ALMOST THERE !! DONT GIVE UP!!

$2,125 of $3,250 goal

Raised by 28 people in 39 months

I am Carla Olson A.K.A RockLuvr57.  This is my username on Ebay/Etsy/Facebook. There I run an online Lapidary home business, called "Rough N Ready Rock N Gems." I have supported myself and many grandchildren in this way for 27 years now.

During 2015, I lost my nephew, Glenn and my son/grandson, Toni.  Despite my focused efforts, the grief caused me to slowly lose ground in my business & go into debt. 
                     UPDATE !!
My grandaughter had started the gofundme account to get our business out of debt & hopefully to accumulate enough money to get us back on solid ground.  
The celebration you see in the picture here is my great grandbaby Saniyah saying "Yeah ! we made it !"
Thanks to all the kind donors here, my grandchildren & my hard work & finally one compassionate anonomous soul that chose to give us a check for the final $4500.00 . it took to finish off The debt !!  ~~ MIRACLE #1
THANK YOU all & bless everyone. ~

We are still though, NOT out of the Dark.

During the course of this gofundme I have been in the hospital twice with a recurring chronic condition that is, at my age now, life threatening.

The GOOD NEWS  is that THIS time I got myself to the hospital early enough to be put through a 4 day process that was painful But it worked!!   I was able to avoid the surgery that I most likely would never have woke up from. ~~ MIRACLE #2

The BAD NEWS is that While I was there my truck ~  which is the heart of our business ~ was a victim of a hit-n-run while parked at my grandson's job parking lot.
So we not only need the seed money to get the business back on solid ground but I now face recovery and the $1100.00 it will take to get the truck out of the shop. 
 
So I am asking once again for everyone to STOP, Take theTIME & POST, FORWARD & generally Help us to continue getting the word out to others who can then continue to REPEAT the same process. It is our only hope now.
 
I want to Thank you all for your attention. No donation will be too small. Without this help our lives will change forever.

Carla, Camille, Nunu, Toni, Theo, Anda, Jade, Chrisitan, Glorious, Saniyah, Raamir.

We as you all know DID get the debt I talked about paid. But the last amount that we needed to get things back up n running properly Including paying bills that I could not pay while getting the emergency handled never came through. THEN the Hospital for myself and a hit n run on our truck. The heart of keeping the business running. I am asking you not to give up on us. Please. Just POST, FORWARD and/or SHARE anywhere that you can. Some may not have seen it before. Some may have intended to help but later. Some may be in a better position now. PLEASE we need the help. I am still trying to recover & cannot stop working to do it without a leg up. THANK you ALL from Carla & kids....

SO MUCH LOVE & LIGHT!
We are 1/4 of the way there. This has bought us another month.
Christian (my grandson) has quit school (with their blessing & a plan) for 2 months to work full time so he can give the money at home. Also ~ the other children whose names you see here; Arianda, Glorious, Camille, Swisher, etc are all doing what they can.
PLEASE SUPPORT US. ~~Retweet, repost, re-forward & re-facebook~~...REFRESH this each few days. Please. It has died down.
We wont make it alone. ALL my friends, please remember us each day.
Saniyah budding serious Rockhounder!
