Car Repair Could Cost Me My Childcare And My Job

My Story:

I am a single mother of a bright and energetic 8-year old daughter. I work a full-time job as a sales and service advisor at a call center. My daughter is very creative and loves to color and read. She loves seeing her friends at daycare, she's known most of them since she was 2yrs old. We both love going to the park near our house. She loves to skate and likes challenging me to run and keep up with her.

I usually earn enough pay to cover our basic expenses each month. I used to be able to pick up some overtime at certain times of the year to help, but still lived paycheck to paycheck. Due to my work schedule, I rely on daycare to take my daughter to school and pick her up from school. The cost of daycare is even more over the summer. I recently had to pay to get my car towed and repaired which placed me in a financial bind. I need Modest needs to help pay for daycare expenses. I am unable to make this payment after paying for the car repair.

This funding will help greatly to get me current with bills. It will relieve a lot of stress and worry and restore some stability in knowing that I don't have to worry about my daughter not having daycare. If she were asked to leave because of non-payment I truly do not know what I would do as far as making sure my daughter gets to school each morning or what I would do in regard to my job. Your help would be so appreciated and allow me to teach my daughter that sometimes you have to humble yourself and ask for help and when you do ask for help there are wonderful people that care and are willing to help you. Also, if you can help others you should do so because even a little bit of help can make a great impact.
