Family in need.

Good day and thank you for taking the time to listen to my story. I'm trying to raise money for my family. My father has been a volunteer for charity work, trauma counselling as well as a number of no reward endeavours. Helping others he's always told me is a greater reward then anything money can buy, what very few people know is the strain and financial struggle it's causes our family. When I was in school I couldn't finish because we didn't have money for food some nights and it was hard because my mom was the only one achieving a income just to keep a roof over our heads and because of this they literally don't have anything especially after they were robbed a in the middle of 2015. I grew up in a home where we didn't have much but scrapped by and somehow they always managed to give even though they had almost nothing. Recently I heard that my mom's only got work until September 2016 then she'll be 65 years old and they don't have enough to retire or replace anything that was stolen and I am unemployed due to lack of qualifications. So the situation is desperate and I know their are good people who do good things. I would like to give them something back to help them as they have always helped others and strangers around them no matter what. Any donations will greatly help and the money will be split into 3 categorys. 1 will be to replace a few things they had stolen and the rest will be going into a investment fund for their retirement and the rest is to pay off debt they'll never get out. If I can get enough for jut 2 of those things it'll be more helpful then you realise but ideally I'd like to get my mom who has worked all her life in a place where she doesn't have to worry about food or a living place. If you want to know more feel free to contact me. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
