Personally I didn't know where the help, was going to come from. I really appreciate the fact that there are people in the world, that actually do care about the circumstances that people face in life, regardless that we all are facing this at this moment in time. Thank you all once again for coming to me and my families aid. We wish you good health, strong minds, and be at peace during this struggle.

I'm a Single Mom Who Needs Help Giving Her Kids the Education They Deserve!

My Story:

I am a 38-year-old single mom with four children. My children are 8, 13, and 7 years old, and my youngest is 11 months old. They completely rule my world, and I love them more than anything in the world. It has been difficult to take care of us all lately though.

I was working in the restaurant industry when Covid-19 hit, and I was laid-off in March. My children have also all been out of school since March, and I cannot afford childcare for them, so I have had to stay home with them. This has made it exceedingly difficult to find work, part-time or full-time, and I have struggled to make ends meet since the unemployment benefits ran out. I am already severely behind on rent and will probably look for a new place soon. However, in the meantime, I need to keep the power on for my children so that they can continue to go to school remotely.

My children are my entire world, and I want the best for them. However, without your help I fear that they will be unable to attend school online, and I cannot allow them to have a gap in their education. The only way to move up in the world is through education, and my children deserve that opportunity. Your help would give them that opportunity, and for that, I could never truly repay you. I promise to teach them to be charitable as they grow up because they have struggled and should know the importance of helping people like us. Thank you for your support and compassion during this difficult time.
