This person has left the following thank you note:

Dear Angels of Modest Needs: I am writing today to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your help that you have given to me with this grant. I had a roller coaster of events happened and it seemed I had nowhere to turn and no one to help me until someone told me about the good people at the modest needs foundation. This help that you have provided me with today will allow me to keep my apartment and pay up my rent and late fees. I am so happy there is an organization that cares about people regardless of their credit history, or status quo. You have really made a difference in my life and I want to help make a difference in someone else's. I have no choice because I am so thankful to modest needs but to pay this forward and give back to those who have litteraly saved my life. Modest needs you can definetly expect donations from me, to make a difference in someone's life like you did mine, is an incredible gift to be able to pay forward. Thanks again.

Please Help Me Pay My Rent

My Story:

First and foremost, thank you for giving me that opportunity to write to you. My truck lost all of its oil because of a bad oil change done four days earlier, which threw my timing chain out. The following day, I was rushed to the hospital in severe pain to find out that I had a huge ovarian cyst that required surgery.

While sick, my mechanic messed up my engine when trying to fix the timing chain, which just added insult to injury. It took over a month and a half for the repairs and now my truck runs terribly and requires more work. This 'repair job,' took my entire savings.

A few weeks later, I had to have emergency surgery to remove a golf ball size cyst from my right ovary, causing me to miss two weeks of work and I had no PTO/sick pay to cover me. My mother is all I have, but she is 75 years old, lives out of town, and cannot afford to help. I am super stressed and in a state of depression due to this trick down effect of bad luck.

Helping me cover a month of rent would enable me to catch on everything and possibly get a little control back. Please help. I just can't lose my apartment due to two bad mechanics and repair jobs. Thank you for your time and I hope you consider assisting me.
