COVID Has Put Us Through a Lot & We Need Help with Our Water Bill Please!
I'm a father of six wonderful boys and a beautiful little princess, and I'm married to my beautiful wife as well. We have a huge family, but I wouldn't trade it for the world. My 13-year-old is a sportster; my 12-year-old loves to game; my 8-year-old is as energetic as can be; my 4 and 5-year-old are my 'ruff and tuff boys,' and my daughter is a princess who keeps everyone in line. Our youngest was born on February 4th but is in the NICU due to complications with his breathing. We're excited for him to come home soon!
Prior to the pandemic, we were doing well! I was working at a golf course as the executive chef, and I was making plans to open my own restaurant soon as well. Then all of our plans were put on hold when I was out of work for four months, which wiped out our savings. Eventually, we even lost our home and were living in a hotel until I eventually got us back in to a home again. It's been an exceptionally rough few months, as my wife is also dealing with health concerns, and of course, there are also health concerns with our newborn who's in the NICU. Everything feels like it's piling up, and I'm terrified of falling behind again. I'm humbly asking for help with our water bill because it would give us the relief that we need to take care of our other bills.
I'm a hardworking man, and I take a lot of pride in being able to provide for my family, so it's taken a lot for me to ask for help. However, I know that I need to ask for help for the sake of my children now especially. I know that their futures are at stake, and we would be forever grateful for help with securing their futures. I want to end by saying 'thank you' to everyone who helps my family in our time of need. You will be making a huge difference in our lives, and we will always do our best to pay your kindness and generosity forward.
