short version of the story is this. he's a self-employed house painter married to a midwife. he is step-dad to her children, 4 of whom still live at home, one of whom is in a wheelchair, one of whom is non-verbal autistic (both of them will likely live at home all their lives.) he is also the adopted father of three children who came to live with them after their biological mother and her boyfriend were put in prison... the mother's boyfriend had thrown acid (used in making meth) on the children. jordan and his wife fostered the kids for a couple of years before being able to adopt them.

they're an awesome family. but jordan was diagnosed with hodgins lymphoma last month. so now he can't work, which means he is struggling to pay his insurance premiums, not to mention the chemo and radiation therapy that he is having to go under. and his wife is having to stay home to take care of him and the kids, which means she's barely working part time these days.

that's as short as i can get it. if you'd like to read more about them and see pics of the family, here's the link. it's a gofundme link. can i share it with the rest of the members? i don't really expect anybody would be able to help, but ya never know.

The only thing I see as a potential problem is that there might be numerous like requests.

If it is made policy that It must be run by admin/mods before posting such requests in the future.

Maybe made a Section all its own.  Like " Special requests" or something of the like.

I still don't see a problem with your posting it.

Once I start my job in a week or two and get my first pay I will chip in some to help out. Anything to help others out in need.
