Help Alissa, Jason, & baby Eris!

Hi everybody!

Can you help? My sister Alissa & her husband (aka "my brudder") Jason take time off to care for their soon-to-be-born baby, Eris?  

Alissa gets very limited parental leave and won't be able to be insured during that time.  
Jason doesn't get any parental leave at all.  But he needs to be home to help Alissa with my sweet, and very energetic, nephew Aric (who will be 2 1/2 by the time Eris arrives).

The money will be used to cover basic living expenses while Alissa and Jason aren't working.  It will also cover the cost of Alissa's health insurance during her time off.   They need the money by Alissa's due date of March 19th.

I deeply appreciate each and every donation, no matter how small.  It really means the best possible start for Eris.  It also means the smoothest possible adjustment for Aric, who will be going from being an only child to having to a baby sister.  

Anyone who knows Alissa knows that she gives her all, all of the time, and never wants to ask for help or put anyone out.  But I know they, and their little family, need this help and that's why I'm asking for them.  I hope you can help me help them. :)

Thank you so much!
