I have been a mama for nearly 19 years.  Before that time I had been in full time work, often holding down 3 jobs to make ends meet.  When I became a mama I knew that I wanted to do what I believe to be the most important job in the world - a 24/7 mama to my children. 

Even though my wonderful husband has worked oh so hard in full time employment, including 10 years on the night shift, we have struggled and have had many years of scrimping here and trying to save a few pennies there.  In our 19 years of marriage we haven't had a holiday or been able to afford a decent car, we rarely have luxuries or treats.  We don't smoke, we don't drink, all our money is put towards keepig the roof over our heads, paying the bills and food.  I have decided enough is enough, my children deserve better than just existing on the bare necessities.   

With this at the forefront of my mind I am setting up my own business and am willing to do whatever it takes to make it work - including putting out the begging bowl to get it off to a decent financial footing.   

I am going to scrub toilets for a living - well not just toilets, I'm going to clean homes.  I am going to offer a comprehensive cleaning and pet care service, offering unique services like 'help a mama' where a new mama is taken care of in those important first days of bonding.  I am not afraid of hard work and I have many years of cleaning experience behind me.  I believe I am good with people and have the necessary skills to make this work.  

If I am fortunate enough to raise any money through this campaign it will be put towards equipment and the basic necessities, as well as the all important marketing and advertising.  I need a nice (but cheap!) suit for making initial contact with my clients and for networking situations - I haven't worn anything like that since having a baby!  I don't even own a smart pair of shoes.   

If you can spare any amount, no matter how small you think it is, believe me when I say it will mean the world to me.
