Hi there, I'm Adam, husband of Jade, father of Alaria and Ileanna. I'm reaching out to you today because we're in a dark place, unforgiving and cold. We need help to keep the last of what remains of our life safe and working. Why should you help us, when so many are in need? Because in spite of everything, Alaria smiles.

Alaria always smiles, she always plays, she always dances and slides and runs. She's what keeps us going, even when so many things have gone so wrong. We're a family of three, but we used to be a family of four. Alaria's sister, Ileanna, is our Star, our shining light of love, but her light burned too brightly for this world. She left us behind last year, going where we cannot follow and setting into motion a chain of events that drained our savings, wrecked our credit, and left us in the position we are right now- living in a Salvation Army shelter for homeless families.

We've been on the hunt for employment, and Jade will be starting a new job tomorrow (yay!), but it will be too little, too late for our storage unit (that has all of our worldly belongings and most importantly the last few remnants of Ileanna) and our cell phones. Our cell provider and storage company have been both patient and kind, but both have reached the end of their ability to wait. Please help us, however you may be able, with those two bills. Once Jade earns her first paycheck we'll be able to stand on our own, but until then we can't afford to lose the vital link to the world that our phones provide. The loss of the last few momentos of our little girl is too crushing a blow to consider. 

The storage unit requires $144.95 until October 6, then an additional $50 fee will be added. Our cell provider requires a payment of $241.70 by October 10th to keep our service on, but the full bill amount is $797.53. Jade will be starting a job tomorrow and I'm deep in the hunt, looking for something to start as soon as I can arrange child care for Alaria. Please help us, we appreciate anything you can do. Thank you!
