You did it, folks.

The day before Thanksgiving, Sabrina had the total at $7300 and change, received.

All of you are so wonderful. Thank you. Times a billion.

I'll keep updating you on Dave's story, and when hnmic can make it out there to show him how to work Livejournal, he may just come thank you himself.

***

There are other needs out in the world.

Our own rowangolightly is putting together a moving fund following some personal troubles of her own, through auctions of her own items & donated by friends, at rescue_rowan (run by fellow Friend of Save Dave apocalypticbob.) Lots of tasty treats and tasty books available, many available in time for $WINTERHOLIDAY gift giving.

britgeekgrrl, who is not known to me, but is known to fellow FOSD addiejd, has just (as in, today), lost her partner after a long illness, sooner than projected. Her friends are trying to raise money for his burial expenses. (I was going to go out to dinner tonight as a treat before exams tomorrow. I decided that was better spent elsewhere.) (Edited to add: the Internet has come through, yet again: see comments.)

***

All of us keep passing it on, around and around and around and around again.

A couple of days late, y'all - know I give thanks for all of you.

-Lizbet


Confidential to ladyallyn: got your message; need to find earlier email I sent you in own inbox; exams tomorrow, expect email tomorrow PM and sorry for delay.

Thank you so much for this post. Enough money (and then some) has been raised for Alex's cremation and there's enough left over to put aside for unexpected bills and some sort of memorial.

I've been absolutely overwhelmed by everyone's kindness.

Oh, darlin'. So very sorry for your loss, so very glad that we could ease the burden of the day-to-day to give you space to grieve it.

Love to you.

Seeing now that this is somewhat irrelevant, but for the record, it's britgeekgrrl. Just so that people don't get error messages.

Thanks so much for helping out britgeekgrrl; yesterday all but broke my heart. I don't know her, either, but like you, I felt that I had to help.

Thank you for posting about rowangolightly. We're working hard to get her moved from Tulsa up to KC.

Yeah, what blueberi21 said.

Getting a divorce for New Years is not quite what I had in mind for this year but you go with what you've been dealt.

Thanks so much.

Now back to work packing and putting up everything that I can for sale.

Help?
Any chance you would be willing to boost the signal on this?

Re: Help?
*ping* please don't forget about us... this family is in such dire need. Everything that can go wrong has gone wrong and it is one miserable money-related disaster after another. We haven't even raised enough to fill their heating tank all the way yet.

Any help would be so appreciated:
