This person has left the following thank you note:
I can not even begin to explain how much your help meant to me. My family is a priceless gift to me, greater than anything I can imagine. If it weren't for your help, I am not sure what I would do. I do not have the words to tell you how truly fortunate I feel, and how thankful I am for your help. Thanks for providing the kind of help that I needed. Your financial support has provided much needed stress relief. I owe you gratitude and so much more. When you stood for me, there was none by my side. Being honest, I didn't expect that you would do that much for me. I have been able to get out of this difficult time because of you. I want to thank you for all the support and love. God bless you.
My Wife Lost Her Job & I Lost Hours at Mine. Please Help Us Keep the Power On!
I'm a married father, and my wife and I have four children together. We've got three girls and one boy; my girls are 11 years old, 5 years old, and 2 months old, and my boy is 13 years old. I work as an air conditioner repair man full-time, and I'm an essential worker. I install A/C systems for schools and hospitals, and I'm also working on getting my bachelor's degree. However, my wife lost her job back in March and has been unable find work since then.
Recently, my hours were cut back, and we've gone from barely making it to being behind on almost all of our bills. I'm only getting half of my paycheck, and my wife is completely out of work. We're really far behind on our electricity bill because we've been delaying paying it in order to pay our rent. We're in serious danger of losing service on our electricity. I'm doing my best to keep everything together but am slowly losing my grip on all of our expenses.
This would be the relief that we so desperately need right now, and it would be huge step towards getting back on track. I'm not asking for anyone to take care of every single one of my bills, but we do need a little help right now if we're going to be able to get back to being self-sufficient. We could never begin to repay this generosity, but I promise that we will try. We will do our best to make sure that our kids can hang on to this as an example of doing good in the world as well. Thank you all for your kindness and compassion during these hard times.
