One of the neatest parts of this blogging "thing" has been the community I've found. There isn't much of a foster parent network where I live and I haven't connected with any other families that foster. Well...there are a few families that I know. But they are really just acquaintances, not friends.
The internet however has connected me to some amazing people!! Comments on the blog are wonderful! I've gotten emails that have touched my heart and lifted me up just when I needed it. I've spoken on the phone with a friend during one of the darkest parts of my fostering journey and gotten amazing support. And I've even got to meet some of my blogging friends in real life!!
Y'all are awesome!!!
Recently I had an internet friend step forward with another fundraising opportunity for our intervention. This one is just as simple as the puzzle too. Buy jewelry.
In a very generous way, Heather has offered to give me 30% of all sales. Simply mention me (Cherub Mamma) when you make a purchase and she'll send 30% of the earnings to our intervention fund. If she could manage to sell all of the jewelry in her mom's collection, that would mean as much as $1500 toward our intervention. THAT WOULD BE HUGE!!
Her site is SparkleJewlz.blogspot.com. She opted to put things up on a blog so she could avoid paying fees on Ebay or Etsy. This way all the money earned will go straight to our families.
This isn't some big business or fancy site. It's just a daughter trying to help her mom out as they go through their own struggles. And, moved by our story, she wants to help my family as well. I am blessed by her generosity! The community I've found through this blog never ceases to amaze me!
