User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeTo the donors who helped support me with this expense-- I cannot tell you how much it means to receive this gift. It is tremendously hard to make ends meet as a widowed mom of two. I spend many nights wondering how I will continue to provide, and I work extra hard to give my wonderful children as normal a life as they will ever have. Still, life brings unexpected challenges. Your generosity gives me faith that we will endure, and that help is never too far away. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. -Jessie

I'm a Widowed Mom of a Boy & Girl. After Being Forced to Replace My Tires, We'll Lose WiFi!

My Story:

I am a widowed mother of two amazing kids. My son is 12 and loves playing basketball and video games. My 4-year-old daughter loves anything pink, sparkly, and princess-y. We have a dog and 3 fantastic cats. I work full-time as a project coordinator in healthcare research and am the sole provider for my family. I work hard every day to fill their needs and give them a safe home. I would do anything for those two.

Even though I get paid somewhat well as a project coordinator, I have had to start taking on food deliveries just to make sure everything gets paid. Last weekend, TWO of the tires on my car went flat. They all had significant wear and needed replacing, and I was not positioned well for this expense at all. This is the only vehicle for my family, so I had no choice but to replace the tires. The money I spent on the car repair could have gone toward my rent, mounting utility bills, and other bills that are now getting out of hand. This has put me behind on several bills and I am worried about the implications if I don't get relief somehow.

I am humbly requesting assistance with my internet bill. This help would be one less thing I have to worry about and ensure that this unexpected expense does not lead to us being without connection at home. This will also prevent me from incurring late fees. Thank you so much for anything you can give.
