This person has left the following thank you note:
To All Who Have Contributed and To All Who Have Worked on This Request (& I KNOW THAT INCLUDES A LOT OF PEOPLE): The biggest shock I have had lately was finding out tonight that my Grant Request has been Funded. So how do I begin to THANK YOU. The english language doesn't allow as many words as I would like to use. However, it does give me the privilege of saying 'THANK YOU' A very small word with such a huge meaning. I had no idea there was so much love in the world. I didn't know people still cared about the needs of others. Modest Needs has shown me otherwise. This grant has lifted a burden off our shoulders I thought would never be lifted. May God Bless each and every person who had a hand in this Grant. Some day I will again be on my feet and will be able to contribute and help others. That is some time in the future, but I will get there. Tonight I know again I am Blessed. My family Thanks you from the bottom of our hearts. And a special Thank You to 'Fawn' for encouraging me to be patient; something I had run out of when our home burned up and took all of out belongings. I have had some tough time facing the fears of the unknown from the major Loss. I am thanking God and thanking you for this blessing. Again, May God Bless Each of You, Always. Our Love, Jacqueline & Khalil Lee
Everything Lost To The Fire
On the 30th of December, 2007 While Driving home from my Mother's home in South Carolina, my home burned down.
We arrived home to find our home gone and our family disheveled and in tears in the midst of the chaos. It was but by the grace of GOD that my husband, my sons and myself were not in the house at the time, otherwise, we might not be here today.
I am so grateful to GOD that he spared our lives, but, my family has been displaced and we are trying desperately to find a way to try to put our lives back together.
We have had to find a new place to live and replace all that we own. As you can imagine, the expenses we are incurring are of great proportion.
We are so far out of sorts that life at this point seems excessively bleak, and between trying to repair our broken lives and move forward at the same time, we are having serious troubles.
I have the documentation to support all of the information that I am giving you, and we are in desperate need at this juncture.
I am asking for rental assistance for one month in our temporary apartment. I appreciate your having taken the time to consider us, and I only pray that your organization will be able to offer us some assistance. Thank you for your time, effort and consideration. Sincerely and respectfully
