I’m a school teacher and am still working and getting paid. My wife runs a store and is closed. She is busier now with a lot of volunteering. She has sold masks and delivered them herself locally or paid for shipping so her artists can make some money. She and her artists have donated over $10,000 worth of masks to local and NYC first responders and essential workers.
Through all this she has also been donating time, food, supplies and more to our local HABCore to provide housing, food, and essentials to our local homeless veterans and others with special needs.
She doesn’t read HO and will never see this but I want to do something special for her birthday tomorrow. She has created a birthday fundraiser on Facebook with a modest goal of raising $200 for HABCore. I’d like her to surpass that goal.
Love you all and wish we were talking about having a HODown celebration.
Tyvm @tomt !!! Funny thing is that Deb called me from her errands and deliveries early yesterday to say that she’d reached her goal. I didn’t know that the goal was also a ceiling so I had to convince her to raise it without telling her why she was getting so many donations. It’s always a hoot around here!
