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.
$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.
