As the Kindness Junkie, I am often asked to support various charities and fund-raising campaigns. While I want to help everyone, I know I cannot. Living with a chronic illness that involves crushing pain and fatigue, I don’t have the energy I once did, nor the financial resources.
However, when I saw a post on my friend Barb’s Facebook page telling us that her daughter’s home was broken into while she (a single mom) and her two young children slept, I knew I wanted to help.
My friend wasn’t asking for monetary support, she was simply asking for prayers, love and healing energy to be sent to her daughter and her grandchildren. I couldn’t imagine the loss of security this family must be feeling, let alone the financial hardship they were now facing. I felt compelled to serve.
My friend’s daughter was injured over nine months ago and has been living on disability while she undergoes multiple surgeries. She is a single mother, who has been struggling to pay the bills on two-thirds of her normal salary. She has worked very hard to make sure her children have everything they need and are happy, healthy kids. Life has been difficult, as both kids have medical conditions that require extra attention and resources.
The thieves took Mom’s purse containing her credit cards and cash set aside for Christmas and birthday gifts (both Stanley, 6 and Gabby, 9 have November birthdays). They also took Stanley’s bike and video game player with all of its games. Luckily something scared the thieves away before they could steal more or harm the family.
Their mom is the type of woman who would lend you her last dollar or drive you where you needed to go (even though she can’t afford the gas). She would readily feed you or help you if you were in trouble. Now she’s in trouble and needs all the help she can get.
I’d like to ask for your help in sharing this post to raise the vibration of love for this family. If you wish to also contribute to this GoFundMe campaign at any level (you can do so anonymously) please click here.
Thank you for your loving energy and support.
