Before I share the awesome goodies that have been popping up over in the flickr group, I have to tell you about the last couple of days!
Before I knew about Lily, I was at home, my head stuffy as can be, feeling a bit sorry for myself that I didn’t have the energy to get up to my sewing room.
One phone call and a couple of text messages from my sister changed all that. There was a kitten, abandoned and injured that needed a home and medical attention. My sister and her husband would take her home.
I wanted to help, so I started brainstorming…what could we do to help this baby cat? How could we raise the kind of money it was going to take to get her on the road to wellness? My sister and her husband are doing the amazing part, taking her in and giving her a home and making sure she receives she love and care she needs.
I would help with the money, that’s the easy part. I checked my pockets, and a few moths fluttered out. So much for that.
Enter you guys…
Help Lily (post 1)
Lily Update (post 2)
Fortunately for me, I have AMAZING friends and am a part of online communities that always come through when needed. Since Saturday night, we have raised $465 of the $2000 Lily needs, which is simply AMAZING.
To help make it the rest of the way to our goal, my fandom friend suggested that I have an auction on Livejournal, something that happens from time to time when there’s a good cause or friend in need. With their help, encouragement and participation, I’ve started Love For Lily:
Donations are still being accepted on Lily’s behalf, right at Love For Lily. As a bonus, fun handcrafted items, supplies and more are being offered for the highest donation “bid.” As of this post, we have Harry Potter fabric, a custom crochet scarf, a Molly Weasley sweater (made to order), custom graphic logo design by a professional graphic artist, blown glass art, and custom fan art!
You can read all about how it works here. Any funds earned past her actual surgery amount will be donated to the Humane Society of Williamson County, Lily’s new home county in here in Texas.
