Bye Bye Focus

Well the day arrived when the big truck drove into my neighborhood and they took it away. Yes, I am back to driving my mini-van. No more navigation and MyFordTouch. No more Handsfree phone conversations. It was really an adventure. The final donations/pledges as of today came to $5020.

Almost to $5000

Tomorrow is the last day I am insured to drive the Focus. It will be picked up on Monday. I got a $50 pledge of a donation today, so I am now $59 short of $5,000! So close! Hopefully tomorrow I will reach $5,000. I have been working on my videos for Ford. I will be finishing and posting 2 more videos for them about the Focus and Love Without Boundaries. Stay tuned for those and for news of getting to $5,000.

New Chip-In

My other Chip-in has expired. I have currently raised $4891. I have a new Chip-in for last minute donations...thanks!

Only Three More Days

I want to thank everyone who has contributed in the last 6 weeks and helped me raise over $4700 for baby formula for babies who have special dietary or Preemie needs. 100% of this money is going to this fund. I know my original goal was $10,000, which was pretty lofty! But, I am hoping now to get it over the $5000 mark. In any case, what a success! Thank you for following me. If you want to donate even a small amount that is great. Every $5, $10, $20 or whatever, adds up and has brought me to where we are today. THANK YOU SO SO VERY MUCH. I am asking for one more post, one more push, one final Tell Everyone...Then we will send this Focus home.

I DID IT!! 10,000 MILES

We left began our trip home at about 1 p.m. on Saturday and drove and drove and drove. We arrived in Eugene Oregon, probably around midnight and stopped for the night. Above is a photo I took in northern California.

Here is another photo of Northern California. I wasn't able to take a photo of the odometer when it reached 11152, which was 10,000 miles. So, I got a photo of it this morning. I got the 10,000 miles finished not too many miles from home yesterday. I have also raised $4262. I still have the car until Friday and my goal 6 weeks ends Wednesday evening. I am still hoping that I might bring in some more donations since this is going 100% to the Preemie and Special Formula Fund for Love Without Boundaries.

Below is my final Capitol Picture, in Salem Oregon. I visited 6 capitols in the last 6 weeks: Salt Lake City, UT. Salem, Oregon. Olympia, Washington. Helena, Montana. Sacramento, California and Boise, Idaho.
