Thankful Thanksgiving Day Thursday Message From Robyn and Mary

Dear pals,

Mario's mom here.   As Mario would say "WOOHOO."   We not only smashed through the original goal of $500, we more than trippled it.   Now for a message from our good friend, Robyn Harton (Typist for GeorgeTheDuck).

"Sometimes it feels like words just aren't enough, like there is simply no way to express something. This is one of those times. I wish I could give you a peek into my head so you could see just how much your help means to me. Suddenly being able to pay the overdue phone bill, and other physical things like that is enormous. I hadn't realized just how much I was holding my breath to see if my entire life would crumble until I got a chance to breathe, the one you gave me.  Just as much, it made me feel loved in a time where I've been feeling very bleak about everything including myself.  Your generosity floored me completely in so many ways.  I'm blessed with more reasons to be overwhelmingly grateful for Thanksgiving than I can possibly handle in a single day. My Thanksgiving will go on far longer than that. Thank you for everything."


Mary here again - Robyn you and your family have blessed all our lives in one way or another.  I think I can speak from all who contributed, we are so happy to be able to help you in a time of need and somehow pay you back for all the many hours you have put in on so many projects to benefit our community.

Jodie - Thank you for suggesting we do this fund raiser to help Robyn.  Without you spurring me on, I probably would not have tackled it alone.  Your many tweets promoting it are so greatly appreciated.

To The Donors - My personal thank you too to all.   I've said it so many times before that I'm sounding like a broken record.  But, our anipal community in the Blog World and on Twitter are always so kind, generous and supportive in time of need.   You are the absolute best.


Mary  and Mario

Everyone needs help at some point. I'm glad Robin allowed her blogger friends to help, and hope that this is the beginning of a wonderful turnaround in her situation!

I've previously seen this fund raiser. It has gone a long way. Good job, Mario's Mom.

I am sure your friend Robyn is very thankful for what you have done.

Awww, I'm so glad you guys helped. I scrolled down to the previous post to try and help too, but the link won't work for me! I tried copying and pasting it in the browser, and got a 404 error. :(
