Family Expenses

Hello friends & caring warm hearted individuals,
In 2011 my wife walked out on our family & returned to Mexico leaving me to raise our 6 children. I continued to work managed to keep finances in order & keep up on extra curricular activities.
8/1/13 i lost my job, of 5 years was given severance pay of 6 months. We have survived this long with the help of a few months of unemployment.
With school clothes shopping, supplies, minor school fees i am being financially challenged. I have been able to provide them with most of their needs, & the stability of staying in the same house but right now i'm worried about not having any finances to provide Christmas Lay away or emergency funds.
The purpose of this fundraiser is to help me provide basic necessities for my family Our goal is $3,000 but anything over that would just be a little cushion for us to keep our feet planted.
So thank you to everyone who contributes no matter how little lets make the most of the time we have this online event! We would be so grateful if you could please share this link through email, twitter or on Facebook.
