Helping Single Dad's Raise Families
Organized by: James Martin
I am raising money for single fathers, and there children. There are plenty of programs, and charities that support and help single mom's, or abused mothers, etc, etc.. on the other hand there aren't many for single fathers. See I came to A hard point in my life, as a single father with four daughter's, trying to raise them all on my own with little to no help from there MOTHERS, working 50 and 60 hrs a week making minimum wages with no overtime paid,it was just not enough. Every where I turned to there was nothing to help a single father. Now I wasn't looking for someone to do it all for me, I just needed a little boost, but there was nothing, I couldn't get cash assistance from the government, the little I was making they said was too much,but yet it didn't add up to paying the bills, let alone, food,clothing, medical, etc, etc... I told myself if I ever got out of this situation,and got back on my feet,not even being rich,just good enough to help myself then I was going to do whatever I could to help other single fathers.. so now today I'm here trying to raise money for that exact cause. I want to be able to assist the single father's and there children all the way across the board. I want to be able to help with shelter,food, clothing,school supplies, diapers,bottles, formula, cereal, beds,cribs, furniture, toys, electronics,even housing and vehicles. Bus passes,jobs, parenting classes, and.money management help. I want to make a way to help them make a way. There aren't enough Men involved in the children's lives as there is, so it's time we help those FATHERS who are there and trying there hardest to do for there kids,but there hardest just isn't good enough, because life's problems are / have taking toll.
