When someone who applies for help through Modest Needs has an application funded fully, he or she writes a "thank you note," a testimonial upon completion. And those thank yous are always moving, but this one stuck out to me as a shining example of how lives are changed when you donate to Modest Needs.
Here is one testimonial in its entirety:
I don't know how to even begin this testimonial of my gratitude and heart felt thanks for your willingness to help me in my time of need. I had to compose myself before I could write this because I broke down in tears of joy. I'm just so overwhelmed! Times are rough and I know that each and every one of you had to sacrifice something to help me, it's so incredible! It has inspired me to donate to someone in need too.It may not be much to start,but it will come from the heart and every little bit helps. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own situation that we forget there are others out there who are worse off than we are. But God has a way of opening our eyes and you all are a God send. God bless each and every one of you for your generous donations and for really caring about those in need,your all so wonderful. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. With heart felt appreciation, Janet M.
It's important to be reminded of how much good you do when you give.
