I would like to thank each and everyone who took the time to help support me this has been a blessing to see the kindness and empathy being expressed by so many people. This help means a lot to me and knowing that it will help me to be successful I'm grateful. I look forward to the day that I can pay it forward.

I'm Back to Working as a Teacher, but I Need Help If I'm Going to Keep My Job!

My Story:

I'm a single woman, and I live on my own. I was working as a childcare provider for 12 years before the pandemic. I was laid-off shortly after it began, and I've only just recently gotten back to work. I managed to find another job as a teacher, and so far, I really love it a lot. I'm used to working with children, and my greatest passion in life is to guide our youth to live successful and fulfilling lives, and I feel like I'm able to do that at this job.

Even though I'm back to work and have been able to manage my most critical bills, I'm having trouble catching up on some of my smaller, yet still important, utility bills. Specifically, I'm behind on my power bill and my internet bill, and I really can't afford to have either of them shut-off due to working from home, so I really need help catching up on those before it's too late.

I worked hard to come back from this pandemic, but I'm worried that if I lose my power and internet service, then I'll lose my job. That would be devastating, and it would be incredibly hard to climb out of losing two jobs in the span of a year. Getting these two bills taken care of will not only have me caught up on all my obligations, but it would also keep me employed and will allow me to continue to build a stable financial future. For that, I want to thank everyone who helps me during this tough time for your generosity and kindness. I will pay this forward by working hard every single day on behalf of the children that I teach.
