Short Summary

My father's house is over 100 years old and has fallen into severe disrepair because of termites in the past year.  The foundation (made primarily of wood) is now obsolete.  The ceiling has already fallen in several places.  Granted, my father does his best to keep it habitable by fixing these problems as much as possible when they occur.  But the only option is to build a new house.  Nothing extravagant, and we're going the most inexpensive route possible.  Your donation will help purchase supplies and possibly extra labor... as of right now, the only people working on it are my dad, my 13 year-old brother, and myself.

There are 5 children living in the house as it is now.  One of them is a toddler.  Any help would be greatly appreciated to ensure that these kids can live somewhere safe.  If you can't help monetarily, you can help by passing the word along.  Forward the link to anyone who might have the means to help.  

What You Get


If you look on the side of the page, there are different perks for each level of donation.  Feel free to donate more than once if you are interested in multiple perks.  I appreciate every single contributor and donation, and I want you to feel a sense of pride and fulfillment.  YOU are the reason I smile every morning!  YOU are what gives me hope for the world.  Every dollar helps, so if that is the most that you can spare, you can still make a difference!!
