help please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I need help! I need to make about $600.00 in TWO weeks! I don't know what to do! My dh and i both have good credit...have never paid anything late but or debt to income is too high to get another loan. We do NOT live outside our means but, dh is disabled and his medical expences have been killing us...that along with dd who is 4 and has been VERY sick and no one can figure out what is wrong with her...anyway I need to find a way to get $600.00 so that i can take dd to a specialist in Califorina. I have no family or friends that can help and have already had a garage sell and trying to sell stuff on e-bay...is there something i am forgetting to try? How would you make that much in two weeks (NO PAYDAY LOANS!!!!!)

  • Put ads out on craigslist for caring for kids for date nights in your area or house cleaning.

     op here- I love my husband and daughter more than ANYTHING in this world and it is not HIS fault that a stupid drunk driver hit him!!!! He used to make 90K a year doing construction work which he can't do anymore because he is paralyzed! How dare you suggest i leave him??? He is a wonderful man and we work as hard as we possibly can to provide for our family. we have been dealing with the lawsuit from his accident for a year and a half and as soon as it is over we can pay off ALL of the debt that we are in DUE to the accident! How rude can you be?? I am asking for advice on how to help my 4 year old daughter who is VERY VERY sick! I can not believe you would say that!

  • if you have used electonis ie old cell phones /old computers/ dvd things like that there are sites that will pay you to recycle them try that.....just do a web search for electronic recycle and find the one that pays the most and quickist......and to that person who told her to leave her husband.....i hope you have a crisis in life and no one to turn to for help....that was VERY rude....

  • This may be a stupid answer but i thought i would say maybe try pan handling. alot of people make money that way just by asking for help.

  • If you both have good credit try applying for a small loan at a credit union. Most likely you will have to take at least $1500 and have something for collateral, but I would think getting your daughter to this specialist would be worth it, right?

    Other than that all I can suggest is sell anything you have that someone else may want through garage sales or whatever even though you have already done one... If you have old furniture or baby stuff that you don't need or use anymore if you have a second hand furniture store they usually pay pretty well when buying furniture to sell in their store.

    There are websites that allow you to make a "wish" and people help out quite often, maybe make a wish on there and someone will be able to help you. I think the one I have read about on here most often is http://www.wishuponahero.com

    Good Luck and I hope you can make the money.

  • Contact your church, or local churches and explain your situation. Also, search for support groups for what you suspect your dd might have. Something else, that doesn't have to do with quick money, but look into medicaid for your dh. I have a special needs child and they have medicaid that will supplement your private insurance (Katie Beckett-TEFRA medicaid). Good luck!
