Help Andreas and Mary Ellen

$8,200 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 76 people in 21 months
Andreas and Mary Ellen need your help. They have provided amazing holistic food for Edmonton & Calgary markets and restaurants for 18 years.
This spring their investor took over their business while Andreas was recovering from open heart surgery, using their staff and neighbors to execute. 
The investor was to rent the farm with an agreement to purchase it. The agreement was broken suddenly leaving the farm ransacked and tens of thousands of dollars of equipment and anything not nailed down removed.
Andreas and Mary Ellen, who built a unique farm business from scratch, are in threat of losing everything, having no income at this time. They are living in an apartment in Calgary and need to move back to the farm, clean up the mess,  sell the farm and secure jobs. Please help them to get through this trying time before everything is lost.
1) They need your help to get the word out to your   contacts. Please repost through your networks.
2) Please contribute if you are able to. Even small amounts can add up.
3) Please contribute by December 31 if possible.
4) The goal is to raise $20,000 before they lose the equity in their farm, which is all they have left.
5) They need help with renting or borrowing a vehicle to move furniture back to the farm and help lifting.

Hello to All,
Good news, Andreas is meeting about a job offer tomorrow as I interview for a job. Phew!
Hopefully, both go well and we are working in March.
This has been a long arduous journey for us, yet we are truly blessed.
Asking for your help has been one of the most difficult things we've had to do. We were always the givers.
We are so thankful for your help. Yet, again, we must ask for your assistance. We were short on mid month bills, have end of February and mid March bills to pay. Mortgage, insurance, phone and internet, groceries and utilities. Our gas bill was scary this month and we did not expect it to be so high as all is turned off at the farm, except the house. Gas people came out and found that we have a gas leak somewhere in the line going to the barns. This bill must get paid and the line fixed. First we need to pay for someone to find out where the line is broke and why as it's on our property and not the county's.
We need about $5000 to get to the point of end of March at which point we expect paychecks.
Please can you help and let your network know that we need help for the last time.
Wishing you all the best as karma visits,
Mary Ellen and Andreas

Farm clean-up day and potluck postponed to insure we are ready for realtor pictures on Monday.
Had 2 interviews this week and Mary Ellen found out about possibilities, but it looks like no one is hiring until March.
This means we have mid and end of month payments to deal with. If you could please pass this campaign around we have no other means at this time.

Sincerely,
Andreas and Mary Ellen
