The Saint Laika 2014 Advent Appeal

Mad Aid 2014

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.

If you would like to help me achieve this and, in doing so, keep Saint Laika's and its resident internet priest (that's me) afloat, please make your donation by clicking on the PayPal widget. You do not need to have your own PayPal account in order to send money.

You people keep me going and I love it that you do. The MadGang (Mrs MP, Delphi, Quiz and myself) really appreciate your generosity and your moral support. May God bless you as much as you all bless us.

  1. Jon, I can relate! My balence was down to U$A 40 the day before our social security check, such as it is and what there is of it, hit the account. Now we will run through a lot buying this month’s medications. 1 January, our drug costs leap up (oddities of the system) and our premiums for Medicare go up. Nope, no change in the pension income. We are literally being inflated to death.

    Ah well, we will fighre out something, and use your Amazon widget whenever possible for our Christmas shopping. We still manage some gifts for grandkids and children. 😉
