Feeling VERY loved!

#1

I’ve posted a few times about how I’m having trouble making ends meet due to living on disability benefits. For the last year or so, my best friend has been helping me a little financially. But he’s not going to be able to do that anymore.

So he set up a fundraising web page yesterday, to help me pay for my staggering medical bills and living expenses.

And he’s raised over $2,500 in less than 12 hours!

Those donors were all my friends and family. And there have been some friends of friends who’ve donated too!

I never expected anything like this. Very few people have ever helped me in my life. But now, I’m feeling overwhelmed with the amount of love and support that has been shown to me.

Thank God for love and great friends

Thank you so much, J! That means a lot to me.

I just wish that ALL of us who are suffering and struggling, for so many years, could experience this outpouring of love and generosity.

Will the money fundraised effect your disability benefits at all?? Not sure if it would or not. Very nice that it happened though!

My friend contacted Social Security and the IRS to see how this might affect me. Both said that the money raised is considered a charitable gift and will not affect my benefits or taxes. Thankfully!

Blessings,

This news is amazing. The kindness of people is sometimes underestimated.
I’m shocked at how expensive medical bills are over in the USA.
I count myself lucky that here in the UK, medical care is free, as we pay higher taxes.
This news warms my heart. :smile:
