Our fundraiser is about a family vacation, though some of you are probably laughing I ask you to read further. I had thought this year could be different for my family financially, I couldnt be further from the truth. Last year this time things were finally starting to look up for us, we were paying off our bills, we had goceries, and we were working very hard to have financial stability for 2013.
Unfortunately this all changed shortly after. Myself and my family were in a car accident as a result of negligence from the other driver. My car was completely demolished. Both my wife and myself were injured and taken off work indefinatly, fortunatly our little girl walked away uninjured. This financially devistaed us, no income meant we had nothing! We were living off friends and family assistance and the money from insurance for awhile. I forced myself to return to work through my healing process to be able to support my family as did my wife a short time after.
Now we have both returned to work we still are drowning in debt, bills have piled up with no way of catching up anytime soon. I'm not looking to have someone donate and pay off my bills however. I was just hoping for once I could take my family on a vacation. As they have never been.
Im not looking to have a large vacation in some fancy spa or anything of that sort. Just camping, swimming and some hiking accross our home provience. The reason I am asking for help with this is because we cannot afford to do this without help. I do not currently have any of the items needed for such a trip ie : Tents, Sleaping bags, Outdoor stove, ect. And My little girl has never even been camping our on a vacation, please help us give this great experience to our child.
