The Magnificent Fundraising for Mark

Posted on 2010.09.17 at 09:16
Current Mood: hopefulhopeful
Current Music: Dr. Phil on TV

There is a man in my town who has a story that many of you will relate to as being all too common in this world today.
His name is Mark, and he worked as a landscaper, but was laid off due to lack of business.
He could no longer afford his apartment, and so lives in a tent in the woods.

When the incredibly beautiful soul earthspirits heard of this, she said to me, let's do a fundraising. I'll contribute some of my art, you contribute a copy of your books, you can ask some others to join in, and we'll see if we can get this guy some money.

The response was overwhelming. So far nine (edited - 10 nope 11 -) people total have joined in to offer art, books, or jewelry.
I think alot of people feel as I do... the helplessness to do much for others in this economy is wearying, and it feels GOOD just to help ONE person. I think it helps the people who give, as much as it will help Mark. :-)

And so, with a grateful heart, I begin this adventure. I'll be adding to this post, as people send me more information, so keep checking!

All profits go directly to Mark, handed to him by me, so I can be sure he gets all of it.

Payment is either by paypal or a check to me (the paypal email is essielittleflame at cox.net, and you can email me there for my snail mail address if you want to send a check.

And so without further ado, I give you:

Absolutely! Do you have a link where people can see them? :-) and how much are you charging for them now? xo *I love mine*

Will this be going on for long? I would love to get something to help Mark, but it would have to wait a couple of weeks.

It will be here :-) xox

I want to HELP!!! Sadly, I am pretty useless except when crafting words, and I don't have any of those published to donate :-( :-( :-(
I can help by buying though!
Can I buy/reserve the print "Gaia's Angel"? (earthspirits) And do I send the $ to you? Is a money order ok? If there is any other way I can be of help please please tell me!

elfinecstasy at 2010-09-18 16:43 (UTC) (Link)
You are the LEAST useless person I have ever ever known, dear one
and of course you can reserve the print, and yes a money order is fine, and yes send the $ to me when you have the funds and I will cash it and add to what I am giving Mark.

I should have known you'd like that print ;-) It radiates YOU - (and I love it too :-) :-) :-) :-) )

I promise to post - with maybe a photo? - when he gets the $

This is a great idea!

I would love a set of runestones. Do I just send the money and indicate that's what it's for?

elfinecstasy at 2010-09-19 19:28 (UTC) (Link)

Re: This is a great idea!

Sure :-) You can pay me by paypal, essielittleflame at cox.net is the email to use, or private message or email me for my snail mail address if you want to send a check, and I'll get the money to Mark.
Please can you email me at the above with your snail mail address too, so that elven_ranger can send you the runestones?

What a great gift you have given. HUG.
myrhiann at 2010-09-19 21:02 (UTC) (Link)
This is such a generous idea of yours. I wish there was something I could contribute, but alas, nothing of substance. I also wish I could buy something, but Paypal is a total mystery to me, all I have is a bankcard.
Ever Deepening Rapture
elfinecstasy at 2010-09-19 22:01 (UTC) (Link)
Your prayers make a big difference :-) and are the best gift of all

A money order would be fine, but I don't know if that's available to you? No worries if not, Flame Sis :-) HUG

Re: I would like to help...

Thank you so much! You can paypal as soon as you're ready. The prints were mailed to me from Greece, but there was some mix up and they were returned to ladyithildiel who has just re-mailed them to me - it may be a week or two before I get them and can get them into the mail for you. But I will get it in the mail as SOON as I get it, please can you re-send me your snail mail address at essielittleflame at cox.net? xo

marilavado at 2010-11-30 12:14 (UTC) (Link)
E-mailing you now. =)
