User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI would like to start out by saying that I really appreciate the help given to me by you. I know there are so many people who struggle daily making ends meet, and it means so much to me that there are people willing to help someone in need. There are too many things everyday that can cause a person to slowly lose hope or faith in mankind, but acts of kindness like this can really reassure a person. So, thank you very much, and I hope that I am able to pay it forward very soon. This is a real blessing.

Need Rent Help to Recover from Temp Income Loss

My Story:

I am single and have one dog. I have a double BA degree in Psychology and French with International Studies. I love spending time outdoors, doing things such as hiking or horseback riding. I also love reading and traveling. I work both a full-time job with a local flag company and a part-time job at a pizzeria.

I was laid off from a different full-time job last year, and only had my job at the pizza shop for the most part. Although I worked with several staffing agencies, and tried my best to find steady work, I did not find anything until this past April. I am now back to earning enough to support myself, but I have been playing catch up for months. I have to skip one bill to catch up with another, and eventually things snowballed to the point where I had to pay a large sum of money to keep my car out of repossession, and now have no way of affording my rent payment this month.

I am asking for Modest Needs' help with my rent. This will mean the difference between finally being back on track with all of my expenses again, and facing eviction from my home.

If I am able to receive this help, I will be able to get back on my feet and have a fresh start for the new year. I am seeking a higher paying full-time job so that I can build a savings and not let myself get into this position again. Your help would make a big, and lasting impact on my life, and I look forward to being able to help someone else in need in the same way one day.
