My wife and I are your typical homebodies. When not at work, we like to spend our time alone and at home, either gaming, watching movies, or reading. We have a very small but close social network of family and friends. I used to be fairly active here, but are and responsibility has kept me from being active in any online forum in years.
I became very sick in July of last year. We tried to keep my illness as private as possible. Through the help of a personal loan and smart budgeting we managed to keep our heads above water, despite me being unable to work since becoming ill. Circumstances have recently changed and we are now floundering. Without help we face financial ruin.
We swallowed our pride and started a gofundme campaign yesterday. However as I stated earlier our social network is very small. It has become clear that we need to broaden the reach of our campaign, and that is why I am here.
If each of you could share our campaign with your friends and loved ones, I'm sure it will be put in front of many caring, compassionate people.
I literally don't know where else to turn at this point, so I came here. I am a gamer. My wife is a gamer. It only makes sense for us to reach out to the community we feel we are a part of. We know the gaming community can be some of the most compassionate, understanding and giving people on the planet. I thought about trying to approach some youtubers and streamers, but I'm sure they would be too busy to help, let alone read my request.
So here I am, hat in hand. Please consider supporting and sharing our campaign to your friends and loved ones. We will forever be in your debt, and be thankful every day for your generosity.https://www.gofundme.com/support-anthony-and-megan-meixner&rcid=r01-155009739695-93e0d8afc40548c7&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_m
