I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, or if the forums will allow this or not. If a fundraiser is not allowed I will gladly delete this post.
I guess I'll start from the top. I moved in with my grandfather who is 80 years old. He's an old union iron worker, and fell off a roof when he was 64 years old. The doctor said he would never walk again, though he can walk now, even without a cane or walker but it tears him up. He's just hard as nails but 15 years with two knee replacements are getting to him, I do things like mow the grass, go shopping for food, clean the house, do paint, do the dishes, things like that. Recently I need to fix our deck, it's getting rotten.
I had 2,500 saved up to get a fiero project going but my grandfather had some skin cancer that he needed burned off his scalp. Insurance covered a lot, but not everything. The medical bills we'rent that bad, but bad enough to where I could no longer get a fiero, or any car for that matter.
He's getting too old to drive me to work, and both of his cars are pretty much taking a dump on him anyway. His old deville is getting rod knock, and his century is just acting crazy lately only getting 10 MPG. I think it needs an intake manifold and barely runs as it is. My employer is picking me up, but docking pay for the ride. Luckily a food store is only about a half mile away from my house so I can walk, though I can only buy what I can carry.
So I ended up making a Go fund Me, which is a fundraiser webpage for people down and out. I'm not asking a million dollars, and I'm wanting a car that we all love, a fiero. I need a four cylinder for the gas mileage.
I'm not exactly looking for handouts. I will work for my fundraiser. If you're in or around Cincinnati Ohio and are willing to pick me up I can do any odd jobs you need done like clean out ou a garage, cleaning house, paint, pressure washing decks, mow your grass for a month, walk your dog(s) anything!
