This person has left the following thank you note:

I just want to say thank you so much for helping me get my power bill paid, I don't what I would have done; words can't describe the feeling I have right now, thanks so much, now my family will have lights on thanks to the funders. Thank u again, I appreciate it so much.


My Story:

My rent increased from $53 to $328 and it put me behind on my power bill (this was a big hike from $53 and I had to pay my rent) and now I owe a 2 month bill plus this months bill and I have no money to pay it, I also had to pay some fees for my daughter due to her being in orchestra and that put me behind as well.

I just need help with this Georgia Power bill and I will be caught up and will be able to pay it from now on; this would mean the world to me and my family and will help me be able to help me get caught up on this bill and be able to pay it next month and be able to pay my rent, this will make a huge difference for my family and since I am disabled it will keep my lights from being turned off which I need since I have a pacemaker and need my machine to work through my lights.

I thank you for your consideration in advance and hope you can help my family. Thank you so much.
