I have been pondering a dear friend's financial dilemma for a while now, and after some emails back and forth,  I am joining with Linda of Parker's Paradise 
in an attempt to help raise money for our wonderful and caring friend, Angie Stevens of Just a Lil Raggedy.

Angie has been experiencing a roller coaster of problems - personal, physical and financial.  She is having back surgery for the second time in two years.  Her car blew up last week and she is having to give up her home and move into a very small apartment soon after surgery.  Angie will not be able to work outside the home ever again.  It is still to be seen if she will even be able to sit at her sewing machine to create...the outcome of this surgery is unknown right now.  We are all hoping, praying and putting our faith in God to ease her pain and suffering.  
If you know Angie, you know she is a fighter!  She's a wonderful Mom to her sweet little Princess, a great creator and would help anyone in need without even being asked.  Right now, though, she needs OUR help!

What can you do?

(1) You can visit Linda's blog, browse her pages of sale items (she has 4 pages up so far) - buy something from her, even if you don't need it...perhaps buy it as a gift for someone...ALL money raised from Linda's sales will go DIRECTLY to Angie!
Follow the link above to get to Linda's site

(2)  You can also head on over to Angie's blog (see link above) or visit her Facebook Page to take a look at her downsizing sale.

(3)  You may send to me, via Paypal, a small donation, which will go into an account for Angie.  I will send her the monies collected every Friday via Paypal, so that she can access that cash asap!  If you comment below that you wish to make a donation, I will then contact you to give you my Paypal addy...for obvious reasons I do not wish to post it here.  

(4)  You may also like to pass the word about our fund-raising efforts.  Link up my post on your blog or Facebook page, so that others can be made aware of our efforts.

(5)  You may want to directly send Angie something....a gift card for groceries or other supplies, or simply a check, money order or cash.  If you wish to do this, please comment below, and I will contact you with Angie mailing address.

(6)  You may join  in the fun, as I auction off one of my creations....I will be posting about that auction tomorrow, so please check back then!

Please look into your heart and ask what you can do to help Angie....

Thank you!
May God bless you.
