We are in dire need of funds to save our family heirlooms. They are all in a storage unit 2000 miles away. A few weeks ago, our dog Maggie got out of the fence and was hit by a car. I sped her to the vet & spent every dime we had to try to save her. Unfortunately, her injuries were too severe. Because of this, I fell behind on our payment to the unit. It includes items such as ALL of my babies pictures, letters from my Dad (he passed away in 1997), as well as the family dinner table we all sat around for 45 Thanksgivings and Christmas'. There's a piano that my mother bought for me 40 years ago. In the antique teacher desk is a valentine my Dad sent to me from Viet Nam in 1966. Mom passed in 2007 and I was blessed to get most of her belongings. It will go to auction on Tuesday January 7th if I can't raise the money. The items value far exceeds the amount owed. And sentimentally, they are priceless!
I am a single mom with a wonderful 14 year old son. He has been working odd jobs to keep us afloat. I have been searching for work to no avail. His father stopped paying child support when he lost his job. Anything you can give is greatly appreciated, and if donations exceed the $700, I will put it towards the electric bill (which is behind also). I will personally thank each & every one who donates, and will gladly "pay it forward" when I am back on my feet finacially. Please, please, PLEASE help! It is making me sick to think our whole life may end up in the hands of strangers. I have no other way and we only have a few hours left... Thank you and God bless!
