Help Heat/Repair my home!

2014-04-30 17:03:54 by doublemaximus

Hey there everyone! I’ve been hearing a lot about this “GoFundMe” page and I was recommended that I gave it a shot. If this is successful, my family and I will definitely be so so so happy to be able to heat our home for this coming winter. I will explain my situation to those who are unaware of my living situation:

My name is Ciara and my family and I need some of your help. We live in an old cinder block home that was built in the late 1800s and age is getting the best of it. However, our biggest concern for our home is our lack of a heat source. Sure, it’s getting warmer now, but we barely survived the last winter with temperatures dipping down below 10 degrees inside. We haven’t had heat for a few years now, but last winter was definitely the worst we have ever experienced.

We made due with layers of clothing and stacks of electric blankets, but the frigid air in our home took a toll on us. The cold crippled us from doing any ordinary household activity such as cooking, cleaning, bathing, etc. It even halted my passion for art. I could not draw without my hand becoming stiff from the cold. My sister, my boyfriend, my grandmother, and our animals basically sheltered ourselves in blankets for five months straight.

So, I do not want to let that happen again. I want to try and raise money so we can buy insulation and dry wall in order for us to seal up the major holes that have been letting what warm air we have escape. I would like to be able to work on the house during the summer months in order to prepare for the next winter.

I appreciate you reading this and we could really use your help! Please spread the word and help keep us warm for future winters!

Thank you so much!❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

The community hasn't come together on anything like this lately so it is TIME! Posting this up on the NG Facebook, will also include in the next FP post.

Of course I'll donate. But no more pets, okay? Otherwise I'll start mailing you my self-replicating pride of cats, then you'll be completely under their mind control! My first thought was a Tyvek wrap around the whole house...

Well, 'kindness doesn't feed the bulldog', as Churchill used to say, but hopefully you'll get enough to get things sealed up properly. Anything to keep the cold and snakes out....

If you can convert a picture into a drawing in your style, I would be more than happy to donate. Probably wouldn't take more than an hour to do, and I'll send you $50. Sound good? PM me and we'll discuss it. Thanks!

I slept in my van all winter in Canada. It would go down to -40. Up to -25 it was OK without an electric blanket. Electric blankets are the fucking bomb and without them, people like you and me without decent heaters would freeze.

Get some insulation in that bitch, and get a good fireplace that can circulate air.

My van is insulated to the nines and is not a very expansive space, so just the body heat alone gets trapped. I would use my dogs as heat-bags and they worked very sufficiently.

I wish I could help... I really do. BUT MY SHITTY ASS COUNTRY DOESENT ALLOW ME TO USE PAYPAL OR ANY OTHER PAYING SERVICE. But fo` real. I`ve been in a similiar situation, if not in a worse one (my house was falling apart and the roof was broken and it looked like a drug dealers shelter).Anyways, i`ll try to help you in any way possible. Like, if you have Skype, hit me up (mr.dadulence is the name) i`ll always be up fo` talk.

I wish all best to you.
