Only a few days ago I honestly believed that there was now way the Saint Laika Appeal 2014 would achieve it's target of £750.00. But now, even though this is the last day of the appeal, I think that there is every possibility that it will. This is because the total raised to date, thanks to my good friends, Donna, Carol, James. Margaret, Sara, Mark, Noel, Susan, Andy, Christopher, Richard, Kathleen, Michael, Kenny, Randy, Bindy, David, Michelle, Mary Beth, Chris, Tim, Dora, Jonathan, Jay, John, Huw, Andrew, June, Joan and Margaret, is now a whopping...
So, if you have done all your Christmas shopping and still have a bit of cash left, why not make sure Santa has you on his list of good girls and boys by sending some of it my way today.
The good news is that, due to your generosity, I have already been able to buy Mrs MP's Christmas present, buy the Christmas food and cover some of the costs of running Saint Laika's. Any money I now receive will be spent in the January sales on clothes for Mrs MP and myself, an annual event that is, believe me, most necessary.
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.
