Well, here we are on the 29th day of September and I think it’s time to admit that I feel as though I have painted myself into a corner, particularly where this fundraiser is concerned meaning more than five months ago, I set a goal for this fundraiser of $3000.00.
I didn’t want to seem GREEDY because I am NOT. And it seemed a reasonable amount and would have been I think but I underestimated the time in which it would take to get this far. Also, I never imagined that we would still be unemployed or that we would still be struggling in the day-to-day .
There I said it!
Please realize that was really HARD to say!
A few weeks ago I was so discouraged that I felt like throwing in the towel, dismantling the blog and bidding my farewells to people who have become VERY important to me and crawling under a rock. Then I realized that by doing so, by giving up, I would be serving up a GREAT injustice to ALL concerned. And yes I realize there are many concerned, and I feel really responsible for the messages I send out to my readership.
Aside from the fact that it is just NOT financially feasible to just GIVE up now. Fact IS we still need you.
That being said, we have raised $2805.00 to date! SO YAY!!!!! We are so thankful to those who have supported us and continue to support us! And believe me, we still NEED continued support. At the same time I hope to make a difference to others who may be facing similar circumstances.
SO with optimism and a lot of needs left to reckon with, we continue on this journey to getting our life back. I ask that you try and forget that initial goal. The goal now is to become whole and self-sufficient again. Whatever that takes.
AGAIN … Thanks for patience, understanding, kindnesses and support.
YES donations are still VERY much needed and appreciated .
Please be assured that WE are still doing EVERYTHING and will continue to do everything in our own power to improve our own situation.
– God Bless
P.S. I took down our needs page because even I became OVERWHELMED in reading it.
But the short list for today is 1) mortgage 2) overdue electric bill 3) We are still living with plumbing and trash disposal issues. Again this is the short list.
If you’d like to help DIRECTLY with/to a specific need, please inquire. I will gladly provide details.
Thanks Again! 🙂
