Hello fellow LJ’s
I’ve been here on this forum for quite some time now, and have found it to be one of the greatest communities on the internet I have been involved with. With that being said, this probably the only site I feel comfortable sharing this story with.
My Grandmother is on a fixed income, and has had my Uncle and his wife leeching off of her for years. Well, for the most part everything has gone well, until yesterday her main sewer line backed up. A friend went to attempt and snake it, and he said that it probably is tree roots grown into the line, and it is going to require them to dig it up and replace it.
Well, that’s where I come in. I can’t afford to help her out with any money, but I do have one thing, and that is my woodworking. My Mother and I have come up with the idea to hold a raffle to raise money to help her pay for the repairs. My Mother is finishing a quilt (which I will have pictures of tomorrow) and I am donating a bowl I have made to raffle off.
We are planning on selling raffle tickets for $2 each, and we are hoping to raise at least a few hundred dollars or more to help offset the costs.
If anyone here at Lumberjocks would be interested in buying a raffle ticket or 3, please private message me for details on how to get yours. Also, I will pay shipping to anywhere in the U.S. if you do win, so you don’t have to worry about any extra costs involved if you do win. I will attach a picture of the quilt that will be part of the raffle once I get it, but my Mother does excellent work and I can assure you, it will be beautiful.
Thanks for looking.
