    Hmm walk a mile in your shoes? I live on a very meager income. I can't work full time, I have a hypothalmus lesion and pituitary tumor. I walk with a cane. I have had two strokes and nearly blind. None of these ailments are an excuse for an entitlement. I have been so broke I had to humble myself and took my son into soup kitchens, or try to stay in a homeless shelter and told he was too old 12 yrs we lived in our car until money was saved up. But never have I asked for money. Well I do contribute and give back to the community agency that helped me with food and shelter which were necessary to live. Not to get money from a celebrity as generous and kind as he may be, this is not the forum.

    I dont know what kind of person comes onto a charity site just to write condescending and insulting comments to those in need. Anyways how do you ask for help? I have been trying to find out. If this is how then please I would be so grateful for any help at all. I lost my job due to them not offering maternity leave. Now after being out of work 5 months and selling everything I can I have no where else to turn. I need help for my daughter and I. We share a tiny room that I am renting and after 2 months of non payment we are going to be left on the street. Please help us. Anything at all would help enormously. Thank you

    My name is Julia. I am a secondary school teacher from Saint-Petersburg, Russia.Recently I was asked for help by my 20 years old cousin.She asked to pay for her treatment. Of course I couldn’t refuse her,I took loans with a very high interest in banks,she and her bf just grabbed everyth. and disappeared.Now I am in absolute despair, I can only pay a small part of the debts , the salary of the teacher is not enough for such a huge amount .I know that it is silly to hope that someone would like to help unknown girl, but I still believe in a miracle!My debts are 62 000 $, I know it is a lot, but even 100 $ will be the first step for surviving.My email is juliaburim@gmail.com

    yes i ask for help on here and yes i have a computer having a computer so my kids can do their school work which they have to do is a lot different than having a house worth living in and the story i told is not a sob story it is my life i live it every day so while you are probably in your big comfy house with nothing better to do than read these stories you really shouldnt judge people unless you have been in their position his foundation says that they help people who need it if i didnt need help i wouldnt be on here embarrassing my self asking for it since theres probably one in a million chances that i will get it.thank you.

    There are so many people in very difficult situations who have run out of options and don't know where to turn. Shaming these poor souls is in my opinion very cruel. Please consider reading "The Four Agreements" by Don Miguel Ruiz. Hurtful comments only add to the stress and despair. Mr. Bon Jovi may certainly choose to ignore all "begging" comments posted here, and that is his right. But please, think before you belittle people who may be in serious need. Unless you have walked a mile in their shoes, you have no idea how difficult it may be for some of them to even ask. Thank you for reading this.

    This may strike some readers here as odd but I do have a comment. Not a request, sob story or even a tear jerking situation. Being greedy not needy? Can't pay rent, or drive a new car, how are you able to access this web site? Do you have a smart phone or maybe a computer and you just happen to have free wi fi? Those with financial resources never put that information on the net and to publish your phone/contact information saying you NEED this or NEED that is shameful. Read instructions folks, This is clearly a comment blog not a begging blog. Jon is not going to show up at your home, be it a cardboard box or a condo and say here, take my money you need it. I have commented enough.
