thecrystalcrow: Miracles CAN happen…

When I woke up yesterday afternoon (don’t ask), I found, once I’d fired up the computer and then TweetDeck, that good things had been happening for Kristal while I slept:

Kristal tells me the good news about her camper, via Twitter DM.

Kristal tells me the good news about her camper, via Twitter DM. YAY!

… and that’s one heck of a thing to wake up to 😀

With the appeal for donations not going as well as either of us had hoped, it seemed as if Kristal would still be bedding down in her van, utterly immobile. But at $600, there had been just enough donated to secure this:

The camper that Kristal was able to buy from Craigslist.

The camper that Kristal was able to buy from Craigslist. It's apparently older than she is...

Kristal had told me the night before about the possibility of getting the thing, but to know that she actually had it, removing the scariest aspect of her forthcoming homelessness – the chance of dying of hypothermia in her van – is a relief, for both of us.

Thank you to everyone who helped out with Kristal’s appeal, whether it was with donations, tweeting, retweeting, or simply providing love and encouragement. And a special thanks to The Shaft for consenting to read out the announcements about Kristal that I’d added to the show notes 😀

    I am SO happy and relieved that Kristal will have a ‘roof’ over her head! Please keep us updated on anything else we can help with. 🙂
