Guylty with her creativity is a very inspirational and encompassing member of our warm and welcoming fandom.
It is the more sad for me that she goes through such a hard time in her life.
I am always rather speechless in those circumstances, especially as I fear a similar situation in my own life and so deeply feel Guylty's current situation as if my own.
So I am happy to support Obscura's and Servetus' idea to show compassion and support for Guylty, who lost her father after short and unexpected illness.
Obscura lists the ways we can show our support by supporting charities,
- either the one suggested by Guylty and her family (a German charity - where I step in to enable transfers to the German account via my PayPal-Donation button. Separate site with details and updates here.)
- or the Richard Armitage charities of JustGiving (where Obscura lists the different ways to contribute either via her specially created PayPal account or directly).
Thank you very much for your friendship, support and compassion, no money could buy and which so overwhelmingly and heart-warmingly shows time and again, why the RA-fandom is the right place for me to be.
Thanks for supporting this!ReplyDelete
OMG, CDoart! I feel like a horrible, horrible idiot. All this time I was unaware that you had a blog, even though I know you from so many comments on my and other fans' blogs. I have to apologize for only now acknowledging this post and for your kind words. (You must be secretly thinking they were misguided because I haven't replied until now.) I am so so sorry!ReplyDelete
I wanted to thank you for your kindness in organising donations to the Heimatverein from the German side. Thank you for giving your time and more to this. I really am - as you can see from my delayed reaction - not worth it. And all the more humbled for it.
To everyone who has donated: Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was absolutely stunned when I first read about your kind wish to donate. It is something I would have never expected, and it certainly lifted my heart at a time of great sadness. I simply have no words to express how proud I am to be part of this group who can be so supportive and kind to each other. If anything, my dad should be happy that his daughter has such found amazing friendships - on the internet, of all places :-)
Thank you very much. (And I'll update you a little more in a separate comment...)
