A single mom tax return message has gone viral on social media for a very special reason. Christina Knaack, a single mother from South Carolina shared a photo on Wednesday of a receipt for $5400 she spent on rent for the rest of 2017 but she did not expect that the post would go viral.
According to Christina Knaack, when she got her tax return this year, she decided to put a roof over of her family instead of buying fancy stuff for his kids.
“I got back $5600 on my taxes. Instead of buying my kids the latest Jordans or fancy electronics I paid my rent for the YEAR. I’m a single mom and I do it all buy myself on a minimum wage job. I know that a roof over my kids head is what’s important. My kids don’t want for anything because my priorities are straight. And this also means I will have that extra 450 a month to do things with my kids.”
Knacks post has already received over 90,000 shares on Facebook.
On the post, the single mother of a 4-months-old and a 2-year-old confessed that she was a recovering addict and she is celebrating 3 years of living clean.
“So I just woke up to some of the most hateful comments and some very inspiring comments and people I don’t even know defending me,” she wrote in a Facebook update. “I never expected to go viral. And as of January 3rd I celebrated 3 years clean. I didn’t share this for attention from the world. I just shared my accomplishments with people I know. I made it public so if anyone shared it others could see it in hopes a recovering addict would see it and see that life off the streets is possible and for any single moms to know it is possible to survive on your own. As long as my post has inspired people I’m happy with that.”
