Hi dear family and friends,

It took a lot of nerve for me to create this fundraiser.  I don't usually ask others for money, for I have been financially independent for more than 5 years now.  But as you know, after my brother Cairo passed unexpectedly last month in April, I was in no way whatsoever to return back to work immediately.  

Although I am returning back to work on Friday May 30, I will need help with my bills that are due now or early in June.  I am doing my best with trying to stay grounded and not grieve so much, but it's been really difficult-- my brother was my heart, I never imagined this could happen so soon.

In the meanwhile, of course the bills don't stop while we grieve.... I've incurred NSF fees, late fees, negative bank account balances, and late notices.  My bank agreed to post-pone my June car payment, so I'm really thankful for that.

I've learned many many spiritual things after my brother passed. But in regards to the lessons about money, I've learned to be sure to have at least 1 month's worth of savings for the unexpected, because you never know what may happen in your life that will put you in such a crisis.

I truly understand that everyone has bills and everyday expenses, so I am truly grateful for whatever amount ($5, $10, $20, or other) you can donate to help me.  Please do not hesitate to donate whatever amount you can at this time.  As a matter of fact, if everyone whom I sent this message to contributed $5, then I will meet my goal.  I will be so thankful to see my first donation.

You do not have to have a PayPal account to donate.  If you wish to donate with a credit card (or debit card with Visa or Mastercard logo):

  1. Click on "Contribute"
  2. Select the amount and click "Continue"
  3. Click on "Pay with PayPal," a screen will come up with the message "Connecting to Paypal"
  4. At the bottom near the credit card logos click on the link that says "Buy as a Guest."  You then will enter your name, address and credit card information from there. 

Your financial information is not saved anywhere or exposed to anyone.  PayPal processes the payment and uses encryption for security.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, you can post it below or call me at (919) 576-7654, email me at Laurieartis@gmail.com, or send a private message to me on Facebook.

Thank you all so much, I am very grateful for your help.  With love and blessings, Laurie
