Fundraising effort

I just got an e-mail from Bubba's Mom... Now I don't have 2 penny's to rub together and it just KILLS ME that I cannot contribute to this effort.

But I figured "What the hell it couldn't hurt"...

Here's the E-mail I got:

NOW I AM SURE YOU ARE WONDERING WHY I AM SENDING YOU A LETTER SO PLEASE DONT ERASE READ AND THEN ERASE IF DONT WANT TO HAVE NO PART OF IT,,,

STEVE IS IN 8TH GRADE NOW AND IS A GREAT STUDENT AND CHILD HE IS VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT SCHOOL AND LEARNING AND THE GOVERMENT AND SO THAT IS WHY THIS IMPORTANT.

PLEASE THINK REALLY HARD AND DIG REALLY DEEP BEFORE MAKING YOUR DECISION NOT TO HELP!!! THE TRIP IS $ 800.00 AND HE WANTS IT SO BAD SO HERE IS THING I TOLD HIM WE WOULD TRY OR BEST AND COME UP WITH AS MUCH AS WE CAN AND THEN I WILL COVER THE DIFFRENCE. SEE ANYTHING HELPS AND EVEN $ 20.00 OR SO DOES ADD UP!!!!! PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN AND IF SO PLEASE RESPOND SOON TO THIS SO I KNOW IF CAN DO IT OR NOT,, AND HE DOES HAVE A DEAD LINE TO PAY.!!!!!!

PLEASE MAIL CHECKS TO STEPHEN NARDI OR SANDRA JARVIS
AT *EDITED OUT*

THANK YOU AND PLEASE IF YOU CAN HELP DO SO IT IS FOR A GOOD CAUSE THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THIS CHILD DESERVES AND WANTS AND I KNOW THAT IS MY JOB AS A PARENT TO MAKE IT HAPPEN BUT BEING A SINGLE MOM WITH OUT ANY HELP FROM THE FATHER MAKES IT REALLY HARD TO DO SOMETIMES

THANK YOU
SANDRA


SO if any of you want to contribute to his school trip, you can make the checks/money orders payable as stated above and send them to me and I'll mail them to Sandra (Since I don't want to plaster her address in my journal.)

Mine is:

D. Sanders
3418 E. Sycamore Avenue
Visalia, CA 93292 USA

Thanks everyone, I know things are tight all over, and apart from me standing in front of the grocery store with a coffee can I thought I might try to raise Bubba some trip money here. Nothing spells a great "D guilt trip" than getting messages like this from family and NOT being able to help.

I'm just crushed I can't send him any, he's such a great kid.

Re: Ish canadian
Uh, no. I wouldn't be asking if I did. And seeing as he lives 2500 miles away from me too, it's pretty much impossible to do anything but send money.

and right now $20 is a lot of money for me too.

Hell if 50 people chip in $1.00 it adds up.

Sandra was asking FAMILY and throwing out a random figure. I certainly didn't read it or perceive the pleas as $20 or nothing. Just a generic "please help if you can".

When is the deadline?

I'd love to something but it'd have to wait till I get paid next.

Like needed in THEIR hands in about a week or two at most I'd assume. I don't know.
