Unhappy urgent help needed

I have a 25 gallon Eclipse made by Marineland.
The pump stopped working so I have had to order a new one, but the part won't be in until next Thursday.
What do I do with my tank in the meantime? How can I filter/move/oxygenate the water? I don't have lots of money. The new part is almost $100.
I love my fish and I'm really worried about them. If you have any advice I would love to hear it.
My dad said to get a straw and blow bubbles in the aquarium lol

I was looking at this one Top Fin® Battery Operated Aquarium Air Pump | Air Pumps & Air Stones | PetSmart

It's battery operated and they said it is also good if your power goes out.

I recommend running a sponge filter in your tank or in at least one of your tanks (if you have more than one). It's a simple and very cheap filter that runs on an air pump. You can run it off a normal air pump, and during power outages it can be run on a battery-powered air pump. They are an internal filter so you have to decorate in such a way as to hide them, but the are 100% worth it as a spare filter for situations like these. (I have 7 tanks, and 3 of them run sponge filters in addition to a normal filter)
