Help buy a house for Christmas
Justin Tadlock started the campaign
Over the past couple of years, I've been searching far and wide for a place to call home. I just so happened to find the perfect place at the worst time of the year: Christmas. The down payment, closing cost, and other fees associated with buying a new home will put me in a financial bind because of the holidays.

I could wait for a few months to gather up the funds, but this house went into foreclosure, which brought the total price way down. It won't stay on the market for long. Not to mention, it meets every one of my own criteria for what I'm looking for in a home (just outside the city, close to family, fruit trees, gardening areas, more than enough space, etc.). It will be difficult for me to come across a deal like this again.

Therefore, I'm asking all of you to help make this one Christmas wish I have come true.

What I'll do for you

Because I don't like taking without giving back, I've made a list of items that I pledge to do.  You can, of course, not ask for anything in return.  That's up to you.

Contribute any amount:
  • I will link to your site or social networking profile on a public thank you page.
Contribute $25+
  • I will write an in-depth tutorial on a WordPress-related subject of your choosing.  Please keep this within reason.
  • If you're a friend/family member who lives nearby, I'll trade 1 hour of work, chores, etc. for every $25 you contribute.
Contribute $75+
Every $1,000
  • For every $1,000 in total donations, I will volunteer and answer 50 questions on the WordPress.org support forums over the next year. http://wordpress.org/support
About the home

Here are a few details about the home:
  • Built in 1930 (later added onto)
  • 1,400 square feet
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • Fruit trees
  • Gardening space
  • Just outside the city limits (Greenville, AL)
Please contribute to my campaign and help me have the best Christmas ever.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed.  I am now ending the campaign.  This will be a few days early, but you all have contributed more than what should be needed.  

Thank you.

I could only contribute a small amount, but I hope it helps.  Good luck to you!  I should have given a ton so I could get my house cleaned!  Merry Christmas to you!
