When Times are Tough, the Tough Get Evicted.
I know you haven't any funds, but if you could spread the word I'd appreciate it. Operation Saving Grace. http://is.gd/kV4sTn Thanks.
On checking out the link, I saw it was to a GoFundMe page set up by my friend in ChiTown. I won't give you her real name, although you can find out by following the link and looking at her profile. Suffice it to say she's a dear friend of mine who's experienced a devastating loss in her family of late and more drama than all three networks' daytime lineup for a week.
But I will say she and her husband failed to make their mortgage payments for the first time and, if you know mortgage-holding banks like I do, this is the moment they were waiting for. They want you to fall down so you can't get get back up. Late fees, penalties, surcharges, ruthlessly early foreclosure... That's where the real money is at.
Anyway, enough preaching. My friend and her hubby are in a really bad way. When your own back is against the wall, it's tempting to become a selfish Randian and say, "Fuck everyone but me and my own." Your focus, to put it charitably, necessarily gets parochial. But I can't do that, even though Mrs. JP and I are hardly set for life. But I chipped in a little (you'll see my name and note if you're kind enough to click on the link) and if we feel badly enough to chip in, you know the other guy is doing badly.
It ought to be said that, in palmier times last year, this self-same friend of ours helped us out significantly when we were on the ropes and battling the wolves at the door. Those wolves are far enough down the street so we can't even see them, anymore, so I want to take this opportunity to ask anyone reading this to click on the link, donate if you can or at least spread the word on any social network you're on. She's set up a threshold of $8000 and she's only gotten, at this point, a little over 2.5% of that. So please do whatever you can to help my dear friend. Thanks in advance.
