Jocelin is a very special Maker to me because she is one of my closest and dearest friends and she has been through so so much. I have mentioned her a few times on social media because the last 18 months have been horrendous for she and her family.
As a small recap, in July 2020 she, her husband, and 7 children lost their home of 32 years to gangs. They threatened to kill her boys and her and her husband, and take her two daughters. So they fled to the country where we helped them build a new house. They lived there only 4 months before the Hurricanes Eta and Iota flooded their home in November 2020. Then tragically they lost their youngest son to a terrible accidental drowning in February 2021. How could it get any worse?
When I asked Jocelin one thing she could really use this holiday season she said she could use some food storage. As in they have enough to feed themselves daily but just barely. She would like to buy some rice and beans, powdered milk and a few extra items so they aren't living day to day. That's really not a food storage but more of just a little extra to have around to feed their family of 8. I thought allocating $10 a day for the next year would be a tremendous blessing. So buy a day of food for them or maybe even a week or two! This will bless this family tremendously!
Needs for Jocelin will be ongoing for awhile. However, if there are any extra funds during any of this time some funds will be disbursed to help other Makers like Jocelin.
