I can’t believe it, except it’s totally true. The facts are staring me in the face. In just six days, we raised $3505!! I really thought it was too lofty a goal, that my minuscule dream couldn’t really get people worked up enough to want to see it happen . . . even up until yesterday, when we were 2/3 of the way there, I was sure we wouldn’t get all the way there, and then one of the most irritating (to me) lines in my entire campaign video came back to me: “I felt like the Lord was like (GRR! Hate that I said that word 2x. *sigh*) this is a gift I’ve given you and I want you to use it!”
DUH. If the Father breathed life into a dream, then of COURSE He’s going to fund it you silly girl! I can’t thank Him, or all of the supporters, financial and otherwise, enough for making this dream a reality. I am ECSTATIC!!!!
I woke up this morning to only $370 left in the campaign, and things were moving slowly. I felt awful about spamming Facebook with my excitement the day before, but all that spamming got my campaign in front of so many people, I had donations coming in all day yesterday! And then the end totally caught me by surprise. It didn’t inch up on me, just BAM. I checked my email and the campaign had met it’s goal! I squealed, I laughed, I sobbed . . . it was a pretty amazing moment, sweetened by the fact that we were heading out for a double dinner date with new friends (we had a blast!), which we don’t do very often. A-MAZ-ING! I’m still in shock!
Here is the slightly bad news . . . because we expected it to take considerably longer to pull together all of the funds, we won’t actually see the money until after the campaign officially ends in July. But the upside of that is that the campaign (click that to go there!) is still receiving funds until that moment in July! So we can raise more! We can start seeding the other projects that I have written beginning to end that just need some TLC before being edited and published!
So it will be late July/early August before the book is available for purchase and download, but that’s fine with me, it’s only fitting that the book is released during the time frame it was written 🙂
Thank you all again for your incredible, continued support! I am in awe of the love!!!!
