Even as I type this I am incredibly speechless. On Sunday I shared that we had made it to 44% of our goal for this upcoming trip to help cover the costs. I was honestly blown away by so many people's generosity, many of whom I have never met!! Less then 24 hours later we were at 100% of our goal and now almost 48 hours later those donations are still coming in.
I want to say a huge and humbled thank you to all that have donated such an amazing amount of money. Some of you know how very difficult of a financial time these past months have been and how overwhelming this trip seemed. My heart is truly overwhelmed by the amazing support that I have received. I have cried, my family has cried, and we have prayed the Lord's biggest blessings on you and your generosity. Thank you so much for your generosity and your kindness during this very difficult time. In a week that has been overcome with tragedy in our world (from Nepal to Baltimore) I am amazed once again by the kindness of friends, family, and strangers. Thank you so much for all of your support: financially, physically, and emotionally. Thank you. These two words do not convey the depth of my gratitude. May you be blessed by the Lord for your kindness.
P.S.- My family and I have received several emails, phone calls, and text messages asking if you can still contribute to the "go fund me" page even though the goal has been met. Our humble answer is "yes". The total cost of the trip and treatment is approximately $4050 (you can see the breakdown HERE) and the "go fund me" page was set at $1000 to help cover those costs. Any additional donation is humbly and gratefully welcomed and accepted. Again, words can not express how much your kindness and compassion means at such a difficult time.
