Please consider donating $5 or more to my friend whose ex-husband, already delinquent on child support, recently died amidst tragic circumstances.
Earlier this year I posted a GoFundMe page for my friend Amy Hines, a single mom with 3 kids (3 year old twin boys and a 7 year old girl), whose ex-husband had not come through with child support payments for several months. Amy's daughter is one of my daughter's close friends from school. Her last campaign helped her to partially catch up on car payments and some of her back rent payments.
However, on June 8, she found out that her ex-husband, and father of her children, was involved in apparent assault/suicide. He died from his injuries on June 11.
Here is a link to the story about this incident: http://www.wvec.com/my-city/vabeach/Beach-police-investigating-assault-in-Wythe-Village-262324381.html
Her ex-husband owed several thousand dollars ($8192) in back child support, but he died destitute, so there's no estate or insurance policy for her or the kids. It will take her a little time to establish government assistance and to acquire social security survivor benefits for the kids. Amy has applied and interviewed for many jobs over the past few months but has not found one that would be reasonable considering the cost of childcare for two children.
She could use money to cover rent, car payment, insurance, utilities, or groceries. Anything you may be able to contribute helps, even in the smallest amount.
If you'd like more information about her story or circumstances, or you'd like to contribute in a different way than through this site, please feel free to contact me.
