This person has left the following thank you note:

Hello to all of you and God Bless. I am just getting home from a day that started at 8am and it is now 12:35am. I would have thanked you all sooner but as a caregiver we can not take or make calls while with our clients. I must say I am so grateful and humbled that you all gave so much to help me. I was in tears over my financial situation yesterday and today changed everything. You have given me hope again. If I could thank you all by writing each one of you a thank you note I would. That is how I was raised. Please know after a year of being bullied and harassed at a previous employer to my current I have become a self proclaimed kindness warrior. I will pay this act forward at the first opportunity I get. Thank you all again so very much from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul. Sincerely, Stacey Gardner

I Need Your Help With My Utility Bill After Paying For Car Repairs.

My Story:

I am a single 55-year-old woman. I work as a caregiver for a senior community. I work as many hours as I can but often the schedule changes and is at the discretion of the company I work for.

I earn enough to pay for my basic needs every month, however, I live paycheck to paycheck. I had no savings set aside when my car required major repairs. This is my only transportation and without it I could not get to work. This made it impossible to pay some of my other bills. I have had to choose between paying one bill or another and have not been able to fully catch up. I need Modest Needs' help paying a utility bill in order to get current on everything.

Your help will allow me to pay every single one of my bills on time. You would make a long-lasting impact on my life and household. I help others as a career and I have faith that others are doing this as well. Thank you for your generosity and for lifting me up during this hard time.
