dali_muse kindly suggested I post this here. From my personal journal/s:
Anabel Ramirez, whom many of us know, was given a life expectancy due to her struggles with cancer. We wish to make her last days a little more pleasant. She needs groceries and money for bills because she has been unable to work lately; in fact eviction is a real possibility. We're trying to plan a club benefit also. But if you have any amount of $ to spare and are willing to contribute, please send a 'personal', 'gift' donation to djnevermore73 at gmail.com. Anabel will receive it and I'd be happy to keep an accounting of donations.
She could also use fresh garden goodies, in case you have any to spare. I am also accepting donations of your handmade artistic goodies, as I plan to have a silent auction or some such thing. So far, I have hair ornaments/fascinators, a Halloween goodie basket and semi-precious stone jewelry donated.
Please keep eyes peeled in case I can swing a benefit. Have already dipped the oars in the water... Thank you in advance if you can help, so much.
p.s. This has nothing to do with the Inferno benefit I did in 2006. That was not for Anabel.
Thank you so much to those who are able to help and/or absolutely would if they could!
