Hi All, I want to thank you for helping me. I can not express how grateful I am that you made this happen. As I type this 100percent relying on WiFi because I have no phone service I am overwhelmed with joy knowing that I can restore this as of tomorrow. With the holidays approaching I know you could have spent your money on anything else, even helping your loved ones and instead were hand enough to help a stranger. I honestly never thought this would get fully funded but boy did you guys prove me wrong. From the smallest donation to the largest donation thank you so much for allowing this post to get the buzz that it needed. From the bottom of my heart.
I've Been Stuck in Quarantine & Need Help Getting Caught up Before We Lose Our Power Please!
I am a single mom of five children, and their ages range from 18 to 5 years old. I have four daughters and a son. They recently started school again, and they were all so excited to go back and see their friends after a difficult year away. My oldest just started his first year of college but still lives at home to save money, and my youngest just started kindergarten. My three other children are all in high school. I feel so blessed to have such a large and loving family, and I do my best to look out for them all the time.
I have always lived paycheck to paycheck and have struggled a lot to keep up with our bills when that cycle is interrupted because we don't have any outside help to rely on. My oldest got Covid-19 last month, and that hit us really hard. I had to quarantine and miss work until my whole family could test negative for the virus. Since then, our bills have stacked up quickly, and I'm really having a hard time keeping it all together. Right now, I'm worried about our phone and electric bills because we're facing shut-off to both.
Without our power or our phones, I could easily lose my job, and it would have a major impact on my children's ability to get their schoolwork done as well. We've finally been able to get out of quarantine and back to work and school, but I won't be able to catch up on these two bills in time to avoid a shut-off. We desperately need help and would be so grateful to all of the kind people who get us through this short-term hardship.
