Military widow Of 2 Small Children

$545 of $750 goal

Raised by 17 people in 2 months

My name is Megan and last year my husband was murdered while active duty Army last year on September 24th 2016. I was six months pregnant. The military assured me that they were there to help, and helped me apply for the benefits my children and I were entitled to. I went through the remaining of my pregnancy and even birthed our son alone being as strong as possible. Here we are 15 months after my husbands death and I still have not recieved the benefits for my children. I take side jobs here and there to just try to make ends meet and I recently had a financial emergency situation when an undergound pipe burts at my house and i had to pay the plumber and the 400$ water bill. I have maybe 5$ to my name. I was hoping to give my kids a good Christmas, which is proving to be not an option, my gas is about to get turned off and I have nowhere to turn. I go to churches to get food boxes and once in a while a friend will help and buy me food with food stamps. I contemplated making this go fund me for so long because I hate to ask anyone for anything. However, I am stuck between a rock and a hard place and I figured why not. So if you could find the kindness in your heart to donate, I will forever be grateful! Thank you! Anything will help!

I am so grateful for the amazing people who have reached out to me, and ensured a good holiday season for the kids. I never thought I would have to ask for help, and to see the love and kindness in people's hearts for my situation, makes me realize there are real life angels walking amongst us. I will forever be grateful to these amazing humans for making my family's 2017 Christmas a very memorable one! In the past few days I've had outpouring support, not only with my go fund me page, but people personally reaching out and giving us food and buying the kids presents.

Life has been a roller-coaster, but I am holding on. I am doing the best I can, but since Dany was killed i have been like a lost puppy. Here I am again having to experience raising another child alone, waking up everyday knowing I am the only one these kids have, going through holidays, birthdays and special moments alone,
pushing through it day by day. If it's not one thing it's another, but I still have my head held high and I know im doing all I can.
Please hold your loved ones and tell them you love them and just be genuinely happy, because you never know how much time you have left.
Happy Holidays everyone❤
