User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI cannot thank you enough for helping me get back to work in my field. Now with an active contractors license I will once again be able to work and be a productive element in the workforce. I'll be able to sustain myself and provide for my children without relying on any public subsidies. I am very appreciative of your kindness and solidarity in these difficult times and look forward to doing the same for others in the future when I have the chance. To all those who have gone out of their way to consider me, a wholehearted thanks!!!

Help Me Obtain A Professional License So I Can Get Back To Work

My Story:

After losing my contractor license and being let go from a job in the hospitality industry, I have really struggled to get back on my feet. I currently live with a friend and her daughter, who have been kind enough to offer me a place to stay until I get back on track. Due to the unemployment, I have exhausted all of my resources. I am ready to go back to work, but cannot afford the fee for my license renewal. Without a job I cannot get the funding for it, and without this license I cannot get a job.

I am turning to Modest Needs in order to help me get back to work by renewing my Certified General Contractor's License. I am desperate to go to work. Although my friend is really helping me out, in order for me to keep a roof over my head, I am really ready to be self-sufficient again. Without this license I am likely to remain unemployed and fight for scarce and unstable minimum wage jobs. This is the only opportunity I have had in a while, and I don't want to miss it.

It would mean so much to me and the ones I love, if total stranger show the kindness to help me out in these extraordinary circumstances. This event will by itself define my future and lift me from the situation of helplessness and frustration. Thank you!
