Hello. First of all, thank you for taking time to read the man's story

I am trying to raise money for a man that i grew up with. He has spent most of his adult life working and supporting his two kids alone, but now he needs help. This is his story...

Hawley split from his ex (well, technically she left for another guy) about six years ago, the kids have lived with him for the past 4 years. He is an amazing father. The type of guy who gives all his effort, time and money for his kids. He once made his own socks by finding shirts at a thrift store's 25 cent bin, cutting the sleeves off, then sewed the cut end together, as a way to save money so his daughter could go to summer camp. He is always doing things like this just so he can, as he puts it "See the kids smile, them smiling makes it all worth it".

But now he needs help, and in Typical Hawley fashion, he wont take it from his friends. I wouldn't say he is to proud, more determined.

He lost his job a few months ago, he worked at a local small family owned factory that closed. He had some money saved, but as you can imagine, its not very much. On top of that, upon hearing of this, his ex took him back to court claiming he cant provide for his kids. Now he CAN, there wont be any extra's, but needs would be met, but he cant get the legal help he needs for sure. It is very important that he does fight in court because his ex, who only has every other weekend visits that are supervised by child protection people, is very abusive to the kids. Things like not feeding the kids for entire weekends, hitting them with a rolled up newspaper, that is covered in ducttape, forcing the kids to give her new husband foot and back rubs, some real sick stuff. and if he does not find work soon (and we all know that there is not much out there) he could lose his place and car in the near future too.

I know that i'm are not going to be able to raise enough money to cover all his needs, but every penny helps right. Even if all we get is enough to get them through ( or even have a great ) summer.

Thank you for taking the time read this! I have set up the Twitter account @AFathersLoveFF (another way I am trying to raise money is fantasy football leagues) where you can ask questions or for more info as well.

Or the email AFathersLoveFF@gmail.com has also been created for you to be able to contact for more info.

Thank you again
God Bless
