First and foremost, I would love to thank all of you for helping me in such a stressful time of need. You guys don�t understand how much this means to me. Just writing this is super hard simply because I can�t hold back the tears of joy. I am really thankful, and I will forever remember this contribution. I will be sure that when my family is back on its feet, we will return the favor. Again, again, again, thank you all so much! This means the world to me. It�s going to help tremendously.

We're a Military Family Struggling to Keep Our Daughters in Daycare, & we Need Urgent Help Please!

My Story:

I am a mother of three girls, ages 2, 3, and 4 years old. They all love being outdoors and playing in the water. I am currently pregnant with a boy which they are super excited to welcome to our family! My partner and I are both Marine Veterans. He is currently in school to become an HVAC technician and will be employed immediately after he completes his education.

I have recently become unemployed due to the company no longer needing my position. Immediately after losing my job, my car engine went out. I ended up fronting rental fees, car repair fees, and down payments that caused further strife in my family. I wasn't able to work or even look for a job until I found a new vehicle. However, a month after purchasing a used vehicle, it also stopped working. Finally, we were able to get our vehicle situation sorted out, and now we have transportation, but we used basically all of our saving and then some in order to finally find a new vehicle. As a result, we've been struggling to afford childcare for our three children, and I've already missed six job interviews while staying home to care for them because we can't afford their daycare bill. We need to get them back into daycare so that I can go back to work, so I'm seeking assistance with catching up on the daycare bill that we owe.

I am afraid that if I do not find care for them, I will not be able to find work immediately. Our bills are only growing, and on top of that we have a new baby on the way. I want to provide for my family as best I can, and I feel that this is the first step to getting back to a more stable life. With that in mind, we would be touched to receive this help, and I want to say thank you to everyone who lends us a hand with this very important bill. We will never forget this.
