My readers asked for this fund to be established, many have benefitted from it, many continue to seek its help. Below, regular reader “Fiddleress” wishes to enlist your assistance
“As the comments on the Autumn – Distraction thread show, this season is a sensitive time of year for many of us. These comments are just the top of the iceberg, so to speak: many will not comment although they will probably feel the same about Autumn. ET rising. More need for support. Therefore more need for the Angel Assistance Fund. Christmas time might be even worse for some, and Spring is no better for many – another ‘in-between’ season, like Autumn.
As one who was raised in a family where we never knew if there would be enough money available to feed everyone for the rest of the month, I can understand how people might think twice about donating even $10. And I would feel awful about making anyone feel guilty for not donating at least that amount.
So I thought it could be an idea to tell everyone who is currently in a difficult situation moneywise that they should NOT feel bad, mean, embarrassed or ridiculous, about donating $1. Given the high number of readers here, if everyone donated just one dollar, it would mean that tens of thousands of dollars could go to the AAF, and this would mean that many, many empaths could be helped!
How about making one particular day in the month, every month, the $1 Donation Day? Let’s say the 18th of each month (just to spite my ex-narc for a start, since the 18th October is a bad anniversary for him!).
Regardless of how much everyone CAN donate the rest of the time, and preferably on a regular basis, I suggest we call on ALL readers, including those who do not comment, since they are the majority as I understand, to donate just one dollar on the 18th of each month, starting today
We are all getting invaluable information for free through everything that HG posts on this blog, and all the questions he answers here. One dollar is surely within everyone’s means. It costs less than a coffee anywhere – even in a French bar (1,30 euros), and much less than in any of those famous takeaways whose brands I will not advertise.
In a nutshell: IF you are in a situation where you cannot donate more, you ought to know that your $1 donation will be appreciated and will go towards helping those, maybe even you at some point, in need of direct help from HG. Which really is life-changing, as many (including myself) have already testified to.
Thank you for reading: you can really help make a difference.”
