Michelle's EXTREME Home Makeover

UPDATE as of May 12, 2018
Today we officially reached our initial goal! A HUGE thanks to everyone who gave. However, we also found out yesterday that Michelle's car broke down this week and is not running right now. So if you want to give and haven't yet done so, please do so. Any extra money that we get we are going to give her so that she can fix her car. Thx. 

!!!TOP SECRET!!!  Do NOT share on Social Media!!!  Please read entire story BEFORE giving!!!

Michelle's birthday is coming up and we are so very excited! If you know Michelle, you know that she gives 110% of all that she is to everyone that she meets. Because she is always giving out, we decided that for her birthday this year, we wanted to GIVE BACK to her! This is why we have created project: Michelle's Extreme Home Makeover.

Michelle lives in a small one bedroom home with virtually no place to organize or place her belongings. While her house is small, her heart is HUGE and because of that, we want to make her house feel like a home. We are looking to raise a minimum of $3000 to fund giving Michelle new cabinetry, storage space, paint, lighting, decor and furniture. We estimate that we will need approximately $3000 to re-do it all....Kitchen, Living Room, Bedroom, Bath...and even her patio, if we have extra funds!  We already have a crew who are donating their time to do all of the work, we just need to purchase all of the materials. 

This is where YOU come in! If you know Michelle and have been blessed by her in any way, we ask that this year for her birthday, you would consider donating to making her house a home! For all that she gives out, we want to give back and make her feel so loved! 

What can you donate? Any amount! There is no amount to small or too large. It's the heart that counts and we know you all love Michelle! 

When you donate to this GoFund Me we ask that you do not leave it "anonymous" but that you tell us who you are + write a short description of how thankful you are for Michelle or what she means to you. We plan to take the names + notes written by everyone who donates and create book that we will proudly place on her new coffee table! I promise you, this will be her favorite thing of the entire surprise.   

What to Know?

This project is TOP SECRET. This is a surprise for Michelle and we want it to stay that way! We would love for you to share this with all of your friends that have been impacted by Michelle's life, however, we do ask that you only share via text, email and word of mouth.  That's right, tell your friends about it! But, please do not post on Facebook/Instagram- Michelle will find out.

When do we need the money by?

We are asking that all donations be in no later than May 1st. Her birthday is in May and if we have all donations in by May 1st it will ensure that we are able to complete this project in time for her birthday.   A few of her friends are taking her away for a weekend in May for a Birthday Girls GetAway.  This is when we will secretly submerge upon her house and make her an adorable cottage that will bless her in so many ways.  To make this all happen, we need to purchase the cabinets, appliances, building supplies and other vital materials as soon as possible.  So the earlier you can give, the better!  

Let us know if you have any questions at all. We are so thankful for all that Michelle has done, for not only our lives, but the thousands of lives she has touched and impacted for all of eternity. We cannot wait to start project: Michelle's Extreme Home Makeover!

NOTE:  When you give on Go Fund Me, do NOT click on anything that asks you to post to Facebook at the end of your giving!  Thanks.
