Organized by: Sandy Harper

Let me start by telling you a little bit about my family. I am 39 been married to the same man for 18 years and a mother to 9 totally awesome kids, and an absolutely wonderful husband. My husband has a pretty good job, and we barely make ends meet. About 5 years ago we fell on some pretty hard times, and found ourselves homeless living in our van with 5 kids. It was devastating not only to my husband and I but our children. In the past 5 years we have worked our way up from nothing to living in a rented house, and driving our 20 year old van, with no air conditioning (that my not seem like a big deal but when you live in Arizona and its 117 degrees it's horrible). Our rental house is nice, but its only 1,500 sq feet, It is very cramped, and living conditions, in a small house with a family of 11 is almost unbearable. My husband are in a rut, he can't make anymore money than he already is, we live in a very small town, with very little jobs. He is a contractor, so he is traveling from town to town, and the money isn't always constant. Because of the ups and downs in our lives our credit is very poor, and no bank will lend us money or give us a mortgage., and with my husband being a contractor it is literally impossible for us to get a loan. We are really hoping to make our family live in a better environment. I would like to raise funds so that my husband and I can single handedly build our own house. We have found land, and are trying our best to make payments on it. I am looking at building a 2,000 sq. ft. house with a basement. This way it will almost double our living space. The cost of the modular pre fabricated 2 story home we are looking at with some finished interiors is $38,000, this does not include excavating, concrete and foundation work. This will give us at the very least a roof over heads. The home will not be considered completely finished, but enough for us to move in. I hope you can find it in your heart to help out my family, live in a clean comfortable environment. Thank you and God Bless! I hope you can all find it in your hearts to help my family live the American dream
