operation buy my first home
I'm not typically comfortable asking for help, but we all could use a little help from time to time and we shouldn't be too proud to ask for it! So friends, family & co-workers I'm asking for your help on this one! My name is Crystal, I am 35 years old, and I've decided to make the dive into adulthood and purchase my very first home! I've lived in Wilmington, NC for the past 13 years, and as much fun as apartment living has been, I've decided to put my hard earned money into something that I get to call my own, instead of putting it in someone elses pocket. I need to be out of my current apartment on September 4th, so that gives me about 70 days to get my down payment together.I've been working 2 retail jobs tirelessly to support myself these last 13 years and unfortunately it hasn't allowed me to stash away very much money for a down payment and closing costs. Thanks to the mortgage broker I'm working with, she has shared with me this new and exciting program called homefundme. For every $1 that is donated to my down payment fund, homefundme lenders will contribute $2. So a $20 contribution equals $60 after being matched. How awesome is that!? Your funds are securely deposited into an escrow holding account and are wired to the seller when I close on my house. I know this is asking a lot, and like I said before I hate asking for help(especially when it comes to money) but I would so appreciate any amount you could donate to help me get my very first home. It means the world to me that so many people are behind me in this new venture in my life. Thanks in advance from the bottom of my heart. xoxo

We have been married now for 7 years, together for 13 and are starting a family. Our baby is due March 24th, 2019. We could easily afford the payments, but are having trouble coming up with the down payment. We are currently following the Dave Ramsey plan and are about to start Baby Step 3B, and would like some help getting over the finish line. With this assistance we plan to purchase some property, large enough that our traveling families will be able to hook up RVs and trailers when they come to visit. This will also enable to have Solange's father to be closeby while having his own separate space, giving him the ability to be near family when he's home, but also to go on the road to preform his science shows as The Science Wizard. We would like to purchase within the next year to save us the high cost of our house rental and to give our growing family a place to put down roots.

there’s no place like home
Terri and Randy met when they were 15 years old, and from the start become good friends. It wasn’t until after high school when they began dating. Soon after they realized they wanted to spend their lives together. Through every challenge life has thrown, Randy and Terri have remained faithful and strong. They continue to build their lives together, and have added two fur babies to their family. They would love to continue to grow their family, but with growing your family comes the need for more space. Space has always been an issue for them, Randy with his studio and Terri with her sewing and painting. Many times they’ve had to compromise between either having a living room or having a studio. We are asking for your support as we continue to grow our family and would love your help with raising funds for our first home.

Tyler and I are getting married on our seventh anniversary of being together! Seven has always been my lucky number! Tyler and I have known each other since 1996 when we met each other at our dance studio! We grew up as dance buddies and I always liked him, skip to the end of High School and I was off to college and he was off to dance in California. I thought I was never going to see him again. Skip again to 2012 when I ended college and Tyler had come home from California. We met up and reconnected so quick. I was so happy to see him again and I knew I still liked this guy. We started dating shortly after and it has been an amazing adventure since. We are so thrilled to be entering into this new chapter together!!! We are now getting ready to get married, we are also working on finding our first home! This campaign will help us by having people putting $5, $10, $20 ( any amounts helps) dollars in our account and it can add up for money for our down payment. This is an amazing opportunity and we thank everyone for helping support our dreams!
