It is unfortunate that we at Modest Needs can't allow unfunded applications for assistance to remain active until every one is funded. We just don't have--at least, not yet--enough donations to exceed the number of requests that come in to the site.
Each application is active for two months before it expires. Some applications are funded in just one day, some in a week, and for others it takes much longer.
Below is a list of requests for help to Modest Needs that are set to expire in just five days. Some are close the having enough points, some have none. Can any of these requests for help from people who are struggling financially become fully funded before the time is up? That power belongs to you.
