Good Morning –
Several people have asked ( and I know it must be on a lot of others minds ) so I will address it.
I began this fundraiser, and this blog more than four months ago because we were desperate. The fundraiser was never meant to make us rich, OR relieve all of our worldly debt. And TRUST ME when I say… it hasn’t. It has helped on many levels and we are so very GRATEFUL, not only for the monetary contributions, but for the relationships formed, etc. !
In a perfect world, we would have had one full-time job between us by now. That was the plan.
Sadly, it hasn’t happened.
BUT, believe you me, we haven’t given up.
And no I don’t just sit here all day, raking in those donations. Nothing is further than the truth.
The VERY act of survival for those in our position is a FULL TIME job in itself.
When one is worried about where the next meal is coming from, or how to get to a next interview with no gas in the car, keeping the lights on and so forth, it’s really hard to concentrate on anything else.
A lot of work goes into this maintaining this blog.
But besides, I’ve decided to DUST off my web design skills as a viable means of support.
I have been working on a pro-bono project ( meaning I don’t actually get paid ) in the hopes of freshening up an old design portfolio, as well as revamping an old web design site.
Now I love designing and I am pretty good at it. And for those who might be interested, I work really cheap! 🙂
CHECK IT out if you have time! The projects are still a work in progress. And I actually hesitate putting it our there quite yet but growing excited.
And then, a few days ago a feisty young woman ( and she knows who she is) suggested Amazon Turks to me. This site allows you to do piece work for thousands of industries and get paid for it such as Write a blurb, write a product review, do survey’s, online research etc.) I registered but have not gotten the green light to start working it. It’s not a huge amount of money but even dabbling at it would help with day-today incidentals.
I should get the go ahead soon. But then they hold the first pay out for ten days
I’m working! 🙂 Truly!
So with all that said. I implore upon you NOT to give on us YET!
Donations are still needed and greatly appreciated.
