Asking for a holiday miracle

Hello everyone I'm Michelle and I'm asking for some help this holiday season! On October 30th 2019 i was in a pretty bad accident that totaled my car of 16 years and gave me a pretty good whiplash injury. My insurance company gave me a small amount of money for my car, but its not enough for a down payment. I am a licensed massage therapist but work has been terribly  slow and unfortunately i am not able to save any money to put aside for a down payment. I've never done this before and its been a struggle to find rides for work . So this holiday season i ask you if you can help me get to my goal so i may get a decent car for this Christmas i would be forever grateful.
