Go take a look and kick some help their way, or signal boost, please?
I know these folks, they're good people, this is legit, and this is a situation nobody should be in.
Hello, my name is Louis Adkins, and I have a problem. I, and my family, currently live in rural West Virginia, near Barboursville (halfway between Charleston and Huntington, the two cities found to be most miserable by Gallup Polls, recently.) We are a family of five, including myself and my wife, as well as my brother, and his two daughters (plus pets!)
We live is a run-down, disintegrating, moldy pile of wood and rust, which we grudgingly call a house. The state of this place is somewhere between terrible and atrocious. The rate of decomposition was outpacing out ability to afford repairs up until now, and we just lost our only job/income!
Well, at least we can still drink the water.. oh, wait, this is West Virginia. Strike that, no drinking the water.
We had a family discussion, and decided we needed out of here. Where, though, would we go, and how would we get there? After consideration of family, friends, and health issues, we decided on Washington State. We ran the math, and winced at the costs. We added our savings, the estimated tax returns, and the retirement fund together, and realized we were still going to be a bit short, so here we are!
We're asking you for help! Please, contribute to our 'Move to WA' fund! You'll be helping get our family out of a virtually unlivable situation, covering costs to move us and our belongings over 2500 miles! This will put us in a cleaner environment, with better public programs and schools! You will be helping us get a clean start in a new place, and that means the world to us. Really.Please help out, or signal boost? They don't have a lot of time left and need all the help they can get.
