We are a family of 8 living in rural Ohio. Having 6 kids is a challenge most of the time and we are usually just making it paycheck to paycheck. We ended up getting a special deal on the property where we live, where upkeep of the lawn is part of our rent. This makes it possible for us to live in a bigger house than we can actually afford. This has been quite a blessing for us. Unfortunately, however, the lawn mower that we were using recently threw a rod, and we are stuck mowing 2 acres with a small electric push mower. It basically takes us all week, or more than a week, to get the entire lawn done. Because of this we're constantly out mowing, and the mower breaks down or stops often. We really need a riding mower, but have no way of paying for one ourselves. I set the funding goal low enough to get a used mower, but additional funding would be welcomed if it would be possible to help us get something new.
