How to raise money in this economy?

Hello LJ Friends!

Many of you may have already read Fran's thank you letter...if not please do....it's long but worth it.

You can also visit Fran's Website

We need to raise $4000 more dollars for the next and most promising round of treatment. I believe this is possible. I believe it will happen. It has to. The question is how?

Seriously....I know that we have a huge network and if we all continue to pull together ...and get other people we know inspired to help out we can do this. I know $4000 is a lot of money but spread out among our whole big homo loving community I know we can make this happen.

If you can donate I can't thank you enough...if you can't can you please share Fran's story with someone who might be able to...passing the word is also very valuable.  I believe in the power of our community.

An Urgent Urgent Plea for help.

Soon we will be sending a thank you note to everyone that has donated towards Fran's treatment. We are so very grateful! We have reached a crucial point in Frans treatment. She has a picc line in place where she is receiving anti-microbial IV treatments twice a week. These treatments are approx $350 each. She was able to start this treatment only because of your generosity- now if she is to complete this potentially life saving treatment we will need your help again.
Please consider donating today. The funds that have already been raised have been used for treatment. I know the economy is difficult for all of us. I believe if we reach enough people that can make small donations we can raise enough to beat this. Please pass this on. Please help get the word out.
You can visit her site to donate or learn more about Lyme. www.helphealfran.org

You can also donate by visiting my profile page here at LJ where there is a link to a paypal button. This money goes into an acct that is only used to pay for meds and her doctor.

Other donation methods available as well..bank acct...etc.....we can be as creative as necessary so that she can complete treatment.

My Free Will Horoscope...hmmm

Virgo Horoscope for week of November 20, 2008
Verticle Oracle card Virgo (August 23-September 22)
I suggest you meditate on the theme of exile. Here are some questions to get you started. 1. Have you ever been shunned by people you care about? 2. Do you know what it's like to unwillingly leave a place that has made you feel safe and secure? 3. Can you remember the desolation that came over you when you found yourself wandering in the middle of nowhere? 4. Has it been a challenge to connect with your tribe or be at peace in the land that makes you feel at home in the world? Whatever your exile is, Virgo, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to figure out how to heal it.

$3100 so far!!!

You all totally rock!!!
We are more than half way there for the next phase of treatment!!!!
Our current total is $3100- that total accounts for the benefit and the donations made so far.
I can't express how touched I am especially during these really tough financial times.
I know I must sound like a broken record but please take this link and repost it.
The total shown on the wodget is not accurate because I just found this program- but it all goes into a pay pal acct that Fran is paying her doctor from. You guys rock my world and I will forever be grateful.
Please help get the word out.

You just select copy and paste the link anywhere you can paste HTML...websites, livejournal and other blogs, myspace, facebook.

Thank you!

a link to pass on... please repost.

Many folks have asked how they can help with Fran's Lyme Fighting Hella Pretty Army.

I have created this cool widget that you can copy and repost where ever you like. We need to raise at least $5000 so she can continue with treatment.
If we can get 2500 people to donate $3 it will insure that she can beat this!! We can call it Queer as a 3 dollar bill donation

Thank you thank you thank you so much for everything that has been done so far. Much love to all of you!!
