I want to give a big thank you and appreciation to those donors who have sent funding for my family. We are so grateful for this as we are in a space of catching up with rent etc. I still have not received funding for unemployment benefits, so this is a great help. With you generosity my family can breath getting through this pandemic. Being a single parent with 3 girls and 1 boy is definitely a challenge. I have issues with asking people for help. I have been this way all my life. I had to make a decision do I ask for help, or Do I tell my kids to start packing? Because of Modest needs and its donors I am thankful for it all and to say from the bottom of my heart I am overwhelmed with joy and tears because life is tough and one thing I learned from modest needs is its ok to ask for help and its ok to struggle. I just want to be a good father and this will definitely bring peace. Thank you Modest needs and donors for all your help!
I'm a Single Dad With 4 Kids. I've Been Out of Work due to COVID & We're Losing Our Home This Week.
I'm a single father with four wonderful children, ages 15, 10, 9, and 4 years old. Lately, we often stay home and play board games together, or we play with our two dogs, Raja and Gizmo, who we love very much. My 15-year-old loves to cook, and my 9 and 10-year-old both love to bake and watch movies or play outside. I can't forget to mention that they're also obsessed with doing hair and make-up. My 5-year-old just loves to have fun, and spends a lot of time running, building things, and playing games. I'm so glad that my family all have each other because this year has been really rough for us.
I was laid-off at the beginning of this pandemic, and the unemployment benefits haven't been enough to keep us afloat, especially lately. I've had to sell some of our belongings just to pay our utilities and put food on the table for my four kids and me. I'm behind on my rent for December because we just don't have the funds to pay it, and even though our landlord is working with us, I'm afraid that if I can't come up with the money, we'll lose our home.
I've made mistakes in my life like everyone else, but I've worked hard to make sure my children have everything that they need. However, I've realized that working hard doesn't always cut it, and sometimes we need to ask for help. That's why I'm humbly asking for help with our rent for the last month.
I'm asking for help for the sake of my kids. They're my entire world and as a father I have to always do my best to do right by them and asking for help right now is the right thing to do. I'm working on securing a new position in the trucking industry, but that's a few months out and I'm worried that we won't make it that long. I would be eternally grateful for this help, and my kids would be too. I promise we'll never forget the generosity and kindness we've been shown.
