Modest Needs
http://www.modestneeds.org/
In March 2002, Modest Needs was founded by Keith Taylor, who created Modest Needs as his way of repaying the many small kindnesses that others had shown to him. On the original site, he pledged to give away 10% of his gross monthly income as a teacher - $350.00 - to help people with small, unexpected expenses and nowhere else to turn, no questions asked. He raised the money to honor his pledge by selling most of what he owned. Taylor expected that people would ask for help. But he had no idea that so many others would write to say, "My life was also touched by kindness. How can I be a part of what you're doing?" Today at Modest Needs, compassionate persons whose lives have been touched by kindness pass that kindness on by pooling just a bit of what we can afford to share and using those funds to keep struggling families from entering the cycle of poverty. We do this by helping as many persons as we can to afford unexpected expenses like those we've all encountered before - expenses which, though small, can easily force a family over the edge and onto the street. And we never ask for anything in return.
Modes Needs assists working families, many earning to much to qualify for government assistance, but not enough to shield them from financial struggles. The goal is to keep people from slipping into poverty. The maximum grant is $1000.
