Helping one of our own. Joanne Miller - easy way to help

UPDATE FRIDAY 1/13/2017
I have been sick all week, so maybe that is the reason I am feeling uncomfortable. BUT, we have had almost FIVE THOUSAND VIEWS but that has not translated into helping out one of our own. I am serious about the goal of $10K. That is the basic minimum that I wanted to raise to help Jo continue to have a roof over her head, with her dogs, while she gains her bearings.

We have stalled at 2/3 of the way. Can you guys renew my faith in humanity and kick in just $10 or $20 by this weekend?
200 people at $20 would do it
400 people at $10 would do it

Come on, I know we can make this happen, but we all have to work together. PLEASE HELP.

I am going back to bed, but I hope that when I wake up, we will see Pinecam do what it does best, Rally around our own.
Hugs to everyone,
Angela

**************************************************************************

Jo has agreed to let me set up a gofundme account on her behalf. This will make it easier for those that want to help.

If you are uncomfortable donating through GoFundMe, then read the updates under the image. It is the right tab. It will tell you other ways to donate.

Thank you so much for the link, Angela. :hugs:

Very glad you were able to convince Jo as it will make donations so much easier. :love:

(You must be a really good persuader :whistle: . . . or a really good nag. ;) )




P.S. You wrote a beautiful Intro on Jo's GoFundMe page. :nerd:

Gofundme charges a 5% handling fee. That is a phenomenally low percentage. You will be hard pressed to find any nonprofit that can provide services for less that 10% cost to raise a dollar. (I know this -- I directed one).

Thank you for organizing this and setting it up, Ang. :D

Thank you, Angela.
And thank you, God.
Whatever the question was, this is the answer
and I am so grateful that it is working out.

Its hard to type through my tears.
Ang is a force to be reckeoned with. Im so glad she likes me. Yes, koala, she wore me down. Resistance is futile when she knows she has a plan that works.

I am humble, and thankful and so deeply relieved in this moment. I have been struggling to sleep, struggling to feel, struggling to work.

This will let me just 'be'. For a bit until I get my bearings and can move forward.

To all of you, your prayers matter, they make all the difference. this fund matters in huge ways to my material and physical well being. I am just overwhelmed with gratitude. But in your prayers, I hope you know how loved and embraced my hurting heart is comforted. Jo
