My Family Needs Your Help

$5,910 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 98 people in 10 months
Hi! As you may have heard, I was the victim of a hate crime on Thursday night/Friday morning. My beloved Dolly (bright blue Kia) that I use to cart my kids around and make funny videos had the seats slashed. Also someone carved vicious slurs into the paint. I am working with local law enforcement and my insurance company. However, as I stretch my salary to provide for my kids, this horror was not planned for. I am respectfully setting up this Go Fund Me campaign to pay for getting my future transportation needs met as well as security equipment around my house. Any money raised will be used appropriately and focused on the kids. I’m a single income father of two wonderful boys I’ve been blessed to adopt. Both of which were my great nephews turned sons! My youngest was adopted in 2015 and the oldest in 2017. Since going through a divorce early 2017 I’ve raised both boys with co parenting time here and there. It has not been easy, especially the last 18 months since divorce but I like to think I’ve done my best to get us by. This has unsettled me and I’m not sure what the future holds besides more love, forgiveness and passion. Myself and boys would be forever indebted for the help. Someway, somehow the kindness extended will be paid forward. Thank you https://www.facebook.com/100007434812864/posts/2107150669542740/

There’s a lot of amazing things that have occurred since negativity and hate struck us.

I’ve been actively seeking a different place to rent, mostly to have the boys get that feeling of security back. However I wanted to try and buy my/our very first home.

Monday I applied for a USDA loan. Tuesday I received a pre qualification letter. Some good mojo is surrounding us! I didn’t think that would happen. Today I made an offer on something that could be ours. Puts us closer to school, closer to family, and hopefully closer to that feeling of security. This is the start of a long process and I don’t want to get my hopes up, but my heart tells me to do what needs to be done for the boys.

Thanks to all the support we’ve raised enough to purchase the car I’ve been driving to work and to cover taxes on said car. By the end of August, first of September the car will be available for us to get title.

I’ve left the go fund me up as to help with any buffer that we may need in this “our home” process.

I will continue to be transparent as possible and to keep leading my boys with love. Again thank you all for everything you’ve done for my little family and what you continue to do.

Michael, Blake, Clayton

Please share!

Insurance and GAP coverage have sent in settlements. I’ve sent in the remaining balance of $750. May get some of that back in the coming weeks.

I have an option to buy a used vehicle and our campaign will cover that cost.

Awaiting to see if lead given to detective pans out.

Thank you all for the words and shares! It’s very nice to know there are so many good people around us!
