Help Mari-Anne and Larry

I am reaching out to my family and community to assist in helping some very dear friends of mine get back on their feet.  Mari-Anne and Larry are 2 of the most kind and generous individuals I know.  They have stumbled into some hard financial times and are struggling to make ends meet. Mari-Anne continues to work but is maxed out on the amount of hours she is able to do.  Larry has been trying by all means available to attain some sort of steady income.  He is a biologist who has been told "he has been out of his field too long" by all possible employers that he has contacted.  He has applied for just about everything that comes his way and is told by many others that he is "overqualified".  In addition, Larry has recently taken courses in bioinformatics to expand his eligibility for career opportunities.  This has been happening for months and they have tried to keep the best of outlooks as they struggle daily with paying bills and rent, and the constant worry about having to re-home their precious pups due to being unable to afford even the basics.  I am reaching out to you, all as their friend, to ask for communal support in the manner financial donations and serious job opportunities for Larry.  Any and all support is greatly appreciated for this couple who has in the past literally given me the clothes off their backs.
