I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family extremely appreciates this more than anything in the world. It is extremely heart warming to know that there's people in this world that actually care. So often, we feel alone, and after this, my family's world is a little brighter. We just want to say thank you so much and we hope to pass it on in the future. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
I'm Pregnant & Struggling to Get Hours due to COVID! Please Help Us Keep Our Phone Service!
I'm engaged to my fiance, and we've been together for four years now. We have a wonderful 2-year-old daughter, and I'm currently 21 weeks pregnant with another daughter on the way. We're a close-knit family, and we enjoy spending times outdoors, swimming, and playing with our two dogs and two cats. I worked in manufacturing before being laid-off due to the pandemic, and my fiance works in construction but has had little work lately. Right now, I'm also in school for business management.
I managed to find a new job after losing mine in April of 202, but my hours have been significantly reduced, and I'm also going to have to take a leave of absence soon as I get closer to giving birth. Under normal circumstances, my fiance and I make a comfortable living for ourselves, but the pandemic has wrought havoc on our financial situation and has left us struggling for more than a year now. However, this is the most critical point that we've been at through the pandemic. I'm 21 weeks into a high-risk pregnancy, I have little to no hours at work, my fiance can barely find work, and our only vehicle is out of commission. We've been barely holding on, and now, we're about to collapse completely.
We desperately need help keeping our phone service, so I'm humbly asking for assistance with paying our past due phone bill. We need our phones because I won't be able to keep up with my prenatal doctor's appointments and my job, my fiance could lose his job, and we need to stay in touch with our daughter's school and my school as well. Just having this bill taken care of would be a tremendous load lifted off of us financially. We'll be able to keep our phones on and afford some much needed groceries as well. I'm confident that with this assistance my family will make it through this difficult period, and we'll be able to give our daughter and her soon-to-be-born sister a brighter future. Thank you all for your kindness and generosity in advance.
