Final report

Thank you for your support of this program.  As reported earlier to you we sent 100% of the funds we received in the Working American Hardship Relief Fund to relief efforts in New Jersey for Super Storm Sandy. Currently, there are no remaining funds available to help anyone else in crisis. 

When tragedies such as a community crisis or an individual's 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.

Thank you for your  continued support.

Super Storm Sandy

Thank you for your support of this program.  As you know Super Storm Sandy divested many homes and families.  On your behalf, we have sent 100% of the funds we received in the Working American Hardship Relief Fund to relief efforts in New Jersey. In addition, we have combined your donations with 2 additional small local group donations to send nearly $1,000 in support. A volunteer team worked with a local church and shelter to supply items they needed and help serve those impacted by Sandy. The funds are being used to provide bleach, toiletries, food, and other much needed essential supplies.

Thank you for your continued support.

Aurora Colorado

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.

True Help for the Working Class...

Sharing is Caring
Sharing is Caring

While our lawmakers scramble to figure out how to fix our sputtering economy, we're not going to sit back and watch idly. This program was designed to help struggling working class American families facing emergency hardships NOW! We commend the efforts being made like the recent launch of HARP 2.0 for underwater homeowners, but this will only help a small fraction of the people that really need help.

I recently heard about a family that nearly lost their teenage daughter in a tragic automobile accident. She has been fighting for her life for nearly 3 months. It has been amazing the way the community has rallied around this family, but we can do even more for families like this. This type of accident can be devastating to a working family because parents have to miss work to be with their recovering children.

With your help will we be able to meet our goal and help hardworking American families facing hardships. Please help us spread the word about this program for working families!
