Help a Single Mom of 3 Get a Car

Mariah has always been a beautiful soul and willing to give the shirt off her back to help a perfect stranger. Recently, Mariah has been going through a divorce that has become messy after her ex husband walked out on the family. Due to battling for custody of their three children, her ex husband showed up in the middle of the night, took her vehicle, and traded it and his own in on a new vehicle because he knew she would get the van when the divorce was finalize. She has been the sole provider for the children since he walked out and she deserves better than this. On February 20th, there is a custody hearing that she has now been left with no way to get to and she has been left without a vehicle to use to provide for her family, as he tries to paint her out to be an unfit mother. This couldn’t be further from the truth. I am hoping people will find it in the kindness of their heart to help this wonderful woman keep her children and more easily be able to provide for them. Mariah has been trying to sell her possessions to come up with money for a vehicle, but I think our kindness will pull through for her in time for the custody hearing.

EDIT: *a note from Mariah* Any funds that surpass what she needs to acquire a vehicle will be put towards child care and lawyer fees for the custody battle. Your overwhelming love, kindness and support has been a true blessing that she will never forget.
