My husband left our family a week before Christmas while I have been unemployed since until now, May 12. I was unable to get any assistance, including unemployment. I have 2 daughters and a one year old grandson. My daughter was getting food stamps to help but
it wasn't enough. I still have utility bills and a car payment of 375.00/month. If I get any further behind they will take my only transportation. We have had our home auctioned off already. Since I have no money my family has had to split up and live in different places. I would love to be able to find a home that all of us could be together again, but that is impossible since I do not have the money for rent. This has affected myself as well as my daughters emotionally and physically. I have been to the ER twice and have no insurance. I was admitted the last time due to the stress. Please help us if you will.

375 a month for a car payment!? Sounds like the car needs to go!

You can buy a beater car to get around in until you are out of debt.

I'm sorry you are having troubles, but at some point we all need to step up to the plate and help ourselves.

Have you looked in to Financial Peace University???

You gotta love publicity stunts? Without them we would have to judge people based on their talents.

The credit should soley go to Will I. Am...not the Black Eyed Peas. He did this on his own...and Oprah really only hosted the show. Let's give thanks to the proper person please! The new headline should read. Metro Family Fights Off Forclosure thanks to Will I. Am!

My sentiments exactly. 8 birthday parties out a year. All the Christmas parties. How much of the $10k in credit debt was used for that?
I wish I could could come up with a good sob story to get my house paid for.

Me too. Unfortunately, my debt was made by my decisions in bad situations. So, guess I'm stuck paying it all off myself. That's what you get trying to help someone else financially. I can't even afford to have someone mow the yard let alone have a party and buy presents. Anywy, good for this family. God has made a way for them to be taken care of. Thanks to $$$ from Will I AM, however you spell it.

That's fantastic for this family.
I have 4 kids and we live in a three bedroom house
Nothing quite as luxurious..
But its what we can afford.
We don't have cable or cell phones. We can't afford alot. But the mortgage gets paid.
We are very crowded, and I doubt that things will change for the better in America. Stories like this will continue. Our wonderful government keeps taking our money. Lying to people about there agenda. Meanwhile plucking away at our constitution.
Obama your out!!!

Heard that Black Eyed peas and Oprah have been able to help some people with their problem. She has two children in school and is in desperate need of help who can she contact. Her name is Ann Marie Carpenter @ [email protected] If their is anyway you can help or who can we contact to save her home.

Perhaps if people would plan for the worst and not have more kids then they can support and buy expensive houses they can't afford this would not have been needed. Bailing out someone with that lifestyle seems almost obscene with all the people out there that are unable to work because mental or physical problems.
