User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeMy wife and I would like to sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the financial help you've provided. It literally has felt like a life or death situation because if we were unable to pay our mortgage, the snowball effect from that like loss of good credit, excessive late fees, possibly loss of home would have been beyond devastating. We know that donating money is not easy as everyone needs the money they have and in most cases, there is no 'extra' money lying around. Many are not willing to sacrifice to help others but we are so glad you were. Again, we wholeheartedly appreciate your donation(s) and feel eternally grateful to you for helping us save our home.

Mortgage Help Due to Furlough

My Story:

I am 2 1/2 years married to my wife who has been furloughed since December 22 and getting ready to miss her 2nd paycheck. I am disabled with heart and kidney disease and receive disability. I work part-time as well but my disability and part-time salary is not enough to cover the bills of the household. My wife is a dedicated public servant working for the Federal Aviation Administration for the last 26 years.

We basically live paycheck to paycheck but have very few dollars put away for necessary repairs for the house and car. Currently, we have leaking plumbing and have to use the money we do have to get a bathroom shower replaced as it is damaging the ceiling below. Our vehicles are necessary to get back and forth to work but they are OLD and needs expensive repairs on almost a regular basis now, which contributes to why we live paycheck to paycheck even on a government salary. We need Modest Needs to help us pay for our mortgage payment so that we can maintain our loan's good standing, maintain our decent credit ratings and be able to use what money we do have for food, repairs, utilities, gas, etc.

We definitely will be in jeopardy of losing the home if this government shutdown continues. If Modest Needs pays this mortgage payment, we will not incur 'snowball' losses. It will also help us maintain faith that there are people in this world who see injustice and are willing to help in times like this. We never thought we would be in a situation so bad that we would have to reach out for help but here we are. It is tough and we hope that we can receive much needed relief for this unfortunate situation.
