Help me get a down payment for a car.

I’m John, I don’t really know how to do this,
I recently left Lafayette Louisiana after Covid essentially killed the restaurant I owned, and I still have 35k worth of personal debt attached to it. I left because I needed a new start. I came to Colorado, got a restaurant gig and started looking for schools for massage therapy, and alas, I got in and some how got financial aid, kinda felt like I was moving forward, and I was and it felt good and Then round 57 of covid decided to change that. Forcing all restaurants back to Togo only, the place I work cut their own hours and mine with them. Can’t find a second job to work with my school hours, and current job. Current job can only give me so many hours, and I can’t afford transportation to school 4 days a week and I’m falling behind on child support for my son Jasper. Had myself a huge pity party but my friends didn’t let me stay there for long, they reminded me that I’m doing this so I can have a better future and life, so I’m gonna do what I gotta do. One of my best friends agreed to co-sign for me if I can get a down payment for a car, which I was approved with his co-sign, if I can make my goal I’ll be able to get ride share jobs and food delivery to supplement my income so I don’t have to drop out of school just to continue working dead end jobs the rest of my life. I don’t even know if I deserve it because these are hard times for a lot of people and I’m just another face in the crowd, but yeah I guess it’s worth a shot.
Even a few dollars helps. 53416986_1608411905678124_r.jpeg
