This may look selfish, but it really is not. I am doing this for my family. I have a very long history of bad luck, I am writing a book about it, that seems to keep going and going. That said, I am starting this fund raiser to ensure that my family does not loose the home that they love. It is not much, been in this home for 11 years, have not been able to put a yard in for the kids to play and the concrete is garbage. With all of that, my family loves this home and we do what we can when we can.
In November I became unemployed, unexpectedly, and have not been able to recover to this point. It seems that the harder I try the farther I keep getting behind. I am applying to everything and anything that I can in hopes of landing a job, would preffer a career, to better take care of my family. My wife works all she can and do some odd things here and there to try and contribute anything I can. I have a daughter in college and I am unable to help her at all, very frustrating, and she is now planning on a mission come June.
I have another daughter in high school with two more children in grade school. Our only vehicle is broke down and we have a wonderful neighbor that is letting us borrow one of their extra vehicle until we can afford to get ours fixed.
I hope people read this for what it is, please do not judge me, I went to college, earned 2 degrees, work hard and try to improve every day. For whatever reason, life is handing me this challenge and so far I am loosing. I put an amount needed only because it wanted one, but truely, ANY would help.
I am 3 months due on my house, cell bill that is hefty because I turned them off but now have to pay the early termination fees, tv bill again hefty because I turned off but have early termination fees, some doctor bills and the usual utilities along with a disabled vehicle. Yes we have had some extras, phones and tv, but we did not plan on having this happen at the time.
Again, I hope this is understood for what I mean it to be.
Thanks for any and all help.
