A fund for Jennie

I am sure a lot of us know that our fellow blogger, Jennie recently lost her dear husband suddenly. Many have responded to pay tributes to her late husband Mikey by making his favorite Peanut butter creamy pie.  It is heartbreaking enough to lose the man she loves but it is even more heartbreaking to know that she might be in financial difficulty after finding out that she is not eligible for widow’s benefits because her income is too high to qualify.

Please read this post to find out more:
A fund for Jennie

I know what it is like because I have been through that myself.  If you have been following my blog you would have known the difficulties I faced when my first husband passed away suddenly. I do not wish another soul to have the same experience as Jennie and I.  Here is a link about that time if you are curious:

I know one way I can be of help to Jennie is make a donation and to join the project organized by our fellow blogger Shauna Ahern to write a post to help raising funds for Jennie.

If you wish to make a donation to Jennie, please click on the "Bloggers without Borders" button:

I am sure Jennie and her two girls will be very grateful for your generosity and kindness.

This can happen to any of us and trust me, it is true of my last post’s title “Give and you shall receive”.

  2. My heart goes out to Jennie and her girls. You're an angel to do this for her.

  14. My heart goes out to Jennie and her daughters. This shouldn't be brought on to anyone. No. It's such a tragic to lose someone dear, so suddenly.

    That being said, I am so glad to be a part of such an amazing bloggers community.

  15. @Rita, @ping, @Diane
    I hope this little bit I do for Jennie will help create awares for more donation into the funds for her and her two girls.

    I am sure Jennie and her girls will appreciate you including them in your prayers.

    If we all spread the words about Bloggers without borders fund raising for Jennie, I guess we be able to help her solve her financial plight.

    You are doing the right think to get your husband to write a will. Not just your husband my dear, you too got to write the will.

    Jennie may not know me but she is our fellow bloggers. I have gone through what she is going through now so this is the little things I could do to help.

    @Kian Fai
    Most of the time we think we can't do much, but if we each do a little together, we can do a lot for her.

    @Uncle Lee
    Thanks Uncle Lee. It is my privilege to know so many kind and caring bloggers.

    You too. You are are kind person yourself. It is through your blog that I know about Jennie's tragedy. Thanks for giving me this chance to do something little for her and her girls.

    @Parsley Sage
    I am sure Jennie and her girls will be very grateful to you. Bless your heart.
