We Were Out of Work Completely for Months and Need Help Keeping Our Internet Service Please!
I'm a married mother with two young toddlers at home. My husband and I have a 2-year-old son who loves school and is very smart, and we also have a busy little 1-year-old son who is just a bundle of joy and energy. My husband is a wonderful man who works hard to provide for us, and he works full-time at a local grocery store. I was also working full-time but was furloughed when the pandemic hit, so I'm staying home to take care of our children until I can find work again.
As a two-income household, it's been difficult to get by on just my husband's income. On top of that, he was out of work for a while last year, but thankfully, he found work again at the grocery store he works at now. Under normal circumstances, we're used to being able to take care of all of our bills, but we live paycheck to paycheck, so we typically don't have a lot to put away in savings. Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, I lost my mother back in July of 2020, and it's been hard for me to deal with everything since then. Being out of work for so long has gotten us behind on our bills, and we're struggling to catch up. We've had to pick and choose what bills to pay, and we're still overwhelmed after doing that. I'm asking for help with our internet bill because it's gotten out of hand and we need help if we're going to take care of it as well as our other bills.
If we lose our service, I won't be able to keep searching for jobs and we'll fall further and further behind as a result. I'm desperately trying to get back to work, and my husband is also working hard to find a better paying job, but we need help keeping everything together in the meantime. Losing my mom has been hard because she was someone, I was always able to count on during hard times, and she was a rock for me. Getting this help would ease the stress and sense of hopelessness looming over me because it would let me know that there are still people in this world who care about my family's future. We couldn't be more grateful for this help, and we want to thank everyone who supports us in advance for your kindness and generosity.
