Jackie and Grandma Broccoli

The next project has already begun and I am way behind....

We have begun a $ collection for Matt's friend Jackie who lost her husband due to a Pulmonary Embolism the same day as Liz passed away. The plan is to send checks to a wonderful lady named Maureen who will collect the money and will get an American Express check to send to Jackie to help pay for expenses. If you are interested in donating to Jackie please contact Maureen at

Our second collection is towards a plane ticket for Grandma Broccoli. That collection is being headed up by Becky our faithful collector for the last creeptificate. Her e-mail address for more information is

One final and important detail the contact e-mail for the blog has changed to

Thanks in advance to all of you who donate. It is much appreciated.

Long Overdue Update!!!

First of all I want to apologize for being absent here...this summer has been far too busy and my mind far too scattered. But I am back...and still as committed as ever to helping Matt, Madeline, and anyone else who gets brought to mine/our attention.

Secondly, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone that sent donations to the Awesome Auntie Deb fund. We raised $1000 which is incredible! After some discussion there was a little change in the plans of what exactly to do with the money. We ended up with a $500 Southwest Airline gift certificate for Deb and then $500 was given to Matt, GMa Candee, Gpa Tom G, and Deb as a combo gift for a special dinner out while they are in the Banff. Our dear creepy friend Becky made the delivery to the Goodman house last week and they were overwhelmed to say the least! Thank you all so much for your generosity!!!

Third, we continue to brainstorm ideas for future projects...I believe something may be in the works soon for Gma Brocolli as well as Matt's friend Jackie. I will continue to update as I know things. Keep the ideas coming!

I hope all of your summers are coming to a wonderful close...much love to all of you!
