Families in Crisis

A dear friend and fellow blogger is in crisis and needs assistance. You may know Margalit from MidCentury Modern Moms. She has twins the same age as my Amigo, both fascinating yet challenging children.

Her son is in the hospital, seriously ill. As she deals with this, she has other major financial crises that far exceed her savings.
Her car, left in Maine, is being declared abandoned unless she can raise the $1,000 to go get it.
The landlord has threatened to evict the family because of a broken window - a cost of $700 to repair, money they do not have.

Please consider donating to the family through Paypal using the button below or in the sidebar. Margalit is a proud and strong woman; she would not ask for help if she weren't desperate. Small amounts add up; don't hesitate to make a small donation.


Margalit has been very supportive for me during IEP conflicts and other issues. She is an intelligent and decent person; I'm offering help because I know her and trust her.

Have M. contact the local LDS Bishop for emergency assistance. Her religion does not matter.

I'm so sorry to hear about the Boy. Why does it cost $1000 to get a car, and why was it left in Maine if they live near Boston? Thanks!
