Help Reinstate My License

Friends and Family,

I need your help, even small amounts will add up.  Last fall, I discovered my license had been suspended due to Sun Pass (Toll) violations in a vehicle registered to me, the majority of the violations occured while I was out of town working.  Over the past several months, I went to court countless times and spent several thousand dollars to have an attorney represent me.  I was successful overall in court and was fortunate enough to have leniency on the legal portion, due to providing proof of my whereabouts and only incurred fines, which have been paid in full.  At this point I'm now able to reinstate my license upon payments to each Sun Pass violation however due to the age of these violations they are in collections and are approximately $380 for each toll and I have 25 violations. Which is $9000 for what would be less than $50 in tolls. 

I took the steps to limit my living expenses and had been saving money to reinstate my license upon conclusion of the court process.  Due to my fiscal performance at work, my year end bonus payout due to me was $4650, which combined with my savings and salary would have been more than enough to remedy this situation in full.  However, in late January I lost my job and was denied my final bonus payout, which has put me in my current situation.  

I'm having extreme difficulty finding a job due to my failure to have a valid drivers license and this has caused several missed opportunities in the past few months due to not having a valid drivers license, which is a condition of employment.  This whole experience has been embarassing and humbling and at this point, this is my last option to obtain the funds, reinstate my license and return to work.  Any amount that you're able to help me with would put me closer to the amount I need and, I would gladly repay you, as I return to employment.
