Hi, my name is Bob.
Our family car completely broke down, and my kids and I are asking for your kind help today because I have no other way to financially fix this horrible situation for my family.
I was driving back to our apartment when our car suddenly stopped working. I tried several times to get it started, but our car wouldn't start. I finally had to call a tow truck and have it towed to a mechanic. Then, a few days later, I got the bad news.
The mechanic said our 2012 Toyota Camry engine was destroyed because the timing chain had broken and all the engine valves were bent. His estimate to replace the engine is 7,500.
Unfortunately, the company I've been loyal to for many years significantly reduced my salary when the pandemic started, which wiped out my bank account. As a result, my kids and I are literally living check-to-check. So I do not have the money to fix our car and no money to make additional payments on another used car.
My kids and I are hoping to raise $7,500 to either fix our car or buy a reliable, low-mileage used car that can help me drive my kids safely to and from school every day, get groceries, and drive to work.
ANY donation amount you choose will be greatly appreciated, and my kids and I thank you for your compassion.
And thank you so much for taking a moment to read this today and for sharing this with your friends and family on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others).
Sincerely grateful to you,
Bob & Kids
