House Deposit and Benny's Tooth

$1,851 of $2,850 goal

Raised by 46 people in 1 month
Created August 29, 2018
Woodstock Reveries  is a small, family-owned business. We lost our small storefront last December and have tried ever since to survive with online sales and work from home.

We have successfully recreated part of our store on the porch of our house - it's smaller, and we are not in the village proper like we used to be, but we exist! To do so our landlord required a substantial deposit both to renew our lease and to protect her from liability on using the porch as a business.

We need the remainder ($2500) of our total deposit of $4,500 as soon as possible; the rest must be paid by the 14th of October.

We have also had to pay to help our Benny, who cracked a tooth on a treat and had to have it removed.

Any additional donations will be a huge help to us. We have regular customers who miss visiting our store, especially in autumn with the changing leaves, and for holiday shopping.

All donations will go directly to our deposit (so we can stay in our home/store) and to taking care of our Benny. It would mean so much to us to have a little control over our lives again!

Thank you in advance for anything you can do. It will change our lives for the better!

Hi everyone!
Thank you for all your generosity to me and my family. Your support means home and a sense that things are getting better, and that is such a gift.
Though we haven't yet reached our final goal, our landlord is willing to sign the lease renewal and give us more time to get the deposit together. We are meeting today to hammer out the details.
Bottom line - we can stay!!!
Thank you to everyone who's helped us. We literally couldn't have done it without you!
Tom, Rhea, and Benny

Hi everyone!

We have recreated a smaller version of our store on our porch (yay!), and have had a few customers on the weekends. We hope as the leaves change things will pick up!
We are now in the final stretch of our fundraising. We need the $2500 remaining on our deposit by October 14th in order to get our lease renewed and stay in our home.
We already managed to raise $2000 in September from all you generous people + and anonymous donor, so any help to push us over the line would be so appreciated!
I added $350 to the fundraising total to cover the expense of Benny's tooth, which he cracked when working on a hard treat. The vet said he could fix that tooth without putting him under, which would be vastly more expensive.
Thank you for all you've done. Your help has meant the world to us!
Rhea, Tom, and Benny

P.S. The photo is of Benny as best man at our wedding!

Hello everyone! First, another thank you to everyone who has already contributed - your support has meant so much to us!

Now, I'd like everyone to know that an anonymous donor has sent us $1500 towards our October 1 goal of $2000!! This is a truly an unexpected gift, and it makes a huge difference in our lives.

We are therefore reducing the amount of our ultimate goal to reflect this donation, which was not made through GoFundMe.

Thank you all!
