Thank you so very much. My family is very grateful that we can get the help during this time of the uncertainty of what may come. Our phone is what we have to keep us connected to our families and school. And now with the fires we are dealing with our phones are much appreciated. Thank you to each and every one of you who made it possible.
A Family Needs Help with Their Phone Bill
My partner and I have been together for 14 years now, and we have an absolutely brilliant 8-year-old daughter. She enjoys math, pre-algebra is her favorite, and she loves to write her own songs too. She's a very bubbly child, who loves unicorns and JoJo Siwa. Our daughter is our entire world and we will do whatever we can to give her all of the tools that she needs to succeed.
Currently, I work at a grocery store, but my hours have been cut down to just 8 hours per week. This has made it incredibly difficult to pay our bills. Furthermore, in May we lost our home after we received misinformation from the leaseholder about the subleasing process. We had nowhere to go and had put a lot of our money into the deposits for the home that we lost, so we purchased a motor home on very short notice. We have been trying to make it a healthy and safe place for our child, but we are struggling really badly. We do not technically have an address, so we have been renting a mailbox in order to get our phone bill, being that it is our only way to keep our hotspot going for our Wi-Fi. My child and I are both in school currently and are learning remotely so having internet access is imperative to our success.
Therefore, I am asking for help with both our mailbox lease and our phone bill.
We are facing extremely difficult circumstances. It cuts me deeply to know that my daughter can feel the struggle that we are enduring too, and all I want to do is alleviate this burden for her sake. She is a brilliant child and she does not deserve to struggle like this; she deserves a future like every other child deserves a future. I am worried that if we do not get some help then I will not be able to provide that for her. I want to look my daughter in the eyes when she is all grown up and I want to say to her 'never forget the people who brought you to where you are now,' and I want her to remember you all, the people who gave to us when we needed it most. Thank you all for your grace and for you compassion.
