I'm in desperate need of money to save my house after a failed business attempt. Me and my wife have been unemployed for over a year and we decided to venture into the business world, because our savings were diminishing by the day and a chance of employment didn't seem likely. We decided to take out a mortgage on our house and start our own business.
Since we were both into fishing, we opened a little store with fishing equipment. It hitted off at first, everything was going OK, we were paying back our loan. But business soon came to a halt. Long story short, we had to soon close our shop because a larger chain of hardware stores opened nearby that forced us out of business.
Now we are faced with a debt of over $50.000,00, and the bank will soon be closing in on our home. I try to get as much part time work as I can, but the situation in my town is horrible. Each night we assure our 10 year old twin boys that everything will be fine each night before they go to bed, but things are getting bad quickly. I'm afraid that soon we won't have enough money for food and the bank loan. I don't know what to do anymore. We have no one to turn to. Me and my wife are working so much that we are completely exhausted.
I haven't told my wife that I'm begging for money online at this point because it's humiliating that I can't provide for my family. But I don't seem to have any other options. I'd rather swallow my pride than to see my kids and my wonderful wife go hungry. I thank you for whatever you can give to help us, friend.
P.S. at the time of writing this it's August 28, 2012. I'll keep everyone updated on how the donations are coming along.
