Help Foster Mom with Auto Repair

Hello. I am seeking $5,000 for auto repair. 

A few weeks ago, I was blessed with the opportunity to be a foster parent to my maternal grand babies. Shortly after they were placed in my care, the transmission in my car stopped working, therefore; I must rely on public transportation to take them to their physician appointments and to the grocery store. Their double stroller is heavy and does not have adequate storage to store groceries. I am unable to use a private car services such as Lyft and uber because I’d have to carry two car seats and a double stroller.

Not only will I benefit, my grandchildren will be the greatest beneficiaries. They will be able to ride in their private vehicle to the grocery store, parks, and physicians’ appointments. The youngest baby has a medical disability that requires her to be seen by a specialist at Children’s Hospital which is an hour away from where we live. Your contribution will bless us to not rely on BART and buses.

Furthermore, your monetary gift will be greatly appreciated. I will be most grateful as It will lift the burden of riding public buses. I can secure their car seats in the car and store their double stroller in the trunk. On the other hand, weather has changed, temperatures have fallen, and the rainy season has begun. Your gift means that we will not spend another rainy day standing at the bus stop.

It is my deepest desire to raise $5000 before December 25, 2019. Thank you.
