This person has left the following thank you note:
I want to begin and say thank you from the bottom of my heart for offering to help me and my family. When I got the email saying that my funds were donated I immediately cried. From joy and happiness because I have never been one to ask for help and seeing how many people were so willing to help someone without even knowing them really touched my heart. There really truly is good people in this world and I can�t thank you enough for helping me and my family. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders from all your generous donations. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My Son Needs Your Help! I Lost My Job to Covid-19 and I Don't Want to Lose My Car Too.
I am a single mother to a 4-year-old son, and I have also recently become the guardian to my younger sister after both of our parents passed away. Currently, I work full-time as a teacher at a daycare, but I have been out of work since the pandemic occurred in March. My son and I were living paycheck to paycheck before my parents passed and we had to take in my sister, and now the situation is even more difficult, being that we have an extra mouth to feed. I have been unable to put anything away in terms of savings and have been struggling to pay all of our bills.
Recently, I have been unable to make payments towards my car and now I am worried that it will be repossessed. If I lose my car, then we will be cut off and I will be unable to attend my job when it does reopen. The stress of our situation is really taking its toll on me, so that is why I am here now, to request help with my car payment so that I do not lose it.
This would relieve so much stress for my family, and it would free up some funds to help pay for our other bills as well. We have been through some incredibly difficult times, but I can still see the light in the dark, and I know that my family can make it through these difficult times with a little help. Thank you all so much for your consideration and for your empathy.
