Friday morning of February 20th, my house was broken into and I was robbed of every dollar to my name. I believe it was my ex boyfriend (we broke up that monday) as he also emptied out our joint bank account (first and last time I'll ever do that again), passes to a cruise that I had won while we were dating were taken as well, and many many many other details regarding this insident and his past of theft lead to him.
I was cleaned out of almost 5 grand and I'm negative in my bank account. I had been saving for quite sometime to fix my 72' VW and to take care of my teeth that need immediate attention. Thankfully I just invested a lot of it towards a glass blowing studio so I only need a few more things to get that going. I am very aware that steps could have and should have been taken as soon as we broke up in order to prevent this situation but I would have never thought he would have done this to me. I took in my best friend in order to help get on his feet and I fell in love. I've slept next to him for the past ten months but he still was able to fool me of the kind of person he really is. It's been a very hard lesson for me to learn but at least I've learned from it.
I've had many friends reach out to me this week wanting to help in many ways. I have a hard time accepting money from people so I want to do this a little differently. For people's donations and help, I want to at least be able to personally show my gratitude and extreme appreciation to each person by gifting a piece of art that me or one of my friends have made.
For everyone who donates a minimum of $20 and you would like to recieve an art piece, leave your name when you donate and then personally facebook message me at https://www.facebook.com/tiffany.bethke.7 or simply contact me on here and I will personally talk to you and show you what I have to offer.
I have a variety of things that conisist of paintings, spray paint, galaxies, drawings/sketches, synthetic dreads you can install in your hair, handmade jewelry, painted feathers, and some other things I could come up with. I have printed posters of me I will sign personally to the top donations as well.
My glass blowing studio will be up and running shorty as I came up with money to get it that way. So glass art is also available, it'll just take me a little longer to get that made and sent. I also hula hoop dance and could make a video to a song of your choice. Anything to show my appreciation.
Donations under that amount will recieve a thank you card that has been decorated with love :)
If you would like to just leave a donation anonymously, that is also an option. But I would love to send you a gift so please consider otherwise.
Thank you to all who have reached out to me and shared your kind words with me. There's no words for the appreciation I have for the people around me and for my mindset. I won't let this situation hold me down.
