This is the fundraiser event we are having at the end of the year. Be a part of great cause and meet the Fukushima kids!
Last week after the great success of Support Fukushima Kids Day and 3 garage sales, I counted all the money including small changes and separated money for each event, put it in different envelope, calculated the total and then put all the envelopes in a large brown envelope.
The next day, that brown envelope disappeared from our house.
I am afraid it was stolen by someone who knows we were fundraising. I did have many strangers in the house for the garage sale as we displayed nicer items inside the house.
When I realize money we raised was gone, I cried like a child (have not done this for some time).
I sobbed for a few hours and was depressed for days.
I was so sorry and discouraged that I did not know how to tell all the friends who helped me to raise money.
They all worked so hard.
I am grateful for them and this is what I have to tell them?
The money is stolen now? I wanted to report how much we raised and how grateful I was.
But now that 7 children and 1 chaperon from Fukushima are arriving on Dec 21, 2013, in just 10 days, I have no time to cry but to do what I can to raise money for them again.
$2600 is a lot for me. I guess it is a lot for anyone when the money is not yours but it is the money for Fukushima Kids we raised together. So many people, especially mothers, worked and helped.
I am so sorry it is gone now.
Please help me to regain what I lost and support the Fukushima kids.
I am inviting everyone to Fukushima Kids Welcome Festival. Bring your friend and family as it is a free event. (I hope to have enough fund raised by Indiegogo)
