    Hi *waves*

    I know I don't post very often but my husband does so he makes up for me :lol:

    I'm looking for some help. I tentatively posted in the Infield a few days ago asking if perhaps maybe people might want to help me out and I was so blown away by the generous response, I'm now going to ask here where more lovely GTP-types can read my plea.

    Here's what I wrote:

    Ok, so long and drawn out but kind of necessary to explain my situation. I was then further encouraged by good friends to look into the crowdfunding option. It seems Justgiving have that very thing and so I set a page up, not really expecting much help and just look what happened:

    Some other wonderful types also requested PayPal details, kdixon1978@hotmail.com is the address :)

    So I'm just going to keep posting in here because I don't want it dropping off the first page and people not seeing it. I mean, I suppose I'm officially 'bumping' which is frowned upon but it's for a good cause? Right?! :D

    Come on, people, we are a large community. This should be easily doable!

    Hey @Jordan is there anyway to get this put on the home page or something like that? I'd hate for @TheBook to be doing this for naught.

    If the man-hours that your other half put in to this community even paid minimum wage, I'm sure you would have more than accomplished your goal - given that, I'm happy to contribute.





    Also, thread bump :D

    Hello!
    So so sorry, I'm currently unable to donate (but in a week or two I can pledge at least £20 if that's okay? Christmas time is a lovely-busy-time!) but I'd just like to say good luck and I hope all works out, now and in the future <3
    You all truly deserve love and happiness

    As Dennisch said it shouldn't be to hard for the GTP community to gather that amount if we all pitch a little.
    Also pitched in a bit, I hope the crowd funding will succeed, good luck. :):tup:

    Ok, people, one final push towards the finish. Look at your wallet, bankaccount, paypal, whatever and donate that last bit of dough. It's for a proper cause.
