Help Us Help Others – Update

Help Us Grow Our Services
To Help Those In Need

Spring’s Haven Summer Campaign

Over the summer we held a fund raising campaign to Help Us Help Others in need. We began our campaign on August 3rd and it ran through to Samhain on October 31st. We focused on requests we received from people who are shut-in at home due to illness or tragedy, as well as, military personnel who are looking for someone to talk to and who holds the same spiritual beliefs.

We shared A Story of Hope and A Smile Can Help Someone Survive to share how our efforts will help those we have heard from.

Our campaign was a success and we couldn’t say Thank you enough to our sponsors for their generosity!. We raised enough to purchase 1 ipad and expand our services for digital face to face consultations and counseling. We couldn’t have done it without our wonderful friends who supported our effort!

Thank You For Helping Us Help Others

Help Us Help Others

Our Indiegogo Campaign Has Ended

Yesterday was the final day of our campaign to Help us keep hope alive for shut-ins and the military asking for help. We’re calling it a satisfactory success!

We began our campaign on August 3, 2012.

Our goal was $1,700 and 18 people helped us raise $347 of that. But nearly 380 people helped us to get the word out and share our campaign across social media.

I can’t begin to express what these gifts mean to us here at Spring’s Haven. We may not have meet our ultimate goal, but thanks to Apple’s new iPad Mini we should still be able to meet the need! We’ll know in the next few weeks as we dot the i’s and cross the t’s. So stay tuned for our announcements and new face to face services!!

More than the monetary value, we truly appreciate the thought behind the support and the compassion everyone shared with those in need.  Knowing we have the support of people like those who contributed, shared, tweeted and helped to get the word out, inspires our day and encourages our mission.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart and from everyone at Spring’s Haven.

The Ethics of Transparency

Our Weekly Analytics: The Help Us Help Other Fund

We want to keep our friends posted on the progress of our campaign and be transparent in our fundraising efforts. So we’ll be posting our Indiegogo Analytic Summary each week they are released during the campaign. This is the second report we’ve received and we’re ever so thankful for all the referrals we’ve received.

By leaving a comment or liking our campaign page, sharing it on FB, Twitter and Google+, you’re helping us to get noticed and featured on Indiegogo’s home page. Being seen by the world helps us tap into a much broader audience and increases our chances to meet our goal. So even if you can’t afford to give, you can help us greatly by spreading the word and sharing our page.

We are ever so thankful for the kind gifts we’ve received this week. Our fund is up to $200 today. Every little bit helps and we’re touched by the compassion from others.

Help Us Help Others

We received another donation this week and we wanted to say thank you to those who have helped us so far. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for your compassion and caring.

Even if you can’t help with financial support, you can help in other ways. By sharing our campaign page on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ you’re helping us to get recognized, and you’re helping us to get featured on Indiegogo’s home page! THAT would help GREATLY!

We offer consultation and counseling services for rape victims, women and families of abuse, and those in crisis. We have been asked to provide these services for those who are shut-ins from illness, tragedy or trauma, who are out of state, and for military personnel stationed around the U.S and overseas. Each of these requests are asking for help from people who believe in what they believe in and see the world through the same spiritual concepts and approaches as they do. Help Us Help Others is our campaign to fulfill that request, especially for our military men and women who give so much for those of us back home.

I wish we could say “we’re almost there”, but we’re a long way from it. With 74 Days left in our campaign we have only reached 1/10th of our goal. But we’re still going and ever so thankful for all the help we have gotten so far.

When I first researched this approach to funding our project I read several articles about the emotion that goes into these campaigns. Boy are they right in that. It’s hard to remember the campaign isn’t a reflection of the acceptance of an individual or a business or even an individual cause. But each time you check your campaign and see that a donation was made you get a sudden burst of excitement and joy. Consequently, when you check your campaign day after day and see no movement, you get discouraged and you think “no one likes me/us/what we’re doing”.  The sentence is different depending on the person you’re talking to.

Here’s where it gets hard being the boss of your own business. You can’t take things like this personally; at all. It’s business, nothing more. And you have to keep up a “brave” face for those who work with you, to keep them motivated and encouraged. Sometimes living the walk you talk isn’t easy, but it does get your though both the good and the bad times that everyone faces. No matter who you are, everyone needs a little pep talk now and then. There’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a pep talk.

Our campaign is simply trying to Help Us Help Others. Help us keep hope alive for shut-ins and the military who have requested our services for consultation and counseling on Skype & iPad’s Face to Face. Won’t you Help A Little To Help A Lot?

Whither you simply share our campaign page, or make a donation we really appreciate your support. And don’t forget if you can provide a monetary gift we do have something to give you as a thank you. Get a free personal reading from ME. Check our Perks page to learn about the different readings you can receive. You might even be able to receive a Face to Face tarot reading on our new technology!

In the past 6 months we have received an increase in requests from people asking for Skype or iPad face to face communications. Some of these people are shut ins, some simply can’t afford to travel to our location. I’d love to do this! But I’m limited by technology and financing.

We have even received requests from some military personnel stationed overseas who simply want someone to talk to and who holds the same spiritual beliefs as they do. These men and women are fighting for our freedoms, and they didn’t ask you what you believe in before they joined up and put their lives in harms way for you.

We’re looking to fill these requests through Skype and iPad Face to Face communication services. But we need your help to make this a reality! Will you give a little to help a lot?
