Kelly Family's Emergency fund
The (extension) on the electricity bill was due two days ago, and phone service will be the next to go. I'm all out of other options, and I feel just awful about this. So, with my apologies, I humbly request your help.
We've gone almost 8 months without any regular income and we're about a month from *almost* making it, right now trying to get a little money to the landlady (who has been astonishingly patient with us, I've never, ever, had anyone be this patient with rent, but patience does have its limits).
Kurt and I have decided that once we're back on our feet we want to be just like you beautiful folks that have been so helpful to us, we're going to find ways to help other people who are going through rough times and make them feel loved, the way y'all have made us feel.
Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
