In my last blog I asked our supporters to help us raise $1100 to pay 2 months rent at a sober living home. This request for help was not just to raise the funds needed rather than to tap into our dwindling recovery fund, it was also a tool used to raise awareness of how difficult it is to raise money for recovery services.
While we love and totally appreciate our current supporters, it is saddening to see that others do not understand the need for recovery services.
In the two weeks that the blog was posted, we only raised $400 towards our goal of $1100($550 this month and $550 next month). During this same time frame, we actually spent $850 on sober living, $487.70 on transportation fees, $50.20 on bus passes, and $90.60 on prescriptions. As you can all clearly see-we need donations! Please Help!
In other (not so grim) news - I would like to congratulate those that took the first step this past week and asked for help! Yes, you know who you are, and I want you both to know how proud I am of your decision to seek recovery!
I am not telling you it's going to be easy, I am telling you it's going to be worth it!
