User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeFirst of all, our family just wants to say Thank You! In this world right now, with everything that has been going on over the years it is hard to think that there are people out there who really want to make a difference and help those in need. I am one who always wants and tries to see the good in people and always give the benefit of the doubt. My family and I are so grateful and thankful and blessed that we found Modest Needs because without it we would be so much further down the rabbit whole than we are. We are trying to get out and we have come a long way, especially with your help now! With your generous donation we are able to not have to cut corners and figure out where the money is going to come from for our next bills or worry about how we are going to come up with the money for groceries for a couple weeks. I know it's always in the back of people's minds that expenses can happen when you least expect them and we all try to have a blanket but sometimes that blanket just isn't enough because a million things ended up happening all at once, just to find out your blanket just wasn't enough. I now know that my always finding the good in people isn't worthless because there are so many people out there willing to help, it's just finding the right place and being patient. Again, our family can't thank you enough! You are AMAZING! Everyone is going through something and a little bit of help goes a long way.

Hardworking Family Needs Help With Unexpected Furnace Repair

My Story:

I am a married mother of 3 kids. I have two sons, ages 5 and 11, and a daughter who is 13. They are all wonderful kids and they do very well in school. Sports are a big thing in our family and we run around a lot. My daughter was chosen as Student of the Week at her school which is super exciting. I work full-time as a dog breeder/groomer and my husband works full-time at a seasonal job with asphalt and is currently a full-time student in IT.

We earn a good amount of money but from debt situations we got ourselves into earlier in our life we are now getting more on track with things. With 3 children all of their activities tends to all add up. My husband works a seasonal job which makes things tighter. We try to plan for emergencies but we did not plan for a furnace issue like this. It was certainly a needed repair as without it we would not have heat. We need Modest Needs' help to pay for our furnace repair bill. We did manage to pay a couple hundred dollars of it so far, but we are in fear we cannot do that every month.

This funding will bring us peace of mind knowing that we will be okay and not have to worry so much about an extra expenses causing us to have to pick between bills like groceries or gas. This also will help us be able to put away a little more money so if this happens again we can be better prepared. We try to teach our children to manage money and that nothing grows on trees. Everything has consequences and money is certainly an enemy when not used wisely. Thank you for reading our story.
