Giving $500 to a family from California

I was emailed by the father of a family from southern California last week. They have struggled financially since the pandemic hit earlier this year and have fallen behind on some bills.

The father, who asked that I don't post the family's names, recently found a new job after being laid off in the spring. In order to keep getting to and from work, he needs reliable transportation. However, due to falling behind on payments, he was at risk of losing his car.

$500 will allow him to make two car payments and bring his bill close to current, and his first paycheck in a few weeks will get the family the rest of the way to getting right with the auto lender.

I'm an advocate of buying only as much car as you can afford, using cash, and avoid payments and interest. Yes, there are drawbacks to buying used. But once a car is paid for, it's yours. There's a sense of financial and life security that comes with knowing your car, your home or whatever else it is has been paid for and is YOURS. I highly advise avoiding car payments whenever possible. Your life will become far easier because of it.

Have a wonderful day and keep your requests coming.

Hi, I am in need of help for my higher and better studies. Basically I am a poor student in Bangladesh and want to establish my study in a better form in Germany. My academic result is remarkable indeed. And I can get admitted into a university in Germany with my result. But the hindrance is that I am financially unstable and my family, specially my mother is trying hard to get me admitted into a certain university in Germany. If I stay in my country then I would definitely lag behind for study gap and here I do not have any facility to build up my career in study. I would not be able to survive in this hostile society. So I am here to ask some financial support from any kind hearted, generous person. If you would help me then I would always be grateful toward you. Thank you.
