Help Family of 8 in crisis
Organized by: Stacy Nichole
I am a mother of 6. I was hurt at work, sustaining injury to my right foot. This has caused me to be in a boot, 24/7. I am unable to drive and unable to work. I have been out of work, per doctors orders. The insurance company is giving me the run around. Our bills are piling up and I have no idea when I will be able to go back to work. Until the injury, we were doing ok. School is about to start, the kids need supplies. Bills are piling, many things are needed. We are just finding it extremely impossible to keep things afloat on only his income. Both of my parents have passed and I'm an only child. Family help is just something we do not have. I am normally not one to reach out in this way, but right now, I don't have any other options. I am trying to raise just enough to keep our heads above water until I go back to work. My children do not realize what is truly going on, but they know I haven't been at work and I'm know they see we're stressed, even though we try to hide it. The other day my son said he could sell his drawings to try to raise money. He is so sweet, but I don't want to burden them with adult issues. My daughter asked if she could start a lemonade stand. I want more than anything to give them an amazing life. I was on the road to doing that when the injury happened. We are raising my four children, and his two, although in our hearts, they're all ours. We are doing this with no help from either of the children's other parents. It really is just us two, and them. We love them, and will do anything we need to to provide for them, protect them and give them the best life possible. This is just a setback. A major life changing one, but I am hoping we can come out of this closer, and stronger than ever. I did some research on crowdfunding and I noticed that there was a rewards based crowdfunding option. So, I thought, since the children were so insistent about helping, that I could offer donator rewards. Every donator will receive a thank you card from one of the children. And the option to receive email updates on our family's progress. Any donation of $50 or more will receive the previous rewards, as well as, a "special thanks recognition" in a post on my personal Facebook page, with your name, aND donation amount, if you so choose. Any donation of $100 or more, will receive the previously stated rewards, as well as, a thank you package from our family. The funds raised will go towards rent, bills, school supplies and bills accrued during the injury. This is our only hope. Thank you for taking the time to read this and God Bless all of you.
