Go Fund Me – Do These campaigns Really Work?

GoFundCollageWe are starting this GoFundMe campaign to raise funds to help our family buy a piece of land or hopefully even a house in the greater Los Angeles area (looking to stay within 60-90 minutes of Hollywood in any direction).

This is an opportunity for you to help us with a donation of $10 or more to create a more sustainable future for ourselves and in turn, allow us to continue helping others.

I have tried many routes over the past two years. I have applied to countless positions. Something in my efforts just isn’t getting us a step ahead on the road we are looking to travel. The stress and frustration are wearing me down so I’m reaching out to the global community for help. Please consider donating to this campaign or offering other services that will help. The basic advice of “use more keywords” isn’t working!

Please send me an email or post useful ideas or resources in the comments below but most importantly share this post! No one can help if they don’t know it exists.

I am asking for help on multiple levels:

·         A donation of your time as a positive mentor (non-secular approach please) to help me regain a positive outlook on life

·         Are you a super sharp savvy employment recruiter or resume wizard who can help me land a great career position in an Executive Assistant role?

·         Monetary donations of $10 or more to help us secure a safe place for our family to live in the greater Los Angeles area (our family includes those that bark, meow and a couple that hop!)

·         A donation of land (1-5 acres; our furry family is large), a barn, an RV/camper or house would be a dream come true!

·         Gardening supplies so we can turn a piece of the land into a garden to allow us to be self-sustainable and share with our community to help others in need. I am looking for seeds, plants, fruit trees, tools you would like to donate and down the road – you! Garden experts to come lend a hand and play in the dirt with us.

I am asking for help in these areas because it’s been nearly 2 years since I was laid off from my job of 8 years when they closed their California office. In the process I lost my home and we have been temporarily living on a family member’s property in the raw desert outside of Las Vegas. Dust, coyotes and rattlesnakes oh my!

My son has already graduated college and is on his own. However my daughter is in middle school so we are in the home stretch to maintain those honor roll grades as we approach college application time. You can help us get back to an area where education is a stronger focus and she can continue to hone her track & field skills in preparation for a bright future.

I have more than a dozen years’ experience in healthcare and seven years’ experience doing freelance work in the entertainment industry. My last two employers offered me paid relocation. Since the layoff I have only been able to secure an entry-level type office job that doesn’t come close to offering a living wage.

The property we have been living on is being sold and time is of the essence.

If you are able to donate $10 or more today, or offer your time it would go a long way to help our family. Please post our link on your social networks or send to friends who may be able to help with their time.

If you help us to become more self-sufficient, then I will be able to continue helping others even more than we have in the past. I strive to live a green life, donate my time, supplies and money to animal and human causes.

I would like to be in the position again to compost the garden leftovers, share fresh produce from my trees and garden with my neighbors again, and even more so, expand that idea to a community garden and give greatly to those need.

And as always, I will be helping animals in whatever city we end up in.

Please consider helping me so I can in turn help others down the road.

I will post updates here on the blog or share them from the GoFundMe website.

FREE Cat Food Sample UK


Purina One, a Nestle company, currently has an offer open for a FREE can of their new Purina One wet cat food formula. This freebie is only open to residents of the United Kingdom. You can visit the Purina UK site here to sign up for the sample pack of wet or dry cat food. You will need to register for the site, or log in if you’re already a member there. I love getting these sample packs here in the USA because they usually include some nice high dollar coupons for future purchases.

We’d love to hear about any current sample promotions or links to great printable coupons that you’ve come across recently in the comments below.

Taco Bell is currently offering a FREE taco to customers who ‘like’ them on Facebook. Go to Taco Bell’s Facebook page, click ‘like’ and go to the ‘free taco’ tab to print your coupon!

Clorox is also offering a great deal via their Facebook page when you ‘like’ them as well. Go to the Clorox Facebook page, click ‘like’ and go to the “Clorox Home” tab, then click on the “Products & Offers” tab and scroll to the bottom to print your coupon for $1.00 off any size Clorox product. The travel size wipes often retail for about $1.00 so you may likely score a free product with this deal!

Greenies also has two great coupons going on their site for pet dental health month. Both offers can be found on their site here – one coupon is for $3.00 off the large-sized bag when you ‘like’ them on Facebook. The 2nd coupon is a great one they often have available, buy one get one free, any size single Greenies treat. Greenies are available for both cats & dogs and our pets love them! Finicky felines come running when they smell them and the dog chews them up in the blink of an eye. Best of all, they are supposed to be great for your pets teeth!
