Hi Elllen, My name is bonny chruscicki. I had a brain aneurysm 3 yrs ago. and a stroke; my daughter just happened to be overnight to save my life. , Today I have neuropathy on my left side and left a bit cognitively impaired. Feeling blessed with a phenomenal recovery; I see how far I came and how differently I'm learning to like the new person in me. Before the annie I was unemployed for 16 months. This is why getting a job is so very important to me to figure out what's next. After applying for 28 jobs since since last November, I finally found 2 jobs this summer. I'm working for a beach club on Lake Erie as a weekend cleaner (Mickey Ratts) starting at 5am. Its seasonal, happy to finally have a job. The craziest part of my new life is I'm a much happier person. I asked the owner save up my paychecks so then by the end of summer I'll get something that I really need. Fun part is I walked to work on my first day which is phenomenal because I always have had long driving distances to work for the last 30 years. Before my annie I was a graphic designer working for ad agencies etc. Ellen, the second job is with Sit n' Stay Pet Services, Inc. This will extend beyond summer and looks to be a nice start of a new career. . I get paid for 30 minute home visits to feed pets and dog walk. etc. Working with animals other than people could be interesting.) This is why I'd like to win a car. I first bought a new car in 2008; last year It was totaled. I have a 2004 jeep. I dont like the excessive use of gasoline. A new car will save my gas / maintenance problems to drive around town to do my pet visits. Keeping the faith. thank you.

Ellen I've been with this GREAT guy for 8 yrs. He has always been a good provider but due to an accident at work he can no longer work he has always been there for everyone but now that time are a little hard no one will help him. His car is on its last legs. He has been trying to get something better ,but because of our limited income and bad credit we are told that we must put down a large down payment that we don't have, He's on oxygen and has blood clots on his lungs and not able to go back to work, or walk very far. He is really a very proud guy and I'm not sure how he'll feel about this but I have to try and help him somehow. I truly hope you can .

Dear Ellen,
I myself would like a car because I do so much volunteering in the portland oregon community. Anywhere I can help I will. I believe I am always giving so much to other's that I truly neglect myself at times. I just recently went thru the snow storm with St Francis dining hall on 11th and pine here in Portland, Oregon. It was alot of work and patience. We were snowed in for about 4 days, but I made it to the dining hall to help keep the community going. "And" then it happedned!
My bridge fell OUT! Now my front teeth are stubs, and right now I can't afford to have them fixed. Not only do I want a car,but need new front teeth. For me It would Just help make me smile while I'm doing what I like doing helping the homeless, the elderly,the children, the young and old on drugs, and women. Last but not least the anyone whom I may come across in my journey thru this life.
Once again I too would like to dance.
Your Fan Evelyn n Paul.
PS: I turned Paul onto the Ellen D Person. Thank-you.

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
