Meet the Ocampo Family of Tuskegee, AL.
This hard-working farm family of six, with children ages 7, 9, 14 and 15 planted 42 acres of watermelons for a giant retailer and when the time came to harvest their produce for the "low price leader", they became a "NO price loser". The mart with no heart turned their backs on the Ocampos and broke their contract stranding the Ocampos with no income for the months ahead--just tens of thousands of watermelons lying in their fields and no one to buy them. The Ocampos have no other income and no means to invest in planting next season's crops. This is their only hope to make it and keep their farm.
Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated by this humble and well-deserving family. We are looking to raise $1200 immediately for food, back to school supplies, next season's seeds, and fertilizer. Please give whatever you can to help Jose and Contrina Ocampos' family from being wiped out.
For those that want to donate but don't have a PayPal account, simply use the "buy as guest" link and use your credit or debit card. Thank you so much for all your help. All donations will be forwarded immediately to the family.
The family is forced to sell the watermelons for $1 to anyone who can come and pick them and carry them away. To get in touch with them, please contact [email protected]
