[Life] A Christmas Collection (formerly friend-locked)
[Note 12/25/2004 7:12 PM: This post was previously locked so that only my friends besides Indigo could read it. Now that the gift is given, though, I've made the post public.]

Okay, I've never made a friend-locked post before, but this one's gonna be a bit different. See, this post is filtered so everyone on my friends list can see it except indigoskynet. (I hope I set it up right.) Please keep it a secret from her, okay?

You see, I'm taking up a collection for a Christmas present for her. By the 25th, I hope to have collected enough money that she can have her name legally changed. She really dislikes her given name (Edit: And that post is friend-locked, so only about ten people on my list can see it. -_-), but has never had the money to spare to get it changed.

All of the information is on this page. I've been sending e-mails to folks who have indigoskynet friended, and the total to date is $110. *grin* Even if you've never heard of her, take my word. She's a real sweetheart, a lot of crap happens to her that she doesn't deserve (her apartment got robbed a year ago today, for example), and I'd just like to brighten up her holiday.

Oh, this is in lieu of that Christmas gift meme that's going around. I really can't think of anything I want that I haven't already put on the Christmas list I gave my family. ^_^ So if you desperately want to give me a gift (ha), you can help me out with this collection, either by sending a couple dollars or by sending the page to anyone you think would be interested.

Thanks, everyone!

Shay, I just had to take a moment to say that this is a completely nice thing you are doing. There need to be more people like you. ^_^ *hugs*

*BLUSH* Thank you so much for the compliment. *^_^* I got the idea really out of nowhere, and then it just stuck in the back of my brain until I started carrying it out. I think I ought to make a habit of listening to ideas like this.

Her journal must be friends only: I can't access the link about her name.

Bah, you're right. She doesn't make a lot of posts that are locked, so I didn't even think about it. *rolls eyes* Sorry about that.
