Operation Save Granny's House

In 1998, my Great Grandma Jean passed away and left 2 houses to her two children to share. One in Bullhead City, AZ and one in Long Beach, CA. At the time, and prior to it, my Great Aunt was living in Bullhead and my Grandparents were living in Long Beach. A few years later, my Aunt decided to move into the spare room in Long Beach.
Now she is out of work, no longer living in the house (however, her daughter and granddaughter are still living there) and not talking to anybody in the family other than to tell my Papa that he needs to sell the house because she doesn't have any money.
This house has been in our family since 1962 and my Grandparents have lived there for 20+ years. They are at the age that should be retiring, not working their butts off to pay a new mortgage.
My Grandma works at Knott's Berry Farm and has been for over 10 years. In 2009, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and it was one of the scariest times of my life. Graciously, she beat the cancer and now lives cancer free. She was a beautiful baldy. My Grandma will do anything for anyone. And she will do anything to avoid conflict, even if it means selling her home. She has taken in many family members for various lengths of time, and even people who aren't related. She loves to cook for my friends and still sends me $5 and a card every holiday of the year.
My Papa has been my best friend since I was born. He was in the Navy for 4 years and a hero of Vietnam. After that he worked at the shipyard for 20+ years and now delivers cars. My Papa is getting old, and it scares the hell out of me. I don't know what I'd do without him in my life.
My Aunt is tormenting them and completely causing undue stress in their lives over this ordeal. She completely trashed the Bullhead house, as well as the room she was living in in Long Beach, causing property values to go down on both houses. It's completely and utterly unfair.
Some of you may be wondering why I want to give her money. I want this to end. I want her power of my Grandparents to seize. And I want to defeat evil with good.
My high goal of $80,000 is for half of the worth of the house minus money she owes my Grandparents for the house in Bullhead and a second mortgage they took out together to do some major renovations.
In honor of reaching my goal, I will do three dares with the most likes posted on the Facebook page ( ). These dares simply need to be doable in the Las Vegas or Southern California area. They will be filmed and uploaded to the YouTube page ( ).
The twitter account will stay updated with any in real life events we do!
