Our “Go Fund Me” Campaign

dsaa

It was just brought to my attention that my wife & I’s Go Fund Me campaign is embarrassing to a select few.

What???
Really?!

To me, embarrassment is something you inflict on yourself. No one can make you feel a certain way unless you allow it! I’ve been called all types of names. As an inmate, I am constantly labeled. As a blogger with over 12k followers, I am subjected to all kinds of judgments and opinions. But all that matters are the things I choose to focus on.

I focus on all of the love & positive feedback, not the negative. I live a life based on truth, mind, and love. My faith is so strong that nothing else can penetrate my circle of harmony. And if it does…that’s because I let it!

So, am I embarrassed of our Go Fund Me campaign?

Absolutely NOT!

Here’s the reality of the situation: I’m in prison making only $25 per month.

My wife, Suzie M. Jennings, is in California recovering from depression & anxiety. Anyone who knows about these conditions, knows how debilitating they can be. It got so bad that she had thoughts of taking her own life. On top of that, she has also been subjected to labels & stigmas concerning our relationship.

Today, my wife has come a VERY long way. Suzie is continuously showing me her growing strength. Together we work hard on getting her issues resolved so she can live a happy life.

One of our greatest joys is being together. We make one another laugh & feel good. We encourage, inspire, learn, and grow together. We give each other hope for our future.

When I first met Suzie, she didn’t even have a facebook! Now look at her…she created and manages ALL of our online platforms (3 blog sites, 5 facebook pages, twitter, 10 email accounts, several online networking sites, etc).

I am sooo proud of her. Suzie was the one with the idea to create our Go Fund Me campaign. This is significant because she took initiative to try to find a way to come see me.

There’s nothing more I’d rather see than my wife’s efforts pay off. It would give her the confidence and realization that she can accomplish anything she sets her mind to.

We have a plan. We seek funds to pay for a one month visit. During that month, Suzie will diligently search for a job so that she can move here permanently, while at the same time we will get to spend quality time together in person. We just need some initial help in making this happen. We are both at our happiest and most productive when we are together.

I know our campaign is different than the commonly seen ones out there. Our need for funds is unique to our situation.

Check out our Go Fund Me campaign. Your small donation will help in so many different ways. It will not only unite us for one month, but it will be a huge stepping stone towards Suzie making the big move to relocate.

I love my wife with all my heart & soul. She is my angel, my light, and my world. Please help unite my wife & I.

From the bottom of my heart, Thank You!

 

Sincerely,

Steven Jennings

  1. Steven and Suzie,
    I’d love to contribute but unfortunately I have my own inmate and I am the only person he has to depend on for all his needs. Luckily I will be traveling to Colorado to visit him July 28 – Aug. 18 and since my daughter lives about 1 1/2 hours away I would have the huge cost of a hotel, but visiting is still expensive.

    To everyone who think’s this is an embarrassment: Hey, There is absolutely nothing disconcerting about the Go Fund Me Campaign to help defray some of the expense for Suzie to visit Steven . Please put yourself in their place, what if this was your family member. Remember it’s so incredibly important for family’s to bond and connect.

  2. Oh my, I now get it somehow. I saw the campaign and looked at some figure there, then I saw all the followers base these awesome people have, and I couldn’t do the addition. It’s probably this ’embarrassment’ thing? Fortunately I am nor wasn’t. They don’t know me, may never see me nor my country, yet we all on this journey called life together. I never knew about Suzie’s journey, now I know and wow I have and still deal with those debilitating issues too. Yes I attempted suicide too! But yes there is hope and our widow’s mite will definitely help very very much. Please, don’t only read their content and support with words, chip in even just a 5. I really wished I had more. Dear S&S, hold on to your love and daith cause where there’s a will, there’s sure gonna be a way – be prepared to be amazed yourselves in HIS own time.
