our hearts are touched by your selfless donations made to keep our lights on. Words cannot express how deeply grateful we are to each and every one of you. Just last week we had no hope of paying this bill. But now, thanks to you and other angel donors, our spirits and home are now (literally and figuratively) full of light. The peace within, knowing this bill is paid, is priceless to us. For this reason, as soon as we are able, we will be back to to pay all that we can forward. Again, thank you for your kind hearts. Peace and love, Us

About To Be Shut Off Due To Living On One Income. We Are Now Employed, Help Us Keep Our Power On!

My Story:

Our household is made up of two adults in our 30s. We both just started new jobs, which are going to finally bring us up to a self-sufficient status. For a while our household had one income, which was tough, and led us to fall behind on our electric bill. We were doing what we can to stay current, but our income was so limited that there wasn't much we could do. Now we are due to be shut-off.

If we are not able to afford this bill, we are in danger of being left in the dark. Additionally, if this happens, and our landlord finds out, we would be in danger of being kicked out of our dwelling. This is why we are turning to Modest Needs for help. This is a one time cry for help, which if fulfilled would bring our finances current. I already received my first paycheck from my new job, and my partner is about to do so as well. This will be a final relief to a difficult time in our lives.

Payment of this bill will allow our electricity to stay on, give us peace of mind, and finally give us room to breath and get caught up. It would be a true blessing and truly appreciated. Thank you!
