Can You Help Out This Family?

I don't know that I've ever posted something like this here. I am now. This time, the people involved are a personal friend and her family, including this cutie:

They are in a sticky situation and the GoFundMe details don't even share it all. They have 5 kids at home, my friend is disabled, their rental is not in great shape (but with 5 kids, their options are limited), and then the added serious issue discussed on the GoFundMe page. They have a serious need to move ASAP. And not just move, but to get settled somewhere far from where they are now, where they will be financially okay, which means moving to the other side of the country where the cost of living is much cheaper. You can help. Every dollar counts. If you can only donate $1, it will help. If you can do $5 or even $10, don't think, "Oh, it's not much, it's not going to make a difference." If 1000 people visit the page and donate $5 each, that's $5000 to help my friend and her family. If everybody donates at least $10, then $10 000. Every dollar makes a difference.

Please visit their GoFundMe page , share their page on Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, anywhere where people might see and can help. And remember, any amount you can give them will make a difference.

  1. People have been asking her, "Why don't you just go to the police?" He has not yet done enough to warrant that and while they might qualify for some sort of protection order, they have experience with unstable people and experience with that has shown that you don't want to trigger them to do something worse than they've already done. I know I've seen stories of people getting protection orders and not only did it do nothing, but the person seemed hell-bent on making sure to do something against it. He is unstable, but there's not enough in the law to actually do anything about it.
