Everyone has seen this car around the South Suburbs…my all white, old and raggedy mini van with a mismatched bright red hood that had a hanger and a bungee cord holding the hood in place with the headlights holding on for dear life by a few wires…and many people have thought to theirselves, boy this family really needs a new car, well that was us. Hello my name is Angela mom of 4 sons. Last year at this time my car was in a major accident. Teenager driving a stolen car, hits a patch of ice and slams headfirst into my car, because he didn’t have any insurance…I was on my own for car repairs and medical expenses. I’m a single Mom, with low income, recently divorced and working part time, and I must say life has been rough. The car accident almost took my life, and I’m grateful to be alive. Fast forward to this day, my car recently stopped on me. I have had 5 different mechanics check it out and they can not get it started. It was time anyway for a new car, ok it was past time for a new car. If we win this car, it will be a dream come true as we have been praying extra hard for a new car. It is quite challenging trying to get back and forth to work, to church, and take my sons to their after school activities. I still remain positive and smiling even though I’m going thru a lot. If we win this car, we can take a much needed road trip to the South. My brother also encouraged me to submit my story, if we win, we can go to the grocery store and get the necessary ingredients to make his much requested Turtle Soup. I am Super excited about this. I also know a lot of people that need cars, and I can send them in to check out your company. My sons are my biggest motivators and encouraged me to do this. Thank you for your time. Have a Great holiday.
