To all my generous Angels:
I hope none of you take this personally, but, wow, there are really a ton of crowdfunding sites: gofundme, kickstarter, indiegogo. Seems like everyone is hooked up and (I guess) they are perfectly legit. Of course, there are assholes. (There’s a site called gofraudme.com that digs down and finds the ripoffs, hustles and scams.) Everything decent eventually becomes corrupted, but I won’t judge. It’s too easy. How did people get money from others before the Internet came along? Work? Sure, yes, we work, but suppose I need dough for a medical emergency? What if I can’t work? Like now? Really, I can’t work. Out of the question.
Every time someone dies friends and family set up a funding page to cover “expenses”. Burial expenses? That stuff costs, sure, but consider cremation; it’s cheap and efficient.
Literally thousands of families seek decent housing. (Check it out.) They have bad luck (who hasn’t?) and need a safe and healthy place for their six kids to grow up. And the kids need iPads. Please give. My suggestion would be to cut down on the breeding, but, again, trying not to judge. So far so good.
Plenty of young men and women have sure-fire ideas and solicit capital to jumpstart a company, provide a service, build an app. Great; good luck, but I can’t donate to your modeling career or help to promote your crappy rap CD.
Many of these petitions are somewhat successful, no matter how ridiculous. A certain kind of person asks and certain others feel inclined to give. Ask for $10,000 for stuff we all do (pay bills, get out from under all that debt, take a much-needed vacation, buy Christmas presents) and chances are that you’ll get a few grand, at least. It’s a start.
My Angels: I’m in need of a vintage 1969 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 6.3 Liter Sedan. My current vehicle is not dependable, needs servicing, and I require reliable transportation in the probable event that I may someday have to travel for complicated medical treatments. The stress of not having this particular Mercedes-Benz has been generating inflammation that is deteriorating my overall health. The cumin and lime cleanses are no longer effective and I’ve had bad experiences with high colonics (!). Anxiety is increasing and I haven’t had a decent night’s sleep in months. I fear the worst.
If you can find it in your heart to donate to my upcoming gofundme page, I will offer prayers, love, light, hugs, and good thoughts forever. If you can’t give, I will try to understand. It will be difficult to avoid judging you, but I’ll try. You are all my sweet Angels. God Bless, Namaste, Abundance, Divine Love.
