One Person can Make a Difference
Two ways to make the world a better place today! Well, more than that. But I'm just posting about two.

1. eilonwy is still desperately seeking a home for two kitties, who can be placed together or individually. Time is running out for these guys. Currently in Phoenix, but can be brought to the PA/MD/NJ/NY area ~the 20th.

2. Short version: Furniture needed in or near Nashville for 12-year-old girl. Queen mattress, boxspring, bookcases. Long version: "I'm trying to accomplish a bit of a holiday miracle, and I know your social circle and readers have been nothing less than amazing about things like this in the past. I have a brother-figure whose ex-wife will soon be relinquishing custody of their 12-year-old daughter to him. The problem arises in the fact that said ex has already made known she will not relinquish the child's bedroom furniture. Yes, she deems this more important than the child. Anyway, the brother-figure and his new wife have procured a queen bedframe, but are in need of a mattress and box spring and a couple bookcases. They have no funds available themselves, and I've been posting to Freecycle with no results. We live in Nashville and would happily pick up the items if we can find a donor. If you know anyone that could help, it would make for an amazing gift for this girl and would be most deeply appreciated. If not, I thank you for trying anyway."

Please spread these far and wide! On the second one, e-mail me at shadesong AT gmail.com and I'll pass the info on to the reader requesting assistance.

I did a search on Nashville Craigslist on the For Sale and did a max of $100. They require weeding but given the price of gas, it might be easiest if they search there and we raise funds here?

Just a thought...

I'm the one that's looking for the furniture. I think that's a great idea, and quite honestly, if I were working I could probably scrape together the funds myself. Alas, I'm drawing unemployment and already having to accept help from my parents to keep up with the bills I can't cover otherwise. I don't know any in The Collective, but I'd be very grateful to accept the donations through PayPal and do the rest of the arranging from this end. Thank you so much.

Boosting the signal re: the kitties; we are lucky that a friend is taking care of ours for us, but really hoping to find an apartment that accepts pets (and employment) soon so that we do not impose... Wishing them the best of luck.
