This person has left the following thank you note:
Thank you all so much for your kindness and support. This comes as such a surprise to me but in a good way. It is so difficult to find myself in a situation where I must ask others for help. My pride has always been in the way. I really had to get past that and I realized that everyone goes through rough times and there are people who understand this and are willing to help. I am forever grateful for this gift. It will never be forgotten and I will pay it forward as soon as I can get back on my feet. This has spread some much needed sunshine in my life. I have actually just been sitting here trying to figure out how and what I was going to do with the mounting bills to the point that it has given me a headache. For some reason I decided to pick up my phone and check my email and to my surprise, I received the message that my request was funded! What does this mean for me and my family? It means we can breathe a sigh of relief for once in what seems like forever. It restores my faith and uplifts my spirits so much to know that we are not forgotten and we are not alone. I feel energized now like I am able to put things into perspective. It truly brings me to tears to know that strangers have been so generous to us. I always tell my boys that when you can do something for someone else you should do it even if it will simply make them smile. Generosity and kindness is what our world needs especially during times like this. From my family to yours Bless you all and thank you so very much. We appreciate this more than words can express. This is such a wonderful platform and a great thing you all are doing for people who just need a hand. Our world is beautiful and life is a gift even in despair we can find it in our hearts to love one another. I feel very blessed by your kind donations. Thank you for choosing to help my family.
Coronavirus: Single Mom of 2 Needs Help With Electric Bill
I am a 40 year old single mother of two sons. Before I was furloughed I worked as a full time bartender/server at a hotel. I live with my 12 year old and I also have a 21 year old son who lives with my mother. My 12 year old loves comics, mind craft, sims, and Fortnite. He enjoys making music with his older brother.
So much has happened since being furloughed. I had a very expensive car repair which was the first thing. That took all of my savings and I was actually just getting on my feet but had to make the decision to take bill money to pay for my car repair. This put me way behind and the very next day after getting my car out of the shop I got the call stating that we were on furlough. My heart dropped. I had one more paycheck and that was it. The last paycheck was all I had until unemployment came through several weeks later. At that time I was already so behind on all of my bills that I've been trying to prioritize and make arrangements with them all. I really need Modest Needs relief on my electric bill. It is one of my largest utility bills and I just have not been able to get anything to them since this all happened.
If I receive any help with this bill or any other it would really take a great burden off of me. I could focus on my mortgage and insurance bills. I do not have health insurance and I recently had an incident where I had to go to the emergency room because I was in extreme pain. I have a bulging disc. I had to pay out of pocket for meds and my follow up appointment. If this bill gets paid I can focus more on my health and getting my son through the rest of the school year. He is struggling in math and I really want to get some materials to help him so that he wont fall behind . Home schooling has had a negative impact on him and I want to give a little more attention to his needs and education while I have the time available. Thank you.
