I have finally figured out how to individually thank donors through the App! I am reading every message and some are bringing me to tears. A very poignant example here. I am so honored and grateful for all of this support and hope to be a respectful and responsible steward of these heartfelt and generous donations. I have about 4,000 more to read!! (The app is the only way for a beneficiary to thank donors individually)

A message from Juli:

Dear Friends,

After I was terminated from my job on October, 31, I was driving home and as you can imagine, my thoughts were racing. I never imagined that my "one-finger salute" to the Presidential motorcade and its occupant would cost me my job. The actions of my company were swift and unexpected.

I was shocked and worried about many things:

How and when to tell my children? (my daughter's birthday was days away and of course I wanted her to have a happy one)

How would I pay for healthcare?
How much money do I have in my savings to cover our mortgage and general living expenses in Northern Virginia and how long will it last?
How long will it take to land another job?

This is the short list.

Through your very generous donations, many of those heavy burdens have been lifted.

I am not sure what the future holds, but I am buoyed by your support. For now, I can just say THANK YOU and promise to be a good steward of these funds.

Juli Briskman
