Help us keep our home!

As many of you know, we were in a pretty tough spot last year. Since that time we've both started working full time and for a brief moment we were finally caught up with all of our bills and things were looking. But like so many other families we are one strange happenstance or unexpected accident away from falling over again. Last month we went to store and purchased some money orders to pay a few of our bills (rent included). After we purchased them we set them out to remember to take them to their respective places when we went out again. During that time our son Chase (he is 4 years old and autistic), somehow got his paws on them and they were lost in that crazy realm of things that kids lose in some pocket of alternative universe. We tore the house apart for a few days trying in vain to find them again, but to no avail. Luckily, I had kept the reciept pieces to the money order. Unluckily, Western Union had me mail them in with a fee in order start the refund process that could take up to 60 days. Our apartment complex said that once we were a week late they had to file for a court date for eviction, but we were still not very concerned as our tax refund was slated to come Friday, February 22cd, and we would have a few days leeway and be able to pay everything out of that and put the money back when the refund came in. 
Well, we just found out that we will not be receiving any of our tax return (Kaylee had some old student loan debt that they took out of it). Now we have about a week to come up with the money to replace the money orders so that we aren't evicted, as well as the late fees and court fees. Once we get the refunds back everything will go back to normal, but the rush is on now and we need your help! Even if all you can do is share, please do! Every dollar gets us closer to staying home!
