Love Offering Charity Fund Raising for Sharon French

in #upfundition7 months ago (edited)

This is a cross post from the Steem blockchain because the fund raising is mainly there as we are not certain how HIVE can be easily withdrawn to exchanges. Please read the original posting here

In the memory of @fitinfun, this is our fund raising plea

It was heart wrenching yesterday to hear that one of the much well respected Steemian has passed away on 28 March, 2020.

It was even more saddening when we got news from @happycrazycon that she left the world with hardly anything left, used up her cash to buy medication and now, left with full of debt that needs to be cleared.

@iamjadeline has been one of the closest contact to her in Kuala Lumpur and has been silently absorbing whatever liability that Sharon might have owed, from utility bills to rent even; and if you have followed her stories before, you will know she too has so much on her plate to handle especially her younger son has health challenges.

Therefore we have decided try at least raise some funds here in order to lessen the burden @iamjadeline is facing, juggling between Sharon's old place with the landlord and her family who's now the food truck business is effected during MCO.

If you could, spare a few steem, to help Sharon one last time...

Till now we have no news of the whereabouts of her son and her siblings she gave contact to the Embassy; and while Jadeline (and another close friend of Sharon) patiently waits for the news, they have to deal with all the bills and cleanups.

So far the place Sharon (@fitinfun) stayed, if you have read her blogs before, you will know the place was not in its best condition and she was too weak to have it sparkling cleaned all the time. During her stay at the hospital and her travels, her deserted place has turned quite topsy-turvy and the landlord, even though knowing that she has passed, is no longer able to absorb the cleaning service charges, and there's still an outstanding rent that hasn't been settled.

All in all, Sharon @fitinfun needed about 200 USD (1420 STEEM at present exchange rate) just to settle rent and utility bills, and no one could access to her Steem account to power down to settle the bills at the moment.

(All her belongings are currently locked up in the hospital until the next of kin comes to reclaim her body)


Therefore, we would hope that any kindhearted steemian would be able to donate a few steem at hand as her final gift - from the community.

Presently, the Daily Bread Food Bank only have this about of liquidated funds while all are locked up; and all these will be donated for @fitinfun's passing.

We hope to reach 1420 STEEM so that we can help her one last time, as the loving community she knew and came to love.


How to help?

  • Log in to Steemit Wallet
  • Send to @gtpjfoodbank account with the Memo: "in Memory of Sharon"
  • Comment here in case we haven't check our wallet. It's a little hard to access to the Steem wallet these days.

Unfortunately with recent retraction of support of @fundition, we no longer have much to help liquidate everything for Sharon to help her; therefore every STEEM you can spare would be of great help.

All the STEEM will be converted into MYR later and will be transferred to @iamjadeline to help settle Sharon's outstanding bills.

We would like to thank you in advance for your time of reading this, your donations, and your thoughts for Sharon's family.

We would also like to thank @happycrazycon for keeping @littlenewthings updated, and once again @iamjadeline for all she had done her best to help Sharon during her life in Kuala Lumpur; last but not least, the Hospital Kuala Lumpur for doing their best to treat her until her last days.

This is such a sad news. 😢

I have just uninstalled my Steemit app, and it is easier for me to give Hive instead. But you are right, Steem is easier to exchange. However, when I checked my Steem Wallet, I do not have Steem anymore. So, I do not have a choice but to donate Hive.

Yes it is @gingbabida . We have no idea how to get the HIVE converted just yet.
But thank you anyways, we will send the HIVE tokens over to Jadeline later.

Best wishes,
Daily Bread Food Bank.

Our target has been achieved as well for STEEM

Oh gosh, this is really sad. I am sure the community will come through. RIP Sharon <3

Saddest bit of the year - she was such a hardworking content creator here on the block chain ecosystem. May she dine with them Angels.

She has set a very high standard in this community for excellent content.
