Help Get my kids and I transportation again

Hi my name is Chelsea, and I am a 28 year old mother of two. I have a eight-year-old boy and a nine year old girl. 

I’m fundraising because Two weeks before Christmas I had picked my kids up off the bus and started down the road to go to my moms house, my car started acting up. Every light on my dash was blinking on and off, my windshield wipers were going on and off, my horn was honking, The windshield wiper fluid was pouring down the windshield, my locks were locking and unlocking, and by this point I was almost to my moms driveway. I went to go pull in and I lost my power steering as soon as I got barely pulled in my car started smoking so I threw it in park immediately grab my kids book bags from the front seat and grab them out as we went running up the driveway we were a few feet away from the car before it burst into flames. It took the fire department working on the flames a while to get it put out because the Flames got into my gas line. 

Unfortunately I had just bought my car earlier this year. My last car had quite a few issues with it and I got my jeep back in March 2021. When I got my jeep I called the insurance company and let them know that I wanted the old vehicle taken off the policy, and to put my jeep on the policy with full coverage liability and everything I would need as if I was paying on a vehicle because I got a personal loan from my bank. I was still paying my vehicle off. But insurance left my old car on the policy and just added the jeep but didn’t put all the extra coverage on it like I requested. We never received a copy of my changes and I never thought about it again. So with that being said insurance will not help me pay off my jeep or help me get a new one. I owe a little over $500 on my jeep and I would like to be able to have a little something to put down on a vehicle. I know this is a longshot but if everyone could please at the very least share my fundraiser so my kids and I can get back to a normal routine. It has been very tough having to rely on others to help me get my kids to and from school, And for me to get to and from work. 

I didn’t make a GoFundMe sooner because I thought that it wouldn’t be that big of a deal because I thought insurance would cover the cost. Then I found out the insurance wouldn’t cover it but at that point I was working. We ended up getting taken out of work and school because our household got Covid. I was out of work for 2 weeks and I returned to work on Monday. Then the school called yesterday and I had to pick my daughter up and we are back on quarantine. So I definitely could use a little financial help to get back on track so I can have a vehicle to get to work and take my kids to school so that I can get caught up on my other bills now. 

I Will be using whatever money I receive to help me pay off my jeep and to put down on a car or to purchase a car which ever the amount allows me to do. I appreciate each and everyone of you taking the time out of your day to read about my children and I going through one of the most tragic experiences we’ve been through. Mainly we are just grateful that we got out. It could’ve been so much worse. Also everyone’s prayers are appreciated as well. It’s been almost a month and my kids still deal with anxiety from the experience. Thank you for all the support!
