Maybe you’ve seen the blog
Last week I got a sweet email from Megan at This & That Creative Blog saying she wanted to spotlight my settee!
It makes me happy that so many people have enjoyed this project of mine. I am very much loving the settee.
I invited my neighbor over (the one who sold it to me) to see the finished piece. She loved what I did with it and told me the settee belonged to her great-grandmother who bought it as an antique. I knew it had to be old because the carving is all done by hand.
In other news, the MADD Walk-a-thon is this weekend. My sister and her family are walking to raise money to help prevent Drunk Drivers.
If you didn’t see my post, Aunt’s Against Drunk Drivers, I share the impact on our family of losing my nephew, Kale to a drunk driver last February.
We are trying to raise $2,328 (Kale was 23 and Pawel, another soldier killed in the same accident was 28). So far, we have raised 87% of our goal.
We need about $300 more.
Frou-FruGal friends have helped us raise almost $900 of that goal.
If you have want to help support this cause, we are asking for a donation of $2.30, $2.80, $23.00, $28, or $23.28. Whatever you can spare, but please don’t feel badly if it’s more than your budget allows.
I know there are a million worthy causes out there. Mostly, I’ve ignored those causes and it’s not really my nature to campaign for a cause. However, I personally have been touched by tragedy. I see the hurt and loss to family and friends and loved ones of those left behind. It’s heart-breaking to see.
Drunk driving is completely preventable.
Besides trying to raise money, I’d like to add my personal plea to you.
Please don’t ever drive if you’ve been drinking.
Even if you think you haven’t had that much to drink. The risks are too high. The cost is too steep and the devastation is almost too much to bear for those impacted by the loss.
Please Help Us Prevent Drunk Drivers:
