This person has left the following thank you note:
You have definitely blessed my heart today and renewed my faith in people. 2020 has been such a crazy year with the pandemic to being laid off to people being kind to each other in general. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I pledge to you ALL that I will pay it forward even more when I am able to. this has inspired me to not change who I am, still be caring and loving despite when others treat you bad, it has increased my faith in God. I was not expecting this at all, i had all but given up that my application would be funded. None of you know me personally but you went into your hearts and pockets to help a family in need. This will go a long way in getting me back on my feet. Modest Needs thanks for all you do. This shows that we are still a nation of HOPE. LOVE AND COMPASSION. God Bless You all. Thank you doesn't seem enough, but know I am forever grateful!
Coronavirus: I Have Faced Hardship Before, but I Need Help now More than Ever!
I am a widowed single mother with a daughter who lives on campus at college. I also allowed my aunt to move in after she lost her job at a restaurant. She took care me as a child and I am returning the kindness she has shown me all my life.
I was laid-off from my job with a law firm and took a much lower paying job at a nonprofit nursing facility. This job is rewarding because I absolutely love helping to care for the elderly; they bring me the most smiles and so much love. I lost my mom in 2013, my son in 2014, and my husband in 2015, yet I am still here for a purpose. I have faced much hardship in my life and right now I am just asking for help to get me on my feet. Specifically, I need help with rent.
I have health issues such as diabetes, and I lost my job due to the law firm I was working for shut down due to lack of business from Covid-19. After I lost benefits, I have not been able to get a lot of my meds, which has caused my health to decline. This funding would help me to better afford my medications, and it would relieve my stress, thereby improving my health overall. Thank you all for taking the time to read my story and thank you, in advance, for your generosity.
