Oh dear. Its Advent 4 tomorrow and the Saint Laika Advent Appeal for 2014 is still quite a bit short of the target of £750.00 we set ourselves.
Not that people have been ungenerous. Far from it. Thanks to those saints of the internet tubes, Donna, Carol, James. Margaret, Sara, Mark, Noel, Susan, Andy, Christopher, Richard, Kathleen, Michael, Kenny, Randy, Bindy, David, Michelle and Mary Beth, we do have a magnificent...
... in the appeal coffers.
However, another £300.00 would really set me up just right for the new year. If you are able to help achieve this I would be extremely grateful if you could do so before this coming Wednesday when the appeal closes.
Here's the blurb:
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.
