I apologize for not posting an update for a while.  The hits just keep coming for my daughter and her family.  Sadly my daughter lost the baby.  See More

THE STORY:

I am trying to raise the funds to help my daughter and her family. She recently got married and her new family consists of her, her husband, her 3-year-old son and his two small children from a previous marriage. Her car has been without heat for quite a while and tonight, it died all together. We had a mechanic look at it and the engine is a gonner and would cost more to repair than the car is worth.  The repairs are going to be $1500 and this a 2004 Suzuki Aerio. 

My daughter was getting up every morning, bundling up the kids in blankets, dropping her husband off at work, driving her son to his day care and then taking the other two boys to their daycare. Then after working all day, she would get back in the car and do it all over again in reverse.  She never complained.  She was just doing what had to be done for her family.  And I am very proud of her. 

They are a struggling new family and are just trying to get on their feet and have no money for repairs, much less a new car. I would go buy them a car right now if I could. I'm hoping to raise enough money to get them a car that will get them around. Nothing fancy, just reliable.

We have all been there; just starting out, trying to make ends meet with small children. Without a car, there is no way to get them all where they need to be every day. They are hardworking people who just need some help.

 

UPDATE:  We have not been successful in raising enough to get them a replacement car.  We are now shooting for replacing the engine.  That will still cost $2500.  Hopefully this is a bit more doable.  Thank you for those who have donated and if you haven't, please help!
