The Mejia Family Home

Hi everyone. First off let me say that in no way is this an emergency. There are far more worthier causes out there and I do encourage you donate to them instead. However if you feel you have a minute to read on and perhaps a dollar or two then I thank you as of now just for considering it. Let me tell you about myself and my family. My name is Edgar. I am the oldest of 4. My sister and I are in the market to buy our first home together for our family of 6 plus my grandmother who is bedridden and thus needs constant care.The 7 of us live in a 3 bedroom house so it can get pretty cramped.I am 25 and my sister is 23. My parents, my sister and i all work full time. I myself am also a fulltime student. I hope to go into epidemiology. We live on Long Island. It can get pretty expensive here and we are all on a budget. You make ask yourself "why is this any of my problem?". Well its not and I realize that. What I am hoping for is to find any help at all in raising money to complete our downpayment on a new home. We have most of it and so I am just reaching out into the dark to see if someone reaches back. Realistically we would need 20k to complete closing costs but again that is not your concern. None of this is. Please do not take me as some spoiled kid trying to get a handout. This is simply an attempt to perhaps find someone whos knows what its like to be a young first time home buyer on a budget. Again if you dont find us worthy thats perfectly fine. If nothing else i hope it encourages you to donate to a better cause. Thank you so much for reading this far. That alone means alot.
