Do I look nervous in this picture? It's because I was terrified. I had absolutely no idea how much work went into throwing a garage sale. You just set stuff out in the yard and people come and buy it, right?
Not exactly. Thankfully I had friends and bloggers and readers who jumped in to help me.
They helped me go from this (panic!):
And of course you guys. The best readers and friends on the entire planet. The bulk of what I raised for Help One Now in the last week has come from your generous online bidding and donating. I could cry at how grateful I feel for this community.
Between Saturday's garage sale, the online pre-sales, and the Instagram auction, we raised $4017 for Help One Now in Haiti!! All to go towards Ferrier Village and the work being done there to rescue children from human trafficking.
These exact children:
I am just beside myself.
Because I've seen it with my own eyes, and because we want to, The Gorilla and I have decided to match what was raised by the Hollywood Housewife community. So, because of you, I'll be writing a check to Help One Now and the kids of Ferrier Village for $8,034.
I am so grateful. We are so grateful.
Thank you. Thank you.
