Can't find work, but the rent is due!

So let's skip the sob story and move right to the meat of the matter...

I have been applying for jobs since last Thanksgiving with no luck... the corp jobs go to other candidates or get cancelled, the low end jobs all say I am overqualified. Either way...

The rent is due. We're teetering on the edge of losing our family vehicle. We're nearly out of dog food, gas and groceries. And even if a recruiter were to call me with an awesome job opportunity I don't have any clothes appropriate for the work I do. The light bill is 6 months past due.

We are in a world of hurt. My daughter (in the picture, ain't she awesome?) doesn't deserve to suffer because her dad can't figure out how to get out of this mess...

 I'm starting to come unglued with the stress of needing to get work, pay the bills and feed my family.

I just need some help to get the pressure off for a bit and get this stuff worked out. Please, help if you can... and if you can't pass the message along?

Thank you!

So... we've covered the rent! w00t!

Everyone has been so generous, we just may make it out of this mess yet. I was so discouraged the last few days and you have all restored my faith in humanity and for our future.

We're getting closer to our goal than I could have ever imagined... I didn't think this was going to go anywhere. You all have proved me wrong.

So thank you.

Thank you to everyone who has donated. It isn't easy to step up and ask for help like this, so your generosity is beyond appreciated. Thank you.

Please remember to share this on your timeline/feed/whatevs... the more people who see it the more likely we are to make our goal.

Thank you, so much...
