We interrupt our regular programming (I know, I know, the programming hasn’t been regular for a while, I’m getting to that) to bring you this very important message…….
This one is for Rara, the well-loved blogger whom you may know as Rarasaur. As you may already know, Rara has been serving a prison sentence for the past year—we don’t have to get into the details here—she has written about her situation in detail on her blog. Suffice it to say, she was given a bum rap. She’s scheduled to be released in a few months.
A few weeks ago, her beloved husband, whom you may know as Grayson Queen (also known as Dave), died suddenly. He died way too soon and way too young. His last posts are haunting; he wrote of not feeling well and described some troubling symptoms. And then the posts stopped.
DJMatticus took on the unenviable and difficult task of announcing the news about Dave’s death. He has been good enough to keep us posted on the memorial service, and most importantly, on how Rara is holding up.
Under the circumstances, I don’t know how anyone would hold up. But here’s what I do know: when Rara is released, she’s going to need some help. She’ll need the love and kindness of her friends and family, but she’ll also need assistance of a more practical nature.
So here’s where you and I come in. I’ve created a GoFundMe campaign for Rara, called RawrLove for Rara. You can click on this link or on the little dinosaur to go to the campaign page and donate. You can reblog this post, you can share the link in your blog/Facebook page/Twitter feed/email messages/whatever. The important thing is that we help Rara get back on her feet, because when she’s released she’ll have very little to start off with.
I’m going to keep the GoFundMe campaign active until we meet (but hopefully exceed) the donation target. I will also keep the little dinosaur fella on my blog throughout the campaign, and you can click on it anytime to get to the donation page. All money raised will go to Rara.
Many, many thanks to all of you in advance, and extra thanks to the righteous DJMatticus for writing the campaign description on the GoFundMe page.
I promise promise promise I’ll be back with an irreverent and swear-laden post soon! In the meantime, you look really fetching today. That color suits you so well, you really should wear it more often.
