The Original 1-800-Charity Cars, the nation’s leading car donation distribution charity, operates an amazing, and unique website www.freecharitycars.org, where people in need of viable transportation can sign up and apply for a free charity car. Today we would like to highlight one of our many car donation applicants to give you a glimpse of the people in need of a reliable means of transportation.
Jacksonville, Florida Car Donation Applicant: Janiera
Janiera, from Jacksonville, Florida, signed up through our vehicle distribution site on august 20, 2014, where she has applied for assistance in receiving a car. Here is a summary of her situation:
I joined Free Charity Cars because the affects of not having a car as a young person trying to find her way in the world was becoming overwhelming! Free Charity Cars seemed like such an excellent community to help other people in need as well as get help myself that I had to join. Man was I right!
I’m a 23 year-old who suffers from Fibromyalgia. I had to leave college 3 years ago because it was changing my life so much after it started with a bad bout of mononucleosis. The pain and fatigue left me unable to continue. I began working from home as a freelance writer and self-published author. In the beginning the pay was pretty good, but now due to the competitiveness of the field, and the shaky economy it has been a struggle for me financially.
I’ve been looking for a job for over a year and haven’t been able to find one. I had to turn down a few interviews because I had no way of transportation to get to the interview or work the job itself. In fact, it just happened to me recently and tore me apart. I’d love to be able to return to school to train to be a pharmacy technician as a permanent career choice.
Even though working will be hard with my condition I want to work so bad to get my life started again and get me on the road back to going to school. I’d also like to help my brother and drive him to work. I’m trying to overcome problems with my stomach and having a vehicle would make it so much easier to make consistent appointments. I have a great family and they need my help financially. Not to mention I spend every weekend in the house alone unable to do anything because I have no transportation. It makes me feel so lonely and cuts me off from the world. I’ve gone through severe depression due to the isolation that almost made me commit suicide. My family brought me back from those thoughts, but I’m still very often depressed.
Getting a car would give me the opportunity to be a happy, independent adult. Earning money on a consistent level would greatly improve my life and allow me to go to school and pursue a career!
