Ok to be honest, to make this worthwhile I think we need to set a goal of at least $500. especially if we want to include a bouquet which alone would be about $100 or so. I will post something to the website and to our Jane club inviting anyone interested to donate- you can donate whatever you can afford. What we could do is also include any personal notes that anyone would like to send as well- I'm going to request no gifts or artwork, just notes but if you'd like to send a little note either by email or in person, we can include that with our gift. How would that be?

Sounds good, Mary Ann. Phew, 500$, that IS a goal, but if enough fans join in it may be possible to reach.

I'm thinking if the number of people who I usually hear from when taking orders for Jane's books etc, each contribute $10, $20 or whatever, we could easily do it. For a check to be meaningful I think we have to at least try for this amount.

Please don't post about this on facebook, that's one place she may end up seeing it through one of her kids or Cheri or James etc.

Yes, that's what I thought. Especially since she already posted through Cheri's account to a friend's Jane fan profile. Laughing

Ok so if everyone is comfortable with this, those who would like to contribute can paypal me their donation and if you have a personal note to add email me privately and I will print all notes out and include with the check and a card with everyone's names. I think Joanna's idea for a check to the Open Heart Foundation is perfect- so if we are all agreed, let's go with that.

Thoughts?

Should we get an idea of how many would be interested in contributing?

We can also open it up to anyone who visits the site as well as our Jane Club which should increase donations.


I don't mean to get off the subject, but what is the Jane Club mentioned above??
