This person has left the following thank you note:

User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI do not think there are enough words to express how much your donations have made to myself and my family. I was brought to tears to hear we received enough funding to assist with our needs. You have provided the opportunity for us to get ahead and out of the financial hardship we are currently experiencing especially right before the birth of my second daughter. Thank you is truly not enough but it is a start. Thank you for your generosity and kindness. After being kicked down so many times this is the positive influence we needed in our lives to continue to smile and pay it forward for others in the future. I wish you many blessings for being such a wonderful person with a kind soul. With much love in our hearts from our family to yours THANK YOU!!



Caring for My Daughter Cost Me My Job. I'm Now Back to Work But Will Soon Be Evicted. Please Help!

My Story:

I am currently a single mother with a one year old daughter and another child on the way. My boyfriend and father to my children is a great dad, but he currently does not live in the home as he is taking care of a family member that has extreme medical needs. So for now, I have to take care of my children by myself.

In October 2017, my daughter became very sick, and I had no choice but to take time off from work to care for her. My job wasn't very understanding and decided to let me go. I was able to survive with the small help of a family member, the money I had saved and then my tax return, but it took much longer to gain full time employment than I had expected and I ran out of money. I finally have a new job, but I'm already a month behind on my rent, and my landlord has told me that if I can't get caught up, he's going to have to evict us.

I'm here desperately hoping that Modest Needs will help me to get back on track by funding my request for one month's rent. Your help will allow me the chance to get my finances back in order and provide the housing needed for my children. I have created a strict budget to ensure expenses are paid and a savings can be started again. Your funding would be a fantastic start for myself to organize my finances (as I have already started doing) so I may be the proper example for my daughters so they may grow up without the struggles of finances impacting their childhood. I want my daughters to be a positive influence on society and know there are good people out there. Thank you so much for caring about my family.
