I'm a Single Mother Doing My Best, but After Our Car Broke Down I Need Help Catching Up!

My Story:

After my eldest son's father passed away, I'm raising my three children on completely on my own as a single mother and without any support. My oldest son is about to graduate high school, and my youngest two are still in diapers. I'm very proud to be a mother but being on my own and raising my children without support has been difficult, at least financially speaking.

I work full-time, but most of the time I find myself getting us by from paycheck to paycheck, and I rarely have anything to put away for an emergency fund. Lately, it feels like me and the children have been living from crisis to crisis, and it's like we're being backed further and further into a corner that we can't get out of. A new bill comes in, and then suddenly my son needs a new pair of shoes because his have holes in them, or I need to restock diapers for my two youngest. Those are typically smaller expenses that I can deal with, and on occasion, I might come up late on one bill or another because of it, but at least I can still manage it. However, it's the large, unexpected expenses that really hurt us financially.

Recently, the engine in my car went out, and I had to get it replaced immediately because I need my car to get my two youngest to daycare, to get my son to school, and to get myself to work. Even though I was able to get the repairs done quickly, I still missed some work. Now, after paying for those repairs, I'm behind on almost all of our smaller bills, and I desperately need help if we're going to catch up. Specifically, I'm behind on my car insurance, my phone bill, and my internet bill. Losing my insurance would put us one accident away from a disaster and losing my phone or internet service would very likely cost me my job and hurt my son's ability to keep up with his schoolwork. With that said, I would be very grateful for this assistance with these three bills. Your generosity would put me and my children one step closer towards getting back on track again.
