We Need Help Turning Our Internet Back on While We Homeschool Our Kids! Please Help!

My Story:

My wife and I have six wonderful children together. The eldest just left home and is in school for nursing. The youngest two are a set of 4-year-old boy/girl twins and man do we have our hands full with them! On top of that, our 7-year-old is too bossy for her own good and thinks she's grown too. We're blessed to have all of our children, and we love them all so much, but our 17-year-old really keeps us all together. She has a wonderful head on her shoulders, and we're so grateful for all of the help she gives us. My husband and I do our best to make sure that our children find joy in every day because it's important for them to enjoy just being kids while they still can.

My husband and I work in oil and gas, and the pandemic has hit our industry pretty hard. We typically work from contract to contract, but every job we seem to secure has closed their doors shortly after. The industry is really struggling, but beyond that, we're having a lot of health issues that have kept us out of work. Last September, I wrecked my motorcycle and the injuries have been lingering and difficult to overcome. On top of that, my husband has been diagnosed with chronic heart failure. Essentially, his heart is pumping at about 20%, and he has blood clots in his lungs as well. Because of all of those circumstances, we've had a lot of difficulty with keeping up with our utility bills. In fact, we've had our internet services disconnected, and we desperately need help getting them turned back on.

We homeschool our five children, and it's impossible for us to do that while our internet is shut-off. Having them miss even more school time than they already have would be seriously detrimental to their education. We've been struggling for a while, but now we're starting to get healthy again, and I'm hopeful that we can find consistent work again soon. Until then, we need help making sure our children get the education they need.
