Default Let's do something for La

I think we've all read Shawna's updates and know that Lauren Grier is not doing all that well.

I wanted to organize SOMETHING for her. I don't know exactly what but here are the ideas in my head right now:

Quote:
a "we love you" care package? just little we are thinking of you trinkets? raise money for Gift Certificates for food (whatever grocery store is near her/target )

for when she gets out? maybe a few things for CE like a new video game to keep his mind occupied?
I have created an email address SSDLOVESLA@gmail.com and if I get interest over the weekend to help I will start a paypal account that goes directly to that email address so I can then start getting whatever we decide on.

If anyone on her team wants to help and sees this before Shawna's message on your super secret boards please let me know. That person will also get the password to the email/paypal.

my yahoo ID is Pkhedlin

I think this is a great idea. I started to fill up my cart at her personal store, but I thought I'd wait and see if we were going to do something collectively. I'm game for whatever.

I'd love to help with whatever! Obviously, I want to do whatever I can to help La, but I also think it would be awesome to do something for Ce. They are such a team, and I can only imagine how hard this is on him.

Hi. I would like to do something too. My DH had a DVT last April and the recovery is slow going. She will probably need some support for at least a couple of months. I hope she has good Drs and that they figure out why she got these in the first place.

I would like to do something too. She has been my one of my favorite designers and I want to help in some way make things a little easier for her and Ce at this difficult time.

I'm in...but I'm not sure exactly what you want us to do. Is it to send money to her through paypal at this email address? Would it be better just to send it to her email address? Is there something else that you're planning on doing with this?

Right now I'm tryng to see who wants to but handing the email address over to her is great idea.

I'm using the weekend to get responses and ideas just like that one!

My thoughts were collect $$, buy/send stuff to Ce with a small portion ($50ish for a game and toy) and use the rest to buy a GC to target.

Guys, another way to support La is to do a little shopping in her store. I think she would totally appreciate a little extra cash coming in since she has to take some time off for her health.

Shawna will stop in later, guys. She is very touched by the idea but we will have to wait and see how that all works.... I know she was waiting to her the latest from La.

I have NOT attached the email address to a paypal account yet. I'm waiting to see what exactly we all decide on since in order to get the money out easily, it has to be a verified account, right?? Unless what is there is then transferred to one that is verified.

of course we could just send it all to Shawna, if that is the route we go or to La if we just want to give her money.

The only thing we can't do, if we do it that way is the care package for Ce.

So... if anyone has thoughts on all this -- please let me know.

However, if places like Target/walmart accept paypal so I can order stuff for Ce and not need to withdrawl it to use? that makes things easier.

Ideas for Ce: (I'm thinking total frivilous treat)

New video game (about $40) -- assuming of course he has a DS, PSP, wii, PS, Xbox, whatever...

I keep thinking that La is going to have to keep paying bills and stuff even while she's not able to work. If we could get 100 people to buy just one kit from her personal store, that would be $700 of income she'd have. We need a "pay La's bills" campaign to get people shopping!

I shopped her store already, and I'm waiting to see what else we're going to do.

I'm in for helping. I agree that she probably needs the cold hard cash over the next month or so the most and then maybe we do some goodies for Ce.

I'm in as well, anything I can do!! I agree about getting her some cash up front and then like neenee said , later we can do some care packages,etc. But getting her over the crucial crunch should take precedence. Many prayers going up for her. Been at the hospital for the last three days with my niece having a preemie but I am reading and catching up now and my heart goes out to La and Ce too!

I'm going shopping in her personal store right now. That seems to me like the easiest way to get her money That is, unless we all crash her store. I'm happy to chip in for a Ce package as well, just waiting for a definitive nod

This sounds like a good plan to me. I'm going to go buy a kit, and I'll chip in for something for Ce. I'm not positive, but I think you can now use PayPal at the Toys R Us website.

SSDlovesLA@gmail.com

is set up and linked to it's own paypal.

Do we want to collect $50? $75? $100 for Ce?

A lego set is $30-50 and a Gamecube game is in the same range or we could just do a gift card (assuming there is a TRU where he is)

I am up for anything too. Getting Shawna over there is a wonderful idea. I am sure if would bring them both such peace.

And shopping at La's store... haha, who needs an excuse. i am there!
