Donors, I was uncertain of this site and did not think it was real. I was not sure if anyone realy care of my needs. Today I am very thinkful and know there are real people out there that care. I really appreciate the help of the donors and know that they all sacrificed something to help me in my time of need. The donors decision to help me and my family has changed the way I see people. I really appreciate the donors willingness to reach out to my family and I. Thank you so very much.

Electric Has Turned off, Please Help Single Mother Get Lights Back On

My Story:

I am a mother of two boys who enjoy sports and video games. I work full time as s a Credit & Collections Representative at Children's Hospital. I love to cook. I am the sole provider for my family and we are living pay check to pay check.

We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but anything out of the ordinary causes issue and shifting money around. I currently have a protected order against my abuser, spouse and father of my sons. He has not helped with any household bills since the order date and he owes us thousands of dollars in child support. Recently our power disconnected since we had some financial hardship due to court costs. We need Modest Needs help to restore our power immediately or we will loose the few items we have in our refrigerator.

The funding will restore the electric and give us sense of stability. My boys have summer jobs and I will be picking up old cooking and billing jobs. Your help will mean a lot since we have nowhere else to turn to. This would truly be a blessing.
