To begin with, thanks for stopping by and for having an open mind in reading this.
You have happened upon on a personal fundraiser. So if the spirit moves you and you are able, please, please, please – act on it!
If you can’t help in any other way, please LIKE, FOLLOW and SHARE. Thanks.
PLEASE NOTE :The following WAS WRITTEN in April of 2013. As were FAQ 1 and FAQ 2 pages . Things have got much better since these words were written BUT we are still in the progress of recovery!
You only have my word here, but I assure you this not a scam. We are real people who have fallen on some really hard times and WE NEED HELP! There is no way to put this delicately. I’m sorry.
I guess the best place is to start with an introduction. 🙂
My name is Cheryl . I am 52 and I am married to Ron who is 59. We live in Florida and we share our modest home (a mobile home) with three cats and a dog. We bought our home right before we left a good job working in property management with the hope of slowing down, just a bit. We are not getting younger, and R in particular was having trouble with the physical demands of his position.
We didn’t expect not to be able to find jobs nor could we have imagined the freefall into poverty but that is exactly what happened.
The situation we find ourselves in is not from lack of trying.
We are nice, ordinary folks in our 50s. We have life experience and solid job skills. We have resumes that are sent out regularly. We are both creatively inclined and have talents that compliment the other. We are hardworking, dependable and resourceful. And still, we have literally fallen through the cracks somehow.
This ordeal has been absolutely horrific and it gets worse every day. I can honestly say that this has been the worst eighteen months of my life ( specifically) with no relief in sight. With the exception of our home, and it’s only through the grace of God that we still have that, we have literally lost everything else including most of our dignity.
This isn’t about NOT having anything EXTRA, this is about having NOTHING. Like not having the money to do laundry or to have our trash picked up. It has truly gotten that bad.
With that said, I bring you this blog and our story. I reaize by doing so we are making ourselves even more vulnerable to unneeded harrassment and rebuke. At the same time, I believe that there are still more good people in this world than there are bad. Besides, at this point, we really don’t feel that we have much choice but to appeal to the masses in the best way we know how.
All we can do is share our story and hopefully enlighten some, and inspire others. With any luck, we’ll even make some friends in the process. We need them too!

Thank you & God Bless …
