Shalonda - Pink Fund recipientReceiving financial support from @thepinkfund really means so much to my family and I. It relieves the fear of my financial obligations will be met.

My greatest financial fear before I received assistance, was not being able to contribute my portion of house expenses. I am caregiver for my disabled brother who’s older than me and by not being able to contribute it would have put us in a financial bind.

The Pink Fund has helped me tremendously with paying monies toward my means of transportation. This has been a load lifted off of me being that my car is how I get my brother and I to and from the doctor and many other places we need to go. I’m so thankful for this organization. The’re some angels sent from above.

When I got the notification email that my grant had been approved, I had tears non-stop. Tears of joy. I called my sister to share the good news and they were all so happy for me, because no one but my family and the man above knew my situation. I thought maybe it was going to take a little longer. Just at the time I needed this the most – it came right on time!

I would like to thank The Pink Fund for this really big blessing.
