Keeping Our Heads Above Water

Organized by: Amber Rodriguez

I hate begging so this is really hard for me to set up. Unfortunately, with the recent loss of my job along with other personal issues, our family has fallen into a deep financial hole. This is not something taken lightly. I've put a lot of thought into the idea of creating a fundraiser. Taken other people's money to pay my family's bills is hard for me. I'm the one usually handing people money and buying things for people. At this time, we are only a month behind on rent. However, our landlord is not at all understanding. He doesn't care that we are having some problems and has no interest in setting up a payment plan or accepting our payment a couple of weeks late (we would gladly pay any late fees). The local utility company has worked with us for as long as they will. If it were only my husband and myself, I would be willing to put everything in storage and live in my car, but I'm not doing that to our teenage daughter. Like most people, we have made some bad financial decisions in the past. However, since moving into this new house in February, I am proud to say that we have worked very hard to stay on a budget and thought we were getting ahead. I guess that's something that never happens when you're as behind as we have been for the past several years. Add car trouble, loss of jobs, and medical bills to those years and you end up in a hole you just can't crawl out of. If you find it in your heart to donate $1 or $2, it will be greatly appreciated. If you are not able (which I know many of you are not), just sharing this with your friends is more help than you know. I don't have prizes to award but I do have a load of affection and friendship to offer. Thank you in advance <3
