Single Mom Needs Help After Missing Work for Sick Child

My Story:

I am a single mother with a 10 year old son. My son is a very energetic boy that loves sports and reading. I work a full time job that I have been at for 11 years and I have a part time job as well that I've been with for 2 years.

As a single mother with no other supporters, I have to work two jobs to support us. We do not have any savings and basically live month to month. I have fallen behind because my son has asthma and is suffering from migraines which caused me to lose days at work to be home with him. That uses up my hours and I have to use leave without pay. We need the air conditioner on for my son so we cannot let our electric get behind. That bill is one of my highest priorities but I need your help with my car insurance. Without insurance I cannot safely get my son where he needs to me.

This funding will help me get on track with the bill and keep my services on. I will be able to maintain our budget and get back our sense of stability. Without your help there will be a domino effect with all of my bill. I will have to find somewhere to stay with or go to a shelter. I can't have my son in the home with no air, especially with 3 digit weather temperatures. Your help would be greatly appreciate and leave a lasting impact on my small family.
