I want to thank everyone that contributed to my #GetWellMeechy fund, took the time to email me, sent in handwritten cards and gifts to my P.O. Box, the well wishes and most importantly the prayers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, you guys surely know how to make a girl feel blessed. The #GetWellMeechy fund raised over $22,000 in 24 hours and a little over $40,000 in 2 weeks. Our GOD is awesome!!!
A huge thank you to the brands that got behind me and rallied towards my recovery expenses. Special thanks to Beauty Blogger Rachel O Beauty and the Brand Eden Bodyworks for working it into their program and being selfless. Both events were held in Chicago and I want to personally thank the donators.
A special buddy of mine, Terrell Jones, raised funds for me during a BBQ which was filled with SIU peeps, family and friends. It truly brought me to tears and I appreciate all the lovely supporters.
Koils By Nature and The Huetiful Salon are running specials in an effort to raise money. For the entire month of August, Koils By Nature will donate 20% of the proceeds directly to my #GetWellMeechy Campaign. I know the owner Pam, and she is just the sweetest/down to earth person. She truly is an angel and whats better than getting some hair products and giving forward at the same time.
The Huetiful Team of Chicago is hosting a fundraiser on August 24th. Let me tell you, the most talented team of hair professionals are in the building and you don’t want to miss this if you are in the Chicago-land area. I personally know Ken Burkeen, the owner of Huetiful, as we once traveled with his team to do a European tour. He is truly a friend and this shows so much support. It is great that 100% of the funds will be donated to my medical fund.
The artwork has been simply amazing. Here are a few of the images and paintings that I found. Talk about talent!!!
This piece has a silent auction that’s attached and the proceeds go to my fund. Beautiful pieces and thanks to the artists.
So I just wanted to say THANK YOU for everything. The brands and supporters really helped out a lot in terms of spreading the word. Every donation, comment, email, card, gift, social media messages, well wishes and prayers. You guys inspire me so much, and YES I have read every single message. It motivates me to continue being strong even on my weakest days.
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 - “The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
