Pay Bills/Attend Retreat Please.

Hello, my name is Bj.  I am blessed to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world,(Hawaii),  however it is also one of the most expensive places.(a loaf of bread can cost over 7.00).  With that being said, now that Medicare is taken from my Social Security I'm not netting much each month.  It is not easy for me to do this, as I'm usually the one that is helping others.  I'm hopeful/trusting  others can/will now help me.   Not that long ago I had made plans to go visit my mom  living in CA, a few months prior to my planned trip I was in a horrific accident that left me hospitalized for a time, and permanently disabled. Doctors would not clear me to take the 5 hour flight to visit my mom,and  shortly thereafter  she died.  I will always be saddened I did not get to give her one more hug.  I made my mother  a promise that I would embrace every opportunity to be my best, and be of service.

I have an opportunity to attend a wonderful weekend, Celebrate Your Life workshop in Scottsdale, AZ, in November. The retreat will help me further hone my skills as a spiritual counselor.  I made my mother  a promise that I would embrace every opportunity to be my best, and be of service. I truly believe this workshop is one of those opportunities.
However with airfare, hotel accomodations and the cost of the workshop itself; as well as just paying for my rent, and for basics(groceries,utilities,phone)  here  each month, I find myself financially challenged at this time.
I need the funds as soon as possible, so that I can register  for the workshop,   book a flight,etal, as well as pay off some bills.

PLEASE NOTE:If you would prefer to mail a check to me directly as a donation ,rather than post here,  and have my mailing address please do so, as that way I will receive the full sum of your donation. Be advised gofundme  takes a percentage of all donations as a fee,understandably so.  If you need my  mailing address message me and I will provide it. Thank you.

On Another Note:
I am availabe for private phone consultations, house blessings, and readings too,so if you would like to schedule any of my services, you can message me for my fees, and I'll do my best to schedule some time that is mutually convenient for us.

 Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated more than you might realize, and I promise to pay it forward.

Please be gentle with yourself/others, and again...Thank You!
