This person has left the following thank you note:

I want to express my gratitude to the kind people that have offered to help me and my family cover this unexpected expense. It is truly amazing to know there are people out there willing to help others in need. With this help we can get our vehicle repaired and won't get behind on other bills because of it. I hope to be in the position to pay it forward one day and help someone just as we have been helped. We truly thank you for this selfless act.

Parents of 4 Need Help With Car Repair to Stay Afloat

My Story:

I am a married father of 4 sons. They are ages 13,10, 5, and 1. My wife is a stay at home Mom who puts endless hours in caring for all of their needs. She transports them to and from school daily as well as all of their activities. My 13 year old is a member of the National Junior Honor Society, and is in band. My 10 year old is in football and band and is also very successful in school. My five year old received the 'kindness' award for his whole school. We also have a dog. As for me, I work full time and go to school online at the University of Phoenix. I am working towards my bachelor's degree in hopes to get a better paying job for my family.

We make enough money to cover our bills, but when an emergency pops up it really puts us in a bind. I drive a 2008 Toyota Camry and my wife's vehicle is a 2006 Toyota Sienna with over 180,000 miles. On my way home from work, the night before Thanksgiving mind you, the alternator on my car went out. I was surprised to find out how much the repair was going to be. This type of unexpected expense will put us behind on our bills and jeopardize my job or possible my kids getting to school. I need Modest Needs help with the cost of this repair.

If we receive this funding, we will stay afloat with our bills and not miss work or school. It will also give us a hope in humanity and the want to pay it forward when we are in a better position ourselves. Your assistance would help my family more than I can put into words. Thank you.
