This person has left the following thank you note:
I am greatly appreciated and I am overwhelmed at the same time at the help that was provided for me and my two boys in our time of need. I have been sitting here in depression and praying and God has answered my prayers by using his wonderful people. This program has helped me to see that their are still good people with good hearts willing to help people during their lowest times and helps mothers/fathers/guardian better provide for their kids when they don't know what to do and see nothing but darkness and hard times. After reading the funded email I was ecstatic and immediately began praying and crying, thank you God, and thank you so much Modest Needs Donors.
I'm Finally Back to Work, but We Need Help Catching Up on Our Bills Before It's too Late!
I'm a single mother raising two boys, and I love my small family dearly. My youngest is 4 years old but is already very responsible and respectful. He's incredibly smart and funny too! My oldest is also very smart and excels academically. They both love spending time together and get along really well despite being so young. My children are my entire world, and I have always done my best to support their wants and needs.
Recently, I started working as an insurance agent, and so far, I really enjoy my job. However, before finding work, I was unemployed with almost no income to rely on. This forced us to get behind on a lot of bills, and even though I'm back to working full-time, it has been a struggle to get all the way caught up. I'm afraid that I won't be able to get caught up in time, specifically on my electric bill, and that we will lose service as a result.
I'm asking for help with our electricity bill because if we lose service, I could potentially lose my job and my children could potentially miss schooling remotely. It's important to keep the power on for those reasons, but getting this bill taken care of will also ensure that we have enough money to pay our rent too. We'll be able to keep the lights on and keep our home if we get this help. My children have seen me struggle for too long, and I want to make sure that we stay on our feet, so they don't have to watch their mother struggle any longer. I want them to know that there are good people in this world so that when they grow up, they'll no how much it means to give to people who are struggling. Thank you for taking the time to consider our situation and thank you for your kindness.
