I am reaching out to my website friends and followers right now in an emergency situation, and I must forget about my pride and dignity here in order to do what is best for my family (we have two daughters, 5 & 7 years old). I had a sudden unexpected loss of income a while back and have been working full time in the entertainment industry, as well as a second job. However, we have fallen so far behind, it is extremely difficult to get caught up with the urgent necessities such as water/trash bill, electricity/gas bill, and our car payments. Through faith in God and hard work, I know that there are better times ahead. If anyone can help us, please email me at alan.baltes@gmail.com. I will pay-it-forward as soon as I possibly can. We are greatly appreciative of any help at all, and may God Bless everyone who reads this whether or not you can help us. Also, here is the link to our fundraiser - https://www.gofundme.com/Feher-Baltes-Help

Sincerely,

Alan Baltes & Family
