Bubbawheat's Car Repair Fund

My name is Nathan Withrow, but online I'm probably best known as Bubbawheat as the name I've been using ever since first getting on the internet. I'm the father of a nine year old daughter and husband to my stay-at-home wife of eleven years and living with a single income can be difficult at times especially while trying to recover from some financial difficulties in the past including unemployment, foreclosure, and several moves across three states.

We've been doing well for the past couple years or so, but we're still living mostly paycheck to paycheck and so when something happens to our car that requires a $1,000 bill, it's not something that we can just put on our credit card. Having to pay for this repair puts our life in a tailspin as we will be struggling to catch up with bills and our rent while incurring late fees that will make things increasingly difficult down the line.

This would mean a lot to our family, it's been difficult for us these past few years and just when it starts feeling like we're getting on top of things, something like this happens. We just need a little bit of help so that we can get through this and get back on track. It would help us out so much to know that we don't have to start worrying if utilities will start getting shut off if we get too far behind. We're up to date now, but it's real easy to fall behind when you have to drop $1,000 on a car repair. If you could share this where ever you can, it would help a lot.

And while I know at least some of you reading this may be aware of my movie review site Flights, Tights, and Movie Nights, and my Filmwhys podcast, I'd like to offer some sort of perk to get you involved through that avenue. If there's a movie I haven't reviewed, I'm open to taking requests, even if it's one I have reviewed and you think it deserves a revisit, you can shout that out as well. Thank you for reading and even if you can only spare $1 to send my way, it'll help. If every one of my Twitter followers could send $1 my way, I'd be set. Thanks for reading and listening to my story.
