I need a bit of help. Those of you that have known a while..friends, blogie friends, folks who know me for a very long time..most of you know asking for help is hard for me. Cancer tends to change that. I find myself gratefully all be with a little difficulty accepting help, meals and visits from amazing folks..it has been a huge blessing for me and well…one of those lessons I had to learn. So today I am asking..
The added two weeks of heavy duty chemo has thrown off my schedule all the way around. But hardest hit was my financial plan. It put off going back to work part time for several weeks and thus the first paycheck nearly a month. So my sister and I were throwing around ideas about this..I know lots of folks put donation buttons on their blogs when they get into difficult spots like this. I guess I just wanted to offer something back. So this is what we decided. I am going to do a couple of raffles. I have several of my original art pieces... ones that I have especially liked over the years. I would like to offer them up as thank you. Larger ones not the little baseball card size ones. Full pieces of work. Although I might add an extra ACEOl treat at the end.
So here is the deal…for every $5.00 you donate to help me keep my apartment, car and phone running and food on the table for my kids..I will add your name to the pot for the piece being offered. Share it on your Facebook page and I will add your name again. The raffle will run ten days and at the end my sister Barb will draw a number out of her hat and I will send the piece of artwork off to a lucky winner..international includedJ
So here is the first raffle of the springy piece above..starting right now..and ending April 20th at 4pm Pacific time..
1. for each $5.00 you donate your name will be added in the hat..if you share on your facebook page I will add it another time (please let me know if your link does not show up on my FB page..add a note here:)
2. International is fine and I will cover shipping costs:)
3. The donate button is on the right hand side of my blog at the top.
Although this is hard for me to do..please know that it means the world to me that you are here and supporting me. If you can and want to help…that means the world to me too. Hugs all
