The tragedy in Aurora Colorado is felt across the entire state of Colorado and across the entire country from coast to coast. Families will not only struggle with the emotional impact but also the financial impact of medical bills, funeral bills, and reduced paychecks from days missed at work.
We need your help. We need help spreading the word about our hardship relief program. We need more people to know about this program. You had the knowledge to donate to this program to help working class Americans recover from a catastrophic event. We need more people to donate.
The program has only raised $370 which, unfortunately, does not even cover one month’s rent for an average family. When tragedies such as the one in Aurora Colorado or cancer or a major illness or even death happen unexpectedly to our family, friends, community or co-workers we often feel helpless. Mercy for Me is a charitable giving program that can provide short term financial relief. By grouping individual giving into one fund collectively we can provide substantial assistance to those in need. No longer do you need to feel helpless.
You gave us a very thoughtful donation. Please take the next step and send our program to your friends and ask them to contribute. If you have Facebook, post our link on your Facebook page and give your friends an outlet to help those in need.
This past Mother’s Day Mercy for Me recognized the following women as our 2012 Mercy for Me Military Mom Heroes:
Mercy for Me and our supporters are so grateful to all the men and women that volunteered to join the armed services and commit to defending our freedoms home and abroad. Every person in the military goes through much sacrifice on our behalf and we cannot say thank you enough. More and more, many of our military heroes are mothers and on this past Mother’s Day we recognized all of them. Our Military Mom Heroes received Mother’s Day meals thanks to your generous support.
Coming up -- Mercy for Me will be focusing on Labor Day celebrations and Thanksgiving celebrations. If you know a military family in need of meals please tell us and please continue to spread the word that we have holiday meals available for them.
Thank you for your continued support through donations and spreading the word about Mercy for Me.
Thank you for being a hero by helping our military heroes who are struggling after return home from their service. You, our Donor Heroes, have helped give out nearly $40,000 to deserving military heroes in crisis. Without your support these military heroes and their families would continue to suffer.
Through your generous support you have helped veterans like Efrain in Indiana who is disable and served in Iraqi. Efrain and his son were going to be evicted but we worked with his landlord and saved their home. Efrain writes, "I am happy to inform you that the check was delivered today. I gave Linda (landlord) a hug for being so patient with me while going through our hardship. May I also extend hugs to you and all who made it possible to help veterans like myself. It makes me proud to have served our country."
Many of our military heroes struggle with injuries and waiting for government services which are slow to come. Through your donations we have been able to help out in this critical gap. Currently, we have $18,000 of unfunded applications.
Henry in Texas served in the Army in Afghanistan. He is medically disabled. Government services are slow in assisting him. He has drained his savings while he waits for VA and Social Security. He needs $2,200 to save his home.
April in Maryland served in the Army National Guard. She is a single mom with two children and unemployed. She is doing the best that she can to maintain her household while waiting for government services. She is in need of $1,060 to stop the court ordered eviction.
Kenny G. as of March 2012 was medically discharged due to combat related injuries. His utilities and mortgage are behind as he awaits government processing. Dale C. has recently returned from Afghanistan. He has a wife and 3 children. They are 3 months behind on their rent. This list goes on of service men and women across the country struggle with paying the basic necessity of housing. These veterans suffer from combat related injuries, unemployment now that they are back, and slow government processing. At stake is the roof over their family's heads.
Your continued support will help these military heroes and the others on our waiting list. Please give today and please forward this to your co-workers, friends, and family who have an interest in giving back to our military servicemen and women.
