Goodbye August !!! Update!


Hello, nearly 6 pm here on August 31. Nothing is resolved. The mortgage other than $30 that I sent her the other day as a show of good faith , remains unpaid. The email flurry has begun and I am VERY much relieved about the fact that August is almost history. Even in the very best of times, the economy is at its worst in Florida. September, not only brings relief weather-wise but the snowbirds start flying back into town.

Anyway, Ron handled the last email, repeated what I already wrote and told her we would be in touch on Monday. The day is not over yet. BUT, hopefully that will end it for the day. Mind you, I am not holding my breath, but I can dream anyway right?

Anyway, YEP donations are still needed and greatly appreciated!

Thanks for all your kindnesses and generosity.

God Bless…

Saturday Morning , August 31, 2013


Well as of this morning, the mortgage remains unpaid. I have already responded to one email from my mortgage holders and I wait to see what happens next…. 😦 I’ll keep you updated.

I wish I had better news but that is the best I can muster at the moment because we are VERY much in a crisis situation.

Wishing you all a safe and happy labor day weekend.

Be Blessed.

24 hours LEFT to RAISE $ 431.87 for our mortgage payment.


And the prospects don’t look good at this point.

Our mortgage for August was due on the 16th. If not paid by noon tomorrow ( at the latest ) I will have to make the dreaded call to the people who hold our mortgage and all HELL is going to break loose.

It’s as simple as that.

The emails have already started. Today, the phone will start ringing off the hook. Since we began this fundraiser, we have managed to avoid hard feelings and pay each month until this month. PLEASE NOTE : $431.87 is the minimum WE NEED today. For those of you who don’t know, we are already several months behind and they agreed to work with us, as long as we managed to pay at least one payment a month until we can find a way out of this mess.

I am STRESSED already, just thinking about it. Not to mention, disappointed!

YOUR DONATIONS are BADLY needed and GREATLY APPRECIATED . If you’d like to contribute directly to this specific need, that can be arranged too.

PLEASE if you are able, ACT TODAY!

Otherwise, I don’t know where that leaves us but I promise one thing, this will be my last post of this nature! It makes me feel AWFUL! And I’m so sorry that I found it so necessary.

This fundraiser is by the far, the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. It was born in desperation and we are grateful for every last dime we received. In the grand scheme, the help we have gotten has been amazing! Truly.

It’s just heartbreaking, that we have come this far and can’t seem to raise the rest before it is too late. 😦

YOUR DONATIONS are BADLY needed and GREATLY APPRECIATED . If you’d like to contribute directly to this specific need, that can be arranged too.

Thanks to each and everyone of you who have supported us ( and have continued to support us) with this fundraising effort.

GOD bless YOU all!

Some how, some way!


I have to believe that this is all going to pull together for us. Yesterday we received unexpected ( but long overdue) money from outside of this fundraiser which helped pay the power bill that I was fretting yesterday . 🙂

Thank you GOD!

And the countdown continues … 3 days left in August , thanks to donations and what we have been able to do on our end, most of our needs have been met this month with one exception. the August mortgage payment remains unpaid. The amount is $ 431.87.

This is the minimum that has to be paid each month to honor a promise and to keep a roof over our head. It was due on the 16th. Our grace period ends on Saturday.

If not paid by then, they have promised to start foreclosure and I believe them.

They have been working with us for awhile now. I have written several articles on the subject.

If anyone is interested in helping with this, ( or any portion of this ) it would be greatly appreciated.

This can be paid directly to our mortgage holder through Pay Pal. We will gladly provide specifics

If you have questions, please ask.

Again, DONATIONS are STILL needed! We need to reach our goal.

Thank you all for the amazing support and continued support as we inch closer.

What a journey this has been.

Have a GREAT day ALL and GOD Bless.

Dire Needs and down to the WIRE again. … 4 days left in August …

bottle in the ocean

GOSH I really don’t like writing these posts. it’s getting harder and harder to do, but if I don’t ask, there is TRULY NO HOPE at all for us.. BOTTOM line WE ARE STILL STRUGGLING and WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP!

I truly don’t know what else to say because there are just so many ways to say it but we have come so far in this fundraiser and we can’t afford to quit now.

We have four days left in August. Our mortgage remains unpaid. AND TODAY, our power could be shut off for lack of $71.00.

In 4 1/2 months we have raised $ 2,195.00. It has helped and we are so thankful for those who have come forward ( some again and again) to support us.

I truly don’t want to sound ungrateful! Because I am VERY GRATEFUL .

BUT we still NEED to raise another $805.00, like YESTERDAY !

Please help us reach this goal!

Donations are still needed and greatly appreciated!

Thank you ALL so VERY MUCH!

Have a BLESSED day!

So VERY close now, and the count down continues…


5 days left in August, $ 805.00 dollars to Goal! This goal seems so elusive sometimes.

But I know it’s not impossible.

We are at a critical stage in this fundraiser as deadlines are closing in AGAIN. The pressure is building. 😦

The BIGGY is the mortgage payment in the amount of $431.87 which was due on the 16th and remains unpaid.

That being said, your donations are still needed and very much appreciated!


PAY PAL is PREFERRED for a couple of reasons. 1) Funds are transferred in REAL TIME giving us immediate access. 2) My mortgage holders have an pay pal account and I can transfer directly to them from my pay pal account. 3) The donations are easier to keep track of with their statement system.

Thank you all for your support and continued support.

God Bless…
