Please Help My Friend Bury Her Mother

Please Help My Friend Bury Her Mother

RIP Ms. Omanni
There's no easy way to segway into a conversation like this, so I'm just going to dive straight in. This past week my best friend lost her mother. As you can imagine, dealing with a loss such as this can be devastating. Having to handle the financial burden of burial costs and every thing that comes along with an unexpected death of a loved one can be crippling. And to do it all while you're in your third trimester, trying to take care of yourself and your young daughter while worrying about whether or not you can give your mother a proper burial is heartbreaking.

I've known Te'najia for years now. She was there for me when I was going through some of the darkest times. She has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know and has always been willing to go the extra mile for someone else. Even complete strangers. Today, she is the one who needs our help. Her mother didn't leave much behind and now Te'najia needs our help.

I know donations can be a tricky thing. Especially if you don't personally know the person you're donating to, but I know Te'najia, and right now she needs our help.  Every dollar counts. Even if you only have one, it is one dollar that will go to helping my friend bury her mother and it will be sincerely appreciated.




If you'd like to help, there are Four different options.

1. You can donate directly to the fundly account she has set up for her mother
2. You can send her money to her husbands paypal address thundermug18@aol.com. Please remember to send the money as a gift so that they are not charged for the donation. Even if you only have $5.00 to give, I promise it will help.
3. Anyone who donates $10 or more will get TWO month of free sidebar advertisement with me, including social media touts and stumbles. That's $5 per month for a blog that gets 1000+ pageviews per day. A win-win for all involved. If you're interested in this option, simply send your donation via paypal to thundermug18@aol.com and let me know and I will personally place your ad on my sidebar.
Today's stats as of 5:00 p.m.

4. You can purchase an item, or two, or three from my friends store. The very lovely Heather from Gemini Red Creations has agreed to donate 50% of proceeds from any items purchased from this album directly to Te'najia. The photos below are a sneak preview at some of the jewelry from Heather's shop. Take a second to click though and check out some of her work. If you'd like to purchase something from Heather's shop, just leave your paypal email below so that she will know to donate that money to Te'Najia and her family.



I've seen the blogosphere come together a do amazing things for people in their time of need. Now is our chance to do something for someone who truly deserves and needs it.

Once again, we thank you for any donations you can make.
