Help Keep Our Family Together

My name is Madeline and I'm trying to raise money to help my mom and the rest of my family. In March 2015, my stepdad Edison, my little brother Eddie, and my little sister Maggie went to Ecuador to try and gain citizenship for my stepdad. They were only supposed to be there for at most a month. It has now been over a year. All 5 of us are living only on my mother Dannelle's income and it has been a struggle. We've barely been getting by and each day it gets harder. Dannelle plans to fly down in July to bring home my brother Eddie so he can continue going to school here. Aside the emotional struggle, money just hightens the problems. This campaign is to help us be able to fund our family and keep us secure. The funds are needed as soon as possible and we all are extremely grateful for the support. The support will mean keeping our family healthy and safe.
