Proof is in the …..

Some concern was brought up in the comments of my last post about the whole “Stacey” story possibly being a scam. I wasn’t upset by the suggestion. I did get a tad bit defensive (because, DO PEOPLE THINK I’M THAT STUPID?!), but that’s just how I am. I’m highly emotional and react without thinking things through sometimes. Ok, most times. Ok, pretty much all of the time.
I emailed the lady I had met at Target, Kim. I told her that I had no doubts, but that some people had questioned the story. (Understandably so.) She sent a reply, along with pictures. I will not post the pictures, but I will post the email, minus the personal details. I can provide anyone truly concerned with that info, but I’m hoping this will put any doubts to rest.

Yvonne: I am sending you some pic from Tx. Also,you can call the mayor’s office in San Antonio,whom I spoke with today and they will confirm her at the shelter. Also,you can speak to the charge nurses at the shelter, Pat Osborne and Karen.
If you need anything else let me know. I will send the pic asap..Kim
p.s. I am senior vice president of Coldwell Banker Commercial. XXXXX, Ca. XXXXX XXXXXXr is my boss and he will tell you, I would never lie about anything like this.

She included pictures of the shelter and of Stacey and her phone number. Also, pictures of herself at the shelter with these people.
One more thing, I spoke with Ma’Melly and asked her if it would be possible to send boxes to her and have her deliver them personally to Stacey. She was all “OF COURSE! I’D LOVE TO HELP!” So, today, she’s going to call Stacey to find out exactly where she’s staying. Email me if you were unable to have something shippped to the PO Box and I’ll put you in touch with Melly.
Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping. We are making a difference. You all are incredibly generous people.
xoxo

    I live in San Antonio and would love to help out any way I can…Just let me know what is needed…I can even drive her places if needed. I sent you an email with my contact information.

    and you, Yvonne, reached out and helped someone cope in the face of so much, all we have done is follow along behind you *S*
    thank you for making all this possible

    You are just such a generous person… it’s inspiring. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in our own needs and forget about people who are truly in need, especially when they are so far away. I think there is always the risk of being taken advantage of, but that should never stop you from caring… sometimes you have to trust that gut and do what you know is right.

    okay- What about Stacy’s cell phone……….. this is how she is staying in contact, does she have minutes on her phone, or is this a monthly bill?
    Do you know, or can you ask?
    I figure she will be getting tons of childrens items, but i want to make sure she will continue to be in touch with family, friends, etc…….
    Thanks!

    Now that she has an apartment, can you change the address for the Amazon wishlist? That way stuff could go directly to her. I have a POB and I HATE going down there to check it. I want stuff on mah doorstep. :)
