First off, this is on the level, and not a scam of some kind. The Holidays often Bless us, but once in awhile, this season of generosity and kindness strikes a blow to friends that is harsh and unforgiving. My dear friend Kayden received bad news over the Holiday, and someone who means a lot to her needs help. Please read this, and if you can help in any way, even with something small, please do so:
Kayden wrote: Today I received some disheartening news. One of my good friends, Yvette, had been through a horrible Christmas morning. Her house burned down, leaving her and her family without anything over the holidays.
The Red Cross answered their call, providing them with housing for a few days, but her need is great, as herself, her husband and seven children are without housing or clothing, with the exception of the donations of good people like ourselves, that are willing to reach out and provide for a family in great need.
I ask on behalf of these wonderful people, if you could extend a helping hand: clothes for the young children, donations of food or money to get them through this trying time. Even five dollars helps immensely. I know you don’t know them, but Yvette is a wonderful person who has never done wrong to anyone, and she and her family deserve the best of holidays. I have known her for so long, and she is a reviewer at our review site, Siren Book Reviews. Her adoration for the written word made us fast friends, and I even had the chance to have lunch with her during a trip to Florida, with one of her delightful children when he was an infant. My heart goes out to them, and I hope yours does too.
Please share this post, and tell your friends! Please read the following information for donations. Tomorrow Yvette is going to go out and open a PO Box so I can provide an address to send physical donations. So please keep an eye out for that update. For anyone who sends a donation, I offer you one of my e-books of your choice.
Send me an e-mail with your chosen title: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yvette’s Paypal address is: email@example.com
UPDATE TODAY: Today, I have compiled all of the information for donations to Yvette Mathews-Lowe and her family. On Christmas morning, the family’s home burned down. For the next three days, they have somewhere to stay, provided by the Red Cross.
We are trying to raise funds and collect donations of clothes, toys, books, games and food for the Lowe family during these trying times. Anything you can afford to give is greatly appreciated.
Anyone who donates $5.00 or more will receive e-books of their choice from Kayden McLeod, Nikki Noffsinger, Denysé Bridger, and Lady Bee Publishing. Please contact Kayden McLeod once you have confirmed a donation at: firstname.lastname@example.org
