Mona Kirk/Daniel Panico and 3 kids

$66,722 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 815 people in 4 months
My name is Jackie Klear. I live in Yucca Valley, Ca.  I have known Mona Kirk, Daniel Panico and the children for well over 10 years. Mona Kirk use to run the Mommy and me class at the Yucca Valley community center. She never pulled enough money from the class and was always using money from her own pocket to support the program. She was great with the babies and kids who attended. They rented a home in Joshua Tree. They struggled like most people do. But they got by. Then they were told they had to leave as they were selling the place. A few of us helped pack them up, put their belongings into storage and they moved thier trailer into my yard. We ran electricity and water to their trailer and all was well. Eventually they wanted to move to their 5 acre land that they owned and build their own home. My husband was going to help them build that home. But as time went by, they had used all the money they had for living expenses. And here is where we stand 4 years later. The kids always came first. Any money they got from side jobs and such was spent on their kids. Food and the basic necessities. The kids were fed healthy and were part of just about any activity or group that was available to the community. Soccer, Gems, Girl Scouts, Phoenix Scouts, They had park days with the homeschool groups and so on. They were well known in the library and museum as Mona loved to teach her children in a different way. Both Mona and Daniel fell ill for a little while which only made things harder and worse for them. Many of her friends have helped them with whatever we were capable of doing. I am raising money for Mona Kirk and Daniel Panico to help get them back on their feet and get their 3 children back in their lives. I am hoping to either by a home for them to live in or build them one on their land with the money we are raising. This way they will not have to worry about rent. The rest of the money is going towards all the requirement they must follow in order to get their children back. I am a very close friend of theirs and this family is torn apart from each other. I could see in court that Mona had most likely been crying since this all happened. All of this caused by a spiraling downfall over time. Please help this family as they would give you the shirt off their back to help any of you. I will be withdrawing the funds in my name.  Thank you Everyone

Its killing me not being able to update and post for the whole world to see what the outcome was for our court date last week. I am being watched by Cps and was told if I say anything it would be considered me putting the children at risk and they will remove the children. So, all I'm going to say is you should all read the last stories from the newspapers. And you should all pat yourselves on the back, because what we aimed to do for this family has all fallen into place. I want to thank everyone once again. You made a huge difference in this family's lives and I have never seen bigger smiles on those children's faces.

Please SHARE...Tag anyone you know who may be interested. We need to get the word out to as many as possible.
Calling out all of Mona and Daniels support group.
We need your help. On Thursday at 8:30 am. We need as many as Mona and Daniels supporters outside the courthouse in San Bernardino. The judge needs to see that they have a large support group that still stands behind them. I will gladly arrange rides for anyone who doesn't have a way down there.
We were given a few things to take care of last week and as long as they were done, they said they will let Mona and Daniel take home their children after court on Thursday. We got it done. Just need them to see they still have a support team.
This is the day we have all been working for.
Please let me know if you need a ride from Yucca Valley or Joshua Tree area. We will get you down there.
We will not be allowed into the courtroom, but were told the judge will know that we are there.
Lets do this!!!

Sorry for not posting an update sooner. Things continue to be crazy and hectic over here still. Mona and Daniel have been moved into their new home. We should be done with the addition this week. (We had a lot of help that first week, but after the story died down, It was me and my husband and a few others that continued to get things done.) They have been going through their belongings on the land and moving their keepsakes into the new house. Things are still moving forward in court. We are hoping the lawyers tomorrow can get their case moved down to an infraction. Mona and Daniel still do not have their children back. That has been a nightmare battle by itself. We are hoping that if the case is brought down to an infraction tomorrow that maybe CPS will follow along and return the children as there really was no criminal case. Mona and Daniel have been visiting the children every week. This has been difficult for them though. 4 hour drive each way. The sale of the house will be complete this week and we will also be starting on the cleanup of the land. I want to thank everyone who has helped and continues to pray for this family. You are all a blessing. Its been a long road over here and everyone is very tired. But, together... we all made a difference for this family. I will update again once we find out what happens in court. Thank you!!!

Wanted to post a little update. Mona and Daniel will be moving into their new home either tomorrow or Monday. Its been a long hard road for all those who have been helping, but we did it. They were told by 2 different lawyers on Friday that if they can get in the house this weekend, they have a chance at getting their kids back on Monday. Please pray for them and that this all works out on Monday. . Thank you so much to all of you who supported and prayed for this family. You all completely changed this family's lives around.
