My name is Amanda Miller Burnett. I am a 37 year old mother of 3. My husband (Michael) is a hard working man who is dedicated to providing a safe stable home for our family. He has done this on his own for the past 13-1/2 years due to my disability. This is a man that excepted my 2oldest children, and raised them as his own since the very beginning, even giving one of rhem his name at birth. To me , he is a man of men.
However, recently he informed me that he may have to send me and our girls to live with my family 1300 miles away due to his not working enough to cover all our expenses. This would be most devastating for all of us, especially for the children.
This has been especially hard for me, because I've had to watch a man that is as strong as a rock crumble before my very eyes, while trying to remain strong in the eyes of our children.
My biggest fear is that, if he does have to send us away, he may not be able to recover from feeling like a total failure to his family.
So, here I am, trying to save my family and the man that has sacrificed so much of himself for us.
Michael has designed 3 graphic images that I believe would make great t-shirts. 2 of the images are heart felt designs centered around public awareness, and the 3rd design is a punch at the sagging pants fad.
I would like to turn these images into a line of t-shirts that I can sell to help take some pressure off my husband.
My hopes are to raise enough money to;
1: Purchase the equipment and supplies to make the shirts.
2: Start a website to market the shirts via ecommerce.
3: Help pay down some of the bills that we have fallen behind on.
4: Give my husband something special for all he has done for us.
(Something that I've never been able to do)
In order for me to accomplish this, I need to raise $7500.00
I am standing before you this day pleading. Please help me save my family and the man that has filled our lives with so much love and happiness?
P.S. Please help spread the word about my fundraiser?
