CASA

YTDAW is raising money for CASA in Jorja's honor!




As I am sure many of you know, we had a bit of money leftover after the Dollars for  Sense Campaign to Keep Jorja on CSI.  As fun as it was to come up with the gifts and slogans we sent to TPTB, our hope was always that we would be able to donate a portion of our funds to a charity where it could really make a difference.  At Jorja's request, we are giving the balance of our account to CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).

On a very personal note, I have to say that after all the time and energy that I put into this campaign, I could not have gottena better gift than to have Jorja select an organization that is so close to my own heart.  I work with CASA on all of my children's cases.  My CASA's job is to speak in court on behalf of my kids...and I have to say I have been very lucky to have wonderful, caring people on my team.  I have welcomed these people into our homes and our lives because they give my kids a chance at an actual stable future by making sure "the system" remembers they exist. 

We are very close to our goal of donating $5000, and I'd just like to get the word out a bit more, so feel free to tell all your friends.  :-)


If you would like to check out the thread on YTDAW...here's the link:

If you wish to donate, click here to go to my post at YTDAW, and press the white donate button.  (I am not clever enough to get the button to show up here!)

Thanks for reading this!  And I just want to take a moment to thank those of you who already gave.  Please know you are helping to make a difference for children in our foster care system, as well as the foster parents who care for them.

And I promise, after this, I'm totally going back to writing fan fic!

You are one amazing person, D. :-) I have so much love and respect for you. How close are we to making the goal? I know all I've done is send $$ via DFS to CBS, I haven't donated to you yet. My paypal is empty at the moment, but I can always send you a check or a CC#.

You know I am everyone's worst nightmare at YTDAW! Oh no, dangerlove wants money...again! I am honestly just trying to get like $5 from anyone that is willing. I still have no idea how exactly I got into this...and what was going through my head when I was all $5000--that's my goal!

Anyway...I think you can send an e-check or CC me through paypal. I can check the options for you if you want...but if you log in to your paypal account and go to Send Money it should walk you through it.

And if your boys ever are doing a fundraiser for school, and you need someone to buy wrapping paper or fudge so they can win some funky toy--I'm your girl! :-)

LOL! Well, we're done with fundraisers for the year -- I really do NOT like fundraisers, I think it puts too much pressure on the kids; I'd much rather just donate $$ to the school or provide materials myself -- fundraisers just provide like 10% of the take-home to the school anyway.

Anyway. CASA -- I'm going to see about paypaling you after Joey's home from school. I have to go wait for his bus now, so it might be around 5 before I can get back online, but when I do I'll check about the CC thing. It'll be coming in from dave@davenavarro.com, just FYI. :)

At first I needed to make my donation and now I can tell you what a wonderful person you are. I know, I´ve already told you that I admire your work and in particular your enthusiam and all your energy you put in your work and projects. I need to highlight it again and again. You´re one of the smartest, most generous, niciest, selfless,...(I could add a lot more) persons I allowed to get to know.

I love you from the depth of my heart,
yours Heike

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I´ll make another donation next month. You know, it is the end of the month end the money is ...what I want to say that "at the end of the money there is always so much "month" left" :D Well, I presume, you got what I mean.

HUGS, Heike
