This person has left the following thank you note:

Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart! On behalf of myself and my daughter I want to thank anyone and everyone who helped with my application request. From the donors to the persons at Modest Needs I so appreciate the help! A year and a half ago my daughter and I escaped an abusive marriage / household. We left with only minimal belongings and money. We struggled for over a year. In August when we were able we moved closer to family. Since August we have moved and able to a house, my daughter has successfully started and has become involved a new school and I have found a great long term job. As everyone knows that it takes time to get on your feet after a situation like this, we have had little to no extra money for bills. With your help of this grant I will be able to pay a final bill that I will no longer have and gain a little more towards getting back on my feet. Words can�t express my gratitude towards everyone who donated to my grant. It�s kind people like you that make me feel blessed! Again on behalf of my daughter and myself, I thank everyone for all their support. I hope to be able to someday pay it forward to others the way you have helped me. God Bless You All! With Gratitude! Megan & Emma

Single Mother Needs Help With Preivous Electric Bill After Moving From Abusive Marriage

My Story:

I am a single female living with my 13 year old daughter. Last year I left my abusive husband and in August our divorce was finalized. We moved back home to South Dakota from Minnesota where my ex-husband moved us two years ago. We moved closer to my family, who is very supportive. I have found a really great job with benefits for myself and my daughter. My daughter has started a new school and is doing very well and is very happy. We feel safe and happy with our new start.

My marriage was abusive and I had to leave abruptly. I didn't take much money with me as my husband controlled mostly everything. I did have a full time job and took as much opportunity as I could to improve my financial situation, but my pay for last year was very low. Once my divorce was final my daughter and I decided to move back to South Dakota to be closer to our family. I have found a good job but with the lack of money last year plus all the moving expenses we incurred have taken a toll on us getting caught back up. I need Modest Needs help with a utility bill from my old apartment. I have not been able to make any payments towards it as of yet. I am afraid it could go to collections.

This would be so helpful as I have gotten a full time job with benefits and once I get all the double bills paid I will be able to pay all my current bills with my income and keep us afloat. I just cannot afford the back bills. I would be greatly and deeply appreciative for any help you may be able to offer my family during this time.
