joy rising


I had trouble sleeping last night.
I was so full of joy.

A great problem to have, I know.
Last night we finished the facebook auction for Lisa.

We raised over $12,000!

The past couple of weeks has been an incredible experience for me.
I simply had no idea it would be so amazing.

In the past two weeks we have managed to raise over $45,000 for Lisa and her boys.
That total makes my heart burst.

We have well exceeded my original goal of raising enough funds for head stones
for Aaron and Noah. 

We have now allowed a single mother to stay home with her cherubs to help them.
To allow her to focus on healing and loving.

That is an amazing gift to give. 

I simply wanted to say thank YOU...
for your support
for spreading the word
for your wonderful donations
for your wonderful messages
for your sacrifices in your homes and families to help another
for simply loving another person you do not know
for allowing your heart to be touched
for sharing in my joy
for your kindness
for your excitement
for your charity

My joy has been rising the past two weeks.
I am bursting with joy from what we have achieved. 

Thank YOU so, so much.
My heart will never be the same.

Lisa sent me a thank you message to share with you all:

I would just like to thank everyone so much for their love, support, kindess and generosity shown to me and my boys over the past couple of weeks. After our son Noah passed away, we knew we were facing one of the hardest times in our life as we had to learn to live without him. To then lose Aaron less than four months later, can not even be compare, and we are still very much in shock and not believing it is real. 

To have so many people (especially Naomi) show us so much love had given us so much strength. It is so nice to know that so many people from all over the world and also close to home, care so much. I haven't been following things going on with the fundraising very closely as I'm dealing with lots of things going on at home, but when I do have a chance to sit down and take a look I'm blown away. 


Thank you to everyone who has donated money and also goods for the online auction. It is so nice to know that we do not need to worry about finances right now as it's the last thing we want to think about as we come to terms with what has happened. The first thing I will be doing is getting headstones for Noah's and Aaron's graves sorted out and I'm so grateful that I don't have to worry about the cost of them at this time. Thank you from me and my boys from the bottom of our hearts. I don't think I will ever be able to thank everyone enough, but hope that everyone knows how much it means to us. 

Lisa, Jalen, Harri and Kobe King XOXO

This week I will be connecting winners with companies to get items sent out.
Please be patient as I try to balance this around my family.

From Lisa, her boys and from myself. We are full of joy. Thank you so much xx
