Raise the roof!

41472762_1566375959871841_r.jpegMy mother needs a new roof on her house. She has needed a new roof for about 15 years now, since moving onto the property.  This past winter,  the roof situation became dire when it started leaking into the kitchen. 

My mother is a kind woman who anticipates the best out of people. A friend of a friend who happened to be a roofer said they would help her and replace the roof for the cost of only supplies. Being the trusting person that she is, she gave the contactor all of her hard-earned savings money up front, which obviously proved to be a huge mistake. Of course the contractor ran away with her cash and disappeared  off the face of the earth, nowhere to be seen.

We have a deadline to adhere to, imposed by the bank, who has invested interest in the well-being of the home. We need a new roof  FAST  before the fall rains come.  Please help my mother save her home! Donate if you can, and please share this post. We need help raising the roof!
