This person has left the following thank you note:

I would sincerely like to thank you for helping me and my family with your donation. I am aware of the sacrifice and selflessness of such a compassionate act, and I am completely amazed at how many wonderful people there are in the world (like you) that are willing to give to those in need. This donation means that my family can move forth and find some level of financial stability and, more importantly, will soon be able to be in the position to help someone else. Thank you a million times over and bless you.

Please Help With Electric Bill During Job Transition

My Story:

I live with my retired mother and my two little dogs Doodle and Chloe. I recently switched from a retail job to being a PCA (personal care attendant) for elderly and disabled clients. I am planning to go back to school this summer to study Library Science.

I switched jobs because I was not earning enough pay and we fell behind on everything during the transition. We have had a bad winter and our electric bill has been high because of the low temperatures. We need help paying the electric bill and if we do not get help we will face disconnection and possible eviction since we are responsible for keeping the utilities on in our agreement.

We will be able to fully catch up with your help, and moving forward I will have more income with my new job. I hope one day we will be able to pay it forward as well. Your assistance would stop a financial downward spiral.
