THE STORY:

Our family is desperate! We have 3 children ages 13, 3, and 1. We have had such a struggle since moving to Arizona. My fiances grandmother was Ill and needed assistance so we moved here. I took care of her while my fiance worked. She was his only family member and I myself have none as I was raised in foster homes. In May she passed away. You can only imagine the heartbreak and turmoil that this caused within our family of 5. Since her passing things have gone horribly and unexpectedly wrong. In October our rental homes ceiling caved in from a roof leak leaving it inhabitable. The rental company never completed repairs but we did stay until December until we were wrongfully evicted. On thanksgiving day one of our 3 best friends died. Our dog named Benny. It was such a sad day and thanksgiving was more or less a bust. On Christmas we were blessed to be in a motel however that was the present for all the kids. Santa Claus was unable to visit as he/she struggle just to provided the necessities. My 3 year old keeps saying how Santa forgot about us. I know that Christmas is not about gifts but it is devastating to hear from one of your children. We currently live in out car that has a spare tire and 3 others that are bald. The transmission is failing as well. It has a heater though and thankfully for that as it is very cold sometimes. Needless to say we are at a loss. I am not sure what to do. I sit and think often about the roof collopsinh like it is our lives instead. I and my fiance def feel like failures. This wasn't by choice either. I am educated and my fiance is still working a minimum wage labor job through a temp agency. He is actually skilled to do HVAC work but has/is taking whatever he can. We need your help and it is so VErY hard to ask for. However I am hoping that great people like you can assist us on getting out of our slump so that we can have every chance yo get back onto our feet running. All donations will be used for the following (wish list more or less) and nothing else: Shelter suh as a motel Food both for dogs and us Permanent housing Toiletries Laundry Gas to vehicle Please consider helping we are great people who have fallen in rough time. Thank you
