Cameron & His Kids Need Help

Cameron Travis---Marine Corp Vet, dedicated and loving single dad with full placement of two teenage kids, blogger, hard worker, creative cook, and all-around inspirational good guy---recently fell on hard times.
Yesterday, he lost his job of 3 years with no notice. As a leasing specialist for a large apartment complex, he lives on-site and therefore, has to move within 30 days. To make matters worse, the family car is permanently disabled (after months of costly repairs that didn't solve the problem, just drained the bank account). 
Cameron has sole custody of his kids, Nikyah, age 17 and Jaylan, age 13. Kids are expensive and teenagers even more so. Cameron thinks his kids hung the moon. You have only to read his blog ( ) or see his Facebook posts to notice how much he adores those children and strives to give them the best.
He is devastated by this recent turn of events. His biggest concern is 'not letting his kids down'
(they've already been through some hard times before Cameron got full placement and he desperately wants to give them stability and security.)
Main goals are moving expenses (packing up the old place, finding and securing a new place in less than a month) and getting the family a working car. Time is of the essence. If you can't give financially, maybe you know of someone who has an extra set of wheels? Maybe you know of a reasonable apartment that would suit the family. Maybe you know somebody who is hiring. Staying in the area (Middleton, WI) is important to Cameron so that his kids don't have to switch schools and leave their friends.
We've all been inspired by Cameron's positive and inspirational daily thoughts, his kindness and big heart and the way he just keeps going despite all kinds of adversity. 
It's time to give back AND pay it forward. He'd do the same for all of us. 
Much gratitude for any help you can give.
