So, I had this idea pop up in my head earlier. My step sister is one of the leaders for Heart and Stroke, so I COULD host a fundraiser online to raise money for this cause. Basically, I'd have people donate money to my Paypal, and those who did, I'd write down their names. At the end of the fundraiser, I'd draw a name, and the person who's name is picked, would get a drawing of their choice from me. Here's a fun thing I'll throw in. People who donate $5-$9 will get 2 entries, people who donate $10-$14 will get 3 entries, those who donate $15-$19 will get 4 entries, and so on. I've raised money for this cause before, but through my old job(I was chosen as one of the top 5 people who raised the most money, and got a mug out of it, lmao).
Now, for the story as to why I'm so passionate about this cause:
My father was 49, single, lived on his own in a small apartment. He was facing eviction as he had lost his job, however, his friend was going to hire him. My sister and I had kind of made matters worse by getting into a fight with him(I deeply regret it to this day), and he had the brilliant idea of going a day or 2 without coffee after he spent years drinking 3+ a day.Late March, we got the news that my father was in the hospital and he was very sick. I thought nothing of it because he'd been sick before. My aunt then told me that he was probably not going to make it. She told me about how he had a stroke, all alone in his apartment. He had tried to phone 911, but passed out before he could say anything. The operators traced the phone number, but that just lead them to my grandmother who had to give directions to his place. They found my father unconscious in his bedroom and quickly took him to the waiting ambulance. He stopped breathing en route to the hospital, when they got him there, they put him on life support. The day we went to see him, we were brought to a little room, where a nurse came in and told us all the information, that he had blood pooled in the back of his head, damaging his brain beyond repair. My aunt told me he had a bunch of tubes and wires connected to prepare me, but told me it wasn't anything scary. At last, we were brought to his room in the ICU, my original plan was to stop outside his room and gather myself before going in to see him, I was surprised to find that there were glass walls, so I saw him before I could ready myself. The tubes were making him breath, and it looked so unnatural... I couldn't bring myself to talk to him or touch him for a while, when I finally did, I told him that I loved him, and held his hand. He twitched, and scared me, to which I snapped my hand back and burst into tears.
He died April 2, 2009.
I don't want anyone else to have to go through that, so, this is my way of lending a hand to those who suffer from this. To those affected by this.
What do you guys think? Good idea?
