I'm a Single Mother Finishing School, & I Need Help Keeping My Internet On Please!

My Story:

I'm a single mother, and I'm raising my 7-year-old on my own. His father isn't really in the picture, and he hasn't been supporting us lately either, so it's up to me to do my best for my son. He's my entire world, and everything that I do, all of the work that I put in, is for him. I work full-time, but after hitting a wall in terms of my career, I decided to return to school. Now, I'm finishing up my degree and am looking forward to giving my small family a bright future.

Like I said, I do work full-time, but I recently swapped my old job for a new one because it offered me a better income and more time with my son. However, it took longer than expected for me to start the new job, and so I went through a brief gap in employment. At my old job, we were living paycheck to paycheck, and after my son's father stopped paying child support, our budget got even tighter. At that time, I wasn't able to put away anything in terms of savings, so that made the gap in employment much more difficult to deal with. I had to sacrifice paying some of our bills just to keep our home. Specifically, I'm behind on our internet bill, and so I'm asking for help before our service is shut-off.

Losing our internet service would be hugely detrimental to my son and I. Without internet, I can't finish my degree, and I can't work either. With that said, I would be very grateful for this assistance and the long-term stability that it would ensure for my son and I. Thank you to everyone who helps us with our internet bill, and I promise that I will never forget the kind and generous people who allowed me to continue to work hard and finish my degree.
