This person has left the following thank you note:

I wanted to express my warmest gratitude for the donations that you made in efforts to pay my rent. I really could have not done it without your generous, caring and supportive spirits. It does take a special person to be willing to give up something that they wanted to give to another human being in need. I know that times are not easy for most people, so it means so much. Thank you so much for your support in this time and need and I will definitely be paying it forward! Sincerely, Gina

Single Female, About to Be Deployed, Needs Much Needed Help With Rent

My Story:

I am a 31-year-old single female. I am in the Army National Guard and we are deploying at the end of September. I had my annual training for a month in July, which provided me with enough income to take care of my bills. Because I am going to be deployed in only a few weeks, I have not been able to find a job to allow me to pay my bills for this month. I have lived on my own since I was 20, and have always made ends meet. This is the first time I have had to ask for help, and the stress has been tremendous.

I am seeking help from Modest Needs to help me afford my rent. I have rented and never had problems for the past 10 years, but with my current loss of income there is no way I can afford this payment on my own. I am very afraid of not being able to pay for this and losing my home, just mere days before being deployed. I am trying to have faith that everything is going to work out, and hope that Modest Needs is able to help me. I have sold my vehicle, and everything of value in order to pay for my other necessities. I volunteer at an animal shelter and am active in my community. I understand the spirit of giving and have always done what I can to help others.

I think that the experience of having strangers from around the world reach out to help me, will strengthen my connection to people and spark and even bigger urge for me to help others. This help will change my financial circumstances by giving me some room to breathe and lifting a huge weight off my shoulders. Thank you for considering my request!
