User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeWords could never explain my gratitude to you. You have saved my home and my sanity. This is truly a blessing. Today I explained to my 6 and 8 year old how God sent us wonderful angles to help us throughout this rough time we have encountered. They, also, want to give you a hug and say THANK YOU! Your selflessness has been an awesome lesson, not only for me but for my children as well. Today we give thanks, to God first and to you, for being a kind hearted person. This world is in turmoil and you can still find kindness, so Thank you! From the bottom of our hearts and with every bit of spirit we have. You truly have no idea what this has done for my family and me. May God bless you and your family!

I've Lost Income to COVID & Need Help with My Utilities Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mother raising two wonderful children, an 8-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter. My son is 8 years old, and he is a kind, compassionate, humble, and all-around good kid. He has an unbelievable amount of patience when it comes to his sister. She is a little spit fire, and she has a ton of energy. She's full of life and loves unicorns, painting, and dancing. I work at a medical center to make ends meet for my children.

Recently, I fell behind on my bills after my children's father lost his job to Covid-19. This caused me to lose the child support I was receiving. In addition to that, Covid-19 forced me to switch jobs which left me without a paycheck for almost three weeks. Both of these situations have forced me to get behind on my utilities, and they will be cut off very soon if I can't pay them.

I'm asking for help with this utility bill in order to bring my household up to current. I can't afford to have my power shut off because both of my children are in school remotely, and I can't let them get behind. Through everything, I have instilled in my children that God is good and that all these things are just trials and things that will test your faith. I truly believe this will be another testimony to share with my kids. Thank you for your compassion and grace, and may God bless you.
