“My name is Yvonne and I’m 72 years old. I’ve spent the last year of my life battling cancer. During this process I’ve been standing in faith for God’s healing and provision for my life. I’m in the process of moving from Tennessee to North Carolina to get better treatment at the Duke University Hospital. In recent weeks, I’ve been trying to get my house ready for sale. As you can imagine, there’s a thousand and one things on my “To Do” list and even more on the home inspector’s list. Some things I’ve been able to do myself, but other jobs I just haven’t been able to do on my own. 

One job in particular, involved removing my antique Tiffany lamp from above my kitchen table. I had someone give me an estimate on how much it would cost to remove my Tiffany lamp, and replace it with a new light fixture, and they quoted me $300! I was worried I’d have to leave my antique lamp. 

Then a dear friend told me about Second Helping and their collaboration with Takl, the on-demand home services app.

I filled out the Second Helping application, and once I was approved and received my “code” I was able to order the Takl job that day! The Takl Provider explained the work that needed to be done, and did a fantastic job! Now, I’m able to take my lamp to North Carolina and enjoy it in my new home!

Since that job went so well, I’ve continued to use Takl to do other jobs that were on the buyer’s home inspector’s list. Takl is wonderful! It’s quick! You can either order the job that day, or schedule it for another day. The Takl Providers that have come to my house to do the work were reliable and completed the jobs with excellence! I’ll continue to use Takl even after I move! 

Thank you Second Helping. Thank you Takl. And thank you to everyone who’s donated to make this possible. This seemingly small job, truly has made a big difference in my life. Thank you.”
