No Luck November

Last month, we faced unexpected car repairs costing just over $700, on top of having to renew our registration and pay a large sum of car taxes I hadn't been able to pay previously. We also suffered some other personal losses that negatively affected our finances. We've been working hard to recover from October's financial misery, and now yesterday, a car accident. A driver took a sharp left without checking traffic and signaling, resulting in a collision. Thankfully, the car is not totaled, and no one was hurt. But the insurance deductible and time lost off of work is hurting us at the worst possible time. Bills have already been piled up. We got on payment plans, and were getting ready to make those payments. I feel so much shame in asking for help, but I'm at a loss for what to do, and taking care of my family comes before pride. If you can contribute, any little bit helps. I will always cherish each and every one of you, even if all you can do is share the campaign. If I'm ever in a position to do so, any contributors will be thanked with more than just words and hugs.
