Maggie Maggie Maggie

LIVE From the GNB Blueberry Pancake Desk...

Yesterday was GREAT. Way to go and thank you!!!

On Day One of the Maggie Jo fundraising, we got one-quarter there.

Y'all subscribed major: $200, $100, $50, $20, $10, $5, mix and match.

Today's a new day, bright and shiny.

We have $450 in subscriptions to go (not counting the $800 monthly GNB core.)

This covers Maggie's rent, food, electricity, medicine, phone. Her essentials.

There's no car payment. Maggie can't leave her apartment. Disabled.

I'm often asked during fundraising drives, what amount is the right amount to give. My answer is always the same. For every person there's one right number, a perfect number. You know what it is.

  • It's not so big it hurts.
  • It's not so little it's meaningless.
  • It's right there... Sometimes it stings a little.
There's one perfect number. You know what your perfect number is. *smiles*

When you give your number, life gets very perfect. Because you're telling the truth about how you see the world financially.

Please subscribe your monthly number: $200, $100, $50, $20, $10, $5, mix and match.

In the days to come as we take care of Maggie, I'll talk with you more about the Art of Fundraising. How it works, how to raise funds for the organizations and people about which you care. How to help people find their number.

We're one-quarter of the way there. Let's see what we can do today.

What we're asking for is SUBSCRIPTIONS, monthly committments to help take care of Maggie Jochild who is without work. Her blog is at Meta Watershed, along with her beautiful novel Ginny Bates.

Again, $200, $100, $50, $20, $10, $5, mix and match.

The holidays are a time for giving. Please subscribe generously.

Love to everyone. *smiles*
