This person has left the following thank you note:
There is nothing that I can say that will adequately express my gratitude; but I will try. First, I want to say thank you. Because of your kindness, my children will be able to focus in class and do better overall. Secondly, your donation helped restore a portion of my self esteem that was lost because I could not provide a necessity for my children. Last, but not least, my faith in the good intentions of others has been indubitably impacted. God bless you all.
Children Need Eyeglasses For School
Dear Modest Needs Donor:
After being unemployed for quite some time, I decided to try to start a small business. I have put everything that I have into trying to get the business off of the ground. I am still in the primary stages with virtually no income and no investors.
Recently, I took both of my children for eye exams. My son could not see objects that were in plain sight; and sometimes would not pay attention in class. My daughter would not complete classwork because she was too embarrassed to admit that she could not see.
It pains me that I cannot afford to help my children see better. My children deserve to have every opportunity available to be successful at school; even if I cannot provide it. It is with great humility that I ask for assistance.
