User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeOn behalf of myself and family, I want to send my deepest gratitude and appreciation for your donation. I understand that most citizens are facing difficulty in this current economy, and I just want to express my greatest appreciation. I appreciate that you took time out of your lives and invested in another family. That is why I will never forget this kind act. I believe in philanthropy, paying, it forward, and sowing seed into good ground. I modeled my life this way and have taught my children about acts of kindness, sharing, and giving. Therefore, I too, have given to organizations, people, and institutions. Therefore, when my situation turns around, I will continue to live in this fashion and pass this down to future generations. It is people who take the time to care that will always have enough of what really matters in life. God Bless you! Sincerely, A family that you helped that was in need!

Unexpected House Repair and Lapse of Medical Insurance: Need Help With High Utility Bill

My Story:

I live at home with my three children. I was married, but am currently going through a divorce. The father of my kids is not paying any support, while I live on disability as a result of having Multiple Sclerosis. I go to school part-time in order to increase my opportunities and be able to find suitable work someday.

I am currently in need of assistance with a really high utility bill. I cannot afford to pay it, because we had a lapse in our medical insurance for my children, and then we had to replace our broken garage door for safety reasons. This took away from my already tight budget, and prevented me from making payments towards my regular monthly expenses. I am afraid that without some assistance we might lose everything.

Funding this application would put my family on the road to recovery. We will be able to get back on track, without the worry of losing our home or electric power. We really appreciate your consideration and willingness to help us out of this tough situation. Thank you!
