Bridge the Gap for Ginger & Victor

My friends have hit a rough patch (as happens to many folks at some time), but this time, events kind of blew them away. I’ve known them since just after they were married, and got to be present at the birth of each of their three beautiful children, so I think I know them pretty well. They are good people in a tough spot. Below is their story.

About us
We are a family of 5.  Victor lost his temp-to-perm job (hence, ineligible for unemployment) near the end of August.  The timing was terrible; just 5 days after Ginger had given notice to start a new job that involved re-building a clientele from ground up (massage therapy).  And 2 days after we had put $2,000 of car repairs on our credit card. 

Good news and relief on the horizon
Our church is helping us with groceries through mid-November. Victor had an offer after a few weeks that was contingent on a contract being renewed by end of the fiscal year (Sept. 30th).  It wasn’t.  He now has another offer, but we are still waiting on a start date as before.  Please join us in praying for nothing to hold up the start date and for it to start ASAP.   

Today’s need
Ideally, we would raise $2700 by November 3rd, but a week after that could work.   We have cut all our costs to the bare minimum, and exhausted our liquid savings during October.  Ginger has received her last paycheck from her previous job and the new one has been even slower than anticipated.  A breakdown of the funds needed:

Mortgage and condo fee              $2070
Utilities                                                    $160
Car payment                                         $270
GoFundMe fees                              ~ $200
TOTAL                                                   $2700

 Any amount over this total would be a much-appreciated cushion.

If you feel led to be part of God’s provision for us at this time, we thank you! We thank our friend, Robbin, for setting this up.

You can also support us by using Ginger’s great services and  her aromatherapy products:
Massage therapy
Aromatherapy lotions, oils, room sprays, bath salts and more

Last note (from friend, Robbin)
Let’s smooth the way for Ginger, Victor and their three awesome kids.
Ginger’s aromatherapy and massage therapy are not to be missed! Do yourself and a friend a favor by purchasing. 

Ginger, Victor and I are very grateful to you for any contribution you can make. Also, sharing this GoFundMe with your social network would mean so much. Every penny counts and is so much appreciated!
