We priced stones last week and the second smallest costs $900. It’s a flat stone measuring 24″x12″x4″, it’ll have her full name, her birth date and a short quote. They’re kicking in a rose etching for free — Rose was her middle name. The only one smaller wouldn’t have room for her full name, and costs $600.
So… I’m asking for your help. At the moment, and for the foreseeable future, we can afford half the total cost. So I’m asking everyone I know if they / you can afford to donate between $25 and $100 to the cost of the stone.
In return for whatever you can donate I’m offering copies of my photos for your wall. I guess, basically, I’m selling photos and the money I receive will go towards the cost of Evangeline’s gravestone.
I know things are tight every where, so if you can’t, you can’t. I know we can’t. But if you can, any amount would help.
For what it’s worth, if there’s any extra money, it will be going to the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Special Occasion Fund. CHEO is the hospital Evangeline would have spent the first few months of her life had she survived.
In order for this to work there is the small problem of addresses. I’m in the process of getting a PayPal account, it should be set up by early next week.
But, if you’re down for helping out, I’d be willing to exchange my address for a cheque or money order.
Just send me an email and we can set it all up. Thank you, from all of us.
