Keep a Roof Over Our Heads

$11,875 of $15,558 goal

Raised by 200 people in 52 months
I’m 29, divorced, and a mother above all other things. I spend much of my time and energy doing work for charity and have helped raise thousands of dollars for organizations like the American Cancer Society and in March, I shaved my head for St. Baldrick’s. I’m passionate about the causes I support and would drop everything to help a friend.

The past three years have been really rough. Between the car accident that left me with nerve damage in my neck and a herniated disc in my back, a severely sprained ankle that put me out of commission for six months, and now an as of yet undiagnosed neurological condition, I’ve been left without the ability to work steadily and maintain the income needed to keep a roof over my family’s head. The bank threatened foreclosure, but I was able to keep it at bay by paying a little here and there as I could and began the process of applying for a loan modification last November. After an arduous process of chasing down the correct documentation needed to fulfill the bank’s demands, they finally made a decision at the end of July to deny my request. Now I’m in real danger of losing my home that I’ve fought so hard for and only have 30 days to do it. The money from this would go towards covering the amount I’m behind on the house in order to keep a roof over my daughter’s head.

Right now, I'm having to make the uncomfortable decision of having to borrow money to make the deadline or get a new quote, which would extend the deadline by another 30 days but add even more fees to the total. Either way, this house is getting saved. Y'all have been amazing. As I've done in the past, I'll continue to do in the future: whenever anyone needs help, if I can give it, you've got it.

This website makes a deposit into my bank account daily, but the money is delayed in processing by a few days. The last deposit was on Friday and it looks like that was the money from last Tuesday. I'm assuming that realistically means tomorrow is the last day I'll be able to receive donations and have it hit the account in time. I don't know if there's any chance of raising $4,433 in 24 hours without a miracle. Thank you so much to everyone that has helped us! I'll try to update y'all in the morning. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Julie my sweet dear... in addition to any incentives you're offering, if any of my friends make a donation to you, I will write them a poem, too! I need you to keep this house so mini-me and I can visit mini-you and you! Keep your head up - I'm pretty sure we've GOT THIS THANG. :D

It's an impossible situation, and the bank doesn't care that you've done everything you can. They don't care that you took a job that you had to, not that you wanted to. They don't care that you walked to work when your car broke down. Some of us do, though. And that's why we're helping.
