This person has left the following thank you note:

I want to say thank you from the very bottom on my heart! I am forever indebted to the lovely people who have blessed us with this financial help. I have had some other hiccups occur and it feels like when will this end! God is truly working for something bigger in my life and I will always remember to give a hand up to others in times of need. I am in tears! May God bless Modest Needs, it's people seeking help, and it's donors! Thank you!

I Had to Fix My Car So I Could Get to Work. They're About to Shut Off our Power. Please Help!

My Story:

I am a divorced mother of two. I have a 7 year old daughter who loves animals and all things outdoors, and I have a 13 year old son who likes PC gaming and bicycles. We also have 3 small dogs, a fat cat, and a hamster. Together we have a nice little ark. I work full time doing customer care for a dental insurance company and I work part time 6 days a week in the evenings cleaning a building.

I live pay check to pay check and I struggle to meet every need each month but when an unexpected comes up it really throws me into a bind. My car was wrecked a few years ago by my ex husband and the repairs were not done properly which caused my car to be out of alignment. I had to forgo paying my mortgage to pay for an alignment and new tires on my car because they worn to the metal. I need Modest Needs' help to pay my past due light bill. I have one month lagging behind. I am terrified if I don't get it caught up they will take next steps to disconnect.

This funding will help me to get current and start creating a fund to fall back if another unexpected bill occurs in the future. This will also help my children keep the stability they know. We have always been very giving to others in any way we can, and I want to show them that there are good people who will also give back to us.
