Getting On Our Feet (Solo Dad & 5 Kids)

Project 2021-08-19 17:45:44 +1200

Hey guys, Solly here! I've just recently become the full time solo dad of 5 kids all under the age of 10, the youngest being 7 months and also severely disabled (doctors believe he has an ultra rare condition called Allan Herndon Dudley Syndrome). After sharing my story on Tiktok, the wider community has asked me to set up this campaign to help support my children and I get back on our feet after a long and difficult year.

Hey guys, Solly here! I've just recently become the full time solo dad of 5 kids all under the age of 10, the youngest being 7 months and also severely disabled (doctors believe he has an ultra rare condition called Allan Herndon Dudley Syndrome). After sharing my story on Tiktok, the wider community has asked me to set up this campaign to help support my children and I get back on our feet after a long and difficult year.

The things we are struggling to cover is:
Repair of our rough 2nd hand van which is compact, but currently managing transport of my family: $500 (new tires and servicing).

Paying off the van so we have lower weekly expenses: $3,400.

Anything raised over and above this will be put aside to save up a deposit to get my family into our Forever Home.
On that note, I have been approached by a very kind person who has offered to match, up to $35k, any contributions given towards purchasing a house that my family and my disabled son can live in for the rest of his and be fitted for his unique needs.
As it were, there is a large and modren ex-church hall that come on the market for $350k in the middle of town with a huge amount of land and sound building.

Background:
My name is Solomon (Solly), for over a year I have been going through family court to get my kids back and at the end of July, all my of my children (9 year old boy, 7 year old girl, 5 year old boy, 3 year old boy and 7 month old boy) came back into my fully time care.
Prior to this, I owned and operated my own cafe/arcade in Timaru, but have left that life to look after my children and my disabled son who will require 24/7 care for the rest of his life.
This has been a very rough time for the children and myself and we just want to get back on our feet and start living an as normal life as possible again!
