This darn economy has affected so many people. One of the hardest things I can thing of would be to loss my job right now. One of my blog fiends, Vixen of Vixens Den, has been dealing with just that issue since January. I can’t even imagine the stress of looking for a job in this economic climate. She has been looking for a new job, with no success at all. Then to make maters worse, she ruptured a disk in her back and had to have surgery. She did qualify for assistance, but still had to pay her portion. Where the problem, comes in, is that during her recovery, she can no longer receive unemployment.
To make ends meet, she had been selling aprons she makes, at her etsy online store. Now her doctor won’t let her sew, so she can’t do that either. Recovery from back surgery is one of those things you don’t take any chances with. We all know that food is not free, let alone the numerous other expenses associated with owning a house. They moved into their new home a few months back after qualifying for a first time home buyer program. It’s not large or extravagant, but it’s theirs, and the banks of course. I remember the post when they first got the house, Vixen was so excited to be a home owner. The problem I see is, what good is a house if you can’t eat. People have to make some pretty hard decisions these days.
We can help though. Vixen has put a donation button up in her side bar. So if you can spare a few dollars, please help a fellow blogger in need. If enough people make a small contribution, we might be able to pull them through this recovery period. So if you can spare it, and have the time, go by Vixens Den and leave a little present. As a community, which is what I see bloggers as, we can’t let a neighbor down.
