This person has left the following thank you note:

It has been said that it's better to give than to receive. I don't know if that is true, but you are some pretty magnificent people. To fund my application, well, I honestly didn't expect it because I imagine everyone is in the same boat right now. It's truly wonderful that you want to help others in this way, and so quickly as well. It gives me hope for this human race. I truly hope that I can pass this goodwill on and that the next person passes it on, and so forth. Maybe sharing goodwill is the silver lining of this terrible time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and may you be blessed with good health to match your good hearts!

Coronavirus: Two Layoffs Family Needs Rental Help

My Story:

I am a 60-year-old single mother of 3 wonderful children, grandmother of 1, with another grandchild due imminently. My 2 youngest (son, 21 and daughter, 23) live with me since graduating from college and work part-time. I am a professional violist with The Pennsylvania Ballet, Opera Philadelphia, Delaware Symphony Orchestra, Opera Delaware, Broadway at the Kimmel and other smaller organizations.

My current and near-future work as a musician has been canceled indefinitely because of the Coronavirus outbreak. I do not have a savings account and every last cent I make goes to necessities. We cannot survive on my daughter's income alone, half of which goes to student loans.

This funding will allow us to keep our home until we wind another solution during this difficult time. Also, it will show our landlord that we are a responsible family and not about to leave him in the lurch having to pay for this property by himself. We are so very worried about everything right now, unable to sleep, depressed beyond belief. Having the rent taken care of would be a huge burden lifted and strengthen our belief that angels really do exist.

As of 2020-03-25, this application has been fully funded!

This request for help was funded at the recommendation and through the support of Modest Needs' donors.
