"Ask Oprah And Ye Shall Receive"

Roseb441702 started this conversation

Found this very interesting article about Oprah and the people that ask here for money. Actually she has this kind of video contest thing where you ask her for what you need. If you win you get it!

HELLO Oprah.... My name is Kathy and I am 54 years old.... I have never asked any 1 in my life for help... So this is not so easy.... I have been in UNITED STATED for over 40 years... Coming from a well known family of my country... You know they say when it rains it pours, and how true could that be.... About 4 years ago I had to leave my job, and had a great title... I was Regional for a skincare company for years.... but had a back and neck problem.... Finally couldn't do it any more and because of my disks and scoliosis I was having 2 much pain.... Finally decided to do the surgery last year.... 10 hours surgery and 5 fusion .... After a long stay at the hospital and rehab came home.... Forgot to say I live with my MOM and sister.... 2 months later my MOM had 2 strokes back to back.... Taking her to ER and after her stay in the hospital for a month they send her to rehab.... and 1 more stroke there... We are very close family.... I can only tell u I wished it would of happened to me, God is my witness that since May of 2013 I havent had 1 good day.... Because of financial problems, and emotional problems. My sister and I had to move from WEST HILLS CA to LAKE ARROWHEAD where my other sister and brother-in low lives... and bring MOM to the closest facility here.... I am on disability.... we are 3 sisters, and each of us go to her facility every day to make sure she eats and watch over her.... Just because we love her to much and we want to keep her.... Been looking for section 6 housing, I guess I am 2 late, they closed it.... Been looking for low housing and I cant afford it... I have nothing , but GOD .... Not even a car..... and NO HOPE..... I have seen you helping people on your show.... I never thought or imagined I would ask you for help.... Is there anything you can do for me? I am staying at my sisters house but i wished I wouldn't.... My other sister is helping me with so many things cause after the surgery i am not the same.... I don't know what to ask for.... I don't give myself the right to ask what I want.... just any help.... I appreciate your time, and no matter what takes place, I thank you.... GBU AMEN

I'm a single black mother who son just finish high school and want to attend college and I can't afford it. He have got accepted to a college and I went to Orientation and I just didn't realize how much it was going to cost. Not realizing I should have started filling out for scholarships way long ago. The last few days I felt so depress because my child wants to go to college and I can't afford it. He a very good child and well mannered, God fearing and got A's and B's in school but didn't received any Academic Scholarships. He made an 21 on the SAT but still that wasn't higher enough for scholarship. I have always tried to help outers out in life and now its my time asking for help... not for me but for my child to be able to afford college... God knows if I get help for him to be able to attend his Freshman year I will do whatever I have to do to be able to pay for the rest of the years.... I will work two or three jobs if I have to. My child wants to be the first one in family to go to college and I'm just asking for a little help to get him started, if you can't help, just say a little prayer that God makes away for him to be able to start college in August.

Hi my name is Jaime L. Mayberry. You probably received an e-mail from my husband Stan. Well i read his e-mail. and although everything he said was very true. he forgot or neglected to mention his severe depression. i'm mentioning this because it sometimes scares me badly. my poor guy has been so good to people all of his life. his singing name is "MacGyver" and that's what most of his fans and friends call him. we were married three months ago today. I feel so bad for him. he has worked so hard all of his life and always helps anybody and everybody in need of help..just makes me very mad that the same people that he has helped are the first ones to turn him and or us down in our time of need. I myself say the heck with them.... but not him.. he still continues to help when he can.. we have caught one break.. our (his) oldest son has offered to sell us his house, that will save a little on rent,but we are still so deep in debt that all we can do is fall deeper. our monthly bills are much higher than our total income. and like he said ..we just see no way out. please can you help and or tell us of someone or somewhere that may ? we have such a good life with each other. but he is very stubborn. he does too much and gets winded so easily. and then like i said his depression scares me to death.. he's not in the best of health. I don't know what else to say. just please help us...please !
Thank you.... Jaime Mayberry
