  •  hi, zwoof - i'm finally awake... (7+ / 0-)

    i'm going to update my diary with a goal for the amount of money we need to raise to give kathy some breathing room.

    i saw you mentioned the rent was due - do you have a date?  

    i think of alicia often and of you and your family's love for one another - you have shared so much with us - the sorrow of losing your daughter the joy of gaining your beautiful mrs. zwoof - you have truly brought depth to this community!

    we WILL do this for alicia, kathy and for you!

    for folks who want to donate, here is the link to the diary with the donation page information....

    dave in northridge has joined me in keeping alicia's voice loud and strong - i hope more will do the same!

      I chatted with Kathy last night and her main concern was the yearly lease on the building, which was $5,000.

      She has $16 K but has earmarked it for nursing scholarships for victims of domestic violence.

      The Bowling Green community has been very generous over the last 6 years, but donations have dropped off.

      I think she is concerned about sustainability.

      •  okay - we get the rent - then perhaps there are (3+ / 0-)

        kossacks out there who are familiar with the grant writing process.  i'm also thinking there may be other groups that can offer help in long-term fundraising sources.

        my first thoughts this morning were of the organizations formed for missing children - to try to find out how they have funded and stayed visible - adam walsh foundation comes to mind.  

        what we have to do right now, though, is raise the rent!  

        i'm sure she is also tired - it is such a task - of love and energy - and it has to be so hard when times are tough.  things will get better, though, i feel it!

        is the media doing much coverage about the possible loss of the center?
