Nottinghamshire, United Kingdom
I'm divorced with four grown up children, and I consider that I'm lucky in that I seem to have a knack for managing to live on very little money. I had to give up work due to ill health after a lifetime of doing poorly paid jobs interspersed with full time voluntary work, but I was able to downsize and support myself until I was able to claim my state pension.
I don't have much by UK standards, but I fully appreciate that I have a lot more than many other people on this planet of ours do. This is a way for me to help people who are working hard to make a better life for themselves and their families in very difficult circumstances. I feel a personal involvement because I can choose who my money goes to, and they can maintain their self respect because it's a loan, and not a handout. I only wish I had discovered lendwithcare.org sooner.
