This person has left the following thank you note:
Words cannot express the gratitude and emotion I feel after receiving the email notifying me that our application had been fully funded by kind and generous people as yourself. After a year like 2020 and the challenges my family and I faced, this token of kindness will never be forgotten. This will help us get more of a footing under us financially as we move into this new year. My oldest child grasps the challenges we have had financially since his mother tested positive for covid and the set back it put on us financially. This will encourage him and bring relief and a smile to his face. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you!
I Had to Isolate After My Wife Tested Positive for COVID. Now, Without Help, We're Being Evicted
My wife and I have been married for 8 years, and we have three children, two boys and one girl. They're all really high energy, and the boys love wrestling with dad and riding their bikes, while our daughter loves baking with mom. Our children are all still very young, so my wife stays home with them during the day while I'm at work. I'm an assistant department manager at a home improvement store, and I love my job and work hard to provide for my family.
We were managing this pandemic just fine until my wife came down with the virus. As per my company's policy, I was not allowed to work until she had completed her quarantine and her symptoms disappeared. Losing this income was incredibly difficult on our finances, and we're struggling to keep up with all of our expenses now, especially our rent. Even with Covid-19 going on, our landlord hasn't been too willing to work with any of their tenants, so I'm worried about what will happen if we get behind on our rent.
I'm not usually one to ask for help, but with my family's home at stake I know it's what I have to do. That's why I'm humbly requesting help with our rent for this month. We're still behind on some other bills, and this wouldn't get us completely in the clear, but it'll get us close enough to where we can survive with a roof over our heads. I'm back to working now, and hopefully my wife will be able to find work once the kids can get back to school in-person. Until then, we would be incredibly grateful to receive this extremely generous help.
