Friends, I don't typically use this blog to ask you for anything. I mean, sure, I put links to my books on here, and I I make the suggestion that you might enjoy reading them...and if you enjoy reading them, perhaps you'd please leave a positive review...but other than THAT...
My daughter was recently invited to participate in the Miss Wisconsin USA pageant in September. Modeling has long been a dream of hers, pretty much since the first time she saw "Project Runway" for the first time. (I know, not the point of that show...but that was her takeaway.) This is a huge step for her.
She has some financial needs to take this step and she's set up a GoFundMe account. Her needs are relatively small, compared to some I've seen on the site. Hubby and I would help her out, but I've been out of work for a bit and there hasn't been room in our budget for many extras. Even if there were, Hannah is a very independent girl and takes pride in doing things on her own. She still attends high school full time, graduates this year, and works almost full time at a restaurant, pretty much for tips. Most of her money goes to putting gas in her car, paying for her car insurance and her phone.
I did some quick math and I figure if every person who reads my blogs donated $1, she'd have way more than enough money to take care of the entrance deposit and fees.

everything around her. She would not love that I'm sharing this picture.
So friends, I am putting out a call for help. $1 from each of you. If we are successful, my daughter, a girl who survived brutal bullying by people she thought were friends and abuse at the hands of a boyfriend, can realize a dream and see that life can be beautiful and strangers are often kinder than friends.
