I've been trying to set up an auction to help raise money to cover at least some of the costs (her medicare is refusing to cover pretty much anything at this point and the facility costs are completely out of pocket for my aunts and uncles). I haven't been able to set it up yet, because life, but it looks like the items will all be from my shop or items that were gifted to me from another crafter leaving her business. (I didn't reach out to anyone individually because I didn't want to feel like I was guilt tripping anyone into donating their work.)
However, I am still working on setting it up.
I also currently have a coupon code up on Etsy until the end of June. If you use IG2017 you will receive 50% off of your order. (You'll also be emailed an additional 20% off coupon code because it's still set up that way.) You can find the link somewhere next to this post or by clicking here.
I will update with when the auction is set up on facebook. I'm still trying to figure out how to hold one on Instagram. I know I don't get enough traffic here (by my own doing as I don't post often). If I were to hold it here on the blog (to avoid the long legal disclaimer "this is in no way affiliated with Facebook" blah blah blah), how would I do it? Have each piece given their own post? What are your thoughts? Any input is appreciated!
Thank you all again for all of your support still. I know I've put you all through a lot with everything I've been going through.
She had multiple absence seizures in the office for the appointment that the doctor witnessed today and was concerned about. My sister says it felt like someone was finally listening for the first time today. She's getting a referral to a psychiatrist and behavioral specialists finally for help with school too (which my kids get for help with other mental issues).
*With it having less than .3% THC, I might be able to use it. I am constantly "suggested" by well meaning friends to try cannabis, but I have always had a severe allergic reaction--but how do you go to the doctor for an epipen for cannabis, which is/was illegal? Recently, however, I've discovered that it may actually be the THC that I'm allergic to, along with the paper. Burning paper on cigarettes as well causes allergic asthma attacks.
