HAVE to go see my boyfriend ASAP. When my parents found out I was saving money to help see him after his suicide attempt they cut off all the help they were giving me to survive on my near non-existent pay. Thanks to that I now have only $35 extra to my name after bills and don't know what to do. I have no car, and no steady job. I really really really need help to go see him. I've been so worried since I heard I haven't been able to eat or sleep and I honestly considered stripping in order to help pay for my plane ticket. I just don't know what else to do...I'm really really begging here. Please Help! I'll be eternally grateful!
