Help Dave and Bleckley Progress

$55 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 3 people in 6 months
For those of you who don't know, my name is Dave Whitaker.   A Cochran native, but have lived for over 30 years at my current home.  My dad, David Whitaker helped start bleckleyprogress.com  almost 13  years ago because he believed in my talent.  I am talented but have certain issues that make getting regular work difficult.  In November of last year, my dad died unexpectedly of pancreatic cancer.   And the settling of the estate is going slowly.   Credit card companies which have to be paid off to prevent them from placing a lien against the property.  I have limited income.  My sister has her own debts, and is struggling to pay my dad's, plus help me.  Plus, I'll be getting less money once everything is settled because of my intention to keep the home.  So I am asking that if you can and wish to do so, to please donate.  To help with my bills, to help ensure my future. Thank you.

The check from my dad's IRA has been deposited. In order to take financial burden off my sister April, money from it will have go toward some of my personal bills. However, I still have work-related expenses to think about also (IE: gas, auto insurance.)

So again I ask, if you feel led to so, please consider helping. The estate is not settled, and I don't know what expenses await me. Your support is both needed and appreciated. Thank you.

Will be getting a check from my dad's IRA. Unexpected. It will be going in business account. Will help. But it's not a problem solver, money from IRA is taxable. Unsure of what other expenses will be on me once estate is settled. Your help is still needed and appreciated. Thank you.

Things remain dire. My sister was unable to make the mortgage payment this month because of her financial situation. I have no idea on when I will be able to access my trust. Your help so that I can try to get hold to the debt I have acquired for things like food would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Soon, I will be signing documents authorizing transfer of my dad's IRA. Unsure of the amount. Don't know a lot about IRA's. Do know that they can be depleted, and can be harmed by the stock market. Also know you get taxed on withdrawals. I am still trying to run the site, make smarter financial decisions, meanwhile still live. It's not easy. Not when you have as much credit card debt as I have and a limited income. So please, if you've not done so, consider donating. You will not only be supporting my work, you'll be helping me secure my future. Thank you.
