This person has left the following thank you note:

Thank you so much to everyone who shared and donated! My sister and I are completely overwhelmed by your help. Our move has been successful, in large part thanks to you. I am preparing my new classroom for the new school year now. Knowing that there are people out there willing to help perfect strangers is a wonderful message and gift to take into a kindergarten class and I hope to help spread the generosity and kindness you have so thoughtfully given to me to both my future students and new neighbors in Florida. Thank you again!

Teacher Needs Help Moving For New Job

My Story:

I'm a teacher in Ohio with a great job offer in Florida. I work primarily with special needs students and love watching them learn and grow. I live with and help support my disabled sister. We're both huge Disney fans and love our three cats: Acheron, Adonis, and King Louie the 2nd.

We pay our bills each month and have managed to save a little, but a cross country move would exhaust all our savings and we would still come up short. We plan to downsize as best we can, so that we won't need as much trailer space for the move. We need Modest Need's help to pay for a moving van. We need to move in July, and have to pay the moving company by July 1.

Moving to Florida will be a fresh start and offer opportunities for our personal and work lives. The move would mean an increase in salary along with a slightly lower cost of living, meaning we would be better able to save for any other unexpected expenses. Thank you so much for any help you can provide us.
