Another Chip In Update and More Info

Good morning, everyone!

As of this morning the Chip In is up to $5,030. (That sound you heard was my jaw hitting the floor.) I’ll be making another transfer to Sandra this morning. Once again, rest assured that this money will be put to VERY good use. Thank you, thank you!

Also, Frankie’s mom Lana has more information this morning on their blog about another generous and loving gesture being made, along with some other important information that you might want to check out.

Many people have asked us about sending gifts or donations directly to Sandra. Here’s the info that Lana posted on Frankie’s site this morning:

If you would like to help Sandra and her family BEYOND what you have so generously done… some of us have been working behind the secenes and have come up with this… Since they lost EVERYTHING… and are currently staying with Family… Space must be considered along with everything else… So Gift Cards seem to be the best way to go. There are BOTH a Target and A Wal-Mart very near. Of course you do know that WAL-Mart is where Shelby was Found by Sandra.
I KNOW that many of you would like to buy actual Presents for Sandra, Josh, the Baby and Bella and Brinks… but we MUST consider all the ins and outs… It would be for the Best to allow Sandra to purchase what is needed and not overwhelm everyone in the household. Perhaps they would even need some food items for their CHRISTMAS DINNER. Yes, my dear friends… Gift Cards would be MOST APPRECIATED.

If you would like the address, please email me at mayziegal AT gmail DOT com. OR you can send an email to Frankie’s mom at frankiefurter AT wildblue dot NET. (But just one or the other, please.) Also, please put “Sandra’s addy” in the subject line and we’ll get back with you ASAP.

Once again, thank you ALL for your kindness and support of Sandra over these last two days. Amazing. Truly, truly amazing.

  1. A M A Z I N G!!!! What an outpouring. Just fantastic. I once heard someone say that when someone needs help, people “just want to boil water”… well in this case, I think Blogville served up a 12 course meal. The money will give Sandra and her family a great start! Everyone put their hands together, many of us have never even met each other, and circled Sandra and her family with love and support. It will be a long road but we will be there with her. Hugs to all!!!

  2. PS I will add my name to the gift card givers. Sending an email.

  3. It is my hope and prayer that in the wake of this horrific tradegy, Sandra and her family can feel our love and be lifted up as they rebuild and heal.

    It takes a village. In this case one that spans thousands of miles across the country.

  5. Thank you again for all you have done to make this possible. Even me (in South Africa) was able to do a teeny-weeny bit. Thank you for this opportunity. What amazing love displayed so openly for one of our own.
    Well done Blogville!

    Hello! I learned about Sandra’s terrible loss over at Two Pitties. I hadn’t known about her blog before but I wanted to help. Reggie and I made a donation through the chip-in page. I hope that in some small way it helps them get back on their feet.

  7. Thanks for the update, Mayzie!

  9. The outpouring is truly inspiring. I gave our Izzy a big hug after reading about the terrible tragedy and went on to the Chip-In page, where even more tears flowed. It feels good to be a small part of a group of bloggers and dog lovers who are truly selfless.

    Thank you so much for keeping us updated, Miss Mayzie. We were able to chip in a little from my speshul account and I was so glad to do that. We’re still praying for Miss Sandra and her family that their hearts will be healed and that they will have all their needs met.

  16. You are doing a great job Mayzie. It’s a good plan to steer people towards gift cards. It’s so tempting to want to send a personal gift but you are right that we MUST think about what’s best for Sandra and the family and gift cards are the way to go along with the chip-in donations.

    You are a star.

    Love and licks, Winnie

  17. I hope and pray this out pour helps heal this family of such terrible loss during the holidays.

    Little contributions add up, our thoughts are with Sandra, her Mom, Joshua, Junior, Brinksy, and my dear Bella. Mayzie you has a wonderful mother to organize this effort.

    woof – Tucker

  19. You have done an amazing job of coordinating the fundraising. They can certainly use whatever is donated.
