For someone who's been around in Fandom forever, and finds herself in dire straits.
I know it's a bad time of year to be asking for money, but what's #SPNfamily for if you can't ask for help when you need it.

Because of everything piling up they weren't able to pay their December rent and now this month's rent is due as well. They've just recently gotten their eviction notice from their apartment manager. In order to not lose their home they have to pay last month, this month and the 'cost' of court filings for the apartment complex. Their normal rent is $700.00 per month so, at best, they're looking at needing $1600.00.
We're going to be calling every organization, every church, that we can think of here in Louisville that might be able to help. I know that this is a bad time of year, a lot of them are already tapped out. But, I have to try. I can't just stand by and do nothing. What worries me the most is that they have two little guys and it looks more certain every day that they'll lose their home without some kind of miracle happening.
Mandy is a good, kind person who is doing her best to provide for her family. Thankfully, she's even got the prospect of a new job. One of the temp agency's she's registered with has called about a position that would start this Sunday. But, even if she's lucky enough to get it, any pay she earns wouldn't be soon enough to help them keep their home.
She shouldn't be facing something like this alone. Please, please, if anyone would like to help, even if it's just a couple of dollars, her PayPal address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most importantly, if you wouldn't mind, help me pass the word about this along. I give blanket permission for you to share this post wherever you can. The more people that see it, the better chance we have at getting her some help. I don't want them to end up homeless with two little boys depending on them.
*hugs you all tightly*
