Browsing through our pre-qualified applications today, I noticed a fascinating trend: an increasing number of applications coming from older people caring for their grandchildren.
On one hand, I find it incredibly admirable that grandparents are taking such an active role in their grandchildren's lives. In many cases, these caregivers are going to extraordinary lengths and rearranging their entire lives in order to support these children in the absence of their parents, or during times when their parents are struggling financially.
On the other hand, I know first-hand how challenging it can be to provide for a child -- even at a relatively young, healthy age. So I invite you to consider helping us to fund these applications from grandparents who could use your support.
As always, thanks for stopping by the Modest Needs blog. More soon - have a great weekend!
