You need only to read a page of this blog to hear me gushing about my family and friends. And here’s a new reason: the incredible people at my workplace are organizing a benefit for me. The money raised will help me pay medical bills and essential expenses (ex. mortgage) while I’m living on a reduced income.
They are putting a ton of effort into the organization of the event, including a website and custom wristbands. The website is http://hopforhope.net. If you want to come to the event (in the Philadelphia area), you can buy tickets online. If you own a business and would like to donate your item or service to the silent auction, please contact me by leaving a reply to this post.
The fundraiser is helping me a lot – both financially and emotionally. It’s an unbelievable feeling to know how many people are here to support me while I go through this process. The website launched 2 days ago, and I’ve already received a few donations. It was SO NICE to open the mail today and know I could pay the bill!
I’m really looking forward to the event, and each day I watch the guest list develop from tickets sold. It’s going to be a melting pot of my friends from current and past lives. I will be surrounded by people who care for me, and it will be an awesome party!
