This will probably be my last update. I really don't see the point in continuing when I can't get any one other than those who have already donated, to donate. So many people in my life want me to do for them but when I need help, they run and hide. Thanks to those who did donate, I really appreciate it :)
We're doing the little things to make the roof more sturdier, we will probably have to do it ourselves.
Have a great day, everyone :)
We still need your help. We're trying hard to get a roof put on. An amount as little as $5 is greatly appreciated.
Hope everyone's enjoying the holiday :)
We've just about have it completely surrounded with the osb board. And are about ready to start on the roof. We really need your help and or donations.
An amount as little as $5 is greatly appreciated.
So we have begun working on the house ourselves.
We're just about done enclosing it. We will probably begin working on the roof if we can not find a legitimate roofer to do it for us. Thanks for the donations and support.
So the so called general contractor walked off the job yesterday after having not done any work in about a month.
Either have to come up with 12k to get roof on or do it ourselves. Any donations would be much appreciated.
Well, I lowered the amount I am trying to raise. I hope I can reach this goal. Thanks for reading this. Have a great day, all
A picture of my brother framing up the garage area of the house. We have it now completely framed. Waiting on a roofer to get back to us with his bid offer. Please Retweet this
Been almost three weeks since my general contractor has don any work on the house. Gonna have to fire him and get a real professional.
We're supposed to begin work again today. I really hope so. I will take pics and post them here. Just hope I remember to do so. Have a great day everyone. Please retweet or like this.
The contractor has been sick with the flu this past week, promises he will get back with it next Monday.
Well, now that all the rain is gone maybe work can start again
Everyday is a struggle. Just have to take them on one day at a time and hope for the best.
No work was done today. Maybe next week after the rain leaves will we get back on schedule
I just received another $5 donation. Just would like to say to thank-you ^-^. This means so much.
I want to say Thanks to the person who donated $5 , Gotta start somewhere.
Will update with a new picture sometime today, hopefully. Trying to get others to tweet about this link is hard to nearly impossible. Sigh
Hmm, gotta try something different.
Worked on the house some today, should start the joists tomorrow. Thanks for reading this and please retweet
I think I need a new way to advertise this. This is not going like I hoped it would :(
Coming up with more ways to promote this is hard but I'll get there.
Just another shot of the progress. We haven't done much this week as our contractor is injured.
Thanks to all who take the time to read this. I know it's a long shot with the economy being what it is but I have to try.
Woke up to another beautiful morning. Thanks to anyone who is reading this and If you are able, please make a gift of $5 today to support me in this endeavor.
I am not looking forward to all of the rain they are predicting for the area.
Hope everyone in the path of the hurricane are kept safe and dry. It may be heading my way. Thanks for reading this and thank-you to those who can help me.
Would like to thank those for reading my updates and ask that you please tell your friends.
I hope everyone is having a blessed Wednesday. It's beautiful outside and there is a nice breeze.
Here is a pic of it so far. We are expecting to begin work on the roof by the end of the week.
Support a daughter in building her mother her dream home.
Three years ago, I was injured on the job. Because of the pain I experienced and still experience everyday, I am no longer able to work. I take medication for the pain daily. As a result of that, I am living at home with my mother who is taking care of me. I have no income at the moment. No disability or unemployment.
My mom has been there for me through every step of the way. I became tired of the daily non stop pain and had surgery. The pain subsided for a shot time, ( it has since came back) and I was left with a weak right knee that causes me to now have limp when I walk. She took time off from work when I had surgery, she helped nurse me back to health after the surgery and she drove to and from my doctor's office which is over 100 miles away from where we live and she drove me to and from physical therapy.
After a long battle with my former employer, I was finally compensated for the injury.
The house we live in was built by my dad over 30 years ago, and is now falling apart. I used every penny given to me to build my mom a new home. Unfortunately it wasn't enough, the money was only enough to build the skeleton of the house and possible close it in.
I have been told it will take another 20k to completely finish it. I just don't have it. My mom is working very hard to come up with the extra money but I don't want her to kill herself to do so.
I know that is a lot of money to ask for. If you are unable to give anything, I truly do understand. Thank-you for taking the time to
read this. I appreciate all the support you can give us.
Edit: I lowered the amount as I am finding it very hard to raise any donations.
