We get letters: Please help a family in need

Jaime and her kids

I received the following e-mail the other day from a reader in need of assistance…

Hi Trench,

I’ve been an avid reader of your blog for well over a year now, albeit a silent reader. I know you’re a busy guy, and this request is a little out of your norm, but I’m really hoping you can help. My family is facing a serious situation, due to the fact that I’ve been medically forced to stop working. My husband is a disabled Army vet,who cannot work, and due to the severity of my condition, I truly cannot work until I recover from a spinal surgery which will be taking place sometime in the next 6-8 weeks.

We are facing eviction and homelessness if we cannot find a way to earn extra income during this time. To that end, I’ve set up a donation page on GoFundMe, explaining things more in detail. I’m hoping you would be willing to post the link to the GoFundMe page on your blog.

Please help us. We’ve been reaching out on Twitter, Facebook, etc and we’re getting a little desperate. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments, thank you for reading this.

As most of my avid readers know I’ve been in similar situations so I can understand where Jaime and her family are coming from. Please donate whatever you can afford to Jaime’s family. I’ve posted the GoFundMe link below and on the donations page
