To anyone who is reading... hi. My name is Jamie Ward. My parents- you may know them or you may not- are Nick and Sherry Diacogiannis. They live in a little blue duplex with a stocky old boxer named Brutus and a tiny yappy maltese named Spike. They have one remaining daughter living with them, my little sister Nikole. Nikole is a kind, passionate teenager. Nikole has six little rats. If you have met my parents, then you know that they try to run their personal lives and their work lives with the largest amount of integrity. If you know them, you know that they are passionate too. Passionate about doing the right thing, passionate about injustice. Passionate about their friends and family. They are good people who are struggling. They have been taken advantage of personally, and in a big way, professionally. They have taken some hits lately, but they are not broken. They do, however, need help. Along with various other struggles, the pressing issue here is their mortgage. They need to raise $3,000 to be in good standing with the mortgage company. They are in the foreclosure process as of tomorrow, but they have already been chased after for money that they dont have, which can only be a very emotional and scary time. I can't even imagine. They need to start raising the money now; the goal is $3000 by December, but honestly, anything will help. They are searching for work and selling personal belongings to try and take care of various other bills. They are trying, and they need help. They need a home. The tiny animals need a home, my little sister needs a home. My parents need a home. If you feel it on your heart to help, I can't tell you how much your help will be appreciated. It will keep a good family in a house that they have been faithfully living in for 12 years. Asking for money can be unbearably humiliating and hard, butat this time, it is necessary. Please, if you are able, take the time to help my parents. Any amount is appreciated and we are thankful for your understanding and your giving in this hard time.
