My husband is a Park Ranger in the GSMNP. 36062650_1547140460344693_r.jpegHe has, as of today, been furloughed for 26 days. We have two beautiful girls, ages 5 months and 4 years. We have a mortgage, car payments, insurances, groceries, diapers, wipes, formula, gas, medications that we budget for every month. We have never asked for help, because we are responsible with our money. But we can only budget when money is coming in, and now we are holding our breath as we watch the politicians in DC use our family, as well as 800,000 others, as pawns. We have no say in this, no choice, and I'm mad as hell. My husband just wants to go back to work to provide for our family, and protect the National Park and the wildlife within it he loves so dearly. I've never done this before, so I'll just see where this goes. I know everyone is tight right now, with the holidays being over. Even a few positive thoughts sent our way would be very appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit of our story, and we wish you all a healthy, happy, fulfilling new year. ♡

We've received some guidance from the OGE, in regards to the over 1,000 federal employees with gofundme pages. Since I am the spouse, the guidelines won't apply to me. If you live near a National Park, please call dispatch and find out if there are any interns/seasonal employees in your area. They could use some support and kindness as well. Thank you all for your continued support of my family, and the hundreds of thousands of other federal employees in this great country. ♡
