Help me please! I need a van to live in!

Hi! My name is James Sclar. I am not your average homeless dude, I actually have a life, and I am trying in all earnesty to make it in this world. I have had so many ups and downs I wasn't able to find a job from when I got out of the marines in 2008. I finally do have a great job, now, however I just started it, and haven't made any money just yet. I also attend Cabrillo College, and I recieve some money via the G.I. Bill. I have enough money to eat, and go to school, however I haven't made enough to afford a place to live. I have always moved back and forth between my Mom and Dad's place, I have spent floor time at my aunts and uncles and my Nana's home. I was 20 years old when I joined the USMC to get out and make something of myself. Now Im 30 and still no money and no home. I never stop each day to pursue my dreams of being an American Ninja Warrior. Every day I train and train and train. I exercise in all areas needed for TOTAL VICTORY! I hope someday to finally succed at some sort of degree in my college pursuits, as I have been in college now for 14 years and haven't anything, not even and A.A. degree. I am currently living with my Father, who can no longer accomodate me. I am moving back in with my Nana for now, and I will be saving up money to buy a van to live in. I will be using this van as my TURTLES SHELL. I am a turtle spirit, and I have lived in a van before. I find it the most enjoyable way to live my life. I am a turltle and I have to have my home with me and carry it on my back. I will be aiming for $5,000 to specifically buy a certain van I found on Craigslist that is selling for just that price. IF I can get ANY kind of donation, a $1 or $5 ... something anything! helps. I really appreciate any support from my friends and family. I know people don't always agree with my lifestyle, but right now I am not asking you to agree with it, I just need a lil help to get my self a home to live in, and not be on the streets again. I am not your average homeless dude. I am James Sclar, United States Marine, American Ninja Warrior, and spiritual surfer adventurer!
