This person has left the following thank you note:

To my donors, I would sincerely like to thank each one of you that made this possible to help me in my time of need. I am a single mother of 5 and my car is my source of transportation to get me back and forth to work in order to pay my bills. The dental bills were a huge set back but I had to make the right decision and put my family first. The money that you have donated will get my car payments back on track and this has helped me out more than you know. This is truly a blessing and I would like to say thank you again for sacrificing your own needs to help me out in my time of need. I am sincerely thankful and forever grateful for everything you guys have done to help me. Jaime R.

Dental Care Costs Cause Single Mom of 5 to Get Behind

My Story:

I am a single mother of 5 children. I am employed full time as Auditor. My 17 year old enjoys basketball and softball. My 16 year old enjoys soccer, basketball, and cross country. My 13 year old enjoys wrestling snd both my 2 year old and 1 year old both enjoy playing with toys and playing sports in the yard.

I earn enough money to pay my basic bills even though I live paycheck to paycheck. I have no savings set aside for emergency events. My son recently had to get all 4 wisdom teeth extracted and braces put on his teeth due to issues he has with teeth not being able to come in because he doesn't have enough space in his mouth. The braces are supposed to correct the issues that he had. There was a 600.00 down payment that I had to make in order to get them on and that is what caused me to not be able to pay my car payments.

I need the vehicle in order to get back and forth to my job which is 1 hr 15 min away from my home. If I lose this vehicle I will lose my transportation to and from work and will eventually lose my job. This funding will bring our household current with all of our bills again, and restore our sense of stability.Your help would make a long-lasting impact on our family, and it would set a wonderful example for my children. I would like for them to see that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others, and use this as my inspiration to help others in turn. I thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
