The family and friends of Carol & Randy are uniting to raise money to help them stay in their home of 11 years. Goal: $6,000

Carol and Randy are at serious risk of losing their home as they are 4 months in the rears with the mortgage on their home of of 11 years.

Your support is needed in December….Please...

This past year has been one of the most difficult financial years in Carol and her husband Randy's lives. Randy has been a highly skilled stone and granite fabricator for over 11 years. He has met his family’s needs though working in this trade. A badly damaged rotator cuff injury made it impossible for him to use his right arm and impossible for him to continue his work with stone. This combined with the current state of the economy ---began the spiral downhill for their family. Randy eventually found work with a national cable company but was laid off. He has been limited by the jobs he can physically do and is currently working part time in retail at a low hourly rate and not making ends meet.

Carol has –her whole life supported and helped many others. She has advocated for the environment, for animal rights and has spent much of her time supporting parents in developing conscious parenting practices. She has been supporting families online and in person. Recently she began studying social media and has been interning with small businesses--making her social media skills available to help small businesses gain a social media presence. Carols aspiration in the New Year is to create her own social media business and is currently seeking clients. But building any small business takes time .

Carol and her family have always been self sufficient and have met their own needs --as a family independently. Their inability to make their last 4 months mortgage payments has been a great strain and has been a whole new experience for them. If they can raise $6000.00 in December they can stay in their home.

Carol and Randy have been married for 25 years. Their small modest home is their pride and joy. This is their place for family and friends to gather.

Randy and Carol are both actively seeking work and need help getting caught up and back on track. Any contribution will make a difference.They are grateful for any help received.
