This person has left the following thank you note:
This past year has been a challenging one for all of us-- which is why your support is so meaningful to me and my family. In the midst of a pandemic, I had to move my children outside of the only home they have ever known, because of how difficult it had become to stay. We were fortunate to have family take us in, and eventually we moved into a new place. It has been a struggle to make ends meet ever since, as their father isn't providing financial support. As a newly single mom, operating on a single income, and living in a part of the country where the cost of living is quite high, I have stayed awake many nights wondering how I will make it all work. Here's where you came in. You are making it easier for me to sleep at night. You're helping me breathe a little easier knowing that this bill will be taken care of. You are helping me put food on the table and provide my children with a life closer to what they truly deserve-- which is the world, in my eyes. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity. Please know that when I find myself in a stronger position, and I know that one day I will, I intend to pay it forward, keeping in mind how I was given help when I needed it most. You're kindness is seen and felt and I truly cannot express, in words, my gratitude. Thank you.
I Need Help Keeping My Car Insurance After Leaving a Bad Marriage with My Kids!
I am a newly single mom of two incredible kids-- a 9 year old boy who plays soccer and loves Roblox, and a 19-month old little girl who is full of joy and energy and loves to cuddle. I work full-time and receive no child support. I had to leave an incredibly difficult situation and get out with the kids on my own, and this has been an incredibly difficult challenge to say the least. I have almost no family (my parents are deceased), and my little family means the world to me, so at the end of the day, I just want to make sure they're happy and taken care of.
Since becoming a single mom, I've received no financial support from my former spouse, and after leaving, I had to get into an apartment and furnish it completely and start from scratch. This was a huge endeavor, both financially and emotionally. On top of that, I have student loan debt and am liable for tax debt associated with my former spouse as well. We're in a difficult position financially to say the least, and we also live paycheck to paycheck, which makes managing expense that much more difficult. Right now, I'm worried about being able to keep hold of my car insurance because I need it to get to work every single day, and I can't afford to pay it and our other bills. I'm humbly asking for help with paying my car insurance for this month.
This will certainly help me get a handle on some other expenses in my life, which aren't going anywhere. I'll be able to keep my car insurance and will be in a better position to face other expenses as well. We won't have to struggle as much with affording groceries and things like that if we can get this bill taken care of, which would be a huge relief. I know we're struggling now, but I also know that this help would be huge for us and that we would be so thankful for this help. We will never forget the people who help us make it through this difficult time in our lives.
