Emergency fund to get back on track

Hello, I'm a recently honorably discharged US marine. Since I left the Marine corps, I have been working toward a career in acting and stunt performance, and been saving up for a Screen Actors Guild membership. 

I was on track to be able to pay for the membership and sustain a modest living. But unfortunately recently I got into an traffic accident, and all my savings have been used on recovering the vehicle from the tow yard, future lawyer fees,  and my back has been in pain, it's difficult to bent and move around without hurting so possibly need to receive chiropractic adjustment. And that is probably the most scary thing, I have to recover my back in order to work stunt jobs.

And now that I don't have my vehicle. I have a really hard time with getting to my part time job and any future acting jobs. And I won't be able to get my membership to continue pursuing my goal.

I almost never ask others for help, because I grew up as the older sibling of two. I had to take care of myself and help out my family. And I am the only one my family can depend on since my younger brother has down syndrome. I mostly rely on myself for any financial issues.

I know I won't be able to do this myself in time, so I'm reaching out and I'm giving this a try and hopefully there are some generous, helpful people who could help me get out of this ditch I fell into. The fund will be used to get a used car I can use to commute around to work, paying the lawyer, and helping get me back on track to pay for my union membership.

Thank you for taking time and reading.
