I just wanted to let y'all know the donations have been made in honor and in memory of Jenn. $500 each to Zeus's Rescues and the Threadhead Cultural Foundation. Thanks again!
My calculations were a bit off. Make that a total of $2659!
When I started this GoFundMe for Jenn's second line, I thought we would probably exceed our goal of $1000. But I never dreamed we would collect $2700!! After fees to Wepay.com, we have $2561! Another $50 in cash makes our total $2601! Each of you has shown how much this woman meant to us. She was our friend, our sister, our mama, our Auntie Henn. We will use $1100 for the cops and the band for the second line. We will use $500 for the libations for the lunch after the service. The remainder will be donated to two of Jenn's favorite charities. We will donate $500 to Zeus' Rescue, a no kill shelter in New Orleans and the place where Jenn and David got Gromit, thanks to Amy Smith. http://zeusrescues.org/ We will also donate $500 to the Threadhead Cultural Foundation. http://www.thcfnola.org/ Most of you are Threadheads and are framily. If you donated and didn't think you were a Threadhead, well, you are now, my friend. (Google it!) My heart is overflowing with love for Jennifer Whodat Owens Rooney and for each and every one of you. Dance on through a fafillion tunes, my sister. Thank you. Love you. Mean it.
Thanks so much to everyone who has donated to Jenn's second line! We exceeded our goal and are at $1500 which is great because the police and band will cost about $1200. Any remaining funds we don't spend on food and drink for the luncheon will be donated to one of Jenn's favorite animal charities and to the Threadhead Cultural Foundation. I'll send another update when we close the gofundme to let you know our final total and how we used the money. Again we appreciate your kindness and hope we will see you on October 15!
