Above the inside cover of my new journal. I'll show you the finished part tomorrow.
I've never done anything like this before but the past few months have been extremely difficult for a family friend. She lost her job (as a teacher) in September. Her husband has been very ill and unable to work for a long time. They have two year old triplets. She has been able to scrape together enough money to pay her mortgage but is barely getting by with everything else and the kiddos are still in diapers. She's been trying to get heating assistance and there's an 8 week wait.
We've known M for 19 years. My sister, Erin, met M when she was 15. I want to say that M is a good kid but she's 2 years older than me so it feels weird saying that but she's always been a good friend and the past few months have been really hard. I've always wanted to sponsor a family for Christmas but have never had the money myself so I thought that opening up my blog for a few days before Christmas might be a good way to help out M, her husband and their babies.
I'm going to leave this button up until noon PST, December 23rd. After that, all money collected will be given directly to M and her family. If you're on the South Shore area of Boston, MA and want to give any gifts or food, you can email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net or if you want to send a check to M, I can pass that information along as well.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
