This person has left the following thank you note:

I am so grateful for your willingness to support my educational and rehabilitation needs to pay for an important certification. The Microsoft Office User Specialist Certification will be my first professional certification demonstrating proficiency in Business Office software. This will not help me in gaining employment but help me manage my disability of ADD/ADHD. Thank you for being willing to get me a chance to move forward in my life.

Veteran Needs Certification in MS Office To Be Technically Competent For The Workforce

My Story:

I am a single army veteran, who suffers from several medical conditions. I currently live in a shelter and am working hard towards changing my life. I have not been able to obtain a permanent position for almost three years and as a result lost my home. I have no family members to assist me in this time of need and am working hard at improving my opportunities.

I am turning to Modest Needs to help me increase my job prospects. I am striving to keep up with technology and would like assistance with obtaining my MS Office Certification. This would significantly improve my chances in finding a position in this fast changing world. I am currently enrolled in classes, but do not have the money necessary to pay for the certification exam.

This funding will solve so many problems for me. It will significantly improve my chances of finding employment and provide me with a salary that will likely lead to self-sufficiency. You would be helping improve my life and look towards a bright future. Thank you!
