Oh my goodness. I am completely overwhelmed. You lovely, lovely, lovely people!
Okay, I'll try to summon some coherence. Remember that little Superdog blog I wrote yesterday telling y'all about fundraising efforts for Rylan's service dog? You crazy, wonderful people have really put the word out and we have raised $4500 in a little over 24 hours all from private donations! I've gone through and thanked each person individually through the fundraising site, but I want to send a BIG collective thank you to my lovely bigger-than-I-imagined social circle. THANK YOU!
I feel like George Bailey at the end of "It's a Wonderful Life". I had no earthly idea that the response would be like this. I assumed that my closest friends and family would probably chip in if they could, but I have complete strangers sending ridiculous amounts to me: $100, $200, $500 -- people I don't know from Adam. Our family has been set completely adrift on a sea of kindness.
We nearly have enough to make the first $5000 payment due August 1 already! Words are failing me right and left as I try to express how this makes me feel. Relieved. Excited. Grateful. Grateful. Grateful.
