Somebody decided to do a horrible hit-and-run on me .  The incident  has left me in shock and it was the scariest moment of my life . My airbags went off  but thanking God himself that i wasnt hit by them.  I am fine but my vehicle  is not . My insurance covers the damages but the car is no longer mine as my car is considered 'totalled' and that was not what i was expecting. This not only has me carless, but it has my heart broken and in a bad bind . My car was something that i was PROUD to call mine until somebody decided to do such a terrible thing and not  even care . As alot of people know, i am a single parent of 3 young children and all 3 of them count on me for everything . I only have a rental car for so long and after the insurance  stops, i will no longer have it . Its going to be hard just to get my kids to and from school (education is very important to me) and for me to get to work . I cant afford to miss work as i will lose my job and me and my children  might even become homeless .  i cant afford uber everyday and i cant afford to rent a car weekly right now . Starting over is one of the hardest things to do, but if anybody knows me, then you know i am loving mother and a wonderful friend who would do anything for anybody if asked .

I am more than grateful for any donation anybody is willing to give me .  Thank you so much .

Let me add that GOD IS GOOD, because i might not be here right now because of this situation , but im blessed everyday .  God Bless .
