Organized by: Portia Reid

My name is Portia Reid and I am trying to foster my nephews Spencer and Carl. My sister Mercedes Vickers got addicted to a powerful drug meth. She has a 2 year old and 8 month old that lost thier mother to drugs. She is now in jail and mentally ill. Im one of the only blood relatives that can take them. I have room for one but I dont want to separate them. Im trying to raise money for a deposit on a new place with an extra bedroom and to trade my car in for something bigger. I have 2 kids ages 6 and 7 and my car seats 5. I have already got sone baby stuff but Im starting with nothing. My main goal is to find a 3 bedroom in Tampa for my fiance and I and the 4 kids. If I get them I expect to have them for a while if not forever. I hate to ask for donations but I know I can give these kids the love they need and support them if I can just get a bigger place and car. Both are in diapers and they still have a chance at a good life. I know people make things up so you can look up Mercedes Vickers and see she is in sarasota country jail and you can contact the social worker by emailing me at I'm looking for a 2nd job and doing everything I can and anything you donate will go to support Carl and Spencer. Thanks for your time and have a good day!
