RHUer Asks For Help For Grocery Store Worker's Family Struggling to Overcome Injury
I'm a regular reader and occasional commentor, and I was wondering if it'd be possibly for you guys to send a little love over to a GoFundMe.
This is for a friend's co-worker, who works at a grocery store in Mass. The co-worker has three young kids (10-13, two boys and a girl) and while they used to have two incomes, an injury has left her husband out of work. We all know what it's like to work with one income for a family of 2-3, but a family of 5 is even harder, especially during the holidays.
My friend set up this GoFundMe in the name of Doctor Who, hoping to do something The Doctor would be proud of. I can't help personally, but I've been throwing this link all over to try and get it some love. They're not asking for much, so I think it's totally doable if we give it the proper attention.
If you can't, I understand, but I hope we can come together to support another family depending on one income to have something better than sadness this holiday season.
