A Home For Christmas
Organized by: Justin Butler
My name is Justin. I lost my job in September and was denied unemployment. This caused us to lose our house and were forced to move in just 15 days. We lost most of our furnishings because we have nowhere to keep them. My wife works very hard but simply can't make enough money to sustain us until I find another job. My little daughter is in kindergarten and her birthday is in just a month. We have found a place to live that we can afford, but we need help to get the security deposit, the electric turned on, and also pay our back rent, as our landlord is taking us to court from when we fell behind. We lost our Christmas tree and we want to give our little girl a good birthday and Christmas. If we do not raise the funds we need to move into this home, we will be forced to lose our daughter, as the state does not see kindly on homeless children. We are trying so hard to improve our situation but we need your help to make that happen. When we get back on our feet, we hope that we can give back by starting a non profit to benefit other homeless families and help them find gainful employment and shelter.
