I hate to beg or solicit but my daughter and I really have no place to live much longer and are in need of a car or repairs.  Please vote for us at freecharitycars.org provided by dear Schimdty or if you are really in need, apply too.  We are about at the end of the rope, friends, and would sure appreciate it.  Thank you!

I alway's have a hard time!!! God is allowing these thing's to make us stronger. I used to have strong faith to believe for ANYTHING. Trial's of life and cruelty and meanness of family-the church-those who are supposed to be our brothers and sisters in Jesus, when you get low, when you sin and fall-those church folks dont even want to know you. God does do miracle's. I have had nothing and he picked me up and was the good samaritan because no one else would. The one thing we can do is stand for each other. Flex our faith wings and ask God what can I do? He love's us and will find an answer. Those of us on here-I don't think too many live high on the hog-we will have an easier time when it all falls apart-because we are survivors. We will have a heart for each other. In his word-it tell's us God has a heart for the poor. He will make an end to those oppressing the poor one day. In the mean time WE can do such much by really praying from the heart and when we have the opportunty to give even a bowl of soup in Jesus name we need to take the opportunity. God will remember that couple dollars or soup and bread.

Hey Folk's-I just got the new's that my hot water heater has died. None of us have the money to replace it. I know you all have strong faith. Please agree with me that a miracle is coming quick. There are many of us and that enclude's a 14 and 2 year old. I know Jesus has a miracle. Will you stand with me? One miracle is that while I was sleeping last night-Jesus touched me. I dont feel as stressed or sick as I had before. I am expecting to relearn faith in God to fix it and provide a way or to have peace while he is fixing it. We need down to earth believers who know how to pray. Lord grant that I can help someones faith.

Hi 'justinekase's',

I totally agree.

While I will continue to give something to the synagogues & church, alot of the charities including some churches,etc will not be getting my funds.

I have always been a giver. I used to give to charities, ministries,etc to help people (so I thought thats where the monies were going). When my family hit hard times & my father was terminally ill (before he passed); I asked the places that we had so freely given too for a little help. I did not receive a penny.

I now just prefer to give directly to the individual. I do believe in giving tithing or offering. Besides, I did not see anywhere in the word of G-d to give to charities. It does tell us to give to the house of the L-rd. It does tells us to help the poor. So, we can give it directly to them.

CEO's of some of the charities get a salary of a half million dollars. If they can pay workers that then they certainly do not need my little pennies!

Have a great night.

Train cars wife again. I have tried every thing from thr NACA, HEMP, Safeharbor and numerous others from government to non government and yes schmidty we appreciate greatly your info but nothing has turned up and you are right when people are desparate and in despare they will try about anything. Thats when I started messing with the computer and ran across that website beg to a millionaire and thought what the hell id give it a try. Since then I got educated. IWe get emails all the time now saying if you buy this or that you can make anywhere from 2000 to 25000 in a day and you know that there scams.Traincar was teaching me computer off and on when he could so this has been crash course and Iam learning that you cant always beleive the websites that advertise ither. There are so many scams its frightening. I even sent an email to the white house which refered me to Hud which was a joke because they put you on a waiting list and it takes 1 to 2 years for them to help and again you have to qualify and they said since traincar is a senior and disabled he qualifies for senior living such as the nursing home and insead of medicare he would get medicaid. Im sorry but I do not agree with this. He is a person, a human being and not a number to be discarded at a whim or when the going gets rough. I will keep him and his dogs with me for as long as he is living. I have been looking for a generator and an inverter to run his equipment with. If we dont find a place we can camp by the river until. weather changes. We live in Oregon and the winters can be nasty.

Hello there straight shooter.  Yes there are some really good small churches around that do help people with food banks and clothes but few and far between.

 in response to Jay29...   HI Jay29, I came across a siite that is actually just for Vets, young or old, I am not  vet but was looking for work, you can google it. I also agree with you on the discrimination.... I have to wonder if the jobs posted are justthere for show. I have the experience and also college mine is BS, but you know what? they still do not hire even in my field. a person is either "over qualified" or not enough and no one wants to train. I have revised my resume so it does not scare anyone but still no success. I have decided I will have to create a business and work for myself. No I do not have any money, I am staying with a friend but will lose everything in storage on Wednesday. If you would consider reocating, I do not know what your AFXC or MOS was but there is another sit too that I googled, The US Government's official site for jobs and hiring information. Includes information on how to obtain service-related preference, for listed positions. I do not know if I am allowed to put the web address or not but you can find it, I hope thathelps a little.

oay guys... it is me, I am nonly a few dys old on this site. I am so happy I am meeting each of you and being able to discuss things without pretense. I do not know the hisory of this site yet but who evr thought this up , THANK YOU! Really. I am going to be a little pain though.... not all churches hoard, or waste the money they are given. Granted I ahev, ( when things were not so bad) traveled around the world becasuse of the United States military. and I saw differnt types of church organisations and it is unfortunately true that many, not all but many do use the "church" to get rich they have their own agenda and we or people like us are not part of that. But.... this year I found a church small and very humble that was very sincere. I had no job, still do not but was not homeless yet and I never asked anyone for help, I think they just felt my need and it was not much but they were sincere and genuine, that counts. Regarding the charities, well... that is a different story. I also know first hand how monies are handled because I too did an audit, I was shocked, but not surprised. In that same note though I do not want to be guilty of generalising and stereotyping. It is very easy to do, you know. The fraud waste and abuse are there, but is is rather apparent the each of here are not like that or we would not be here chatting with each other about these issues, I laugh because I thought I was the only one out here that was this naive, or trusting. Glad I am not. There are a few good people out there but Schmidty is so very rigt it all comes down to " what will it profit them". I am happy I am not like that, I am a real person, no hidden agenda or alterior motives, just plain and simple, straight shooter as a friend of mine says.

It is also unfair on how they treat individuals with an Associates degree (like myself). These employer in my surrounding area wants too much damn experience along with a degree and do not want to take time and train an individual (like they used to). They need to realize that college counts for at least two years of experience. Where does experience starts? No one can answer that!

The way these jobs are hiring people in my area is straight-up discrimination. They assume because when I put "VETERAN" on my application that I am old and disabled. I am 29 and I am in great shape (better than them). This is wrong to all veterans young or old!

 in response to whoknew...   

I agree with you. I have to put a but in there though, and that is because if they do any good it's for a reason not to actually help. I'd like to see more of them start doing like that old TV show where the millionare went around giving their money away.
