I Took My Kids & Fled My Abuser. When We Pay This Gas Bill We're Back On Our Feet. Please Help!

My Story:

I am a newly single mom of 2 boys. My 10 year old is a happy go lucky, smiley, lovable little boy. He was born with a major heart defect that required open heart surgery at 8 days old. He loves playing outside at the park, watching YouTube videos and playing video games. My 14 year old is a funny, artistic and musically inclined boy. He loves to paint, play video games, create music and post videos on YouTube. I work full time for the pharmacy sector of a healthcare company.

I was in an abusive relationship for some time, but recently this escalated to physical violence while still living with my ex-husband. Myself and my 14 year old son were both assaulted and we had to leave our home of 10 years. Shortly after relocating I had to obtain a lawyer to assist with custody of my children. My brakes also went out on my car and I had to spend a few hundred dollars to fix them. A vehicle is really important to us since I needed it to transport my kids to school and myself to work. This has been ongoing and costs have caused me to get behind on bills. I need Modest Needs help to pay up my gas bill.

This funding will allow me to stay on track, continue to work, get my kids to school, and allow me to have transportation to a new second job that will keep me above water. This would give me and my boys a sense of peace, as they are old enough to understand that we are in a dire situation. We have no family to help us out, so this would show my boys that even without people of blood relation, there are people out there that care for others.
