Hello to all, I would first like to take the opportunity at moments like this one to say simply, God Is! I am extremely grateful to each and every persons that came together and decided to fully fund my application! The feeling is a bit overwhelming because the timing is so precise that I know God is working through each and every donor that has helped to put me and my now, 2 month old daughter in a better position. I am so thankful for you all! I will never forget how you all, people that don�t even know me reached out and helped me in my time of need. When I am back on my feet and I�m in a position to be able to help the next person, a stranger even, I will remember this moment. When it is time to teach my daughter life lessons and the importance of helping and caring about others, this will be the story that I tell! I can not stress enough the impact that you all have made in my life and the amount of gratitude that I feel. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! God Bless you all!
I Have a Baby on the Way. I Need Help with Rent While I'm Out of Work!
I am a single female who lives alone currently, but I am 23 weeks pregnant. I am preparing as best as possible for my incoming child, but the current situation has made things more complicated. I was recently laid-off from both of my jobs and it has been tough to get enough together to make sure my newborn will have everything she needs. In spite of that, I am so excited to welcome her into the world!
The uncertainty surrounding my employment has caused me a lot of stress financially, but I have been making it work so far. However, the unemployment benefits that I have been relying on have been reduced drastically and I can no longer make ends meet. I am worried about the situation my daughter will come into if I cannot get enough money together soon. Therefore, I am asking for help with paying my rent.
I cannot afford to lose my home right now because I am an expecting mother, and I have to give my daughter the best possible life that I can. I do not want to be in a situation where my newborn and I are homeless. In truth, I need this help for the sake of my daughter, not myself. I want her to grow up in a stable home because that is what every child deserves. Your help would mean that she gets to have a safe and stable home. On behalf of my daughter, thank you all for your kindness and for your generosity. I will tell her what has happened here today when she is older and can understand what it means to lift others up.
