This ex-military family has had a very rough financial patch over the last couple of years, and we are trying to help them get back on their feet. Please consider helping if you are able - thanks very much!! More ...

First, I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has contacted me with offers to help in whatever ways they could.

The family has made it through Christmas, with the generous help of hampers and support. 

We are in the last few days of trying to help out the family.  If you are able to, my sincere thanks!

Some background:  the father is ex-military and on a medical pension, and can't work due to his injuries.  Unfortunately, when he went on medical, his wife, ironically, lost her job.  She was able to get another one a few months later, but with the loss of income, they ended up losing their house.  They are trying hard to get caught up and stay positive for their two sons, but it's been very stressful - I'm sure we all know the feeling in the pit of our stomachs when we have to try and figure out what bill to pay vs how much food to buy. 

Even if we can't reach our goal, I thank you all for your understanding, kind words, and consideration.  In the end, it takes a village to raise a family.
