What I want to do

be able to shop for food for my family and not have to carry a 50 lb backpack walking 3 miles home(oh,the memories of grocery shopping for the month!)

What matters to me

Having my kids be proud of me and our family again,and not embarrassed and teased because their parents are "losers" because they can't afford to buy a car.(yup,true story)

What inspires me

my kids,my inner strength to fight for a better life,and convincing myself that there is no possible way that anything else negative can be added to my plate,so that can only mean one thing- the worst is over-and I survived.

Charity Cars, Inc.
April 28, 2013

I found this charity cars website,decided to join,and posted my "story." I honestly think I decided to join in order to just tell my story of how and why I am in this situation and how alone I felt,figuring nobody was heard,cared about,or had a prayer receiving such a thing as a donated car.I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF OR HAVE SEEN SUCH A CARING ORGANIZATION AS THIS ONE-EVER.Not only do the organizers- who work 24/7 non stop to try to raise money and/or donations of cars,their only concern is to help someone in need of a vehicle(which they somehow manage to do!)the people who have joined,looking for help like myself-are the most caring, concerned,and truly genuine group of people I have ever seen in my life.They are all strangers-yet become like family,encouraging someone else with kind words-even though they themselves are in the same situation.This charity blows my mind- I have never seen anything like it!You are treated with respect and dignity here-this charity changes peoples lives.To those of you who may be considering making a donation to Free Charity Cars-please let me say this. The people who have joined this charity( like myself) in the hope of receiving that life changing phone call,(saying someone in your area has donated their car-and it's yours!)are NOT people just trying to "take advantage"and "working the system"or "lazy bums"(Sorry to use those words members!) they-and myself- have joined in order to better their lives and that of their children's.We are the victims of domestic violence,the medically needy, the military family,and the working poor.We have been forced into a situation-for whatever reason-where purchasing a vehicle,( though desperately needed)is impossible,thus becoming impossible to work,take care of our health,and even eat.It then becomes a vicious cycle of poverty,depression, anxiety,and stress for the entire family.Something that some people may take for granted( transportation) could literally change a members life forever.What an awesome and wonderful gift you could give to a member of Free Charity Cars Inc!By donating your no longer used vehicle you are giving someone the gift of a new and better life! PLEASE HELP CHARITY CARS IN MAKING THAT POSSIBLE-THEY NEED YOUR HELP! Thank You- KIMBA428
