Help Me Help Rissa
While she faces treatments, one of the immediate concerns will be monetary. She does have insurance, but it's the end of the year and new deductibles will kick in and have to be met in just two days. We'd like to help Rissa by padding her bank account so that she doesn't get more stressed over finances, and can concentrate on fighting this monster.
I don't usually make all that much from my writing, but November was a good month for me (which I donated to others who needed a bit of Christmas cheer), and December is even better. As of this morning, I'm up to $181.24 in earnings for people reading my articles this month. I'd love to make that an even $200, all to be donated to Rissa.
You can help me help Rissa by clicking here to read some of my articles. Please don't click blindly; I'm not trying to game the system. Just have a look through the titles and click to read any that interest you. You'll find simple crochet patterns, a few recipes, even an op/ed piece or two.
You can also help by reading Rissa's articles. Obviously her writing will take a back seat during her treatments, so by reading her work now, you'll help her continue to earn a small residual income.
I don't want to share Rissa's email address for PayPal donations, but we should have a button soon that will allow others to donate directly without compromising her personal information. Please check back and look for that button if you'd like to donate.
Rissa is a lovely young woman, wife and mother. I've only got two days left to meet my $200 goal. Won't you help me help her?
