I am the one needing help this time. I promise to pay it forward.

Requesting: $500

Location: New Market, MD

Hello! I am a single mother of a 15 1/2 year old son. I have been a business owner, office manager and bookkeeper in the past. I have always tried to help my friends and family in need. I always jump at the chance to do what I can for others. Several months ago, I was laid off from my well paying job because they reorganized the department. I was heartbroken. I loved my company, they were like family to me. I was the Bookkeeping Manager there. Since then, I have been on unemployment and I have found it very difficult to find a job that is similar. I am trying so very hard to keep the house that I am renting because in January 2012, my son and I were kicked out of my house that I owned with my husband at the time. My son is not his, so he really didn't have much compassion. It was a very difficult time for my son and I and I immediately did what I had to do and found a house down the street that was still in his school district. We have been here just under a year and a half now. I do not want to uproot him again as things finally became stable for him. I am behind on every bill imaginable and I just need a little help. I am job searching daily and attending workshops through my county to help with the job search process. I want to be back on my feet sooner than later and be able to help others again. The last thing I was able to do was offer to pay my friends cell phone bill of $60 because her engine blew on her car. Now I can't do anything for anyone because I have so much that I have to cover. This is not me and I cannot wait to get back to who I am.

I desperately need money to pay my car payment and insurance and internet bill so that I can keep my car and continue to job search. I am already about 45 days behind on my car payment and I fear that the repossession process will start soon. Without a car, I won't even be able to get to interviews and if I get a job, I won't be able to get there. This could turn out to be a horrific situation for me. I just need a little boost to get ahead. I promise to pay it forward as soon as I am able to.

Please help. I can't imagine having to tell my son that we have to move again, that he would lose his bedroom that he set up and made "his" after being uprooted by my ex-husband. He watched me go through a horrible divorce and he is so angry at his ex-stepfather for everything he did to us. I don't want him to get upset again. Please help anyway you can. On my life, as soon as I get a job and back on my feet, I will make a large food donation to my local food bank. I will even look into volunteering there.
