Dear Ellen
My name is Debra Rivera
I watch your show every day, some days while I cook dinner, other days while I exercise, love your show.
I’m writing this because my daughter and husband need help.
I would like to help but I have nothing left after my Bills are paid.
They are unaware that I’m writing this letter.
They were married 2 years ago, and it has been a hard road for them.
My daughter’s name is Chanteria Puryear and my Son-in Law’s name is Nicholas Puryear
My Son-IN- LAW lost his job 1 year ago, and has not been able to find a job.
My daughter works as an Esthetician at Savi Day Spa in Tacoma, Washington. Work has been slow the
Last three months. She has been getting only 20 to 30 hours a week.
They had a house, but they had major sewer back up and house was destroyed. They were not able to borrow money from bank to fit it because husband was unemployed. They were told that it would cost 10 to 15 thousand dollars or more to fix. Also needed new wiring that would add more cost. The house was not worth fixing. So they had to walk away and let the bank have the house, because they had no running water, so the house was not livable. My daughter also has a student loan that she’s paying on.
They are now living in an apartment, but now unemployment stopped in December, and her husband has not been able to find a job.
On top of all this, they both have cars that are 13 years old. Her husband’s car is not reliable; and he is frightened that when he finds a job he want have a reliable car.
My daughter and husband or both two young hard working people, who needs a little help, this time in their life.
Would you please help?
My daughters address is: Chanteria Puryear 7539 178th Street Puyallup, WA. 98375
Daughter’s Phone# 253-961-8724 Work # 253-627-2000

My sister Amy Zimmerman needs a new car. She currently drives a loaner from her daughter's boyfriend. He intends to scrap this car when my sister can afford to get her own car. My sister lost her job several months ago and has been struggling along with part time work and free food from the city food bank. She is the rock of her family. Her youngest daughter has gone back to school to further education in her line of work with the special needs elderly program. The older daughter is trying to quit smoking so that she can start a family with her boyfriend. My sister is very proud of her girls. She needs this car to get back on her feet. Putting repairs in the boyfriend's car is a waste of her hard earned money. when what she needs is a new car. She likes the Subaru.

Hi Ellen, I am sending this hoping you can help me. My wife has been searching for a dear friend of hers for 27 years now. She's having problems contacting him. She has a phone number but where he is working evidently has poor cell service. Her birthday is coming up and I would love for them to talk and meet but we cannot afford a ticket to make this happen. I would be extremely thrilled to give this to her. Thank you for reading this.

My hero is Chris Perry. I was beaten with a hammer and nearly died during a home invasion. My home is destroyed. My body but I'm not talking about me right now. Chris took his time 3 months of his time to come here to michigan from florida to make sure I was safe and help protect and take care of me. I was hit in theh head morethan 25 times and its a miracle I'm alive. Chris is a miracle to me he gave soo much of his life to help make sure I was going to be ok and a woman who he had let stay in his home stole everything he had. I'm most worried about him losing his fathers unifortm. It hurts me the same way it hurts him. If someone isnt going to help chris and us as a company with the school in mind. Nothigns going to come of great dread that get broken over agan. I asked god for my life at that moment. Hammer raised arm broken.They told me how I was suppose to be this big drug d ealer. Striking me over and over demanding the location. I dind of wonder what my mashed face look like laughing at him. Then one of em sets my shoulder and says "ikm going to be a nursea" I started laughing at them. Well. I asked if they were here to kill me and they removed their mases. I was being struck as I kept using my hoodiee to stop major bleeds. I didnt' really pay attention to them waited for my chance and I would say god me me on my feet and iopened the door. Chris desearves more than me by far. I have the answer for our school system and I only need and ear. Chris was my partner on a project and I got sickthen hurt and sometimes its toomuch. My neice had her third born on dope birth. My sister could use that car. There are lost of peple whoudl could 8use one ellen. pass me over is fine as long as when you do it helps a dream. I had my face put back to gether last year. I best watch my next resolution holy christ

Hi Ellen, it's me again, this is my fourth update regarding Sharon Hopkins (my Niece) a The Teacher from UPREP High School in Detroit, Michigan. These are the first African America students to participate in debuts in the city's history. They have been brightening up the country with their debating skills. Placing, moving forward then winning each Tournament of which they have advanced. As I told you in my first, second and third letters; they advanced to the finals in California and had several Fundraisers to insure their appearance. Well, ELLEN...They did it! They WON the Final Tournament. We couldn't be more proud of them all. I am writing you on her behalf because lips would fall off before she asked anyone for help for herself. So Ellen, I am humbly asking for her. She needs a new SUV to replace the one she now drives. If she knew I was contacting you for help for her instead of asking for help for her "children" as she calls them, she would not be impressed. They always and in all ways come first. I’m sure she is not the only teacher who goes the extra mile for their students but she’s the only one I am requesting help for at this time. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Ellen reward this inspirational and inspiring young lady for her selfless work with a new SUV. Thank you in advance. Loretta Jackson.

My Grandson Jesus Montijo, needs a car. He is going to college and working, but he is having a hard time with his car and cannot afford to buy a another one for now. With the cost of tuition and books he can hardly survive with his salary? Anyway, i really, really ask for you to consider him for this car. He is such a good boy. Always asking me, "Are you ok Nanix, ( that's what he calls me ) do you need anything" I raised that boy and love him to death, but I can't afford to buy him that needed car myself. Please take him into consideration Ellen I would appreciate it soooooo much!! Thank you!

A GOOD FRIEND ASKED ME TO SEND MY STORY ABOUT MY SITUATION OF DESPERATE NEED OF A VEHICLE. PLEASE EXCUSE MY TYPING, I ONLY HAVE ONE GOOD ARM AND TYPING IS HARD FOR ME.... FIRST OF ALL, MY DAUGHTER IN LAW WAS KILLED 2 YEARS AGO IN A FATAL CAR ACCIDENT, I HAVE BECOME CAREGIVER FOR MY 2 GRANDSONS, THE YOUNGEST ONE IS SEVERELY AUTISTIC, HE IS 8 YEARS OLD, NON VERBAL AND NOT EVEN POTTY TRAINED.. MY SON (THEIR DADDY) WORKS CRAZY HOURS AND I HAVE THEM MOST OF THE TIME. HE HELPS ME FINANCIALLY AS MUCH AS HE POSSIBLY CAN, BUY WE ARE NOT RICH FOLKS BY ALL MEANS! BACK IN July, IT WAS RAINING AND I LOST CONTROL OF MY VEHICLE, SPUN OUT, AND WAS SLAMMED INTO A RETAINING WALL, MY LEFT ARM WAS THROWN THRU THE DRIVERS SIDE WINDOW, MY ARM WAS SEVERED AT FOREARM AND ELBOW ALL THE WAY THRU EXCEPT FOR 1 INCH HANGING ON, I WAS CARE FLIGHTED AND THEY TOLD MY FAMILY THEY WOULD MORE THAN LIKELY HAVE TO AMPUTATE, BUT, THEY CALLED IN A SPECIALIST AND SHE WAS ABLE TO REATTACH ,MY ARM... I HAVE 3 METAL PLATES, LOTS OF SCREWS AND INCISION SITES... I HAVE NO USE OF THIS ARM AND PROBABLY NEVER WILL DUE TO MUSCLE AND NERVE DAMAGE. DUE TO THIS I HAVE MOVED IN WITH MY ELDERLY MOM AND SHE TAKES CARE OF ME AND HELPS ME WITH MY AUTISTIC GRANDSON, GOD BLESS HER! BUT, AND IT IS A BIG BUT...... I HAVE NO VEHICLE, AND NEITHER DOES MY MOM, HER SS INCOME IS ONLY 800 A MONTH, WE COULD NOT AFFORD A VEHICLE AT ALL! PLUS, I AM CURRENTLY WAITING ON SSD BENEFITS, BUT HAVE HEARD NIGHTMARES ON HOW LONG THAT TAKES.... I HAVE TO DEPEND ON OTHERS AND THERE SCHEDULES JUST FOR MY MOM TO GET US TO HER APPOINTMENTS, MY APPOINTMENTS AND AT THIS TIME ALL THERAPIES HAVE STOPPED FOR BLAKE ( MY AUTISTIC GRANDSON) BECAUSE WE HAVE NO WAY OF GETTING HIM THERE. I KNOW THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE OUT THERE WITH STORIES SIMILAR TO MINE, AND i usually never ask for help, not my nature. BUT, WE ARE DESPERATE FOR A VEHICLE AND I PRAY EVERYDAY THAT GOD WILL PROVIDE US WITH ONE. WE DON'T NEED ANYTHING FANCY, JUST TO GET FROM POINT A TO POINT B.... PLEASE I AM BEGGING FOR YOU TO CONSIDER US WITH YOUR DECISION OF GIVING SOMEONE IN NEED A MEANS OF TRANSPORTATION! I THINK YOU ARE AMAZING AND INSPIRING TO DO THIS FOR SOMEONE! I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO DESPERATELY NEED THIS TYPE OF HELP, BUT HERE WE ARE! IT IS VERY HUMBLING.... GOD BLESS YOU, AND I PRAY YOU WILL CONSIDER US. I forgot to mention, I live in Hurst Texas.
