          Cost of Living

          December 13, 2011

          Imagine a life where every day you have to ask yourself, where is my family’s next meal going to come from, and how am I going to keep a roof over our heads? For one in six Americans, that is a reality. They are your neighbors, your friends, your children’s classmates; more people than you think are struggling to put food on the table.

          Fighting over Finances
          Mark and Margo say their family is barely making ends meet and often find themselves down to their last $12. And to make matters worse, their fights over finances are tearing their 15-year-marriage apart. How can they — and so many others — turn their misfortune around?

          “If I didn’t keep an eye on her, she’d spend every last penny I had.”

          More than 16 million kids in the United States are at risk for hunger each day. Fortunately, you can help. Visit Feeding America to find your local food bank. And, help Dr. Phil raise enough money for 10 million meals. Donate today!

          A Timely Tune
          Country music icon Ronnie Dunn’s new music video speaks to how the economy has left thousands of people out of work and struggling to survive. He performs his hit single, “Cost of Livin’,” which has become an anthem for many Americans.

          “When I was in Intensive Care, I checked myself out because I had to get home to take care of my kids.”
