Help Family of 10 Replace Old Leaky Roof

Campaign Created by: Martha McCann

The funds from this campaign will be received by Martha McCann.

Goal: USD $25,000
Raised: USD $ 300

We live in an old 1840s farmhouse that is in need of a new roof. The current roof was not done well and is old, and it has several bad leaks. We were thinking of selling our house and finding a property with more land for farming and gardening (we have a .75 acre lot) but did not get much interest at our listed price of around 100k. We decided to take it off the market and focus on doing the repairs here as we're able. The leaky roof is the biggest and most pressing issue, so we're changing our campaign from raising money towards a new property to raising money for the roof repair. Thanks for considering helping us out! -the McCann Family

In the process of trying to sell our house, we learned that there's more value here for us than for an investor who is looking for a quick and easy flip. Our house is in much better condition than most fixer uppers, even though it does need many repairs. It is livable for us, and we're able to have a garden and small animals. The people who looked at our house when we were offering it for around $100k thought it was worth much less. Though we would love to have more land, it doesn't seem doable to sell our house for less and find land with a house at this point, based on observing the properties available on the market since last Spring. Since we have 7 children already, moving into a small shed also doesn't seem doable. In the light of all that, we decided to take our house off the market and do the repairs needed as we can. We're getting a roofing estimate in the near future, as that is the biggest and most pressing repair needed. We're changing our campaign goal to be raising money for a new roof. I'm setting it at $25,000 for now. We're very thankful to have a house that is all paid off and excited about focusing on what we're able to do with the resources we have. Thank you for considering helping us by donating, or praying and sharing!
