Hi! We’re probably overdue an update. In today’s update, we’ll focus on our missions. Mission 1: find the funds Mission 2: ready to sell Mission 3: find the house Mission 4: ready to move Thank you once more to everyone who is so generously helping us with mission 1 (find the funds). The fundraising stands at nearly £75,000, which is awesome. Over the last few weeks, we’ve been beavering away at mission 2 (get ready to sell).
Today promises to be quite an exciting day! We’re already off to a storming start, with a lovely article in our local news outlet: And we’re bracing ourselves, Sharon and I, for an interview at 10:30am today on our local radio station, Dee 106.3. You can listen online here. Check timing in your local time zone. Please do consider continuing to share our website and fundraising page with your contacts near and far.
Sharon and I had a great (nerve-wracking) opportunity to speak live on UCB2 this morning about special needs parenting and the ongoing campaign to raise money towards a home for Morgan. This interview focuses a lot on our faith and how it affects our story. If that’s not your jam, we understand, no problem. Thank you UCB and to all those who made this happen! We have some further possible opportunities to tell our story in the media - we’ll let you know if they come to fruition.
We launched the fundraising campaign yesterday, not at all knowing what to expect. We had set the target at £15,000, and that felt audacious. As I posted the links to social media, I was thinking something I’ve said to a few friends recently, as we discussed this idea: “Nothing ventured, nothing gained.” What did I think would happen? I wasn’t sure, but in my heart of hearts, I thought maybe we’d raise a few thousand pounds, and that would be amazing.
