This person has left the following thank you note:

As I read the email from Modest Needs informing me of your decision to help fund my request for help, a momentary feeling of calmness came over me, something that has been hard to come by lately. This was followed by a lasting feeling of humility that you would kindly and generously assist me and my family in a time of need, especially when so many are in need as well. Having some of our immediate expenses taken care of gives us a sense of relief and assures that we will be able to more easily meet our other needs. Your thoughtfulness has strengthened my faith in humankind, and I am humbled by your gift. From all of my family to yours, a heart-felt thank you!

Coronavirus: Married Father of Twins Needed your Help With Bill

My Story:

I am a married father of twin seven year olds. They are avid readers, excel at math, and love to play sports of all kinds. My boy loves basketball, and my girl is my little ballerina. The kids favorite thing to do is play with our dog and cuddle with our cat. I have been working as a server in a restaurant, and my wife works for the State of California.

We earn enough to cover our expenses each month, but recently lost my job when the restaurant closed due to the Corona Virus Pandemic. We don't have any savings set aside, and instantly lost half of our income. We will struggle to pay our mortgage along with all of our other bills and expenses, and we recently found out that we need a $2000 repair to our heat pump. We've been using a pellet stove to heat the house, but once it gets hot out we will have no air conditioning without this repair. Likely we will have to forego the repair to try to pay our other bills, and we'll still be short. We need Modest Needs' help to pay for our car payment and insurance, and our internet.

This funding would allow us to keep current with our bills and give us a little security in a time when thing are uncertain. It will also allow me the time I need to train for a career in the mortgage business so that we can stop living paycheck to paycheck. Your generosity and willingness to help will reinforce the daily mantra we have instilled in our children- 'If you don't see kindness, be the kindness!'

As of 2020-07-03, this application has been fully funded!

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