Sort of a long story but here goes....I have been in recovery from Alcohol and drug addiction for nearly 5 years. I spent a majority of my life battling many issues that led to my use and abuse of substances. During this period i had 3 children. They are the LOVE of my life! It has been very difficult for me to support them for several reasons. I have had a hard time keeping a job, my education level is 8th grade. I am constantly overwhelmed with parenting. I have major stress and anxiety on a daily basis. etc etc. ALL i want is to provide them with a better life, more opportunities. Sports, vacations, better clothing, fun things to do. We have no vehicle nor can i afford to get my license back at this time. I have completed tthe requirements of the DMV to get my license back however, i cant afford it. I get no financial support from the kids Mom ever...she does not make very much and recently quit her job. My children all do very well in school. 2 out of 3 of them had honor roll last school year!!! My daughter recieved a prestigous award at her 8th grade graduation this June. I am so very proud of all of them. I have started a small business that has become fairly succesful in the last year. It is limited due to my inability to save. It could be so much more if i had capitol. Every penny i earn goes right out to pay bills that are always late. Disconnection notices are very common. Eviction notices are almost monthly. I have held it together now as a single Dad for several years in this situation. I must do something now! I am asking for your help. Please.... even a little goes a long way. My goal is this.
1. Continue to stay clean and sober
2. Continue to be the BEST Dad i can possibly be by providing for my kids in the best way possible.
3. Continue to work hard at my business in hopes it will support us in the future.
4. Get my drivers license and a vehicle.
5. Get my high school diploma
6. Go to college.
With your help, all these dreams can come true. Its ALL about the kids. This is not aboout me having money to spend. This is to provide for my kids what they so deserve. They have already had a very difficult life. I want to give them everything. I dont want them to feel left out or "poor" anymore. Its not fair to them that I made mistakes and had problems. I pray every day for financial blessings. I have been blessed with my small business. I have been blessed in many other ways. I now pray for you to help. Any amount is great! I intend to start a blog with pictures and show exactly what your money is doing for my children. PLEASE HELP This fund raiser could change there lives. I thank each and every one of you in advance.
