Veteran & Father of 3 Needs Help to Bring Water Bill Current

My Story:

I am a married father of three wonderful children. My 12-year-old daughter is very energetic and loves her church friends, and my 10-year-old stepson is super energetic and loves sports and video games. All three participate in some kind of extracurricular activity and love every minute of it. I am a full-time student doing vocational training to become an IT Analyst, and my wife is a full-time student going for her bachelors while working part-time at a dental office.

We earn enough to pay for our basic expenses every month, but we tend to live paycheck to paycheck. We have no savings set aside because of my career change. I was mechanic in the Army for a long time and it took a toll on my body. My wife is doing everything she can to help but its just not enough with 3 kids. I am now receiving GI bill benefits while in school, but this transition caused us to fall behind. We need your help with our water bill.

We currently do not have water to flush the toilet or take showers. Or to simply drink water. Please help us. This funding will bring our household current with all of our bills again, and restore our sense of stability. I will soon be done with school and be able to get a job. Your help would make a long-lasting impact on our family, and it would set a wonderful example for our children. We would like for them to see that people can truly make a difference in the lives of others, and use this as our inspiration to help others in turn.
