User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI wish I could see you face- to - face and thank you for your generosity to me and others who cannot help ouselves when faced with an emergency expense. Your hearts are as big as the vast sky and that's how much my heart says 'Thank you'. Due to your wonderful generosity, the heavy load I was bearing has been lifted. I could NOT get my window replaced on my own. I assure you that I will 'pay it forward' by doing whatever I can to help others when possible. So this wonderful gift will keep giving and giving . Sometimes we, people who are alone and practically destitute, see no way out. Then someone like all of you show us there is still a lot of good, giving people in this world. Thank you once again with all my heart.

Help Me Replace My Car Window and Keep My Vehicle Safe!

My Story:

I am a divorced, 65 year old lady who lives on a very modest income. I live alone, and am responsible for all expenses within my household. Recently, I had to buy a new pair of eyeglasses and also a new air conditioner, as the old one in my home was not working. Now another unexpected expense has hit me, and my resources are exhausted.

When I was mowing my yard, a rock flew from the mower and shattered my car window. It is something that I must replace for my safety and that of my vehicle. I am in need of assistance with this expense, because there is no way I can afford it on my own. My car is my only way to get to the doctor and grocery store, and without it I would not be able to remain independent. Not having a means of transportation would be absolutely devastating to me.

Your help means the world to people like me. It makes me want to help others, and appreciate everything even more. I thank you with all of my heart for your consideration.
