To dear friends, few relatives, and everyone else who has a feeling of compassion...
I created this fundraising project for those who are familiar with our situation and would like to give a hand helping us to pass thru it. Many of you have already been helping a lot thru the last year, not financially (and I never asked for it), but with the kids, around the house, the car, helping to sell gun collection, or with valuable advice. I know that many, if not most of you, have their own speed bumps in this journey called life. And that is why I have chosen to initiate this project where even little help can make a significant difference. Trust me, it was not an easy decision and even now, writing, I have a hard time doing it, but sometimes it is better to put your self-esteem and pride away. I am sorry, I did not talk to anyone (except couple of people) about it personally. I just do not feel it is a right thing to do knowing about everyone's own problems; however, I believe in us as a team.
For those who do not know our "story", it all begun several years ago with the collapse of construction business in Arizona. Our company that at its best time provided jobs for almost 100 employees had to be closed down; however, filing for bankruptcy did not do much difference, and we were forced to sell or close down our collateral businesses, basically, being left with nothing. Overall, we lost about $10M in assets during last 4 years and were left with an enormous tax debt. We had to short-sale our house, live with mother-in-law for a year, and now living in a rental. And just when we thought it could not get any worse, we had to bury our dear sister-in-law, now mother-in-law is fighting for her life, and husband that has "earned" major health issues that, if situation is not approved, can be fatal. I know many of you have been wondering why he is being out of country for so long working abroad, being so far from the family and children. And the reason is there is simply no future for us in this country anymore because of problems that have been raising after closing down our company.
I will deeply appreciate any help and sincerely wish that none of you ever experience anything even close to our situation.
I also created a Craiglist account and will post links for items I am willing to sell if anyone interested. Please, check this later as I will be updating it regularly.
