User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI can't thank you enough for helping me and my girls! I have been struggling for quite a while now and we will finally get some much needed help! Sometimes life can be very hard and you get saddened and disappointed and depressed about your circumstances, but actions like yours can restore a person's faith in humanity. I look forward to telling my girls all about this wonderful process and how you all helped us. I try my best to instill respect and appreciation for other people and all walks of life, and this will go a long way to bring the point home with them. I thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for helping us! I feel like a giant weight has been lifted off my back. Thank you thank you so much!

We Had an Unexpected Expense Followed By Missing Work Due To Injury. We Need Rental Help.

My Story:

I'm a single dad. I have two girls, but they live with their mother and I get them on the weekends. I love my kids. I was a ward of the state growing up. I lived in a big building with 200 other kids until I turned 18. Unfortunately, I don't have any family that can help me. I work full-time as a painter.

I live paycheck-to-paycheck. I just have a small apartment and enough room for me and my girls to sleep over every other weekend. I had an old washer and dryer that someone gave me and not long ago they both broke down. I need a washer and dryer, especially to wash my girls' clothes on the weekend. I would have been okay with rent after buying replacements but unfortunately, I got hurt at work and missed some time. I need Modest Needs to help pay my rent this month.

Having my rent paid this month would mean the world to me. It would get me enough time to get back on track. I haven't let my daughters know about my situation yet, and I'm really hoping I don't have to. But if you help me I will tell them all about it. It would really set a good example for them to see that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others and use this as our inspiration to help others in turn. I've done a lot of volunteering with our church in the past and would like to give back to the community in the future.
