{June 15, 2015}   Fundraising for Fertility

Thanks to my friend, Dayle, who agreed to be my sponsor, I am currently doing a fundraiser through a great website called Filltheirarms.com.  This site offers people who are in need of help with raising money for both fertility treatments or adoption meet their goals by providing them a site in which to share their stories and accept donations where you can keep 100% of your donations other than sites like gofundme.com, which take a percentage of them.

Dayle is a great friend I met through blogging about 4 years ago whom I have never had the pleasure of meeting in person, but we both share a love for writing and we share other commonalities that help us to get along well with each other.  It meant a great deal to me when she agreed to take on writing the fundraising letter for me and offered to help me come up with other ideas, so again, I want to say thank you to her.

So far, I have had 1 donation, which I am extremely thankful for, but I have a long way to go in earning money.  Insurance isn’t going to cover the fertility treatment, and sadly, my job is going through some changes and it’s been VERY slow, which means a LOT smaller paychecks.  I know some people would not agree to being so vocal about my infertility or asking for help from others, but infertility IS a huge issue and it’s time we stop stigmatizing it and making people afraid to talk about it. If you are unable to help financially, I won’t love you any less.  All I ask for is that you support me with your positive thoughts and/or prayers whether or not you are able to offer anything monetarily.

I am also considering using a site to make t-shirts that people can buy to support my cause.  Maybe something along the lines of “Sometimes miracles need a little help”, “Helping to fill empty arms”, “Praying for a Baby Hughes”, etc.  I just threw those out there from the top of my head.  Nothing is final yet.  Please comment here or message me privately on FB or through my email, Greeneyedramaqueen@gmail.com if you would be willing or interested to buy a shirt/shirts if I did something like this.  I will only do this if I get enough people who are interested.  If anyone has any other ideas for me and/or would like to help host a fundraiser, I would love to hear from you!

Hi Sharon – I have been mia from the blog world for a while and have to do some catching up. I am going back to read some of the posts I missed. 🙂 J



Hey there! It’s been a long time! I have been MIA off and on myself because of my job, which is doing medical transcription, but since we have lost some accounts, it has been slow so I have been blogging a little bit more lately to do fundraising to try to start a family! 🙂
