Update X2: We're good. Emergency $2K mini-goal by end of day. Shares badly needed.

UPDATE X2:  We're good. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart.

We're in a bind. Costs this week far outstripped what we expected. More, I thought I had funding lined up already for what would be needed for all eventualities this week, but . . . not yet, apparently. Unfortunately, vendors have to be paid, and I can't ask them to wait. The weather also means that Sherm (that's Clarence, Jr.) can't work at his other job right now, and he's ready to start the plasterwork here — but he can't do that until the materials are ready. That's slated for later today, but obviously, that happens only if we can pay the vendors. Right now? We can't.

I need to raise $2K TODAY. I have to be able to get it transferred by end of day, so that we can turn around and pay vendors tomorrow. Otherwise, I have upset people, and no work happening this weekend, and neither pf those things helps us get this work done. [UPDATE: We just made a great sale (thank you, thank you!), and our mini-goal is now down to $650.] So please, PLEASE share the links below:
  • Wings's PayPal account, for donations to the house fund. [We've raised another $115, putting us at $7,860 thus far on this $30K stage. $7K+ of that is going to have to be reserved for the septic, and labor's eating us alive on the daily, so that's going to mean a lot of juggling.] If that link doesn't work, it's tied to his e-mail address: wingsoftaos [at] newmex [dot] com. Also, that link? It's a direct one now, rather than via the "Donate" button, so it should work better.
  • His Web site, for sales (always preferable, and the base upon which the whole project hinges anyway, along with paying our day-to-day living expenses) — and just by the way, he's got some really incredible new works up now.
  • Our Amazon wishlist, which contains Lowe's cards that will allow us to purchase some materials more cheaply than here in town, and also allow us to divert the extra funds to labor costs.
$2K in a day is a lot. I'm going to be running all day long trying to raise it any way I can. Please give us a hand with shares, because I've got to make this work, for us, for our crew, for our vendors. And as I said last night, much love and gratitude to everyone — and if you can, please support LauraLee's fundraiser, because she and her girls and their dog are going to see their house on the auction block today, and the people foreclosing treated her the same way those repossessing ours treated us.
