REQUEST: Car Insurance Assistance
(RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA)
In order to get a Driver's License in North Carolina, you need insurance. In order to get insurance, you need a license (with some companies), or insurance history.
The only offer I've gotten while shopping around is about $1150 for six months, up front. I don't know when I'll be able to save that much, but if you can help me get insurance that would be a huge relief!
It's demoralizing to know that I'm nearly 30 and finally have a "professional" job but, due to my old job forcing me to work as an independent contractor (still paying the taxes), student loans, medical bills and "young and dumb" debt, I still can't do this simple thing that most 18 year olds have the opportunity to do ... get from A to B in my own car and stop asking my friends for rides.
I'm tired, y'all. My body isn't dealing with all of the walking to/from bus stops like it used to. I don't leave the house on weekends unless I've promised a friend, and I don't often make those promises because I HATE having to be picked up. Having to rely solely on our unreliable public transportation and sometimes spotty (but always expensive) Uber service has cost me dearly already.
UPDATE: As of 8/24/16 $1,375 was raised by 24 people in 7 days!
