Started Indiegogo Fundraising: Inviting Fukushima Children to a healthy respite in Hawai'i

This is the first time I ever try this. I do not know how it works, but I have a reason to raise money for Fukushima Kids even more so than ever.

I am inviting you to a public event to meet the kids. Bring your friend and family as it is a free event. (I hope to have enough fund raised by Indiegogo)

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 and calculated the total and put them 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.
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?

But now that 7 children and 1 chaperon from Fukushima are arriving on Dec 21, 2013, I have no time to cry but to do what I can to raise money for them again.

What is gone is the money, $2600, but all the love and care I received for Fukushima Kids is intact. It is still with me and that is important.

$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.

Mahalo for reading my blog to the end. Your support is invaluable.

Now i am so scared if it will reached to next level then i will completely unable to afford medical expenses because it will be 500 times costly. Currently my economical condition is so bad i am already strugling for my career & due my disease i can do long time work. I need money for Healthy fruits, fish, eggs & milk in my every day routine + medicine charges. I already take $500 debt and now i have to paid it. I sold my laptop and return $200. I can join any office now because i can work continually 4 or 6 hours. I am web developer if i got money from you guys then after medical & food related expenses i will take a laptop and work from home. This is what i just can from home.
