Checklist first, and our story to follow.
1) Needing a reliable family vehicle (or money to fix existing van)
2) New well water pump (without it we could lose literally everything)
3) Basic miscellaneous necessities. (clothes, food, utilities)

West Virginia is the place we call home. My oldest is 11 and my 2nd child is turning 2 this summer. We have quite a predicament, and in this economy it is simply understandable. We don't pay for cable or have a t.v., our vehicle looks like it was pieced together like Frankenstein. Maybe you could call us the stereotypical WV hillbillies. It is just time to get transportation seriously taken care of. I was just released from the hospital, and it wasn't our vehicle to take me. Our dear neighbor was home for this emergency, I was placed in ICU for 3 days. This is unacceptable, my children need more than this. I have a chronic condition that requires medical supervision, and that condition landed me in that hospital a few days ago. My oldest, was born permanently physically and mentally disabled, & he lives with a life threatening disease called mastocytosis. He cannot walk far, sometimes he collapses because his knees are crippled. I would be forever thankful if someone could help us get that vehicle we need for those "just in case moments." What would have happened if our neighbor was not home? Not is it only important for those reasons, but for the simple things most people take for granted. Just to take off and go to the store when you need something. We live on a farm out away from what most people would say jokingly...civilization. We don't even get our mail delivered we are so rural. A PO Box is required. Second is that water pump for our well. It overheats after 15-25 min. of use. It gives us drink, it bathes us, washes our clothes, it's for sewage, everything. It keeps our garden alive to help us eat, our farm animals healthy and clean. Without it, we would lose our home surely, everything that we know. One day it will have to be replaced, and soon.
As for us, we are the working poor, we get SNAP and disability to help us survive. We have gotten everything we own from yard sales, and community thrift stores. Second hand. I am thankful for all I have, we just need some help up to keep from falling. Thank you for reading, & if you cannot donate, a prayer will do just fine!
