♥♥ Please help revive this dying Campaign ♥♥
I know many people are very skeptical about donating online, but please consider helping us today. We are a legitimate American family, with legitimate needs. Please trust us and donate.
•We need people to come back and continue to help spread the word and donate•

We are the working poor, the struggling middle-class. It's hard being caught in the middle. When times get tough, there is nowhere to turn. I am a mother of 4, with 1 grandchild who lives with me. My husband works very hard and we have tried everything in our power to remedy our situation. We have tried to get help from the government, local charities, and large corporate charities. Nobody wants to help us due to our income, which they say is just over the limit to get any assistance. Even local churches are not willing to help us out. Due to our income, we were never really in a position to put money away for emergencies, just living paycheck to paycheck most weeks. We were always one disaster away from total ruin. And now that dreaded moment is here.
We have had a bout of very bad luck and have fallen further and further into debt. We are unable to get any loans for repairs or qualify through any mortgage lenders to buy a new home due to our falling credit score. Our home is literally falling over. Half of the electrical outlets in the home are dead. Our heating bills are massive due to extremely poor insulation in the home and old windows. The windows themselves are only storm windows which have zero insulation and quarter inch gaps around them. The list of problems can go on and on... We are purchasing this property via land contract (private mortgage), and it will be paid off in 2 more years. Packing up and moving from here is not an option due to several attachments. Our only hope is to raise money and replace this crumbling mobile home with something newer. I just want a safe and warm house for my kids and grandkid to enjoy, without fear of embarrassment. I pray that my human family can help us out!
We have always been a charitable type of family. Even when times are tough we've donated part of our paychecks to the United Way, left canned goods for the postman to feed the hungry, donated to the Salvation Army, directly and indirectly, etc etc etc. Now, unfortunately, we are the ones that need a helping hand.
We are not out to deceive or scam anyone for money. The need is legit. Please help us. We are not usually the type of family to ask for handouts, but we feel that time is running out, and this is our last hope. I pray if you help us out, that your goodwill towards a stranger comes back to you 1000 fold.
Thank you for hearing our story. Please help our family get through this nightmare.
