free money to help pay bills

I don't agree that nobody is receiving help here.  Help comes in various forms.

If people are looking to be financially RESCUED from situations that have long been needing addressed and have been allowed to reach emergency status, then I would say the most any the average visitor can do is give them some guidance to get them on the right track (to me, that has value).  In those cases, a few bucks won't help and I, for one, don't throw good money at an incurable problem.  We all have our own criteria for deciding who we help and nobody should be judged for it.

Here is what goes through my head when someone posts an urgent need:

1.  How did they get themselves into this situation (for example, the family that can't feed four children, yet has another on the way probably won't get my sympathy for being irresponsible)?

2.  How will a contribution actually help them in the long term (often times it's just a band-aid that's just deferring the inevitable)?

3.  What is their plan for getting out of this mess (almost always, there isn't one)?

And that's what I call round 1 qualifiers.

In short, don't think that just because you post an urgent need that there are benefactors chomping at the bit to blindly hand over their money (would you??).  You're going to have to do your part in solving your own problems.

From what I have seen in the posts, this site does more than any other to help you do that.

Hi

I am sorry you got laid off your job. Did you call 211 for to see about temporary cash assistance if available in your state? How old are your children? 

What kind of work did you do before? Have you looked at the senior center in your area? In  my area people sign up to help seniors out and if you are called you can put down what you would like to be paid to help them out. 

You can try modestneeds.com and they have income requirements but give it a try. There is wishuponahero.com and look at some of the post here to give you an idea of other jobs you can do. 

Do you want a  work from home job? Check out womenforhire.com

and if you need more information you can check out my blog

I certainly will keep you in my prayers. 

I know it hard times out there

take care

I am a single mother of three. Two of my three children are on the autism spectrum. This make finding daycare next to impossible. So, work is also hard to come by. My school loans fell so far behind that now I can't go to school at all. I can't even file for bankruptcy because I don't have the means to do so. I don't know if anyone can or is even willing to help me with financial help. If I could get my loans and debts paid off that I currently owe, I know I could keep my head above water after. I just need a break. Currently my bills exceed $8,000. I have done my very best to keep from incurring any more. This amount is more late fees than anything.

I have spent my life trying to help others with keeping food in their homes. Taking out loans to help others who felt like the world was closing in on them so tight that they couldn't breathe, but then I fell behind and it seems that no one could help me. I pray, I meditate, and still try to do what good I can for others because I know what if feels like when you're under these pressures. You feel alone and like no one cares for you. When someone does reach out I can only imagine that it provides some hope for a better future. Though, that is something I have not yet experienced.

My husband and I are both employed by Walmart.  A year ago we bought a little 'fixer upper'.  Really cute house, but we ran out of money.  In January my husband got sick, we have been off work since then, going back and forth to the doctor two and three times a week.  Our little home still just sits there, not finished, and we are stuck in a rental where it costs us $800 a month just for rent and gas.  We still have to pay electric, phone, food, fuel to get to the doctor, etc.  The short term disability is just over $125 a week, and that is just for him being sick.  I can't collect anything because I am home taking care of him and everything else.  What do we do?  If we could just get our little home finished, we would not pay rent or a mortgage or a gas bill because it is all electric.  I don't know what to do.

As to all of those places, I have already been. And they all look so good on paper but in real life........not so much. I have had more doors closed in my face and more dead ends and brick walls, then you can count. At 10 AM tomorrow I will have no choices left, even local help ministries here where we are stranded can not or will not help us. I can not even get churches to ask their parishioners.

Life in America, for Americans is changing.

How did you get yourself in 10,000 dollars of debt??? Maybe get a roomate to help with the costs or file bankruptcy. 

You are young to be in that much debt unless you took out student loans?

Good luck
