Deals & Steals for Charity Giveaway!

Deals & Steals for Charity is attempting to help two families and an abuse shelter, but we need YOUR help!

Our first family is a struggling mom, in upstate New York, with two children trying to get out of an abusive relationship.  We are trying to come up with funds to help her get to a safe shelter.

Our second family is an elderly couple, in southeast Michigan.  Although, they own there home they are facing foreclosure due to back owed property taxes.  In the past year they have each lost a job and suffered serious illnesses, putting a huge strain on their financial situation.

The abuse center we are trying to help is located in Michigan and due to recent budget cuts they have lost lots of funding and are looking to the public for help.

So, we are going to conduct a giveaway.  In order to be eligible for the drawings (and to raise money for our families) please send a donation in any amount ($1, $2, $5, whatever).  For every donation received you will be entered into the drawing for some wonderful gifts.  Please write your full name, cafemom screenname and the gift pack drawing you would like to be entered in on a piece of paper.  If you would like to be entered in multiple drawings please include a seperate sheet with all your information and drawing you are interested in.  If you don't have a preference, I will randomly throw them in the hats.

Quoting PiggyBug:

No problem! I hope adding the PayPal option will bring in more donations for those in need!

Thank you so much, I sure hope it does.  I am especially worried about our first family in the abusive relationship.  She is taking the necessary steps, but it is so difficult to see how much they are struggling to get out of that life.

       Has the elderly couple looked into a "Reverse Mortgage"--the only thing that I know is that if you over age 65 (( I think) and own your own home--Maybe it is something to suggest to them--LR
