Why am I asking for Donations?
This is one of the hardest letters I have ever written
in my life. I am not the type to ask for help but Over the last few years my wife
and I have been getting further and further in dept and I see no way out. I
have seen the begging going on the net but it is really hard to tell the
people that need it to the ones that are just a scam.
A little bit of history on how I got this way...
Through medical bills, legal fees, and credit cards, that should say it all.
We are at the point that every dime we make goes to the minimum monthly
payment on our credit cards which leaves us without any money to buy food,
so we wind up using the credit card to buy the food we need to survive and
if you know that is a catch 22, the balance keeps going up and it never get
paid down. I am currently getting all our info together to check out a
credit counselor but I think it is a little too late to help that way.
Why help my family?
I come from a nice family. My father worked 3 jobs to raise me and
3 sisters. We never went hungry, but we were never had the luxuries that
others have enjoyed. My mother was the hostess in the family, everyone that walked in the door always knew
they were welcomed in our household.
My parents became Mom and Dad to every kid in the neighborhood. Everyone
knew where they could go if they ever needed help or a place of peace. That
was our house. I feel that they taught that into me also. I still am the
type that goes out of my way to help others when I can. I never turn away
from someone in need and you may say that is why we are in debt helping
these people out over time. I would not change the way my life is. We have
become the Haunted House in Fairfield over the last 20+ years. Kids wait
every year to see our house change into a haunted place they can safely
visit on Trick-or-treat night. We also decorate for Xmas every year and cars
line up to see what we have done and to thank us for the display of
kindness. I have a feeling that this will be the first year in a long time
that we will not be able to decorate. Your donation will be going to a
family that cares for others as they care for their own loved ones. My wife
has worked in a retirement home and has gotten close to allot of the
residents there, and I have been at my job for over 20 years and now working
side jobs, working on computers for friends, used to be free but now I ask
them to pay for my time, and building websites for people from time to time.
That is why I still have this site up. So I can upload customer sites and
let them look at them before they pay me. That side job is drying up with
the market the way it is right now.
I will tell you what I told God a few nights back, If I
ever get out from under this debt and get extra cash back in the bank. You
have my word that any extra money will go to those who need it and we will
continue to help others the way we use to before all this mess. We still
believe in helping others even though we have no money. We can still listen
and give others someone to lean on, maybe not everything they need but it is
all we are able to do right now.
So, if you have made it this far in the letter, thank
you for listening and if you have any extra cash or know someone who can
help us then please send them to this page. If you cannot help, then that is
OK also. I truly understand the way the world is right now and it seems
everyone I know is struggling but thank you for taking the time to read this
So, to continue, press the donation button to send my
family money and we will always be grateful for your kindness.
If you would like to Donate in other ways then Paypal, Please e-mail me for my mailing address
And once again, thank you for any help you can send my way!
You will never be forgotten in my family.
