This person has left the following thank you note:

As my hands tremble with excitement, gratitude and praise, I want to express to you my deepest appreciation for helping my son and me. Because words don't adequately express how I feel, I will pay it forward as an outward example of my most innermost thankfulness. Because of you and your generosity, my faith in those around me has been affirmed. There was never a moment that I doubted goodness and each of you is a reason why! You have my word that I will cheerfully become a consistent donor here at Modest Needs. From this day forward, every rainbow of hope that I see gracing God's glorious heaven, I will remember my Modest Needs family. We may not know each other personally, but we are certainly connected by hearts that sacrificially give to others, even strangers. May God continue to abundantly bless and keep you.

Please Help Single Mother Keep Home For Her Son

My Story:

I am a single mother of a fifteen-year-old son. My son receives all A's on his report card and loves sports. I work full-time as a substitute para-educator in our local school district. I enjoy working with students with special needs.

I earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, however, our school district was off for three weeks during part of December and January and because I am new to the job, I did not receive pay for these weeks. It put our monthly budget in the deficit and we became late on our recurring rent charges. We need Modest Needs help to get caught up.

This funding will bring our household current with rent and I will be able to make timely rent payments in the future as my employment has become steady again. Your help would make a long-term impact on my son and me while showing my son that all the lessons I have taught him about giving are valuable. I would like for him to understand why we have always helped others and will continue to do so as our budget allows.
