My need and situation
I am mother raising 3 young children. I am currently trying to empower myself in different ways in my life. My life has had a few up's and down now I'm on the right path to better myself.
My goals are to receive my GED and obtain full-time employment. I would like to have the opportunity to lead by an example for my children by demonstrating more positive behavior instead of negative.
I need 3 beds and bedding for my three children. While I'm going to school, it's tough to stretch my dollars enough to cover things like bedding, which my kids absolutely need to stay healthy and well-rested.
Meeting this need will help me because my children will finally be able to get a good night's rest in bed of their own and have the opportunity to be comfortable at night.
