You see with Hurricane Sandy that has obviously hurt us in many ways, especially financially. (Not to mention the unlivable house.)
So after explaining the situation, he authorized the most awesome thing ever.
Two four day passes for us. For free. Which helps us financially and it gives us an incredible weekend of happiness and fun to look forward too.
Which is something we need so badly.
We are so excited and blown away by the generosity.
We are very thankful for this as it is just so nice. Having something to look forward to makes things easier.
New York Comic Con is seriously the best convention ever!
(Sorry Brickfair, but NYCC has you beat.)
We have nothing coming in for the house that Aleks’ grandfather lives in. This is the main reason we are raising money and have been to a handful of town meetings to get the Town of Hempstead to actually apply for federal help. Overall the town has been pretty useless. Hopefully we can get some change going on.
The main issue right now is in regards to FEMA. They pay for rental assistance which allows us to a have a roof over our head. Or at least they are supposed to be paying for that, but they are fighting and being difficult and at one point they had the gall to say we didn’t have any damage from water. The tons of photographic evidence we have disagrees with that.
Needless to say FEMA has only paid out for 1 month plus security deposit. We’ve managed to scrape by as we hope for a payout but things are getting very dangerous and close to when rent needs to be paid. We have been on the phone constantly trying to make things happen but…. Things are getting close. We are still asking for donations to help, once FEMA does come through donations will continue to be used for Aleks’ grandfather’s house.
We are still working on getting permits to actually have his house torn down. The town and various organizations we need permits from have been very difficult to work with in this regard. The town can actually make a lot of money off it if they tear it down themselves and charge us.
The ripout has been done on our house however no progress can be made for rebuilding until we can find out what money will be available to us.
Once again and continuing from earlier we are asking for donation of anything to help us. Thank you very much!
