I'll try to keep this succinct, as I don't want to bore you with a sob story.
I live in Richmond, California, a suburb in the San Francisco Bay Area metropolitan area. Out here the cost of living is high and the job market is heavily saturated. In January 2014, I lost my job and I've been unable to find steady work since. Three months later, my savings has been exhausted and we are now going to be facing eviction.
My sister in Minnesota has offered to take us in. However, we have to get there somehow. We're going to be packing up everything we can and drive there in my pick-up truck. We've decided to try to finance this endeavor through crowdfunding with GoFundMe. We're reaching out and asking for help from any kind soul willing to donate even the littlest amount. Every dollar we raise is another several miles closer to starting our life again in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

We will appreciate any amount you can spare. Thank you all for your time and caring support.
