Israel Rodriguez Sr. from CNN evictions story

Donation protected 

This fundraiser is meant for Israel Rodriguez Sr.'s family, to get them back on their feet after seeing being evicted from their apt with a young child on the cnn news report.

I am Patrick Tarnowski, I live in Buffalo NY. I lived in Houston for 9 years working as a teacher, I saw this story last night and could not find a gofundme when I wanted to help the Rodriguez family as so many of us are right now, so today before I went into work I started my first GoFundme for them.  

Israel and I are now in contact working together now on this fundraiser. I feel like I just made a friend for life. 

All donations will go to Israel Rodriguez and family! He will be giving messages and connecting to us here. He is grateful for everyone's help and has so many new plans for his families future.
