Pay it forward, if you can..

May 6, 2010

I have never pushed selling my CD’s or books, or anything on my blog or website. My goal is to try to help share positive thoughts and stress management information for those who desperately need it and can’t afford training. I am asking today though, if you are able, and if you choose to do so, to help me now.

I bought a wedding gown and veil, shoes, a bag, all the wedding attire my son’s fiancee in Morocco needs to have a special three day wedding. Her dream is an American wedding gown. I packed everything in two boxes and insured them in case they were lost (thinking they could use the money to replace them – or for whatever they needed.

My son contacted me yesterday and told me because I insured them (even though I paid $160.00
postage) – in order to pick up the boxes he would have to pay $400.00 American currency. I
cried most of the day yesterday, even knowing it’s rather an impossible situation. We don’t even know if they will be returned if he doesn’t pick them up. It’s just not right.

Today I am on a different venue. I have a car load of personal things that I am taking to dealer’s to buy…and I am going to try to round up some hot cash for him! Here is what I am asking of you. If you have enjoyed my writing or gained some help from my http://www.stressmanagementmagic.com website, please pay it forward by donating whatever you could spare to my son’s Paypal account. It is chrisdamitio@yahoo.com. (He doesn’t know I am doing this, but it would be a miracle surprise for sure).

Even if you could part with a few dollars it would be awesome. I’ve written over four hundred posts here, and over one hundred on my new website. I will continue, but if you all could pull together and help out a bit it would be AWESOME. It is humbling to ask, but we are all (at least us “peasants” struggling) to make ends meet, and this would be a miracle for him to be able to get the boxes.

He teaches English there but has just moved his “bride” to a nice apartment and you know how costs add up to move anywhere!

It’s easy to spend a few dollars on junk and other stuff, but this would be paying it forward to join in a beautiful wedding for a couple totally in love. I’ve given away so many classes in health and fitness over the years – traded for what some had instead of money – or just done the classes for free. We all try to help one another, and this would really show me that Spirit and love really do exist, even on the internet!

Have a wonderful day! This could be a fairy-tale ending for their beginning. Love is still around!
