$1700 Raised!

$1700 Raised!

It’s true. Amazing things happen. In 9 days, 9 people raised $1700. ROCK ON! We are celebrating! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Our family chose to live in a 429 sqft RV. We joke that each of one of us gets 100 sqft and the dog gets 29. The important point, all joking aside, is that we chose to minimize our life-style.

Recently, we met a family of 6 who did not choose to live in a trailer, but it’s their only option. A generous estimate of their living space is 84 sqft (about 14 sqft per person). They’re making the best of it, they’re gracious, and their only concern has nothing to do with personal comfort. Mom worries about safety.

We started a fundraising campaign to gift this family with a bigger RV- one that has a private toilet, a shower, and where no one has to sleep in the aisle.

Life is messy, but we give hope when we help each other. Please consider giving hope to this family!

In faith and life,

Ann, Ivan, Hannah, and Isaiah

Bigger Trailer for 6 Update

We’re raising funds to help a homeless mother move her family of 6 into an RV that will give everyone a good place to sleep.

Someone asked how we put our budget together. We’re trying to raise 25K: About 5K will come off the top to GoFundMe, its pay partner, taxes, registration, title, and misc. state fees.

Our purchasing power will be about 20K. What can we buy with that? I’ve posted an example on our page at http://www.gofundme.com/BiggerTrailer4Six

A $10, $20, or $50 dollar gift will be a BIG blessing. Your prayers are coveted!
