Single Mother Needs Rental Help After Car Accident

My Story:

I am a single mother of one daughter. She is 18 going on 36. She is very energetic, fashionable and soft spoken. We loved to watch scary movies together and play Uno. I work full-time as a Small Business specialist at Commerce Bank.

October 31,2016 I can never forget this day because it changed my life. I was off from work and running a few errands. While coming down the road at a red light some one slammed into the back of my vehicle. In that instant my life changed. The opponents Insurance Company paid for a rental car for only 2 weeks. I had to continue to pay for a rental car until I was able to come up with a down payment for another vehicle. My previous vehicle was paid in full but was totaled. Due to this accident I suffered from 3 bulging discs as well as my nerve system being damaged. I was out of a total of $800 for the rental car alone. Then I had to come up with $1000.00 for a down payment on another vehicle. In the meantime I'm still trying to maintain my regular bills. It got to a point where I didn't know what my daughter and I would eat from day to day. Now that I'm caught up on my car note I need Modest Needs help with my rent.

This funding would finally put me ahead on things. I'm looking for a second job and plan to have one by the end of the month. My daughter is currently enrolled in community college for Nursing. The plan is for her to get a part-time job while attending school. I want her to see in life there will be storms but people like Modest Needs understand and are willing to lend a helping hand. You have to be Appreciative, Grateful, and use this inspiration to help others. Maybe you can'y help them with visible things but sometimes people may need a kind word, or a hug, maybe a smile .Everyone needs someone sometime.
