Testimonial

This person has left the following thank you note:

Thank you so much for the help you have provided to me and my family. The assistance you have given me has lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. Knowing this bill is covered has removed a lot of the anxiety that has been making me sick. I know now I can go forward and be confident when I am looking for a better job (I want to be able to save up in the future so this doesn't happen again, and maybe someday I can help people the way you have helped me.) I want you to know that your generosity will not be forgotten, I've always believed in paying it forward and having this bill covered will help get me back on track so I can be in a place to help others. The confidence you have given me will help me be much more successful in my search for a better job. And to be honest I have been losing a lot of faith in people lately, but finding your organization has renewed that faith. I am so amazed to find so many people willing to help people. I could never thank you enough for all you do, you are amazing. Sincerely, Dominique



Animal Medical Emergencies Set Me Back, Need Help

The Details:

I am a single fur Mommy of 4. I have 3 cats and 1 dog. I had 1 cat and when my mom passed away in 2010 I took in her 3 cats and her service dog. I had lived with her during her illness prior to her passing, so they were most comfortable with me. Recently one of my cats passed away, he was closest to my mom and it has been very hard losing him.

I earn enough to pay our basic expenses, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. One of my male cats had a urinary blockage that took $1700 to save his life. About 2 months later the 2nd cat got sick, the vet cost was about $500 total to try and save his life, but unfortunately he was unable to recover. Angel was 15 years old and I had known him all his life. Next the dog got an ear infection which also came with a bill. These were very unexpected emergencies and I unfortunately didn't have any savings set aside. I had to cover these bills or they would not treat my animals, and that has put me behind on some other bills. I need Modest Needs help to pay my car insurance. I have had to choose paying my bills or keeping my animals alive and I had to choose life.

This funding would help bring me up to date on my bills, the anxiety of worrying over money is making me sick to my stomach. Your help would completely change my outlook, constantly worrying about money has left me rather depressed lately. I also feel like I could be more confident on job interviews knowing this was taken care of. Thank you for your consideration and all the help you provide.
