Tiffany C. from Albuquerque, NM shares an inspiring story about how Yerdle enabled her to provide for her son and help others in the process. Here’s Tiffany’s story:
“I’m a mom of a medically fragile child and I had to quit my job in 2012 to take care of my son. We live in a small studio and basically live off disability for now. Life has been challenging but I always find a way. In 2014, I found an app that looked fun and it allowed me to find items for my son for cheap.
It was fantastic for a single mommy on a super tight budget. I was able to give my son birthday presents, clothes, Christmas presents, books and everything I couldn't give him before.
I have watched Yerdle evolve into this amazing community with great people willing to help others in need. When they started the Yerdle Fund I knew I had to be a part of it. As a mom who has almost lost her only child many times, I knew the issues for families living in a hospital with their sick kids.
I applied for a Yerdle grant and with it I was able to donate a ton of toys to two local hospitals. They were very grateful and I was so happy that because of Yerdle, I could help people. For us, life has been difficult to say the least, but finding Yerdle was fantastic. Yerdle is so much more than just another app and I hope they stick around forever.”
You never know how the item you’re giving can impact a fellow member. Do you have a story or tips to help new Yerdle members?
