East Granby Woman Avoids Foreclosure With the Help of Friends and Facebook

An East Granby woman was close to losing her home after falling behind on mortgage payments while she was unemployed.

Joan Wright-Lee found a new job but needed to raise $6000 to keep her home.
That's when her friends stepped in and created a website soliciting donations online. And through the power of Facebook, her story has been shared around the Internet thanks to her Facebook friends who posted her website address on their profile walls.

Wright-Lee spoke to WNPR's Lucy Nalpathanchil about this unconventional way to avoid foreclosure.
