By June 1, I need to relocate , find, fund and furnish a little nest from which I can continue to go forth & work& live. One where one son, three cats & too many books can settle in safely.
I pinched pennies till Mary Lincoln came back from the dead and told me to lay off her Abe..all saved for a new rental I should have been all set: but:my accounts were hacked and my money is gone.( for now) I thought it was all safe and sound and ready to pay for a new dwelling in June.
A friend started this for me but we realized that for it to work I needed to post it . Not gonna pretend it's not hard taking my own advice. For YEARS I've told people it is no shame to ask and no shame to accept help. Here's what some folks said :
"Please consider lending a hand to Ellie. Ellie has worked in community service as a poorly paid worker or as a volunteer all her life. She wouldn't change a thing.She still works ( mostly) tirelessly for her Maine neighbors here in Maine to help get them food , shelter and medical care.
She works at a full time job and also writes freelance on the side to add a few extra dollars. In her SPARE time , she puts on benefits for others, including Domestic Violence support groups and homeless shelters. She's done this her whole life.
Ellie is 61, she plans to work a long time yet. Let's see that she has a soft place to land.
Those who know Ellie know that she is loving and gives till it hurts her but will rarely accept anything from anyone. When she took the wonderful house sitting opportunity this winter, she re-homed her third hand furniture. She has a bed , a desk that belonged to her Dad and a small table and chairs plus all the small stuff , dishes and the like. The plan was to buy new third hand for the new place.
Three old cats, one son and Ellie would sure appreciate your help,anonymous or not. This site is cool because it CAN be anonymous ,too!
Ellie is learning a hard lesson about being a graceful RECEIVER. And you can bet she will never forget you graceful givers.
Money raised will cover rent (first and last month), moving fees, security deposit and second-hand furniture.
