Thanks to you good people, I was able to wire my friend ample cash to get to her safe place. She's leaving tomorrow. I told her I will keep collecting for her until Wednesday, then send a check with what I get between now and then to her new home.
I am kind of speechless at your generosity. So is she. I am sure you will all be hearing from her soon.
I will get your jewelry orders out to you just as fast as I can pack them up!
God bless you!
Sorry, this will necessarily be sketchy. But I am trying to raise some emergency funds so that a friend of mine can rent a car and drive from the Midwest to the West Coast to escape an abuser. Everything is in her partner's name and she needs no-strings-attached cash so the partner can't trace it.
She and I googled our hearts out last night trying to find a shelter for her, but none of them could or would take her dog, and the dog is currently the target of escalating physical violence and she won't leave her behind. Her friends across the country can take her in, but she has to get to them, first.
Cole and I are absolutely strapped at the moment, with paying Ivy's rent and groceries, plus our mortgage and the mortgage on David's place. But anything I can raise selling my jewelry is off-budget. 100% of anything you buy between now and next Wednesday will go to my friend's gas fund.
Thanks in advance!
P.S. I haven't been able to update the jewelry site lately due to hardware problems. If you see something you like marked "SOLD" don't hesitate to email me. Maybe I can duplicate it or make you something similar!
