Save a home, not a house!

Hello,

I'm the mother of 2 beautiful girls, who are my whole world.

I take care of my mother, and sister, as well.
We live in a simple but loving home.
I've worked hard my whole life and it now pains to me to have to ask for help from strangers.
We have run into financial difficulties since the housing crash and now have been left with an enormous sum to pay to the bank or else we will loose our home.
Mounting bills for my grandmother and a series of urgent repairs have strained our finances beyond the breaking point.

My children and I grew up in this home.
We have laughed here, played, cried, and hoped to live the rest of our lives in this home.
Now, it seems that all of that is in great jeopardy.

Just a little kindness from complete strangers will go a long way to saving a home, not just a house.

For the cost of one meal at a restaurant, you can help save a household and a family.
Any donation will be helpful.
Any amount that you can spare will be gladly accepted.

We were lucky enough to receive some help from a local group of artist's called The Inkllusionist's.
This visual arts group is giving my family one of their most celebrated paintings called "Light My Way".
They are also giving us 40 signed and numbered, museum quality, lithographs of the "Light My Way" painting Noir Edition.
These are the only prints done in the Noir series.
My family will be giving a print to 40 people who choose the LIGHT NOIR donation package.
One person will be lucky enough to get the original painting for choosing the ORIGINAL LIGHT donation package.
You can help save a home by decorating yours with one of these paintings.
We wish that there were enough prints to give to every person but, we only have the 40 prints and the 1 original painting.
We hope that everyone who reads this can help our family.

You guys are such the best! I haven't updated lately because there is nothing much to say. We will mail out thank you letters this week (working around the homework schedule, so there's that), we hope.

On the legal front, no news is supposed to be good news, and that's what we have had.

On the financial front, the important one, we got hit with the gas bill (bad, very bad) buuuuut Ginger has been going on lots of job interviews recently, so with any luck something will come of that soon. Getting a job won't, alone, be enough to dig us out of the hole, but it will sure help us from getting any further down! We're keeping our fingers crossed. If nothing else, having another employed member of the family will help us make routine payments once we pay off the back debt.

Wow, over 4k! I'm not quite sure I believe that number!

I'm sorry we haven't updated in a few days, we got the renter's notices of foreclosure in the mail a few days ago, and even though of course we knew it had to be coming and it doesn't change anything at the moment it still threw us all into a bit of a funk. Thank you all so much for continuing to help out!

Wow! If our friends can get together another $60 by Monday, we'll be at $3000! That's $5 each for 12 people. (Sorry, I've spent a lot of time lately drilling math facts into the girls!)

I did put the prints into the mailbox yesterday, but after I put them in I realized they won't be picked up until Monday. I goofed. I hope you all can forgive the delay.

As an update on the situation, looking carefully at the foreclosure notice it seems we had thirty days to respond, so, until February 6.

We have now obtained a lawyer, and she is working to delay the foreclosure until we can put together enough funds to stop it altogether.
