Home for the Holidays?
In 2013, Aarron & Cristine Pina began renting a home for their children and their ministry in Cumming, Ga. Last week, their landlord informed them he will be selling the property and gave them 60-90 day notice. Great news around the holiday season, right? Not entirely...
While this threw them into an incredibly inflated rental market, they were able to find rental home in less than a week (WOW!) While the new rent is lower than much of the surrounding 20-mile area (WHOA!), they're STILL faced with an increase of hundreds of dollars per month in rent, PLUS all the deposits, changes, and financial add-ons of having to make a move.
The family already has Christmas presents for their kids - HOORAY! Now, the only gifts missing are the costs of downsizing from a small house to a much smaller townhome a few minutes away!
Aarron & Cristine both work for Seasons of Life Ministries, so if you're a supporter of faith-based ministries, directly donating to Seasons of Life will not only help them catch up on some back pay they're owed, it will also help them fulfill their calling in 2020 and beyond. To help them raise the $14,000 year-end need, go to https://pushpay.com/pay/seasonsoflifeministries , if you're not so sure about Jesus or just love the Pina family, feel free to help this family in need during this giving time of year to move from a small home to a smaller Townhome for the Holidays!
If we can raise just under $5,000 for Team Pina, they'll be able to handle all of the moving expenses and deposits and have room for all of the unexpected relocation costs AND keep their Christmas as merry as possible.
Need a specific "something" to grab onto?
Here's an incomplete list of a few things you could SPECIFICALLY sponsor:
• $1,200 security deposit;
• $300 pet deposit;
• $300 first month rent differential;
• $50 transfer electric service;
• $50 establish new gas service;
• $250 roll-off dumpster (PURGE TIME!).
Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to Aarron & Cristine Pina and their family, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your gift to this family that means so much to me!
HUGE CHRISTMAS UPDATE -
There is now a $1,500 matching pledge on the table. Any donations given from here forward will be matched dollar-for-dollar!
