Jenny and Madden Need a New Home

If you know Jenny and Madden you know that they are one of the sweetest son/mom teams out there.  They have a kindness about them that they share with their friends and the community they live in and are just wonderful people.  Jenny is a single mom who just moved recently with her son to a new townhome in the hopes of giving them more room to live and grow.  After a week,  tragedy struck as they found out after an inspection that their new home was infested with mold, so badly so that it would take months for the premises to be liveable again.  After hearing this and fearing for their health, Jenny immediately moved herself and Madden out of the house and into a friend's home until other arrangements could be made.  The landlord in charge of their old property is unresponsive and unhelpful.  She has not recouped any of her moving costs at this point.  Jenny has spent $2500 (deposit, first months rent, and moving costs) on the unlivable property and is now unable to afford the move into a new place. Madden is about to start school and Jenny is scrambling to figure out how to raise funds and help to make this transition as painless as possible for Madden who has been having a rough time with everything that is going on.  

I am starting this fund in hopes that we, as a community, can help Jenny and Madden move quickly into a new and safe place as soon as possible and give back to the family who has given such kindness to their own friends, family, and community.  The funds raised will be strictly used for moving and move-in expenses.   Please consider donating--every little bit helps.  And lets get these two wonderful people in the safe home that they deserve!  Thanks so much for your help and consideration.
