Crowdsourcing Kindness for “Jack & Diane”

Hi, I love you. Really, I do, and if you’re here reading this then you are officially part of my community, even if you’ve never commented or liked anything I’ve ever shared or posted, you are here, and you are special and wonderful and I’m so grateful for you, all of you…
Also, I need your help. More specifically, I’d like for ya’ll to help me help my neighbors, Jack and Diane. (Ok, that’s not their real names, but that’s what we shall call them for now)
Sweetest little young family, ya’ll. They have two babies. The oldest turned 2yrs old a week or so before their youngest was born, and he’s probably about 6weeks old now. Jack is a carpenter, furniture refinishing, I think, and Diane is a stay-at-home mom. They are kind-hearted, and overwhelmed, and have very little if any, help or support from friends or family. They are homeowners. And, ya’ll, they need all the love.

What I can say is that their struggles (like all of ours, in fact) are so much more common than we think. We all feel or have felt alone in our pain, and also, we are so easily convinced of the terrible lies our minds tell us, because that’s how humans work, sometimes.

I realize what I’m asking and hoping to get accomplished for them won’t solve all of their struggles, however, I do believe it will help lift their fog, a little, and that’s important.

So, here’s what I want to see if we can get accomplished… it might seem like a big ask, or maybe it doesn’t, I don’t know. I’m not even sure how to go about all of this yet…

They have this adorable little playhouse for their 2yr old. Unfortunately, the current state of their backyards makes safety an issue. I’d like to help make their backyard a safe place for their growing family. I’m not exactly sure the best way to go about helping… Organize a day of volunteers… if we could get enough people to bring weed eaters and chainsaws and mowers… and a way to haul off some stuff, that’d be awesome… or maybe you want to help but would rather donate materials or monies… that’d be cool too… or maybe you own a lawn/landscaping company and would be willing to donate time…
I’m open to suggestions, ya’ll…
