Moving Expenses Were Too Much! Need Help With An Electric Payment!

My Story:

Currently my family consists of myself and three small children, aged 5, 6, and 7. We recently had to move to a new home, and had to pay numerous deposits, which were not budgeted for. This took away from my savings, and income that was allocated towards our regular monthly expenses. The move put me in a hole, and now I have no way of affording our electricity and we are due to be disconnected.

I am hoping that Modest Needs will be able to assist with this expense, because I do not know how to come up with the funds, nor what I will do if I am left in the dark with three small children. Not being able to afford this expense has put me in a horrible position, and I feel guilty for not being able to help myself.

If you are able to help us, my family would be safe, and we will be ok going forward in our new home. Your support would help my financial situation immensely and ensure the wellbeing of my family. Words cannot express my gratitude.
