It's been a while since I last updated you about this year's Advent appeal but your generosity has remained unstinting. The last time I added up the donations the total stood at £290.00. Now, thanks to those angels in earthly disguise,Donna, Carol, James. Margaret, Sara, Mark, Noel, Susan, Andy, Christopher, Richard, Kathleen, Michael, Kenny, Randy, Bindy and David, it has reached a magnificent...
This means we have passed the half way marker on our way to the finishing line.
However, we are getting very close to Christmas and the end of the appeal so, if you still have some money left and you feel so inclined, I really would be extremely grateful if you were to decide that now is the time to give a little financial sustenance to your local, internet priest (me).
Here is the blurb, every word of which is true.
Yes. It's that time of year again when I really do have to appeal to the generosity of my online friends. As you probably already know, Saint Laika's is my only ministry and my only source of income. Friends, who have stuck with me through thick and thin, regularly donate about £500 per month which just about keeps my head above water. Unfortunately, it does not cover the little extras in life. The biggest little extra of the year, as far as I am concerned, is Christmas; not just because of the festivity itself but also because most of the annual running costs of Saint Laika's fall due about now. I also try to use the January Sales to buy a few clothes to keep me going for the rest of the year.
So, every year at about this time I launch an appeal to specifically cover these costs and, every year, the response of my friends and supporters is magnificent. I am really hoping and praying that this year will be no different as, at this moment in time, I have just £8.00 to my name and my bank is turning down requests for payment of bills.
My target for this year is £750.
