Today, instead of focusing on what the needs ARE, I want to focus on what the needs WERE .
Back in April, I posted the first item on this checklist . TMI? I am sorry! But this was the REALITY.
The one thing I failed to mention early on, WAS that the last month before I went public with this, I was actually IMPRISONED in my own home for almost a month. Not because I wanted to live like a hermit, but because I could not face the world in the state I was in. NOBODY should have to live like that. I felt like a caged animal.
I am reclusive to a point in my nature anyway, but ad a bit of misfortune to this AND I was toast.
Things were so bad at that point, I couldn’t even think about goals, or the possibility of actually making any real progress BECAUSE the immediate needs were so GREAT! 🙂
BUT we’ve come so far! Slowly as we moved out of our crisis situation ( AND YES, I mean CRISIS) , I could actually see and assign a monetary goal to this fundraiser which was ( and still is) $3000.00. This amount will in no way solve all our financial woes BUT it will definitely release us from our overwhelming burdens that are still on our plate. PLEASE SEE our NEEDS page
As a direct result of this fundraiser, $1,245.00 has been raised to DATE.
WE ARE MORE than 1/3 of the way there! Be assured, your contributions have made a REAL DIFFERENCE for us.
As an indirect result, other things are beginning to turn in our favor.
Like the ability to get to and from appointments, interviews. In effect, opening doors to agency assistance that we were shut off from before, simply because we couldn’t afford the gas to get to them. Let alone, being able to show up with any kind of respectable presentation. Even washing our clothes had become an issue.
Again, we’ve come a long way BUT still have a ways to go!
Your DONATIONS are STILL needed and GREATLY appreciated!
Thank you all so very much!
We are so very GRATEFUL for your kindnesses, support, following, sharing and friendship!
