One last time Family Happiness Kenny Soto GoFundME Campaign

– May 1, 2019  My Name is Kenny Soto and I have launched a GoFundME campaign to help my family today. Thank you for taking the time to read my campaign, this really means a lot to my family. I am a Father, married with  6 kids 2 boys and 4 girls. Their names are Kenny jr at 15 years old, Xavier at 17 years old, Alexia at 13 years old, Caroline at 10 years old, Lesley at 9 years old, Isabella 5 years old and my wife Martha.

My wife lost her mom I lost my mom and dad so we are on our own with our kids and now it might be our last time that our kids be with there mom. We lost our parents and it hurts so we want to give our kids the best memory’s they can ever have it will be hard for all of us.

Our next and last trip we want to go to the Philippines but we do not have our passports. Our plan is to first secure our kids birth certificate in order to get their passports. Some of the money will raised will go to order the  birth certificate(s), then we will get our passports. After birth certificates and passports we will need the plane cost for the travel. The accommodation will likely be a hotel and of course food for the family. We wish to spend as much time together as a family and try to travel as much as we can and this year my wife got very sick we do not know if my wife will make it till the end of this year.

The last time my wife went to the doctor they told my wife that she had a lump on the left side of her lung and that the lump got bigger then the lat time we came now my wife is in fear. Now my wife have been suffering with this pain where the lump is.  I am asking for a life long dream surprise for my wife she is wanting to travel across seas.

The reason why I am asking for help is because I cannot afford the trip alone with my wife’s health condition I want my kids to remember their mother in happiness and not be sad.

All the donations that we receive will go towards our trip as a surprise for  the trip. i want to take the fear away from my wife. Thanks to all the  donations we will receive we can make her happy.

Hurricane Michael Help Richard Weaver Family GoFundME Campaign

Hurricane Michael Help Richard Weaver Family GoFundME Campaign

Panama City, FL – January 22, 2019 – I am a cold piece of concrete  that needs a warm home to finish what was started. My family lives in Southport, Florida. I don’t see them much anymore since Hurricane Michael.

I really would like them to finish what they started but they can not due to “banks”. They won’t allow them to get a loan to finish “because they already started construction”. Even though everything done is up to code and has a G.C., and  been inspected by Building Department.

My owner is honest, hard working, with an excellent credit score (over 800),  but this does not matter to “banks”. Trying to save money by doing it yourself and build something (dream) for your family is not easy. Hurricane Michael made it worse. These funds would finish a house for a family of four. My goal was to be finished with the home by summer of 2019.

Although, I did not count on a Hurricane in my goal. Now that is CRUSHED, and I ask for help from you. I would be so grateful, if this would be accomplished, words can not describe, how I would feel. The stress of a Hurricane was terrible for my family.

Trying to move on and give them a home with all failure is very depressing, with no one to turn to. We have been working on this home/land almost 10 years, and its almost like its been erased. All I need is to finish a home and a dream comes true. Take this foundation and make it home for a loving family in need.

For My Family…My Girls…Much Love…and Thank You…

Louella Scott Memorial Fund GoFundMe Campaign

This memorial fund for Louella Scott will assist her family with meeting the financial needs of her passing. Medical costs, funeral costs, and bills left behind will be taken care of with this fund. The family needs this support or they will not be able to cover the financial burden and will lose their home. Please help the Scott family recover from this tragic loss and keep their home.

My name is Gregory Scott. On the 28th of October, 2018 my mother, Louella Fern Scott suffered a severe heart attack. She was rushed to the hospital, but passed away the very next day without ever regaining consciousness.
Louella Scott was a woman who worked all of her adult life until the age of 65 when she retired from the Stanislaus County Office of Education. She cared deeply about her friends and family, and during her final years one of her biggest regrets was not being able to spend more time with the ones she loved.

My mother was my primary role model as a child. My father worked a lot and had interests outside of home when I was young, so that my mother was usually the one parent available to me. We grew to be very much alike and I loved and respected her above all others as I grew up. She taught me to love reading and learning, and helped me understand that a person can always learn something new.

I can remember that long before it was ever an issue, my mother wanted to make sure that things were taken care of should anything ever happen to her. She told me how she wanted me to handle her funeral arrangements and her final rest. My mother did not want there to be any confusion or misunderstanding. She knew that her passing could be an incredibly difficult time for me and wanted to do what she could to lessen the burden.

If this was a perfect world everything would have worked out the way she tried to plan it and there would be no problems. But we do not live in a perfect world and my mother’s plans for her passing have been disrupted. This is why I have begun this campaign.

Because of red-tape and paperwork my mother’s arrangements for her passing have been delayed to the point that extra expenses have been piled on. My mother was thoughtful enough to leave both a small life insurance policy to help pay for funeral costs and a beneficiary payment to me through her retirement fund. However, because of our financial system’s need for a death certificate before financial matters can be settled, several things have been kept from being taken care of. These matters are why I am asking for donations.

Because of the date of my mother’s death I was unable to access or close her bank account before several automated payments took place. These payments have significantly overdrawn her account. The life insurance company my mother went through still has not gotten the necessary paperwork to me almost two weeks after her passing. Also, the paperwork for my mother’s retirement benefits will take an additional 60 days to process. In short, everything my mother put in place to handle her final arrangements is being held up so that none of those monies are available when they are needed.

This is why I have opened this fund raising account. The monies gathered here will be used to pay for funeral and memorial expenses, pay bills, and settle my mother’s financial affairs. I truly wish this was not necessary. However, with the failure of our financial systems to respond in a quick and humanitarian manner, I have no other choice. My mother’s efforts to ease this burden are being prevented by the very institutions she trusted. Please help to see that Louella Fern Scott’s final arrangements can be completed.

SMART Recovery Family & Friends Program Celebrates Five Years

For five years, SMART Recovery® for Family & Friends has been helping people support loved ones who are fighting addiction. This program includes online weekly meetings, active message boards, face-to-face meetings and a Family & Friends Handbook that explains the use of specific tools and strategies that can be employed to help themselves and others.

Executive Director Shari Allwood has been with the organization for more than 20 years. “For the first 15 years, SMART Recovery focused solely on the individuals with addictions,” she said. “Nearly every day we received calls from friends and family members of addicted individuals who were trying to help their loved ones but didn’t know what to do. Sometimes they were just trying to maintain their own sense of balance and self-management. We sadly had to advise these callers that we didn’t have a support program for them. The day we launched the Family & Friends program was one of the most rewarding to me in all these years,” she said. The value of the program is echoed frequently by meeting participants. One remarked, “I feel so supported here and am so relieved to have a place to share thoughts and feelings without fear of criticism or judgement.”

The Family & Friends program utilizes many of the same tools used by the SMART Recovery® program; such as tools to help individuals cope with emotional upsets, learn problem solving techniques, and strengthen communication. “I am here to keep learning the SMART tools to keep my sanity and serenity!! … and it’s working. Yay! Today is a good day,” said another program member.

Anyone who has a loved one struggling with addiction can visit to learn more about the many resources available.

SMART Recovery® (Self-Management and Recovery Training) is a global, nonprofit organization that helps people overcome addictions through free mutual support group meetings in person and online. Each week, many thousands of people discuss recovery progress and challenges at 1,800 meetings in 13 countries, 30-plus online gatherings and 24/7 internet message board forums and chat. Participants use SMART to assume responsibility for their own recovery and become empowered using its 4-Point Program®: building and maintaining motivation; coping with urges; managing thoughts, feelings and behaviors; and living a balanced life. A program for Family & Friends is available for those assisting a loved one with an addiction. Founded in 1994, the program uses science-based techniques that are most effective in helping individuals abstain from addictions to substances and harmful behaviors.

How To Plan For The Future With Your House

It’s one of our biggest investments and some of us are doing it more than once during our life.

Like many things in our life that have changed dramatically, so did our habitation practices. Most of us don’t stay in one house for the full duration of our lives as it used to be for many people in previous generations.

Our modern dynamic life style and economy, calls for flexibility, mobility and frequent changes, People are following their jobs and careers even if it means moving from one side of the nation to the other.

This tendency is in line with our culture of consuming society. We replace everything faster, we treat cloths, cars (some just lease), refrigerators and our dwellings like fashion items with short longevity.

When we decide to buy a house we need to think in terms of sort to medium range periods of time and that should bring us to consider the resale value of our home in the future.

Buying a home with good resale value might take a little longer, and it might take a bit more work on your part, but you’ll love the payback later, when it sells quickly and puts extra money in your bank account.

The first consideration should be your family needs but it’s cleaver to keep an open mind about what might suite future buyers as well.

The most important three factors are: location, location and location… :-)
Indeed, it’s first thing to consider when looking for a home. So, what makes a good location?

There are some general elements which are obvious like:

- Does the neighborhood have easy and fast access to the schools, shopping centers and country club.

- It’s wise to pick a house that is located relatively elevated above the area, that can provide two advantages: a flow of good air and a nicer view.

- How many neighbors are adjacent to you and/or across you in proximity, off course the less the better.

- A house located at the end of the street will suffer less noises from the neighbors and their guests. If the street is a dead end it’s even better. A corner house may have more light and air.

- The positioning of the house towards the north if it’s a warm area as opposed to the south in cold areas. In general, a rule of thumb and this one is general and found right to many locations around the world, as strange as it may sound, the northern neighborhoods are usually more desirable than the southern ones exactly as the western ones are more prestigious than the eastern ones.

- The size of the lot, its shape and the square footage of the house itself.
If the majority of buyers in your area are young families with children,
consider a house with a large yard that’s not fronted by a busy street.

- There are many other environmental aspects to consider with respect to
personal preference like a green agricultural area vs. urban area,
quality of schools and other social services and facilities.

In addition to these external considerations there are many important internal elements that can make a house quality higher and buyers are always looking for, such as:

- Closets, lots of closets and with as much additional storage space as possible.

- Light and bright – Homes with lots of natural lighting are very popular.
– Split bedroom plans, with bedrooms on each end of the home, are increasingly popular with buyers.
– If you live in a scenic area, having a view can help you sell.

- Plenty of bedrooms, baths and Rest rooms.

- Large and convenient kitchen with as many cabinets and cooking space as possible.

- The tendency to work from home calls for a suitable room to be set as a home office.

- Laundry and dryer machines located at the same level as the bad rooms.

- A spacious basement is a plus.

Features to avoid

- One-bath homes sell for significantly less than homes with at least two baths and they take longer to sell.
– Electric baseboard heat and electric ceiling heat are not as desirable as
central heating systems. A fireplace in the living room is a plus.

- Tubs and showers in outdated colors, or scratched from years of improper cleaning, might be hard to change without ripping out doors or walls.
– Popcorn ceilings date a house, you know, those bumpy ceilings that were so popular in the 1970′s.

Your first objective is to buy a home that’s right for you, but do consider its resale value before you make the final decision, especially if you know you’ll move again within three to five years. A careful purchase now will help give you extra funds to move up with the next time you buy a home.

Home Inspections

Depending on the type of financing you choose, there should be either 2 or 3 separate inspections on the home you want to purchase. The first should be your own basic inspection (see the bottom of this page for what to look for), the second should be a professional whole-house inspection by a reputable person. Should you select a government loan (FHA or VA), the third inspection should come at the time of the appraisal, which to some degree amounts to a “mini-inspection.” Do not, however, rely on this appraisal as your only inspection of the property!

We cannot emphasize enough the value and necessity of an extensive home inspection. Many home purchasers, either in the desire to save the $200 to $500 that a good inspection costs, or due to simple ignorance, have spent enormous sums of money repairing items that any good home inspector would have pointed out. Any offer to purchase you make should be contingent upon (subject to) a whole house inspection with a satisfactory report. Do not let anyone not the agent, not your family or friends, and especially not the seller, dissuade you from having the property thoroughly inspected! Not only will you sleep much sounder after you have moved into the house, a professional inspection can give you an escape hatch from a contract on a defective house. If the contract is written contingent on an acceptable inspection, any defects in the home must be either repaired or monetarily compensated for.

If you are not satisfied, you have the option to cancel the contract.
