Help us buy our house back please!

Hello! My name is Marina- and my family’s in a bit of a pinch. My parents are mid-divorce (two years in) and it’s getting ugly. I live with my two little siblings, Mum, three dogs, and a small flock of chickens while Dad is with his girlfriend of the week a few miles away and living it up. He’s a painter loved by the whole town, and has plenty of money to do so, but lately he has been threatening us financially and taking items we need from the house. (Mum’s tools for sign making, the snowblower so the kids can get to the bus, etc.) I’m an online college student right now, and Mum works for minimum wage at the local bakery, so we’re strapped for cash. If we can get $100,000 together we can buy the house back from him and keep him out for good! I’d like to be able to get my degree without worrying about him kicking us out on the streets all the time- and I want both of my siblings, as well as all of the kids we take in when they need it,  to live in a happier environment, free from the fear of the man ruining our lives. If you’d like something in exchange for the money you donate, I’m a commission-able knitter and my Venmo is: @DioKnits Here are a few samples of my work! 52313756_1604379457426836_r.jpeg52313756_1604379508434168_r.jpeg52313756_1604379578543891_r.jpegThank you so much for your support!
