Family Afloat Fund!

My husband is a very hard worker and we normally manage just fine. As in: We can pay the bills, but we might have to rob Peter to pay Paul and if there is an extra bill thrown in... we just don’t have it. So, my husband, Dan, has applied for a training program through his work to be able to get a higher paying job. We thought that he wasn't picked and that was fine, God would open another door. Well there was an unknown second round of training and so HE GOT THE CALL!!! God gave us this blessing after all!!!
Now for some logistics. We only have a week and a half to prepare. This program is 6 weeks of unpaid leave from his current position. We are a large family of seven. With him leaving we will be unable to pay either rent or the bills. We also must pay for endorsements, permit and a physical that totals over 300 dollars prior to starting. I am a full-time student and can only work part time as we also have 5 daughters who need supervision. We need some help for staying afloat. We have cut any frivolous expenses long ago. We really do the bare minimum; however, we have rent and utilities, gas, food, toiletries (for 5 girls and ourselves), phone, car insurance, and internet (as a student I have to have internet access as do the kids for homework).
This is a huge opportunity for our family, his pay would almost double, and honestly, we need this. Any donations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance! Seriously. Thank you
