User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeFirst of all, I would like to humbly say how grateful I am to any and all that cared enough to help me in my time of need. This is truly a blessing. Every time that I saw a new donation to my account, I thought to myself, how I wish I could 'personally' thank them and wondered who they were. This funding and the wonderful help of Modestneeds, and the generous/kind people that support the organization, will definitely be a huge help in me getting back on track. I also plan on staying there! I also plan on being on the donating side next time often, paying it forward to other people, like me, that just sometimes need a little help...I cannot thank you all, and Modestneeds enough for your kindness.

Relocated and Lost Hours During Slow Season, Please Help With My Electric Bill

My Story:

I am a single man in my 50s, living with my beagle. I moved to the panhandlers of Florida to be near my mom. She is 76 years old. My career is restaurant hospitality.

I never knew this was a 'seasonal town' until I ran into low hours when the season ended. Now I struggle unlike I ever imagined. I tried to find other ways to earn money with my company, but I was too low on the totem pole. I didn't want to lose my position but sought other employment on the side. The time it took to find another job to offer supplement hours caused me to fall behind. I now need your help with my electric bill.

Financially, any assistance would help me make it until busy season starts again in late February. Then I can build a savings should this odder again. Personally, any help would remind me that there are good people out there. I would do the best I can to never be in this situation next year or any time again. Thank you.
