How is your life different than it would have been if you never received the transfer?
It has been very hard because I've been doing housekeeping during the pandemic. I've not worked since March. It is really hard when I can't give my daughter anything. I was very happy shopping with her with the cash we got. I say to her it is from GiveDirect donors - they don't know me and they don't know her but they sent us this money. I was really happy because she chose (the clothes) that she loved.
