A Divorced Mom Needs Help After Changing Jobs.

My Story:

I am a newly divorced mom of a 10-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl. My kids are full of energy and love music and technology. I am trying to get back on my feet after a tiresome divorce. I recently got a new job working full time at one of the nation's largest social media giants.

I barely survive pay check to pay check. In November of last year, I was involved in a hit and run. Someone hit my parked car and took off. The vehicle was totaled, and I am now left to pay what's remaining of that car loan. I rolled over most of it into my new car loan which has made it pretty sizable. I found a new job which is great! It pays more and gives me flexibility in my schedule. But in February my previous employer did not pay me my last check and there was a delay in receiving my first paycheck, so now I'm even further in the hole. I just need Modest Needs' assistance in catching up in my new car payment.

Your kindness will bring us current for the coming months. This will be a huge weight off my shoulders. I'm afraid if you do not help me, I will lose my vehicle, which I rely on to get to work and transport my children. You would allow me to focus on other things that are important, like making the rent payment. Your help will give me a strong foundation now that I am on my own and do not have much support to lean on.
