So yesterday I posted a call for support. First of all, I want to thank each and every one of you who pitched in to the campaign started yesterday. The response was overwhelming. Much of the money came from people I don’t know at all which really blew my mind. I knew that I had quality friends both in my personal and professional circles (which really overlap or have no dividing line at all), but it’s so good to see that others felt the need to help this complete stranger. Of course, the expenses do continue to pile up but yesterday was a huge boost.
In short, we took in $1,950 yesterday. This is great because it turns out the car repair is going to be more like $850.00 (not only does the fuel pump need to replaced, but so do the tank and mounting straps) and, we also found some other “past dues” that are likely going to need to be taken care of.
So, I don’t have a lot of time to thank each person who donated individually, but I would like to thank you all. Every penny that has been donated will be going to this cause, but I do think that we’re over the crisis stage right now. Now it’s just a matter of coming up with the long-term plan and getting it put into place.
Awesome day yesterday, folks! You all ROCK!
