Help if You Can

I received several emails since last night, one was particularly moving. They all suggested I add a link for people to donate funds through PayPal for me to purchase the curriculum and class to teach Love and Logic. (It is quite obvious on the top left side of the page.) I hate to ask for anything. It about kills me to ask for help, I always think I can do it on my own, somehow. This isn't something I can do and I have exhausted all the resources I can think of so I am taking their advice and coming to you all. Please do not feel obligated, I know money is tight for every one.

This is important for our future, I must find a way to earn money but I can't take a regular job with all my kids needs. This I can do a couple of evenings a week and on Saturdays. I have already lined up several organizations willing to let me use their facilities and promote my class. This is something I have done in the past but not with the Love and Logic Curriculum. It is something I am good at and enjoy. I have always taught the classes for free. Using Love and Logic will allow me to charge people and help them parent in a more effective way. The only thing standing in my way is the money.

I have seen other bloggers ask for help and have no idea if it worked for them or not. I am hoping at least someone finds it in their heart and pocketbook to help me in the slightest way. I am also offering my first born to the highest donator. (I can't have children so it's not really an option, don't worry I am not selling or giving away a child.) I promise I will not use it to purchase drugs or a yacht.

I donated as much as I could spare, I hope you soon get enough to buy and teach!

I read the latest on your other blog, hope everything goes well for you and your family!


(I'm btw, so you know whose reading your other blog!)

Finally, you're letting me do something concrete for y'all! I can't make a donation right today but my student loan comes in on October 1 (I think) which is Wednesday. As soon as that happens, I'm SO there!

I did pretty well with the Paypal donations on my blog but of course a big chunk was from my dad. But I sure hope people come through for you!

Sorry for all the trouble you are having. I think the paypal thing is a great idea. How much does the curriculum cost? Can you do a little goal thermometer to show us where you are at...or just post updates. Hopefully we can make a dent in the cost...

I just sent a little, but I'll be contributing more :-)When do you need all of the money by???

Lorie, when I get it I get started. Of course, now that my DH has run out of work and he has no idea when his next check will come, I hope to hurry.

Thank you all so much!
