I really don't know how to put down in words how grateful I am to you & the board for selecting me for your grant.
Michael is a Vietnam Veteran whose VA benefits got a little messed up through no fault of his own. He works music gigs and sometimes has a good month and sometimes not so good. Normally his income is annualized to ensure he still gets his full VA benefits but for some reason, they looked at the month of December and reduced his income. He was unable to pay a portion of his rent which was the difference in his reduced benefits. As we know, the government agencies move slowly so although he’s appealing it, this went on for a few months. We were able to step in and pay the few hundred dollars he owes to bring him current and less stressed out about being behind. We appreciate Michael’s service to our country and were more than happy to help him get caught up! He just sent us a note:
Hello Tina, I talked with Amanda & she told me you called & gave her the “good news”!!! I’m sorry, I really don’t know how to put down in words how grateful I am to you & the board for selecting me for your grant. THANK YOU, THANK YOU !!! God bless you, the board & the awesome foundation you’ve started. Tina, I really hope you know how I feel with all my heart and soul because I just can’t express it in words at the moment. Again, thank you to EVERYONE at the foundation!!! If you would please pass this on to the board for me too, we’d appreciate it!
XOXO, Michael & Lucky
