The Story

We - my husband, two little boys and I - moved into a house with family in an attempt to save money and get on our feet. Unfortunately that was a bad move. Without pointing fingers, let's just say that we're worse off than we were a year ago, if anything. 

There is a slim chance that we will be able to stay in the beautiful house we've been renting. Any donations will go towards housing costs. We are looking for someplace cheap so that we can save money and avoid having to ask for help ever again. 

My husband is on dialysis, and on the transplant list. That's enough to worry about. Our youngest just turned 4 and we weren't even able to host a birthday party for him.  I take responsibility for my own mistakes but I have been working and networking with all I've got and have not been able to dig us out. 

My goal is to make this the very last time we have to ask for help. I am rebuilding my business so that we should be OK, once we are out of this hole. I hope to get us moved, pay off a few debts, and finally be self-sufficient again. I also promise to pay it forward and help as many people as I can. No one should have to worry about keeping a roof over their family's heads.

Fundraiser Updates

We just found out that we may be able to stay here a bit longer (!), but only if we can pull some more money together FAST. The good news is that if we pull this off, we should be good to go!  This looks like the last hurdle to getting where we want to be.  

Updating to say that any donations may first go towards paying rent to stay HERE for another month. We are still planning to downsize into something cheaper ASAP, but this will give us time to do that right and find the ideal spot for us to relocate. 

I also updated my $150 Website Special page - Get a complete website + lots of extras, for just $150!  Offer ends soon!
